Have you tried using The Law of Attraction and found it got you nothing? Or even worse, it sometimes brings you what you don't want?
This happens to so many people, including myself on many occasions.
If we take a look at the process, the basic rules of the Law of Attraction are:
These are very simple rules, and in fact very clear rules. So why does it not work for everyone?
If we go back to the very basics of how the Law of Attraction works, the world around us vibrates. Everything within our world vibrates, we vibrate, items vibrate.
Everything is created from energy.
So with the basic rules outlined above, we ask for what we want, putting it out there into the universe. This creates a vibration within us that matches whatever it is that we are asking for. Vibrations are attracted to each other (think tuning forks!), so you would attract what you are asking for to you.
Sounds very very simple. And it is simple..... but it's not always easy when you first try.
First you have to ask in a certain way. If you say for example 'I want a new car', the universe hears that you want a new car, this means you will keep wanting a new car. There are a few reasons for this.
1. you have to believe you already have the car to attract it. So if you are saying you want a new car then you are not believing you have it.
2. Another thing that can happen is you want a new car, the universe hears that you want a new car but sees that there are blocks or issues you need to get out of the way first. These could be not believing you are worthy of the new car for example, so therefore not being open to receiving the new car. This is the same as not believing you will attract the new car.
This is when things can appear to get worse and can get messy. This is the universe trying to draw your attention to what you need to change in order to build your belief.
So the universe shows you what beliefs you need to change first. It does this so that you can clear this belief and create a new belief like 'I am very worthy of everything good'.
So you have to see yourself in the car and give thanks and gratitude for the car, as if you already own it. As if it is already yours.
I AM...... the 2 most powerful words in our vocabulary.
Being in this high vibrational state, means you aren't thinking about lack, you don't feel guilt, worry, unworthiness, anger, disappointment and/or depression, which are all low vibrations.
It means you are feeling love, gratitude, joy, peace. If you are in this state then you don't have any issues you need to clear. The universe has heard your order and is working on it. The same way as if you ordered off the internet. You order it and then get on with other things.
So how do we get into this high vibration?
Again simple (but not always easy)
We do things that make us happy. We fill ourselves up.
When I manifested my house I didn't think too much about it. I put out my request and then most days I put on my favourite music (one that always lifts me and helps me feel incredibly grateful for the beauty around me) and I visualised my dream house. I imagined walking through each room. How it would look, how it would feel to live there (feelings are incredibly important to this process).
I did this for 3-5mins most days. I also believed in my heart that I would get a house like the one I was visualising (or an even better one), I put no pressure on time frames. I just visualised and listened to my music which helped me to hit that high vibrational state. I also started looking at houses online, visited a few, painted our house so it was ready to go onto the market, so I took some action
(hint* you will never win the lottery if you don't buy a lottery ticket!)
This is also a way of making space to receive.
The important thing was I didn't get impatient, I didn't start thinking this house is never going to show up. The only time I thought about it was when I was visualising or taking action.
Eventually our dream house came onto the market, we visited it, got an estate agent to set up things to sell our house, and we had sold ours (off market) and bought our new house within a week.
This is seriously how easy it can be!! Ask in the right way, act as if it is already yours, and keep any thoughts of what you are asking for positive. If you can't, then don't think about it at all and do happy things!
So yes, The Law of Attraction does work!! All you need is to understand more about how the universe operates to work with it properly.
The video below has the music on it that I listened to whilst visualising. It helped that my 3yr old (at the time) also loved to watch this so it was on a lot x
I woke up this morning feeling strangely very well, especially considering I was back at the osteopath yesterday. I do have pain, however, I feel ok with it.
I have a feeling of a new beginning today and curious if this is a personal thing or a global thing?
Anyway, I felt compelled to write a list of things I want to change in my life,
kind of an 'enough is enough' sort of thing.
The list was much larger than I thought it was going to be, lots of what came up were things that I have acknowledged before but still haven't resolved. On the plus side there were things that weren't on the list that used to be.
Progress! One step at a time!
So a few things that came up for me were:
-Worrying about money
-being in pain
-worrying what people think of me
-having a messy house (we are renovating just now - having said that I'm still a bit of a hoarder)
Now a few of these I am reading and I know they are not feeling as strong as they used to, but they are still there.
Changing your mindset is not going to happen over night, but I do believe if we can focus on the positive, it leaves less space for the negative.
Although these statements may seem very negative, its important to acknowledge them, then change them into a positive statement. If you follow the laws of the universe, you will know that it cannot distinguish between want and don't want. So we have to declare what we do want.
It's also good to understand that we don't need to be perfect, at least not perfect in the sense that we put too much pressure on ourselves to be a certain way, or beat ourselves up over silly 'flaws' that really don't matter. Only change the things that feel right to you, the things that you feel are holding you back.
My new list of personal priorities are:
I am printing this list out and popping it onto my board so I see it every day as a reminder.
What are you going to do today? I feel really strong after writing this list, it feels perfect to me. You will have your own issues to work through and come up with. This feels like a very positive step for me.
Have a fantastic friday!
I found out something totally and utterly fascinating this morning (well fascinating to me anyway!), and maybe you will find it interesting too.
It's the Psoas Muscle (pronounced so-as) in our bodies, also known as the
'Muscle of the Soul'.
These are the large core muscles that run from our either side of our spine, around and through the pelvis to the front of our thighs, and.......... it is particularly sensitive to our emotions.
You know how sometimes when we are upset, or stressed, we automatically want to go into the foetal position? This is because these muscles contract under stress, so pull us into this position which is why we find comfort from doing this.
You know how when you are not good with heights and you take a look over a cliff side, you feel this wrench in your gut? That is your Psoas muscles contracting under stress.
Or when we get that sinking feeling that something is not right? Again we feel it in our gut, that is the Psoas muscle,
The Muscle of the Soul.
I have very personal reasons for finding this incredibly interesting and exciting. Ever since my last pregnancy (7yrs ago) I have had a problem with my pelvis and hips. During this pregnancy I had SPD, which basically means my pubic bone split. Generally it is just that the ligaments become really loose and there is movement within the pelvis that causes pain. Normally once the baby is born and hormones return to normal all settles and the pain goes away.
Sadly for me 7 years later I still have it. I have learned to manage the pain through knowing my physical limits. I can't do sports, I can't walk too far, I have a weak back. So I have habitually learned to automatically protect my hips and pelvis this whole time.
I started to see an osteopath last week, as I really have decided enough is enough. I'd tried the Dr's but they just kept saying nothing was wrong. By this stage I had also worked out that stress seemed to trigger flare ups as well.
Well yes, I'm sure you have guessed it by now but the Osteopath said my Psoas Muscle is in severe contraction. More so on the right side, so this also means my pelvis is twisted too.
I am finding the treatment it's self not too bad pain wise, but I am in a lot of pain for a few days afterwards. In fact as I write this I am 4 days since my last treatment and I am still in pain from it. I am due to go back in 2 days.
This information, however, shows me I am on the right track. It gives me the strength to carry on with the treatment.
Because I know it will work!
It all makes so much sense to me and ties in with what my Osteopath has said, and my friend who did KCR on me said too.
So for me I will continue with the treatment and the exercises I am given. But on going, I want to keep this muscle healthy. Less stress is a major factor, yoga, pilates, dance etc are all supposed to be very good for helping too.
There is a lot of information online about this as well as books on amazon. I know that I will be looking into it further x
***This is of course all just my opinion from information I have collected, so please do your own research into this subject
How many times have you felt totally stuck, like you are living a life that isn't true to you?
Signs of this can include, depression, anxiety, frustration!!
I now I have felt like this many many times, and then guilt kicks in and I feel I should just be grateful for what I have.
I am incredibly grateful for what I have, but to feel fulfilled we usually need to grow, and continue to grow.
But how can we grow when we don't even know ourselves what we actually want?
This is an area I have really struggled with myself. I have spent pretty much a year exploring what I want and where I want to be. I have also realised that this changes.......... often.
Over the last year I have tested many different hats, tried out different things that I think I may like.
I have felt the frustration of trying to find this 1 amazing thing that will be my purpose for the rest of my life so I can live the life of my dreams. Frustrated because I didn't know what my dream life even was! How can I possibly get to where I want to be when even I don't know where that is!
One thing that has been an incredible help for me gaining clarity is......
See how it works for you!
I can only say that I have had amazing realisations, break throughs and understandings of myself through journalling. It has helped me in incredible ways.
So go buy yourself a beautiful journal to write in.
Pour your heart and soul into it, open yourself up.
Don't edit your thoughts, just get them down on paper (electronic journalling doesn't work..... it most definitely has to be written by hand) don't ask me why as I don't know but I have tried both.
