4 Tips For Overcoming Difficult Times (Law of Attraction)

4 Tips On Overcoming Difficult Times - Law of Attraction

As a practitioner of Law of Attraction, we are told that we attract all of  our situations, and will continue to attract the same  situations if we approach life the same way we have before. Negative will attract negative, and positive will attract positive.

During times when our lives seems out of control, and we wobble from that knowing, we need to remind herself, that we HAVE to stay on track, otherwise our situations will not improve.

 

But how to do that, when everything feels like it is falling apart?

 

  1. Rest in the knowing it is only temporary. No situation lasts forever, and even if at this moment and time, you do not feel like there is an end in sight, remind yourself of times when other situations that where not in your favor eventually ended. There is relief in knowing that trouble is always temporary.
  2. Distract yourself. Deal only with the situation when you really have to, do not wallow in it, or rehash it in conversation with others. Take the actions you need to take, and then do something you love – may it be listen to music, read a few pages of your favorite book, create some form of art, or watch a short comedy. Allow yourself to be completely emerged by that moment of distraction, and acknowledge how good it felt, before you go back to dealing with the issues at hand.
  3. Know that growth requires learning from diverse situations. How to deal with stressful situations is an important lesson to learn, and once you master staying mostly positive even when obstacles come your way, these obstacles will appear less and less in your life. Be grateful for the lesson you learned, and look at the little bits of good that came out of the situation, may it be that you became more resourceful, or that you did not waiver from your path, despite everything.
  4. Be grateful. The most important and effective technique for Law of Attraction is gratitude. Finding gratitude in every situation is always possible, because there is always something to be grateful for. A hug, a breeze, the sound of birds, a warm day, your food, the potential and your ability for learning, are just some examples. If you are really looking for something to be grateful for, you will find it in EVERY situation.

 

It is entirely possible to stay at least mostly positive during the most stressful times. Your outlook will not only make it easier for you to overcome the present situation, but it will also put you in the better frame of mind to attract a more positive life from here on out. The less these situations rock you, the less they will appear, and you are on your way to a more balanced and comfortable life.

 

Happy co-creating

The Not So Bright Side of Life – Surviving Childhood Abuse

I am a survivor of child abuse.

I know I usually write something uplifting in this blog, but over the last few days I was forced to confront a situation that made me think back to a time, I do not want to recall. You see, my abuser has passed last year, and now his enabler decides that she needs me in her time of sickness. I am supposed to be the good little daughter, whom stands by her side.

But I am not that.

I feel like screaming into the empty space around me, screaming at her how dare she asks for me to help her? Where was she when I needed her? Where was her protection, the fearlessness that I feel when I look at my children, the willingness to die for them, if anyone would dare to do them harm?

Guilt –  is a weapon that is used by many abusers and their enablers to remain in control. Because that is what abuse is about, control, a need to show power over someone that is younger and vonurable. Guilting the victim into doing what they need them to do, to satisfy their needs. In their mind it is always about them.

What she does not count on are two things:

I am no longer a child and I am no longer a victim.

I am a survivor, a mother, a successful business woman, a writer, a motivator, a healer, a wife, and a daughter-in-law. I am free and I am stronger because of what I survived.

To this day, my husband, the champion of my life, my rescuer, and constant believer in me, does not know how much I actually went through. He will never know. I will never tell. And the details do no longer matter. Because they have lost its power.

So, why am I writing this? Because I feel the need for closure, a public statement of saying Goodbye to a family I no longer can have in my life, and a turn toward those who need me instead. It is a good bye to a woman who instead of protecting me, was jealous of the attention “her” man gave me. Not an attention any little girl wants.

Forgiving is not about letting the abusers and their helpers win, it is about acknowledging what happened, saying your piece and moving on, away, without anymore ties to that past. It is allowing yourself and them to move on, without each other, without any more power exchange.

Instead of screaming, I am letting go, I am allowing her to find her piece, but not with me, without me. I can live with my choice. She needs to learn to live with hers. And die with it.

Don’t Shoot The Messenger

Don't Shoot The Messenger

As I work more and more with Law of Attraction and Gratitude, I have come to the conclusion that I have to learn one very important lesson:

Be aware of the message, while not judging the messenger.

Often I asked for answers to questions, that I am stuck on, and when the Universe answers, it does not always answer through a person whom I particularly enjoy, or in a package I totally agree with. For example, I have been reading a book on promoting one’s writing, and the book ended up being a shameless plug of the Author’s own services and companies. It pissed me off at first, so much so, that I did not want to look at the fact that some of what she is writing are actually worthwhile tips. But than I remembered to asked:

Does it really matter what her motives where, or if she actually been as successful as she claimed (which a quick Google search proofed to be wrong), if what she is saying has partially merit?

No, it does not, because I can take from that book or from any other message I receive the parts that I need, and be grateful for them, rather than wallow in the fact, that the person who wrote it, or brought it to me, does not live up to my standards. That is my problem, not theirs, and that judgment will only take me away from the potential gain – for one, the gain of insight and secondly, the opportunity to be grateful.

My responds will determine what I can do with whatever I have been given. By not “shooting the messenger”, I can actually focus on the message, and learn, grow and use the principles that I have dedicated my life to studying, and practicing.

Nervous Excitement – A Daily Prompt Post

Wedding Day – A Haiku

nervous excitement
her big day approaching fast
flowers in her hair

 

Today we where asked the following from Daily Prompt:

It’s the night before an important event: a big exam, a major presentation, your wedding. How do you calm your nerves in preparation for the big day?

That depends on what the occasion is. Would you really want to miss the part of the tingling, nervous butterflies that come with good news, such as when you are about to get married, or go on the trip of a lifetime, or move into the house of your dreams?

I think not! This excitement is not something to mask or get over, but to savor. After all it is a milestone that often is only reached after time and energy spend, after careful planning, after many actions that brought you to the point, right before the realization of a dream.

Savoring and relishing in that moment of being at the brink of greatness – in which ever form it expresses itself – is a blessings. It is a chance to be grateful for having made it this far, and a chance to hope for many more moments in your life, just like it it.

What is your approach to a big, important event? What do you think about the nervous excitement that comes with it, and how do you deal with it?

Here is what others wrote on the subject today:

Germanic Goddess Sunna

Contemplating Sunna – The Germanic Goddess of the SunAs I am contemplating the wheel of the year and Germanic Paganism/Folk Magick, I came across an interesting Goddess whom I want to connect with further.

Sunna – the Germanic Goddess of the Sun – whom is known in the Nordic pantheon as Sol, is an interesting character, who’s symbolism has been distorted (as it has with many old-germanic symbols) to be tied to the Nazi regime.
As a healer, bright and positive, she comes across as a positive, easy to approach Goddess to me personally. Maybe it is because I have been always drawn to warmer climates – I am constantly cold. In that concept and as a fellow healer, I consider warmth greatly healing and rather bright as I visualize it occurring.In mythology Sunna drives a chariot across the sky every day, being pulled by two horses. Allsvinn – who’s name translates to “very fast” –  and Arvak – meaning “Early Rising” pull the Goddess across the heavens as they are persuit by the Wolf Skoll. Myths declare that at times he catches up with them, taking a bit out of the Sun, creating an eclips.

Her symbol – the “Sonnenrad” or sun-wheel – has been found as decoration pieces in many archaeological sites throughout parts of the German state Schleswig Holstein, and is now a part of the city symbol of the town Suederbrarup.


How to connect with Sunna

Time of the Year: Midsummer to Mabon

Time of the Day: Sunrise

Symbols: The sun-wheel, any image of the sun, candles, bonfires

Colors: Bright Yellow, Orange, Fire red

Foods:  any type of berries (traditional), citrus fruit (non-tradition)

Herbs:  rosemary, daisy, marigold, butter cup, angelica

Prayer to Sunna

Goddess of the Sun
so brightly shinning
your warmth and healing eases our days

Hail to you, dear Lady
may your firy powers
lead us to a future bright
full of abundance and hope
now and forever more.

I am beginning to understand, that most importantly, I have to be kind to myself.

I am beginning to understand, that everyone else is scared to.

I am beginning to understand, that I can ease someone else’s fears quite easily with kindness.

I am beginning to understand, that I am more powerful, than I thought possible.

I am beginning to understand, that I can really have it all.

I am beginning to understand, how wonderful this complex world really is.

I am beginning to understand.

 

 

Meaning Of Struggle

Do you believe in your dreams? Are you willing to fail for your dreams, so you can succeed?

 

Every moment, every breath, every struggle has a meaning. What the meaning is, is entirely up to you. You assign the responds, the direction. It only takes a minor shift to change your life in a more profound way, then you can imagine at this very moment.

Choose wisely.

From A Point Of Love

happysoul

 

Share and act from a point of love. May this love stem from  empathy, compassion, the desire to share a burden of another, or the need to uplift. If it’s origin is love, the truth in your action will shine a bright light upon it, more powerful then the mere act, and bind together with the acts of others with the same intend. This combined intend of love moves mountains, creates worlds, changes everything.

Have a wonderful day!

How Battles Are Won

 

file1371271569340

Battles are won, not by those inactively waiting for change, but by those who become agents of change. Those who use their voice in ways their situation allows and enables them, via platforms that are ever changing.

If you reach one, or a million, the amount is less important then the choice to speak, when others choose silence. It only takes one to make a difference.

Hindu Prayer Interrupted In Senate By Christians

This made me really sad yesterday, as I saw it the first time. Are we really in this state of mind, that we can not allow another to pray in the way they choose to? What do you think?

The WordPress C(h)ronicle

Christian activists briefly disrupted a Hindu invocation in the U.S Senate on Thursday, marring a historic first for the chamber and showing that fundamentalism is present and shouting in the U.S too.
