We hear it all the time. In our quest to, "find ourselves", we come across the phrase, "Power of Attraction". Some believe, but they don't know quite sure why they do, and others suck their teeth and role their eyes, at the perceived non-sense of it all. Those who believe with limited understanding are doing it in hopes of "making their dreams come true". The one's who think it's crock are the ones who may have "tried it", but nothing Manifested as they had hoped. Here's the thing... in order to understand the "Power of Attraction", we must first go beyond the physical definition.
When we hear the word attraction, we think of magnets, love interest, a compelling draw toward two things. When you put the word Power in front of that people think they have the "power" to make what ever they want happen just the way they want, and they can attract any outcome or thing that they want. Now although this is partially true, it's only the half of it.
What has been the case for many before us, is that we "practice" attracting good things into our lives, and we even say these affirmations outloud daily. We say stuff like, "I am this" or " I'm enjoying having that". They say these things, and think these attraction thoughts in hopes of again, "manifesting" what they want. Usually by only doing half of what it takes, the desired outcomes is a no go each and every time.
What the, "Law of Attraction" is, is simply that. A Law.....and guess what even via the flesh there are so many of us that break the law. When you break a law the outcome is usally unpleasant. With the law of attraction their is a right way and a wrong way.
First, because we are use to doing it the wrong way, let's discuss the wrong way to use the, "Law of Attraction".
Okay, take for example there is a new position available at work. You really want this position, so you go into your "magical thinking" ......"I have received my desired new job"....."I am already happy to be in my new position", like any magic, there must be a process to get to the "TA-DA". Simply saying these things means nothing.......You have to feel these things. Okay, now let's not get squirmy. Let me explain how we feel the things we desire.
What I mean by feeling the things you desire, I mean putting out a good feeling a good vibration. So in order to get the new position you asked the Universe for, your vibration, that feeling inside of you, your spirit, must be in a good place. The only way good things come to you, is when you are in a good place. If you want the new position, and you say these great things about getting the position, but your inner feelings are actually "fearful, anxious, impatient, uncertain, resentful, or envious about the idea of getting the job, it's safe to say you are not going to get the job, it's the law. Here are some examples of how this feeling can show up in reference to you wanting the job.
You may be really excited about the job for a brief moment and in that brief moment your vibration is kickin, boy are you feeling good, but as soon as that feeling kicks in you begin to think the following.
When you read those bullet points, how did you feel? You felt bad didn't you? That feeling vibrates very lowly in your Spirit, and good things can not come from a low vibration. This is law. The Law of Attraction means you can attract good or bad. Good feelings bring good experience, and bad feelings bring bad experiences. It's a very simple concept.
Not only does thinking negatively about the new position you are going for cause a hiccup in your manifestation plans, but you also catch a snag in your life that can cause you to be in a low vibrational state.
Now let's get to the good stuff. The how to. Well first let me just clue you in on something. You have always known how to, I guess this moment in your life, as you read this post, is the moment you created because now it's time to make sense of all of this and be reminded how. No worries, it happens to all of us. Those who are willing to do it right enjoy the benefits of this powerful ability to create what we truly desire.
So let's get back to this new position. In this example we will manifest this new position. First off, just the idea of getting this new position feels good. Instead of tossing that feel goodness for some low vibrational thoughts, you are going to hold on to that good feeling by envisioning yourself in this desired position. You see yourself in your new office, you see yourself having lunch with new coworkers, you can see it. It's in your minds eye and it's as vivid as a 3D movie. Man that vibration is getting a little bit stronger. Now you are going on about your day. And things pop up in your life. Maybe you find out that your light bill is overdue. Your cousin wants you to watch her baby, and you really don't want to, but you don't know how to tell her, and on top of all that your neighbors dog has been pooping in your yard.
Although you felt good earlier in the day, now you feel a bit down because you barely have enough money to cover the bill, your cousin's baby is a terror and your neighbors stupid dog poop ruined your brand new shoes. So you are feeling pretty lousy. These lousy feelings float up into the universe and you cash those feelings in for stuff you just wouldn't really ever even ever want EVER!!!!
So instead of putting your vibration in jeopardy of feeling good when all of this stuff is happening in your life, you control what you feel. You are going to feel your heart sink in your chest, and into your stomach when you see past due bills, but you don't stay in that space. You say HOLD UP, UH UH...."I'm not even going to go there" You change your outlook on the past due bill. "You know I'm really glad to even be able to pay my bill, so I'm happy" AND STOP THERE....don't say, "I'm really glad to even be able to pay my bill because I don't really have money like that to be spending" Okay, don't say that because if you do the attention is back on not having enough money and that brings your vibration down again, which real in turn cause you to attract the things you do not want.
Now in reference to your cousins baby. If your cousin's baby is a terror and you really don't want to watch the kid, then say, "no". You have the right to say no, and if that little wild cat of a child is going to send your vibration down the crapper, just say no. You may even feel bad for turning her down, and that too will bring down your vibration, but if you recognize what you are doing to your vibration you can intentionally focus on something that will bring you up a notch. As for the dog poop, that's gonna be a tuff one. Cleaning poop off of the bottom of a shoe is never good vibrationally for anyone. In fact just the idea alone will send all types of unwanted poop your way, so let's just stop talking about it all together. I'm being silly, but honestly don't spend to much time mad about the dog poop. If throwing the shoes in the trash makes you feel better, then get to tossin.
Your main objective in obtaining the things that you desire, is by having a vibration that attracts desirable things. If your vibration is low, you will attract undesirable things. If you want to attract something specific, you must have a good vibration surrounding what it is that you want and you must check your icky thoughts and feelings as they float in and then trade those icky thoughts and feelings for good ones........Man even reading that sentense alone brough me back up to where I want to be feeling right now, and that's SUPER GOOD.
In this example, you get the position you desire because you feel good about it, and you feel good more times than not during the course of your applying and getting the new job.
Let's recap, on how to attract our specific wants in our life.
Now let's recap on how to attract good things into your life in general, on a consistent basis.
