I recently came across a blog post written by the author and life coach Martha Beck. (Her most well known book is Finding Your Own North Star.)
While she wasn’t directly referring to the law of attraction, she wrote about a realization she had when it came to attracting things in her life.
I found what she wrote quite powerful:
The most striking thing I’ve realized is that the thought of “magnetizing,” or drawing things toward me, contains the assumption that what I want is “out there” in the world and I have to go find it. It creates a feeling of distance and inaccessibility. When I release all attachment and all anxiety, I notice that the things I want feel present and inevitable, as real as humidity in summer air.
When the temperature of a day reaches the dew point, the moisture in the air, which is invisible to the eye, suddenly appears everywhere. It was always there; it just needed a certain temperature to become visible. Similarly, everything we need to make us happy is waiting for the “temperature” of our inner life to create the dew point where it can become material form. The dew point temperature of all your desires is a feeling of normalcy. It is not high excitement, nor grasping, nor yearning. All of those emotions contain anxiety and attachment — try them right now, you’ll see.
To give you an example of what this feels like, think about the feeling you have watching a beautiful sunrise. You may experience awe and intense gratitude, but you will not be thunderstruck, amazed or hysterical. A sunrise is glorious, but it is normal. We aren’t attached to the sun continuing to shine because we are sure it will. If you can feel that way about the arrival of your soul mate or the success of your business, my recent experience convinces me it will appear around you like dew. Everything you want is there right now, waiting to become visible.
This is the part that really spoke to me:
Similarly, everything we need to make us happy is waiting for the “temperature” of our inner life to create the dew point where it can become material form. The dew point temperature of all your desires is a feeling of normalcy.
We are programmed to believe everything we want comes with struggle and a chase. What would happen if you believed everything you wanted was a normal, expected, and consistent part of your life? It’s completely normal for money to come in unexpected ways. It’s normal for you to find great bargains on the things you want to buy. It’s normal for people to give you things for free. It’s normal for you to have enough to take care of your needs and still have enough to give away money to other people.
Letting go of the rollercoaster of emotions and accepting your dreams as being normal will bring about a great sense of peace and relief that, honestly, will feel better than having the money (or material things) in your life. And the crazy thing is, once you tap into that feeling of peace and can hold on to it, the things you want will come to you that much faster.
