In my opinion, the third step in the Law of Attraction is allowing and receiving your good with total faith and detachment. I always love to take stock of the past year - I think of all the gifts I have received, both good and bad, and I challenge myself to write a gratitude list of 365 things I am grateful for. I even write down the insights I am grateful for, things I learned from the "not so good" things that have happened.
Lately I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of PRESSURE in terms of "doing the Law of Attraction right" or "having it happen faster." I can relate, because when I first started practicing the Law of Attraction I wanted to control it also. There is something beyond the Law of Attraction that needs our attention: Reaction. With the recent wildfires in California, James Ray, one of the featured speakers of The Secret sent out a newsletter with a profound statement about responsibility that I couldn't have said better myself:
"If you dissect the word (response-ability), you find it really means "the ability to respond." How we choose our responses is what we'll continue to attract, create and become. To think that your life will be challenge free is illusion. Challenges are the way we test how much we have or have not developed our ability to respond." -James Ray
At the end of the day all we have control over is our reactions. This takes skill and practices--and it's a life long mastery. With the right tools, however, you can pave and script so much more fun in your life and also have a place for the "uh oh" and "oh crap" moments. In Abraham-Hicks' new book they talk about our emotions with an incredible image: You are either paddling upstream or downstream. Sometimes the things that are going on our lives feel really REAL and it sucks.
All we can do is find a little bit of relief to feel better in order to move up to the vibration scale of well-being. The question to ask yourself is: What can I do to feel to a little bit better? When I am really at the bottom, black and white cookies always do the trick for me. I am not advocating emotional eating... simply find what will give you relief.
I highly recommend repeating the following statement from Abraham Hicks' CD, "Art of Allowing Workshop": I am where I am right now and that is enough.
This statement will have your boat flowing downstream again to BE IN THE FLOW of your life. My other observation is that people are so afraid to say what they don't want or admit their human feelings. You are a HUMAN BEING and that "stuff" is going to come up. My brief recommendation is to tell the truth about it by writing down what you "don't want to feel" on a piece of paper and then release that paper. Use this as a template to gain clarity, then write what you DO want in your journal. There is a very specific process that I teach my clients on how to manage this energy, but it is too detailed to write in this brief newsletter.
In life, problems will not go away, the only thing we can change is our reaction to them and who are we going to BE in the face of them. How can we use this as an opportunity to grow and gain insight?
My intention is that you have all you desire in 2008. Come play with us this year!
