WHY DOES IT TAKE ACTION?
Good day and I hope you are having a blast this week. Today I am going to tackle the question “if the source and all this law of attraction stuff is powerful and precise, why do I have to take action? I mean if I am the only creature that can control my thoughts then I should be rewarded by thinking I want $10 million and get it in the bank the next minute right?” Not quite. Follow me here for a second.
The answer is because the universe wants to make sure you want what you want, and more importantly, you can handle it. When you are asking for $ 10 million, can you handle it? Most likely you will say yes, and I am sure you may think you can. The reality is that with vast amount of wealth comes vast amount of responsibility. If you have a hard time balancing your checkbook or your credit card bills on a $50k salary can you imagine the mess you can get yourself into with ten million dollars?
The action (Inspired action like Dr. Joe Vitale puts it) or the journey (as Abraham-Hicks teachings explain it), prepares you for the reward, so you do not blow it, or worse yet hurt yourself or others. Let’s stick with the money example because that seems to be a big hiccup for most people. Doing your passion and visualizing a great wealth starts the sequences of opportunities that will lead you to that end, however if you quit at the first sign of challenges, you are signaling the Source that you are not ready. Challenges get bigger as our wealth grows. Handling the challenges along the way are the training steps for the skill set needed to handle the greater challenges. If your family life is filled with chaos now, you may be saying well A.J. if I had $10 million then I could spend more time with my family. I am here to tell you in 99% of the cases that is not true. You will have more toys, more “suddenly found friends”, more work to increase the chaos within your family.
In a previous post I mentioned if you are not in harmony in every aspect of your life the financial aspect will not magically fix it self. Abraham-Hicks teaches us that our natural state is Joy. Joy does not just come as a result of a big pay check. That is why there is so much emphasis on visualizing the things you want by having the wealth and not just the dollar amount. If you want to have more free time to spend with your family visualize that, and work at the opportunities that present themselves to spend time with your family and enjoy it. Really enjoy it. You are totally sabotaging yourself if you are thinking the millions of dollars will help your family life get better. Remember the “HOW” is not your job, and in essence you are limiting your options when you try to tell the Source that they way to your happiness is having ten million dollars. You are trying to do the job of the Source. The source is unlimited, your perspective is very limited.
Men specially have a big issue with this when trying to use The Law of Attraction. We are so used to having to come up with the exact solution that we tend to get carried away here. Taking a chill pill here is the key. Writing down why it is you want something like 10 million dollars in details may and will help you clarify the reasons behind your initial desire. Remember clarity is the key to getting what you want. You may think you know ($10 million) what you want, but in reality you may just want to have extra time to play, exercise, spend time with the kids, etc. Only concentrate on the final results of what you want. It can even be charity. You may want to give it all away. Again why do you want that charity to have the money? Visualize and focus on the end result you want for the charity and amazing things will happen.
