“The power of affirmations
is telling a new story
until it becomes your story."
— Albert K. Strong
I was minding my own business, and then, that song from My Fair Lady, I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face, popped into my head. Or rather, I should say that the melody for the first line popped into my head, but it was attached to these words instead: I've grown accustomed to this place. Of course, like so many musical interludes in my head like that, it refused to leave.
And, it's true, isn't it? We grow accustomed to that place. This place, that place, the other place. Just because something is a negative story, it doesn't mean that it isn't also a comfort zone. There is comfort in this place… I've grown accustomed to this place…
When we tell the same story, we get the same results. It's always moving because everything is energy, but it keeps becoming that story again and again. I'm sure you know people who are like that, where their story is that all these things are just happening to them without their control.
Abraham, Esther Hicks says that the most powerful law in the universe is the Law of Attraction, or that which is like unto itself is drawn. That is how a story keeps drawing the same results. The energy of the thoughts and feelings are the same, though the circumstances may change slightly, and like it is on cue, in rolls more of the same vibrational situations to match what is offered.
It always works. It doesn't play favorites. We ask we receive. But, the good news is that good news comes the same way and in the same quantity and quality of our asking energy. So, paying attention to what we want is of primary importance. It is like telling a new story–one that is more to our liking.
