My first personal (open) experiment was to attract a part time charity role into my life. This was the most logical step for me to move onto, using my skills to help my passion of animal welfare. I have heard back from the specific charity I was intending attract and it was not so good news. So does that mean Law of Attraction didn’t work for me in this case? Actually it was a bit more complex than that.
I used the tools and techniques I have learned over the years to set a clear intend (via the ASK, BELIEVE and RECEIVE process) as well as visualisation techniques to imagine what it would be like to have got the role. I imagined sitting in the board room talking about animal welfare issues and interacting with other trustees of the charity. At times, I was convinced that I receive this particular role as I can really see myself actually doing the role. But there were times when my inner voice was throwing out doubts; ‘since I have declared it so publically, what happens if it doesn’t work out?!’; ‘can I really spend the time to do this role this year?!’; ‘what about the time I spend with my daughter, will this be affected?!.
If I clearly self-analyse, then it was deeper emotional triggers such as fear and confusion, that was getting in the way of my belief of getting this role. Question is how do I get around these emotional triggers or more to the point, do I really want to get over these emotional triggers? Perhaps they are trying to tell me something; maybe my heart is really not into it, at least for the moment, until my daughter grows up a bit more.
So perhaps going back to my example about exams, do I give up or do I persist? So again the voice in my head is telling me, I must persist and when the time is right, and the role is right, it will come to me!
