Have you ever had to sit by and watch a wonderful thing die a slow, humiliating death?
That’s pretty much how I feel right now as I watch from the sidelines as the glorious Law of Attraction is being both misunderstood by non-believers, and perverted into some grand money-making scheme by supposed followers.
The whole thing makes me ill, yet being a true believer and a true follower of the proper ways to utilize conscious creation in my life, I neither dwell upon nor give consistent thought to these negative circumstances.
Why, then, am I writing a blog post that calls attention to these things? After all, the LOA teaches only to notice – not to dwell upon – things that do not resonate with our desires.
I am writing – dear reader – so that you can see the difference between hype and hope, and so that an actual objective account of this situation can be given in order to avoid seeing a headstone like this one on display in public record.
There are two very basic reasons why the movie The Secret and subsequent teachings about the Law of Attraction have caused so much potential negativity in the world, and it boils down to nothing more exotic than human nature.
The need for Security
As a race, we have always had an instinctive need to know that “everything was going to be alright”. This need goes back as far as the days of prehistoric man seeking shelter in rock-solid caves, and continues as an integral part of society all over the world.
This quest for security has led us to scientific discoveries, philosophical understandings, and religious belief systems. Science, philosophy, and religion have been part of the human condition since time immemorial, yet suddenly an idea has come into the mainstream that challenges all three.
According to the Law of Attraction, science as we know it may not be as we know it anymore. Need proof? Go find me a quantum physicist who says he has all of the answers.
Philosophy itself has also been challenged by people who now say that humans have always had the ability to consciously create their lives. This throws historical record itself into chaos when you consider that this belief would have changed the very face of history had it been widely practiced centuries ago.
And what about religion? By using the LOA, are you denouncing your deity? Are you saying that there is no God? Are you saying that each of us IS God???
Whoa! This whole thing is starting to get a little bit out of control, isn’t it? Challenging science? Challenging philosophy? Challenging RELIGION??
I’m sorry, but this is just bringing up way too many questions that humans just don’t have answers for. Better to go bury that whole “attraction” business under a rock somewhere. We’ll all feel a lot better – a lot more secure – when things are back to the way they used to be and we had answers for all of this stuff.
I’m sorry to have to be the messenger for this less than savory bit of news, but it’s true. Greed is running rampant and everyone wants to cash in on the deliberate creation money train!
Ya know, it’s really funny that this is the case, because true believers know that abundance is everywhere and that greed itself is not only unnecessary, but that it will actually retard the power of the LOA, leaving the greedy person without the pot of gold they were hoping for
This greed has come up in every way imaginable, including teaching and coaching programs, books, seminars, audio programs, teleclasses, eBooks, and last, but not least, let us not forget the SPECIAL REPORT!
Whatever is in the SPECIAL REPORT must be really special, because this blog alone gets at least half a dozen spam comments every single day from alleged LOA practitioners who are offering the SPECIAL REPORT, and it’s FREE!
Okay, here’s a clue from me to you, SPECIAL REPORT PROVIDERS: I already know how to consciously create my life. If you had read through this blog you would know that I teach my readers how to create their lives, and your SPECIAL REPORT is of no interest to me or to my readers, which is why your daily spam comments keep getting deleted.
What about the rest of these product and service providers, though? There must be someone who really knows how to teach people to take control of their lives by using these principles.
You are absolutely right! Please don’t mistake my previous comments to mean that you shouldn’t listen to – and even pay for – the teachings of people who truly understand these concepts.
However, on that same token, do your homework. Any products or services that are being offered to you should at a bare minimum come with a money-back guarantee, and the seller or coach should have plenty of data to back up his/her expertise.
A blog that teaches about the Law of Attraction, a list of articles that teach about conscious creation, or a decent track record are all positive indicators. If someone has none of those, yet they are claiming to be an expert, what exactly are they an expert in, I wonder?
After reading all of this, is this really the end?
No, of course not! The principles of deliberate creation have been around literally since the dawn of time, and no present day insecurities or levels of greed are going to change that.
However, greed and insecurity are at the moment still an integral part of human nature. For that reason you will continue to see plenty of negativity surrounding these concepts, and you will continue to see a lot of people exercising their greed in order to take advantage of those insecurities.
Draw your own conclusions! Don’t believe me, and don’t believe your friends, co-workers, or family members.
Do your own research and decide whether or not you want to believe in and practice the many wonderful concepts that make up the Law of Attraction.
At a bare minimum, these concepts will make your life a happier and more positive place to be, and that is a fact that I am willing to share with you free of charge, no security blanket needed.
