Many people believe that the Law of Attraction says that if someone shows up in their lives, it’s because they attracted that person. I know that when I’m in a lousy mood and I get into my car, it sure seems that every bad driver and tailgater in the vicinity is in my lane. I’m irritated, they’re aggressive, and we are all resonating together. If you could “hear” our vibration, it would sound like a head-banging, heavy-metal rock song called “Get Out of My Way!”
But on that same road there are drivers who are tuned in to a different frequency. They’ve got “Take It Easy” playing on the car stereo. They’re smiling as all the angry drivers zip through the lanes and wear out their accelerators. These travelers let the others pass and give them no energy or attention.
The Law of Attraction has been misinterpreted by some to mean that we are actually acting as magnets, drawing in and repelling people and situations that perfectly match up with our vibration. This is a mechanistic view of how attraction and resonance works.
Like attracts like, so you will notice, approach, and interact with those you feel a connection to. However, you’re not personally responsible for everyone who is on the freeway today just because you chose to go for a drive. You, like everyone else, will always be surrounded by people who are angry and intense, and others who are calmly enjoying the ride. The Law of Attraction simply ensures that you’ll notice those vibrating at your level and overlook everyone else. So which song are you going to tune in to?
