If you’re anything like me and a lot of people who are into self-improvement (and on some level you are, coz otherwise why would you have attracted this site into your life- think about it!), you like the idea of being able to live the life you want to create. In this case, the Law of Attraction has a lot of appeals because it basically says you can attract the things you want. Beautiful! But why do we succeed at attracting some things and not others no matter how many Affirmations we repeat and how pretty our Vision Boards are? Why do some things happen and others don’t?
For that, we have to go back to our understanding of it. I’m going to reference Teal Swan in her reframing of the Law of Attraction as the Law of Mirroring. Simply put, what your Outside 3D Reality REFLECTS is your inner energetic reality. You cannot “attract” a different 3D Reality unless you change it inside energetically first. Like she pointed out, you cannot modify the image in the mirror, you have the modify the person whose image the mirror reflects. Aha!
Still with me? Good, coz we’re gonna take it a step further. The attraction point happens in the SUBCONSCIOUS Mind where the beliefs that run our lives are programmed, not at the CONSCIOUS Level where you set your goals. Remember, those affirmations you’re repeating until you’re blue in the face? That repetitive action happens at the Conscious Level. It turns out you gotta do A LOT- and I mean A L O T – of repetition to get them to work in the Subconscious Mind. This is what you haven’t been told. Massive repetition is one way to get a belief into your Subconscious Mind, but it’s lengthy, it takes a lot of discipline and it’s not always easy to implement. Still, credit where its due. It does work, but with varying results due to people not utilizing it properly or enough.
Think about it this way- how many times did you have to repeat the multiplication table to remember it? And that was during your childhood when the brainwaves you were experiencing were friendlier to absorbing new information. Now apply that process to any new belief you want to implement and count on it to take longer if the belief you are looking to implement is contradictory to the one you are experiencing, and of course, it is, otherwise, why would you wanna implement it? Lol. Oh, the irony. I feel you; hence my frustration and my search for answers all these years. Luckily for you, I got them and I’m now sharing my findings in my writing and through my Services.
There are of course other ways to replace old Limiting Beliefs with New Ones that will reflect the life you want to live. I wrote about them in 4 Ways We Create New Beliefs and Patterns.
