When you first hear about manifesting or the Law of Attraction you think “cool, I just have to visualize living in a mansion, driving a Benz, owning a jet and marrying a model etc”. and then just sit back and wait on it all to show up.
But it doesn’t work quite like that!
Here’s why-- every thought is creative - not just the good ones!
If you visualize the life of your dreams for just 60 seconds you begin to manifest it. This is totally true. "Well", you may say, "I have imagined living my dream life for a lot longer than 60 seconds. In fact, I have dreamt about it all my life sometimes spending hours lost in my fantasy and it still hasn't come true". And I ask them, how much time did you spend feeling and focusing on the lack of having these things? Remember, Every Thought Is Creative!
Spending time visualizing your ideal life is great but do you maintain those thoughts throughout the rest of your day. Or, do you go around complaining about how bad things are?
My guess is, if you don't have the life of your dreams, then you do the second one! These negative thoughts are also creative and are much more abundant in the majority of people. If the thoughts are backed with high emotion then they manifest even faster! You literally cancel out the good work you have done in your visualization. You are storing up great things for yourself but through your dominant negative thinking, you are keeping them away from you!
Now, don't get me wrong, visualization is an extremely powerful tool that can and will totally transform your life, but only when you use it in accordance with the Law. The Law of Attraction always works. It never sleeps and it never fails. It is an unbending Universal Principle. Every thought is creative. Every single one. Therefore you need to change your dominant mental patterns before you can see any real tangible results from consciously trying to use this law.
So how do we do that?
By changing your focus. You must change the way you view your world. See the world as a nasty, unforgiving, greedy, violent place and that is what you will attract more of. Begin to look for the beauty that is around you. Look for the abundance even if you are not fully experiencing it in your own life right now. Look for the things you want. Try to notice all the people who are currently enjoying the life you want to live and rejoice in their good fortune.
So how do we do that?
Simple! You get into a place of gratitude for what you already have.
What you focus on you get more of and what you place your attention on expands! By being grateful for what is in your life at the moment you put our attention on what you like and you get more of it. By feeling good about areas of your life that are working you are sending out very positive thoughts that the Law of Attraction immediately begins to manifest. What you focus on you get more of and what you place your attention on expands!!!
Are you starting to see the power of gratitude and how it can work wonders?
If, on the other hand, you allow your attention and focus to center around the things that are not working in your life then they will expand and you will get more of what you don't want. Think about this seriously. Give it some real thought. Can you identify areas in your life where this has happened or is continuing to happen now? The sayings in our everyday language sum up this Universal Law, "it never rains but it pours", "when something goes wrong, everything goes wrong", "Murphy's law at work again" etc.
If you find yourself getting jealous over another person's good fortune then you are actually affirming that you don't have what they do and focusing your attention on your own lack! However, by having gratitude for what you do have and celebrating another's good fortune you are actually focusing your attention on what you do want and ..... What you focus on you get more of and what you place your attention on expands!
So be grateful for what you do have. Be happy for another person's success. Show gratitude all the time and your focus will be on the positive and your attention will be placed on what you want. Your attitude will change when your attention is squarely placed on the things in life that you want and you do this through gratitude. So to keep you on track and in an attitude of gratitude always remember these two aspects of the law.
If a thought is maintained for just 60 seconds the Law of Attraction immediately begins to manifest it. What you focus on you get more of and what your attention rests on expands!
