We are talking a lot on this site about the power of our subconscious (see the article about how positive affirmations work): the more you repeat an affirmation, the more you believe it’s true. Now, affirmations – they’re only sentences. “This is red” and “this isn’t red” – these are both affirmations, just like “I am pretty” and “I’m not very pretty”. The difference – the first one, positive one, makes you feel good about yourself, and the other – not so much.

Step 4. Turn to the mirror. Look into your own eyes. Repeat the statement of desire as if it has already happened, “I am a . I work at . I earn $XXX.XX per year. I love my work. I appreciate my boss. My coworkers are the best. Repeat it two or three times – whatever feels right to you. It doesn’t matter if you use different words as long as the feeling is the same. Embellish the words, make them your own.
Give yourself time to learn how to stay positive because it can be hard. At first, it will be hard for you to keep your thoughts positive. It's natural for negative thoughts to come back to you. However, you can help yourself focus on the positive by intentionally confronting negative thoughts. Acknowledge them, dismiss them, then replace them with something positive. With practice, you can become more positive over time.[8]
For some people, it seems like the stars repeatedly align, as if they wrote their own destiny. Despite challenges or hiccups, these people come out of even the toughest situations unfazed, blessed in one way or another by what seems like a miracle. How do they do it? And what if you learned there was a secret to cultivating the life you want? It sounds pretty crazy, but the Law of Attraction is something that many people believe in. So what's the deal with all of it, anyway?

Over the last few years we have been bombarded with information about how to manifest money or how to make a wish come true merely by thinking about it. And some of those ideas work – some of the time. We briefly covered five techniques in a previous article, “How to Attract Money”. Today we’re going to combine those techniques, and more, in a powerful manifestation technique that you can carry out once a day, and which will produce tangible results if you are open to receiving them.

"It may not be exactly as you imagine it – say you make $35,000 as a writer and you imagine making $100,000. You may get an offer in a different field that meets the money requirement or possibly a different style of writing than you might be used to or an assignment that you did not expect. Point is, you will get what you ask for, even if it is not exactly as you had imagined. Now if you have no job and no income and ask for a Maserati, you probably won’t get it. You might, however, meet a new friend who has one and get to drive it," Estes states clearly.

"Marcella has obtained more positive results in my life for me than all other methods I have ever tried. I credit her with getting me out of depression and over overwhelm. Her intuitive and practical life experiences make her an outstanding life coach in coaching ones personal insights as well as giving one insight into the opposite sex and how we can better work together for a happier life.


Even with our restaurant order, a negative or angry thought can deliver poor service, tasteless food, or a much delayed order. The same is true with the manifesting process with the Universe. Fear, doubt, or negativity — either conscious or subconscious – will deliver to us more of the same fears, doubts and negativity. The Universe will “take our order” as sent via our thoughts.

4) No Plan: If the best way for me to achieve my goals is to live as if I’ve already achieved them, then there is no reason to make further plans to do so! Making plans shows the universe that you doubt its ability and lack faith. Doubt is negative and you will then attract more negative and not get your desired item. In the book The Secret, Jack Canfield proposed, “Our job is not to figure out the how.” “…trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it.” Studies show that this way of thinking results in greater short term satisfaction, but less motivation and lower chance of achieving goals. Curious that Jack Canfield’s website sells a program to teach you how to make an “Action Plan.”

If you read LOA websites and posts, you’d guess that it is might be over 90% effective - everybody seems to be achieving their goals this way.

Yes, I am familiar with that phrase, although not sure how it applies to this situation. I am the source and you would like me to consider myself? I do not have an employer.

Michael Losier is the best on the law of attraction issue. He teaches one exactly how to master the art of "believe". It is easy to tell people that the law of attraction works; however, the LOA works if one firmly believes in receiving something specific. Now what if one can not convince oneself to deeply believe? Michael has a whole chapter on how one can realistically think ones desire into reality.

When you read about the Law of Attraction, it can sometimes feel like it will take months or years to manifest anything you desire. However, experts advise that if you carefully work your way through four distinct manifestation steps, it’s possible to get results a lot more quickly. In fact, if you are wondering how to manifest anything in simply 24 hours, you may only need 5 steps.
