One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they start using Law of Attraction to get things. When you use it like that your results cannot be consistent. Consistent results come from making Law of Attraction a part of your lifestyle. What does it mean to have something be part of your lifestyle? It means you're going to do it regardless of other things. For example, if you were to lose your wallet do you think you would stop brushing your teeth?
The biggest stumbling block to the practice of the Law of Attraction is the question “how do you ignore reality?”
My short answer is “you don't ignore reality, you shouldn't ignore reality, and you cannot ignore reality”. Law of attraction is not about ignoring your reality. Law of Attraction is about processing what you're experiencing in a way that makes you feel hope for the future. When you do that your self-talk is “this reality that is happening I don't like it, but it's temporary, it will change and the future will be better than the past, this too shall pass. This is not my permanent situation. Yes, this is where I am just now, it's not going to stay like this forever. This situation that I am in is temporary.”
I was talking to someone a day or so ago and I was explaining to them the difference between running away from something and running towards something. Think about it, if you're running away from something you are low on the emotional scale you are feeling emotions such as anger, fear, blame, guilt; those feelings make you run away. You are trying to get away from where you are but you can't get away from where you are because where you are is coming with you wherever you go. Where you are is a result of your vibration and because you are taking yourself with you wherever you go then unless you stop and change your vibration nothing changes.
I was confused when I graded G’s final exam paper. He was one of the top students in my Finance class, but you wouldn’t know it by reading this exam. I decided that I would find out what was going on. I was sure that there was a problem. In my mind I had already decided my course of action. I would meet with G and find out what had happened, then I would make a formal request to the head of the department to allow G to take a retest. After all, this would impact his ability to graduate and get into the workforce.
If a desire seems really big then that means that you are vibrationally very far away from it, which means that instead of seeing how possible it is you are more focused on how impossible it is.
When we say things like “Oh it would be like a dream come true if this happens” it means “this is something that I’ve created that I don't think is possible and if it came true I would be so, so happy”. But in reality, we know because Abraham has taught us that it is as easy to create a castle as a button.
It does not take any more energy to create a button than a castle. Just because a castle is bigger, it does not require extra thought to create it.
What you want is an expression of your desire, it's coming from your heart but what are you actually thinking about, that thought is what you are focusing on and that thought comes from the mind. Is your mind contradicting your heart? If it is, then it is making it harder for you to move forward towards the things that you want. As a result, we don't get what we want, we get what we focus on. If I’m not getting what I want, it simply means that I’m focusing in the wrong place. The absence of the manifestation that I want to see is an indication, it's guidance that is telling me what I need to do
If you are doing frequent visualization in order to accomplish a specific goal it's not going to work. Visualization is not supposed to be a tool for asking the Universe for help. If you are using visualization because you are asking the universe to give you something that you want it does not matter how much effort you put into imagining that you've already achieved it, you would still be creating resistance which would slow down manifesting.
Abraham says that there are three steps to the manifestation process: you ask, the Universe creates it, and now you have to allow it in. When you ask it is given but in non-physical form and then you have to allow it in – you have to convert it to physical form.
I am beyond thrilled to share my latest book with you! My daughter has created the beautiful illustrations included in it.
This book is about learning the right way to use affirmations, based on the teachings of Abraham. You see Affirmations work when they are customized to our emotional set-point and our beliefs. When used properly they are powerful tools in helping us reprogram our subconscious mind and manifest the things we want. That's what this little book is all about.
You see Abraham has taught us that you can't make too big a jump on the emotional scale, but most people do just that when they are using affirmations. This is the number one reason why affirmations don't work for most people. In fact, they can do more harm than good.
To be of use an affirmation must feel good when you say it.
One of my favorite affirmations is "I care, but not that much", because as Abraham says "there is nothing serious going on".
The best thing is you can get your favourite affirmation on a T-Shirt, tote or any other gift item at Diya's RedBubble Store.
What we are trying to do is to see whether these two philosophies agree with each other or disagree with each other. I am by no means an expert on Hooponopono, but from what little I have seen and heard it seems to me that Hooponopono and the Law of Attraction agree with each other. As I understand it, there are four statements in Hooponopono that form the basis of the way it is practiced – these are:
Please forgive me
I love you
Now consider these statements through the Law of Attraction lens.
