When Life Causes You To Want Something, Be Grateful!

There was a time when I thought I would be happy if all my problems would just go away forever. Everything seemed to be a bother, and I felt like life was a constant struggle. I thought that I had to find a way to solve all my problems once and for all, and I looked everywhere for a solution. I meditated, did yoga, kept fit, read books, and got a hold of every self-help book or video I saw. Yet, to my dismay, my problems didn’t disappear completely.

No matter what I did or achieved, I still had unfulfilled desires that I labeled as problems, or as “contrast.”  The striving for a life of no contrast was a pain. The harder I tried to have no contrast, the more I seemed to have. Sometimes I felt defeated and that I was a loser if I had problems to face in my life. Thankfully I came to new understandings about the Law of Attraction, and over time I gained a new perspective on the “problems” in my life and the positive function they serve.

As I understand it, we are created in the image of Source Energy. We are vibrational beings who are extensions of the Source from which we came. When we think, we send out energy to the Universe. Before we are born into a physical body, we are one with our Source, and there is no contrast…yes, NO CONTRAST! (This is what I was trying to achieve in this lifetime!) But as an extension of Source, living in a physical body on planet Earth, I am supposed to encounter things that I want…and that I don’t yet have. When I have “problems” or unfulfilled desires in my life, the Source that I came from GROWS in proportion to my asking. If I am sick, I have a problem; but through experiencing this sickness, I ask strongly for health, and vibrationally I send a signal back to myself as Source Energy. The part of me that is still Source responds immediately to my expanded idea of health, and literally becomes a new version of me with the new condition of expanded health. But, you might ask, how do I benefit from this if I am still sick?

When life causes you to ask for something better, or for a solution to a problem in your life, the greater part of you grows, becomes the expanded version, and begins calling you toward the new manifestation into physical reality. (You may want to read that last sentence again). You ask, Source answers by expanding fully into the new thing, and all you have to do is allow yourself to receive the new condition. Law of Attraction is the manager of all of this, so it is important to focus on the new desire rather than the lack of the new desire. (More on this later).

The main point of this post is that you will never be problem or contrast free in this lifetime. Instead of wasting time, as I did, trying to solve all your problems, be grateful for the contrast you experience. Give yourself credit for the expansion you have sent to your Source, and then get into a place to let it manifest into your experience on Earth. If you are not asking, you are not growing. Be grateful and appreciative for the contrast in your life. It gives you the push forward into new and amazing things. Let me know if this post makes any sense to you. I know it took me a while to hear it this way, so don’t worry if it takes you some time to think all this through too. Be Well, Marie-GP

      this post was right on time for me today! I totally get it and love the wording that you use. especially when you say, “begins calling you toward the new manifestation into physical reality”; what my “problem” is currently, is love. I have been in a string of “wrong” relationships and I know that it is only leading me to and teaching me what I am worth and what I deserve. and I am so ready!! I am grateful for these experiences. Thank you for your website. It has done more for me than you can imagine!!
