Lying with the Law of Attraction

Lying with the Law of Attraction

I didn’t realize how much I stretched the truth when I was an avid Law of Attraction follower, until this past weekend when I reviewed some of my old correspondence. Reading my own LOA-fueled words was a strange experience. I am thoroughly grateful my mind isn’t permeated with that dogma anymore. In one case, I told my Aber friends that my body changed. I had proof to back it up: I noticed this, then my boyfriend noticed that, and this…

No Law of Attraction Mindset Necessary

No Law of Attraction Mindset Necessary

I had been meaning to call my internet provider. The last deal I secured came to an end a couple months ago, and I didn’t like that my bill was back up to more than $70 a month for nearly the lowest internet package available.  I needed to call and re-negotiate a better deal.  But I was putting it off. Negotiating is not my comfortable place.  Quite the opposite.  But I finally called my provider, and after going back and…

Cult Parallels: Unquestioning Commitment to the Abraham-Hicks Leader and Ideology

Cult Parallels: Unquestioning Commitment to the Abraham-Hicks Leader and Ideology

I cringe to think back on the many past conversations I have had that were centered around the words: “Abraham says…” “Abraham says this about relationships… Abraham says that about money…” Like other devoted followers, I automatically stamped all of Abraham’s proclamations as valid.  Whatever came after “Abraham says” had to be wisdom and truth, in my eyes.  This leads me to the next characteristic I’d like to point out in this series where I compare Abraham-Hicks with known cult…

Digging a Financial Hole with Abraham-Hicks

Digging a Financial Hole with Abraham-Hicks

Now for a question on the mind of many Law of Attraction enthusiasts.  How can I create a “vibration” of abundance and attract more money? Abraham promises a simple and appealing route to financial success: When I was an A-H devotee, I thought there was a simple equation for financial success–for everything in fact:  financial abundance, just like everything else in my life, was simply a factor of my “vibration.”  This was great news, especially since it just so happened…

Abraham-Hicks will teach you how to defy gravity!

Abraham-Hicks will teach you how to defy gravity!

According to one Abraham clip on youtube, gravity is just a perception/belief that has a lot of momentum going.  YOU, the powerful deliberate creator, can defy it: “There is no exception to the premises that you can defy… You can become such a vibrational being that you can experience plenty of life experience that does not include gravity.  And those who are observing you would find you to be complying with their idea of it.  But your personal experience would…

There’s something fishy about Abraham-Hicks.

There’s something fishy about Abraham-Hicks.

And brave you for reading this!  If you are an Abraham follower (an “Aber”) then you have been taught to believe that focusing on anything that contradicts what you want to hear and how you want to feel is BAD for you.  It goes against the primary rule:  feel good, feel good, feel good.  In fact, it supposedly adds that which you don’t want to your “vibration,” muddies your signal to the universe, and thus delays all the positive things…
