I've seen too many people "beat themselves up'" as they learn about the Law of Attraction and begin to apply it in their lives. Why are they so hard on themselves? Because when their desire doesn't materialize in a few days, they think they aren't doing it right or they don't believe enough. They are under the impression that in order to receive, they must have 100% belief -- no doubt at all. And so they try to convince themselves, and the Universe, that they DO have 100% belief, when, in their heart, they don't. Here's good news! You don't need 100% belief, just 51% to start the process of receiving all your goals, desires and hopes whatever you want in life will start to become your reality.
Just believe that it's possible for you to have what you've asked for. All you need to do is tip the scales slightly and you will begin to notice small (or big) evidence that your desire is on its way. As you stay in the mind-set of possibility, possibility grows into probability. Probability grows into belief and belief grows into certainty.
Certainty is the opposite of doubt. Here's a true story I received this week from Tony, a coaching client: "Since learning about the Law of Attraction, I have discovered that there are times when I cannot BE the way I'd like to be. This week, I found myself in an impossible situation and I remembered what you said: 'Instead of starting from a place of certainty, 100% guarantee, start with it's possible.' We visited friends in another state this weekend.
On our return flight, airport security was so tight, we actually missed our flight by four minutes. We arrived at our gate (literally the farthest gate in the airport) with six minutes to spare,. However, they closed the aircraft ten minutes before departure and would not open it for anyone.
We were put on the standby list for the next flight, which was full. Every flight after that next one was full, and it was important that we get back to go to work Monday -- we both have full schedules, and staying another night was less than ideal. I couldn't bring myself to believe that we were going to get on that next flight as 'standby.' My wife was still freaking out that we missed our previous flight, we had run out of baby food, and my son was getting cranky for a nap.
I could not bring myself to believe we were getting on that flight, but I kept thinking 'it's possible.' The next thing I know, one of the flight attendants took a fancy to my son, and started chatting with my wife, and before you know it, we were given-the last two seats on the aircraft. She arranged it so they were together, and we had a window. Our son sat on our lap. It's still hard to believe I "vibrated'" us onto that aircraft, but I did keep it open as a possibility.
So you were right, I only had to believe by 51%. Thank you, Rebecca!" Think about all the times you HAVE received something when you still had doubts about it. What is your desire today? Has anyone else ever received what you desire? If so, then is it possible that you can have it too? If you can believe, you will receive. Copyright (c) 2008 Rebecca Hanson.
