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.

When clients first come to me they usually have an issue they want to resolve or something they would like to create. They may want to:
- Move beyond feeling stuck
- Reconnect with who they really are
- Accomplish or create something
- Feel more peaceful and grounded
- Have support and guidance through a transition
- Shift their attitude or change their behavior
- Release the hold something in their past has on them
- And, so on….
And yet, when all said and done, they tell me there was something even more powerful and unexpected that came forward. The real gift was who they became through the process and how much they learned to love and value themselves.
Intentions and goals are not just about doing, they are about learning and growing and being. They evolve who we are.
So, I’m wondering – Who do you want to become?

I lost my oomph and I don’t know where it has gone. Can anyone relate?
Looking back, it probably started when I hurt my ankle and couldn’t exercise for a month. There are also the ongoing issues of several people I care about facing very serious medical issues. The last straw was traveling for the holidays and coming home with bronchitis that kept me low for 2 weeks.
So, now it is mid-January and I am feeling behind and oomph-less. What am I going to do?
Take Care of My Body: Exercising, eating healthy, and getting plenty of rest, are the basic building blocks of feeling good and restoring my energy levels.
Be Gentle with Myself: Feeling behind or pushing myself to do things are grounded in judgments of where I am. Instead, I am going to let my days gracefully unfold based on how I am feeling. The funny things is, when I take the heat off I often accomplish more.
Honor My Feelings: I shared with my book group about my friend in hospice and was surprised that they made such a big deal about it. I would have told you I was handling things gracefully, and I was, but I was not taking the time to connect with my feelings. I know that when I let my feelings process, I always feel lighter.
Spiritual Practice: I will be re-grounding in my daily practices. Meditation, journaling, prayer, and spending time in nature will be some of the tools I use.
Focus on the Positive: Talking or thinking about not having energy will only make it more true. My focus has been on resisting how I feel or making up stories to support it. Instead, I am choosing to shift my focus to how I want to feel and embracing it fully.
Engagement: Being with friends and communities that support me is incredibly healing. I already have several coffee and lunch dates on my calendar with fun people who I find inspiring. The other part of engagement is to step into my intentions and goals, even if it is in a very small way in the beginning. These small actions can re-connect me with what I want to do and remind me why it is so important to me.
What do you think of my plan to get my oomph back? Is there anything in it that might help you?

- Focus in on a shorter period of time. Big or long term goals can feel complicated. Make smaller goals for this day, week, or month.
- Stay centered in the present and take one step at a time. Keep asking yourself, “What is the next small thing I can do that will move me forward?”
- Remember that there is no such thing as perfection and nothing has to be forever. You can always change your mind.

Many people believe that we are souls put on this earth to experience life as a means to learning lessons and evolving spiritually.
You might hear them say that when something bad happens it is for the highest good, that you will learn and grow from it, or that there are hidden blessings involved.
What stands out for me is that you only hear people talk about these life lessons when things are going wrong. Is it not probable that we are also here to experience lessons about love, joy, and success?
Consider these life experiences:
- Learning to receive
- Being loved unconditionally
- Connecting with nature
- Living your passion
- Loving someone with all your heart
- The joy of uplifting others
- Experiencing the miracle of carrying and giving birth to a child
Just imagine how your energy will shift when your awareness expands to include the full range of life lessons, the good as well as those that might feel more challenging.
I would love to hear about some of the beautiful life lessons you have experienced. You can share by clicking on “Comments” under the title of this post.
One of my clients asked me to share this metaphor that I use in my coaching and workshops.
Many of us go through life as if we are walking backwards. Our focus is on the past, what went wrong, what could go wrong, and reasons we can’t succeed. We hold tightly onto anger, resentments, being right, control, sadness, and old stories. We immerse ourselves in the quicksand of darkness, negativity, and fear.
We can shift this by simply turning around.
When we choose to turn and face forward instead, the path before us is filled with light and possibilities. Our stories from the past are simply memories that no longer hold power over us. We can see the potential of our dreams and goals coming true and feel more positive and energized. We attract more love, peace, and happiness into our lives.
You can have this, too.
All you have to do is turn around.
Face the light – see the possibilities – and start walking forward…
Somewhere deep inside each of us is an inner child who wants to come out and play. As adults, we often lose sight of the sense of joy and wonderment that we felt when we were young. Life becomes busy and filled with commitments and sometimes we forget to have fun.
What was it for you? Did you love finger painting, hula hooping, swinging on swings? Or, did you have the most fun when you were at carnivals, swimming, or dancing?
Don’t deny yourself any longer. Make a play date with your inner child and go have some fun. You can even invite a friend and their inner child to join you.
It’s time to play!!!
I would love to hear how you bring out the kid in you. You can share in the comments section of this blog.
