This is the man who I was totally obsessed with almost every day for an entire YEAR. I was enthralled by the wisdom spewed forth from this charismatic young Brit. Before, I had always thought YouTube was just full of clips of cats on skateboards, music videos and immature humour for teens. I had no idea it was a treasure trove of audio books, useful how-to videos and most fascinatingly, vlogs. Everyday people sharing their knowledge.
I have mentioned a few times a new friend who has come into my life since I began blogging. The circumstances surrounding how she suddenly appeared and who she is, left me in very little doubt that we were drawn together through the law of attraction. In fact, I would say she is a major reason why I now believe in it 100%. For a while now, I had asked the universe to send me someone who I could talk to about what I’d been going through the past 18 months. Someone who understood this pathway, was either going through the same spiritual enlightenment or was already experienced in this way of living. But I hadn’t met anyone who really understood what I was going through. Then, just a few weeks into blogging, I received a direct message on Twitter from a girl I recognised very well indeed…………..
It’s been 18 months since I started on a path of self development in an attempt to radically change my life into something special, rather than the savage, empty mess it had become. I call it my spiritual awakening because that seems to be the term used most often by people who have experienced the same startling upheavals. Here are the 10 biggest changes which occurred in my life during this period:
Drug overdose deaths in the US have reached record highs and many of them are from legally prescribed medication. Russell Brand takes a look at why this could be in his YouTube series “The Trews” (True News). This ties in well with one of the key messages I try to get across on this blog: meds are NOT the answer and never will be, to anxiety or depression. All pain comes from a much deeper level.
The Secret often gets a bad rap these days. It seems to be fashionable to say that it doesn’t go into enough details about the law of attraction and that this gives the impression that all you have to do is ask for something, do a few visualisations and you will get whatever you want. So I thought I’d read it and see if that was the case!
Still don’t believe in all this law of attraction, woo-woo garbage? Then maybe these geezers will persuade you! Some of the greatest and most famous people in history, spanning a period of around 4,000 years. Artists, politicians, businessmen, writers, sportsmen, singers, poets, scientists, leaders, psychologists and philosophers all with vastly differing talents but with the exact same message; there is a higher power that responds to our thoughts. If we use that power correctly, by thinking positively, we can create the life that we desire – whatever that may be. They understood that our internal thoughts, emotions, beliefs, mindset, create our external reality.
I keep hearing from people that they can’t help what they are thinking. That it’s not their fault they can’t be in a happy place. That they can’t just choose to be positive. But is any of that true? Can we choose our thoughts? Speaking as someone who had anxiety and overcame anxiety I feel I’m in a reasonable position to make an unbiased judgement. My initial opinion would be that no, we can’t choose our thoughts. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t choose to be positive. It doesn’t mean you can’t choose to at least try to move towards being happier. Let me explain!
Here’s what you need to understand about getting what you want using the law of attraction. It’s not about whether it MIGHT happen. It’s not about whether it COULD happen. It’s not even about whether it WILL happen. You have to act as though it HAS happened! The only way to do this is to FAKE it. Remember; your subconscious mind (which controls 95-99% of what you do) can’t distinguish between a lie and the truth. It’s totally unbiased – it takes everything as fact. So when you focus on debt and illness and worry, that’s reinforcing this reality to your subconscious mind, whether you have those problems or not. When you visualise yourself surrounded by abundance, that’s what your subconscious sees as the NOW, real-time, the truth.
