We welcome you all to this discussion about Law Of Attraction exercises that can help you to consciously create more of what you want in your life. We’re going to talk about two basic types of exercise, and when and how often you might choose to use them, and why and how they can help you. We’ll also be thinking in absolute terms about what’s going on when you do them, because we want to be clear that although exercises involve DOing things, it’s your thoughts, not your actions or words that create your world. We would further add that there’s nothing sacred about any of these ideas, so take them, adapt them, and make them a part of who you are. When you own them, they will work for you.
But even before we get into this, here are some questions in three categories:
1. Where are you, and what do you want now?
2. In general, how confident are you that the Law Of Attraction works? And ..
3. Personally, how confident are you that YOU can get it to work for you?
So these first few are designed to have you think about where you are right now, and give some thought to the things you want. So ..
How do you feel about the quality of your life? In your mind give it a 1 to 10 rating.
Then ..what is one thing you’d like to achieve sometime soon? Or ..
What one new thing would like to experience in your life? Good.
Now in category two, let’s think a little about the Law Of Attraction and the mechanics of bringing those new things into your world. Here’s some questions on the law itself. Don’t think about the “right” answer. What’s YOUR answer?
Do you believe that the Law Of Attraction works? How confident are you about that? In your mind give that a 1 to 10 rating.
How powerful is it? Are there limits to this power or is it possible for a human to harness this power, to become a master at this and to change anything?
And for a master, how long does manifestation take? Is it possible to change things quickly? Is it possible to change things instantly? Good.
Now let’s get to the third component – the YOU part .. as you are now.
To the extent that you believe that you CAN change things, for that one new thing or that one new experience, how confident are you that you can personally make that change? And how’s that on a 1 to 10?
Now think about a potential time frame for what’s possible. By when do you think you could manifest those new things?
And now, to the extent that you’re confident that you personally can make changes, how likely is it that within that time frame you picked, you’re really going to do it? Will you actually, consciously, create that new stuff? How’s that on a 1 to 10? Good.
So now here comes, what is for the many of you, the final important question. It’s a biggie. If those last ratings weren’t close to a 10, WHY NOT? You KNOW you can do it because we only asked you about stuff within the range of what you believe you can do. Today we’re going to be talking about some more “how”s, but if you’ve been interacting with us for a while, you already know some powerful processes. So you also know HOW you could do it. So think about this question. What is it then that’s holding you back? Or asking that another way, what is it about that virtual reality of yours that’s so compelling, that you allow yourself hour by hour, week by week, and year by year, to be distracted from stepping into a different version?
In a sense it doesn’t matter what you’ve chosen as your philosophy of life belief-system. This week this one found himself engaged in a discussion of what’s possible with somebody who believes in the Course In Miracles. Now he’s long since rejected the concept of an omnipotent God, but you may not have. And it really doesn’t matter as long as the beliefs you choose do not hold you apart from what feels good and from pursuing your desires. What’s important is to go with your beliefs, to wholeheartedly embrace them, and step more fully into new possibilities for you and your world. What is it then that holds you back? We’ll come back that question shortly, but let’s start by looking at what we would describe as the basics.
There are three key things to keep in mind. Firstly, it’s important to remember that you’re not a physical being. The ongoing reality that’s you is a time-less consciousness. You’re an entity that thinks. You have experiences and make new creative decisions. If you’re further wondering from whence you came, we would add that you’re an extension of All-That-Is, the collective consciousness, so when you have experiences, you’re All-That-Is experiencing itself. This, and only this, is what’s “real” about you. Everything else is Your Story, the one you made up and continue to make up. The physical you and your physical and non-physical worlds are part of that Story.
Secondly, so how did you, and how do you continue to, “write” that Story? It goes like this. The Law Of Attraction responds to the belief choices you make, and the tapestry of expectations that result from those beliefs. When you made those past choices of yours, you got invested in them which stored them away in that subconscious of yours, mostly to never be thought of consciously again. Your Story is told by that tapestry. When what you believe consciously matches what you believe subconsciously, manifestation is immediate. That’s alignment. When what you “know” consciously is at odds with what you’ve stored subconsciously, then you’re pulling both ways. That’s misalignment.
So conscious creation is simply choosing a new belief and lining up with it. A new belief might be for example – money flows to me easily and serendipitously. The old subconscious counter-belief might be – money doesn’t grow on trees .. you have to work to make money. So then comes perhaps the least understood but crucial part – the lining up part, and that’s where these Law Of Attraction exercises become really important. The process is simple, but sometimes those old well-rehearsed beliefs can take a bit of shifting. But here’s the good news. On any subject, if you get relaxed, and go within and ask yourself what you really, truly, expect, you will know what’s stored away there.
The third key thing to remember is also good news, and that is ..your emotions tell you when you’re heading towards what you want (you feel good) or you’re heading in the opposite direction (you feel bad). That’s because who you are and what you want are all part of the same thing, and when you’re flowing with the truth of who you are, your emotions are positive, and when you’re engaged with a lie, your emotions are negative. As an exercise, think right now of one thing about the world that feels really good. That thought is in line with the truth of you. Now think of one thing that feels bad. That thing, whatever it is, is based on a lie. It’s not congruent with who you are.
So now we have the basics down, let’s talk about some “HOW”s – some Law Of Attraction exercises, and we’re going to talk about them in two categories – Expanding and Focusing.
Expanding –these are for getting you in touch with who you are. Use them regularly. Make them a part of your daily routine or use them particularly when you’re feeling a bit lost for what seems like no particular reason.
Focusing – for changing something in your expectation tapestry. Use these whenever your emotions take a dive, whenever you react negatively to anything.
Just be aware, as with everything else in the Universe, there is no sharp line between these two, but we’re making the distinction to help you decide when to use them and how they work.
Expanding processes are designed to get you out of the day-to-day and away from the tyranny of that physical world you’ve wrapped around you. The simple truth is, if you take the time on a regular basis to become the observer instead of just the player, to be in the stands and not just on the field, you will find that your perspective changes. The awareness of who you are becomes more present, the way you react to things becomes less automatic and more considered, and the ambient level of your vibration rises. Everything gets easier, and the easier it gets, the easier it gets. More and more things simply click into place. You start to inhabit a more cooperative universe. You become a master.
Focusing processes are designed to correct that expectation tapestry of yours – to help replace those old no-longer-serving-you belief choices and get your subconscious aligned with your new conscious choices. As you become aware of misalignment, which means noticing when you start to feel bad for any reason, these are processes to focus you on the mismatch, to discover what that lie is and bring it into the light. These are processes that let you step into a new place of BEingness in relation to any particular topic. As with Expansive processes, you’ll start to inhabit a more friendly universe, it’s just that these are your logical, deliberate, conscious-choice processes.
Let’s look at some examples. In the Expanding category, there’s what we call the 12-a-day and the once or twice-a-day exercises. Here’s a couple of 12-a-day examples.
The Observer – take 3-5 seconds and do a time-out. Simply observe yourself.
The One-ness – take 3-5 seconds and let go of everything. Give it all back to the Universe and just BE at one with All-That-is .. because you are one with All-That-Is and this is just knowing that.
Commit to a 12-a-day process and in 2 months you’ll inhabit a new you.
In the once or twice-a-day category, there’s meditation. Take 15 mins and focus on something simple – your breathing or a candle. Notice your thoughts and let them go. Be with yourself. Be with us.
In the Focusing category, for example, whenever you feel bad, there’s our Letting Go process which has all the key ingredients – welcoming in the bad thought, seeing the lie behind it, letting it go, appreciating yourself, and stepping into a world without that lie. We’ll give you the link for more detail on that.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, there’s the Abraham placemat process where you get out your ToDo list. Then on a sheet of paper (or placemat) put on the left only those things you know you will do today. On the right, list the things you are passing back to the Universe to handle. And it does.
There are a million processes and these are just some examples. You can use contemplation and meditation to expand your awareness. You can change belief habits by conscious choice and focus. So are you ready for change?
Are you starting to anticipate and relish the idea of stepping into something new? Are you ready for YOU to commit to becoming a master at this?
And if you’re hesitating, what’s holding you back? Is it that the world you’re playing in is so compelling, and so completely mesmerizing, and seems so completely “”real”, and external, and beyond your ability to change, that you allow yourself hour by hour, week by week, and year by year,
to be distracted from stepping into a different version?
Well, if so, we both understand and don’t understand. We DON’T understand because the shape of our consciousness is one that allows us to simultaneously see every version of our movie, and every version of your movie, from something you would think of as the start to the end point when you transition back to where we are, and back again, and every point in-between. Our perspective makes it easy for us to know the true nature of reality. We see you as you really are, and when we say things like, “If we were in your shoes, we would .. “ and so on, it’s because it’s so clear to us that you are this magnificent powerful creator who can move mountains, and if you would just think this way or that way, you could instantly change anything.
And we DO understand, because we also know that it’s this perspective of ours that keeps us from the leading edge of creation that you have stepped onto. It prevents us from experiencing the seeming solidarity of your world. We know that it’s only by allowing yourself to somewhat set aside all this conscious connection stuff, and to fully experience a world full of seeming limitations, that you can get into the delicious contrast of a game like Life On Earth. The adventure of it and the excitement of it that you are experiencing is something we can only experience vicariously through you. We are in awe of you.
We’ll get into this some more now in our longer discussion, but we have formed an idea. These folk who run this community get together each Monday, to some extent to plan what comes next, but mostly to support each other. We’re going to suggest that they put together a short three or four week 1on1 program for any of you who would like our help in finding which exercises work best for you, and setting you up with a routine for your life. We could call it a Course In Miracles, but that name’s been taken, and our program will be nothing like the complexity of that one. It will be something like A Path To Mastery, or A Design For Living, but these good people will work that out. We see the end of this movie, and it’s going to be fun.
Let’s finish this segment of our session here by encouraging each of you to take a stand with yourselves. Find Law Of Attraction exercises that work for you, and as we said at the start, make them your own. Make them part of you. Each of you has your own path, and each of you will find that path if you will allow yourself to know that you can. Choose to allow that.
And now to our longer discussion, where, as always, we welcome your questions and comments.
