I have been reading a very interesting book called Quantum Success written by Sandra Anne Taylor and published by Hay House. I believe it is a powerful and insightful work for anyone who likes to read and learn more about the spiritual aspects of success, happiness and wealth. The first part of the book describes and explains the seven laws of success which, according to the author, are transversal to any human endeavour. In a nutshell, the list includes the laws of Manifestation, Magnetism, Pure Desire, Paradoxical Intent, Harmony, Right Action, and Expanding Influence. I will share a brief description of each one these next.
The Law of Manifestation
This law suggests that we create our own reality from our consciousness. This means that whatever happens in your life can be traced back to your own stream of consciousness and most people are not aware of such human capacity. In fact, many of us perceive reality as something totally random and out of our control. According to this law, we can manage our lives better if we consciously choose where our awareness and attention go. In other words, if we choose to prioritise what is truly important, and life enhancing, then we are shaping and creating our future.
The Law of Magnetism
This law tells us that we attract the same type of energy we emit. This energy is imbued with what we think and feel about ourselves, and it is always flowing outward from us. We are continuously broadcasting information about ourselves and the way we perceive life. Based on the Law of Magnetism, it is within our control to change our energy. If we don’t like the situations or life events we attract, then we must pay attention to the signals we have been broadcasting and change our frequency in order to be more aligned and in tune with what we desire. To produce effective changes, there are three aspects to be aware of: your emotional energy (the vibration of your feelings), your cognitive energy (the vibration of your thoughts), and your physical energy (the vibration of your body).
The Law of Pure Desire
The Law of Pure Desire states that if your intention is pure and therefore not manipulative, fear-based or desperate, then you are in the right energetic vibration to attract and manifest what you desire. Negative emotions and intentions cloud all the potential positive energy you hold toward the accomplishment of your goals and wishes. This happens because negative emotions tend to be more highly charged, fact that has been demonstrated by science countless times. It has been even proposed that we need at least three positive emotions to counteract each negative one.
The Law of Paradoxical Intent
This law resembles the previous one, the Law of Pure Desire. It suggests that the emotional state driven by the reason why we desire something dictates whether we will be successful or not. In other words, this means that if we desire something and yet we feel desperate about it, then we are generating a repulsive vibration and will push away the desired results. If we trust, however, we will generate a more peaceful vibration and therefore pull in the desired results.
The Law of Harmony
By consciously choosing to create balance and alignment in your life, your intuition and personal energy are almost automatically aligned with abundance, opportunities and precious insights, or what Jung called synchronicities. When we are out of harmony, however, we remove ourselves from such a blissful current and we start to stagnate and finding too many hardships. As you may guess, harmony starts with you and your daily choices in terms of thoughts, feelings and actions.
The Law of Right Action
This is one of my favourite laws and, if you are familiar with Buddhism and more specifically with the Eightfold Path, it will ring a bell for sure. According to the Law of Right Action, every bad or good thought or action you engage with will become part of you and leave an impression in your energy field. In order to have a clear energy field, you must listen to your heart and look for the option which resonates with your own personal sense of dignity. It is not always easy to do what is right, but doing what is right is always the option which generates the best for everyone involved.
The Law of Expanding Influence
As you now know from the previous laws, our vibration depends on the quality of your thoughts, emotions and actions. The Law of Expanding Influence basically states that our vibration or resonance influences others and vice-versa. This means our thoughts, moods, sense of wellbeing and choices have an impact on other people’s vibration and energy. Don’t think you are a prisoner of other people’s influence though. Use this knowledge to create and generate what you desire most. For instances, if you want your family’s life to be more peaceful, you must start working on yourself first and become more peaceful. Your energy will then have an impact on your family and you will see that your family’s dynamic will inevitably change as you change as well.
