For people who grow up in a church that teaches humility, stripping yourself of pride, and submitting your own will to the will of the Father (God), the very thought of self-empowerment through the law of attraction is ludicrous.  At best it is a silly notion thought up by mortals to make them feel better about themselves.  But at worst, and a legitimate concern for many, is that this very line of reasoning could be blasphemous.  Creating your own life– just the way you want it– does not sound like humbling yourself and accepting the Lord’s will.  From this post we know that our beliefs about our environment filter information that we ultimately accept as reality.  In my last post I pointed out that it is common for people to find contradictions when in reality there is harmony.  Sure enough, when I first discovered the law of attraction, I admit I rejected it as being contrary to what I had learned was truth.  Over time, I have come to the conclusion that true principles can be taught in any number of ways, and that Christ was one of the most effective teachers of the law of attraction that ever lived.  The law of attraction is one of the many laws that God created to govern this earthly experience, and it is ultimately designed to help us turn our lives over to Him.

How exactly to I reconcile these two seemingly contradictory ideas?

The short answer lies throughout the scriptures in verses like “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13), and “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles…” (Isaiah 40:31). Notice the state of the individual who relies on the Lord– she soars like an eagle and can do anything!  This quote by Ezra Taft Benson clarifies beautifully. “Men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He can deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, and pour out peace.”

Ultimately, God’s will is for you to be more happy and more abundant than you ever imagined, even in your grandest dreams.  But how is it done?  How do we submit our will to the Father’s?  We awaken!  We dig deep inside our souls to determine what we want in life and then pray and meditate until we are prompted to move in a certain direction.  Those promptings are guiding you to a life more grand and abundant than you can imagine!  Every one of us is a child of God, and has divinity at the core of our identity.  The better we are able to identify the true desires of that divine aspect of ourselves, the more we will discover that our will has aligned perfectly with the Divine’s.  This is a process that takes time.  We must move through stages of growth to get to the point that we can clearly recognize and follow those promptings.  If we skip steps along the way, it will come back to bite us.  I’ll explain this in greater detail in following posts.

It is our natural course to constantly grow and expand.  God is often referred to as “the universe.”  I think that is very interesting, because I remember from astronomy classes in college that the universe is not only constantly growing, but it is expanding at an ever-increasing pace!  More new stars and planets were created today than yesterday! Isn’t that incredible?  Just as the universe is constantly expanding at an ever-increasing rate, the divine aspect in you, the real you, is designed to grow and expand.  Only through adopting limiting beliefs and counter-intentions can we slow down our growth.  Observe the curiosity and burning desire to grow in every baby who has not yet adopted beliefs that limit and confine.  When a child is not afraid of growth or change, the world is their playground.  Only when we don’t follow our nature do we stop growing and expanding. Somehow he must learn how to become like a little child…

Christ spent his life lifting others.  The focus was always on growth, expansion, faith, truth, light.  Never shrinking, holding back, fear, confusion, or darkness.  Submitting to the will of the Lord will always mean a more abundant and empowered life, and the parables Christ used to teach these principles let us know that we must pass through empowerment to learn genuine submission. 

The complete answer to this question, then, lies in the stages of awakening; victimhood, empowerment, submission, and becoming “one” with the divine.  Stay tuned for the details of each stage.

    Love this message. I loved Ezra Taft Benson quote he is special to me! When I first started being drawn to energy I was fearful of how God felt about it, like maybe I was stepping on his toes(as if I could.) Than I began asking him to teach me. He has constantly been leading and teaching me sense. I still have much to learn but know, he is my author of energy so he needs to be at the center for me. I have learned much from reading your blog and look forward to reading more. I have a small energy buisness I do in my home,but always felt that it needed to be christian based even if the modialites did not always honor God as the author in a way I could understand. You teach plain principles Thank-you. I still have untruths about my self that need to go. They catch me off gaurd at times, I feel coming in contact with your blog has opened some of that up for me. It was also an answer to prayer. Thank-you again I look forward to learning more.
