Law of Attraction? Is it real? Vision Boards, focused energy, repeating mantras...

Because everyone on here is an astrology person, I was wondering if you guys believe in the Law of Attraction. Iíve read the Secret before, but I never really bought into it.

But I was reminded of it watching a YouTube video today, and it was inspiring. If youíre gonna dwell on something, and that you could possibly send a message out into the Universe, you may as well send out something you hope to have.

I remember that I made a Vision Board a while ago, and I actually achieved some of the stuff on it without even realizing it. They werenít the big things, but pretty awesome that I got them in such a short period of time.

The idea that someone can attract something by just thinking about it, or having it deep in the subconscious can eventually attract it is so weird.

Re: Law of Attraction? Is it real? Vision Boards, focused energy, repeating mantras.

Have you read my thread and then made this thread ? Why didn't you just add to my thread.

Please don't tell me we both made the same kind of thread at the same time

The Secret is actually a cheap (and incomplete) Abraham-Hicks copy. So I would suggest you go straight to the source. Abraham-Hicks is the real deal. Forget all the others.

Abraham Hicks believers are the type who say negativity is your fault and bad karma. As if any darkness is bad. Just Googled the birth chart and she is a Sun Pisces

Because negativity means that you dwell on what you fear, worry about bad things that could happen, or what you don't have.

While positivity means that you focus on what you love, strive to achieve that things that could happen, or what you do have or think you can have.

For example, poor people worry about the little money they could lose.
Rich people focus on the big money they could make.

Thatís one end of the spectrum. Too much positivity means you donít want to be negative so you dont listen to it and if someone else is negative then you tell them itís their fault.

Negativity is bound to happen, but you always wanna shift your focus to something positive. Which is something I need to work on.

Wherever you go in life, there's always something to be upset about or happy about. So you may as well pick the happy side.

Yeah and making a board is a good thing just sometimes people take the positivity thing too far and a lot of them love Abraham Hicks.

Re: Law of Attraction? Is it real? Vision Boards, focused energy, repeating mantras.

From a logical standpoint, we can look at it this way: If you assume the worst, you will subconsciously or more consciously work to make the worst occur. If you assume the best, you will subconsciously or more consciously work to make the best occur. It's very delicate. I observe it a lot in myself and in others. Attitude makes a HUGE difference on a micro level. If you go about your day with confidence and light that rivals the sun, you will attract good things to yourself and there's very logical reasoning for that. Well, I guess that's relative. I think we can all agree 'energy' is real. We all feel it but may have different names for it. It can be as simple as if you're projecting this beautiful, positive energy and perhaps you're having a job interview or something, you're gonna be more likely to get it. That's both because on a micro level our actions will be working you toward that goal, and it's because of your energy you're projecting

On more of an esoteric level, I do believe we all have power to create what we desire in our lives. It's not like it's magic or something, but I just believe we all have that power to create what we need or want in our lives. Vision boards, focused energy, mantras...yeah, no doubt those things help a lot. They help penetrate you down to the subconscious level which is important because you can know something logically or otherwise but not believe it and if you don't believe it, it'll stunt your actions and your energy. Sometimes it takes time...faking it until you believe it. Faking it by just going about your life pretending you believe something good, something you want is gonna happen, and as you get closer to it, the more you'll believe

When it comes to negative **** which is unavoidable, what you do is find the positives in it. Alchemy is what a lot of people are calling it now, but I don't know if I really like that term. However, it does fit. Take that **** and turn it into gold. Make it yours. Own it

On a spectrum, we have positive on one end and negative on the other, yet they're both part of the same extrapolated object. They're interconnected and always will be. That's why I don't really believe in avoiding the darkness, the negativity. We need it
So negativity isn't bad. Don't turn your face. Look it in the eyes, know it, study it, observe from every angle. It has no power over you. It has power, but it's power you can make yours

Re: Law of Attraction? Is it real? Vision Boards, focused energy, repeating mantras.

I also agree that optimism can be dumb, but it depends on how you're approaching it and where that optimism comes from. If you simply avoid the darkness, then optimism is dumb. If you look at all that darkness, the abject horror, the death, the loss, the suffering, the blood and guts and learn how to turn it into something good, then that optimism isn't dumb at all

The greatest advice I could give to anyone is to know your darkness and own it
That goes for fears too. Understand them, go deep then go deeper. It's not necessarily a bad thing to even dwell on our fears sometimes if it's for the sake of understanding them

I have this theory about some types of depression just being times in which we need to separate ourselves from life and reality and think, do that diving into the greatest depths of ourselves
