So I wanted to share something which happened a few days ago:
I have been mindfully practicing The Law of Attraction since the New Year.
What is it?
In the New Thought philosophy, the law of attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts people can bring positive or negative experiences into their life.
The book “The Secret” was all the craze when it was launched many years ago – I missed out on that craze and remembered dismissing it.
The idea behind it is:
Thought becomes things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand. What you feel is what you will attract.
Nonsense!! Or so I thought 😂
By fate I was touched by it. I was in a bookshop and the sequel to The Secret, called The Power was on sale. As someone who is usually open and love a bargain, I bought it.
Subsequently, I reconnected with a dead friend whom I have not seen in ages. Coincidentally, he was a believer too and passed me the movie!
In the short movie someone said, “Think about something unusual. If it happens then you know it’s working.”
“It could be as simple as thinking about a long lost friend you want to speak to – that person will appear in your life”
For me, I chose to see a dark red orchid.
Now, this was before I even knew that such a thing existed. I just imagined the colour because I like it!
This is what normally comes to mind when one mentions the flower.
I’ve seen white or purple orchids, but never dark red ones.
nd guess what I saw in less than a month?
Hahaha!!! A dark red orchid!!!! A fake one nonetheless but it blew my mind!
Now, I am at a point of my life where I am pretty happy and contented.
I have a loving family, loving husband, a pretty cooperative baby, a nice house to live in, financially stable…
I used to think “Don’t expect too much, hence you won’t be disappointed”.
But then realised that this is a very limiting way of thinking.
My life is good, but I know that it will be 100% better after this!
Till next time! xoxo
