The Third Principle: MAKIA (ma-KEE-a): Energy Flows Where Attention Goes
This powerful principle is used in many cultures in the form of meditation. Meditation is simply a state of sustained, focused attention often to accomplish some goal. Hypnosis is nearly identical to deep mediation, although the two have different connotations to the general public.
Your energy follows your attention in a direct proportion. Did you ever see a scientist discussing a new discovery of his on TV? You will notice the excitement and energy in every word as he describes how, after years of relentless work, he discovered a new sub atomic particle. Every fiber in his being was dedicated to his project. It had his full attention and his full energy.
With so much multitasking and information flowing back and forth it is more difficult than ever to focus. Emails, text messages, Twitter, Facebook, and even the old fashioned phone call can break your focus in this day and age.
Focus will provide you with the energy needed to succeed. Focus on the important things such as your family, your financial stability, your health, or whatever is important to you, and you will find the energy of your entire being will also focus on the task, so that you can succeed.
Energy Flows Where Attention Goes…Is your attention in the right place?
