Get in the GrooveMake attraction a habit.
When you continue to focus upon any thought, it becomes increasingly easy to continue to focus upon it because the Law of Attraction is making more thoughts like it available to you. And so, emotionally speaking, you are developing a mood or an attitude.
Vibrationally speaking, you are achieving a habitual vibrational groove, so to speak—or a set-point.
Your mood is showing you a good representation of what you are inviting into your experience. Your mood, or your general feeling about something, is a clear indication of your practiced vibration. In other words, whenever any subject is activated within you through your exposure to your environment, your vibration jumps immediately to your most practiced vibrational place, or set-point.
For example, let us say that when you were a child, your parents experienced severe financial difficulty. And so, the lack of money and the inability to purchase desired things was often discussed in your home, with the accompanying emotions of worry and fear. Often, in response to your request for something, you were told that “money doesn’t grow on trees,” and that “just because you want it doesn’t mean you’ll get it,” and that “you, like everyone else in this family, should learn to do without. That is just the way that it is. . . . ”
Because of years of exposure to these thoughts of “lack,” your habit of thought around the subject of money—your Emotional Set-Point— became one of low expectation of financial success. And so, whenever you thought about money or abundance, your mood or attitude would immediately shift to disappointment, worry, or anger.
Or, when you were a child, maybe your friend’s mother was killed in an automobile accident, and then your close association with someone who was experiencing such severe childhood trauma made you fearful for the Well-Being of your own parents. Whenever they traveled somewhere by automobile, you would be gripped by fear until they returned. And so, bit by bit, you developed a habit of worry about the Well-Being of those you loved. Your Emotional Set-Point became that of insecurity.
Or, when you were a teenager, perhaps your grandmother suddenly died of a heart attack. And in the years that followed her death, you often heard your mother expressing her concern about the high probability of the same thing happening to her and her children (including you!). Nearly every time any conversation about your grandmother came up, her untimely heart attack became an emotional—and fear-producing—part of the conversation.
Even though your body was strong and you continued to feel physically good, a concern about your own physical vulnerability rumbled under the surface. And so, over time, you achieved an Emotional Set- Point of physical vulnerability.
