The Rolling Stones may have sung, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” but is that really true?
Lately, I’ve been paying a lot of attention to an amazing Facebook group called “Law of Attraction Changed My Life.” It’s a wonderful place full of amazing, supporting strangers who only seem to want to wish you well. How many times do you come across a page on social media where the great majority is kind? Almost never. And I believe it has a lot to do with them being fulfilled and happy people.
The Law of Attraction (LOA), as you may know, is the theory of the Universe listening to your every wish and delivering it to you. Yes, just like that! In the New Testament, Jesus is said to have said, “Ask and you shall be given.” The book and the movie “The Secret” may have brought the LOA to light in this time and age, but the law has existed forever. Even before Jesus’s time.
“But,” I can hear you grunt, “I’m asking and asking and asking, and nothing comes!” Well, I guess you shouldn’t take the Bible so literally. After all, it’s a book that was written decades after the main character supposedly lived, and while he spoke in Aramaic, the first texts were written in Greek, then translated to Latin, then to English, and so on. The message simply got lost.
It’s not about asking. It’s about believing. Yes, you CAN have everything yo want, but only of you don’t WANT it. If you focus on your lack of something, the Universe will give you more of that “lack.” And that’s really the clue here, what you focus on is what you get. That’s why many spiritual teachers and many faiths talk about gratitude. Can you feel the difference in energy between these two sentences: “My bank account is filled with money” and “I’m so grateful for all the money that flows to me so easily.”
Lift your energy, feel happiness flow through your entire being, visualize yourself already being in possession of that which you yearn for, and be grateful.
Start and end every single day with gratitude.
