Lol nice example with the tits. But to quote our friend UE ‘The vocab is apt’
We have this view in life that everything exists only on the physical plane. Even those with a spiritual leaning generally keep this world separate
from their everyday life venturing only there during meditation and when it is brought onto the physical plane it is only done so in terms of codes of
behaviour or attempting to perceive a situation from a different pov. Today’s scientific instruments function just fine for what they were designed
to do – measure and collect data about various physical phenomena. But what exactly is the ‘physical’? Broken down to its most fundamental level
it is merely energy; and this energy has been shown in a few remarkable physics experiments to be responsive to human consciousness. And not just in
the here and now (well actually there is only the here and now…) but in a way that shows it is not constrained at all by time.
And this is how we create our own reality every day. But we have all been brainwashed from birth to believe the only control we have is over our own
physical bodies. But this is only the very tip of the iceberg. Every experience we have we create ourselves and it is this reason that LoA and to a
certain degree magick work.
This is usually the point when the naysayers jump in with ‘what about all those paedophile victims or victims of domestic abuse or the starving kids
in Africa. How can you be so heartless and tell them that it is all their own fault for not thinking happy thoughts’. But the answer to that is
2fold. Firstly try telling a starving kid in Africa to believe he will get food, but at the same time not to care whether he/she gets it or not. Cos
this is in short is the frame of mind one has to hold if LoA is to succeed. And a very hard thing to do if you’re a day or so away from dying of
starvation. Secondly you have to keep in mind you are not just your own wants and fears, you are also dealing with everyone else’s wants and fears
as well. No matter how grounded you are it only the energy of one frantic panicked mind to completely through you off. And if you’re stuck in
wartoen Africa or an abusive household any beliefs you may have that things may get better are completely countered by the already proved beliefs of
the warlord or the abuser that he will get what he wants.
This is why most occult traditions have a tradition of secrecy and why so many enlightened men seek solitude… simply to distance themselves from the
interference caused by the doubters and the haters.

LOA and subconscious mind in psychology, might very well be describing the same exact thing, but from two different philosophical angles.
Exactly. Find the source of consciousness and you will find the source of all things wonderful in this universe. Even to this today neuroscientists
cannot pin down where in the brain consciousness springs from. This is because although it resides within the brain, it is not bound by the brain. The
Double Slit experiment proves this. Many New Ageists such as myself are often given a lot of flak because we take these discoveries and apply them to
aspects of spirituality which are simply not provable. But just the other week we have two eminent physicists release their ‘Quantum Theory of the
Soul’. A theory which is completely sound mathematically, but as it stands at present is completely unprovable through todays scientific means. But
science, psychology and spirituality edge ever closer and I fully believe we will see a day when the wisdom of the mystics is finally proven on a
scientific level. I just hope this incarnation of myself is still alive when it happens…

That's the interesting part. How do you know when you're just imagining it, or when it's real, especially when in order for it to work, you sometimes
have to want it so bad that it's possible you could even trick yourself into believing it happened?
It's a catch-22, but maybe that's the point. As long as we believe we're satisfied, there's no point chasing it further. And maybe that's the lesson
in all of this. Maybe that's the purpose of Law of Attraction: be satisfied. As long as you keep wanting, you'll never have what you want.
Depends what you wish to achieve within this incarnation. LoA can be used by anyone no matter what their spiritual level, for we are all constantly
our own creating reality. But in the hands of the beginner (and I myself am only a beginner) it only works in spurts and splutters because our mind is
full of chatter and distractions. The closer you align yourself with your higher self and the true spiritual goals you were put on Earth to achieve,
the more LoA will begin to happen automatically. This is what all those housewives who bought Rhonda Byrnes ‘The Secret’ after seeing it on
Oprah’s Bookclub do not understand. And this is why it does not work for them. It sure worked for Rhonda Byrne though. And despite opening up the
whole system to ridicule, she has started the ball rolling and gotten the message out thus allowing those who understand the subtle nuances of the
universe to pursue the matter further.
But if in the process of discovering your life,s goals you want a nice house, more cash or a new car then all the better to you for it. There is
nothing wrong with indulging in the physical (for we are at present mainly physical beings), just as long as you don’t lose yourself in it.
I was once a meth addict with no fixed address. Now I have two degrees in Science and Arts, 3 beautiful children and make more than enough to be
comfortable (although I don’t need too much to be comfortable). And I’m not even 30. I have everything I could have ever imagined as a child I’d
want out of life and this leaves me free to a certain extent to pursue other interests. Why? Because I am no longer distracted by the needs of my own
This is my friends is LoA
