For those of you who have been following me for a while know how much I love the Law of Attraction and I'm very aware when it's working in my favor. Today was one of those moments that just made me smile and I wanted to share it with you. It may seem small...but it's significant.
I have some mentors that have come into my life that I look up to so much and have taught me so much just in the last couple of months. I was writing a comment to one of them this morning just sharing my appreciation for her and told her that it's going to go on my goal board to meet her one day. I was just filled with gratitude and appreciation in that moment.
Not five minutes after I wrote her... I received an email from one of my readers that I don't know. I wanted to share it with you because what you put out into this world, will come back to you when you least expect it.
I feel like we would be the best of friends. I love your personality and your outlook on life. I am about to start the Whole30 again and hope to make it through the whole 30 days this time.
I love the recipes that you have posted and have tried them. Will you ever do a cookbook one day? I'm so nervous about starting my Whole30. I have been so unhealthy for so long, that I'm not sure where to start, but I know I need to do something.
Wish me luck and I hope to meet you one day just because your posts bring a smile to my face and you are so down to earth.
Thanks for taking the time to read my email."
I won't share her name of course to keep her anonymous to my other readers, but do you recognize what happened there? We never know who we are inspiring. I truly believe that SHE will have good come back to her too when she least expects it.
It's hard to call yourself an expert at something. But guess what? We are ALL an expert at something, so we have to get over that. We all have something we can help others with. Everyone is at different levels on their journey.
The biggest thing I hope you take away from this.... Don't ever GIVE with an expectation of something in return. When you GIVE with genuine love in your heart, it will come back to you tenfold in unexpected ways. We all WANT things in our life. Start GIVING what you want, ithout expectation, and it will just come back to you;)
Bonus tip: When we are feeling "lack" in our life, it is in our nature to hold on to what we do have with all of our might. This is actually the times when we need to GIVE MORE. I know it's hard to do sometimes, but give it a try and see what comes back to you. It's just how flow works.
I always chuckle a bit when I hear someone say, "I don't believe in the Law of Attraction". It doesn't really matter if you believe in it, it's still happening every moment. It's as much of a law as gravity but people have a tougher time accepting it because it's not as obvious to us as our feet on the ground. It doesn't mean it's not true. Some people give up because things aren't manifesting quickly enough for them.
The coolest part of what happened this morning, was how QUICKLY it happened for me. When we are in a place of resistance, we cannot receive. When we release resistance, things will flow to us easily. The easiest way to get into that place of non-resistance, is through the feeling of appreciation and gratitude.
I encourage you to read my blog post on The Law of Attraction, especially if this is something that is intriguing to you, but you don't quite understand how it works yet. I try to simplify it in that blog post, because it can be a pretty deep subject. Enjoy! ...and go give today, and everyday, and see what starts coming back to you.
