Law of Attraction: 5 Golden Keys to Harness the Power of the Universe

Submitted by Open on Wed, 03/09/2011 - 06:55

The Law of Attraction is a powerful tool of the Universe no doubt. Unfortunately, to my mind, it's been much misdirected and maligned, cleverly disguised in trying to get what the ego wants. But especially now, in these times of great challenge and turmoil, we can bring it to bear in support of our lives in most beneficial ways, providing we do so authentically, and in alignment with the natural flow of the Universe. Let's explore.

The Law of Attraction: meaning

First, it's essential to understand the meaning of 'Law'. This is not something that has been purposefully designed and handed down to us by some absolute creator God. It is a natural effect of the flow of the Universe arising spontaneously from the Source. Separation Consciousness happened at the big bang, but then an organising force (known as negentropy in quantum physics) crystallises it into form - draws it together.

In this flow back to Oneness, like attracts like - reflections happen through synchronicity - put simply, if the soul is allowed to flow freely, it will attract exactly the reflections it needs to see and experience. Which includes its shadow - a crucial aspect often missed.

So in the case of the Law of Attraction, it is an inevitable dynamic caused by the spontaneous separation of the Universe at the big bang, for just as the ripples flow outwards on the surface of the pond, the water is held in place by the undertow pulling back to the centre again.

So how does the Law of Attraction truly work?

Each of us replicates the universal dynamic of unity and separation flowing inside of us. Our beingness is continually reshaping itself to gain ever greater internal harmony. To facilitate this natural flow of Ascension, we create external mirroring circumstances to reflect our internal configuration of consciousness.

Our every thought, feeling, word, deed is a mirroring opportunity. In other words, it's like each of us is a cinema projector, creating the outer movie of our lives by what we're being within.

Everything is formed of energy - consciousness - which in itself arises from the source, the source being the 'audience' in the dynamic - the Seer of all things. They are totally and utterly inseparable. So the observer in us affects and influences EVERYTHING that we do and experience.

Whatever we bring our attention to, or whatever our consciousness is currently revealing, is projected into our lives and shapes all of the interactions we experience.

The Fundamental Purpose of the Law of Attraction

When we realise this, we have the potential to be enormously empowered.

Life flows through you as the soul. It's naturally yearning to actualise an expression - a reflection - of the One. The Universe tirelessly configures and conspires to reveal this. BUT, it's NOT about getting a particular outcome from this dynamic, other than the actualisation itself.

The One is working to see itself and be itself, through YOU.

When you are being this dynamic, then the quantum field bends naturally around you to reflect your expression. You're acting like a magnetic pole that draws to you. Crucially though, you're also going to draw the uncomfortable, unpleasant side of your consciousness - that which you might want to distance from. But this is self-defeating. You can override it for only so long. At some point, this karma that you might have buried will come back, just in another guise and circumstance.

What we really need to do is to UNPACK and INTEGRATE our shadow.

The key is to realise this and accept it. That you're ALREADY manifesting perfectly. You're doing it to see yourself. Now you have a golden opportunity to change, to evolve and grow.

What's more, when you surrender into this evolutionary process, the whole Universe works with you, in every given moment. When you realise and accept it, reality turns on its head for you - EVERY moment can be successful, even when it's difficult and doesn't want to flow.

5 Golden Keys to Work with the Law of Attraction

From my experience in working with thousands of people around the world, here are 5 Authentic Keys that truly work with the Law of Attraction...

Key 1) By keen observation of the outer circumstances of our lives in relation to our inner feelings, keep working to realise that the perfect mirroring circumstances are being continually drawn to us to reveal inner tightness and blockages - our buttons are getting pressed!

Key 2) Accept totally what comes up. Do not try to resist or deny the situation in any way. Our thoughts and emotions provide vital reflections for a new unfolding and way of being. Do not try to override or change thoughts and emotions at this stage - that would be like removing invaluable evidence at the 'scene of a crime'.

Key 3) Ask, why do I feel uncomfortable about what is going on right now? What can I not accept? What outcome do I perceive I am needing from this situation? Go deep into it and explore any resistance to the moment you might have. If we continually turn the mirror inwards, the resistance will unwind.

Key 4) Unleash new aspects of beingness wanting to reveal themselves. Creation is all about manifesting who we truly are. The whole universe supports this one unifying purpose. So look into the outside mirror to the profound aspects of beingness that are being reflected back to you... maybe a smile from someone in the face of adversity, or the surrender of a 'saint', the confidence of someone in her power or a creature in nature. What are you drawn to? What manifests in your environment? Now look for that aspect of beingness in yourself.

Key 5) By attuning to the natural expressions of beingness that inspire us on the outside, unleash them on the inside. Give maximum attention to expressing the fullness of these authentic gifts. This is the true creative power in our lives and if we unleash it, then we'll create exactly the right outer harmony for that beingness. Life will feel increasingly miraculous and magical, as if the whole universe is working for you - it is!!

Enhancing Your Power by Co-creating with the Universe

We can enhance this co-creation with the Universe by working to reveal authentic beingness.

We - as the soul - are a channel for that flow of divine energy. Since the soul is our unique reflection of the Seer, then we embody and radiate the unified characteristics of the Seer outwards (what we term at Openhand as...Seven Rays of Divine Impulse). There is no need or desire of a particular outcome, it's all about expression, learning, and evolution, the eternal realisation of higher harmonies.

To be truly content and aligned in life, is to be the Seer aligned with the natural spontaneity of the soul all the time. This is Enlightenment - an awesomely ordinary and entirely natural state of beingness.

Now the soul may 'see' what is coming into fruition. We may dream it, have spontaneous visions of what is forming often felt as an inner yearning, an upwelling from the depths of our being. We become the channel of this creative action. And this is where it can often get confusing...

"It is not about the creation itself that counts It is the act of creating, for in the act of creating we're fully expressing our purpose, the continual realisation and crystalisation of who we are."

The Law of Attraction Working Perfectly

Law of Attraction? 5 Golden Keys to Harness the Power of the Universe
(scroll to the top)

The main motivation for me was to invite people to embrace not only the positive reflections from the Law of Attraction, and not to try to intentionally manipulate it, however to embrace also the reflections of the shadow side that we create. It's not about simply trying to dump it. Because in those reflections are essential nuggets of soul gold that got buried in the subconscious. So embrace what you create. Explore why you created it - what does it trigger inside? Then use something like Openhand's Breakthrough Approach to unravel it.

Feel free to share your experiences of the mirrors you're creating...

Needed this reminder. Find myself resisting again snd trying to change the outcome. Even while knowing how profound the change is that is being invited. Even getting glimpses. Knowing that everything i want, strength, patience, unwavering calm, acceptance, tolerance, deep understanding, and the absence of all the behaviours and emotions that hinder my freedom and cause so much suffering, is right there, in the suffering. Has opened my eyes a little to others" behaviours. If it's this hard for me to change when i'm consciously trying, how must it be for those traumatized in some way who continue to project that pain out into the world unconsciously? They won't change, so changing the perspective and digging deeper for acceptance and understanding, especially when i'm exactly the same way, is a step towards freedom from the ego's need to defend itself. Still SO. HARD. The ego is a formitable opponent. It feels like wearing a huge wet blanket that controls my mind and actions and i can't shake it off. Smothering and constricting and so heavy but somehow feels safe and familiar. Want so badly to shrug it off. Just want to flow.

I'm really confused about the reflections I currently create. Mostly on the plane of emotions/relating, I get so lost there. At the same time I feel so much passion for wanting to work through it, yet it doesn't seem to want to happen, instead I'm faced with rejection. It feels too personal to share details here right now, but I want to reach out anyway.

Much love.

What immediately jumps out Hannah is the word "rejection".
How are you rejecting yourself?
What is it that you struggle to accept about yourself?
Can you be okay with the shadowside?
What is there in the shadow to integrate that then becomes a part of you?
When you do this, the veil over what you manifest in the external will fall away and you'll create greater harmony.

This should be a good start. We can go further privately as and when you need to.

Hi Mantian,

Do things to which you are attracted to and one that makes you feel energetic.The more you do the more you forget about the negative past.
I avoid going to places and meeting people with whom I feel uncomfortable.I want to be myself.I feel fully present at places where I want to be.Many people note this and get attracted towards in saying that you are shining light on others as well.Completely forget about who thinks what....and be yourself.



hi Mike, thanks for your thoughts. I too used to beat myself up, but no more... though I do feel a little rude every time I turn down an invite to a pub or party! ...mind you, that isn't very often.. thankfully! :)


Hi Mantian,

Great question and it all boils down to walking the path and what you find your soul saying.

So you have to get to know the difference between a low energetic location which makes you feel heavy, and where you yourself contract because of the situation. The two are very different.

You ask the question:

    "Should I be putting myself into situations I find uncomfortable in order to grow?"

You see this is really a question from the mind - it's asking should you intend something? With the soul there is no intention. So we work to hear and listen to the soul. If it is meant to be that we go into a difficult situation, we will feel it as an inner knowing or a heart-felt pull. This could be to cause you to confront where the ego tightens as a result. So this is the time to feel your contraction and soften into it - accept things as they are.

Once you're softened this tightness, maybe next time you'll be taken into dense environments to bring light to them.

When there is nothing more for you to learn from a situation, you won't keep recreating it. Although you may still get taken into these places in order to bring light.

Hope this helps. :smile:

Thank you for your reply. It does help. I feel the example I gave probably fits both the low energetic location and my contracting because of the situation! However, I don't feel that I 'should' be forcing myself into those situations. And I don't feel that is avoidance or running away from such a situation. Over the years I certainly have put myself into what I find to be uncomfortable situations, but in higher energetic situations/locations, and have come out the other side feeling far more comfortable and positive for having being there :)


Thanks for your article. It certainly brings some clarity and understanding to Law of Attraction.

I have a question though. You say that we should allow ourselves to feel the tightness in mirroring circumstances that bring up these feelings. There are situations which I know do make me feel tight, and so I avoid them. A very good example of this is going to parties, pubs and the like. I haven't enjoyed these kinds of situations for many years, probably due to a variety of reasons, so I just avoid them. I'm sure this stems from my darker years earlier in life. There is another very real reason why I don't enjoy such situations. In any noisy environment, I find it very difficult to tune in to a conversation I might be involved in. As a result, I find it very hard to join in and essentially end up feeling rude or get left standing on the sidelines! Also, I do find it hard to join in with converstaions that I really have no interest in! So the result is I feel quite uncomfortable in these situations and, as I say, just avoid them.

I would appreciate your insight. Should I be putting myself into situations I find uncomfortable in order to grow?
