The best time to start is NOW
The Law of Attraction is not anything new, but it came back into vogue relatively recently after the release of the book, The Secret. If you’re just learning about the Law of Attraction and wondering where to start, or if you’re not seeing results and want to start over, I’d like to share a few tips on what I believe to be the best ways to get started:
1) Choose more positive thoughts.
Negative thinking is often a bad habit more than anything… and one that has the power to control your life in less than ideal ways! Before you can change your outer circumstances, you need to learn how to choose better thoughts. Take a moment right now and consider the general direction of your thoughts overall. Do you consistently focus on negative aspects of your day? Are you stressed much of the time? Do you live in a constant state of anxiety and frustration?
Make a conscious choice to change your thinking habits. You won’t be able to change it overnight, but you can gradually adopt a more positive thought habit. When you’re about to do something challenging, say aloud, “I am capable and complete this task easily!” Or when you’re waiting on some news, affirm over and over that it will work out in your favor. It will take effort on your part to CHOOSE more positive expectations, and you probably won’t believe the things you’re saying – not at first. But if you keep at it daily, little by little you’ll notice optimism becoming your new habit.
2) Feel positive emotions as often as possible!
Emotion is absolutely one of the most powerful weapons you have in your arsenal against struggle and lack because EMOTION IS ENERGY! Whatever emotions you are feeling at a given moment is exactly the quality of energy you are emitting to the universe. Feeling negative emotions transmits a negative signal. Feeling positive emotions transmits a positive signal. Those signals are what attract your experiences!
To improve the quality of your signal, try doing what I call “energy sessions” each day. Find a quiet place to sit or lie down, and bring to mind something that you want. Imagine that you already have it and let your emotions rise higher and higher and higher! Feel WONDERFUL about this thing you have, and let feelings of joy, happiness, gratitude and contentment flow through your body. Get the feelings as strong as you possibly can, until you feel the joy! Believe it or not, just a few minutes of this activity daily can bring about positive changes so quickly it will take your breath away.
3) BE what you’re trying to attract.
Finally, here is one more powerful technique that can create changes FAST. And that is to practice being the person who already has what you want to attract. For example: Imagine that you’re trying to attract more money into your life. You’re experiencing financial difficulties and find yourself focusing on lack a lot, which only attracts more money problems.
In order to turn this around, begin thinking, feeling and acting like a person who has no money problems. How would such a person feel? How would such a person behave day to day? Most likely, that person would be calm, happy, grateful, centered and content. They’d pay their bills calmly and they wouldn’t worry about money, ever! They would FEEL abundant and blessed. If you begin thinking, feeling and acting that way too, guess what happens? You communicate to the universe that you are abundant and blessed – and the universe says, “Okay!”
The truth is, the Law of Attraction is incredibly EASY to use once you know how! It’s just a matter of realizing that your thoughts, feelings and actions are not just reactive but creative . And then choosing to think, feel and act a little differently each day.
A period of adjustment is absolutely necessary – just like adopting ANY new habit! Don’t expect yourself to get it perfect right away. Simply work at improving your thoughts, emotions and expectations a little at a time, moment by moment. You may think that small changes won’t create big results, but I assure you they can!
One day–before you know it–you’ll look back and be amazed at how you were able to change your life simply by adopting more positive thought habits. I personally would add prayer to the mix, but that’s me 🙂
