When your activated thoughts are general and not very focused, those early vibrations are still very small and do not yet have much attraction power or pulling power, so to speak. And so, in these early stages, you would not likely see any manifested evidence of your attention to the subject. But even though you do not yet see the evidence, the attraction of other thoughts that are a vibrational match to these is occurring.

In other words, the thought is becoming stronger; its pulling power is getting stronger, and other similar thought vibrations are joining it. And, as the thought gains momentum, you now begin to get an emotional reading on how well this growing thought-vibration is matching the Energy of your Source. If it matches who you are, your good-feeling emotions indicate that. If it does not match who you are, your bad-feeling emotions indicate that.

For example, when you were little, your grandmother may have said to you, “You are such a wonderful child. I love you so very much. You will have a fulfilling and happy life. You have so many talents, and the world will benefit by your presence.” These words felt good because they were a vibrational match to what was at the very core of you.

But when someone says to you, “You are bad. You should be ashamed of yourself. You have displeased me. You are inappropriate,” these words feel awful because your attention to them has caused you to become vibrationally different from who you really are and what you really know.

The way you feel is a clear and accurate indication of your alignment, or misalignment, with your Source Energy. In other words, your emotions let you know if you are allowing, or if you are in a current state of resistance to, your connection with Source.
