Law of Attraction Vs Law of Expression?

There is a sutra in the Ancient Gnostic Gospels of St Thomas, where Jesus says:

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

Which I believe has something very interesting… and important.. to say about the whole Manifestation thing.

And how sometimes… Manifestation isn’t just about Attracting…

Sometimes it is much more about Expressing.

Let me explain.

The traditional metaphor for the Law of Attraction… simply put… if you dial up your energy field to the correct vibration, using the specific feeling of what you want to attract… then you become become magnetic to the very situations, things, people, relationships, which are resonating with the same frequency / feeling you are holding.

Of course, there will probably be inner blocks / beliefs preventing you from obtaining, or holding, that specific frequency or feeling, along the way…

But then the path of Manifestation is one of removing those inner blocks, so the said frequency / feeling becomes natural for you… and so the world around you starts to change… and new forms and people are attracted in.

OK, that’s one way of looking at it.

But let’s now look at it from a different perspective.

The perspective of Expressing…

You exist within an infinite and eternal Multiverse… full of different dimensions, different frequencies, different energies.

You cannot ever hope to experience all of them in a single human lifetime.

But you can experience some… a few…

Out of the whole spectrum of what is possible… each lifetime, you choose a small section to explore and embody…

And of those frequencies it is your birth-right to tune into… some you will experience internally

And some you will choose to express externally

Choose to share with the world…

Choose to express outwards

Either through words, images, or through your actions… even the vibe of your very presence which others can feel.

All external expressions

And when you choose to express those frequencies, embody those feelings… then this changes your vibration…

And when you change your vibe… then the world manifesting around you starts to change (has to).

Yes, you guessed it… Expression naturally leads to Attraction…

Which is a different way to look at the whole Manifestation process.

It is then not just about Attracting…

It is more about Expressing…

It is more about Expressing through you part of the infinite potential you have access to.

OK, with both ways, you need to get clear to succeed, that much is the same… clearing out any internal blocks you might have… the very same blocks which prevents you from attracting… can also be the same thing that stops you from expressing…

A concrete dam across your Heart… which prevents the energy flowing out, just as it stops the energy from flowing within…

So if you have a a block to Love… then this block will stop you attracting Love into your life… and more importantly, it will also prevent you from expressing Love outwards into your life…

In a funny way… Attraction and Expression are the two poles of the Magnetic Bar of Manifestation…

To Attract, we must first be willing to Express…

And if we are willing to Express, then we will also be able to Attract…

But what is useful… if you are finding it hard to Attract something you want into your life…

Stand back and think… OK, what am I unwilling to Express… is there something I will holding back from… some energy, aspect of myself, which I am not willing to express, show or share with the world?

Because as Gnostic Jesus once said:

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

You are born to Express, just as much as you are born to Attract.

Final Thought: The Law of Expression tends to get less press then the Law of Attraction… and I think I know why.

The fragile Human Ego can hide behind the Law of Attraction… and believe that it is doing all the work… is the centre of attention… the master player of the game…

But with the Law of Expression, it is much harder for the Human Ego to maintain its pumped up muscles… because Expression is all about realizing how BIG the Multiverse is… how small you are in comparison… and that you are only plugged into… expressing… a small part of infinity / eternity.

With the Law of Attraction… the Human Ego can mistakenly spin stories about how it is the centre of the Universe… but you just cannot do that with the Law of Expression… to make it work, you really must surrender to something much, much bigger then you…

But don’t worry… when you work the Law of Expression… remember, the Universe has your back.
