It’s not a new concept that your thoughts are things. What you think about comes to you. As a Coach I run across many people who study the law of attraction, yet still find themselves short of their ideal life and outcome. Why is that?
It’s certainly not because one person deserves a better life then another. It could be however that a series of things are out of play.
Affirmations used to play a major role in personal development. We repeated wonderful declarations in hope for a better life.
Then we learned about direction of thought which seemed like Affirmations on steroids. If we thought about what we really wanted it would come to fruition.
After that, the concept of ‘Asking‘ became a new ingredient into the soup of making sure you express your desires. Make sure you are specific they said. (which is a bit different from my teaching – see below)
Then being open to ‘receiving’ became the next missing link for those who still hadn’t gotten their just rewards. Know that you are worthy.
Since then, ‘aligning’ with your direct thought has become a major factor in the equation. Get into the vibration of what you want to manifest.
Are you getting tired yet? Is there an end to the formula? I am not sure. I am certainly an advocate and teacher of the law of attraction. I just want everyone to reap the rewards. So what could I possibly add to this plethora of tools to ensure that we create it all?
Well, I have a few things. Yes a few more things to add.
The first one has to do with my statement above about being specific. I have found many a person forcing themselves to be clear about what they want just so they can play the ‘game’ correctly. There they become committed to a certain amount of money, a definite type of partner or a home with all the details. If they didn’t get exactly that, they called the process a failure.
For years I have tried to lighten up the pressure of that type of commitment and asked my clients to instead get VERY SPECIFIC on how they want to FEEL when they get ‘there’. You see, we may not always know what we want but we ALWAYS know how we want to FEEL.
So my suggestion is that you align with a feeling and not a ‘thing’. Sit for a bit in silence and feel the way an ideal life feels. Peaceful, adventurous, easy, secure? There are so many choices based on your desires. For me, I love to feel ease, fun and freedom with abundant energy. Take a look and allow yourself to bask in the delights of the way you want to feel.
My second suggestion is that you bring frequency into the pot. What that means is, that you get the results directly related to the energy you put in. So if you allow yourself to feel your desired feelings for 5 minutes a day, and nothing is shaking… then do it more frequently. You deserve this.
