The Law of Attraction basically states that what you think about, you bring about.
Energy flows where attention goes. This is a concept that came into my life when I was in massage school. I had never heard it before, but the more I learned, the more intrigued I became. I learned it from a DVD that someone gave me of “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. The concept is hundreds of years old, but she and her team broke it down and simplified it in such a way as to make it understandable to everyone, not just the intellectual philosophers who spend a lifetime studying such things.
The Law of Attraction was a life-changing experience for me.
It freed me from the thoughts that I grew up with that life is a terrible struggle and that success and happiness were meant for everyone except me. It gave me a new perspective on scriptures (I am a religious person), and on how God desires to bless us, if we but ask. I played with the concepts that were discussed. I bought the book and the CDs, and listened to them endlessly in my car as I drove around, drilling them into my head.
It took a while to override 50 years of thinking that I am nobody and not worthy, but when I began to have real faith and understanding, things happened. I became stronger, people were attracted to my business, things that I desired appeared as if by magic. But when I lose site of that, when I get in the dumps and start beating myself up because clients aren’t knocking down my doors, suddenly it gets worse. People cancel appointments. Nobody calls.
The most important thing is to be thankful for what we have. Make the time daily to be thankful for your blessings, and see how quickly things improve.
I am thankful that the people who need my help have been able to find me. I’m thankful for their loyalty and kindness. (One client recently kissed my hands and said, “bless your hands!”) I’m thankful for people who genuinely care about me and lift their hands to help me when I need it and sing my praises to their friends. I’m thankful for the people who seem to magically find me on Google. I’m thankful for the health and strength that have permitted me to continue doing this remarkable work for people.
