Many (most) have no idea what the difference is between an initiation and an attack. It’s the same for emanations and attractions. With the popularity of the law of attraction and The Secret, it is easy to understand how (and why) so many are confused about the reality of our evolution. Because these two mediums are focused so heavily on the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and pride of life, their adherents have learned to perceive anyone and anything who opposes their egoistic pleasure as an enemy, even when it is their own Soul.
I have to admit, as I look back over the past forty-seven years, I have NEVER been under an attack. Everything I have experienced in life has been an initiation. And when I successfully completed an initiation, I received a reward. There remains a crown for me, though, at the end of this race. What’s the difference you might ask? It’s not necessarily easy to tell the two apart. They often look and feel the exact same.
One of the first questions you must ask is “what is the origin of the experience?” “Is this coming from one who seeks my perfection, or my destruction?” To know the answer, you must know your life path and mission. Once you know this, you can then examine the challenge in how it relates to that life path and mission.
For example, I AM a life path 11. This is the path of the Master Healer. My mission is Tikkun Olam, the healing/restoration/correction of the world. Tikkun Olam, however, begins with Tikkun Nephesh, which is the healing/restoration/correction of the self. My challenge, end stage renal disease, is proving the Master Healer that I AM because I have to first heal me, before I can fulfill my mission to heal the world.
So, what I have endured is no devil attacking me. It is the Master I AM (my Soul) harshly training the disciple (my body and ego) to exercise self-love and self-control towards the goal of complete mastery, mind (ego), body (flesh and senses), and Soul (I AM presence).
Let’s look at a life path 22 as another example. Life path 4 is the path of the Master Builder. Even The Universe Itself is built upon law and order. The number 22 carries the energy of foundations, stability, accountability, and consistency. The mission of the life path 22 is to establish boundaries and order for the world to be restored. The Master then must first establish law and order for himself, in order to do so for the world.
Initiations for the life path 22 will challenge the disciple to exercise discipline and self control. Attacks, however, will encourage the individual to disregard all discipline, and to do only what feels good. Instead of leading to the perfection of this individual, it actually provokes his destruction, which is the antithesis of his mission.
In regards to emanation and attraction, it may actually be simpler to discern the difference. The problem, however, arises with the espousal to Law of Attraction teachings. Law of Attraction is exclusively a temporal, human “law” (thus it is no law at all). It doesn’t even work for the majority, and oftentimes, an enemy will assist you in attracting what your ego desires, because that enemy then doesn’t have to worry about you standing in your I AM presence, and crushing its head.
Emanation is a byproduct of the highest of the four worlds of the tree of life, which is Atzilut. Atzilut is the dimension of the crown and third eye chakras. Atzilut is essentially Heaven. The crown and the third eye deal in the highest spiritual order. Thus, emanation (i.e. manifestation) is the birthing of Heaven into the Earth. It is bringing the eternal and the temporal into infinite oneness.
Attraction, on the other hand, is nothing more than seeing something the ego (mind and senses) find appealing, and devising a plan to acquire that thing. Attraction takes no thought whatsoever for eternity. Attraction, therefore, shuns all restrictions and self-discipline. Attraction says “I want it, and I want it now, and I will do whatever I must to obtain it.” Abraham Hicks and other Law of Attraction “gurus” call this getting on alignment with what you want. What they don’t tell you is that by aligning yourself with the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, you actually end up out of alignment with your own I AM presence. You have now made yourself a slave to your carnal desires. The end thereof is death.
There are some who have tasted of their missions, and have attempted to pimp their own inherent divinity to achieve earthly gain. They use their gifts to deceive, and have a desire now to lead many to a form of hell. Hell is not a literal place. No! It is, however, a separation from the I AM presence. Too bad some have satisfied their egos so that they don’t even realize they’ve forsaken their divinity for mortality, and have chosen to reincarnate for another karmic cycle, all because it feels good.
