The Law Of Attraction
This law has been discussed for decades and has always faced scepticism along with acceptance. I myself was a sceptic and believed I knew the facts with my schooling and interests being in science. I was always of the belief that thoughts can have very little influence over anything outside our heads. You don’t have to look too far to find someone who is willing to film themselves mocking this law by proving that thought cannot manifest an object. I now look back at that scepticism and realise that it was the easy answer and meant that I could put it to one side and move on.
How did this work out for me? Well lets just say that I’m glad I have an open mind otherwise I would still be using my thoughts to justify my beliefs and living the safe controlled life following the crowd towards mediocrity.
Being part of the MKMMA course has allowed me to understand the ‘Law Of Attraction’ without having to give up on my scientific mind wanting to explore every detail.
Its not magic or a kind of voodoo whereby we can think of a thing and it will appear. I wish it was as I like a quick fix as much as anyone else. Its much like a network marketing business where you first have to suspend your current belief to open up the possibility that you don’t yet have all the answers. Once you do this you can view the components for what they are rather than comparing them to your current belief.
I have looked at the theories and read the books, I have even seen a film on the idea. A lot of information has allowed me to gain an understanding that I can live with for now in the hope that I can gain more with time. I truly believe that what we think about can manifest itself in our lives and I have the experiences to back it up. A lot of the evidence can be disregarded by anyone wishing to be a sceptic with phrases such as ‘confirmation bias’ or ‘self selecting of positive reports’. This is fine as we are all free to think as we wish and I’m sure anyone in these camps is living a life finding scepticism, superiority and maybe even hatred wherever they go and in their own way proving the law of attraction working perfectly.
I’m finding that with a more directed positive attitude I can find good things in my life with ease and while its true they may have been there anyway by experiencing them I’m living a richer more fulfilled life than otherwise. By expecting better outcomes they will always appear as the law works perfectly either way so why choose the negative?
Any event in life is perceived by us in a certain way and if somebody else experiences the same event they may well have a different perception of that same event. Take two people watching the same football match almost every hard tackle will have one set of fans applauding and the other saying foul play.
A positive person (attracting success) losing a business opportunity will see room for growth, new opportunities or a change of direction while a predominantly negative person (attracting failure) will be saying this always happens to me or finding excuses or blame. Which person will do the best in time, which would you rather be, which will find a way to be successful? It’s not voodoo it’s obvious and it’s a choice we all have. We have a thought process ingrained in us already which we are living our lives by so it’s happening anyway we can just choose to do it differently, if we want to.
My thoughts on the law are only the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to it and I’m enjoying the process of finding and understanding much more about why I do what I do as this is helping shape a different future.
