Beyond the "Law Of Attraction"
Loosely defined the “Law” is simply – Like Attracts Like – which all sounds very nice simple and easy which it is and yet isn’t. Examples such as “The Rich Get Richer” and “The Poor Get Poorer” are offered as ready demonstrations of the law at work and already we feel a little excited and set to business.
“Oh, so all I have to do is think rich thoughts and I’ll get rich? Cool. I’ll think about winning the lottery and using all that money well and wisely. Sorted”
So there you are all happy and excited about your coming winnings until lottery day arrives and sure enough you don’t win.
“Ummmm, ok, well maybe that was a little ambitious I’ll just visualise cheques in the mail then.”
The days/weeks pass but no cheques.
How can this be? I’m visualising etc. but its not working, rubbish law if you ask me…!
So this is the snag “The Law Of Attraction” applies to your whole vibrational self, your sub conscious as well as your conscious self and to varying degrees all of us are unaware of much that is going on with us vibrationally and energetically. Its not just as simple as dreaming of money, cars, houses etc. Learning more about who we really are to ever greater levels is what will bring us into ever greater alignment with the workings life and allow us to use “The Law Of Attraction” more effectively and consciously.
Well the question really is what do you truly want? Lots of money or to really feel truly free, loved, happy and fulfilled? I suggest the latter, financial wealth may help but its not the solution to ending our personal insecurities. The media is full of examples of very wealthy and famous people who clearly aren’t especially happy or fulfilled in spite of their apparent financial, career or business success; money alone is obviously not the answer.
Why don’t you feel free, loved, happy and fulfilled? Because this happy state is blocked by some degree of anxiety almost constantly. Not to the level of panic attacks necessarily but just a simple mild un-ease or dis-ease on many levels. Your partner may leave or be unfaithful, you may lose your job, have an accident, be struck by lightning, have a heart attack, who knows, all manner of disasters and setbacks may blight your life. Life is scary you rationalise, you’ve every reason to feel a little nervous. This is the bottom line – Fear Doubt and Worry – lower our attraction point.
The truth is that the prime desire to win the lottery is because you feel anxious about life and it is this underlying feeling of anxiety that is your true attraction point in the example above, not your good feelings about the money you wish to receive. Otherwise you probably would win the lottery, or more likely still, barely even consider the lottery at all because in your new found peaceful state of being you’d simply and naturally allow life to flow and support you regardless.
Life is only scary because that is how we habitually react to the challenges of life. The real task and “Attractor Factor” is to connect ever more deeply to the consciousness within us that truly knows “All Is Well”. Once we feel that then “All Is Well” even if the outer circumstances of our lives may currently appear different. That way we cease reacting to life challenges fearfully and instead respond consciously, clearly and courageously.
But how do I do that?
Make the choice, recognise that this is what you really want. Ask God, The Universe, Life, whatever fits, to give you even a glimpse of inner peace and practice that, and keep on practising. What would it be like to feel totally at ease with life? I suggest Eckhart Tolle author of the
Yes, we need to practice positive thinking and visualising of how we’d like our lives to be trimmed with material splendour but only to the extent that that truly raises our vibration to a level that feels deeply connected to all that is and thus feels peaceful, free and easy. Initially this may only occur in the briefest glimpses and spiritual “highs” but slowly, step by step ever greater ease of feeling will grace our days even if at times we still experience challenges financially or otherwise. Times such as these simply help us to build our faith, trust and composure, exercise our spiritual muscles, review our blockages and also allow us to recognise just how far we have come. We experience calm in the midst of the storm.
