What is the Law Of Attraction and how to make law of attraction work for you?
I heard so much about it but never fully understood what it was or perhaps I really didn’t believe in it… until recently!
I was living a normal life, get married have a job have kids etc. Everything about my life was like clockwork. It seemed like I was following someone else’s plan because it just wasn’t sitting well with me.
Sure I loved my kids and wife but there was something about the way we were living that bothered me since I could remember.
The way my life was going I wasn’t fully happy with it and so I started to open my mind up to try to find out if there was more to what they called The Law Of Attraction.
I am sure the majority of us have all been taught from an early age that we can do anything we want to in this life right? Yet that very same teaching is constantly being thwarted.
Let me explain…
We have been told we can accomplish anything but yet society says only if you go to the right schools or live in the right neighbourhoods.
And at the same time, we have been told to believe in ourselves yet society tells us we are less than if we are too short, too tall, too fat, too thin, too pretty, not pretty enough.
I’m sure you get the picture, our parents and teachers tell us one thing and society and the media tells us otherwise.
We are constantly been directed to the way THEY want us to live our life. Go to school, get a job, get married and have kids.
But what if you don’t want to play by THEIR rules anymore?
What if YOU feel or think… well, not the same way as they want you to?
I was also told to “Think outside of the box”.
How are we to succeed in life with these mixed messages constantly bombarding us?
Is it any wonder that so many of us just accept our lot in life rather than striving to improve or break free and actually achieve our heart’s desire?
And when everyone around you is living the same lifestyle we all think it’s normal.
I started to learn about the Law of Attraction sure, but it wasn’t until I truly understood it then everything kind of started to made sense to me.
First, I never really believed it was a real thing, just some sort of fad which I never accepted into my own mind. And I definitely didn’t think it was for me.
Well, let me tell you, I couldn’t have been more wrong and am so thankful I have been enlightened.
Here, let me explain…
Sure, I was curious about everything but not enough, not until I watched a short documentary called ‘The Secret Documentary“.
That short documentary… left me hungry, soooo hungry for more information which forced me on a quest. I started reading books, not just novels but good, informative, life-changing, self-help books such as:
- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
- Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
- The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz
It really opened my eyes to bigger possibilities and how I really can put the Law of Attraction to work for me…
… if I only knew how.
Let’s find out.
The Three Biggest Obstacles
First, before we go on, there are a few obstacles we need to resolve…
If we intend to make the Law of Attraction work for us it is important to understand our three biggest obstacles and overcoming them.
We fear we can’t create what we desire
We stop ourselves before we even try to accomplish our goals. How many times have we wanted to do something but our fear of failure has allowed us to talk ourselves out of even trying?
I remember as a young girl I wanted to become an airline stewardess and fly all over the world helping others have a more comfortable flight. Someone told me I couldn’t be that because I wasn’t tall enough or pretty enough and I believed them. I let the fear of not being able to accomplish my dream, I didn’t even bother to check the requirements myself and seeing if I could qualify. Yes, it is true I was young however that is when our bad habits are developed.
Years later I discovered there are plenty of airline attendants of all heights.
My point is that I allowed fear to stop me.
No more fear… it’s time to remove it from your dictionary.
Our expectations don’t align with our desires
Sometimes we want something but we don’t believe good things can happen to us. The combination of desire and expectation is very powerful but they have to be aligned.
Expectations and desires actually come from a different place.
Desire comes from our soul and expectation comes from our ego. Often times we don’t really believe we deserve the good things in life so we… lower our expectations.
How can the universe deliver what we want if we confuse it by having different expectations?
We need to get them aligned and when we do it is a powerful force.
We don’t know how to focus on abundance
Most of us have been raised to believe that having an abundance of anything is foreign, negative or uncomfortable. Focus and intention are the critical elements required to manifest abundance, we will surely fail if we can’t keep these aligned.
For example. If we desire financial abundance but focus on our lack of money guess what we will receive?
Exactly what we focused on, more lack.
So now that we understand the main obstacles preventing us from benefiting from the Law of Attraction it is time to learn what we can do in order to…
Make Law of Attraction work for you
The Law of Attraction is a very real and powerful force within our universe and each of us has the ability to get it to work for us. Yes even you.
This will help us in achieving our deepest desires.
However, there are a few things we can do to help it works in our favour.
Know what it is you want
Whatever you really want in life is possible to achieve but you have got to believe in that.
You need to really know what you want, and be clear.
For example, it is one thing to say you want a new car, a new house and more money.
But it is much more clear if you were to say “I want a brand new red convertible, mustang with white leather interior. I see myself cruising down the highway with the music cranked and the wind blowing in my hair and I feel amazing, happy and free.”
See how that paints a much clearer picture? Add more detail if that’s what you like about the car.
It is important to clearly see your desires in your mind’s eye. Don’t take this lightly.
Keep in mind it is the vibrations of your emotions that make the Law of Attraction come alive.
Believe you can have it
Belief is the key to manifesting your desires. Without belief, it will not work for you.
Yes, it is difficult to believe in something you can’t yet see but that is exactly what you need to do. Believe you can have what you desire, you deserve what you desire.
I remember when I was just starting out testing the Law of Attraction.
I wanted a Caribbean cruise. I had wanted this for years.
I went online and checked out the available cruises. I looked at photos of all the different ships, I even checked out all the ports and called to see what adventures could be done in each port.
I kept thinking about this and checking online every chance I got. I really, really wanted it, but I could not afford it at the time.
Finally, about 3 years later we were visiting friends and they mentioned they were going on a cruise with some other friends and needed another couple in order to take advantage of a “reduced, group rate”.
We crunched the numbers and discovered we had enough savings to be able to take advantage of this reduced rate and go on this trip so we booked it.
OMG, I couldn’t believe this was happening, and to ME.
I kept pushing negative thoughts away and said to myself, “Yes this is happening and we are going to have a great time on this cruise”.
When the time came, we went on our cruise and had the time of our lives and this experience made me a firm believer in the Law of Attraction.
The stronger you focus on your desires the more of your desires will come true for you.
If you follow the first two steps and clearly use visualization and guided meditation to manifest your desires, you will find you will receive those desires quicker.
Try to infuse your mind with images using guided meditations that are designed to take you on a journey in your mind.
Let’s use the car example from above.
You picture the car in your mind, picture yourself driving the car with the roof down and the wind blowing your hair, you hear the music playing and you feel the emotions of that moment, you feel the excitement of owning that car.
This visualization works for anything you desire.
You need to have a clear picture in your mind’s eye before it can come to you.
Talk to yourself
Yes, it’s ok to talk to yourself. No, you are not going crazy, in fact, it’s actually more healthy.
I love this quote by Mahatma Ghandi,
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
your thoughts become your words,
your words become your actions,
your actions become your habits,
your habits become your values,
your values become your destiny.”
Now go back and repeat it 2 more times…
Hey, did you repeat it?
You can’t have the Law Of Attraction working for you if you can’t follow the simple steps.
Ok, good, now what that means is simply that what you think about on a daily basis will affect your emotions and actions for that day.
If you infuse your thoughts with what you desire it will have a direct effect on how you act, what you do and will actually change your emotions.
In other words…
You Become What You Think About All Day Long
Another important thing to note is that when you infuse your thoughts with your desires, your unconscious mind will automatically get to work and look for opportunities to make your desires a reality.
A great way to introduce positive thoughts into your mind is by using positive affirmations.
One positive thought creates another positive thought which in turn creates more positive thoughts. By practicing positive thinking every day your energy will change and you will attract more positive people and events in your life.
Ask better questions
Let’s examine two questions to see which will help you in life more.
“Why am I such a failure?”
“What can I do to become more successful?”
Which question would you believe is the better one?
You’re right, the second one. Do you know why?
That’s right because it is positive thinking and positive attracts more positive.
Here’s what happens…
When you ask yourself a question your subconscious mind will search for the answer.
So naturally, if you ask yourself why you are a failure your mind will find many reasons to support that one negative thought.
If however, you ask yourself what you can do to become more successful your mind will think of all the things you could do to be a success and propel you forward to your dreams and desires.
Will it be overnight?
At the time… no it won’t but when you get there it will feel like it.
It is critical to ask yourself questions in a positive way so be mindful of this.
Once you know what it is you desire and you have clearly pictured it in your mind’s eye and felt the emotion attached to achieving that desire it is important to let it go.
Think of it as a delicate butterfly. If you hold onto it to tightly it will die. Hold it loosely so it can breath and forever be free to enjoy life.
Understand that your desire is coming to you and think about it often but you have no need to keep asking for it.
You already have so many wonderful things in your life. It is important to be thankful for everything you already have.
When you practice daily gratitude you are literally infusing your thoughts with positive energy which will help manifest your desires in life.
Don’t just say the words, be truly thankful and feel the emotions of true gratitude.
How to Make Law of Attraction Work is not as complicated as I once thought.
In fact, I have seen examples of the Law of Attraction at works in my own life many many times.
I shared the cruise story but there are countless others since that time.
Understand the obstacles and try to minimize those negatives in your life.
Then take the time to clearly determine what it is you want in life.
Be clear, be specific.
Visualize your desire, clearly see yourself having received that desire, how do you feel.
Allow yourself to feel the emotions.
Ask yourself the right questions and keep them positive.
Let it go. You have done what you can do to let the universe know what you want to let it go and trust that it is on its way.
Be truly thankful for all the blessings you already have in your life, there are many.
There you have it. You can now make the Law of Attraction work for you.
Have you put the Law of Attraction to work for you?
