Quantum physics has proven to us that everything in this world has a vibration and a resonance. Consider this for a moment, if you place two guitars side by side in a room and you play the D string on one guitar you will notice the D string on the other guitar will start to vibrate. The D resonance of the note is matching up on each guitar. This resonance applies to humans as well. If you focus in on the type of energy you are giving out in the world you are most likely attracting that same energy back into your life. Your thought process and level of consciousness resonates out into the world and attracts people and situations that support those same thoughts and consciousness.
Let’s take this a step further and add the Law of Attraction into the equation; the concept of like attracting like. The phrase, “we are the creators of our own reality,” is based on your current energy levels. You will attract whatever matches that level, even if you don’t want to. It is because like energy is familiar and is comfortable. But knowing this doesn’t mean people always want what they attract, because comfortable and familiar are not the same as inspiring and powerful.
What are you experiencing in your life right now that is causing you pain and frustration? How much do you think that has to do with the Law of Attraction?
Your level of consciousness and the energy it produces will actually attract or repel desired or undesired people, work and outcomes in your home and professional life. Bruce Schneider, founder of IPEC Coaching in his book Energy Leadership refers to 2 types of energy that we resonate; anabolic and catabolic energy. He says anabolic energy is constructive and catabolic energy is destructive. “When our mind perceives a threat, anabolic hormones such as testosterone decrease while catabolic hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin increase.” Catabolic energy has a short-term purpose but operating regularly from this energy can ultimately drain and destroy your body cells, leading to sickness and depression. Anabolic energy however is building, healing energy and has the ability to motivate and inspire ourselves as well as others.
There are 7 levels of energy according to Bruce. If you find yourself on level 1, which is the victim level, you can assume your catabolic energy (destructive energy) is pretty high. The closer you get to level 7, which is the self-transcendence level, the higher your anabolic energy (constructive energy). Everyone has an average resonating level of energy that falls somewhere within these 7 levels and can shift up or down depending on how they feel about a situation. No one vibrates at one level at all times. Think of yourself as a stock fluctuating in the daily market. Throughout the day your energy goes up and down. Thoughts and feelings such as non-judgement, gratitude and joy raise the price of your stock while their counterparts, like victimization, anger and blame can easily lower your stock value.
So how do we start changing our energy and what we are attracting into our lives? Bruce suggests a 3 step process:
- Desire – you need to know what you really desire. Be specific as possible and how you will feel when you have it. Create a very clear picture in your mind so it will manifest. For example, if you really want to have more money in your life, be specific on how you want to earn it, what you will do to earn it, and what you will do with it.
- Belief – Believe you can have it and that you deserve it. If you think you don’t deserve something then you won’t have it.
- Acceptance: Be it. Live your life as if you already have it. Follow through with your plan as if you have achieved it. If you desire more money and believe you can have it and deserve it then act and speak as if you have this money already. Use language that is in the now.
Remember, your thoughts determine your feelings and emotions and your feelings and emotions shape your actions. So based on what you think and feel about yourself and the people around you, you create your world. So think about what kind of energy you are projecting out into your personal and professional life. Just like those guitar strings resonating to one another, your energy is attracting like energy. Whether it is anabolic or catabolic energy, start taking notice which one is reflecting back to you and then check-in with your own vibration. They are connected.
