The LOA: What the Pessimists & Naysayers Just Don’t Understand!

Well, here’s one for the pessimists and naysayers of the Law of Attraction. I doubt they’ll be listening though! 🙂

This is one of my strongest arguments against the pessimistic perspective. I hope you like it!

    It’s imperative to re-focus on what’s working and to do it every day from a place of gratitude, agreed. But overall the message in this video is just too facile and black and white for me and unfortunately seems to only represent a prosperous 1st world perspective. There’s a whole world out there, and there’s something a little cold about the idea of well, I created my reality, you create yours. When the government of a 3rd world country keeps its own people in poverty, or if that poverty is artificially created by a 1st world government via an exorbitant interest rate it charges on loans, those people don’t have the proper nutrition to think clearly, let alone think positively.

    And to take a current issue, looking at climate change square in the face isn’t being negatively focused on a problem, it’s an attempt to awaken people to how unbelievably urgent it is to curb pollutants like fossil fuels and fracking. As much as I genuinely appreciate and use the LOA teachings of, say, Abraham-Hicks, I’m not slavishly devoted to them or anyone else. To my dismay, though they really get a lot right, Esther Hicks while channeling Abraham on one video suggested the Earth is just going through a normal transition into higher temperatures, that it has done so in the past and will simply repair itself. A quick fact check on NASA’s website from the world’s most educated scientific community would prove otherwise.

    Hi JD

    Thanks for sharing your feedback, which I agree you are totally entitled to and I am sure you have plenty of evidence to back up.

    I personally believe in the concept of unlimited potential realities, where all possibilities are possible simultaneously. Therefore, from my perspective it is possible to live in a world with destruction and chaos, but it is also possible to live in a world that is predominantly loving and kind. In order to get to the more loving, kind world, we have to turn our attention away from the destruction and chaos and toward what we appreciate and love.

    This can seem cold and uncaring to many people. However, in a universe of infinite potential, to me it doesn’t matter. In a universe with infinite potential there WILL be chaos and destruction, but I get to choose whether or not to experience it in my own reality. In order to experience a reality with more love I must turn away from that which doesn’t resonate. It’s the only option, as I cannot eliminate what I do not like by focusing on it.

    I’ve found that the concept of quantum mechanics has brought this idea in alignment for me.

    Thanks again for your thought provoking comment! Have a great weekend.

    XO, Andrea

    Yup. You or any of us totally get to choose what to include in our own reality. If you keep your focus on love and kindness, it’ll start showing up more frequently and create openings for solutions. I believe that’s true and I don’t think we’re disagreeing. However the way your work sometimes reads to me is that your only concern is how you feel within your own little sphere, and really in order to survive, I’d ask you to consider that we must think of all of humanity as one family and beyond our own comfort. If in the realm of infinite possibilities there’s a version of reality where, upon realizing the damage we’re doing to the Earth, we stop poisoning it and industry and individual practices become sustainable because they’re infused with good will, that’s an incredibly important vision to maintain. Perhaps I’m misinterpreting, but what I’m hearing is that looking at (focusing on) the realities of accelerated climate change, as an example, doesn’t fit into the reality you want to experience, and that grants permission to ignore it while sea levels rise and entire species lose their habit and face extinction. Forgive me, but that is intellectually lazy, dangerous and motivated by your comfort level around what “reality” to choose to inhabit. A teacher of mine once said ,”Nothing happens by itself. Man must act to implement his will.” Thank you for engaging in this commentary.

    Hi JD-yes I see your point.

    If I believed there were only one reality and one Earth, than yes I would find my comment lazy as well:)

    I believe there are multiple versions of Earth/reality and that we get to “hop” into whichever one we want. We can decide to “live” on the Earth where suffering is predominant or we can choose to focus ourselves into being on a version of Earth with greater prosperity for all inhabitants.

    I am not of the belief that it is possible to rid a “suffering version” of Earth from it’s suffering. Therefore, those who are suffering on that version of Earth will suffer, regardless of how I choose to participate. However, I can move myself into alignment with a version of Earth where the very same people inhabiting it have a better life experience.

    It’s all very philosophical, and who’s to know if I am “right.” This is just how I have come to understand it. XO
