EP 320: The Law Of Attraction Isn’t Real with Shanda Catrice
Y’all…you know I love a good stirring of the pot and that is what return guest Shanda Catrice came back on to do with me today. We’re digging into a topic that some folks will feel really defensive and protective of – the Law of Attraction. So as always, I invite you to stay curious and open as you listen.
Shanda’s big truth in this episode was that you don’t always have to know the answer. From there we got into why it’s important to take breaks from your personality, how everything in the Universe serves a purpose because if it didn’t, it wouldn’t exist, and how spirituality is technology.
We dug into some etymology – the context of words and how they’re used, specifically the word destiny–and we talked about surrender, freedom, change, resistance.
Then we spent a good chunk of time on the juicy unpacking of how the Law of Attraction is not a substantial Universal Law, the impact your destiny has on your ability to manifest things, cognitive dissonance, metaphysics, religious science, emotions and beliefs.
My guess is we’re going to get a lot of notes about this one, so find me on IG @elizabethdialto, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and share the episode to let us know what you think!
