Law of Attraction: Is Your Guilt Your Stumbling Block?

The universal Law of Attraction ...
Is it possible to attract whatever we would like into our life?

Many may or may not have heard of the Law of Attraction. But it has existed in our midst for ages, back to the time of Jesus Christ. It has been referred to in so many different ways throughout our life, but it has no doubt shown up. Here's a few ways that we may have noticed about it ...

1. What you sow you reap.
2. What you put out you get back.
3. Like attracts like
4. Law of supply and demand
5. What comes around goes around.
6. "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7
7. Ralph Waldo Emerson called it the "Law of Compensation"

What can we understand from all these? It means that when we focus upon what we WANT in our life, we will attract it and when we focus upon what we DON'T WANT to create in our life, we will attract that too. Simply said, we are just like a magnet.

So, if we focus on the negative aspects of anything, or focus on what we do not have, we will create more of what we do not have. This is self-sabotage!

There have been plenty of complaints and questions about why the Law of Attraction “isn’t working” or “doesn’t work” or even “backfires”. The Law of Attraction does work and it works all the time. The problem is ourselves!

Most of us have been pre-conditioned through our upbringing to have so much resistance and so many levels of negative feelings that our actual focus tends to be on our lack of worthiness, belief that we don’t deserve abundance, or anxiety about success in general. Strong feelings of guilt and shame can get in the way of the Law of Attraction working in our favour, because the Law of Attraction hears the vibration through our feelings.

When we feel guilty over something we did or said, or feel ashamed or regret, we will not feel deserving of success or abundance in our life, no matter what people say or offer us. These feelings are often deep within, and are far more powerful that any “positive thinking” or vision boards. These negative feelings are the culprit and will eventually win out. Law of Attraction is in fact working because we are getting what we are focused on. In these cases, we are attracting the louder, more active vibration, and it is often a feeling of guilt, shame or lack of worthiness.

When we feel guilty about something we did or said, we tend to punish ourselves in seemingly unrelated areas of our lives. Being in a constant state of guilt will not help either ourselves or the person we have offended! It is one of the most prominent feelings underlying the self-sabotage behavior and one of the least suspected emotions that is responsible for blocking success and abundance. Self-sabotage is by far, one of the biggest complaints and areas identified for improvement towards our efforts to attract abundance.

So, if you are one of those who are complaining about why the Law of Attraction is not working for you, it is time to identify and shortlist any underlying guilts you may be harbouring. These feelings may not be overwhelming in your consciousness. But unless they are neutralized and cleared, they will remain as the stumbling blocks to receiving abundance. Until then, there will be no room for the positive manifestations.

yes Wenny I believe in what you have wrote :)

It's true Amelia. Coz like me, I know I still carry quite a number of guilts with me, workwise and some personal. That's why I have yet to manifest my ultimate desire ... but I working hard on it. Along the way, I get to appreciate the little little abundance, some unexpectedly.
