Law of Attraction and Aligning with Truth
Your thoughts decide what stream of consciousness you are aligned with.
I have a question about the law of attraction. On one hand it is says that “thoughts attract things” and that we are the “creators of our life.
Then on the other a lot of teachers say to not pay too much attention to our thoughts as they are just thoughts, and that life is in charge, not our thoughts (thoughts are not who we really are and we should just be the observer of them etc).
Even after years of reading books about this, it still confuses me. I get scared when I have negative thoughts, as every time something negative happens I believe I created it as by the law of attraction.
Or for example when you want something too much, by the law of attraction supposedly you actually push it away as you are focusing on not having it!
How does it work in your opinion?
Law of Attraction and Your Alignment with Truth vs Ego.
There’s a lot I can say about the law of attraction! 😊
“On one hand it is said that “thoughts attract things” and that we are “creators of our life.”
Yes, this is true. It really is all about your focus and attention.
You are right now creating your life-direction by showing interest in what I have written to you here in this article for example.
And by reading this article you will take some kind of action that continues on the momentum of what is being created here, right now.
But, you can also decide to not read this, and instead go and have a beer and watch a soap-opera on Netflix.
Or, you can decide to go and call your mom instead, or log into Facebook, go for a walk, read a book, or do something else, and by that change the direction or your life once again.
So each moment is a moment of choice, of creation, and every choice you make, creates a change in your life, and every change is a complete change.
You can choose this direction, or that direction, or you can go this way or that way, look here, or look there, you can do whatever you want, and wherever you ‘look’ (focus your attention), that’s the direction your life will take.
And it happens every moment of our life, and that is how you mold consciousness, which is what your life really is, it’s a mirror of your consciousness.
You can read more articles about that here:
Like for example, if you were interested in getting a dog, then you would read a lot about dogs, watch training videos maybe, and just be focused on dogs overall.
But if you suddenly changed your focus towards cats instead, then Life would give you a lot of cat-stuff instead to focus your mind on, and it works like that with everything in life.
Whatever you focus on (“think about”), grows. So that’s how “thoughts attract things”.
We are the creators of our life in the same way; that’s how life is being manifested moment by moment.
You can’t be creating and manifesting a beautiful life for example if you’re focused on (again; ‘thinking about’) how hard things are and that things will never get better.
The mind has a way of assuming things and jumping into conclusions that has no base in Reality, and the ego thrives on fear and worry, so a person who doesn’t have any self-awareness, they live their whole life in that state, in a limited perspective and state of mind.

“.. a lot of teachers say to not pay too much attention to our thoughts as they are just thoughts, and that life is in charge, not our thoughts (thoughts are not who we really are and we should just be the observer of them etc).”
This is also true. It’s part of the paradox of life! 😊
You are not your thoughts, you are the one noticing the thoughts, you are also not your feelings, you are the one noticing the feelings.
But what this also means is that since you are the one noticing them, you are also the one in charge of them in terms of what you allow into your consciousness (mind) and how you prefer to feel.
You can watch your thoughts all day long if you want to without doing anything about them, that’s your choice, but the question is:
Is what you’re doing helping you? Is it moving you forwards?
Just watching your thoughts can offer some relief (and it is important to learn how to detach from them), but when it comes to the law of attraction and manifesting; you do have to clean up your ‘inner stuff’ before you can manifest a different outer life.
We have full control of things like our consciousness and our energy, that’s what’s in our power to change, and when we change those things, when we have inner shifts, then our outer life changes too.
But we have no control over How and When things will happen, those things are completely out of our hands.
Life is in totally control over that, we have zero control in that part of Creation.
The What is something we have control over; meaning, you are free to choose whatever path you want to take in life and whatever kind of life you want to live.
We also have full control of our attitude and the way we choose to deal with the things that happen in our life.
We can choose to see things through the eyes of Spirit, or we can choose to see things through the eyes of the ego, we can flow with Life, or we can go against it, that’s our choice to make.
All those things are related to our consciousness and energy, but then there’s things that we’re just predestined to experience in this lifetime, that are just bound to happen because they’re meant to happen, and that includes both the ‘good’ and ‘bad’.
Next you wrote;
“I get scared when I have negative thoughts, as every time something negative happens I believe I created it as by the law of attraction.”
“Negative” is your perception, that’s all it is, it’s not necessarily the Truth. It’s just a point-of-view, a perspective, and you can change that.
Again; we are not in charge of the How of things, so when something “negative” happens, it’s actually happening for us, even if can’t see that when we’re in the midst of a challenging or difficult experience.
So the negative perspective is what you need to clean up from your consciousness, simply because it makes you suffer, and every suffering is always connected to the false beliefs we have about ourselves and who we think we are.
The suffering always comes from us identifying with the ego-self, that’s all it is. It is Its perspective you are experiencing, so you’re not seeing and experiencing life through the real you, through the perspective of Truth.
The suffering comes from you believing something that is not true in Reality.
Once you wake up from the small self, the suffering is gone. The ‘negative’ situations might still be there, but the suffering is not.
So in this case, if you get triggered by your thoughts (if they make you feel scared or worried etc), then you have to do something about it rather than just watching them.
Just watching the thoughts and observing them won’t do much good if you want to evolve.
At some point you have to decide to take charge of whatever it is that is going on ‘up there’ that makes you suffer.
If watching your thoughts and just observing them makes you happy and doesn’t bother you at all, then by all means continue doing that, but if they make you suffer, then do something about that too.
Always choose freedom.
Remember that this is your one and only life (that you know of), so make sure it’s a life you enjoy.
Don’t let your thoughts scare you or make you miserable.
The next time something ‘negative’ happens, instead of thinking you created the situation, ask yourself what it is there to teach you, or what the higher purpose of the happening might be, and that will be way more empowering for you (than blaming yourself for it).
But it’s just not what we think and what are thoughts are and being aware of them and so on that determines the direction of our life and the law of attraction.
Beliefs are a huge aspect in all this too, and many other things like your sense of worthiness, your mindset, self-belief, internal dialogue, your energy (vibrational alignment), and many other things.
It’s what truly is in your heart that the universe responds to, meaning; what you really believe and feel inside, and that’s more complex and deep than merely having to do with your thoughts and surface level thinking.
Lastly you wrote;
“.. when you want something too much, by the law of attraction supposedly you actually push it away as you are focusing on not having it!”
This is also true.
When you let go and deatch, that’s when things come to you, and this too has to do with your state of consciousness and energy.
If you live in a state of lack consciousness, you will attract and experience lack (lack of joy, lack of money, lack of peace etc), but I you have done the inner work on releasing false beliefs and so on that created the lack consciousness to begin with, then you will attract abundance instead (abundance of all the good stuff of life, both internal and material).
— Because now you have cleaned up the stuff ‘up there’ that is not in alignment with the Truth of who you really are.
Here’s an article that will be helpful to you:
A person who already feel whole and complete does not have to struggle to ‘get’ things, they attract the things to them instead.
That’s when you manifest and materialize things much more effortlessly and easily too, because the ‘need’ for whatever it is that you ‘want’, is gone.
— Because you already ‘have it’, in consciousness.
So you feel happy and fulfilled Now, which is another key to manifesting.
When you’re perfectly happy and you feel whole and complete without whatever it may be that you want and you’re totally relaxed about it (you have an inner Knowing that it’s already yours), – that’s when it can come to you.
And this too is a process (because it does include taking action, sometimes massive action and/or intense inner work for a long period of time), but once you ‘get’ it, you get it, and from then on it’s easy because now you have embodied the things you wanted energetically, you have ‘become’ it/them, and you have entered a whole new energy flow, so things manifest more easily for you.
It has to do with your alignment;
If you are aligned with the ego/small self, then you will manifest lack, fear, and limitations, while when you’re aligned with Truth, then you manifest that which is in alignment with That, which is abundance, success, happiness, love, etc.
When you try to manifest from the place of the small self, you struggle, but when you create from your Soul, then you’re not doing it alone, then you have the whole universe backing you up, helping you achieve whatever it is that you want to achieve in your life.
It’s another paradox, that by giving up your will to the Divine will, you actually end up manifesting your will, but without the struggle of trying to force it with your small, limited ego self.
