I‘ve got some exciting news – at least to me. 🙂 Less than a week from today, I’m getting my first tattoo! It’s going horizontally across the ribs on my left side. I have to send out a huge thanks to Becca Douglas of Eye Scream Paint Shop and Mama Bee’s for designing this beauty for me. You can find her and other spiritual artists and bloggers under my recommendations in the right side bar.


And now, here’s part 2 of the three part guest post series on the fundamentals of the Law of Attraction.


Nothing happens by mistake. The thoughts you think do indeed create your reality. There are two primary forces in the Universe—allowing and resisting. If your manifestation has not yet arrived it is only because you are resisting it.

Here is how this works. Imagine driving your car with one foot on the gas pedal and one foot on the brake at the same time. Your car might be moving forward but there will be quite a bit of resistance along the way, not to mention the damage done to the brakes. Most people become frustrated and stop believing in the power of their own thoughts only because they have unconsciously placed great resistance in front of their dreams. Frustration will pull you even more into the negative thinking mode and create more mistrust in the Law of Attraction.

Let’s say that you desire to have more money. This is a positive thinking manifestation. You are now in a state of creation and allowing. You then might begin to worry about how complicated it will be to have all of this money. You imagine that you won’t know how to manage it. Others will want some of it and you might not know how to say “No” to them. Now you are in a state of resistance. Your foot is “sharply pressing down on the brakes” in your “vibrational” world. This is why your creation has not yet arrived.

When you are in a state of judgment you are also in a state of resistance. Imagine wanting an expensive new car but you have judgments about those who are able to afford expensive new cars. You are now in a state of resistance. Imagine that you want an easy life where you did not have to work so hard to get by. You keep yourself in a state of resistance when you judge others who already have an easy life where they do not have to work so hard. You cannot belong to a club where you despise the current members. If you want your manifestations to arrive you must already be a vibrational match to them. Festering in a state of judgment is just pushing your desires away.

The Four Levels of Consciousness

There are four levels of consciousness. Most people never make it out of level one and are condemned to suffer in this self-imposed hell of an inner world. Here are the four levels of consciousness:

1. Unconscious Unconsciousness
At this stage you are not even aware that you are unconscious. You attract negative things into your life at a rapid pace, as if you have developed a negative ball of energy rolling down hill. Nothing is ever your fault and you are always looking for someone to blame.

2. Conscious Unconsciousness
Here you are aware of your negative thinking and the consequences that it might bring. You might see your negative pattern and have become aware of what it is that you are attracting. You may not like what you are attracting, but you have taken responsibility for it.

3. Conscious Consciousness
You deliberately decide to focus pure and positive thought on something and remove all resistance to its arrival. And, sure enough, it arrives. Your creation might be something as simple as visualizing a parking space opening up for you at the mall. You deliberately intended it, allowed it to come to you and acknowledged it when it arrives.

4. Unconscious Consciousness
When you get to this point, you do not have to work so hard to create things in your life. You are a believer in how the mind game is played and you spend conscious time each day making your mind important. New creations come to you easily and quickly. You have built a positive ball of energy that continues to roll forward in your favor. People call you the “lucky one.”

The Mind is Not the Brain

The scientific and rational community have spent an inordinate amount of time and money studying the brain. The belief among these individuals is that the brain is the ultimate part of who we are. They say that the brain controls everything. The mind, according to these scientific types, is just a function of the brain. This is akin to the belief that the brain secretes hormones through the glandular system, establishes electrical impulses through the electrical system and has many more functions. We are told by some of our scientists who subscribe to the materialist model that the brain is the most important organ and the mind is just an activity that the brain performs.

Other prominent scientists and physicists are working together to provide a new model of consciousness in which the brain acts as an antenna for consciousness, which exists independently of the body. In this model, consciousness does not live in the brain but passes through and is processed by the brain. Consciousness can pass into the smallest cell in one’s body or can travel into the future or across thousands of miles of empty space.

Have you ever heard of someone who was “incurably sick” and learns how to focus his mind and heal his body? This happens every day. When you take your thoughts to Aunt Alice, thousands of miles away, and the next thing you know there is a telephone call from her, the brain did not do that. The mind, traveling far outside the body, reached out to make contact.

Magic will begin to happen at even a quicker pace when we stop studying the brain (just an organ) and learn how to focus our minds. Scientists and brain researchers who aren’t open to non-materialist models of consciousness are far away from the leading edge of discovery. You cannot study the mind with a microscope, X-Ray, MRI or a CAT scan.

I look for article contributions from spiritual and metaphysical professionals or otherwise people who know their stuff. Are you a published author? Do you have a blog of your own? If so, you can submit an article to be featured as a guest post In My Sacred Space.



  1. “You cannot belong to a club where you despise the current members.” Simple yet profound. Again, I can see throughout my life how this principle has been a constant. Jealousy is an equivalent word I’d also use. I think that manifesting, law of attraction, whatever you call it is one of the most exciting aspects of spirituality. But, like anything, if I want to change my beliefs and behaviors in that area, I must practice and aim for “pure and positive thought.” Maybe not so easy when life-long habits are so ingrained. (Not a really “positive” thought, eh?) 😉

  2. I think where people get tripped up is they attempt to suppress negative thoughts – but that is creating resistance to what is. You have the negative thought. You can’t force yourself not to. What you CAN do is accept the thought, examine it, understand it, see it from a different perspective, then release the negative aspect of it and transform it into a positive thought.

My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.
