Chaos to Calm, Law of Attraction

LOA Why You Need to Let It Go

This week I was asked a great question and I got inspired to share my view on the LOA. Keep focusing on your desire and when to let it go.

Question:

I just saw ‘Law of attraction’ on the side bar of your blog page and I’m yet to read your posts about it. I have been dying to ask somebody a question
regarding LOA without sounding delusional to the sceptics. Just wondering your thoughts on this one because I’m beyond confused with all the information
I have read. Everyone says to focus on your desire with intense feeling until you get it, but others say ask, believe- LET GO, and then receive. I
have tried the letting go part and it does work but which is it supposed to be? Any ideas?

Answer:

That is actually a great question and one I tried and tried to feel and get my head around. My thoughts are:

The LOA is about focusing on what you want and not what you don’t have.

When you focus on what you want you create a desire to have it.

You need to focus on the feeling of already having what you desire which is where the ‘let it go’ comes in because otherwise you create doubt. What I mean is that when you only focus on what you want you probably attach feelings to it from a place of not having it. And then when your desire doesn’t show
up you keep focusing on ‘why me, what is wrong, the LOA doesn’t work, every time I ask for something it doesn’t show up’ and the doubt intensifies.

When you know for sure that you want the desire, you need the desire, it will show up, only then will you have no doubts, then the desire will show up.

  • Ask.
  • Believe you already have it.
  • Each day feel the feeling of already having it.
  • Let it go so your doubt can’t creep in.
  • Receive, be open to the opportunity for it to show up.

Life is all about the journey to get your desire and not the destination. When you only focus on the end result you miss the present moment and the energy to create in the NOW.

Let go of the end result and enjoy the opportunities that are around you when you are aware and open. This helps to cement your desire and make you really want it or tweak your desire.

Law of Attraction

Do coincidences really exist? Do they?

I don’t think anything is random. Sometimes you have to look back at all the events leading up to the coincidence and realise that everything happened
for a reason.

You made choices along the way to get where you were for the coincidence to show up.

You can analyse it till the cows come home but sometimes you just have to go with the flow and jump at every opportunity that is in front of you.

You might not know where it will take you but if it feels right then jump. Of course, if it feels wrong then that is your warning system and you should
listen.

I will share with you a string of events that lead me to having my first article published in a magazine.

It was a normal weekend towards the end of last year and I was flicking through a local magazine, you know the general, what happening around town magazine that gets thrown on your driveway. I was sitting in bed having a coffee and wondering what to do and also relishing the fact that there was nothing scheduled, no where to be, no sporting event to run the kids to etc. You know the joys of being a parent and some weekends it’s unrelenting.

I saw an ad for the mind, body, spirit festival and it happened to be on today. My husband said I should go. You see I wasn’t feeling in a happy place
so it was probably a message of ‘go and enjoy yourself’ mixed with ‘I know you will be happier when you get back after a few hours away’.

The decision was made in the spur of the moment and to be honest I probably could not race out the house quick enough for some ‘me’ time. The festival was only a few minutes away which was also an added bonus.

Within 5 minutes of arriving there was a guided meditation starting. My first reaction was that I wanted to jump in and see the festival, all the stalls
and soak up the atmosphere.

There was something about the way the lady at the front desk told me about the meditation and I made the decision that it was probably best for me to relax, find some calm and clear my thoughts. Half an hour later my energy had completely changed and I was not only calm but probably the calmest I had been in weeks.

I wandered around the brightly coloured stall, sampled the wonderful food, smelt the incense and plucked up the courage to talk about my second book Free to be me that I was days away from finished.

At one of the stalls I met Sharon Rowland, the editor of the Oddities e-Club Magazine. I mentioned my book Free to be me and she offered to review it.
I was over the moon. It still took me a further couple of months before the book was ready for release but I remembered to send it to Sharon.

Little did I know that I would be invited to write an article for the magazine and contribute more stories.

I am pleased to share with you the latest edition for you to check out https://www.magloft.com/app/oddities and their website www.odditieseclub.com

So had I not read the local magazine, or mentioned the festival, or been pushed (in a loving way) to go, or talked to Sharon, then this would never have happened. So you decide, do coincidences really exist or was this just a string of events that lead me to the right place at the right time?
