The Law of Attraction and Facing Responsibility For Who and Where You Are Today
n Lesson 1 we explained that you are more than just a piece of organic matter. Your very essence is one of a spiritual nature – with the ability to attract into your life that which you focus your attention on.
The problem is this… Very few human beings realize the latent potential they have to alter their own lives. They walk in blindness, complaining about outside forces – debt, bad relationships, lack of opportunity – while remaining clueless to the power they already possess, the power that can alter their current reality. The much-revered Indian saint, Vivekananda, who lived over 100 years ago – explained it beautifully…
You are DIVINE. This is the core message in Vivekananda’s words. So the Big Question is:
How Then, Do We Begin to Get Ourselves Out of Our Current Situation and Claim the Abundance We Seek?
The Law of Attraction
his is how Bob Proctor explains the Law of Attraction:
We all work with one infinite power. We all guide ourselves by exactly the same laws. The natural laws of The Universe are so precise that we don’t even have any difficulty building spaceships; we can send people to the moon, and we can time the landing with the precision of a fraction of a second. Wherever you are – India, Australia, New Zealand, Stockholm, London, Toronto, Montreal, or New York – we’re all working with one power. One law. It’s the Law of Attraction!
The Secret is The Law of Attraction!
Everything that’s coming into your life, you are attracting into your life. And it’s attracted by virtue of the images you’re holding in your mind. It’s what you’re thinking. Whatever is going on in your mind, you are attracting to you.
To understand the Law of Attraction, let us first understand its underlying counterpart, The Law of Vibration. The Law of Vibration states that EVERYTHING vibrates (everything moves). Everything ever created from the smallest atomic particle to the largest skyscraper; is in a constant state of energetic motion. What looks solid is not. Even concrete, glass and steel is energy in constant motion. We live in an ocean of motion! What this lesson teaches us is that you have a power within you that is far superior to any circumstance or situation around you – you have free will over what you want to think. And these are the very thoughts that are in charge of directing power to whatever you choose in your lifetime. But here is the thing you need to understand…
Unconscious Attraction and Conscious Attraction
Whatever you think about, whether it’s good or bad – you attract into your life. Whether you want it or not is irrelevant – think about something you DON’T WANT and you attract it into your life. Unconscious attraction is what happens when we let our uncontrolled thoughts run free. Worry about getting out of debt – and that’s what you attract – MORE debt. Worry about getting old – and you’ll start experiencing the effects of old age. Worry about whether or not he or she loves you – and you attract uncertainty into your relationships. Every worry just serves to bring to your reality that which you think about. Worry and you’ll be sorry. Now, this may sound scary…the idea that every unconscious thought you have attracts that which you think of into your life. But don’t worry…because the reverse also happens. Every happy, joyful thought is also attracting into your life the positive thing you’re thinking about. Now here’s the best part. There’s a simple formula we want you to understand:
What this formula means is that your thoughts, magnified by the EMOTIONS behind your thoughts, equal the things that you attract into your life. Emotions are powerful. Thinking about a goal that you’re only half-excited about is not going to help you manifest that goal too fast. But think about a goal that really makes you excited…makes you weep with joy because the excitement of attaining it is so wonderful – NOW you’re adding power to your thoughts and really using the Law of Attraction. If your thoughts are a vehicle to move you towards your goal – your emotions are the fuel that power this vehicle.
So the good news is that your positive thoughts, because they excite you so much more and often have much more emotions attached to them – tend to be a lot more powerful than your negative thoughts. It is easier to attract the good than to attract the bad.
Accept Responsibility for Where You Are Today…Or You’ll Be Powerless to Change
f the Law of Attraction is as simple as that, why aren’t more people wealthy, even gratified about the state their lives are in?
Well, most people don’t take personal responsibility for their present results. They honestly believe the cause of their current results lies outside of themselves, due to conditions or circumstances they have no control over. Most people are ignorant of the Law: You attract into your life everything that is in harmonious vibration to you. The key to mastering the Law of Attraction is to understand that you are responsible for everything in your life. EVERYTHING. At some level – consciously or unconsciously, you attracted every person, every job, every idea, every illness, every joy and every bit of pain into your life. This leads to some interesting questions…do communities that are victims of crime waves or war attract these things into their lives? The answer is YES – but we’ll discuss that in more detail in lesson 3 when we talk about “Group Manifestation”
Once you Accept that You are the Maker of Your Own Reality, You Will See that You Have the Power to Change That Reality into Anything You Wish
We generally let our outside world control our inside world. We have to reverse this. Our thoughts dictate what we attract! We’ve got to let the inside world take charge of our outside world!
What you Think, And What You Feel, And What Manifests is Always a Match. No Exceptions.
Esther Hicks, author of The Law of Attraction ,
How to Use the Law of Attraction in Your Favor:
Let’s take a good look at your results in your life. As you read these questions, make a mental note of the answers in your mind:
What kind of relationships do you have? Are you in love? What are your friends like? How do you communicate with family members? What is your income? What is your business like? How about the health of your body? What do you THINK of your body
The thoughts you just thought . . . the answers that surfaced before you could stop them . . . are responsible for programming your current results! If you don’t like the results in your life, you need to change your thoughts. That’s ALL that the Law of Attraction is about. This is an orderly universe. Nothing happens by accident. The images you plant in your marvellous mind instantly set up an attractive force, which govern your results in life. You are a living, breathing magnet. As you read this article…. Things … Conditions …
Circumstances and People you know – and even some you don’t know – are marching to you like obedient soldiers to aid in the manifestation of your images. Wouldn’t you prefer those soldiers helping you with your positive images?
Take a few moments each day to monitor what is going on in your mind … What are you thinking about? How are you feeling? If you’re not feeling the way you want to feel, begin, instead, to visualize what you want rather than what you don’t want. Your vibration will instantly change. And when your vibration changes, your results follow that upward flow.
Your circumstances right now are ONLY your current reality. And current reality CAN CHANGE.
Getting Out of the Current Reality Trap
We tend to spend an overwhelming amount of attention on our current situation. We think about things the way they ARE – rather than the way they SHOULD BE. Because our dominant thoughts are on our current situation – these thoughts tend to be about daily worries, current lifestyle, how much money we currently have, the state of our current relationship, and so on. These mediocre, passive thoughts do nothing for us! All these thoughts do is simply keep in our lives our daily worries, current financial situations and current relationships. This is why CHANGE comes SLOWLY for most of us. We get obsessed with the way things ARE rather than the way things COULD be. And so we remain “stuck” in our lives – year after year – observing the same things. No growth, no abundance, no new wonderful discoveries or ideas – nothing. This is called the Current Reality Trap. The sad thing is, , it does not have to be this way. You do not have to stay stuck in mediocrity. We are powerful, amazing beings – but sadly, many of us do not realize our own beautiful potential. This is the difference between mediocre people and successful people. Mediocre people dwell on the present. Successful people look excitedly to what COULD be. We’ve all heard of millionaires who suddenly went broke and lost everything. The amazing thing about these people is that they usually, with remarkable ease, gain back their wealth. This is because while their physical wealth may have been lost through bankruptcy or bad investments – their mindset – their INNER wealth – is focused on riches. And so riches pour back to them quickly. It’s the Law of Attraction at work.
A Simple Technique to Begin Escaping the Current Reality Trap
We want to share with you a simple exercise you can do to help correct your thoughts and move you towards more abundance. Jane earns a decent income – but she’s not happy. She still has car payments, she wants to send her kids to a better school, she needs to save up for her graduate level education. But no matter how hard she works, she just never has enough. And to top it off – she owes the credit card companies tons of money. Odds are – you know someone like Jane. Most of us in Jane’s situation will start to focus on what we DON’T have. But the problem is, when you fuss and complain about not having enough – you attract more bills to pay. Jane might set a goal to get out of debt. This, too, is the wrong approach …the goal of that’s exactly what you attract into your life. This is how Jane would change her mindset once she attains mastery of the Law of Attraction.
getting out of DEBT – keeps you forever in DEBT. You’re thinking debt, debt, debt – and
First she would change her goal. Her goal would no longer be “get out of debt.” Her goal would be “absolute financial freedom.” Now she’s focusing on a positive. She would spend a few minutes every morning just day-dreaming about what she’s going to do once she attains financial freedom.
The next thing Jane would do is auto-correct her negative thoughts. Her initial thought might be: I’m so badly in debt – I don’t know what to do. I don’t have enough to get the things I seek in life for myself and my family. Slowly, she’d start correcting these thoughts: I have a home, my kids are happy. I have a loving family. I have a nice job with an opportunity for a raise. I am healthy. I shouldn’t feel so bad – many people don’t have a house or a loving family. My debt will be paid off – when I start saving just a little bit every month. There are people far worse off than I – 1 billion people worldwide have to survive on less than a dollar a day. I’m grateful that I have a job and a middle-income lifestyle. I like the idea of being rich. I’m grateful that I have a car, nice clothes, can eat 3 meals a day, and can take the occasional vacation – most people cannot afford this. I can believe that more money and multiple streams of income will open up to me in the near future. So, by gradually changing her view of her circumstances, Jane corrects herself from negative thinking to positive thinking. Slowly, her thoughts and dreams get bolder: I believe my talents will help me earn more income soon. I will soon have a business for myself.
I can see myself owning a 6-bedroom home by 2014. I will have one million in the bank within 5 years. Jane has started shifting into a mindset that lets the Law of Attraction flow freely in her favor – rather than against her. Notice that her thoughts essentially shift from: I’m so badly in debt – I don’t know what to do. to: I will have one million in the bank within 5 years. It’s a gradual shift, with small incremental boosts in your self-belief. But once you get started, you’ll notice that the positive thoughts begin to come faster and easier as you go along. Tiny coincidences will begin to happen. Maybe Jane will get a small raise, or she’ll learn a way to control her debt from a chance meeting with a financial advisor. New ideas and opportunities will start flowing her way – this stream of coincidences are The Law of Attraction at work. Watch out for them, embrace them and follow them – these tiny signs from the Universe will help give you the motivation and belief to keep moving towards greater and greater things. The current results you have in your life are based on your current belief. Your present income is based on your belief of what you’re capable of earning. As you go through this program, you are going to re-evaluate what you see as truth … what you believe. When you re-evaluate a situation, you will find that your results will change.

Like most people's lives, mine has been a constant up and down. Over the years though, I have received most everything I put my mind on. In 1975 I bought the big utility off road vehicle I wanted, after thinking about it and researching for nearly two years. I visualized a house with a swimming pool, and I got it. Then I wanted a big cabin in the mountains, and I even wrote down what it would look like; and I got that, even though I had to move to a different state (my choice). When I wanted more money, I changed jobs and even professions, to double and quadruple my income. I wanted a beautiful wife, and I got that, too (several times ;). But most amazing to me is the realization of the trip to a particular American Indian region in Arizona in 1976, where I always wanted to go. A region of which I made a report on while still in high school, in the early sixties, IN GERMANY, and never knowing, how I would be able to get there. Well, the Universe made it possible for me to move here and see it. Yes, the mind is an amazing "thing", and we do have the power to control our lives. Oh... And by the way... I am just a "normal" person. I do walk with both feet on the ground, and I do think realistically. But I make MY OWN reality.
