Law of Attraction
There is an abundance of material available about the Law of Attraction and how to manifest one’s dreams into reality, but you do not have to be a subject matter expert to manifest your desires. My experiences of manifestation began long before I knew of the Law of Attraction, although I confused them at the time with precognition.
A number of years ago, I relocated from Hampshire, England to Brighton on the South East coast. Determined to buy my dream apartment, I began viewing properties but found nothing that met my requirements – prices were extremely high and I was just starting out in my career on a relatively low salary. Frustrated at viewing so many apartments that did not meet my needs, I took some time out to think about what I actually desired. Using a scrapbook purchased specifically for this exercise, I began to cut out magazine pictures of preferred fixtures and even wrote down a description of my ideal home.
I was very specific in this process by choosing only one of each item: one carpet, one kitchen fascia, one bathroom tap, one set of bathroom tiles, one light fitting, one colour of paint, one type of skirting board, one shower screen, one type of flooring, and so the list went on. My description of the apartment was also extremely detailed: large square shaped lounge with three sash windows looking straight onto the English Channel, one New York loft style kitchen off the lounge, one large hallway, two bathrooms and a separate WC, large main bedroom with two built in wardrobes either end, one small staircase leading to a spare bedroom and bathroom. At the time, I was simply having fun and getting excited about how my new home could be – I honestly didn’t stop to consider that my specification would cost double my budget.
Shortly after completing my scrapbook, I saw an advertisement for an apartment in Brighton. It had no photographs and no description other than “two bedroom apartment with sea view”. For some reason, I felt compelled to schedule a viewing of this property and no others. When I arrived outside the building with my friend Sean, I looked at him and said, without thought, “I will buy this one”. He looked at me as if I was crazy.
When we entered the apartment, neither of us could speak. It had everything from my scrapbook. Everything: the carpet, light fittings, tiles, room sizes, views, taps, staircase. It was an exact replica of my specification. On asking the price, I was astounded because it was within my budget. I had three structural surveys completed, thinking that there must be something seriously wrong with the property. When I asked spirit why I was being offered this opportunity, they told me that the apartment would provide me with the flexibility I would require in future to pursue my spiritual work.
For a long time, I honestly thought that I had simply seen the future, but learned some years later that I had actually manifested my dream home using the Law of Attraction. I have had many other experiences with the Law of Attraction without actually realising it at the time. I recently manifested an opportunity to move to the USA – this has always been my dream. My new home is my dream property and I am so glad to share it with friends and family. When I recently applied for a green card, my attorney advised me that it would take at least two years. I decided that it would be three weeks, so I wrote myself letters every day congratulating myself for receiving my green card. On holiday in Hawaii at Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy program, I meditated each day thinking how happy I was to have my green card so quickly. Upon returning home to Tennessee, my attorney called asking if I knew someone in the White House because my green card had arrived in three weeks!
Having read a lot about the Law of Attraction, I realised that I have been using this wonderful universal law all of my life. Although I do not need further personal evidence, it is fascinating to understand how the Law of Attraction operates.
The Law of Attraction is a natural law of the Universe. Take the example of gravity – it does not matter who you are or where you are on the planet, if you jump off a cliff, you will fall. The laws of the Universe do not distinguish between us and never fail. The Law of Attraction is the same – no matter who you are, it works!
If we were created by God, then we are part of God. God is the Creator and we are all here to create. We live in a Universe of infinite possibilities described by Deepak Chopra as “pure potentiality”. Quantum Physics shows us that particles do not actually exist as particles until they are measured or observed. Quite simply, a wave does not collapse into concrete reality until we pay attention to it. Prior to this collapse, it simply exists as a wave of infinite possibilities. This means that everything we are, have and experience, we created… It also means that we can create whatever we desire… We operate in a world of limitless possibility; it is our intention and attention that create our reality. What does this mean? You have to intend something for it to come into existence. If you do not intend to get out of bed in the morning, then you will remain in bed – you have to clearly intend what you desire to manifest.
You must also apply attention to your desire. For my apartment, I paid attention by purchasing a scrap book and cutting out images. The Law of Attraction is most effective when we play like children. I played by cutting out pictures, having fun with the process and not taking it too seriously. If you take something too seriously, you are operating from a presumption of lack, i.e. you are overly dependent upon the outcome and then create negative energy around your manifestation. We are energetic magnets – our thoughts and feelings attract like energy. As Bob Procter says, your thoughts literally become things!
A very good friend of mine uses the Law of Attraction without any knowledge of it – she gave me the perfect example of detachment without referring to it as such. Sarah explained to me that when she truly desires something, she takes action and then pursues an alternative. This always leads to the manifestation of her principle desire and not the second option. Why? Because by initiating an alternative, she is demonstrating detachment. This detachment shows the Universe that she lives in a state of abundance and does not desperately require the manifestation. As the genie says “your wish is my command” and you literally can have anything and everything that you desire. However, if you manifest with doubt or attachment, you are sending the Universe a signal of lack and that is exactly what the Universe will supply. The Universe does not distinguish – it simply picks up on your focus and delivers. So, be specific and be positive! Do not doubt – we operate in a naturally abundant Universe!
The elimination of unconscious blocks is also crucial. We carry around so much negative baggage created by inaccurate teachings from others and the education system. In order to truly unleash the power of manifestation, you need to explore and eliminate negative and inaccurate programming within your subconscious mind – for example, rubbish such as “money doesn’t grow on trees” etc. False beliefs are hardwired into our brains – we have to work to eliminate them because we feed off our subconscious beliefs. This positive reprogramming can be achieved through techniques such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), hypnotherapy, literature, meditation and the chanting of mantras.
In order to fully deploy the Law of Attraction, accept that our predominant thoughts and behaviours shoot out into the Universe and create our reality. Scientists state that we have as many as 60,000 thoughts per day, so make sure that they are positive and focussed on your true desires. The vast ocean of consciousness is always listening…
Make sure that what you desire comes from a source of love for yourself and all others. Truly desire your dreams for the good of all concerned. The Universe will find the most effective route to deliver, but remain open-minded because it may surprise you with the creativity of its solution. Manifest knowing that whatever you desire is already yours because God is everything. As part of God, you already have and are everything – it is simply a question of manifesting what is already yours into your current reality. So, act as if it is yours and the Universe will comply. Visualize your dream and make it real – our minds do not distinguish between our predominant thoughts and current reality. Show gratitude for all that you have and everything that you desire because it is already yours!
I encourage clients to start using the Law of Attraction through experimentation and it always works! One of my clients called me recently to say that she decided to manifest a very rare book. One week later a friend offered her the book as a gift even though they had never even spoken of it!
We are meant to live lives of abundance – an abundance of love, health, wealth and happiness. Nature is perfectly in tune with the Universe and is naturally abundant. You do not have to push the grass up from the soil; it simply happens as a matter of course – it is effortless and never fails.
Get started and manifest your dreams into your reality!
