There’s no question that John Assaraf is a modern-day Law of Attraction expert, with a great knack for breaking down the science behind why and how it works. Watch this five-minute how to where John takes us through a creative visualization process that will take your vision board to a much deeper level. When you can start to do creative visualization like this regularly, you begin to create a neurological roadmap—new patterns in your brain which match up your frequency with what it is you want to manifest. The clues will be set before you. Take a coffee break and watch–
It may seem like we just coincidentally stumble upon insights or with sheer luck run into a great contact, but it’s the reticular activation system of your brain (RAS) that actually makes you more attuned to conversations or news or memories or people that bring you solutions and open up possibilities to bring you to your desired destination. The magic of visualization is actually the work of the RAS! It IS making your dreams come true. How? There is scientific proof that indicates that when you visualize and focus on the outcome you desire, what you are doing is activating the powerful subconscious reticular activation system in your brain. The RAS acts like a 24/7 super-sleuth, monitoring all the input your senses provide, searching your memory, and mustering your imagination to connect the dots and bring together the picture you are focused on.
Master sorter, filer, and alerter
The RAS enhances your non-conscious mind’s ability to sift through the 400 billion bits of information it is taking in every second and find and hold onto the valuable insights you need to make the best connections among those insights to produce the results desired–just like the Internet’s search engines. Have you experienced the phenomenon of suddenly seeing many of the very car—same make and model—that you just decided you may want to buy? You drive 50 miles every day and you swear you’ve never seen one of these great sports cars but all of a sudden they’re everywhere! The truth is you just didn’t notice them before. They’ve been all over the road since they’ve been available, but your RAS didn’t bring that information to your conscious awareness until you imprinted the message that you were going to get that car.
Fact or fiction? Does it matter?
The RAS does not distinguish between real life and the imagined. It trusts whatever message you give it. If you focus on the reality of your undesirable financial situation or overweight body your RAS will keep sending you only the information to keep you in that space. So instead, photoshop your face onto the image of your dream figure and focus on that for a while each day. You’ll be amazed at how you’ll begin to notice opportunities that not only are going to get you that figure or that better financial picture, but you will fall into it naturally.
Keep it positive!
Successful sports players use visualization and affirmations all the time to see themselves scoring the goal or taking the prize. Napoleon Hill said that we can achieve any realistic goal if we stay focused on that specific thing and avoid any negativity about it. And he cautioned, if we think that we can’t achieve a goal, our subconscious will help us NOT achieve it. Don’t use the word “don’t” or think in terms of “not.” Instead, restate your desired reality in the positive. If you repeat “I am not poor,” your subconscious only hears “I am poor.” This is another reason why there is so much emphasis on staying positive. As you focus on a photo representing your financial abundance, say “I am wealthy” instead. Positive affirmations can powerfully reinforce your visualization, rewire your brain and get you to your goals.
Did you know that there are seven natural laws of the universe? The Law of Attraction is certainly our favorite, but it isn’t the only law at work in our life, determining the path we are taking. Like it or not, all of the laws are in effect whether we are aware of them or not. Let’s get to know each of them and take them into consideration when trying to effect change and betterment.
The Law of Attraction and Vibration. Everything is vibrating energy on a frequency. Vibrations of the same frequency resonate with each other, so like attracts like, including your thoughts, because they, too, are energy. Consistently focusing on a particular thought or idea attracts its match. Get out your vision board!
The Law of Relativity. A perceived impact or value of an event or circumstance is what it is only in relation to something else. This is why we often say, “well, at least….” or “it could’ve been worse.” Getting relative scale will help keep you in a more positive vibration, which is where the abundance is.
The Law of Cause and Effect. For every action, there is a reaction. Every outcome has a cause, and your thoughts are the cause of the effect or situation you are in. So it’s true, be careful what you wish for—you will get it. Check yourself, your thoughts, and your limiting beliefs. They are the source of your experiences.
The Law of Polarity. Everything has an equal and exact opposite. Always remember that every seemingly negative situation or challenge as within it a positive opportunity. Look for the good in all situations. Not only will it help you face challenges, it will get you more quickly into positive-vibration mode.
The Law of Rhythm. Everything in the universe has a natural cycle of ebbing and flowing, expanding and contracting. The tides go in and out and day turns to night. Through good times and bad, the key to success is to learn to “go with the flow” and not fight the undertow. People waste too much energy resisting the rhythms of life. You know the saying: If life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
The Law of Gestation. All things in the universe have a gestation period; they take time to manifest. Seeds planted resonate with the elements to grow into trees. Ideas are like seeds that require the right thoughts, actions, and vibration to grow into the desired manifestation of that idea, and it’s imperative to allow the right amount of time to pass so that idea can gestate. Be confident that your goals will become reality when the time is right—don’t dig them up too soon!
The Law of Transmutation. Energy moves in and out of physical form and from one vibration to another. It also moves from the nonphysical to the physical. We love John Assarf’s example in Having It All: The various energies of the sun’s rays shine on a tomato plant, which uses those energies to grow a tomato by making molecules. Energy stored in the molecules are passed on to you when you eat the tomato and you convert that metabolic energy into kinetic energy when you ride a bike or take a walk. The energy is never created nor destroyed, and nothing is constant. Assaraf says that your thoughts are the most potent form of energy there is, because they have the potential to transmute from the nonphysical to the physical all the time! Focus the energy of your thoughts into actions and into creating the physical manifestation of that energy.
When you begin to dig a little deeper into all seven of the natural laws of the universe, you’ll see how they all work together to create the forces you experience due to the Law of Attraction. Consider them all when creating your vision board so that your visualization is more impactful.
Visualization, focus, mindfulness, attention. These are the buzzwords you have come to hear about the Law of Attraction and how to manifest all those wonderful things you hope to have in your life. You want it to work, you’ve heard it works, yet you’ve had to smile through your friends and family telling you to stop wasting your time on that “hocus pocus.” But perhaps you’ve caught yourself having doubts and pushing through to keep the faith that the magic will happen for you.
HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS! The Law of Attraction is not hocus pocus. There is actual science that proves that your focused attention on what it is you want will bring you to the desired outcome. The fact is that what you are doing when you are focusing on the outcome is actually affecting your brain. That’s right, physically affecting neural pathways and connections. And how does THIS help bring on the magic?
All the answers, right paths, seeming coincidences, and valuable information you need to manifest your goals are all out there to be had. What you are doing by working on your brain’s neural plasticity is enhancing your mind’s ability to find those valuable insights, overhear the right conversations, and open up the possibilities to bring you to your ultimate destination.
