The Universal Law of Attraction

Many times in my nearly 7 decades of life have I noticed that I attract what I think or do. As a kid I boosted candy, well damn if I didn't attract a gal pal in Junior High who was a pro level (if not pay,) shoplifter. Pachuco in style, strange, a gutter denizen. Was pals with her til I left that Middle School.

Later, I was so very attracted to movies and studying acting, and reading dime novels. When I saw BOGART in The BAREFOOT CONTESSA, I was in love for the first time. That was the man I really wanted, and it wasn’t long before I met a Hollywood playboy screenwriter with a total Bogart persona, down to the fact that this writer had actually been Ava's best suitor for a while in Spain where he was doing a Cary Grant film with Sinatra (who was still dingy about Ava.) And my sweetie was the mutual friend during that rift . I won’t say that Ava was my pal's way of getting to Frankie for whom he worked writing teleplays decades later, he wanted the barefoot contessa for her own wild child self and I personified that for the years I dated him.

After I flunked show biz and Husband 101, (getting no degree in child support or alimony,)  when I was forced to dumpster dive, I  did a double law of attraction. I attract fellow DUMPSTER DIVERS!  MY computer keyboard broke and my PC wouldn't boot. I sighed and realized I was out of business, no horoscopes were going to get done and none of my four thousand free seminars on "HOW TO DO EVERYTHING AND BE A SUCCESS" would get out there. My websites are my HINDSIGHT garden as it were.....they weren't going to get written either....well. I got up despondently to go get catfood, lotta mouthes to feed, and driving my untagged car on back streets to corner market, found a few blocks away, even at 7 pm, a garage sale. But WHAT A GARAGE SALE! The gal running it had a garage door open on what appeared to be a CANDY STORE full of COMPUTERS and peripherals. Dozens of New Pc's she'd found, hard drives, monitors, keyboards. She outfitted me free, saying hey she'd found them for free. Why charge?  So the world I inhabited came back at me generously. And took care of Momma. I know what happened. It was the law of what you are, do, think, need, want and believe, you will attract.  Read then ----

Everything in your life and the lives of those around you is affected by the Law of Attraction. It is the basis of everything that you see manifesting. It is the basis of everything that comes into your experience. An awareness of the Law of Attraction and an understanding of how it works is essential to living life on purpose. In fact, it is essential to living the life of joy that you came forth to live.

The Law of Attraction says: That which is like unto itself, is drawn. When you say, Birds of a feather flock together, you are actually talking about the Law of Attraction. You see it evidenced when you wakeup feeling unhappy, and throughout the day things get worse and worse and at the end of the day you say, I shouldn’t have gotten out of bed. You see the Law of Attraction evidenced in your society when you see that the one who speaks most of illness has illness; when you see that the one who speaks most of prosperity has prosperity. The Law of Attraction is evident when you set you radio dial on 630AM and expect to receive the broadcast from the transmitting tower of 630AM, because you understand that the radio signals between the transmitting tower and your receiver must match. As you begin to understand" or better stated, as you begin to remember" this powerful Law of Attraction, the evidence of it, which surrounds you will be easily apparent, for you will begin to recognize the exact correlation between what you have been thinking about and what is actually coming into your experience. Nothing merely shows up in your experience. You attract it, all of it, no exceptions.

 

Giving Thought to something is Inviting It The more you come to understand the power of the Law of Attraction the more interest you will have in deliberately directing your thoughts for you get what you think about, whether you want it, or not.

 

Without exception, that which you give thought to is that which you
begin to invite into your experience. When you think a little thought of
something that you want, through the Law of Attraction, that thought
grows larger and larger, and more, and more powerful. When you think a
thought of something you do not want, the Law of Attraction draws unto
it, and it grows larger and larger, also. And so, the larger it grows,
the more power it draws unto it, and then the more certain you are to
receive the experience.

 

When you see something you would like to experience and you say, Yes,
I would like to have that, through your attention to it you invite it
into your experience. However, when you see something that you do not
want to experience and you shout, No, no, I do not want that!
through your attention to it you invite it into your experience. In this
attraction-based Universe, there is no such thing as exclusion. Your
attention to it includes it in your vibration, and if you hold it in
your attention or awareness long enough, the Law of Attraction will
bring it into your experience, for there is no such thing as No.
To clarify, when you look at something and shout, No, I don’t want
to experience that; go away! Then what you are actually doing is
calling it into your experience, for there is no such thing as No
in an attraction-based Universe. Your attention to it says, yes, come
to me this thing I do not want!

 

Fortunately, here in your physical time-space reality, things do not
manifest into your experience instantaneously. There is a wonderful
buffer of time between when you begin to think about something and the
time it manifests. That buffer of time gives you the opportunity to
redirect your attention more and more in the direction of the things
that you actually do want to manifest in your experience. And long
before it manifests (actually, when you first begin to give thought to
it), you can tell by the way you feel whether it is something you want
to manifest or not. If you continue to give your attention to X
"whether it is something you want, or something you don't want
it will come into your experience.

 

These Laws, even if you do not understand that they do, affect your
experience even in your ignorance of them. And while you may not be
aware of having heard of the Law of Attraction, its powerful effect
is evident in every aspect of your life experience.

 

As you consider what you read here and begin to notice the correlation
between what you are thinking and speaking and what you are getting, you
will begin to understand the powerful Law of Attraction. And as you
deliberately direct your thoughts and focus upon the things that you do
want to draw into your experience" you will begin to receive the life
experience that you desire on all subjects.

 

Your physical world is a vast and diverse place full of an amazing
variety of events and circumstances, some of which you approve of (and
would like to experience) and some of which you disapprove of (and would
not like to experience). It was not your intention as you came forth
into this physical experience to ask the world to change in order to
accommodate your opinions of the way things should be, by eliminating
all things that you do not approve of and adding to the things you do
approve of.

 

You are here to create the world around you that you choose, while you
allow the world "as others choose it to be" to exist, also. And while
their choices in no way hinder your own choices, your attention to what
they are choosing does affect your vibration, and therefore your own
point of attraction.

 

My Thoughts Have Magnetic Power The Law of Attraction and its magnetic
power reaches out into the Universe and attracts other thoughts that are
vibrationally like it and brings that to you: Your attention to
subjects, your activation of thoughts, and Law of Attraction
response to those thoughts is responsible for every person, every event,
and every circumstance that comes into your experience. All of these
things are brought into your experience through a sort of powerful
magnetic funnel, as they are vibrational matches to your own thoughts.

 

You get the essence of what you are thinking about, whether it is
something you want or something you do not want. That may be
unsettling to you at first, but in time, it is our expectation that you
will come to appreciate the fairness, the consistency, and the
absoluteness of this powerful Law of Attraction. Once you understand
this Law, and begin to pay attention to what you are giving your
attention to, you will regain control of your own life experience. And
with that control you will again remember that there is nothing that you
desire that you cannot achieve, and nothing that you do not want that
you cannot release from your experience.

 

Understanding the Law of Attraction and recognizing the absolute
correlation between what you have been thinking and feeling and what
is manifesting in your life experience will cause you to be more aware
of the stimulation of your own thoughts. You will begin to notice that
your own thoughts may be stimulated from something you read, or watch on
television or hear or observe from someone else's experience. And once
you see the effect that the Law of Attraction has upon these thoughts
that begin small and grow larger and more powerful with your attention
to them, you will feel a desire within you to begin to direct your
thoughts to more of the things that you do want to experience. For
whatever you are pondering, and no matter what the source of stimulation
of that thoughtŠ as you ponder that thought, the Law of Attraction
goes to work and begins to offer you other thoughts, conversations, and
experiences that are of a similar nature.

 

Whether you are remembering the past, observing the present, or
imagining the future, you are doing it right now, and whatever you are
focusing upon is causing an activation of a vibration that Law of
Attraction is responding to. At first you may be privately pondering a
particular subject, but if you think about it long enough, you will
start to notice other people beginning to discuss it with you as the Law
of Attraction finds others who are offering a similar vibration and
brings them right to you. The longer you focus upon something, the more
powerful it becomes; and the stronger that your point of attraction is
to it, the more evidence of it appears in your life experience. Whether
you are focusing upon things you want or things you do not want, the
evidence of your thoughts continually flows toward you.

 

Welcome, Little One, to Planet Earth - You may be feeling that it would
be easier to be hearing these words if they had come to you on the first
day of your experience upon this Planet Earth. And if we were talking to
you on your first day of physical life experience, this is what we would
be saying: Welcome, little one, to Planet Earth. There is nothing that
you cannot be, or do, or have. You are a magnificent creator, and you
are here by virtue of your powerful and deliberate wanting to be here.
You have specifically applied the wondrous Law of Deliberate Creation,
and by your ability to do that, you are here.

 

Go forth, giving thought to what you want, attracting life experience to
help you decide what you want, and once you have decided, giving thought
only unto that.

 

Most of your time will be spent collecting data that will help
you decide what it is you want. Your real work is to decide what you
want and then to focus upon it, for it is through focusing upon what you
want that you will attract it. That is the process of creating: giving
thought to what you want, so much thought, and such clear thought, that
your Inner Being offers forth emotion. And as you are giving thought,
with emotion, you become the most powerful of all magnets. That is the
process by which you will attract (what you want) into your experience.

 

Many of the thoughts that you will be thinking will not be powerful in
their attracting, not in the beginning" not unless you stay focused
upon them long enough that they become more. For as they become more in
quantity, they become more in power; as they are becoming more in
quantity, and more in power, the emotion that you will be feeling, from
your Inner Being, will be greater.

 

When you think thoughts that bring forth emotion" you are accessing the
power of the Universe. Go forth, (we would say) on this first day of life
experience, knowing that your work is to decide what you want and
then to focus upon that.

 

But we are not talking to you on the first day of your life experience.
You have been here for a while. Most of you have been seeing yourself,
not only through your own eyes (in fact, not even primarily through your
own eyes) but through the eyes of others; therefore, many of you are not
now currently in the state of Being that you want to be.

 

Is My Reality Really All That Real? We intend to offer you a
process whereby you can achieve the state of Being that is of your
choosing so that you can access the power of the Universe and begin
attracting the subject of your wanting, rather than the subject of what
you feel is your actual state of Being. For, from our perspective, there
is a very great difference between that which now exists which you
call your reality" and that which your reality really is.

 

Even if you sit in a body that is not healthy or in a body that is not
the size, shape, or vitality, that you choose; in a lifestyle that does
not please you; driving an automobile that embarrasses you; interacting
with others that do not bring you pleasure, we want to assist you in
understanding that while that may seem to be your state of Being, it
need not be. Your state of Being is the way you feel about yourself in
any point in time.

 

Your words will not bring you immediate manifestations of what you are
asking for, but the more often you say them, and the better you feel
while you are saying them, the purer or less contradicted your vibration
will be. And soon your world will be filled with these things you have
spoken about. Words alone do not attract, but when you feel emotion
when you speak, that means your vibration is strong and the Law of
Attraction must answer those vibrations.

 

What Is the Measure of Our Success? The achievement of anything that you
desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy, money,
relationships, or things. But if you will let your standard of success
be your achievement of joy, everything else will fall easily into place.
For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with
the resources of the Universe.

 

You cannot feel joy while you are focusing upon something not wanted, or
the lack of something wanted; therefore, while you are feeling joy, you
will never be in the state of contradicted vibration. And only the
contradiction in your own thoughts and vibration can keep you from the
things you desire.

 

We are amused as we watch the majority spending most of their life
seeking a set of rules against which they can measure their life
experience, looking outside of self for those who will tell them what is
right or wrong, when all along they have within them a Guidance System
that is so sophisticated, so intricate, so precise, and so readily
available.

 

By paying attention to this Emotional Guidance System, and by reaching
for the best-feeling thought that you can find right now from wherever
you are, you will allow your Broader Perspective to help you move in the
direction of the things that you truly want.

 

As you sift through the magnificent contrast of your physical timespace
reality, consciously aware of the way you feel, and deliberately guiding
your thoughts toward those that feel better and better, in time you
begin to see your life through the eyes of your Broader Inner Being. And
as you do so, you feel the satisfaction of being upon the path that you
have chosen from your Non-physical perspective when you made the
decision to come forth into this wonderful body. For, from your
Nonphysical vantage point, you understood the eternally evolving nature
of your Being and the promise that this Leading Edge contrasting
environment held. You understood the nature of your magnificent guidance
system and how, with practice, you could see this world as your Inner
Being sees it. You understood the powerful Law of Attraction and the
fairness and accuracy with which it responds to the free will of all
creators.

 

By reaching for the best-feeling thought you can find, you reconnect
with that perspective, and you shiver with exhilaration as you reconnect
with your purpose, with your zest for life and with Your Higher Self!

 

Controlling thoughts, desires, attractions, temptations

Fantasies & MIND PICTURES… is the key to achieving your goals.
