Law of Attraction
This is the whole "Secret" phenomenon. Something I think most people inherently know anyway, but it makes it seem easier somehow. We all know people who are negative about everything and conversations with those people always go in the same direction. We spend lots of time hearing them wonder aloud why these things always happen to them. It is often perfectly clear to the rest of us.
That's all the Secret is. It's focusing on the positive power of attraction, which is so easily lost in the negative. It seems to be human nature to focus on negative energy. We are glued to CNN and coverage of the war and Anna Nicole Smith and how awful it all is. How many positive stories are covered? They are rare indeed. So I will give the movie that. It helps us pay attention to the positive and gives us concrete ways to do it. It also has been able to reach a huge number of people. That can only be good. Our world certainly needs something like that right about now.
What cracks me up about the Secret is how ancient these ideas are. Again, this is stuff we all know, we've just managed to forget~ I include myself here. This is the essence of ancient religions. I liken it to creating your own Karma, or Reaping what you sow, with more intention.
So I had an amazing experience regarding this LoA. I was on MDC complaining about how people want me to "do" something other than be a mom and how I didn't want to do that. One of the members reminded me that others are merely reflecting back to me what I believe to be true in myself. That was a bit of a revelation for me. (I know these things are painfully obvious to others, but they are so hard to see in ourselves) I realized I really did want to do what I thought others wanted me to do. And within one day, the opportunity fell into my lap. I discovered the British Institute of Homeopathy has a complete 3 year homeopathy course, at the end of which I can take the CHC exam and be an actual, legitimate, professional homeopath. This degree requires NO travel. This piece is important because the reason I could never see myself getting the degree is that all of the schools are very far away and require me to be present on many occasions for seminars and tests and so forth. The icing on the cake is that the very day I discovered this, our tax refund was deposited into our account and it is enough that I can pay for this! It will also fit quite nicely in the three year gap I am looking for before inviting the next baby in.
I am so excited that I can't sleep! I was awake much of last night thinking about how wonderful this is. I will start my studies next week and I can not WAIT. Homeopathy speaks to me like nothing else. I am certain this is the direction my life is meant to go in.
