Job Loss and the Law of Attraction

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 143

Remember that old philosopher Karl Marx? Wasn't it he who said he wanted to "free the masses"? Well guess what folks? The masses have been freed! It has happened! In fact, it has been happening for quite a few years now as companies have merged, shifted and re-invented themselves in the face of technological change and economic instability. Thousands have been laid off with little financial recompense to accompany them, and the so-called freedom that Marx espoused has indeed been devastating for many who have been released. Yes, they have been freed from being strapped to the plow, but to their own shock and horror, the transition has been almost unbearable as they lost their homes, their self- esteem and their economic stability.

If any friend of yours has been experiencing such devastating loss, please tell them to take heart. Gather them in your arms and offer them all of the loving support that you can, because they can survive, no matter how bleak the day. History is rife with tales of adversities overcome and challenges mounted. And most of us can undoubtedly name times in our own lives when we have suffered great loss. Loss is an integral part of human life, and getting through loss actually builds strength of character. It may sound trite, and I am not meaning to minimize anyone's loss, but it is ever so true. It is in our adversities that we find our greatest strengths. And it is in our adversities that we find the courage to marshal our inner resources, to carry us onward and forward.

Voltaire had some very wise words to offer about the adversities of life:

"Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to quickly pass through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us."

From a Law of Attraction perspective, Voltaire is right on the mark. While experiencing great loss, the absolute worst thing anyone may do is give in to the black dog of depression, because sending out negative vibes will only beget more negativity, in various forms, whether it is a fight with your spouse, or a little fender bender.

In today's constantly changing job market, where pension plans have gone the way of the dinosaur, and owning a home is no guarantee of financial security, we must behave like chameleons, adapting and re-adapting as we change colors and re-invent ourselves again and again. And we can only do this by staying positive. This is really very good for us all. It forces us to assess who we are and what we want, and when we do this, we tap into the power of the Law of Attraction.

So if you are among those who are currently unemployed, take some time now to discover your own innate talents, traits and abilities because you may find yourself capable of doing something you would have never dreamed possible! And it may not only be something that you enjoy, it may also change the course of your whole working life for the better. Your job loss could end up being your best opportunity for a new way of living your life. It could be a blessing in disguise.

Keep going! Keep peeling off the layers of who you are and find your core, for it is there that you will find your strength, your courage and your fortitude. Courage does not always look bravely into the face of a lion. Courage is most often a foot soldier, putting one foot in front of another, day after day after day. Walk with courage through your fear. In fact, ignore your fear. When you are feeling afraid and anxiously uncertain, you are thinking of what you do not want, and attracting more of the same. Start thinking of what you do want and focus on it instead. Find out what you love to do and do it! You will be glad that you did!
