Vibration, the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction are powerful principles described by Napoleon Hill. In the last two posts we have looked at the Subconscious mind and Faith. Napoleon Hill believes that the subconscious mind provides a link with Infinite Intelligence and all other minds (Law of Attraction). But to see how the subconscious mind communicates with the Infinite Intelligence is important. Here is how Napoleon describes the dynamic behind the Law of Success which is also known as the Law of Attraction.
“Comes now a very significant statement of truth:
THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS, CONSTITUTE A ‘MAGNETIC’ FORCE WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE VIBRATIONS OF THE ETHER, OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS. A thought thus “magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which, when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over again, until that which was originally one small seed, becomes countless millions of seeds of the SAME BRAND!” (p.72) (Law of Attraction)
This description by Hill of the law of attraction which is essential to the Law of Success was written in the late 1930’s and edited out of many editions of Think and Grow Rich. Editors did not believe that the mass public would want to hear about vibrations and ether. These same principles were edited out of The Secret. Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based upon the same principles.
“The ether is a great cosmic mass of eternal forces of vibration. It is made up of both destructive vibrations and constructive vibrations. It carries at all times, vibrations of fear, poverty, disease, failure, misery; and vibrations of prosperity, health, success, and happiness, just as surely as it carries the sound of hundreds of orchestrations of music, and hundreds of human voices, all of which maintain their own individuality, and means of identification through the medium of radio.” (Law of attraction)
“From the great storehouse of the ether, the human mind is constantly attracting vibrations which harmonize with that which DOMINATES the human mind. Any thought, idea, plan, or purpose which one holds in one’s mind attracts, from the vibrations of the ether, a host of its relatives, adds these ‘relatives’ to its own force, and grows until it becomes the dominating, MOTIVATING MASTER of the individual in whose mind it has been housed.” (Law of Success)
Essentially Napoleon Hill is saying the same as the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like. If you hold prosperous thoughts, you will attract prosperity. If you hold scarcity thoughts as your dominant vibration, you attract scarcity. Law of Success is built around this magnetic principle. Positive thinking is not the purpose of the Law of Success. Holding positive thoughts are the necessity to attract more positive results – which is the main theorem in Law of Attraction.
In the chapter on the Subconscious Mind, Napoleon Hill once more speaks of how the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success works. He says:
“less than a hundred years ago, men believed the space between the planets to be nothing but a great void, a stretch of dead nothingness. Now thanks to this same power of FAITH, men know that far from being either dead or a void, the space between the planets is very much alive, that it is the highest form of vibration known, excepting, perhaps the vibrations of THOUGHT. Moreover, men know that this living, pulsating, vibratory energy which permeates every atom of
matter, and fills every niche of space, connects every human brain with every other human brain.” (Law of Attraction)
Hill is saying the same thing Wattles says in the Science of Getting Rich. The Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based on vibration and an intelligent universe. Both men outline the principles as they understood them in the 20’s and 30’s.
All matter is energy (Einstein). All matter is vibration. Source is in every particle. Source is Intelligent. Source hears our prayers and our thoughts. Vibration is drawn to like vibration. The reason Law of Success and Law of Attraction works, is that Source is connected to all. Source sends back ideas, and intuitions. Source can arrange coincidences and serendipity for people to meet or have like mind.
Listen to more of Hill’s description of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.
“What reason have men to believe that this same energy does not connect every human brain with Infinite Intelligence?” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)
“There are no toll-gates between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence. The communication costs nothing except Patience, Faith, Persistence, Understanding, and a SINCERE DESIRE to communicate…..” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)
“The method by which you may communicate with Infinite Intelligence is very similar to that through which the vibration of sound is communicated by radio. If you understand the working principle of radio, you of course, know that sound cannot be communicated through the ether until it has been “stepped up,” or changed into a rate of vibration which the human ear cannot detect. The radio sending station picks up the sound of the human voice, and “scrambles,” or modifies it by stepping up the vibration millions of times. Only in this way, can the vibration of sound be communicated through the ether. After this transformation has taken place, the ether “picks up” the energy (which originally was in the form of vibrations or sound), carries that energy to radio receiving stations and these receiving sets “step” that energy back down to its original rate of vibration so it is recognized as sound.” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)
The Law of Attraction and Law of Success are based on vibration. In Hill’s model, the subconscious is our “Radio station.” What is being broadcast out of the subconscious is very important. Old beliefs and repetitive thinking go into the subconscious. Some strategies will be talked about in future posts (EFT or Tapping). Where we put our attention is what we draw to us. This is a fundamental principal of Law of Attraction and Law of Success. If we focus on how little money we have then we attract more lack of money. This is a crucial factor in Law of Attraction and Law of Success. This understanding of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success is extraordinarily important right now. Today. When everywhere we look and hear messages about the economy we are influenced by other’s thoughts and perceptions. If our focus is on “what is” – the slow down, the recession – then it is a guarantee that more of the same will happen. The Law of Attraction guarantees that if the national public focuses on a depression, it will happen.
As we are all influenced greatly by what is being said around us, it is paramount to understand this principle of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success. What to do? Read the section under strategies. Practice imagining having what you do want, and what it will be like when it arrives. The Law of Attraction listens to the Subconscious. If you are imagining – and that is the only way to get those thoughts into the Subconscious – what you desire, then you are vibrating differently than when you are focused on lack. The Law of Success places much emphasis on optimism – which is a vibratory frequency more in alignment with Success.
But let’s go back to Napoleon Hill who wrote Think and Grow Rich as a direct answer for people who were coming out of the Great Depression. He took great pains to delineate the Law of Success and Law of Attraction to help that generation who were lost in fear.
“The subconscious mind is the intermediary, which translates one’s prayers into terms which infinite Intelligence can recognize, presents the message, and brings back the answer in the form of a definite plan or idea for procuring the object of prayer. ….Before your prayer will reach Infinite Intelligence,…it probably is transformed from its original thought vibration into terms of spiritual vibration. Faith is the only known agency which will give your thoughts a spiritual nature.” (Law of Success, Law of Attraction)
To summarize the past few posts to more fully understand the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction:
The subconscious is our connecting Link with Infinite Intelligence.
The subconscious mind is fed by habit.
You can consciously “feed” the subconscious with thoughts mixed with
Faith, Burning Desire, Powerful emotions, Imagination.
These ideas can be submitted to the subconscious only through Imagination.
Prayers are this kind of “conscious feeding”
The state you are in when you pray determines the result.
Pray with Faith and Expectancy. (Ask and it is Given)
Imagine that you already in possession of that which you desire.
Thoughts and Images are things.
The Universe arranges itself around you based on your vibration.
If you vibrate scarcity and poverty – you get more of it.
If you vibrate abundance and plenty – you get more of it.
What you focus upon is what you attract to yourself magnetically.
Every particle of the Universe is intelligent.
Einstein says the most important question there is:
Is the Universe friendly or not?
You get to pick. What kind of life do you want to have? I focused on poverty and lack most of my life. I decided that I had had enough. The Universe definitely provided me what I had been focusing on and the stories I had been telling myself and others. I much prefer feeding myself images created in the 17 second process – a strategy from the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.
The Law of Success and the Law of Attraction want you to have what you want. The Universe will provide it to you as you imagine it to be. You get to apply a little will power and choice to what you think about. The Universe is waiting for you to apply the Law of Success and the Law of Attraction in whatever way you wish.
Tomorrow we will talk about states of being and how they affect our vibration. The vibration that we are emitting governs the effect we receive from the Law of Attraction and the Law of Success.
