If you are familiar with the law of attraction you’ve most likely heard it has to do with manifesting wealth into your life. If you think it, you create it, so think positive. I have been familiar with the law of attraction, creating vision boards and all that stuff. I believe in it, I believe if you have an attitude of gratitude that life can feel better, even get better! During this time of a pandemic and now protesting and riots I am seeing many people I know forget the law of attraction. I see a lot of hatred, judgement and shame out on social media. We can’t fight hatred and injustice with hatred or shame. This time, particularly with the protesting and riots around racial inequity, it is about personal accountability. If we buy into the fact that changing the way we think can change our lives, then we must also realize that what is playing out all around us, we had a hand in creating! Yes, I just said we are personally accountable for what is happening. No, that is not meant to shame or blame. It is about being hyper aware of our thoughts, feelings, triggers and reactions. We are a nation with a lot of racial and gender programing, it is out there whether staring us in the face or hidden under the surface. If you hear “Black lives Matter” and get upset because “All lives Matter” there might be some hidden biases. These biases are so subtle yet they can be impacting our schools, cities and country. Whenever we talk about the current situation as a family I encourage my kids to be aware of the thoughts they have around believing one person is better than another, ever. When we begin to have beliefs around someones value we set the Law of Attraction in motion to create inequity. The Law of Attraction isn’t just about manifesting a bigger house, successful career or loads of money into our life, it is about attracting what we invest our emotional energy into. When you feel something intensely, think about it with great passion the ball gets moving and builds momentum quickly. When we understand how incredibly powerful we are we can move mountains, or end inequality. It really is quite simple, focus on what you want rather than what your don’t want. Holding ourselves personally accountable for our thoughts is very empowering. When I find my mind taking me down a path that doesn’t serve me I simply say ” I see you, now let’s go a different direction”. No shame, no guilt. It is a new habit and may take time. I allow myself to stumble, it is ok, I am human. The voice that has the biggest impact on us is the one in our head. When we learn to take the lead our minds will learn to follow and great change will occur.
