law of attraction

What We’re About

There is an ancient spiritual adage, "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." I teach Law of Attraction from a spiritual perspective. Without the connection to Consciousness - Source - AllThatIs, it just doesn't make any sense. There is no fluffy bunny - "just feel good" thinking here; everything I give you is grounded in science or the oldest spiritual wisdom, or both. Information here is practical, usable and will deepen your understanding, and consequently, give you better and better results.

If like attracts like: Why do opposites attract?

Your world is a grand mirror,
constantly reflecting
your state of consciousness.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Neville)

Law of attraction is always working. It is just that some confusion exists about how it works. A deeper understanding is needed to know why we’re getting what we don’t want and how to change it to get what we want.

Like attracts like according to our dominant vibrations. Another way of saying this is we attract according to our beliefs. Law of Attraction is not working according to our thoughts, wants or desires UNLESS our beliefs and dominant vibrations are in harmony with them. When we see someone attracting a particular situation, we can never know what their vibration is on the subject.

So if we have a desire, but our dominant beliefs or thoughts are of lack, then we get lack. This is an appearance of opposites but it is actually like attracting like. If we want a relationship, but our dominant belief is that we are unworthy, either we don’t get a relationship, or we get one that makes us feel unworthy. If we have a strong belief in difficulty and struggle, we may sometimes get what we want and lose it. When we want wealth and financial ease but we constantly think about how much we want it and don’t yet have it, we draw to us experiences of lack and frustration.

Our dominant vibe may not be what we think it is. Often we are too close to it to see it for the belief that it is. Our beliefs are transparent to us; we act through them as if we are looking through a dirty pane of glass. Often, we take our dominant vibes as reality and we act on these beliefs without realizing how strongly we are influenced by them. Remember: beliefs are ideas about reality, not reality itself. With awareness we can see these beliefs for what they are and not the ‘reality’ that we take for granted.

Our dominant creating mechanism is moving toward wholeness. We and I include all consciousnesses on earth – are always moving toward greater self expression and greater expression of Source through us. So whatever we vibrate is what we get more of. We get to chose whether our self expression will be joyful or limiting.

So the question always arises: Why do positive poles of a magnet repel and opposite poles attract? A magnet is a device that allows the flow of magnetic energy. That is its ‘wholeness’. Two positive poles together don’t allow this flow. Consequently they don’t create a ‘wholeness’ for the magnet. A positive and a negative allow the magnet to express it’s fullness as a ‘being’ that flows of energy. When two or more magnets are placed end to end, they create an even bigger magnet. Self expression at its greatest. (“Whenever two or more are gathered in my name…”)

Two similar energies do not create harmony or a chord. Two similar energies are just more of the same – there is no contrast that creates beauty, pattern, or energy. For balance, there has to be an up and a down. Even light only appears in relation to its lack and a vibrating wave has both an up phase and a down phase – not just an up.. A victim has a need to feel victimized. Another victim would not fulfill the need. An aggressor has a need to be aggressive toward a person with a victim consciousness. Two aggressors cancel each other out. Remember, in elementary school, as soon as someone stepped up to the bully, he’d stop being a bully and they often ended up as friends?
The mystery of ‘like attracts like’ might be better expressed as complementary energies coming together to create a ‘whole’. Consider it as polarities rather than opposites. Think of a lock and key, or a hand and glove or a hotdog and bun. So with greater wholeness as the objective, it can sometime appear that opposites attract, when actually it is all for the greater expression of the One.

Not sure this is clear to you all, but it sure is clear to me. (laughing)

  • Great ! Are you going to keep writing articles? I read all your posts.

  • Greetings there, just felt the urge to express how cool this blog is!

  • I had to read your post three times to get the full meaning of it. I appreciate reading what you have to say. It’s unfortunate that more people do not understand just how powerful The Law of Attraction is. Keep up the good work.

  • hey, nice blog…really like it and added to bookmarks. keep up with good work

    What an awesome way to describe such a complicated process! Although i’ve heard the “saying”, I didn’t quite grasp the concept. I think I do now-thanks to the way you so skillfully explained it.

    Brandy, Thanks so much for calling my post “awesome!” Your comment makes it all worthwhile. Thanks for reading and stay in touch – I’ve got lots more articles to put up.

    Thank you for your explanation of the Law of Opposites. It helped me have a better understanding of a few very important things!:-)

    What does science tell about the Law of Attraction? It tells that LoA doesn’t work. Do you need a proof by scientific evidence? Read this:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vanessa-van-edwards/law-of-attraction_b_2082921.html
    http://www.heatherkappes.com/?page_id=68
    But if you are a hard die believer in LoA, affected by cognitive bias, then please refuse to believe in science. For instance refuse to believe that your personal computer was built by using science knowledge, refuse to believe in Newton gravity law, refuse to believe in scientific evidence in general. Program your brain with positive thinking like a robot. Don’t accept your feelings as they are. Don’t love yourself as you are. Throw your life experience and your own judgment into the trash. Never desire to save your emotions. Thanks for reading.
    Cheers!

    Law of Attraction is a theory, not a absolute law. What a person general thinks about most of the time absolutely colors their life because what we think determines our actions and results. If it were an absolute law like the law of gravity it would be absolutely evident and not something that we get vague glimpses of here and there. In the book Think and Grow Rich notice how much intelligence, planning, action, trial, and error went into the creation and operation of the businesses used as examples. Notice how many people can tell you exactly how it works, but they face the same ups and downs as any other human. The idea that lack of understanding law of attraction is why it doesn’t work is crazy. I don’t understand the law of gravity and yet it has been obvious to me my whole life. Esther Hicks has been talking about it for 30 years or more and her life is just life is just like everybody else’s. Love yourself, be positive, enjoy your life, and please stop claiming to have the answers to the universe.

  • Yes Jessica The Law of Attraction is an absolute law it just isn’t instant like gravity. With gravity it happens instantly, with the law of attraction whatever energy you put out in Universe, the exact way you put it out will come back. Thoughts doesn’t attract physical things only the non physical. To attract money you must give money, to attract love you must give love, it’s impossible to attract money by thinking about it, only an opportunity but when you give money 100% freely, you literally attract money itself.

    The law of attraction does work.

    Example: The victim and the bully are alike, both are consumed by fear and confusion. The expression of the energy is different but the energy is the same – Pain, Fear, and a lack of control.

    The victim’s displays a lack of control by allowing others to abuse them.

    The Bully display’s a lack of control through aggression.

    Once the Vibrational energy is resourced balance the magnetism will change.
