Trying to bargain for a better deal, whether it’s at a garage sale, car dealer, real estate office, or flea market is called haggling. How you haggle can have a big effect on the way the Law of Attraction affects you and your life. There’s nothing inherently wrong with haggling. At its most basic, it’s just negotiating over the price you’ll pay for a service or product.
However, going about haggling in the wrong way can cause an energy imbalance. Intention is everything, when it comes to the way the Law of Attraction functions in your life. The way you think and feel, and the intentions you harbor when doing anything at all are responsible for the kind and quality of outcome you’ll get in the end.
In the case of haggling, intentions will decide if you’re using the Law of Attraction to benefit both parties in the situation, or causing an imbalance to occur. Whenever you buy something, sell something, give something or receive something, you’re exchanging energy with the other person or business. Whenever the kind or quantity of energy you exchange isn’t about equal, you’ll have created an imbalance.
This might not seem like a problem, except that the universe is looking for balance in everything. If your transaction is imbalanced, it will look for balance somewhere else. There’s a good chance it will happen where and when you least expect it.
Here’s an example, to help demonstrate this kind of energy exchange: Pretend that you’re looking through a flea market or yard sale, and you see something you want. It’s priced at twenty dollars, but you’d like to have it for less. Before negotiating with the seller, you must pay careful attention to your intentions. If you try to get a better value than you give to the seller, you’ll create an energy imbalance. By effectively attempting to pay less than you think the item is worth, you’ll detract from the energy exchanged with the seller. At this point, the universe will try to create balance.
You could find yourself on the losing end of another transaction. In other cases, the item you buy with an energy imbalance could be stolen or broken without warning. This does not in any way mean that haggling is always bad. It can be beneficial if you think that the price is too high and you want to bring it back down to the item’s value. In this case, haggling actually creates a balance in the energy exchange, rather than an imbalance.
The most important part of any transaction is your intention. Whenever you try to cheat other people by getting more than you give, you’ll ultimately find that the scales are not balanced, and you’ve lost somewhere else. Striving to make sure that the transactions are fair for everyone means that you’ll be able to create a beneficial energy flow, both for you and for the people that you’re making deals with.
