I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday. I know some of you may read the topic and wonder exactly what I mean. This past week, I was bombarded with a message and wanted to share my story with you. While running with a friend, I mentioned I was struggling with trusting in the law of attraction and the law of abundance 100%. I was almost there, but could not just let go and give in completely. I left our conversation thinking about what I would need to trust completely and the universe answered over and over again. It is funny how the world presents to us what we need when we need it.
Later in the day after my run, I got an email from a friend entitled "Attitude". Here is the email- There was once a woman who woke up in the morning, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only 3 hairs on her head. "Well" she said, "I think I will braid my hair today." So she did and had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only 2 hairs on her head. "HMM" she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today." So she did and had a grand day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well" she said, "today I am going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed there wasn't a single hair on her head. "Yay!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!" The email continued to say Attitude is everything... Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain.
I had also just started reading the book "The Law of Intention" by Wayne Dyer and I was feeling overwhelmed and I was not sure how to just let go. I was not sure whether to continue with the book but I had gotten the recommendation from a friend and decided to continue reading. I am so glad I did because the book unfolds in the perfect way and it really gave me steps and thoughts to use to set my intentions and trust completely in myself and the life I am creating. It also goes into detail about life being what you make of it and shows how your attitude toward others and yourself plays a huge role.
That same day, I got another email from this "Butterfly Experiment" I am doing. To learn more visit http://www.lorihamann.com/butterflyexperiment.htm. The topic of the day was "Limiting Beliefs". The message went into detail about how the only thing that can hold you back is your own limiting beliefs, but these beliefs can be changed if you are open to rewriting your mantra.
All alone, I may not have paid much attention to each topic on it's own, but when 3 things show up so quickly right after I ask for help, it is hard not to believe. My attitude and hesitancy in believing were exactly what was holding me back but once I opened myself up and asked for help, I got the answers I was looking for. Have you ever wondered how you get exactly what you need when you need it? Imagine if you actually invite more of what you need into your life and ask for things and they show up as easily as they did for me. Pretty powerful thinking isn't it?
Either journal about these questions or spend some time thinking through each answer.
- What keeps showing up for you in your life?
- Is it positive or negative?
- What is the message you need to get from it?
- What do you really want from your life?
- How can you trust in the process of inviting what you need into your life?
Be really conscious of what keeps showing up for you this week. What are you asking for and drawing into your life? Are you getting the message that keeps showing up?
Ralph Waldo Emerson- Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
Invite what you need into your life! Enjoy the journey!
