The Law of Attraction and Recognising Sent Opportunities

 Have you been applying The Law of Attraction in your life? Making your wish list, your dream board, visualising daily and then wondering why the things that you want are not manifesting in your life? It could be that the Universe is sending you the answers but that you are not recognising them!
The Universe doesn't conjure up items, money and the people that we wish to attract by magic. What actually happens is that once you have understood what it is that you want in your life, visualised it daily, given thanks as if it is already here and believed that it will come you, the Universe starts things rolling. It puts things in motion that will lead to you getting your hearts desire but you will still have a part to play. To explain this I would like to repeat an old story that you may have already heard.

There is a major storm coming to a town, and the residents are advised to evacuate. A car drives by a neighbor’s house, and the driver yells out to the neighbor. “Do you need a ride?” The man declines, saying, “God will save me.”

The rain becomes fierce, and now the town is flooded. A neighbor paddles by in a boat. He asks the man if he wants to get onboard. The man answers, “No, God will save me.”

The man’s house becomes so flooded, that he seeks safety up on his roof. A helicopter flies by, with the pilot yelling out, “We’ll lower our ladder so you can get on the copter.” Again, the man declines.

Eventually, the man drowns, and goes before God. The man angrily asks God why He let him die. “I’ve always been a righteous man. I never missed church. Why didn’t you save me?”
God answered, “I sent you a man in a car, and a man in a boat, and a man in a helicopter.”

The moral of the story being that we could be staring at the answers to our wishes right in the face and not be able to recognise them. I would like to tell you a true story of a businessman I know. He had been asking the Universe to send him more money. He wanted to buy a bigger house for his family, be able to afford to decorate and furnish it and then take his family on a long holiday as one of his sons had just recovered from Leukemia. He asked, he made a vision board, he visualised and he knew it would come true (after all other things he had asked for had come to him in the past) but as he waited and waited and waited he started to question The power of the Universe because he wasn’t seeing cheques landing on his doorstep, he wasn’t seeing people queuing up at the door to give him contracts and he started to doubt. Meanwhile a scruffily dressed man had been asking to see him every day with a crackpot idea for an invention. It was something seemingly stupid, that could never work, so after hearing about it briefly as he entered the office one day he thereafter ignored the man and instructed his secretary to not let him into the office. 

Day after day when he entered the office he saw the man sitting outside always pleading with him to give him a  few minutes to talk about his invention. After this had been going on for a few weeks, annoyed, he finally decided to give the man 5 minutes just to get rid of him! 

The man launched into his spiel about his invention enthusiastically talking about how and where it could be sold. The businessman suddenly sat up and took notice. Not of the product that the man had invented, but of the technology behind it! When he questioned the man he found out that the man had patented the technology so it was legally his to do as he pleased with. To cut a long story short. They both ended up making millions and the businessman learned a valuable lesson.

One of the most important thing about The Law of the Attraction is not to pre-judge how your wish may come true but to be vigilant and to explore carefully any opportunity that may come your way as it may be the answer that you have been looking for. Sometimes it may be easy and could come in the form of more work, a better job or even cheques landing on the doorstep but sometimes it could need a little more diligence on your part.

The same principle applies when looking for that perfect life partner or career or anything on your wish list. Don’t try and tell the Universe how you want it to come about. Just put your wish out there, follow the basic principles of the Law of Attraction (see the post Law of Attraction: The Basics) positivity, visualisation and belief (allowing). Then watch as the Universe will set into motion the means and ways for your dreams to become reality.

How to make your dreams come true!

What is it that you dream about? Do you even know what it is that you really want right now? What are your life goals? When you know the answers to these questions then you are half way there to manifesting them.

Some times we get so bogged down with the mundane struggles of life, paying the bills, fixing the car, looking after our kids, that we sometimes forget the wider picture. Surely as a young teenager you didn't think 'wow! I cant wait to grow up so I can worry about bills and kids and keeping my car on the road!'

Of course you didn't. Most of us had bigger dreams and goals. Maybe some of them came true and maybe a whole lot of them fell by the wayside. Maybe your dreams changed as you got older. Either way, I am here to let you know that you really can manifest your dreams into reality. Its within your power to do so.

“Whatever you create in your life
you must first create in your imagination.”
~Tycho Photiou~

The first step though is to know what it is that you truly want right now. I know that you wouldn't go to the supermarket and buy fish if you don't even like fish and you wouldn't go and buy meat if you were vegetarian. You are very clear about your tastes in food and you need to be that specific about the rest of your dreams and desires. Take time out when you know that the house is quiet and put pen to paper. Write out some lists. Start with a 'Life Goal' list. List every life goal that you want to accomplish, don't feel shy, think big! If you want to be a successful business person, write it down. If you want to be a doctor or a lawyer, write it down. If you want to be a successful artist or simply a person who is able to help others, write it down. List it clearly. If you have more than one thing that you want to accomplish write them down, The Universe is bountiful it is not going to say "you have to choose only one!"

Then you can move on to a relationship list, a financial list, a material possession list and so on. Be specific. Some times it may require that you acknowledge what it is that you don't want in order to see what it is that you really do want.

Once these are done, you can then do the fun part. Every day, as many times as you like, visualise something on your list coming true. Taste it. See it. Feel it. Enjoy it. Send thanks out into the Universe as if it is already come true. Most of all, believe it and allow it. Then one day in the future take a real good look at your lists and be amazed as you start to realise that The Law of Attraction really works and your dreams are coming true.

"I am no longer cursed by poverty because I took possession of
my own mind, and that mind has yielded me every material thing I want,
and much more than I need. But this power of mind is a universal one,
available to the humblest person as it is to the greatest."
~Andrew Carnegie~

Create a wish list

I thought I would tell you about a positive surprising experience I had today whilst I was sorting through a pile of old papers and letters that had been forgotten in the back of a cupboard.

A few years back, when I had only just learned about the Law of Attraction, I decided to write my own wish list of all of the things that I wanted. Being new to this, my requests were fairly modest.  I asked for a new lawn mower as mine had broken down, I wanted a new phone, better health as I was quite ill at the time, a holiday to Jamaica (I even specified the hotel), some new clothes for a certain event and many more things. I visualised them, thanked the Universe for them (as if they had already come to me) and then accidentally the list was swept into a pile with other papers and shoved in the back of the cupboard and forgotten about. At the time they were written, although modest requests, they were quite out of my reach financially.

When re-reading them today I was absolutely amazed by the outcome of these requests. Every single one of them had come true!

Within a few weeks of the requests I had received a new lawnmower through a freecycle organisation and I didn't have to pay a penny, I was bought a new mobile phone as a gift, and guess was the exact model I wanted even though I hadn't told anyone. My health improved dramatically, Whilst searching for deals to Jamaica, the very hotel that I wanted was on special offer and I managed to afford it due to unexpected cash coming my way. My mum decided to treat me to new clothes even though I hadn't mentioned the event that I needed them for to her. Every single request had come true to my amazement and all of them within a few weeks of my list being written!

“You can have anything you want if you will give up the belief that you can't have it.” 
Dr. Robert Anthony

Sometimes it takes experiences like these to give me a kick. To remember how wonderful and bountiful the Universe really is and how powerfully The Law of Attraction plays a part in our lives.

Even though the Law of Attraction plays a major role in my everyday life and I practise gratitude and forgiveness daily. This has now given me the push I needed to make a new list and this time I plan to make it a little more ambitious!

Give it a go yourself. You have absolutely nothing to loose. Write it on a scrap of paper as I did or write it on a fancy piece of card and attach pictures of your requests alongside it to make it a part wish list - part vision board. Its up to you how you do it, but remember, follow it up with positive thought, vibrations, actions and belief that you will get it. And then, just watch as the things you have asked for come true!

Building Confidence Using The Law Of Attraction

Self confidence is the key to success. Just about every life coach, psychologist and other professionals agree on this, but it is easier said than done.

Using the Law of Attraction properly it is possible to change the way that you feel about yourself and how others see you. I know to someone who has suffered abuse and bullying at the hands of others may find this difficult to believe and some people will indeed need specialist help to get over their past. But there is one thing to remember......The Law of Attraction is shaping your life right now whether you know it or not.  So therefore it is possible to start to change the way that you think about yourself and your life immediately. Even if it is in small steps. Please see my post about telling a new life story for more information on this. Forgiveness is also a powerful tool in which you can change your life and help you to believe in yourself, see the post for Forgiveness and the Law of Attraction for help with this.

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."
Harvey Fienstein

Affirmations can be a very strong tool to start with. Instead of having negative thoughts running inside your head you must nip them in the bud and change them. For example when you done something silly, don't castigate yourself over it. Don't think 'I am so stupid, I never do anything right' or 'Who would want me, I have nothing to offer'. You need to immediately catch that thought and forcibly change it to 'I do a lot of things that are right' and 'I have a lot to offer and am a wonderful person'. It might not be easy at first and it might not seem real, but if you stick at it, eventually you will train your mind to think much more positively and it will come much easier to you.

Affirmations are a wonderful way to get into the practise of self belief. Some people say them each morning before they start their day and the last thing at night before bed, but you can say them at any time of the day and always use them when self doubt starts to creep back in. Here are a few:

  • I have the right to happiness and abundance
  • I am worthy of all the good things that the Universe can offer me.
  • I am successful in all my endeavors
  • I am flexible and open to change in all aspects of my life.
  • I am a money magnet
  • I can make my own choices and decisions
  • I have the power to change myself and therefore my life story
  • I am beautiful inside and out
  • I deserve to be loved
  • I choose happiness whatever my circumstances
  • I am able to forgive others and understand their motives
  • I have forgiven myself for any past mistakes and I believe that to do my best is enough.
You can use any affirmations that suit you and your current situation, but remember they must always be positive. Some people find it helpful to say theirs in front of the mirror. Do whatever makes you comfortable. But the most important thing is to keep it up. Don't expect instant results though, it does take a while to change the negative thought processes of a lifetime. But if you are vigilant and stop the negative thought processes even as they enter your mind, you can and will stamp them out and replace them with positive and joyful thoughts. As you know, The Law of Attraction works like a magnet and will attract whatever vibrations you are sending out, so if they are negative vibrations then the things you will attract into your life will be negative, but if it is largely positive thoughts, emotions and vibrations that you are thinking and sending out, then you will be attracting positive things, emotions and people into your life.

Your life can change for the better right here right now. Just make up your mind to do it and the sky is the limit!
