Step 1 - WTH is the Law of Attraction?
We bet that no matter where you are from, you have heard the common saying – “You reap what you sow.” And in reality, there might not be a truer saying in the entire world. Day to day, we are faced with the consequences of the decisions that we make. Sometimes, we are blessed with reaping amazing days, filled with magic. Other days, you get so much c**p and you can’t even begin to contemplate why has such a fate caught up to you. You were just minding your business, trying to get by day to day – right?
Well, that’s where you did wrong. Life isn’t only about surviving, it’s important to also experience things that give meaning to your survival. By shutting yourself off on autopilot, you are opening your mind to all the information around you – no filter included. Thoughts, lead to emotions, which change up your frequency, and sooner or later you start sending different vibes to the Universe – and usually, it is the wrong kind. Then, the laws of the universe take place and bounce back those vibes back at ya, 10 times stronger. Yes, we are talking about the Law of Attraction.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction is a simple principle on which mechanic the Universe works on. You attract the energy you give out. A simple law, that will continue to reflect on your life whether you believe it or not. The most important thing to understand is that the Law of Attraction is neutral. It doesn’t think, it doesn’t know who you are, what you are, what you’ve done, and whether you deserve what it’s sending out. It just reads vibes and bounces them back at the same place it got it from. So, in reality, you are in charge of your own reality. You are the creator of your fate.
It’s a hard pill to swallow when you realize that you might have been screwing yourself over unintentionally. But, don’t worry because there is a simple fix to make sure you send out the right vibes. And it all starts with your mind and thought process. There are two parts of your mind – your conscious and subconscious mind. By learning how each of them works, you can start changing your thought processes and remain in the now, instead of leaping out on autopilot.
What is the conscious mind?
Let's start at the beginning and talk about something you know best - the conscious mind. The conscious part of your mind is the logical part of your being. Every idea that you ever came into contact with is a choice. You can let it affect you, or you can let it go. Every thought that you had in your mind is part of the conscious mind. This is the part of your mind that has an intellect and goes through all the information that you are coming in contact with. In other words, whether it is a dress that you were checking out the other day or a quantum equation, your thoughts take residence in your conscious mind.
How does the conscious mind work?
Well, it's pretty simple actually. Your conscious mind is easy to understand. All the information around you and ideas that you come into contact with are either going through your mind and affect you or, you are ignoring them. So, you are the filter that decides what will go through to the conscious mind and what you will form thoughts about. This means that you are in absolute control all the time. Scary right? You probably didn't even realize how much control you have until now.
Just think about it, all the negative thoughts, you are the one letting them in. And those pesky thoughts are the root of all trouble. No wonder your magical spark is not a burning fire until now. But, what happens next? Well, every little thought you let through turns into images. Images turn into emotions fast. And those images and emotions are sent out to the subconscious mind for further processing.
What is the subconscious mind?
The subconscious part of the brain is the uncharted territory. It is an enormous database of everything that you ever let into your mind. It is a program that has a primary mission to accept every information it has been given and act accordingly. But there is a knack. The subconscious mind doesn't have intellect, reason or logic. It only understands images and emotions.
How does the subconscious mind work?
Emotions are just another word for vibes. Think of it as an equation with variables. You give values to the variables to get a result. But, depending on those variables you can get many results. However, no matter the result you get, the equation doesn't change. And that is how it is with the subconscious mind. It works on a program that never changes. The only variables are the vibes and the images it receives. Then according to the information it receives, it calculates the result and the actions to get that result. And then, you act according to it. Every tiny reaction creates ripples that come back to you through the Law of Attraction. So, the question is, how can you spark your magic up if you don't take better control of your thoughts?
Differences between the conscious and subconscious mind
Well, the main difference between the conscious and subconscious mind is obvious. While the conscious mind is in control of what the subconscious mind receives, the subconscious mind holds all the power. The subconscious mind receives all the information that is fed to it, and it has to accept them. The conscious mind chooses the information that it wants to process.
And this is very important for you to understand - no one can make you think something that you don't want to. You choose the little seeds called information that will further create ripples, activating the Law of Attraction, and you will receive the fruits of those seeds. Often, not quite the harvest you were hoping for because, in the modern way of life, we are often taught that the only way to get by is on autopilot.
