“One view of the Law of Attraction focuses on external outcomes. It says that by creating a certain inner resonance you will attract an outer reality to match that resonance.
The inside view of the Law of Attraction focuses on the inner state. It notices that whatever is in your outer field of awareness is an out-picturing of the sum total of your consciousness.”
I often hear people say that the Law of Attraction isn’t working for them. Though it may FEEL like it’s not working, you can be certain it is – flawlessly.
The Law of Attraction may not be working the way you’d like, but on a soul level, it’s always working for you. It’s a virtual reality feedback system. You can see your soul lessons materialize before your very eyes, in 3D living color. That is so cool, isn’t it? Takes a lot of the guesswork out of wondering where this or that in your life is coming from! Well, maybe not a lot of the guesswork. But, definitely a little.
The real challenge in accepting what you see outside as a reflection of your own consciousness, lies in finding enough Love and Compassion within yourself to absorb it without judgment. It’s challenging because most humans have been trained in the art and application of guilt, shame and blame.
I’m not particularly fond of the Law of Attraction label. I much prefer Law of Resonance or Law of One. The popular meme that has sprouted from Law of Attraction tips the focus onto the “stuff out there.” Unfortunately, people default into disappointment and failure when they don’t manifest the “stuff”, only reinforcing the guilt/blame/shame cycle.
The truth is, Law of Attraction is unerringly in operation in every moment. In Love mode, you’re able to see your experiences for what they truly are, movements of consciousness designed to induce a deeper, broader and more thorough realization of your soul intent. From this perspective, judgment dissolves, forgiveness spontaneously arises and you can see the Law of Attraction in its pure form, a perfect mirroring of consciousness in the physical realm—resonance mirroring resonance.
I just emerged from teaching Core Initiation (Level 1) this weekend having made one point over and over again. At the core of every experience of separation from joy, connection and fulfillment lies guilt or judgment. By force of age-old programming, there is a profound tendency to judge one’s self whenever an experience is not unfolding according to “plan” or expectation.
Judgment naturally dissolves when you embody your core value. Your core value is an embodied understanding that your value doesn’t depend on the outcome of any experience. Enlightenment isn’t about some abstract ideal of perfection, it’s a capacity and ability to stay in Love with yourself no matter what is unfolding in the moment. That is unconditional Love in its most grounded and practical form.
Inside Law of Attraction lies the understanding that we can use manifest reality to illuminate that which is hidden from our awareness. The power of LOA lies in its revealing of shadow so that we might bring it the light of loving awareness.
Law of Attraction is never arbitrary. It will always provide a reflection of where Love is needed most.
