I want a new car! I want enough money in the bank to pay my bills! Oh, great Genie in the bottle, please make it so! Ok – stretching it a bit. However, it doesn’t take a Genie in a bottle to make your wishes come true. All you have to do is click your heels together 3 times and you will be home in your bed in Kansas! Kansas?! Can’t it be beachside in Maui, instead?! HA! Apologies to those living in Kansas – it’s a great state! Just trying to accentuate if we want our wishes to come true it’s solely up to us, not a Genie in a bottle. The power of our desires reside in our very own hands…er minds.
The book and movie production of “The Secret” caused quite a stir when it first surfaced. It instilled confidence that the secret powers could work wonders for anyone. Naysayers consider it more of a mysterious philosophy versus an absolute reality. Did you know there were actually other Law of Attraction books and films circulating before “The Secret”? The concept seemed to gain momentum after people all across the globe became acquainted with the Law of Attraction via “The Secret”. One day soon, I promise to write a blog post on many of the ways I applied the Law of Attraction philosophy via a vision board and it 100% manifested – I even have a photo to prove it. I will save that post for a topic on vision boards in the near future – stay tuned. So, how can you get started on manifesting your wishes and desires?
There are 3 easy steps to get started using the Law of Attraction.
Step one. Familiarize yourself with the topic of the Law of Attraction.
The first step is always research. Dig in and learn all you can. What is the Law of Attraction? The core of the Law of Attraction delves deep into our mindset and thoughts. The belief is when a person has positive thoughts then positive experiences will manifest as a result of those thoughts. Same with negative thoughts – if a person has negative thoughts then negative outcomes will be experienced. It can then be assumed if you think good thoughts about say wanting a new car and hold those thoughts tightly not letting any doubt creep in then you will get a new car. It may not happen overnight, but if you believe you receive (I remember that little nugget sentence from my older sister). For those negative Nellie’s, have you noticed that focusing on the negatives does indeed bring forth more negative outcomes? If you just think about it, how many legendary mentions are there of ‘thinking you can’ references? One off the top of my head I remember from the sitcom, ‘Laverne & Shirley’- just what makes that little ole ant, think he can move a rubber tree plant…ok you get what I’m saying I hope. It all surrounds the concept of the Law of Attraction. Even Albert Einstein was a believer and had a famous quote – “Imagination is everything, it is the preview of life’s coming attractions”. Wow!
Step two. Go get a journal or notebook in which you can write your wishes and desires.
Writing your wishes down on paper takes manifestation onto a whole different level. Writing helps your brain to firmly plant beliefs into its psyche. I’m not a brain scientist (at least in this life), but I have read there are correlated studies between writing things down on paper and manifestation. Writing also helps you to stop and reflect on your predominant thought patterns almost as if planting roots.
Step three. Take action toward your desired outcome.
How do you do that? Writing in a journal will help to track progress and as you write over and over again it seems to take a life all of it’s own as it begins to come into alignment with your wishes and desires. Focus on what you want to happen. Imagine that it is happening and how you would feel including any emotions as it is happening. An example, you want a new or different car. Write it in your journal over and again. Close your eyes and just imagine you are in that car driving it. What music will be playing as you drive? How will the car smell? How excited will you feel as you drive that shiny new car down the highway? All these thoughts will help to manifest your wish into reality.
I know to some realists, this philosophy can sound a bit farfetched. But, I am a living testament that believing in something so strongly will manifest your desires. Only one thing I’d like to mention is to not be particular about a date – timing is everything and it is also unpredictable. I always had the mindset that I knew I was going to get something I wanted I just didn’t know when but it would come when the time was right. I knew for absolute certain it was going to come to me – that is one constant I absolutely could count on. Time can pass, but don’t give up. Some people may say the Law of Attraction didn’t work for them but in actuality it did – it worked to give them more of the same of what they believed in again and again. If you think it won’t happen – it won’t. So, believe it will!
Recapping – do a little research on the topic of the Law of Attraction to get inspiration. Watch the movie “The Secret” or read the book. Check out other books on the subject to get more acquainted. Get a journal and start writing down your desires. And, take action in making your dreams come true.
Blessings to all,
