The Law of Attraction is TOXIC AS FUCK..
Now before all you LOA folks freak out...
I am not asserting that our attitude and our energy don't impact the way we show up in the world, or that it is a waste of time to look for the silver lining.
I do believe that there is always something that can be learned from a situation, and that our attitude affects how we experience this life.
When I see Coaches, Teachers, and Healers perpetuating this idea that we ONLY ATTRACT WHAT WE ARE A "VIBRATIONAL MATCH FOR" I get pissed.
I see it all the time.
❌Coaches telling people that they need to "Stay HIGH Vibe" in the face of extreme hardship and systematic oppression.
❌Mentors instructing their clients to "remove" so-called negative emotions from their energy field.
❌Teachers suggesting that their students somehow "attracted" their illness, their financial struggles, or their pain.
THIS IS NOT EMPOWERMENT!
Humans are FULL SPECTRUM beings. It is our purpose to experience all of the emotions, and to learn how to sit with those emotions.
If you are feeling sad, or depressed it's okay. You are allowed to feel those feelings.
ALL OF YOUR EMOTIONS HAVE MESSAGES FOR YOU - And avoiding half of them, because they are "low vibe" is avoiding half of what makes you a human.
Shadow work is healing.
Depression is valid.
Fear is essential.
Denying these parts of ourselves is just further driving those emotions into our body, which causes harm.
Facing our emotions, holding the complexity of it all, showing up for ourselves, allows us to be who we truly are.
Even if it's messy, painful or uncomfortable for the people around you - It's worth it to feel it, explore it, express it and then release it when you are ready.
Don't let ANYONE shame you for being a whole human.
