When it comes to utilizing law of attraction most effectively, there are several key elements that we must be in harmony with or we will thwart or severely delay getting the things we want and making the progress we desire. This mode of thinking is a rapid departure from our normal mode of thought and it can take quite awhile to move from understanding these concepts and accepting their truth to actually applying them in our life without feeling sick to our stomachs wondering if we are making the right decision. When it comes to getting the things you want in life, we need to be bold and do things that go against conventional thinking.
Chances are, if you are seriously working with law of attraction, you are currently experiencing undesirable circumstances in your life; maybe you dislike your job or your relationship. You probably want more money so you can increase your peace of mind and live life to the fullest. You want a better life and there is nothing wrong with that.
One of the biggest barriers to achieving all these noble goals is our inability to release on current circumstances, opportunities and situations that really do not serve us anymore, or that are keeping us stuck being who we no longer want to be and doing what we no longer want to do. Intellectually we know that if we set strong intentions and develop strong faith we will get what we want; but experientially we are still dealing with negative programming and we fully do not feel this, even if we know it. This makes it hard to release on these things; we feel safe, even if we are unsatisfied, and we are not fully convinced things will work out.
Once I took on a position doing some freelance work that involved rating websites to help improve search engine results. The pay was not great and the work was tedious. But, it came at a time when I really needed it and I was super grateful. They offer one-year contracts;I came on near the end of the current contract and a couple of months later, it was time for the new one to come out. I was offered one--provided I met their basic requirements, I was guaranteed work for a year. Around this same time, however, I attracted numerous freelance writing opportunities that offered a dramatic increase in my income. To devote 20 hours a week to the rating position would seem ludicrous given the potential hourly rate I would get with this new work. I could do both but it seemed kind of silly. I could make more money that I had in a long time working far, far, far less than I currently was. Given that I was considering keeping the position even though it paid less and would require more of my time, it was clear that I was only thinking about keeping it out of fear that money would dry up with the other things.
Now, being someone who still has blocks and issues like anyone else, it was a bit uncomfortable to send that email saying I was passing on the new contract – I still have some deep conditioning regarding the desirability for security when it comes to our sources of income. But, I knew that if I gave into the temptation to keep that position ‘’just in case’’, I would be sending out the wrong signal to the Universe that I cannot get what I actually want, that I am just settling for a job that pays the bills, that I am only capable of making a certain amount of money.
If you are holding onto to jobs, people, and anything else simply because it makes you feel more secure, because you do not want to release on them ‘’just in case’’ the other stuff does not work out, you will delay getting what you actually want. Releasing precedes acquiring.
You need to make room for the things you want in your life and that often means getting rid of something else blocking it. It takes faith, something that can be hard to maintain, barring the ability to see the future and know for sure what will happen.
I have gotten a lot better at releasing and things have been rushing into my life in ways that I could not have anticipated. The same will happen for you if you can learn to release on what no longer serves and what is blocking your true desires. I am not going to lie, it will probably be uncomfortable to do this and you will feel scared but the things we want most usually lie on the other side of uncomfortable choices.
