What The Secret didn’t share is that activating the Law of Attraction requires more than inherent desire, an active imagination, and creating a vision board. Positive affirmations don’t work as a standalone. Meaning, a person who is broke isn’t going to manifest his or her rent by sitting around thinking positive thoughts alone. A person who is struggling with a health challenge may not overcome that challenge through positive thoughts by itself.
Don't be stagnant. Your ideal partner isn't going to come any faster if you're just sitting around, waiting for them to show up. In fact, Rachel Christie, Law of Attraction Life Coach and Reiki Master, tells Bustle. "When we are vibrating in a space of needing someone or something, this lack energy actually pushes away what we desire." But if you want the universe to be on your side, it's all about trust and allowing it to work its magic.
Ever notice how travel magazines show a beautiful destination, maybe a white sand beach and azure blue sky? And, there is always a table and empty chair. Your mind is attracted to the empty chair. It wants you to be there. Goals are the same. The law of attraction is energised by the gap between here and there. So long as it is bridgeable (see tip 21).
Everything in life is comprised of energy; your thoughts are what begins it and your emotions are what amplifies those thoughts. If you believe that your dreams can become your reality, you are halfway there. Take a moment and imagine that you already had what it is that you desire. Create a new identity. How would you feel? How would you move throughout your day? Live your dreams as if they already are your current reality.
Clearly, this person doesn’t really believe the Universe is going to take care of them, or they wouldn’t be making a desperate plea, bargaining, and putting a timeframe on when they want their demands met. Its comes back to the scarcity mindset, in the idea that if I don’t have a date by So & So’s wedding, then there just isn’t someone out there for me! Whether that’s what someone intended to say or not, it doesn’t really matter because it’s the energy behind the words.
I am an energy person. I believe in attracting what you’re putting out into the Universe. It’s crucial to stay at a high vibration if you want to manifest your dreams. Limit negative self talk, or negative conversations and people around you. Pay attention to when jealousy or comparison gets you down, and switch out those tasks for things that give you confidence and inspiration. A daily mindfulness practice is essential. It’s also why I recommend starting with something like A Course In Miracles or May Cause Miracles (the “millennial” version of ACIM), to get you in the habit of a daily practice. Really there are tons of apps out their for meditation and inspiration today, that there’s no excuse to not take a mindful moment every day.
You’ve probably heard all about positive thinking and visualization to manifest our desires. But it’s a little more intricate than just visualizing what you want, and perhaps that is why sometimes you feel frustrated when you hear people say that you create your reality or you can manifest this or that when you are unable to manifest in the ways, you prefer.
Create A Manifestation List
Although not concrete evidence that thoughts are capable of manifesting desires or even being capable of travel in waves through space and time, the messages within literally all religious literature still give plenty of food for thought. Even buddhism constantly stresses the importance of right thinking due to the fact that thoughts create reality as you can see by these 2 quotes:
The Law Of Attraction Manifestation
Before you begin the manifestation process you must take the necessary time to release all your disbelief in your power to be happy. One of the best ways to clear the blocks of disbelief is to pray for release. Begin a daily prayer practice of asking the Universe to set you free from all the limiting beliefs that block you from believing in your greatness. Stay open for signs from the Universe and show up for the assignments that are brought to you. Universal assignments come in many forms. Maybe you’re guided to the relationship that brings up all your shit so that you have to finally heal your fear. Or maybe you lose your job so that you can learn the lessons of self-reliance and strengthen your self-love. Trust that these assignments, however tough at times, are incredible opportunities for you to clean your energy and clear space to call in what you desire.
Look. Yes, you should have a vision of what you want your life to look like. I have a very clear vision. But it’s not hanging over my head. It’s in my pocket. Actually, it’s in my phone. And it changes as I change. They are a list of wants and goals but not needs. They do not define me or my worth. My vision acts as a compass. Do I want these things? Fuck yes I want these things. Will I not allow myself to be happy if I don’t obtain them? Nope. Been there, done that. Never again.
