We have been talking about how the law of attraction works to bring you more and more of those things that you are giving your attention to. For many people, that means they get more and more things and experiences they do not want. But this can be changed. The question is, how?
Many people who try using the law of attraction start by doing affirmations. I am wealthy. I am abundant. I have the perfect body shape. That kind of thing. These affirmations can be very helpful, and effective, if used properly. The problem is that, for many people, they could go on saying them for a hundred years, and nothing would change. Why is this? Because deep down, they do not really believe in what they are saying. It is as though they have two “voices” speaking at the same time. One is doing the affirmation and the other is saying, No I’m not, No I haven’t.
That other “voice” is showing what the person is really thinking and feeling, and this is the part of you that is doing the attracting. There are many different names for this aspect of oneself. Some people call it the subconscious. Whatever you call it, it is the sum total of all your stored-up thoughts and life experiences to date, going right back to your childhood. The way to change the things you are attracting is to change the “settings” on this, to give you more control over it. But how can you achieve that?
We have found that meditation is probably the best way. So you might ask, does that mean I have to walk barefoot up to an almost inaccessible Himalayan cave to find a yogi to teach me, or live in a Zen monastery in Japan for 20 years? These might well be the best way to learn meditation, but for most people they are not realistic options. So do you sign up to a meditation class, and spend 3 hours a day sitting in meditation? Again, although this is slightly more acceptable, still many of us find it hard to commit several hours a day.
The good news is that there are now programs using audio technology which greatly speed up the process of meditation, so it is now possible to practise deep meditation, while at the same time carrying on with a full and busy lifestyle, without stress.
