I was a teen back in the 80’s when my Dad first introduced me to the Universal Law of Attraction. He didn’t use that term for the science he was describing; in fact, when it first came up – he didn’t actually say anything at all, he just left Uncle Henry’s book sitting out where I would find it and be sure to pick it up. I guess I was about 13. The book was called, “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind.” At that time, I was already well-read in various religions, mythologies and philosophies and had read enough developmental- and abnormal child psychology to have at least a bs degree. I was highly likely to abscond with that book, and I did. Cognitively, I got it. Employing the mechanics of it for results was more challenging. Over the years, I have studied this in many different ways but had the same difficulty – except for in emergency situations. But for decades, I just wanted to be able to use this Law of Attraction effectively, at will.
I started to get a deeper grasp on it in a way that made me think I might be able to ‘work’ it, when I was in my early 30’s, via a verse from the New Testament – Hebrews 11:1, when one day I realized what it was actually saying. The verse goes:
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” -kjv
The first thing I realized was that I had the initial inflection wrong …
I grew up hearing this verse: “Now faith…” It dawned on me that it is more useful as: “Now faith…”
So it was describing that Law of Attraction principle that having faith in or being sure of what is hoped for, now – is the key to having it. This realization rang true and brought me a bit further, but I still had problems implementing the principle. It was very frustrating, for a good many years because I would hear people all of the time, figure the thing out. I finally had a breakthrough in 2012, when I realized where I was having a problem; it was in the now parts. Prior to this, I had been engaging in ‘positive thinking’ and affirmations, while staying wired to the undesired now, conditions. I had to learn how to do something mentally, that we all probably do with our eyes, from time to time, where we make things look blurry by deliberately softening our vision. So I was in this truly precarious situation with my teenage daughter where we needed to be able to survive safely. Money was much needed. I think desperation finally kicked it into the grok zone but it dawned on me at last that I didn’t need to wish for desire or call money to me but rather know fully, that it was already there – and in great abundance. A shift in perception needed to occur that real-eyes-is that the unwanted condition of being broke and in need, was a temporary illusion that became such the instant I set a different intention in motion. I knew I was onto something once it finally clicked because I could feel it … and it has been working, ever since.
