Mastering the Law of Attraction; Or, creating what you *really* want! (VIDEO)

posted by B. Dave Walters

The world is in your hands


So last time we made some goals, it’s time to put it into action.

Before we talk too much about making a plan, I want to clarify some things. I recently wrote an article on how to make the Secret / Law of Attraction work every time, and I think it’s relevant to what we are talking about. So I am going to repost it here, in case you never read it; and if you have, but aren’t manifesting what you want all the time…then read it again :)

Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.
Dale Carnegie

I’m writing this article in honor of all the wonderful new friends I have made from the Secret page on Facebook.

I recently wrote about how the Law of Attraction is one of 7 Universal Laws but I want to focus exclusively on the Law of Attraction, and more importantly how to make it work 100% of the time.

The first thing you have to realize, is that the Secret / Law of Attraction is not just positive thinking, and it is NOT some sort of trick or gimmick you use to grant wishes.

The Law of Attraction is you using the power you have been given to co-create your life with God. The key is to recognize to using of the Law is a Divine act, and by extension every thought you think are Divine and Creative acts.

The other important thing, is to realize the Law is *always * in effect, ALL of the time. Which means, if things are happening that you don’t want, what is it inside of YOU that is creating it?
Let me give you an example: let’s say you decide to manifest a sum of money, say $1,000 to pay your rent. When you think about it, do you think of how great it will be to have that money, how grateful you are for having a place to live, and family and friends to share it with? Do you think of how fortunate you are to live in a time and place where you can enjoy all the luxuries and conveniences you have that Kings and Queens would have killed to possess?

Or, do you worry about what will happen if you don’t pay the rent, or how you’ll get kicked out if you pay it late, or even how silly you’ll feel if the money doesn’t manifest?

Unless you are totally focused on the positive outcome, it will not manifest. The Secret / Law of Attraction is like sunlight; it’s all around you, all the time. Being conscious of it, and using it to consciously co-create your life is like using a magnifying glass to concentrate that light into a laser focus.

I wrote previously about every Human Being has 4 bodies, and I said I’d write in the future about how we have 3 minds. Well, I still don’t have time to go into it fully right now (I promise to soon!) but I do want to point out one thing.

One of our minds is the subconscious mind, which I’m sure you’re familiar with; the subconscious runs things like our heart beat and breathing. More importantly, it holds all of our memories and dreams, and is your link to God in prayer, meditation, or when using the The Secret / Law of Attraction.

The most important thing you need to know about the subconscious, is that it is like a little child; it takes EVERYTHING personally. If you say something to yourself like “I am so STUPID; I can’t believe I did that!”, or “I am fat and ugly, no one will ever love me”, or “who am I to want to be wealthy; my friends and family are poor, I am going to be poor”, or even “if anyone knew I was into the Law of Attraction stuff they’d all laugh at me”, then your subconscious will take that to be *literally * true.

This is why I’ve said in the past that you can’t afford the luxury of one negative thought, not even one. Because you have a permanent record that is always recording, and more importantly bringing you what you think about.

See, many of us sit down for 5 minutes and dream about our goals and basically “wish upon a Secret” and hope something happens…and spend the rest of the day thinking about and focusing on negativity!
Now I hear you, how do you give up negative thinking? Well, it’s not easy! But I also wrote another article here that will help you do just that.
And finally, realize that everything happens for a reason, and that God is in control of everything. Everything that happens to you is the best possible thing at the best possible time, or it wouldn’t be happening.

Now, wait a second; doesn’t that sound like a contradiction???

Not quite! That is why I said *co-creating * your life. Most of us live life like we are driving bumper cars, ramming again and again up against the same old walls until we learn to drive better. Lucky for us, God has put bumpers on the car and pads in the seats!

What I mean is, don’t resist life. Have faith that you are being guided and moving in the right direction; everything you have you have asked for, and God gave to you. If God gave it to you, then it can’t be so bad, can it?
Remember, gratitude is the foundation of the Law of Attraction, if you aren’t grateful for where you are, who you are, and what you have right now, then you will NEVER have anything better.

So, to summarize the steps of how to make the Law of Attraction work 100% of the time:

Step 1: Realize it IS already working 100% of the time, so you don’t have to do anything to make it work!

Step 2: Decide what it is that you want in absolute clarity.

Step 3: Realize that if you’re not getting what you want, something inside of you is focusing on the wrong things.

Step 4: Stay focused on what it is that you want to happen at all times, and in all situations; this will be difficult at first, but gets easier. The more you expect good things, the more good things start to happen.

Step 5: Realize that everything you get, is the absolute perfect thing that you need to happen, or it wouldn’t be happening. Whatever lessons you need to learn are right in front of your face. If you can’t see them, ask God to show them to you in a clearer way.

No matter what your spiritual beliefs are, I hope you can see that you were created by a Power that loves you, that wants you to succeed and especially to be happy. You’ve been taught the Law so that you can use it, it will not fail, it can not fail. Embrace your nature as a child of God and go for it!

I want to leave you with one last thought:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
-Marianne Williamson

Getting rid of worry and fear; Or, knowing what you want (Video)

Remember how yesterday we talked about you writing down what you want?
So, did you do it?  Did take the time to write down what you want?
If you didn’t, do it now!  If you aren’t willing to take the time to at least make a list, then it is not very likely you are going to put in the effort to actually make it happen.

So if you didn’t, stop here until you do.

OK, so if you did it: let’s go on =)

Now that you have your list of ‘wants’, lets convert them into some goals. You may have heard it said that goals need to be S.M.A.R.T. Which means specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, timely.

Specific means it has to be something, well, specific! Like I said yesterday, “I want to be happy” isn’t specific. Neither is something like “I want more money”; if I give you a $1 then you have ‘more’ money. So specific is something like “I want to have an income of over $70,000 a year”

Measurable means that you can know when you have it, or at least when you are getting close! Like if you have a goal to lose 10 pounds, then you can look at the scale and see if you did it or not. Or at least if you are moving in the right direction.

Actionable means you have to be able to do something to make it happen.

Realistic is a sticky one. I think quite often people use this as an excuse to aim low, and you know I like BIG goals! But if you say something like “I want to be President of the United States this year” and there is no election, or “I want to win a Gold Medal at this year’s Summer Olympics” that might be tough…since there are no games this year!
So rather than realistic, the goal should at least be POSSIBLE.

Timely means you need to set a deadline. The difference between a goal and a dream is a deadline. Decide when you want to have these things by.

Figure out what your goals are, and tomorrow we’ll start putting a plan in place to make them happen.

You are great, and I love you!

Remember last time when I asked who you are?
Well, there are two possible answers: The first, is that you ARE. You are pure energy, you are infinite; you have always existed and always will exist.
The other answer, is you are who you choose to be. Any of the labels you used to describe yourself are labels that have been placed on you, or that you have chosen to accept; but they aren’t YOU, they don’t define you.
They only have what power over you that you give them. So because of that, you can be whomever you want.
You can recreate yourself however you want, at any time.

So that leads to today’s question: what do you want?
Take some time to write down what you want, but BE SPECIFIC!
Don’t say things like “I want to be happy” or, “I want to feel peaceful” because any emotional state is within your power to create at any time.
Outside forces don’t dictate how you feel, how you feel dictates your outside environment!
I don’t want to talk to much about feelings just now, so let’s start with what you want.

And, if you really don’t know what you want, then the easiest thing to do is start with a list of what you DON’T want!
Write down everything in your life that isn’t working right now, and once you have it you can take the opposite of each and make it your ‘do want’ list.
Does that make sense?

For instance, you may say “I don’t want my husband / wife to ignore me”, which can be restated as “I want full and open communication with my husband / wife”.

Start with that, and we’ll talk more later.

I have a question for you; since this is our first day together, we’ll start simple.
Who are you?

Really, take some time to think about it: who are you?
If you answered with your name, that’s now you: that’s your name.
If you answered with your job title, that’s not you: that’s what you do to make money.
If you said you’re a Christian, Muslim, Atheist…that’s not you, that’s what you believe.
If you said you’re a man, or a woman, that’s not you: that’s your gender.
If you say you’re a mother or father, that’s not you: that just means you’ve reproduced.

Keep peeling back the labels until you see what’s underneath.

Think about it, and feel free to answer below. If you can’t think of it, I’ll tell you tomorrow.

I am glad to know you, and my life is better for it.
We are going to change the world together!

You are great, and I love you!

(This was posted by a friend of mine on Facebook, but it was so brilliant I had to repost it here:)
Girls want to control the man in their life. Grown Women know that if he’s truly hers, he doesn’t need controlling. Girls check you for not calling them. Grown women are too busy to realize you hadn’t. Girls are afraid to be alone. Grown women revel in it using it as a time for personal growth. Girls ignore the good guys. Grown women ignore the bad guys. Girls make you come home. Grown women make you want to come home. Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans. Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits. Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man. Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man. Girls try to monopolize all their man’s time (i.e., don’t want him hanging with his friends). Grown women realize that a lil’ bit of space makes the ‘together time’ even more special-and goes to kick it with her own friends. Girls think a guy crying is weak. Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue. Girls want to be spoiled and ‘tell’ their man so. Grown women ‘show’ him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate without fear of losing his ‘manhood’. Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it. Grown women know that was just one man. Girls fall in love and chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all ‘signs’. Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, don’t always love you back-and move on, without bitterness.
