See saw on the Law of Attraction

They say, “its all about balance”!   

But is it, I ask?  Do we really want to be in balance all the time? See saw

When I was young, I would sometimes stand astride the centre of the see-saw.  I would transfer my weight from one side to another, until I had found the sweet point, where the see-saw was in perfect balance. Success!  Or was it? (Just in case you’re wondering – this is not me on the see saw!)  

Having achieved this balance it was boring to stay there. There was no movement; nothing to do. Life was static.   

We want action!

Human beings love having something to do. I don’t believe we want balance at all.  We want movement, flow and change all the time.  It’s my opinion that – and you know I always qualify what I’m saying with that statement before I make what could appear to be an unusual or strange statement –  we want movement – all the time.  

When I played on the see-saw, changing my weight from one side to the other – dipping it to the left, raising it to the right; controlling the rise and fall, by choice – I was dancing with the see-saw.  Keeping it in motion was fun.   

Having fun is fun

This is again – in my opinion – what life is all about! We are emotional beings and we want to have fun.  

We want to laugh. We love to play.  We want to dance with life.  We love to create success – success equals happiness in anyone’s book I think. We are emotional beings that like movement and change. Even those who don’t like change, like being still even less.  

Just as I did with the see-saw, we like to keep things in motion. In fact, we could be summed up easily by one word, E-motion – Energy in motion.   

To keep moving, we need the dips of life: we need the things we don’t like in order to show us what we do like. Its only when we experience something we don’t like are we able to make a choice and raise up the other side of the see-saw. The contrast and variety in life are our reason to keep moving and grow.  

Most of us think that our feelings, our emotional balance, comes from that’s happening around us and we have no control over it. Most of us think that life has to be a certain way before we can be happy: that people have to act a particular way so that we can be happy.  That’s ‘conditional’ love.  

For most people, their emotional, vibrational balance is affected by what’s going on around them.  However we don’t have to be affected by others -but so often we allow ourselves to be so. 

Ideally, we should be adaptable enough to adjust to life, so that we stay happy too the time.  It’s like standing in a bus or on a train, you put your feet slightly apart, been your knees so that you keep your balance with every twist and turn you take. 

When we accept that we feel as we feel because of what we’re focusing on, it makes life much easier to play on the see saw. How we feel has nothing to do with the other and everything to do with us. If we don’t like what we’re experiencing, we can look away; ‘turn the other cheek’: we can change our focus and look at something that does please us.   

And if you want to, you can think about why you created the experience in the first place – after all the Law of Attraction can only deliver to you experiences on your vibration.

  • Lovely messages here,lots of points to help others think through how they are balancing all aspects of their lives.

    • Rose Todd says:

      Thank you Hilary. I appreciate it. I hope it’ll make people we don’t really want to be in a ‘static’ balance – but in a flowing balance. Rose

    Hi Rose
    I can relate to this as I am getting frustrated because I want to move house and wondering if I am trying too hard trying to make it happen x any thoughts?

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hi Lorraine. Thank you for your comments. I do appreciate it. Frustration is a most frustrating feeling isn’t it? I hate it when things don’t got as fast I as want them to go. But life is like baking: some of the things we create are like cup-cakes and cook in 15 minutes – and sometimes we create a Christmas cake – which takes hours to bake! Perhaps moving house is more of a Christmas cake than a cup cake? Warm wishes. Rose

      Hi Lorraine. I’ve just replied to this – but can see it on the page. So if you get the reply twice – consider it a double reminder!
      I understand about being frustrated. I get frustrated too when things don’t go as fast as I want them to. However, creating stuff is a bit like baking: sometimes we bake cupcakes that take on 15 minutes to cook and sometimes we bake Christmas cakes – which take hours to cook. Perhaps moving house is a Christmas cake?
      This could even be the subject of next Tuesdays blog – and you’ve just had a preview of the bottom line!
      Warm wishes Rose.

    Love the analogy of the see-saw and it certainly resonates me.

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Alpa. Glad you liked the analogy – it works well describing life and our emotions, doesn’t it? Glad it hit the spot. (Hopefully) there’ll be another blog next Tuesday. Warm Wishes. Rose

  • Judy says:

    I can really relate to this blog! I feel like I’m always trying to get in balance, but actually it’s one thing I don’t have to worry about! I can now appreciate that I like the ups and downs in my life and enjoy the few moments of balance too!

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hi Judy. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I’m really glad the blog helped. Moments of balance are peaceful. And although I don’t like the downward fall – I really do like the ride up – its inspirational! Warm wishes. Rose
