The Law of Attraction is a very popular subject for many people. This law states that a person can manifest their dreams into reality simply by daily visualizations of their chosen desires and complete faith that the universe will provide. A person simply decides what their desires are, spends some time every day imagining the desires have already come true, and have complete belief that their dreams will come true. If all this is done with utter belief that anything is possible, even the craziest of dreams, then results will inevitably occur. We live in a world of attraction and like attracts like, which is why the law of attraction and being open to the power of this law is extremely important for manifesting any dream imaginable. The first step in manifesting any desire is deciding what your desires are in great detail and with hopeful, positive expectation. Figuring out what you desire deep down in your heart is crucial. According to Jordan Lejuwaan, “you need to figure out what you want more than anything else, no matter how impossible the goal may sound right now” because the feeling that goes along with your desires must be strong enough to get you excited (highexistence.com). If you choose a desire that you think you really want but don’t feel a strong attachment to the desire when you do think about the desire coming true, then this desire isn’t something meant for you. You really need to take the time to take a comprehensive look into what you truly feel is important in your life to create happiness for you, nobody else.
Many people have allowed other people to dictate how they live their lives. Parents, friends and colleagues always seem to have an opinion on how you should be living your life and what your dreams and goals should be. However, if you follow what other people tell you to dream about, while the law of attraction might work simply through repetitive action; it will not bring you satisfaction in the end. According to Esther and Jerry Hicks’ book Ask and It is Given, Ch.17 “almost everyone seems to have an opinion about how you should behave” but if you choose to listen to them “it is not possible for you to stay on track between where you are and where you want to be if you are using those kinds of outside influences to guide you (abraham-hicks.com).
Therefore, choosing what feels right for you is vital to successful manifestations because it’s impossible for you to find happiness living someone else’s version of how your life should be. They are not you and you are not them so following your heart’s desires is important in order for you to stay focused on your true wants, not on what the world’s idea of you is. After you have carefully taken into account how you feel when you think of certain goals, decide “on three things to start off with: one small goal, one medium goal, and one crazy goal” (highexistence.com). Remember to pay attention to your emotions during this step because it is “your emotions [which] provide a similar guidance system for you, for their primary function is also to help you travel the distance from where you are to wherever you want to be”(abraham-hicks.com).
The next step requires choosing how you want to visualize your goals daily. Picking your preferred method of meditation, which you will want to stick to, is also crucial to successful manifestations. Don’t get sucked into common misconceptions of how you are supposed to meditate because it is you who will be the one to practice in this way daily. You want to choose something you will look forward to and enjoy doing. You want to pick any activity that is both “relaxing and as quiet as possible” (highexistence.com). During your visualizations, you also want to pay precise attention to how you feel while you are envisioning your dreams coming true. The greatest mistake you can make during visualizing your goals is feeling that visualizing is stupid and isn’t enough to make your dreams come true. According to Esther and Jerry Hicks, “ when you are in a state of joy, happiness, or appreciation, you are fully connected to the Stream of pure, positive Source Energy [and] anything or anyone that you are holding as your object of attention benefits from your attention.”
Creating your desired fantasies by imagining that they have already come true will produce good feelings within you, thus sending out positivity into the universe. By expecting great results during your visualizations, you will gain more and more excitement about your dreams becoming your reality. This will fully activate the law of attraction and the universe has to abide by this law, meaning you must get that which you are truly desiring and believing to come true. After you have chosen your method of visualization, a good way to begin your visualizations is by “building the fantasy” using all three goals, “until you have a series of events that you can visualize happening everyday” (highexistence.com). For example, if you wanted to lose weight, get a promotion, and become a billionaire then it’s best to combine all three goals into a fantastical story. An example of a story using those three goals could be you walking into your business, looking at how great you look in the mirror, and getting compliments on your way up to see the CEO who gives you a huge promotion. As you smile at your promotion and at everyone’s admiring looks, you realize that by the end of the year you will have made enough to call yourself a billionaire.
Therefore, if a person can imagine something and get so excited about envisioning that particular dream coming true, this dream is fully possible for them. The most important concept on the law of attraction is consistency because although any dream is completely possible according to the universe, daily visualizations are necessary to rev up any imaginable dream into reality. According to Jordan Lejuwaan, visualizations must be done “everyday for at least 30 minutes to an hour” in order to “engrain your ideal into your subconscious, which is the way in which you communicate with the Universal Mind” (highexistence.com). As you visualize daily, you will gain consistent excitement and the universe will feel this more and more. When you pay attention to your feelings, you will “also [feel] with each thought that you offer whether you are moving closer to or further from your desired outcome” (abraham-hicks.com). This is the main reason why it’s so important for you to pick dreams that create excitement for you when you think of the possibilities of them coming true. You must be like a child again in a sense who gets so excited about the things he or she really wants and shows disdain for the things the child doesn’t care for.
Lastly, you must expect that you will receive universal help to manifest all your desires. You must “expect signs and results” and take every opportunity that could help your desires come true. When you visualize effectively, you will begin to notice events in your life and meet people that can help you achieve your goals. Therefore, you want to “act upon serendipity, upon opportunity [and] be assertive” that the universe is working for your highest good. By feeling good about your dreams and acting upon the opportunities given to you, you will soon you’re your life becoming your ideal dream. According to Esther and Jerry Hicks, “there is nothing more important for anyone to understand than how the vibration they are offering is matching the vibrations of their desires, and the way you feel is your indicator of whether you are allowing your connection to Source or not.” This is why imagining your desires daily is crucial to manifestations coming true. Every day you imagine your desires are already a reality, without worrying about how the universe will make them come true, you gain positive expectation and this is put out into the universe for future positive creations. Therefore, the most important thing you can do is try and feel good before your visualizations, during your visualizations and after your visualizations in order to ensure your deepest wishes come forth into your reality. You have always had greatness within and by using the law of attraction effectively, you will have the power to manifest your greatness to the whole world!
Always remember “all your abundance, clarity, health, vitality and Well-Being- and all the things that you consider to be good, are dependent upon the way you are feeling right now and on the relationship that that feeling-vibration has to the vibration of who you really are and what you really desire” (abraham-hicks.com).
