For those of you who know me, who've read Master of the Realm, you know that I'm a straight-up kind of girl. I tell it like I see it, and I don't say things that I don't mean. In other words, I talk from my heart.
Over the last couple of years, I've written numerous articles about psychology, my spiritual awakening, my revelations, and other related topics. But the one thing that I didn't delve into too deeply was the law of attraction.
When I began blogging, it was in 2008, after Master came out. I shared plenty of true stories with you---tibits from the book--experiences that I had had, hoping that these experiences would guide you. I even talked about the law of attraction; although back then, I didn't have a name for it.
Since then, I've written a few articles about how to lift your vibration level, how the law of attraction works, and how your core beliefs affect your outter world. In writing these articles, it was my deepest desire to have everyone on the planet read them; to take my personal experiences and apply them, so that they, too, could have new meaning to their lives. But if I have to be honest, I didn't get many readers. Not too many people were interested in hearing what I had to say. And it made me sad. Because all I wanted was to help people.
Today, while meditating, I had a huge revelation on why I'm not getting all the things I desire. And let me make this perfectly clear. Just because I'm intuitive and have a spiritual connection, does not mean that I'm infallible. On the contrary. I'm human and I have thoughts like the rest of you. I have fears like the rest of you. I have obstables, like the rest of you. But the one thing that I have that you may not have is the deep desire to overcome my fears and obstables; thus, I continually, faithfully, and undyingly call on God for answers.
So, it's like this: I have tremendous insight into how the mind works; how our core beliefs dictate our lives; and why we develop phobias and emotional anxieties. I've been studying the mind for over 24 years which grew to include metaphysics, healing, and neuro linguistic programming. I'm really big on using our minds to get what we want. But when I saw that I wasn't getting what I wanted by using my mind and its revelations, I had to take a huge step back and examine why. My story below is real and happened to me today.
On Saturday, I went through my kitchen cabinets to make a list of what I needed at the store. I noticed that I didn't have any canned tomatoes. And that's a big what in my house. No canned tomatoes? What will I do? So I went to the store. When I got to the aisle where the canned tomatoes were located, I went into shock. The canned tomatoes were more than double the price from when I last bought them. As a side note, I buy in bulk. If they go on sale, I buy a case or two. And the last time I bought them I paid .50 cents per can. They're now $2.85 per can.
I left the store telling myself that the holidays are approaching, and like every holiday, they'll probably go on sale. I wasn't scared of never getting canned tomatoes. I wasn't fearful that not getting them would ruin my life. I just knew that I'd get them. My attitude was, hey, whatever.
Now follow me closely on this. Despite my attitude that I wouldn't worry over how I'd get these tomatoes, I still wanted these tomatoes. I didn't lose sleep over it, but when Sunday came, and I had to go back to the store for an item I'd forgotten to buy the day before, I went down the canned tomato aisle just to check it out. Nothing changed. The price was still off the charts.
Today is Monday. After my morning talk with God, I took some clothes to the dry cleaners. Next door is a store called TOP TOMATO. Yeah, I know. What a coinky-dink. Anyway, I said, let me check it out. I walked in, checked out the prices of the canned tomatoes, and did an about-face. This store was more expensive than the other store. Now here's where it gets good.
I went home and was getting ready to start work when I thought that the only store I didn't check over the weekend was SHOPRITE, and the reason I didn't check it was because I had checked it on Friday, and the prices were equally as high as all the other stores. So I said, what the heck. I'll go online and check their weekly circular again, just for the fun of it. And sure enough, my brand of tomatoes was on sale, and the sale started on Sunday. Imagine if I didn't think to check it again? The tomatoes were .80 cents a can. HOLY COW! That's a huge savings.
Now you might say, Val, that's just a coincidence. And I'd have to agree with you if it was a one-time isolated incident. But looking back on my life and examining all the little incidences that came to fruition--incidences such as the tomato caper, incidences that I've never given thought to, until now, I can honesty claim that these incidences were not coincidences. They were, and are, the law of attraction at work. But I want to make one thing perfectly clear. All my life's incidences, the one's that happened, the one's that I wanted to happen, were things that I didn't fear not happening. They weren't life threatening things; therefore, I didn't fear the consequence of not getting them. Add up enough of these so-called coincidences and suddenly you realize that there's more happening here than meets the eye. It's the universal law of attraction doing its thing.
Which leads me to . . .
Lesson one --- The law of attraction
For anyone who doesn't know what the law of attraction is, it's a universal law that states you will attract anything that's equivalent to your vibrational frequency---or level. Everything in the universe, everything that exists, vibrates at different frequencies. It's been scientifically proven, and known, that the universe, and everything in it, is made of energy. And energy swirls and vibrates. To learn more about it, read Power vs. Force.
Now, think about this carefully. We think all day long. Thinking is what defines us. It's what drives us. We humans are pure consciousness who are ego--driven. We think, analyze, rethink, reanalyze every waking second of our life. Our thoughts, which are pure energy, define who we are. And if our thoughts are bad or negative, it attracts more negative thoughts ( vibrational match ) which in turn goes out into the universe and attracts all things equal in vibrational frequency. So to recap. We are beings who operate through an ego--driven conscience, thus, our thoughts can take multitude directions.
Now. Fear is a negative energy force, which exudes from our being and goes into the universe. Fear is a block that will keep you from getting what you want. When you fear, you draw more fear to you. And when you draw more fear to you, you draw events--incidences--that will validate your fears even more. If you doubt what I'm saying, think back on the events in your life which you've feared that have come true. So, it's like this. If you're a negative Nelly and complain all day long, and have multiple fears about life, your vibrational level is probably extremely low, and therefore, you will attract only the people or events that are equally low---or a vibrational match to you.

Taking this a step further. If the law of attraction is constant, and we can't stop it, we have to really understand how it works. All the big things in life, such as money, love, career, and health, are parts of our existence that effect us the most. We fear not having these things, and dwell negatively on them all day long. Which means that if we think about all our bills that are piled up on the kitchen counter, and worry over how they'll get paid, telling ourselves that we DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THEM, then the universe will bring us just that: not enough money to pay them.
My story about the tomatoes is true, and is a powerful example of how the law of attraction works. So stay with me on this.
What you desire must be on your mind ( your thoughts ) and stay on your mind for a minimum of three days to get it into the universe. THE KICKER? You want it, but deep down you don't fear not getting it. You want those damn tomatoes, and will keep your eye out for them during your travels (still keeping it in the back of your mind), but you're okay if you don't find them. In other words, there is ABSOLUTELY NO FEAR of not getting your tomatoes. With your mind on the tomatoes---wanting them, but not fearing that you won't get them---they will come to you. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THIS? The universe will line up events so that you will find your tomatoes on sale. Why? Because your heart and intention is set on getting canned tomatoes, but you have absolutely NO FEAR of it not happening. There's nothing blocking the universe from delivering what you want.
Get it? Fear is what keeps you from getting what you want. So how do you get what your heart truly desires? How do you keep the fear of not having it from your heart and mind?
I'll tell you a little later during the week. One step at a time. I want you to really give this thought.
