Good day, fellow Alchemists:
The process of manifesting your desires has in it, a wide range of loopholes that are at times difficult to navigate. One such loophole is the phenomena of polarity and how it glues you into a particular reality. You see Alchemist, your negative beliefs are attracting more of the circumstances you do not want in your life, despite your best efforts to focus on what you actually want.
The Law of Polarity explained within The Seven Hermetic Principles teaches us that two things that appear to be opposites are varying degrees of the same thing and are inseparable. The same applies to everything you want to manifest in your life; the negative and positive aspects of any particular manifestation are one and the same. Therefore, when trying to manifest a desire into existence, you manifest that which you are more aligned to, which more often than not, is negative.
If one wishes to manifest financial abundance and is solely focused on the thought of having more, they will bring into existence both the potential for being wealthy and poor. Since all opposites are just varying degrees of one another, this creates a nexus of unwanted happenings as a result of what was originally a positive force of attraction. With this in mind, it may seem like there is little chance of consciously creating your intended outcome without first changing your negative subconscious beliefs, but this is not the case.
There is a very simple method of mental focus that can help you by-pass your negative beliefs and free your subconscious mind to attract and create those circumstances you actually want to experience. The secret is knowing when to focus on what you want and when not to; and in the case of the latter, knowing what to focus on instead. You should focus on what you want when your underlying belief is positive, and you should not focus on what you want when the underlying belief is negative.
For example, if you would like to shed some extra weight, don't imagine yourself being thin, for that will only trigger your negative reactions which will manifest the opposite of what you want. Instead, focus your mind on exercising. This will have a neutral effect on your mind, allowing you to manifest it more directly into existence and, as a result, you will lose weight thanks to the exercise.
This, of course, is just one example. The principle of polarity can be used in a variety of methods when it comes to manifesting.
Take some time to experiment with different manifesting goals that vary in difficulty and see how it changes the outcome.
With love and sincerity,
