When you expect something, it is on the way. When you believe something, it is on the way. When you fear something, it is on the way. You attitude or mood is always pointing towards what is coming, but you are never stuck with your current point of attraction. Just because you have picked up these thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and moods along your physical trail does not mean that you have to continue attracting in response to them. You have creative control of your own experience. And, by paying attention to your own Emotional Guidance System, you can change your point of attraction.
If there are things in your experience that you no longer wish to experience, your beliefs must change. If there are things that are not in your experience that you want to bring into your experience, your beliefs must change. There is no condition so severe that you cannot reverse it by choosing different thoughts. However, choosing different thoughts requires focus and practice. If you continue to focus as you have been, to think as you have been, and to believe as you have been, then nothing in your experience will change.
