Law of Attraction in Action: Accepting the Bad with the Good

This is post 185 in my series on the Law of Attraction in Action. You CAN use your power to manifest your desires. I do it every day! Read all the posts in my Law of Attraction in Action Series to see how.

Do you believe that in life you have to take the good with the bad? Many people do. Not me anymore! But I used to believe that life was a series of good and bad times and we just had to roll with the bad stuff so we could enjoy the good. Everyone around me believed the same thing. You took the good with the bad. And for me, life had lots of bad, interspersed with good.

Now I know better! While I can’t say that nothing bad ever happens to me, I get a lot more good these days, now that I understand how the Law of Attraction works. If you accept that good comes with bad, then good will come with bad. It’s that simple. Your thoughts determine your reality. When you expect to have bad along with the good you get, the bad comes.

When you keep your vibration focused on good, you minimize the bad stuff you get.

Yes, things won’t always be perfect. That’s just how life is. If you let something negative get to you and your vibration reflects it, things you don’t want can slip in. But you have the power to limit and control the bad by controlling your vibration as much as possible. Learn how to make lemonade when you get hit with a lemon. It might rain on a day you planned to do things outdoors but instead of letting disappointment spoil your day, find something great to do indoors. Accept that everything happens for a reason.

The most important thing is to not sink down. When you make lemonade—by finding the good in the unexpected or negatives—you keep life sweet.

The Law of Attraction responds to your vibration. Keep thoughts of bad things out of yours as much as possible. The ratio of good to bad is in YOUR control. Control what thoughts you allow to get into your vibration. While life can sometimes gets me down, my ups are what I try to base my vibration on. That tempers the downs and helps them pass quickly. If you only allow positives to drive your vibration, you’ll keep the good coming to you!
