The Law of Attraction is hot a topic for those who want to manifest a better existence and one of the main tools that contribute to manifestation success is visualization.

What is the Law of Attraction? The process refers to the energetic concept of ‘like attracts like’ and is a pivotal principle to creating a limitless life. Previously it was defined as ‘thought creates form,’ but practitioners of this law soon discovered that emotions were a key driver in creation. It’s for this reason that affirmations, positive statements of desire, repeated to affect the subconscious, often don’t elicit a response if they are not fueled by positive emotions. Visualization is a practice that can elicit this emotional response by creating internal representations of what you desire and in doing so sparking the associated feelings.

As the Law of Attraction is vibrationally based, it responds to your thoughts, actions, words, and emotions which must all be aligned in order to manifest your desires. If you’re saying, “I want a fulfilling new job” but cringe and feel fear when you look at the job classifieds then what you’re feeling and what you want are vibrationally opposed. The challenge is to align positive thoughts and feelings to attract more of the same.

As the Law of Attraction has gained momentum I’ve witnessed another challenge that can sabotage success and that’s using the visualization tool for too long and not anchoring and actualizing the experience into the 3D world. Those who discover the Law of Attraction often get excited by the principle of first in the mind and then in reality. They learn the power of visualization, a state of relaxing and playing out desired scenarios, like movies, in their mind to elicit the emotions to activate the manifestation process. Vision boards are another tool where a visual display of the desired lifestyle is created through pictures and words.

These seemingly simple manifestation concepts are appealing as many are often exhausted by decades of ‘doing’. It feels nice to sit back and relax into mental and emotional co-creation. But here’s a theme I’ve noticed amongst clients; they spend months, years and sometimes decades practicing the Law of Attraction and working through and healing issues as they arise, but when the manifestation occurs they often feel uncomfortable and sometimes even reject the bounty that is being bestowed upon them. The reason revolves around healing challenges and blocks which is important otherwise they will remain an inhibitor to manifesting the desired experience. You can’t just focus on the desires and ignore the elephant in the room of what’s been tripped you up time and time again. Here’s something I know for sure, if you haven’t manifested, there’s a part of you that believes it’s beneficial to stay the way you are and until you address that progress is going to be slow or halted.
