Get Your Magnetic Energy on Your Side

Every human being has access to three kinds of energy. The first is dynamic, which is the energy of doing. You engage it when you work out, write an action plan, clean your desk. The second is receptive, the energy of not doing. You employ it when you practice patience, listen carefully to someone, relax in a hot tub.

The third is magnetic, which is energy that draws toward itself what it wants. You employ it when you set an intention. The more you set out strongly what it is that you desire, the more what you want tends to increase in your life. Why or how this is true is beyond my rational comprehension. But the more I observe, the more I have to conclude that it’s true. Focus on problems and they tend to multiply. Focus on what you want and that tends to increase. Notice I say tends to–it’s not a direct correlation by any means.

We’re not totally in charge here. But according to quantum physics, somehow we do increase potentialities with our magnetic thoughts.

That’s why is such a powerful tool in creating and sustaining change. If you use it daily to set your intention, you will be more likely to get what you want. Often we’re clear on our intention when we set out, but lose focus mid-way. To create the greatest success, keep setting your original intention here and spend a few minutes getting in touch with the feeling or reason you wanted this change to begin with. That will not only help you keep your focus, but you’ll be getting the universe on your side!

To Try: Make sure you are setting or recommitting to your intention on every day, and allow yourself to feel how much you want this change.

It's simple, it' called "Faith"!

There is so much written about the law of attraction. I like this article- qualifying the energy system at work in the human body. Focused intention really works for me. I call it my goal for the day. Some apply this principle but in the deep recesses of their mind, there is doubt. This negates the power of manifesting. One has to have faith too, and what they wish for is actually reasonable. A very broad topic- thank you for this angle and the info on the energy systems. Believe and go for "it".
