Fine Tuning Your Manifestation,The Law of Attraction Part IV

Standard

Over the past few weeks we looked at some pointers for successfully mastering the Law of Attraction. This week we’ll be looking at some additional tools, to help you fine tune the manifestation process and clear some more rubble from your path to success 🙂

Successful manifestation relies on many factors, chief amongst them the mastery of your thoughts. Mastering your thoughts simply means observing your thoughts and consciously being able to control them, so that you actually start thinking the way of a master manifestor. In theory atleast, this seems simple enough. But when you actually sit down to gain mastery of your mind you come to the realisation , as I did , that it can be a highly daunting task. For one thing, consider the fact that your mind processes a million thoughts a day. Most of us barely have time to focus on a single thought. When we’re running from one thing to another in our daily lives thinking about all the things we need to do or are doing, we don’t really focus on the more important things of realising what our thoughts actually are, and often how very fear or worry based they really are.

Meditation

Meditation as means of mastering your thoughts

A very useful tool to observe and gain control of your thoughts is meditation.  Now, meditation is not as really complicated or difficult as it sounds. A willingness to practice and consistency in application is the key to success. I meditate on the way to work in my company bus, because that’s the one time when I’m not distracted and have a good 30 minutes to myself. Aim for 5 minutes as a beginner, and then slowly work yourself up.  The idea is to come to a point where you are consistently aware of your thoughts so you can isolate and drop the thoughts that are negative and retrain yourself to think a positive way. Watch the thought, control and manipulate. With a consistent meditation practice, this process will slowly and surely find it’s way to your conscious thought process as well, so in your waking state whether at home or at work you will quickly change gears from negative to positive thinking.

Strategic visualisation is another important tool in the process of manifestation. As a process , effective visualisation is completely different from say plain imagination or fantasy. Take some time off daily,or even as often as you wish, to practice visualisation, ideally in a quiet spot where you can focus undisturbed. Take the image of one of things that you wish for and keep it’s image at the centre of your mind. For instance, let’s say you are looking for a soulmate. Look at the image of your soul mate in terms of what you would want to him to look like. See his face, the colour of his eyes, the hair , the smile. Start allowing the good feelings to flow as this image comes up. Visualise how good it feels having him around you now. Visualise the 2 of you together, talking , laughing, sharing intimacy, holding hands. Immerse yourself in the experience. After a few minutes or as long as it takes you to get to that good feeling, slowly open your eyes. You’d be surprised at how ecstatically happy you”ve become. This is the kind of strategic visualisation that you need to practice to attain your goals. Do this regularly and always, and as often as you can. And never let the feeling drop.

Another very important tool in successful manifestation is removing negativity from your life. As I’ve said before, and many

Thinking Positive thoughts.

times over, negativity whether it be thoughts or emotions blocks the flow of successful manifestation. Start learning to love and appreciate the things in your life. If you don’t like your job now, and you’re looking for better prospects, don’t think in terms of “oh how I hate my job”, think in terms of ” I really do love my job”. Learn to look at things as learning experiences and think in terms of gratefulness and appreciation. Love comes from a space of acceptance. Bring the higher vibrations of love into your life by constantly appreciating and being grateful for everything you have. Fear is the opposite of love. And it is the fear we are trying to eliminate in the manifestation process. Aim to make love the focus of your life.  Over a period of time, if you are diligent , you will notice changes in the way you look at things…you lose the need to struggle ..and the need to strive. Life becomes easy, simply because you love your life and everything in it.

The Law of Attraction is not complicated . All it requires as a conscious willingness to apply the concepts and putting in the necessary work to achieve success. There are many ways to overcome obstacles, and if your heart is in the right direction and your mind is focussed on getting to your goal, you will always find a way. Believe it for it is so.

Manifesting Your Heart’s Desires, The Law of Attraction Part I

Standard

I was talking to my baby sister the other day, and at some point in the Law of Attractionconversation we “ascended” into the topic of the Law of Attraction.  Now, here’s the deal.  My “baby” sister is 27 years old and lives in another country, far far away on the distant horizons of the Arabian Sea.  She was really interested in the subject, and the challenge now is to coach her on the basics of the Law of Attraction from across the miles.  It’s a bit like distant learning. And whilst I’m coaching her, I may as well pass on the golden nuggets of wisdom to my fellow bloggers….. killing 2 birds with 1 stone 🙂

So here goes…

If I were to tell you that everything in your life right now, is a direct result of all of your previous thoughts and emotions would that surprise you? And, knowing that, if i were to tell you, simply by shifting your thoughts and emotions in even the smallest of ways you can achieve the life of your dreams, would you be willing to lend a ear and listen further?

The Law of Attraction will work whether you choose to believe it or not. Indeed, it works even if you have no knowlegde of it at all. It’s one of the many incredible Laws of the Universe, that’s as old as time itself, used by Kings and foot soldiers, monks and yogis, dancers and preachers, indeed, every type of person imaginable. A lot of the principles of the Law of Attraction were lost with the passage of time, but the Law is now enjoying a resurgence in popularity with the increasing interest that people have in living more authentic and happier lives.

One of the key things to remember with the Law of Attraction, is that the Universe functions on the premise of Like Attracts Like.  What and how you are, is what you will attract into your life.  If you are constantly unhappy and miserable, negative and ungrateful, you will continue to attract events which resonate and support your negative thought processes and emotions. Conversely, by constantly keeping yourself positive and joyous , you will attract situations that create happiness and positivity. Like attracts Like.

Next , there needs to be willingness to unlearn everything you’ve learnt before to make positive and vibrant changes in your life. When we say “unlearn”, it simply means a willingness to let go of outdated thoughts , beliefs and processes that no longer serve you. It’s similar to drinking from a cup of old coffee. Would you add new coffee to the left over coffee? No way! You would clean out the contents of the cup and then pour in new fresh coffee. You wouldn’t drink it otherwise. It’s important to clean out your existing thought processes, before you can work from a brand new and fresh perspective.

thoughts-become-thingsBelieve that you have the power to recreate your life and live the best life that you can live. It does not matter what has gone before and what goes on now. Your life from this moment on, is yours to change and you have within you incredible power to make your life the best you can be. All the opportunities are staring at you right in the face, only you are not aware of them. A willingness and desire  to change is what drives and fuels the creation of a life of your dreams.

Stay tuned, and we will explore more of the Law of Attraction in my upcoming blog posts. 🙂 .

Namaste.

In Search of Love

Standard

The greatest feeling in the world is that of being loved.  We long for it and dream of it. Some of us yearn for it with an all encompassing passion reminiscent of the thirst for a drop of water in a hot barren desert with only sun and sand in sight for miles around.

Rumi, one of the world’s most revered mystical poets had something to say about love. He said “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

In other words, there are things that you think and do that stop you from receiving an abundance of love in your life. Awareness is the key to identifying and releasing these barriers that we carry in our hearts. So today, let’s look at these barriers within yourself that you have built against love and let go of them one by one.

Loving yourself

Loving yourself is a very important and crucial part of receiving love. If you do not love yourself, all the situations that you draw into your life will reflect the way you actually feel about yourself. In other words, if you constantly tell yourself you are ugly and that nobody loves you, guess what!, you will attract people and situations into your life that affirm these thoughts that you have about yourself, whether it’s the boyfriend who keeps picking on your looks or whether it’s you being the butt of jokes wherever you go.

Lesson Nbr 1: Make up your mind from this very moment that you are a beautiful, incredible being, deserving and worthy of love. Look at yourself in the mirror every morning , peer deeply into you eyes with immense love and compassion, and say to yourself “I am an incredibly beautiful person. I deserve the best that life has to give me. I am worthy and deserving of love. I am deeply loved and I am surrounded by love always” It may be difficult in the beginning , especially after a life time of self bashing thoughts, but persevere and slowly but surely you will start to see the changes in your life.

Barriers to receiving Love

If I were to tell you that right now your Soulmate is waiting for you just outside your door longing to see you , what would be your first reaction. What is the first thought that comes into you mind. No cheating, and you have 10 seconds to respond!

You’d be surprised at some of the answers people have to give to this question. “Oh I’m tooo fat. I need to lose 10 kilos” or “I’m not sure if this person is the one for me, let’s see” or ” So soon?.. I’m not ready!” etc. If your reaction was any of  these,  is it any surprise you have yet to find your Soulmate.

Think about it. “So soon?..I’m not ready yet”. In other words you expect your Soul mate to come into life in some future time, but you don’t expect it to happen now. You think this will happen some time later and you’re not ready for it if it comes into your life straightaway. If you constantly go through life with this expectation, would it be any surprise that your soulmate hasn’t arrived, when all you do is think that it’s something that’s going to happen in the future. Allow yourself to expect that your soulmate is available now and that you are happy and excited about his presence now. The more you think in terms of having you soulmate now, the more you will actually have him or her now.

Another example ” Oh.. I’m not skinny yet. I need to lose 10 kilos”. Accept yourself the way you are. Find the joy and beauty of who you are in this moment. Make a plan to lose your weight, but affirm in this moment and forever more that you are worthy of receiving your mate now, that your mate loves you the way you are now.

So Lesson Nbr 2: Look at the thoughts that you have in your mind that stop you from receiving love, and decide from now on , you will give those thoughts a positive slant with the expectation that you are already in receipt of love, and above all, incredibly worthy and deserving of it.

Gratefulness

We often bump into people that constantly carp about the things that are wrong in their life. They are cranky , irritable and miserable and drag everybody else down with them into their cesspool of negativity. Do not expect the Universe to reward you with the things you want if you are not grateful for what you already have.You will attract things into your life that are a reflection of what you believe. If you constantly go through life thinking, ” I hate my life”, your situation will continue to be the same. It is not going to get better when your soul mate arrives, when you have a new job or when you have a new house. You will still continue to find reasons to hate life. Instead of looking at life this way, think in terms of ” I love my life, I have everything I need.I am grateful and happy for all the things that are there in my world. Life is beautiful” When you think in this manner,  you will constantly be amazed . An attitude of gratefulness creates expectancy of good things to come and a joyfulness in things already received. The Universe will shower you with blessings that support your new found positive state of mind.

So Lesson Nbr 3: Thing in terms of gratefulness for all love that you are receiving now, and you will continue to receive more of the same in leaps and bounds.

It’s true that many of us have gone through an incredible amount of pain and trauma in our past relationships which makes us wonder whether we could ever be capable of giving or receiving love again. To this I say, Time is a great healer, but it is more important to learn to release your pent up feelings of pain and sadness to return to your natural state of joy . We cannnot go through the rest of our lives feeling hurt, bitter or angry. You deserve the best in life and you are incredibly deserving to receive all the wonderful things that life has to offer. Hang in there , it will get better.

In future pages and blog posts I will be looking at how to heal from past hurts in more detail. For now, know this.

Love surrounds you always. Align your thoughts towards positivity and the expectancy of great things to come, because The Universe is waiting on the outskirts to shower you with more blessings than you ever dreamed possible.

Much love.
