Before Abraham Wrote About The Law Of Attraction, Seth Told Us That We Create Our Own Reality!

Many people today read the Abraham books, channeled by Esther Hicks. These books present a very concise and inspiring look at the Law of Attraction, which Abraham calls the most powerful law in the universe. The Abraham books, however, acknowledge that this message is not new, though they are, arguably, bringing it to more people than ever before.

In the introduction to Abraham’s book, The Law of Attraction, Esther’s husband and co-author, Jerry, speaks of having read Seth before Esther began channeling. Seth is credited with coining the famous new age phrase, “You Create Your Own Reality.”

While that phrase became a popular one and is easy to say, much of the material in the Seth books is actually quite complicated, especially compared to the breezy, conversational style of the Abraham books. The best known Seth books are Seth Speaks and The Nature of Personal Reality, but Jane Roberts put out at least a half dozen others. These are meticulously transcribed by Jane’s husband Rob (it seems channelers require a supportive spouse!), with dates and times of every statement put down in the books.

The very exhaustive nature of the Seth books, along with the fact that the Roberts’ never traveled around the world giving seminars -they actually never moved from their home in Central New York- seems to make it highly unlikely that there was any financial motive for the work. This was before the new age movement was sparked in the 1980s, largely by Shirley Maclaine. This is not to criticize those who do give seminars, such as the Hicks’, but only to say that the simple lifestyle of the Roberts’ (Jane died several years ago) seems to support their sincerity.

The Seth material is, frankly, too detailed and dense to be very popular. Even I, who devoured it for a few years, have come to prefer the direct and simple style of Abraham. Yet you have to credit Seth with putting out some extremely interesting information (or theories if you prefer). This mainly revolves around reincarnation, probably selves and, naturally, reality creation.

According to Seth, all of our lives are happening at once, since time as we understand it is only a mental construct. In addition to this, we have many “probable selves” living out “probable realities” in alternate dimensions. This means that each of us has infinite possibilities that are all being lived out in some world or another. Some academic philosophers, approaching the issue from a very different point of view, have come up with a similar theory, called possible worlds.

Another powerful phrase that Seth came up with is, “The Present is the Point of Power.” Again, simple enough, but it means something quite important. The present is the only “time” that is real, so it’s the only place where we have any real power. So the point of the Seth material is not to remember your past lives (which were not in the past anyway!) but to realize your own power in the present, where all of your various selves can be accessed and united.

The Seth books, especially The Nature of Personal Power is an excellent addition to any self-improvement or law of attraction library. It is especially good for people who like detailed and scientific explanations for everything, as opposed to just being told how things are. The latter will probably prefer the Abraham books. If you are somewhere in the middle, as I am, you may like both. Seth also gives a very comprehensive explanation of how reincarnation works, for those interested in that.

Law of Attraction For Weight Loss – Your Secret to Dropping Unwanted Weight Once and For All!

Ever notice how your best friend can lose weight on the same diet that you don’t? Or how you often reach “plateaus”? The yo-yo dieting trend among frustrated women in this country is practically an epidemic!

Want to know the secret of why this happens? And how you can lose unwanted weight once and for all? Of course you do – we all do!

Sounds too good to be true, I know. But once you understand this concept, you’ll never again wonder why you’re not getting results on the latest diet or with your new gym membership. In fact, this secret will let you in on weight loss without breaking a sweat or refusing another Krispie Kreme.

This “secret” principle has been around for eons, but is being rediscovered across the country. People in the know are successfully putting it to work to achieve weight loss that’s easily maintained! If you want to join those ranks, follow along closely.

Drum roll, now, for the secret weapon against unwanted weight: The Law of Attraction!

What is it? Simply put, the Law of Attraction is a powerful universal law that says “like attracts like.” This force is at work in our lives every moment, although most are oblivious to it. Using the power of this law will allow you to create the body you want, without requiring unending weeks of blood, sweat and tears. (It also explains why we get such inconsistent results on the same programs!)

Here’s how it works. Without getting too technical (although quantum physics is happy to explain), know that everything in the universe is made up of energy. Including your thoughts and feelings. And that like attracts like. This means your thoughts and feelings are energy that attract similar energy.

So basically, as you think, so you attract. You’ve heard phrases that intuitively reflect this understanding: “you reap what you sow,” ” birds of a feather flock together,” etc.

What does this have to do with weight loss? Everything, my friend. This law is actually responsible for your original weight gain and everything else in your life, believe it or not. It’s time to understand this principle in order to get what you want, instead of what you don’t want!

Here’s a quick example to give you a feel for how it works. At 5’9″ and 135 pounds for most of my life, I considered myself naturally lean. Although my European aunts regularly told me “my day would come,” I thought I would be thin for life.

When I joined the corporate world, however, things did change. I noticed women in the office bonding over weight issues. They advised each other on fat grams in each other’s lunches, they swapped low fat recipes, shopped together for outfits that smartly concealed extra pounds, and shared exercise tips.

As a naturally lean person who could eat whatever she wanted (and did so regularly), I was soon on the outs with this crowd. All I wanted to do was fit in, so I quickly followed suit and joined their misery. I began complaining about sneaky extra pounds, and appearing cellulite. I swore off fat-packed foods and joined them in break time snacks of carrots and celery sticks.

At first it was an act. I was thin and I knew it; I just wanted to fit in.

Strangely enough, though, I began to notice that clothes were getting tighter, and thighs getting jigglier. My complaints became much more authentic and alarming as time went on. Soon enough, I was carrying the extra pounds that every woman in the office complained of.

This was the law of attraction in action! My thoughts attracted circumstances that matched. Because I talked about being overweight, acted overweight, and commiserated with overweight women, I soon enough found myself overweight. At the time, I just assumed my wise old aunts were right. My time had indeed come.

Several years later after unsuccessful diets and exercise programs, I discovered the Law of Attraction. I then understood that my thoughts and actions created my problem and that new thoughts and actions could create the thin thighs and flat stomach I deserved.

So I began thinking thin, and doing things I thought a lean person would do. I talked to myself and supportive friends like a perfect-weight person would (required imagination, I assure you). And I gradually curbed habits of critiquing my body and feeling hopeless about changing it.

And lo and behold — in less time than you would believe — there were my thin thighs and flat stomach waiting for me. Law of Attraction, folks. It’s magic!

Now I will say the Law of Attraction works in accordance with your beliefs. (Beliefs being nothing more than oft-repeated thoughts.) So if you believe it takes blood, sweat and tears to drop weight – then that’s what you’ll have to experience unless you change those beliefs.

On the other hand, if you can realign your beliefs for an easier experience, you can skip the baloney we’re regularly fed about good fat/bad fat, red light/green light carbs, required aerobic & weight sessions, etc. There are plenty of women out there, though, who would happily suffer through those rules if it would just get them where they want to be!

If only they knew the key isn’t food or exercise; it’s thoughts and feelings. It’s the energy that creates the reality. Tell your body what to expect, through aligned thoughts and feelings, and let it happen. It will soon be your reality, regardless of what your European aunts and overweight colleagues say!

Self Talk and the Law of Attraction

Do you talk to yourself? It would be quite unusual if you didn’t. We are usually talking to ourselves all of the time. Not usually out loud, and not always in complete sentences, but nonetheless we are always thinking, imagining, hoping, worrying and so forth. Much of the time, these states are accompanied by words, as in “I hope ___ doesn’t happen,” or “I wonder if ___ will happen later.” Self talk is something so common we are usually even aware of it.

For something we are barely conscious of, self talk is extremely important and powerful. If you are interested in the Law of Attraction, you may be familiar with the technique of using affirmations, as in, “I am now fulfilled and abundant in all areas of my life.” Well, the fact is, people are all affirming most of the time, only in many cases they are using negative affirmations! Every time we say something angry, fearful, resentful, envious, sad or bitter, we are putting out negative affirmations that the universe responds to. The good news is that by paying attention to our self talk, we can change it and also change the circumstances in our life quite quickly.

The key is to start paying attention to what you say to yourself. Your self talk tends to be habitual, so at first you may have to work to be aware of it. It is not, however, unconscious, so you don’t need to be hypnotized to access it! When you say words to yourself, you are using the conscious part of your mind, so all it takes to be aware of it is making the effort to pay attention.

When you start paying attention to how you talk to yourself, look for patterns. Be especially aware of words such as “always,” “nothing,” “everyone,” “no one” and “why.” These are not necessarily bad, but they usually fall into the category of generalizations, as in, “Why do things like this always happen to me?” Or, “Why don’t my children ever listen to me?” If you examine these statements you will see that they are not really true. You may take one experience and generalize it into “always” or “never.” It can help to write such statements down and then analyze them. Then write down a more well thought out response, such as, “this kind of thing doesn’t always happen to me; in fact it only happens rarely.”

You can turn negative self talk, which, again are really negative affirmations and turn them into bona fide, positive affirmations. One powerful way to do this is to make an effort to pay attention to positive experiences and turn them into generalizations. While these may not be, strictly speaking, any truer than the negative ones, you are trying to create more of them in your life, so you can trick your mind into believing it. This can be done with questions as well. Ask, for example, “Why are people so nice to me?” or “How do I always manage to have such good timing?”

You can play with positive self talk and affirmations, but the important thing is to pay attention to what you habitually say to yourself now. If you find many negative statements and questions, do not despair. Just shining the light of awareness on them can do a lot to turn it around. Remember, these are only words. Well, words are actually very powerful, but the fact is we do have conscious control over them, even in our own minds (though it may take some practice to really understand this).

So we always have the ability to turn negative self talk into positive. And positive words are more powerful than negative, because they are more closely aligned with our true nature (or Higher Self). So a healthy dose of positive self talk can dispel a large amount of negative. So start listening to yourself!

Attract Your Ex Back With the Law of Attraction – A Violation of Free Will?

Why Many Say Its Impossible:

Is it possible to use the law of attraction to attract your ex back without unknowingly misapplying it to work against you? How does one use the law of attraction to attract their ex back without violating the notion of free will? Many state it’s not possible to do so without turning the law of attraction against you to bring about more “don’t-wants”. After all, the law of attraction tells us it’s the thoughts we focus upon with emotion that we create our lives with. This notion of free will is an essential implication of the law of attraction since we are able to freely choose the thoughts we hold to attract that which best coincides with it.

In the heat of emotion, with the drama and turmoil in your relationship, it’s hard to see beyond the problem to an effective solution to attracting your ex back. Where does one begin? It’s easy to become frustrated as impatience builds. You can’t help but ask yourself: “Why isn’t the law of attraction working in my life as I’ve envisioned it? Why haven’t I attracted my ex back yet? What am I not getting?”

Before you read further, let me reassure you – contrary to the many naysayers out there – it is possible to attract your ex back with the law of attraction. The key is knowing how to properly apply it…

Attract Your Ex Back with the Law of Attraction – A Fatal Misunderstanding:

Among those who are trying to attract their ex back, I see many common misunderstandings of the law of attraction as they pertain to relationships. Since your ex’s departure I’m sure it’s hard to see beyond the pain of their absence. This is the overwhelming issue at hand right now. The immediate remedy you seek is to figure out what can be done to attract your ex back. Before we go further, allow me to inform you it’s these emotions that are blinding you from understanding the true problem to begin realizing an effective solution.

So having said this, what is standing in the way of your attempts to attract your ex back with the law of attraction? It’s your misunderstanding of the problems and an inability to see the solution.

Attract Ex Back with the Law of Attraction – Respect Your Partners Right To Free Will and Discover The Answers Which Lie Within:

As you well know, the law of attraction states it’s the thought vibrations you send out into the world that are responsible for what you have in your life. To effectively attract your ex back with the law of attraction, you must begin changing your thought vibrations. Failing to accept yourself as the ultimate causal explanation for what you’ve attracted into your relationship completely flies in the face of the law of attraction.

You see, ultimately the only real problem isn’t what is going on in your relationship, but your perceptions and feelings about them. After all, this is what you’ve utilized to attract your ex’s departure right? The solution then, to begin attracting your ex back, is to changing those perceptions.

Just what sort of perceptions might you need to change? Well, for example, this might mean asking yourself if you’ve been using your relationship as a source of happiness and love since love and happiness flow from within not from without right? As the law of attraction reminds us: affect is within and cause is without. Are you going to continue burdening your partner with the job of making you feel happy and loved and hold them out of your life? Or, are you willing to discover yourself as complete and whole by yourself and attract them back to you? Is your partner’s departure the problem or is it your unrealistic evaluation of them as a source of love and happiness?

Attract Ex Back with the Law of Attraction – You Are Your Life’s Creator!

Effectively using the law of attraction to attract your ex back means focusing on yourself not them. This means letting go of your desire to avoid responsibility and seek to discover yourself as the ultimate causal explanation for your life. With an acceptance of responsibility, your role in the relationship is clear. The solutions you seek to utilize to attract your ex back are then not far behind. Let me reassure you, the work is worth it. Just beyond the emotions overwhelming you and the limiting beliefs standing in your way are the solutions you seek. They are available for those who are willing to grow tall enough to claim them. Therefore, your choices are this: Continue doing what isn’t working, accept what is, or make a commitment to change things.

How to Use the Law of Attraction in Dealing With Difficult People in 4 Easy Steps

For centuries, humans have been dealing with circumstances and problems, whether it be relationships, money and other stuff that has an effect in our lives. Sadly, almost 97% of the population deal with these problems externally. When I say externally, they try to change their situations and how other people treat them by trying to do something outside of themselves, but to no avail. Can you somehow relate to what I am saying? Best example is when you see something that you don’t like about a person, such as an attitude or a habit. You then try to tell them about it and ask them to change. Eventually, you will notice that as you focus on their problem, they tend to get worse and more problems and headaches occur?

This issue has been a mystery for me for many decades. Just to give you an idea, I have read and listened to so many self help, religious, and even “new thought” books and audio books. Not to mention joining organizations and religious groups. I have struggled and failed almost my entire life. These things seem to be good, based on what the norm and culture told us. I’ve read about people getting good results on those helpful tools and groups that I mentioned, but the fact is it did not work for me.

You might be doing okay with some areas of your life, but some part is really pulling your momentum down which is outrageous. And the most common problem for most people is dealing with relationships. It can be your spouse, relative, friend, neighbor, or a bum on the corner of the street. Still, their words and actions will always have a mental or emotional impact to you that you would wish to change.

Recently, I finally found a REAL solution to this problem that haunted me for so many years. And now I am going to share this to you. First let me tell you something very important. Most of us might know this but have been ignoring the power of it. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO ANYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW! Yes, you read it right. You might say “what the hell are you talking about Paul? Are you serious? Are you implying that I’ve caused those people to hurt me, when it is clearly their fault and I have done nothing wrong to them?” Well, my answer is a resounding YES!

I believe you must have heard about the so called “Law of Attraction.” If you haven’t, I believe you can check out Rhonda Byrne’s “The Secret”, Joe Vitale’s “The Attractor Factor, Or Wallace Wattles’ “The Science of Getting Rich.” It gives you an overview about this law. It is as real as any other laws of nature such as the Law of Gravity, Law of Cause and Effect, and others. Law of Attraction is mostly defined as “like attracts like”. Whatever is going on in your mind, accompanied with a feeling, you will attract since it directly gives the command to your subconscious, which in turn manifest your thoughts to reality. Therefore, your current situation is only the result of your past thoughts and actions. This has been scientifically proven by quantum physicist so do not get me wrong. I have proven it personally. I have experienced it and that is why I am confident on sharing this with you. I am not going to further elaborate on it, if you want to know more about the law of attraction, you can just Google it or check out the book that I have mentioned above. But for now I will assume that you are already well informed about the said law since it has been very popular recently.

Now let’s go back to the topic of this article. How did I solve my problem in dealing with difficult people? Can you really change them without telling them to do so? Once I have learned that we have this God-like power. I immediately put it into practice. Let me share you the basic steps which have been very effective for me. I have used the power of imagining. I learned these steps from the teachings of Neville Goddard. This is very powerful on using the law of attraction.

Here are the steps:

1. Sit down on a comfortable chair or lie down on your bed. Relax you mind and body and let go of any negative thoughts or worries.

2. Relax until you feel like your drowsiness is causing you to not want you to move any part of your body. Once you are on that state, it means that your power of imagination or subconscious is already open to suggestion.

3. Start thinking of the person you wish to change. Picture them as treating you the way you want them to. Treat them with loving thoughts and words on your current half asleep state. It does not need to take very long to imagine. A few minutes will do. Once you feel it as real like you have touched their hand or heard them talking to you. It should be enough.

4. Wake up and go back to your normal routine and believe that your wish is granted. You will be surprised on how powerful these steps are. Believe me.

It is important to know that the change happens internally. Once your subconscious received it through your imagination, the universe will start adjusting everything around you to grant your request. If you have doubts if what i am telling you is true, then try those steps and you be the judge.

Note that this is more powerful when you practice it before going to sleep at night. It is even more effective when you fall asleep while thinking of this loving imagination because the powerful subconscious is mostly at its peak when you are sleeping.

This process can also be applied on other areas of your life such as financial, job, and other stuffs.

I’d love to read about your results if these steps worked for you.

How to Manifest Faster With Law of Attraction – Real Life Tips You Can Use

If you are using law of attraction to manifest something you would like in your life and wonder if there is a way to make that process happen faster here are a few tips you can use to make things manifest faster in your life.

So you have picked out your desire or goal that you would like to happen. You have been using visualization, affirmations and practicing gratitude in your life, but you are still waiting for your desire to appear. Where is it? Why is it taking so long?

If you want your manifestation to appear faster you have to detach from it. Of course you still want your desire to appear in your life but you can not be stressed or worried about it, this will only defeat everything you’re trying to do. Manifest faster with law of attraction

When you come from that frame of mind you are actually attracting exactly what you don’t want, you’re pushing your desire away from you even further. What you are actually doing is attracting the lack of your desire because that’s really what you are thinking and feeling deep down.

When you worry about a desire and why it is not coming you are thinking of the lack of it and that’s what you’re going to attract more of. You need to think about what you’re thinking about.

Sometimes I will tell people you need to completely detach from your goal. When you detach and let go you are no longer worrying about achieving your desire or goal and then, coming from that frame of mind, it will appear.

Think about the last time you needed a job really bad. You worried about it, stressed about it because money was not coming in and so on. You visualized and used law of attraction to get a job and eventually you did. What happened next? I can almost guarantee you had a flood of offers come in, all at the same time.

Why did that happen? It is because you let go and released your goal or desire and were no longer worrying about it. You detached from it. The universe still knew you wanted it and was now ready to deliver it to you because NOW you were in the perfect frame of mind… feeling like your “already had” what you wanted… because you actually did… therefore the flood of offers poured in.

This is why you need to FEEL, THINK and ACT like you ALREADY have something in order for it to come into your life. Law of attraction works very fast and efficiently if you can get into this frame of mind.

I’ve seen the same thing happened many times in other situations when people let go. Let’s take for example you are single and looking for someone you can date. You go on all these online dating sites write your profile, go on many dates but still nothing is working out.

You eventually meet someone that is a perfect match for you and soon after that you meet three other people that you would like to date at the same time. Feast or famine, isn’t that the way it always works out? It’s because you are no longer attached to your desire and are coming from a better frame of mind in other words you are aligning with your desire and now the universe can deliver, and boy does it deliver sometimes.Tips to speed up manifesting with law of attraction

Some of you are worried about getting an ex back in your life. You worry and get stressed about it, can’t sleep and miss them so bad you can even eat sometimes. What do you think this is going to bring you more of? You are basically showing the universe with law of attraction this is what you want.

It’s not what you want of course but this is the way the universe works. You get what you think about and feel about. This is the language of the universal mind and this is how law of attraction really works.

You think and worry about what you don’t want and that’s exactly what you’re going to get. Law of attraction and the universe knows no difference whether it is good or bad it just delivers what you are showing it.

I hope that helped explain how law of attraction works to some of you that are new to this. You must only think about things you want because this is what you are going to get.

Another way to speed up the process is to use meditation. Meditation is a simple process where you sit quietly and think of nothing, you completely shut off your mind and relax. While it is a simple process, it takes a little practice to shut your mind down. I will do another post on it shortly.

Meditation can speed up the process of law of attraction because you are no longer thinking or worrying about what you do not have, you just stop thinking for a while and give yourself a break. The universe knows what you want already and by meditating and shutting your mind off you can connect with a higher power. This is where inspiration and great ideas come from.

Another process you can use to speed up the process of law of attraction is to use subliminals. I recommend making your own, in your own voice, tailored exactly to your needs.

Subliminals will speed up the process of manifestation the same way meditation does by shutting off your thoughts, putting you into a very relaxed state where the subliminals can seep into your subconscious mind and change your beliefs, they are very powerful if used correctly.

Affirmations, mind meditation, visualizations, gratitude journals and all other methods of law of attraction basically have the same purpose and that is to change your deepest beliefs. That is why I always recommend using subliminals they can really speed up the process of manifesting your desires.

I’ am going to repeat something again and that is “think about what you’re thinking about” then ask yourself is this what time want? Because what you are thinking about is what’s going to appear in your life, like it or not.

The Law of Attraction Versus the Law of Reversibility

Lately, I’ve been pondering which of these two laws is more relevant in these times… The Law of Attraction or the Law of Reversibility?

In reality, they are not in opposition, but rather they work together in harmony.

Unless you’ve spent the past few years in total isolation, its very likely that you’ve heard something about the Law of Attraction (LOA).

The basic premise of the LOA, is that like attracts like. In other words, the circumstances you are experiencing in your life are as a direct result of your dominating thoughts, both conscious and unconscious. Therefore, the Law is at work at all time, regardless of your awareness of it or attention toward it.

In 2006, a cinematic release entitled “The Secret” helped to catapult the Law of Attraction into the mainstream. Many people that were newcomers to the concepts of the Law mistakenly interpreted the content to mean that all you needed to do in order to fulfill your desires was to “ask” for something, focus your attention on it, and **POOF**, you’d magically get it!

…Just make a wish!

And sadly, many people (maybe even you?) have discounted the validity of the Law because they’ve failed to achieve measurable results from their initial attempts at applying the concepts in their lives.

But it’s not your fault…

The problem is that you weren’t taught anything about the Law of Reversibility. And without a working knowledge of THIS Law, your results are likely to be marginal, at best.

Yet it’s likely that you’ve never even heard of The Law of Reversibility, right?

It’s somewhat difficult to describe, but when you officially “get it”, your life may never be the same!

First, you must understand that all transformations of force are reversible. (Heat is an example of a transformation of force, as is electricity, or controlled imagination, and so is cause-and-effect).

For example, if friction (a transformation of force) can produce electricity, then The Law of Reversibility dictates that electricity can produce friction. Is this making sense to you?

To put it another way, if a physical fact can produce a psychological state, then IN REVERSE, a psychological state can produce a physical fact.

And why does this matter? Well…think of the implications…

If you knew exactly how you would feel if you were to realize your dream or objective, and could replicate that feeling mentally, physically, and psychologically (controlling your state of mind), then the Law of Reversibility would automatically cause your objective to be realized. Make sense?

Your job then, is to assume and sustain the exact feeling associated with your dream or goal being fulfilled, until such time that your dream objectifies itself. And in order to sustain that feeling, you must live, move, and BE in that state of belief…

The belief that you already ARE or HAVE that which you desire.

“Get it” yet?

Instead of just making a wish and concentrating on your desired outcome, I want you to assume the feeling of your dream fulfilled, and then continue to practice experiencing that feeling until that which you FEEL becomes your reality.

I’d love to hear how you are successfully using these Laws to accomplish your goals! Please visit my blog or send me an email!

Until next time, be creative!
