You can’t fake out your heart. Why does that matter? It matters because The Laws of Attraction are predicated on what you believe in your heart of hearts. It is the heartfelt belief that is the attractor factor. The basic law of attraction is “like attracts like.” There is a ton of material published about this basic law of the universe, but often it misses the mark. Much of the information states that: what you are thinking is what you get. And this is true with one major caveat. If you are thinking one thing and feeling another, you get what you are feeling, not what you are thinking. Therefore, your highest, best and most creative thoughts are generated by what the heart is feeling. For example, if your mind or someone else has you convinced that you are a sales person, but deep in your heart, you know that you would rather be a teacher, then that sales career is going to be a struggle for you. Things will not be easy. You will have to work very, very hard to make happen what happens easily for the person in sales who is in alignment with that career in their heart. Yes, you can be trained and yes you can be somewhat successful, but can you be genuinely happy. Not a chance!
There is twenty years of research behind the idea that the heart has intelligence. The Institute of HeartMath has been conducting the lion’s share of this research and if you take the time to study it, you will see that their findings are hard to dispute. With attraction patterns being actually generated from the heart, it is impossible to attract in what you are not truly feeling. The heart cannot be fooled. If our mind tries to convince us to do something that is out of alignment with our heart and we follow through with that choice then we are choosing a more difficult path. The heart always leads us down the path of least resistance. Many of you may be thinking something like, “I did not want this business to fail or to be fired from my job, etc.” The heart speaks from spirit so the big trick is to be in touch with that spirit. The best way to access spirit is through the heart.
I saw a bumper sticker the other day that read, “Life is the school, Love is the lesson.” Understanding this is critical to understanding who you are and what you are all about. In actuality there are only two emotions from which all others are born and they are love and fear. Caution is one thing, fear is another. When you are feeling fearful your thoughts will attract in fear based results just as when you are loving you will attract in love based results. The idea is to learn how to reverse those fear based feelings and subsequent fearful thoughts so that you will attract in results that are in alignment with spirit ultimately bringing you happiness not followed by unhappiness.
