But the Law of Attraction doesn't work for me!


 I cannot tell you how many times I have heard or read this on-line. Some people find out about the Law of Attraction and only understand it on a very superficial level. They misunderstand the Law of Attraction to be some magical tool and if they wish hard enough surely whatever they want will manifest. When this doesn't immediately happen they get disheartened and discard the Law of Attraction as rubbish. Maybe you are one of those people? If you are... I have good news for you. Not only does the Law of Attraction work.....it is working in your life right now as you read this post! 

A good analogy is gravity. Do you think gravity is magic? Of course not. Most people correctly believe it to be a scientifically understood process. The Law of Attraction is exactly the same. Its not some mumbo jumbo magical process but instead a scientific law that operate in everyone's lives all the time whether they believe it or not. The same as gravity.

So the question is not whether it works but how to make it work for me?

Well the answer is more than just asking for what you want and hoping for the best. It is a matter of life choices. To really harness it to work for you is truly a life style. As Abraham Hicks so beautifully put it.....its about following your bliss. Your emotions are your compass telling you whether you are on the right track or not. Simply put, whilst you are feeling good you are attracting great things into your life....another word commonly used for this is "allowing". If you are feeling negative emotions you are generally attracting more negative things into your life.


So the choices you make in your life....to choose whether to allow positive and good feeling thoughts versus negative and bad feeling thoughts and following up on that by doing what makes you feel happy is the difference between failure or success in harnessing the Law of Attraction. Even negative experiences can have a positive spin put on them by understanding that they create contrast. If you know what you don't want, it creates contrast which shows you what you do want and by following and focusing on the solution rather than the problem you can turn things around immediately.

Tools such as Dream Boards and Wish lists, Affirmations, Visualising and Meditation (click on the links for detailed posts on these) all have their place in helping you hone your skills and achieving what you hope, wish and dream about, but at the end of the day your emotions give you the indicator as to whether you are on the right path. You are the creator of your own destiny, make sure you are creating your hearts desires!

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

Feelings are the Key!

Visulisation, Wish Boards and affirmations all have their place in assisting us to change our thought process to one of abundance and happiness and when we are sending out these positive vibrations to the Universe, this in turn then attracts those things that we want into our lives. But how do you know if you are on the right track?

The key to knowing you are in the process of receiving that which you want into your life is how you are feeling. If you are feeling bad, sad, depressed, low, angry, jealous or any of the other negative emotions that we all feel time to time, just know that you have put a halt or are slowing down the process of you getting that which you wish for. Whether that is wealth, health, happiness, meeting the ideal partner or any other wishes you may have, the negative emotions you are feeling are slowing down the process and could in fact be attracting that which you don't wish for into your life!

 Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life.
~ Burton Hills~


The good news is that this can be reversed very easily. If you know what it is making you feel bad then simply change it! I know this sounds easier said than done, but it is very simple, if something or someone is making you feel bad then walk away from that situation. Obviously if it is a friend or relative that is making you feel bad it is easier said than done to remove them from your life especially if it is a person who is physically or otherwise dependant on you. But what is possible is how you react to that persons negativity and how often you spend time with them. Maybe you could try to educate them about the Law of Attraction and they can shift their point of attraction to a more positive vibe or maybe it is about how you manage your own emotions when around them. In the short term if someone whom you cannot immediately write out of your life experience is affecting your vibration it can help to simply leave their presence when they are being particularly negative......go do something that makes you feel better, read a book, listen to some uplifting music, play with a pet.......whatever it is that makes you feel good will immediately shift your point of attraction to a positive one and thereby attract positive things into your life. In the long term, if you are practising feeling good then strange as it sounds you may find that negative people and situations automatically leave your life or they themselves will change their vibration and no longer be affecting your life experience negatively.

 But what if I don't know why I am feeling bad?

It can be very difficult to always pinpoint what it is exactly that is making us feel bad and you may think that could be an obstacle to changing the way that you are feeling. But again there is good news.....it doesn't really matter what it is making us feel bad, simply change that emotion by thinking of something that make you feel happy, go for a walk, put that uplifting music on, reminisce about something that makes you feel great (a birth or wedding or holiday etc) it doesn't matter what you think about or do as long as you are feeling good! Be secure in the knowledge that it is the way that you are feeling that will determine if your Visualisations, Wish list or requests to the Universe are coming true! By changing that emotion you are literally creating your future, all the things that are negative in your life will change to positive things automatically, good things will start to happen to you, how strong your belief is in this and how often you feel positive emotions (Happiness, love, joy, contentment, abundance etc) will have an impact on how quickly you will see results. But be assured, if you are feeling good then good things are on the way!

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~
