Law of Attraction has served a major part in the awakening of consciousness of this planet. It was needed to help shift people out of victim consciousness into personal responsibility. The idea of “This is just how it is, there’s nothing I can do about it” to planting a seed of inspiration that they did have a choice in what was being presented to them in their life, and by changing their thoughts, their actions, their beliefs and their vibration they could affect their outer world.
This idea of Law of Attraction and “You create your reality” was introduced to us by several teachers over the last century such as Florence Scovel Shinn, Author of “Game of Life and How to play it” (1925), Napoleon Hill “Author of Think and Grow Rich” (1937), Jane Roberts who channelled Seth and wrote books such as “The Seth Material” (1970) to more recent times like Esther Hicks who channels Abraham and their teachings in many books such as “The Law of Attraction” (1981) and “The Art of Allowing” (2005) to Rhonda Byrne who wrote, “The Secret” (2006).
The main premise behind Law of Attraction is that “that which is like unto itself, is drawn” (Abraham Hicks). “You see Law of Attraction evidenced in your society when you see that the one who speaks the most about illness has illness; when you see the one who speaks most about prosperity has prosperity….you will begin to understand the direct correlation between what you have been thinking about and what is actually coming into your experience. You attract it all- no exceptions…Because the Law of Attraction is responding to the thoughts that you hold at all times, it is accurate to say you are creating your own reality. Everything you experience is attracted to you because the Law of Attraction is responding to the thoughts you are offering. Whether you are remembering something from the past, observing something in your present, or imagining something about your future, the thought that you are focused upon in your powerful now has activated a vibration within you – and the Law of Attraction is responding to it now…. To better understand the Law of Attraction, see yourself as a magnet attracting unto you the essence of that which you are thinking and feeling. And so, if you are feeling fat you cannot attract thin. If you feel poor you cannot attract prosperity, and so on. It defies Law” (Abraham Hicks, from the book “The Law of Attraction- The basics of the Teachings of Abraham” 2006)
Law of Attraction gave people back their personal power, it gave them back the idea that they did indeed have a choice and free will, that they did have some form of control over some aspects of what was happening in their lives, and that they had to the power to change it. The processes of Law of Attraction have helped to restore the balance of power in the collective which was needed to help humanity progress to where it is today and to where we are going.
For many Law of Attraction plays a huge part in their awakening as it helps them regain their inner strength. People like Esther Hicks are activators for people to wake up and realise their consciousness, (their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs) play a huge role in their ability to take personal responsibility of their life- to step out of victim consciousness and into co-creative mode.
Not all of what happens in your life is because of the Law of Attraction, however. When I look at the energy in a person’s life, approx 60% is free-flowing energy that consists of Law of Attraction, freewill and other tools a person can apply to co-create their reality, the rest of the approx. 40% is a fixed vibration that is made up of what we call karma and pre-determined life lessons, conditioning, (whether from childhood, generational patterns, schooling, etc) limiting beliefs and old patterns of behaviour.
So we have an opportunity with this 40%, as we have experiences that force us to grow and evolve, improve behaviours, upgrade old beliefs, learn our lessons, this fixed vibration of energy decreases allowing more space for Law of Attraction or other manifesting tools to work within. And it is when this happens, that people may choose to apply new methods of manifestation such as Quantum Physics or Consciousness Encoding for example and move on from Law Attraction. So the more we do the inner work, increase our awareness, or raise our vibration, the more we reduce this fixed vibration and allow more space for free will and co-creation to occur.
Law of Attraction becomes a starting point, a trigger, an activation for the soul to start breaking through the old limiting beliefs, that is its purpose when people realise they have free will and the ability to make better choices or call out the “Brules” or bullshit rules as Vishen Lakhiani calls them, that they have been conditioned into believing, they begin the journey of taking their power back, to make more conscious choices for what they want to experience, then this change naturally flows out into their life and world around them and is reflected back to them, empowering the belief that Law of attraction is working for them and they will continue to work with it to improve their lives.
