I have a question for you. Do you know what would happen to you if you stood on top of the Brooklyn Bridge and stepped off? Of course, you do…you would get very, very wet. You would fall squarely into the East River, right? Why? Because of gravity. Basically, the law of gravity says that what goes up must come down. And you don’t question it at all, do you? I mean you don’t go around jumping off of high buildings or bridges or anything like that…do you? Of course there are those of you renegades that jump out of airplanes or bungee jump or whatever. I have to say, I will never understand the desire to do that; however, even you fools know what is going to happen. You are coming back down to earth…hopefully with a fully functioning parachute or unbreakable bungee cord. Yikes.
So…if you have no problem believing in the law of gravity, you should have an equally easy time believing in the law of attraction. What the law of attraction, in its simplest form, means is that like attracts like. When you focus on things (good or bad) you attract more of the same into your life. Have you ever heard people say, “When it rains, it pours.”? Well, there you have it. Conversely, have you ever observed people that just seemed to do no wrong…they were on a roll as they say. Again, the law of attraction in action.
Going forward, I am going to assume you get it. I will not debate you on the issue any further; I just want to get right to it. Whatever you focus your thoughts and most importantly your feelings on is what you will attract into your life. Now, it is not going to fall into your lap effortlessly…I don’t think ;). What will happen is you will start to get little nudges or inspirations. These inspirations will lead you to the path of the outcome that you desire…every time!! You think it. You imagine how it feels to have it already. You become charged like a magnet to it. You act on the impulses that you receive and Voila!! That’s how it works.
Now, you have to start today consciously controlling your mind and your thoughts. I know it might sound exhausting; but I promise you it will become second nature to you. Any time you have an errant thought that is not in alignment with your desired outcome, shift your thinking. Suppose you find yourself worrying about paying the mortgage…stop…breathe…think about how cool it feels to own the house outright…no mortgage.
Okay, here’s the first thing to do. Write down the way your life will be when you achieve your greatest dreams. Write it in present tense. As Bob Proctor said in “The Secret” start with the words, “I am so happy and grateful, now that…” You need only be clear about the outcome. Write in detail how much money you will have, what kind of house you will live in, what kind of car you will drive, what kind of philanthropic interests you will contribute to, etc. Then, every morning and every night read it aloud to yourself. Don’t worry about being silly…it’s not! Then close your eyes and imagine the feeling of the achievement of what it is you want. Understand that you do not have to justify any of it to anyone. Your dream is what YOU want. And mark my words, every time you open your eyes after this visualization/meditation process, you will have an idea. Act on it. You may be inspired to write something or call someone or whatever, but do it. It is the universe showing you how to achieve what you just said you wanted. So, in the wonderfully wise words of Nike…Just do it!!
You know one of the most amazing examples of this law is The Wright Brothers. These two guys believed that you could fly a heavy plane in the air using a motor and it would take you anywhere you wanted to go. They built models, gliders and prototypes out the wazoo and guess what…they made it happen when few believed it was even possible. Now, we fly all over creation….effortlessly. Hell, we propel rockets into space. All of this started with just a little seed of an idea. Thoughts become things!!
PS The visionaries that talk about the Law of Attraction talk a lot about your vibration. In other words how you attract things based on your internal feelings. Try this exercise. Next time you have to go to the market or Target or wherever, go in feeling closed off (anxious or unhappy or worried) and observe how the people react to you. You will find they will not make eye contact with you. They seem to be almost repelled by you. Then imagine something that makes you feel happy…really happy. Then smile and enjoy the moment as you walk through the store and what you will find is that people will be drawn to you. They will smile at you and say hello. Make eye contact with as many people as you pass all the while feeling that inner light and you will understand how this vibrational energy works. Your internal emotions and feelings send out a vibration and that vibration attracts like people or situations. What you focus on and feel the strongest about is what the universe thinks you want more of and it will give it to you. Unfortunately, we often focus on the lack or the worry or the practical urgencies of life. I do it too; but, I am changing and we can do this together!
