Every emotion has a corresponding vibrational frequency that
is either supportive or counter-supportive to the creative
fulfillment of our goals.
We use the terms positive or negative, good or bad when
describing our emotions and our experiences. Unfortunately,
our language is inadequate because these terms indicate
judgment. Judgment then indicates that somehow this 'thing'
that we've created is either good or bad for us, when in
fact everything is always, "all good" because it is always a
part of our Divine Path, and as such cannot be 'wrong' or
When we accept that we are on our Divine Path, we launch
into a higher vibrational state that allows us to create
with greater velocity. On the flip side, when we resist
what is, we launch into an equally powerful vibrational
velocity but in the opposite direction of our dreams.
In Dr. David Hawkin's book, Power Vs. Force, Dr. Hawkin's
has calibrated the levels of consciousness (emotional scale)
with the science of applied kinesiology.
On his map of consciousness, as it's called, Desire is at a
level of 125 (on a scale of 0 to 1000). This means that
Desire is 75 degrees South of the first ascending (or
positive) emotion, which is courage at a level of 200. When
you look at the map, it becomes remarkably clear where you
are in relationship to the essence of your desire. When you
know where you are on the map, you can choose to take the
steps to get to your destination of choice both physically
and emotionally (vibrationally).
Negative, in conscious creation terminology does not mean
'bad'. Therefore, it's not that desire is a 'bad' thing but
it is 'negative' in its ability to magnetize. Desire is the
launching pad upon which a conscious creator begins to build
and attract their dreams. However, desire alone is simply
not enough for the creative force of magnetic attraction to
work in our affirmative favor.
Desire still vibrates in the 'negative' because it is a
descending emotion hatched out of a 'lack' point of view;
the realization or acknowledgement that what we currently
have isn't everything that we want.
This is NOT a bad thing and in fact compared to the lower
level emotions of fear, grief, apathy, guilt and shame it's
extremely positive! The shifting of our perspective from
what is to what we want (desire) is a crucial, necessary,
inescapable component of conscious creation. Therefore,
in no way is 'desire' to be perceived as something to fear
or avoid. However, desire is only the starting point; the
beginning of the new creation.
For example, if you've ever experienced modest to severe
depression or know anyone who has, then you know there's
nothing that a person who is depressed desires more than to
be happy; they want and desire desperately to feel better.
However, their desire to feel better isn't enough to make it
so. Research has shown that individuals who are depressed
are far more likely to solicit negative feedback that
confirms their feelings about themselves than to solicit
positive feedback. (Source: Self-Verification in Clinical
Depression: The Desire for Negative Evaluation, from The
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 1996, Vol. 105, No. 3, 358-
Knowing what we know about the Law of Attraction, if desire
were enough to 'consciously create' then depressed
individuals would be inspired to seek positive feedback that
supports their desire, not the opposite.
Anyone that has overcome depression has taken their desire
to the next level. They have moved up their emotional
scale. They've transformed their desire into emotions with
greater attractive abilities such as anger and pride (still
vibrational descending but not as "negative" as desire
Then, if they continue up the emotional scale to total
recovery, they will transform their depression by taking
their desire into the realms of courage, willingness,
acceptance, reason, and finally into love, joy, peace and
Metaphysical teachers agree that desire is a necessary
ingredient for change. However, they will also agree that
it is not only desire that is necessary for conscious
creation but desire and allowing (see Abraham); desire and
expectation (see A Course in Miracles), desire and faith
(see any religious text).
When combined with allowing, detachment, courage,
willingness, joy, love, peace, and certainty, desire is
productive and positively creative. When desire is
launched without these vibrations of expectancy and
confidence, it is still creative but not as optimally
positive and transformative.
Jim Carrey, America's funny man whose movie credits include
Ace Venture, Dumb and Dumber, Bruce Almighty, The Truman
Show, etc., used both the Law of Attraction and Desire when
he wrote himself a $20,000,000.00 check and put it into his
Then, he took that desire and added a fine heaping of
courage, willingness, optimism, and tenacity. He boldly
auditioned and knocked on doors until someone gave him a
chance to 'do his thing'. It has been reported that when
he was just 10 years old, he submitted his resume to the
Carol Burnett show.
When he signed the contract for The Cable Guy, he was
awarded the honor of being the first comedian to earn $20
Million for a film. Do you think it was coincidence or
Again, desire is important, positive and essential when
applying the Spiritual Laws of the Universe. And, without
the other ingredients of 'courage, willingness, allowing,
certainty, faith, etc.' it is only a launching pad hosting a
dream that never gets the opportunity to fly.
