That’s Not The Universe

The law of attraction is kind of bogus.

I said what I said.

It’s not that I don’t believe people can create their own lives and destinies. I do.

What the law of attraction attempts to do is move people into energy or the perception of creation. It encourages you to change your thought patterns, make your wording more intentional, and ask for what you truly want.

That’s not the universe though, that’s you.

Everything about our realities is based on our perceptions and these perceptions change, sometimes from moment to moment.

When you’re angry, you see conflict. When you’re scared, everything can be a threat. When you’re blissful, everything you perceive is through that state of bliss.

These things don’t depend on the universe providing, they depend on our awareness and our perception.

An example, if you are angry and frustrated, perhaps things have gone sideways at work, you will be more combative because you are, at that moment, perceiving everything through your anger and frustration. Jenny didn’t mean to piss you off more, she was just trying to offer you a mint but when we are existing in that state we see conflict everywhere.

In the same vein, when you are existing that perception of creation you see opportunity. You are more willing to follow those opportunities and do what’s needed to capitalize on them. You essentially follow, ask for, and create exactly what you want.

The law of attraction teaches us, in a roundabout way, to adjust our thoughts, perceptions, and energy but it attributes our successes and failures to a large, mysterious entity – “the universe” – and places undue pressure on the nature of our thoughts.

Why didn’t you receive the abundance you said you wanted? Maybe your thoughts were wrong. Maybe the timing was wrong. Maybe you just didn’t want it hard enough. Did you remember to chant your wants in present tense over and over?

A whole industry exists around this.

There is value in actively learning the power of our words, thoughts, and perceptions. There is also value in recognizing the work we have to do and attributing that where it truly belongs, to ourselves.

The law of attraction attempts to teach this but does so in such a removed way that people don’t truly become aware of their perceptions. Since success is attributed to the universe providing people don’t recognize how their actions and perceptions can change as a result of this new way of thinking.

Are you ready for an insightful look at where your energy and perceptions default? Do you want to change the way you view and interact with the world around you? I recently become a master practitioner in the energy leadership index assessment. It’s an attitude based assessment that measures your energy levels/perceptions across 7 energies.
