I feel like the Law of Attraction is getting a bad rap lately; mainly, it seems to be due to a generality that it’s all about “positive thinking”. Want more money? Just think positively and tell yourself you have tons of money, and all will be well, right? No, not exactly. I believe it is a bit more complex than that.
Everything originates from a thought, and each thought holds a specific vibration. This is where I feel like most people stop and get the idea that the Law of Attraction is all about positive thinking. To me, it’s about being open to possibility.
I recently listened to an episode of The Yes Effect with Shelli Varela, and she said something that stood out to me – “Don’t focus on logic. Focus on possibility.” Sometimes when we are working on manifesting something in our life we focus on “I want ________” Inadvertently, this also puts out the vibration “I don’t have ________.”
Shelli talked about how we can shift our focus from “I want…” to imagining possibility and how we will feel if that thing were to manifest in our life. This brings our emotions into play, which act like powerful magnets, helping to draw our intentions into reality. Also, when you open yourself up to possibility, you’re more likely to notice the various signs or opportunities coming from Spirit.
It’s important to remember that we’re the co-creators of our lives. When we’re focusing on possibility, we begin to receive intuitive hits that guide us. This is when we begin taking inspired action based on the guidance we receive, which helps us to level up, acquire new skills, and learn lessons that bring us into vibrational alignment with that which we desire.
Now, this does not mean that everything is going to be sunshine, rainbows and puppy dogs. When we go about working to manifest something, there may be new skills or lessons we must acquire or learn in order along the way. These new things might challenge us and will probably push us beyond our comfort zones.
When we encounter these challenges, it’s important that we don’t just ignore the discomfort and believe we can positively think it all away. Sometimes we have to work through our stuff. You can’t just put a bandaid on a gaping wound, so it’s important to treat any pain or trauma with the love and respect it deserves.
Personally, I choose to believe in the power of possibility. When we imagine what’s possible, we ignite an inner fire that drives us forward. Potential obstacles don’t seem so scary because we’re fired up and ready to go. We’re more open to explore and try new things that could help us manifest our deepest desires.
Please know that I do not claim this to be the end all be all. This is what has worked for me, so I wanted to share it with you in hopes that it helps you too. As always, take what resonates and leave the rest.
