More vs. What Is: Is Law of Attraction Sick of Me? (Part One)

My friend D’Nicole, a seasoned spiritual being, calls me with a very interesting question: “Is it really okay for me to desire more, especially when, compared to some people, I have so much?”
I am momentarily confused. “What do you mean? ‘Is it okay to desire more’? What should you be desiring? Less? Are we still living in America? Have we been invaded by the Communists? Or the Amish?”

She laughs. “No, nothing like that. It’s just, well, I really do have so much to be thankful for, and I’m getting a definite signal from the Universe that I should back off on trying to manifest new stuff,” D’Nicole explains. “Maybe I should spend more time appreciating what I have and less time trying to get somewhere else.”

“That Goddamn Universe,” I complain, “such a tease. I have it on good authority that every part of every part of It is designed to make us want more, to make us reach for more, to make us create more, and here It is totally screwing with you for doing what It’s calling you to do.”

I ask her for some specifics. “How, precisely, is the Universe telling you to back off?” D’Nicole tells me how she’s been reading and practicing The 40 Day Abundance Plan by John Randolph Price, a program of affirmations and meditation to increase abundance consciousness. There’s ten statements of inner wealth that you repeat and meditate on, one each day. Then you go through the whole cycle four times. And by the end of the proverbial forty days your money issues will have vanished back into the ethereal dust from whence they came. Or something like that.

“I’ve tried that a couple of times,” I tell D’Nicole. “But I can never get past, like, day seven. I’m all: ‘Infinite wealth is who I am; my consciousness of my supply IS my supply—Holy Crap there’s a new episode of Real World Las Vegas!’ I have selective ADHD when it comes to Inner Wealth Awareness.”

D’Nicole politely overlooks the fact that her forty-one year old friend is still mesmerized by The Real World. “Well, I was actually doing pretty good with it. I was really getting into the statements and the meditations and everything. And then everything started to go to pieces with my business. I got a “Cease and Desist” letter from some guy who claims he had the original rights to our business name. Our product got pulled from the shelves at Whole Foods on a technicality, after all the work I put in to get us in there. And I found myself actually starting to hate making cookies, which is kinda, you know, the opposite reason I started a gourmet cookie dough business.”

“So I was thinking,” D. continues, “that maybe the Law of Attraction is just getting sick of me asking for More, More, More—maybe I’ve already got enough. I have a great husband, and his business is doing really well. I have two amazing kids and I love being a mom. We have wonderful friends and a truly interesting life—maybe the Universe is like, ‘Enough already, D, chillax and enjoy your blessings’.”

“Hmmmm,” I say. “I can definitely appreciate that enjoying your existing blessings is a good idea. Gratitude for what had already manifested in our lives is such a powerful thing—just the noticing how much we currently have makes EVERY experience easier and clearer. So it’s never a mistake to choose to appreciate What Is.” I pause. “But still, I think Desire for More is also a natural state of being. I can’t say I’m overburdened with people complaining that their lives are so fantastic there’s absolutely no room for anything to improve in any way.”

(Of course, I am a life and business coach, so I wouldn’t really be the person that people come to in order to complain about how there’s just too much perfection in their lives. I’m the person people come to when they want to know how the hell to get that bastard off the couch and out the door to his son’s Little League game).

And yet, I suspect that D’s issue is not the Universe being annoyed with her requests for “more.” No, I think Law of Attraction is sending her a very different message. Tune in next time for “more” on this very common glitch in Universal Communication.

Relief from My Story, Part Two.

Today I’m talking to my friend/client Pete and he’s got a story (also known as a “life situation”) that’s really making him crazy. He’s got a long history (you could call this his “back story”) of money, money, money. For most of his life he’s worked in the financial industry in one form or another, making money, moving money, growing money, losing money—you get the general idea. Lots of money happening in all kinds of ways.

For most of his life, this story of money has treated Pete well—sure, he’s lost $500,000 in day, but he’s also made it in a day, too (As a person who’s personal awareness of money is almost nonexistent until I discover I don’t have any, I find this fascinating. According to my chakra expert friend, this is because my root chakra sucks ass, but that’s a story for another day).

So here’s Pete sailing along in his money boat, and then all of a sudden, over the past couple years, things go from sunny to bad to stormy to full-on shipwreck mode. Pete’s former harmonious relationship with money goes sour. His existing clients wander off to greener pastures. His potential new clients won’t return his calls. His investments and accounts appear to be slowly but steadily disappearing down a giant money-suck drain.

This ain’t Pete’s first time at the circus, so he does all the “right” things. He takes action. He takes responsibility. He takes risks. He takes care of himself, or at least, he tries to. In fact, he’s a 90 Hour Workweek Whirlwind of exhausting optimism. Just being around him kind of hurts. He’s so determinedly cheerful and resolute and upbeat it’s like being stuck in some bizarro Rogers and Hammerstein transformational self-help musical.

Imagine the cowboys and cowgirls of Oklahoma! Cavorting around the train station singing “Everything’s Up to Date In Kansas City” under threat of imminent execution and you’ve got a pretty good picture of what Pete’s money/work energy is like.

So as a newish Law of Attraction fan, Pete comes to me and asks, “Ellen, what the hell am I doing wrong? Why does Law of Attraction hate me? I just learned all this cool stuff about how thoughts become things and I’m all excited to manifest beyond my wildest dreams and now the Universe is destroying me! What is going on?”

“Hell if I know,” I tell him. “But what I do know is that there is something within you that knows exactly how to heal this situation. And I know that it’s time for some serious relief from that story you got going on--because it’s wearing me out just thinking about it.”

“But why am I losing so much money? I want to make money. I already told the Universe that!”

I tell him that Law of Attraction pairs us up with our predominant thoughts, beliefs, or ways of being. So, at some point in the past (doesn’t matter when, or even why) some part of him started to feel poor, and then he managed to suck some poverty in his direction to confirm this feeling. And then once he started to feel uncomfortable about money he began to push Money away (unintentionally) by thinking thoughts that felt like Not Money. And Money has to obey Law of Attraction just like everything else, so Money was all like, “Crap, I guess I gotta stay away from Pete, since he’s all into feeling Not Money.”

“But how do I Feel Money when my current reality is so Not Money? How do I get relief?”

I agree that this is a challenge. It requires you to think Airy Fairy Woo-Woo thoughts about stuff you aren’t experiencing right this second. It requires you to reach beyond current reality into an imaginary state of being that you desire.

If you are truly feeling anxious about something, like Pete, it requires you to relax, take deep breaths, drink some water, and maybe take a nap. It requires you not to take your created reality so seriously, because as soon as you loosen your grip, it will begin to transform. It requires, above all, some serious self-friendliness. Be kind and loving to yourself as you choose these new thoughts, and be proud of everything new that you are able to notice.

All of which is especially tough for us Westerners, because we take pride in “addressing” and “fixing” all current “bad” stuff we are experiencing. We like to “tell the truth,” and “face reality.”

And yet, reality is just a thing that’s happening right this second. The “truth” about anything can actually change as quickly as we allow it. We may not see the results immediately, because it takes the physical world a few moments to catch up with the lightning speed of our thoughts. And it may take us a bit of practice to get a new type of thought firmly pumping through our being.

But that loving feeling of plenty of freedom, space, and security is so worth the effort. Even if it is “imaginary” just to start. Of course, all things start out by being “imaginary.”

Relief From My Story: Part One

The more I look around at the human condition, the more I am confronted by one undeniable reality. We, the people, are maniacal meaning-making machines—our lust to create meaning knows no bounds.
Especially when it comes to our lives—we simply can’t keep our hands off our story. Nor are we meant to. It is perhaps our purest universal experience—the desire to shape and examine and redirect each moment of our experience so it fits into our narrative of what SHOULD (or shouldn’t) be happening.
If you don’t believe me, just think back upon your day and start separating what actually happened (the facts) from your story about what happened (your interpretation). Go ahead. I’ll wait.
See what I mean?
When our story’s going great, and we’re living up to the heroic role we’ve purposefully created for ourselves, this feels amazing. But what about when we become victims of our own experience, victims of our own creation, of our own stories?

There’s a wonderful example of this in the recent Disney remake of Tron. Jeff Bridges plays a man named Flynn, who has tapped into this holographic matrix alternate reality called the Grid—a dayglo Sharper Image kind of place where people have laser motorcycle duels in neat fluorescent colors. But because he cannot be in this alternate universe all the time, he creates a virtual doppelganger named Clue to run the show in his place. All is well until Clue gets some ideas of his own and challenges Flynn’s authority.
Other characters question Flynn’s decisions first to fight with Clue and then to hide from him (in a minimalistic ashram that’s somehow “Off the Grid,” but, whatever). “Isn’t he the one that created Clue as a program?” asks Flynn’s son. “Why doesn’t he just delete or redesign him? How can he be so afraid of his own creation?”
Most of us are like Flynn most of the time. We create our story, including plot, setting, and characters (just for fun, picture yourself as Central Casting Agent for your life. Do you notice any patterns in the actors who surround you and show up for auditions to be in your movie?)
Then we get creeped out by some aspect of our creation: “My job sucks, my spouse isn’t sexy, my children hate me, I never get any respect, something’s wrong with my body.” And then we get stuck in the very seductive delusion that we are powerless to re-write the program to enjoy a very different outcome—“Nope, that’s it. Even though it sucks, somehow I created it like this and this is how it’s gonna stay!”
Wise friends could be telling you that you have the power to change any aspect of this story that doesn’t please you. And if you’ve been around the metaphysical block a couple of times, your inner monologue might sound something like mine when I get in this resistant state:
“I know, but I caaaan’t. I just feel so hopeless about this and you are now annoying the CRAP out of me. I don’t care about Law of Attraction. And I am now also annoyed with God, and especially with the Universe. Please don’t talk to me about the Universe and how rich and abundant and healthy and happy it is because I really don’t care. Who cares about the Universe’s stuff? What about Me? Where’s my stuff?”
This is when I know it is time for relief from my story. The fastest way to achieve this, for me, is to unplug for a few moments. If you are currently suffering from Story Overload, this might be a good plan for you, too. We’ll talk more about this in Part 2 of this segment. Bur for now, know that all you need to do is just reach back there and unplug your brain.

Ahhhhhhh! Doesn’t that feel good? If you truly unplugged, all you’re up for, right about now, is playing with your dog, your child’s Legos, your remote control and/or the cast of Jersey Shore. You have entered the blank zone of Being and Nothingness. The perfect place to rest (and reset your programs) before you begin to create again.

    Want the Law of Attraction to work in YOUR life??

    In the spring of 2006 there was a big "Secret" released. It was as I am sure you already know the film “The Secret”. In the film “The Secret” it was revealed that the Secret of many very successful and wealthy people was their use of The Law of Attraction. It was said repeatedly in the film, that with this Secret anyone could achieve or have anything that he or she wanted. It was quite a revelation and it had millions of people very excited. The movie was very enlightening and made many amazing claims. Many people had their minds opened to the "Secret" which is of course all about "the Law of Attraction" Many people including myself began to use The Law of Attraction in their lives. Some people have had great success working the Law of Attraction while the majority of others have had little if any success. I personally did not have much success when I began using the Law of Attraction and as a result I became increasingly frustrated.  As a result of this frustration I became determined to find out why the Law of Attraction only worked for some and not for most people. What I found was the Law of Attraction as simply stated in the Film “The Secret” was incomplete.

    I began searching to find out how to get the Law of Attraction to work in my life. After many weeks of searching intently on the internet and many dead ends,  I finally discovered that Bob Proctor and Mary Morrissey had discovered the Secret to making the law of attraction work for everyone. They had figured out what was missing, and why some had success and why most others failed to achieve their dreams using The Law of Attraction. What they found is that there are actually 11 laws of Attraction that need to be followed precisely in order to make the Law of Attraction work its magic in everyone’s life. Now The Secret to the Secret is “The 11 Forgotten Laws”.

    I have had amazing results as a result of working these 11 Forgotten laws in my life. If you are frustrated by not having your desires fulfilled through your working of the Law of Attraction, you will want to check out

    The 11 Forgotten Laws. It is the answer I was searching for. Now I am able to manifest that which I desire easily and consistently.
