Posts Tagged ‘Concentration’

Many self help gurus urge us to make lists of our goals in different areas. For instance; our fitness goals, career goals, social goals, family goals, relationship goals. The problem with focusing on several goals is that it dilutes our concentration. Weaker concentration produces delayed results, weaker results or no satisfactory results.

We experience quicker and more powerful results when we concentrate on only one major goal at a time. Such concentration builds power. As the old adage goes; he who chases two rabbits will catch none. Rather than make a list of goals; clarify the one goal which is most crucial, right now, to manifesting the change you seek. This is the goal you need to concentrate on.

Check out the article below for some great tips on how to focus more powerfully on your vision.

Forget multi tasking. Appreciate the beauty of concentrating on one thing at a time. (Anon.)

 

I don’t know how multi-tasking ever got a good name. The reputation of multi tasking is not what it was a few years ago. But some people still see it as a sign of efficiency and a good thing. Every time I think about multi tasking, I am reminded of the old proverb, “If you chase two rabbits, you’ll catch none”.

Even in theory, multi tasking makes little sense. Why would you want to divide your attention and energy two or more ways instead of concentrating on one thing and doing it well? Would you want to see a rock (or pick your favourite musical genre) concert if the musicians talked to their agents while performing? Would you want your surgeon to practice his or her golf swing while operating on someone you love?

I don’t think so. Rather than multi tasking, it is so much more satisfying to get deeply involved in doing one thing in the present moment. You also do a better job.

Many authors and coaches advise working on several desires at once. For instance; social desires, romantic desires, financial desires, career desires, family desires etc.  This approach is not ideal. When we concentrate on our desire, we invite it into our life. The more strongly we concentrate on a desire, the stronger the invitation we send to it.

If we concentrate on more than one desire at a time, we divide our concentration. Thus our invitation, to ALL our desires, is weakened and made less urgent. The law of attraction responds to our divided concentration by giving us weaker and delayed manifestations of our desires or no significant manifestations at all.

As the old saying goes, he who chases two rabbits catches none. Concentration creates power; while dissipation produces weakness. Laser like focus on one key touchstone desire at a time brings the quickest, most powerful and gratifying results.

If we give it even a moment of thought; it’s obvious that holding grudges hurts us and not those we hold grudges against. After all, they’re likely partying, dancing, vacationing and romancing while we elevate our blood pressure and damage our health grudging against them. Moreover, we are probably the last things on their minds. So we need to let go of grudges for our sake; not for the sake of those we hold grudges against. They likely couldn’t care less how we feel.

Forgiveness is often recommended. However, it simply doesn’t work. The Law of Attraction clearly explains why forgiveness doesn’t work. When you forgive someone; you can’t escape the implication that they done you wrong. After all, what did you forgive them for? Thus forgiveness always carries the wrong they supposedly did you. Every time you think about forgiving them, you also think of the wrong. The Law of Attraction assures your concentration on the wrong brings more such negative concentration and more negative experiences to match it.

So what can you do that is more effective than forgiving?

The answer is to wish everyone well simply because that is what you do. Just as the sun shines because that is what it does. The sun shines without prejudice on people, dogs, cats, rocks, snakes and rats. It doesn’t decide to shine on some but not on others. That is the attitude you need to adopt. Wish everyone well because that is what you do.

How do you do this in the real world?

This may sound good in theory. How do you do it in the real world?

Make a suggestion such as:

“I (Your Name) wish every one in the world well including….”

At this point, you recite a long list of people you wish well for, such as friends, relatives, acquaintances, coworkers etc. Sandwich the name(s) of the person(s) you find it more difficult to wish well somewhere in the middle of the list. If you are having trouble wishing well for more than one person, divide their names among the names of those you have no trouble wishing well.

At first, you may find it strange and revolting to wish some people well. However, with repetition, it will feel increasingly natural. In time, you will weaken and eventually dissolve the grudge. Moreover, you will acquire a valuable habit with lifetime benefits for your peace of mind.

  Example:           The Law of Attraction brings you more of what you CONCENTRATE ON.

The words “concentration” and “concentrate on” often come up, in discussions on the Law of Attraction. What does it really mean to “concentrate on” our desire?

In the Law of Attraction, “concentration” has a somewhat different meaning from the usual one. When we speak of “concentrating” on our desire; we don’t mean forcing ourselves to think about it, staring at pictures of it or studying it for hours on end. Such as one might concentrate on the flame of a candle.

We mean loving our desire and welcoming it into our life. A good analogy is the passionate feelings new lovers have for each other. They typically concentrate on each other in a pleasurable relaxed way. Rather than a forced studious way.

Concentration can also be negative. Negative concentration involves a worrying obsession with something we don’t want in our lives. You can tell whether your concentration is positive or negative by how you feel. If you feel good about your thoughts about your desire; your concentration is positive. If you do not feel good about them, you are concentrating on what you don’t want.  Negative feelings are a strong sign you need to change your concentration from what you don’t want to what you want.  Feelings such as relaxation, excitement and happiness reveal you are in a good state of concentration to manifest your desire.

The problem with trying to fix what we don’t like is that it steers our concentration to things we don’t desire. The Law of Attraction responds to our concentration by bringing more, of what we don’t desire, into our lives. For instance:

By attempting to quit smoking, we concentrate on what we don’t want: smoking. This reinforces the undesired habit.

By urging our partner to stop doing things which annoy us, we concentrate on those undesired things. Thus we get more of them.

By trying to end feelings of poverty and lack, we concentrate on lack, so we get more lack to concentrate on.

It is much more helpful and effective to concentrate on expanding what we do like. To do this; find experiences of what you desire that you enjoy right now and concentrate on them.

Concentrate on expanding your current healthy habits, rather than on quitting smoking.

Concentrate on, and praise, those things you like about your partner, rather than urging them to stop doing things you don’t like.

Concentrate on the abundance you enjoy right now (eg. food, water, good health, good relationships, etc.), rather than trying to end lack and poverty.

This concentration on what you desire causes it to expand so that you experience more and more of what you desire in your life. Which is exactly what you want.

For our purposes, “concentration” has a slightly different meaning than the usual one. When we speak of “concentrating” on something; we don’t mean forcing ourselves to think about it or staring at it intently. We mean becoming fascinated, obsessed with and/or love the subject of our concentration. A good analogy is the passionate feelings new lovers have for each other. They typically concentrate on each other, in a pleasurable relaxed way. This is an excellent model for how to concentrate on your desire.

Concentration can also be negative. Negative concentration involves doubting our desires will be manifested, a worrying fascination or obsession with something we don’t want in our lives etc. You can tell whether your concentration is positive or negative by how you feel. If you feel good about your concentration, your concentration is positive. If you do not feel good about it, you are concentrating on what you don’t want.  Negative feelings are a strong sign you need to change your concentration from what you don’t want to what you want.  Feelings such as relaxation, excitement and happiness reveal you are in a good state of concentration, which draws your desire into your life.
