Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years there’s a really good chance you’ve been exposed to the Law of Attraction. While the concept is nothing new, the movie The Secret obviously brought it into the consciousness of the mainstream. As a teacher of the Law of Attraction for the past several years, I have noticed that while most people are interested in using the law to improve their lives, they need specific direction in terms of how to apply it into their lives. The intention of this series of articles is to teach you step-by-step, in simple and practical terms, exactly how to implement the Law of Attraction into your life so that you truly begin living a life full of love, happiness and abundance. All human beings are incredibly powerful and can create whatever reality they desire.
The attraction process as outlined here consists of 6 specific steps:
1.Feel good. This will be discussed in detail in this article.
2.Set forth your intention.
3.Take inspired action.
4.Release the how.
5.Be a YES to life.
6.Allow the intention to manifest.
Let’s begin with feeling good.
I honestly cannot think of anything more important than feeling good. Call me an optimist but I believe that if each person on the planet was focused on feeling good on a consistent basis most of the challenges we currently face as a society and as a planet would quickly be solved. People who feel good don’t hurt other people. People who feel good don’t wage wars. People who feel good are typically not selfish and self-serving. People who feel good are more likely to be guided by love versus fear. So on a global level, the more good feeling, happy, loving people roaming the planet, the better. On a personal level, the better you feel the more powerful you will be in terms of your ability to attract and manifest your desires.
Understanding the Law of Attraction is pretty simple. Consider that all manifestation begins with feelings. If you are feeling good you will attract what you want. If you are feeling bad you will attract what you do NOT want… period. Your state of being attracts everything to you.
You cannot attract wealth if you are feeling poor.
You cannot attract health if you are feeling sick.
You cannot attract love if you are feeling unworthy of it.
You cannot be happy if you are feeling undeserving of it.
You must see yourself as you want to BE and from that point of being, you will attract what you desire. So the key is to consciously choose to feel good and then just stay in the joy.
Unless you are one who just naturally feels good all the time (which makes you a very rare individual), there are some powerful tools you can use to cause you to consistently feel good. Let’s discuss three proven tools for you to consider:
When you consciously choose to live in a state of gratitude, you will automatically begin to feel good. It is not possible to think about the amazing things in your life and not feel good! By focusing on what is good, you will attract more good into your world. (Conversely, if you act like a victim and focus on what is bad, more bad will come flooding your way). It sounds so simple… because it is!
Try on this exercise for the next 30 days. Each morning, ideally as soon as you wake up, list out at least 10 things that you are grateful for. You can write the list down in a journal or on your computer, speak the list out loud, call a friend and share your list with them or scream it out loud on your morning walk. There is no wrong way to do this; the key is to just begin each day focused on what is working in your life. Focus on what you are grateful for. It does not matter how messed up you think your life might be, you still have plenty to be grateful for. The fact that you have the ability to read these words tells me you are doing okay. In fact, I’d bet there are millions of less fortunate people around the world who would change places with you in a second.
I have personally been doing this exercise every single day for over two years now. I type it up and e-mail it every day to my buddy Mike in Chicago and he sends me his in return. Why do it I do it? Because I know I have the option each morning to either be grateful for the new day or to whine and complain. And you know what? Gratitude feels a whole lot better than whining and complaining! Plus I understand the power of feeling good.
In fact, try it right now. List out 10 things you are grateful for. In case you need a little help to get started, consider things like: your body, your mind, your soul, your children, your spouse, your significant other, your lover, best friends, your home, your car, your pets, money in your bank account, your job, your business, your country, the weather, your mother-in-law, whatever…
Again, try it on for 30 days and just see what happens. Living in a state of gratitude is essential to successfully use the Law of Attraction.
I cannot stress enough the importance of meditation. Whether you meditate to simply calm your mind and feel a little more peace or if you do it to make conscious contact with your source and experience complete, utter bliss, meditation is an important tool when it comes to feeling good.
There are obviously many forms of meditation to consider. I personally practice something called Shakipat meditation. Shakti is the life force energy that beats your heart and sustains the universe. In this simple third-eye meditation technique, you connect with that energy and feel an amazing natural high.
I personally sit for approximately 1 hour each day and quite honestly it is hard to express in words how this has impacted my life. I feel a great sense of calm, peace, love and joy in my life. I feel connected to the world and everyone and everything in it. I feel grateful to simply be alive. Most importantly, in this conversation of the Law of Attraction, I feel good!!
Beyond the obvious health benefits of a good exercise routine, let’s be honest: exercising makes you feel good. Maybe not always while you are doing it, but when you are done you always feel better!
So if you are committed to feeling good each day, commit to some form of exercise each morning. You can walk, run, lift weights, do yoga, make love (that got your attention)… just do something each morning to get the blood pumping and create some energy. The more energy you have, the better you will feel. I recommend exercising outside if possible… breathe in the air… connect with nature… connect with the universe, God, or source (whatever name you give to the power that created this magnificent playground we get to play in).
While there are obviously many other tools you can utilize in your quest to feel good each day, I strongly advise you to incorporate these three into your routine. In fact, the best guidance I can offer is to create a powerful morning ritual (routine) which includes gratitude, meditation and exercise. Again, try it on for yourself and see how you feel.
My advice is to
. Live in a state of gratitude and you will undoubtedly attract to you all you desire and experience a joyous life. When you feel good, everything just flows.
