Can We Really Trust the Universe and the Law of Attraction?
Do You Believe in Universal Laws?
It’s safe to be skeptical, isn’t it? It keeps us out of trouble! No one wants to be conned or taken advantage of. Think of those movie scenes or real life situations where we’re silently or openly screaming to the “victim” saying: “Don’t believe him! Don’t fall for it, it’s a ruse!” Do you sometimes feel the same about the Law of Attraction?
Does it work for you? Have you materialized or manifested everything you’ve ever wanted? Easy, right? Ha! For most people, universal laws are about as easy to implement as achieving those New Year’s resolutions.
Personally, I sometimes have wondered if I can trust the Universe and its laws. Haven’t you?
Something is Broken
It’s pretty easy to figure out that something is wrong in paradise. What should be a positive thing, the “Law of Attraction” has turned into a huge negative. And when this happens, we abandon the notion entirely.
But, it’s not the Law that’s broken. It’s our application or implementation of the Law. We’ve never been taught how universal laws work for human beings. Therefore, the benefits of these laws are misrepresented and end up confusing and frustrating us.
What we need is a better understanding of the laws. We need to tap our inner wisdom and the wisdom of nature. We can do this through our higher self. Let’s look at how this is accomplished.
How the Law Doesn’t Work
There’s a curious thing about human beings. We have thinking minds. Our minds, in all their power, glory and accomplishments have taken control of our lives. Our minds have crowned themselves king and queen and all knowing ruler.
As a result of this, the Law of Attraction (as with all similar universal laws) cannot work for us. The mind (when left in charge) wants to control things. And what a coup it is to control universal law! The “king” has to do it his way, manipulating the terms to his advantage.
In his selfish way, the mind takes the Law and adds discipline, tactics, management and duty. He then tries to implement it within a structure that keeps him in charge. The mind, when in complete charge, is out of touch with inner wisdom.
Universal laws cannot flow freely through the filtered, ego-centric mind. It doesn’t work.
How the Law Does Work
You are not your thoughts … You are not your mind. The mind is a tool, not your source.
Our true source is our soul, our “body,” or our Inner Being which is connected on a higher or deeper level with all things physical and all things unseen (our Higher Self.) This is the part of us that doesn’t control or manipulate.
When you allow your Higher Self to use the mind as a tool, without giving it power and control, your visualizations, dreaming, and emotions come from the Universe through your Source, not filtered by “Queen Mind.” The energy of universal laws can now work naturally, just as they were intended.
This free flow of energy leads to action, enthusiasm and a sense of purpose. And that’s how the wisdom of Nature works. It’s perfectly “natural.”
Making it Work for You
You are perfect just as you are. You’re where you should be, what you should be, and living the life that is perfect for your growth. Your mind won’t allow you to believe this, will it? That’s why you must “get out of your head,” drop the skepticism and access your “inner critter.”
It shouldn’t be a fight and a struggle. You’re not out to get the Law of Attraction to work for you. It’s about letting it work for you. Here’s what I recommend you do:
- Observe Yourself Without Judgment
Non-judgmental observation is critical. Watch yourself. Notice your thoughts, words, actions. Sense your feelings and reactions. Don’t try to change anything, just notice. This is a practice that will move your self awareness from the mind down into your Inner Being.
- Visualize What You Want or Who You Want to Become
Use your mind as the magnificent tool it was meant to be. Create pictures of your goals and desires. Hold those pictures as long as you can without attachment to them. This means that you put no “do or die” constraints on their manifestation. And you don’t worry about how.
- Allow Everything That Materializes (Manifests
It’s not about discipline. That’s the mind in charge. Allowing isn’t just about allowing things to manifest for you in physical form. Allowing means that you surrender. You know that Universal Law works through “the body” (you!) not the mind.
- Act in Faith (Confidence)
Don’t sit still. I don’t mean to force the issue. Again, that would be counterproductive. But, the universe is about movement. When we’re active, in motion, then the flow of energy has a conduit through which to provide for us.
So finally, there’s no reason to play it safe and nothing is broken. Now that you know how it works, give it a try again. It’s just a matter of being in congruity with the law. And the way to do that is to connect with it on its level – through your Inner Being we sometimes call the Higher Self.
