After having stomach flu for a day, I had another bad fall yesterday and whacked myself and my bad shoulder and knee but didn’t break anything. My leg swelled up and I couldn’t sleep comfortably and I cried and cried, so, feeling sorry for myself, I pulled a card from the Health and the Law of Attraction Cards by Esther and Jerry Hicks.
WHENEVER I AM FEELING BAD, I AM ATTRACTING THAT WHICH IS UNWANTED
In capitals no less. It’s like you can talk to the dark angel swooping in over your shoulder, or the light angel trying to encircle and comfort you.
This is tough when you repeatedly injure yourself, because you feel like it’s never going to get better.
“Without exception, the reason for negative emotion is that you are focused upon something you do not want or upon the lack or absence of something that you do want.” After a few choice words to the spouse about letting the dogs lie on the kitchen floor while he’s cooking so that I constantly trip over them, I realized that a lot of my upset had to do with not feeling like anyone cared about me, or cared enough to listen to my concerns about safety.
What is it I DO want? To feel healthy. Which is up to me.
You always have yourself.
After my Dad died I bought some art technique books, and two books on fashion history, and a biography of John James Audubon. I also joined a reading group and I’m reading a classic book with the group and tracking my reads for the year. My library didn’t have this classic book so I’m reading it on my tablet, and it’s going pretty well. It’s certainly much easier to read an eBook on a tablet rather than on a laptop. I was pleasantly surprised.
Remember to be in the process to attract joy, stimulating things for the mind, and all the other things I do want!
