Almost everyone has heard of the law of attraction. What is it? Wikipedia defines it as:
“The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim like attracts like which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy.”
The law of attraction is an interesting phenomenon that very likely occurs in any and every given moment. It is nurtured by conscious and unconscious energy. You attract what you focus on. The energy you release is what will return to you. You, I and every living organism are the catalysts. It is possible for any life form to inject energy impulses into the core field of energy. A life form with a higher level of consciousness may be able to influence the frequency of universal energy more than a life form with less consciousness. A further benefit which higher consciousness provides is to nurture an awareness of any given influence on the dimension of energy. The very fact that we can be aware of consciousness allows us to experience the results of the law of attraction.
This marvelous dimension of energy which allows manifestation from a state of non-manifestation is still a mystery. It’s actual origin, content or purpose is irrelevant. It has not been proven scientifically. Science is a content structure of humankind. We should not assume that universal consciousness is interested in our assumptions or even facts. The law of attraction will give you what you want; even if you don’t want it. Does this sound confusing? I wish to give you an example from my daily experiences.
There have been situations when I have wanted to avoid confrontation with a given person or situation. I had done everything physically and mentally possible to avoid such an encounter and would plan where to go or what to do just to avoid a confrontation. I had actually “believed” that I could avoid a person or event and I did everything possible to stay away from this person or situation. What do you think happened almost every time? The law of attraction gave me what I unknowingly manifested; whether I truly wanted it or not. The law of attraction does not take sides. It is impartial. It does not condemn one thought (conscious or unconscious energy impulse) or desire and praise another.
The law of attraction can and usually will manifest exactly what you have focused on; whether you feel it is good or bad, right or wrong. I can verify this as fact. It has happened to me again and again. A typical example would be of a person that I have tried to avoid. The energy output which does not want to encounter this person is exactly that which attracts him or her to me.
Attraction: It Happens
This has usually always resulted in me suddenly standing face to face with the very person that I tried so hard to avoid. The results have been the same in different situation that I have tried my best to avoid. I continually practice becoming more and more aware of what I am feeling and what the mind is thinking at any given moment. Now I even laugh inside when I get or experience that which I have thought; but not truly wanted. This has given me a clearer insight into the power of awareness. It is often possible to sense the encounter or situation before it happens.
It is quite a fascinating experience; and no it doesn’t have anything to do with Jedi Knight Abilities. It is possible for each person. The law of attraction is there. It gives us opportunities to manifest experiences that are nurturing, productive and fulfilling. Just be careful…you will usually always become what you think. Whether you truly want it or not is another story.
