I’m Not Your Mama
Recently I was listening to some of the Abraham material from Law of Attraction. In it, Abraham said the law of attraction isn’t like your mother. I thought that was a good analogy I’d expand upon for you.
When we’re little and something bad happens, we skin our knee or our friend hurts our feelings, what do we normally do? Run to mama for comfort. Mom gives you a hug and kiss and makes it all better.
Your mother can soothe you by making you feel all better. Or scold you into feeling better by saying things like, “You can do better!” or “You’re so stupid, you need to do it this way!” or “Why can’t you figure it out? You have a brain!” Derogatory things like that. Scolding rarely works, or at least not in the long-run. It’s not a very functional way to treat our child or ourselves, yet we still say things like that to ourselves. Where does it get us? Not very far. But we re-play the tapes our parents gave us out of habit.
The Law of Attraction Isn’t Going to Save You!
If you feel bad, the Law of Attraction isn’t going to swoop and say, “Hey! Stop that! You know better! Change your vibration!” or soothe you with, “There, there, that’s ok, go curl up in a ball and have a bad day, it’s ok.”
The Law of Attraction is going to bring you more of what you’re thinking about. Not like your mama.
If you feel bad, it will bring you more of feeling bad. If you feel good, it will bring you more of that too. It doesn’t judge or play favorites. However you feel, it will bring you more of. It can’t take away your fears or soothe your hurts or give you a hug. That’s all up to us. We’re not little kids anymore. It’s time to take responsibility for our thoughts and feelings.
If you think you already do, great. If you think you already do but life isn’t working out the way you’d like, then take a second look at your thoughts and feelings. You know the drill, what you think about, you bring about.
We’re Not in Kansas Anymore
We have to be responsible for our vibration. Mama may’ve helped us (or not) when we were little, but we’re not little anymore. We left Kansas, Dorothy. Now it’s up to us.
Because Law of Attraction brings us what we think about, that’s why it’s so vital to pay attention to our thoughts. If you’re not sure, take a look at your life. How’s it workin’ out for ya?
If you want to make money but your thoughts are constantly on your dwindling bank account or your mountain of debt, that’s not exactly going to bring you money, is it? Not via law of attraction, it won’t. People who know nothing about law of attraction can make good money. Why is that? Because they don’t think negative thoughts about money. Or if they do, they push them out. They don’t know they’re using the principles of manifestation, but they are.
The same principle applies if you want to meet a partner. If you’re always noticing you’re alone or how you’ll never meet anyone, what does that do for ya? Brings you more of being alone. Again, people who don’t know anything about law of attraction meet people every day. How do they do it? They don’t focus on not having a partner.
That is why goal-oriented people achieve their goals – they focus on them, not a lack of them. They may know nothing about law of attraction, but they still succeed in achieving their goals. They may not realize they hold the key, but they do.
Some Day Isn’t on the Calendar
For those of us who do know about it and still don’t apply it, well, we’re the ones still struggling. Still wishing we got that new job or met that partner. Wishing someday our life would turn around. Last time I checked, some day isn’t on the calendar!
Put it on the calendar by making today the day you start monitoring your thoughts. Today’s the day you start noticing how you feel. Today’s the day you take the first step to take control of your life. Your mama isn’t here to do it for you, it’s all up to you now.
If you need proof that you aren’t monitoring your thoughts, as I said, look at your life. If it’s working, if you have what you want, then you’re doing a great job. If you don’t, go back to square one. Take stock of your life – honestly. Are you where you want to be? Do you live where you want to live? Do you date the type of person you want to be with? If you’re not getting positive answers, then retrace your steps to your thoughts. They will always reveal how your life is going.
We’re adults now so we have to self-soothe. We also know scolding and “shoulding” ourselves into doing something isn’t motivating. Mama won’t do it for you anymore. We all have to put on our big girl and big boy pants and take heed of the principles of law of attraction. Abraham won’t do it for you either.
Everything you have and don’t have is because of your thoughts. Think about that one for a while.
