Why Isn’t The Law of Attraction Working?

Is it bunk? Are we doing it wrong? Is there something wrong with us that we can’t make it work? What’s the problem? The simple answer is that life is just an illusion anyway, so what difference does it make. But life is not an illusion. Duality is an illusion. And the problem with the law of attraction may have something to do with the fact that we’ve come at our understanding of it from a dualistic perspective. This show we are going to answer that question once and for all. So, if you are struggling with the law of attraction, or trying to create something in your life using vision boards, affirmations and positive thinking—this show is for you.

East to West

Before Eastern, particularly Indian philosophical and religious concepts were popularized in the West, there were not many allowable options for how a person might recognize the connection between mind and body, or how one might meditate and get in touch with deeper aspects of self. But even though the real explosion of the popularity of Vedic concepts occurred in the 1960’s people like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman were way ahead of the game as they subscribed to some of these concepts. Today, we want to learn more about this shift in consciousness, and Philip Goldberg, author American Veda: How Indian Spirituality Changed the West, is going to tell us all about it. This shift has enlarged our understanding of mind and body and is still dramatically changing how we see ourselves. This show is going to open our consciousness yet further as we explore the slow steady move from East to West.

The Power of Positive and Negative

Our current understanding of the law of attraction, as it has been set forth for us, is that what we need to be doing to fulfill our lives is thinking positive, imagining ourselves in the place of our dreams, perhaps creating a vision board or two and not allowing ourselves to think or feel anything negative. In this way, we will, by the power of our positive thinking, magnetize those things, places, people, financial means, and events which are certain to fulfill us. But what do we mean by positive and negative? What is a positive thought? What is a positive feeling? What is a negative thought or feeling? What if our definition of positive isn’t really positive at all? And is it possible that through our decision to square off against so-called “negativity” that we are taking away a huge portion of our power? Tune in to find out.

How to: Getting into the Flow

So, here’s the question: How do you do it? As I talk to more and more people about the newer and truer version of the law of attraction, this is the question I get asked. That is, after all the questions like: “How can I get a million dollars in the next year,” and “How can I attract my soulmate?” Those questions are based on the old understanding of the law of attraction, which tells us that all we need to do to attract from the external world all that fulfills internally, is to think positive, do a vision board, and do the work of removing blocks from the unconscious—and then our dreams will come true. That old understanding has us further splitting ourselves in half. But the new understanding, the true understanding unites us with divine Self. So, now that we know that, how do we get into the flow. This show will answer that question. Don’t miss it.

The Law of Attraction: Is it Really Working?

Several years ago, we learned of an energetic push/pull called the law of attraction. We understood this law to mean that if we thought positive and maintained a positive attitude, then positive things would come our way. So, we tried that for a while, until we ran into shadow material. To work with “blocking shadow material” we created vision boards, and turned affirmations into mantras, to eliminate potential sabotage. But, for many affirmations and vision boards simply didn’t get the desired results. What could this mean? Could it mean that there is no such thing as a law of attraction? Or, could it possibly mean that we need to revise our understanding of what this law is and what it does. Perhaps we need a giant re-think. This show and the book, coming out in September of this year, called The Law of Attraction: The Soul’s Answer to Why It Isn’t Working and How It Can, will grease the wheels of that re-think, radically revising our understanding of the law. Don’t miss this one!
