But There Must Be Some Mistake…Why Would I Create THIS?

Line Break

Sometimes I wonder if being a celebrity is really as much fun as it seems to be. Living a life in the spotlight must have some exciting moments, and I am sure that high-profile people have a sharp sense of the leading edge of thought, for better or for worse. The joy and contrast that famous people encounter, however, is probably not exceedingly different than anyone else’s experience. We have seen a new wave of celebrity scandals lately, from former Presidential candidate John Edwards to golf legend Tiger Woods (as well as many others). No one is perfect, and no one ever will be. Each person has their own challenges and desires, and it can’t be easy to have millions of people watching you at all times, ready to blame you for your imperfect journey on planet Earth. I rarely give these stories my attention because I am not interested in including them in my vibration, and hence, into my experience. But there are two stories I will mention briefly today to make a point…that there is never a mistake concerning the Law of Attraction because what you get is always a match to your vibrational offering…always, with no exceptions.

I was reading another Law of Attraction blog (’cause I always like to read about and meet new people who are deliberate creators), and I read that Dr. Wayne Dyer had been diagnosed with some sort of cancer. My thoughts became confused for a moment, and then I asked “but how could someone like Wayne Dyer, who seems to have his act together so well, attract cancer? What went wrong?” The answer is, of course, that nothing “went wrong.” Knowing about Law of Attraction doesn’t make someone live in a thought bubble and immune to their own habits of thought. You are a spiritual being having a human experience on this planet, so you will have experiences now and again that feel like contrast. It’s part of the deal. That doesn’t mean that you can’t help others with insights that you have gained through your studies and experiences, and your imperfection shouldn’t stop you from adding as much value as you can to this world. The quote I read that was ascribed to Wayne felt very connected, and he seemed to be in a very allowing frame of mind about his diagnosis. This made me think about how we can’t stop contrast from coming into our lives (nor would we want to do this), but that we have ultimate power to decide how we focus our energy after the manifestation. A contrasting experience always opens up a strong desire for something better, and embracing the new desire is our number one job. That is what I felt from reading Wayne Dyer’s words about his condition. He is turning toward wellness with a new and energized focus. Because the manifestation was not an accident, but rather a culmination of energy flow (or energy blockage), he has a gift-like opportunity to examine how it all came to be. Turning to wellness will help him allow even more wellness. It works this way for everyone, famous or only locally famous.

So what if you are a deliberate creator and you create what can only be described as a total CRAP storm? In this reference I am talking about author and entrepreneur James Arthur Ray. You may remember James as one of the featured speakers in the movie “The Secret.” James did very well creating his own brand name associated with the Law of Attraction, and still has a loyal following who can separate the messenger from the message. He now also has some fierce detractors. He has been arrested for negligent homicide for a tragic incident that left three people dead during one of his retreats. This has caused quite a buzz in the LOA blogosphere, because he is a very visible person who has appeared on programs like Oprah in the name of Law of Attraction. It seems easier to blame James for his woes because he is a motivational speaker, and he makes a living calling others out on their blind spots and weaknesses. It seems like he should have seen this coming, and should have adjusted his thinking accordingly. But he, too, is only human and lives by the same Universal laws we all live with. He obviously didn’t predict the outcome here, and I believe there was no intent to kill anyone. But still, he attracted a XXXL-sized dose of contrast, and it is up to him to find the meaning behind the experience, and adjust accordingly. The Southern California staff from Gratitude Planet went together to see James speak this past fall, and we all had a funny feeling intuitively that we all shared after the seminar over drinks. We all felt an unease about his vibration, as if he was working really, really hard (too hard) to sell us his products. The word “allowing” didn’t make a whole lot of sense compared to the energy we felt that night from the stage. After the talk, he disappeared from the room without chatting with anyone, shaking hands, or answering questions. We were very confused…we wanted to believe he was perfect and living his message. I fully believe in his message, even if the messenger is struggling to hold it all together. When I heard that he attracted the mess he did, I can’t say I was surprised. We felt he was carrying and practicing a vibration that kept him from feeling free…and one that kept us from feeling his free and true self…and now he has manifested another challenge to his freedom, that of potential incarceration.

Interestingly, I read that Wayne Dyer is often the last person standing in a room where he gives a talk. He chats, listens, and gives freely of his time and energy for the people who are interested in his message. These two men, James and Wayne, have had two literally contrasting experiences…and each will continue to attract based on their most practiced vibration. Again, you can’t avoid things going “wrong” for you, but you CAN do your best to live your highest version of YOU. Be grateful, give freely, relax, and let your life be joyful as much as possible. Be appreciative for the famous people who help us learn about ourselves in public, so that we can be our imperfect selves in private. Send love to others, even when they fall short of your expectations. Let people chose what they will, and choose for yourself as well as you can. There is a perfect unfolding in the Universe, and we have an opportunity to align with it if we choose to…not for the sake of perfection, but for the sake of JOY! There are no mistakes. Enjoy this most amazing day! Chris-GP

      After studying Wayne Dyer I think their might be a possibility that Wayne could have manifested cancer by his actions early on in life. He has been alocohol free for 20 years, but his choices on how he treated his body back then could have lead to this.
      My ex girlfriend who is still an alcoholic has treated her body horribly and unfortunately she too has cancer. Why isn’t it possible for all the negative energy we are exposed throughout our lives, if not managed and released properly by the mind, to manifest itself in a concentrated area like it does with breast cancer, lung cancer etc.
      When she first found out she was diagnosed it was clear to me by observing her behavior in the 8 years I had known her that there was a link to how she treated her mind/body and the manifesting of cancer.
      There is good news though. Because she has been through so much she will make a great motivational speaker once she gets on her feet. For Wayne Dyer I see this only as a blessing for him which I think is a great way to think about it. By thinking about a positive outcome I hope to be sending the kind of vibrational energy that will help him reach his calling in life.
      Since Waynes calling in life has been helping other people, how great of a reward is it to have all those people he has helped, think and pray for his wellness. He now has the opportunity to help people who are diagnosed with cancer find a much deeper meaning to life, a thought everyone without cancer could also ponder. “With every adversity, every failure, every heartache, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill

      If I ever become famous, I will be willing to have people see my choices. But I can understand why someone would want complete privacy. I just want to go to cool celebrity parties!

      Merrill,
      I understand your frustration. This is a subject of deep thought and can be confusing to everyone.
      Think of it this way. Cancer is not a revelation of a single thought or action, but the culmination of thoughts and feelings over many years. Your loved ones may not have been thinking “give me cancer”, but may have been thinking and feeling in such a way that the combination of those thoughts and feelings triggered a sub-atomic level reaction that manifested in the creation and spreading of cancer. These thoughts and feelings, by the way, probably were not evident to you, just as your thought and feelings are not evident to anyone else, unless you tell them. It is a secret life that we get to decide to live right inside our own skin. No one in there right mind would ever wish for cancer, but the body is a physical manifestation of what we are thinking and feeling.
      I hope this helps you.
      Pacem.

      I’m not saying that growing old and declining into poor health is a given. I’m just saying that everything in the universe, the planets, the stars, our own sun, decays and dies. Our “souls” are eternal, but our bodies are not. In the end, we transition out of our bodies into something more.
      Please understand that I’m not trying to be argumentative. I just really do not understand this concept. I’ve had a number of people in my family die from cancer, and I can’t imagine any of them attracting it from the universe.
      I appreciate all of the GP community’s comments. This is a great ride!

      I don’t mind taking credit for the good things I attract so this is nice to read about not having to worry about the s**t that comes sometimes. I agree that living in fame might add pressure. Yet we are all the same really…

      I think the confusing part for people is the idea that we create everything. Cancer is a symptom created, not thrust upon someone. Now why a person aligns with it is part of their own personal journey. It can be a blockage, that manifests as “dis-ease” or it can be related to something else. In the end it is always a vibrational match to their offering. As I understand it, growing old and declining into poor health is not a given, but it is a wide spread belief.

      I’m not sure that I understand how cancer can be the result of some blockage of energy. Couldn’t it just be the result of our bodies growing older and decaying naturally? I mean, we all have to die of something, right?

      It always serves as a positive reminder that people are people, no matter if they are rich and famous, or poor and humble. We all have our warts.
