I too watched the Dateline report about the girl who was mistaken for a dead girl and was fascinated by it. There were so many lessons to learn. I think that it is so amazing that once we have a belief we will always look for things that support our belief and rationalize away things that don't support what we believe. And there were many examples in this story. The parents were told that it was their daughter that was in the hospital bed and they believed that. When they noticed that her teeth were different, they simply said, "how odd the the accident changed her teeth." Then when she could identify everyone in a picture of her and her friends they said, "that proves that our girl is getting better." Then when she said the phrase "false parents" they again dismissed that as a lingering effect of the accident. To me, that is what the law of attraction is all about because what we believe becomes our reality, and if we want to change our reality, we have to change what we believe, EVEN WHEN IT IS OUR NATURE TO LOOK FOR THINGS THAT SUPPORT WHAT WE ALREADY BELIEVE. In my case for example. My greatest desire is to be married. But I have a deep seated belief that "all the good ones are taken." And everywhere I go I find attractive MARRIED women to support that believe. Even though logically I know that they can't ALL be "taken," I seem to be blind to only those things that support my deep seated belief. Anybody got any pointers on how to change what I believe?
