The Law of Attraction - What it Means
There is a force in the universe that we refer to as the Law of Attraction. You can find a lot of written material on this subject. The invisible force moves through us all whether we recognize it or not. It is a vehicle between mind and creation - a magnetic force of compatibility with our creator. That which we think will be created - good or bad.
A famous medium, Esther Hicks, who channels the combined non-physical spirit forces known as "Abraham", brings us volumes of information to enlighten, encourage, warn and teach we mortals who have chosen to occupy these physical bodies.
To quote Abraham - "You cannot look at that which you do not want and not join and perpetuate that vibration. Take your attention from that which is not in harmony with who you are, and, your 'now vibration' will adjust to who you really are - and then you can uplift others"
The point being, if you focus your attention to what you don't like or don't want, your vibration will actually attract that which you don't want. Change your mind and your thoughts and the reverse will occur, attracting positive energy to fulfill that which you want, and that which you are. This would apply to anything you desire - anything. Where people make the error is to think that after the original or initial thoughts occur to what you desire - a job, a relationship, an accomplishment, etc., you allow the negative, self defeating energy of denial to enter into the focus. By so doing, you cancel out or diminish the creative, positive force with the denial force.
Much like an attractive force set into motion by a need, a magnetic energy is created to fulfill that need. The instant a countering force in the form of denial or doubt enters in, the force of attraction to that need is diminished or rendered ineffective.
The challenge we have is to understand our true self - our inner divinity. Our Power; Our Choice. The magnetic force that produces the results in all our creations is based on our understanding of cause and effect. It is the Yin and the Yang, the positive and negative, the left and right...where one force can hinder the other. Our choice and power is to understand that when we augment our original creative thought with continued like creative thoughts in the same direction, we build a unifying force that moves us toward the realization of the goal we had in mind.
