Perhaps, it wasn’t called The Law of Attraction in times past. It might have been considered plain, common sense. Just as with gravity – where we learn quickly what falling means and how consistently it occurs – law of attraction describes a simple and straightforward dynamic: Energy follows focus. What we expect is what we attract. The world view we hold is what shapes the interpretation of our experience. As far as I can tell, it’s as consistent as gravity.
Why then, I wonder, are there so many books on the subject these days? What makes law of attraction a movement now instead of – say – The Law of Gravity movement? What is there to learn from this concept that requires years and years of study?
I ask this question from the perspective of one who just spent 14 years immersed in the ‘teachings’ of law of attraction. This is the question foremost on my mind for the past month or so, and last night – just as I was falling into slumber – I got this answer:
Shift the focus. Perceiving the law of attraction as an external condition that shapes reality misses the mark. Reality occurs Within. Clarify intention. Focus on the law of intention for the law of attraction to integrate fully.
Clarify Intention. The Law of Intention (maybe I should get that trademarked; >).
Intention is an internal event. At the core of every thought and action, there is intention. Perception, as well, shapes itself from the essence of intention. If, instead of asking myself, “Why am I attracting this?” or “How do I attract what I want?”… both questions, by the way that fueled years and years of study into the law of attraction… What if I ask myself, “What do I intend in this experience?” or “How do I intend in alignment with the fulfillment of my desires?
It is a subtle shift, but I feel the difference. Clarifying intention is a path of empowerment; a choice to claim full responsibility for the point of consciousness that attracts. It is an invitation to integrate desires and sense of purpose and nature as an individual into an evolving awareness of All I Am. While law of attraction says “Find the happy thought and stay in it to attract fulfillment.”, law of intention states, “Be congruent in the integrity of what powers you at the core of Being to clarify the intention that shapes your attractive vibration.”
Both ‘laws’ work in collaboration for our evolution as creative masters of our reality. My clarified understanding now is that law is attraction, like gravity, simply is. Law of intention is where I mold the clay, as it were, to shape my world.
What do you think about this idea?
I love you. Thank you.
