Magnets attract. They are probably the simplest attractors in the Universe. Even in their simplicity, magnets show us how we, as human magnets, also attract and influence things to ourselves.
The amazing thing about magnets is that they can attract from afar. Put a strong magnet behind a wall and a metal bar on the other side of the wall feels the force of attraction. The powerful magnetic field is not limited by the presence of solid objects.
The force of attraction of a magnet depends on its internal energy.
When scientists studied magnets, they discovered that magnets have a circular field. They found this by placing a magnet under a piece of paper and scattering iron filings on that paper. The fine filings outlined the magnet loops from which the magnet’s field is constructed.
These lines of force emanate from one pole of the magnet and travel in a circular path to the opposite pole of the magnet. Along the way, these lines of force always find the path of least resistance.
The lines of force that leave a magnet always return. In other words, whatever the magnet sends out always comes back!
What happens when an iron bar is placed within a magnet’s field?
The iron bar is, at first, not magnetic. The dipoles (tiny microscopic magnets) within the material are arranged in random order such that the strength of each dipole within the bar opposes the field of others. This prevents a simple iron bar from attracting another iron bar.
But, when the iron bar enters a magnetic field, the magnetic field causes the dipoles in the iron to align. When it does that, the magnet begins to attract the iron bar due to magnetic alignment.
Now, if the iron bar is removed from the magnetic field, something interesting happens. The iron bar retains some magnetism. That is, not all the dipoles flip back into a random position. Many of them stay aligned with the direction of the magnetic field. While not as strong as the permanent magnet, it can attract smaller objects.
In other words, the permanent magnet “influenced” or “convinced” the iron bar of its own inherent magnetism.
As human magnets, we do a similar type of attraction and influencing. Permanent magnets have strong magnetic fields because their internal structure is aligned so that all the dipoles synergistically work together. A person who is also “well aligned”, one with a single minded purpose and emotional drive is highly magnetic.
Most of us, on the other hand, have scattered thoughts and emotions like the dipoles within an iron bar. Thoughts and emotions that are random and rampant cause a loss of attractive energy. This makes a person non-magnetic or, non-charismatic.
But when influenced by highly magnetic individuals, the random thoughts and emotions of another begin to develop purpose and drive and in doing so, also become magnetic.
That is how powerfully motivated people can move audiences and nations. That is the main power of strong leaders. Their powerful charisma reaches out beyond time and space to those who have the proclivity for their message. Like the magnet which can only attract iron, the charismatic individual attracts people who have the potential for similar thought and emotion.
The process feeds on itself. As the charismatic personality attracts others of similar thought and emotion, the magnetism generated by the other personalities add to the magnetism of the returning loop to the source and the source gains even more power. As the source sends out magnetic forces, it receives even greater power.
In the design of magnetic devices, putting iron parts along the path of the magnetic lines increases the magnet’s force capability. The same should be true of humans. The more people aligned with a charismatic leader, the more powerful the leader becomes.
Charismatic presence can be both positive and negative. Based on the synergism with other like fields, Charismatic Presence has the potential for great change. One, however, will create while the other destroys.
