Did you know the Law of Attraction is actually about empowerment?
Because it’s a direct statement on your right to choose again. And that right comes from being a soul, here in this human body, ready to experience all that you can be 🙂
Sounds pretty cool, huh? But if you’re a little cynical like me, then you might be asking: how do you do that?! HOW do you experience all that you can be?
The Teachers have a very specific take on the Law of Attraction. They say it tells us something very powerful:
We have the right to choose again if there is something in our lives that does not sustain or fulfill us.
And as a result, we feel more empowered. That is, emotionally balanced and confident. We are in command of our own direction in life.
I’d already had some successes with the Law when they pointed this out to me. I could see the empowering benefits of “choosing again”. Mostly because I didn’t feel like that stuck, meek little girl anymore.
It was a kind of organic growth that occurred when I started to question what I wanted from life. But the Teachers had only just begun…
The next level of what they wanted to show me went straight to the heart of who I was – the SOUL. My calling, my passion, my life experiences, my desires, my connection to the Teachers, my role here on this earth.
They said when we set our goals from the soul we were already in alignment with the Law of Attraction. We don’t have to fight for soulful goals. We don’t have to fight to manifest anything. We just have to follow the steps to get there. The pathway is already written.
So, they highlighted, goals inspired by the soul were the REAL journey through life.
And I’ll tell you that WAS a little scary. Because the soul wants what the soul wants, and when you give the soul permission to speak, you can’t pretend you’re not a highly capable, loving, guided soul in a human body anymore.
My response, when I tuned in and saw what the soul wanted, was often: NO, NO, NO! I don’t want that… Because it was not what I’d been told was appropriate or normal. It often wasn’t common sense…
Of course… it all worked out fine. Of course, the soul never placed me in danger. Of course, my fears were proven false by the growth that occurred as I met these challenges.
My ‘NO’ was need. A way to play it small. A notice to myself that I am NOT strong enough to be what the soul is telling me I actually already am…
I’ve noticed how many of my clients feel the same way about their potential success. It’s not a fear of failure that holds us back. It’s a fear of success. We are terrified of being a shining, fucking star.
Not because we don’t think we can do it. We know we can.
It’s because we have to take responsibility for our thoughts, and our feelings, and our actions.
And some of those thoughts and feelings REALLY hurt. We’ve spent a long time disempowering ourselves by repressing them. Taking control over our lives by pretending they’re not there. Being strong by force, rather than strong through the love we have for ourselves.
And herein lies the issue most people have with the Law of Attraction…
Strength by force weakens us. It disempowers us because repressing means we push that pain to the subconscious. And it’s from the subconscious that we ATTRACT our reality. We create a cycle of experiencing the things we don’t want to experience again.
Strength by raw love, or soul, is empowering and courageous. It causes us to think differently, create boundaries to others needs, cease to judge ourselves negatively, and broadly speaking, to not give a shit when things go wrong because we no longer need to beat ourselves up to feel anything 🙂
From soul, we know that if we fail there’s no judgment, it is what it is. If we succeed, it’s because we were in alignment via the Law of Attraction.
The Teachers showed me that strength, and courage, and being that beautifully wild self, is innate to the soul. If we remove the covers from the soul, we are already EMPOWERED.
And those covers are the judgments and fears we hold onto when we repress, rather than process and let go of, our past experiences and teachings.
When we tap into the soul and use that to guide the goals we set for our lives, we find that it’s BIGGER, brighter, happier, more fulfilling than our scared little monkey minds foretell!
So, here’s the thing I want to share today…
Don’t be afraid to go big, but notice that if you’re willing to go big, you also need to be willing to let go of those old ideas that hold you back.
Take a moment to ask yourself what your soul wants. And take a moment to notice that the pathway is already there.
And on that note, via the Law of Attraction, I’m off to Bali tomorrow.
A couple of months ago I started getting a nudge that it was time for a holiday someplace tropical. So I set my intention to receive that.
A few days later my brother calls asking if I wanted to go to Bali, and that he’d pay for half my trip. I just needed to share a room with one of his kids.
Ummm… discounted, palm-tree and cocktails-by-the-pool based holiday, and I get to increase my FAQ (“Favorite Aunt Quotient”)… Yes, thanks…
With the right focus on soul, love and healing, the Law of Attraction always works. It works every time.
Leap in. What have you got to lose?!
