When people first learn about the Law of Attraction and the power they have to attract what they want, they often expect instant results. And rarely get them.
Not because the universe can’t deliver miracles. But because deliberate creation involves a learning curve.
Let’s say you’re so totally done with cheapskate clients who take you for granted. Your new desire is to work with customers who appreciate you, respect you, and pay you well. When you ask, it’s given: the universe says yes immediately.
The next steps are up to you.
We live in a a universe of contrasts – what we don’t want gives birth to what we do want. Because of contrast, your experience with wrong customers launched a new desire for the right ones.
But at the time you “launched your new rocket of desire” (as Abraham-Hicks puts it), you are still
vibrationally close to what you no longer want. And that’s totally normal. However…
Because very few of us appreciate the value of contrast, we want to escape it as fast as we can. We want to be rid of what we don’t like. Right now.
Ever noticed that whatever you want to be rid of just sticks to you longer?
Using mental force to resist reality won’t work and isn’t necessary. Instead, when you launch a new desire, take time to look for the gift contrast gave you.
Example: those customers who took advantage of you helped you realize that you’re no longer willing to accept poor treatment.
Realizations of what we’re no longer willing to accept propel us forward in life. (Think back on major turning points in your life and you will see how realizations transform you.)
We use our power to attract efficiently when we mentally thank the circumstance that triggered the contrast that led to our realization.
Maybe we call them “realizations” because they show us what we now want to make real.
Thank those customers for the realization they brought you to. When you can feel appreciation, that’s your sign: you truly have let go of the old.
Then change comes quickly.
If you still hang around rehashing what you don’t want, grumbling about how you’re no longer willing to put up with being treated badly, remembering and reactivating what caused you to get to upset, then you keep yourself stuck where you’ve always been.
This is mis-using your power to attract. All you do is attract more of what you don’t want.
So: do you really have the power to attract differently? Absolutely! By divine right we always have the power to change our vibration and, in doing so, change what we attract.
Just let go of the idea that your path to receiving depends on other people changing.
We receive because an abundant, unlimited universe is able to give us whatever we can conceive and believe. It has nothing to do with them. It has only to do with our alignment with spirit.
If you want things to change quickly for you, get into alignment. That’s using your power to attract.
Here’s what getting into alignment looks like:
1- Notice your new realization
2- Appreciate the contrast that led you to it
3- Look for signs that what you now prefer is on the way (because the universe has already said yes).
When you step into alignment, you naturally become a powerful attractor of what you want. You also feel terrific because alignment, or harmony with the divine, is your natural state.
Those disrespectful, cheapskate customers are either quickly replaced – or they show up miraculously changed: appreciative, generous and a vibrational match to the new you.
