If the Law of Attraction truly works and is the secret behind the “Secret” does that mean people live in poverty because they’re not positive thinkers? Perhaps you can hold the parents accountable for the mess their societies are in but why would you blame the children? Do they just need to visualize a pile of cash?
Or do they need clean water, better schools and an infrastructure to support a modern economy?
Unlike many, I’ve seen the poverty this poverty first hand in Bangalore, India. I’ve seen children sold into slavery, addicted to drugs and young women forced into prostitution. It seems absurd and insensitive to say that positive thinking will just will away these problems.
I had been somewhat skeptical about the Law of Attraction when I didn’t understand what it was really about. However, even those who dismiss the Law can still learn from it.
You might not be a Christian but you can certainly learn a valuable lesson or two from the New Testament. As a matter of fact, I’m not a Christian but I have read the Bible and found the historical character of Jesus to be someone I can learn a thing or two from. Even the philosopher Nietzsche (who by the by, was a total atheist!) expressed admiration for Jesus the historical figure.
I have realized that success in life (for those of us in 1st world countries and reasonably safe circumstances) is largely a product of mindset. It’s not easy to have that mindset. Most of our lives we’ve surrounded ourselves with negativity, limiting beliefs and they’ve all embedded themselves very deeply into our psyche.
How do we make a meaningful committed change that can last a lifetime?
I believe the change has to happen at an unconscious level because mindset is rooted in beliefs.
While I confess to being a cynic, I don’t doubt for a second that the Law of Attraction and some of these exercises around visualization actually do make for a better mindset.
I recently read Victor Frankl’s account of the Holocaust and it became clear to me that while he never attended a Tony Robbin’s seminar in his day he was using visualization to get through the horror of his situation.
Here’s quote from Frankl’s book:
“My mind still clung to the image of my wife. A thought crossed my mind: I didn’t even know if she were still alive, and I had no means of finding out (during all my prison life there was no outgoing or incoming mail); but at that moment it ceased to matter. There was no need to know; nothing could touch the strength of my love, and the thoughts of my beloved. Had I known then that my wife was dead, I think that I still would have given myself, undisturbed by that knowledge, to the contemplation of that image, and that my mental conversation with her would have been just as vivid and just as satisfying.”
It was ultimately Frankl’s beliefs and mindset that helped him survive the Holocaust. Afterwards, he went on to live in Austria and lived to a ripe age of 92 (and btw, he wrote a great book called “Man’s Search for Meaning”).
We’ve all been programmed with a lot of baggage over the years.
This programming has come in a very direct manner from our parents, our siblings, manager, co-workers and the friends we have in our lives. This programming has also come in a very in-direct manner from the media we expose ourselves too and all the “background noise” of our life we think we’re ignoring.
So how do we undo it?
It’s not easy over coming this baggage. It’s not easy overcoming ourselves. So here’s my “secret” for making a meaningful and lasting change.
This is perhaps the most valuable lesson I’ve learned in life. By the way, Victor Frankl has an interesting quote about this:
“For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue”
For me it’s been a two step process;
Find a purpose and meaning in life greater than your self. Commit yourself to this and go after it with a plan.
Use entrainment, trance meditation to undo the bad programming. Again, the bad habits are sitting inside the deep recesses of our mind and conscious efforts to change just lead to struggle and failure.
Now finding purpose is easy for some and seemingly impossible for others. But it’s pretty easy to understand what I’m talking about here isn’t it? Once you know your purpose you can at least start planning how you’ll go after it.
People are driven by purpose and meaning. If you need forward momentum in life better understand your goals.
What if you don’t know your purpose? Then make one up and go on to step 2. You’ll find, the stuff in 2 (entrainment, hypnotic trance, meditation etc.) helps you to better understand yourself and figure out the stuff in 1 (purpose and meaning).
Once you have those defined you can let the bad programming (cyncism, self doubt, insecurity, feelings of scarcity) all undo themselves.
I listen to isochronic tones daily. They’re these recordings which are made at certain frequencies that mimic the frequencies our minds are in when they’re highly creative, focused and productive. The science behind this is that we’re “training” our minds to be in this productive and creative state more and more.
The problem with any sort of entrainment/isochronic solution or hypnosis program is the majority of them are low quality. They just don’t work or are poorly recorded. I remember downloading a few that sounded like they were made by a voice over actor just reading through some scripts.
Good hypnotic inductions are properly paced, spoken with the right tone and last anywhere from 15-25minutes. Good entrainment audios are recorded in high fidelity, reach out to you when you listen to them and in a way “zero out the mind”.
