Busting up the Law of Attraction…..so we can really experience our Divine good.
Honestly, I’ve been kinda pissed off at the “Law of Attraction” for quite some time. Something about the current teachings feels “off” to me.
Yet, for years I read tons of books about it, took classes and workshops, and had a bazillion conversations about it with like-minded spiritual and entrepreneur friends.
I’d hear people say they were great manifestors and I’d get jealous, envious, and angry. I wondered…what I was doing wrong?
And the more I tried to practice and master the Law of Attraction, the deeper I would fall into despair and unworthiness.
So what changed? How did I finally come to create the life of ease, health, and grace that seemed to elude me for so long?
And is it possible for you, or anyone, to truly create the life they desire?
Yes, and Yes!
The shift came with a little piece of paper.
In my meditation room, next to my altar and meditation chair I have a quote written on a small piece of paper. I scribbled it down from an audio book I was listening to…
And 8 years later it is still guiding my actions, my heart, and my life.
It says, “Seek God and the blessings will seek you”.
Now for those of you that want to stop reading because your thinking….”Oh no, she’s going to get all up in religion on me, and I’m just not into all that religion stuff”…..
Bear with me…cause, I do not consider myself to be all that religious… And that’s not at all what this post is about!
I’ve meditated on the piece of paper and quote for quite some time. It seemed to be filled with ease and grace, and that was what I really wanted. I was so tired after all those years of trying and struggling and pushing, pushing, pushing. It seemed like I was still in the same place after all my efforts.
I wanted exactly what it said…..I wanted blessings, (pretty ironic for a person with my name, right?) I wanted ease and grace and blessings to find me…
So I meditated on this every day.
I directed my attention and focus into trying to understand what it meant to seek God. I knew it wasn’t about going to church. I knew it wasn’t about the God of religion. I kept getting drawn into the idea of seeking God and I just kept asking in my meditations and prayers to understand how I was supposed to seek God.
And the answer came…find it within myself.
Stop trying to manifest from the external. Stop efforting with my mind.
This would lead me no closer to the Divine. Seek instead to see, know , and feel the One heart and One mind of creation, of pure consciousness.
As a result of going deeper within to see all of creation inside myself…
I would naturally raise my consciousness and vibration to my true self, my higher self…which would then be aligned with all of the Uni-verse, (meaning One song).
As a result, I would naturally have a frequency that would match the desires that God had placed in my heart and soul.
The only effort needed was to continue to get still and be willing to see the Divine within myself, (rather than listening to what the trash talking inner critic had to say. Yes, I used to do that, too)
I didn’t need anyone else to see it in me. I didn’t need anyone else to believe in me. Also, I didn’t need to manipulate life, people, or situations to “attract” more good into my life.
Bam! I can stop over-efforting with all these “law of attraction” principles. They didn’t work because no matter how many times I did them…I hadn’t gotten the inside right. (And, BTW, there are actually 7 Universal Laws at work, not just the law of attraction.)
All the Law of Attraction seemed to have done for me was to leave me feeling separate from myself and all the good and love in the world.
It seemed to keep me focused on how I wasn’t successful at achieving what I wanted and moved me deeper into feeling unworthy.
But with that little piece of paper…each morning I’d ask myself….how do I seek God, and I knew it wasn’t about a man in a robe with a big gold “G” around his neck.
Rather, all I had to do was seek to find the essence of God within myself! That essence is Love–pure unconditional self-love.
And with each day a little more light came in to replace all the fear and negative self-talk until I reached the tipping point and my frequency was more love, confidence, and self worth than fear and pain.
Seeking the essence of God within myself changed my frequency and then Universal Laws took over…I was now a match to the blessings that were looking for me.
Furthermore, a key principle that is so important to grasp is that we don’t have to go looking for love! We don’t have to make an effort to attract love.
Love isn’t something we need to seek or get from someone else. It’s already inside us. It isn’t something we need to be given from another. We come from love. We ARE love. The only thing that keeps us separate from it is our beliefs.
That seems to be the biggest challenge of the women I work with. So many women have chosed to believe a negative “I’m unworthy” story about themselves–one that got formulated around childhood events.
But the story? It just isn’t true! Seeking God means letting go of that story and belief, once and for all! It means un-plugging from the three Universal fears.
When we align with something we invite more of it in.
This is how we receive blessings…with self-love, and learning to trust that we are good, we are love. This is the essence of God…..goodness and love. You are not your pain or story. Rather, seek to find the God within…..the goodness and love that are your essence within.
I’m with you and holding that sacred space for you to step into.
This is the work we do in my Awaken, Align, and Embody Programs
We illuminate the true potential that lies dormant in you and I teach you tools that transform the blocks and limitations getting in the way of what you really desire…A happy, healthy, prosperous life.
