The LOA: Are You Giving Yourself Enough Credit?

When someone learns about the Law of Attraction, there’s often an interesting thing that happens.  Instead of celebrating all of the wonderful things he or she has created, the individual often beats up on him or herself for all of the things they haven’t yet created!  Are you giving yourself enough credit for the good things in your life you’ve attracted with the LOA, or do you often criticize yourself for not being further along?

I mention this because I’ve come to notice that often those who are Law of Attraction-savvy tend to get down on themselves for not having “figured out” the path to one of their dreams, and this can create a major road block in the manifestation process.  I even see this in myself from time to time!

Unfortunately, when we focus on what we haven’t yet created, we become negatively aligned and this drags down our vibes, making us even less of a match to the things that we want. You just can’t beat up on yourself for not manifesting something and attract that thing you want at the same time.  It defies the LOA!

So, the next time you are feeling down because you haven’t yet received something that you want, here’s something you can remind yourself of to stay positive and feel good anyways:

Remind yourself that you make an effort to be positive on a consistent basis, and not many people can claim the same. Remind yourself that every moment you’ve chosen the path of least resistance has benefited you, and that every time you have done this you have created good things in your life!

If you are making regular conscious choices to be grateful, stay present or be appreciative, you are doing good work.  Every choice that you make to raise your vibration and get centered is a choice that has brought you closer to the dream you’ve been reaching for. 

Getting what we want is all about being on a journey, it was never about getting everything all at once anyways. If you are frequently traveling on the optimistic and positive path, you are doing what you came to do, and when the time is right that thing you want will light up for you in the perfect way.  All you have to do is keep moving in the direction of your happiness.  That’s it.

By rewarding yourself for your positive choices, you will feel better about your life and you will become more positively aligned, and this will take a good deal of the “sting” out of any “bad” manifestations that have come your way.

So, when I can tell that I’m being a little too hard on myself for where I am, I often take a few minutes to talk myself back up in this way.

I remind myself of how much I have grown and how much more peaceful I have become over the last few years. I remind myself of all of the times I choose the path of least resistance when so many others choose to complain and argue or fight against their problems.  I remind myself that even this exercise I am doing in the present moment is a sign that I am consciously choosing a positive life, and I remind myself that I am proud of myself for choosing the positive path as frequently as I do. 

This quick pep-talk is highly empowering.  It’s the equivalent of dusting yourself off and getting back to business!

It’s easy to become fixated on the problems and the worries and the stresses. Truly mastering the LOA, however, is about becoming less reactive to the things we don’t want and we don’t have, and choosing to love ourselves anyway (in spite of our shortcomings!).
