Law of Attraction Not Working – Try This Instead
I was really inspired by an email by Lisa Marie Hayes about what do I do if the law of attraction is not working for me – 5 Things To Do After You Give Up On Deliberate Creation. I really loved this email because I have been having quite a lot of conversations with Clients who are amazing manifestors – I’m a law of attraction coach so a lot of my Clients are naturally into law of attraction and a lot of our discussions are around that.
They are amazing manifestors, but they can start getting stuck in that feeling of ‘it’s not working for me’, ‘I don’t know what to do, maybe I’m not asking for the right thing’, ‘maybe I’m not asking for things in enough detail’ – they just feel like there is something wrong with whatever they are asking the universe for or they’re are not allowing enough, all sorts of things could be going on in their mind.
What I have found is, once people are into the law of attraction, sometimes it can all get a little bit too serious and this seriousness, this need and desperation that we start to feel around receiving what we want to receive after we’ve put it out there to the universe, can actually push that very thing away from us because we stop being in that relaxed mode, we stop feeling good about life, we stop feeling good about who we are, where we are and it creates this push, this resistance that wasn’t there before.
Now the amazing thing is, if you look around you at people who aren’t necessarily into law of attraction – but of course law of attraction is still working on their behalf because the universal laws work in everyone’s life, whether they know they are there or not. You’ll see that people appear to get things quite effortlessly – there may be someone you know who can be quite negative and moan and groan about certain things but they haven’t got this thing in the way – this almost like too much awareness of the law of attraction that might stop them from receiving what they want through this resistance and push that we are putting out there.
So this email from Lisa Marie Hayes just reminded me of some of the conversations I’ve had with my coaching Clients which was to almost forget about the law of attraction (which sounds like a funny, counter-intuitive thing when know we can create our own reality), but to just relax more, so stop this feeling of having to have something, just relax more and try and feel good. Lisa Marie was discussing things like de-cluttering your home, clearing out the old to make way for the new but not with any particular intention behind it. I think the key to it really is just feeling good and creating that space in your life for whatever it is to come in, but just do it for the sake of feeling good, for the sake of feeling great about decluttering your space. Enjoying the experience of relaxing, enjoying the experience of being with loved ones or whatever it is that gives you that sense of fun, makes you feel lighter about yourself and stops you being so obsessed with this law of attraction thing.
You know, I love law of attraction, every aspect of universal laws that are related to law of attraction and all the other laws just totally fascinate me but sometimes we can take everything a bit too seriously and we just need to learn to relax more.
So if you are feeling a bit stuck, then what I would challenge you to do today is to think, right, where can I let go, where can I surrender all of this wanting for this particular thing and just learn to relax more in my life so that what I want is just going to come to me though the path of least resistance – and maybe in a way that you weren’t even expecting which will be absolutely amazing.
