You see, I understand the law of attraction, and I have seen it work in my life. I believe that I am the creator of everything I experience and I take 100% responsibility for whatever comes to me. Therefore, I am very attentive to what I experience day to day and I am always fascinated to understand how what ive been thinking or feeling attracted something to me.
However, sometimes, it feels like this law just isn't working for me. I seem to do all the right things, yet I don't get the result that I want. I used to think that I must have been doing something wrong, but now I see it another way.
The Ego vs. The Soul
You see, there are 2 ways you can live your life. One is from the mind/ego where you believe you run the show. You make the decisions. You choose your path. You believe you know what is right for you and you go after it. The other way, is more spiritual. It is where you realise that your higher self actually knows everything, not you. You come to know that you are merely a vehicle for your spirit to express itself.
We may think we are just are purely our mind and body, but in fact we are a spiritual being that has come forth in to this life with a purpose and a mission. There are things to learn and soul qualities that require developing. Part of living from this place means dropping the arrogant ego belief that we know best and actually acknowledging that we know nothing compared to our higher self and the universal mind.
Sometimes what you want for you, isn't actually what your higher self wants for you. When things don't work out, it may just be that the way you think it is all supposed to unfold is actually not in line with the larger plan.
The universe may in fact block what you want from coming to you because you are not yet ready to receive it, or because more inner work needs to be done before you get it. It may take you off on a side track or push you down the rabbits hole in order for you to learn some soul lessons. It may feel like you are going backwards for a bit. You may be thrown in to a very challenging situation that will cause you to change who you are in order to cope. You may be given a big task to tackle or a big problem to overcome.
Find the Light in the Darkness
These challenges will force you to have to grow inside yourself in order to survive them. These times can often be called the dark night of the soul as you are pushed up a against a wall and forced to find a new way to solve your problem. It may feel like a scary and uncertain time. But if you are willing to look beyond the outer experience you may find a deeper meaning.
These challenges may force you to go inwards, to heal some old hurts, to learn to love yourself, to release some fears, to learn to forgive, to learn inner strength or courage. If you are willing to do this inner work, you will find the light in the darkness.
The best way to deal with these times is to just let go and surrender to the process. Rather than fighting it or trying to fix it or trying to change it or runaway from it, just be with it.
Accept this experience for what it is. Refrain from labelling something as bad or wrong. Let go of the need to judge the now. Stop projecting stories from the past on to this moment. Stop ruining the beautiful now with fears of the future. Accept where you are. Embrace it. Open your arms and say yes to whatever the universe is delivering to you.
You may not be able to see the big picture right now. You might not be able to understand why on earth this is happening to you. But trust me, there is a reason. There is a grand plan that you are a part of. Sometimes if you are not following that plan, your higher self will step in and mess things up for a while in order to wake you up.
We are all being called to wake up right now. The world is falling apart and in order for us to heal our planet we all must first wake up in ourselves
Lovingly embrace whatever challenges are delivered to you. Do not worry if things are not turning out as you planned. Trust that there is a higher force at play in your life that is guiding you and can see the bigger picture. Be at peace with where you are and with whatever is coming to you, and be willing to do the inner work to heal the outer struggle.
