Attracting What You (Really) Are
One idea from the movie stuck with me, that "you attract what you are." I'd never heard it put that way before, and it prompted me to ponder the idea.
That we manifest what we hold as true, and put our attention on, is for me a basic spiritual "law." But attracting what we are is a different slant. Certainly the law of attraction is at work; we call to us what we believe to be real in our experience. Does it follow that the core of who I am is revealed in what I am attracting? I don't think so.
If I am poor, and I believe that my lot in life is poverty, then I am attracting what I believe I am. If I am lonely, and have come to believe that's how things are going to be for me, then I attract more of the same. If I have a hard time trusting and believe that no one has my best interests at heart, then I will attract situations that make me feel victimized. Bur what I believe is far different from who I am.
If for just a moment we can place our full trust in ourselves as whole and perfect expressions of divine consciousness, unable to ever fail at our purpose of knowing ourselves as unlimited creators of good, that is what we are.
So I will attract what I believe myself to be, part of the miracle of ongoing creation, and joyfully watch my life's course; I am an embodiment of God's love, wisdom and peace, and I am grateful.
May this tool be a blessing. . .
