The Secret and The Law of Attraction (LOA) are becoming more popular. And, though, I do believe in the power behind them. I have never been someone to do something because it is popular. Nor have I been a popular person in school. But, times are changing and it is so inherently necessary they do. A few years ago, when I asked people if they’d seen or knew about either it was hit or miss. But, today a lot more people have heard of LOA and in one way or another believe there is something to it. It can either be very daunting or refreshing to acknowledge that we create the life we live. So why are people choosing to suffer, be sick, live unappreciated, have financial issues, work doing something they hate, stay with someone who hurts them, or all the other depressing choices we’ve all made in our own way.
I can’t say why anyone else has or does. But, I do know why I did. I was scared. I was misled. I doubted my own abilities. I felt I was in control. I felt I was doing what was expected of me. I was selfish. I was caught up. I don’t say “was” because it doesn’t happen anymore, but now I catch myself before reacting quicker. I am able to get a grip on myself by listening to how my body feels. Then, I chose to stay in a comfort zone. I no longer choose that life, though. Because every time I have stepped out of my personal comfort zone, it has transformed my life in some special way.
One vivid example of so many is when I was flying back from a semester abroad in Chile 2010 (I arrived about a week after the earthquake and my original flight from the U.S. to Chile was on the very day of the earthquake). There is a lot to this whole experience, but fast forward to my flight connecting from Santiago, Chile to Buenos Aires, Argentina. The flight was late causing me to miss the plane going to the U.S. This would not have been a problem if I had a visa that allowed me to stay in Argentina for more than 8 hours, one of which I did not have, and the amount of time until the next flight to the U.S. was about 10 hours off. So, I had two choices: 1. Get on the plane and go back to Santiago, Chile to start all over and pay all over for a flight to the U.S. tomorrow (lots of details but flight back to Argentina would be covered since it was that airlines mistake, but the next airline was not at fault for the first one being late and would not cover that flight since I technically was just “late”); or 2. Stay in the Buenos Aires airport and 9 out of 10 get thrown in jail for being in the country for too long without a visa, though this was obviously not a usual circumstance or something done on purpose. I freaked. I called my parents for some kind of guidance or help or reassurance of a better way to handle this. Something, just something. Instead I was told “I don’t know what you want me to tell you, Blanca. You know I don’t have any credit cards and don’t have any money to help. You’re going to have to figure this out. You’re the one that wanted to go abroad.”
I had no one to help. I felt abandoned in another country with nobody to turn to. So I got my butt on the plane back to Chile to figure something out. I cried and prayed most of the way. I was guided every step of the way with ideas and somehow pieced my way from one airport to the next with scraps of money, exchanges for that country currency, and quick internet searches. I got a free cab ride after listening to a lady’s own flight dilemma that got her a free taxi to the next airport in Buenos Aires where I needed to go. I was not alone and never have been. None of us are. And in the hardest, lowest of times I remember times like this. Of how I will always be able to get through whatever it is in front of me because there is a greater power who has my back. Together, when I feel like things are out of control or out of balance, we manifest. And we can all manifest.
Every challenge comes with a lesson to be learned. Some are a lot harder than others and are different for every person. We each have our own path and purpose. We are all spiritual beings in a physical body within a matrix world. We are here for unique reasons to learn by having specific challenges arise in our lives. These lessons are brought to us for a reason. It could have either been passed on to us from generation to generation to generation, or we brought it into our lives. I know, it is hard to believe we would volunteer to be a part of this. But, we have. We do it because we need to, we need to know what feeling low is like in order to appreciate being high again. When a seed is planted it is in the dark, dependent on its environment to provide what is essential for it to break through the soil ceiling and bloom into the beauty it is inside. So are we sometimes in the dark cocoon unaware that this painful process is going to allow us to go from being a land bound caterpillar to transforming into a beautiful butterfly who can feel the wind beneath our wings.
Over the past several years, I hit rock bottom in a way I never thought possible for myself. I went against what others said and started living life to the beat of my own drum. I am still working on this personal song of my life, but every day it gets better. Because I have chosen to lead a life unlike anyone I had known and I am allowing myself to be guided more and more by what feels right. What resonates with my heart and brings positivity, growth, or blessings to my life. To put it simply, I have played society’s game of life working 6-7 days a week and going to college and paying my way, but would rather co-create my own life. Why? Because I have never believed everything I am told.
This could be taken the wrong way. But, I have my own moral compass that has become stronger and more on point as I have worked on balancing myself in mind, body, and soul over the years. By restoring a resilient foundation of health within my body, I have learned to quiet my mind, be more present and live more consciously awake. This continues to be tested. And the more I learn, the more questions come up and at the right time become clear. I have embraced my sensitivity because it is a skill that lets me relate to others empathetically, to want to help others genuinely, and to do unto others as I would have them do unto me. I do not take lightly the intention coming through a person’s words or actions. I don’t take things lightly, but I have learned to not take so many things personally either. I have adapted ways to rid myself of another’s negativity, reduce the amount of toxins in my systems, and better balance my vibrational frequency.
This may seem a bit “out there” for those who do not yet realize how everything, including ourselves, are energy. Every thought, word, behavior, or action we embrace within that moment is energy. This is what almost anyone who steps back and puts aside what society may dictate, no longer conforms to doing things the same way. We change. On a deeper level, for intimate reason, we choose to change. And anyone can. We are on this planet during a very special time and the only way I know to convey this is by sharing my stories that have gotten me to where I am now.
I recently made one of the hardest decisions of my life. And I hope and believe it is for the best. But, needless to say it shook me up inside and I once again turn within myself to rise above. To restore balance within myself that makes a positive ripple effect outside of myself. How could this be? Because true healing takes place on level higher than the mere physical chemistry of our body and we are all connected on that level. So I believe something that better resonates with my life purpose may enter without resistance.
What is my life purpose? At a time when the outside world is going crazy and the news is full of horrible accounts that instill fear, worry, and doubt, we now more than ever need to look within ourselves to get our shyt together and benefit others all the same. I am here to lead others to restoring balance in their mind, body and spirit one step at a time. Why? Because, I feel, natural balance is the true piece of the puzzle everyone has seem to have lost or misplaced. I am not here to make money. I am here to inspire people’s conscious awakening so we may come together as a collective to build a better future.
It is all rainbows or sunshine after the storm has passed. And we are all butterflies or flowers after breaking through the darkness. We have the power. More power than possibly imaginable at this time. So let’s embrace this and stop throwing it away or giving it away for others to do as they please with it. There is so much good we can do in and for this world and our communities once we step out of our shells. We are the captains of this ship we call life. So let’s extend our hands out to one another as we live out this new definition of “billionaire.” In the awesome video below, Jason Silva defines the new age billionaire as “He (or she) who will positively effect the lives of a billion people. He or she who will reach out and say ‘I will positively affect the lives of a billion people. This should be our goal. This is our responsibility. Here is our chance.”
This is true freedom. I feel that I have been blessed with Shaklee because it is the vehicle we can drive to be the new age billionaire. It offers health, wealth, time, and freedom all wrapped up into helping others lives positively.
