"Tone-Deaf", and I catch myself there all the time. The awareness is the cure.
I caught up with a friend this morning who was getting ready for a very important phone conversation about a big contract. He was stressed out because he really NEEDED the money. I can certainly relate. I’ve been there, and I still find myself in that spot much more often than I would like. I asked him, "Doesn't the fact that you're worried about the money, yet don't have it, tell you anything?". He was silent. I literally watched his eyes change as he came out of the "Tone-Deaf" zone and agreed with me.
You're probably wondering why I call this the "Tone-Deaf" zone...
This just hit me recently so in case you're wondering, I am not a great singer, maybe not even good, but I'm better and I keep climbing the ladder. One day when I want it less and less it will come to me. Who knows? But I do know this:
If there is one thing you can do to improve your odds of attracting abundance, or something you desire, it’s to reduce the stress and put focus and energy on the positive outcome you want. You might be surprised how it can manifest in ways you couldn't even imagine. This relates to anything you want.
Sure, it’s tough to step back from your NEED and get into the space of happy anticipation and a bit of detachment from the outcome, which would be far more effective. It almost seems to me that you have to be very naive about the HOW. Let some, if not all of it go. The universe (or creator, whichever you go by) is ALWAYS listening and you are ALWAYS giving off energy.
Does it work? Not 100% of the time. But here’s something to think about:
How often did you NOT get what you wanted and a few years later were REALLY glad you didn’t? It’s funny how things work out sometimes. Maybe that ex of yours taught you something about loving yourself. Maybe that car was recalled or is no longer made. Maybe that possible business partner was just arrested for money laundering.
Maybe that’s not what you wanted to hear right now. But it’s something to keep in mind, if only for the sake of reducing the pressure in the moment - and that is what will help with attracting abundance! In fact, if it’s for your higher good, chances are pretty good that things work MUCH more smoothly when you do calm down, focus on the positive outcome, and look forward to it (or something even better).
Basically, this means it WILL work out when you don’t push the conclusion away. Stop being so TONE-DEAF and stressing about things. You're just pushing away what you want to happen. You must let go of worry and stress. The key is to let go of the worries because what you worry about you’re likely to attract.
My partner told me years ago that if I worried about something, I may or may not draw exactly what I worry about into my life. But, I will draw something along the line of my concern. And here’s the quote I remember verbatim (about the “something” I will draw): “Trust me, it will be adequate.” Adequate to live up to my worries, that is - not something I would want.
Consider this new phrase, and recognize when you're giving off this energy. You may be TONE-DEAF but the universe is certainly not.
