If you’ve been visiting this blog for a while and/or studying the law of attraction, you are aware of the fact that your actions -no matter how small- are in direct correlation to the results you get on your daily life. The physical laws of our universe apply to everything and everyone; in other words, you get what you put out!
It may be hard to believe at first, but once you’ve realized that we’re all part of the same energy (as explained by Stuart Wilde in the video I shared with you here, a couple of weeks ago) then, everything starts making sense.
The term “Butterfly Effect” was coined by Edward Norton Lorenz, American mathematician, meteorologist, and pioneer of the chaos theory. The term refers to the effects that minor actions such as the flapping of the wings of a butterfly can have in the weather, even if this flapping happened several weeks earlier. As a matter of fact, it is said that if a butterfly flaps its wings at just the right moment in time somewhere in Brazil, it can set off a cascade of atmospheric events that may cause a hurricane as far as China a few weeks later. According to Lorenz, this is the reason that long term weather forecasts are non-sense.
From the metaphorical viewpoint, we can determine how one action or another can render very different results. If the butterfly had flapped its wings a mili-second later, the hurricane perhaps wouldn’t have happened. Taking this to the personal level, the small actions that you consciously or unconsciously take part on, can have significant effects in your life, the lives of those around you, and even in the environment at large.
“Since you get more joy out of giving to others,
you should put a good deal of thought
into the happiness that you are able to give.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
If that made you wonder and ponder, I’d like to challenge you today to focus entirely about exuding just the energy that you want to attract into your life. Remember that giving and receiving is a cycle, one with the power to create abundance in your life.
If you want laughter and happiness, CREATE IT through your actions. If you want compassion, go out and be compassionate toward others less fortunate than you. If you want to be understood, be understanding of other people. Listen to them, look at their lives and put yourself in their shoes. Do it selflessly and from the heart.
So, give away whatever you want today. Then, pay very close attention as to how your attitude and demeanor act like a mirror in your life. You can start noticing things right away or – like in the Butterfly Effect – a few days or even weeks later. One thing I assure you… you will be amazed at the results you begin to produce.
What are your thoughts in regard to the Butterfly Effect in your personal life? Have you had an experience that you’d like to share? Thanks for contributing to the blog!
