The Law of Attraction is always working whether we’re aware of it or not. Either you’re living be default or design.
Awareness and learning to use it to your advantage is the first step in changing just about any aspect of your life.
That’s great news, right?
So you’ve accepted this and you’re ready to start manifesting the life of your dreams. But where do you start?
How do you get the ball rolling when you’ve never done it before?
My best advice is sharing some of my daily practices with you. I developed these practices, not from just one resource, but I’ve chosen the techniques from many that seem to work best for me. So you be the judge of what you will do and what you won’t from my starter guide below:
1. Define and Clarify Your Goal
One reason so many people don’t accomplish goals is that they aren’t specific enough. Manifestation works the same way.
By just saying, “I want to make more money” will not be effective, but saying “I want to earn $10,000 per month by July 1, 2018” will.
A couple of ways to really boost your manifesting power is to write out what it would feel like to have already accomplished your goal and read it often. But not just read it, close your eyes and envision that success scenario in as much detail as you can.
Creating a vision board can be helpful if you really feel inspired by it AND take action towards what you want.
2. Set Daily Intentions
After reading The Miracle Morning in late 2012, I made it a priority to wake up really early. I get up around 4:15a 7 days a week. If you haven’t read that book, I highly recommend it.
So since December of 2012, I’ve been doing this and I’ve found this to be the most creative and productive time in my day. But I plan my day the night before so I can hit the ground running when I wake up.
A great day starts with intention. By deciding the most important things I need to do or setting a daily theme and then visualizing myself progressing through the day to the best of my ability and accomplishing my tasks with ease. I picture my interactions with others and the activities I think I’ll be doing. I envision my perfect day. I envision myself happy and content.
3. Ask for Assistance from Your Higher Power
Another technique that can be used right away in the morning is to ask for universal assistance in creating your perfect day. You can do this by writing down requests, which could be something like, “please allow my flight to arrive safely” or “please help me be my best self and truly serve others.”
4. Recite Positive Affirmations
You can also write out some flash cards or separate pieces of paper and put a carefully crafted affirmation on each one. I go through my flashcards couple times a day and recite each affirmation over and over for 5 minutes. An effective affirmation should only use positive wording and should always be in the present tense. For example, don’t say, “I wish to be debt free.” Instead say, “I live an abundant lifestyle.”
5. Write in a Gratitude Journal
Keeping a gratitude journal is an excellent way to keep your vibrations high. I do this every night before I go to bed. I always list 5 things I was grateful for that day. It doesn’t have to be anything really huge, it could be as simple as “I’m grateful to have a roof over my head.” I also try not to ever do the same affirmation more than once (at least to the best of my memory). This leaves me with a positive, elevated mood as I go to sleep each day.
6. Visualize Yourself Conquering Your Goals
This is similar to setting your daily intentions, but different because it’s visualizing you achieving a specific goal. When you picture yourself already at your final destination, in great detail, with the people, place, and things you want around you, you’ll start to attract the tools and other resources you need to make that actual goal (and visualization) a reality. And to really be effective, don’t just think about accomplishing your goal, really FEEL it. When you imagine it with emotion, is when the real magic starts to happen.
7. Identify Negativity as it Comes Up
When you’re going about your day, negative things are bound to come up, it’s just what happens when we live in the real world. It’s how we deal with this negativity that really counts. When negative situations arise in my life, I take them head on and deal with them as swiftly and effectively as possible BUT I also imagine the opposite feeling or experience and put all my focus on that. So basically when negativity shows up, acknowledge it, deal with it as much as possible and then find and focus on the good. I know this can be hard, but you really can find something good in just about every situation you can think of.
- The biggest thing to remember when test driving any of the techniques above is to BE CONSISTENT. Keeping a consistent practice keeps your vibrations high and you should start to notice small changes in a relatively short amount of time. I can’t give you a timeline…it’s different for everyone. Inconsistent practices will bring you inconsistent results or no results at all.
That’s it! There’s my 7 Super Simple Techniques to Kickstart the Law of Attraction. Try them all…probably not all at the same time, start gradually, with one or two. Do some experimenting to see what gives you the most bang for your manifesting buck.
Did I miss any techniques you use? Or maybe you’ve tried a couple…if so, what were your results? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
