Hey Fren:) Discovering law-of-attraction teachings can feel like both a blessing and a curse. It did for me anyways. There were times where I wished I had never came across the law-of-attraction. Why? Because it ignited dreams I had long given up on. Being told that you can have anything you desire can create both excitement and hope yet also fear and frustration if what you want is slow in coming.
After watching the famous law of attraction movie, The Secret, I made a career out of trying to understand and master the teachings and, for many years, I fell into an abyss-like rabbit hole. I was very much into Jerry & Esther Hicks’s Teaching of Abraham listening to YouTube clips for hours at a time. It was an exhausting time.
If you are on a law of attraction path, my advice is to keep a level head. I have a friend who hasn’t worked in years. His days are spent listening to Abraham and ‘doing the energy work.’ He is still waiting for his millions. Maybe they’ll come? In the meantime, my advice is don’t let life slip you by.
7 Practical Law-Of-Attraction Tips For Smart Peeps:
My top 7 law-of-attraction tips. Let’s go:
#1. Take a look at your inner dialogue and your general attitude towards life. If you are constantly complaining and finding fault, you will be a magnet for the negative according to law-of-attraction teachings. Putting LOA teaching aside, using your mind to see the best in each situation, will make you a stronger and more resilient human being. It doesn’t mean you have to become ‘fake happy!!’ It means you are honest, authentic and you focus on solutions not problems.
Recap: Every day, harness awareness of how you interact with daily life. Bitching, complaining, and judging are all signs of resistant thoughts. Resistant thoughts drain your energy. Even if the circumstances of your life give you justification to complain, choose to make the best of where you are. You are where you are. With a good attitude, you won’t stay there for long.
#2.Make sure your self esteem is on point. By that, I mean you are wanting what you want for the pure thrill and experience of it, not because you need it to feel worthy or impress others.
Quick Story: Back in the day, I so desperately wanted money to fill a void to feel good about myself. I would visualise myself in a flashy car, driving down the street, admired by all. The hilarious thing is most people are not impressed by wealth because they have their own money issues. ‘Look at me in my rich car,’ I’m dreaming, when most of peeps are probably thinking, ‘Look at that, another rich clown’.
I’ll tell you this: When you feel good about yourself because of your inner values, and not because of what you do and have, you don’t feel the need to impress others. Furthermore, things just flow to you. That’s ben my experience anyway.
Want what you want for the pure thrill of it. If you are wanting money, or anything, to feel worthy or impress others, you have a red hot indicator that you may find your desire hard to manifest. Why? Because despite outward appearances, underneath, your energy is a big, vibrating pile of insecurity.
Recap: Work on being a more confident, effective human being if you notice that you are wanting something just to feel worthy. When you work on your inner landscape and hold attributes such as honesty, integrity, loyalty and authenticity in higher esteem than ‘wanting ‘stuff’ to feel worthy’, you will feel good about yourself and what you want will come more easily.
#3.Consider keeping your dreams and desires to yourself. For two reasons. 1) Often the need to tell the world about what it is you are going to manifest is laced with self doubt. 2) More often than not the other person may not respond how you want them to. Laughter, skepticism and negative judgment, spoken or implied (the ‘you’re f*ing crazy!’ face) can be what you receive (I’ve had them all.) Actually, throw in pity. Pity was probably the worst (the ‘Oh Darl, give it up, you’re deluding yourself!’ face.) This type of negative reaction will mess up your vibration and fill you with doubt.
Recap: Unless you are one hundred percent confident you can manifest your desire, and/or couldn’t care less about what anyone thinks of you anyways, then consider keeping your dreams to yourself.
#4. Spend some time each day picturing yourself with whatever it is you desire but don’t feel you need to overdo it. 5 minutes is enough, truly. The practice of visualisation can help build belief and expectation that you can have what you desire. If you find yourself forcing this practice, or there is fear or yearning present, step back. You may be too attached to the desire. That is, ‘I need this to be happy.’ The perfect position to manifest your desire is to be looking forward to its fruition without needing it.
Recap: Spending some time picturing what you desire is a practice that should be enjoyable and feels good to do. It can help build confidence in your ability to achieve your goals.
#5. Whatever it is you are doing, do it well. When you put good energy into your action, good energy is what you are radiating out into the world and law-of-attraction is responding to. Trust me, if you don’t like your job, do it well anyway, you wont stay there for long. Doing an outstanding job even if you don’t particularly enjoy the task is an attitude that will one hundred percent bring you success.
Recap: No matter where you are and what you are doing, make a vow to put good energy into it. It doesn’t mean being fake and exclaiming,‘Oh WOW! I just love this!’ when you really don’t. It means you understand that you are where you are, it is temporary and the quickest way to move to something better is to make the most of where you are now.
#6. Look after your physical body. It is the only one you have. Feed it healthy, nutritious food and keep it strong through being active. Cut back on the grog or eliminate it altogether. Get a decent amount of sleep. Meditate. Breathe. Without health, you have very little. Money, cars, houses and luxury holidays are all worthless if you’re dead or too ill to enjoy them.
Recap: Your physical body radiates your energy so it makes perfect sense to take care of it to ensure it is operating at peak condition. When you are unhappy with where you are, it can be tempting to overeat or overindulge to soothe or escape the pain. This habit (one I know all too well) can result in feeling worse.
#7. Acknowledge how blessed you are to have life. It may sound clichéd but every morning that you wake up with a pulse you are one up on the poor soul who died yesterday. In HQ over in the Middle East, there was an entire wall filled with the photos of soldiers who had been killed in action. They left home to serve their country and never returned to see their loved ones. It wasn’t lost on me the photos that weren’t there to represent the thousands of other lives lost in war. Life is so sacred, please don’t waste it being miserable. You may not have what you want or be where you want to be but you have life. Appreciate this beautiful gift every day.
Recap: Waking up every day and acknowledging the blessing of your life is such an incredibly powerful way of igniting your energy and vibration. It sets the tone for your day and you will be blown away with how many things you have to appreciate when you take the time to look. This is one of the most powerful tricks of them all. Train yourself to see abundance instead of lack.
Practice 1 or 2 Law-of-Attraction Tips to Maximise Success
For years I was unsuccessful with mastering the law-of-attraction and the biggest reason of all was because my entire self esteem AND my entire happiness was tied up in the external world. From this anxious state, I would think incessantly about my desire and I’d take non-stop action. I worked really, really hard but still didn’t attract the success I wanted so badly. Whilst I was running around thinking and doing, I was often a bundle of manic desperation. ‘Hurry UP Universe, I NEED this! PLEEEASEEEEE just let it happen!!!’
Abraham Hicks say that the world is beautiful and there is nothing broken. Sorry, I disagree. There are some awful things in this world and the last thing we need is to create even more greedy, selfish human beings focussed solely on getting what they want.
Pls don’t get me wrong! It is okay to set the intention of changing your life to something more pleasing but do this by becoming an even better human being in the process. There are too many instances of people using law-of-attraction teachings to justify bad behavior or victim shame.
Pick one or two of the above law-of-attraction tips, or some of your own, to start mastering. If you have a technique that you find useful please share it below to help others. Above all, enjoy your life as much as you can right now. Whatever you do, don’t give up. The kicker is when you are satisfied in your present moment you aren’t concerned if or when your desires come. And yet that is when it does.
