For 25 years I have been fascinated(obsessed perhaps!) by how The Law of Attraction works in our lives, how our thoughts create our reality and how, by making the choice to change our thoughts, we can create new and different things in our own worlds! It is incredibly empowering and it absolutely works, regardless whether you believe in it or not! It’s very much like gravity that way. I firmly believe(KNOW) that everything is possible! We are all vibrational beings and emit a ‘frequency’ which is determined by our feelings…which are created by our thoughts. Lest you think this is whoo whoo stuff, think again! It’s science baby, Quantum Physics, and it’s extraordinary!
The Law of Attraction states that exactly what we put out into the world comes back to us, exactly. In other words, what we focus on expands. So the question is, “What are we focused on most of the day?” Believe it or not, 98% of the time we are focused on our DON’T WANTS! Hmmmm….so does this mean that we’re likely getting more of what we DON’T WANT? You bet it does.
If you’d like to see more of the things you DO WANT flowing into your life with greater ease and joy, then I offer you a simple but powerful exercise to getting started.
- Alone or with your family(great family activity!), take a piece of paper, draw a line down the middle and make two columns.
- Write down all your DON’T WANTS(they come easily…don’t have enough time, money, don’t exercise enough, not healthy enough etc)
- Next, write down all your DO WANTS. (abundant health, money, fitness, joy, peace, new job, new home, new car, new friends, and vacations….whatever you really want!)
- Post your DO WANTS all around your house and read them often…notice how you FEEL when you are focused on your DO WANTS vs. your DON’T WANTS. Do you notice a difference? Undoubtedly you do. When we focus on our DO WANTS, we ‘vibrate’ and thus, attract, differently. Many people say they feel more open, light, and good, vs. feeling tired, drained and overwhelmed when we focus on our DON’T WANTS!
The biggest part of this exercise is becoming astute at noticing how you are feeling. We actually are hard wired with our very own GPS system called our Internal Guidance System, aka, our feelings!
Habits take some time to change, and this does take practice, but when you decide to make this shift in your focus, you will be amazed by the results that will show up. They can’t help but show up…because what we put out, we get back, every single time!
The book that began it all for me on this subject is: Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting by Lynn Grabhorn
