As we start the year 2013, I think everyone can agree that we need to adopt a new way of looking at things. We haven’t had all the information we need in order to live a productive life and to be happy. Our parents didn’t have it and neither did their parents. We’ve been fumbling around through life trying to figure things out, each generation doing the best they can with the information that was available. A few very brilliant people, who were willing and able to think outside the box, figured out a major part of how life works. But the rest of us sort of grope along, trying this, trying that; we attempt to juggle family and work responsibilities so that we can have some time for ourselves, to have fun, to think, to meditate, to read, to understand what’s really going on with life and to hopefully develop a higher consciousness.
During the last few decades, millions of people have become more conscious of what this life is all about and what they need to do in order to create a happy satisfying existence. “Millions” is still a small percentage of the seven billion who live on this planet. But numbers aren’t as important as awareness and intention; so a small percentage of highly evolved thinkers can affect the unconscious billions, in a positive way through the vibrational frequencies of their thoughts. That small percentage is growing every day as people learn about the four major laws of the universe, and put them into practice.
As in all things, it’s necessary to begin at the beginning. The Laws are as follows:
1) The Law of Attraction: like attracts like;
2) The Law of Deliberate Intent: what is intended and held resolutely within thought, word and deed manifests;
3) The Law of Allowance: allowing what is intended to manifest while using the observer mode in order to be awake and aware, and while continuing to hold the focus of what you want without being too rigid as to the outcome;
4) The Law of Balance: applying the first three laws and focusing within the present moment.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It may be simple, but it isn’t that easy (to get what you want) when you’ve only recently become aware of them, and you haven’t been consciously watching anyone model them for you. Ironically we’ve been unconsciously using these laws all our lives. Sporadically, haphazardly. That’s why we’ve been creating such chaos, as individuals and as a society. The Law of Attraction was popularized by the Esther Hicks books, which spawned many other copycat books, as well as the movie The Secret. In fact, the best source for the first three Laws is the Esther Hicks books. Almost everything else is a watered down version. Law number four is simply applying the first three while staying in present time.
Many people think the Law of Attraction is all about attracting physical things. That’s just one part of it. Anything you want can be attracted using that Law, for it’s working 24/7 every day of the year. Also anything you don’t want can be attracted. The Law itself is neutral. It just gives you what you focus on. The truth is, we get what we focus on, whether we want it or not. The Law gives you what you expect because expecting something is focusing on it. Fearing something is focusing on it. Being angry or disappointed much of the time is attracting more people or situations that will bring more anger or disappointment.
There’s really no reason in this day and age for anyone not to know these Laws and to be able to put them into effect. The challenge is that we haven’t been raised with these ideas, so they’re not second nature to us. It takes some determination and consistency to prove to yourself that these Laws work to bring you what you want and to prove that you have within your mind and body all you need in order to live a happy, empowered and fulfilled life. You have a built-in meridian energy system, which can soothe or heal. You have a built-in chakra system…vortices of energy that help heal and balance your body. You have a built-in emotional guidance system that not only tells you what you’re thinking, but tells you what’s coming. Most people don’t know how to use these built-in systems, because our parents didn’t know how; it wasn’t mainstream knowledge, at least not here in the West.
So we’ve been fumbling around, trying to stay healthy and live a happy life without knowing the basic truth about our own minds and bodies and how they work together with the Universe, through quantum physics. It’s nice to know that our thoughts create our reality, but HOW? Most thinking people are not willing to accept things on faith anymore. We want to know “how” and we want to know “why.”
Physicists are sneaking up on the truth more than any other scientific discipline. Truths about the Universe that mystics have known for centuries are now being explained by physics. But most of those explanations are not written in easy-to-understand words. However, when we can “get” that the vibrational frequencies of our thoughts and emotions impact the invisible energy all around us all the way out to the edge of the universe (as well as flood our own bodies) then we begin to understand HOW we create our reality.
The books at the end of this article will be very helpful toward understanding how to put the four laws into practice. This will help to create a new beginning for yourself as well as everyone around you, by positively affecting the sea of energy we live in. We were not designed to wallow in victim consciousness, behaving like crabs in a basket, pulling back anyone attempting to climb out because of programming, or “shoulds.” We were not designed to follow the leader and believe everything we hear from the media or from the so-called “authorities.” We were designed to think for ourselves, invent, create, soar and prosper, laugh, love and live life to the fullest. But in order to do that we have to think outside of the box. It’s dark in that box, and musty, full of old worn out ideas. See that crack of light? Can you pry the lid open just a little to see what’s on the outside? It looks interesting! Shout at somebody out there to help you open the lid. Maybe someone will push a book in through the crack. That book gives you more motivation! You push harder, and finally with great creaking, the lid falls back and you’re looking at a whole new world of ideas! Now you’re free to think what you want, believe what you want and assist others who may still be trapped in their boxes of old thought. You’re ready for new thought and A NEW BEGINNING. Happy New Year!
