I have decided to go back to a subject I think is still important to explore more deeply. With all the talk about the Law of Attraction being “The Secret” to ultimate happiness, I have found that people are still confused, finding that there is a huge ‘gap’ in how it all really works. Although the Law of Attraction is one of several viable universal laws, meaning it is in action whether you recognize it or not, there are still two that come into play when considering manifesting your desired goals.

The second crucial law is Deliberate Creation, meaning you choose to focus in a particular way, which works in conjunction with the Law of Attraction, as to achieve a purposeful result.

However, it is the third that is most significant of all. The Law of Allowing is the actualization of the desire into our physical reality. First you know what you want, then you bring it into focus with intent, finally, you must allow it in by being in a receptive state when it comes.

"Oh, that should be easy," you say. "After all, why would I not be ready to receive the thing I truly desire?" It is not that you don’t want to receive it; it’s that you are unaware of how receiving it actually works. You may not know that you not in "alignment" to receive it. So you think this "stuff" doesn't work.

What the Law of Allowing means is that you must bring yourself into vibrational alignment with that which you desire. Being ready means you must resonate with it before it shows up. Just wanting it is not enough. Just seeing it is not enough. it may sound a bit more complicated than it actually is. Once you understand how to align your vibration, it is all really quite simple!

Most often when we want something in our lives; whether it is a job, a relationship, financial status or health, we let ourselves become scattered in our thinking and in our emotions. "I want this or that, but I will never, or I don't have, or I can see affording it, or there is no one yet." We feel sad or lonely or resentful or anxious or doubtful or impatient. Subsequently, because of these thought/emotional roller coasters, we find that we are getting more of what we don’t want rather than what we do want.

Again, understanding how to achieve what it is you are deliberately creating, via the Law of Attraction, is the difference between seeing it realized or not. The key element here is to know your job in the process. You have to learn “how” to be an "allower". And your emotions are the key to lead the way, if you learn how to follow their cues.

Let’s look at this from a straightforward view.

  • You are vibration.
  • Your thoughts are vibration.
  • You receive, discern and transmit vibrational signals.
  • Your physical five senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste) are used to decipher our ongoing standpoint at every moment in our life experience
  • Your emotions are a sixth sense that is giving you feedback to your point of attraction
  • The Law of Attraction is based on 'like vibrations attracting like vibrations'
  • Your thoughts attract other thoughts that ultimately manifests into physical representations of the thoughts (both wanted and unwanted)
  • Your emotions respond to your thoughts offering a signal as to how close or far you are to your desired thing, state of being, goal, relationship, etc.
  • Vibrationally, there are only two directions you can head: one is closer to what you want and the other is further from what you want
  • You can segment your thoughts or focus to a desired outcome
  • Your emotions are a barometer or compass to point you in the direction to achieve alignment with whatever your desired “goal” is.

Tip: You know you are heading in the direction of your goal when you “feel” some kind of relief (or better feeling) based upon the thoughts you are thinking or your focus in any given moment.

For example, let’s look at sight as one of the senses of focus. If you are looking at photographs of an ex-lover who deeply hurt you and you find that you now feel sad or angry, (vibrationally) you are, at that moment, heading away from the kind of relationship you truly desire. Your sad or angry emotions are like a warning. “You are heading in the wrong direction!” Now if you ignore the warning, watch out! The Law of Attraction is still at play and will attract more thoughts that match those feelings and you most likely will snowball in an undesired direction. If you ignore that emotion too long, you will not like what you get in the next relationship, even if you desired something better. By remaining aligned with the old relationship, you may get a different face at a different place, but you get the same thing (a bad relationship).

Now if you look at photographs of happy couples, and you feel hopeful that there is someone out there for you, (vibrationally) you are well on your way to finding that desired partner. If you just kept hanging onto hopeful thoughts, maybe even got excited at the possibilities of your desired new relationship, you will eventually be attracted to someone who matches that new vibration (which is what you truly desire).

Another tip: The more passion or excitement you feel about the receiving of a desire, the quicker it will show up.

It is not just the thought; it is actually the kind of emotion that the thought conjures up in you that matters most. The Law of Attraction does the rest. Your job is to keep the best feeling thought going-- deliberately and mindfully. It is not any particular action that determines your end result, but rather it is ultimately your alignment with the end result that calls you to take action. It is a natural progression when you allow yourself to take the path of least resistance.

Final tip: The practice of meditation brings you in a state of least resistance. Meaning, in a meditative state you are not attaching yourself to any particular thoughts or feelings. Therefore, you are in perfect state of Allowing.

Closing Note: I will explore more about how to use your emotions to guide you to achieve your goals in my upcoming MagsJOY Blogs. All comments are welcome. Even those like one I got a few weeks ago that said "what you are doing is fake, either you are fooling yourself or deliberately fooling others...shame." What I realize is that I cannot please every reader. That is the great diversity of this life experience. Especially when it comes to Blogging on the Internet.

My perspective, as I consider life from a window of light, is not to impart my beliefs onto anyone, but rather to evoke in the reader contemplative thought on finding their own personal truth. That is what every spiritual teacher has offered me. And I am thankful for it.

Keeping it light,

MEDITATION: Awareness vs. Positive Thinking

The thinking mind is a precious, unique gift to us humans. It has power beyond our own comprehension. However, if unmonitored, it can also become disjointed; ramblings of thoughts tossed about in our heads. States of confusion, being overwhelmed and even repetitive fear-based thinking can easily become a pattern in an uncensored mind.

Thinking is not the same as awareness. Awareness is the observer of the thoughts. It is the guard on duty 24/7. Watching, monitoring yet not judging. Awareness understands the importance and power of thoughts. It is there to instantly flash the light on them so that they can be seen clearly. It is not concerned for the thought itself as a reality, but merely illuminates the illusion of the thought. Awareness transmutes the confusion. It sorts out the details for a calmer approach. It pushes the forward button when the drama is stuck on replay.

Meditation promotes awareness. It doesn't try to change your thinking. It offers a way of being mindful to your thoughts. To deliberately become the observer; a participant in the process. Awareness is like standing on an overpass watching hundreds of cars pass on a freeway. You see them pass at different speeds. You take notice of color and shape. You make no attachment to any particular car. You just look as they move swiftly by, being replaced by more and more cars. That is how our thoughts operate. Hundreds upon hundreds of thoughts move through our minds each day. When you meditate, you simply become aware of how many there are until it no longer matters. You realize you are not your thoughts, but the one who watches them... and even the one who eventually gets to choose them.

This is not to say that you should choose to "think positive." Because positive thinking is a thought in itself. Therefore, you might find yourself caught in the web of the mind, yet again. Positive thinking will automatically occur when you put into practice the art of awareness. Through the stillness of mediation, you will discover your natural state of mind, which is nothing short of positive.

Just a thought for you to meditate on!

The following wise philosophy came to me from a pleasantly unexpected source...


When things in your lives seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous "yes."

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things--your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else---the small stuff.

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

"Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

"One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked.It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

...who usually fills his jar with coffee first and then wonders why he has no room for everything else! But there is hope. After all, he took the time to ask a client for a copy who had it posted on their bulletin board.

The beautiful part about life is that every moment of every day is a new opportunity to fill your jar in the most expansive way. It may even take emptying out completely what is not serving your highest good. Then you can fill it with awareness and consideration to what is truly important in your life.
