Mastering Distraction: the art of getting what you want
Are you a master distractor?
Chances are, you are much better at this than you think. And this is a
Over the last few years, we really have mastered the art of
distraction...distracting ourselves from the relentless discomfort of
What IS, so we can allow What Can BE to come fully into form. And in
mastering this metaphysical game, we learned that the more fun we
have, the easier it is to play.
We also learned in the beginning that the only way to jump from one
vibrational reality (or set of potentials) to another is to:
1) Ask/intend for something better
2) Make peace with where we are...to cease feeding the present
discomfort of "not having" with the energy of our attention/focus
3) Align with the vibration of what is desired (aka LOA: that which is
likened unto itself is drawn)
4) Allow it to come to be thru complete detachment (trust/neutrality)
Suddenly seems like a lot of steps, doesn't it?
Luckily there is now an easier way.
The Vernal Equinox in March brought with it the activation of a new
set of diagnostic codes which initiated a more complete merging of the
male/female (manifest/unmanifest) polarities within us. For many of
you, the integration of these energies in cellular form is what will
result in the complete vibrational alignment with your divine
Because of this deeper alignment with source, you may be noticing that
it is becoming increasingly less important to pay conscious attention
to getting what you want. In fact, you may have noticed that small
manifestations are still arriving rather effortlessly and with
It's even becoming easier to see how cocreation really has very little
to do with consciously intending for better specific realities since
it is our spiritual nature to continually create and recreate higher
and better experiences...to be, do and have all the things we desire
that will make life more enjoyable and expand or enhance our potential
expressions of divinity.
In other words, our desires are really nothing we need to think about
or plan any more...they just are. And when we get completely out of
the way, they are fulfilled.
Conscious cocreation really requires a more holistic approach based in
overall vibrational sustainability, as opposed to the fragmented
version of manifestation that is so readily taught today. It is about
becoming conscious of the truth...that we create our reality... taking
responsibility for that role by acknowledging our past unconscious
choices, cleaning up our vibration by letting go of discord...and the
rest is about allowing something better to arrive.
Which, is where most people trip up.
So if we no longer need to consciously intend for what we
desire...what do we do while we are "waiting" for our intentions to
In a sense... nothing.
But nothing is really hard to (not) do in human form since we are
generally programmed to always be doing something...and when we are
doing nothing it is way too easy to focus upon the discomfort of What
Is, or the waiting for What Will Be, which in turn creates more
discomfort and more waiting, etc., etc., ad infinitum.
The trick to this trade is exactly what we have been doing all along
during our individual and collective ascent into higher
consciousness...simply distracting ourselves from What Is to allow
What Wants to Be.
Intuitively we knew that in order to experience a better reality, we
needed to completely disconnect from the one at hand, so we could then
feed and nurture a new and higher reality...but this was so much
easier said than done.
The truth in this concept actually comes very natural for parents and
babies...think about how often and successfully we distract children
from any unpleasantness to quickly lift their attention to a better-
feeling place. Or my fav... when a toddler falls and then looks around
to see who is contributing to their reality of pain before they cry.
Many times a baby will only cry when someone acknowledges their
suffering... so what happens if the suffering is overlooked?
A profound shift happens...
When we make peace with What Is... that is to say we offer no
resistance by avoiding the temptation of e-motion-al attachment... the
unpleasantness quickly passes by.
The same holds true for managing the time between the What Is and What
Will Be of our intended realities: If we cease to resist (feel
discouraged by/get attached to) the present by knowing that it is
temporary, while distracting ourselves with ANY better-feeling thought
or experience... the unpleasant feelings fade and we are immediately
aligned with Source again... freed up to experience the vibration of
goodness which in turn expedites the handling of our universal
And just to be clear, distraction is NOT in opposition to
presence...it is the key that unlocks the source vibration within us
and allows us to effortlessly access and play with the future
potentials of desire. Distraction is brilliant for immediately
releasing us from the heaviness of what is by focusing our attention
on anything else that feels good.
So as the equinox period draws to a close with the full moon in
balancing libra and with the celebration of the ascension of christ-
consciousness approaching, we find ourselves still in the familiar
void, teetering between the worlds of What Was and What Will Be.
And along with the void always comes the physical integration, which
we are still in the throes of (extreme fatigue/flu-like symptoms/
vertigo/back aches/soreness/muscle weakness/digestion disturbances/
appetite changes/ect.) as we complete another remarkable biological
So be sure to put the finishing touches on any preparatory plans for
your very new physical lives. Our connections and inspiration will
soon return and in even greater ways, but... for a few moments
longer...we gotta keep practicing the fine art of distraction while
focusing on that better-feeling place...
We're so, so close!
