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 mind. 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 affect 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 may by 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 mind-set" 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!
