The Law of Attraction
Right now, movies like “The Secret,” and “What the Bleep Do We Know?” are all the rage. People try to use their intellect to manifest, or create what they want. Sometimes they even attempt to create what they need.
Yet invariably, the results come sporadically. Sometimes they get part of what they ask for, other times, they get one of the things they want, but not the other. And other times still, they manifest nothing.
From Descartes, Cogito Ergo Sum, “I think therefore I am,” to I think there for I get, is a huge jump. I am not saying that one should not get what they want. But I am saying that there is more to creating your own reality then just getting the objects you wish for.
First and foremost, by definition, if what you think creates your reality, what you are getting now, is by definition, what you thought of. In other words, at some point, you thought of what you are getting now.
When I work with clients I start with this premise when we begin. To create your perfect life, one must understand, that at some point, you thought the life you had now would be perfect.
So you must understand why you wanted the experiences in your life that you have now. Many people say to me, “That is easy for you to say, your life is great.” When I first tested this model, I was in a divorce, I had surrendered everything, and had my name slandered.
Even these lessons taught me something.
For example, I wanted to know what my parents went through was like. I also wanted to be there for myself as a child, whom my son can represent. Furthermore, I needed to break with dogmatic doctrine in a clear way, my ex-wife. Again, these are just examples, not facts per se.
Each of the lessons shows a person different things. So before you ask for a new life, you may want to accept and understand the one you have.
