Your Energy System and The Law of Attraction


Published:

The human energy system includes the upward and downward flow of universal energy into the body and seven major chakras. When our energy system is clear, we are able to project positive energy, one of the key elements required to fulfill the law of attraction.

The best-selling DVD movie, The Secret, wonderfully explores the law of attraction through the voices and ideas of several scholars, and has inspired many of us to take deeper notice of our thoughts, feelings and intentions. The law of attraction states that we attract to ourselves, both consciously and unconsciously, whatever we give our attention to. This attraction occurs whether our focus is to have something or to not have something. Therefore, to attract what we really want, we should use only positive thoughts and feelings to bring it forth.

The law of attraction can best be explained as universal energy which obeys the science of physics based on these three principles: 1) everything is energy; 2) energy follows thought; 3) what you focus on you get more of. We are like cosmic magnets. Our thoughts and feelings send out a vibration, and universal energy matches our vibration by giving us more of the same, resonant energy.

The benefits of positive thinking are not new or secret. But because The Secret bundles its messages in such an uplifting way, it refreshes our perception of ourselves as magnificent creators. However, even if we’ve been practicing the concepts brought out so clearly in the movie, we often still experience wanting something for years, doing all the “right” affirmations, intentions, inspired actions and visualizations, only to find our efforts lead nowhere. The relationship is still missing, the job remains unfulfilling, and the new years resolutions go poof! after 60 days.

Why does this happen? First, we are not alone in the creative process. Our soul is at work, and sometimes our soul knows best what is in our highest good or what lessons we require for our soul growth. These may not be apparent to our conscious mind. Second, divine timing. Sometimes the universe simply asks us to wait until the timing is right. The third factor of manifestation is our own personal energy system which can both support and/or challenge our abilities. Clearing our energy system is a key element required to fulfill the law of attraction.

The human energy system includes the upward and downward flow of universal energy into the human body and the seven major chakras, or energy vortices, which attach to the spinal column. These and other parts of our energy system are very dynamic and change quickly based on what we think and feel. If our thoughts are not positive, our energy system reacts by pulling in negative energy and can become blocked. Old behavior patterns repeat themselves, preventing us from moving towards our greatest intentions. When our energy system is clear, however, we are able to project positive energy, one of the key elements required to fulfill the law of attraction.

Clearing Your Energy System

Thoughts have energy that instantly impacts our energy system. Have you ever felt like you received a sudden jolt around your abdomen during an uncomfortable exchange with someone? It’s because your third chakra, your area of personal power, became blocked because of your thought about the person or situation. If you’ve ever seen a loved one and your heart became full, it’s because your heart chakra responded to your thoughts by opening up and magnifying itself.

Once you have a thought that produces joy, your energy system responds by aligning with the highest aspects of your self. Experiences of joy from the past and the present come flooding toward you adding to the joy of the moment. It’s the same with sadness. A little sadness can bring forth a flood of sadness, especially from the past. So, whether we produce thoughts that make us feel good or produce thoughts that make us feel bad, we will attract similar energy to us.

When we feel really, really, good is the best and most effective time to decide on our intentions and to manifest what we want because our energy system is running at peak cycle. Our energy is beaming positive vibrations outward, so what we get back from the universe is more positive vibrations. This creates a clear path to create the new job, new relationship, financial abundance, regular yoga practice or whatever it is we want to manifest. When our energy system requires repair, we stay on “auto pilot,” repeating the same mental, emotional and behavioral patterns in spite of wanting and intending change. We can waver with our choices, question too much, put off actions and delay making decisions.

Universal energy has both an upward and a downward flow through the body. The upward flow of energy is from the earth and liberates us. When clear, this energy flow can release us from fixed ideas or patterns that aren’t helpful. The downward flow of energy comes in through the crown of the head and is the energy of manifestation. When this flow is clear, we get ideas and inspiration from our upper chakras and we act on them using our lower chakras. So, if there is a block in the upper flow of energy, we stay fixed in our thoughts and behaviors that might be preventing us from creating more of who we are and what we want. If there is a block in the downward flow, we can have ideas but we are unable to manifest them into the world.

All of your thoughts, feelings and vibrations create your aura, the field of universal energy surrounding your body. The aura is your personal energy climate which travels with you throughout the day, attracting positive and negative experiences which match its unique vibration. This universal energy also runs through the chakras. The seven major chakras govern different aspects of our consciousness and influence how we feel, act and manifest.

Crown Chakra

The crown chakra, at the top of the head, is where our Divine Self connects to the human form and where we experience oneness with the universe. This is where we receive divine wisdom and the flow of higher light. This chakra works to support the whole system by bringing in clear, cosmic energy and releasing energy not required by the system. A blocked crown chakra could hold us stuck to unwanted beliefs or create confusion or closed-mindedness, inhibiting our manifestation process.

Third Eye

The third eye, located about an inch above the bridge of the nose, is where we receive inspiration and intuition, and where we connect with other dimensional realms. With a clear third eye we will be open to a flow of new ideas, but if the third eye is not clear, we will stay in our patterns of thinking. A blocked third eye inhibits our imagination and ability to see alternatives. We could be drawn to fantasies, illusions or obsessions rather than intuition and inspiration.

Throat Chakra

When our throat chakra is clear, we easily speak our truth and connect with others through our voice, our communication. If the throat chakra is blocked, energy which is normally expressed through the use of our voice will flow to another chakra as blocked energy. The throat chakra expresses our creative identity and is an important part of creating and acting on our intentions.

Heart Chakra

While the throat chakra is expressive, the heart chakra is receptive and therefore can clog easily. When the heart chakra is blocked we have sadness; when it’s clear we access joy. A closed heart chakra can keep us from connecting with others or from moving on from past hurts. When we release grief and loss through forgiveness and love, we attract to us the love we want in our lives.

Third Chakra

The third chakra, located above the belly button, helps us manifest all of who we are including our values, visions and goals. It’s where we hold our sense of self and use our personal power to carry out our intentions. Governed by the fire element, the third chakra is where we take action. When blocked, we don’t have enough fire, or energy, to act. We can become passive and unable to muster up the discipline, courage or confidence required to create what we want.

Second Chakra

second chakra, located below the belly button, is where we feel and attract resonant energy to us. It magnifies the Law of Attraction. This is also where we hold to old belief systems. If the second chakra is blocked we could feel guilty, untrusting or fearful of change. With a clear second chakra, we embrace change and attract more of what we really want. Governed by the element of water, it’s important this chakra be in a flowing state. Emotions need to be in motion — flowing through us so we don’t stay stuck in our stuff!

Base Chakra

Located at the base of the spine and governed by the earth element, the base chakra provides grounding and support for the entire energy system. It is the last chakra in the downward flow of universal energy and is the foundation for materializing our ideas and intentions. When blocked, the base chakra can bring about fear of survival and attract energy that makes manifestation difficult.

The condition of the human energy system influences how effectively we are able to work with the law of attraction because the energy system is the vibrational force that attracts people, circumstances and events to us. While positive thoughts and feelings have an instant impact on the energy system, some energies have been manifested on a denser, physical level. The mind stores impressions of everything it perceives and our emotional body stores our experiences. Sadness, self-doubt, anger or any negative thoughts or behavior patterns that have built up over time create blockages in the energy system that need to be released before we can create change.

A block means the energy is not in motion and we can’t access the higher aspects of ourselves. All energy healing modalities — Reiki, Healing Touch, shiatsu, polarity therapy and many more — work to release energy blocks and can make the difference between staying stuck and moving on. Energy healing releases negativity, resistance and unwanted habits to free us in our creative process and gives us the “juice” to be inspired and make things happen. Regular energy healing sessions keep the system clear and work through behavioral and emotional patterns that can affect our creative process.

One of the simplest messages in “The Secret” is to discover what gives you joy and do more of it. Since our feelings send a vibration out into the universe, I can’t think of a better gift to give ourselves and the world right now.
