I was coaching a small business owner last week and he asked me about the law of attraction.
"Do you know about those people, that channel Abraham?" I did I told him. He asked what I thought about Jerry (deceased) and Esther Hicks and I said they are one of many teachers of the law of attraction and that there are many other universal laws.
"What about that movie, you know, about The Secret?" Yes, I indicated, that is a law of attraction book that also became a movie. He told me he knew someone who read those books and fell into financial ruin. My initial response to him was that the person experienced a gap in the understanding of the concept and the actual premise of the law of attraction.
If I may briefly expound: Universal laws, and there are seven (some will say there are more), include the law of the attraction under the heading of "The Hermetic Axiom of Cause and Effect".
We, as spiritual beings in physical bodies, are here on this plane to co-create our reality. When we co-create, we make an effort in the physical, through our actions, right thoughts, spiritual practice, gratitude and prayer and by putting those pieces in place, we effect our reality.
Many "Law of attraction" teachers focus on the financial aspect of abundance. Students may get the impression that money alone will somehow become their reality if they just practice saying a particular affirmation or whatever the prescribed formula may be.
Spiritual growth includes the law of Cause and Effect and as your consciousness shifts and expands, your reality reflects that new awareness. The results are truly individualized--meaning your abundance may be peace, happiness, increased spiritual awareness, love of the present moment and the ability to feel and see the inner-connected-ness of the universe through synchronicities, signs and symbols.
We are co-creating with the Universe every moment. That is our divine right. What we we receive is up to us.
