The Law of Attraction basically states we are magnets for the energy that we knowingly or unknowingly project out into the world. So by our wounds we attract those with similar wounds or through our ascension/healing, we attract to us those on a similar path. What we see is a reflection of ourselves.
In this post, that I hope to make a series, I look at how the wonderful “Woman v” series by the eloquent poet Ax exemplifies the Law of Attraction in relationships.
[please share love for his work directly to his site & check out his amazing series]
I can draw your lines by heart,
the flow from ink that bleeds,
from the cuts across my wrists,
drips along my fingers,
as they press,
Stars like crystal hovers above,
twinkles that fade in your presence ,
the shine in your eyes glitter,
brighter than any star,
heaven can muster,
Visually, the first stanza matches the second, one being a reflection of the other.
At the beginning of the poem, we see the poet’s precognisance of his physically absent love, having known the presence of her (later we find) through the ethers. “I can draw your lines by heart,” shows that even when the two have not yet met physically he knows her as he knows himself. She is his reflection.
He draws her in an effort to better know himself through ink that bleeds and mixes with his own blood. He is shedding life force in an effort to both better create himself and to attract his embodied anima; his twin flame. It also shows where his wounds are part of the magnet that reveals her to him. Here we can also gain a taste of the suffering of the poet; bleeding, wishing, desiring and needing the heavenly presence of his lover in his physical life.
To heal the wounds and transcend them, or perhaps through them, he is able to see her heavenly body in the second stanza. We can also see the desire of a man to deify his lover; beseeching the Goddess of his dreams, who can shine more clearly and brightly than the brightest stars of Heaven. His desire is for her. Whereas, generally, for a woman it is her desire to be desired by her lover that attracts her to him.
So in Woman i/v we can see how the Law of Attraction both shapes the poet and his lover. As he reveals and transcends his wounds, he attracts her more strongly into his life.
Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.

This poem really speaks to me and my desire to be authentic and free. I am repeatedly choosing to stand down, to surrender, so that I may attract people based on my truth and not my wounds…Feel free to join me!
