Like Attracts Like

Our thoughts and words carry a vibration. That vibration attracts more of the same to itself. Whatever you’re thinking about right now is creating your next moment of experience for you.

I remember hearing David Hawkins, author of Power vs. Force, speak at a conference I attended in Los Angeles. He shared some experiments he conducted on muscle testing with different thought vibrations. His first experiment was to pick up a stack of those giant encyclopedias while thinking negative thoughts and then walk around carrying them. Remember those encyclopedias you needed to use two hands to hold?

As he focused on thinking negative thoughts, the encyclopedias were nearly impossible to pick up. Eventually, he lifted them using all of his might, still holding onto the negative thoughts, yet unable to take one step before he dropped them.

His next experiment was to silently repeat in his mind the words I am love, lift the books and walk around repeating those words. He raised the same stack with ease and carried them all around his home, up and down the stairs, laughing with joy.

When I visited India, I practiced chanting 3-5 times daily with my traveling companions. A story was shared with me about the yogis in India who chant a specific chant for themselves for extended periods. The chant carries a vibration with it so powerful that when one yogi runs into another yogi on the street, he can identify the chant that yogi has been practicing based on the vibration emanating from him.

The same is true for the thoughts we think and the words we speak. The repetitive thoughts we think, and the words we speak are sent out into the world as vibrational frequencies and then out-pictured in our reality. Both attract like a magnet anything with the same vibrational frequency back to us. Individuals, plants, and animals pick up on vibrational frequencies and are either repelled by or attracted to them based on their vibrational frequency. Like attracts like.

Did you ever notice that when you sit down to write a list of that which you are grateful for, it may be slow to start? Then, once you get two or three listed out, it’s like the flood gates have opened or the spigot turned to on. Things to be grateful for come so quickly that you can’t write them down fast enough before the next one emerges.

Friends, what are you choosing to think about today? What do you want to attract more of into your life?

If you find yourself stuck in negative thought patterns, it’s good to have a book around that lights you up internally. The mind can only think one thought at a time. If you can create a shift in the pattern of your thinking you’ll immediately start to go down the other route and those flood gates will open.

You can and ought to try this at home.

And so it is.
