The Law of Attraction works in many wonderful and mysterious ways. If you want to manifest a soul mate then you must first put yourself “out there” in order to meet people. If you want to manifest health, you have to pound the pavement and move your body. If you want to manifest prosperity then you have to place yourself in spaces that will offer appropriate opportunities.

Doors to transformation often happen through human connection and having “open” energy.

However, technology is now a very real distraction and detour for many people in society. Some people are so addicted to their phones that they have to check their notifications when their car stops at a red light! Even eye contact is way less common than it used to be at places like the checkout of a supermarket because people use the time to be on their phones.

The screen has become a block in our flow of energy.

I’m not saying technology or social media is a bad thing. After all, I met my husband on Twitter! I’m saying that the decline in genuine human connection and interaction can somewhat impair the results you are seeing manifest into your reality.

As we move through life it’s important to know if the energy we carry in our hearts and minds is either open or closed. For example,  I walked home from the gym yesterday and decided to greet and smile at everyone that I passed by. This is out of my comfort zone because I generally like to not say anything and I wanted to examine why. I’m an extrovert by nature and this doesn’t make sense why I close off since my energy is open.

The first person I encountered was an elderly gentleman that said “good morning” to me before I had the chance. I chirpily replied and kept walking. I felt seen, validated and uplifted. As insignificant as this may seem, I felt empowered.

The next person was a lady walking towards me. She was in her fifties or early sixties. We avoided eye contact until she was within a few yards of me. I could tell she wasn’t going to say anything unless I did. There was a mild sense of anxiety and awkwardness.

Do I say hi, do I pretend to be listening to music?

“Morning!” I said and smiled.

“Hi” she replied in a tone that seemed less than enthused. No smile, no light in her eyes, closed energy in that moment. 

The next lady walking towards me actually crossed the road to avoid saying hello. I could see her judging the distance about 5 house-lengths ahead of time. I felt concerned that she preferred to cross the road and avoid connecting, even just for a fleeting second.

Human connection, no matter how small, can have a great impact on our vibration and energy level. You never know what’s going on in someone’s day, so it is important not to make assumptions, but offering a kind smile or a greeting shows people that they aren’t alone and also reinforces that they are worthy.

Being generous of spirit impacts worthiness and keeps our hearts open.

We, as humans, tend to isolate ourselves when we don’t feel worthy. We say no to opportunities and gradually turn our backs on nurturing relationships. As we examine the value of human connection we remember that it’s inextricably linked to the results and enjoyment we see in our life on a daily basis.

I recently had a session and connected with parenting expert Shelly Lefkoe. She reminded me that children form their beliefs based on their parent’s actions. For instance, if a child sees you on your phone when they are talking to you, they will form the belief: “I am not worthy”.

This reminder is a powerful invitation to show up more in the present moment, put yourself “out there” more and not care so much what other people think of you because it’s none of your business.
