Law of Attraction

When the now famous book The Secret came out around 10 years ago I tried intently to understand it and apply the lessons in the book in my life. Considering my business was sold, I lost my home and then was divorced within the five years following reading the book I think I could safely say I didn’t get the message.

In the last five years, however, my life has gone from strength to strength and I have achieved everything I have set out to achieve (only limited by my own expectations of what is possible). Without being consciously aware of it, I have improved my understanding of, and application of, one of the most powerful laws of life – the Law of Attraction.

There are many ways to name and describe this law but for me the greatest realisation has been through the concept of vibration. The Law of Attraction is also known as the Law of Vibration. In its essence, everything is energy: we are energy. That is, we are constantly vibrating and those vibrations are determined by what we are thinking and feeling.

Now, for me, the real breakthrough was when I finally understood that the vibrations created from our thoughts and feelings happen inside us, and only inside us. It makes no difference who or what you are thinking about, who or what you are looking at or who or what you are talking to -everything happens inside our own bodies. That is why “what goes around comes around”. In fact, its not even going around, we are simply just creating it inside ourselves with every thought and every feeling.

Anger, sadness, frustration, bitterness, despair, spite and all negative thoughts are creating negative emotions inside our body, regardless of who these thoughts are directed at. They may or may not affect the other person, but they sure as hell affect ourselves. We are our own worst enemy!

Oh, and our own best friend, if we choose to be so.

That brings me to my second realisation and that is how fundamental it is to love and appreciate yourself. I cannot stress this enough!! I am not talking about arrogance or pride, but of an essential self-respect and tenderness towards oneself. You cannot be to another as you are not to yourself – fact. To love and care for you is to love and care for others. It really is that simple.

Oh, and you are the only one who can do this. This is your greatest responsibility and your key to all.

When you see that every thought and every feeling is created within you and literally changes who you are, you must come to a realisation of how important it is to treat every thought and feeling with its due attention because with every vibration they create, they are defining your tomorrow.

“All that we are is a result of what we have thought” Buddha

“It is the combination of thought and love which forms the irresistible force of the law of attraction” Charles Haanel

FIND YOUR LIFE PURPOSE. FIND CLARITY

fullsizerender-31.jpgYou’re lying on your deathbed (bear with me!) with just a few hours left to breath on this beautiful planet…NOW what is truly important to you? What would you most want to do in those last moments? Who would you most like to be with? What would you most like to say, and to whom? What would you most like to see, taste, smell, touch, feel? What do you regret not having done? What would you have changed about your life?

Personally, I believe that a having clear mind is one of the hardest yet most-important responsibilities in life. A clear mind is a happy mind, a focused mind and a powerful mind. Clarity is absolutely fundamental for a successful life. Without clarity we aren’t moving in any particular direction or at least not focusing our energies to achieve more, faster.

it should be one of the school curriculum subjects! Certain traditional cultures around the world understand the importance of a clear direction in life. They often spend many years as a community helping young adults to discover their purpose in life and start on their path to mastery of whatever that purpose is.

Clarity is the starting point from where you become the master of circumstances, rather than a slave to it. It’s when you take control of your life through discovering your purpose and motivations. Reflect, reflect, reflect on the questions posed above (and others as they come to you) until you are crystal clear about your passions, interests and values that will guide you in your life.

As always, the spiritual before the psychological and physical. The hard work is mental and requires courage to go beyond what society, family, friends and your past dictate to you and decide for yourself what matters and where you are going. A dominant sign of all successful people is precisely the courage to believe in themselves, which is to know themselves and decide for themselves, regardless of outside influence.

You, and only you, can know what is best for you, what mission you have in life and where to start. There may be 7.5 billion people on the planet, but you are still unique and individual; we all are. How can anyone know you better than yourself if we are all unique? Be brave, be free, have clarity!
