“The law of attraction is no “secret” and it is profoundly misinterpreted. Sometimes we attract exactly what we need to grow, and sometimes a sociopath walks through the door, one who can fool anyone. Too many people stay in bad situations because they believe they have ‘attracted’ a necessary reflection. Sometimes this is true, but sometimes it is not. There is such thing as needless suffering, and misguided manifestation. We want to go where we grow, and not everything that comes into our life is of value.” Jeff Brown
This was on Jeff Brown’s Facebook wall today and it was exactly what I have been thinking since I got robbed yesterday. Yes, I left the house for an hour and a half and when I got home the window in my front door was smashed and the door was unlocked. After 4 police officers search my house to make sure there wasn’t anyone still in it, I came in and looked around and thought nothing was taken because all of my electronic gadgets were still in their places. After they left I remembered the money that I had hidden in my room. Yes indeed, when I went to find it the place where it was kept was empty. $400 now belonged to someone else. It was suspicious to me that who ever it was that broke into my home bypassed everything and went write to the hiding place and took my money. I suspect, but can prove that it was my cleaning service.
In the not so distant past I would have launched into a period of self-reflection to determine what it was in me that attracted this into my life. That is what a good student of the Law of Attraction does. For some reason this time was different. I didn’t even venture down that path of micro-analysis. Trust me I am a master at self-reflection. It felt ridiculous that I would attract something like this into my life, and maybe I am just avoiding something, but I think it is important that I was able to stop the analysis long enough to decide that not everything is a result of our thinking!
I think sometimes those of us who are into self-reflection and growing consciously over analyze things, trying to understand why we would manifest certain things that don’t feel right. Nothing in my thinking was inviting someone to come into my home, violate my space and steal from me.
I decided I would not give up power to a dishonest person and be afraid to be in my own home or afraid to leave it because some unwanted person might come in. I am going to continue to trust that most people are honest and trust worthy, that the world is a good place and I am safe in it. I am also keenly aware that there are a lot of people, my kids, my neighbors, my family and friends who have my back!
Then came the turn-around. Someone in a thread on my Facebook page pointed out that I didn’t manifest anything negative but in fact had manifested safety by not being home when they broke in. I manifested protection for my cat who was home alone and unharmed during the break in. Often when something so strongly negative happens it is hard to see the other side of the issue.
I think it is important not to micro-analyze because it can lead down a path that we don’t want to go and shift our energy toward creating something we don’t want. Micro-analyzing take precious energy away from our focus and interrupts manifestation. I believe if something manifests that isn’t something we wanted to create and a pattern is not immediately apparent we should use our energy to shift our focus back to those things we want to manifest.
Some situations are just situations that have little value unless we put value on to it. Maybe all thoughts don’t become things and all things that manifest are not the result of our thinking. Our mastery is to determine which is which.
