It has been my experience that how I think and feel greatly influences what happens to me in the outside world. A lot has been said about Law of Attraction over the last few years and I have to say that it makes sense to me. This blog post was inspired by an article I read recently by the amazing LOA coach Melody Fletcher on her site . I agree wholeheartedly with what she said and I realized I never broached the subject on my own blog. An issue that I feel is often overlooked in the attraction process, something that is misunderstood -- something I still struggle with and I am sure it is the same for many people exploring this idea.
One of the main cruxes of this whole attraction thing is how we feel and we are told that we need to feel good, we need to feel as if what we want is already ours. We are told that we have limitless possibilities and that we can create whatever life we want for ourselves, regardless of our current circumstances. If we can feel it and believe it, it is ours. I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment and if you have ever explored what the most successful people have revealed about their own thought processes, you will see they share this view.
I am using money as an example because I think this is one of the things people want to attract most and presents the greatest struggle . In theory, if your life is falling apart around you and you are broke, you can totally do a dramatic shift and start adopting a level of feeling that you can be a millionaire without a care in the world. In reality though, most of us probably cannot do that based on our past faulty programming, poor self-image and lack of faith in a set of principles that most people deem nonsense. If we were capable of raising our vibration that high so quickly, we would probably not be having any of the problems we are having in the first place. Because you can create whatever life you desire, some advocates of law of attraction will tell you to visualize yourself as a millionaire even if you just lost your job and are scrounging to get by. Again, some people may be able to do this successfully and if so, go for it. But, if that much of a leap feels uncomfortable for you, thinking those thoughts are counterproductive because your feelings will still be at the level of ‘’I have no money and I am in a complete panic, how the hell will I ever be a millionaire?’’
The feelings you are probably having now and the feelings you need to authentically reflect that type of belief are REALLY far away from each other. You may be affirming over and over again that you can be a millionaire, but chances are your feelings are nowhere near the vibration of this thought. At this moment in time, it is unlikely that you truly believe this and it is how you feel that determines what you bring to you. Does your current circumstances mean you can never be rich? Of course not….some of the richest people in the world started off with less than nothing. But, you will improve your circumstances a lot faster if you reach for thoughts that you can actually buy into, such the belief that you will find a higher paying job or more abstract thoughts such as you will attract money from an unknown source or that the Universe will provide you what you need.
This does not illustrate lack of faith in the process or that you are only capable of going so far based on your current circumstances. It simply acknowledges that based on your current feelings, you may need to gradually work up to these grander aspirations so that you can formulate positive thoughts and beliefs that actually feel real to you, things you believe are possible. You need to think good thoughts that actually feel good to you because it is the feeling that plays the biggest role. So, reach for thoughts that make you feel better, that seem doable to you and as your level of faith and positive vibes grow, you will be able to work up to grander thoughts that have authentic belief and feeling behind them.
