The “Attraction Myth”

In response to our new Abundance Point Course, a lady named
Nikki responded…

“Sounds interesting.  And you are right, those do seem like
bold claims – instead of waiting weeks or months, we can
experience results within just hours or days!!  How can
you guarantee that?  Sorry if I sound sceptical but after
having spent thousands and thousands of dollars on
LOA courses and systems that promised great results
and often fast results, I just have to ask how you can
guarantee that?

Sincerely, Nikki

I responded…

“Great question.

We discussed this very topic on our recent Tele-Seminar
on how the Abundance Point Course is different.  The link
to the preview audio is at:
http://www.dreamsalive.com/AbundancePoint-sg.htm

LOA is not a “law” at all…

In short, LOA is not a “law” at all…

The premise of the “law” of attraction is that if you “do” something
– and do it the “right way”, then you’ll “attract” something.

But the false premise is that you’re separate from the very thing
your mind thinks you need to “attract”.

In other words, why if you’re Source would you need
to attract anything at all?

Make sense?

The flaw in the “Attraction Myth” is that every time you think you
need to attract something (or align, do, shift vibration, etc) you
actually send the signal to your subconscious that you don’t
have it to begin with.

And that signal is your feelings.

Feelings trump thoughts 9 times out of ten.

The Abundance Point Course begins with the simple premise that
you already are that which you seek.

As you learn the principles of the course, you’ll begin to open your
“awareness field” and things, ideas, people, possibilities, money,
etc will begin to “show up” in your field.

The weird part…?

The beauty is that it was there all the time, and all we need to do is
let go of the human “laws”, beliefs and limited perceptions and step
into a Divine Level of Knowing, wonder, and awe.

The “Scarcity Meme” is ending

The “Scarcity Meme” is quickly dissolving and giving way to
the new Abundance Point Paradigm.

The days of worrying an suffering about having “enough” (or
feeling like you’re enough are fading.

Nikki wrote:
“I just have to ask how you can guarantee that?”

Our guarantee is if you apply what we teach you (to remember
not strive for or try to “attract”) then you will feel results in just days.

Or your money back.  That comes from our Hearts.

“Seeing them” (results) is up to how you work with yourself
on the inside.

Remember, the new paradigm is not about how much you can get or have.

It’s about how you can contribute – and the universe will respond
to your intent – in every moment.

That’s the beauty of life – it will literally teach you how to manifest
– with grace and with ease.

If it’s not manifesting, it’s quietly telling you to let go of the old ways…

An embrace the new…

Blessings,

Paul Bauer

    Dear Sir, to me this makes quite a lot of sense, particularly from the perspective of metaphysics. I can see that what is at play here is a consciousness of claiming rather than focusing on lack. Thanks for the ‘ah ha’ moment.

    Love it. Who decided the “law” of attraction was even a law? Thank you for questioning the assumption. Now the gurus are selling courses explaining the other “laws” and the “Forgotten” laws. I am starting to see that it is simply marketing. We are Source, not separated from it by a law. I’m looking forward to learning more from you. I like your clear and common sense approach. *sighs with relief*

    Hi Paul,

    Interesting reading. Here is my take on this, in short. Everything is energy. Energy vibrates. Like attracts like. (Law of Attraction)
    In other words as I understand it, it’s not about ‘doing something right’ it’s about raising your vibrational level to the same level of what you want to attract. And I believe that that’s where your abundance course might be useful for anyone, who as you say is living from ‘lack’ e.g. thinking/feeling that they do not have enough/are not enough…… and may need to become Aware.
    One of the big keys as I understand is to be in touch of your feelings, as you rightly point out…. and to remember that you get what you think about, whether you like it or not, so watch where you put your attention.

    This is just skimming the surface, Awareness is the Key and learning to Allow too.
    It is as you said, digging into those old beliefs and choosing ones (if necessary) that work for us. And why not indeed, we all deserve that and there is enough for everyone….
    All lack and limitations are manmade, Creations of the human mind!
    ‘Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change’ (unknown)
    Blessings Paul,
    Loving Annaliisa

    I had a sort of “ah ha” moment reading these comments. I have a 68 year habit of thinking “I lack” and overcoming that is my problem. But the comment above: “. . . if you “do” something – and do it the “right way”, then you’ll “attract” something” reveals to me the importance of knowing what one wants; having something we want, and feeling–getting excited, feeling motivated–that it’s already a part of us. Sort of bringing the future into the present. (Martin Heidegger: Being and Time. “We are already dead,” death being the one thing in our “future” of which we can be certain.)

    Thank you, Paul, for what you said. The most powerful ideas are those that are the simplest: we have within us that we need and desire.

    I will always remember that and you’ve shifted my consciouness already with what you said.

    “I have within me all that I need and desire.”

    It is clearly recognized, whether intuitively, or through the study of quantum physics, there is no need to ‘attract’ anything at all. When we intend to change our DNA and manifest what we desire, we are simply using the law of physics – we are allowing ourselves to ‘see’ what is already there. There is also no need to worry about The ‘Law of Attraction’ concept that we all experienced for so many decades, it took us to a certain level of understanding, and now that we know better, we do better.

    Hey there,
    So I love everything about what you’re saying here. I would like to add that the mind and the ego naturally see separation everywhere. It is what they are,and it’s their job. So it seems this evolution is simply about becoming aware of our mind and our ego. I notice that when I meditate in that way, I naturally see a much larger picture…which is that we are not just are minds/egos, we are much much more than that.
    In fact we are everything, we are all that is. We are pure Source.
    Thanks for all you are doing to clarify this point. This myth about attracting something from the outside to you, is obviously from that same old separation consciousness. Thank you so much for helping me clarify this whole manifestation concept. My life is already changing!!
    With so much gratitude
    Blessings

    Hi,

    The words to explain how we create our own reality ‘law of atraction’ is originally from Abraham Hicks and used by lots of people now. Not everybody ‘gets’ what Abraham are talking about with the law of attraction.
    It is like Annaliisa is saying and it is not something to do. It is what you vibrate and we do that all the time.
    To feel and know that everything is already here and done is also what Abraham talk about. At the moment they call it ‘in the vortex’. Feel your way in, they say, as you do. You are the vortex. It is already done.
    I just had to speak up for Abraham 😀 who I think (and feel ;)) are great teachers as I think you are!

    Thank you,
    Anita

    Hello Paul,
    you are so right on with your message. Through the years I have been using the Holosync program which trains your mind to be non-dualistic and to be ACTIVE with your INTENT so that you can MANIFEST what you really need vs
    what you WANT. This has helped me so very much… so much so, that I have so much energy for my age that it is almost unbelievable. I require very little sleep and can’t wait to begin another day to serve others in my ministry.
    Thank you for all you do in making a difference and Blessings on your ministry!
    Rita

    Paul, I must congradulate you on the information that you have provided in this post. As with many things, in the beginning, they only told us 1/2 the story so we could go and figure out the rest. Now there is information coming out of the woodwork on the “LOA” subject. In fact under Google it is a category all by itself. But what would like to share with all of you is that nothing will work :unless” you make the choice to did deep down inside and find out what your limiting beleifs are. You will continue to have issues trying to make things work as long as those ‘self-made” beleifs exists. So find them, acknowledge them, delete them and replace them with new beleifs. Sounds familiar? Search,Find,Acknowledge,Delete Allow and Replace. More value to all of you!

    Hi Paul, you’re absolutely right. For me it all starts with Being (we are individually a part of the Whole creation)and the Power within. It is awareness and belief that attracts success. Everything is Energy. Thought (in a focussed and positive manner)can change how that energy manifests. Electricity, telephones, the internet etc were always available – we just weren’t aware and focussed enough. Nor did we believe that it was possible.

    It seems to me that, once you stop trying so hard,and just “be”, and , once you let go of
    “wanting”, then, everything falls into place and the Universe unfolds just as it should.

    The Human experiment/experience has been plagued with this illusion of “not enough” caused by another illusion called separation. When in ultimate reality there is only one thing and that’s Life. Life is a vibration in relative degrees. (High/Low). Love is the Force that makes Life work. It is the wet of the water. Inseparable. All is One. When you clear all conclusions/illusions and stop the static, Source Energy will bring to you the Completeness of Self. That’s why you came here! In that state of Being you are The Re-created Creator..and the Cycle/Circle is complete..You are all that you choose to be without choosing!

    Dear Paul,
    Please elaborate more about the importance of infusing your desires with the “Ha” breath.

    Dear Paul, I love, I like the simple way you`re explaining the point. Thank you for “beating” a bad sofism like LOA. I was asking the same thing the lady wrote you.

    Thanks Paul,
    There was always something that bothered me about the LOA, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it… you have helped me to pin-point it.
    I believe that with faith we can move mountains. But the LOA seems to undermine the whole faith thing. I can’t agree with you more that we have been given all things, and it’s our faith that determines how we manifest the Kingdom of God in our daily lives.

    @Annaliisa – Annaliisa, that quote is often referenced to Dr. Wayne Dyer, it is not his, it is from Dr. Max Planck, German physicist.

    Very interesting, Paul, thanks for pointing it out this way, it makes soooo very much sense. Yep, we have it all, being a spiritual image of God, yet, our ego prevents us constantly from seeing and admitting that, as is said: “we are in our own way, whereby ‘we’ is our ego! This bit of awareness takes daily repetition to get the ego out of the way – I will make it so! Thanks, Elvire

    Hi Paul – thank you so much for sending this out. I’ve recently been in touch with some limiting beliefs and really needed this reminder that we are never in lack. As another poster mentioned, I’ve always had an issue with LOA because it seemed to be saying you could not have all your emotions since some were “bad” and so don’t feel them. In my own healing path, I’d come to resonate with the truth (for me) that my feelings are there to show me where I need to heal. LOA doesn’t honor that. What you and Susan teach is so much more loving and honoring to all that a human being is. THANK YOU!

    Defintely the best account of the problem with the LoA I’ve found. I felt like The Secret got me into this “omg the rat race can be conquered just by thoughts!!!” when I first discovered it three years ago, and it wasn’t until I learned from Lynn Grabhorn did I realize it’s emotion, and when I started studying Asian philosophy with Alan Watts recordings did I realize that the rat race is an illusion people bought into and built their lives around. This makes so much sense and I agree whole heartedly – everything that is and you are you already are; yes you will win the rat race, but that is simply a byproduct of being awesomely yourself.
    Thank you Paul!

    I get it! If I’m not my body, mind, or my brain – that means I’m pure energy, which is fueled my my feelings, which manifest my physical reality! Right?

    I mean correct me if I’m wrong… but that’s the only way I can understand this concept.

    So, if I go with that, it’s easier for me to understand that everything is already available to me now, not at some point in the future because I truly exist outside of the time/space paradigm.

    I can understand why people have trouble grasping these concepts. It’s not like anything we have ever consciously spoken about in general societal settings. It begins to sound as outlandish as Einstein’s theory of relativity, or quantum physics, which states that something only exists when we focus our attention on it! Those ideas are now proven by science. And, we don’t doubt them as we once did. This stuff blows the mind because we don’t have enough points of reference yet. But when we do have them, it will be just as easy to accept them. And so much easier to manifest how we desire to live, creating the environment we feel is best for us and for others. What a beautiful thought!!! I’m looking forward to that day!!!

    Thanks for letting me share my thoughts.
