After researching, I have discovered the reason why the law of attraction works for some people and not for others. There are 2 key things you need to do along with the law of attraction in order for things to manifest. I was on the right track when I started this blog, but with big holes of missing information. Well, its time to fill in the holes, and as I said before, the more I learn about how this works, and what we need to be doing, I will share it here in hopes that you, the readers will also be able to learn about these laws, and how to put yourself in harmony with them, thus receiving what you want and having the life you desire.
The movie the secret left out some important key things you need to know. Simply thinking positive, asking for what you want, wishing for it and focusing on it is just not enough. This is probably why most people say it doesn’t work for them. If all you have been doing in thinking of what you want, and are waiting for it to manifest… well, I am sorry to say, you are going to be waiting an awfully long time. Your thoughts ARE a very important part of it, but it doesn’t stop at your thoughts, which I will get into in a minute. I want to talk a little bit about the thought part some more, as it is part of the first missing piece.
When you change your thought process to what you want, your brain is going to try and find the answers. Its like a machine, and when you keep asking it and focusing on what you want, it WILL find the answer for you. Your mind is a tool, and it will create what you focus on. For example, if you want more money, think about it and ask yourself “How can I get more money” Your mind will start trying to find a way to get it, and the laws will help you, it will provide you with resources and opportunity that you may have not noticed before. You will start thinking about having more money, you may start looking at what jobs or avenues that could get you more money, you will start to notice things, and the ideas just start flowing. eg, if you were driving down the street and thought “I’m hungry, where can I get some food” you will probably notice every restaurant on that street, however, had you not put your focus on “wanting food” you likely would not have noticed any restaurants. This why it is key to train your mind to only think of what you want, and what you want will present itself in the way of opportunity, and this is where the next step comes in.
YOU MUST TAKE ACTION. You must take the action you are guided towards. I did this when I started without even realizing that it was part of it. You can’t just sit at home wishing and thinking positive for things and expect them to manifest. Taking action can be as simple as starting to research about what you want. If your looking for love, get out, go for a walk, interact with people. If you want to make 100K a year, start asking yourself, what kind of jobs make 100k a year, google it, start reading, and the way the law works is you will find your way of making it happen. It will present itself to you while you are taking action. Don’t doubt it, keep believing and just do it. Now that I know what I know, and look back at the last 4 weeks, this is exactly what happened to me. I put the thoughts out there, and had my eyes open, and when ideas presented themselves to me, I took action. With only thinking of what I want, and keep thinking ONLY positive things about getting what I want, I am manifesting more then I even realised before. For example, with my new avenue with Google, they say it takes 4-6 weeks to receive your PIN number in the mail after you qualify, I received mine last week, about 10 days after I applied for it. I know that it came to me quickly because I am thinking the right thoughts, and I am taking action. Myself as a magnet is becoming stronger, thus bringing me more of what I want.
Which brings us to the third thing you need to do. You have heard many greats state that” the universe is always in balance” and this is true. You MUST give back something of value to the universe in order to receive what you ask for. What can you give back you ask, well the list is endless. you can start with things as little as picking up garbage you see outside. In fact, this afternoon, my son and I are going to bring a garbage bag to the park across the street later and clean it up. Help people, just for the sake of helping them. Do you know a family that is struggling more then you? Why not go to the grocery store and buy some groceries for them, drop them off and feel good knowing that they will eat well this week. Do you have knowledge of a particular topic? Write about it, allowing others to learn. Once you start giving back, you will receive, every time. That’s just how the laws work. If you “pay” or give allot, you will build up interest with the universe, and I promise, you will get back what you give.
Time. What are you doing with your time. I heard something the other day, and its really made me think differently about time management. We are either wasting time, exchanging time, or investing time. Invest your time properly, and the universe will give you what you ask for. Think about that as you live your life the next few weeks. When you are doing something, ask yourself “am I wasting time, or investing time?” If you are wasting your time, change it. When I look back at my life, I wasted a lot of time, but now, I am investing my time as much as I can. Exchanging time is receiving an amount for the time you put in, like a paid by the hour type job. Focus on what you are doing with your spare time. Don’t waste it, invest it, and while you are investing it, be sure to be thinking about what you want. Don’t waste another minute. And just to be clear, learning something new is definitely investing your time.
I will continue more as I learn more, but I have to tell you, since starting this almost a month ago now, I feel like a totally different person. I feel so much stronger, my creativity is alive, I feel happy when I wake up in the morning instead of “ahh, I want to sleep more” My courage is growing, my fear and doubt is decreasing, and I am thankful. My hope is to help as many people I can to learn these amazing laws, and to realise the potential that they have. Everyone has so much potential, and so much to offer, even if you think you don’t, I am telling you, YOU DO! Its inside you, and once you start thinking of what you want, you are going to amaze yourself when you realise your own potential. You can DO or BE ANYTHING you want to be, no matter how far off you think it is, its not. Believe in yourself, think about what you want, think about how you can get what you want, keep focusing on it, and the answers will just come to you, and the tools you need to get there will fall in your lap. Say thank you and USE them, take action, give back, and change your life!
