2) Open to the mystery of life. You have no idea when or where that special person could walk into your life. He or she could be someone you already know or met in the past. They could be someone you’ll be meeting on your next business trip or vacation. They could also be your next date’s brother or sister! Your next Facebook friend or Twitter follower. They could be someone you’ll be meeting at a coffee shop or at the train station while you wait for the next train. The key here is to surrender all pre-conceived ideas and drop all your expectations of how, and with whom it is to happen and continue to focus on ‘what’ you want by being fully available and present in each and every moment. Don’t worry about the how! Say ‘Yes’ to your soulmate, and open to the mystery of life!
If you want something to happen, such as you want a bike, don't just say I want that bike, believe you are going to get that bike. Instead of telling yourself you want the bike, envision yourself riding that bike. It doesn't matter whether or not you know when you're going to receive it, just believe you're going to get it and have no doubts about it. If you have any doubts, quickly change your thought pattern to the positive and focus on receiving or having what you want.
I got a distressed call from a client some days back. Her friend had had a session with a kinesiologist, and the kinesiologist had removed an “entity” from her energy field. “My friend’s a mess,” my client told me. “The session was five days ago, but she’s still sick, shaky, and out of it. The experience was really scary. My friend felt like she was being pushed out of her body, and the kinesiologist was thrown across the room.”
Imagine for a moment that it’s a beautiful winter morning and there’s fresh, pristine snow on the ground. You walk up to a hill with your sled, and slide down and take your first trip down to the bottom of the hill. This first time, your course was pretty random, right? Then, you walk back up to the top of the hill once more and you sled down again. Okay, the odds are that you’re going to hit at least some of the grooves you created the first time that you went down.
Of course, you are responsible for pointing yourself in the direction of your dreams and working towards them. Effort is a big part of the equation, but it’s not all of it. You not only have to work hard for your money, you have to feel worthy of having it. How many of us doubt ourselves and our abilities to succeed? It’s not just about working harder, it’s about working smarter and being confident in yourself, your knowledge and your competency. Most of us miss this subtlety and end up in an arduous struggle against ourselves. But once you believe in yourself, you can create the life of your dreams by bending the “rules of the game” to your advantage.
The point is, you can go through any personal development program in history. Any of the great books “The Secret” and “Think and Grow Rich”. An Anthony Robbins program. The real masters all understand the same secret. It’s not just the tools and techniques that make a difference. It’s showing people how to open a channel to abundance that really counts.
I believe in the 1960s humanity was not ready for such a figure, in the sense that he would become an idol and people would not heed his message deeply and apply it to themselves, thus stunting their evolution. This is what happened with the original Jesus, whose message to humanity, “Whoever believes in me will also do the works that I am doing; He will do even greater things than these…” mostly fell upon deaf ears.
I'm 76. I became interested in mental phenomena when I was 13 and suffering from ADD. ADD didn't exist in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders back then, but I knew something was wrong. I subscribed to Popular Mechanics and Popular Science and was attracted to the various sciences. An article in one of those magazines described mental practices of Eastern religions and the unusual effects their practitioners could exhibit. I tried one of the techniques described and over the next several months my life changed. I weighed 89 lbs. My neck was so skinny my mother wondered how it could hold my head up. I was sickly and stayed in bed most of the day. I couldn't understand my schoolwork and was failing. After practicing this technique, I developed an eidetic memory, got great grades without much study, participated in the Science Fair, Soapbox Derby, and sports, and eventually grew to be 180 lbs. of solid muscle from weight lifting, surfing, and other activities. I had girl friends, went to parties, and had a life that scrawny kid of 13 could never have imagined. I didn't "try" to obtain these things. They simply happened. I was "led" from one thing to another. Opportunities "popped up" from nowhere. I accepted them as a normal part of growing up, but it wasn't normal. My few nerd friends never had them. That experience prompted me to dig deeper. I read all of Erickson's abstracts in college and studied the Akashic Records and other religious systems. I read Emerson, Atkinson, and everyone I could get my hands on. I studied quantum mechanics as far as I could take it over two years. I have books on consciousness and the mind that are over 140 years old. I stopped playing in this game while in the military. When I was discharged, I had nothing - a useless degree in Psychology, no job skills, no anything. I went back to the meditation techniques I learned in high school and my life changed again. I developed my own version of this book, one that worked specifically for me. There are some core elements to this book that I believe form the basis for all systems that purport to produce the effects of the Laws of Attraction. I disagree with the spiritual aspects. My system is mechanical: you do this, you get that. But they are similar enough that this book works. My studies in quantum mechanics only bolstered my confidence in the system. Whether you believe in the Copenhagen Interpretation or the many-worlds interpretation, or some superpositional entity outside of space/time that governs existence, this system works. It is EXTREMELY important to stop believing in things you CAN'T do. Read that again - and again. Belief is a killer. There are other aspects of this book that I support. I started with nothing in 1978 except for these concepts. I retired in 1986 and again in 1990 when a business I started as a hobby developed into a national company - totally free of any financial problems. I have no special abilities. I have no special education. I had no special training. I'm just a guy, but a guy who understands how this works and used my version of it. I don't do this anymore. I've wondered why and I think I have some limiting function that makes it unnecessary. There is nothing I want that I don't have except for one thing: my kids don't understand these concepts and have not interest in learning them. Too bad. The one thing I could never do with these concepts was to influence people directly. I have a theory about that, but enough for now. Why are you reading this? Think about it.
When Star Trek first came out, people were amazed that in this futuristic series people could step in front of a door and it would sense their presence and open automatically. In the actual filming of the original Star Trek series there was someone behind the panels opening and closing the doors on cue, but today we have the real thing and simply take this as normal and commonplace technology, which in fact was probably hidden from us since the days of Tesla until recently.
A lot of people get this wrong. You don’t want to attach yourself to the idea of the desired person. You have to trust that the universe is going to give you exactly what you want. So if you have a crush on or are in love with Adam, you cannot put Adam on this list. You have to go with the feeling. Think, “I want to feel secure, trusted, loved, etc.” What do you want in a relationship? Yes, you can put handsome, but try and stay away from the superficial things and trust everything will fall into place.
4) Making Room for Love. I want you to be honest and answer this question: As your life is today, do you have the time and energy for a deep, loving, healthy relationship? Do you have room in your life for your Soulmate? Perhaps, since you’ve been single you’ve been working late hours, and have very little free time to go out on dates. Or perhaps you’ve been accumulating a few “friends with benefits” who are keeping you sexually satisfied. Or perhaps you’re so focused on helping others that you leave no room for yourself.
Some of the most famous experts interviewed include Bob Proctor, Joe Vitale, John Assaraf, Jack Canfield and Marie Diamond. Some of them specialize in metaphysics or the quantum physics of the Law of Attraction, while others are leading authorities in psychology or personal development. All of the speakers discuss how desires can shape the world. Plus, they explore how to cultivate thought processes that support manifestation. The documentary became a global phenomenon. Viewers reported the many exciting ways in which positive thinking helped to improve their lives. Before the upcoming narrative film, this documentary was the Law of Attraction movie.
For example, if you’re looking to create more income or manifest a big payday, you need to plan around that expectation. Imagine when someone tells you that they’re coming to visit and they’ll be staying at your house in the guest bedroom. You plan your life in accordance with that expected outcome. You prepare the bedroom, clean the house, wash the sheets, and so on.
Eliminating physical clutter from your life is one of the fastest ways to increase the inflow of new positive energy. At the same time, you also want to create physical space for your soon-to-arrive beloved. Make sure to clear some space in your closet and keep the nightstand on your soulmate’s side of the bed empty so that when they arrive they can fill it with their own personal items. Remember the old saying “nature abhors a vacuum” – it applies here. Create space so the Universe can deliver your soulmate into a home that welcomes him or her. (even if you never plan to have your soulmate live with you in your space its essential to do this)
I was thinking the same. I've never heard a "professional" man of his age, speaking like such a catty little 15 year old girl. If you read all the comments you can see how he speaks down to/mocks every person who disagrees with him, while sarcastically throwing little digs in wherever he can. I came to this article looking for evidence to discredit the LOA. I just can't seem to take anything he wrote seriously because of his unprofessionalism. Very narrsassitic.
For each of the goals, ask yourself what is your level of belief that it would be manifested in the next 10 days. In case, your belief is not at level 8 or above, then scale down the size of the goal. For instance, if you are OK with an intensity of 8 to 9 with the goal that you shall be invited for a sandwich and coffee at Starbucks but you are at about 5 or 6 that you’ll receive an order of 5,000 dollars. In that case, check your level of belief at 4,000 dollars, if you find it to be 7 may be you still need to lower it to say 3,000 dollars.
One of the most surprising stories Jacob ever told me concerned a man they called the “Black Jesus.” He said this was highly classified and he was definitely “talking out of school” to tell me about it at all. Apparently in the 1960s a man appeared in Africa who had full ascended abilities. He could read people’s minds, materialize objects out of thin air, communicate telepathically, levitate himself, and teleport his body from one location to another. He was a spiritual teacher who emphasized love, peace, service to others, and forgiveness as the common core that unified all the great religions. The Cabal does not want anyone to develop these abilities, and if they find out that someone has them, they will hunt those people down and terminate them with prejudice. The Cabal made several attempts to assassinate this man. He consistently regenerated his body after each attack, no matter how lethal it seemed to be.
Emily has a competitive side, so I played to that by challenging her to find more coins than me, which boosted her motivation and desire to get good at it. She knows that technically it’s a fair game, and she even gave herself an advantage by walking in front of me, so she could be the first to spot new coins. And since she’s only 4’9″ inches tall, she’s a lot closer to the ground than I am.
You don’t have to go out on dates with people you’re not interested in, nor try to do something that goes against your own values. Notice what things or people you are consciously or unconsciously drawn to. You might be lead into amazing, rewarding, or at the very least a growing experience! Be willing to trust that inner voice and be open to the mystery that comes from there.
Yes, I am familiar with that phrase, although not sure how it applies to this situation. I am the source and you would like me to consider myself? I do not have an employer. Psychology Today provides a forum for articles and discussions. They do not hire me or pay me. They are not the source of this information. I take full responsibility for the content.
I love how the author explains the difference in mindsets between the rich and the wealthy. It seems overly simple and yet, this book makes a clear point to say, yes if you want to be wealthy, you need to change your attitude and mindset about money. I think most people often overlook the fact that there is a different philosophy and just think of rich and wealthy as the same. Wonderful book!!
If you want to manifest a fortune, always carry around 100 dollars or more in your wallet. Wherever you go, look at the stores around you, and tell yourself "If I wanted to, I could go in there right now and buy that!" but don't actually buy it. Actually spending 100 dollars is a lot less satisfying compared to spending 100 dollars 10, 20, 30 times mentally. This will attract a lot of money towards you if you can imagine what it'd be like.
In his 1910 The Science of Getting Rich Wallace D. Wattles espoused similar principles — that simply believing in the object of your desire and focusing on it will lead to that object or goal being realized on the material plane (Wattles claims in the Preface and later chapters of this book that his premise stems from the monistic Hindu view that God provides everything and can deliver what we focus on). The book also claims negative thinking will manifest negative results.
I really enjoy reading your posts and learning about opening up to deep and fulfilling love. After heart shattering loss over the course of the last two years I am now in the process of putting myself back together again. It’s still pretty messy but I really want to learn to love myself and be the best version of myself, for me and for my soulmate who I know is out there waiting for me to be ready for forever.
“Your fears of not making enough money are very strong,” I tell him. “They are so strong that you have adopted a poverty consciousness—a solid belief in your inability to create material wealth. Your childhood has set you up for this mentality, and it runs like a broken record in your head repeating the same situation over and over again. This is all the universe hears from you, so it obliges. Are you ready to stop the tape and write a new story?” I ask.
Focus on understanding your part in this overall process, rather than feeling guilty or ashamed. Recognizing how your fears have manifested in your life does not mean that the bad things in your life are your fault. It simply means that the Law of Attraction has responded to the signal you sent out. Just acknowledge that the system works and your new awareness will guide you. No need to shame yourself or even feel responsible.
As Harry says, manifesting doesn't have to be complicated. There are some really straightforward and pain-free ways to incorporate it into your everyday routine. One really great way to do it is to stay positive. "When you tell yourself that you are going to only have positive encounters with others every day, people will eventually start to see you in a different light," she says. But when you think negatively, "it is surprising what kinds of rejection will head your way." So try to remain positive as much as you can. After all, positive energy is infectious and can draw more people to you. It may get difficult sometimes, but the more you practice incorporating positive thoughts into your day, the better you will be at it.
I’ve been broke before – and I mean REALLY broke. My lowest point was when I just had around 70 cents (yes, cents) in my purse in order to feed my children for a couple of days. I remember walking around the supermarket wondering how the hell I would make it to the next welfare pay day. I purchased a no-name bag of plain pasta and the kids could eat it for dinner and lunch with some tomato sauce I had in the cupboard. The pain was so embarrassing that I struck a deal with the Universe that I would never allow myself to go there again.
Unfortunately, this author has an extremely superficial understanding of the LOA. While he may claim to have read all of the books, he clearly didn't understand them. He really isn't to blame as unfortunately many of the books written on the LOA are written by people that do not fully understand it themselves. The statement that positive thoughts always bring positive things is a faulty premise that is not at the basis of the LOA.
It’s time for you to push past those beliefs and gain clarity on what it is your heart desires. I invite you to write out exactly what you want in every single area of your life. Goal-setting is not what I am suggesting you do. That will come with time, but for now, picture the life of your dreams with no limits. Pretend that you had no limiting beliefs.
