Is the Law of Attraction Working

law of attraction

Dreaming of success yet it doesn’t seem to come?  Want to see your bank account grow but all that seems to arrive is bills?  Do you wish for something so hard but that wish never comes true?

Have you heard about the “law of attraction” and thought it is CRAZY?  The truth is that you can reframe a situation and attract wonderful things into your life.  Has my unexpected income arrived? It is on its way because I BELIEVE and I am ready to receive it.  Here are some reasons why the law of attraction may not be working for you:

1. Your request wasn’t clear and specific.

Just like you would order a meal in a restaurant – exactly like you want it, you need to ASK specifically for what you want.  If it is a dollar amount, write a paper check and hang it on the wall.  Want a specific goal in your business, be specific and ask for it.

2. You didn’t visualize it.

Clearly ask then visualise it. Imagine yourself having it. Feel the feelings having it would give you.  Use your imagination and all of your senses – sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. What will it feel like when you receive that unexpected income?  What will you do with it?  Feel the emotions that go with it – excitement, happiness contentment etc.

3. You didn’t believe it was really possible.

Be honest.  You asked for something that you didn’t believe was attainable?  Either you didn’t really believe in the law of attraction, or you didn’t believe that this specific thing you are asking for could  happen. Not believing blocks you from attracting whatever it is that you want. If you are struggling, start with something small that you can actually BELIEVE will happen. Once you get that, you can ask for more and get it. Work your way up as your faith builds.

4. You felt you were undeserving of it

This was a big one for me!  You are worthy! You are so deserving of everything you desire. The people that are successful, rich and happy – are not better than you. All of us are equally valuable, important and worthy. We all have our own unique gifts, talents, and necessary contribution to this world. It is why you were born.

5. You didn’t allow it, accept it or take action

Don’t try to force things to happen.  Don’t require it to happen the way you want it. Don’t keep checking on it. What you ask for could happen (and probably will happen) in a way that you never guessed it would. Trust that God (or the universe) knows more than you, knows everything actually, and has the power to make it happen.  Be willing to step out of your comfort zone.  Take action when you feel inspired. Do the things that make sense to get you closer to what you want.

6. You don’t believe you already have it

Believe it is yours.  Know that it is yours.   Imagine your name is written on it and it’s on its way to you. Own it. You are sure that when you order something it will be delivered, right? Even though you are not holding it in your hands, you know it exists, it’s yours and it will be here soon. This is the same thing.

7. It was something you didn’t really want, or part of you didn’t want it

Maybe you asked something that you really didn’t want but something that you thought you “should” want. Ask yourself what is the reason behind what you are asking for and what you really want.

So, who is ready for that promotion? Or new job? Or raise? Or whatever it is that you truly want?  Share it with us.  Speak it into the Universe so it will happen.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Manifesting Magnets

Make today count 5 2014  2014-05-17 12.26.58

It is Throwback Thursday!  This is from a Thirty One Leaders training held about 2 years ago.  Cindy Monroe joined us in the afternoon and NO, I didn’t cry this time when I met her.  What an AWESOME day!

I have been reading (and re-reading The Secret) as well as getting the daily teachings on my phone.  Do you use Manifesting Magnets?  I have become obsessed with them, in a good way.

It is all about ASKING, BELIEVING and RECEIVING all that the universe has for us.  In the past, I was great at asking but when it came to truly believing in my core, well that wasn’t happening.  Did I mention that I am not great at receiving BUT awesome at giving?  I know there are a lot more of you out there like that, right?

Some have not read The Secret, but I have heard them talk about manifesting magnets which is along the some line.  You are using your focus and energy to bring positive results.  Maybe you are looking for money, opportunity, love, or harmony.  Whatever your desire, you can manifest it (ask for it).  Do you think that I am crazy?  Are you saying “I keep asking for  XYZ and nothing happens”?  Remember it is a 3-step process not just 1!

I came across these  3 manifesting magnets:

1.      Put a gratitude alarm on your phone that says “What am I grateful for right now?”  (gratitude is the gateway to positive manifesting)

2      Decide every day to do 1 small thing for someone else  (you instantly align yourself with positive flow when you do)

3.     Choose an empowering image and use it as the wallpaper on your phone, tablet and computer (this creates a trigger to put you in a state of positive vibration and manifestation)

These 3 simple steps have power in them.  By building manifesting magnets into your life, you will open the flow to your desire.  By doing these simple things, you will also actually start to BELIEVE that your desire will come to fruition.

The last step is to be ready to receive the blessings.  A fierce cheerleader, Eryka Peskin, gave me a great tip that I have been practicing ALOT.  When someone pays me a compliment, I say “thank you, it is true”.  Does it sound cocky?  To some it might.  The reality is that is how I am learning to RECEIVE and BELIEVE at the same time.    I mean how many of you receive a compliment, say thank you BUT truly don’t believe what the person has said. OR you counter it with “thank you BUT”.  STOP!  You are manifesting negativity instead of positivity.  I know it isn’t easy.   Believe me it has taken me weeks.  It can happen though and when it does, you will be amazed at how you feel.

So, set the alarm on your phone (for random times if possible).  Do something nice for someone each day.  Post that picture of what you want where you will see it all of the time.  Don’t just post the picture and glance at it.  Take a moment to actually FEEL what it will be like to have that item.  For me, it is a check – some extra unexpected cash for National Conference and a short trip to see my daughter.  I believe that it will come.

I have the power in me to make it happen and so do you!  What is your desire?  Have you asked the Universe for it? Do you believe that it will come? And are you ready to receive it when it does?

I would love to hear your thoughts on manifesting magnets.  Have  ThirtyOne-derful day!
