I learned the most valuable piece of wisdom in 2009 when I discovered the Law of Attraction. I understood the power of our minds and how it effects the world around us.
What is the Law of Attraction?
For those of you that have no idea what I’m talking about, let me give a brief explanation of the Law of Attraction. It is a universal law that applies to everyone and everything stating that like attracts like. So your thoughts, feelings and the energy you give off will attract things into your life that aligns with those thoughts, feelings, and energies.
For example, if you are focused on how much debt you’re in and it constantly has you worried, you will attract more circumstances that cause debt and worry. On the flip side, if you are always feeling positive and talking about how good things always fall into your lap, you will continue attracting amazing things.
When I learned this, I turned my whole life around in just 3 months. I changed my mindset from lack to abundance. I went from a hundred year old house in a small town with bad schools to my dream home in the best school district around.
The Secret focuses on 3 key pillars to attracting what you want: Ask, Believe, Receive.
Ask & Visualize
The first, ask, should also include visualization. It’s not enough to simply ask for what you want. You need to imagine yourself as if you’ve already manifested it. What is your life like? How are you different? Picture it over and over again. Go over as many details as possible.
When manifesting my dream home, I visualized everything I wanted in the house – 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, bonus room, big backyard, great school district. I imagined myself decorating the house just like I wanted and pictured myself pulling into the driveway after work and playing in the backyard with my daughter. I thought about the layout of the house, the colors, the location and everything else I could conjure up in my mind to send a clear message to the universe on exactly what I wanted.
Believe in the Law of Attraction With Unwavering Faith
The second step is believe. This is where most people get tripped up. How many times have you thought about a huge goal, then immediately tell yourself every reason why that wouldn’t happen? Or how you just can’t see how it would happen? I used to do this all the time! This is where you have to hand it over to the universe and trust it will be delivered. Don’t worry about how or when. Just have faith that if you stay positive and focused on your goal, it will manifest.
Think about driving to a new destination and using GPS on your phone to get there. You type in the address and trust that the GPS will get you there. You know there may be curves and bumps in the road, and maybe even a detour, but eventually, you will end up at the correct destination. That level of believing is needed for the Law of Attraction to work. You will most likely encounter some obstacles, but trust that if something goes wrong, it’s because the universe hasn’t something even better in store for you.
When I was searching for my dream home, I found 2 other homes prior to finding “the one”. When I put bids on both, and they fell through. I could’ve allowed that to frustrate me and give up, but I told myself what was meant to be would be. I trusted the universe had something better for me, and I was absolute right.
Be Open to Receiving and Taking Aligned Action
What does it mean to be open to receiving? It means preparing as if your desire is already on the way. For me, that meant getting a realtor and looking at houses. It meant going to the bank and figuring out what I qualified for, getting moving boxes, and packing my things.
The thing about aligned, inspired action is that it won’t feel like work. It will feel good. It will be fun and exciting and feel easy to you. You will get these ideas that make you want to jump into action. Go with it! Listen to your intuition and get into action!
Take Action NOW!
When I learned about the Law of Attraction, my life changed in so many incredible ways. Over time, as the Law of Attraction became more mainstream, I discovered that most people didn’t manifest things as effortlessly as I did. I spent years researching and trying to uncover what was blocking people from using the Law of Attraction effectively and found 5 common barriers to using the Law of Attraction effectively. I have a 5-day FREE course that walks through uncovering and overcoming these barriers. You can sign up here. I look forward to continuing on this journey towards manifesting your dreams!
