law of attraction
boho manifesting, canon digital rebel xt
Thea and I were talking on the phone today about how the film The Secret has transformed our way of thinking and feeling in our day to day lives. I shared it with Letha and have witnessed a transformation in her life as well.
The "secret" is the Law of Attraction: If you are thinking and feeling negative thoughts, you are going to attract negative things in your life. If you are thinking and feeling positive thoughts and emotions, you are going to attract positive things. There is a scientific explanation that I won't go into...I encourage you to see the film for that.
What I do know is that it works. Learning to monitor my thoughts has been a challenge but so worth it. I have always been a positive person in general but I never really paid close attention to the many thoughts and images that enter into my psyche throughout the day. After watching this film, I have caught so many negative ones that I am taken aback! So what I do now in that moment is stop and change that thought or image into something that makes me feel good.
Our thoughts are so much more powerful than we realize. We truly can create the life we want by believing it, feeling it and manifesting it. From what I have witnessed in my life since practicing this, I have seen the gifts both large and small.
I'll give you a small example. Today I went to a bookstore in search of books on design. I wanted so badly to score one of the comfy leather chairs scattered between the rows of bookshelves. You know which ones I am talking about. They are always occupied, no?? As I was scanning the aisles on my way to the design section, I saw that the chairs were all taken. I felt myself get frustrated and I imagined having to sit on the floor like I always do. I caught myself in mid negative thought and instead took a moment to envision me sitting in a comfy leather chair. I imagined how peaceful I would feel having all the time in the world to browse through all of my books, sinking deeply into the huge comfy seat.
When I arrived at my section and gathered the books, I turned around and right then and there, the man sitting in the comfy leather chair behind me got up to leave. Not only did I get the chair...but it was in my section!
Call it coincidence...but I call it Law of Attraction.
