3 LOA Truths I Resisted
Although I like to think of myself as a quick study, there have been some Law of Attraction-related truths that I was slow on the take with. In hopes of shortening your learning curve, I offering three here and also inviting you to post YOUR favorite LOA lessons for the benefit of others:
1. It’s easy to mistake the vibe.
Even when I was making a full time living as an LOA Coach I occasionally managed to fool myself about what my vibration really was.
Example from years ago: One day a client slot opened up, so I vibed “new client.” Said the words I always said, felt the feeling I always felt. That’s how I filled every opening. And they always manifested within 24-48 hours.
Two days later there was still no new client. I was like, “What?!” They’re always here by now!
But I knew enough not to get hung up on “they’re not here” since I’d just reinforce that reality, and I went about my business not giving it any more attention.
Five days later I finished the second of two big projects I’d been working on for a while. As the last email was sent off, I took a deep breath of relief, put my hands behind my head, leaned back in my chair, and spontaneously said, “NOW I’m ready for my new client.”
And in that moment I felt the TRUTH of my “new client” vibe. It wasn’t until then I realized although I said the words the week prior, I didn’t really FEEL the new client feeling. What I felt was more like “got an open slot, should probably fill it, I’m super busy, but gotta fill the slot.” It was a mixture of “should” and “brakes.” Know what I mean? I was oblivious to it. And I do this stuff for a LIVING.
Not until I felt the pure clean easy desire for it that day did I realize I’d been fooling myself the week prior. And with that true new client vibe, within two days I had three wonderful folks show up, one of which was my first celebrity! (woo hoo!)
I remember Jeanna saying she was in the hot seat telling Abraham that she was vibing “milk” for her step-daughter but getting “pop.” (Step daughter was intaking much more sugar than Jeanna thought healthy.) Abe said Jeanna was confused about her real vibe – that was she stuck on pop, nowhere near milk. Made me feel better that I have good company in this misidentifying-the-vibe thing.
2. Acceptance is the first step to change.
This one took a while to sink in, too, even though I was well versed on “Resist = Persist” and the importance of releasing resistance in order to allow what we want. I knew it intellectually, but what it looked like and how to manage it was a long learning curve.
Needing something to change is in and of itself resistance.
There was plenty of practice for me when it came to dropping ten pounds. I thought I could just manifest a couple pounds right off, but when that didn’t happen immediately, I eventually understood it was my opposition to them – my lack of acceptance and love of them – that kept them firmly in place.
I’ve also noticed this when I need foster kitties to be healthy, or my foster dog to get adopted, or my boyfriend to be amenable. All that need for change has to go before any of it can happen. When I make peace with sick kitties, bad dogs, and irritable boyfriends, guess what? They get better, get adopted, and get friendly.
Pretty cool how that works – although it took me a while to remember this in (what I considered) high stakes situations.
3. We’re doing this ALL the time.
Every moment creates the next. All thoughts count, not just the ones we pick on purpose when we sit down to do our formal manifesting work.
In virtually every moment we’re anticipating the future; visioning what we see happening. And usually we’re very realistic and practical about it. (If not downright negative.)
That habit of anticipating what’s coming next doesn’t leverage our creative power – unless we tend to envision dream come true outcomes. Which, some people do. I don’t happen to be one of them.
And I’m not saying we should always reach for the highest thought possible – but at least recognize those mundane thoughts (let alone the negative ones) take up valuable real estate.
So when I anticipate a busy day, or imagine someone reacting badly to what I’m about to say, or wonder whether the restaurant will be closed … hello! Use your power, girlfriend! (That’s me talking to myself.)
Let’s hear it from you folks. What were the eye-opening realizations that led you to harness your creative powers?
