The Law of Attraction is both interesting and exciting. The simple version is that we are all vibrating energy and whatever we put out into the world attracts similar energy. It is especially popular with people who want to use this law to manifest success in their lives or businesses.
The book and movie, “The Secret”, brought a lot of attention to the idea of attraction, but many people took it to mean that they could just sit on their couches and make their dreams come true. They failed to realize that the thought leaders in the book had also worked hard to get where they were at.
There are three elements to successfully using the Law of Attraction to manifest what you want in your life.
Be Impeccable with Your Thoughts and Words: What you think creates how you feel and the level of your energy. Every time you think of a limitation or doubt your dream, you make it more challenging to achieve. Instead, shift your negative thoughts to positive ones full of possibilities and gratitude.
Juice it Up: Connecting emotion to our thoughts supersizes their manifesting abilities. You can do this by focusing on why you want what you want and how it will feel to have it. Saturate yourself in the feeling of that end result and you will be more focused and drawn to making it happen.
Get Moving: When you take action you provide forward momentum and opportunities for the universe to give you feedback. Feedback may be a feeling that something is or isn’t right. It can also show up as synchronicity, things falling into place, or being blocked in some way. In order to know what to do next, you need to take the first step.
Don’t forget to comment and share your thoughts and experiences.

It’s always there on some level, lurking in the shadows or making a full frontal attack. Bad things happen. Tornados, hurricanes, divorce, people close to you get ill or die. It would be easy to become immobile with the sadness of it all, but that doesn’t serve anyone.
Here is what I have learned to do:
Check my perspective: I can see it all as tragic or I can trust that there are blessings too. I give myself permission not to understand and even if it feels yucky know that someone, maybe many, are growing from the experience. People support each other in tragedy, families come together when someone they love is dying, and from the ashes new dreams are born. It is not my place to decide what is good or bad, right or wrong, faith or love.
Do what I can: I read to my friend in hospice, support my clients through their challenges, and listen to a friend who just learned she has a life threatening condition. Volunteering and prayer are ways to help on a larger scale. There is always something I can do.
Focus on gratitude: I am a sensitive person and can easily take on the pain of others, but that does nothing to make things better. Instead, I acknowledge my feelings and let them come forward, but don’t let myself get stuck there. The way I do this is by recognizing the ways my life is blessed. When homes are destroyed by acts of nature I am thankful for the shelter I have and when my friend lost her mobility I was clear that my daily walks were a gift. The tragedies of others can bring into the light how lucky I am.
I am not saying that I have this down perfectly. I am human. What I can say is that this practice supports me and it gets easier each time. I wonder if it could support you, too.
