Law of attraction etiquette: answering questions

In the column on Law of attraction etiquette, I wrote about uplifting questions to ask others. But what about when you’re on the receiving end and someone asks, “How are you doing?” or “How is your project (debts, illness, search for a lover) going?” (I talked about "How old are you?" here.)

“How are you doing?” is easy. You can simply tell them about the good things going on in your life.

Sometimes, “How are things going?” can seem tougher, especially if you aren’t feeling particularly good about your project at the moment. It’s tempting to frown and talk about what’s “wrong,” but in terms of creating what you want, that doesn’t do you or the person asking any good.

Here are some things you can say that can make both of you feel good:

  • I’m thinking about ways to make it even better.
  • I’m focused on everything coming together at the perfect time.
  • The seeds I’ve planted haven’t sprouted yet, so I’m leaving them alone and focusing on other things.

Of course, it’s best to actually take the approach described in those responses.
