To many interpreters of The Secret, one must merely sit, preferably in sun-salutation pose, and think of that which is most desired for it to appear, almost as if teleported from the land of eternal possibilities, right to your doorstep…better yet right in front of your big toe, at arm’s length. While I believe in the law of attraction, and have seen it at work many times in my life, this information can be misleading. The result: lots of doing nothing, with the energetic intention of getting something.
On the other end of the spectrum we have the doers, of the “good things come to those who work hard” school. The result: lots of doing A LOT, with the energetic intention of doing A LOT.
While the “thoughts become things” concept can be proven by quantum physics, specifically the work of Werner Heisenberg, it’s still widely considered hocus-pocus mumbo-jumbo. And, on the other hand, we all know of people who work and work, and do and do all their lives to no avail. So, who’s right?
Both. For some reason we seem to love to compartmentalize, thinking our arm is separate from our leg is separate from our stomach is separate from our head. The Universe/Source/God, you, me, our thoughts, our actions, our bodies, all other beings, and everything in between are intricately interwoven. EVERYTHING you do, say, think, and feel has contributed to what you are getting out of life in this very moment.
Then you think, “Man, but that’s a lot of work to get my head, heart, and actions all working together!” Yea, it is. Truly getting the Universe to deliver your dreams to your doorstep is a team effort of all the parts that make up your amazing self. It’s choosing your thoughts, exploring your feelings, and consequently aligning your actions. A million dollars would be nice, and you can meditate and visualize living the millionaire’s lifestyle, in fact, that’s a huge part of it. But, what was that? Did you say you never play the lottery? Oh, that’s cool. And how about you? Did I hear you say that you ALWAYS buy a lotto ticket at 7-11 but you “know” you’ll never win? Alrighty then. So, do you see how disconnected we are? Play the lotto AND act as though you’re already a millionaire. Believe it, feel it, act on it. It’s really the only way to create a life you love. Do the work, and you’ll be surprised at how much life reacts in your favor.
Sending you lots of love and big hugs
