It seems there’s more going on in life than is readily apparent and the so-called Law of Attraction is apparently one way to access some of it. Of course, the idea that we humans can tap into something beyond our ordinary selves is ancient, and so is the idea that we can ‘manifest’ or create what we want.
I’m far from an expert. What I want to talk about is how some of the thinking there has made life more fun and productive.
Abraham-Hicks, who have roughly a gillion videos on YouTube is where I started. Esther Hicks talks about moving toward what feels good. The idea is the better we feel about ourselves and our lives the more effective we’ll be. I’ve turned that into moving into gratitude. When I’m down, or angry or whatever unhappy, when I remember what I’m grateful for I start feeling better pretty quickly. In general when I feel better I write better and market better, etc. etc. etc.
There’s some real science behind Law of Attraction
Dr. Joe Dispenza, who also has a big presence on YouTube, has done a lot of solid research into this particular brain/mind/body connection. He’s also with his team conducted an amazing number of brain scans of people in his seminars which indicated we have much more influence on our body than we are traditionally taught.
I read You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter the first time several years ago, and just finished rereading it. I’m glad I did. I’m now reading his newer Becoming Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon. I’m fascinated and have come to think of him as a mystic and a scienctist.
Agnes Vivarelli is another favorite of mine and in fact she interviewed me recently – I’ll be posting that soon.
Two major results for me
There have been two major results for me from all ths Law of Attraction stuff . One is that I’ve come to like, even love myself more – aka increased self-worth. The other is I’ve discovered when I’m I get emotionally funky, getting back to gratitude reconnects me with what I often call my inner Self.
Either of those makes it easier for me to write, combined I find I’m more willing to market as well as keep the house tidy.
No, I haven’t made a million bucks, nor am I soon to be married to the love of my dreams. Yes, those are manifestations many people work toward. What I have noticed is I’m kinder to myself and enjoy life more. It seems like that has a positive effect on my writing. It feels like I’m writing closer to the bone more easily and more often.
Come to think about it, I might even call that magic.
I don’t know of Law of Attraction will work for you… it might. Am I recommending it? Sort of I guess.
Let me know what you think,
Write well and often,
