Effort And Willpower Are Not Needed
Where do I begin? First off, I learned about Law of Attraction the last half of last year when I was going through a very rough patch in my life. I just turned 20 and was very confused about who I was and what I wanted to do with my life. I felt an unbelievable pressure to match my high expectations for myself and other peoples high expectations of me, and at the time I came up short and it really bothered me. I felt like I should have been doing more with my life and as a result I constantly obsessed over my past mistakes and errors. As you can imagine I had a lot of anxiety and stress, so much so that it eventually manifested in physical ailments.
I have always been healthy in fact, all my life up to that point. All I ever had was a short lived cold here and there. Suddenly with all the negative thinking and the strong anxiety, fear and worry, they caused my muscles to start twitching throughout my body and my heart raced like crazy. I was told by my doctor that my heart behaved as if I was running when I was perfectly at rest. My blood pressure was high, I had strange headaches, so on and so forth. It was absolutely crazy and I was scared out of my mind. I went to the doctors and they found nothing wrong with me, citing it was only anxiety which I knew I already had.
I searched the internet night and day, looking up symptoms which, BTW I shouldn’t have done because I just freaked myself out and added to the anxiety.
I eventually found the law of attraction and then The Secret. I went to the library immediately and checked it out. I was amazed, filled with joy and comforted because it was the answer I had been searching for all along, since 12 years old.
Now I wish I could say after finding The Secret that everything just fell into place right away. but that wasn’t the case. I was the type of person who worried. Worried about everything, analyzed everything and on a smaller scale, I still do sometimes, but then I catch myself and remind myself of the truth.
The initial bliss of The Secret wore off when I took note that if I thought about negative things they would manifest and down the rabbit hole I went. So I was back to anxiety only this time it was magnified because now I knew thoughts became things.
It took me a while and some supplement research to get to a place where I didn’t get caught up in my negativity so much. Doing a bit of introspection, I realized I held a lot of negative beliefs about myself and the world and also that I had very low self esteem. I didn’t think I was good enough or that the world was good to me. I made an effort to release these poisonous beliefs and be more open, more allowing so that the good the universe had for me could flow effortlessly into my life.
Today, I am much happier than I was a couple months ago. I have a lot of goals, a lot of opulent dreams but my biggest dream is to be at peace with myself, to have a peaceful mind and outlook. I know in my heart I will get there.
Law of attraction is natural, it is a part of us. Way before I knew anything about it I was manifesting, we all were, by default. For example, a couple of months before my breakdown I was in need of a laptop for school. I didn’t have the money and didn’t know how I was going to get it.
Would you believe one rainy day I met a guy at the bus stop and just struck up a conversation with him. We got to talking and he randomly just asked me if I knew anyone who needed a laptop. He told me he had prayed to God to send him someone who needed it, that he could give to. I was amazed, just speechless. I told him I needed one, and he reached into his backpack and gave it to me, the cord, everything. The laptop was in amazing shape and it was an expensive model used by business type people, it’s original retail price was $1500, a price that at the time I couldn’t afford. Anyways, the laptop though perfect, came with a catch. It was wiped clean by the original owner who he had gotten it from and it didn’t have a hard drive.
Now here is where the second amazing part comes in. Me and the gentleman who gave me the laptop to me boarded a small tram bus and who do we strike up a conversation with? A tech guy who repairs laptops for a living. Crazy right? What is the probability that everything just lined up so perfectly. There I was with a laptop with no hard drive and worried that it would cost a lot of money to get it fixed. I had no clue how to get it fixed and by who. But the universe provided because moments later I would meet a tech guy on the bus who would get my computer running and fixed for a total of $50 dollars which was a cheap price I could afford.
That day was absolutely magical, that day cemented and embodied Law of attraction to me and the perfect ability that the universe has of taking care of us.
I am learning more and more each day that there is no need for willpower or effort on our behalf. All we need to do is believe that the universe will provide, we just need to have faith and trust that we will get what we desire and leave everything else to the Universe.
