Doing It Differently in 2015

As we journey into this new year, many of us envision so much more for our lives. The beginning of a year is a great time to give thanks for what has been, and to look forward to experiencing more fully the vision for our lives.

But how do we do it differently? There is an inherent inertia in the human experience that seems to sabotage most people within a week or two of the new year, when old habits and patterns seem to resurface and we are right back where we were despite our best intentions and great hopes for something better.

Doing it differently really begins with being different. Anything else is just window dressing as the saying goes. So what does it mean to be different, and how do we be different? Being different requires a fundamental shift at the feeling level of our being. Rather than just setting a goal to be, do, or have something different, we enter into the vibration of the newness that we desire.

The vibration of what we desire is the feeling tone of it. We need to ask ourselves, what would it feel like to be, do, or have the desired good? When we uncover how we would feel if what we want were real right now, then we enter into that feeling. We evoke that feeling within us right now through the use of our imagination. The more we can feel that right now, the more real it becomes for us. In doing so, we are aligning with the vibration of our desired good.

The vibration about which I am speaking is the invisible substance that now takes form as we align with it. It is the substance that is spoken of in the scripture from Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” We have evidence of our good before it even arrives through our experience of its vibration. We are already experiencing it at a feeling level, so we have evidence that it is real. Aligning with the vibration is what actually brings the “substance” of it into form.

The more we align with the vibration, or feeling tone, of that which we desire, the more we become something different. And when we become something different, now our life will change in the direction of what we have become.

The human inertia that might have set in when we only worked on the outer with our goals is now neutralized, because at a deep level we truly are different as we move toward our goals, intentions, or resolutions.

The real beauty is that by becoming something different, we not only have the power to transform ourselves, but also to transform our world.

Happy New You! It is already turning out to be a great year!

Love and blessings,
Gregory

  1. I’m thinking about this a lot – “we enter into the vibration of the newness that we desire.”

    This happened to me last night when I was rewatching Zeitgeist Addendum. I realised my faith in the alternative that I am seeking. It invigorated me and I think I got a step closer because now I know I will not forget about the feeling. The newness vibrated in me.

    Thank you, Gregory. I may write something based on the idea of newness vibrations.
