I'm starting a new series on YouTube called "This is Changing My Life." The first video in this series is focused on learning about universal intelligence and universal laws and what that has to do with creating the life I am most wanting.
The intention behind this post and video is to share something that has shifted my perspective regarding how the world works, and has given me a new sense of empowerment, in the hopes that it might also resonate with others. I want to provide you with an overview of my understanding of what I’ve been learning about as well as resources that can explain it more fully for anyone who is interested.
It’s not a cult or a religion and I definitely am not pushing it on anyone, I’m simply sharing what’s been helping me in this life, as that’s what my channel is about.
I’m going to be talking about my understanding of how the universe works, the law of attraction, and our intuition and how all of this relates to making our dream lives reality.
I’m going to explain everything in the best way I can based on how I currently understand it to be.
I’m going to share with you the key concepts I’ve been learning about that I find most useful in understanding how it all works. Of course I can’t say this is 100% truth, but out of all of the theories and philosophies out there, this is really the only one that makes any sense to me. In addition, I feel like only good can come from putting these concepts to use. Looking back on my life experiences, it’s easy for me to see that this is how I’ve gotten what I’ve gotten.
What We Are
From what I understand at this moment, we are a physical extension of a greater, nonphysical consciousness, or what is also sometimes called our inner being. We chose to come into this physical experience in order to expand, as we are part of the universe and the universe is eternally expanding. We are here in the physical to experience freedom and joy.
Our emotions are what guide us through this physical experience. When we experience a positive emotion we know we are moving in the right direction as far as keeping up with our inner being, which has already become all that our physical selves aspire to become.
When we experience a negative emotion, our intuition is telling us we’re moving away from what we want. It is said that the way to become all that we are meant to become is to follow the river downstream and do what feels good and like relief, rather than to try to paddle upstream and effort our way through resistance to an outcome.
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction says “that which is like unto itself is drawn.” We are magnets that are attracting that which we are feeling and thinking. In this way, through our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions, we are creating our own life experiences. When we are feeling poor, we cannot attract financial abundance. When we are feeling abundance, we cannot attract poverty.
Of course it’s natural to think how if you could create your own reality, you would not have created the negative aspects you’re experiencing or have experienced in the past. This is where some people like to say that the Law of Attraction is “victim blaming.” But like the law of gravity, it is always present whether or not you’re conscious of it. It’s possible to unintentionally create negative experiences and situations if you don’t know how you’re getting what you’re getting.
My favorite source for this information says, “Without exception, that which you give thought to, you begin to invite into your experience… If you stay focused on it long enough it absolutely, under all conditions, will be yours.”
Whether you’re thinking about what you do want or what you don’t want, the universe only hears the thing, not if you do or don’t want it. Whether you’re thinking, “I don’t want to get sick,” or “I do want to get sick,” the universe only hears the sick part. If you’re thinking, “I want to have perfect physical health,” the universe hears the part about health. In addition, feeling the emotion of sickness is putting out a vibration to which sickness is attracted. Feeling the emotion of perfect physical health puts out the vibration to which wellness is attracted.
We get what we think about, speak about, act about, and feel strong emotion about whether we want it or not.
The Law of (Deliberate) Creation
Step 1: The wanting of it
Step 2: The allowing of it and expecting it
Nothing will come into your experience unless you invite it through emotional thought and great expectation.
Actions are an extension of your thoughts and feelings. They say to take action in joy to create the experiences you want. This has to do with getting into alignment, which I’ll speak more on soon.
The Law of Allowing
Allowing others to be who they are and do what they do with love rather than tolerance or putting up with it, which still implies resistance is present.
Diversity of desires and experiences causes more universal expansion. Of course there is a lot of destructive action in this world taken out of fear, lack, anger, etc. When we focus on that we create more of it. When we focus on what we do want, we create more of that.
We’re in the optimal state for creating what we do want when we are experiencing joy and great positive emotion. This is also called being in alignment. It implies that we are aligned with our inner beings; thinking, feeling, speaking, and acting as if we already have what we are wanting, and thus matching the vibration of that which we are wanting.
It is recommended to prioritize getting into alignment as often as you can in order to feel great, but to also be at the vibration necessary to bring what you want into your actual experience. It means feeling the positive emotions and thinking the thoughts you’d feel in the having of what you want, before you actually have it.
Taking aligned action is much easier than struggling one’s way to a result. For example, it’s much easier for me to organize my thoughts and create this post when I am in a good headspace, feeling excited about the day and about life than it is when I am feeling tired, uninspired, and not into doing it. And of course the quality is better than it would be if I was forcing myself to get it done.
Everyone is different and has different desires and enjoys different things, so naturally getting into alignment will look different for each person. I’m still learning about what gets me into my highest alignment. So far I’ve found that listening to or watching videos about this topic gets me feeling empowered as does listening to high vibe music and following what feels good in the moment when I feel that it’s possible. I also feel empowered and inspired after watching or reading about a person who has created the life they are wanting. For some people, it might help to exercise or read or go for a walk or hang out with their cat or play some music, etc.
I think I’ve been trying to get to this place through the work I’ve been doing with applying minimalism, using the journal, and focusing on values and habits.
1. If you’ve watched the documentary The Secret or read the book of the same name by Rhonda Byrne, you would be familiar with some of these ideas. You might also notice that some of the more, let’s say, unconventional details have been left out of that material.
The documentary and book are partly based on the teachings of Abraham Hicks. Abraham Hicks is my favorite source for this information. Abraham was originally in the movie The Secret, but was cut out for fear of the mainstream audience not being ready for it.
So who is Abraham? Abraham Hicks is not a person. Abraham Hicks is the name of a nonphysical entity, a collection of consciousness, that gives blocks of thought to a woman named Esther Hicks, who translates it into words and expresses it for all of us to hear. Some people call this channelling. Can you see why Rhonda might have left this part out of The Secret?
Oprah talked so much about The Secret on her television show back when it first came out. I just re-watched both episodes and there is definitely a lot of great information there.
So Oprah talked a lot about the concepts but was also afraid to have Abraham on her television show for fear that the mainstream audience just wasn’t ready for it, so she interviewed Abraham speaking through Esther on Oprah Radio. Oprah calls Abraham “the secret behind The Secret.”
Abraham call themselves Abraham because it’s the name of a teacher, and the last name is Hicks because they work with Esther Hicks and her late husband Jerry Hicks. To put it simply, basically Esther just quiets her mind and is able to access Abraham.
Over the many years they’ve been speaking and giving lectures with Abraham, they have spoken on basically every topic you could ever wonder about; relationships, disabilities, career, health, etc. There are hours and hours of footage of Abraham on YouTube and hours and hours of audiobooks available on Audible. There are some free audio tracks of Abraham speaking on the general concepts on their website, which is linked here.
I am convinced that Abraham is who they say they are after watching so many videos and listening to so many of their books. There is no way any human can be so consistent and clear with the information given. I also just think about how weird life is in general and how everything in the universe is made of the same material so why not? And again, I see it play out this way in my own life and the lives of the ones most close to me.
2. Another resource I’m going to mention is the podcast “The Lively Show.”
So it was the “The Lively Show” that made me reconsider my position on the Law of Attraction after the host, Jess, explained all the aforementioned details that made more sense to me than the surface level explanations I had seen on YouTube.
Jess also has been applying these concepts in her own life for the past 19 months and just had an episode talking about how her life has been since doing so. I highly recommend giving this podcast a listen if you’re at all interested in what intentionally applying LOA might actually look like.

I hope that maybe even one of you have found this information to be helpful. If it doesn’t resonate with you, I don’t take it personally.
I’d love to hear about your personal experiences with this universal law in the comments below if you have any!
