An example of a Law of Attraction affirmation that can be adjusted to suit you would be: “I am attracting a better, happier life every day, and I trust the Universe to give me what I need.” To make it even more powerful is to channel your mind on specific elements of the affirmation. For example “I AM attracting a BETTER, happier life every day, and I TRUST the Universe to GIVE ME what I need.”
Replace your worries with thoughts about how things could go right. Worrying can make you manifest what you're trying to avoid. When worries happen, challenge them by questioning how likely they are to happen. Then, think about what has happened in the past when you worried. Next, consider how bad the worst case scenario would be if your worried thoughts actually happened. You'll likely realize it's not that big of a deal in the long-run.
Determine the desire you would like to see made manifest. For an example, let’s say you desire to lose weight. It’s very important to begin with the beliefs you currently hold. Beliefs can and do shift as our thoughts change and shift, but we must allow some time for this occur. Start where you currently are. Write as positive a statement as possible while still adhering to something you can believe. A statement such as “I am becoming super slender as I sleep” will have no ability to attract or manifest your desire if you do not believe it. Perhaps a statement such as “I know my body is capable of becoming more slender” would be more believable and will still likely illicit a response of positive emotion. What you are looking for as you write your basic affirmation is a feeling of resonance or positive emotion when you read it. You want something that give you an inner “Yes! I know this is true and I know I can do this” feeling. Think of an affirmation as a ‘cheerleader’ of sorts, spurring you on and uplifting you to feel positive about the attainment of you goal. Keep in mind that once you reach a place where the full attainment of your desire feels easy, believable and probable, you are right on the cusp of its manifestation. Affirmations are stepping stones to take us to that place.
The first article about this was in Psychology Today - “Throw Away Your Vision Board.” After a quarter million hits and much hate mail, I wanted to make sure that I had a thorough LOA understanding so I read every book from the originators of the law in the late 1800s and became a certified “Advanced Practitioner of the Law of Attraction” by one of the authors of "The Secret." I then wrote “Throw Away Your Vision Board 2.” This time the feedback was a little more positive. I recently published the book, Throw Away Your Vision Board: The Truth About the Law of Attraction. This article will summarize 14 reasons why there is no LOA.
As we grow up we make mistakes, we accumulate a lot of guilty and we feel we don’t deserve love, success, money etc. Be aware of your mental conditioning, you will realise the patterns that are pulling you down. Drink the nectar of awareness that comes through meditation practices, and the joy will know no bounds. Your fears cease, confidence rises, your state of mind and intentions are of high quality and so are your actions.
Thanks for your comments. Since you obviously have advanced knowledge on how to use a law of attraction, I assume that you have achieved all of your goals and fulfilled all of your dreams. Now you are a very rich millionaire trying to help the rest of us. Actually, you wouldn't be doing that because as LOA founder Wallace Wattles said "do not talk about poverty...do not spend your time in charitable work,...all charity only tends to perpetuate the wretchedness it aims to eradicate."
Whatever you want already exists in your imagination, doesn’t it? Therefore it is just as real as any other idea you have ever had that came to fruition. Play with the belief that what you want is already waiting for you. You’ve placed the order, now you’re on your way to pick it up. What have you got to lose? After all, you don’t “need” what you desire, it’s just for fun.
I was thinking the same. I've never heard a "professional" man of his age, speaking like such a catty little 15 year old girl. If you read all the comments you can see how he speaks down to/mocks every person who disagrees with him, while sarcastically throwing little digs in wherever he can. I came to this article looking for evidence to discredit the LOA. I just can't seem to take anything he wrote seriously because of his unprofessionalism. Very narrsassitic.
Is there Heaven on earth? If you can fill your day with thoughts and images that raise pleasurable emotions; your relationships, daily interactions, environment, and life will improve. Wouldn’t you rather face positive and pleasant experiences than to focus and dwell in negativity? What have you to lose, except the bitterness within yourself and the world?!
The law of attraction suggests that you can attract positive or negative things into your life through your thoughts and actions. It relies on the theory that everything is made up of energy, so the type of energy you put out will come back to you. If you’re ready to use the law of attraction to tell the universe what you want, start by creating a positive mindset. Then, take action toward your goals and confront your setbacks with a good attitude.
The law of attraction is not a magic wand. Because the brain preferentially scans and stores negative experiences, we have to consciously, habitually build the positive mental muscle. We all have layers and layers of stories, limiting beliefs, fears and blocks that have become the interior landscape of our minds and cannot be changed overnight just by thinking positive thoughts.
Step 1 is important because it prepares your mind and body to receive whatever you’re asking for. Our brains don’t know the difference between reality and imagination. When you engage in full, sensory imagination, your brain fires up your body to move forward. Muscles, blood flow, heart, lungs and every part of your body gear up to take part in whatever you’re imagining.
Manifestation's origins are in religion and spirituality because if something spiritual becomes real, it is said to be a manifestation. The word's usage has spread to include all aspects of life. "The submarine is a manifestation of da Vinci's sketches." "The crowd's cheering hysteria was the manifestation of years of allegiance to the now victorious soccer league."
