On The Zine Scene

  If you feel a certain way, and you’d rather feel another way, you’ve got to make a change. You can change your surroundings, which may help, but when it comes down to it, it’s all in your head. You can’t stand in the same place with the same state of mind and expect things to get better. You have to pivot (either literally or metaphorically speaking). Jerry and Esther Hicks use a process called “pivoting,” which simply means turning your attention from what you’re feeling now (bad thoughts) to how you’d like to feel (good thoughts). They teach us that holding a single thought for seventeen seconds will attract a similar thought of the same shape, size and vibration (it is Law). I have created this workbook to aid you in focusing your attention on how you WANT to feel, instead of dwelling on your current state of mind. It’s all in your head. If you want to feel good, choose good thoughts. This booklet allow you to focus on the positive aspects and (hopefully) aid you in pivoting to a better feeling emotion. Twenty eight pages.
