The universal law of attraction is a phenomenon that has been sweeping the world for the past few years thanks to the movie "The Secret". (Unfortunately The Secret didn't tell the whole Secret... but that is for another article!)
Whether you know of it or not ... believe in it or not ... this 'law' impacts every single aspect of your life. It is much like gravity - you may not know about it or you may chose to believe there is no such thing simply because you can't touch it ... however, most people would agree it is gravity which keeps us firmly planted here on planet earth.
If you want to live a highly successful life ... in all senses of the word ... then this is one of the most important pages on the entire site. Understanding and adopting the principles of Law of Attraction you will certainly help you attract the success you are ready for.
I was fortunate enough to be introduced to the work of Abraham-Hicks several years ago. Since then I have deliberately chosen to live my life, following the principles, taught by Abraham and Esther and Jerry Hicks. And boy oh boy, my life just gets more and more delicious each day.
We are vibrational energy
Our vibrations dictate the reality we live - (that which is like unto itself, is drawn)
When you are in alignment with the larger part of you (your Source Energy), life flows more freely and easily
Your internal guidance system (your feelings) let you know if you are in or out of alignment with yourself and your desires
Only take action after coming into alignment
You don't need circumstances or others to act in a specific way in order to be happy
Live lightly, fully, friskily, eagerly anticipating, joyously
Lets take a look at each of these principles in more detail.
The science of quantum physics has shown that everything in this universe is simply energy. Energy vibrating at such rapid speeds that it (more or less) magnetizes energy on similar wavelengths so that it takes physical form - that includes the chair you are sitting on, the computer you are looking at, the dog at your feet and of course you! Seems far-fetched doesn't it!
Now, how does that relate to our thoughts ... well keep reading!
Scientists have proven that our thoughts can actually change matter. For example US, researcher Cleave Baxter, was conducting an experiment on white cells. He took a sample of his saliva - and placed it on a centrifugal. Halfway through the experiment he had a sudden idea that he would cut the back of his hand to see if that might affect his white cells. As he went in search of a lancet, to cut his hand with, he happened to glance at the chart that was recording the electromagnetic activity of the white cells. It had already registered intense activity. In other words, his white cells (which were outside of his body) were reacting to his intention to cut his hand even before he had actually inflicted the cut.
So what does this all mean? The experiments, conducted by Cleave Baxter and other researchers, helps us to understand the profound impact our thoughts can have.
Our thoughts and feelings send out very strong waves of vibrational energy, and it is our thoughts and beliefs that drive both our behavior and what we notice in life.
Surely you know people who seem to have bad luck follow them everywhere. And, you probably know others who just seem to blink, to have gold dust litter at their feet. This is because we magnetically draw things to us, or repel them from us, with our vibration. Our vibe is determined by our thoughts ... so whichever way a person's predominant thoughts and expectations are focused, they will either attract success or failure.
Where do you give most of your attention and thinking? Is it to how tough you've got it at work? To how you can't rely upon the people you work with? Or are you more focused on all the good things you have at work and how most people want to contribute in a meaningful way?
If your life isn't exactly how you would like it to be ... then start to become aware of your dominant thoughts - are they serving you or dis-serving you? Read more about your vibe and how to get it where you want.
No matter your religious or spiritual beliefs - most people can agree that there is a part of ourselves that is bigger than just the physical body that we live within. Some people call that energy that resides within Spirit or Soul or God or Your Higher Self - you may have a different label (through listening to the teachings of Abraham I have come to call it my Source Energy).
It has been wonderful for me to (re)discover that the larger part of me (and you) is Source Energy. And, when we tune in to this larger part of ourselves, we act with grace, dignity, courage and joy.
When applying the principles of the universal law of attraction it is so important to align your daily actions and activities with your Source Energy. If you are regularly feeling out of kilter, feeling like your energy is being sapped - it's a sure sign you are out of alignment.
You may well be asking what does she mean by Alignment? I have come to understand that ...
Happy, Energized, Enthusiastic,
Joyful, Satisfied, Content
A fundamental principle of the universal law of attraction is that no matter what it is you want in life - from strong healthy relationships, to a car, to health, to feeling terrific as soon as you ask for it - source energy is on to it. Your only job is to come into vibrational alignment with that which you are asking for. And the way that you do this is by noticing how you are feeling ...
In the past much of my life was spent with little attention to my emotional state beyond knowing that often I felt out of sorts and that maybe my life wasn't all it was meant to be.
Through studying the universal law of attraction with Abraham I have come to understand the importance of alignment and to take to notice of how I am feeling ... and if the feeling is anything less than positive to turn my attention to how I would like things to be. This one small act has had profound vibration throughout my entire life.
If you are regularly feeling out of kilter, frustrated, exhausted, overwhelmed, you may well find the answers you want to a better feeling life by discovering the skills of tuning into your emotional guidance system and then deliberately choosing to bring yourself into alignment with the all knowing part of you.
When you take the time to connect with your Source Energy and get that feeling of alignment with that wiser part of yourself ... (that energy within you that creates universes) ... and then turn your attention to focusing on what you want and why you want it - any actions taken (after this small moment of quiet) flow more easily and are more successful.
It is when you take action without getting clear about why you are doing it and how you want to feel about it ...
without aligning to your Source Energy ...
Struggle Street generally rears its ugly head.
Now, no matter what is happening, whenever I find myself out-of-sorts or in a situation I'd prefer not to be facing, I ask myself these questions:
Before making use of this practice, like most people, when I found myself in a situation not to my liking - for example dealing with a colleague who hadn't performed the way I expected - I would get caught up in the drama, and often times end up upset, frustrated and/or annoyed. And like many people this can become a pattern of thinking and feeling that flows on into many areas of life. Using the practice of coming into alignment means that these types of situations don't impact me nearly as much and I now deal with them much more quickly and in a much healthier manner.
Applying the universal law of attraction means that rather than pushing against what you don't want ... now you will keep your attention focused toward what you want to have happen differently, make peace with where you are and look for the benefits in the situation - for example a particularly difficult to deal with person, might just be helping you to get clearer about the types of relationships and work colleagues you want to deal with.
If you want to read a book that will change the course of your life irrevocably I highly recommendThe Vortex: Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships by Esther and Jerry Hicks (the original source material of the universal law of attraction phenomenon).
In order for you to manifest what you desire one of the easiest principles of the universal law of attraction is to live with an attitude of appreciation. This will take you at warp speed toward sending out the vibe that attracts more good things to you.
One of my favorite exercises is first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening, laying in bed and glorying in all the wonderful things that I can appreciate - from having a bed to lay in, to my wonderful daughter, to my awesome clients and visitors to my websites, to my horse, my dog, my health, my joy at life ... It sure is a high octane start to the day and a glorious way to fall asleep in the evening. Try it you'll like it
One of the things I love the most, about universal law of attraction teachings of abraham-hicks, is that we all make way too much of this. Abraham constantly reminds us to be playful, have fun ... life is meant to be joyous. All we need to do is relax, get happy, keep focused on what we want to move toward, and life will be the dream we want it to be.
In order for you to fast-track your leadership career you need to get your predominant thinking patterns focused on what you want and why you want it ... and here's the two most critical elements ...
As you are thinking about it you must feel positive emotions - such as joy, happiness - with your current circumstances AND
You must be looking forward with positive expectation to what it is you desire.
You do this by visualizing, focusing and feeling excited about and drawn to what it is you want. So, if you want your career to be successful, you have to ensure that your thoughts, and feelings, are aligned with the actions you are taking, and you have to believe that it will happen. If you don't have that positive expectation that it will happen, then it simply won't.
