To Push or to Pull?

Posted on February 3, 2013

How often do we find ourselves pushing for certain things in life when with a little shift in attitude, a twist of consciousness and a swing in the right direction we can actually, ‘pull’ or attract the things we need quite easily.

Learning to recognize the things we need to push away or pull towards us in our life, takes time, attention and focus.  In fact, normally we push where we need to pull and pull where we need to push.  When dieting for example, we push away certain foods from the body, instead of pulling the right foods towards us that will help to eliminate the toxins and fats.  Or, in our neediness we push to make a relationship work, which results only in us pushing away the other person, rather than pulling them towards us with genuine love and a little extra care and patience.

If you find yourself pushing too hard to achieve things in life it means you are definitely not in the flow of the drama.  In fact you are paddling against the current, which can be very taxing on the mind and body.  This does not mean however, that you should not persist or persevere.  Knowing just when to hold on to something and when to let it go is an art that comes with time and experience.

When the consumer markets are pushing too many products at us, it’s important to be able to discriminate between the want and the need.  Their pushing their wares onto us, does not mean that we need to pull them towards us!  Learn to discern clearly and you will discover that there is very little you have to pull towards you; with the right intention, whatever you need will come in front of you.

Very often harried parents will use the strategy of pushing things away from their children such as: “don’t do this”, “don’t do that”, “don’t sit there”, etc.  If the pull strategy was employed instead, the parent would lovingly encourage, build confidence and help the child to develop a strong sense of self-respect.  In this way the parent will gain respect and authority and the child will learn for him or herself to make better choices.

And when it comes to the subject of spirituality, instead of grappling to push away the aspects of ourselves that we don’t like, it’s much more effective to pull towards yourself the truth of who you are: Love, Light, Peace and Joy.  When we focus on the negativity within us we then give it even more energy and it takes an even greater hold over us.  When we switch on the light and self-realise our inner beauty power, and potential, then the darkness will evaporate.

It’s time… to stop pushing and to draw towards you the things you really need in life.  What you resist persists therefore let go of the struggle…  and invite abundance into your life.
