Do you ever wonder: “Why does everything seem like such a struggle?”
It’s okay. You’re not alone. This is likely a case of you don’t know what you don’t know. But that’s all about to change.
There’s a force around us called the Law of Attraction. This universal law is at work in your life right now whether you realize it or not. The simplest way to explain the Law of Attraction is that you attract into your life whatever you put your attention, energy and focus on. Whether it’s negative or positive. The results we get are based on our vibration (or vibes) and feelings we give off.
There are only two kinds of vibrations: negative and positive. And you experience these vibes daily. Think about a time when you’ve walked into a room and felt the tension without anyone saying a word. Or when you met someone and instantly connected. You were influenced by their energy and they were influenced by yours.
When we have feelings of anger, frustration, anxiety, worry or fear, we send out a negative vibration to the universe. The job of the Law of Attraction is to check the vibration you’re sending out, match it and give you more of the same vibe. This also works when you send out positive feelings of love, joy, excitement and gratitude. The Law of Attraction is working 24/7, 365 days a year.
Every mood or feeling that we have is either in the negative or positive category. And we’re always experiencing moods and feelings. Most people are unaware of the energy or vibe they send out and then wonder why things seem so difficult.
Once I learned this valuable lesson, I became really aware of my thinking. I took a good hard look at my situation and began to figure out why I was not making as much money as I wanted to. I realized that I was focusing on all the things that I was lacking (money and professional success) and that’s why I ended up attracting a lot more of the same. Nothing!
The goal is to focus on all the good that already exists in your life. Think about what makes you feel excited, joyful, abundant and grateful. Once you are genuinely able to do that, you’ll start to attract a lot more of the same.
We all have bad days and it’s okay to feel sad, angry and emotional at times. This doesn’t mean you’re destined for a life a misery. The Law of Attraction is like a brand new mother. It can’t remember anything beyond 30 seconds ago. In fact, it doesn’t have a brain! It doesn’t decide if something is good or bad, right or wrong, or fair or unfair. It’s simply working off the vibes and energy you give off. It’s important to feel what you’re feeling. Embrace the situation and work through it — just don’t stay in this dark place for too long.
If you’re curious about the vibe you’re sending about your finances, career or love life, observe what you’re attracting. It’s a perfect match.
So how can you start attracting more of what you want and less of what you don’t?
Pay attention to the words you use, the thoughts you think and the vibe you send out. If you want to change your results, say positive words, think positive thoughts and you’ll send out positive vibes. Sounds easy, right?
It is… in theory. But it takes practice.
Words are everywhere. We think them, speak them, write them and read them. It’s important that we make sure we’re using them to our advantage. Most people say negative words like no, not, or don’t even when they think they’re being positive. For example, it’s safe to say that most people want more money. But when they think or talk about it they say: “I don’t want to live pay cheque to pay cheque.” By using the word don’t they’re focusing on the negative. Therefore, they’re going to continue to attract situations that keep them living in a state of not having enough or always wanting more.
Here’s a tip: Every time you catch yourself saying or thinking negative words like no, not or don’t, ask yourself “What do I want instead?” Then reframe to a positive answer.
Here’s how this works:
Negative thought: “I don’t want clients who can’t afford to pay me what I’m worth.”
What do I want instead?
Reframe: “I want clients who can afford to pay me in full and on time.”
Feel the difference?
Here’s an important note about the Law of Attraction. It’s only checking right now. It doesn’t matter what you were like in high school, how many jobs you got fired from, or all the past mistakes you think you’ve made. The Law of Attraction only cares about this moment.
You can apply the Law of Attraction to various areas in your life and business. Whether you want to attract more money, better health, stronger relationships, or more clients, the same rules apply. Become aware of your vibration by checking your feelings. Then change your words and thoughts by asking yourself: “What do I want instead?”
The universe is a friendly, loving and abundant place. Whatever you desire is as good as yours as long as you are clear about what you want, hold the vision with love and positivity, and take action on the opportunities that feel good for you.
