The next time you are confronted with a condition or circumstance you judge to be problematical, express your immediate gratitude not only for the solution but for the problem itself. By so doing, you instantly change your perspective on it, and your attitude about it.
~Neale Donald Walsch
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” ~Dalai Lama
Have a wonderfully, blessed day!
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?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Welcome to the new Shrine of Hecate Blog.
I have been in the process of relocating my blogs to wordpress, because we have outgrown Blogger, and this platform can grow with us, as we expand together.
This will be the new location for the blog formally known as http://hecates-corner.blogspot.com .
This new Shrine of Hecate blog will contain regular updates about Shrine activities, teachings related to Witchcraft, Wicca, The Correllian Nativist Tradition (to which the Shrine belongs to), as well as posts that are linked to the Pagan Blog Projects 2014, and at least three times weekly a Daily Prompt post.
To keep an archive of our former posts, I will keep the blogspot blog open, but no longer active.
Wishing you all the best 2014 you can hope for!
