So you just delivered a snarky comment to someone. And you realized–just as the words left your mouth—that it was a harsh thing to say. But out it went, along with the dark energy attached to it. And you know, dammit, that the Law of Attraction is going to start doing its thing: that snarkiness is coming right back to you.
The Law of Attraction doesn’t care what the intent is, whether it be positive or negative. It’s going to return to you what you send out.
You send out love, then love comes back to you.
You send out a smile, then smiles will be returned to you.
You send out kindness, then kindness is presented to you.
And guess what?
You send out snarkiness, back it comes.
So what do you do when you realize that just a little bit too late?
Interactions with others are simply mirrors of ourselves. Any action you perform, whether it be word, deed or intent, is coming back to you with similar energy.
We’re taught that the bad guy always gets caught in the end, and that he rightfully suffers for his actions. He may get shot in the name of justice, or he may get unmasked, like in Scooby-Doo, but he always “gets what’s coming to him.”
Even Hollywood gently nudges us to fortify remembrance of this basic law.
But you don’t need to be shot for your negative comment. Although, similar energy will be returning to you according to the Law of Cause and Effect (karma), your recognition of your action is a huge step forward in getting yourself back into balance.
Your expectations about what those repercussions will look like are up to you. Do you think you need to be shot for your nasty comment? Maybe you’ve got some self-worth issues to review. Expecting the worst of “what’s coming to you” is setting yourself up for a potent retaliation that probably doesn’t justify the crime.
Consider another approach when contemplating the backlash from a negative action:
- Recognize that your actions or words were not in true alignment with the Best You.
- Remember that you are human, and that these experiences occur for growth purposes.
- Apologize not only to the recipient of your ugliness if possible, but also to yourself for any excessive self-flagellation about the incident.
- Get yourself laughing as quickly as possible in order to increase your frequency.
We came to Earth to grow, and being awake does not mean that the growth experiences will end.
Yet your awareness of any non-loving actions, as well as the knowledge of karma, allows you to minimize the backlash, and sets the foundation for a better You, next time.
