Increasing your Personal Magnetism
How to make the Law of Attraction Work for You
Part 1. / Part 2. / Part 3.
Note: the Law of Attraction is always working for you, but you might wonder why then is it not bringing to you what you want? Why does it seem to not be working for you even though it must be? Here I will assert that it most definitely IS always functioning, but according to our command. Here we will discover our true power in life, the conscious command, as well as the origins and power of the unconscious command and how we can correct it with The Power of the Positive Command. The irritating thought of absence is a trick to awaken our conscious participation.
PART 2. WHY DO WE ACCEPT AND REJECT?
The Power of the Unconscious Mind
The unconscious mind is the repository of the logics (algorithms) that dictate our basic operating system - the beliefs, impressions and conclusions drawn from our life's experiences. The unconscious mind is full of unconscious (because they are already accepted as true and do not need to be called up consciously or reinvestigated) commands - our conclusions about life and the way it works.
The unconscious mind is pretty much what dictates how our show is run, and pretty much because of it we can relax - don't really need to be around too much, or too conscious, too much of the time. We instinctually trust that we can take care of ourselves in almost any situation and pretty much take life easy because of that trust in our unconscious and its reflexes.
The unconscious mind is the repository of most of our tried and true reactions. It is where the command to react and how to react to any given situation is issued. In a nutshell, it gives us our feeling of security; that we don't really need to think except when our unconscious mind feels in need of an answer or a solution to a pending issue, which happens to some of us more often than to others.
The single fault of the unconscious mind is that it takes for true only the impressions and conclusions drawn from life experience and rarely reinvestigates them in the Light of Spiritual Unity or objective truth.
In other words, the unconscious mind is the repository of inherited and acquired (Karmic) assumptions, and extremely resistant to investigation or change, due to its inherently defensive and need-to-be-certain nature. After all, we don't naturally doubt our experience.
However, the experiences of each of us are different, and the conclusions drawn from them may vary upon the temperament and mental makeup of the individual. So it is safe to say that there is no necessary commonality among the multitude of unconscious minds except that they're unconscious. The contents of the unconscious mind are simply not thought about anymore as they are categorized in each individual as foregone conclusions - the way things are; reality.
The Power of the Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind is our organ of power. It simply carries out commands. It brings, it fetches, it changes, it shows, it creates, it demonstrates. It controls our bodies and their actions. For example, if the subconscious registers and accepts the command 'be sick', you can rest assured that sickness will manifest immediately. And so it goes with any thought. Be rich, Be poor, be stupid, be confused, be needy, be pitiful, helpless, hopeless, etc.; all strategic commands given during your infantile and adolescent life in reaction to relationship with other demanding conditional and needy people, in your ongoing endeavor to get what you want.
These conclusions and their relevant commands are now lodged in your unconscious mind and pop up at a moment's notice when the perception of needing them is present. The subconscious hears them and obeys, and the body immediately responds with the equivalent behavior.
This is all proven. The intelligence of DNA and its capacity for immediate response to thought is well documented. And, it can be proven in your immediate experience. Think, for example, a pleasant thought. How does it make you feel? Now think an unpleasant thought. How does that make you feel?
So here's how the Law of Attraction works. It works according to your feeling, not necessarily according to your intention. You can intend good things all day long and still not even have a good day, let alone get all the things you intended. You can 'affirm' all day long (or longer) and still feel hopeless and bereft. Don't you know it's true?
We bring things into existence by our feelings toward them. We literally 'feel' things into existence. The Universe responds to our feelings, not to our will or even to our intention. Intention is only a primary action, but for an intention to reach manifestation there must be the concomitant corresponding feeling. In other words, if you don't feel it, it ain't real.
Which came first, the good news or the happiness? Logical left-brain thinking will tell you, "why the goods news, of course. It made you happy". but could it be that our happiness, or lack thereof, had an influence on the outcome - on the news we heard? This is what is being proposed, and there seems to be some scientific evidence to back it up. In the movie What the Bleep Do We Know it was shown how our attitude in the form of a smile or frown would affect the crystallization of water and snow.
And from there we reach the conclusion that the universe responds to our feelings. and our feelings are the result of our psychic attitude, and that we can control, as in change, our psychic attitude.
So how can we influence our psychic attitude? Well the psyche responds to truth with strength, power and magnetism, and it is very magnetic. and it flees from and abhors falsehood. So when we affirm truth our psyche activates joy and happiness within us, and when we affirm falsehood it responds with its decision to fight or flee. So you can see why the 'fight or flight' mode, the 'reactive mind', is so overwhelminly dominant in us when we are born to be bombarded by a world of deception, falsehood in reasoning and incorrect conclusions.
There are two truths that are inherent in the contemplation of Divine Unity, and these truths are: "There is no Separation" - that Life is a continuum in which all things are always present, and therefore, "There is no Absence" - infinite resources are always available to you with merely a correctly understood thought of that reality. This truth will empower you. Untruth will disempower you. Orient your mind toward thoughts that increase your feeling of goodness and you are increasing your power to be well and to feel and do good. Orient your mind toward thoughts that make you feel bad (yes, unbelievably, there are people who do this consciously and willfully, as will be explained later) and you will increase your capacity to feel bad.
The good news is that in either case you are exercising your power. You ARE in control.
The psyche also responds positively to good news. And the news that it has the power to attract to itself anything and everything it wants can be very happy-making. and that happiness influences the feelings that attract the object of desire.
So WHY do we make the choices we make?
One of the reasons is "It feels like love to me." If we are comfortable and feel a sense of unity and communion with others from tense and argumentative circumstances we will create the circumstances that will cause us to feel similarly at home no matter how perverse (objectively) they may be. If we are accustomed to getting the attention we need by creating ourselves as weak, disempowered and helpless, then we will manifest ourselves according to the strategies we believe will bring about the desired result or feeling.
The universe responds to our happiness. It will give us what we want. But what are we wanting? Where are our commands coming from?
And what is the fastest way to be happy? Why, to have everything we want, of course. Imagine having everything you want. Imagine the fulfillment of your hearts deepest desires. Project that into your future and see how it makes you feel right now.
Wouldn't it be nice if our bodies walked around constantly radiating the feeling of having everything, constantly knowing that it is all there and that we can have or do anything we want at any time? Doesn't that sound like the most wonderful feeling in the world?
Well, it just happens to be true, but how can you convince yourself of that?
If you understand the nature of Unity, of the oneness and immediate presence of all creation, you will understand the power of you subconscious to call upon any part of it at any time, bringing it to you, manifesting it in your presence instantly. Even the idea of the instant acquisition of anything and everything you've ever wanted has got to be a very happy-making feeling, if you can believe it. And that very happiness, the contentment of having it, of knowing that it is yours merely for the wanting, is what draws the objects of your desire toward you.
You do not have to know 'how' it will come to you, merely be assured that it will. For you have placed the command, set the action of conscious attraction into motion, and it no longer can 'not' happen.
The Power of the Conscious Mind
The power of the conscious mind is in its ability to think positively, choosing to send only positive commands to the ever serving subconscious mind. Again from Thomas Troward: "Form the habit of thinking ONLY the thoughts you wish to see crystallized in a worthy achievement or result." It takes a little practice to overcome the influences of the unconscious mind and its tendencies to repel, negate, limit and defend. But keeping the possibilities of a beautiful and glorious life in front of you by continuing to contemplate the reality of Divine unity and the power of the truth that there is no separation and there is no absence, will surely enable you to refine your power of positive thinking and enable you to issue the commands that will manifest for you the fulfillment of your hearts deepest desires.
It IS possible. Millions of people are living lives full of godliness and grace simply by choice. Why not you?
The Power of Happiness
Have you ever noticed how happy people seem to draw everything good to themselves? to attract nothing but good into their lives? We might mistakenly assume that it is because, for some mysterious, unknown reason, they attract everything good into their lives that they are happy. It is not a mysterious unknown reason. Happiness is not dependent upon things. (If anything, it's the other way around). Happiness is a state of mind. It is our natural state of mind, I might add.
One thing that we can control, that we can command, is our state of mind. We can command ourselves to be happy. Doesn't it make you happy to believe that?
The secret of the happy person is that "Like Attracts Like". Isn't it true?
If you are unhappy trying to be happy by attracting happiness, it simply will not work. Haven't you experienced that? But the situation is not hopeless. You simply need to know how to change it.
The Power of Conscious Command
If the subconscious is under the influence and consistently obeying the commands of our unconscious mind, which is the repository of our life's experiences, conclusions and beliefs, the truth and constructiveness of which is at least dubious if not outrightly nonexistent, then wouldn't it be to our advantage to free our obedient subconscious from the influence of these possibly harmful commands floating around randomly in our unconscious mind by learning to connect with it personally and offer it sets of commands hand-tailored by conscious awareness itself to bring about the most immediate maximum benefit in our lives?

 Genevieve Behrend, student of Thomas Troward, paraphrases him by saying, "It should be understood that your subjective mind receives its impressions from the objective mind,and never from material things. It is therefore necessary to withdraw your thought from the material or physical thing you desire and to mentally dwell upon the spiritual symbol of it, which is the inherent source of its formation."
