“What you focus on with thought and feeling is what you attract into your experience, whether or not its something you want.”
– Rhonda Byrne, The Secret –
I watched The Secret today. I bought the book a year ago, and for some reason haven’t got around to reading it, but picked it up the other day, and decided to watch the film first.
It is an incredibly powerful film, all about The Law of Attraction.
According to Wikipedia, ‘The Law of Attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy.’
This also compliments the post that I wrote just the other day, ‘What we think, we become‘.
The central theme for the book and the film is the importance of filling your head, your thoughts, your body and your feelings with positivity, and being clear about what you desire to have in life, because like attracts like.
The concept of bringing The Law of Attraction into your life is based on a simple three-step process you can follow, which is:
1. Ask – Decide what you really want. Sit down and write it on a piece of paper. Write it in the present tense and be clear and specific.
2. Believe – You must believe that you have received it already. You must know that what you want is yours the moment you ask. You must have complete and utter faith and that you deserve it.
3. Receive – All you have to do to receive is feel good. When you are feeling good you are on the frequency of receiving. You are on the frequency of all good things coming to you, and you will receive what you have asked for.
And I can speak from complete and utterly honest experience when I say that if you follow these 3 simple steps (and I have been doing this subconsciously for quite some time), you will be able to manifest the most amazing things into your life.
By asking, believing and receiving, not only did I manifest sponsorship and a visa in order to stay in Australia, but I manifested my beautiful boyfriend, and most recently a wonderful new flat that we have both just moved into.
Now some sceptics out there may think this is all a little woo woo and far-fetched, and that is perfectly fine, it will just mean that you won’t be able to manifest, because you’ll be missing step 2 and most probably step 3 as well.
I would say to anyone who is wanting to manifest anything in their life, be it good health, wealth, love or even a new job, all you need to do is start with getting absolutely crystal clear about what it is that you want in life.
Then you must believe that you can have it, and that you deserve it. Believe that it is possible with every ounce of your being, physically and energetically will it to happen.
Close your eyes and visualise every day already having what you want and feeling the feelings. Focus on what you’re grateful for already and enjoy those things. Focus on all of the good things in your life and fill your head with good thoughts and your body with good feelings. Do things that you love and that make you feel happy. Surround yourself with positive people. And then release everything that you desire to The Universe and trust that it will work out how to manifest it.
According to W. Clement Stone ‘Whatever the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve.’ and its true. All we need to do is think about the things we desire in life and believe that we can have them, trust that we can and act upon these thoughts and feelings by taking action to prove to our body that they are possible.
If you wish to have a new car, go and test drive one, if you want to move into a dream house, go and view it or look at a photo of it every day. The list goes on . . .
So if you’re keen to test The Law of Attraction out for yourself, set yourself a goal, however big or small. Decide when you would like to have achieved it by. Get really clear and specific about what that thing is that you would like. Think good thoughts about it. Fill your body with good feelings. Be grateful for everything that you have in your life, by listing at least 3 gratitudes every day. Visualise that you already have the thing you desire, every day. Trust and believe that you already have it. Do this as often as you can. Focus on and fill your life with the things that you love. Be ready and open to receive whatever The Universe sends to you (even if they are things seemingly unrelated to your goal) and watch what happens . . . I promise you, you’ll be amazed.
When I focussed all of my energy, attention, love and passion on getting sponsorship for my company in order to be able to sponsor myself, over the 5 months that it took me to do everything I needed to do in order to be able to put my application in, at every single step of the way, The Universe sent me wonderful and amazing things and especially people to help me. Luckily I was trusting, humble and open enough at every step of the way to receive these gifts, which meant that in the end I was able to achieve something, that (to our knowledge) no one else in history has achieved.
So, the question is, what would you like to manifest. The only limitation is how big you can dream . . . .
