The Other Side of the Law

Further to my recent post, The Law of Attraction, there is one aspect that should be addressed, which is not covered in the video. According to the Law of Attraction, we have the power to shape our lives as we wish. Through focused intent, including mental imagery, conscious thought, and the accompanying emotions that go along with having it already, we can manifest our every dream. This is wonderfully empowering knowledge, which removes the mental limitations we all have for ourselves.

They tell us in the video, that the universe will rearrange itself to bring us that which we are focusing on, for better or worse. It is easy to understand that if we think negative thoughts and feel pessimistic about life, that is what we will get.

What is not so obvious is, in the process of drawing to oneself those positive dreams, other aspects of life which are not in alignment with those dreams, will fall by the wayside. It may in fact seem, as though they are literally ripped away so fast it makes your head spin. This part can be extremely painful! There may be things in life which do not serve you, which cause grief or stress, yet you may not be completely ready to let those things go.

However, when the powerful Law of Attraction takes hold, and the universe begins to rearrange itself according to what you have asked, the transition period requires absolute TRUST on your part that everything is happening as it should.

For example, let us say you have decided to attract a better job. You may in fact lose your existing job first, only to have that better job delivered right on its tail. Let us say you want to have the ultimate love relationship. Your current partner may not be that person, and you may find THEY suddenly leave YOU. The key is to remain unshaken in your convictions, even when the existing circumstance does not fit neatly into what you thought you wanted.

There is a transition period which requires absolute faith in the process, knowing that the universe, in its infinite wisdom, is rearranging itself according to what you have requested. The universe can see what is just around the bend, whereas we must drive on blindly trusting that all we have asked for will be right there as we expected, just around the corner. This is the part they dont warn you about in the video. They do not tell you about the painful losses that may occur, the short-term turmoil that could be caused, nor equip you to deal with those temporary losses as they occur.

This is where I am today. People I love so dearly, to whom I was so attached, are suddenly being torn away from me. I stand back and watch in amazement at their actions and deeds, as they exit my life of their own accord. It hurts so badly, I havent stopped crying for the past 24 hours. Things I wanted so much to be true, situations I had so dearly hoped would unfold, have suddenly sprouted wings and flown away from me.

The only thing I have right now is HOPE and TRUST, that everything is unfolding as it should. Knowing what I know, I have to ACCEPT that those situations and people were not meant for me. They are not in alignment with my dreams, even though I believed they could be. Yet losing them does not hurt any less.

If I can make one recommendation, on top of all the wisdom conveyed by the video, it would be this: When using the Law of Attraction, be sure to envision having a smooth transition, otherwise you may experience what I am now. That is, to have everything start moving so quickly into place, throwing everything else wildly out of place in its wake. If you are not ready for that, try using the Law of Attraction in smaller ways first, rather than going straight for the gusto like I did.

When the changes come, allow yourself to feel whatever pain it is you need to feel, yet all the while repeating to yourself over and over, "let it go, let it go, let it go, it is for the best, just let it go." Have peace in your heart, knowing sometimes short-term pain is required to make room for long-term gain.

With love and light,
Michele Angelique

When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
there will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, .....

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, .....
~~~~~~

Michele, I feel your pain. Just know that it will pass. When? I cannot tell you, but it will. Things do happen for a reason. In the meantime, if the power of the Law of Attraction can be directed towards someone else, then it is my intent that you achieve the goals and dreams you wish for yourself.

You are like a precious gem, a diamond. But to go from a lump of carbon to a beautiful diamond, requires tremendous pressure, heat, and time. Then it must be still be cut and polished before it's ultimate beauty is revealed. Based on your posting, and all that you've done for us/with us in Gender Evolve, I already know you are a diamond. What you are currently experiencing in your personal life is just some fine tuning by a higher power; some cutting and polishing. It is part of your ongoing transformation, a journey that does not stop until we die. Your destiny is yet to be realized.
