What IS the Law of Attraction?
I’ve spoken to people about the Law of Attraction who initially thought it was something to do with the physical attraction between the sexes. While it definitely can include this aspect of our lives it’s not what LOA is about. The Law of Attraction is a very straightforward concept – basically, it means that you get what you focus on. More particularly, the emotion behind what you are focused on draws more of the same to you.
What it means in day to day life
If you’re a person who is always complaining about not having enough money or never meeting a loving partner, then embracing LOA will quite definitely change your life. You say you never have enough money? That’s what you’re focusing on, and that’s what you’re getting. You say there are no decent men/women out there? You won’t meet them. If you are in a relationship and you’re focusing on what’s NOT working, well hey ho, it continues not to work.
So, what do you do to change things?
You focus on what you DO want instead of what you DON’T want.
Choose your words carefully
Change your language first. Begin to notice the words you’re using in your day-to-day life. Everybody has a bad day, and that’s fine but don’t allow yourself to wallow in it. For instance, I recently had an interview for a position I really wanted – it was exactly what I was looking for, and I felt I’d a pretty good chance of getting it. There were four interviewees, and barely a hair separated us in terms of experience and personality. One of the others got the job. I allowed myself half an hour to feel sick about it, but then I acknowledged that whoever did get the job just had the edge on the rest of us. I got back online and within a second half hour had another interview for a job I got – at a better hourly rate!
Once we have our energy vibration under control, we can then begin to manifest the life we want. Notice I don’t say the ‘things’ we want. Manifesting isn’t about getting the new car or skiing in Aspen – it’s about the feeling that having the new car will give us (some people will have that feeling by buying a 20-year-old car). It’s not about the thing, it’s ALL about the feeling.
You don’t say, for instance, I want a house by the beach. You do say I love feeling the sand between my toes at the end of a long day.
In my next post, I’m going to give you tips on how to manifest what you want and in the meantime why not try out my mini course for creating a Vision Board?
