Through the Laws of Attraction
Get everything you want at a snap of your fingers? That’s something of legend, or are legends based on real things? Well it may not work quite like that but it can seem magical. The problem is how to train your mind to believe in it. The mind and the universe can be a curious thing that we have only touched on exploring.
Basically, when you give something attention it can be easier to manifest that thing. When people make a vision board it’s for a reason, to give your mind something to focus on, to see it, to look for details attached to that item, or see similar items in life. In a way to attract them to you or more specifically your minds attention. Like when you see a yellow car and say I’ve never seen a yellow car before. Then for the next week you are seeing yellow cars everywhere. Your mind didn’t care about yellow cars so it may have ignored them, pushed them to the periphery of your attention. Prioritizing the fast moving cars to avoid being hit.
Do you know someone who focuses on their losses maybe to the point of obsession. Complaining about this and that? They attract more and more negativity to them. They surround themselves with like minded people that like to complain about things and pretty soon they all can point at how others have it easy, they have it rough… woe is me…like attracts like, a whirlpool sucking in others and pulling them down. So it goes both ways,attract the good, attract the bad. Some people are not ready for change, you can try harder and harder to help them but in the end they might just pull you down or into their circle. The mind is a finicky thing so be careful not to fall into this trap. You can only set an example and show people tools but you can’t drag them into happiness.
This phenomenon has been called many things and interpreted in many ways over the years so this in nothing new I have discovered but when you realize it, when you see it, when it happens to you and you fully recognize it, you think you discovered a miracle or candy for the first time. It might be something small like wanting money so bad but not realizing that coupon u find in the grocery store, that discount you got, that quarter you picked up. Were those things you attracted or just now noticed? People can ignore little things but if you see the gifts presented to you however small and accept them maybe there is more around the corner. A job offer, a class to further your career, a promotion. Don’t turn your back or snub your nose to the little things. Accept them and be thankful, move on and upwards for bigger things.
One story I heard solidified some of these theories into actual reality. For example a race car driver losing control looks at the wall, no matter what he/she does, they keep heading towards the wall which results in a crash. The mind focuses on something even if that something is what you are trying to avoid. By focusing on it you are giving it energy, your mind is trapped looking at it and it comes to you involuntarily. In training a race car driver is taught do not look at the wall. Look where you need to go to the point of the instructor grabbing the trainees head and turning it. You want to look at your impending doom, it’s instinct. By focusing away from it, on where you need to go, you teach your mind something different. You give that energy, focus, attention on a point you need to be and your training and driving skills take you there. Does it work 100% of the time, no but those drivers that learn it seem to make miraculous saves and avoid things we can only dream about. That’s where the training comes in, the discipline to repeat something like that under pressure and not fall back into your old ways. One crash might have a person always looking at the wall in fear for the rest of their life never being able to avoid it again.
On a hilarious side note I was playing Mario cart and that dang banana peel was dropped there in front of me. I was sliding around the corner, I couldn’t take my eyes off the yellow peel. I thought to myself look away, if you focus on it you will surely hit it. I tried to look away, focus elsewhere but I could not take my eyes off it and continued to stare and boom, I hit it. This was all in a fraction of a second which seemed like 5 seconds of time. Time is another topic, don’t get me started. Afterwards it just clicked if I would have looked where I wanted to go I might have just slide right by it.
There have been many times in my life where I have done things and people asked, how did you do that? To which I reply, I just did it. People get frustrated and say but what about this and that, weren’t you worried about hitting this, failing at that. I just did it, I was not worried about failure or how I wouldn’t be able to do it, I just did it. I had a goal and focused on it and it succeeded. Don’t get me wrong some of those goals in life take an enormous amount of practice. You just don’t get into a plane and make it fly. You train and learn and eventually you become a expert then flying a plane seems like magic to others but you start small. Learn how to be positive, have goals, don’t concentrate on failures or losses. Those were learnings and steps to lift you to greater heights. You look forward to your successes and complete your goals.
Be grateful for what you have.
Have goals to work towards – Without a goal you are just spinning in place.
Learn how to recognized negative behaviors and bring negative events into a positive light.
Your mind needs to be challenged, it needs a purpose in life. Be happy in what you have accomplished and set a new goal to work towards. If you think you need something to make you happy then you will always be sad. The fact that you think you need it infers that you are currently unhappy. Work on your present moment, make it the best it can be and look forward to the next. What will you be looking at? The wall or your path.
