Law of Attraction. What to do when the going gets tough.
By now you know how the law of attraction works. You know about dreaming your dream; about have a really clear vision and always keeping your eye on the future. All that is well and good – but what happens when the going gets tough and you seem to walking through mud: and although you’ve been doing all you should have been doing, not only isn’t there the slightest hint of your dream showing up, but life seems to be getting worse!
And here I’m telling you that this law of attraction stuff really works – so what’s going on?
When the going gets tough
What you’re doing works. It really does.
But when the going gets tough you need to use a different set of rules.
“Well!” I hear you say! “Now you tell me”!
You’re just beginning to get the hang of watching your thoughts etc and now I tell you there’s 2 sets of rules!
So – what are the ‘rules’ and how do you know when to use which set?
Good questions. It’s a lot easier than you think and the answer lies in how you feel. Your emotions are you guide. How you feel is everything!
The key to knowing which set of rules to use lies in your feelings.
Your Emotions create your life. Emotions are the language of your soul (your soul talks to you through your emotions – the good ones that is) and your emotions are the ‘indicator’.
Your feelings indicate how well you’re doing on your journey to where you want to go.
You know how it works. You dream your dream, visualise, say your affirmations and write in your journal (What? You’re not using a Journal? Oh goodness me! You’re not using one of the most powerful tools of creation!! More about this next week.)
So, if you’re feeling really good; you’re happy and feeling confident – and just generally you’re great and life is good, then carry on doing what you’ve been doing.
But your emotions ebb and flow. I don’t know about you, but I can go up and down like a yo-yo in a split second. So if you don’t like how you feel, you wont like what’s manifesting in your life. (Is it any wonder I work with the Bach Flower Remedies as well?)
When you’re feeling happy and confident – use Rule #1.
When you fearful, in doubt or other negative feelings – use Rule #2.
When you’re feeling good, you’re expanding your mind, your dreams, your visualisations – then do all the things you know to do – they work; they really do! (I’m sure you’ve got that covered (expect perhaps for Journalling)?
But when you hit a tough patch, as you will, you need a different set of rules to get you out of the mire. You’re disappointed and discouraged and probably lost any confidence you had in the Law of Attraction and yourself.
As your thoughts are now pretty grim and your emotions heavy – and you can’t seem to shake them off – now is the time to ‘contract’ your mind.
Now you switch to a really simple and ‘general’ set of affirmations, saying things similar to …
“All is well. I don’t have to think about this right now.
There’s plenty of time for me to figure it out.
Everything’s working out for me. It always does.
I can do it. I know I can do it.
All really is well. Everything is working out for me – it always does”.
So, in the moment of Now – you bring your thoughts ‘closer to you’ as it were, you’re beginning to say things that move you out of fear and anxiety into, for the want of a better phrase, still water.
You’ll find that these few simple and general statements will break the pattern of all the negative chatter that’s galloping through you mind. And they’ll help you feel better.
As you begin ‘talking to yourself’ you’ll begin to feel a lot better – and then you go back to Set of Rules #1.
You change how you’re working with your mind depending on how you feel – because, although thoughts are important – the law of attraction is always responding to your emotions.
Over to you.
