Law of attraction: WARNING. Ignore this at your peril!
When my father had something important to say he would wag the index finger of his right hand while he talked. It wasn’t that he was cross or shouting at someone, it was just his enthusiasm and knowing ‘the rightness’ of what he was saying.
There’s a lot of my father in me and I am now ‘wagging’ the index finger of my right hand at you, because I have something important to say about the things you want that haven’t manifested.
This is a warning. Ignore it at your peril!
And, as always, I have a story to tell you. So get comfortable – I’ll wait while you get a cup of tea, if you like.
Once upon a time there was a woman who wanted a new job. Let’s call her Felicity. Felicity worked in a grim part of her city. The commute to and from work always made her feel uncomfortable and sometimes vulnerable.
She enjoyed her work well enough, but didn’t like her boss or her colleagues. For her, it was a lonely job. To sum it up Felicity was not a happy bunny. She felt threatened and isolated.
However, all is not lost, for Felicity knows about the law of attraction, has read some books, done a couple of webinars and belongs to an on-line community where she chats to others and gets support.
Felicity begins to go through the process to create a new job.
Over a period of 30 days, as suggested by her mentor, she wrote and spoke her positive affirmations, conjured up the feelings of a new job in a safer part of town and she did her visualisations daily.
Then one day – Hallelujah! She saw an advert for the perfect job. It ticked all her boxes. With the mind-set of positive thought and knowing that she is the creator of her reality, she congratulated herself – for she created the position.
The bottom line is, she didn’t get her job. She was hugely disappointed and retreated into her lair to lick her wounds.
But Felicity knows that she creates her reality and so the time came when she picked herself up, brushed herself off and started all over again.
Felicity started again: dreaming, affirming, visualising, this time with more focus and enthusiasm.
Once again, she created a fabulous job offer, much better than the first. She went through the interview process and held the resonance that she’d built over the previous 30 days. Suffice it to say, she didn’t get this job either!
I had been chatting with Felicity through social media and helping her to stay focused. But now she was so disappointed and completely discouraged. It’s difficult to get back on your bike when your wound is raw. But when it heals a little, it’s time for a review.
Now, I’m wagging my finger! Ignore this advice at your peril:
There is no such thing as failure!
Life is a process of ‘trial and error’. We are always defining and refining our lives. Not achieving what we want to achieve is showing us that something else has to be done, some belief has to be released first, before we can receive our creation.
It’s my opinion that the only ‘failure’ is ignoring the discoveries from the ‘failure’.
