The Magnetic, Attractive Power of the Mind

Written by Remez Sasson

The power of mind draws certain events, circumstances and people into our lives and repels others. In this respect it resembles a magnet. Just look atrepparttar people around you. Some pass through certain events and circumstances, while others pass through different experiences. Some accomplish certain things easily, and others accomplish them with great difficulty or not at all.

Your mind is composed ofrepparttar 122344 thoughts you think. These thoughts are like magnetic currents. If you think positively about some event or action, it turns out to be as you thought about it. If you harbor negative thoughts, this negativity is drawn into your life.

You attract into your life what you think about frequently. It does not mean that every thought gets materialized. Most ofrepparttar 122345 thoughts are weak and are not repeated long enough to gain sufficient strength. Weak thoughts, like a weak magnet, hardly have any attractive power.

You have seen how a magnet draws metal objects. A strong and big magnet draws bigger objects than a small and weak one. Magnets have another peculiar characteristic. One side ofrepparttar 122346 magnet draws, andrepparttar 122347 other side repels.

The power of attraction is a neutral power. The magnet draws to itself everything made of iron, no matter whether it is a useful object or junk. The mind acts inrepparttar 122348 same way. It attracts into your life positive and negative situations and events, according torepparttar 122349 thoughts that you think.

Likerepparttar 122350 magnetrepparttar 122351 mind not only attracts, but also repels. If you do not believe you can get or accomplish something, then you repel it. Thoughts of incompetence, weakness, fear and inferiority create a repellent force. It is as if you are creating a wind that blows away and prevents certain things to reach you.

Hidden in Plain Sight: How to Attract What You Want in Life

"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you." —Rumi

You can't fool Mother Nature. But she sure can fool you. What a beauty she is—wowing us with her spacious skies and purple mountains majesty, and taunting us with her tantalizing tapestries of flora, fauna and frolicking creatures. Fromrepparttar spine-tingling glacial lakes of Alaska torepparttar 122343 heart-warming mystical canyons of Arizona, I've experienced some of her best creations. Nature and I have been very intimate. I felt I knew her secrets. Boy, was I wrong!

I admit, I only wanted her for her looks andrepparttar 122344 way she makes me feel. It never occurred to me that Mother Nature has a deeper, more compassionate, protective side. I ignored her whispers that she has gifts for me—treasures more valuable than gold. And I was blind torepparttar 122345 clues she scattered on my path.

In my youth, if Mother Nature told me her wild birds could guide me back to a lost path, I'd have felt she was nutty as a squirrel. Knowing that I wouldn't listen to her, she sent a skilled sage to get her message through my thick skull. The Native American medicine man asked a simple question: "Did you know that rattlesnakes only bite "civilized" people and leave tribal people alone?" I feltrepparttar 122346 "crazy" shaman had a few rattles loose in his brain. But his words were intriguing. "How could that be?" I wondered. "Why would a snake choose to bite some people and leave others alone?" His preposterous claim haunted me.

Unbeknownst to me atrepparttar 122347 time, this bold assertion propelled my life into a new direction that would take me off my known map into uncharted territory. Mother Nature was luring me in. I wasrepparttar 122348 cat. She wasrepparttar 122349 nip. She was determined to get my attention!

A Helpful Hawk

My first clue torepparttar 122350 guiding, caring aspect of Mother Nature occurred when a bird led me back to a hiking trail I'd lost. I'd gotten about 50 yards offrepparttar 122351 path, heading inrepparttar 122352 wrong direction. Suddenly a bird screeched. Looking up, I spotted a low-flying hawk circling intently over a particular spot. An investigation was in order. When I arrived atrepparttar 122353 spot he was focused on, he flew off. Wow! I found myself standing smack inrepparttar 122354 middle ofrepparttar 122355 lost trail! My winged friend had delivered me back to my path.

Dancing with Danger

Mother Nature had just begun to rearrange my understanding aboutrepparttar 122356 inner workings ofrepparttar 122357 natural world. She arranged for me to experience safety in situations that are usually hazardous for humans. To protect their offspring, wild boar usually attack people who intrude into their space. When I surprised a family of 40 wild boar with babies and they were more curious than hostile toward me. A poisonous scorpion crawled harmlessly over my foot without showing any inclination to sting. During a lengthy close encounter ofrepparttar 122358 wily kind, a pack of coyotes sniffed me, checked me out thoroughly, and then went nonchalantly on their way. And I stomped my foot within an inch of a nesting rattlesnake—without triggering a bite or even a rattle. Now I haverepparttar 122359 confidence to walk—and even sit—peacefully within a couple feet of resting rattlesnakes.

Ah, Mother Nature and my "crazy" medicine man—their ingenious game plan was bearing fruit. The clues I was picking up from my uncharted journey were beginning to form a fresh picture about how life really works. I could now see that situations that appear dangerous are not alwaysrepparttar 122360 case. What other surprises did Mother Nature have in store for me?
