The Lovers, Law of Attraction Tarot
Card: The Lovers (R)
"in this moment the Law of Attraction is working, attracting emotions, persons, and situations." Really?!
Is it not, or am I just not seeing/sensing it - the card being reversed. I guess the latter. I don't think the cards have any interest in pointing out everything that doesn't work to me. It's more likely they try to shine lights on my doubts of whether it does, as my ego says it doesn't.
"Turn it in your favour by thinking only positive thoughts." Ok! Doubts, go away!
What is this Law of Attraction thing anyway?!
Theme: "you get back what you send out" or "what you think you get" or "the soul attracts what it needs" or "give it time to come"
3 Reasons The Law of Attraction Isn't Working For You (or feel/think it doesn't):
1. You focus too much on what you don't want, rather than what you do want in your life
Focus on what's lacking in a relationship instead of what's there, and focus on what you don't like in a person/partner instead of what you do like - for example. Thoughts and focus on lack and deficiencies attracts and creates more of the like..!
Of course the opposite approach is the healthier more productive choice - thoughts and focus on abundance and the good things, to attract and create more of that!
2. You put up resistance to changes
"What you resist, persists." What you resist wont go away until you accept it. Acceptance of the present moment, as Eckhart Tolle teaches. To not accept the "bad" sides in a person is not as effective as shining light on the good sides, and breed more of those, for example!
3. You have your sights set on the outcome of a situation instead of the present moment.
Which make you meddle with the fulfilment of it - disturbing the natural unfolding of it. Pushing the fulfilment instead of attracting it and letting it come to you in the most optimal way (from a universal perspective). The Universe knows the best way of fulfilling your wishes - when and how.
Make a wish, release it, welcome changes, and let the fulfilment come to you, in the way it should. And make the best possible of each present moment until it does (and after). And always make choices from the most loving part of your personality available ("think positive").
"The Lovers card is pure love and harmony. Reversed, it can signal a time when you're out of sync with those around you, particularly your loved ones. You may find your relationships are strained and communication is challenging. Does it seem as if you are just not on the same page and no longer share the same values? If so, come back to the reason you have this person in your life. If you love him or her unconditionally, know this moment shall pass and the best you can do is bring love and compassion to the situation." Maybe "strained and challenging communication", and "different values" aren't "bad" things, but serves a purpose? Maybe not focusing on "I don't like it that we can't communicate (as I wish)" and instead focus on what we do well together?! Maybe not focusing on what he does bad, but on what he has (inside him) that is good?! Maybe not focus on how a relationship should be, but on how it is?! For a purpose. Maybe we aren't "of of sync", maybe I'm just (once again) stuck in focusing on what I don't want (1), resisting to change my opinions about the present moment and things just being as they are (2), and have my thoughts disturbed by wishes on how it should unfold (3).
I've attracted him and our relationship for a reason - and I have attracted everything that happens!
"The Lovers reversed can also reflect that the feelings within a relationship are not mutual. One person may be more emotionally involved than the other, and this gap could lead to disappointment and insecurity later down the track." But the "gap" that the ego perceives could also be an illusion...! Due to...
"You may be reluctant to open your heart to the relationship for fear of getting hurt." Instead of doubtfully and fearfully thinking that others "lack of showing love" is a fault/problem ("taking it personally"), realising it comes from fear - as the soul feels and knows for certain that there's deep feelings of love below the behaviour. Therefore, instead of scolding "bad behaviour" - promote a good one! By creating a safe environment and relationship, where it's feels safe to open up. Safe even for someone who's been (feels) really, really hurt, and who's really afraid to.
That's not done overnight.
"Results" might take a long time to attract, and they might seem small - giving the illusion that there are none.
But the soul knows.
Why did I attract all this?!
Where and how will it all end up?
And it doesn't matter!
It will end up exactly the right way (as it should), if allowed to unfold in it's own pace and way.
