“Now is the only thing that matters, because everything you experience is now.” ~Mary Ann Pack
For a long time, I struggled with understanding about the concept of being in the now. I would listen and read the life transformational gurus like Eckhart Tolle, Bob Proctor, and Abraham-Hicks saying that everything you experience in is the now and that we are to focus on the now—the present, but I kept getting confused.
I thought I was being present in the now, but this concept just didn’t resonate with me.
Then I was listening to an Abraham-Hicks video and their explanation started making sense. It was the a-ha moment I was looking for. Abraham explained it so simply. So, here goes….
No matter what we are thinking about—whether it’s from the past, present or future—is happening in the now. Prior to this I believed, if I’m thinking about the past, I’m just thinking about the past and it really has nothing to do with my now, my present circumstances. If I was thinking about something I projected into the future—a future desire or event—I was simply thinking about future events that really didn’t affect my present situation.
I finally understood what the now really is. No matter what I’m thinking about it’s all happening now! (*duh! Lightbulb!) I know this may be kids-play for you, but this was my a-ha moment. Even if I’m thinking about something that happened in the past—I’m living it now through my thought energy. I’m activating it in my now by the attention and energy I’m giving to it. If I’m projecting thoughts about future desired events—I’m living it now through my vibration of thought!
Einstein said everything is energy. So, of course, our thoughts are energy. Thoughts are vibrating, living things—now! Every thought affects us now because they are happening…well, now!
Every time we think a thought—no matter the subject or time sequence—we are activating it right now. There really is no past or future—there is only now!
To understand that there is really no past or future is a little hard to grasp when our lives are so structured around linear time. Yet, there is no past or future in the eternal. There is only now. Since we are eternal beings, we are certainly tied to the concept of no time—we just don’t think about it much.
Knowing what I’ve learned about vibration and frequency, I understand that everything is energy so everything is vibrating. I know that our thoughts are energy and are affecting us moment by moment. I know that our dominant thoughts attract our life experiences in this world governed by the universal law of attraction. So, I was finally able to grasp that everything I do or think is solely happening now.
If I dredge up something unpleasant from the past, I’m putting it into my now. Yuck! Because I understand that our thoughts activate attraction of more of the same essence—I really don’t want more of that in the life I want to create!
If I start worrying about something bad happening in the future—the negative what-if’s—I’m including that into my now which is creating my life. Double yuck!!
The universe is not governed by the concept of time, nor does it understand that what you are thinking and feeling has already happened in the past or is happening now or has not happened yet. In other words, the universe simply matches the vibrational frequencies we are emitting by our thoughts and feelings. It doesn’t know if it’s real or not.
If we are emitting a strong, consistent good-feeling vibration, the universe matches it with the same essence. If we are emitting a strong, consistent bad-feeling vibration, the universe matches that. The universe doesn’t know if what we are thinking about has happened or has not happened. The universe simply feels the dominant, consistent vibration and matches what it feels from us through our thoughts.
Abraham says that the universe doesn’t understand words, it understands what we mean. I take that as the universe solely focuses on our feelings, our vibrations. If you were to say, “I don’t want to be fat anymore. I want to lose weight,” the universe would understand your feelings about the subject of the sentences. The subject in these two sentences that you have strong feelings about is “fat” and “weight”. So, to me, the universe is feeling “fat” and “weight” and gives you more of that vibration.
From my understanding, I would think it far better to say, “I am thankful for my body and it knows exactly what to do to be healthy and thin.” Now, the universe is understanding the meaning of “body” and “healthy and thin” and is responding with more of that vibrational match.
So…the moral to this story is to think about things now that we want to include in the life we are designing. A life we love living. A life that brings meaning and joy and appreciation.
No matter what we are focusing on, it is activating a vibration in us now. Our now produces our life experiences. The point is that we can create our life on purpose or by design when we diligently direct our thoughts and energy towards things that are pleasing or on the desires we would like to experience.
Let go of anything in your past that makes you feel bad. If you keep holding on to past experiences in your now, you activate its vibrational attraction into the life you’re creating. If you want less of it, stop thinking about it, stop talking about it to others, stop posting about it on your social media. The less energy of thought you give to something unwanted, it slowly, but surly, fades and loses power.
You can never worry yourself to a better life either! If you’re playing the what-if game from a negative standpoint, you are attracting the essence of all that crap right into your life. The universe is only matching your vibration, yet you will come to believe the proof that you are being shown. That life really does suck!
Yet, you could turn it around and play the what-if game from a positive perspective and you would be shown proof that life is wonderful! The universe is simply answering your call to whatever your dominant thoughts project vibrationally.
In the end, you are solely responsible for the outcome you experience in your life by what you are activating in your now. If you are mindful of your feelings, you can monitor your thoughts more easily. When you notice that you are feeling crappy, it’s time to pay attention to what your thoughts have been and simply choose better-feeling thoughts. Bringing all those great vibrations into your now!
