The Law of At t r act ion is based on t he pr inciple t hat all mat t er is made up of pur e ener gy, which is in a const ant st at e of vibr at ion and spin. The LOA implies that thoughts and emotions are also energy, each having a unique energy signature. Every energetic frequency is in a constant state of attraction or repulsion with all others. With the recent emergence of quantum mechanics, this notion has been largely supported at a micro level. The Law of Attraction states that ?like attracts like,? and we are in a constant state of creating our reality through the energy we emit in the form of thoughts and emotion. We continuously interact with the fabric of reality (or quantum field), through thought and emotional energy, and whatever we focus on is likely to manifest. We are each creators of our own reality, and what we put out is what we will attract. 3 Things You Need t o Know Fir st 1. A key f act or missing f rom t he LOA is t hat we are creat ing on bot h a conscious and subconscious l evel . This accounts for the seeming contradiction between ?opposites attract? and the major principle of LOA, ?like attracts like.? We are still attracting the part of the whole that has been splintered and repressed into the subconscious mind. Basically, the actively repressed traits within ourselves are still charged, and this suppressed energy is also a point of attraction. Unt il we acknowl edge and int egrat e it , it wil l st il l pl ay a rol e in t he creat ion of our ext ernal real it y. 2. Our bel ief syst ems al t er our manif est at ion process. If you want to manifest $10,000 in one week, but your underlying beliefs are largely identified with a state of lack, you will only manifest more lack. This is because Law of Attraction works with both thought and emotion, and if you t ry t o think your way int o somet hing t hat you don?t believe, your emot ional react ion wil l support your unconscious bel ief s more t han your conscious t hought s. If you try to affirm, ?I will be abundant,? but don?t believe it, those beliefs will surface via an emotional response that insinuates the opposite feeling. At that point, you are literally putting the gas and the breaks on at the same time, making manifestation very difficult. One great tip to overcome this, as stated by Abraham Hicks, is to ?start general, and then get specific? with your manifestation process. Start with what you can believe, and continue to expand as you see evidence of your manifestations taking place. This allows your thoughts and emotions to be in resonance rather than dissonance. 3. We are al ways manif est ing according t o our highest val ues. Renowned behavioral development specialist Dr. DeMartini (who was also featured in The Secret) discovered that we all have an inherent set of values that is largely governing our behavior. DeMartini is quoted as saying, ?All of our actions are strategies to align with our values as efficiently as possible,? along with, ?all of our positive and negative emotions are feedback as to whether or not we are living in our highest values.? Essentially, the things we value the most filter our perception at a subconscious level. They are governing the way that we manifest, Page 39 Jan ., 2018
