9/11, Katrina, The California Fires. Crises happen and demonstrate the law of repulse in motion as something is lost. These crises can be huge and involve millions, or small and involve mainly ourselves and a few family members or friends. After anything is repulsed in our lives, we have an opportunity to attract something new. Will we do so in the usual “same-ol’, same ol'” state of consciousness? Or, lift ourselves to a more expanded state of conciousness where we can attract to ourselves a better life and better world. Using the ten step process (grouped into ONE, TWO, THREE) in my book, I would like to illustrate a new law of attraction approach.
Remember, the “same ol'” approach happens when you attract anything from the same old state of consciousness. Especially after a major crisis, it is time to practice the ONE steps. Here are examples:
Orient Towards Spirit — Time to expand to include the whole. Seek to understand things from a broad spiritual persepective. Regarding the recent fires consider that these types of crises are not only limited to you, Southern California, or even the United States. That’s why I posted earlier about global warming and the CNN Planet in Peril special being broadcast. These fires are due a lot to draught! Draught is due to global warming. Global warming is a massive crisis going on all over.
Negate the Ego – I write in my book that the ego lives in fear and is always afraid of loss. It also plays the “See Me” game, see how alone I am, traumatized, etc. There is nothing wrong with fear, as I write in my book it has its uses, but the more we can expand beyond it, the more we can become proactive, create soul stories, and attract what we need NOW. We see the ego at work whenever it stops us from coping well. We also see it at work when we use crisis to take unfair advantage of others attracting to ourselves only that which is for our own personal gain.
Engage the Soul – The soul works mainly through love. I have been impressed by the love and care I am viewing with friends, family, neighbors, members of the Southern California community. Love brings us courage. Love gives us faith. Love causes us to step up and care about others. Love leads us into service. Instead of “what’s in it for me?” we ask, “How can I help?” and we attract the solutions we need to be of service in an effective way.
Take Time to Align — Since we have taken time to expand our consciousness we can now align our mind, emotions, and actions with the new ways we need to think, feel, and behave. Do we need to rethink how we will approach the overall problem of global warming? How we use existing water resources? The kinds of homes we build? Can we feel excited about an opportunity to implement new ways of rebuilding our lives and the overall community? Will this excitement move us into action to do what’s new, instead of rebuilding along the same old lines because we live in and therefore keep attracting from the same old state of consciousness?
Watch and Listen – Especially after crisis it is time to meditate on the new solutions. What are they, not only for ourselves, but related to how we are called to serve others to create and attract a more life sustaining future for the human race and our planet overall?
Order Your Thoughts – All those visualizations, affirmations etc will be based on your old, or new, state of consciousness. If you haven’t done the ONE steps, it will most likely be the same old stuff you attract to yourself. That’s why my book emphasizes the need to practice the ONE steps before you begin to move to the TWO steps.
Tap Into Your Feelings – Many law of attraction books as I have written help primarily here, helping you to elevate your feelings. Of course, as my book illustrates, there are different approaches to this that come from other techniques such as Rational Emotive Therapy (around since the 1950’s) and Focusing (around since the 1970’s). Consider working with your feelings using those methods as well. As you do so you will be able to move forward in the most constructive way. And if you have practiced the ONE steps, you will be more likely to “feel good” by “doing good” as well.
Highlight the Shadow in Others – When watching TV about the recent fires, some positive things have happened in the way people are coming together in a more effective way than they did in the San Diego fires 4 years ago. But, I am also hearing stories of how 4 years ago many recommendations were made to help the area fight fires more effectively that were never followed. Remember, as I write, the old will resist the new. The old will want to attract the “same ol’, same ol'” way of being. The more you can be aware of how this will happen, the more you can work through this resistence constructively.
Remove the Shadow From Yourself – Which is what the ONE steps help you do. They expand your consciousness so you know how you can be different. However, we all have experienced resistence. When I work with clients I call this the “what’s stopping you” process. And, most of my work (especially due to my extensive training and decades of experience), is along the lines of helping people get the breakthroughs they need so they can finally change not only their thoughts and feelings, but their behaviors as well.
Execute and Easy Does It! – Which as I write in my book requires a lot of skill as we manifest.
Overall, those of us who practice law of attraction techniques have a huge opportunity here. But, only if we stop using the law of attraction in the same old ways. That’s why I am grateful if you are reading this post, or have read my book, because we can create the revolution of heart needed as we use the law of attraction that is so needed right now in our world.
