In 2006 I saw a film called ‘The Secret’.
This film is based on the ‘Law of Attraction’ and claims that positive thinking can create life-changing results such as increased wealth, health and happiness.
The film is also a book written by Rhonda Byrne and it has transformed many lives of the people who have taken the ‘Law of Attraction’ concept on board.
I was studying Crystal Therapy at the time and it was our Tutor that suggested we watch the film. We were learning about the ‘The Law of Vibration’ and how everything in the universe is in motion. All things move, vibrate and travel in circular motions and each thing that exists is identified by its own number of oscillations, vibrations or waves.
Now, I’m no Quantum Scientist, but this film made all the science much easier to understand. Like attracts like, just like magnets, high fibrational frequencies are attracted to other high vibrational frequencies the same as low fibrational frequencies are attracted to other low fibrational frequencies. It’s as simple as that! ‘The Law Of Attraction’ is an easy way of explaining ‘The Law of Vibration’.
I have been aware for a long time now about how our thoughts and feelings shape our reality and I have become increasingly aware of how powerful our words are in everyday conversations. The way we think, act, feel and comunicate sends vibrations out into the universe and we get back whatever resonates with us. Essentially, if you think and feel positively, you will attract back positive events and circumstances. If you think angry thoughts and feel angry, you will attract back events and circumstances that cause you to feel more anger.
As part of my personal development last year I decided to make a vision board of my wishes and desires for 2011 and I placed it on the wall by my bedside. It was the last thing I saw going to bed at night and the first thing I saw getting up in the morning (not counting my husband,Bill!) and it helped me to focus on my wishes and desires consistently. I also did some work on myself using ‘Emotional Freedom Technique EFT’ (tapping therapy) which helped to remove any blocks or limiting beliefs I had on a subconscious level. I also balanced daily using ‘The Balance Procedure,’ another energy based technique which helps you become aligned to your true potential.
Well all I can say is, don’t knock it till you try it!
2011 was another amazing year for me and I am so excited about 2012. I have had to change my vision board this year because last years wishes and desires were accomplished apart from one (but that’s because I still have a stubborn limiting belief that needs working on regarding that particular wish!)
If you think I am totally bonkers now, that’s fine! Maybe you have read the book or seen the film and you feel ‘The Law of attraction’ is not working for you. The ‘Law of attraction’ is working all the time and it attracts back to you whatever you are thinking and feeling. You may consciously believe that you are being positive but on a subconscous level there may be some limiting beliefs lurking, for example… “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t deserve anything,” “Life is hard”, “I don’t like myself” etc. If this is going on for you then this is what you will attract back and you won’t be feel good enough and life will be hard and you wont be able to accept yourself.
The film and book does focus on attracting a lot of material things into your life and it has received a lot of criticism. Maybe it could have been made better, written better because not everyone wants the big yacht, big house, flashy car etc, but if you see past that, the actual concept that ‘The Law of Attraction’ is real and is working right now in this moment and every thought and feeling you are experiencing now is shaping your world.
I love the following quotation from Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D.
“The movement of life may at times seem chaotic, but it is not. It moves like a gigantic wave and we are caught atop it. If we try to direct the wave, we’ll find ourselves in constant battle with it. If we learn merely to survive in the wave’s wake, we become victims of it. But we do have another option. We can grasp the rules of the wave’s movement and learn to surf it skilfully”.
The most important place to start though is to love yourself, but more about that in my next blog!
Thank you for being in my life
Love and Light
