Law of Attraction in Action: Declare Yourself

This is post 116 in my series on the Law of Attraction in Action. You CAN use your power to attract all that you need. I do it every day! Read all the posts in my Law of Attraction in Action Series to see how.

Sometimes I find it hard to get myself moving. I say affirmations and talk to God. But, at those times, my energy level is usually low, so what I do is usually a tepid attempt to get myself going forward. It can be hard to get out of a funk, or overcome tiredness or fear. Even when you’re as spiritual as I am, life can weigh your spirit down and make you forget to use your power.

It takes a strong move to get you back on track.

I’ve been tired lately and it’s been hard to keep up with everything I have on my plate. I began to feel out of control about manifesting. I read spiritual material and knew what I had to do but couldn’t get started. It made me feel down. Every day I’d put off doing spiritual work. Being tired can overshadow your good sense and your motivation to overcome it. But I had to do something! And I did.

I stood up, took a deep breath, and declared out loud, “My mojo is back and I’m attracting what I need to move forward!”

It kind of stunned me. And, it woke me up. It was my choice to succumb to being tired or take control and change my situation. Making a loud declaration helped me to do that. I went to a mirror and declared it again while looking myself in the eye. By putting all the emotion I felt from the frustration and being held back by my exhaustion into my declaration, it went out loud and clear.

Making a loud declaration of your intentions is the best way to connect to the power of the Law of Attraction.

It doesn’t matter what you want. Whether you want a better job, more money, a healthy romantic partner, a great living space, better health, etc., take some deep breaths (when you’re alone!) and shout it to the Universe in a clear, firm, strong declaration. Doing so got me going. I continued to declare, “My mojo is back!” All day long. The more I said it, the more I felt my energy returning. I also declared that I was sleeping well, every single night. The more I said that, the better my sleep. That helped alleviate my tiredness.

Declarations help build the momentum to create emotions needed to manifest.

Affirmations work well but when you’re feeling stuck, make a bigger, louder, stronger declaration of what you want in the present tense, as if you already have it, because you do if you believe you do. So, when you really want to call upon the power of the Law of Attraction to work in your favor, don’t just talk about what you want to people, or dream about it, or do affirms without any energy behind them. Instead, make a strong declaration of what you want as if you already have it. Keep it up until you believe it. 

When you do, the Law of Attraction will work in your favor to bring it on!

    After reading this when it was posted initially, I decided that today I needed to put this into action. And it really worked to change my attitude. I usually do any sort of affirmation silently, but there is something about declaring what I want out loud that makes it seem more concrete. More real. Thank you for sharing.

    Yeah Roz! Keep it up. : )

    Thanks, Roz. Just the kick in the pants I needed! I’ve been feeling tired lately and have been procrastinating on tasks I know I need to deal with.

    Making that out loud vocal declaration while looking myself in the eye in the mirror put a spring in my step and some energy in my day! Great idea – thanks for sharing it.

    I just kinda happened upon your blog. I LOVE this stuff. I FULLY believe in the Law of Attraction as I have seen it work MANY times in my life. I have already in 38 years had more life experiences than most people would have in 3 lifetimes. The Law of Attraction has ALWAYS been my “secret”.

    Far From It

    Hi Daylle! You obviously know what you’re talking about when it comes to apllying the law of attraction and making it practical.

    I’m curious as to whether or not you’ve heard of The 11 Forgotten Laws by Bob Proctor?

    It took my attraction power up a few notches!

    Thanks Joel! I’ve reaaly studied the LOA and use it a lot. I just know of The 11 Forgotten Laws. am a fan of Bob’s.
