Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction

July 2nd, 2012 Comments Off on Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is a topic that comes up with many clients in my office at Intuitive Hypnosis in Portland, Oregon. It is called by many names, the Law of Give and Take, the Law of Cause and Effect, etc., and has been known for thousands of years. Reference to the Law of Attraction can be found in a variety of spiritual/religious writings in a variety of cultures.

The Law of Attraction says, “that which is like unto itself is drawn,” and that our life experiences are the reflection of our thoughts and emotions. Our thoughts and emotions emit certain frequencies. According to the Law of Attraction, the frequencies we send out match up with like frequencies and come back to us as experiences, opportunities, and interactions with others. Many people believe that by learning to fine-tune our thoughts and emotions we can be the deliberate creators of our reality and have anything we want.

If this is true, then we should simply be able to focus our attention on the things we want in life and, like magic, they should appear, right? Yes and no. In theory, it really is that simple, but in reality, we often think we are focusing on what we want, when in fact, we are really focused on the lack of what we want, as evidenced by negative or unpleasant emotions.

Many people mistakenly believe that if they have this job or that relationship, then they will find happiness. Law of Attraction says it is the other way around. You have to find that state of happiness and contentment first, creating that as your point of attraction, and then that great job or that wonderful relationship will find its way to you.

For example, we’ve all heard stories about couples trying to conceive, without any luck. Once they accept the fact that they cannot conceive and they adopt a new baby, voilà, they find out they’re pregnant.  Law of Attraction would say they were able to conceive because they were no longer focused on the lack of what they wanted, and that because they were emitting the positive, happy, excited emotions that accompany the news of their successful adoption, they brought into their lives what they wanted – a baby.

You may have heard that it is easier to find a job when you already have one. Again, Law of Attraction would say it’s because you are not sabotaging yourself by focusing on the lack of what you want. Because you already have a job, you are not emitting frequencies of stress, or worry. It’s all about your emotions. You can say all the happy, positive words you want, but if your emotions are focused on the negative, or the lack of what you want, than that’s what you get.

How about dating? Ever know someone who had the hardest time getting a date, and then when they finally meet someone they really care about, all of a sudden, everyone seems to be attracted to them? Again, Law of Attraction would explain that you get what you are thinking, or feeling, whether you want it or not.

What is your point of attraction? Do you want more money in your life? If you are worried about not having enough money, you are in fact maintaining your financial status by worrying about it. How about relationships? Do you believe that all men, or all women, are alike? Actually, they’re not. However, if you find yourself unable to let go of negative thoughts and feelings about previous relationships, you’ll very likely draw into your life a carbon copy of what you’re dwelling on.

How is this relevant to hypnosis? Hypnosis is an excellent way to discipline your mind to stay focused on what you want in life, and to help you recognize when you are habitually running negative thoughts. Negative thinking is just a habit and can be changed. Hypnosis can help you train your mind to think about what you want, and to notice the evidence in your life pointing out opportunities instead of obstacles.

We all look at life through filters. You can spend years in therapy finding out what your filters are, how they got there, and how they are affecting your life. Alternatively, you can simply discipline yourself to see life through the filters of your choice. Hypnosis can help you create that discipline, and teach you to wake up each day looking only for that which you want to see, to listen only for that which you want to hear.

Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, learning to truly accept the “what is” in your life, as well as consciously assigning the meanings you give to life and to your experiences, will improve your quality of life.  Be a conscious, deliberate participant in your life. Life is what you make of it. You are in control. Let hypnosis help you develop the discipline to keep your thoughts and emotions focused on what makes you feel good about your life!
