Two Things to Do
We’ve been discussing how our deeper mind forms an image of ourselves based on our past actions, which for most of us- ain’t pretty. We’re being brutally honest here because we all have intimate knowledge of our faults and weaknesses and about those times we might have cheated in some form to gain the upper hand. With that knowledge comes a handicap, for if what we’ve done was feather our own nest somehow at the expense of another, the opinion of ourselves begins to form that we don’t have enough. This is as true about love as it is about money, or a hundred other things. The opinion that we are living in lack is what The Law of Attraction would begin act upon, bringing us even more scarcity. What this means is that if we believe we are truly blessed in every way, then we will attract more blessings through the operation of this law. If we believe we don’t have enough, if we believe we are living without, then that’s what the law sets down at our doorstep.
Now that we’ve explained that, here are two simple things we want to do to correct this mess. The first is really critical. We want to fully and completely forgive ourselves for our past ignorance and incorrect actions and thinking. We’re human, we make mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes. Those who think they don’t are even more mistaken than the rest of us! We should want to forgive others as well, and forgiveness is nothing more than fully and completely letting go. We want to start with a clean slate for ourselves, but in order to do that, we want to give that same measure of grace to everyone we think about. That doesn’t mean we let the murderers or the child molesters go free, but it does mean that we stop them from having any influence in our own heart by wishing for them enlightenment as they face their punishment and consequences.
Next, we want to make changes in how we do thing, how we see things, and what we think about things. We want to see all our blessings from a perspective of awe and wonder. We want to look for the good in everything and everyone and trumpet it. If we are of the understanding that we are wealthy in our relationships, our friends, our possessions, and our finances then by the workings of The Law of Attraction we will be further blessed with more. How do you feel wealthy when the bank account is low and the bill collectors are calling? By focusing on what you have instead of what you haven’t.
One of the people we knew at work was fond of the saying, “I used to be sad that I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” We’ve just got to get better at understanding what true wealth is and appreciating it because we’ve been blessed in so many ways we’ve forgotten about. Special thanks to Jim Kroll for reminding us of that saying, rest in peace, buddy.
