Action and Attraction – The Butterfly Effect

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!

    I loved this post. The very first time I heard about the butterfly effect, was when I watched the movie of the same name. All of a sudden, so many thing made sense in my life. Every action has an effect, for butterflies and humans too. Great post. Thank you!

    This kind of thing always makes me wonder about the effects we create with our attitudes in people we interact with at work and in our daily lives. I have noticed that when I’m uplifted, I find more people with good attitudes and I am pretty sure they create a positive butterfly efffect in others too. The same happens when I am troubled and cannot smile easily. I find people who are rude and angry. Like I said, it makes you wonder.

      I agree with you Scott. I believe this is related to the law of attraction, and what we sow we reap. And as we give it expands and creates butterfly effects.

    My cousin lives in Israel. Every morning he takes the same bus at the same time to go to work in Jerusalem. He’s very responsible and loves his job. He has just missed work twice in over 10 years. The first time was because his wife was going to have their second son, and the second time was caused by a butterfly effect, I think.

    On that day, he had the flu but wanted to go to work anyway. His wife asked him not to because she was coming up with the flu too, and she could not take the kids to school. So he decides to help and take both kids to school that day, but still wanted to make it to work a bit late, so he called his boss to tell him the situation and the boss said ok. Because of this, he did not take the bus at the usual time. It turns out this happened on a day that a a bomb attack targetted a bus in Jerusalem. He later found out that it was the same bus that he used to ride on every morning. There were over 20 people severely injured.

      Unbelievable, and then it is not. There’s no doubt in my mind that everything happens for a reason. In the case of your cousin, Joseph, the cascade of events created the butterfly effect to spare his life. I’m glad to hear that your cousin was not among the injured ones. He’s obviously got a mission to fulfil. Peace mini-heart

    I want to share something that happened in my family and that we are all grateful for the outcome.

    My mother had been invited to her friend’s wedding. She’d been preparing for the event for weeks because it was the wedding of her BFF. She went shopping for a beautiful gift for her friend and a nice gown for herself. Everything was going as planned, but when my mom got into her car to drive to the wedding that day, the car would not start. My sister and I were not home. We have three cars and keep the keys in a key hook in the garage, but there was no car left in the garage that day. If there had been a car, she would have taken it without going into the house.

    The only other person in the house was my 14 year old brother, who was playing Nintendo in the TV room upstairs. My mom went to say goodbye and told him there was food for him in the fridge. Then, she went downstairs to the garage. When the car wouldn’t start, my mom walked into the house to call a taxi but the cordless phone in the kitchen was not in the hook so she went upstairs to use the other phone. It was then when she found my brother passed out in the floor. My brother is diabetic and he had an episode of hypoglycemia. Had the car started, or if there had been another car in the garage, or if the cordless phone had been in the kitchen, she would have left without going upstairs and we could have lost my brother.

    This series of events changed the outcome. My mom called 911 and the paramedics were able to stabilize my brother and take him to the ER. We’re very fortunate to have Eddy with us.

      What an amazing turn of events, Jessy. Thank you so much for sharing. Happy to hear your brother is alive and well. Peace mini-heart
