So a few years ago the movie ‘The Secret’ came out and a lot of people got excited about the idea that we can create whatever we want just by thinking about it. Napoleon Hill also shared this secret formula in his book, ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
This is exciting and it is true! However, there’s another secret that is not talked about that is just as important to understand. I’ve spoken before about how we have two minds, conscious and subconscious. While we may be focused on attracting what we want with our conscious mind, our subconscious mind is busy running old programs, movies and tapes and they are often negative and self sabotaging. The real secret is that our subconscious mind’s attracting ability is about 20 times stronger than our conscious mind. As you can imagine, this can be quite a problem.
I’ve seen this with many of my clients who know what they want but seem to keep attracting the opposite. The law of attraction begins very early in life. Negative experiences which create negative emotions and negative beliefs and programs start attracting similar experiences. If we’re bullied of made fun of we may attract a difficult boss. If our father cheated on our mother, we may attract men who cheat on us. I see this all the time and it’s so specific that it’s very easy to see the law of attraction at work.
This also works together in a couple of other ways. Our combined conscious and subconscious thoughts create our energetic frequency which we are beaming out around us like a radio frequency. People pick up on this and people that are an energetic match, so to speak, will be attracted into our energy field. If we have unhealed wounds or unresolved patterns, we will attract people on our same wave length or who share our particular flavor of dysfunction. Perpetrators find victims and victims find perpetrators.
Now, I think it’s important to understand that it’s not our subconscious mind playing a nasty trick on us. It’s actually working on our behalf or on the behalf of our soul, to create situations in which we can discover what we need to heal. It’s like our inner being is looking for a do-over, a chance to get it right this time, learn the lesson and heal the wound. While this may be for our benefit, it’s still a difficult and painful way to learn. And sadly, it often doesn’t work. We just keep attracting the same junk, making the same mistakes and we never really ‘get it’.
Understanding this is just the first step but it is a pivotal first step. It still doesn’t heal or clear things in our subconscious mind but we do have to at least be aware of what’s happening before we can seek help to change it.
To really clear your mind of these programs that are attracting what you don’t want into your life, you have to heal and clear your subconscious mind. There are MANY tools to do this. Tapping, Ho’Oponopono, hypnosis and NLP and many, many more. Find what works for you and keep looking till you find something that works. Trust me, it’s a lot easier than having to repeat the lesson by continuing to attract painful situations.
Once your mind is free and clear of the negative patterns, you can really begin to attract with the full power of your mind focused only on what you DO want. Then manifesting becomes easy and almost effortless. Yay!
