The Law of Attraction and Being â€œon the Vergeâ€

My cousin Ramona tells me sheâ€™s frustrated with being â€œon the vergeâ€ of so many things, including being on the verge of walking again 9 months after a motorcycle accident. Sheâ€™s also on the verge of reclaiming Â herself Â and getting her life back, and her words strike a chord Â with me.
The phrase, â€œon the verge,â€ has a lot of connotations, some of them sexual but the pictureâ€™s much bigger than that. When you are â€œon the vergeâ€ of having your life the way you want and you have to wait and wait and wait and satisfactionÂ Â gets Â postponed Â again Â and Â again, well, Â of course youâ€™re going to be in tears! Itâ€™s the promise that never seems to be fulfilled and itâ€™s full of frustration.
You know what you want, you know the next great and wonderful thing thatâ€™s coming into your life, and then the carrot gets moved a little farther down the road and after Â a Â while, Â unless Â youâ€™re persistent, Â you Â tire Â of Â the chase and simply give up. Or you start to doubt that the reward is really out there after all.
Giving up, doubting, losing momentum, Â questioning yourself…those are all ways the Law of Attraction actually shoves away the things weâ€™re working so hard to receive.
If youâ€™re using the Law of Attraction to bring wonderful things into your life, you must stay â€œon the verge.â€ That is, live in that moment of being totally focusedÂ on the outcome, Â anticipating Â it, excited about it, Â canâ€™t wait for it to happen because itâ€™s inevitable. Everything in your world hones in, focuses intently on what it is thatâ€™s next and thatâ€™s where your attention is. The best thing in the world you can do to bring to you Â what Â you want is to maintain that sense of canâ€™t-wait-excitement. Giving Â up, doubting, kicking yourself, wondering if itâ€™s really going to happenâ€”all those things just push it away and sometimes kill the necessary spark.
So get on the verge and believe itâ€™s going to happen, but donâ€™t ever get used to being on the verge and tire of it. Enjoy the moment and go after it with every spark of energy you have.
