A few years ago, when I watched The Secret, I was totally convinced that I could turn my life around by changing the way I think. The Law of Attraction has attracted many followers, and, as with all big movements, there are those who misinterpret the message, and make a mockery of the truth that is present. In an episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, the characters decide that they can each have what they want by "doing good deeds" and "gluing pictures of what we want on a poster board." The hilarious hijinks that ensue are a humorous take on how this message is misinterpreted.
The Law of Attraction is not about acquiring fancy cars and houses, in an attempt to fill your emptiness with material items. It is not about laying around the house and watching television, waiting for a leprechaun to drop a pot of gold on you. It's about being positive and proactive in your choices, and focusing on creating the life you want, by changing your thought patterns from negative to positive. It's about imagining yourself in a place of success, rather than in a state of fear and failure. "What you put out into the world is what you will get back." If you are constantly blaming others for your failures, then you will stay stuck in that energy. If you can turn that around and figure out what YOU are doing to sabotage yourself, THAT is the key. As I have said many times, it is NEVER about someone else. No one can take away who you are inside, and no one can stop you from fulfilling your life's purpose.
You may find other people in your way, from time to time, but these are just lessons you need to learn. Most of the lessons I have had to learn recently have been regarding boundaries. This word is another one that is misunderstood and overused, but for me, it jut means being clear with myself, and others, about who I am, and what I want. It's not about being angry, or rude to others. When you are truly setting loving boundaries, you have inner peace, and love for others. You don't need to use anger to keep people out. When you project love and peace, you will attract it back to you. The "angries" won't have any place to connect with you, and they will look elsewhere.
My younger years were full of anger and bitterness, and I am here to tell you, it is exhausting! Yes, I do still get mad, and sometimes say things I wish I hadn't, for I am still human:) But most of the time I am not angry for long, and I can let it go fairly easily. Emotions are part of being human, and if you are denying any of yours, do not be fooled into thinking you can sustain that for long. It will come out, one way or another. If you can stay grounded and present, you can deal with anything that comes your way, and learn the lessons attached to those feelings and reactions. I know it's a total cliche, but "everything happens for a reason," and the sooner you can trust that, the sooner you can stop resisting the flow of life, and really accept your destiny, fate, or whatever you want to call it.
Let go, and watch yourself grow!
