"Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter."
"Matter is Energy ... Energy is Light ... We are all Light Beings."
"Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it."
I was reflecting on what my energy felt like this week, which lead to the concept of "The Law of Attraction" which sent me down the rabbit hole... I first bumped into Albert Einstein, who states that EVERYTHING is energy. A good place to start! If we are energy, then our thoughts are also energy.
Digging into the philosophy of the "Law of Attraction". Very simply put, "like attracts like". I can embrace this belief that positive thoughts and actions will bring you a positive response and energy and negative thoughts and actions will have a negative result. Anecdotally, I've experienced this "ripple effect".
Continuing down the rabbit hole, I find support in "The Secret", Cognitive Behavioral Therapy principles, teachings by Dr. Joe Dispensa, the concept of Karma, and the Yoga Sutras. I also found articles, arguing against the concept of manifestation and the danger of people believing they can heal themselves or will themselves to abundance.
For me, positive energy and thoughts attracting positive energy and thoughts resonates!
Food for Thought:
How might you recognize and measure the power of your positive thoughts to attract positive energy?
How might you recognize the power of any negative energy or thoughts that you are experiencing?
How might you shift your thoughts or behaviors to bring more positivity to your life?
