I stuff up the law of attraction all the time
Oh by asking for something
Feeling how amazing it would be to receive it
Visualise myself receiving it
And then just when I have it all going right …
I assure the universe it will be okay if I don’t get it
I’ll be fine
Don’t mind me
I’ll look after myself
Which is a tendency I have recognised permeating my entire life
I rarely ask for help
And in the rare event that I do
If there is any moment of pause at all
I jump in quickly, assure the person not to worry
I’ll be fine
I’ll take care of it myself
It’s a recent thing this realisation however
Of exactly how flawed my processes are
I’m still not sure how to work my way around it
I see the same thing in many strong women (and men) I know
Is it any wonder we live lives less than our full potential?
Less than the full potential of what we could have?
Is it fear of loss of control?
Is it a sense of “I don’t deserve this”?
Is it fear that asking for this means we will have to give something and it could be anything…
Is it fear of magic
Is it an engrained cynical sense of disbelief
Is it fear of our light – how do we handle it so it doesn’t shine too much, glare in other people’s faces
The thing is
I’m done with these old modes of behaviour
I’m getting older
There is suddenly this very real deadline (literally)on how much I can achieve
Finally my dreamy procrastinating voice is silent
There is no time
Not one wasted day
And I need help and damn it if every other Abraham Hicks following peanut can gain assistance then I am stepping up to the door
Excuse me Universe…sorry to trouble you
No that is the wrong approach
Yo! Baby let’s do this!
Still working on it
Updates version with solution ..
So this is a post that has sitting in my drafts for a long time. Not because the blocking issue has gone away but because now I have a cure to it – it’s worth posting.
As explained by a very dynamic woman on the week-end. When the law of attraction is not working it so because your core beliefs are not in alignment with what you are expecting,
Eg I expect to receive $20,000 by Friday
Or I believe in abundance
When your core belief is that you believe in scarcity
And I knew this – I had been working on my core beliefs but the only thing I had discovered is that they were out of alignment
Not how to fix it
If you believe the sky is red
Even if people are telling you – it is blue it is blue it is blue
Then to you
The sky is red
But what if someone came up one day stood beside you and let you tell them what your belief is
Without judgement or train to change your mind
The relief of actually being able to state your belief
Let it out
Get it out
And then that someone said – see here’s the thing
You are obviously seeing this in a different light to others
The way you see things is
Blue becomes red to you
But what is colour anyway
It is just a name
The sky is still the sky
Who gives a toss what colour you call it
Just like that your whole problem with colours disappeared – because you realised it was a perception issue
Not a truth
It is the same with core beliefs
They are perception issues
But deep down we still feel them as truths
This is working for me and more than that it is thriving for me
Perhaps I was ready
Perhaps I already knew all the crap I had to fix and that is why it is working so fast
But it’s working
See thoughts are echos and some thoughts are very persistent echos
So you have a thought
“I am a failure”
And you shove it down because hey that is negative and we can’t be negative can we no…
But you shove it down and it echos down there
And what it does is (when it is combined with all the other persistent echos like “I think that sunspot might be a melanoma”, “I don’t think I am good at this” “I don’t think I’m loveable” “I hate my thighs” ” oh shit I’m going to go broke” “there is never enough…” whatever is down there
You get this low level shouting in your system that is so damn toxic and they become echos that form your core belief.
Right so stop smothering them
That’s not working so well is it?
If you’re like me you are waking up already worried
Get a book and write them down.
Get as close to the echo as you can
Bring it into one word
Now we take one issue and tap – I’m not an expert here so I will leave the links and book at the bottom of the page and you go do your own research
I’m saying it works
So why this works is we bring the echos to the surface
And the more we look at them
And tap (the tapping breaks the circuit – it breaks the connections in the brain – once it is broken – you can form a new one that is more positive – break the old then form a new – yes it is backed by science this stuff works)
The tapping (on certain acupuncture points) releases the feelings associated to the thought – when you have the feelings down to a low level response
And have released the emotional impact of the thought
Then you reframe
My brain is already reframing as I’m tapping because I’ve done the work on the surface I know how stupid some of these thoughts are and how they have no basis in truth
I just needed to hear them – call them out for the internal bullies they are – and then when you see them standing there – bits of junk from your childhood, beliefs that your five year old you may have formed
Well it becomes very easy to deal with them
I’m a complex person
I have a lot going on at any given time in my head
I tap in the morning
And at night
Slowly working through my inner echos
I only started two days ago and already I am fixing physical aches in my body where I swear I must have carried emotional baggage
Actual people in my life are disappearing
I don’t know if martians have beamed them up or what
I’m just not bumping into them anymore in my head or in person
Cravings for food are disappearing because I literally used to eat my feelings
Yesterday I forgot to eat after breakfast
Until tea time
I don’t forget to eat
It’s quite incredible and Sally (Thibault) who spoke at the women’s summit that I attended and I bought her book – has so many amazing stories of recovery and careers suddenly taking off, weight falling away, cravings disappearing etc etc
If you google you will find other resources but Sally is not only trained she lives and breathes this solution and is so light and dynamic in person that she inspires everyone to try it too.
Our thoughts create our lives
And most of us don’t even take the time to listen to them
Honour those sad and fearful echos. They are like children trapped forever in a twilight zone. Little ghosts of who we used to be and all our painful junk. You will not move forward lightly and truthfully with those voices continuing to mutter
Do some research and check it out.
Tap man tap – I am loving it.

I’ve done that tapping, EFT. Dr. Mercola talks about it. Might have to get the book. I do yoga but I haven’t been consistently. It works IF you do it. Nice post. The thing about Time. I’m just wasting it right now, not writing. Or maybe it’s NOT wasted, maybe I’m gathering and hoarding creativity. Who knows….
Absolutely – there is a gathering – we panic when we aren’t writing but it is just because we are gathering. If you try and write now you will write crap – you know when you’re good to go because you can’t stop 😊
Excellent post 🙂 Today I’ve been chewing on something I heard recently “you don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are.” It’s certainly bringing some sludge to the surface.
Yes!! Absolutely 100% true – and I think tapping like poetry is simply recognising our feelings instead of distracting or smothering them and we think by recognising the feelings that we are somehow making it true when it is the opposite – you release them because you realise that they are lies. And then you come closer into alignment – powerful stuff !
I agree ❤️ “shadow” work is the most freeing endeavor we can do for ourselves. Lean into the negative baby, then let that baggage go!
Damn why is this me?
It’s everyone Lily – you have to look to what you actually believe. Get a pen and paper out and write what you want and then beside write all the reasons you doubt it might happen. You have to see the truth of you belief first and acknowledge why it is there – I could get to that bit but not past it – the tapping really helps me and once the reaction is lower then I reframe it – might take a little while but until you shift your internal structure you won’t be able to shift your external reality
Ok, so this post definitely makes me want to give tapping a try! Thanks for writing this!
Wonderful, thank you, really resonates with me. Haven’t tried the tapping, will do so now. All the best!
Hi Tamlyn – thanks for the follow – lovely to meet you, followed you back.
Great post – I think it might work for some as it seems to be very meditative, and if it works then why not? 😊
Hi Kellie thanks for stopping by 😊
