You have undoubtedly heard or met what is called the law of attraction and its power that has the tendency to bring forth what you deeply believe in. Then, if it works so well, why is not everyone who follows, attends seminars or read books about it wealthy and successful, and most of all happy?
If all you need to do is think or have positive thoughts, you should be able to create a better world for yourself overnight, shouldn’t you, so what is wrong this picture?
Well, it often is because most people see, listen or read about the law of attraction once and then within a few days, forget all about it. Most of them will never actually use what they have learned, practice it and internalize it. You see, it takes a strong commitment, a conscious pledge to make positive change occur, and certainly on a subconscious level.
What you should realize is that even right now, the old you is doing everything in his power to prevent change. It comes up with excuses for not reading this post. It procrastinates and makes excuses for not believing in the ideas of this inner power, even if they are right for you. The reason why is because the 'old you' is comfortable, it has a built in survival mechanism to protect the status quo, and that is why change is so difficult for lots of people.
The law of attraction when used on a surface level always fails. Thousands and thousands of people attend self-improvement or positive thinking seminars, or buy books and videos, and yet very few people derive permanent benefits from them.
It is not because the information is not working or is not valid, it is! It is just that what you hear or read deals only with your conscious mind, but that mind is not the engine that powers your life. It is rather your subconscious or unconscious part of your mind from which your habits, behaviors, and outlooks spring automatically.
Lasting Change Begins Within the Unconscious
So the key to permanent and lasting change is to go straight into your unconscious and to rewire how you think about yourself and your future. This drawing power says that what you believe determines what you make real. You may not trust me, but this is nothing new. In fact, the law of attraction is even ancient. Great thinkers and truth-seekers have been saying it for hundreds of years.
“Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”- Marc Aurelius, Roman Emperor (121-180 AD)
You may like it or not, but you have now to break through an imprinted mind script that is made for most years of wrong instructions. At the deepest level of your being, you hold many negative beliefs and habits. You have to replace them by anchoring new ways and beliefs into your subconscious, where ideas are formed, and reinforced by perceptions, and thus made true.
Do you still not believe in the influence your unconscious might have?
Then watch ‘The Amazing Power of Your Mind, ’ and you will be amazed by the truth of it all.
How to Make the Law of Attraction Work for You
To make the law of attraction work, you must at first rewrite the way you think and how you perceive your reality. Inside your subconscious mind, for years now, you have encrypted what you see as the truth. Remember, what you accept to believe as true is true, or become true.
Whatever desire you have, if you have been told all your life that you will never amount to anything or that being wealthy is something which is impossible, then that is the mindset linked to your subconscious, and then, that is the reality you experience.
So how do you begin to make this law of reciprocity work for you? Most of you have seen the movie “The Secret,” and yet there are a few more tips to back up this drawing law. Discover them now:
Not Worrying about How or When
You do not have to understand how or when it might happen. It makes no sense to try to control the Universe by telling it how your life needs to unfold. Just give a listening ear, a smile or some kind attention to people around you.
Be thankful and give goodness to others while letting that inner power influence your heart. It will, in turn, activate the law of attraction which will pull the universal flow, and improve the conditions of your life enormously.
Visualizing What You Want
The power of intention says to visualize what you want to achieve as brightly and vividly as possible. Whether it is in the form of a picture, a feeling or words, the crucial point is to see yourself as if you have already achieved that desire or objective.
Observe things and perceive the colors. Listen to the sounds. Smell the aromas, feel the touch of the items around you, walk through the whole place in your mind, getting in as many details as you would like them to be in your reality. At first, your images may be a bit unclear, but clarity improves with practice. In fact, the greater the details, the better ammo you are giving your unconscious mind to believe it and then to act on it.
If for some reason, you cannot visualize, get in touch with a memory where you were pleased. Recreate the scene and relive the moment. It will bring forward a positive emotion that will mentally connect with your future desires in your subconscious.
Manifesting Something New
If you want to manifest something new, you have to get into the habit of creating things you already have. By this, I mean to look at your current possessions, for example, pick an object or someone that makes you feel good and declare: “I have …” and fill in the blank. Then start with stuff you do not have.
You have to focus your intention on what you have now and have already manifested. You may think that this process is strange but works like magic. When you visualize, feel, and manifest what you have previously gotten, it intensifies the power of the law of attraction, and your focus to bring what you want and changes your whole reality.
Creating Your Desires While Sleeping
Sleeping time is a great moment to contribute to creating desires. As you get in bed and are ready to drift off to sleep, ask to be ONE with your wishes, in heart, mind, and feeling. Begin by saying things such as “I am one with financial freedom,” “I am one with wealth,” “I am one with my dream house,” etc.
Whatever your wish is, feel and breathe it entirely while going to sleep. Then the next day, nurture this feeling of being one with your desires because it is a huge and vital point. This way, you will accelerate your path to the goal. Become your desires in your sleep, and you will draw the power of intention to bring it into your existence.
Accepting Not Knowing How
When you imagine what you want, but have no idea about which steps to take to get it, then your first move is to accept that you do not know how. Do not be afraid and be at peace with that. It is where you are right now. Worrying or wondering will not help.
So let the power of the universe take care of things, it knows how better than you do. In other words, just let the law of attraction carry on with its plan, even if it may not be how you expected it to be. All you need to do is act on the opportunities that a situation brings to you. Let the drawing power of the universe move through you and show you what to do.
Letting it Happen
It is great to do visualizations and use affirmations. But remember that your inner power is like gravity. It just pulls in what it needs. You need to be open and allow the unconscious manifestation of the law of attraction. It will help you not to be stressed.
You should expect good things to come out of nowhere, spontaneously revealing themselves to you. Good things may have just appeared before. So let it happen again. When visualizing or using positive thinking, see things as if they were already a reality. This way, you separate yourself from doubt and set in motion the self-actualization of your desire.
Recognize You Deserve All of It
You must understand that you deserve everything your heart wishes for, and not feel the least guilty about it because, for many of us, we have an unconscious guilt about being happy or wealthy. But why should you feel remorseful about being happy or rich?
Well, it is because somewhere along the line, our parents, our schools, our beliefs or our friends have influenced us into believing that we have to suffer or pay the price for happiness and riches. Or that just when things start to get good, they all turn bad, and if you don’t mind me saying, all of that stuff is just all crap.
People say those things because of they, themselves, have a belief system of limitation and lack. If you wait until you feel deserving of having pleasant thoughts about your life, you will end up convincing your unconscious that you are undeserving of happiness, wealth or both, and the result is that you will be unhappy and unsuccessful in most of your endeavors and undertakings.
It is not selfish or wrong to ask the law of attraction to help you get your desires or to be happy, regardless of where you are in life. Happiness is a means to an end which is success and well-being, and it is also an end in and of itself that we all desire.
Trust in the Power of Intention
Believing and trusting in the power of intention will allow you to create the mental habit to be happy the majority of the time and winning in almost every circumstance you encounter.
The last and final point I want to make doesn't think, don’t try, and just do. Thinking and trying gives your subconscious the wrong message. Let your unconscious autopilot steer you in the right direction. It is not hard if you don’t think or try but just do.
Scientists are just catching up with the immense power of the mind to heal disease, to overcome extreme handicap spontaneously. Countless of people spend hours every day conditioning their physical body to look and feel their best rather than developing their most valuable resource, their minds. The law of attraction and its power shows that the more you condition your thoughts for what you want, the more it will respond.
