The Law of Attraction is a beautiful thing because no matter what you’re powerfully giving your attention to, it brings it right to you. Like the endless amount of checks I receive in the mail, or my love of red Cabrio’s which I see every time I’m out driving. Or a book deal, which is on its way to me, or national magazine publication, which is also happening right now. But, the same goes for the stuff I DON’T want.
And so, late Saturday night I found myself in the ER at St. Vincent’s Hospital (btw – lovely hospital and the staff is AMAZING! Shout out’s to Dr. Douglas and Mary, my nurse). I’m not sure if it’s all the attention I was paying to my sister’s getting that new HPV vaccine or the fact that one of my sis’s had pre-cancerous cells burned off or that my grandparents have cut me out of their lives due to differing religious beliefs (they’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, I am not). Perhaps it was the extreme anger I’ve been feeling towards a particular situation that is out of my control. Most likely, it’s a little bit of all of those things that sent me running to the ER in horrible pain.
Now, I’m going to live. I’m going to be more than fine, but this experience was a wake-up call. My life is good. I mean, the best it has ever been. My career is incredible, I have wonderful friends and I’m having the best romantic relationship of my life. Each day I am overcome with gratitude and yet, I find myself dealing with a health problem. And then the answer comes. The doctor’s orders? No high-impact exercising (I’m a lil’ obsessive when it comes to weight/exercise), more sleep and no stress. Aha! The universe, once again, is giving me exactly what I need.
And so, I will make more refinements. My body and soul is demanding it. Slow the pace down more, eat even better and give my body all of the tools it needs to heal itself.
Since I know, and as a dear friend pointed out, in a spiritual sense I am already completely healthy, it’s only a matter of aligning the two. Sometimes, I get so wrapped up in the physical, I forget to reach deep within. And then, my body responds – screaming at me, since I’ve disregarded it’s earlier endeavors to slow down.
It is truly amazing to see the perfection in every life circumstance and I am blessed to be on this Earth to do so. If you have words of wisdom for me or healing techniques that have worked for you – please leave a comment, I would love to hear all about it!
