How Does Law of Attraction Work All The Time – Except for me?
Don’t you just hate it when you’ve read all the Law of Attraction books, created the vision boards, made the affirmations and posted them over every available surface in the house?
And you’re manifesting’s still stuck. Or maybe you’ve progressed a little, but your results are just not really matching your efforts.
And everybody trots out all that well intended new age advice like ‘you have all the answers within you” or “just think positive” or “you have to change your mindset”, or my personal favourite “aren’t you above all that internal jibber jabber by now.” Frankly, if you’re anything like me it can make you feel even more frustrated and hopeless.
I get it. I’ve been there too.
Law of Attraction IS Working For You – ALWAYS
Fortunately, you can bring your dreams to life. And when I say you’re just a thought away from your perfect life, I mean it. Literally, it’s hiding in plain sight. You CAN have what you want;
- work that leaves us satisfied and inspired instead of drained and tired at the end of each day
- the wealth and money to do what we want when we want to do it
- relationships that are loving, supportive, tender and exciting
- a mind and body that’s thriving and wakes up each morning excited to be alive
Isn’t that what we all want? I have great news for you. The only thing you have to do is start asking questions from a different perspective.
A Different Flavour of Asking
Am I crazy? Haven’t you spent hours, days, months, even years asking the same old questions?
How do I do this? How do I get out of that situation? How do I make more money? How do I get my relationship back on track? How do I even GET a relationship? How do I feel better about my body? How do I stop my body letting me down?
I hear you. I’m not crazy.
Here’s the thing …
When you’re in the depths of disappointment and despair, are you honestly asking those questions expecting a useful answer? Or are you asking questions in a way that’s more like making statements about how bad it is, how life just isn’t working the way it’s supposed to, how if everybody else “got it” and acted how you think they should, the world would be a much better place – for you.
Understanding YOUR Framework
I coached a client a little while ago and she wrote about her experience of transformation. It was all very lovely but one line really stood out and I knew if she remembered it she’d always be ok. That one line was “You soon realise you have the answers in your own words.” If you’re so inclined you can read the full context on What People Say, but it’s this one line that holds her crucial insight.
You see, from her head to her toes, Helen had come to recognise that the she was creating her own world, and thus limiting or expanding her opportunities to change it, through the conscious and unconscious thoughts and beliefs that she had accumulated over the years. She was actually living through a framework constructed from the beliefs of her early (and not so early) influencers, and the interpretations she’d formulated from THEIR, as well as her own experiences. But it was a framework of THOUGHT, not reality, no matter how real it looked.
Once she became aware of that fact, she truly recognised she no longer had to be a victim of either her current circumstances or her past. She was free to realise (i.e. to make REAL) different stories that she actually wanted to live.
More and more, Helen came to our sessions and told me a stories of how during the previous week she had gotten into some kind of struggle, and then remembered. She would realise that while the struggle might look real from within her old framework, separating the actual FACTS of the situation, from the past interpretations that her mind was coming up with at a million miles an hour (which were never good or particularly helpful), allowed her to see different options that would face her in the direction she wanted to go.
So What’s Stopping You?
So you see, the key to having what you want is to not limit your current possibilities and potential based on what you are seeing and believing in this current moment. Because most of what you and I are seeing and believing in this current moment is INTERPRETATION from the past.
This doesn’t mean you or I are doing something wrong, or that we ever have. We’re all doing the very best we can, operating from what we believe to be true at the time. The only issue is there’s way more truth available to us than we’re usually in the habit of seeing, especially in the red hot moment.
By the way, herein lies the basis of my oh so enjoyable work as a coach; being open and flexible enough to join somebody in their own version of the world, and helping them mine for what’s real and what’s made up, so they can recognise more possibilities available to them. In essence, that’s the only thing you really need, to move forward to whatever it is you’re wanting.
