ever wondered: "How does this 'Law of Attraction' really
work? Can I really attract only what I want?"
You Can! It requires you to make many conscious
choices. Most of the time it seems much easier to notice
what we don't like or want and to focus by complaining about
that. The ***trick*** is to become clear about what
DO you want and to keep your attention on THAT!
I'll share a personal story that will demonstrate how the
Law of Attraction works in every day life:
I am going to move to the west coast soon. Having lived on
the Canadian prairies for more than 30 years, the prospect
of returning to a warmer climate is bringing me much
I am keeping my attention on where I want to live. In fact,
I just visited the city I have my attention on, did a
whirlwind tour with a realtor and found the ideal area I
want to live in.
In the old days, I would be focused on (obsessed with) my
current situation and what I need to do to change the
"reality" of where I am right now. But according to the Law
of Attraction, placing my attention on what I do NOT want
would bring more of THAT into my life.
It is so much more fun to think about where I am wanting to
live. I took a walk along the ocean and discovered some
special stones which I brought back to Saskatchewan. These
stones are now arranged in a small bowl next to my computer
monitor where I can see them all day long. They provide a
good focal point for keeping my attention upon where I want
I have placed sea shells and starfish throughout my house as
reminders of the ocean--where I am wanting to live. There
are sea shells in the bathroom, along the bath tub and next
to the sink. In the kitchen, I arranged sea shells in a dish
and placed them on a counter top where I can't miss seeing
them. I've placed sea shells and a starfish IN my bed, so
that if I awaken during the night, I can reach for them and
remind myself of where I am wanting to be.
More and more I am daydreaming about my new location. While
I was physically there, I made many mental
pictures--pictures of myself shopping or having coffee at a
sidewalk cafe or entertaining friends in my new
condo--pictures of everyday life as I want to be living
At first, when I told people about my upcoming move, I felt
uncertain and tentative about my decision. That's normal. We
are only comfortable with what we know already...anything
new or unexperienced will feel strange--until the "new and
unexperienced" becomes so normal and real in our minds that
the Universe just HAS to give it to us.
In fact, that is all the Universe is waiting for--for you to
spend so much time living the life you want in your mind
that the ONLY thing left is to give you the life you are
In closing, bring to mind something that you are
desiring...close your eyes and picture yourself actually
enjoying what you are wanting. Engage all your
senses--pretend to smell it or taste it. What would it
physically feel like? That's the first step in deliberately
attracting what you REALLY want!
