The Law of Attraction has been discussed, thought about, debated, wished for, dreamt about, and obsessed over in one way or another since Plato. I Googled the Law of Attraction and got this result: about 75,100,000 results (0.30 seconds). It was first seen in print as early as 1877 in Helena Blavatsky’s book The Secret Doctrine and later in the two best-selling books of all time, Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich and Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life. The movie The Secret brings The Law of Attraction to the big and little screens. People have a huge desire to have something more in their lives. What is also heartening is how so many of us have an awareness that there IS this possibility.
Esther Hicks says, “The Law of Attraction is responding to your thought, not your current reality. When you change the thought, your reality must follow suit. If things are not going well for you, then focusing upon what is happening now will cause the well-being to continue, but if there are things happening now that are not pleasing, you must find a way of taking attention away from those unwanted things.” If we were working together, you might hear me quote Access Consciousness® Founder, Gary Douglas in saying: “Your point of view creates your reality, your reality doesn’t create your point of view.”
I have researched the top ways to get the most from Law of Attraction. These are some tips I’ve found: (1) Focus on the positive; (2) shield from negative energy because it is so exhausting; (3) keep your goals in mind; and (4) using vision boards designed to help you visualize what it is you want.
What if there was a way to do Law of Attraction Differently? What if there was a way to choose that something more? Let’s look at three things to try today and see if things change right away: (1) Does the Law Work? (2) Language please, and (3) Choose for you.
Does the Law of Attraction really work? Well, yeah… (didn’t you just tell me how many hits on Google you just got Whitney?) Here’s an interesting point of view – we have 50,000 thoughts a day. Broken down that is 3,000 thoughts per hour, or 50 a minute. Of those 50,000 thoughts, 40,000 are “negative.” We just said The Law of Attraction works, right? Holy Cow Batman! If The Law of Attraction is responding to your thoughts, what are you attracting? What happens when you try not to think about something? The more you try not to think about it, the more you think about it. What if I said for the next 10 seconds, don’t think of pink elephants? You can think of anything else, just not pink elephants. What do you think about for the next 10 seconds?
Let’s play this out in a scenario using money. Using The Law of Attraction to attract money, we say positive affirmations, keeping our thoughts in the right vibration: My Positive Money Visions Are Coming True; Abundance Is Mine; My Income is Increasing Daily. Pick one and say it 10 times a day or say them each 10 times a day. Then life steps in. You get a call from your bank, or you wish your employer paid you more. Maybe the mortgage isn’t covered this month or it is, but you wish you had more clients. You have a budget. You have an argument with a family member about a bill. You wish you could go somewhere on vacation. How many of those thoughts were about your money problem? Let’s look at the affirmations. For a lot of people, when they say affirmations, they say it as a positive, meaning there is also a negative, a polarity. From the tips above you see: focus on the positive and shield from the negative. By affirming one you also get the other. Positive and negative require judgement and that takes away all choice and possibilities. Polarity puts you into resistance and reaction, if you have one you HAVE to have the other. If there is a positive money flow, there must be a negative money flow. What id there was just flow? In Access Consciousness®, our tools of choice are questions. Question create awareness, change, and possibilities. What questions can we ask here that would do money differently? What can I be or do today that will make money right away? What would it take to have money? What would it take to have money? What would it take to create more money than I can even imagine? Say one of the affirmations out loud then ask one of these questions out loud. What feels lighter, yummier, bubblier? Which feels like it creates more possibility? Instead of an affirmation, what if you chose a mantra? The mantra has no polarity, no judgement, and has allowance. Here is ours – All of Life Come to Us with Ease and Joy and Glory® (Glory meaning the exuberance of life). Try this 10 times a day.
Next – Language please. Not talking about swearing here! Gary Douglas says, “Be aware of being exact in how you speak your language.” He continues, “because exactly what you speak and think is what you’ll get.” One of the most counterproductive words in our lives to get what it is we would really like – is the word want. What Gary noticed is that words have energetic meanings or not. The word “want,” for example, historically has 27 meanings which mean “to lack” and just one that means “to desire.” Even though what’s written in dictionaries has been changed to reflect common usage of “want” to mean “desire,” that does not change the energetic meaning of the word. Want energetically means to lack. Whenever we say, “I want x,” we are correct, we lack it. Want to test it out for yourself? Try this: say, “I don’t want money” 10 times. At the end of saying it, do you feel heavier or lighter? It’s a law of the universe that what’s true for you will make you feel lighter, whereas what’s not true for you will make you feel heavier. If saying “I don’t want money,” makes you feel lighter, then that’s true for you. You don’t lack money. Have you ever noticed that people who actually have money rarely use the word “want”? They choose what they’ll have and say they’ll have it. The difference? They choose.
Another interesting word, goal. According to English Etymology, or a Derivative Dictionary of the English Language in Two Alphabets (Lemon, 1783), gaol was sometimes written as goal. When brought to America we kept the word as goal. A gaol is a prison or a place of confinement. What can we be here to choose differently? What if we had a target? What feels more expansive when you say it out loud? My goal is x. My target is x. If you have a target you have a space, you can go and beyond. If you have a goal, you have a box. What is true for you?
Finally, choose. If you are using The Law of Attraction to get what you want, you might want to consider, what is your point of view? Is your viewpoint that you are not – or do not have – what you are asking for? You need something brought in from the outside of you because you are missing something? When you have the point of view that you have to attract something to you so you can be it or have it, that means you have to make sure you are not the thing you are trying to attract, so you can get it… Instead of creating expansion in your life you create a contraction. Another interesting point of view in Access® is that we are all infinite beings. What if nothing was missing from you? What if you didn’t require anything from outside of yourself? What if all the things you did and said brought you to the point you are in your life you are now, os you can create the change you desire? What if all that is required is for you to step into being the you that you truly be? Just choose.
It IS an ask and you shall receive universe. When you first start to ask for something and you start to choose, it may take a little while in the beginning (2 weeks to 3 months). As you start to acknowledge the fact that you are actually creating things, then they start to happen faster until it is almost like breathing. It’s a snap of your fingers and it’s done. It just is. You just be. The fun part is, since you are the creator of your life, you can always ask another question and choose again. Whatever you created you can keep or change (even the parts that weren’t your smartest choice). How does it get any better than that?
As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, people have a huge desire to have something more in their lives. We are keenly aware that there is a possibility, we are magic, we can create what we desire. We are aware of the spark, the fire, the potency that lies within ourselves. All we have to do is choose. It IS your choice – would you like to be subject to immutable laws of reality which you can’t affect, or would you consider stepping beyond that into creating what you previously only imagined was possible? The choice is yours.
