The other day, I was doing a Life Coaching Session with a client who had purchased my “Boost Your First Chakra For Grounding & Prosperity” Audio Course, and he told me that what I said about the Law Of Attraction in that course busted his world wide open, and helped him realize why the LOA hadn’t been working for him. That made me realize I needed to get this into “out there.” But it’s a lot, so this is Part 1 of a two-part post (Part 2 will be posted tomorrow).
After the movie “The Secret” came out, you couldn’t go a day without hearing a dozen references to the “Law Of Attraction.” It was everywhere. According to the LOA, all you had to do was focus (that is, think and feel) intently on what you wanted, and it would manifest in your life. The main “technique” for activating this “law” was simply to visualize.
A few people had great success with it. But many did not. I was one of those who didn’t.
Because back then, I was “living” almost exclusively in my upper chakras, and people who are imbalanced toward their upper chakras — the overly “spiritual” types — cannot consciously manifest. Period.
And ironically, these same people are the best visualizers around. They can visualize ‘til the cows come home (as my dad would say). That’s not the issue — their inability to turn those visualizations into actual manifestations is.
You see, when it comes to the Law Of Attraction, one size does NOT fit all. A person’s chakra tendencies must be considered to figure out how they should approach the process of manifestation.
There are two very distinct chakra groups – Upper Chakra Dominant (UCD) People and Lower Chakra Dominant (LCD) People. These two types must approach the LOA in completely different (basically opposite) ways.
Upper Chakra Dominant people are unable to take their spiritual inspirations and draw them down into the earth (into manifest form), because there is no “vehicle” in their body to bring those ideas and inspirations down into the physical realm. They are basically blocked from the waist down, so the manifesting part of their system is literally not functioning.
Lower Chakra Dominant people have the opposite issue. They’re often blocked at the top, and unable to reach into the spiritual realm to connect with the purpose and inspiration they need for their manifestations to really matter to them, and to make a positive difference in the world.
Let me give you a simple visual for this:
Imagine a long, open shoot from sky to earth (your chakras). If you’re at the top end of the shoot (UCD people) and you drop gold coins down it, if it’s blocked in the middle, nothing is going to come out the other end, so no gold — or much else for that matter — is “manifested.”
Likewise, if you’re at the bottom end of the shoot (LCD people) and you point it up to the sky for sunlight (spiritual inspiration), if it’s blocked in the middle, you remain in complete darkness. You may have a whole lot of gold on your manifest end of the shoot, but it doesn’t mean anything to you, because you’re living in the metaphorical dark with it.
Ideally, all of our chakras are open and balanced, and we can manifest and appreciate the material world while bringing inspiration and purpose to everything we do. That’s what everyone wants and deserves.
The process of manifestation is actually quite simple. It’s the downward energy current that moves through the human chakra system like this:
Get INSPIRATION From Source (or Higher Self) – 7th Chakra
Create a Picture of the Inspiration (VISUALIZE it) — 6th Chakra
SET AN INTENTION and DO AFFIRMATIONS — 5th Chakra
BELIEVE IN IT and share it with others — 4th Chakra
ACT ON IT — take physical steps to create it – 3rd Chakra
CREATIVELY ADJUST & navigate any obstacles – 2nd Chakra
COMMIT & KEEP ON IT until it MANIFESTS – 1st Chakra
As you can see, this process has a minimum of seven steps — one for each chakra. If you miss any one of these steps, the process is incomplete.
UCD people can visualize all they want, but often cannot turn those visualizations into reality, and LCD people can have all the material things they want, but frequently cannot find the lightness of spirit they need for their life to have purpose and deep meaning.
To experience the full power of both your spiritual and manifest realms, you need to live in both your upper and lower chakras and to have a strong, open heart chakra that bridges these two realms.
I bolded the heart chakra (above) to emphasize it’s important role as a sort of bridge between these two aspects (note: I talk of “two aspects” or “realms” here for explanatory purposes, but really there is only ONE realm — spirit — in lighter and denser forms). In other words, everything is energy.
Many people are quite balanced in their chakras and are equally in their upper and lower chakras, but there are also many people who are stuck on one side of the heart bridge and feel trapped, as if they’re in an unmoving traffic jam on one side of an actual bridge.
Let’s look at these two groups and identify them a little better, so you can see if you are predominantly on one side — realizing of course, that you’re always shifting and innately moving toward balance.
Our first group, again, is the Lower Chakra Dominant (LCD) people. These folks tend to live below the bridge, and they are great manifesters. Making money and having material things is simple for them. But connecting to Spirit and being inspired in the way they manifest things is more difficult. The techniques of “The Secret” and the Law Of Attraction work well for these people, because they both emphasize using visualization, which is something LCD folks really need.
The people of this LCD group tend to be heavier in their body (if you know Ayurveda, they have a more Kapha body type). They’re also more rooted, pro-active and consistent in their lives. If this group suffers from an overall malaise, it is depression rather than anxiety, as they have more downward (heavy) energy than upper (light) energy.
Upper Chakra Dominant (UCD) people tend to live above the heart bridge in the more “spiritual” chakras. They usually meditate or do other activities like yoga that connect them to lighter frequencies. They typically have a deficiency in (or even an aversion to) one or more of the major qualities of the lower chakras: money (1st chakra), sex (2nd chakra) and power (3rd chakra).
They can seem scattered, because they typically are not very grounded. If they suffer from an overall malaise, it is anxiety rather than depression.

For today, I’d just like you to think about whether you generally fall into one of these two groups. And then, in my next blog post, I’ll share more about how you approach the LOA differently depending on which chakra group you fall into.
