Welcome to part two of my series documenting my journey with the “Law of Attraction” from the standpoint of someone who has struggled with anxiety disorder.
In my last blog post I mentioned how anxiety, depression and perfectionism seemed to have created success blocks in certain areas of my life and no matter how hard I worked, or whatever I tried, things pretty much stayed the same. I also shared how my results so far in applying the Law of Attraction have been mixed.
I believe this is because there are some things missing from most people’s understanding of the law of attraction. These are the flaws in people’s beliefs pertaining to this Universal law:
1. The belief that people have the ability to always think positively. That is impossible to do, especially for anxiety sufferers.
2. The belief that conscious willpower and self-discipline are sufficient to maintain a high emotional frequency.
3. The belief that we can align with Divine Intelligence without the most powerful part of our minds – the subconscious.
Albert Einstein said: “You can’t solve a problem using the same mind that caused the problem in the first place.”
For people with anxiety, their issues and limitations are deeply embedded in the subconscious mind, as are every one elses.
There are four brain wave states that a person can experience (Beta, Alpha, theta and Delta). Applying the “Law of Attraction” requires that we learn to surrender the conscious (Beta) mind to the subconscious (theta) mind. Surrender means giving up worry and stress of trying to fix your problems with the least effective part of your mind – your conscious mind.
Remember the Beta mind is for logical analyzing. It doesn’t have a grasp for how to solve high-end problems. We surrender by admitting that our Beta mind doesn’t know the answers, but that there is a greater part of us that does. When we go into a Theta brain wave state the filter between our conscious and subconscious minds is dropped allowing the conscious mind to give directions to the subconscious.
Our Theta mind is greater intelligence – it is unlimited. It has access to every piece of information in the Universe instantaneously. It is our bandwidth to Divine Intelligence and Divine Inspiration! Einstein came out of a Theta state with E=mc2.
Understanding this helps our conscious mind relax and let go rather than feeling anxious and worried. Surrendering to our greater intelligence allows us to bring in knowledge and information, by commanding our subconscious while in a Theta state. This is how we reprogram our subconscious mind and eliminate limiting beliefs.
The only thing you have to do is release the “ego” of thinking your conscious mind has the answers.
This is certainly a very different approach than what we’ve been taught about “just being positive” or “not allowing negative thoughts.” It’s impossible to just “be positive!” What we really need to do is embrace what we’re thinking right now, and let our thinking reveal to us what we want to change.
I believe this is why the “Law of Attraction” worked for me in areas, and not in others. It worked in areas where my subconscious blueprint was in alignment with my conscious beliefs, but it didn’t work in areas where there was conflict between the two minds. These were the areas where I had the most anxiety.
Surrendering to a Theta brain-wave state means that you can speak directly to the subconscious mind. You can command it using a 3 step formula. In part three of this series I will share the 3 step formula for “how to command the subconscious mind.”
