The Secret Law of Attraction
By John Perozzi
Well, it’s not really that much of a secret anymore. Many of the cast members of the movie “The Secret” have been on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Larry King Live,” and “Ellen.” But what is it really?
There are two ways to look at this. One is the way I first learned it and it goes something like this:
We have all heard about goal setting and how it is a great way to get what you want. To do this you have to become crystal clear about what you want, and the more why’s you can attach to your wants, the stronger your desire to accomplish them. This school of thought says that opportunities are all around you at any given time, and you simply don’t see them because you’re focused on getting the kids to school, doing your job well, balancing your checkbook, etc. In other words: every day life.
But have you ever had a headlight in your car go out? Did you notice how many other cars on the road also had a headlight out? This is a part of your brain called the reticular activating device and it helps you to focus on specific things. The truth is there are no more cars on the road with one light on than there were before, you’re simply noticing them.
Want another example? Have you ever decided to buy a certain car then notice them everywhere you went? Same thing.
So, by becoming very clear on the things we want and focusing our attention on them, we start to see things that were there the whole time but went unnoticed because our subconscious mind didn’t know to look for them. And all kinds of opportunities, resources, chance meetings, etc. start to happen for us that move us toward our goals.
This works. I’ve done it myself.
The other school of thought is the quantum physics angle. Don’t nod off on me. This is actually quite fascinating.
According to physicists the subatomic world exists as a wave of probabilities until they are observed (by us). The moment of observation they move from being a probability to becoming a “reality” (very loose word in the world of quantum physics). It’s like the old philosophical question of the tree falling in the woods. According to this field of science, not only does it not make a sound, it doesn’t even happen.
Okay, I went too far. Please stay with me.
All of these subatomic particles are really little packets of energy. That means that literally everything you see is made up of this same energy. And although you might not be able to see them it doesn’t mean they’re not there. Just as some animals can see infrared light, or hear sounds we can not, (both of these being examples of energy), there is other energy out there we are not aware of.
Again, by focusing our thoughts (energy) on what we desire we are literally sending a vibration out into the world. And what we are attracting back are things with the same vibrational frequency as our dominant thoughts. We are attracting everything into our lives, hence the name The Law of Attraction.
This works too. I’ve done it.
Which isn’t really surprising. Either way you choose to look at it it will work for you. All you have to do is become very clear about what you want, believe and expect that you will receive them (the more why’s, the better), and then get out of your own way and allow them into your life.
Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!
