Experiencing Other People’s Broadcasts

“If you are idly thinking of other people, you draw in whatever feeling they have or whatever level of thought they carry at that time.  If they are in pain, you draw it in.  That is why it is important when you think of other people to send them love, for when you are sending love or thinking of them with loving feelings you cannot pick up their broadcast.  If you notice people coming into your mind, radiate love to them and then let go of any thoughts of them.  Do not dwell on their situation or what is happening in their lives; do not make their reality your own.”  Personal Power through Awareness, by Sanaya Roman

If we want to experience only good feelings when we think of others, we need to be in a loving frame of mind/heart. We live in an open universe; actually nothing is kept secret from our subconscious minds. When others are in a bad place, and we think of them, we will draw their feelings to ourselves. This is the unsettling truth.

We sometimes wonder why we become uneasy in our thoughts about another. We are drawing in their pain with the law of attraction. Send a loving thought in their direction, and we will bless them and be, once again, in peace ourselves.


Our Evolutionary Path

“Realize that you draw other people into your life to play out certain roles with you that will help you evolve.  Let go of any anger or blame you have toward them.”  Personal Power through Awareness, by Sanaya Roman

When we draw other people toward us, we are using the law of attraction.  The enemies we develop in life may just be playing out a script that we helped write.  There is much “insanity” in the world that we don’t recognize as being mentally ill.  It is often this that makes for all the anger and blame we encounter.

We are on an evolutionary pathway, always seeking to improve the record we have made of our various lives.  This karmic record has much negativism in it, but when we implore God for mercy, then the law of grace enters in.  We no longer have to meet an eye with an eye, a tooth with a tooth.  God’s grace saves us all.

Discover how to live better by drawing to ourselves the solution as well as the problem, the problem being people that push our buttons.

There is a way out, and turning to the positive helps to find that way out.  We then attract the good things that we recognize as God’s blessings.  His grace sustains us through thick and thin; we are saved by His grace from fates that give us grief.

Sending Out Vibes

“Another person cannot hurt you unless you are hurting yourself.  You cannot be betrayed, undervalued, or unloved unless you are doing it to yourself by not valuing and loving yourself.”  Personal Power through Awareness, by Sanaya Roman

This quotation stands behind the law of attraction because of our own focus.  We are indeed sending out vibes of negativity that attract similar negativity from our brothers and sisters in this world.

The obvious solution is to develop a better self-image–to love ourselves, as the New Testament encourages.  But remember that the New Testament says to love others as we love ourselves, and if we develop good habits, we will do just that.

If our focus continues to be on what is wrong with our lives, we will continue to attract that which hurts.  

When we raise our sights to a better place, then we change everything.

Do so today.  Practice doing so.

Belief and the Spiritual

“. . .[A} law which is stated succinctly in the dynamic and creative teachings of Jesus Christ: ‘If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.’ (Mark 9:23).  As you train your mind to believe, defeat tendencies are reversed, and everything tends to move out of the area of the impossible into that of the possible.  Stay Alive All Your Life, by Norman Vincent Peale

We need to let go of doubt and misgivings about the sad state of the world.  As stated 2,000 years ago, our belief is what will create a change.  This is the great secret.  When enough of us want peace, then peace in all its glory will descend upon us.

Spirituality works.  It is our own doubt, fueled by pessimism, that keeps the good things of life from descending upon us.

We can endure anything with the right attitude.  And we draw to ourselves the best things of life when we sustain faith in the ultimate working out of all things to the good.

Joy, Excitement, Anticipation

“The more you can believe you will have something, get excited, picture it in your mind, use your emotions of joy, excitement, and anticipation, the more quickly it will come.  However, remember that emotions of fear and doubt also create what they focus on, because you are thinking of them over and over.  When you fear something, you are thinking of what you do not want to happen, and it fills up a box labeled ‘What I do not want to happen,’ and sure enough, that box becomes full and then becomes reality.”  Personal Power through Awareness, by Sanaya Roman

When we get excited about something, we are responding with passion, and we are sure to want that which prompts our excitement. We rev up our emotions, and the law of attraction responds to our heightened mood.

Turn aside from worry and fear, something that is easy to do if we distract ourselves. Those things that we fret about, we are asking for–though we don’t see it that way. Focus is the reason that these negatives can spring up in our lives. What we focus upon with passion is what we will attract.

Sanaya says that our desire will manifest “more quickly” if we add joy, excitement, and anticipation to our thoughts. These emotions emphasize the thoughts, making it obvious that our desire is very great.

So respond with passion to our heart’s desire. If we see it in our heart, then we are seeing it in the core of our being. And the passion signals depth, even unto our experience of God.

Our Soul and Faith and the Law of Attraction

“This, of course, does not mean you will get everything you want.  When you live on a faith basis your desire will be only for that which you can ask in God’s name.  But whatever you should have, whatever is good for you will be granted.  There is no limit to what God will give to those who practice His laws.”  Stay Alive All Your Life, by Norman Vincent Peale

The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne and friends, seems to say that the law of attraction is automatic, that the universe has no choice but to grant your plea for something you want, if you want it strongly enough.  I see a contradiction in this interpretation of what Rhonda has said, an interpretation that makes many people give up on the law of attraction because nothing happens.  I think “want strongly enough” must include “want deeply enough,” and I believe that this “deeply” is our very soul, joined to God in faith, speaking to us from the depths.

I believe it is our soul that makes the decisions about what we will get in this life.  If we superficially pray for something, nothing is going to happen, even if belief in that desire seems very strong.  It is the depth of the desire, drawing on the soul’s greater knowledge, that provides the drawing power.

I think our soul can veto our superficial wants.  If we delve deeply within, we will come to know our soul in a way that has been veiled previously.

Then I think the law of attraction faithfully attracts.  Our soul, joined to God in faith, is in this with us. 

To Believe without Doubt

“Asked to explain these accomplishments the father declares, ‘I simply learned to believe.  I kept on believing at all times even when everything seemed most difficult.’  And he added, ‘I also got busy and worked instead of wasting time and energy in complaining and feeling sorry for myself.”  Stay Alive All Your Life, by Norman Vincent Peale

Believing is VERY important.  Our certainty at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the only thing—the ONLY thing—that guarantees that we will succeed. 

This means that when something is really wrong for us, we know it—and we don’t “believe.”  This is self-protection.  And right and good.

Go inside and ask if this tempting thing is really good for us.  We can fool ourselves, but not for long—not when we really consult an inner knowing that we all have.  This inner knowing is the Holy Spirit speaking.  Or, if we are more secular, we can call this inner knowing our intuition.

We know.  When we fully believe, no doubt intervenes.  And the thing we desire manifests.


Emotion & the Law of Attraction

“The more you can believe you will have something, get excited, picture it in your mind, use your emotions of joy, excitement, and anticipation, the more quickly it will come.  However, remember that emotions of fear and doubt also create what they focus on, because you are thinking of them over and over.  When you fear something, you are thinking of what you do not want to happen, and it fills up a box labeled ‘What I do not want to happen,’ and sure enough, that box becomes full and then becomes reality.”  Personal Power through Awareness, by Sanaya Roman

Emotion is a drawing card for the law of attraction.  But negative emotion draws, too, and so Sanaya has for us here a stern warning.  If we can get busy the next time some negativity comes into our minds, then we will stay positive and bring only good things to ourselves.

Focus on what you want.  Don’t think a moment about what you don’t want.

Of course, this is not always easy.  Especially when we worry, which tends to be obsessive.  All of that focus on something bad is a real problem for many of us.

Choose to change your thought.  Move off the obsessive worry.  Dwell on what makes us happy.

And soon we will have many more things to make us happy.

If We Look Down in the Mud. . .

“If your eyes are looking down in the mud and you feel a sense of failure, you will create defeat for yourself.  Optimistic visualization combined with prayer and faith will inevitably actualize achievement.”  The Power of Positive Thinking, by Norman Vincent Peale

I believe that we need to employ all parts of ourselves if we are to effectively utilize the law of attraction. And our innermost being is what Norman is talking about here. Our God dwells within, and when we turn inside, deep inside, we touch His coattails. We develop a certainty that what we are wanting, if tested out as true and good, is there waiting for us. God does not hold back when we prepare ourselves to accept. But we need to both believe and receive, which is ultimate acceptance.

If we doubt ourselves–looking “down in the mud”–we won’t reach out heart’s desire. Not because God is a miser, but because we are acting as misers to ourselves. Doubt kills the dream.

Faith enhances our wishes, faith in the benevolent Power of the universe. When we listen with all our being to what dwells within, we have that which we ask.


Image It!

“What accounted for that packed house?  The imaging formula is the answer.  A goal, a purpose, lots of prayer, planning, thinking, enthusiasm, organization, and always intense, continuous imaging.  This overcame every adverse condition, including one of the worst rainstorms I have ever experienced.

“ ‘The hall is full.’  Life is full, also, and always will be if you so image it and forever keep God in it.”  Positive Imaging, by Norman Vincent Peale

This quotation from the preacher and writer Norman Vincent Peale is a snippet from an anecdote about a special service for which a special, larger, hall had been rented. The night of Norman’s presentation was a night of pouring rain. But his church member and advocate had just known that many people would attend.

Norman elsewhere counsels what makes for a happy life, and “struggle” is one of his choices toward happiness. Certainly he and his church member faced an uphill battle to provide a service in a large hall on a rainy night. But their enthusiasm caused them to image a full hall, and that is exactly what transpired. When struggle rears its head, enthusiasm often carried the day.

Norman is a preacher, and he believes in prayer and keeping God in our lives. Not that God answers every prayer with an affirmative, but that we increase the odds of an affirmative experience by never losing heart. We attract what we focus on.

And focusing on a full hall on a dreary night worked wonders for Norman and his church friend.

It can do the same for us.
