We can start by realising that everything is created twice. First in the mind and then in the physical. Everything that is in our life, we have co-created this. This includes the good, the bad and the ugly. As soon as we take responsibility for everything that is in our life, including the bad and the ugly, we claim our power back and we can do something about it. This is not about who is to blame. It is about who is going to be the solution!
Let me share a story with you of something that happened a number of years ago.
That night the fence-alarm went off at about three 'o clock in the morning. I knew something was wrong. Someone had entered the garden through the electric fence. They had first broken through my pre-fab wall and set the alarm off, because one of the wires broke. They were gone.
Because I had watched the Secret the night before, I asked myself "W did I attract this attempted break in?" Who in their right mind would do that? Here are a few reasons I discovered:
- I had been unhappy to leave the dog alone, while we are on holiday and only have somebody to come in and feed her. Now that this had happened my husband suggested that we look for somebody to house-sit for us.
- I have been nagging my children to put their valuables away, like a camera and play station, but I was ignored. Now they realise the importance of it all.
I now fully understood how I had attracted the attempted break in. By acting on the points above, I trust/hope I don't have to attract it again.
Then I said "It would be nice to see some animals up close and they don't run away. Wouldn't it be nice if they would even come to me?" I kept on walking and then I nearly bumped into a herd of buffalo. These can be very dangerous. I was scared. There was no tree to climb, only thick thorny bushes.. All I could do was walk away calmly.
All of a sudden I heard the thundering of hooves. I quickly spun around. To my horror I saw the thirteen buffalo running straight at me.
I realised I had to face them. I started praying out loud, asking for Divine protection. The buffalo stopped less than two meters away from me. I kept on talking calmly to them, while my legs were shaking uncontrollably.
I talked to them about my children and told them that I want to see again. I asked them if knew the way to the lodge were I was staying. The big bull started coming even closer, but again through a Divine prayer he stopped immediately. The idea of feeling his snotty nose up against my arm was not inviting. A juvenile came up to half a meter from me, but he didn't look threatening. Then they walked away.
Then I looked up Deer, it said "Do things the gentle way". So I don't have to go and arm myself to the teeth.
Then my husband said "What about Buffalo?" Their message was ... "Rely on the power of prayer!"
Be aware of what you ask for, consciously and subconsciously (through your fears)
Stay calm when faced with a dangerous situation so that you can
Ask for Divine protection and make it a habit, so it comes naturally when you are in danger.
