Hello everyone :)
I am in need of a little guidance. I have been trying to follow the LOA for many many years. The first year i started i had great success and everything on my list happened within the space of a year- i met the love of my life, we got engaged, we moved in together into our own place, i got my dream car and also landed my dream job. Pretty awesome.
Over the last 2 years, still trying to apply the LOA into my life, i need some help as to what i might be doing wrong as things keep taking an unexpected turn. My husband has lost his job 3 times in the space of a year and a half, meaning we've had to move 3 times, our debt is increasing and we always seem to now have financial struggles. Every day leading up to these 3 major events- one which we are going through right now, i have followed the rules of being so thankful everyday for everything in my life. Appreciating all that we have. Asking and focusing on what i want.
As soon as a negative event occurs in my life i feel i am then forcing myself to follow the rules of LOA rather than really feeling it, and then over the weeks i take a downwards spiral, and hit a low and say the LOA doesn't work, and become this pathetic self pitying person that i don't want to be, and question- why is this happening to me, again?
In a really worrying time of my husband being out of work again and not knowing how we are going to pay the bills and Christmas coming up, I'm looking for words of encouragement to turn this around, some guidance, and how to feel focus on the good when i just don't feel good at all. I don't want to pretend to feel good.
Thank you in advance :)
Just to make you smile. xD
Great. With your husband and the new job, don't lose hope. Things on the surface rarely reveal the changes that are happening deep beneath and the same could be true here. Like you say, often times when we think things are going wrong - they are actually leading us to a greater good or new experience which we can develop and grow from. Rarely do things ever turn out as we expect, but that is the beauty of it - the universe will always deliver the best that it can that sometimes even goes beyond our imaginations.
Definitely not losing hope. Thanks so much :) yes i 100% agree. And so many times before when we have been through what seems a dark time it has definitely lead to something so much better, and so i hold on to those experiences. I feel so much happier this week. There are no knots in my stomach and i am free from chest pain. I feel happy and calm. Happy that i am alive again today and i have enough money today to be able to eat. and of course i have a roof over my head and my family. So i am thankful. I await to see what the Universe will bring to us. Even if its not the ultimate end goal, the next stage of the journey.
