Breaking Down Barriers , The Law of Attraction Part III

Standard

I’m simply thrilled with the new followers that have recently joined An Urban Mystic’s Blog . It feels like I’ve made some more friends in the WordPress neighbourhood.  I took some time out to read as many posts as I could over the last 2 weeks, and I was quietly impressed by the amount of sheer talent and creativity buzzing around. A lot of pieces of were inspirational, some of them funny, a few heartwarming, and many were incredibly thought provoking. I saw some amazing cartoons and heard some fantastic music too. The written word is a powerful representation and I  enjoyed getting introduced to you through your beautiful offerings to the world. A very warm welcome to the Urban Mystic’s virtual home! 🙂

So, we took a short hiatus from the Law of Attraction because I (  as usual) was trying to pack as much as possible into a 24 hr day and I ( as usual) was running amok to try and get everything out on time. The dust seems to be settling..for now atleast. Coming back to the matter at hand, let’s take a look at Part III of the Law of Attraction series, and this week’s post is a biggie. We’re going to be exploring the things that stand in the way of being able to manifest the things that you really want in your life. Woo hoo!

A lot of people believe that the Law of Attraction is just simply airy fairy wishful thinking.  Not True. Like we talked about in Part I of the series, the Law of Attraction is as natural as the cycles and seasons of the earth. It works whether you choose to believe in it or not. It’s just there, and runs in the background regardless of even your awareness of it. Why then do some people not get what they’re looking for despite their very sincere attempts at manisfestation.

Here’s the thing. It’s important that your emotions and your feelings are ALIGNED with your thoughts. Now, when I say aligned, it simply means that the clear, specific goal that you’ve set for yourself should generate feelings of hope, happiness and excitement within you. If your goal in anyway does not make you feel this way, you pretty much have a block. And this block tends to stand in the middle between you and your goal, and the twain therefore do not meet.

Think about for instance your goal of manifesting $ 100,000. You’ve set this goal and made it as specific as possible. You’ve said ” I already have the $ 100,000 dollars I wanted. It feels good in my hands and I like the smell of these freshly printed banknotes. I can’t wait to spend it on the things I want. It has come through to me in the safest of ways. And I continue to receive abundantly.” Awesome! Fantastic! But what do you really FEEL about getting this money inside in your heart of hearts. You’re saying the words but are you feeling it?. Do you really thing it’s possible to get all that money just by willing it to happen?. Think about this very carefully now, because your answer holds the key to that door which stands in the way of you receiving immeasurable abundance.

Many people are brought up with the feeling that money has to be earned, and that there’s no such thing as “easy money”. A lot of people also have a common belief and feeling that money is  the root of all evil. With thoughts like this it’s next to impossible to flow into material abundance. It’s important to come to a place where you genuinely feel deserving of all the good things that are already there in your life and continue to flow inwards.  Without this, the Law of Attraction might not get you the results you are looking for. It will continue to work but it will attract to you what you really believe in, in your heart of hearts. If you keep repeating to yourself that you’re going to get the money in an attempt at manifestation but in your heart you’re really not resonating with this thought, it’s anybody’s guess what’s going to happen next.

So the “homework” for this week is to examine your thought processes and feelings moment to moment or as often as is possible and

look for thoughts that are not in harmony with abundance. Anything that causes resistance or creates feelings of heaviness/sadness/depression/worry and so forth create discord in manifestation, and you need to work on eliminating them from your conscious and unconscious minds. When you think about a particular goal, and you start to feel the heaviness, clearly something is wrong and getting down and focusing on your heart and your breath will give some sense of direction as to what the cause for addressal really is. Remember to control the negative thoughts and stick to the process of immediately replacing negative thoughts with positive feelings and associations untill it becomes a habit. The Law of Attraction loves people who function from a joyous, grateful and optimistic perspective.

On that note, I take your leave for this week.

As always if there’s anything you want to talk about or comment on, I’m happy to hear from you. Blessings, Peace , Prosperity. Namaste 🙂

Feelings ,Your Guidepost To Wholeness And Wellbeing

Standard

Our feelings are a very important part of who we are. They serve us in the same fashion as an internal barometer or guidepost to what makes us feel good and what does not. In understanding and acknowledging our feelings, we are better able to make informed decisions on the things that drive us , motivate us and make us who we really are.

Think backwards to a time when you last felt nervous. Do you remember the knots in your stomach and how your heartbeat started to increase just by finding yourself thinking about the situation that made you nervous. How about when you first saw someone and understood the sensation of “love at first sight”. There was that incredible endorphin rush , the feel good feeling in your stomach and the immense joy and happiness you felt in your heart. Was there ever a time you felt upset about something. Do you remember how that felt?

Our feelings in all of these situations are showing us and bringing us to an awareness of what makes us comfortable and what does not. Our body, in it’s infinite intelligence and wisdom, brings theses emotions to the surface in an effort to make us understand and address them . It is our body’s desire to keep us in a consistent state of balance and it can only do so by drawing our attention to imbalances in the best ways it can.  But symptomatic as it is of modern day living, many of us choose to suppress these feelings and emotions especially those which are considered negative in nature, like anger and jealousy for example, and in doing so, cause great distress to ourselves in the long term.

For instance, let’s just say someone said something to you today that made you feel really bad. You really felt the pain of sadness and rejection , especially since that someone was a really close friend. But like most people you start to rationalise. You think, I don’t care what she said. You think, So what?. You think, It doesn’t bother me what she says, I know who I am.  You try to bury your feelings. You don’t share how bad you felt with anyone you know because you don’t want anyone to know how weak you are, or maybe you just don’t want anyone else to worry about you. But by doing this, the pain does not go away. You simply internalise it. When you internalise it, you don’t express the hurt feelings. When you don’t express the hurt feelings, that little sensation registers in your body and creates a disruption in your field of energy. Once this little disruption is created, its creates a block in the way you perceive things. You will no longer feel the sensation of being completely safe, secure and loved in the world untill you deal with this little block you choose to deny.

The most important thing to remember to always maintain ourselves in the state of  grace is to express our feelings. If you feel sad, cry. If you feel angry , express your anger and find healthy ways to do so. You can shout your head off in the privacy of your room or you can punch your pillow. Have close friends that you can talk to and express your feelings to. Not only will you feel lighter because the feelings are being cleared, but also you will become more centred and aware. Listening to the perspectives shared by your friends also provides a fresh angle on any event and puts things in better light. If you’re not the talking kind, take part in physical activity. Yoga is particularly beneficial for bringing yourself back to balance. Buried emotions never really die. If you do not make the effort to express your feelings, you will go through life on automatic mode, never really experiencing or learning from the full range of emotions that we as humans are here to experience.

Explore and understand physical manifestations of discomfort. A lot of times you may not even be sure of what you feel. If this is the case, look to your body for guidance. Do you feel that tension in your chest. Close your eyes, and bring your awareness and attention to the area of tension. Breathe in and out deeply whilst you focus on it. Ask the area what is the source of this pain. When you do this you may get an image in your head or maybe a sound or a memory that resurfaces in your mind’s eye which points you in the direction of it’s origin. Whenever we do not feel good about something, this is our body’s way of signalling to us that something is wrong and we need to address it. So, pay more attention to your feelings. Something as simple as just being aware and paying attention to how you feel is  all it takes to dissipate the negativity.

Men have feelings too. And they run just as deep. It’s just that men have been socially conditioned not to show signs of weakness. They are taught mostly to always look strong and masculine. But this does not mean that they cannot explore their feelings. You just need to find ways , moments or places where you can review your feelings and feel safe to do so. Man or woman, we all want the same things.

Listen to Your Feelings. If something does not feel right, and does not seem like the right path for you, follow your instincts.  When you ignore your feelings consistently , over a period of time you start to lose track of your inner compass and you go through life mindlessly based on what you should or must do as opposed to what you really want to do.

Do more of the things that make you feel good. Just like feelings of discomfort guide us to what is wrong with our lives, feelings of joy guide is to what is right with our lives and what gladdens our hearts. Do more of the things that make you happy. Do more of the things that feel right. Spend more time with the people that make you feel good. The more you focus on happiness and positivity , the more will such feelings expand, and the more you can continue to expect more of the good things in your life. The Universe says what you feel you will attract. If that’s the case, would you not try to find your bliss today.
