If you have heard of “The Secret”, then you are probably familiar with The Law of Attraction. In basic terms, it is the theory that like energy attracts like energy. So if you are positive and have a high vibration, then that is what you will attract. The theory has been around for many years, but has become more known in recent years because of “The Secret.” It can be worth your while to get acquainted with; changing the direction of your life. It certainly did mine.
First, you need to know what you want. The more detailed you are, the better. Imagine what you desire in your mind. Think about the outcome you want – the end result. Instead of imagining a big check coming to you, imagine how more money would change your life, and what you would do with the money.
Think about your passions and see yourself living out those passions. The Universe responds to passion. The Universe wants for you what you want for yourself, so make sure you are clear about what you want.
If you want more money to buy that big art studio, then see that in your head. If you want to travel around the world, then see yourself going to all the places you want to go. In your vision see yourself happy, healthy and excited. Feel that excitement every time you imagine. The more excited you get about your vision, the better.
This can be hard for some people because they don’t yet have what they want. Think of when you were a kid and you imagined what your future would be like as an adult. It was exciting to imagine what that future would look like. It is the same thing. Be like you were when you were little – daydreaming about an exciting future.
A great place to start is implementing the law of attraction is by putting up a vision board. A vision board is just that- a board with your vision on it. It will help you to visualize and focus on what you want. Mine is a cork board attached to the backboard of my desk.
Every time I sit at my desk I see it. By having it in front of me, it helps me to stay aligned, keep my energy high, and be in tune with my thoughts. Mine has pictures of places I want to travel to, cars I want to drive, and adventures I want to have.
After about eight months of having my vision board up, I won a trip for two to Milan, Italy to see a fashion show worth $4,000. Unless you are a buyer, the press, or know the designer, it is very hard to get into a fashion show. Money will not buy your way in. Three weeks later I won a trip to New York for four people worth $10,000. So, why not try one for yourself, you never know what may come your way!
See yourself as already having what you want, and know it is coming to you. Once you put it out there, it is DONE. This is when you let the Universe do its magic. Allow the Universe to take over and bring what you want to you.
This is when you need to detach from the outcome. That is harder than it sounds, but a necessary step. If you keep thinking about your stuff not being there yet, that is what the Universe will hear. And that is what you will get; more of it not being there. Instead shift your thinking.
The best way to shift your thinking is with gratitude. Every day think of what you are grateful for. Write it down in a gratitude journal, think of all the things you are grateful for on a walk, and before you fall asleep. Doing this before you fall asleep puts you in a better feeling mood when you wake up. Like attracts like.
If you are in a bad mood, you will attract more situations that put you in a bad mood. Decide each day to raise your vibration. The easiest way to do this is by thinking of what you are grateful for. The Universe responds to gratitude. By being grateful for what you have tells the Universe that you have everything you want. This sounds contradictory, but it actually works in your favor. By saying you have everything you want, you will receive more of the same.
Another way to raise your vibrations is by saying affirmations. They should be short, to the point, and in the present tense. The more you say them and the more you BELIEVE, the better.
Some affirmations include:
• Abundance is always flowing to me.
• I am attracting wonderful things to me all the time.
• Money flows to me effortlessly.
• I release weight easily.
When I go for my daily walk I first think of all the things I am grateful for. Sometimes I think of these things over and over again, until I am really feeling good. It makes me happy. Then I repeat affirmations over and over again. Many times I have felt a shift in my energy, which is the point. The higher your vibration is, the more good things will come to you.
Receiving sounds like it is the easy part, right? Well, not always. It may take some action on your part. This is the time to listen to your intuition. Watch for synchronicities.
The Universe is always guiding you toward what you want, but if you aren’t listening, it will slip away. Pay attention to how you are feeling. If something feels good, go with it. The Universe responds to your good feelings.
I left my career because it no longer felt fulfilling to me. I was not passionate about it anymore. I took some time off to work on myself and figure out what to do next.
I asked the Universe what my life purpose was. The answer I got back is to do something you love. I already knew that finding something you love was key to living a fulfilling, purposeful life. The problem was I have so many interests that I didn’t know how to choose just one.
My first love is art, but after having followed another path all these years, my art was not going pay the bills overnight. Then I noticed synchronicities happening.
I kept seeing signs to start a website. At first, I dismissed the signs, thinking it was too difficult and that I wouldn’t be able to make a living from it. But, I kept seeing more and more synchronicities. The Universe was not letting up!
So I did a ton of research and decided to take a chance and see where it goes. That is how this blog came about. The really cool thing is I get to combine all that I love in one place! Hopefully I will inspire some people along the way.
So, if you feel a nudge from the Universe, go with it! Listen to your gut and have faith that what you want has already manifested. If you have a good feeling about taking a step toward something, follow that guidance. You never know where you might end up.
