Emotional Intelligence: Using the Laws of Attraction | D. Ivan Young | TEDxLSCTomball

  • Published on Mar 2, 2016
  • The "Laws of Attraction" are real; inasmuch, there is a Divine Component. Connecting Personality Type to The Laws of Attraction positions you for immediate manifestation of your desires while unleashing your preordained purpose. Your Creator gave you a unique Personality Type for a reason.
    There are many words that describe Dr. D Ivan Young, but here are the few that I chose - discerning, enlightened, a spiritual teacher and sagacious philosopher. Seldom does someone possess the ability to connect, at a core level, to impact so many different and varying people. His witty insight into how, and moreover why, people do the things they do is astonishing. Having known Dr. Young for a few years, never have I seen him at a loss for words or searching for an answer. His compassion, his love, and his authentic way of communicating to us exactly what we need to hear and when we need to hear it has profoundly changed my life, and the lives of everyone I’ve witnessed him come in contact with.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    Just be careful of not to use this as a “spiritual bypass”. Google it.

  • OM:Orchestrated Manifesting

    This is brilliantly said and explains the reason the "Law of Attraction" doesn't work sometimes despite visualization, affirmation, scripting etc. As I like to say, "The Universe is the best BS detector." You can talk the talk, but the universe knows when you are lying. Manifestation is the perfect combination, of the power of the subconscious mind, physics and energy, spirituality, and faith.

    I wish I liked this kind of talks, but.. nope. I cannot stand the "everything happens for a reason" concept. Why do you think everything happens for a reason? Do we have data on that to back up this thing? Or it's just the usual motivation talk? Also, I don't think people don't quit smoking because "they envision it". Many people manage to quit smoking/go to the gym everyweek. Many don't. It's statistics

    Just a quick Google search did the trick. "Law of attraction" has been classified as pseudoscience by the scientific society as there is no way to actually prove it. No harm on having a positive mindset but results require action.

  • Michael Selim

    This is not accurate! This only ONE way of passing your desire to the subconscious. It's not a law, it's a technique. And there are man other techniques, some of them by concentrating on what you DON'T want or reject. Other techniques are used to intentionally eliminate any conscious concentration on the desire and directly send the desire to the subconscious. There is no such thing as "the law of attraction'. This is a FACT, not an opinion. The so called LOA is a hoax. Have a nice day!

    we,،، Muslims instead of meditation we have prayer . the true Muslims are brilliant in emotional intelligence because our mission is to change people to the best so we should accept them even if they harm us or will something bad because there isn't in earth someone that hurts people without hurting himself . as much as you cause pain to people as much as you cause pain to yourself it might be a fake smile or a harsh words or an indirect look . or clap or ..
    in life you need to patience . wisdom and honor . just a few people in the world they can have both three and conserve it still the end .wisdom you can have it by the intelligence of your brain mental intelligence after analysis of theories and experience s . the honor needs a strong belief inside of you of the purpose and it s importance . while the only thing you can not know if you have it is patience most people avoid situations that they need to be patient it breaks their honor or test their wisdom and makes them uncomfortable and it takes time . but I can tell you the most hard thing in this world is patience so if you have it believe that you are strong patient ones are commonly not considered important to people it is a weakness . we see many successful people motivating us in a comfortable way that we think they have lived the life we dream about . everyone respect us we will have many opportunities and everything is gone be right if someone can succeed that means I can too . while many successful people avoid to tell you their sad stories because it is considered a failure in society . they are still influenced by their sad emotions so you see them always brings a fake smiles into camera only emotional intelligent can feel that they are lying it is impossible to a singer or an actor to smile since childhood still the end of his career to the same purpose . he has seen things he didn't expect or heard . but you see them always with an euphoria in cameras such a big lie . what I want to see if you want really to succed in life use patience to protect your honor and your wisdom . so you can always have a great self esteem even if you fail and fail because your patience with people and accepting them as they are will not cause many attacks to your honor and wisdom you will feel that you are still the same even the high tension of changes around you and you will be more capable to study objectively your situations and manage it without spending a lot of energy to protect yourself in Islam we believe to god the protector of humans the only one that truly knows them and he promises those they are patient with unlimited gift . so we should not spend a lot time into blaming others and be patient even if it harms us and be truthful to people of what we feel but not to the point to cause bad feelings to them . if we feel bad we ask god to help us instead of transform ing our feelings to another person . and I am sure now that patient ones always get what they wants without sacrificing their intern peace because they sacrificed in an other thing which is very hard truly accept people and controlling oneself from what is extern and willing good things to others and help them get it.
    it is sad that in 2018 we are talking about emotion Al intelligence which is the basic intelligence in earth when people used to be honest and believe in ethics first not being selfish when I win you win he and she wins together it wasn't a subject of discussion it was inertly . necessary . we can never do things perfectly if we don't think its not really necessary or I have another option getting to the same goal.
    people come first because if we didn't find people around us when we were young we would never arrive that fast to the points we are today . if you want to keep feeling happy with your success you have to keep willing it truly to others
    this is from my prayers and my life experience I hope you are fine I love you all

    Summary -
    - Spend more time thinking about things you want
    - Stop being anxious about past and future and operate in right now.
    - You will train your subconscious mind to manifest your desires
    - Everything happens for a reason
    - Examine every moment for its meaning - what is this supposed to teach me right now?
    - Stop being reactive become proactive
    - Don’t listen to respond, listen to understand
    - Always ask why? Why am I doing what I am doing?
    - Passion, purpose, presence
    - Feel, Believe, Receive
    - That what you seek, that what you desire, is equally seeking you.

    Firstly, congratulations on your perseverance. Why did you try this for ten years if it wasn't working for you? Secondly, you don't think that constant depressive and negative thoughts might actually lead to depression, and eventually to someone taking their life? And this doesn't seem like the LOA to you?

    Everything he is saying comes DIRECTLY 100% from the Abraham Hicks material. 100%. Not that I think it's wrong for him to have given no credit - as many people would have their reservations against him saying he recieved his information from a woman who literally channels what the Ted audience would consider a 'ghost'.. but I hope this message got through and I hope it lead more people to spiritual explorations. Anyone who enjoyed this should explore the hundreds of hours of material available on youtube of Abraham Hicks. Amazing nonphysical teacher who helped me immensely. Happy to be living in an age where people are waking up.
