Personally, I see the benefits of knowing the Law of Attraction in my life daily.  After more than 20 years of reading, studying, and writing about it, these principles are a well-integrated part of how I see the world.  In other words, you could say I operate from my understanding of universal principles and they’ve become a habitual way of seeing the world for me.

It’s not just about getting more money, a new job, a big house, or a new car for me.  While these things are great, and I appreciate the benefit items such as these provides as much as anyone else, I’m even more grateful for the peace of mind, the personal tranquility, and the refuge from uncertainty my knowledge of these principles provides.

Through my years of studying universal principles I’ve become increasingly sensitive to the appearance of these concepts in the popular culture, on television, in movies, books, in the paper.  What I’ve noticed is that except on rare occasions, you’re not likely to see any direct mention of Law of Attraction in most of our popular media, particularly on television.  That doesn’t mean that evidence of its presence in the popular culture doesn’t exist.  To me, it means that you have to look for the sometimes not so obvious manifestation of these concepts in the popular culture.  It means that maybe what you find when you look is evidence of the change in consciousness. 

The evidence I see could consist of a little less pessimism and a little more optimism; evidence of looking toward solutions rather than being captivated by problems.  Statements that reflect a sense of the abundance of our world regardless of the circumstances one might be personally facing. 

Finding evidence of a shift in our collective consciousness that signals a movement in the direction of an awareness of the abundance within and without can be a tall order, particularly when the media, and especially news programming seems so doggedly intent upon reporting “what is.”  “Tell it like it is,” “reported as it happened,” are the statements that reflect the modern culture’s credo. 

Of course telling the truth is important, and I’m not advocating for lying or being dishonest as a virtue.  But goals require vision and commitment.  To achieve them requires adopting a vision for the future that is more compelling than the signals coming back from our environment that sometimes tell us that our cause is hopeless, foolish, or impossible.  Sometimes you have to look for something other than “what is” to realize your vision. 

This is also the essence of being a deliberate creator; actively taking steps in your lives that are consistent with what you know about universal principles like Law of Attraction.  This knowledge, knowing universal principles is as much about a disciplined way of living your life as it is about “using” Law of Attraction to realize your material dreams. 

It is for this reason that I see knowing and applying what you know about universal principles as a call to transform your consciousness.  To live each moment with the richness and vitality this knowledge can impart to you now, not just in those moments after you’ve acquired the new car, new house, or new job when you’re standing with your desires fulfilled.  This is the evidence I continue to seek. 

I continue to look each day for evidence of the shift in consciousness I know must accompany knowledge and application of these principles.  Looking for it leads me to seeking and finding the best in others. 

Best wishes,
