“Have you ever noticed some people just seem to have good fortune? They are lucky. Good things happen for them, to them and they always seem to be in the right place at the right time. They find money. They win prizes and awards. They seem blessed.
While it could be that they are, a better answer is that their brain is in tune with good fortune. This is part of what our Reticular Activating System does for us. It finds matches in our experience, and in the outer world, based on our mindset and filters.
A major concern of the RAS is to find out what is wrong, to notice that, so we keep safe. It scans the world checking for anything that could be problematic. It works on our behalf. Its other ability is to find matches with our point of view, our paradigm, our mindset.
Diligence Is The Mother Of Good Fortune
From our attitude, or our outlook on life, it finds matches in the real world and from our past experiences. It provides us examples. If you ask, ‘how come I am so uncoordinated?’ your brain will search to provide you the reasons, from your past, why you are as you think.
Whether you actually are or not, as long as you believe it, your brain will find it. On the other hand if you were to ask, ‘how come I am so fabulous?’ your brain would search to find those reasons and examples as well. The technical word is Transderivational Search.
You don’t have to know the word. It just means your subconscious does things outside of your awareness. It searches and comes up with the matches based on what you are consciously, and even unconsciously, paying attention to or focusing on.
Henceforth I Ask Not For Good Fortune – I Am Good Fortune
That is why we say, ‘what you focus on you get,’ or ‘energy flows where attention goes,’ or ‘you become what you think about.’ Your brain works to prove you right. It provides you the evidence based on the requests you make. It doesn’t care what the answers are.
If we have a positive happy mindset it finds positive happy things. If our outlook is negative it finds those. It does so based on our conditioning from birth onward. It is based on what we are thinking and especially what we are feeling. Feelings are most important.
This is why, Law Of Attraction proponents state ‘you attract back what you are putting out.’ From the brain research standpoint this makes sense then. You do get what you focus on. You do get more back of what you put out. Birds of a feather do flock together.
Energy Flows Where Goes – What You Focus On Expands
So you want to manage your thoughts and feelings and feel or vibrate the very highest or most positive, using LOA vernacular. Get it? You can find more opportunities and positivity if you start from a positive place. That means you have to take action. Yes, YOU do.
You have to do something. You can’t continue to do what you have thought, felt and done because you will continue to get back what you always have. To change you must change things. You must act first and start thinking and feeling differently. You initiate it.
You can’t wait and hope because you will only get back more waiting and hoping. There is no one ‘out there’ doing it to you or for you. It is all your doing. You are responsible. You initiate the action, plant the seeds and reap the results. It is all up to you. Take responsibility.
