It has now been a few weeks, and I have finished reading Power vs. Force. Though I am done reading the text, I feel like the lessons learned are living breathing entities that pop up randomly in life. There are things that I can’t seem to place, but I feel like they are true depictions of things that one couldn’t possibly understand without context.
What is the Law of Attraction?
Well, I really didn’t know what to call it or what it was until I started hearing of the idea more and more–ironically enough.
Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on
There are times in everyone’s life where they want something or they begin to desire something out of life, and then the thing that they are recently focused on starts popping up everywhere. We think that surly everyone is now chasing the thing that we wanted, but not stopping to realize that the thing we are more recently obsessed with was there all along.
Some of us are very familiar with this feeling or concept. For those who didn’t know what to call it, you’re welcome.
Why is this important?
If you listen to any motivational thought leaders today, they will tell you to call out what you want from the universe. Once you call it out, the subconscious in you will begin to put a plan in motion to make sure that you work hard to get that thing that you have taken the time to claim.
The goal is to define what you want as clearly as possible, put it in writing, and take on new habits to transform your mindset.
More recently, I been the subject of this life experiment and I feel as though the ship is steering itself in the right direction. Now I am not saying that I have it all figured out, but the fact that I have begun to shape out a clear vision as to what I want, the how is working itself out.
It still feels like a mystery, but the thing that I have uncovered is that I am more driven now out of obligation to keep up with my dream. Stretching yourself out of your comfort zone takes one to heights that they never thought they could accomplish because of a limiting mindset.
How does the Law of Attraction hold power?
To answer this question, we have to unpack all of the powerful elements involved in aspiring and positive conceptualizing.
Map of Consciusness
According to Dr. Hawkins, the below are life-views that resonate above 200 on level of energy (anything above 200 is considered to be powerful enough to be life altering). The levels below the listed are life-views such as anger, jealousy, hatred, etc.
Positivity is powerful
Putting this into context, once a person begins to experience success in a thing that they have set their mind to, they begin to feel the powerful drivers above. Success is a positive goal, so it makes sense that focusing on the positive and small wins make one feel as though the bad isn’t so bad.
On the other hand, if one is to get caught in the trap of comparison, then you will see a different outcome all together. Resonating at the lower power levels can put someone in the perpetual state of never evolving, For instance, if you had a family history that outlines a ceiling of potential and you don’t believe that you can get passed, then you will never break through the ceiling. Not breaking through the barriers of your trappings will lead one to become angry due to circumstance, jealous of those at higher levels, and possibly violent because you are willing to take things that you don’t feel that you can work towards.
Then you see examples of those that came from nothing to something, got it out the mud, or started from the bottom now you’re here…
If you were to dive deeper into their mindset, you will probably see factors that helped them to resonate at a higher power level such as the idea that a new life is feasible, they are hopeful through all external doubt and circumstance, or they have been exposed to their desired goal so now they have the wisdom to know that there is something better that they are destined for.
There are times when you feel like things are falling into place, and I feel like this is a combination of the Law of Attraction and the power of positivity. When it happens, it may not happen HOW you thought it would and the path may not be what you foresee, but the destination that you were supposed to arrive at is right on point.
There is a lot to unpack here, but I just wanted to jot a few thoughts down to help evoke thought in anyone that reads.
