Law of Attraction in Action: Focus on the Desire

This is post 140 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.

When I was studying the Law of Attraction, I listened to one of Michael Losier’s CDs. He really helped me to understand the importance of focusing on what you want all day long, with strong positive emotion. My agent didn’t think I’d get the book deal I wanted at the time. There were already 2 offers on the table but I didn’t want either of them. My agent implored me to be realistic. I reassured her that I was. My reality was getting the deal I wanted, not settling for the editors that wanted me. I intended to get that deal and followed Michael Losier’s advice as much as I could.


What he said raised my consciousness about the importance of getting myself excited about what I desired, and to think of it as already mine, even if I didn’t have it yet. Whenever I could, I screamed and joyfully shouted that the book deal I wanted was mine. Over and over and over. It felt funny at first but the more I did it the more I generated stronger positive emotions. I truly believe that doing this was the true key factor in my getting the book deal I was focused on, which happened as I affirmed it would.

Make the effort to feel what you want as if you already have it. Focus on the prize, the end game, not what  you don’t have or how hard it will be to manifest it. Check out this video of Michael Losier speaking about it:

    So much is left out of this little blurb. Number one, as a Nation, we must be seeing ourselves with more clarity these days, I would think. As it is wriiten: “Ask and thou shalt receive.” This does not mean that what you are asking for is what “you’ll get.” There is a plan. With Faith and an attitude of gratitude, we get what we need. Many times later in our journey’s we realize why we were put on a certain path, ie. not getting what we wanted. It’s not what you get, it’s what you give.

    The law of attraction has done more damage to people and our society than it has good. Number one, there is no such thing as getting whatever you want, and if you do manage to do this — you will be sorry in the long run.

    Secondly, the law of attraction is gravely misrepresented in how it works. The way you view the world and respond to it, creates your reality to a large degree. There is no such thing as magically and magnetically attracting to yourself anything you desire. That is crazy and immature spirituality and I cannot believe so many people have bought into this narcissistic nonsense. In the coming years we are going to see people setting the record straight and “re-doing” the LOA in a way that makes sense. So many people have written books that are absolutely ridiculous. I am sorry, no offense to the author of this blog…I am sure she is a very nice person, but she is part of the ridiculousness. Hopefully this post will save people from a lot of damage and craziness.

    When you realize this is all illusion then YES You can create what you desire.

    Great speech, even though according to one of the most famous, unforgettable business philosophers, Mr. Jim Rohn,
    the Law of Attraction is also:
    If you want to attract attractive people,

    So there’s still a lot of work to be done by Michael…
    He should definitely drop down some weight
    and get a stylist to dress better
    and achieve better “vibes” himself…

    Nobody is perfect…;-)!

    Our universe is made up of dichotomies, positive and negative forces, good and evil, light and darkness, up and down, on and off, up and down, etc. etc.. What this author has written and said in the L.O.A. is inherently true. Many of us have known this for a very long time-subconsciously-this only brings the L.O.A.above the surface- for us to clearly appreciate and realize in our own lives. However, in order for the power to be fully actualized by the individual, it requires the acquistion for the greater good- in essence-use the power to do something great for our society- something totally positive and totally unselfish

    I saw Micheal Losier, 3 years ago, bought the book and had much success. I would very much like to see him again because I feel I have fell off the track. I will start re-reading his book. It helped change my life now I need to change it again.LOL
