With God All Things Are Possible
I had a recent conversation with someone in reference to preparedness and being ready for the unexpected whether it is a medical emergency or, on a grander scale, a national disaster. The individual I was speaking with didn’t mean for it to be a spiritual conversation, however for me, everything evolves around spirituality. I pointed out to this individual, who happens to be Christian, that if he had faith in God then he would have faith that God would provide for him in his greatest time of need. In fact Scripture tells us so. In 1 Peter 5:7 of The New American Standard Bible we read, “Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” And in Philippians 4:6 we find this verse, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” There are many other verses that encourage us to turn to God and have faith that He will provide if we only ask. “… ask, and it will be given to you …” Luke 11:9
Now, while it is true that I no longer follow the Christian way, I have not disregarded all that I have come to learn and understand from Scripture. The Bible holds many wonderful teachings and lessons that can be and, in my opinion, should be applied today. In fact, the individual I was speaking with was astonished to find the similarities between my Eclectic Wiccan beliefs and his Christian ones. My labels may be different but the underlining message is still the same.
I have learned about and deliberately utilize the Universal Laws. These three laws affect all things physical and non-physical in all times within the Universe. They are as described by Abraham-Hicks: The Law of Attraction (That which is like unto itself is drawn.), the Science of Deliberate Creation (That which I give thought to and that which I believe or expect – is.) and the art of Allowing (I am that which I am, and I am willing to allow all others to be that which they are.). By applying these laws I am able to manifest the things I desire in my life. I’ve been actively living this way for a year and my life has been a plethora of happiness. I don’t worry about natural disasters or medical emergencies. I don’t obsess about what will happen “if this” or “if that”. I don’t give in to the media hysteria that is easily created in our society. In fact, my home has not had access to television or newspapers in over five years. If I want to hear about national news then I need to proactively seek it out online or from others. Now, some may suggest that I am not doing my part by staying current on what’s going on in the world but I am quick to ask them if there is any good news because that is the only news I want to hear about.
The Law of Attraction clearly states that which is like unto itself is drawn. This means that whatever it is you are feeling or thinking, that which you are focusing your energy on, is what is being drawn back to you. Each and every thought, every emotion we have is made of energy and these vibrations are sent out into the universe attracting back to you what you are focused on. When you are happy and maintain a positive attitude, good things come to you. People with the same positive attitude are drawn to you. Wonderful opportunities present themselves to you. Your life is full of blessings from God.
Unfortunately many are unaware of how The Law of Attractions works and will out of fear or worry, unknowingly draw negative experiences, feelings and people into their life. I’m sure that you’re familiar with the saying, “Bad things happen to good people.” Well, when you are unhappy and maintain the attitude that “it’s just not your day/month/year” then negative things are drawn to you. People are rude and argumentative with you. Unfortunate or bad events surround you. Your life steadily rolls down hill and you seem to be cursed or be in Satan’s clutches. Both the positive and negative situations above are simple examples of The Law of Attraction.
Now, in my discussion with the Christian individual I explained that spending all their time and energy planning for and worrying about what might happen would in fact, cause that which they were worrying about TO happen. Expecting “bad things” to occur makes it so. I suggested focusing their energies and emotions on what they wanted to happen. I pointed out that feeling at peace, feeling happy and truly believing that God would provide that which they needed when they needed it would manifest it for them. God answers your prayers and it was Jesus that said in Matthew 19:26, “…with God all things are possible.”
