Jon Rappoport ~ Why The Law Of Attraction Fails

Jon Rappoport  April 3 2014

LawOfAttractionThe law is stated in two ways.

First, positive thoughts attract positive results in life, and negative thoughts attract negative results. This is mainly a descriptive overview. It doesn’t apply to people who consciously do something to change their own thoughts. It’s a “philosophic” basis for understanding why people get what they get in life.

Therefore, one assumes, if a hundred thousand people are dying of thirst during a drought, they brought that on by thinking a whole lot of negative thoughts.

People who advocate the law of attraction tend to dislike such examples. They sometimes hedge their bets by asserting that external events (e.g., a drought) are quite real and they never claimed otherwise.

This produces a blurry line between events that “just happen” independent of what people are thinking, and events which are the result of negative or positive thoughts.

The second version of the law emphasizes that people, by changing the nature of their own thoughts, automatically affect what they get in life.

Certainly, this isn’t achieved by a person entering his own mind like a surgeon with a scalpel, pruning away the negative . The interior landscape is far too large, the flows of thought are too mercurial, and quite often, what seems like a successful surgery later turns out to be a dud: the old excised thoughts return.

A frontal attack on thought is like trying to wipe out air.

But there are meditations and repetitive affirmations. Many advocates of the law recommend them. Focus on thinking about what you truly want. Clarify such thoughts. Repeat them to yourself over and over. Affirm them. Or concentrate on an object of desire.

Doing this in a dispassionate way hardly calls up very much energy. It’s about as effective as trying to move forward in an active ocean while sitting in a paper boat and paddling with a soup spoon.

Soren Dreier ~ The Hidden Fuel Of Intention

SorenDreier  February 14 2014

ManMeditatingHope’ and ‘Belief’ can be very tricky concepts to frame right.

They can be very low frequency or they can be very high frequency. It all comes down to the consciousness that inhabits them.

If they are low frequency they are an extension of the Matrix or the control system. If they are high frequency they are the last thing you want to dodge.

Throughout history, the Matrix has used hope and belief to keep people at dock. “I´m sweating my back off and I´m starving, but religion ensures me a much better place after I´m done here.” That’s hope and belief stigmatizing the consciousness into obedience.

Throughout the evolution of consciousness the mundane chains have been vanishing, and we now need to take the powerful tools of Hope and Belief into a more conscious framework; the framework of conscious awareness.

Recently I have written about consciousness awareness, so let’s look at that since hope and belief are well integrated in that state of mind.

David Neagle ~ Faith Based On Understanding Is The Key To Freedom

InspireMeToday  August 31 2013

I just had a great conversation with a friend who was telling me about some business associates who have had a complete turn around on their dream. A few months ago, they were enthusiastic and on fire for their future. Unfortunately, they didn’t keep their mental doors locked… and something negative slipped in, and they dropped the pursuit of their dream.

All failure begins this way.

People may have high hopes, but when their perceived circumstances suggest a lesser outcome is more likely (perhaps via an unexpected obstacle), this perceived discrepancy becomes the initial seed of failure.

Being unaware of how this process destroys the dreams of countless people, they fall victim to its seduction.

John Smallman ~ You Are On Schedule For Lives Of Joy And Abundance

Jesus Through John  August 25 2013

Humanity has caught the “ascension wave” and is riding it beautifully!  It really is as though you had been standing in the surf, waiting for that special wave – that electrifyingly large one.  Then it arrived.  You caught it brilliantly, and now you are flying with it towards your most breathtaking and enthralling destination – surfer heaven, your awakening into Reality!

It does seem to many of you, to put it rather graphically, that “all hell is breaking loose” in many places across the planet.  Do not be alarmed.  The old order is merely in the process of disintegrating and pieces are flying every which way, as in an explosion.  When the dust and debris settle, a gentle peace and an uplifting calm, the one for which so many have been hoping and praying, will prevail.

You are on course and on schedule for lives of joy and abundance, totally free from fear and worry as the disintegration of the old order makes way for the new order based most firmly on the Golden Rule (always treat others with the love and respect with which you would wish to be treated) which all will honor in every situation.  The time for lying, manipulating, cheating, deceiving, and betrayal is ending, permanently.

John Smallman ~ What You May Experience In Yourselves Or Others As Less Than Perfect Is Illusory

Jesus Through John  August 16 2013

Humans have an interesting but most unfortunate and hurtful habit of attaching themselves rather inflexibly to their beliefs – the beliefs with which they identify and which they use to define themselves, mostly as good and honorable – and then to regulations based on those beliefs, whereupon they set out to impose them on others who have a different and “wrong” set of beliefs.

Each group attempts to disparage and destroy the beliefs of the others, first by means of “reason,” rhetoric and persuasion, and when that fails, as it inevitably does, the decision is frequently made to use force, but always most righteously and sanctimoniously!

You have been doing this for eons, but now, finally, many are aware or are becoming aware that this form of problem resolution just does not work – in fact, it is really not intended to work, just to produce a winner, my side – and that no one has all the right on their side.  You are realizing that you are humans of limited wisdom and intelligence, and for peace to prevail you have to respect all others, communicate openly and honestly together, and then cooperate, not “for the greater good,” but for the good of all.  That is Love in action.

Presently, in the Arab world, this is being demonstrated most brutally, and many who would have previously been unaware, let alone interested in conflicts taking place so far from their own backyards are now seeing that the only way forwards to lasting peace in the world is by honoring one another, not by judging and condemning one another’s beliefs and opinions.

With so much violence erupting across the world as people’s unresolved, denied, and hidden issues burst into the forefront of their consciousness, and as they project them on to others in fear and loathing, it is even more essential for you, the Light-bearers and wayshowers, to engage fully in your ongoing spiritual task.  You chose to incarnate to do this, to assist those who were most deeply asleep – the ones you now see behaving so violently – and now is the time to intensify your efforts.

John Smallman ~ Your Guilt-Ridden Beliefs Never Made Any Sense, But You Chose To Believe In Them Anyhow

John Smallman’s blog June 19 2013

Humanity’s forthcoming awakening can be likened to an enormous wave cresting and breaking – a tremendous power (the ocean of Love) peaking and then spreading out in all directions encompassing all, and leaving no one feeling unloved, unaffected, or unchanged.  It will be a moment of unimaginable exhilaration as awareness dawns, through the directly felt experience, of being infinitely and eternally loved by God, our Father, and of the impossibility of being anything less than a perfect child of God, an essential and inseparable part or aspect of God in Whom the whole of creation has its eternal existence.  All sense of a separate form of individuality that is not one with God will be gone, and all the fear, the anxiety, and any sense of not being good enough or deserving enough will also be gone as you fully grasp and see, seemingly for the very first time, the wonder and the magnificence of the being that God created as You!

Let go of your fears and allow Love to fill you to overflowing.  It surrounds you in every moment just waiting for you to accept It and invite It in.  You are not, and never can be, alone, lost, or abandoned because you exist permanently within the field of God’s unfailing and eternal Love.  Within the illusion it is extremely difficult for you to maintain your belief in that unalterable truth for more than a moment or two at a time before all your doubts and fears come rolling in, wrapped in a cloak of skepticism as you once more begin to doubt the existence of God.  You have done a very good job of hiding Reality from your view, and you have great difficulty in acknowledging and believing in what you cannot see. That is all to change because the power of God’s Love for you is insisting that you open your eyes to the brilliant Light in which It is bathing you, and thus awaken.  You will be unable to resist Its loving calls to you for very much longer because It is everything that your hearts desire.

The Wilde Weekly ~ Understanding the Nature of Beliefs

Zen-Haven June 13 2013

By reviewing beliefs and feelings, you begin to understand how to use the Universal Law effectively. It is natural to yearn for the impossible and, in so doing, you establish strong beliefs about what can be done and what cannot.

You can jump a certain height and no higher, run at a certain speed and no faster, accept a certain position and no better.

Because most commercial aircraft fly at about 600 miles an hour, the shortest time in which you can get from New York to Paris is about six hours. Those are facts in the collective unconscious. But what if we told you of a man who could move his body many thousands of miles in just a few seconds?

Your mind would scan its memory banks and draw a blank, whereupon you might think, impossible. Then perhaps you might review all the scientific data available and conclude that this feat is unachievable.

All scientific knowledge and current thinking are products of the same collective unconscious, and just the fact that a billion people have no concept of a man moving three thousand miles in a few seconds makes it impossible. But the billions of people are wrong.

There is a dimension, right here on the earth plane, in which such a feat is possible, and there are a few people alive today who know of this dimension and use it. It is a matter of perception and belief.

Your ability to work miracles is predicated entirely on how easily and quickly you can give the collective unconscious the slip. It is your attachment to the collective unconscious, or world belief patterns, that holds you back.

Ricky Roberts III ~ Never Stop Believing In The Greatness Of Who You Are

Inspire Me Today June 6 2013

This moment, right now, is all that you can truly know. Regardless of what you may have done in your past, or the fears that you may have of the future, give thanks that you are here now.

You are beautiful and deserve to know the gift that you are to the world. Honor the mistakes you have made, for everyone makes them, but seek the lessons that they may have to teach you.

There is only one you. No matter how many people you compare yourself to, or how much you try to please others, no one can ever be who you are, as you can never be who they are. Honor the path that you have traveled, be proud of who you are in this moment, and give thanks for the opportunity to have another day.

Life will not be easy, you will be hurt, you will lose loved ones, your finances, relationships, jobs, living arrangements, and physical appearance will all change. No matter what may occur in your life, good or bad, know that it is a part of the greater good in why you are here.

We are all created in our own perfection, just as we are. We are not the same, and will never be. My truth is not yours as yours is not mine. Stand firm in your convictions but respect the convictions of others. Learn to appreciate the difference of others, and value what they may have to teach you about yourself.

Harry Olson ~ Your Power Flows From Your Purpose

Inspire Me Today May 22 2013

I used to think that love was the greatest force on earth.

Lately, however, I have come to recognize that the greatest human force is something else, something deeper, something even more fundamental.

I’m talking about the power of expectation. It can move mountains, save life, and when used negatively, destroy life.

How do expectations have such power?

The answer lies with your subconscious mind. Your subconscious controls your automatic actions and physiological responses, habits, creativity, and even your perception. That’s right. It controls what “vibes” and other cues in your environment that you will see or not see. We all have had the experience of not seeing something that was in plain sight because we didn’t want to see it or were thinking about something else.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, however. The subconscious is much more proactive. It “goes for” this and it “goes for” that, creating self-fulfilling prophecy. Behind the scenes, outside your conscious awareness, it works little by little to create into reality what you down-deep expect or believe. In other words, it slyly helps you turn fiction into fact.

The end result: if you believe or expect a certain outcome, you will find yourself acting in subtle ways that help set up the very thing you expect, for good or for ill. And you won’t even know you’re doing it!
