Some of you might have already heard about the ‘Law of Attraction’ – there are several movies about it, several books talk about it and it all seems to be so easy, theoretically…
The first appearance of this ‘law’ came from Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, a clockmaker in New England in the 19th century. His ‘new thought movement’ set the basic frames for this theory, saying that whatever your thoughts are will manifest. Wikipedia says about it: New Thought, sometimes known as Higher Thought, promotes the ideas that Infinite Intelligence, or God, is everywhere, spirit is the totality of real things, true human selfhood is divine, divine thought is a force for good, sickness originates in the mind, and “right thinking” has a healing effect. That might sound a bit presumptuous but if you think it over there lies a lot of truth within.
Let’s have a look on some facts first (for all you practicioners out there): As we know from quantum physics everything is connected, we are all the same yet different because everything vibrates on different frequencies. Everything is made out of the same elements, only the composition and frequency gives every thing its appearance, its identity. Just by accepting this fact you must admit that the biggest and smallest is the same, there is no difference in any of it, one for all and all for one.
We as humans are made of the most complex combination of elements, but there is one factor that really marks the difference: The thought. In recent years the thought became the center of attention for many, we still know very little about how our brain works and what is it that makes it so powerful but as a fact we know that our brain is able to think, combine, create and manifest in a unique way like no other living organism on our planet.
In fact, nobody knows exactly why our brain is so much more developed then the brain of other living beings on earth, it is of a far bigger size and wrinkled to still fit into our skull. Some say it was an injection of extraterrestrial ‘intelligence’ that made our brains grow to the actual size, some say it was a natural evolution to fit our needs. But why then does it not keep growing as we seem to get more and more intelligent? But this is not the topic of this article, i may refer to it on a follow-up online, so let’s end this thought with one possible explanation – it just can not grow any bigger in our skull.
Now that we know that the thought is what moves the world around us it seems logic that we are able to influence actively what is and will happen to us in a certain way. In the movie ‘The Law of Attraction’ it is said that by imagining what you want it will manifest and you can achieve anything just by thinking of it. This is, as a matter of fact, not true, as is most of the movie itself. After watching it the first time i was deeply impressed but, after finding out that all characters in the movie are fictitious and played by actors, the disillusion was even bigger than the fascination in first place.
What happens is that, even though you think of a specific wish to manifest you are actually moving away from its fulfillment, not towards it. This happens because you are perfectly aware of the lack of it and are manifesting its absence rather than moving towards its manifestation. This leads to disappointment and you are further away than ever of what you want to achieve. It is impossible to get where you want to be by being aware of its absence, you defeat your own purpose by sending out negative vibrations.
The right way to do it is imagining the feeling of how it would be if you already achieved what you wanted, in other words do not say ‘I want (or need) money, imagine the feeling of financial well-being even before you get the money, like this you will attract it to get to this feeling, in any way.
Another example is the thought of ‘I want (or need) a new car, it does not work because you think of you not having the car, if you instead like the feeling of security that comes with having a new car it will come your way, and even more, other things that match this feeling will come your way too.
Sounds magic but is the result of pure quantum physics and, believe it or not (there we go!) for me it works perfectly. So next time you are in desperate need of something let go of the desperation, let go of the thought of ‘need’, instead imagine you already have it and it will come your way sooner or later. This is not the key to everything you ever dreamed of, don’t get too excited, but by practicing it you will see that your life will move in the direction you imagine it to go.
Conclusion? One of the oldest proverbs ever told: Be very aware of what you wish for, it could actually become true.
