Today I discuss law of attraction. I discuss it in religious, spiritual and scientific terms. I personally have experienced law of attraction and today I share that with you.
hi guys happy Friday today I'm doing a video that's a bit different to the usual videos that I do because one I've wanted to do for a really really long time and that's Law of Attraction and mental health I want to take you back to when I was 24 and I was told by my doctors that I was infertile and that I wouldn't have children I cannot even explain the devastation I felt I'd always dreamt of being a mom and all of a sudden having that taken away from me I was left so distraught I actually attempted suicide now it was about a week after my attempt that my therapist sat me down and she said to me shereena I want you to write me a letter of how life is for you today but don't write it as in today write it as if it's in ten years from now so I'd forgotten all about this letter but I'm still in contact with my old therapist and we talked about it the other day I thought oh yeah so basically it was probably quite a long letter I'm gonna really shorten it and I basically per dear Yolanda life is really really good I have four children two boys and two girls and I live by the sea and I have just been signed by a publisher and I have a book coming out fast forward 12 years and all those things have manifested in my life that is my reality now bearing in mind I've just been told I was infertile if I still wrote I have four children I have no way of knowing the sexes of my children I wrote two boys and two girls which is what I have I lived two hours from the nearest sea and I've never written a book before so what is that how did those things manifest in my life and that's what I want to talk about today I'm the sort of person that likes to know the science behind things I for those of you who know me you know I do not follow any really but I am spiritual I believe we are more than just a physical being I have a higher power there will be some of you out there that are spiritual because you can be spiritual with no religion religious people tend to be spiritual so maybe you're religious maybe you follow a religion maybe you're not you maybe you're just into the science so I kind in this video I'm going to touch on spirituality religion and also the science I will start with the science because it's the more complex bit I suppose law of attraction says that our thoughts give out vibration remotion give out a vibration science tells us that everything in our universe is in a constant state of vibration the Stars the planets you me the cat the sand outside the ground this check things that we look at and we see a solid are actually in a constancy of vibration our thoughts give off the vibration our emotions give off a vibration colors seem different colors they're just different variations of vibration there's an experiment done called the double slit experiment I won't go right into it here but basically in a lamp they realized just by observing sub-atomic particles these particles changed just by us observing them so surely if we're just looking at something as something we can make something change we are no longer just observers we are creators I'm gonna read you a quote because the thing is law of attraction is really popular at the moment and people like Esther and Jerry Hicks and have written about it there's the secret the book the secret film the secret and it's really gained popularity but it is not new me all the religions actually talk about law of attraction I like I said I don't follow a religion but I'm gonna read a quote it's from the Christian Bible and it's proverbs 23 point 7 as a man thinks in his heart so is he thinks in his heart surely you'd think thinking would come from him now here's the interesting thing I don't listen it down the heart's neural circuitry enables it to act independently of the brain there is basically a network and intricate network in our heart that is the same as our brain it's now known that our heart can sense it can feel it can learn it can remember we used to think that the brain was the one sending all the signals to the heart telling the heart what to do we now know this isn't the case the car sends probably more signals to the brain and not only that the brain of baize what the heart says what do you think has the largest magnetic field in our body what organ in our body has the largest electrical field in our body see I thought it was our brain but it's not it's a heart scientists have actually measured and we have an electric magnetic field from our heart that's generated from a heart that goes out a few feet around us it's also now shown that if two people stand in close proximity those fields mean and energy is transferred from one person to another so this got me thinking about shamanic healing is this how healing happens it's that feeling from the heart and if we have a magnetic field around us because when you see spiritual healers they all I put their hands near someone's body but don't actually touch them so is it this field now I've been looking into shamanic healing because those you know now my brother was diagnosed with spinocerebellar ataxia basically the cerebellum the part of the back of his brain that's responsible for motor skills like movement talking etc is degenerating so he's in a wheelchair a lot at the time now is very difficult to understand what he's saying so I have been kind of looking other methods of a cure because science says there is no cure there's nothing they can do so I've been looking into semantics healing and seeing that miracles actually happen people that have been diagnosed with incurable cancer have been cured of cancer I'm going to go back to the Bible quickly like I said not religious so I hope you're not thinking I'm just bashing it with the Bible but the thing is I'm not I'm interested in all old texts from all different religions because the fact is they're really really old and someone did write them all that time ago where they you believe what they wrote or you don't believe what they wrote you're into religion or you're not someone wrote them and it was a long time ago so this isn't a Christian Bible again mark 9:23 if thou can believe all things are possible to him that believeth Matthew 21:22 and all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer believe that you riptile receive it and it will be yours I'd rent down a crow it says it's quote from Buddha what we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow our life is the creation of our mind science quantum quantum mechanics says reality is what we choose it to be I've always wondered cuz I have friends that have religious different religions I also have a friend who I say witchcraft and people got a cult bad but she's a white witch and she believes that she can cast spells out she will like handles and do things at certain times of the lunar month and I've always been amazed at how things seem to happen for her the same with my friends that are really into their religion things can happen for them how is this what how with some people they can seem to manifest things and others just calm they all seem different one thing that whether someone is religious or spiritual believes in the law of attraction one thing they have in common is belief they believe they believe it and it got me thinking about me all those years ago I believed that I would have the life that I have today I did not know how to get there I was not in recovery at this point I was in a really dark place but I just had this belief in me that everything would be okay and that's why I think people that pray they believe it it says in the quote I just read if thou can't believe all things are possible to him that believeth the other quote and all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer believe that you shall receive it and it will be yours it's the same as Law of Attraction they say if you believe you can't just think of them you've got to believe it cuz if you don't you can't manifest it now it's no surprise to me that marsha linehan when she developed DBT dialectical behavioral therapy for borderline personality disorder that she included mindfulness which is a spiritual practice mindfulness is a core skill taught whether it's in distress tolerance whether it's interpersonal effectiveness whether it's managing your emotions mindfulness is taught it is a core skill of DBT 12-step fellowships they first came round with the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous it's a spiritual program the house ins possibly millions of people all over the world have recovered from alcoholism drug addiction gambling eating disorders through going through the 12 steps and that's all the 12 steps are a spiritual way of living it's taking responsibility when we've done something wrong and making amends for it saying sorry helping others because here's the thing I don't believe that we can just sit there and think yeah I'm gonna have the best car and I'm gonna have a wonderful house but I'm not going to do anything I believe we have to put in the action we can't just sit around I think everything we want will come to us we have to we have to do something back then when I wrote that letter I didn't just sit there and think yeah I got our four kids I'm gonna go there from there I went on medication to help me with the facility I go into recovery it took a while but I did it and so I didn't just sit around and do nothing now when we think of the law of attraction and mental health the law of attraction says if we're putting out negative thoughts we feel negative negatives going to come back to us but if this why we constantly struggle because our self-talk is tends to be pretty negative and because our self-talk is negative we feel negative and then we have this horrible life where we just feel like we're in hell and we have no way out it doesn't help them not only do we have these negative thoughts and feelings they are extremely intense and so we have this roller coaster ride of a negative life not knowing how to stop it in mental health you see all the time positive affirmations say positive affirmations isn't this law of attraction again I am a happy person I am a good person I am successful we're saying these positive things over time we begin to feel these positive things and eventually that becomes our reality we are happy we are successful and it's no different and so I think the law of attraction can work whether it is you are religious and you pray or you purposefully write down your intention and practice the law of attraction right Daniel intention and believe it's come true when it comes true I don't think it matters what method is it's having that belief that it can work and it can work for you did you know I never knew this but we can actually have negative beliefs about ourselves and negative thoughts passed down to us biologically from our pair so old generations that have had these strong negative beliefs they can actually get passed down genetically so even though we've never experienced whatever is this negative thing it's passed down to us and we believe it and I think this is why it's so important that we do start questioning our beliefs quest like these core beliefs that we've grown up with and for example it might be I shouldn't show emotion or all men or women are going to cheat whatever it is we've got to start becoming consciously aware of it mindfulness teaches us to become consciously aware of the present moment and to look at things non-judgmental e-naught this is good this is bad just feel it let it go and I think this is key for our mental health because we don't like feeling like this who wants to be severely depressed who wants to have problems in all their relationships we don't want that we don't choose to have that and yeah our thoughts continue to kind of keep us in that cycle our thoughts and therefore our feelings so I kind of wanted to share with you that yeah you can create your own reality but you can't do it from doing nothing one believe in it believe that you can science has shown us like I said at the beginning just from scientists in a lab observing a subatomic particle that particle changed they didn't do anything to it they just looked at it so science tells us that quantum mechanics tells us reality is what we choose it fear what are we created so I kind of really wanted to share this with you and I wanted to say just to believe please that you can recover from this I've been there and I got through it you can - I can't tell you how to do that but I can tell you believe that you can don't sit around thinking it would just happen put in the action if that's learning new skills to help us manage our emotions do it that's why tit practice positive affirmations no you won't believe them to start with I didn't as I used to feel like a complete idiot saying positive things about myself because I didn't believe it but the more I said it eventually over time it became not a subconscious thought it was just there in my brain I wasn't consciously thinking of it's subconscious and then I started feeling it and then it became my reality if any of you want me to do another video maybe going into more detail on a different aspect of this I'm more than happy to do that now but I wanted to put it out there and see what you guys think I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I love you all those
