This is the first of a series of emails busting many of the most common myths around the Law Of Attraction.
Hold on tight, because it’s going to come at you fast and furiously.
MYTH: The Law Of Attraction is a LAW!
Everyone knows that the Law Of Attraction is a law, right?
Well let’s look at this pragmatically…
If the Law Of Attraction was a real law, it would have to be replicable again and again, each and every time it is applied.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I haven’t noticed that each and every time I think a thought that the Law Of Attraction makes it manifest into physical form.
In fact, I’m pretty darn pleased the Universe doesn’t work that way, because I think some pretty weird thoughts
So what is the Law Of Attraction then?
The Law Of Attraction is a phenomenon – it’s a NAME given to a phenomenon that exists in the Universe.
The phenomenon looks like this: sometimes mysterious things happen in our world that seem unexplainable and that are often thought to be beneficial to us.
Carl Jung, the famous psychologist called them synchronicity. The sceptics call these phenomena coincidences. The religious call them miracles. The more new-agey crowd call it the Law Of Attraction.
I often hear people saying things like, “I’m going to use the Law Of Attraction to get xyz…”. Even I have been guilty of saying this in the past.
Nothing wrong with saying that, but a flaw exists with this kind of thinking: You CAN’T actually use the Law Of Attraction to get anything.
Because the LOA is not a thing – it is a phenomenon.
Phenomena cannot be used because they are effects generated by a myriad of different, systemic causes.
So, if you can’t use the Law Of Attraction, what tools can you use to build a life filled with everything you desire?
Here’s a short (if incomplete) list off the top of my head:
- You can use your imagination to program your mind to draw attention to opportunities that might bring you closer to your goals
- You might also be able to use your mind to influence matter on a subatomic level (more on this often debated topic in a future article)
- You can use your body to take actions that lead you closer to your goals
- You can take actions that keep yourself in a state of FLOW – that mysterious state where good (sometimes even miraculous) sh#t just seems to happen all around you.
These are just a few of the many things you CAN do to create the phenomenon known as the Law Of Attraction.
One last thing…
It’s also important to note that the Law Of Attraction is NOT some external force outside of you.
Why is that important?
Because the minute you think that some external force outside of you is influencing your life, you just gave ALL your power away to that force, leaving you as a VICTIM to that force’s power and influence over you.
Here’s the deal…
You Are The Force!
As Darth Vader tells Luke in the movie Star Wars, “The Force is with you, young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet.”
The physics behind this are too complex to explain in this short article, but for now, just consider that YOU are the Law Of Attraction in Action and that YOU can have anything you want in your life if you use your mind and play with your imagination.
So, there you have it… Myth #1 busted!
I hope this distinction allows you to begin thinking about the Law Of Attraction in a new, more empowering way.
Til next time,
Have a miraculous day,
