Sorry I haven't written anything for a while. The new school semester started back and I wanted to focus on my studies, as not to waste my time and money! It hasn't all been work work work though. I did stumble upon something interesting.
So I was flipping through Netflix a couple of weeks ago and happened upon The Secret. What was the secret?, I asked myself. I like secrets, who doesn't like secrets, next thing you know I'm watching The Secret. :)
Basically if you haven't watched it, its talking about the Law of Attraction. Which through further research I've discovered was one of the 7 Hermetic Laws, (Fascinating BTW) Correspondence. As above so below, so below so above. Which states, "The thoughts and images we hold in our mind will attract their physical likeness to us in our external circumstances."
I suddenly realized I've been a slave to this law my entire life and hadn't even realized it. How many times have I had a poverty mindset and received poverty and lack? A bunch. Or had a bad day and thought, "When it rains it pours.", and had something else fuck up. A bunch. See the thing about a universal law is that its in effect with or without you acknowledging it. Its not all bad, on the contrary, it can be a powerful ally if understood and applied positively.
So I decided to put it to the test. I have made it a point to be as positive as possible. Visualizing and vocally saying positive affirmations daily. Discarding negative thoughts as soon as I recognize them. (Which raises my vibration, another Hermetic Law) A form of spiritual alchemy I suppose. To be honest, negativity sticks out like a sore thumb nowadays.
The verdict: The past few weeks have been incredibly blessed. I've visualized peace and happiness and that's what life has rewarded me with. Also, one of my affirmations and visualizations involve money and abundance. I haven't won the lottery yet, or played, lol but during a date night with the GF a business idea came to me like a bolt and we have been researching and planning its manifestation ever since.
See the one gripe I have about The Secret is it misleads viewers with a seemingly magical wish and receive concept. No work, just think and poof! #Millions NEGRO PLEASE...no!
God or The Universe, whichever depending on your leanings, may send occasional blessings with no effort from you, but large big boy manifestations only come with ACTION! No magic pill, but you will receive divine inspiration and things will begin to flow and fall into place as you move towards what you desire. Faith without works is dead BTW.
In Mark chapter 11 Jesus curses a fig tree and the next day it was withered. Verse 23 "I assure you that you can say to this mountain, ' may God lift you up and throw you into the sea, ' and your command will be obeyed. All that's required is that you really believe and do not doubt in your heart."
Not to shove my religion down your throat but from a Judaeo Christian perspective God made us in His image and dwells in us. Which means He experiences a portion of His divine experience through us. Which if you think about is incredibly powerful. God created all that is with thought and word. So choose yours carefully.
To be honest there is so much more that I don't understand and that's o.k. I'll never know it all. I will say this though, I'm happy that I stumbled upon the Law of Attraction, so I don't have to keep taking bites of a shit sandwich if my day is trying to feed me one. And now neither do you!
So my challenge to you is to give it a try. Attempt to focus only on what you want and visualize it, feel it, as if you already have it in your minds eye. And see for yourself if your life doesn't begin to manifest what you set your intentions to. Here's to attracting blessings :)
Best of life, Kris
