Have you been trying to use the Law of Attraction with little or no success?
Do you think it’s a load of new-age bullish and just another money making gimmick for people who are already super-rich?
Maybe you’ve been playing with the LoA and you’ve seen some results here and there but you feel that there’s something you’re not quite ‘getting’ — like there’s more to it than what you’ve been told by all of the best known gurus on the subject.
If this sounds like you, then you probably have also heard that the Law of Attraction means ‘you get whatever you think about’ — If so, that’s your problem. That’s the reason the Law of Attraction isn’t working for you — it doesn’t work that way.
It’s actually a lot simpler than that.
The Law of Attraction is about how you feel
The Law of Attraction is about how you feel, not what you think about. I’m sure it’s the lack of this realization that’s sabotaging your best intention manifestation efforts, just like it was mine.
Almost everyone who talks about the Law of Attraction makes it seem like ‘you get whatever you think about’, but this is simply not true. The people who make those claims are wrong. If you’ve been told that the LoA is about what you think then you’re probably not getting the results you’re hoping for. The Law of Attraction does not give you what you think about, it gives you what you feel like. Let me explain by answering one of the most common questions regarding the Law of Attraction…
A lot of people get confused when first learning about the Law of Attraction and intention manifestation (that’s what I prefer to call it), they ask
“Well what about all the bad things? Why is there murder and rape and all this bad stuff that happens? People don’t think about murder and rape all the time so if the Law of Attraction is true then why does it happen?”
The answer is because the Law of Attraction is not only attracting what you think about, it also attracts things that make you feel a similar way. It’s true that the LoA brings you what you think about, but more often it brings you things based on how you feel. So when you start thinking about the things you really want you will usually start to feel really good. And when you feel really good you attract more things that make you feel really good, so it’s likely that you’ll end up manifesting whatever it is that you’re thinking about that makes you feel so good — as long as you think and feel that way most of the time.
When somebody gets hurt at work or gets into a car accident or some other ‘bad’ thing happens to them it’s important to think about how that event made them feel. When you get hurt at work, what do you feel like? Maybe it’s angry, or annoyed, or frustrated, or maybe it’s just pain. How much of your time in the previous month or two had you spent feeling angry, annoyed, frustrated, or in pain?
Now you’re starting to realize where you’ve been going wrong, aren’t you?
If you spend all day thinking about things that make you feel really grateful then you’re going to bring in more things to be grateful for. Being grateful is a great way to feel, there’s not really anything that makes you feel grateful that is ‘bad’. The same goes for if you feel wealthy, healthy, or even stylish. If you feel like you have really great style you’ll start attracting more things that make you feel like you’re really stylish. Perhaps your dreams of becoming a professional model or actor will come to fruition, wouldn’t that make you feel like you had style? Of course it would!
The same goes for feeling thankful. If you feel really thankful for the things you appreciate in your life you will automatically start attracting more things to be thankful for — this is a really great position to be in. When you’re constantly receiving things that you’re really thankful for it’s going to be a lot harder for you to get down and be unhappy. Life will soon be overflowing with abundance and you’ll start really enjoying your experience more than ever before.
The Law of Attraction can defeat itself… be careful
When you first start out with the Law of Attraction and Intention Manifestation most people have doubts. This is natural. Our entire lives we’ve been conditioned to believe that this sort of thing is all a big hoax, we’re programmed to be skeptical of things like the Law of Attraction. It hasn’t always been like this, and one day it will change, but for now it’s best to start small with your intentions.
You must start with intentions that you know are achievable and work your way up. Any doubts you have will stop your progress dead. If you’re feeling doubt, what are you going to attract? Of course you will attract things that make you feel more doubtful about the Law of Attraction — your intentions won’t manifest because you are intending one thing but feeling another!
Start using the LoA to manifest things you know you can manifest and work your way up from there. This will help you build confidence in your ability to manifest anything you want. Start with a dollar or a free lunch or something like that. Something that you could easily explain away as a mere coincidence (there is no such thing). From there you can work up to bigger and better things. It won’t take long before you’re manifesting your wildest dreams, but you can’t just jump into manifesting millions of dollars, nice cars, and huge houses. If you start trying to manifest a million dollars you’re probably going to start wondering how it could even be possible, ‘where will I get a million dollars from?’ . What is worrying? Worrying leads to doubt, and doubt attracts experiences to reinforce your doubtfulness. You’ll doubt the ability to manifest a million dollars and you won’t be able to make it happen, the Law of Attraction will have defeated itself… Sort of.
Feelings are stronger than thoughts when it comes to the LoA — that’s the secret behind the secret. Most of the best known Law of Attraction gurus keep that information to themselves, they don’t tell you that feelings are stronger magnets than thoughts. Many of them may not even know, they might truly believe that ‘you get what you think about’ because when they think about what they want to attract it makes them feel really great and they attract things into their lives that make them feel the same way… Usually what they manifest will be what they were thinking about that made them feel that way — that’s why so many people think that you ‘get what you think about’ when you really attract more of the same feelings.
Feel Good Now!
If you want to reap the fruits of the Law of Attraction seeds you’ve sown, you must always focus on feeling good. Do you feel good right now? If not, you’re doing something wrong. You’re asking the universe to give you more people, events, and circumstances that make you feel the way you feel right now.
Are you tired, stressed, frustrated, or downright depressed? If you are, then you’ve got to change the way you feel right now, or you will keep feeling that way forever. The present moment is all that exists, the future and the past are just collections of thoughts that don’t actually exist anywhere but inside your own mind. You can only change the way you feel right now, not tomorrow, not in some distant point in the future when you are rich and have your dream career and the greatest relationship — you have to start feeling good now before any of that is possible.
A quick way to feel better
There are plenty of ways to start feeling better in this very moment, let me offer a few quick suggestions that will help clear your mind and focus on things that make you feel good.
First I want you to do the following procedure and repeat it at least 8 times. It will only take a few minutes and it will help take you to a much more peaceful state of mind.
- Inhale through your nose for 8 seconds
- Hold for 8 seconds
- Exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds
- Hold pause for 8 seconds
- Repeat steps one through four 8 times
This quick exercise will leave you feeling refreshed and much better than when you started. Allow your mind to go completely blank when you’re doing this and simply focus on your breath. Aim for long steady breaths and breathe as deeply as you can. Try to fill your body with air from the bottom up, start filling the bottom of your stomach first and end with the top of your lungs. Do the same except reversed on the exhale. This is a simple meditation and breathing exercise that rejuvenates the whole body in just a few quick minutes.
Once you have repeated the process 8 times you should continue to breathe in a controlled manner and begin to think about things that make you happy. Think about when you feel the best. What are you doing when you feel this way? Where would you be? What would it feel like? What sounds would you hear and what sights would you see? Who’s there with you? Hold on to that feeling and really try to be there in that moment. Forget about everything else and just focus on whatever makes you feel good. This is a sure fire way to rejuvenate both your body and mind and to focus your attention on something that will help you to feel good right now in this very moment.
After you’ve focused on what makes you feel good and you actually begin to truly feel that way, then start visualizing your intentions in the same way you were visualizing what makes you feel good. Actually feel your intention as if it’s already real. Feel what it would be like, smell the smells, hear the sounds, and taste the flavors of your desires. Focus on the feelings that you get from your intentions and not the intentions themselves.
It’s not the fancy car, big bank account, nice house, and perfect spouse that makes you happy, it’s being happy that brings all of those things to you.
You’re now on your way to living your dreams, whatever they may be.
