The answer is YES! It always has and always will.
With the launch of 'The Secret'- Rhonda Byrne 2006, many people thought, "right! Positive thinking was the way to go." Then they did their vision boards and asked the Universe for things and nothing came forward what they are wanting, at this point you hear people say, "it doesn't work for me,it's a load of rubbish!"
Long before the book was ever written, even long before the written word, the Law of Attraction was in action. It's not a matter of it working or not - it is just simply there in the background, just as gravity and daylight , they are just there.
However, there are ways you can harness the power of the Law of Attraction and bring about the life you truly deserve and have done since the day you were born.
Start Aligning Yourself
Yes you ask the Universe what you want, but then it's up to you to seize opportunities as they arise. Stop waiting for it to fall into your lap - you need to take action. Do things that give you true joy - do them daily, more often.
Any decisions you make should come from the heart. You need to ask yourself "will this expand me or shrink me?" Any question with the answer that would make you grow should be the way to go at all times. Yes it may be scary but in the long run you would have found the secret to lasting happineess.
How do you know if a decision will expand you or shrink you? Well simply;
The expansive decision will energise you, make you feel alive, you never feel tired with it.
The shrinkage decision will drain you energetically, physically and emotionally. You're not really bothered about it.
Sometimes the expansive decisions are scary, but you should "Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway"- Susan Jeffers.
An example of a shrinkage decision for me was in my place of work. I was in a job I hated. I used to excuse it because I was working with people I liked. It was a big corporation that was cutting back it's staff, making colleagues do the jobs of many colleagues. New management came in and took over and the rules became even more impossible and unrealistic. It was soul destroying. This is not the way life should be, your soul should be flourishing. Your soul should be singing out loud and proud!
I knew I had to get out, I knew it was time. It was time to make a difference in the world, to my world.
It's Down To You
Are you hoping for that knight in shining armour to "rescue" you from your life of mediocrity. I'm going to be blunt here, it's not happening! Any change has to come from you.
Are you waiting for that push for you to start your new life? For that job to finish? For your partner to leave? For the poor economy? It's never going to happen. YOU are the only one that can change YOU.
Stop waiting for permission or likeability to start that new business, the book, the dream life. You can give yourself permission to do it. You are a big girl now!
People that wait for an external push will always be waiting. You'll never feel ready, but take the risks. It's on you to get out and fix your life.
Just Do It!
Another reason people feel the Law of Attraction is not working for them is, that they have huge amazing dreams, then they think of the enormity of those dreams and fears kicks in and they think "I'll never achieve that," so they don't even start towards their dreams. The answer is dream big,act small. Take small steps daily towards your goals. Every step along the way is a step closer, a mile closer, a thousand miles closer, and then you would have reached your goal and you'll look back and think it wasn't so hard after all, but you have to start somewhere.
Follow Your Heart
When you are living a life that is true to you, the long term impact is a beautiful soul and life. Your heart can make a beautiful world that you've not seen yet.
J.k. Rowling is the perfect example of someone pushing through the fear and doing it anyway. She was a struggling single parent on benefits, but she had this dream of writing a book about a wizard boy, Harry Potter. Her book got rejected ten times by publishing houses. After the first time she could have played it safe and not put her manuscript out there again and got herself a low paid job in a supermarket, but she didn't, she perservered time and time again. This was good fear and she pushed through it and now she is a best selling author and is a household name.
If a choice doesn't do all this for you, the answer should be an unresounding NO!
Control Your Thoughts
We've all heard if we think positive, positive things will happen. Yet we always lapse into default thinking. The thinking we find ourselves when we put ourselves down, the thinking that tells us we can't do something, the thinking that says something happened bad in the past so will happen again. It's this automatic thinking that will deter you from having a loving relationship, abundance, successful career or from being truly happy.
Remember what you focus on you will get more of. You need to break that automatic thinking and Mel Robbins came up with the 5 Second Rule. This is where you catch yourself in the moment thinking negatively and you countdown backwards, 54321! This counting down backwards switches what you were thinking, it breaks that train of thought and then you can take action.
An example would be, " I would like to start my own business," then the thoughts creep in - "no I'm not intelligent enough, I have no funding, I'm ok the way I am."
Stop it! 54321
Yes! I will find out about doing something and I'll do it now, I'll look into that course or information right now!
YOU will thank you in the long run.
That initial thought that you came up with,it's your inner compass, it was your driving force, you wouldn't have had the thought if it wasn't, so don't you deserve even just finding out about it?
Visualize Yourself a Great Life
Visualize your dreams and goals daily. It's not just about seeing it and wishing it to be. It's about feeling it in your soul. That it makes you cry - it makes your soul sing.
Daily meditation helps with this.you need to feel it - touch it, smell it - how does it make you feel inside? Do you have that butterfly feeling. The Universe can do no ther than deliver it, as it feels so real to you, remember you get more of what you focus on.
Be The Difference You Want To Be
If something is not right in your life, change it.
The inertia of life, the just going along with it is draining and tiring. It's going the way of least resistance, it may be easier in the short term - but long term will have more of the same. An endless life of nothingness.
You will keep doing the same things over and over because you haven't got the energy to do anything else.
If you have a problem, figure a solution out and fix it. Really you can't complain about things if you do nothing about it to bring about change. Put up or shut up!
It's time to break your non-functioning habits. Create that dream. Create your morning rountine. Take that first step.
Be More Selfish
It's time to give yourself more self love and discipline and to go out and do your own thing.
Nobody else is going to show your children how you've gone out into the world and followed your dreams. That's your duty as a loving parent to show them the way. Everybody should be more lovingly selfish, that means by not hurting anybody else
If you're out there doing your thing, you will be more energised, your family will pick up on this, it's a win win situation. They get the happy mum and wife that gives them inspiration to have a wonderful life.
How can you not go for your dreams when so much can come from it, for your loved ones, for your community, for humanity.
If you're not being selfish and end up in a dead end job - you bring home the negative energy, the rubbish about your bad day. How can this be good for anyone?
It's time to be selfish!
When my 'enough is enough' moment came, I knew what I had to do. I knew deep down what I wanted and what I wanted was to work for myself from home.
I had wanted this for so long and yes initially I put it off, but there does come a time when your soul is literally screaming out to take some action. I discovered an online course where I felt at home immediately. There is a strong sense of community, something I wasn't expecting. They talk about Law of Attraction, energy and mindsets, all things I had read extensively about. It didn't seem to be your normal online business opportunity. It felt like home. I WAS home.
