Analysis in concentration

Here’s an interesting quote from William Walker Atkinson:

“Draper says: “Although many images may be simultaneously existing upon the retina, the mind possesses the power of singling out any one of them and fastening attention upon it, just as among a number of musical instruments simultaneously played, one, and that perhaps the feeblest, may be selected and its notes exclusively followed.”

And as Taylor says: “In a concert of several voices, the voices being of nearly equal intensity, regarded merely as organic impressions on the auditory nerve, we select one, and at will we lift out and disjoin it from the
general volume of sound; we shut off the other voices—five, ten and more—and follow this one alone. When we have done so for a time, we freely cast it off and take up another.”

Carpenter says: “The more completely the mental energy can be brought into one focus and all distracting objects excluded, the more powerful will be the volitional effort.”

Many authorities hold that the attention may be best applied and exercised by analyzing an object mentally, and then considering its parts one by one by a process of abstraction. Thus, as Kays says: “An apple presents to us form, color, taste, smell, etc., and if we would obtain a clear idea of any one of these, we must contemplate it by itself and compare it with other impressions of the same kind we have previously experienced. So in viewing a landscape, it is not enough to regard it merely as a whole, but we must regard each of its different parts individually by itself if we would obtain a clear idea of it. We can only obtain a full and complete knowledge of an object by analyzing it and concentrating the attention upon its different parts, one by one.”

Reid says: “It is not by the senses immediately, but rather by the power of analyzing and abstraction, that we get the most simple and the most distinct notions of objects of sense.” And, as Brown says: “It is scarcely possible to advance even a single step in intellectual physics without the necessity of performing some sort of analysis.” In all processes requiring analysis and examination of parts, properties or qualities, the attention is actively employed.

Accordingly, it follows that such exercises are best adapted to the work of developing and cultivating the attention itself. Therefore, as a parting word we may say: To develop and cultivate the power of attention and concentration, (1) Analyze; (2) Analyze; and (3) Analyze. Analyze everything and everybody with which or whom you come in contact. There is no better or shorter rule.”

I was in doubt whether to post this quote or not because it can be misunderstood.

Analysis in the etymological sense means “breaking up, loosening, releasing”, and it’s about splitting into minor parts. While synthesis is about combining.

What Atkinson is recommending is starting to break into different details and isolate to train your concentration, and indeed that’s a powerful advice… BUT it’s also important than you later do the synthesis. That’s a crucial element!

Meaning, break it down, but then place it back together. Solve et coagula.

Transformation of your identity

Being magnetic is more than doing a few exercises everyday and getting it over with.

It’s a transformation of your identity.

You don’t stay the same person as you go through the training. Change is inevitable – at least when you are doing it right!

Someone who lives in anxiety, fear or sadness, is not the same person who lives in abundance and magnetism.

It can’t be.

This change is not something that only reflects in one part of you. It’s not like everything continues the same about you, but you are now “magnetic”.

No! Change and magnetism go hand in hand.

Of course, this raises the objection of: “I want to be myself”.

And that’s perfect if you are happy with the way your life is going and what you have been achieving.

No problem there.

The problem is only if you aren’t happy with something. Only then do you need to change.

And yes, for someone non-magnetic to magnetic there’s a CORE change inside of you.

Maybe “yourself” is fearful, anxious and with contracting energy in a very large range of situations.

Would you still be “yourself” if you’re now relaxed and expansive in those situations?

We may enter all sorts of philosophical debates here about the nature of your identity and self, but that will beat the point.

The most important message I want to send is: not be afraid of change. Accept it! Particularly if what you’ve been doing until now hasn’t been working.

being in a corner and still be magnetic

Many students believe that you can be on a corner of a room, alone, not saying anything and still attract and be magnetic.

Although that can happen… there’s specific requirements for it.

I’ll explain in detail.

We would all love that idea of not doing anything, and simply get what we want.


Two points:

1) This only happens if you are already magnetic. If your energy is already infused with the energy you want to attract. Then, indeed, you don’t need to do that much.

The problem is that most students who aim to do that aren’t yet magnetic. So sitting on a corner is mostly due to fear and anxiety rather than a solid magnetic energy.

It’s about avoidance, not magnetism.

And when that is the case, the results will obviously not be good.

You can’t expect to have your whole energy withdrawn and contracting, and still attract and be magnetic… regardless if you are in a corner or if you are speaking with everyone around you.

Once your energy changes, it doesn’t really matter where you are sitting or what you do.

It’s about your energy.

2) the second aspect is about opportunities for projection

If you are in a corner and no one sees you and your magnetism isn’t that strong, you simply don’t have opportunities for your projection to come through.

Not your voice, or your touch, or your gaze (particularly if you are looking at the floor!).

If your magnetism isn’t that strong (yet!), then you need to seek opportunities to project. And staying alone in a corner isn’t one.

You aren’t projecting anything, even if you think you are. The more you interact, the more opportunities you’ll have to project your magnetism.

Magnetism is indeed not dependable on whether you are actually speaking or not. You can be magnetic by not saying a single word. That’s true.

Yet, if you are afraid to interact verbally, or anxiety is stopping you, my educated guess is that your non-verbal projection will also be bad.

The important part is the energy, then you can do whatever you want, as long as it’s not based on a negative emotion or a negative energy movement.
