Vicky Anderson ~ Around the turn of the 20th century, a spiritual movement called the New Thought philosophy developed as the result of Orthodox Christianity, Unitarian Sensation-alism and Transcendentalism. This philo-sophy promotes the Law of Mind in emphasis of the fact that Divinity dwells within each of us. One of the early ‘thinkers’ of this philosophy was William W. Atkinson who, in 1906, wrote a book titled Thought Vibration: or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World. The premise behind his teachings is that what we focus on develops into our reality.[i]
The spiritual key to the Bible is the knowledge that the entire outer world… is amenable to the energy of our Thoughts. Emmet Fox
Dr. Joshua David Stone, Ph.D, was a late-twentieth century Jewish Psychologist and the author of numerous works on Spiritual Psychology and Integrated Ascension, a term he coined to stress the importance of mastering and integrating the mind and emotions with the spiritual path. In his book, titled The Universal Laws of God, he wrote about how we are all electro-magnetic beings. So our sub-conscious mind is always attracting and magnetizing vibrational frequencies. Like everything else in the Universe, thought waves have their own unique frequency. And, once a thought is accepted into the conscious mind, it imprints itself on the sub-conscious like a computer, which then attracts and magnetizes it. Our thoughts are frequencies to which other similar frequencies are constantly resonating. And it is our aura that acts as an antenna to attract them. So we are unconsciously broadcasting frequencies that are picking up similar frequencies from everyone and everything around us. We are literally attracting vibrational frequencies back to ourselves like a magnet. This resonance is the basis for a universal law – the Law of Attraction.[ii] Continue reading →
“Those who believe they can manifest all their desires through positive thinking and believing in the outcome don’t seem to be aware that the more you chase after your cravings, the more you tighten the net of your own enslavement, when you could be using life to break free of these limitations.” M Butler
The law of attraction is a wildly-popular modern mystical belief hyped as the secret to fulfilling your every desire. It has big celebrity endorsements, and commercial products rehashing its claims sell in abundance. But beneath the glossy facade there’s often an agenda pushing egocentrism and greed in metaphysical garb, which limits consciousness and subverts spirituality for shallow materialistic ends.
Many spiritual traditions have arisen throughout history and although they have their differences, a common recurring principle is that greed and spirituality don’t mix. Renowned spiritual teachers like Jesus or Buddha did not promote greed in their teachings or lifestyle – quite the opposite: they showed that greed and egocentrism had to be overcome.
Greed has been seen in many spiritual traditions as an obstacle or trap that prevents us from understanding and fulfilling a higher purpose to life. Because it makes us selfish and obsessed with transient things, it has long been taught that renouncing selfish desires, and selflessly helping others to do the same, is necessary to attain salvation or liberation.
But this principle is increasingly turned on its head in the world of commercial spirituality. Some want to have it both ways – a spiritual or metaphysical pursuit in their lives and all their material desires fulfilled – and those selling this message (and the corporations behind them) can make a lot of money out of pushing this false promise. But at what price?

It’s good to know that you already have exactly what it takes to manifest whatever heart desires in your life. There truly is nothing that you cannot do, create, be or have. By simply visualizing, feeling and knowing your life’s greatest dream is about to manifest for you, you can learn how to receive everything you’ve been looking for. Get ready to learn how to start taking massive action and see miraculous things manifest in your life!
Yes! Today is your day to get off the sidelines and jump onto the playing field of your dreams! You are about to learn how to create an amazing life that you love and make all your goals a living reality!! Are you excited? Well, simply follow these 5 actions below and you’ll begin attracting unstoppable success into your life this week…enjoy!
1. Choose ONE thing to manifest and be super specific about what it is.
If you have too many desires eating at you, they will leak your energy and disable you from creating any one of them. It’s best to focus on one specific thing at a time that is the most important thing you want and need. If you want a new job, what kind of job is it? Get specific with yourself about how many hours a week, what you’ll be doing, with what type of people, and how much will you be paid? If you also want a new relationship, body, money, peace of mind, and more fun in bed too, you’ll have a much easier time creating all of these dreams when you take care of your priority first. So just start with that one most important outcome that you most want/need to create, and commit to sticking to it like super glue over the next 90 days.
“Success doesn’t come to you … you go to it.” ~Marva Collins
Setting an intention is something we all have done in the past and naturally have the ability to do, and most of us haven’t learned exactly how to control it….yet! Today we are going to go into the specifics about how YOU can manifest WHATEVER you want in your life through this amazing power of intention that you already have! Start right now by noticing where these images about your life are coming from. If you look deep enough, you’ll see that something in you is constantly directing your attention towards what you want, and thus consistently attracting it into your life. Whether it’s that same constant argument with your best friend about religion, the feeling that you really do deserve a better job, or perhaps that dream car, house or bank account you wish you had, your mind is always focusing on something!
Whatever you place your thoughts upon is where the manifesting energy flows, which incidentally create the exact situations and circumstance of your future. When you come to know what you really really WANT to have in your life, you simply relax your body and focus your entire life energy into that direction with the FEELING your deepest desires is about to be fulfilled! Your mind will just go there automatically when the feeling is ripe and alive. Which brings us to the first golden key to manifesting; learning how to set a positive intention.
“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living. Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.” ~Gail Sheehy
If you’re like 90% of the population, you have a tendency to blame some friend that seems “have it out” for you. It feels like they’re deliberately trying to hold you back, or at the very least, trying to sabotage your success. So you sit there feeling angry, frustrated, deflated or maybe even slightly depressed.
You’re probably talking about how nothing ever goes right. You’re probably hanging out with other people who are constantly talking about it too and I would be willing to be that you’re probably even talking about it on Facebook and Twitter!
And as you continue to talk about and focus on all the bad stuff that’s happening, you’re attracting the people that are also talking about it!
Now you’re probably thinking that if you could just get rid of this friend, your life would be so much better – right? But even if you were able to move far, FAR away from this friend, let’s say to another part of the world, another one will take her place almost immediately.
Why? Because the Law of Attraction states “That which is alike unto itself is drawn”. In other words, you will keep attracting people that are a vibrational match to you.
There are a lot of bids out there, more or less new age, more or less sober that sort of bends the law of attraction into a washed out cliché of a non-working law.
In order to attract or manifest what we want in this life, I think a very good strategy is: Knowing what we really want in order to manifest it.
Some folks say: We may not get what we want but what we need, in order to dodge a very clear principle:
We are the source code to this.
What you want, you have to design, and you have got to tell the universe, or the universe can’t manifest for you. I very much subscribe to the idea that the Universe will provide, but: With no action there will be no Reaction.
If you are not clear about what you need, and a lot of people are not at the present or too locked in, the universe will go: “ Ahh, you like to be confused or miserable” it will support that. And that’s both gift and a bugger.
If the state is: “I am on the move and I have a clear vision of where I’m heading and what I need” the Universe will enforce that.
That should be a very good argument to dodge the: “The Universe will provide and I really don’t have to do nothing. I´ll just wait”, – new age cliché.
A better strategy could be: “I will make a move forward which is in line with the blueprint of what I would like to manifest and then I will focus on the big picture and leave the details to the Universe”.
I actually see these mechanics at work with the people I engage with and I am more and more convinced that: If there’s no action – there will be no reaction.
Gregg Braden talks about the role of the human heart in the Law of Attraction’s manifestation process. Thoughts that are believed at true or possible become beliefs and the vibration of the beliefs is sent out by the heart in the form of an electromagnetic frequency which affects the atoms around us.
The Universe wants you to be financially abundant and is always supporting you in making this a reality. So it really doesn’t matter what the economy is doing, or how long you’ve been struggling financially, it’s more about the vibration you’re sending out into the world today! Financial abundance is your birthright! It’s time for you to claim your abundant nature and start manifesting the financial abundance you truly deserve. Here are 5 easy steps that will support you in manifesting much abundance into your life:
1. Fully Acknowledge, Accept, and Embrace Your Abundant Nature.
The secret to feeling your abundant nature is to open your heart, and fully embrace the abundance that has already blessed your life. Let your armor melt away. Remove any shielding around your heart and imagine throwing it into a big fire. Breathe deeply and physically open your arms wide, inviting this abundant Universe into your heart. With each in-breath, imagine that EVERYTHING in the entire Universe is pouring into your heart; all the stars, planets, Earth, and all its people. Feel how truly abundant life already is. Let your heart welcome it all!
“It is not only my right and my privilege to walk in the abundance God has for me, it is my responsibility…just as it is my responsibility to live the rest of my truth.” ~ Jan Denise
2. Welcome with Gratitude the Abundance that is all Around You.
You do not have free will. I’m sorry if I’m the first to break that to you.
What you have is total freedom to choose how you will follow the laws of the universe. If you try to change or break or ignore the laws you will struggle and suffer. That’s not a threat. It isn’t divine retribution.
Let’s look at it another way.
You can cook toast in your toaster. But should you decide to boil water in your toaster, or worse, that you are going to try to keep the electricity coming down the cables at bay with your fingers, I assure you, you’re going to suffer. The electricity isn’t vengeful. It’s just electricity. You just don’t have that kind of power or free will. But you do have the resourcefulness to invent a better kind of toaster if you want to.
See what I mean?
Now, that’s electricity, but what about the law of attraction? The one that says, “Ask and it is given”?
