The Attractor

or: The definition of your true self

The teleological Attractor is the energy that represents the true, natural, core, ideal version of self one created oneself to be from the next dimensional realm up of Creation (the non-physical soul realm). It is that "thing" that we call intuition, but seen 4th-dimensionally rather than 3rd-dimensionally. It exists in "the future" and "the past", as 5th-dimensional information. All information ultimately exists simultaneously in the here and now — the only "place" that exists in the subjective reality metaparadigm that Bashar describes.

The Attractor energy is expressed physically as the feeling/sensation we call excitement, passion, joy, bliss — what you love to do. Being in vibrational alignment with the Attractor is equivalent to being completely absorbed in the present moment — the eternal now, the experience of which is the only thing that is actually real. The idea of a solid "external world" beyond the skin is an illusion happening within the idea of the experience.

Bashar's definition of excitement:

Excitement is the body's physical translation of the vibratory energy that represents your true, natural, core self.


The Attractor is thus an energy that can be "tapped into", or (re)aligned with (which one would already be were it not for unconscious programming by culture and the control system). When one releases the resistance created by the ego and allows the Attractor to guide the innocent Physical Mind, then communication between the Physical Mind and the Higher Mind is unimpeded, thus effortless manifestation ocurrs according to the Law of Attraction by shifting to parallel realities that are more representative of the resonant state of being one prefers.

Other terms for this energy, or conceptual correlates, include:

  • the Divine Purpose
  • (re)alignment with Source
  • high-flying disk / stepping into the vortex
  • the language of the soul / the language of life
  • activating divinity
  • submitting to fate
  • surrendering to the natural harmony of the universe
  • the Will of the Soul (or the Will of God)
  • faith in Self as God
  • kenosis

The Attractor is the path of least resistance, the vibration of one's core being as conceived by the soul/oversoul from non-physical (higher-frequency, higher-dimensional) reality. It can be thought of as the language of the (over)soul, as it intended from non-physical reality to express itself in its incarnational experience of physical materialization.

Tapping into the Attractor

Abraham-Hicks explains most eloquently how to tap into the Attractor:

Abraham Hicks ~ Life becomes magic when you focus

Sacramento January 31, 2015

Thank you to the Source of this information, Abraham-Hicks For more information please visit their website: http://www.abraham-hicks.com/

Bashar explains it in even simpler (yet highly precise) terms:

Bashar - True self (simply put)

"It is most truly you, it is your path, it is your reflection, it is your attractor, it is luring you to more of yourself".

[The true self] is encapsulated in a term that exists on your planet called passion, joy, and excitement. The idea is that that vibration, what you feel, that excitement, that physical sensation is actually the body's translation of the vibratory energy that is your true, core, inner being.


Bashar's message, along with what might perhaps be called the general foundational message from (purported) channeled ET messages, centers around this idea of one's true self.


teleology (n.)

  1. The belief or the study of design or purpose in nature.
  2. Such design or purpose.

Etymology: From Greek tele- (far, end) + -logy (study). Earliest documented use: 1742.

Wikipedia explains further:

A teleology is any philosophical account that holds that final causes exist in nature, meaning that — analogous to purpose found in human actions — nature inherently tends toward definite ends.

Teleology was explored by Plato and Aristotle, by Saint Anselm during the 11th century AD, in the late 18th century by Immanuel Kant as a regulative principle in his Critique of Judgment and by Carl Jung. It was fundamental to the speculative philosophy of Hegel.

A thing, process, or action is teleological when it is for the sake of an end, i.e., a telos or final cause. In general, it may be said that there are two types of final causes, which may be called intrinsic finality and extrinsic finality.

  • A thing or action has an extrinsic finality when it is for the sake of something external to itself. In a way, people exhibit extrinsic finality when they seek the happiness of a child. If the external thing had not existed that action would not display finality.
  • A thing or action has an intrinsic finality when it is for none other than its own sake. For example, one might try to be happy simply for the sake of being happy, and not for the sake of anything outside of that.

Since the Novum Organum of Francis Bacon, teleological explanations in science tend to be deliberately avoided because whether they are true or false is argued to be beyond the ability of human perception and understanding to judge. Some disciplines, in particular within evolutionary biology, continue to use language that appears teleological when they describe natural tendencies towards certain end conditions. While some argue that these arguments can be rephrased in non-teleological forms, others hold that teleological language is inexpungeable from descriptions in the life sciences.

The teleological Attractor is the energy that represents the ideal path and the purpose of the individual incarnation — an energy that attracts free will towards destiny/fate (i.e. the themes the soul has chosen to explore). The Attractor represents the ideal path of destiny, which represents the free will of the soul/oversoul (the parent phase space). Life is thus autotelic, and some human beings can be said to be "autotelics".

Destiny will simply be a reflection of what your Oversoul or your higher consciousness has chosen with its free will to experience as the general events of your life. Because your physiological personality is an artificial construct, and subject to the choices in the free will of the higher consciousness, then, to the physical consciousness, the free will of the higher consciousness will seem to be irrevocable or destined to happen. But understand that destiny is only the free will of the higher consciousness and it is the methodology about how you wish to go about fulfilling that destiny that is the prerogative of the free will of the physiological consciousness.


The psychedelic philosopher Terence McKenna referred to it as "the Strange Attractor" or as "the transcendental object at the end of time":

We are in the grip of some kind of an attractor, and when we look back at history, we can have a sense, I think, that we have never been here before. But we are so accustomed to causal thought, that we assume we have been pushed here, pushed here by historical necessity, by bad political decisions, by the vicissitudes of evolution (cultural and otherwise). I don’t think so. I think we have been pulled here, that we are under the aegis of a kind of an attractor. Some people would call it a “destiny“, but what it is is a dream that is pulling us deeper and deeper into the adventure of existential becoming. And faster and faster — that’s the other thing. Deeper and deeper, faster and faster, so that the rate of change that people were accustomed to before the Industrial Revolution, for example — we can barely conceive of such slow-moving, stately, meta-stable societies. On the other hand, within the 20th Century, the acceleration has been even more intense, and continues to accelerate.

Terence McKenna, 1996

(W)holistic thinking

In the subjective reality metaparadigm, existence (All That Is, Creation, Consciousness, you) only has one property: to exist. Experience happens within existence, because reality exists only subjectively — there is no outside of one's consciousness. The only thing that is real is the experience, not the "external reality", which is actually just a projected reflecting mirror.

As the 2nd Law of Creation states, "Everything is here and now." If everything already exists, it means that everything has a purpose — i.e. there are no coincidences, there is only synchronicity.

Holistic rationalist Terence McKenna elaborates (particularly around 21 minutes in):

Science's Relationship to Human Reality + Heckled For Criticizing Science (Terence McKenna)

[Published on May 23, 2015] A kind of non confrontational heckle, but he was trying his luck :D

Materialist dismissal of purpose

Believers search for a crumb of comfort or teleology in Darwin, but what looks promising always turns out to be poisoned. At the end of 'The Origin', for instance, Darwin feints toward reassurance, suggesting that life will 'tend to progress' over time. But his insistent, immediately adjacent point is that the future in which that progress may happen will be like the past — a vast stretch of geologic time, unstructured by plan or purpose.

Adam Gopnik

In the mechanistic worldview of the fundamentalist-materialist, such ideas as an attractor from "the future" — in a sense a kind of reverse 4th-dimensional causality — are outside of the scope of possibility, because the fundamentalist-materialist's logical mind is operating under unquestioned unconscious fundamental assumptions about the nature of reality.

Science has tried to tell us that human history is purposeless. Well this is a very odd contention, because if it is purposeless, it's the only purposeless and disordered process that's ever been observed. And there it is, right smack in the middle as the sum total of the activity of the most conscious entities known to exist in the cosmos — a strange place for purposelessness to crop up with such a vengeance...

Terence McKenna [source]

Thus, the atheists-by-default and the nesciently-positivists and the faithfully-devoted pseudo-skeptics — the believers of scientism — are making a seemingly absurd assumption, under the assumption that anyone speaking of purpose in non-human endeavors (teleology) must be speaking about faith-based deism of the ancient dogmatic Western religious kind.

Law of Attraction and the Attractor

The Law of Attraction is the instruction manual of the Attractor.

Attraction leads to the Attractor, which is "at the end of time", never reached until transcendence into spirit — which is to say the return to the more primordial non-physical realm of consciousness, the soul realm (6th/7th density), but now as a spirit imbued with the incarnational experience it chose to have at a lower frequency (3rd density). The Attractor is that which leads one who lets the Law of Attraction take care of causality to that which is most representative of the themes the soul chose to explore in the incarnation.

The Attractor in DMT experiences

During a DMT trip, particularly when returning from hyperspace, the Attractor can be tapped into in a dramatic fashion — which is often experienced as a condensation of synchronistic events acting as if a dimensional elevator or reverse carrier wave that leads one back down to candyland (sensorily-enhanced normal reality) in the most perfect way possible, followed by a slower return towards baseline 3rd density.

The Attractor and sleep

Abraham-Hicks explains the purpose of sleep, and how far fewer hours of sleep are necessary when one is aligned (with the Attractor):

Abraham Hicks - Can he operate on three hours of sleep

[Published on Jan 15, 2015]

The Attractor and music & dancing

When doing things that we do for its own sake — things that are not a means to an end but are done because we enjoy doing them — such as playing music and dancing, we become completely absorbed in what is happening in the present moment, and are thus in alignment with the source within, with the teleological Attractor that "pulls" one from the "future" (excitement) just as much (or more) as one is "pushed" from the "past" (learned experience).

Attractors at other scales

Terence McKenna explains the idea of attractors in mathematics and evolution:

Terence McKenna - The Strange Attractor

Mckenna discusses one of the points he often makes that is often the hardest point for people to get their heads around.

One can get their heads around it by thinking dimensionally. The Attractor would be a reverse causality existing in the "antitime" direction of the 4th dimension — all possible 4th-dimensionally-causal paths (timelines) already existing in the 5th dimension as probabilities.

At the scale of water, Viktor Schauberger claimed to have discovered that water is pulled, not pushed. Does water flow only gravitationally, or also levitationally? In other words, is water attracted to the Father Sky energy in addition to the Mother Earth energy? Researcher David Wolfe, citing Viktor Schauberger and Rudolf Steiner, shares many interesting ideas about water.

Fish don't swim, they're swum; and birds don't fly, they're flown.

Viktor Schauberger

At the galaxy supercluster scale, with the recent (around September 2014) redefinition of what constitutes our local supercluster, the core of our supercluster (Laniakea Supercluster) is centered on a Great Attractor:

The Great Attractor is a gravity anomaly in intergalactic space within the vicinity of the Hydra-Centaurus Supercluster at the center of the Laniakea Supercluster that reveals the existence of a localized concentration of mass tens of thousands of times more massive than the Milky Way. This mass is observable by its effect on the motion of galaxies and their associated clusters over a region hundreds of millions of light-years across.


The proposed Laniakea supercluster is defined as the Great Attractor's basin, encompassing the former superclusters of Virgo and Hydra-Centaurus. Thus the Great Attractor would be the core of the new supercluster.

Could there be a better physical example of "as above, so below"?

The Attractor in Eastern cultures

In the East, the Attractor is seemingly present in all the spiritual traditions, even if expressed very differently (and translated poorly):


In Sanskrit and in Hinduism, the idea is expressed as one of the three fundamental attributes of Brahman, which are Sat-chit-ananda:

Satcitānanda, Satchidānanda, or Sat-cit-ānanda (Sanskrit: सच्चिदानन्द) "being, consciousness, bliss", is a description of the subjective experience of Brahman. This sublimely blissful experience of the boundless, pure consciousness is a glimpse of ultimate reality.


The Vedantic philosophy understands saccidānanda as a synonym of the three fundamental attributes of Brahman. In the Advaita Vedanta school of Hindu philosophy, a person who fully lives Brahman (24 hours a day) is called a jivanmukta.

Brahman is "the unchanging reality amidst and beyond the world", which "cannot be exactly defined", but is Sat-cit-ānanda (being-consciousness-bliss) and "the highest reality". According to Advaita Vedanta, "a liberated human being (jivanmukta) has realised Brahman as his or her own true self" — i.e. is not separating 'self' from 'other'.


In Chinese and in Daoism, two relevant concepts, in addition to Dao itself, are ziran and wu wei:

Tao or Dao (Chinese: 道) is a Chinese concept signifying 'way', 'path', 'route', or sometimes more loosely, 'doctrine' or 'principle'. Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy and religion, The Tao is the intuitive knowing of "life" that of which cannot be grasped full heartedly as just a concept but known nonetheless as the present living experience of one's everyday being. [...] The Tao was shared with Confucianism, Chán and Zen Buddhism and more broadly throughout East Asian philosophy and religion in general.The Tao signifies the primordial essence or fundamental nature of the universe. In the foundational text of Taoism, the Tao Te Ching, Laozi explains that Tao is not a 'name' for a 'thing' but the underlying natural order of the universe whose ultimate essence is difficult to circumscribe due to it being non conceptual yet evident in ones being of aliveness. The Tao is "eternally nameless" and to be distinguished from the countless 'named' things which are considered to be its manifestations, the reality of life before its descriptions of it.

In Taoism, Chinese Buddhism and Confucianism, the object of spiritual practice is to 'become one with the tao' (Tao Te Ching) or to harmonise one's will with Nature (cf. Stoicism) in order to achieve 'effortless action' (Wu wei). This involves meditative and moral practices. Important in this respect is the Taoist concept of De (德; virtue).

In all its uses, Tao is considered to have ineffable qualities that prevent it from being defined or expressed in words. It can, however, be known or experienced, and its principles (which can be discerned by observing Nature) can be followed or practiced. Much of East Asian philosophical writing focuses on the value of adhering to the principles of Tao and the various consequences of failing to do so. [...]

The concept of Tao differs from conventional (western) ontology: it is an active and holistic conception of Nature, rather than a static, atomistic one. It is worth comparing to the original Logos of Heraclitus, c. 500 BC.

Ziran (Chinese: 自然; pinyin: zìrán; Wade–Giles: tzu-jen; Korean: 자연; Japanese: 自然 (じねん・しぜん, jinen shizen)) is a key concept in Daoism that literally means "self so; so of its own; so of itself" and thus "naturally; natural; spontaneously; freely; in the course of events; of course; doubtlessly". This Chinese word is a two-character compound of zi (自) "nose; self; oneself; from; since" and ran (然) "right; correct; so; yes", which is used as a -ran suffix marking adjectives or adverbs (roughly corresponding to English -ly). It is worth mentioning that in Chinese culture, the nose (or zi) is a common metaphor for a person's point of view.

The word 'ziran' first occurs in the Daodejing (17, 23, 25, 51) and refers to the structure of Dao, which cannot be referred back to anything else. It is generally accepted that the philosopher Laozi, author of the Daodejing, coined the term. Ziran is a central concept of Daoism, closely tied to the practice of wuwei, or effortless action. Ziran can be seen as the positive side of the Dao, with wuwei opposing it as the negative. Ziran refers to a state of "as-it-isness," the most important quality for anyone following Daoist beliefs. To become nearer to a state of ziran, one must become separate from unnatural influences and returned to an entirely natural, spontaneous state. Ziran is related to developing an "altered sense of human nature and of nature per se".

Wu wei (Chinese: 無爲; a variant and derivatives: traditional Chinese: 無為; simplified Chinese: 无为; pinyin: wú wéi; Japanese: 無為; Korean: 무위; Vietnamese: Vô vi; English, lit. non-doing) is an important concept in Taoism that literally means non-action or non-doing. In the Tao te Ching, Laozi explains that beings (or phenomena) that are wholly in harmony with the Tao behave in a completely natural, uncontrived way. The goal of spiritual practice for the human being is, according to Laozi, the attainment of this purely natural way of behaving, as when the planets revolve around the sun. The planets effortlessly do this revolving without any sort of control, force, or attempt to revolve themselves, instead engaging in effortless and spontaneous movement.

Wu may be translated as not have or without; Wei may be translated as do, act, serve as, govern or effort. The literal meaning of wu wei is "without action", "without effort", or "without control", and is often included in the paradox wei wu wei: "action without action" or "effortless doing". The practice of wu wei and the efficacy of wei wu wei are fundamental tenets in Chinese thought and have been mostly emphasized by the Taoist school. One cannot actively pursue wu wei. It is more a mere observation of one's behavior after they have accepted themselves for who they are and release conscious control over their lives to the infinite Tao.

Return to the root is called Quietness; Quietness is called submission to Fate; What has submitted to Fate has become part of the always-so; To know the always-so is to be illumined.

Tao Te Ching

Alan Watts explains Daoism in the most clear English words:

Alan Watts - Being in the right state of mind

Intuition is a very important natural gift we have. Take care and awaken it.


As Alan Watts explains in the video above, Zen Buddhism "is simply a Buddhist extension of Daoism" which "arose out of the marriage of Buddhism and Daoism in the 5th century AD and over the following centuries".

In Japanese Buddhism, specifically Nichiren Buddhism, the Gohonzon (an object of veneration) is a permission slip in front of which one recites the daimoku (the mantra Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō (南無妙法蓮華経)) in order to align with the Attractor by means of voice and concentration. Very loosely translated, the words in the mantra mean: nam(u)=devotion, myo=soul, ho=Physical Mind, rengue=simultaneity of causality, kyo=co-creation; and can be roughly translated to mean: "I commit myself to the wonderful dharma."

As Abraham-Hicks points out, the Buddhist point about desire is not to cease all desire, but to avoid insisting that you must figure out how the desire should manifest. The more focused you are on a desire, the more likely you are to introduce resistance into the equation. As Bashar says, the Physical Mind doesn't need to figure out how a manifestation will come about. It just needs to send "rockets of desire", to use an Abraham term, and let the Law of Attraction (communication with the Higher Mind) take care of the causality of bringing about the best possible scenario out of all the possible scenarios that the Physical Mind doesn't have the capacity to perceive (imagine).

The secret of life

The biggest secret is that life already works. It's just that the belief systems in the ego structure of the Physical Mind of most Human beings generates resistance to the Attractor energy that represents the natural self that one created oneself to be at the next dimensional realm of Creation up (the non-physical soul/spirit realm). The Attractor energy represents the ideal life experience, the ideal version of all possible (4th-dimensional) experiences the (4th-dimensional) Physical Mind may manifest by way of its communication with the (5th-dimensional) Higher Mind.

The ego structure, or construct, develops and crystallizes by around 6 years of age. The belief system matrix of our ego structures includes programs created by a control system that has been keeping the Human race in a state of subtle enslavement. Or not so subtle — it depends on one's perspective.

However, whatever degree of control the control system may appear to have, if the ontology described by Bashar is correct, it means that its influence can be bypassed higher-dimensionally, quite literally by defining it out of experience (just as the ego and violence can be defined out of experience):

Bashar – How to vibrationally bypass the control system

Bashar describes the causal mechanism by which any individual expression of consciousness can vibrationally bypass the influence of the control system, which is really just negative belief systems. As Bashar says, there are an infinite number of parallel realities; shift to the one you prefer.

From Bashar's transmission: The Voices In Your Head (2014-09-06) [part 2 @ 22min].


Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace. Watch the turmoil of beings, but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe returns to the common source. Returning to the source is serenity. If you don't realize the source, you stumble in confusion and sorrow.

When you realize where you come from, you naturally become tolerant, disinterested, amused, kindhearted as a grandmother, dignified as a king.

Immersed in the wonder of the Tao, you can deal with whatever life brings you, and when death comes, you are ready.

Lao Tzu

Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed.

Terence McKenna

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

Joseph Campbell, comparative mythologist

Let yourself be silently drawn by the gentle pull of what you really love.


There is a force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.

Mahatma Gandhi

We each have a sixth sense that is attuned to the oneness dimension in life, providing a means for us to guide our lives in accord with our ideas.

Henry Reed

Once we align the will of our soul with our actions, we begin to immediately live in natural magic; we more and more embody the effervescent state of Amazing Grace.

David Avocado Wolfe

If you leave the pool you have dug for yourself and go out into the river of life then life has an astonishing way of taking care of you, because then there is no taking care on your part.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive. Because what the world needs, is people who have come alive.

Garret John LoPorto

The question you should be asking isn't, "What do I want?" or "What are my goals?" but "What would excite me?"

Tim Ferriss

Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831)

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Steve Jobs

At least half the mystery novels published violate the law that the solution, once revealed, must seem to be inevitable.

Raymond Chandler, writer (1888-1959)

Under the influence of psilocybin in the Amazon, I noticed what I am completely convinced is an atrophied human ability. It's a very simple ability, but we have lost it. It's the ability to know how to walk from point A to point B, not following the shortest distance, but following automatically the path of least resistance — so that, you don't go down into valleys and then climb hills; you automatically stay on ridges, even though you take more secuitous paths to your goal. And I could feel this sense working, it was just part of the dashboard that had previously been covered up was uncovered. Here was a human sense, which we don't particularly need, because we've erected linear cities, where the path of least resistance usually is a straight line. But you can imagine people in rugged country — this is a sense which would confer great survival adaptability, and be tremendously important.

Terence McKenna

You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.

Alan Watts

The lower self composed of body and mind has been essentially separated from the higher self by a karmic barrier in the fourth density which generates ego. It's a consciousness which addicts people to base levels of desire through fear and sense of lack. It causes people to effort to control reality, generating the build-up of conditioned behaviours, isolating them from their inherent connection. So essentially we must confront and break down these fear based patterns that embed the lower consciousness within our being.
