"Things Should Be Different"
- Success shouldn’t be this hard to come by;
- spouses shouldn’t cheat;
- big companies shouldn’t be allowed to spoil the planet;
- or my own recent favorite: there’s no way I should be wearing size 12 jeans.
Even in deliberate creator circles, it’s not unusual to hear sentiments like these about how things should be different.
The vibrational signal we send with those thoughts instructs Universe to ensure things are not how we want them to be. Because we’re instructing things should be different than they are. As in, not how we want it.
Law of attraction dictates that Universe has to match the vibrational quality of our thoughts. As long as we feel resistance to how things are, it has to give us more of the same. I know you all know this: Universe isn’t listening for your “yeses” and “nos” – it’s simply answering what you’ve got your attention on.
So if you’re dialed on it, you’re getting it. Even if the reason you’re dialed on it is because you’re noticing this is not how things are supposed to be.
Which means a powerful creator would send a new signal. A signal that says things are great and getting better.
… Or at least not that bad. Right?
And that means we would do well to start making peace with how things are.
Not just because that’s the only way things can ever change (I know how paradoxical that sounds, but it’s true), but also because it’s more enjoyable to get through the day with acceptance and appreciation rather than resistance and judgment.
So how to do that when the “things should be different” thought is so stubborn?
LOA 101: find a thought that feels better.
Here’s my contribution:
Who in their right mind could possibly think these beautiful butts should be any different than they are?! They’re works of art!
And almost every one of them is bigger than size 12.
Let the appreciation begin! 🙂
