Moving Beyond the Law of Attraction
“A man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.” Bhagavad Gita
Have you ever heard of the Law of Attraction? Most of us have these days. It’s something trendy that helps draw people into a spiritual path. There’s nothing wrong with believing in it. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with believing in anything that helps you feel good or better than you used to feel. I’m just going to offer a different perspective.
I say to you that there is nothing to attract. Everything you need and want is already within you. You may ask, how can this be true. Since we are all Divine, all possibilities already exist within us. At any given moment, it’s for us to decide what we want to experience. It’s not a matter of attracting something to us. Think of it in terms of active versus inactive. Whatever we are experiencing now in the present moment, we are doing because we have activated that possibility from within us.
By focusing our attention on what we want or don’t want over and over, we are activating this from consciousness to the point it manifests in our physical experience. If we want to experience something different, we need to set our intention and refocus our energy on that over and over again. We need to make sure we give as much or more attention to what we want so we can take those possibilities from an inactive state to an active one. This can be difficult for some of us at times, but thinking thoughts that align with our intentions is kind of like a muscle. Those thoughts will become stronger the more we practice thinking them. That part of the brain will actually grow the more we think a particular thought. That’s why it’s important to stalk our thoughts, both positive and negative, so we are creating more of what we want not what we don’t want.
Imagine how much easier it is to activate what we want when we align feelings, words, and actions to match our intentions and thoughts. Because each of us is the creator, getting what we want is merely a shift in where we focus our attention. Let’s use our intention as a homing beacon. At any given moment, we should ask ourselves if what we are thinking aligns with what we want and if it doesn’t we can literally cancel that thought and replace it with a new thought we prefer more. It sounds easy, but to create a new habit like this, it takes practice. I’d much rather practice what I want than continue to get more of what I don’t want. What about you? Let’s focus on what we want together in the New Year!
