Whatever you are thinking and feeling at any given time is basically your request to the universe for more of the same. Because your energy vibrations will attract energy back to you of the same frequencies, you need to make sure that you are continually sending out energy, thoughts, and feelings that resonate with what you want to be, do, and experience.
For 40 days, I started and ended my day with a meditation using May Cause Miracles by Gabby Bernstein, I set hourly pop up reminders on my phone to refocus on what I was trying to manifest. Started a daily journal to get all the blocks and dreams out of my head and into the Universe. And guess what?? It worked! That year, I made just as much as a life coach as I did in my 9-5, and only worked a third of the amount of time! That was 2014, it’s now 2017, and each year, my business has been more and more profitable, and I’ve gotten clearer and clearer on my vision.

This was how "the law" started.
