Law of Attraction

Here's a bit of irony. After writing the latest blog post and telling various people about the benefits of acupuncture in quickly relieving a stiff neck, I woke up two days ago to a stiff neck of my own. Is it coincidence?

Most of us have heard about the Law of Attraction by now. In a nutshell, the Law of Attraction states that we draw into our lives what we focus our energy on. Then is it really coincidental that I should wake up with a stiff neck right after devoting a fair share of time and energy thinking and writing about it? In my mind, it was just another piece of evidence that Law of Attraction is as reliable as the Law of Gravity. Gravity doesn't work sometimes and not others. If you throw a ball up into the air, it will always - always - fall back down. So with the Law of Attraction. Whatever thoughts you dwell on and give energy to will always have an effect on what shows up in your life!

Sometimes not the desired effect, mind you, but that is where focused intention comes in. By intentionally directing our thoughts and aligning them with our desires, we can manifest just about anything we want into our lives! Now that's not to say you will wake up to a shiny new Ferrari tomorrow if you think about one today (though it's not impossible!). But practice makes perfect, and I highly encourage you to take inventory of your thoughts.

What kind of thoughts run through your mind on a daily basis? Are they negative? Critical? Self-defeating? If so, notice them, discard them, and replace them with positive thoughts. You'll be amazed at how quickly this can produce a turnaround in your mood and the way you feel! Spend more time thinking constructive, feel-good thoughts, and more good things will show up in your life!

As to my stiff neck, luckily I knew just what to do, and it vanished very quickly. More than a nuisance, I considered it a fun little reminder from the universe. A reminder of just how powerful our thoughts can be!
