[02/20/23] Mind-Body Monday: Thoughts and Q&A on The Law of Attraction
Hello my loves, I recently went to a seminar to see Esther Hicks who is an American inspirational speaker, channel and author. She is the channel for a combination of non-physical entities that call themselves Abraham, and they teach what’s widely known as the “Law of Attraction”. She has co-written ten other books, presents numerous workshops on the law of attraction with Abraham-Hicks Publications and was the fountainhead of the information on which the 2006 film, “The Secret” was based.
The reason I was inspired to share my notes with you is because of the healing I have personally experienced that was in many ways supported and influenced by their teaching which I have been following for many years.
For those new to my group or youtube channel, in 2015 after suffering with debilitating pain for over a year while I was finishing my Psychology of Healing degree, I was diagnosed with a rheumatoid condition called Anklyosing spondylitis. The doctors told me that it was incurable and crippling and there was nothing I could do besides take Humira (a biologic I had to inject in my abdomen) and basically pray and try to live as well as possible until I became too crippled to enjoy it. After trying it their way, and feeling worse, I eventually ended up being bedridden (in this house) for a half a year.
During that time I did extensive meditation, reiki, and other lifestyle changes and I developed a healing method based on my twenty years of experience I call Thought Pain Therapy. I utilized some of the tools taught by Abraham, and found them a powerful addition. As of 2019 I have been fired by my rheumatologist as I no longer have any of the signs or symptoms of the disease..
So, this made me excited to share some of my notes with you. I will be sharing a link in the comments to her website if you have interest in learning more. I recommend starting with the book: Ask and it is Given for some foundational teachings, or going directly to The Law of Attraction if you are already familiar with their work.
So, to begin this work is based on the universal law of attraction or “like attracts to like”. And here are 12 statements that make up a synopsis of their teaching: You do not have to agree or believe any of these statements, I simply share them to give you an overview of their teaching.
1. YOU ARE A PHYSICAL EXTENSION OF THAT WHICH IS NON-PHYSICAL.
2. YOU ARE HERE IN THIS BODY BECAUSE YOU CHOSE TO BE HERE.
3. THE BASIS OF YOUR LIFE IS FREEDOM; THE PURPOSE OF YOUR LIFE IS JOY.
4. YOU ARE A CREATOR; YOU CREATE WITH YOUR EVERY THOUGHT.
5. ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN IMAGINE IS YOURS TO BE OR DO OR HAVE.
6. AS YOU ARE CHOOSING YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR EMOTIONS ARE GUIDING YOU.
7. THE UNIVERSE ADORES YOU FOR IT KNOWS YOUR BROADEST INTENTIONS.
8. RELAX INTO YOUR NATURAL WELL-BEING. ALL IS WELL. (REALLY IT IS!)
9. YOU ARE A CREATOR OF THOUGHTWAYS ON YOUR UNIQUE PATH OF JOY.
10. ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN AND POSSESSIONS TO BE EXCHANGED ARE BY-PRODUCTS OF YOUR FOCUS ON JOY.
11. YOU MAY APPROPRIATELY DEPART YOUR BODY WITHOUT ILLNESS OR PAIN.
12. YOU CAN NOT DIE; YOU ARE EVERLASTING LIFE.
I took notes during the class and I will share them and expound upon their meanings as I took them, so feel free to let me know when I am done if you have any questions or need further explanations.
Firstly, you have an inner being. While you are the physical being that you acknowledge in your physical setting, you are much more that that which you can see with your physical eyes. You are actually an extension of non-physical source energy. That broader, older wiser non-physical you is now also focused in the physical being that you know as you. They refer to the non-physical part of you, what we might call our spirit, or inner light, or holy ghost, or any other number of terms, they call your Inner being.
Their teachings state that our emotions are the most powerful guide of whether or not we are on the path of our desire. In fact they show the gap between desire and belief. This means, if you are having a negative emotion you are focusing on the opposite of your desire. While if you are feeling good that means the more allowing your thoughts are for your desire.
Negative emotion is the biological inner result between where you are and where your inner being is. It shows the separation.
Your inner being holds steady enthusiasm for your life. It never sees you as not enough or failing in any way. Thus when you feel negative emotion there is a tug of war going on within you.
Thoughts of concern disrupt the communication between cells. This can cause the beginnings of pain/breakdown and dis-ease. When we become fixated on fixing it can sacrifice our alignment. It is us giving our attention to subjects or individuals of which we have no control. This creates emotional suffering and in this gap between our desires of health and abundance and our beliefs of pain and lack there is a breakdown. It isn’t until we begin to experience pain or suffering that we notice things must change.
So what can we do? Let go of the need to try to “solve” anything. Just do your best to soothe yourself in whatever pain you find yourself, mentally, emotionally or physically. It is possible to be in pain and have a positive emotion. Soothe yourself into alignment with your inner being. Soothing is Solving!
We have a fear of wanting because we are afraid to disappoint ourselves by not getting it.
There is no lack in the infinite universe of anything we desire. Shortage consciousness is rampant on our planet, but our inner being has the energy that creates worlds, focused through us to create what we desire.
Deprivation is self-inflicted and not encouraged by source/creator. Faiths that tell us that salvation is only through suffering do not speak to an infinite universe that is here for us to know joy/knowledge/appreciation/love/freedom and empowerment
Have fun! Let your desire be the reason for things shifting without having to push or struggle so hard. There is no law of exclusion.
Secondly, People try to connect their emotional guidance system to other people rather than source, and that is not your connection to alignment.
I call this the difference between lateral and vertical sourcing. When we laterally source we are getting all our information from others. From the people we are around, from media, from our environment, and that information is not our personal truth, rather it is the beliefs of those that we read, watch and listen to. When we are vertically sourcing we are getting our information our truth straight from source, creator, god.
When we connect our emotional guidance system to others we feel the desire to explain ourselves, and that is where you get lost, they will never get you. It is not their job to do so. Nor is it your job to get them, or judge them, or condemn them for thinking in ways that are different from your own. When we calibrate to other people we worry about fairness. We try to control situations, and take responsibility for things that are not ours.
When we want other people to sympathize or empathize with us we end up speaking at length about our fears. Be watchful that you are not proving things you don’t want.
Recalibrating ourselves to the connection with source is our work. That and choosing different feelings up the scale of emotions. I will make a copy of the emotional guidance scale and post it in the group. You can see the emotions rated 1-22. At level 7 which is contentment or satisfaction, you get the tipping point. Everything at this level and above is about manifesting in alignment with your inner being and your desires.
In sum there are three laws:
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Deliberate Creation
And The Law of Allowing
Or Ask, Receive and Let it in.
