What is Law Of Attraction?
A more modern consensus among 'New Thought' thinkers is that the Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too.
For the past eight months or so my friend Gen and I have been going through a workbook and focusing on cleaning out our 'life closet' of the negative and overly needy things that we for some reason hold on to when we know they are not beneficial to achieving a happier and higher plain of living. Do not get me wrong, we have family and work environments that are and might always be negative, and so we just learn how to leave it at the door when we get home.
Lurking though...in our 'life closet' are those things that we have not left at the door and because we let them they have our cell and home numbers, or just happen to know where our favorite beverage stations are all around town.
As we move to create a more positive attraction of circumstances, hobbies, and friendships we will see coincidences pop up from time to time, and I just happen to have a biggy friend situation pop up this past week.
The friends near and dear to me in the past eight years have remained. Donna Kay and Gen my two sister girlfriends have helped me through a great deal, but there are a few people who I have known since early childhood that seem to pop in and out of my life so often that I began to except that pattern, but felt we were close because of the amount of years. After careful thinking I have decided to let them know that I choose not to except their repeated pattern of having me around when they feel the need, and that after careful thinking I realize that we really had nothing in common, and just had mutually used each other to bide our time over the years.
Boy does the truth seem to dodge reality, but when it feels right then it probably is the right thing to do. We waste so much of our attention and time on those things that we should realize are taking energy that could be put into something else...like my next blog topic 'Charity'...
