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.
You may be perfectly healthy and yet stressful situations come up all the time… Your boss overworks you all day, your work colleagues look down on you, your marriage is not working, your kids do not respect you, you aren’t getting along with your family members, you are stuck in traffic on the one day you need to get somewhere on time, you miss a lifetime opportunity, your career is plummeting, … the list of stressful situations we encounter on a daily basis is endless.

Schedule some quiet time for some deep contemplation of what you desire to create in your life. What are your goals, hopes and wishes? Sit down with a pen and paper. Get clear, crystal clear. Define what you do want. Describe it, draw it, and define it. Define it in terms of the positive attributes. Define the attributes and characteristics of your dream. Take care not to use anything as a descriptor that is actually a statement about what your dream is not. Define what it is. Know exactly what it is you want.
"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.
You are one of a kind and you have a unique spiritual fingerprint. A unique abundance DNA. The universe just wants you to recognize and own your uniqueness. Then you can have anything you want because you’ll stop doing things the way you think you should. You’ll know without blinking that you’re the best in the world at being you. And that’s more than enough to attract an extraordinary and abundant life for you and for those you love.
It’s this time of year where we look back and evaluate our highs and our lows. We sometimes dwell on the lows and the things we didn’t accomplish. Being aware of your thoughts is an important form of self-care. Check out this post about 5 Ways To Carry Your Self-Care Habits Through The Holidays if you’re having a hard time sticking to your self-care habits. It is so important that we don’t let negative thoughts fill our minds and our subconscious.
The New Thought (Law of Attraction Origins) grew out of the teachings of Phineas Quimby in the early 19th century. Early in his life, Quimby was diagnosed with tuberculosis. However, medicinal treatment wasn't working, so he began carriage riding through his hometown, Lebanon, New Hampshire. He then regained his health and recovered, an event that prompted his study of "mind over body". Although he never used the words 'Law of Attraction', he explained this in a statement that captured the concept in the field of health:
As a mind-reader, you should try to ATTRACT a different job, since in no way do I have any anger towards anyone with erroneous beliefs. I do feel sorry for you, but this is not anger. This is a free country and free society and you are free to believe anything you desire and free to waste your time as you see fit. You can smoke cigarettes as well. They will harm you and that is your choice. Same as a belief in a LOA.
a) Electrons have positive charges. b) In physics “Like always attracts like.” [magnets?] c) Thinking burns up brain matter. d) Only ether (not air) conducts light and thought. e) Ether connects all minds together. When 2 or more minds come close together, “mind stuff” mixes, and creates a third, “master mind.” f) Higher altitudes have more oxygen, better air for breathing. g) Vibrating sound more quickly turns it into heat, then light, than thought. h) Thought energy is 40,000 Hz to 4 X 1014 Hz or above 7 x 1014 Hz. In reality brain waves are slow 1 – 100 Hz. i) The universe hears nouns, not adjectives or qualifiers or only sees pictures of your thoughts. j) Every thought you have (about 70,000/day) has a specific frequency or wavelength of energy. “Thought Stuff” leaves your brain, travels through the ether around us and causes “Formless Stuff” to create whatever you are thinking about.
You cannot be separated from that which you are calling God… People hear us say, “Reach for the thought that feels the best.” And they think, “Oh no, I need to listen to what God wants.” But aren’t we talking about the same thing? Aren’t your emotions guiding you to that Connection? And doesn’t the word God just set you off on all kinds of tangents that don’t have anything to do with your relationship with that which is this Eternal Energy of Love that is your Source?
Some of the most powerful affirmations are brought to life most significantly by understanding and using Law of Attraction methods. Law of Attraction focusses heavily on training your sub-conscious mind from limiting and often damaging beliefs that are instilled in us throughout the course of our lives. Therefore Law of Attraction affirmations specifically target the areas of your life that need improving and help you believe that you really can attract all of your dreams by improving self-perception. They also designed to ensure that you keep constant attention to your thoughts and behaviors as your day progresses. And by becoming more conscious of the way that you perceive yourself, in turn, this helps to combat the limiting beliefs that might otherwise creep in to create a negative reality.
The wife from the second example – she does it as well: her thoughts are gaining strength the more she nurtures them, making her feel even more insecure, making her become less and less desirable to her husband; and when he goes, if she doesn’t snap out of it, she could eventually become a vortex of despair, attracting more and more bad things to her life.
“Oh, it’s gonna be a wonderful day!” This sentence can hardly be said without enthusiasm, without really feeling that everything around you is great. Now, imagine waking up every morning with the intention to manifest a great day for yourself, with the strong conviction that the day will be just the way you want, and saying this sentence. With intention, not by accident; with belief, not by default.
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.
Law of attraction practiced prior to the 1800s. If you are referring to arcane practices in Babylon and Biblical times that we have little knowledge of, I am aware and have looked at these. If there are some specific and relevant references I would be interested in hearing them. As you believe in a LOA, most of what you hear will be filtered through this lens. As I now do not, most of what I hear will be seen through that lens.
The brain begins operating in the theta frequencies right before we fall asleep and just before we wake up. It is during this time when we dream and also where unconscious pathway connections are formed to process and retain information. Theta wavelengths are acknowledged as being an exceptional state for learning, intuition and clear visualization.
In 2006, the concept of the Law of Attraction gained a lot of renewed exposure with the release of the film The Secret (2006) which was then developed into a book of the same title in 2007. The movie and book gained widespread media coverage. Rhonda Byrne's book also has influenced the creation of an untitled fiction film based on The Secret, starring Katie Holmes. This was followed by a sequel, The Power in 2010 that talks about the law of attraction being the law of love.
“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”.
In the likes of The Laws of Attraction, The Secret, and The Science of Getting Rich, this books makes for an uplifting read. It begins by explaining that all matter begins with a thought which, by the way, some interpret as the universal consciousness. The message is to dream and to believe in and realize your dreams. ... Book Review: Manifestation Magic: How to Tap the Magic and the Power of Your Subconscious Mind to Manifest Anything and Change Your Life Forever By Nathan Cadbury » Katarina Nolte
Absolute detachment. This step is one where most people stumble. We like to control things in our life because we’re afraid that if we wouldn’t control them then they would not happen. And this is exactly the reason why we need to let them go. If we’re attached to what we want and we obsess about having it NOW then we’re simultaneously saying that we don’t believe that we can have it. Which undermines principle number 4 — creating an unflappable belief. By letting go of when and how, you show that you believe that it is already yours. Because only he who is certain of the outcome can afford to wait.
