Today, I'm going to be sharing with you that of the shadow side of the Law of Attraction. This is a very subtle thing that a lot of people aren't aware of, and when you become aware of it, it changes the game. It changes the game. You want to know why changes the game because then you don't come from this place of neediness, this place of the energy state from which you want what you want to create in your life. A lot of times what we'll realize too, let me first off, share with you a little bit of this.
I've been reading a lot lately about that, of the Toltec. The Toltec been around. We're around thousands long time ago. I don't know exactly how long, but they talk a lot about, there's a book called the four agreements that are based on some of the teachings of the Toltec. And it has to do with understanding that our reality is a dream. We all have our own individual dream. And our dream is what we create with our beliefs.
And at the same time, we have this collective dream, which is the accumulation of all the dreams of that, of society, of all the different people. And what happens is many of us have our own dreams. We could even think of this as the dream of what we want to create in our life. And what many of us do is we tag on to other people's dreams of people. We idolize people we look up to.
And the danger in this is that many of us may think that we want what we think we want, which is what we're given as social conditioning. When we go out into the world, we see that have the money, the cars, the clothes, the status, the power, all of these things that we think we need to want. But we only want it because we've been conditioned to think that that's what's important.
We've been conditioned to compare ourselves to other people. If we can get just a little bit ahead of everyone else, we can feel better about ourselves. And many of these desires are actually the desires of other people, of other celebrities, people. We look up to media corporations. And what happens is when we take on the collective dreams as if they're our own.
And many times, that will create a lot of unhappiness, a lot of unworthiness, a lot of dissatisfaction because we're taking on the goal of the things that are side effects. What I mean by side effects is many people don't get straight to their heart of what they want. And the shadow side is from when we're going to just the mind. We're going to the ego. Think of the shadow as part of the ego that wants things based on increasing his status, wants things based on increasing its level of self-worth.
But understand that what we can begin to do is be aware of this. Sometimes people will come to me and they'll say, Aaron, I want more money. I want to win the lottery and a dog on the lottery a lot. And that the reason being is because most people want the lottery to win the lottery for the wrong reasons. They want the money the lottery brings, but they're not really passionate about going and getting lottery numbers. 99% of people aren't really passionate about it.
They're just hoping that they can acquire all the money that comes with it. And many people will go straight to money. Many people do go straight to their money. They're doing the job they just don't like, but it brings in the money for the bills, and it's comfortable. However, money is a side effect of you doing what you love or it's a side effect of the value you bring.
When you start to look at these things in new ways, you can see that many times you made me chasing the wrong things. You may be chasing money thinking the money's going to bring you happiness when money won't bring you happiness. Money is just a side effect. Instead of going for side effects, go for getting to the core, the shadow aspect.
Think of that kind of like the darker aspects also that are created as we are growing up and as we are developing who we think we are, our sense of identity and many parts of our shadow, maybe things that are running in our life unconsciously. Some of them may serve us for a period of time, but eventually, we have to let them go. For example, when I first started making YouTube videos, part of me probably was putting so much effort and willpower into what I do because I was intending to become worthier.
I was intending to become someone to prove people wrong that didn't believe in me when I was first starting on YouTube. I had a lot of people that would look at me and they'd be like, what are you up to Aaron? I'd be like, I'm making, I'm making YouTube videos and I was making YouTube videos for like six months to a year with almost no, no. With almost no results at all and people I would, I would see, I'd go to like parties and stuff or talk to friends and I could just see the glaze in their eyes. I'd be like, I'm making YouTube videos like, oh, okay. You know, like that'll never happen.
Another one of your dreams. And I'd be like, no, I'm going to prove everyone wrong. I'm going to do it myself. I'm going to have this willpower. It served me in certain ways, but I realize that when I was putting my happiness into the future and I was using the wrong parameters. The wrong benchmarks for success. You see as like looking for like, like, oh, I'll be happy when I get to 100,000 subscribers. Hundred thousand comes around. It's a great feeling of accomplishment. I'm doing what I love full-time.
However, there was also a sense of I want more, more, more always more. And then what happened is I achieve up to 200,000 and then I hit 200,000 and three hundred thousand four hundred thousand five hundred thousand now you see, it just keeps on going. But the shadow side of the Law of Attraction is if we are too materialistic and we only want things for the things that will gratify our ego, we create a dangerous environment.
It will serve for a certain period of time because if that serves us to take action and that's great, the key is not becoming identified with it. We just have to be aware. We have to be aware of the shadow side of ourselves. Part of me may have such a strong work ethic because of my past of having to become someone in the past when I went through pain growing up of being told that like you don't go to college, you won't be successful.
The shadow side of the Law of Attraction is understanding the ego desires versus the higher purpose. Think of it like that. The ego desires of why we want things. Our ego thinks it wants it because we will have more power, we will have more things to buy, we will have more friends, we would have more involved in this stuff. That's the ego desire. You're going to be aware that some of this are a side effect. Yes, I and then there's that higher mission and the higher mission and the ego. It's about merging these two together and not being identified with the ego desires.
The higher mission is something that adds value to everyone else or that adds value in general. By you being yourself, you're adding value if you're being your true self. When I make YouTube videos, what happens is I'm doing what I love. I'm in a high vibration flow state. That's my higher self. However, if I were to become solely identified with Aaron Doty who has x number of subscribers and all of these things, then I create the shadow aspect of myself and that creates the potential for me to be knocked off the pedestal. What I do is I make sure that I always remember that it's not really me making these videos.
It's an energy that's flowing through me. Some people could call that channeling. Some people call that flow state, whatever you want to call it, but as long as I remain humble and I allow it to flow through because it wants to come through, the study can help more people, then it keeps the energy going and a side effect of that is still abundant. The nice things still come. The cool opportunities come, the ability to travel, come to the friends, everything comes, but I'm not identified with it.
It comes from a level of identification in the shadow side, wants to identify with all of the materialism and if we become identified with the materialism, we stay in lower states of consciousness. However, realize reality is still a dream. It's still meant to be fun. You can still enjoy those things but you don't become identified with them. You don't become attached to the dream itself. Do you see? This is a different perspective and the way that I view it is I focus more on bridging the two.
What are you passionate about? You know, it's, I watched the show shark tank sometimes and then the show, you see product people come in, and they pitch their products to these investors and the products they pitch. You can always see a correlation with the ones that are going to do the best with how much value they add to other people. Value is subjective. That is true. You could say, well you know, I was watching one the other day and it was like some like food restaurant place that had some of the unhealthiest food you've ever seen.
They would like mix like Mozzarella sticks with Jalapeno poppers with like all these different things into a sandwich is so unhealthy, but the sharks thought it was delicious. What you'll notice is that that company will do well make one cause it's on shark tank and that immediately puts it to like a new level of people paying attention. But two people are going to see the value in going to eating some unhealthy food. They're going to get that validation while they eat it, even though it might not be health conscious or something that helps them. However, it's about being aware that people will perceive that as valuable. Because of that, that is adding value, the perceived value in the marketplace.
Okay, and then there's the other side of things, of adding value maybe in more of a sense of something that really does add value and changes people's lives. There's been, I've seen things on shark tank that have come on that are really something that'll add value to people's lives. Like there was one that was like some type of breath meter things so that people could know whether they had alcohol in their system if they were good to drive or not. That's stronger why it's a stronger purpose.
That would help even more people and that one, every single shark was in on that deal. It was for millions of dollars because it had a strong why, a strong purpose. Let me ask you a question though. What is your purpose? Because if you are going towards that, you will find that all these little side effects of the ego stuff come anyways.
As long as you don't become identified, it will continue to happen, but be aware that there's a larger stream that wants to come through. You are aware that you have a purpose in life and when you tap into that purpose, you tap into the larger energy system. You see, here's the thing. Every single one of us is connected, whether we're aware of it or not. Every single one of us has a connection and what we put out comes back to us. Just as much as we are having our own individual reality, there's a reality that encompasses all of us and the universe is consciousness in itself just like their cells in our body, but we are also a cell of mother Gaia.
The universe itself has consciousness and when you have this intention to add value to the universe, to other people, the universe gives you more resources to do that in a humble way. That's why the contribution is so powerful is when you have a strong way. When you have a strong purpose.
That truth about the Law of Attraction is when you're in alignment with the universe, you are embodying your divine self, your authentic self, who you really meant to be. But you see the shadow side of the Law of Attraction is when you just identify as the ego. Fill up your own cup and realize the energy is within you to feel happy right now. And when you start to embody to happiness right now, you begin to transform your life in a powerful way.
You see, we just give these external benchmarks in our mind. When x, y, z happens, then I can feel happy, but the key is being aware of it because when you become aware of it, you can then say, wait, I can give myself permission right now to be happy, and by doing so, you will become happier. All these external benchmarks I had when I get to 100,000 subs, I'll feel happy. 200,000 sub-three, four instead, I'm like, why don't I just feel happy right now?
And the paradox is as soon as I decided, no, I'm just going to be happy right now, more and more abundance comes in than ever before because I'm in a higher frequency. If you focus instead on the Law of Attraction, he focused on raising your level of consciousness. You'll get what you want anyway, but most people do and are trying to attract things from a level of unworthiness or from a level of the ego desires or identification with the ego. Be aware of the balance of these two things. Start to put yourself more connected to your heart. Why are you doing what you do? What are you passionate about?
And understand, the more you do that, the more you focus on that, the more your life will begin to change because then the more you're existing in a higher state of consciousness. But the key to this blog is awareness. Be aware of why you want what you want and start to merge it with a higher vision. Start to merge it with the universe flowing through you. Doesn't mean you have to become a YouTuber, has shares information.
It could be. What it could mean is that you just start doing what you are really passionate about because that feeling of passion is normally going to be something that has value to other people even in unconscious ways because you've been at the core of who you are. You doing what you're meant to be doing in life.
The shadow side of the APP is, the Law of Attraction is when we go for side effects, it's when we go just for the money, we become identified with it. When wen we go just for the power, we identify with it instead, go for more of at your core, aligned with the universe, allow things to flow through. You have a strong why. Be aware of what the ego wants, but don't identify with it and you'll be just fine.
