Want It All?

 

 

 

“Do you think it would be as much fun, Edie, if you could trade some of the happiest days of your life for not having to experience some of the saddest? Do you think it would be as much fun if you could guarantee that some of your dreams would come true, by forgoing others? How about if only your “good” thoughts became things? Or… would you still want it all? I knew it! You take after me. ”    The Universe

This message came through on a morning when my brain is awhirl with a gazillion thoughts, some less than smile inducing and some actually stomach churning. They arrived via the imagination of Mike Dooley whose signature line “Thoughts become things ”   has remained in my brain since I initially heard it many years ago. Like most of you who are reading these words, I am convinced that the Law of Attraction works. I have seen things, people, money, opportunities, and even perfect parking spaces appear at the speed of thought. I have witnessed, sometimes line by line, scenarios with people as if perfectly scripted. Along with that ability comes the caveat “Be careful what you ask for….you just might get it.” and the ripple effects may surprise you. Choose wisely.

Sometimes I rub my hands together with glee at what I have called in and other times, have an ‘uh oh, now what?’ experience. Why am I surprised when what I have conceived of comes to be? If I take credit for the ‘good stuff’, can I also take responsibility for what I would see as less desirable and treasure them as important lessons? I am doing that right now, in the midst of shifts in various areas of my life. Facing the choices I have made; some decades ago, some as recently as the last moment, I am seed planting for new growth.

Mike’s aforementioned saddest moments have shown for me in the form of the deaths of loved ones, that brought with them lessons about the preciousness of life, health challenges that have invited me to slow down and allow others to take care of me, relationship changes that have been eye and heart openers…and the list goes on. As much as I might have fought these things kicking and screaming (literally and figuratively), I know that they have offered gifts in their wide open hands as I embrace life more fully and freely, appreciating each step that brought me to this precious moment.
