“To better understand the Law of Attraction, see yourself as a magnet attracting unto you the essence of that which you are thinking and feeling. And so, if you are feeling fat, you cannot attract thin. If you are feeling poor, you cannot attract prosperity. And so on. It defies Law.
The more you come to understand the power of the Law of Attraction, the more interest you will have in deliberately directing your thoughts-for you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. Without exception, that which you give thought to is that which you begin to invite into your experience.” ~ Mary Hodges
Now, knowing what the Law of Attraction is, we can learn how to consiously use it to our advantage. Now, obviously, every person uses this law regardless of whether they know about it or not. However, if we know and understand what it is, then we have the ability to help better our lives. Improve our financial situation, family problems, school issues, religious questions, etc. Before we discuss how to use the Law of Attraction, I would like to talk about the three laws that make up the Law of Attraction.
Speaking from my own point of view, as I cannot say what your experiences will be like, there are 3 components to the law of attraction. I have read lots of articles and a few books on the Law of Attraction and they all give more or less the same advice. However I have tweaked all the information and experimenting I have done on my own and come up with thefollowing three three components:
- The intention
- The power behind the intention
- The action toward the intention
Your intention is literally a statement of intent, something you want to achieve or have in the future. When I make my intentions I state the intention in the present tense while looking into the future. For example one of my intentions is to become a professional writer so I would word it:
‘I am now a professional writer, I make my salary from articles, I teach and write articles every day and love it and get paid for doing it’
Whilst saying this statement, internally or out loud, I visualise myself writing professional articles. I see myself teaching other people to write, I see myself giving seminars. I see myself sitting at home during the day and writing my articles and talking on the phone with other writers.
Another important aspect of the intention is to clear any resistance to the intention. With my previous example I still have resistance as I know I have to help provide for my family so my current job needs to be kept on. This is a blockage and a major blockage but I am working on it bit by bit.
The power behind the intention
This is another important aspect that a lot of people miss and it is the power or the force behind the intention. Before setting your intention gear up toward it and muster as much energy around the intention as you can. When I muster up the energy I delay the intention and build it up to such an extent as to have an excited feeling in my stomach that needs to be released. The only analogy I can think of is that feeling when you are absolutely bursting on a pee and you have to hold it for a few hours and then at the moment you go to the toilet and pee, it’s a fantastic feeling of release and pleasure.
When you know roughly what your intention is and you can see it in your mind, make it clearer and get excited about it. Do this during the day when you are working, think about it, don’t talk about it, but think about it all day or for a few days.
When you are ready to release the intention plan 15 – 30 minutes alone and release your intention and make it focused and visualise it, hear it, sense it, smell it. Give it all your five sense and release it and let it drift out to wherever it goes to manifest.
The action toward the intention
In the past I have stated the intention and let it go and thought about it occasionally. I didn’t like this way of doing it and have now come to a more powerful way, for me, of achieving the intention. I work toward it and think about it often.
Right now I am working toward my dream of becoming a writer. I am going into the business of writing, I am writing for other people, and I am making more money with AdSense, all in the hope that I will make enough money to either pay off the mortgage or make a lot more than I can working for a living. I have found this a much better way of manifesting my intentions than the old way I was using of simply stating the intention and then letting it go.
Knowing what makes up the Law of Attraction, we can move on to how to put it to use. Those three steps/rules are the basic “How To” instructions. However, the goal of this article is to break those down into a much more simpler, more concise ones.
1:Relax your mind. Meditate for 5 to 10 minutes. Doing this will increase brain power and have your mind at that relaxed state. This step is optional but recommended. Relaxation will make the entire process much much much easier.
2:Be sure about what you want and when you do decide don’t doubt yourself. Remember that you’re sending a request to the Universe which is created by thoughts, and therefore responds to thoughts. Know exactly what it is that you want. If you’re not clear/sure, the Universe will get an unclear frequency and will send you unwanted results. So be sure it is something you have strong enthusiasm for.
3:Ask the Universe for it. Make your request. You don’t have to actually speak or use words because it doesn’t hear words. Send a picture of what you want to the Universe. The Universe will answer. See this thing as already yours. See How to Visualize. The more detailed your vision, the better. If you’re wanting that Nintendo Wii, see yourself sitting down playing a game on it. See yourself feeling the controller, playing your favorite game(s), touching the console. If there’s that person you have a crush on, see yourself walking with her/him, touching or caressing the person, or even kissing the person. You get the idea.
4:Write your wish down. Start with “I am so happy and grateful now that…” and finish the sentence (or paragraph) telling the Universe what it is that you want. Write it in the present tense as if you have it right now. Avoid negation terms (see Warnings for more on this). Every day until your wish comes true, close your eyes and imagine your desire as if it’s happening right now.
5:Feel it. Feel the way you will now after receiving your wish. You must act, speak, and think as if you are receiving it now. This is actually the most important, powerful step in using the Law of Attraction because this is where it starts working, and sometimes if you do this you don’t feel like you need it anymore because you FEEL like you already have it! and then the universe will manifest this thought and feeling and you will receive it.
6:Show Gratitude. Write down all the things the Universe has given you. Be thankful for what you already have and be thankful for all the things the Universe has given you. The Universe has done a lot of things for us. Paying the Universe back with some gratitude will motivate the Universe to do even more things and will draw more things into your life. If you were once bullied and that person stopped, that’s one thing to be thankful for. If the person you’re crushing on likes you back, or doesn’t but she/he didn’t send their lover out to hurt you, that’s another thing to thank the Universe for. You should also thank the Universe for this process too. Showing gratitude will turbo boost the Universe to manifest your request faster.
7:Trust the Universe. Imagine an alternate dimension that is almost exactly like the real world but whatever you truly desire comes true in an instant. See yourself in that dimension, where whatever you ask the Universe for comes to you in an instant. Don’t look for what you asked for; this is where people tend to mess up. If you have to keep an eye out for an event that manifests your wish, it’s only telling the Universe you don’t have it and you will attract…not having it. Be patient.Don’t get upset if these things don’t happen immediately. Don’t stress the “how” of things. Let the Universe do it for you. When you take the Universe’s job of worrying about the “how”, this says you’re lacking faith and that you’re telling the Universe what to do when the Universe has far greater knowledge and power than human mankind.
