Question submitted via Formspring:
“Are plants and animals under the Law of Attraction, or is it exclusively human?”
On a recent episode of my radio show, Rise UP with B. Dave Walters, we talked about getting over Daddy Issues, dealing with REJECTION, how to change *anything* instantly, and many other things. In the Q&A section of the show, this was one of the questions we talked about, but I’d like to say a bit more about it now.
The simple answer is: yes, plants and animals are absolutely under the Law of Attraction. In fact, they aren’t just bound by that, but by all 7 Universal Laws.
The thing that sets Human Beings apart from plants and animals is that we have free will. That means we can choose to be what we want to be, plants and animals cannot.
A squirrel has no choice in the matter, she is a squirrel.
The advantage she has, however, Is she lives her life totally in alignment with who and what she is. She primarily has three goals: to find food, to have babies, and to not let she or her babies become food for something else.
That’s it, that’s the menu!
So since 100% of the squirrel’s energies are dedicated to this short list of things, she is pretty successful at it for her entire life.
Remember when I said we can choose to be what we want to be, plants and animals cannot? Unfortunately most of us use that power to not be much at all! Having infinite choice means most of us choose to do nothing, and that is the absolute worst choice you can make.
The number one thing you can learn from plants and animals is how to live in alignment with themselves and their world; that means you can pick what you want to create and go after it.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
