3 Powerful Tips to Activate the Law of Attraction in Your Life
Perhaps you have heard about the “law of attraction” and “manifesting your own reality.” Manifesting refers to the ability to attract positive things towards us through the use of our intention and thoughts. The principles behind Manifesting go back thousands of years. Over time, different cultures and civilizations have uncovered these basic truths and expressed them in their own way – from ancient Hindu scriptures to modern-day particle theory.
The language may have changed, but the underlying law is universal. Everything in the world is made of particles of energy, vibrating at different frequencies. When we send out positive thoughts of gratitude and abundance, we attract positive energy into our lives (and vice versa). It’s the same principle behind bestselling books like The Celestine Prophecy and films like The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know?!.
We all use manifestation in our lives, whether we realize it or not. Most of the time, we do it unconsciously. We might fall into a negative spiral, and everything seems to go wrong at once. Or we have one success which leads to another and another. The basic principle of the law of attraction is that “like attracts like.” Often, we do this unconsciously. But once you master it, you can consciously create the reality you want.
Manifesting our reality is about learning to use the hidden power of our minds. Tapping into this power is easier than you might think and can be activated by three powerful forces.
Most people, when asked what they want from their life, respond in general terms, such as: “I just want to be happy”. But, it is important to define what your idea of happiness is.
By taking the time to define and describe exactly what you would like in the different areas of your life, you will fill your mind with those thoughts and images and be more likely to attract the right people, places, and resources to make those thoughts a reality.
“Clarity of mind means clarity of passion, too; this is why a great and clear mind loves ardently and sees distinctly what it loves.”
Take a moment to define and clarify at least one goal for yourself for the next year. Have fun with this and describe your goal in as much detail as possible. Activate all your five senses to determine what you will see, feel, hear and experience when this goal is your reality. The emotional vibrational state generated from this experience will create a strong magnetizing effect for your goal.
- The Written Word
Research recently conducted by Professor Dr. Gail Matthews at the Dominican University of California shows that people who wrote down their goals were on average 33% more successful in accomplishing their stated goals than those who merely formulated goals. Personally, I have pleasantly shocked myself on countless occasions when I found old notebooks containing my presently accomplished goals written down in them. It almost seems that the written word maybe your own personal toll-free order-line to the quantum field of possibilities.
Try it for yourself. Why not take five minutes to write down your most inspiring goal in clear and detailed terms and boost your manifesting power by 33%!
The fastest way to attain an “abundance mindset” and align your emotional vibration with the flow of prosperity and joy, is to adopt an attitude of gratitude. Start the simple practice of writing down five people, things or situations that you are grateful for every night before you go to bed. Gratitude will positively shift your energy instantly and clear out any negativity that has accumulated during the day.
I hope you give these tips a test drive and I look forward to hearing from you and seeing success stories!
The Flow of the Universe: Move From Scarcity to Abundance
Our goal of living an abundant and happy life with all our creative and financial needs met is why we work so hard every day. When working harder and longer hours isn’t being reflected back to us in our bank balance, we need to look at our mindset about money.
Abundance, or lack thereof, is connected to feelings inside of us. These feelings come from our past experiences and our societal cues. According to Eckhart Tolle, “a person’s thinking and beliefs are conditioned by their past: their upbringing and culture they live in.”
Negative experiences as a child can create a scarcity mindset. If we overheard our parents fighting over money, we may relate acquiring affluence with instability and fear. A chaotic family life where there was never enough money but plenty of drama around the subject can create deep patterns of resistance such as: blaming others for lack, overspending to fill a void, or hanging on too tight for fear of running out of it.
We live in a world where the messages of scarcity are all around us.
We must buy everything on sale, not overspend and think there is never enough. We are victims of a scarcity consciousness that effect our actions and perceptions.
There are many who are unable to free themselves from the burden of guilt they feel from ignoring the class structure that confined their parents. Making over a certain amount can actually cause shame and feelings of unworthiness, so success is often sabotaged without being conscious of what is really happening at a deeper level. These mindsets can hold our earning potential hostage. If we have a failure mindset, we are fighting the natural flow of the universe, always swimming upstream and wondering why we don’t seem to be getting anywhere. We need a whole new perspective on wealth.
