The law of attraction made easy
Not too long ago, I finished reading a book that completely changed my life.
In fact, it inspired me to create a special page on my website (which you can check out here) where I plan to maintain a list of personal development books that I highly recommend.
Right now, there are 7 titles listed.
I invite you to check out the page and read my brief summaries of each book. To make it easier for you, I’ve also included the Amazon links for each title should you want to purchase a copy.
The first book listed is the one today’s blog is about. It’s called The Law of Attraction by Michael J. Losier.
When I first started reading this book, it came across as pretty simplistic. It was almost as if I was reading the basics of the law of attraction. For that reason, I almost decided to stop reading it altogether, since I was thinking things like ‘I already know that’.
(A lesson here: even if you think you already know something, there’s always something to learn…as I soon discovered.)
Something told me to just keep reading and to commit to the book’s exercises, so I did.
Soon enough, I was completely engrossed and finished the book in one day.
That’s when the magic started to happen.
Within hours of finishing the book’s first exercise, I manifested a client who wanted to book $5,000 worth of writing services…her email came seemingly out of the blue! Days later, I closed a $2,000 contract with another new client. And that same day, I also received news in the mail about settlement money I could potentially be entitled to.
This all happened within 72 hours!!!
Coincidence? I think not. You see, the book guides you in attracting whatever you want, whether it’s a job, a relationship, a different life, or a better financial situation. I had been doing the exercises with the intention of attracting a financial increase – and that’s just what happened!
So needless to say, I’m a firm believer in this book’s methods, and I sincerely hope you grab a copy from Amazon from the above links or even just check the book out from your local library (which is what I did).
One of the biggest concepts in the book is this: focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want.
I know, I know. It seems so simple, right?
But how many times do we catch ourselves focusing on the wrong things?
I don’t want to live in this neighborhood. I hate this job. I’m tired of living paycheck to paycheck. I don’t want to be in debt anymore. I’m not happy with my life.
We need to stop giving so much attention and energy to what we don’t want. Instead, we should use what we don’t want to get clear on what we do want.
In the book, this is called gaining clarity through contrast.
And it only takes a few minutes.
In fact, here’s a free worksheet that you can print out to complete the exercise.
Basically what you’re going to do is pick an area of your life where you’d like to see change. Maybe it’s in your finances. Maybe it’s in your relationships. Maybe it’s in your career. You get the idea. Simply select one area and put it at the top of your worksheet.
Then, in the left column, you’re going to list out everything you don’t currently like about that area in your life. Here’s an example of a list made for a career.
The final step is this: for each item in your list, you’re going to write down its complete opposite in the right column by asking ‘So what do I want instead?’
If you look at the example above, the first item in the left column is ‘not enough money’. So right across from it in the second column, you might write something like ‘more than enough money’. Do this for every item on your list.
Once you’ve finished, you’ll have better clarity on what it is you want in that area of your life.
This clarity will help you write something called your desire statement.
The point of this is to raise your vibration and get you in a state of excitement and anticipation, which makes it easier for you to attract good things into your life.
Your desire statement is ideally something you’d read at the beginning of each day (which is what I do), or even more than once a day if you’d like. As you read it, allow yourself to feel excited and grateful that your ideal life/relationships/job/home/etc. is coming into fruition.
Here’s a blank worksheet that will help you create your own desire statement. Be sure to use the wording in red that appears in the example (i.e. I love knowing…, it excites me that… <- these phrases will help to build up your excitement).
So that’s basically all I did! And like I said, it wasn’t long before amazing things began to happen. In a follow-up blog, I provide some further tips to help you manifest what you want. Until then, have fun with these exercises and feel free to send any success stories my way! 🙂
