Rhonda and Katie
If you’re familiar with Byron Katie’s Work, you may have wondered how (or whether) the Inquiry process works with the Law of Attraction.
I myself use Katie’s process personally and with clients as a tool for releasing thoughts that keep us stuck in a vibrational pattern that doesn’t serve. (If you’re not familiar with her questions, it’s basically to question your painful thought with 1) is it true? 2) can you know that it’s true? 3) how do you feel when you think that thought? and 4) who would you be if you couldn’t think that thought?)
Katie’s recent post about the Secret is more focused on the movie than the Law of Attraction itself, it seems. But it inspired me to offer my two cents’ worth on how the Work and LOA fit together.
Along with Sedona Method, EFT, ho’oponopono and various other release techniques, I believe The Work has the potential to help us free ourselves from thoughts that generate lower vibrations within us. As we use whatever technique best suits us to release these negative thoughts, we can more easily embrace thoughts (i.e. a new vibration) more in alignment with the good things we’ve been wanting.
I’m wondering if Katie doesn’t do a lot of deliberate creation, because she’s more focused on accepting reality than creating it. As Abraham would say, there is great power in making peace with what is, but that seems to me just the first step. So much more is possible for us when we embrace our creative powers!!
Yes, the habit of not fighting against reality is surely a peaceful one. And THEN … I’m going to usher in a reality that really floats my boat. I mean, I am. I don’t know what anyone else wants to do – but that’s where I’m headed next. And that doesn’t mean I don’t accept reality. It just means I have fun molding it, all the while perfectly accepting (okay, not perfectly – but that’s where Katie’s help comes in) what is present now.
I think Rhonda and Katie make a pretty good combination.
And I’m open (as Katie might say) to other perspectives. Your thoughts?
