The other day I saw great quote from Lao-tzu, the ancient Chinese philosopher who wrote the Tao Te Ching. (Although there is some question as to whether he was the actual author.)

The quote:

“In order to eliminate the negative influences, simply ignore them.”

I love it! It’s ancient wisdom still being taught today, albeit in more modern form.

A good example is Abraham, the spirit group channelled by Esther Hicks. One of my favorite Abraham quotations (they were talking about physical diseases) is this:

“Take your attention from the negative evidence (of disease), and it will leave your experience.”

My spirit guides have said pretty much the same thing over the years, also speaking about physical diseases. Here’s one of their quotes:

“You could come down with a dozen of the most dreadful diseases known to humanity, all terminal. And if, by some means or another, you could completely distract yourself from the dis-eases, your bodies would quickly heal themselves.”

All these wise beings are (obviously) saying if we take our attention from what we do not want, it will vanish from our experience.

Whenever my spirit guides and I say things like that, either publicly or in private readings, we usually get objections. They generally go something like this: “But life can’t be that simple!”

Our response is usually something like this: “Well, that’s the way Law of Attraction works.”

Here are a few questions for you to ponder:

  • Do you believe all that?
  • Can removing something unwanted from your life be so easy?
  • Can life be that simple?

Maybe paying attention to what we’re paying attention to is a good thing.
