Do you love a good conspiracy theory? I sure do. They can certainly make for a great story, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. FBI special agents Mulder and Scully chased aliens every week in The X-Files TV show. Conspiracy Theory, the movie with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts, was another good one. With all of that attention, what’s wrong with conspiracy theories?
I want to look at them from the Law of Attraction and see why conspiracy theories are harmful when you buy into them too strongly.
What is a Conspiracy Theory?
To know what’s wrong with conspiracy theories, you have to know what one is. Here is the definition of “conspiracy theory” according to Dictionary.com:
Most of the conspiracy theories that I am aware of have to do with government coverups. The most popular ones have to do with September 11, 2001 and the always popular aliens. Have you watched the Stargate movie or any of its spin-off TV shows? Stargates are real and, just like on the show, can transport you all over the universe. They are supposedly the best way to get to the underground military bases on the Moon and on Mars. Of course the government knows all about it.
It makes sense that most of the conspiracy theories involve the government with all of the control that they can exert in our lives. You have to believe that they are up to something, right?
What’s Wrong with Conspiracy Theories?
A conspiracy theory in itself isn’t a big deal. After all, they make for interesting stories and we all watch them on movie and TV screens all the time. The problem is when you buy into them so completely that they affect how you view and live your life.
The Law of Attraction says that you attract what you think about. So, if you spend all of your time thinking about conspiracy theories, that is what you will attract. I don’t mean that you will attract more conspiracy theories, though you might.
You can look at a conspiracy theory as a form of paranoia. Someone is out to get you, or at least keep you in the dark. They create a feeling of distrust, resentment, anger and fear. That is what you will attract more of.
I know, because I have been there.
I have (or maybe “had”) a very good friend. He’s actually the person who taught me most of what I know about the Law of Attraction, which will make this story rather ironic, or maybe just sad.
Several years ago he started getting into some conspiracy theories about how the government is controlling and using us. It had to do with our birth certificates, social security cards, hidden bonds and accounts worth billions of dollars, the Federal Reserve Bank, and of course the IRS.
He got involved with someone who supposedly knew how it all worked and could teach you to use that system to your benefit. That led to another person who also supposedly knew and he brought me into it.
It became a lifestyle of filing documents to opt-out of this and reclaim that.
One day I woke up and realized that I didn’t like where I was. I looked at it from the Law of Attraction. When you are thinking about dealing with scams, what do you attract? More scams. When you are living in fear and anger, what do you attract? More fear and anger.
Is the government scamming us? I don’t know. But I do know that the people we were working with were scamming us.
At that point you have to take a step back and look at where you are and where you want to go. You create your own life with your thoughts. You really do. Do you want to be surrounded by fear, anger and resentment of a world that is out to get you? Or do you want to live a life of happiness and peace where the world is a beautiful place?
I chose door #2, the one with the exit sign above it.
My friend is still there. I haven’t spoken to him in 2 years because you can’t talk to anyone outside, especially someone who left. Yeah, it’s kind of like a cult.
Do You Like Conspiracy Theories?
Now that I have first-hand experience with what’s wrong with conspiracy theories I am much more careful about them. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy them as stories or as what-if scenarios, but I don’t put a lot of time or energy into them anymore. I know why conspiracy theories are harmful, and the Law of Attraction makes it very clear.
The Law of Attraction says that you need to be aware of what you feel and think about. Feelings of fear, anger and resentment will attract more things that make you feel fear, anger and resentment. That’s what’s wrong with conspiracy theories. On the other hand, feelings of peace, happiness and freedom will attract more things that bring you peace, happiness and freedom. The choice is completely yours.
So, do you enjoy conspiracy theories? What’s your favorite one? Do you invest in them with all of your emotions or do you consider them and set them aside as you would a good book or movie? Leave me a comment below and please share this post with your followers on social media.
