Can You Get Back on Track?
It’s a beautiful Sunday morning. I wake up full of life and energy—it’s one of those days that I know I’m going to get a lot accomplished. I lie in bed and drink in the fabulous feeling; I can literally feel it soaking into every cell.
With a smile on my face, I head downstairs to my computer. Writing my newsletter is first on the list; I know exactly what I want to share with all of you.
A quick glace through my e-mail shows me I’ve had several product orders come in overnight. How fun, I think! This day is just getting better and better.
I pop open the first order—wonderful. I pop open the second order—wonderful. I pop open the third order. I see this person has ordered an entire line of release meditations from me…but wait, the total is completely wrong. Somehow, she used a coupon code that gave her the entire series for fr^ee. $90 of product for no charge.
All of sudden the wonderful feeling was gone. In its place were frustration, some disbelief, and this feeling of, “of course, why should I expect the day to go so easily.” These lovely feelings happened instantly; like the floor dropped out beneath me.
Honestly, these feelings are very familiar. Even with all the work I’ve done on myself, they still pop up. The difference is I now know exactly what to do with the feelings.
If I didn’t do anything, they’d lead me on a downward spiral. The day would get away from me and chances are, depending on how strong the emotion was that downward spiral could knock me out for the next week or so.
Instead, I follow these three steps:
- Feel the emotions
In a quest to feel “positive” so the Law of Attraction can bring us what we want, many people think they need to ALWAYS feel positive. So, if something bad comes up, you should just cover it up.
Not a good choice.
Take the time to actually Feel what you really feel. Otherwise, you’ll just end up shoving those feelings into your subconscious and you will have lost the power you have.
- Do whatever you need to do to shift the feelings
Once you’ve had a chance to feel those feelings, your first priority becomes shifting. Do whatever you can to shift to a better feeling. Dance. Get out in nature. Listen to music. Journal. Play with your pets. Take whatever time you need to shift.
- Take inventory: What are the clues being given to you?
In all honesty, these kinds of situations are pure gold. These situations are showing you, in vivid detail, what your set point is on the issue.
In my situation, there’s the practical: what’s happening with my shopping cart, what information do I need from that company to make sure this doesn’t happen on a bigger scale?
Then there is the underlying picture of my beliefs: how am I feeling about money coming in? How am I feeling about trusting my processes? How in my life am I living the vibration of frustration instead of prosperity?
I used to think mastering Universal law was all about only feeling good. Now I understand life is always going to happen. The better I feel, the better the circumstances. However, there will always be something that happens that doesn’t feel so good.
Instead of being a victim to my circumstances and allowing my emotions to lead me away from my soul-full, creative, purposeful place, I now work this process. I can get to the place of, “wow, I wonder what energy this client was running so she could get such a great deal for herself.” I can be in the place of, “I’m excited I figured out this glitch, so it’s fixed before the next flood of orders.”
Both of those thoughts put me smack dab in alignment with what I want.
Now that’s a good day!
