I’m sure by now most of you have either heard of, or read the phenomena that is
If you haven’t then I recommend you get hold of a copy of the book by Rhonda Byrne or alternatively watch the video of The Secret free online to get a good grasping of the basics to the Law of Attraction.
So many of us seem to be looking for happiness in the most unlikely places, such as; other people, material possessions and occupations, but have we ever stopped to ask ourself this crucial question:
What does the world want from me?…
Quite simply this is the central theme around the beautifully written ‘The Deeper Secret’ by Annemarie Postma, which I highly recommend for getting to grips with true purpose and meaning in life.
The Law of Attraction works on the basis that what we focus on and desire we attract and ‘like attracts like’ as well as ‘energy flows where attention goes.’
However, when not fully understood or misused this concept can cause a lot of confusion and even suffering and I will be revealing some of the fundamental flaws of The Secret here now.
I found my copy of The Deeper Secret at a spiritual convention I attended a few years ago.
The timing of this find for me was the biggest indicator as to how the Law of Attraction should really be used and applied in our lives.
By this point I had already read and received my copy of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne in the most unusual of manners, fully demonstrating in the most ironic way the powers of the Law of Attraction – and that once Intent and Desire for something is fully and unapologetically placed out to the universe, then the universe can and will make it happen.
The timing of my discovery of The Deeper Secret held great clues as to its purpose and the purpose of the Law of Attraction in its finality.
I was at a stage in my life where I was A) Asking many questions of myself and
B) Searching for my purpose.
The fundemental problem with the law of attraction if not understood in a fully metaphysical and spiritual sense, is that people of a greed based and egocentric manner may try to abuse and use it for the wrong purposes.
The Law of attraction is all about reaping what you sow and in that sense it should be utilized as a spiritual tool to both give and receive our hearts truest desires.
Not just for the next fancy car we’d like!
(although that would be lovely, wouldn’t it?)
Since discovering the Law of Attraction and all it entails I have come to some personal conclusions about this majestic tool which we all use on a daily basis, whether we are conscious of it or not.
The Law of Attraction is ALL about Energetic exchange, when we give without thought of reward we will always receive what we need, as and when, and often with interest!
However when we give with the thought of reward, how many times are we truly disappointed? This is the energetic exchange of the Law of Attraction – when we are fully and truly aligned to inner purpose and service in giving then the real magic starts to happen and not until then.
I have also come to feel that the fundamentals of the Law of Attraction are in accordance with a higher, spiritual realm that is working behind the scenes of our daily lives with our best interests at the forefront. You may call this higher realm, Source, God, or even Spirit guides, however this is where I feel the magic behind the Law of Attraction truly sits and it is up to each of us to continually activate and circulate it through offering up our talents, abilities and gifts to the world.
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” – Pablo Picasso
Sure we can visualize that brand new Lamborghini car, visualize, visualize, visualize, work hard and receive it, But what then? That brand new Lamborghini will only be new for a short while, and then sooner or later the next model will be released and thus it will inevitably never be enough…unless we truly draw that line.
Service to others and true inner alignment with our hearts and souls desires however, has the capacity to attract much more joy and happiness deep within, and then some.
“As far as I can tell, it’s just about letting the universe know what you want and then working toward it while letting go of how it comes to pass.” ― Jim Carrey
As you can tell throughout this piece I have quoted actor Jim Carrey. This is because Jim is the epitome of the Law of Attraction in its fully functioning, heart based action.
He has given so much joy, love and laughter to people through his many deeds, even dubbing his own form of service the ‘Church FFC’ – Freedom From Concern, that he has been empowered and enabled to continue to do this to the day in such vast amounts.
The universe supports the universe.
The Deeper Secret touches on the basics of the 12 Universal laws and these laws are essential to a true understanding of this majestic and metaphysical energetic exchange
– The Law of Attraction.
“You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world, and as you walk through those doors today, you will only have two choices: love or fear.
Choose love, and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.”
― Jim Carrey
