Do you love the idea of the Law of Attraction, but haven’t been able to get it to work for you? Or maybe it’s been hit and miss? The real explanation is probably not what you think.
Here’s the truth: The Law of Attraction has been oversimplified and bastardized. If you are familiar with the movie The Secret, it was great from the perspective that it helped humanity become more awake to our abilities to consciously create. On the flip side, the consensus was that the law was so oversimplified and left people feeling misled and bewildered.
So let’s set things straight…
If you’ve been following me lately, you’ll have noticed that I’ve spent a lot of time lately diving into the ways we give away our energy and personal power. It’s the first thing I share with my High Powered Living group, and that’s for a very good reason.
When you want to create a better life (more love, better finances, more fulfilling career etc), you MUST first, “clean up how you show up”.
Why? Because chances are you have limiting beliefs and thought patterns that are running the show. And they hold you back from being the powerful creator that you are!
The tricky part is that you usually aren’t even aware you are doing this… until you are!
I recall years ago when I was stuck at the same income level. I knew I needed to do things differently if I wanted different results. I thought I was doing everything right to attract what I wanted, but then realized I had a blind spot. So I started to become more and more aware of my thoughts and beliefs. I soon discovered that I actually had resistance to growing! Yikes. I believed “If I grow my income, I will have even more responsibilities and work and I will burn out.” It didn’t matter what intentions I set, this belief always won!
In other words, your blocks will always trump your desires! Eeeek, not good!
Once I worked on letting go of my limiting belief and increased the focus on my desire, I ended up quadrupling my income! (Side note: In the process, I created a new belief, “More income means more freedom, more experiences, ability to hire help, serve more people and give back.”)
So to make this Law work for you, you MUST first make the unconscious, conscious so that you can stop arguing for your limitations and become the powerful creator you are.
At a superficial level, can you see why so many people might say the Law of Attraction doesn’t work? Truth is, it is ALWAYS WORKING!! It’s LAW! No different than Newton’s Law of Gravity.
It works but we need to work it! And we must become aware of the energy that we are putting out into the world. Most of us do not live with this kind of awareness.
So let’s recap. To become the powerful conscious creator that you are, you must:
1) Clean up how you show up: Become aware of and overcome your blocks by reclaiming your energy and personal power. (Remember the Human Do-er, The External Validator, The Unexpressed, and the other ways we give away our energy?)
2) Make the unconscious conscious: Look at your results! These are a reflection; manifestations of your thoughts and beliefs. They will tell you how to adjust.
3) Live every day with greater awareness: Make this your new way of BE-ing. The more conscious you are = the greater ability to be a conscious creator.
I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes by Les Brown.
Remember, the Law of Attraction is always working and you are always attracting! What is it that you are currently attracting? And what is it you REALLY want to attract?
