The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is a very popular topic these days. With so much emphasis in the media on the economy and lack of work, many souls are now beginning to search for new and different ways to bring about Abundance in their lives.

The Law of Attraction is a Universal Law that states that whatever you put your energy toward, that is what you will draw into your life. Often times the positive aspects of the Law of Attraction are overemphasized, but in order to become a Master of your own destiny, you need to understand all of the ramifications of this Universal Law. Therefore, you must take into consideration that the converse of this Law is also true. Whatever is in your life, you drew it there because somehow it is your creation.

When you look at the life that you have designed for yourself, it is important that you look at the things that you would like to change and what you would like them to be. Once you have determined what those areas of your life are, then you need to ask yourself if there is anything blocking you from making those desired changes.

Do you have any lingering fears or other unresolved fear based energy? Are you living a life out of balance in one area? Are you run down and tired? Are you putting the needs of others above yourself? All of these things play a role in your ability to manifest what you need and want in life. Knowing yourself and understanding your subconscious patterns allows you to be in control of what you are drawing into your energy. Without that knowledge, you unknowingly are allowing your subconscious patterns to dictate your ability to manifest.

The real surprise here is that once you get a stronghold on the patterns that persist in your life, you will be able to stay one step ahead of the Ego. By understanding a pattern in your life, you are able to start releasing it, thus freeing up more energy to manifest the life that you desire.

Yes, manifestation starts with having an idea of what you want, but it is much more than that. Don’t be tied into the exact specifications in which that vision will arrive to you. Yes, there will be some qualifications necessary for manifesting what you need, however remember to watch for the wants of the Ego chiming in. Manifestation can also occur in steps, so sometimes you will receive something that is close to what you want, but then you also receive the ability to turn it into everything you desire.

For example: You wish to attract a new home for yourself. You need: at least 3 bedrooms, space for an office, solid construction, working appliances and a convenient location. You want: Cherry wood flooring, ceiling fans, a hot tub, heated floors, crown molding, etc. Now you can always add the wants later, so it is important to recognize the difference. If you get discouraged because you have attracted something which only has your needs and not your wants, you may miss out on a great opportunity.

It is like baking a whole cake in the oven, but when it comes time to take it out, you have put so many expectations on it, now all that’s left is a small crumb of perfection. Allow yourself to manifest the entire cake, then once you take it out of the oven, you can decide which piece to eat.

Astrology also plays an important role in your ability to manifest; the planets can influence the ease or difficulty at which you can manifest items or situations in your life. It is important to learn about your Natal chart and transits, to see if your timing is to your benefit, or if that timing will be a hindrance.

To manifest with the best chance for success; put out your intention, stay open, understand the Subconscious and use Astrology to your advantage. There is no need to send your request more that once. Once your intention has been sent to the Universe, it is an order ready to be filled. It is best to let that order run its course, because if you keep changing the order you placed, you will be altering the energy that has already been put forth.

Be patient. When you are patient and calm, you allow your body to be in a state of receiving. It is this receptive state that allows the information, situation or item you requested to be brought to you. Remember to live life, laugh and have fun, for this keeps your Ego occupied and free from trying to subconsciously control your manifestation order.

See what you can manifest today! Try for a free latte or magazine, or perhaps you want to hear from a friend that you haven’t spoken with in a while. Try starting out with small fun things to manifest and when you start seeing your efforts pay off, you can start upping your order with the Universe. Here’s to the Law of Attraction, may you use it wisely!

Understanding Your Own Truth

There comes a time in everyone’s spiritual development when you must ask: “Are you thinking for yourself?” During the course of your lifetime, it is easy to be bombarded with the thoughts and opinions of others. You have to look inside yourself and know that anything that comes from outside of you must be examined.

I recently went to see a beautiful movie, Avatar. One of the themes of this movie is to start thinking for yourself and to not keep doing things just because you were told to. Each soul has to face these issues within themselves and see where they feel authentic to their hearts and where they feel like they are just doing things out of fear or guilt.

Are you exhibiting the emotions and behaviors of others in your own life? Think for a minute if you use expressions that you may have heard your parents say, or if your manner of fashion comes from what you see in magazines. Where did you get your opinions about food, love, sex, religion, self-worth, music, money and politics from? Are those things what you truly believe, or are they taken from the mouths and minds of others?

Of course it is quite alright to agree with others opinions, but only as long as it is also your own truth. If you have just adopted the truths of others without truly looking at that issue yourself, then you need to examine those facts and statements.

This can be a very tricky practice, and the American media manipulates this tactic often to sway the hearts and minds of the masses. As Earth enters this Era of Cooperation, it is time to look at what it is that you truly feel about all things on all levels. Look inside and examine any fear-based beliefs and ideas of judgment or competition. For wherever they came from, it was not from the heart, not from the Ultimate Being (God).

When you hold a belief that comes from a place of Love, than you grow the piece of the Ultimate Being within you. When you hold a belief that comes from a place of fear, than you give your Ego more power.

The beginning of each year is often a time to make resolutions and resolves for the year to come. Make it your mission this year to understand why you have the opinions that you do. Understand where they come from, and see if they truly come from your heart, or if they are based on separation and lack.

Once you have examined these beliefs, you will be better equipped to live your life, a life of your own making. But, you must first know what you will be authentic to, Love or Fear? It is one of the most important questions that you can ever ask yourself.

What Are You Passionate For?

One of the greatest joys in life is the ability to live your passion every day. This takes a great amount of trust and faith in yourself, but also you must know yourself well enough to answer the question: What are you passionate for? Just let the answer pop into your head, you don’t need to judge it or analyze it at this time. Just allow the answer to be brought forth from somewhere deep inside: What are you passionate for?

Now that you have the answer or answers to your questions, begin to look at how you can live your passion in one way every day. Do you have passion for animals? Try volunteering at a local animal shelter. Do you have a passion for the arts? Look for community art projects to become involved with. Are you passionate for helping people? Working with children? Healing? Education? Whatever it is that you have passion for; there are always subtle ways in which to incorporate it into your life.

You will find that when you take time for your passion, that it begins to grow more and more in your life. This happens simply because when you are participating in something you love to do, you are in such a happy receptive state that you open yourself up to allowing the energy of your Soul Mission to grow inside of you. Once you start working your passion, soon you find that your volunteer position leads to side work, which then becomes a full time income, and before you know it, you are living and making a living doing your passion every day.

The beauty of this process is that your passion will always grow as long as you do not get in the way. What does getting in the way look like? Usually it comes up as trying to judge the situation in some way, like “no one makes money doing that” or “I don’t have the education, or experience” etc. To get to a place in life where you can have the opportunity to live your passion, you have to be willing to say yes to your passion even when others say no.

Your passion is always there and once you begin to recognize and experience it in your life, you will find that the emptiness you may have one felt is now gone, and the dread of going to work everyday has become the joy of waking up to experience a life where you get to live your passion.
