Every successful person in this world will say that they had something that drove them to the place where they are now. When we read their biographies, we can identify that there was a dominant thought that brought circumstances, events or people in the direction they had in mind. From this finding we derive the first principle of the law of attraction: Our dominant thoughts bring about actions, events and circumstances.
Wherever we think, negative or positive, this continuous thought will bring negative or positive results in our life. The bible tells us the story-drama of a man that ,although a good man, but because he harbor a wrong thought in his mind, he brought disastrous results to himself. We read the drama of Job.
"There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil". Job 1:1
Job was a good man but one day he lost everything he had. His friends could not understand how in this world this good man could loose family, goods , everything. For the most part of the book his friends try to find one fault in him that could explain the reason of his suffering. But he, himself, give us the reason of his "misfortune".
"...the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me." Job 3:25
Every time his sons and daughters had a party ,a feast in their home, he immediately run to offer sacrifices because maybe, he thought, they had done something wrong. His fear that something bad could happen to them broke the fence he had around him and brought what he feared the most. His dominant thought operated in his life. In the book of Proverbs we read:
"For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7
The whole universe is pure energy, we live in a zero-field ocean of energy where subatomic particles move, coming into and disappearing of existence. Quantum science has been marveled about this phenomenon in the subatomic level. (The Field _ Lynne McTarggart)
It is in this ocean of invisible subatomics particles-waves , created by God and an extension of God that we and the whole universe live. This ocean of energy is the meddium where waves of electricity, magnet or sounds move in. Our minds too is sending out waves, each thought it is not just the passage of quimical-electrical signals between neurons but the emission of frequencies. Looking at an EEG, the electro-encephalogram device that registers the electrical waves that come from our mind, we see how many frequencies are going out of our mind in any given time. Those waves go throughout the universe and can resonate with similar frequencies creating harmony or desarmony, bringing results that is still a vast cience field to be studied.
How many times we are near by someone and they start humming or whistling a song that we were just thinking about. Or in a conversation somebody bring a subject we were just thinking about. Telepathy is still a young science. But it is not too far the day when we may turn on or off lamps, radios etc, or even have devices that enhance the right waves and we will communicate throught our thoughts. As today March 2008, a company demonstrated how a device could read the waves sent to our vocal chords and with a computer they could transform them in commands for a wheel chair. Without voice someone was giving commands to the wheel chair where to go, to turn and to stop. (read link on the right side)
The mind is a powerful device, tremendous energy that we need to guide in the best direction. What we think will affect our lives, it doesn’t matter if we believe in this law or not. Our dominant thoughts will bring about emotions, people, events, circumstances.
Accepting this as a law even in it's infancy, make us wonder how much careful we must be about the thoughts we cherish and how can we guide them in a direction that would enhance and make us live more abundantly. And that is what we will discuss in our second principle.
One of the most important thing in life is to keep the joy in our mind. We do that by choosing always thoughts that are good, fruitful, positive, that is good for us and at same time a blessing to others.
In our relationships we want to share our happiness with everyone, but not everyone is ready or willingly to receive our way of seeing life. We must remember that there is so much negative thoughts in our world that some people do not believe they can be happy. On the other hand, every one is in different stages in life. Some may have a sadistic way of thinking. Others has been abused in their childhood. Others had relationships that destroyed their self-esteem. Others want to be happy their own way, living for pleasure alone, they replace pleasure for happiness, and sometimes they endup harming themselves and the people around them. Some live in poverty, because they are poor in their thinking, others live in sickness for, among others reasons, hating themselves, eating wrong, or because they don't care about life.
Every human being live in their own stage. Some take their problems thinking someone else can solve them, when we are called to solve our owns. We may receive advise, but everyone has to take responsibility for themselves and then take the decisions that are necessary. Some have so much negative aura, vibes around them that it can harm us. We need to approach each person with love and we need care for them and for ourselves. We cannot let their negativity damage our soul. We must not, by invitation or default,let their thoughts become part of us.
The bible say "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep." Rom 12:15. It means, show sympathy with everyone, sym-pathos, walk and feel the same with someone. But sympathy does not mean take their place, live their live. Christ came to Lazarus's funeral, there "Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, "See how he loved him!" John 11:35,36. But instead of looking for the cause of their troubles, He brought the solution. Lazarus was brought back to life.
Instead of living someone else troubles, looking for the causes or to whom to blame, our approach is looking for solutions. Working through the thinking process so they can take productive decisions. If they are in a mind set that do not allow them to see and to change, our decision should be, show possible directions and let them take their own decisions.
Some organizations tell us that if we have a drug addict that we want to help, we need to let them go to the bottom until they really decide they want to change on their own. If we do not let them go, then we may go down with them and we may not be able or will not have the strength to pull them out when they need us. When people are unhappy and they do not want to change their way of thinking, we need to let them be what they choose to be.
When the bible says " Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. ",in the same context it's says "... each one shall bear his own load." Galatians 6:2,5. That means there is a time to help , help with their burden, and there is time to let them go, they are responsible for their own "load".
Allowing means too, respect other's point of view. We do not have to agree with someone in order to love them. Christianity has taught us that we should love even our enemy. "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you," Matthew 5:43.
We have seen so much hate in the media, and most of time start with just a desagreement in their point-of-view. We never are going to agree with someone in all their point-of-views. We are creatures born to develop our own way to see life, and that is the beauty about life. Each one bring to the table their views, and from that different views new ideas, technologies, improvements are created. Any given group can have common grounds and differ in minor points. What keep the group is the common grounds. If someone do not agree with the common, he has the option to find or create another group that have his common grounds. And so goes the humanity.
Paul said to the Romans: "One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind." Romans 14:5. Be convinced in one owns mind doesn't mean reject the other that do not think alike. Again, what keep us together is the common grounds. And that he said to a church.
One common ground that keep humanity united is the compassion for the fellow human being. When there is catastrophe, we see countries that having strong divergent opinions although come together to help one in need. To care about the planet, to improve the human life, are subjects that bring us together.
Allow others be what they want to be. I can have a friend Muslim, Budhist, atheist or wherever without agree with his/her ideas or beliefs. They have the right to tell me their beliefs if I want to listen, so vice-versa. It is by reasoning that I may accept or reject their way of thinking. If we work together our work is our common ground. If we live in the same neighborhood, the needs of our community is our common ground. We respect one another without agreeing about our beliefs.
We start a Law of Attraction group in our city, we met every other Monday night, there is people of all walk of life. We respect and love them all. Our common ground is the improvement of everyone, is to help people that want to change their lives in a more productive and abundant way. As a Christian I do not have to agree with everything that is said in the group, like nobody has to agree with what I say. But I love them and accept everyone, and is only through my true love that some can see the light that I say is inside me. I may share my views like everybody else. If anyone see in me something they would like to have, then they will ask me how to get it, and that goes both way.
It is an atmosphere of love, respect and acceptance that people are attract for. And any true change in life is a question of personal desire and decision.
Your dominant thoughts are creating your reality. Your thoughts are electrical vibrations, waves that go out of your mind and resonates with whatever your thought is about, bringing circumstances, persons or events according to your dominant thought. You are a magnet.
If you concentrate in the things that you do not want, you bring them about. There is a buffer of time between your thought and the manifestation of it, giving you the opportunity to redirect, clarify your thoughts.
Your Inner Being, inner energy, your soul, (God's breath in you - my input) is good, it desires the best, your thought life need to be in agreement with your soul to reach the potential in you for you.
Your feelings are your guidance system to show you if you are in the right track to accomplish the better good in you. Feeling down, stressed, depression, negative thoughts, all or any of them is showing you that you are not in alignment with your Inner Being. Start thinking in something good, a good memory, a good desire, dream about a different future, let the new emotion replace the old. You are creating your future, you are in a deliberately creation. Pay attention to your feelings.
What do you want? Decide what your really want, be specific about, focus on it. "When you meditate, ask and believe that you have received" ( prayer Mark 11:24.)
Disregard how things are, even how people see you, give your attention to the way you prefer things to be.
The more emotion one thought bring to your mind, the greater your magnet power to attract the thing you want.
Spend everyday 10 to 15 min. bringing powerful thoughts, passionate, positive emotions, picture yourself in the things that satisfies and pleases you.
When you feel disappointments, a litle down etc, your Inner Being is telling you are not focusing in what you really want.
Having clarified your intentions you will allow or not what others are offering to you, you invite them in your experience. Giving attention to what you DO NOT want, brings more of it.
The universe has enough provision to give whatever you ask to make your cake. Having joy is the most important thing in life. Do not allow yourself to focus in things that do not make you feel good. Joy is the path to the wonderful life we want.
Our emotional intense joy is our point of attraction, is the momentum where we create powerful waves that goes throughout the universe.
When friends are suffering, concentrate in the solutions, even if you ask the cause, do not dwell on it, look for success, concentrate in a good outcome not in pain.
Allowing is letting others be what they want to be without letting their thoughts interfere in your joy. You share joy, if people around you are not ready and want to keep going their way, let them be. You are not their saviour, unless they want to be "saved" from their way of thinking.
Success it is the achievement of joy, living in joy, contentment, others things will follow.
Rather than jump in action, Think through, see the outcome, visualize it, expect good things to come and they will be. You will be inspired, lead through joyful action to the realization of your dream. Use you body , action, to enjoy that which you have created through your thought.
Pre pave is the joyful creation you have launched in the future paved by inspired joyful actions in the way.
Visualization, is the images I keep in my mind, the things, actions and feelings I want to achieve. Playbook, is my visualization in a chart, in a visible book or board where I can see and meditate about it. Declarations, are sayings that I repeat to myself, declaring the the things I want to be part of my life. Segment intending, are declarations for each part of my day, giving me control of my thoughts in every stage of that day.
This is some of the principles, a nutshel, of the law of attraction. Your comments are very welcomed.
