Have you heard of the Law of attraction?
It became very popular with the book and then the movie that followed called “The Secret”. Unfortunately, the movie had to choose which parts of the book to include and which parts to leave out. If you only watched the movie you would not get a full understanding of the whole concept of the Law of Attraction and for many of those who have tried to follow its concepts, they have been very disappointed.
The full idea is described in the book “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill and an even earlier book “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen. This title was coined from the phrase in the Bible “As a man thinketh, so is he” Proverbs 23:7, so the basic idea has been around for a very long time.
The Law of Attraction is based on a premise that “like attracts like, “so that when you think a thought, you will also be attracting like thoughts to you.
Thoughts are said to be magnetic, to have a frequency of their own. As you think, your thoughts are sent out into the universe where they magnetically attract all like things which are on the same frequency. In short, everything sent out returns to the sender –– oneself.
The authors of the Secret liken each human being to a human transmission tower transmitting a frequency by means of their thoughts. Therefore, if you want to change anything in your life, you are advised to change the frequency of your energetic signals by changing your thoughts.
Inherent in this idea is the concept that your current thoughts are creating your future. What you think about the most and focus on the most will appear in your life. As the book puts it, “your thoughts become things”; they become your reality.
It is clear that the authors are not just talking about the words you use to speak to yourself, although these are considered very important. But also to the feelings that accompany your words, your thoughts, and your beliefs. The latter is seen as strongly influencing your basic energy vibration.
A simple example of how the Law of Attraction works is the chair you’re sitting in right now. A designer had to dream up the design of that chair. A draftsperson then rendered it as a drawing. An engineer had to specify the materials, and a manufacturer then turned that vision into a concrete reality.
However, the concrete reality of the chair began life as a thought in the mind of a particular person. Had the designer not had that thought, and not pursued the realization of the dream, the chair would not have taken concrete form. We could still be sitting on rocks!!!
In the same way as the existence of the chair you’re sitting in, many of the circumstances of your life began with thoughts. Both the things you want, and the things you don’t want.
Your beliefs predispose you to certain experiences.
Neuroscientists are discovering that, in order to perceive something, you must first acquire the neural wiring that allows you to do so. If your neural wiring says that it is not possible, that you are asking too much, that you are not allowed to think like that, then you will never dream of the chair.
In EFT we say, “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”.
Thoughts become tremendously important. We will attract into our lives what we think about, whether that something is what we want, or what we are trying NOT to have.
Obviously, we want to do everything in our power to change our negative frequencies to positive ones so that we do not attract the negative consequences.
The question that I think is left out of The Secret is the “HOW”
How are we going to go about changing a negative thought, and negative frequency to a positive one?
Simply deciding doesn’t work that well for most people most of the time. Just because we know something is not what we want, or even knowing what we do want, doesn’t change our feelings and beliefs.
For example, we might be wanting to have a wonderful exciting and loving partner. We can know exactly what type of person we would like to spend the rest of our life with. We can name characteristics that are important to us, but we can struggle to attract that person.
Our internal thoughts, our subconscious says “I’m not lovable, there are not good men out there, who would want me, I’m not good enough for this amazing guy that I would like”.
Some of these thoughts might be internal and you are not aware that is what you are thinking, but some of them you will know, and hear yourself say, but you honestly believe that they are true. Your neural wiring doesn’t allow you to see that these thoughts are false. You cannot see that the world is full of amazing men who are just waiting for you to see yourself as they see you.
Making money is the same. The world is full of opportunities to make money. There has never been more prosperous time than it is right now. There has never been so much money floating around, so many great ways to attract money. But we are told daily that the world is going broke, that disaster is around the next corner and you will never be able to make it in business while things are looking so bad.
What are you programmed to believe?
Whatever you believe is what you will attract.
NO matter how many times you say to yourself, “I am a money magnet, wealth is coming to me, I have an amazing business, and a wonderful partner”; if you do not believe it in your subconscious then it cannot happen.
This amazingly simple and easy to learn tool, rewires the neural pathways and changes how we think and feel.
We can find the old unhelpful beliefs and thoughts and clear them to transform our future.
Then we can put the power of the Law of Attraction to work, and attract all that we desire.
