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.
So you’ve “tried” this law of attraction malarkey and nothing happened, right? All a loada bollocks innit? But what if you were doing it wrong? I’ve come across many people who seem to do all the right things. They visualise, they have vision boards, they say that they believe it will happen…..”but where is my shit?” Here’s the problem: “Ask , Believe, Receive” is the wrong way to go about it! This is the most common phrase I see related to the law of attraction. It’s handy, short, catchy – hell, it even rhymes for your convenience! But taken at face value, it’s WRONG. And as most people tend to skim the fine print and don’t read the full details they end up thinking all they have to do is ask for something, believe it will come and then wait to receive it. It’s time for some truths folks!
Do you think the illnesses in your body are totally out of your control? Do you believe that your genes are to blame for all your health issues and bad luck? Then you NEED to read Bruce Lipton’s “The Biology of Belief”! I read it a year ago and can honestly say it’s one of a small handful of books that I believe not only should be studied in all schools but had a huge effect in turning my life around. This is a groundbreaking book about the relatively new science of epigenetics, which has been proven to show that environmental factors have a greater effect on our body than our genes. It proves how our DNA is NOT set in concrete and does NOT 100% control our destiny. In fact, DNA can be altered by outside influences and that includes OUR OWN MINDS! The key message of this book is that if you learn to think in the correct manner, you can essentially change who you are.
We live in an age where it’s never been easier to make money, become successful and do whatever we want with our lives. Most of you reading this will be living in a democratic (roughly), developed nation with freedom for its citizens and access to the internet and so there is no excuse for not being able to attain what you desire. If you read that and thought:
“You can’t say that, you don’t know me, you don’t know my circumstances, you don’t know how hard that is for me!”
then I urge you to watch the film “The Pursuit of Happyness” starring Will Smith.
