What does it mean to be magnetic? Consider this not in the context of charismatic personality but in the scientific context of very specific elemental attraction. A quick survey of online dictiionaries providesn interchangeable definitions, but this one from the American Heritage dictionary stands out because of its unique modifer
1. An object that is surrounded by a magnetic field and that has the property, either natural or induced
This confirms that the ability to attract desired energy into our lives is not necessarily innate. We can will ourseves to operate within the laws of attraction and in essence reconstruct our outlook and our lives.
I'll give credit where it's deserved. The multi-million dollar bestseller The Secret invited millions of readers to open to the possibility of creating abundance through the laws of attraction, and it worked for mass consciousness with testimonials from mulitple now-prosperous authors and entrepreneurs sharing personal stories of reward . But let's go beyond physical acquisition and achievment and elevate our intention above the material. And let's try this without directing the specific path of defined result. Are we sure it's a new job or house or larger paycheck we need? By limiting ourselves to physical manifestation, are we limiting our soul's growth?
Instead, let's try to trust the Universe to determine the flow and form of transformation that will work for our highest benefit. Perhaps our greatest growth lies in understanding that self healing is incomplete if we are not equally focused on healing the world as a whole. The shift in consciouness alone -- the hands-off-the--wheel for the greater good of all -- will yield intangible rewards that last lifetimes for multitudes.
The world is a rough place with too many countable sorrows to which we are susceptible both by direct experience and osmosis. So let's use our magnetic ability to summon Light and induce a planetery energy shift, allowing the Universe to bless us with individual Light rations in the most appropriate way.
Here's a simple visualization to use your heart center as a Light magnet:
Begin with a few long, deep breaths,, feeling relaxed with each one. When you inhale, thinkg "LIGHT" and when you exhale, release negativity, stress, whatever weighs you down. Each breath brings you more Light. Feel yourself tingle with each inhale. Feel the Light concentrate in your heart center, filling with Light. See it as attracting and pulling in all the light around you, the light from the Universe.
Feel your heart center growing so full with Light that you cannot contain it. You become a magnet for light, love, and harmony....and all of that light energy now emerges from your heart center and extends to all the beings around you. Put all those who need healing in the center of that Light. Go to the hard places; send light to those who cause earthly suffering. Be generous with your Light. Magnetize all.. What you wish for yourself, wish for all beings.
Let this be a continuting chain of induced magnetic transformation. Namaste.
