This form of spiritual practice is not for the faint of heart. Most forms of spiritual practices are dualistic, with the belief that divinity is separate from the individual. Hence, most individuals in this category are seeking for the divine externally, a worthy practice in itself where there are numerous guides and ascended masters ready to lend a hand. I know my own practice has greatly benefited, and probably would not have gotten off ground without constantly seeking the blessings of entities I believe to be more advanced than I. However, the nondualistic practices for which I have been led to traverse, is to realize that the divinity is sourced from within. That the external illusory-reality is simply a gross manifestation of what is occurring within us, subject to the numerous lenses of beliefs and thoughts (karma) that make up are being. That is the essence of "the secret" under the law of attraction, that through our connection to the divinity, we manifest as the divinity. Nonetheless, as Abraham Hicks has stated, "the secret" failed because it did not mention the actual secret, which is that we are source energy.
The nondualistic practice, to recognize the strength of the "I Am" presence where "cosmic consciousness" (higher self) meets the "anu" or individuated point of interest (the individual), is to realize that we are responsible for our own lives and all of its circumstances. That means, no more blaming a Devil, or even God, for all of life's numerous circumstances we ignorantly believe to be follies. We are each responsible for all of our own circumstances, which when looked at from an expansive conscious, is really meant to bring us into fruition. The struggles are merely tilling of the soil, or the sprout attempting to reach above the ground into light, where all of life and the universe it be on our side. Though from the typical form of consciousness, the struggles, the ability to sprout, the ability to see the light at the end of the tunnel, can be a tedious task, especially if your attempting to reach for the unlimited sky. Though the numerous masters are there to assist us, where there vibrations can be felt in prayer, elevated literature, chanting of mantras, or good ole darsan, we are responsible for our own heroes journey.
As the law of attraction entails, your thoughts, beliefs, and mostly the way you feel (vibes), are what get you to where you want to go. Using the power of ones imagination/mediation, one can conjure the ideal life and circumstances, feel as if such has already been accomplished, then attempt to move throughout the daily tasks with the feeling obtained through such imagination/meditation. Nonetheless, as we're still subject to one of the illusions greatest constructs, time (the other being space), the material universe needs some time to adapt to the new vibrations. Especially if you're nuts and are aiming for "cosmic consciousness", life becomes like a see-saw effect where everyday circumstances remind you of the prior beliefs and thoughts one use to hold. Even on a lower ideal, such as attracting the happiest yet most abundant job possible (even if you don't know what that is, feel into it), the perfect compliment to partner with in life, and overall, to fall in orgasmic blissful love with each moment of one's life (to really be in the Now), can force you to deal with yourself, the shadow limitations residing deep in one's psyche.
In attempting to bring my own life into proper fruition via law of attraction, provided that I've hit numerous walls utilizing the way society has instilled how to obtain happiness, I've spent much time assessing my own thoughts and beliefs with the help of numerous teachers. If law of attraction is a new technique for you, well, spend time studying and working with it. If anything, it is the basis for most self-help literature that attempts to assist an individual in taking the next step forward in his/her life journey. However, the process renders transparency to the way one things, and has led oneself through out life. Your weakness are placed on the table for you to see, your sense of worth and value. Everywhere that you have blamed another for your circumstances can be found rooted within one's own psyche, for some limiting belief that has kept you stagnant at a certain threshold.
In amping up one's vibes, the universe will respond, either through manifestation, or signs showing you to keep working on it. The "angel numbers" as so described in the new age movement through repetitive numbers, is one form of manifestation to keep the individual working on the path. Animals sightings are another form of manifestation, should an individual accept such symbolism within his/her life. Should the life not manifest right away, or within a short-duration, especially if your goals are rather high, one is left dealing with doubt, insecurities, any former limiting belief that inhibits the desired lifestyle. Though numerous signs and synchronicities may appear, one can be left feeling daunted, exhausted, and depressed where life isn't changing, and one is left questioning such signs and synchronicities. I know I've thrown down the gauntlet and have often re-questioned the ascended masters I choose to work with as well as the universe in Her divine feminine form.
However, such is merely the limiting beliefs arising, which simply are asking "are you sure you want that lifestyle", and "don't you want to go back to the way things were"?. It's an attempt of the ego-identity to return to the safer, older version of oneself. Not that the ego is bad or evil, it's just want's to be safe, and to not be let down that would further spiral downward into sadness. However, no matter the amount of depression, such should be a good sign. Though the sword penetrating into one's psyche, in order to elevate and open the heart is required more than ever at these times, it seems like the battle is finally getting off the ground in order to assess and integrate what lurks within our shadows. Again, such battle is not meant to be fought alone, where I still use ascended masters, teachers, guides, energy healers, and gemstones to assist on the battlegrounds, it becomes time to truly test one's resolve. Though it can be extremely depressive to undo the limiting beliefs created by the ego-identity in order to minimize the hurt in life that limits our ability to expand into greater avenues, it's important to have the end-goal in mind, and more so, in vibration. Remember, the universe is on our side. Remember, it's the darkest before the dawn.
