What is Allowing? | A Law of Attraction Question

 What is Allowing?

Note: As part of our Law of Attraction Webinar Series, we discussed Allowing and the Law of Attraction. Feel free to watch the entire webinar (see video below) or continue reading for a synopsis of what we discussed.


What does allowing mean from a Law of Attraction perspective?


If you are practicing the law of attraction, then you have undoubtedly heard the word allowing. Despite it being a commonly used word, most people only grasp the concept intellectually but don’t truly understand it - that is from a vibrational standpoint. Remember we are all vibrational beings living in a vibrational universe, which also happens to be a matching vibrational universe. This means that like vibrational frequencies attracts like vibrational frequencies. In other words, like attracts like.

Allowing Definition #1

One definition of allowing is becoming a vibrational match to your desires. When you become a vibrational match, you are essentially allowing at that vibrational level. 

Matching Vibrational Universe

Using our famous vibrational scale as a visual representation of vibrational levels, you can see that if what you are asking for is at a level of 80, then you must allow at the level of 80 in order to experience that fully into your reality. If you doubt, which lowers your vibration because of resistance, then you will not be allowing at the level of 80. You will, however, be allowing at a lower level. For this example, let’s say 20. As a result, if your vibrational frequency is at a level of 20, then what you attract into your life will be at the level of 20.

Allowing Definition #2

Another definition of allowing is getting to the next vibrational level above your current level. Using our vibrational scale, we have superimposed the emotional scale from Abraham Hicks. As you can see, your level of allowing increases as you go up the scale. Conversely, as you go down the scale, you are offering resistance and your level of allowing decreases. [6:18 in video]

Vibrational Emotional Scale 

What role does the subconscious play?

The subconscious mind plays a critical role in what you are allowing. If you are not already familiar with the subconscious mind, check out our video on the Power of your Subconscious Mind.

What you experience in life gets put into your subconscious mind. As a result, your subconscious mind is literally the storage unit of all your experiences. This “accumulation of vibrational energy” not only sets the vibration of your asking, it also sets the vibration of your allowing.

In Healing and the Law of Attraction, we explain this idea in more detail. For this blog post, we will keep the explanation simple. The easiest way to do this is to give an example. Before we begin however, it may be easier to think of your life in sections. For instance, you have subconscious thoughts about relationships, employment, spirituality, who you are as a person, your life, money, your physical abilities, health, your emotional state, etc. Of course, it is more complicated than our simple explanation but this helps to put it into perspective.

Now on to the example. Let’s say in your childhood, you experienced a lot of conflict in relationships. This was the result of seeing your parents argue all the time, watching tv shows and movies with conflict and having contentious relationships with your childhood friends. As a result, we will say that your subconscious thoughts about relationships teeters on the idea of some type of conflict. We will give this thought an arbitrary number of 30 on the vibrational scale.

As you may or may not know, your subconscious thoughts make up the majority of your thoughts throughout the day. You may consciously think you have a positive attitude about relationships, however, your subconscious thoughts tell a different story. As a result of your subconscious level and the vibrations it sends out to the universe, you tend to attract tumultuous relationships into your life. This means you are only allowing relationships at that low vibrational level of 30. You have not raised your vibration to a level higher than your current subconscious beliefs to be able to allow a relationship with less conflict. Another way to put this is that you are a vibrational match based on your subconscious mind level.

Note: There may be other sections/areas of your life where you allow at a higher level but when it comes to relationships, you attract some type of conflict.

Mistakes in Allowing

There are several mistakes that people make in allowing. Listen in as I explain why these are mistakes. [22:03 in video above]

  • Not paying attention to how you feel…physically and emotionally
    • Feelings are important because they give you an idea of what your subconscious mind is thinking
  • Trying to reach too high in going from one vibrational level to the next
    • In other words jumping from level 20 to a level 80.
  • Not developing routines so that you are consistently training your subconscious mind to elevate to the next vibrational level
  • Being too serious

Ways to Allow

Remember, one of our definitions of allowing was getting to the next vibrational level above your current level. This is is essentially raising your vibration. There are many simple techniques you can use to do this. [28:50 in video]


Think of allowing from a vibrational standpoint - as either becoming a vibrational match or getting to the next vibrational level above your current level. Either way, allowing at a higher level is a practiced vibration and we are here to help.
