Why a Special Article About Teenagers and LoA?
I have been asked by several folks to write an article about the Law of Attraction (LoA) and teenagers because teenagers are different. Really? Well, yes, they are different. However, they are not different in the way you may think. First, teenagers are, for the most part, still learning about themselves and their world so they are less likely to reject a philosophy or idea such as LoA without first examining it. Put another way, teenagers are less set in their ways than those who are 30, 40 or 50 and therefore have fewer bad energy habits to unlearn.
However, this article is as much for those who have teenagers in the house as it is for teenagers themselves. You see, those with teenagers have a special responsibility that is sometimes overlooked – the responsibility to be in alignment with Source and serve as an example. Teenagers are often looking for inspiration (not motivation) to guide them and are, among other things, paying close attention to the role models around them.
For Those with Teenagers
Everyone should aspire to stay in alignment with Source (often referred to as being centered or in touch with one’s inner self), but for those with teenagers, this is particularly important. Although they may seem to not be paying attention, teenagers watch their world (you in this case) closely and often form their foundational patterns from what they see and hear. If you are negative and blame everything on external forces, they won’t be impressed by your good words about having a positive outlook and being the creator of your own reality. Motivational words fall heavily to earth when spoken by an uninspired teacher. However, inspired actions from a place of alignment will make an impression that will serve your teenager for a lifetime. You don’t have to be perfect, but you do have to be consistent and in alignment with who you really are.
You are in a very powerful position as you can see the world more clearly than those who are older and may have fallen into poor energetic patterns. Trust yourself, trust your feelings, trust the Universe. Life is not hard – life is made hard by the resistance we offer. When I was growing up in the 1960s adults poked fun at the flower children who were fond of saying “take it easy man,” and “just go with the flow.”
However, I’ve learned that the power was with those enlightened young people and “going with the flow” was an expression for not resisting the Universe and enjoying the ride. In fact, I’ve found joy is the key to manifesting anything and everything you desire. You are at a point in your life where you are mature enough to form your own opinions but still young enough not to be blinded to the amazing power of joy. Listen to those who make sense to you but listen much harder to those who make your heart sing, even if their words seem strange. That singing you hear in your heart is your guidance system and it is both more powerful and more accurate than your logical thought.
Lastly, when you feel anger, sorrow, or fear, know that your guidance system is telling you that you are out of alignment with who you really are. Stop, take a breath and center yourself. Remember who you really are and recall that you create your reality. Then redirect your thoughts away from whatever caused you to fall out of alignment. Don’t push against it, just put it out of your mind and focus on a thought — any thought — that brings a smile to your face and joy to your heart. If that sounds silly enough to make you smile, then you get it and so does your inner self.
