If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and endeavor to live the life you have imagined, you will meet with unexpected success. –Henry David Thoreau
That quote from Thoreau about says it all, it succinctly states the law of attraction. Broken into steps the law of attraction looks like this:
1. Picture the thing you want, see it and make it real; involve as many of your senses as you can.
2. Maintain the vision practice it several times a day – holding it and being grateful that it is yours.
3. Get photographs that help you see the object of your vision and put them where you can see them often.
4. Become sensitive to your intuition and thoughts.
5. Live in expectation of success.
6. Act on ideas that come.
7. Always, always, always be grateful that the thing you seek is already yours.
Can you formulate a vision of what you are seeking? Most people have some vague notion of what they want that generally fades when they turn on their favorite TV show or resort to another distraction: soon the vision is fading, fading, gone. Can you keep the vision in the forefront of your thinking and make it part of your dominant thoughts?
Can you be thankful before you actually hold the things you seek to attract in your hands? This is related to and necessary for holding the vision in mind until it is real to you. It builds faith and will keep you engaged.
Will you act on the ideas that are generated by your vision or as Thoreau said, “endeavor to live the life you have imagined?” If you can do these things then you will meet with the “unexpected success.”
Is there evidence that this process, the law of attraction, has worked for anyone in a way that wasn’t just coincidence? Yes, there is: Conrad Hilton, in his biography, spoke of traveling around Texas, sometimes sleeping on park benches, with a picture of the Waldorf Astoria in his pocket. He looked at the picture often and saw the hotel as his. Two years later he was owner of an old hotel in Dallas but continued to see himself as owner of the famed Waldorf Astoria. Later he put The Waldorf into the Hilton portfolio. Can you believe that big? Can you be thankful that it is already yours just by seeing the picture of it? Can you continue to do it through a stock market crash as Hilton did? Hold fast to the vision and act as Conrad Hilton did and expect to meet with “unexpected success.” This is what the
is all about.
