It has a been a few days since I started applying the Law of Attraction to my daily life. I will admit the first few days came pretty easy. Each night I read my worksheets that I had filled out, listed what I was grateful for, and each morning I would run through my head what I want in life. Finishing each session with a prayer
( remember that I am combining my Christian faith with LOA) . That worked for two days. Yesterday and some today old habits trying to seep in. The doubt, the wavering. Kind of started when friend said to me that she did not believe in it; the theory had a lot of holes in it. She would rather expect less, believe in less coming her way so she was not disappointed. The pessimist in me started fighting against the new optimism. I tried stopping, turning the negative to positive, sadly there has been a few things get in the way even after I had done so. But I kept doing my nightly gratitudes and it really helps my husband is really trying too ( was my Christmas gift from him to me, as he really is not one to read) . Then while my brain was playing tug a war I received this in my email , it was a Chinese reading.....
When your Internet goes out, sometimes all it takes is hitting the reset button. Life is like that, too. You might need to power off for a while in order to make a fresh start. If things have not gone your way lately, don't try to plow through obstacles. Unplug, wait, and then give it another go.
I rather liked that and it is very true. My brain was needing a re-boot. It may need to happen over and over to be able to go longer and longer in between times of negative thoughts seeping in. I have not been sleeping well, aches and pains have increased with the cold, damp weather and I do believe hormones are not helping with things as well, so re-booting is EXACTLY what I needed. So working on that tomorrow....today was just so busy I could not find a time to just sit and work on me and relaxing and taking care of my body and soul. Tomorrow is to be a rainy day. I have a new cinnamon vanilla tea AND was able to buy a scented candle and plan to tune the world out for a while.
With that in mind, I sat down to write my blog for today, and wanted to clear my email out first, respond to comments on the previous posts , that type of thing and in my in box was this, a tarot reading....always amuses me that the pictures that look the most negative seem to be the most positive readings. Total polar opposite.
"The Tower card suggests that my alter ego today is the Survivor, whose superpower for revolution lies in my epiphany for change, brought on with the aid of a serious reality check. Today I have reached a turning point. It may be all over but the crying -- but I have the strength to move on and create a better situation for myself. You may say that I never saw it coming or learned the hard way, but with profound change comes new opportunity. One door closes -- another opens. So tear down the wall, and rebuild anew."
I REALLY LIKE THIS ONE!!! Reading this over and over just re-instated what I want, what I need in my life. What I need and want to work towards. It could have come in the form of a prayer, scripture or a quote from one of the positive sites I receive emails and tweets from, no matter, it was in a generic tarot card, computer generated but it held so much meaning.
Other odd little things, going back over fortunes from cookies we got from Chinese take out when re-read when I was cleaning off my desk, all seem to point to things I wrote in my work book...
" A big fortune will descend upon you this year"
"A long term goal will soon be achieved"
" A thrilling time is in store for you " * Got two of these.
"An unexpected event will bring you riches"
I have had these for months now ..and I know I have more stashed elsewhere and now am eager to pull them out. They may just be random slips of paper that have been inserted into cookies; anyone could receive them...BUT MAYBE......something to pray about.
I wanted to share with you a few gratitude's. Things I am thankful for ...some are pretty mundane in the scheme of things, but I am trying to learn to take joy from the simple things best that I can .
