Qigong and law of attraction

What is the law of attraction?

Law of attractionWhat is the Law Of Attraction and how does it work? The Law Of Attraction was made famous worldwide by author Ronda Byrne in the year of 2006 with the cult movie and book ‘The Secret’. However, the truth of the matter is that this law has been around since time began, and Ronda found a way to cash in on its teachings en masse. She is actually a living example of how this law can work when we commit to it. Her book and movie took the world by storm and still captivates audiences to this day, and many off shoots of the teachings of this universal law have surfaced since then.

How does it work?

The basic premise of the law is simple: in order to live the life we want, have the things we desire such as health, wealth happiness, fulfilling relationships which feel deeply rewarding to us or anything else we’d like to experience in our life, we must FIRST be happy WITHOUT these things before they show up in our life.

This goes against everything we are taught in our culture. We usually think it should be the other way around. We think ‘when I have that thing (insert job promotion/relationship/more money/child/family/whatever) THEN I will be happy. The problem with this thinking is we work our way to try to get these things, but even if we manage to achieve all or some of them, if have not been living in joy along the way, we are most likely to not enjoy the thing we have managed to create or achieve when we get there.

The secret is in ancient teachings.

Law Of AttractionSo, why would this be the case? Well, if we look at pretty much ALL ancient teachings such as Taoism, Buddhism, Gnosticism, and other mindfulness practices which promote the importance of living in the present moment, the reason we might struggle to create the life we want comes down to our lack of ability to be able to present in the moment and present in our body and enjoy the time and space we are experiencing right in the here and now.

What’s wrong with the current modern day teachings of Law Of Attraction?

If you watched The Secret or read the book, the concepts of successfully using the law of attraction are painted as something that should come easily to us. For example, if we sit and visualise the thing that we want, it will eventually show up.

Problem is, if we are sitting and visualising the thing we want with a keen awareness that it has not shown up yet, the thought pattern and emotion that we are actually practicing here is one of lack, so we are actually enhancing the feeling of lack, and therefore more lack of the thing we want is likely to show up. Not only this, it does not take into consideration our deeply held beliefs about what is possible for us, our psychological wounding, and our daily habits.

Most of our life is driven by our subconscious and our daily habits.

habitsAs a former professional musician, current fitness professional and teacher, the biggest problem I have observed both in myself and others when we say we want something, is our inability to focus on a daily and consistent basis. We live in an instant gratification society which takes our focus away from the most important aspects of life. We don’t regard spirituality or the immaterial realm as overly important, and yet science tells us that what we can perceive as humans is only a fraction of what is actually present in the swirling vortex of energy that surrounds us. We are more distracted than ever before with our informational online world, that we forget about the slow methodical process of developing a skill, pushing through boredom and frustration, and staying the course.

The true secret to mastering the Law Of Attraction

If you are genuinely looking to experience a more favourable condition in your life that you are otherwise not experiencing, the first thing to think about is to ask yourself where your focus is. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What are you actually thinking about all day long?
  • Are you focusing on what you don’t have as opposed to what you do have that is pleasing to you?
  • Are you consumed with the problems in your life more than you are consumed with feelings of gratitude and appreciation?
  • Are you deeply resentful towards someone in your life?
  • Do you hate your job and focused on how miserable it is making you feel?

Remember the basic principle of Law Of Attraction: in order to get the things we most want in life, we must first be happy BEFORE these things show up in a way that we can truly enjoy them.

The bottom line with the law of attraction in order to make it work for us, is if we don’t have a daily practice of something that makes us feel good, then no amount of law of attraction techniques will work for us. We can visualise and meditate and create our vision boards and set our goals to the cows come home, but if these practices don’t leave us feeling elevated with a sense of more joy, then they are a waste of time.

What’s the fastest way to make law of attraction work?

qigong practiceThe fastest way to make the law of attraction work for us is in reducing our stress and healing our emotional wounds which therefore automatically paves the way to feeling better about our life, and my recommended way to do this is from ancient energy practices. It is my firm belief that if we don’t feel good in our body, then we are not going to be able to feel good in our mind. We are so in our heads today which is mostly driven by our culture of striving to achieve wealth and status and power in some way that we have forgotten how to listen to the wisdom of our body. Therefore, it is important to find ways to get out of our head and release stress through moving meditations. We have forgotten that our entire body is made up of energy and this energy expresses itself through our emotions. We are made up of vibration and frequency and this is just basic science, and yet it has somehow been relayed in modern life that this scientific fact is not relevant. And yet, studies such as this one demonstrate how tangible vibrations affect our well-being and feelings of happiness.

My top recommendation for making law of attraction work for you.

I have delved down a lot of paths in my study on The law Of attraction over the years, but I know of nothing more effective than the practice of qigong for achieving a more harmonious state of mind and relaxed body, therefore a time tested way of helping us make the law of attraction work more effectively. Qigong simply means ‘energy mastery’ or ‘energy skill’, and when we are feeling good our energy is high. So anything we can do to elevate our energy and our vibrational frequency is a direct route to making the law of attraction work as fast as possible. We must first feel good before anything else! We must make this our top priority daily and commit to a practice that makes us feel good or at least BETTER than what we felt before the practice. In this way, we are getting out of our own way when it comes to being able to focus on the things we want in our life because we are approaching everything in a more light-hearted and flow filled way. We can focus more because we are less likely to be bogged down by stress and negative emotions, and therefore being able to commit to the steps we need to take in order to move towards something that is desired in our life. Qigong is such a practice and teaches us to flow with life, let go and heal our body and mind. It goes beyond any typical fitness regime and embraces the material and immaterial realms of life. We learn to get back in contact with our energy body, our repressed emotions and let them go. We free up our body and our mind in order to create more joy within. Life becomes easier with practice over time, and our ability to create more favourable conditions in our life is enhanced. We attract new circumstances and people into our life because of the energy we are naturally emitting after some time of practice.

How to practice qigong.

how to practice qigongYou don’t have to leave your home to practice qigong, and you don’t need special clothing either. You could do it in your pajamas and it wouldn’t matter. If you have an internet connection and a computer or smart phone, that is all you need. There are thousands of different kinds of qigong, but a qigong master I am currently studying with via distance education is master Mingtong Gu. He is the founder of the Wisdom Healing School and so far my journey with him has been intriguing, mind blowing and deeply relaxing. He recommends that you practice along with a video first thing in the morning or last thing before you go to bed, for at least 30 minutes each time. He also suggests that you print out a sheet to be able to mark down every day after your practice called ‘100 day Gong’ which helps keep you focused and accountable to your practice. He says you must practice every day, and if you miss a day, you should practice for twice the length the next day. And if you miss 2 days, then you should start your 100 day Gong streak all over again.

The scientific facts around qigong

if you go into pubmed and type in ‘qigong’, you will find hundreds of studies on the effectiveness of qigong. So, not only does qigong have a long history of thousands of years, but modern day science is also affirming its effectiveness.

The Science Of Qi

The Science Of Qi

The science of qi can be understood in the same way we seek to understand the science of energy in the universe in all its forms and how it affects us. We know energy exists, but we are not sure why it exists and where it comes from. In other words, we don’t yet understand what caused the Big Bang in the first place-we just know it happened, and over time we have learned to use the energy that comes from nature to power our homes and work our wireless technology and drive our cars amongst many other things. Just as a scientist works and studies to understand energy and how we can use it, we can also work to understand the innate energy flowing in our body and what practices we can do to use it more effectively.
