Law of Attraction and Negation?
« on: July 31, 2018, 12:18:20 AM »
Hello,

Recently I have just begun reading The Secret. One thing that stood out to me was the idea of negation. According to The Secret, the universe does not listen to the words "don't" "not" and "no." For example, by saying "I don't have an illness" the Universe ignores "don't" and thinks you're saying "I do have an illness." My question is, would saying you're "free" of something also qualify as a word of negation (i.e., I am illness-free, I am worry-free)? Would saying you're "___-less" also count as a word of negation (i.e., I am worriless)?

Edit: How about positive thinking for things such as acne or unwanted body hair? How would you phrase them without negation?

"I don't have an illness" transforms into "I do have an illness." ? No.

If you don't want an illness you don't already have one so you can remind yourself "I am grateful for my health". If you have one you don't tell yourself "I don't have an illness anymore" instead you utilize the use of positive thinking. Positive thinking can be positive statements / affirmations or some form of positive encouragement like a self help or motivational video on youtube with positive content of sorts for illness.

As long as "I am free from illness" works for you then its likely to work towards your overall well being even without the universes help due to the effect positive thinking has on the mind body connection etc.

There is a difference between wording your intention for the universe which should look like "I am cured from illness" and the example you gave at the end which is I "don't" because that came from as early as mesmerism and hypnosis that it just doesn't work well with positive thinking or in the case of mesmerism trances and the brain all together.

I don't really know for sure how the subconscious interprets these things, but just to be safe, I always use the positive.  If I'm making like a subliminal with recorded affirmations, I word everything in the positive.  Instead of saying "I am socially fearless", I would say "I am socially courageous" instead. 

Instead of saying "I am illness-free", I would say "I am healthy and well".   And instead of saying "I am worry-free", I would say "I have peace of mind". 

I've heard that using negative words can make the subconscious think of those things.  So why make it think about illness and worry when you can just word them in the positive to be safe?

For acne I suppose you could say, "I have clear and beautiful skin".  And for unwanted body hair, I guess you could say "I have smooth skin".   That one's a little harder, but I suppose smooth skin could imply hairless if you wanted it to.

It should draw to the question, asking yourself how you feel when you say "I have abundance" compared to "I am not poor". Having "no" or "not" in your affirmation implies you are still at the stage of getting rid of the things you don't want, in other words it is still putting you in a stage of not having what you want yet.

Hope this can help :)
