Beyond the Secret: Ten Steps for Spiritual Attraction

March 20, 2009

Below is a listing of the Ten Steps for Spiritual Attraction listed in my book
BEYOND THE SECRET: Spiritual Power and the Law of Attraction.

Ten Steps for Spiritual Attraction

Experience a 10 step process that will help you manifest the life you are meant to live.
It’s as easy as ONE, TWO, THREE!

O-N-E

Orient Towards Spirit.

Know that essentially you are Spirit. As you surrender to Spirit you come from fullness, not lack. Esentially, the more fulfilled you are the less you need to attract. Rather, you become a conduit for love to emerge and find true satisfaction in living a life of service.

Negate the Ego.

Discover the ways your ego stops you from experiencing true joy, satisfaction, and peace of mind. The ego is always about grasping. It feeds on fear and encourages a constant feeling of lack. Thus, you learn to observe your ego and infuse it with Spirit overtime negating it’s constant tendency to play what I call “The See Me Game”, which always calls attention to your little self.

Engage the Soul.

The soul is the bridge between Spirit and the ego. Essentially, the soul is consciousness and love. the ego is ultimately only diminished through love. As you engage the soul you clarify and strengthen your values. You live a life of love. And, you create soul stories instead of ego stories to inspire and motivate you.

T-W-O

Take Time to Align.

As your ego becomes filled increasingly with Spirit through consciousness and love, you shift your identity increasingly to BE-NESS, or Spirit. Now, you align the thoughts, feelings, and actions that exist in the realm of the ego by cleaning up negative karma and shifting old patterns so you can live more fully in the present moment.

Watch and Listen.

The more the various aspects of your ego (thoughts, feelings, actions) align with Spirit the more you are able to enter the silence. Here within the silence you enter the flow and follow in a more natural way what Spirit (which is you) wants for you to be, have, and attract in life. The intuition is also cultivated allowing you to listen more deeply to the realm of Spirit primarily through meditation and other intuitive means.

Order Your Thoughts.

As you descend more into the realm of thought (and the lower realms of the dense world of the ego) mind-stuff is activated. Always the grasping nature of the ego needs to be avoided at this stage, as it can easily come into play. As the mind is held in the light of Spirit, a concrete plan for manifesting your service emerges. Typical law of attraction tools such as visualization, affirmations, and mind-mapping are all useful at this stage.

T-H-R-EE

Tap Into Your Feelings.

Especially at the level of feelings the ego can overwhelm the original intention that Spirit is attempting to manifest and attract into your life. Learning to develop emotional mastery is especially important at this stage by understanding the gift of every emotion allowing you to use all of them in a conscious and effective way. Then your emotions can turn into a powerful tool for increasing the momentum you need to succeed to illuminate your life with love and to manifest your service lovingly into the world around you.

Highlight the Shadow in Others.

Especially as you prepare to manifest a service into the world the dense ego states of others (their thoughts, feelings, and actions) can rise up to oppose you. Learning to work with the ego states of others in a loving, detached, and effective way is important and helps you understand how to improve the situation by ideally transforming them, or if this is not possible coping with them, or if need be walking away from them altogether.

Remove the Shadow in Yourself.

As we near success in getting what we want the ego once again can rear it’s head. Jesus experienced this in the desert after his baptism and Buddha went through it under the Bodhi Tree. All the trappings of success can produce the “Shadow Side of the Law of Attraction” as we slip away from our identity with Spirit and once again get caught up in the lure of fame, wealth, beauty, and all the numerous games our egos play to try to “prove” how special we are, forgetting as Spirit all are special and we are everyone around us.

Execute and Easy Does It!

Moving into the realm of action skill is still required to manifest our service in the world. Skills inlcude the ability to develop a keen sense of timing, making sure you have something of real value to offer, and knowing how to build a support team to help you sustain what you manifest so it can come into full flowering in the world.

Simplicity a Key to Using the Law of Attraction Spiritually

February 1, 2009
Here are some key messages about Simplicity I have found since being inspired by Obama’s Inauguration.

SIMPLE GIFTS
(Lyrics to the song they played
before Obama took the oath)

‘Tis the gift to be simple,
’tis the gift to be free.
‘Tis the gift to come down
where we ought to be.

And when we find ourselves
in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley
of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend
we shall not be ashamed.

To turn, turn
will be our delight,
‘Till by turning, turning
we come round right.

WAYNE TEASDALE QUOTES

From his book, The Mystic Heart.

 

Why Simplicity is an Urgent Issue 

 

In our social realm, the adage “live simply so others may simply live” wisely demonstrates the practical efficacy of true spirituality. This dictum is a way to concentrate our minds and our efforts on changing how we live. It is not enough merely to talk about the need to change. Wee must in fact change! This change has to begin with each of us, or else our words are meaningless.

Simplicity as a virtue, knows only what is real. It will not tolerate useless complexity in how we live; it always challenges us to reduce everything to the essentials. It is not impressed with many things, but with few things used well, especially in service to others. Simplicity of life sees reality as it is: like humility, is is only comfortable with the truth. Simplicity is truth in how we live, unadorned and free. available and inviting to all, open to the world, and welcoming of its demands on us.

FROM PEACE PILGRIM

I took my vow of simplicity. I shall not accept more than I need while others in the world have less than they need. And that was what motivated me to bring my life down to need level for me. And, I realized that the need level of a pilgrim is about rock bottom. Most people would need much more than I need. For instance if you were called into the family pattern you would need the stability of a family center for your children. There are needs beyond physical needs. I’m not telling you that your need is the same as mine, but I’m just saying you find your need level. When I found my need level I found a wonderful harmony in my life. What I want and what I need are exactly the same. You couldn’t give me anything. I don’t need it. — Peace Pilgrim.

Simplicity of life is one of the inner resources that advances our common responsibility. It can have a major impact on altering how we relate to the earth, other species, and the poor. This element of global spirituality is necessary because we must simplify our lives if the Ecological Age does not require squandering our precious resources, degrading the environment, oppressing other species, and depriving the poor, simplicity of life reveals itself concretely as a great generosity of spirit.


The Secret vs. Beyond the Secret

December 2, 2007

Here is a review I posted on Amazon.com about The Secret book and my thoughts on in compared to my own book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleads and Misses the Mark, November 15, 2007

By  Dr Lisa Love “DoctorLisaLove.com” (Encinitas, CA United States) – See all my reviews

Take a basic principle, The Law of Attraction, which teaches you how to use your thoughts and feelings to get what you want in life. Sprinkle in a lot of hype and divorce it from deeper spiritual values and principles and you pretty much have THE SECRET. Fact is, it is no secret that people attract what they want; the key is to want the right things for the right reasons! Knowing WHAT TO WISH FOR, not merely how to wish is why I wrote my own book this year, Beyond the Secret  Here are a few of the 20 different points of disagreement I had with this book that I addressed in my own.

“You are the most powerful magnet in the Universe.” – The Secret.
“Who are ‘you?’ Who is the ‘you’ that is doing the attracting? Your spiritual self? Your ego? How can you distinquish between the two?” – Beyond the Secret

“Only do what feels good.” – The Secret
“Attempt to do what feels right. Feel good by doing good.” – Beyond the Secret 

“You cannot catch any illness unless you think you can.” – The Secret
“Even the most spiritual people amongst us may suffer from disease. The causes for disease are numerous and not always a result of your thoughts.” –
Beyond the Secret

“We never run out of good things because there’s more than enough to go around for everyone.” – The Secret
“There is enough for our needs, but not our greeds. Global warming is a problem right now precisely because as a species we are over-consuming. Remember the ego is afraid of not getting what it wants. When we are truly identified with Spirit we want everyone to have enough, not just ourselves.” –
Beyond the Secret

Look the Law of Attraction is neutral. It doesn’t care what kind of person you are, when you let the genie out of the bottle to make a wish. That is why I emphasize that the Law of Attraction is not just about “getting and spending”; that if wedded with deeper spiritual principles it can be understood as a tool for developing an authentic spirituality that leads us from a focus on consumption to one of contribution, or feeling that we are primarily here to make a positive difference in our world. After all, if we as a human family don’t make a more concerted effort to attract “spiritual abundance” over “material abundance” we may attract a lot of stuff to ourselves, but we won’t create a world we really want to live in.

That is why I believe it is time to move WAY “beyond” The Secret, and to put the horse before the cart so we can orient towards spirit, negate our egos, and attract soul qualities that will help us become better people, so we know what to attract that can be of benefit to ourselves and everyone around us. The Secret says practically nothing about this. Which is why I don’t think the Law of Attraction is the “greatest secret of the universe” as this book hypes it to be. I think learning the secret of Spirit is so we become loving and caring individuals capable of attracting and creating a better world. – Dr. Lisa Love, Beyond the Secret
