Whatever you Believe you will Receive- But there's not necessarily a time scale!
We are currently living in a time during which the human race has acquired general knowledge of the law of attraction; secrets previously in the domain of the world's richest people and those who naturally stumbled into that way of thinking- leaving the majority of us to believe in 'The System.'
'The Secret,' as it has become known is simply an explanation of another natural law, the law of attraction, which is as fundamental as the law of gravity. From a human perspective the law of attraction is much harder to understand than the law of gravity. If you are standing on a ladder and let go of your paintbrush it will fall; apples drop from the tree; and we understand that gravity does not work in outer space- after all we have seen this on our TV's. A key point for consideration is that we walk down the road because of gravity and it doesn't matter whether we understand it or not, gravity happens.
The law of attraction is exactly the same. Whether we understand it or not the law of attraction is operating at all times. It is not selective, but programmed to tune into our thoughts and do their bidding. Once we realise this we do not need the proverbial genie to grant our wishes because we have the power to change our lives and our destiny. If on the other hand we choose to focus on our woes we will lead pretty miserable lives.
On paper this sounds great! We want it, we think about it long and hard and eventually it happens- right? Not exactly because nothing happens without action. If you sit in a room without any external contact you cannot survive, but if someone brings you food, drink etc you could lead an exceptionally quiet existence. Most of our dreams exceed the very basic levels of desire as we tend to want relationships, nice homes, good jobs, holidays and so forth. Some of these are within our means and others require a huge stretch of the imagination and leap of faith to acquire. We need to learn how to work with the law of attraction and maintain our faith in it. The more attention we give to something the more the universe will deliver. If you think of yourself as poor you are not very likely to become rich. If you don't have much money but place value on other aspects of life and be grateful, your circumstance may well change. This is why it's good to focus on what we enjoy.
One of the things I have learnt during my recent journey is that the universe can't be hurried. It has taken me three years before being granted the dream of my own home once again. Like many people, I found it more than challenging leaving a long term relationship and family home to start over. Life in one room was such a contrast and learning to live by myself and to work out who I am was incredibly difficult. There were many times during that period when I could have lost faith and become extremely depressed but that would have been a huge backwards step. Obviously there were many stumbling points and frustrations but that is where I had to practice changing my mood and thoughts. Extremely difficult but we have a choice within every moment and can usually find something to focus on that's a slight improvement. Music is therapy, talk can be too provided you move on from the misery! Sometimes just putting on the TV and making an effort to focus on a programme can help. As time went by I came to realise that you can get back on track quite quickly when you let go of anger, frustration and worry. Things really do have a way of sorting themselves.
My present move resulted in around a year of stress with 6 months dedicated to purchasing my new flat and there were struggles every inch of the way; new dilema's presenting themselves constantly including a last minute fuss by the vendor when I was due to collect the keys. The interesting part about all of this is that had life moved more quickly I would have remained in the renting sector, so patience and timing have proved to be blessings. I truly believe that universal timing is highly tuned to a frequency beyond our knowing. These two factors- patience and timing have been the core lessons I have learnt during the past three years. Allowing is the third and I'm still working on it!
