Simple Methods To Prepare Your Mind For The Law of Attraction

The science behind the law of attraction got a lot more attention within the last couple of years. Men and women begin to understand more and more that they themselves are responsible for the things taking place in their lives, all because of movies like “The Secret”. There isn’t any absolute certainty the law of attraction work, regardless of the thousands of books written about the subject no one is 100% sure. The theory states that your thoughts are like a magnet which attracts everything it thinks about. Your thoughts, emotions and visions all function together to attract the things you feel, dream and think about. The better you research the law of attraction the better you will understand that this world outside is a reflection of your inside world.

This could be difficult to understand initially, specifically if you, like 99.99% of the world’s population, have been raised to respond to outside circumstances. Every person’s mind were conditioned since childhood about how the outside world doesn’t have any basic cause and it affects the inside world. We were all taught to think a certain way with our conscious mind; little do people realise that it’s actually their subconscious mind that have control of their lives. When studying the law of attraction techniques, always remember that reading is simply not enough and action is essential for long lasting change.

Research have revealed that your subconscious mind can handle 1000s of tasks simultaneously but your conscious mind can only handle one task at any given time. A teenager taking driving lessons can be used as an excellent example. A person who learns to drive for the first time can only focus on only changing gears, steering, stepping on the gas or braking at a time. You had to drive a car for hours before your subconscious mind took over several of the tasks which means you could do them naturally. In the same manner your subconscious picked up on how you thought, felt and did things since childhood and these habits still rule your life right now. Being aware of what exactly is the cause of our current believes, we have the power to change our feelings, visions and thoughts for a much better life.

You know what the law of attraction means, but do you really understand the law of attraction? The origins of the law of attraction go more deeply into your subconscious than what you may think. You can’t basically just watch a film or read an ebook and think your life will change, you’ll want to take action each day to print the brand new believes into the subconscious. Start to do everything within your power to understand everything you can about the law of attraction, it’s that important. Listed below are 3 ways that can help you with understanding this subject better;

1. Books – Bits and pieces about the law of attraction can be found in lots of books, not one book has all of the answers for all people. The more you read the more it will start making sense. It’s like building a puzzle. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is most likely where you would want to start your reading. Genie Within by Harry W. Carpenter is yet another superb but less known book. Finding out how to take control of your subconscious mind can be like having your own personal genie.

2. Practise daily – You will need to train your mind daily to accept the ideas of the law of attraction. Start to see the things you do want in your life and look past the things you do not want. Take notice of positive thoughts and feelings and give no attention to negative or bad thoughts and feelings. You have to be consistent, all day, every day.

Follow Your Dreams

By Jessica Rector

I conducted two workshops at the PTA Leadership Summit in Dallas. After my first session, an attendee came up and talked to me. She said she had a dream, she just didn’t know what it was.

She was entering a new phase in her life, in her early thirties, and just settling in after a divorce, and she wanted to know how to discover her dream…her passion. She didn’t know where to start.

So many of us find ourselves in that same situation. We don’t know where to start. Instead of asking questions, like my attendee, you quickly become overwhelmed and decide to give up. It’s so easy to do. With being pulled in so many directions, you don’t have the time, energy, or patience to take it slowly or one step at a time. You want it yesterday. But dreams don’t happen like that. They take time to discover and years to develop.

That same night, I was taking a little “me” time and watching America’s Got Talent. I love watching people’s dreams come true. It was emotional for me…the suspense built as the judges used their words wisely keeping you guessing if the contestants were advancing. I watched as they broke the news to the contestants. An older comedian, a 39-year-old female singer who says it’s her “last chance,” and an opera singer who just wanted to be accepted by others, all received good news. As each of them heard, “You’re going to New York City and Radio City Music Hall,” tears came to my eyes.

Maybe their dreams didn’t happen in the time or the way they planned, but life never does. Their dreams are coming true. Woo HOO! THEIR DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE!

The older comedian said, “Just because I’m 53 doesn’t mean I’ve given up on my dream.” No matter how old you are, you still want to turn your dream into reality. So don’t wait any longer. You’re not too old. You’re not too overweight. You’re not too busy. You’re not too ____________ (fill in the blank).

You are perfect just the way you are to start pursuing your dream. Maybe you don’t know the answers. Maybe you don’t know what questions to ask. So often when this happens, we throw in the towel and give up. We tell ourselves we aren’t worth it, it wouldn’t happen anyways, or it’s just too late. All of those things we tell ourselves are just not true. We want our dreams to happen. We can see them, taste them, and feel them. But we just don’t know the first step to take.

Just start. Start somewhere. Start anywhere. Start by asking some questions or doing research. Be patience and learn to take it slowly. You have all the time you need, but just start. You will eventually make your way to the answers. Don’t give up. You never know, maybe right around the corner your dreams will become your reality.
