Hello hello my friends!
Today we continue our exploration of the 12 Universal Laws (aka "guidelines") by jumping into everyone’s favorite: the Law of Attraction. Normally I would jump right into the description of the law, but today I want to give a bit more info on the workings of the 12 laws, together, because this law is often singled out or prioritized more than the others. So let’s address that.
How the 12 Universal Laws Work Together
As I’ve said before, we can’t pick and choose the laws we follow, they’re all applicable all the time, equally, but we like to think some laws are more important. That’s probably my biggest annoyance with the Secret documentary—it’s only oriented toward the Law of Attraction. All 12 are required, all the time, to manifest the things you want.
Have you ever seen a 3D puzzle in the shape of a sphere? I like to view each law as if it’s a piece of one of these 3D puzzles. Without one piece, the structure is weak and delicate, but when they are all together it holds. Each law supports the structure of our 3D spheres and they intertwine with one another in the process. Like I’ve said in the last few episodes these laws have a lot of overlap, but they also have their own distinctive qualities as well.
And the reason most people focus more on the Law of Attraction is because it seems to have the MOST overlap, but that doesn’t mean it’s superior. With that, let’s get into it:
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is exactly what the name describes: the concept of attracting things to yourself. However, when we think of the word 'attraction', we typically think of “opposites attract” because that’s what we were taught about magnetism, but this concept is not true for energy. Instead, think of it this way, most people can hear frequencies between 20-20,000 Hz. If there is a sound that is 1 Hz or 40,000 Hz, we’re not likely to hear it because it’s not in a frequency that we register. This is how you can think about the Law of Attraction. To manifest the things you want, you have to get on the right frequency so it's recognized.
To pick up on a frequency you want, you have to tune into that range, that higher frequency to get the message you want—it’s about like attracting like, or like vibrating to like. What we put out there determines what we get back. Another way people like to look at this is that positivity attracts positive things, and negativity attracts negative things. Easy enough, right? Nothing ever is....which is why manifestation gets a bad rap. Everyone thinks, "if it's just that easy.... why doesn't everyone do it?" Or, my other favorite, "why are bad people still successful if manifestation is real?". I've actually covered both of these answers in other long winded episodes, so I'll spare you today.... I won't get into that again (right now).
To have the life you want, you have to become the type person that attracts those things to yourself. In other words, you have to get your mindset right which is why I talk so much about mindset on this podcast. If you can get your mind right, you will get your life right. You have to assume that identity, the identity that you want, because taking on a new identity will change your emotions, behaviors, AND thoughts--changing your lifestyle. You have to ascend to the vibration that matches the success you want and tune into that frequency.
I like to have people think of Elle Woods when I describe stepping into your vibration. About a quarter of the way through the movie Elle adopts a new belief and begins acting on it, changing her energy. When she starts getting after it through action and doesn’t let anything stop her, she starts to see things falling into place for her. I know it’s just a movie, but that’s how it looks and feels to step into the identity of the life you want. That is the kind of tenacity and belief you need to have in yourself so you can resonate at the higher level.
The hardest part of all of this, and the reason I talk so much about mindset is because you can't "fake" this belief and have it work long term. Don’t get me wrong, I like the concept of “faking it till you make it” as a way to become more comfortable sitting as that type of person, but you have to actually start to believe in yourself at some point for it to work long term. You can’t sit and brood in the “faking it” belief system. You have to get to a point where you’ve faked it enough that now you genuinely believe you have become that person. You have to KNOW you are that person now.
You have to know without a doubt that the success is coming, but most people struggle to get to a place of absolute belief. Hell, you're choosing to listen to me and I’ve only scratched the surface of this success within my corporate real estate business! Don't get me wrong, I won't discount my success, but it came after years of working on my self-worth and confidence issues. I take each step one at a time and everyday I believe in my ability more and more. When I couldn't afford gas or rent, I couldn't imagine my life if I made six-figures a year but I could imagine making $40k so that's what I did. When I had my first six-figure year, I couldn't imagine making $300k, but I could imagine making $200k, so that's what I did. When I had my biggest year yet, I couldn't imagine hitting a million dollars yet, but I could imagine getting about halfway there, so that's what I did. AND I'm still working on inching my way up and gaining more self-confidence as I go to prepare me for the next step up.
We're only limited by our own beliefs and it's okay to think "maybe I'm not energetically ready to believe in that $1M is possible for me YET". There is absolutely no shame in that. OR, maybe that isn't your goal at all. Success is different for us all. It's okay to have goals that scare you that you don't believe in yet, but how can you inch closer and closer with each jump forward? I'm going to keep using the money example because it's easy to conceptualize: I still have a ton of limiting beliefs I'm working through surrounding scarcity and money. So, maybe I don’t believe, I mean deep in my gut, that I can become a billionaire.... but do I believe I can manifest $5k more? $50k more? 100k more? 200k more? And so on. If I can leap frog off of these goals and believe in the micro goals, eventually we find ourselves staring out our "oh shit" goal and it's no longer scary. It's just the next step, and it feels right. We believe, so we receive. Eventually, when we’ve allowed ourselves to believe in these smaller stepped goals, we begin to see own our power and give ourselves permission to dream bigger while maintaining belief. Over time, we will feel more confident in our power as manifesters and we will simply create.
You won’t manifest success if you do not think you’re worthy of it. You won’t manifest the goals that you view as too out of reach. You won’t manifest money if you’re skeptical. You won’t manifest the kind of love you want if you won’t love yourself.
Manifestation is not about going from $5 to $1M overnight. Like I just talked about, this type of jump usually takes time to build a foundation for the beliefs to form. It’s gradual. For many of us, this occurs over a lifetime of work… unless you’re just an extremely confident and resilient person naturally, which is rare. This is also why 70% of lottery winners end up broke and declare bankruptcy; they never learned how to handle that money, they blow it with their scarcity behaviors, and they're not on the energetic level of the person that has that kind of money, so they can’t hold onto it long term. They don't believe they're worthy of that money or they think that it won't last, so it doesn't. Most people that win the lottery are quoted saying, “they can’t believe it”. THAT is the problem—their beliefs (and therefore their thoughts and behaviors) about money, their worth, and scarcity didn't change with their new found wealth. They couldn't handle the jump. In fact, I'd love to see the statistics for the remaining 30% that maintained their wealth after winning the lottery. If I were to take a guess, I'd say they came from a level of wealth that was CLOSER TO their new found wealth (like mid to upper middle class) so that scarcity wasn't as much of a factor.... You know, just things I think about in my spare time. ;)
According to the Law of Attraction, if you’re constantly pessimistic and down, you will not attract good things to yourself. If you have a vibration in line with Eeyore, you will manifest more of the disappointment and reasons to believe the world is against you. So, you have to step into the vibration of someone who has the things you want in order to attract them to you.
You get what you focus on. You get what you believe you’re worthy of.
If you want more love from others, give more love to yourself first. If you want more success at work, reflect on the success you’ve already achieved and allow yourself to feel successful NOW. If you want more travel, start thinking about where you could go RIGHT NOW! Not later, now. If you want to work your way up to a million dollars, start with a belief about an additional $10k first and work your way up the abundance ladder. Allow yourself to live in the world where you already have the things you want, where you genuinely believe these things are possible for you, and you will start to attract those things to you.
Thank y’all so much for hanging out with me today! Have a fantastic rest of your week, and I will catch y’all next Monday. Until then, go out there and manifest some miracles.
