Q&A: The Role of Apologies in LOA?
Last week I asked Good Vibe U folks their take on the role of apologizing in deliberate creation.
The conversation arose when my coach quoted Abraham in saying that “Source doesn’t apologize.” (She was late for a session and curbed a natural – and anticipated – apology for it.)
Which made me wonder, if Source doesn’t apologize, then why do I find myself uttering the words “I’m sorry” so often and so easily? Is that something I should be more conscious of? Is there a better vibe to reach for in those situations?
And then I thought you all might help with the insights on this topic.
Is there a better way to accomplish what we’re intending when we apologize?
One person said it’s just our “stock answer” that we give out of habitual social conditioning. Another suggested that if it feels better to say it, then why wouldn’t we?
Nancy had a fascinating story to share about her experience with it, and Carol quoted wisdom from Byron Katie that spoke to the reasons to skip the feeling of “sorry”:
- “If I don’t have pain in me, I can see you as you really are.”
- “If it’s all about me than I’m not really hearing you.”
- “When you’re clear their pain is not your pain, you’re available to be there for them. You’re not afraid of their pain, because it’s not yours. It’s not about you. That’s compassion.”
What’s your take on this?
Do you notice a dip or a rise in your vibe when you apologize? Does it depend on the circumstance? And is there a role for apologizing in powerful deliberate creation?
And how would you handle it when someone didn’t apologize for something that you thought might be warranted? That one could potentially trip me up, I suspect. (Like, Russ’ apology goes a long way toward helping me let something negative go.)
As usual, I’m looking forward to your take on the vibration of apologizing and its role in Law of Attraction!
