Learning To Trust In The Universe!
All my life I have been told to be realistic and let go of my dreamer ways. I was the child that believed in magic and miracles. It was an innate capability! Slowly with time, all that was seeped out of me by my family who would constantly tell me that I needed to be more realistic and practical.
I heard about The Secret when it first came out. I saw an interview of the entire cast on Oprah. I was shocked and excite at the same time! I bought the book and read it. It took me awhile to master the techniques because I had learned to think “logically”. Once I did, the believing became easy. I would repeat a few affirmations in my head and I could actually change outcomes! It was that easy for me then!
Fast forward a couple of years and I was back to being realistic, fearful, practical and depressed! I went through a really bad time in my life and I couldn’t, for the life of me, get my head in to believing in anything good!
I read and watched The Secret again and watched countless LOA videos on YouTube! One of my favorite things to do was read the The Secret Stories on this website. They helped a lot!
It took me months to rewire my brain and start focusing on what I wanted rather than what I was afraid of. I started focusing on being happy and grateful.
What I have learned is that those thoughts that you offer the least resistance to, happen instantly. In the last week this is what has happened to me:
1. I wanted a job and I released an intention of receiving a job. The very next day I was offered one at a reputed school! I hadn’t even applied! The principal, a family friend, approached me!
2. I had a feeling that I would run in to an old friend. I couldn’t shake the feeling and within two days we ran in to each other at a cafe! That particular cafe is on the other side of town for her.
3. I have started appreciating myself more and have started getting compliments. My self esteem had been zapped to zero before.
LOA is real! It takes a while to make it part of your life because your brain is so busy refuting it most of the time, at least that is what happened to me.
I am so grateful that I was exposed to this knowledge. It has been such a blessing for me. One of the most important things to do is constantly keep learning about this law. Read different books and blogs! Listen to online lectures! What works for others may not work for you. So you have to find techniques that work for you.
Stop obsessing about what you want! I am still working on this one! Learn to let go and don’t worry about the “hows”!
