“Limiting Beliefs” And How To Overcome Them:
Building self esteem and overcoming limiting beliefs is at the heart of all real success. More than ever, folks are looking to answer the question “How do I identify and overcome limiting beliefs? Limiting beliefs are those beliefs that are holding us back from achieving our goals and our potential, often at a subconscious level. Here’s the thing about limiting beliefs: it can be incredibly difficult to identify what they are and move through them towards our full potential.
Limiting beliefs are defined as beliefs about the world or your own self that are holding you back from achieving your potential.
For example, perhaps you have always wanted to start a business. For years, you have played around with the idea of creating a Podcast or YouTube channel but you cannot find the confidence inside yourself to get started. What is at the root of this poor self esteem? Oftentimes, limiting beliefs such as “I’m not good enough”… “I don’t deserve success”… “I will not figure out how to succeed”… and so on.
Limiting beliefs are poisonous. They are holding back the next level of human evolution. If you have read Charles Eisenstein’s book “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible” then you have probably heard of the idea of Consensus Reality. This theory details the idea that the world is only the way that it is because our species collectively believes that this is how things need to be. In other words, war and famine only continue to exist because our species collectively believes that this must continue. In a sense, we have limiting beliefs at the collective level. Following this train of thought: it is our moral and ethical obligation to overcome our own personal limiting beliefs so that we can contribute to the collective mind and move the human species into a more beautiful future (how’s that for a bold statement?)
Before we dive into HOW to overcome limiting beliefs, let’s discuss WHY it is so important.
Limiting Beliefs Hold Back Innovation.
Overcoming limiting beliefs is a popular topic in the entrepreneur community. Whether you are listening to Tony Robbins or Grant : , there are hundreds of examples of accomplished entrepreneurs who discuss the importance of improving mindset, building self esteem, and imaging greater possibilities. This concept is at the heart of Napoleon Hill’s landmark book “Think And Grow Rich”.
Why is it so important for entrepreneurs to overcome limiting beliefs? If we examine the way world economy functions, we begin to understand how integral entrepreneurs become to moving the species into a healthier future. Why is this the case? Imagine if Bill Gates had never created Microsoft because he did not believe it was possible. Think about how our daily lives would be if Henry Ford did not invent automobiles because he did not believe himself worthy of success. What about if Elon Musk never dared to create SpaceX because he thought it would never work?
Entrepreneurs are driving forward the evolution of the species. When it comes to creating innovating ideas and introducing these to the world, entrepreneurs require a ton of belief in themselves, their idea, and the world itself. All great innovations begin as a powerful belief in an entrepreneur’s own ability and the world in general.
Evan Carmichael is a driving force in helping entrepreneurs believe in themselves.
Evan hosts one of the top YouTube channels in the entrepreneur community to help aspiring and accomplished entrepreneurs create a healthier mindset and increase their belief.
If the human species is going to thrive and survive, we are going to need powerful entrepreneurs who maintain a powerful sense of belief in themselves, their ideas, and the world in which they live.
Evan helps people overcome limiting beliefs, create a stronger mind, and achieve their potential.
On this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien podcast, Evan and I talk about the power of overcoming limiting beliefs and the importance of this mission. There are millions of people in the world who have potential to create massive change and our modern world needs these individuals more than ever before.
Overcoming limiting beliefs is an essential key to the formula of how we can move our species into something healthier, stronger, and more capable of change. Enjoy this episode and do something today to change your beliefs about yourself, your world, and your own potential.
Entrepreneurship Builds Self Esteem:
Overcoming limiting beliefs is an essential part of becoming an entrepreneur. Indeed, oftentimes it is a powerful exercise to just get started! Even if your YouTube channel or Podcast goes nowhere, the act of getting started and creatively expressing yourself is an incredible way to begin identifying and overcoming limiting beliefs that hold back your life in general. However, nowadays, there are more than enough ways to ensure that your project succeeds and truly makes the impact in the world you know is possible.
On this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast, I’m talking to the great and powerful Miles Beckler. Miles and his wife Melanie are the masterminds behind Ask-Angels, one of the top brands in the spirituality niche. Miles also hosts his own YouTube channel and website where he helps entrepreneurs learn digital marketing skills in order to achieve financial freedom through a lifestyle business.
Building a business can be an intense process of spiritual growth. On this show, we talk about the process of overcoming limiting beliefs through the journey of creating multiple online businesses that Miles has experienced. We also are going to hear about Miles’ spiritual growth and his own personal process of destroying limiting beliefs as he marches towards ever larger goals.
Want to learn from Miles Beckler more personally? Miles just launched a mastermind group. This is an online membership where I am personally receiving massive value from the content and coaching.

Limiting Beliefs Undermine Your Goals
Why should you worry so much about overcoming limiting beliefs?
Limiting beliefs hold us back subconsciously from reaching our goals.
Have you ever set a goal and then not succeeded? Have you ever failed to keep a New Years Resolution? Have you ever spent time with a coach, counselor, or significant other and really dialed in some goals, only to fail yet again? Why does this keep happening?
From what I have experienced, limiting beliefs are the chief enemy of our goals. Oftentimes, when we are not achieving our goals, it can be confusing to determine why this might be the case. It is difficult to see how we can continue to fail and keep ourselves in a negative cycle of repeating the same patterns over and over. When this is the case, we forget to see how our limiting beliefs might be at work. We forget that our limiting beliefs about ourselves and the world are sneaky: they hide in plain sight, hidden in “reasons” that sound more logical to our minds.
Have you ever failed a goal related to your health? These are all too common in our world. Why is this the case?
Oftentimes we fail because we lack a certain level of determination. When we set a goal and strive to turn it into reality, we are placing a level of faith and trust in ourselves and in the method. In the case of establishing healthy diet and exercise habits, we are trusting that these methods (whatever they are) will work. We are holding to faith that our efforts that must consistently happen over long periods of time will ultimately yield results. We will not see results overnight. When it comes to building real strength, conditioning, and overall health, we will oftentimes experience an up-and-down cycle inside our heads that pull us around.
Here’s the thing: it can be difficult to stick to this course because there are many distractions in our world. Ultimately, deep in our minds, we probably KNOW that it takes a lot of time, consistency, and effort to see the ultimate result we are looking to achieve. However, it can be easy to get distracted and pulled away from this path because we watch a new video that convinces us we need to try a different workout method, a new “superfood”, a new supplement, etc. etc… Why do we fall for these tricks?
On the other side of the coin, we oftentimes fall off the bandwagon for a few days and then find it difficult to get back on. Why is this the case? We KNOW that there will always be ups-and-downs on the pathway to success. Subconsciously (or even consciously) we are completely aware that the path to ultimate success and fulfillment will not be a straight and linear path. Why do we fail to get back on the bandwagon when the inevitable peaks and valleys make themselves known?
Limiting beliefs. In my experience with improving my life, losing weight, implementing healthy habits, starting businesses, martial arts, and more, I have found that it all comes back to limiting beliefs we hold about ourselves and the world.
These are the poisonous thoughts that burry themselves in our subconscious mind, just below our levels of awareness.
They hide under logical “reasons” that we tell ourselves… Going back to our weight-loss example: when we deviate from our path and pursue some “get-fit-quick” scheme that we secretly KNOW is never going to work, we are doing so because we subconsciously believe that we do not deserve to succeed. We hold a limiting belief in the depths of our mind that says “It is not possible for my plan to work because I am not able to succeed in this direction… Therefore, I should follow this guru’s advice and try this alternate method”… This is how we end up cycles of bouncing between workout plans, diet routines, and more.
Limiting beliefs hide themselves. For example, if you are continuing to fail to start a business that could one day replace your 9-5 job, you might be telling yourself “there isn’t enough time in the day to make this happen”. When you get home from work, you might gauge your energy levels and assess that “I don’t have the energy to do this”. In your mind, this is quite logical, right? If you tire yourself out at night and sleep poorly, you might not be able to perform at peak capacity at your 9-5 job tomorrow. If you lose that job, you could lose everything! Therefore, you logically reason your way into never getting started on that business.
Here’s the kicker though: you are being haunted by some limiting beliefs that keep many folks trapped in lives they hate.
Limiting beliefs like “I’m not good enough to figure it out”… “I am not made like those who succeed”… “Successful people are better than me”… “I cannot figure it out”… “I’m not creative enough to find a way”… All of these are limiting beliefs that steal our happiness and rob us of the experience we could enjoy as humans.
Here’s the truth: to make a real impact on the world and change your life, it takes commitment. It takes a level of trust in yourself and your own abilities. It requires faith in the processes that have given success to others. More than anything, it necessitates that you believe that you can be successful. In order to make a lasting commitment to yourself and your goals, you must believe that you can ultimately succeed, that you deserve success, that you are made like those who succeed, and that your work will pay off down the road.
There is no “get rich quick” or “get fit quick” scheme that actually works… Anyone telling you differently is lying.
Real life changing results require a commitment.
How do you get started changing your limiting beliefs? The first step is identifying what is holding you back. If you have not already, I put together a Free Course on how to identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back. You can get that course by clicking here.
Resolve to not be a slave to your limiting beliefs. You can make a change in your life that will echo through history. Make it so. You owe it to yourself to overcome limiting beliefs and create a better life for yourself, for your family, and for the species.
Law Of Attraction 101 And How To Use It:
Many folks want to know how to apply the law of attraction. They’re left asking “Is the law of attraction real?”
As our species continues to evolve, more people are wondering how to manifest money, attract love, and create the life they visualize. The Law of Attraction is a confusing topic these days due to many “fake gurus” leading folks down paths that just leave them feeling confused and full of doubt. The Law of Attraction has been an extremely powerful force in my own life and I think it can be the same for you as well.
“Does the Law of Attraction Work?” Yes… From my experience it does. However, I encourage you to consult your own experience, your own inner voice, and your own journey when it comes to deciding how the Law of Attraction best works for you. This guide is an accumulation of my experience to help lead you down the right path to making the Law of Attraction work in your life. Let’s dive in!
Is The Law Of Attraction Real?
Is this something to invest time into exploring?
I explore that topic in depth on this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast:
So many folks who do not really understand this complex esoteric principle.
In this video I talk about the Manifestation Pyramid… This is a formula I’m devising to help you implement the Law of Attraction into your life in a way that actually works.
You have to understand that when it comes to the law of attraction, the secret, how to attract money, law of attraction in the bible, and a ton of other topics, you need to become your own authority.
Trust your own intuition.
Trust your own experience.
Do not rely only on the experience of others.
Today, there are so many fake gurus giving advice about the law of attraction. They will convince you that “the secret” to how to attract money (or whatever) is to start a vision board, say some affirmations, and “trust the universe” by investing in their expensive program.
Here’s the challenge: few of these “life coach” folks understand that the law of attraction involves more than affirmations.
As I lay out in this video, there is a formula to the universal law of attraction.
It is more than just creating a vision board. The law of attraction relies on several key points:
This is what has worked in my experience when it comes to the law of attraction.
Let’s go through each of these in detail:
Starting with your Thoughts:
“Law of Attraction Affirmations” And How To Create Them:
Do Affirmations work?
Well, it depends on how you use them…
Here’s the challenge:
So many folks these days are attempting to get spiritually inclined folks to believe that the Law of Attraction works by just creating simple Affirmations that will attract money, manifest love, and create whatever you want in life.
As if just making a vision board and imagining yourself on a Yacht will somehow make that appear in your backyard tomorrow…
Want a deep dive on this topic? Keep on reading.
If you’d rather watch/listen to this information, here’s an episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast where I dive into this particular aspect of the Law of Attraction.
On this episode, I breakdown what I call “Law of Attraction Affirmations” that help you eliminate limiting beliefs without a bunch of hippy bullshit that will just leave you feeling confused:
Here’s the truth about creating affirmations:
They are meant to help you uncover limiting beliefs.
What’s a limiting belief?
It’s some sort of belief that is holding you back, usually at the subconscious level.
For example, maybe you have a limiting belief that you don’t deserve success?
Here’s the thing: you probably are not aware that you have a limiting belief around self-worth.
Limiting beliefs are sneaky like that…
Limiting beliefs are often hidden under some other type of belief that makes a bit more sense to your conscious mind.
“I don’t have time”
“I don’t know how to do XYZ”
“It’s too hard to do XYZ”
“XZY is unrealistic”
Oftentimes, these are just different versions of limiting beliefs that are oftentimes the culprit of our failures in life.
Limiting beliefs like these demons:
“I don’t deserve success”
“I don’t love myself”
“I’m not good enough”
And so on…
Want to learn how to eliminate limiting beliefs?
It all starts with Affirmations.
“Law of Attraction Affirmations” work by helping you to visualize your goals as something that already exists.
Imaging your goals as already achieved does NOT make them appear by magic.
What it does is help you uncover limiting beliefs like the ones I mentioned above.
When you uncover the limiting belief, you are now staring the problem right in the face. You are now more than ready to heal, overcome these limiting beliefs, and move forward towards your goal.
Here’s the thing:
Uncovering limiting beliefs is just the first step.
It’s the foundation of what I call the “Manifestation Pyramid”.
You can learn more about the Manifestation Pyramid by clicking above or listening/watching this video:
It’s a system I’m creating to help you attract money, manifest love, create success, overcome limiting beliefs, and conquer your goals.
When it comes to the Law of Attraction, changing your thoughts is an important part of the process… However, again, it’s the first step.
Here’s how to actually use “Law of Attraction Affirmations” to start manifesting the life you deserve:
First, identify your goal.
Let’s say you want to become a millionaire and achieve financial freedom?
Seem like a lofty goal? Well, maybe that’s your limiting beliefs talking.
To get started towards identifying limiting beliefs, select ten affirmations that are worded as if your goal has already been accomplished.
Here’s ten that might have something to do with becoming a millionaire, attracting money, and achieving financial freedom:
- I am a millionaire.
- I am financially free.
- I create money.
- I attract money.
- I am successful.
- I love myself.
- I achieve my goals.
- I am good enough.
- I deserve success.
- Money comes easily to me.
Now that you have your affirmations created, begin to write them down and speak them aloud as you write… These law of attraction affirmations are effective because they help you to identify your limiting beliefs.
You will notice that with some of these affirmations, you feel confident and great.
You’re thinking “Fuck yeah! I deserve success!”… “YES! I do love myself!”
However, eventually, you will find one or two of these affirmations that cause you to feel uncomfortable.
Maybe your breathing is blocked?… Your heart starts to beat faster?… You feel anxious for no apparent reason… Whatever the physical symptom, you know you’re on the trail of a limiting belief that is preventing you from achieving this goal of attracting money and conquering your goals.
“Why does this make me feel uncomfortable?”
“What is the belief that might be behind why I’m uncomfortable with this affirmation?”
“What memories are coming to mind?”
“What beliefs are being uncovered?”
Maybe you had a negative experience in childhood that integrated this limiting belief into your subconscious mind? This might be what’s holding you back from using the law of attraction to manifest money (or anything you’d like to create).
It is important to integrate changing these limiting beliefs. Changing your limiting beliefs will shift how you FEEL about the world… It will shift your energy into a higher vibration and cause you to begin to attract more of what you are working to create.
The way you feel changes how you are perceived. It shifts how other people view you in the world. This is an important concept because you begin to create a new reality based around the energetic fields you are projecting out into the world. There is research done by the HeartMath Institute that will help you understand this idea better.
Changing how you feel about your reality will inspire you to take action.
Law of attraction affirmations are incredibly important in that respect.
So what is the law of attraction? I’ve found that it’s a state of being.
It is not a specific event that you have “manifested”… It is a new shift in your ability to exist in a heightened state of reality. A greater version of how we experience the world.
A moment in your world when suddenly everything is going right. Your world clicks. You experience a new shift in your belief system and suddenly you’ve unlocked the secrets of the world.
It’s a new paradigm of existence. We are entering into a new era of human evolution that is going to completely revolutionize our world. If you want to learn more about the different ways our species is evolving, here’s a post I made awhile back on that topic. Check it out!
It’s a state of heightened ability and existence wherein you are able to manifest whatever you want through the power of subconscious mind, your own effort, and your own impact on the world.
“The Secret” To The Law Of Attraction: Feeling
Law of Attraction “experts” often leave out a key part of the equation: feeling.
How you feel is crucially important to unlocking the power of subconscious mind. Carol Tuttle says in her book “Remembering Wholeness” that ensuring you feel great every day should be your number one priority. Why is it so important to feel great in order to start manifesting money and unlocking lifes abundance?
The way you feel cultivates what you do. At the top of our Manifestation Pyramid is action. The taking of action towards your goals and what you are looking to manifest into the world is an essential part of the puzzle. If we look at Manifesting as a sort of alchemical formula, the ingredient which ignites the concoction is the taking of action. When we move towards our goals by being productive and staying in a zone of excellence and extreme action-taking, we seem to trigger a reaction in the universe that rewards us with whatever we are looking to manifest.
Want to dive in deep on this topic? Watch this video now:
Furthermore, it is these intangible qualities that seem to pull and manifest our realities in our direction. When we launch into the esoteric teachings, we are told by these “law of attraction books” that our feelings are like magnets. When we avoid something due to fear, we end up manifesting more of what we are working to avoid. When we approach the world from love and trust, we create and receive more love and trust in our environments and in our relationships.
In order to take the right level of action, we must be feeling well enough to do what we must do in order to achieve our goals and create what we are working to manifest into our lives.
How do we start feeling more in line with our “true self”?
Law of attraction affirmations!
Overcoming limiting beliefs!
By combining those two foundational building blocks, we feel better… We begin to feel like anything is possible (because it is) and we make real progress towards our goals. When we actually feel amazing and take purposeful action in the right direction, the universe conspires in our favor to bring about our goals into the physical plane.
There is a magical quality to our feelings. When we feel as if our goals are being accomplished, we often find they are. I believe there is a tangible element to this equation (the taking of action) but also an intangible in that our desires do indeed seem to manifest as if by magic when we are feeling as if they have already been accomplished.
When we feel as if the world is conquered, our goals are achieved, and the world is conspiring in our favor, “the universe” seems to prove that to be true. In order to achieve this state, it is important to have positive thoughts playing in your head and positive beliefs empowering your engine of feeling. What’s a great way to cultivate this level of feeling?
- Law of Attraction Affirmations.
- Going for a Walk.
- Studying successful people to get inspired.
- Inspiring chats with positive and like minded folks.
- Distancing yourself from toxic people and information.
- Never watching the News.
- Surrounding yourself with positive books, people, and ideas.
- Going to a Spa/Sauna.
However, to truly feel amazing, I’ve found that taking action towards our goals does the trick. When we enter that state of momentum and productivity, we feel better. Suddenly, we feel more calm and relaxed. When we take the action from which we have been running, our world shifts. When we stop procrastinating and overcome resistance towards our goals, we REALLY begin to feel good. In this way, taking action and feeling great are linked.
In other words: don’t wait to feel good before taking action towards your goals. Anticipate that the feeling will come once you take the proper amount of action. The two are symbiotic.
Law Of Attraction And Frequency
The law of attraction can be a confusing topic…
In today’s world, there are many fake gurus out there teaching about the law of attraction. Unfortunately, many of these folks are a bit misinformed as to WHY the law of attraction “works”, how it works, and how to best apply it to your life.
The law of attraction is a state of being.
It is a constant state of you. It isn’t something you turn on or off. You are ALWAYS using the law of attraction to shape your world OR be shaped by the world around you. Whether you are a cause or effect in your world is up to you…
On this show, Pasha Moreno Tarantino and I chat about the concept of frequency and how it applies to learning about the law of attraction. What is “frequency”? Well, essentially, we are referring here to the idea that all of reality is vibrating. If we learn more about quantum physics, we begin to think that advancing scientific theory speculates that reality is composed of a sort of wavelength at the basic level. In other words, the most foundation building block of reality seems to be some sort of frequency. When we understand that all of reality is frequency (including you and me), we can begin to wrap our heads around WHY the law of attraction works.
You see, frequency is the rate at which we “vibrate”… when we speak about the principle of vibration, we are discussing the rate at which our selves are vibrating in relation to the world around us. The frequency rate at which we are vibrating is how we ascend or descend between the planes of correspondence.
When we ascend between planes, we gain the ability to affect the plane beneath which we have vibrated or raised our degree of consciousness.
The law of attraction is simply the name for the power that we can access to use our mental power to create our world. It is always in effect. We are always using it. There is a certain responsibility that we realize when this comes into affect! There is so much power at our fingertips when we start to understand just how incredible the creative aspects of our mind really are… This is what is meant by “manifestation”… It is a process of co-creating your reality into whatever lessons your soul is asking to learn and experience. With great power comes great responsibility.
Law of Attraction manifesting often involves the setting of a powerful intention.
When our minds are focused and centered on a clear goal we want to manifest and create, our subconscious mind finds ways to deliver these goals to us as if by magic. How does this work? By going through the process of clearing ourselves of subconscious limiting beliefs and instead setting an intention at the root of our subconscious mind, we “pre-program” ourselves for success.
Do you believe in spiritual guides?
The Law of Attraction often seems to work hand in hand with whatever divine forces might be at work in our world. If you are someone who tends to not believe in these spiritual forces such as Angels or Animal Spirit companions, you might still be able to appreciate the power of connecting with our own intuitive voice to receive “downloads” of sorts that seem to come from some outside collective mind.
How does intention play a role here?
When we create a powerful intention around our goals, we program our subconscious mind to begin attracting the situations and circumstances that will deliver that goal into our lap.
We start to feel more ready, powerful, and confident around our goals and our ability to make them happen. When we start to take action towards those goals from a place of powerful intention, they begin to manifest as if by magic into our worlds.
What does this look like in real life?
Watch this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast with Mike Bledsoe of the Shrugged Collective Podcast Network.
Mike is a coach and Podcaster who helps folks set powerful intentions that help them unlock their full potential and enjoy life. Instead of working under hard conditions and “grinding” through life towards some goal, Mike helps people understand that life is meant to be a fun game rather than a miserable grind. When we set powerful intentions, release our trauma, and act from a place of overwhelming power and ability, our world changes quickly.

How To Manifest A Great Career
The law of attraction has re-entered the cultural spotlight in the modern world. Thousands of people around the world are wondering how to manifest money, love, greater spiritual development, or any number of desires. In fact, more than ever, folks are trying to attract money and create a better career for themselves using the law of attraction. Oftentimes, that is the “draw” of the law of attraction: the potential to allegedly help us earn more money, change careers, get a promotion at work, or any number of material gains.
Does the law of attraction work? When it comes to attracting money, starting a business, or getting promoted at work, law of attraction skeptics are, well, skeptical. Similar the way prayer gets misused in organized religion, the law of attraction is often used as a tool to just ask god (in this case “the universe”) for more money or a better job and then feel disappointed and let down if it does not get delivered.
What is the reality here? Can we learn how to attract money? Does the law of attraction work when it comes to creating more financial abundance in our careers? Susan Scotts joins this episode of Beyond Homo Sapien to discuss how to manifest a great career:
On the above episode, Susan and I chat about how to manifest, how the law of attraction actually works, and how this fits into your life.
As the human species evolves and expands, the bridge between the esoteric and the modern world is forming. Similar to what we saw during the Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, or the Renaissance, these spiritual concepts like the law of attraction are making their way back into the collective consciousness.
The emergence of these esoteric concepts is happening simultaneous to developments in new technology. The two will meet at the top and together evolve our species into a new Golden Age of opportunity, freedom, self-expression, and spiritual awakening.
Learning how to manifest is a valuable skill. As our culture begins to accept more often that the Law of Attraction and similar concepts are real, there is more acceptance around this conversation of figuring out how the Law of Attraction actually works. Nowadays, there is plenty of confusion around how to manifest and it can be a bit overwhelming when trying to figure out how to manifest love, money, or any number of things…
Beyond Homo Sapien seeks to find the truth of what is actually going on here.
The Law of Attraction and similar teachings are observable and seem to happen when a certain formula is applied. However, the real question of WHY these concepts work is important for us to answer. Personally, I believe that the reason the law of attraction works is because we are all a collective mind. Everything that we experience in reality is a collective whole. In other words, you (the reader) and me are the same person. You are me living a different life. If I were to live your life and have your experiences, I would think all the same thoughts, believe all the same beliefs, and be in exactly the position where you find yourself.
This concept is discussed in numerous religions all over the world. Whether in Hinduism, Christianity, or in more esoteric traditions, the common theme of the oneness of our divine souls is congruent across a wide spectrum of belief systems. Is it actually true? Well, if we are looking for an answer to WHY the Law of Attraction seems to work when the above formula is applied successfully, we are left with the idea of our divine oneness and commonly shared collective mind as an answer to the question. Indeed, by applying the law of attraction, we effectively demand from the collective mind a certain response. Effectively we are acknowledging the video game of life for what it appears to be and demanding that it deliver a certain response in accordance with what sort of reality we seek to enjoy and explore.
Law of Attraction ideas are expanding and growing. As we continue to evolve, we will find more clarity around the law of attraction, how it works, and (more importantly) WHY it works… The answer to these questions can lead us towards a better understanding of the spiritual origins of mankind and increase the empathy that we have for one another.
The Law Of Attraction Origins
Where does the Law of Attraction originate?
You see, if the Law of Attraction is real, then it had to begin somewhere and be based in some sort of religious, philosophical, metaphysical, or spiritual teaching, right?
Did the Law of Attraction originate with “The Secret” book/movie?
Not at all. You see, the Law of Attraction actually spawns from whats called “Hermetic Philosophy” or “Hermeticism”.
Hermeticism has actually been demonized by Christian culture. Although you may have never heard of “Hermeticism”, you have probably heard of “The Occult” and other “demonic” practices. Hermetic philosophy is the foundation on which “The Occult” is built.
However, when diving into learning about the history of Hermeticism, you begin to realize that there isn’t too much scary stuff going on. Although you might find a few folks on Reddit posting some crazy imagery or scary looking Tarot card decks, the actual Hermeticism Books themselves are not scary. In fact, they seem to be quite encouraging, inspiring, lovely, and glorifying of “god” rather than a demon worshipping group.
How does the Law of Attraction fit into Hermeticism?
Hermeticism is built on what are called the “7 Hermetic Principles”. Here they are:
- The principle of Mentalism: All is Mind.
- The principle of Correspondance: “As Above So Below”
- The principle of Vibration.
- The principle of Polarity.
- The principle of Rhythm.
- The principle of Cause and Effect.
- The principle of Gender.
What do the “7 Hermetic Principles” have to do with the Law of Attraction?
Quite a lot actually… Although the Law of Attraction is not one of these foundational principles, it is a product of them.
Mastery of these 7 Hermetic Principles is said to result in being able to use the Law of Attraction at will… Effectively, the Law of Attraction is “magic”.
For example, the principle of Vibration states that everything is in motion… Nothing rests. The Universe (or “The All” as expressed in Hermeticism) is constantly vibrating in motion. An individual who is able to elevate or “raise their vibration” is able to effect control over lower plains of vibration. In other words: the “Law of Attraction” is not a tool like a hammer or a saw… It is a state of being. It is a full ability to manipulate your specific world using the power of your own mind.
I’m going to write a more in depth article on the 7 Hermetic Principles soon. However, for now, know that their impact on the world stretches back to Ancient Greece and Egypt. When examining the various ages of mankind from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, Hermeticism is often at the root of the spiritual revolution that accompanies technological advancement. In today’s world, Hermeticism seems to be making its return and having another day in the sun as it throws off the shackles of being labeled “demonic” and finding a way into society under the guise of the “Law of Attraction”.
There’s so many misconceptions about the Law of Attraction…
People want to know:
How do I attract money?
How do I manifest love?
How do I create the life that I want through the Law of Attraction?
Let me break this down in a concept called the “Manifestation Pyramid”.
This is the formula that has helped me to overcome mental illness, create a healthier lifestyle, overcome limiting beliefs, and earn more money from my online business.
I found that spiritual healing occurs when you integrate some daily affirmations that help to uncover the limiting beliefs of your subconscious mind. When you integrate positive affirmations, it becomes more people to attract money, manifest love, and create a better life for yourself.
However, there’s more to the puzzle…
The law of cause and effect is at play. To take advantage of the law of attraction and find the secret of success, you need to integrate four basic pillars of your formula. Let’s dive in!
The Law of Cause and Effect is an esoteric principle that dates back to Ancient Egypt… It is at the root of many secret teachings that have been passed down throughout the ages.
Understanding this universal law and how it can effect your life is absolutely gigantic.
This can change everything if you allow it to take hold…
It’s already affecting your life, even if you’re unaware!
The video above explains more.
Essentially, think of the universe in this concept:
No matter how you spin things, there are two forces at works.
For example, let’s examine an ocean.
The wind is causing an effect of waves!
These waves effect you on the beach as you build a sand castle 🙂
Make sense? It’s actually pretty easy to understand… Here’s where it gets more complex: In your life, you are either a cause or an effect.
You are either making an impact in your world or others are having their impact on you.
In order to truly manifest the life you want, attract money, manifest love, create change for yourself and your family, you will need to master the law of cause and effect.
It is at the root of success.
Willpower is the force of nature that you will begin to harness when you make the law of Cause and Effect work in your favor.
