There has been a great deal written about the Law of Attraction, especially within spiritual, self-help, and self-development articles, blog posts, and books. There was a book titled The Secret which launched theLaw of Attraction into the spotlight several years ago. The “secret” had to do with a person’s ability to focus on whatever they wanted, and through the power of their focus and visualization, it would become possible to attract what was wanted into their life. It seemed like a simple concept to understand and apply, and if it could produce results that easily, it was understandable why many people were drawn to it.
I discovered this book and it helped begin an awakening within me. I studied the teachers who were included in the video which was produced in conjunction with the book. The use of the Law of Attraction seemed to be the easiest answer for these teachers to offer, when answering most of the questions people were asking about their lives, which was usually related to relationships, finances, careers, or something similar. As I studied these teachers, it seemed they were answering the same questions posed by their followers. Yet I found myself asking different questions, which these teachers and the Law of Attraction alone could not seem to answer.
Since finding Law of Attraction, I have been on a transformational journey. Learning about it has been the catalyst for a much-needed change in my life. However, the most exciting aspect of my transformation was the awareness I’ve gained about our human connection to the universe and learning how the essence of life is based upon energy. I have gone further in my understanding of the Laws of the Universe than what I have learned from most of the teachers who teach about the Law of Attraction. I have learned that the Law of Attraction is one of many Laws of the Universe, and there are also many universal truths that make up our existence.
Now I want to share with you what I have learned in my journey, which is still ongoing. I believe there are others like myself who have questions which the Law of Attraction, and teachers of the Law of Attraction, cannot fully answer. Once you have discovered the many Laws of the Universe and universal truths, perhaps you will begin your own transformational journey of discovery and personal awakening. I do not claim to have special powers, abilities, or all of the answers to your questions. What I have is an ability to be quiet and listen to a collective consciousness, which has been called Infinite Intelligence or Source by many, and this is something anyone can train themselves to do with time and practice.
I hope you are inspired by what you read.
One Man’s Transformational Journey
Throughout my life I have always been intuitive, and had an ability to sense and feel very strongly, although I have not always been willing to accept the nature of who I am. I tried to be “normal” for a quite a long time. It took time to recover from that disposition and sense of dislike about myself. I was also raised in a very strict, religious environment as a young person, which meant I was taught I was supposed believe a certain way about the order of the universe. As an adult I abandoned all of those beliefs and held no religious viewpoint whatsoever, except to reject the dogma being taught by most churches as it did not agree with what I felt inside.
Later in life, I began searching for answers as I had a growing list of questions I could not readily find answers to as I wanted to know more about what I felt inside and how I was experiencing the world around me. Approximately nine years ago, I came across The Secret and that is when I was first introduced to the Law of Attraction. I read books and online articles published by many of the teachers from the book, including the teacher whose work it is based upon but is not featured within the book, Esther Hicks.
As I conducted further research into the Law of Attraction, I was surprised to find this idea has been around since the early 1900s. At that time, it was called the New Thought Movement. In 1900 William Walter Atkinson wrote: “Anything is yours, if you only want it hard enough. Just think of it. ANYTHING. Try it. Try it in earnest and you will succeed. It is the operation of a mighty Law.” The New Thought Movement continued in its popularity until the 1960s.
The interest in the Law of Attraction was not as prominent again until The Secret came out in 2009, although Esther Hicks had begun her teachings about the Law of Attraction in the 1980s. The book made it seem as if answers to life could be easily attained through the Law of Attraction. While I did find it was helpful for my transformation, I also knew there had to be more involved as I watched many of the same people attend Esther’s seminars and ask the same questions. I read many critiques of the Law of Attraction, including people who felt frustrated by the lack of magical responses to their visualized wishes.
I also observed those who sought out the teachings of the Law of Attraction did not ask questions which went beyond the usual topics of relationships, finances, and careers. I had those questions at times, yet I knew there was more to it than wishing for something to happen. I had to also take inspired action when I had cultivated a positive and productive mindset. More importantly, I had questions which went beyond those basic topics as I wanted to know about the connection between humans and the universe, and I wanted to know more about Source Energy.
This is when I began to learn to concentrate, focus, and quiet my mind. I learned this through my work as an author and writer, by tapping into a consciousness stream and finding an infinite source of ideas and thoughts. I eventually began to realize I was tapping into an infinite source of wisdom, which is the Collective Consciousness of the universe.
I began to realize the source of life is energy and by knowing this my mind, and my entire world, opened up. Let me now share with you some of what I have learned. What follows are notes I have taken as I have been connected to this Collective Consciousness thought stream.
Everything is Energy
I have learned that energy is one of the foundational laws of the universe. It is a big subject and one which is backed by science and research. What follows is a sample of what I have learned from my connection to Infinite Wisdom.
Energy is one of the foundational laws of the universe.
There are three types of energy:
- Static: That which does not move,
- Energetic: That which is in motion, and
- Magnetic: That which attracts like through vibration.
The human body can be static or in an energetic state. The human body’s functions are energetic, always in motion, causing organs and molecules to move in a continuous flow. The mind is magnetic and able to focus with clarity and attract similar thoughts, building momentum until what is focused upon become a manifestation.Energy does not have a starting point or ending point. Energy exists through a tension of positive and negative signals. Those signals create balance and sustains life. Energy has been called “God” because of its pure nature, and “evil” because of the negative fluctuations and variance in levels. Energy connects intellect and therefore has been called Infinite Intelligence.
Energy can retain images, words, and anything else referred to as memory. Intelligence is a form of focused energy that has been harnessed or channeled for a specific purpose. It is not possible for a person to live without negative energy, which means that there are going to be sensory moments, or feelings, that vary from pleasant to unpleasant.
The phrase “Source Energy” is helpful for some people as a means of understanding the Laws of the Universe. To say “Source Energy” can be confusing for others as it would seem to imply a person must find it. But energy is all around us. It is the source of life. Energy can be experienced through focus and transmission of thoughts.
