Andy Bailey, an Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) member in Nashville, is an author, CEO and head coach of business coaching firm Petra Coach who serves in an advisory role on the Gazelles Council, leaders of the Scale Up movement. We asked Andy how the law of attraction can impact business owners and their trajectory toward success. Here's what he shared:
Energy orbiting is the key that helps one change the negative traumas, thoughts, and beliefs in the subconscious mind and conscious mind into positive ones. These are the negative aspects which are to blame for the chain of unfortunate events taking place in your life. Effective energy orbiting is done by reaching deep within yourself into your “Transformation zones”. Here you should control your mind so that it shifts from the Beta state characterized by wakefulness and activity into Theta state characterized by calmness and deep meditation or deep sleep.
Remember to keep it simple for strength and repeat with fervor to create the habit of the idea in the subconscious mind. Eventually it will make its way to the conscious mind and then into the superconsciousness, where it can be made manifest in outer form. Watch out for sabotaging thoughts that linger in the subconscious. This is the playground of fear, worry and doubt. Keep a spotlight shining and eradicate them when they arise, replacing them immediately with an even firmer proclamation of your affirmation.
He goes by the name of Alexander Wilson. Like many out there, Alexander has had his own fair share of ups and downs. He managed to live a double life where to the outside world, he lived a picture-perfect life but in reality, he drove an old, dilapidated car, lived in a house that was literally falling apart, lost his job, and was involved in a car accident. A string of unfortunate events that should have seen him give up on life. But it is these series of “disasters” as he calls them that led him to discover himself and his path.
Most of the times, we think we know exactly what we need to be happy, what we need to get rid of, what needs to happen and what shouldn’t happen. Sometimes we are right and sometimes we are wrong. You can look into your past or study any person’s past and realise that the big jumps in maturity, life satisfaction, gratitude etc. happen when things go drastically wrong and we realise there is more to life than the surface appearances and start enjoying life at a different level. This reminds me of a Dalai Lama’s quote, “Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck”. So answering the second question. No, you won’t always get what you want.
You may not remember my husband and me from our visit this past May, but afterward I came away with such an uplifted feeling of hope and happiness that I am compelled to write to you and tell you thank-you. You were able to give my husband and myself the chance to talk with our son in spirit and in a manor of speaking – able to say goodbye, let go of the great sadness and to know that our son is in the rapture of angels.
Use positive self-talk to motivate yourself to take action. It’s normal to have negative thoughts about yourself, but this can hold you back. When you catch yourself thinking negatively, question that thought and replace it with a positive thought. Additionally, repeat your favorite positive mantra to yourself throughout the day to keep yourself on track.
I know our universe is there to guide us through the thick and thins of our lives. Just one year ago 2017 I was petrified at being diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2016 I tried my best to fly to London,to see my family and friends. I would get the the airport and to no avail there were hurricanes that caused flight delays and cancellations, It all seemed that I was never meant to fly in 2016.
Of course hard work is great, but only if you are passionate, inspired and moving through your day-to-day tasks with a sense of excitement and expectation for positive results. If you are working hard but you feel miserable, resentful and cannot help but notice you are still broke the whole time. Well you’re not ever going to move into a rich mindset that promotes the flow of money. You have to move away from that habit that keeps you justifying why you don’t have the income you want, and think beyond it.
You have probably made tons of these in your life: when you wake up in the morning, feeling good about yourself and the world around you, and you say: “Oh, it’s gonna be a wonderful day!” and it turns out to really be a wonderful day, because you’re feeling good, and everything around you looks pretty, you even influence others to help you having your wonderful day, because you’re smiling and you’re being positive. It’s the law of attraction in action – your positive thoughts about the looks and feels of that day have attracted other positive things and people to your life that day.
Your actions in this world have more consequences than we can completely comprehend. What a person generally desires is a thing or a monetary result. This selfish touch may unconsciously lower our energy level. For example, say you want to buy a new house. If you only focus how other people may think about you when you own a new house, how to show off, etc. then it is less likely for the energy to flow and for the house becoming a reality. Instead see the bigger picture and truly feel what the new house can do to the world and you. The number of people who will get employment from constructing the building, the way you are your family will enjoy the new house, imaging the amazing feeling to be in the house, having a good time with friends, neighbours etc.
Captain Ahab, said the reddening mate, moving further into the cabin, with a daring so strangely respectful and cautious that it almost seemed not only every way seeking to avoid the slightest outward manifestation of itself, but within also seemed more than half distrustful of itself; A better man than I might well pass over in thee what he would quickly enough resent in a younger man; aye
“As a psychologist I am all too aware that the principals of the Laws of Attraction are badly explained everywhere. “Manifestation Magic” does what it says on the tin, it explains simply, easily and more importantly correctly how to get everything that you desire in life. Rich people do not think like other people, they know that they cannot fail. Most people find that reconciling your conscious mind with your subconscious mind is really difficult, and yet unless you master that basic skill you are doomed to be caught up in an endless loop of repeating past mistakes. Most people assume that it is the subconscious mind that gets in the way of their success and that is why you are doomed to fail, because it is your conscious mind that puts the damper on your hopes and dreams. However you have to successfully free yourself from your excuses and your self-limiting decisions and this eBook tells you exactly how to do it. It is simply the best read I have had in ages and I read every day”.
I do not claim to have all of those things either. However, I do have most of the things that I described and I managed to attain them through my value-based goals, plans, process-visualizations, and inspired action. I didn't ask the universe for it, you might say that the universe knew, but I was driven to get these things. I didn't act or pretend like I already had them.
The Law of Attraction is among the most popular of the Universal Laws. Advocates of this mind-power paradigm generally combine cognitive reframing techniques with affirmations and creative visualization to replace limiting or self-destructive ("negative") thoughts with more empowered, adaptive ("positive") thoughts. A key component of the philosophy is that in order to effectively change one's negative thinking patterns, one must also "feel" (through creative visualization) that the desired changes have already occurred. This combination of positive thought and positive emotion is believed to allow one to attract positive experiences and opportunities by achieving resonance with the proposed energetic law.
Michale does an incredible job of explaining LOA and sharing how to use it in your own life without all the mumble-jumble. Straight forward, easy to understand, and apply makes it a great book to read and read and read. I also listen to his podcasts and following him on youtube. He practices what he preaches and encourages everyone to be success in manifesting their dreams.
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.
