I am wondering what other people’s thoughts are on why the opposite happens when you say something you believe to be concrete?
A common example: I never get sick. – and you get a bad flu soon after.
Or I would completely lose it if (insert terrible situation here) and it happens and you see that you CAN cope and live through it.
Is the universe taking it as a challenge? Could we perhaps use it to our advantage? How?
New to the site and looking forward to hearing from the community! :)
Haha…You can not in any real way take advantage of the universe.
This only shows how you believe that you are something separate from it.
You are not , once you see that whatever happens needs to happen
you can be at peace. One can not command life a certain way…
but going in the direction of life is a huge relief and great joy :) !
I saw a qoute somewhere saying that there is a secret power in keeping you desires discreet or something of that sort. What I come to believe since then is that when you express something out loud. Like a goal of some sort, the desire automatically shifts from doing something for yourself to do it for someone else. That in itself makes us loose energy towards that goal and then the people you usually say it to don’t really give a shit so then you lose more energy. But that is a little different from what you were saying. For that I agree with Luminos. Stating something like that gives resistance to the natural flow of all things. We should impose our will on stuff we can’t control. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction :)
