Feelings play an essential role in our creation process. In order to recognize the myriad ways that feelings assist us as we are creating, we must become aware of our feelings and what they are telling us. Otherwise, the message is lost and often misconstrued as confirmation that we are "less than", failing and headed toward disaster. Everything in our Universe has an opposite ~ good/bad, right/wrong, in/out, up/down. Lack/abundance, focus/distraction . . . wait, what?? Yes, when we intend to align with Who We Really Are, that means we are going to focus our energy, focus our thoughts and vision. If focus is God's sling shot, then distraction is "The Enemy's" Goliath. Where distraction enters, awareness fades. Distraction is designed to strengthen our "focus muscles" ~ it gets us into a place where we can choose to practice what we know. Or we can become bogged down in whatever is pulling our attention away. Our choice. In her book, "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World," Joanna Weaver talks about the "Three Deadly Ds of Destruction," which can and will make their presence known especially as we are undergoing times of transformation: Distraction Discouragement Doubt "Throughout time, [the Enemy] has resorted to these tactics to bring down God's best and brightest. The underlying strategy is fairly simple: Get people's eyes off God and on their circumstances. Make them believe that their 'happiness' lies in the 'happenings' that surround them." While religions have formed around the premise of resisting Satan or the Devil, the Law of Attraction is based on love and empowerment, so in this context we are choosing to see "The Enemy" as an aspect of consciousness that's present to help us to get stronger. If you are driven to distraction (and aren't we all at some time or other?), then this is the show for you.
