How is it that when your interest in a topic peaks, everywhere you look you find references to it.
Lately, I have been thinking deeply about the Law of Attraction; which cites that
Focus creates Expansion and Like attracts Like.
So I suppose that it’s not a mystery that I often pick something up which mentions the Law of Attraction!
I knew someone once that believed that her state of mind had nothing to do with whether she would fall pregnant or not. I was dumfounded!
Doesn’t everyone know that Thought + Allowance = Manifestation!
One of the great gifts that yoga has given me is to learn to patient. Patient with myself, my practice, my career and with others who may have not made the vital connection that we are all in fact intricately connected. Our speech is only a small extension from our thoughts. I believe that if we could empirically see the bad energy patterns that negative thought sends out into the ether we would all balk at the possibility of allowing self-indulgent down-ward spiraling mental dramas unfold in our noggins.
Meditation is a great time to practice the Law of Attraction. Many believe meditation is about emptying the mind, which sounds very nice (despite being against the very nature of the mind) but what is the point? What are you in fact doing? This belief has also lead some churches to blacklist the practice of yoga because to them an empty mind is open to infiltration of demons.
I usually see lights and colours when I meditate. My teacher poignantly asked me one day… But what are you doing? – Just sitting there and enjoying the light show?
Meditation is about training the mind so that we can control it effectively, not so that it can control us… Ever found yourself standing in front of the panty wondering how you got there?
Meditation is about cultivating one pointed concentration.
Your object of meditation can be many things depending on your desired outcome, but imagine if you focused on seeing yourself as you truly wish to be. Imagine if you spent some time every day meditating on your breath, finding the stillness inside you first so that you can finally hear yourself – your inner teacher, and then visualizing yourself being what you have always dreamed being, having achieved your goals.
Visualization is that start to manifestation. It is the key. Next is faith. BELIEVE that it is done. And then comes gratitude.
Gratitude is the key to happiness. And you don’t need to take yourself off to uni to study positive psychology to understand that…
I never saw “The Secret” but I believe that basically that’s what it is about. Setting about creating the life you want to live by FULLY believing that it is yours to be had. Your birthright.
Focus creates Expansion & Like attracts Like. If your inner world clashes with your outer world then you need to remove the influences that are limiting you now – as long as you remain in harmony with the laws of nature and you mean no malice.
So don’t jinx yourself. To put it simply, “positive in the mind, positive in the world – negative in the mind, negative in the world.”
