There was this episode on Oprah once about "Law of Attraction", a concept that has existed for centuries and was resurrected eight years ago by Rhonda Byrne.
The Law of Attraction states that you are what you think about. Example: If you think you are doomed to a life as a spinster, your subsequent purchase of 24 cats will ensure it. If you think you are going to fail a test, your poor attitude will affect your judgement and will cause you to fail (this is science people!).
On the flip side, if you want to be rich; simply imagine money and act like you have money, and money magically will appear. You'll find $20 on the street, grandma will die and you'll receive her inheritance, you'll get a raise. Some argue that the Law of Attraction is simply assigning meaning to coincidence. Other critics say that thinking about money means you'll be looking for it--while you never would have picked up a quarter off the street before, suddenly its appearance is proof of the Law working in you life.
My question is this: assuming the Law of Attraction is the ultimate law of the universe, what if you lose control of what you are "manifesting" (LoA vocab word #1). Example: through dreams.
Three days ago during my nap time I dreamt that I was eating a chocolate frosty. This was strange because I rarely go to Wendys, and when I do I get vanilla frosties. I woke up to a text from Zandratee requesting I come to her house because she had a treat for me.
What was it other than a chocolate frosty? People--this is not normal.
|How I feel when eating anything|
I awoke from my nap and during my post-nap bathroom break my father called me. A strange time to call, but I answered and he said, "Malarkey, I have some interesting news for you."
Me, still groggy: "Okay..."
Dad: "you know how Justin Bieber was arrested for drunk driving?"
Dad: "Well the corner he was arrested? It's across the street from your mother and my first apartment, where we brought you home from the hospital 22 years ago."
I apologize Justin, for manifesting your arrest.
|At least the alcohol doesn't affect his signature hair|
I woke up very depressed, but mostly afraid that I will manifest a disappointing pre-engagement.
So, my plee to the Law of Attraction, please stop manifesting the things over which my conscious mind has no control!
Except for Frosties. Those can stay.
