Can Medication Apply The Law of Attraction?
Thank you for your program. It is already making a profound change in my life. Please settle a question that was raised by a friend with whom I was sharing your insights. This friend, by the way, has not read your materials.
After sharing with him the benefits of maintaining a positive attitude and a sense of gratefulness, he proposed that that wasn't so hard to do at all. He said that certain medications such as mood elevators could put everyone in a good frame of mind and therefore open to the blessings available.
I do not agree. What is your position on this?

This is an interesting question, and one that I have given much thought. Yes there is medication that is offered to people to help them change their moods and feelings, particularly medications for people who are feeling depressed and helpless, but to answer your question, we would have to take in to account the whole effectiveness of the antidepressant drug.
Although I would never suggest that the use of antidepressant drugs is ineffective, as quite obviously, in severe cases this type of medication could be life saving. What I would question is whether antidepressant drugs deal purely with symptoms, and do nothing to help release the cause of the condition.
There have been many studies conducted that show that the effects of antidepressants have been grossly exaggerated. A major study in 2006 that showed that fewer than 50% of antidepressant users become symptom free, and that many users will often slip back into depression once the use of the drugs has ceased. And other studies have shown that the use of antidepressant drugs for people suffering from mild depression is barely more effective than a placebo effect.
In support of this type of treatment, it is often suggested that depression is caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain, such as serotonin, and there are drugs such as Prozac, that are designed to increase serotonin levels. However, is the lack of serotonin in a depressed persons brain a cause of the depression, or a symptom, and bearing in mind that there is no available test to available to measure a living brains serotonin level, have these drugs any value at all.
It would be rather like me suggesting that a headache is caused by a lack of aspirin, as it is the addition of aspirin that removes the symptom.
So why is it so important that we feel better, and what is our lack of feeling good telling us.
When it comes to the Law of Attraction I would explain to people that they attract to their lives a reality or an experience, that is a match to their focused thoughts and feelings, whether that experience or reality is wanted or unwanted.
Feel joyful, harmonious, hopeful and optimistic, and you will align to a reality that offers a joyful, harmonious, hopeful and optimistic experience.
Feel helpless, depressed, frustrated and pessimistic and you will align to a reality that offers a helpless, depressed, frustrated and pessimistic experience.
As much as our thoughts create our future realities, they also act as an indication of how far from our desires we currently are. For example, if we were experiencing our most wanted desires, we would tend to have a joyful and harmonious focus, if we were on the brink of desires, we would tend to feel hopeful or optimistic, and
if we were along way from experiences that we most want, we could think and feel helpless, depressed, frustrated or pessimistic.
If we think of these moods, feelings or thoughts as a vibration, it is easy to see on vibrational level, how far we actually are from vibrating in harmony with the things we would like to experience.
The further we are away from the vibration of what we desire, the worse we feel.
In Abrahams-Hicks book, Ask & It Is Given
, they refer to this vibrational scale as your Emotional Guidance System, and they describe this scale from a high vibration associated with having your ideals, to a low vibration of being without these experiences, in the following way...
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
22. Fear/ Depression/ Powerlessness
The thing is, that for any particular experience you have in your reality, one of these thoughts and emotions could describe how you are feeling about that experience.
If we tend to think Joy, Love, Appreciation, Passion, Enthusiasm or Eagerness, this would suggest that we were experiencing a reality that either matched, or came pretty close to, our most wanted desires and aspirations. And, as the Law of Attraction aligns us to a reality that matches our predominant thoughts and emotions, we would be aligning to more of these good experiences.
However, if we tend to think Jealousy, Insecurity, Guilt, Unworthiness, Fear, Depression or Powerlessness, this would suggest that we were not experiencing a reality that either matched, or came any where near to, our most wanted desires and aspirations. And, as the Law of Attraction aligns us to a reality that matches our predominant thoughts and emotions, we would be aligning to more of these ‘lacking of’ experiences.
The Emotional Guidance System is a huge part of knowing where we are with any particular subject, whether vibrationaly, we are aligning to the existence of our desires, or the lack of them, and as you become more deliberate with your thought, you can start to adjust your vibration so that you move up the emotional scale to become more closely aligned to the things you want.
But, it must be understood that it would be impossible to jump from a vibration of Anger to one of Hopefulness in one swoop, and the vibrations of Discouragement, Blame, Worry, Doubt, Disappointment, Overwhelment, Frustration, Pessimism, Boredom and Contentment, could all be seen as stepping stones to bring you closer to the matching vibration of your desires.
The trouble that using mood enhancing drugs gives you, is that you lose the guidance. You lose the ability to consciously know where you are vibrationaly, as the drug masks your senses and leaves you feeling better for the moment, when in fact, emotionally you have not moved.
I hope this has made things clearer for you.
