Position Yourself for Self- Empowerment by Dyan Garris

I write a lot about the Law of Attraction in a variety of situations. It really is the biggest power tool for getting what we choose to have. Yet so many people complain that they try to think happy thoughts and do affirmations but don’t manifest. There really are a lot more dynamics that you can work on that don’t have to take ages.

Today, I’m pleased to have Dyan Garris stop by on her virtual book tour. She is the author of several books, including Money and Manifesting, in which she shares an interesting perspective on the Law of Attraction and has suggestions for manifesting more. She explains how our energy is also a factor in doing so. I learned a lot about effectively balancing chakras when I read it. Here she shares a sample:



The purpose of The Secret according to the teachers of The Secret was to raise awareness about the Law of Attraction. And raise awareness they did. The concept of the laws of attraction and the power of positive thinking are now indelibly etched into our brains. These principles needed to be introduced and accepted into collective consciousness as the spiritual truths that they are in order to set the foundation for ascension and transformation. It’s a very good start, but these teachers are correct when they now tell us that they left something out.


As a clairvoyant counselor I’ve talked to a lot of people who’ve attempted to apply the laws of attraction and the power of positive thinking diligently in their lives. And absolutely nothing changed. Of course nothing changed, because we have half of “secret.” So what is missing? Where do we go from here? Do we now order the “missing instruction manual” for The Secret and try to apply it for the next year? Do we really have to wait years, as Rhonda Byrne did, for our journey of self-empowerment and transformation to manifest?

This simply does not have to take years. This type of shift can happen instantaneously when we have the desire and then the proper knowledge for integrating change. Manifesting money or anything else does not have to be an overwhelming struggle.


To begin with, there are many things that can stand in the way of manifesting. Limited underlying belief systems, fear, illusions, patterns and a sense of entitlement are just a few. We first need to know how to clear these in order to manifest our desires. It isn’t hard. It doesn’t have to be time consuming. And it can even be enjoyable.

One of the keys to manifesting is the knowledge of how energy works and how energy flows.

Without that knowledge you can’t manifest much of anything, even if you think about something all day long. Contrary to popular belief, we do not manifest with our minds. And yes we do have to actually DO something other than just think positive thoughts about what we desire.


However, the very real power of creation resides in our root chakras, in our base. Do we conceive offspring with our minds? Once we understand this as a basis, we have the beginning of the real secrets of manifesting. If you’re trying to conceive with your mind, you’re in the wrong position. Turn around and see what happens.

Thanks to Dyan Garris for sharing some of her knowledge. She’s the author of Money and Manifesting, Voice of the Angels, A Healing Journey Spiritual Cards, The Book of Daily Channeled Messages, Talk To Your Food! Intuitive Cooking, and Fish Tale of Woe, Lost At Sea. She publishes a Daily Channeled Message at Voice of the Angels. In 2005 she created a series of music and meditation CDs for healing, Automatic Chakra Balance, help in sleeping, relaxation, and vibrational attunement of mind, body, and spirit.

    Daylle: Thank you for hosting me today. I absolutely love your blog and your posts on the laws of attraction and self-empowerment. I’m glad you enjoyed the book. One thing I do want to mention for your readers is that chakra balance is only one part of manifesting. The goal is to open an energy flow, so that you open a pathway for the energy of money. I’ll be checking in throughout the day if anyone has any questions. Dyan

    I’m always wanting to learn more about the Law of Attraction and this post really taught me some new stuff. Thanks!

  • Dyan Garris

    Hi Becky. Thank you for leaving a comment. The laws of attraction are also one part in the process of manifesting. That is why some people are having challenges with it. As I mentioned in the post, when you’re implementing the laws of attraction you are really only using the power of one chakra. You need the power of rest of them along with that in order to really make things happen. Dyan
