Universal laws in conflict?
I read a blogpost the other day concerning how some people don’t succeed using the law of attraction. To some extent, I’d put myself among these people. I intend to use this blogpost to discuss the relation between the LOA and what is referred to as a life contract.
I have, for as long as I can remember, believed in re-incarnation. I believe, for example, that we live many lives together with different people. I am absolutely certain that I have lived numerous lives with my mother, and I also believe we will have to live several more lives together in order to set that which is broken between us.
In light of this, I also believe that inbetween lives, we do merge into a sort of conciousness. Supersoul, in lack of better word (but I really don’t like it). Once we’re ready to break free and enter a life in physical form again, we decide on what we are going to learn. We may not decide on the exact shape, but we give ourselves the circumstances in which we can learn this or that. Our life lesson will be the general idea of our life. If you compare it to a job, it’s the job description. It is what gives the job – or life, in this case, a frame to work within.
I enjoy the idea of being limitless, but I also know that I prefer having a framework to relate to. It gives some kind of main goal, a direction to work towards.
And I like that.
And in that sense, I’d say it is something like this.
What your soul decided to learn through the journey of this specific lifetime. This includes the circumstances in which you were borne, the parents and immidiate family you have, any event that gives you the opportunity to learn this life lesson.
The means through which you can control your journey through this life. And, thinking of myself and what I believe is my life lesson, I’d say that to succeed in using the LOA, it may be wise to focus on learning your life lesson in the most pleasant way you can think of.
For me personally, I believe that my life contract has very much to do with learning how to be ME. To find a shape and to stay strong within it. Not to let anyone else dictate who I am, who I should be, et cetera. When I look back at the life I’ve led so far, this is what strikes me as the strongest lesson to be learned.
But then, another lesson – which I think is intertwined in the Me-issue, is to also learn how to create and maintain healthy relationships. Now, since I am not particularily traditional, my sense of a healthy relationship may differ from yours (and I am quite certain that it does, actually), but different doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy. 🙂
I could go on forever with details on these two issues that I believe are parts of my life contract, but it’d take a billion lifetimes and none of us have that much time on our hands.
However; I find this very interesting and I am going to take it into serious consideration when it comes to my creating through the law of attraction.
So what does this mean for my future manifesting?
Well. I suppose I should focus on things that has to do with my person rather than… stuff. My thoughts line up to a point where I think that if I focus on myself primarily, with the strong intention of my personal growth, all the rest will come with ease.
And in all honesty, for a number of years my primary personal goal has been to be the best version of myself that I can be, all categories. And I actually do believe that I am getting there. For the first time in my life, I can say out loud that I am a good person. I am good. I am kind, decent, loving and generous.
Can I improve? Oh, bloody hell, yes. There are still tons of issues of various kinds that needs to be dealt with. But I actually do feel that I am on the way of becoming a person I am loving to be.
That’s quite something, if you ask me.
