Today, I watched another video of some marketing hotshot disparaging the Law of Attraction as pie-in-the-sky dreaming. The people dismissing the Law of Attraction are ignoring the fact that action without belief or confidence will fail. A salesman trying to get an order will be rejected more often if he doubts he’ll get it. If a person goes for a job interview, but doesn’t feel qualified, probably won’t get the job. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
However, I understand why many people are dismissing the Law of Attraction. Some folks who have seen “The Secret” are under the impression that all they need to do to manifest their desire is to meditate and focus on it and that will draw it to them. Unfortunately, that’s not the full story. If the Law of Attraction hasn’t been working for you, here are four reasons why it hasn’t and what to do about them.
1. You’re actually focusing on your goal not being in your life.
When you’re thinking of your desire, you’re really feeling the lack of it. By continuing to concentrate on it, you’re not believing that it’s on its way. As an example, if you’re in a restaurant, and order a meal, you forget about it, having faith that the kitchen is already at work on it. You don’t keep asking your waitress when your food will arrive (unless it’s been a ridiculously long time). Once you’ve visualized and focused on your desire, you need to let it go and allow your subconscious, and the Universe, work out how it will be brought to you.
2. You’re hiding your light under a bushel.
If people are necessary to achieve your goal, you have to get out among people. You can’t manifest in a vacuum. You need to get out and about and let people know what you’re offering. If you want more business, get out and market. The same is true if you want a relationship. Go where there are people of like mind. Join an organization or take classes in a subject you’re interested in. I know that many people say, “Build it and they will come,” but that won’t happen if your market or ideal person doesn’t know about you. Let your light shine by getting visible.
3. You haven’t convinced your subconscious you actually want your goal.
Newton’s First Law says, ” A body at rest tends to stay at rest. A body in motion tends to stay in motion.” Your subconscious isn’t going to take the Universe’s energy to create something new if you’re immobile. It won’t see any reason to make a change in the current situation. To get its attention and accept that you want something new, you need to be taking some action. Even if you don’t know which direction to go, pick something to do that will get the energy moving. As long as the energy is beginning to move, you can be Divinely guided.
4. You’re not acting as if you are on the way to having your goal.
I don’t mean for you to go out and spend money you don’t have. But when you believe your desire is on the way, you’ll begin acting in ways that will put you in places where it can find you. Someone who wants to reduce weight will begin eating smaller portions and exercising, because that is what a thinner person does. If you want more income, you seek channels that will bring money to you. Behave as if your goal is looking for you and meet it halfway.
Focusing on your goal, and belief that it can be and is yours, are key elements to The Law of Attraction. But within those aspects there are a lot of facets that need to be addressed to be able to consciously manifest. The Law of Attraction is always operating. Use these ideas and work with them to bring you what you want.
The Universe has already approved of and granted me my desire. All I need to do is focus on it, believe and accept it. I take any action I can to bring it into reality, knowing that I am guided in the right directions. What I am seeking is seeking me. I act as if it is already mine, and move forward to welcome it gratefully.
