When it rains, it pours
The law of attraction is always working, either to your benefit or detriment. The proverb, ‘when it rains, it pours’ signifies that many difficult things always happen at the same time.
Yet the same can also be said for the positive areas of your life; when something is going really well in one area of your life, it tends to have an upward, magnifying effect on all other areas.
Recently, a dear Australian friend of mine was rather frustrated because she was fed up of paying $7 toll just to go home, and thought she would avoid the tunnel.
Here’s what she said: “Thought I’d try avoiding the tunnel home, fed up with paying $7 toll just to go home. So headed for Harbour bridge instead..got caught up in horrendous road work delays, took an extra HOUR!!! Was 20 mins late to pick up my daughter from daycare…and they charged me $50 for late pick up!!! “
First of all, it’s vital to point out that this mayhem wasn’t ’caused’ by my friend, which is what most people say when they first learn about the law of attraction. “You caused it” is a silly thing to say because we don’t cause all events.
What is important to understand is that this universe is managed by vibration or ‘frequency’. That is, we are aligning with different potential outcomes in each moment.
In each moment you are at the centre of your own circle, where you have 360 degrees of perception, or choice.
Which choice we take is determined by our thoughts and feelings in each moment, which is determined by how aligned with are with our Non-Physical Source or inner guidance. If we are rolling around in ‘mucky vibrational energy’, then we won’t be able to receive the higher promptings of our Source.
Many times our thoughts are like an opaque screen that filters out the subtle messages that come from our higher mind, which sees and knows everything! Luckily, we can always know when we are off track by noticing ‘resistance’ in the form of negative thoughts and emotions, and by also paying attention to the body’s “yes” and “no” responses, we can guide ourselves through murky waters.
Had my friend taken a moment to ‘tune in’ and ask ‘does it feel right to take the bridge home?’ she probably would have got a clear ‘no’ response from her body. Remember, the human body is a finely tuned receiver and transmitter of energies.
In experiments where subjects were shown different images, the body was observed to react before the image was shown. The body ‘knew’ already and ‘reacted’ to the image ahead of the subject actually seeing the photo. Spooky, huh?
Take a moment to think of something or someone you don’t like and notice how your body reacts! It might feel ‘closed’ or ‘heavy’, for example, and/or you might suddenly feel drained. Notice if you feel these sensations in certain areas, like your stomach (solar plexus) or heart.
The law of attraction is always matching your thoughts and feelings, that’s its only job.
Since my friend’s dominant vibrations were focused on ‘lack’ (not feeling she was abundant enough to pay the $7) and ‘frustration’ (at having to pay), the law of attraction matched these energies, which caused her to make a decision that was not in her best interests.
In the end, it cost her more time, energy and money than it would have done otherwise.
However, that’s not to say she should never take the bridge home… on another day, it could work really well for her, with no roadworks, traffic or fines to pay!
When we align with our intuitive or higher wisdom on every subject, we will tend to make decisions that are supportive. We will know ‘when’ to do something, and when not to.
It’s usually not a good idea to make a decision based on frustration.
But even if we make a wrong decision, we can still learn from it – and get even more clarity about what we want. However, if we keep focusing back on frustration and unwanted energies, we will keep aligning with experiences that match those energies.
The perfect solutions are waiting for us! Money, health, happiness… and more!
We simply need awareness of the law of attraction/vibration, and we will line up with them in due course.
