The Law of Attraction & Choice
What do you choose?
For those of us who follow politics and
current world affairs, this is a mighty interesting time to be
alive! The question is, how should spiritually aware people react?
How should the Law of Attraction be applied when we are surrounded
by people in authority who attempt to mold events with the aim of
destroying freedom and establishing tyranny?
I’m not going to go deeply into the
current political and economic situation, because we all know what
it is. The dollar is falling relative to other currencies; our U.S.
government is passing Draconian legislation destroying our
Constitution and restricting civil liberties; and the Congress every
year spends more than it receives in taxes, requiring the Federal
Reserve to print more money and thereby cheapening the dollar. Our
government prosecutes an insane war in Iraq that seems to enrich a
few government contractors, meanwhile placing the United States in
even more danger of a terrorist attack. Of course, this is not the
entire story, but this is an uplifting newsletter, not a bummer!
The question is, how should spiritually
aware people react? How does the Law of Attraction work in times
like these? Should we just ignore the craziness and create positive
vibes? Or should we DO something?
Let’s get back to basics. The Law of
Attraction states that “like attracts like.” There seems to be a
confusion among some LOA practitioners that you cannot pay attention
to something unwanted without immersing yourself in it, and creating
more of it. If we look a little deeper, however, we can see that
this is only true on the surface.
The Law of Attraction should not be used
to avoid involvement in life!
First of all, national events that affect
many are no different from personal events that only affect you. The
Law of Attraction works the same way in both cases. Let’s say that
you have a problem with your brother–in–law, who is a slob, and who
is always broke. Every time he comes into your house he tracks mud
and dirt all over your clean carpets. His finances are a mess, and
he’s always asking for money. Your significant other insists that
his brother is taken care of, even though the money is coming out of
your pocket. What do you do?
Well, you can just ignore the situation
and visualize a happy outcome. If you are really, really good at
LOA, this will work. I’ve done this myself with one of my neighbors
and their crazy barking dog. Just by visualizing the situation as
completely handled, the situation literally resolved itself almost
magically. Because a relationship is a two–pole system connected
energetically, when you radically and positively alter your
vibration towards your relative, you affect the way he responds to
you on the other end! (This doesn’t mean your brother–in–law will
magically alter his personality. You can’t affect the way he
responds to others, but you can affect the way he responds to you).
Some truly amazing healers use this
concept. If you have ever read the Bible, that is precisely how
Jesus the Christ created healing miracles in others. Needless to
say, JC was really great at applying LOA! He understood that the
genesis of all manifestation begins within yourself.
The difficulty is that when you are stuck
in a big problem, you are stuck in it. We all know that
feeling: you are resonating so strongly to the negative aspects that
you can meditate and visualize, but you don’t feel yourself moving
upward on the scale of emotion/ vibration. It seems hopeless.
(These situations are often referred to as
karmic, but they are better explained by vibrational entrainment.
When you are resonating strongly to something, the universe feeds
you more of it. You of course have the free will choice to change
your thoughts, but that is very difficult if you have already
established a very strong resonance to it).
When that happens, you feel compelled to
take action. The situation is intolerable, something must be
done about it! What usually happens is that you confront your
brother–in–law and lay down the law. This makes you feel better
because you’ve vented, but it doesn’t affect brother–in–law’s
conduct at all, because your solution is an exact vibrational match
to the problem. So of course, the problem is exacerbated. You can
continue in this cycle indefinitely, and many people do!
It IS possible to pay attention to
something and not resonate to it, however. The minister or doctor
who joins the Army to help and succor the troops places himself in a
war zone, where he or she is confronted daily with the gruesome
reminders of man’s inhumanity to man. Yet the minister maintains his
connection to Source, and becomes a favored counselor and care
In such cases, a horrible situation can
actually strengthen your commitment and connection to Source. This
is the key to applying LOA in unwanted situations!
We live in a vibrational universe. When
you allow your affinity for another to become sullied, you descend
on the scale of emotion/vibration. Your solutions become
vibrationally lower and less effective.
Your actions ALWAYS reflect where you are
vibrationally. Therefore, your solutions always precisely match your
emotional tone. Intellectually, your plan of action is always
congruent with your vibration. That is why people like George Bush
can destroy the dollar, destroy the Constitution and make a big
mess, yet consider that what he is doing is perfectly reasonable.
And to George W. Bush and to the universe, it IS perfectly
reasonable! The universe simply gives you more of what you are
However, you can be involved in a war zone
and still resonate to peace and love! Your emotional resonance
always dictates your intellectual parameters. This is one of the
keys to applying the LOA, and understanding the actions of others.
The true Master understands this
completely, which is why he/she is able to look upon others with
love and compassion, no matter what their actions. This does not
mean that she allows the situation to continue unabated, or allows
herself to be rolled. It DOES mean that he or she understands the
mechanism behind the actions of seemingly irrational and hateful
persons, and can, by staying within herself, devise solutions and
activities that are effective! They are effective because they
proceed from an emotional state that is connected to Source.
Emotions are very important, because they
are amplifiers to thought. Thought affects your emotional tone, and
your emotional tone affects the tone or quality of the thoughts and
choices you are capable of making. The combination of your thoughts
and your emotions determines your vibrational signal, and how
effective your actions will be. Remember that the universe simply
matches signals. That’s what the Law of Vibration and the Law of
Attraction are about. These universal principles guarantee that no
matter how unacceptable is the situation, IF you can visualize and
maintain your vibration in alignment with the goal, you will receive
congruent manifestations. That is often easier said than done of
course, but what is the alternative? More of the same!
When you understand how the LOA and the
Law of Vibration work, you can understand people like George W. Bush
and Dick Cheney. These are people who are simply stuck in a
vibration of hatred and psychosis, and it’s no good ranting and
raving about them. You also understand how Masters like Gandhi could
mobilize an entire nation, by remaining firmly within a positive
vibration, despite his immersion in a sordid reality. This is
precisely what spiritually aware persons, especially in the United
States, face today.
If you want to DO something about a
national or international problem, you must first orient yourself
positively to the situation. By that I mean, maintaining a vibration
(emotion) and embracing solutions that are higher on the scale than
the situation itself. If you are working to stop the war in Iraq,
for example, you must find a vibration HIGHER than anger. This means
you cannot join organizations that are resisting or fighting the
war, for this solution matches the vibration of the problem, and
contributes to it.
Find something to do that maintains
positive and constructive focus. For example, I joined Downsize D.C.
This group lobbies Congress and the government from the grassroots
level on all of the problems that our country faces. This is
something effective I feel that I can do personally to change the
situation. I also write books and articles and newsletters that
(hopefully) uplift and inspire others to a higher emotional state.
On a personal level, the only way to
resolve situations is to approach them in a positive frame of mind!
This doesn’t mean you have to be Gandhi, or some perfected guru or
Master. The Law of Attraction tells us, however, that in order to
improve the situation, we must resonate on a higher emotional level
than the current reality. Vibrationally speaking, the lower
vibration is subsumed by the higher one. The inner resonance of
every human being is to love and cooperation, because all life is
spiritual. We are all, quintessentially, liquid love and respond to
the higher vibration, even when we are stuck in a lower one!
(One must keep in mind that enthusiasm is
not an appropriate response to grief, however, for these vibrations
are too far apart. However, one can be quietly enthusiastic
inside, and consciously use the scale of emotion / vibration to
gradually raise emotional tone. This is explained in more depth in
The Vibrational Universe).
Similarly, the only way to affect
conditions on a national or planetary level is to promote solutions
that keep people in a positive frame of mind. Constructive solutions
that benefit everyone. Inclusive solutions that create harmony and
emphasize cooperation. You can easily judge the effectiveness of any
group by observing the participants. Where are they on the scale of
emotion? What is the emotional tone of the literature? From these
measurements, you can decide which groups are right for you.
It is vital that spiritually aware persons
become part of the solution and not resonate to the problem. It’s
our choice. For example, I have the choice to immerse myself in the
current reality. I have a number of sources that tell me what is
going on behind the scenes. I could spend all day discovering the
“truth” about the current reality. Because I am interested in
politics, I could become an “expert.” I could rant and rave and gain
notoriety. But that, of course, is nutty! I would be creating and
spreading lower vibes around the planet, and that is self–defeating.
One of the clever ways that The Old Order uses to fix its interest
with us, is to invite dissent. But remember that when you oppose
something you feed it. As Esther Hicks says, saying No is the same
as saying Yes!
What I am trying to point out in this
article, however, is that you can get beyond simplistic
constructions like that, and positively approach a negative
situation by focusing attention on the positive outcome, even while
dealing with the unwanted thing.
In your personal life and in your
political and group life, look for people and organizations that
resonate on the positive end of the scale of emotion / vibration.
Create positive solutions yourself and draw others into them! Use
the power of your social network to emphasize the positive!

You probably have your own favorites. Get
involved! Don’t fight the negative, for that just feeds power to it.
Create positive solutions based on cooperation, harmony and
inclusiveness. Use the Law of Attraction intelligently to change
your personal reality, and the world!

“Things are fine just the way

“I feel fantastic!!!!!”

consciousness has in its native, non–physical state.
