DON’T PUT YOUR HIGH BEAMS ON
Good day and I hope you are having a great day. As I was driving in the desert this week, occasionally I was in front of a car who had forgotten to lower their high beams. It was very distracting, and irritating at first and as time went on, it became intolerable and I either had to change lanes or pass other cars just to get out of their presence.
This made me think about what I teach, what I study, and how I relate to people. Even light in the darkness can cause people to withdraw, and not want to associate with us. This is so true when I was a new teacher of The Law of Attraction (LOA). I was so excited to “shine” the proverbial “light” on everyone I met. Just like the high beams though, there usually were two different reactions. If they were at the same vibration, i.e. ready for the knowledge, my “high beams” would light the darkness in our path since we were side by side. We both benefited. However, when the person was not ready, I can see how I was like a car with their high beams in the rear-view mirror annoying the crap out of them. That never accomplished anything and I may have even pushed them away from the LOA.
When I was younger in U.C.L.A. I used to feel this way with people who wanted to share their religious beliefs with me on campus. From their point of view, they wanted to share the “light”, and I was closed minded, or comfortable with my own beliefs and just felt irritated so the message was not received. I am happy to say I am more open minded and exhibit more grace now to all beliefs.
The point I am stressing here is the need for care and caution. We deliberate creators are very excited about what we know is possible for all human beings. Not everyone thought is ready for it on our schedule. It is very much like mentorship. Care needs to be applied in sharing the knowledge because, being human, I felt bad when after spending an hour explaining LOA in detail, the other person looked like a deer in the headlights or would rather talk about rearranging their socks drawer. I would take it personally and that would bring me down. It would take me days to get over it. I would wonder what “I was doing wrong?”, “why could I not convey this magical ability to people and get them as excited as I was?”. I have realized that mentors are approached by students in most cases and not the other way around. It was not personal. They were just not ready for the information.
It is a UNIVERSAL LAW and that is why the same applied to spirituality and LOA. I find sharing the 40,000 foot view with people I think are ready is the good start. This way I would not overwhelm them and turn them off from the beginning. I would let the basics sink in and when they are ready, they would approach me for more. This is the reason why this blog is so passive. I only market it on my Twitter about 5 times per week and on my LOA Facebook page once per week. Whomever is on the right receiving vibration will get attracted to the right posts, at the right time. Whomever needs the books and coaching will contact me at the right time. It is really a very cool way to work. And it is THE LAW.
