The Law of Attraction: What Is Split Energy?
When it comes to deliberate creation, what is split energy?
Split energy is something to be mindful of when consciously applying the Law of Attraction.This phenomenon occurs when you are focusing on two sides of the manifestation coin simultaneously. In other words, split energy occurs when you toggle back and forth between focusing on the HAVING of what you want and the ABSENCE of what you want.
This is super common, and explains why so many people experience getting closer to a goal, but then falling short of fully manifesting it.
Here are some common examples of split energy:
- Visualizing having a large sum of money (having), but grumbling about not having enough money (absence).
- Wanting to find a partner to be close to (having), but only pursuing people who live in another country or continent (absence).
- Making gains at work towards your promotion (having), but questioning whether you have what it takes to really get the job (absence).
- Making a commitment to yourself take care of your health (having), but giving in to habits and temptations you believe will sabotage your health (absence).
As you can see, split energy is very common, and is at the root for all kinds of failed resolutions and abandoned goals. Split energy causes the phenomenon of “one step forward, two steps back” so many struggle with.
After toggling back and forth between having and absence, many people often give up on their dreams. It can be frustrating to find yourself at a stand still.
So, what do you do when you find your energy split?
The real trick here I’ve found is to make distraction a regular habit. In other words, when feelings of doubt, irritation or upset pop up, avoid feeding into them!
With the Law of Attraction, what we focus on expands. So, when we allow our thoughts to dwell on absence, the presence of absence becomes greater and greater in our lives.

In order to achieve a goal, we must create more momentum toward having while lessening the momentum of absence. The easiest way to go about that is to have some methods of distraction in your back pocket. Distraction is excellent for lessening feelings of absence or the desire to act out of absence.
When you feel doubt, or anxiety, or you sense you are on the verge of sabotaging your positive momentum, STOP! Take a deep breath, and redirect your energy.
Immediately put down whatever you are doing and start something new. Turn on the radio, change the topic of conversation or get up and move to another location.
Interrupting the focus on absence will keep it from growing, and allow it to dwindle out of the picture.
The trick here, however, is to do this religiously. Each and every time lack pops up, shut it down with distraction. Understand at first this may be a little difficult, but with practice it will become a highly beneficial habit.
Remember, when it comes to split energy, the only reason why it continues to exist is because we continue to feed the focus on lack. Stop the focus dead in its tracks and it will lose its power over you.
