The Law of Attraction is among the most popular of the Universal Laws. Advocates of this mind-power paradigm generally combine cognitive reframing techniques with affirmations and creative visualization to replace limiting or self-destructive ("negative") thoughts with more empowered, adaptive ("positive") thoughts. A key component of the philosophy is that in order to effectively change one's negative thinking patterns, one must also "feel" (through creative visualization) that the desired changes have already occurred. This combination of positive thought and positive emotion is believed to allow one to attract positive experiences and opportunities by achieving resonance with the proposed energetic law.
Imagine you dreamed that you went to the store, and while in the checkout line realized that you were naked. The manifest content of this dream is the actual event: being naked in the line at the store. However, being naked in public (a common dream) often represents feelings of vulnerability. Those feelings - the deeper meaning of the dream - are latent content.
Arielle:It’s called the Law of Attraction and it says that you will attract to you those people, events and experiences that match your state of being. If you focus on having gratitude for the love, companionship and joy you have in your life right now, you will attract more of that into your life. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will send out a message of lack and you will attract more lack into your life.
So if you struggle with going after your dreams because you don’t feel like you are good enough, ask yourself, “what limiting belief holds me to this type of thinking?” You could easily believe that you shouldn’t be a millionaire, since no one in your family has done it. Your family might look down on people who are wealthy, and you choose poverty so they won’t treat you differently. Maybe you fear being in a relationship because you believe that you’ll always get hurt. And you might find yourself purposefully ruining good relationships due to that very belief.
I stumbled on your page a couple weeks ago. I’ve been coping with post partum depression for the past few months. Although medication has absolutely helped take the edge off, ever since reading your words I’ve felt a consistent and steady rise in my feelings of happiness. The medication helped stabilize my depression, that’s true, but your words helped me tap into my joy. Joy I haven’t felt in years, possibly since I was a child myself.
