Law of Attraction Isn't for Fixing
Some people pick up deliberate creation in order to fix something gone “wrong” in their life.
But law of attraction isn’t for fixing.
Law of attraction can only reflect who you are and what you’re vibrating.
So if your signal says something is “wrong,” like your body, or bank account, or marriage – it can only return more of that.
I’ve done this myself, so I know how easy it is to fall for.
Someone shared recently that she had tried everything under the sun to cure herself of cancer, including the work of manifesting. To no avail.
The thing is, when we pick up deliberate creation in order to change something we have resistance to, it won’t – it can’t – turn out how we want. Because when we strongly don’t want something, Universe can onlydeliver the very thing we’re focused on.
The first “work” of manifesting is to drop any resistance to what is. Which means making some peace.
When we’re complaining about or scared of something that hasn’t changed, that’s not peace – that’s resistance.
So, you might ask, what’s the good of manifesting if we can’t use it to change what we don’t like?!
The point is to understand that we create our lives according to what we think and feel. We can consciously direct our journey when we leverage that understanding and discipline our attention.
But when we use deliberate creation to fix something gone wrong, that belief that something is wrong and needs fixing is the very obstacle to what we want.
When I think cancer is big bad and ugly and I desperately do everything I can think of to get rid of it … can you feel that vibe? Pretend you’re Universe on the other side of that signal. What could it send besides more big bad ugly cancer?
When we train our focus on what we wan’t (rather than what we don’t want), that likely includes making peace with the diagnosis, or the breakup, or the bankruptcy – since those things are kind of big to try to ignore.
Personally, my directed thoughts when something “wrong” is threatening to grab my attention might go something like:
“This is what is right now, and I’m okay with that. I know it’s not permanent. Nothing IS! I know how this works. I get what I focus on. What can I pay attention to now that is going right?”
- My friends love me and would do anything they could to help. That’s kind of cool.
- The sun is shining through the clouds right now in a way that is really beautiful.
- Good Wife is not a re-run! Yay!
- This soup is just the right temperature. I love when I get it right.
And then maybe I eventually find some better feeling thoughts on the topic at hand that’s feeling so pressureful. But it doesn’t have to be right now. There’s plenty of other things to feel better about here and now. My dogs are healthy; I’ve got a quiet spot to myself right here; this is a great view of that big tree; etc. etc.
Dropping resistance and training our attention in a way that raises our vibration and improves our alignment is how we allow in magic and miracles.
Not because we’re fixing something gone wrong, but because we exert our power as creators by directing our attention in a way that allows our preferences to unfold.
The nutshell: when you’re trying to fix something gone wrong, that’s attending to what you don’t want. That vibration prevents solutions from appearing.
