Setting Your Goals , The Law of Attraction Part II


There’s nothing like hearing the deep, powerful, sensuous voice of a Rocker . It pulls you fast out of inertia, switches on all the sleepy electrical nerve endings in your brain(especially on a lazy weekend morning), and makes you wanna write till you drop. Today it’s Incubus – Black Heart Inertia and that’s gonna keep running in the background on loop untill I get my writing done 🙂 . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1e4nIxSVUk

In last week’s post, we talked about some of the basics of the Law of Attraction and some key principles to using the Law effectively. Today, in Part II of the series, we will be looking at delving a little more deeply into the magical art of materialising all the things you’ve always been wanting to have. Plenty of good stuff on the way  🙂

Now then. Whenever you walk into a store with the aim of making a purchase, you know exactly what you’re looking for right?. You don’t draw a blank when the sale guy/girl asks you what you want. You definitely have a hazy idea of what you’re looking for at the very least.

It’s like that with the Law of Attraction too. Are you clear about what you want or you unsure? There is no way you’re getting what you want, if you’re not clear about what it is you’re looking for to begin with. It’s a bit like when you say you need a car . That’s fine in itself as an objective, but what type of car – color, make, design, convertible.  You also say you need a man. That’s great too. But what type of man – caring , affectionate, best friend, romantic, black hair, sky blue eyes. You get the drift. The more specific you are , the better.  Rather than just saying “I need a new house”, go for something along the lines of “I need a 2 floor level house ,3 bedrooms with attached bathrooms, fully furnished, close to the city but within easy reach of the sea. It should be brand new, freshly painted walls, spatious and well lit. I should feel great when I walk into the house each and every time. Feels just like home”.

The interesting thing about the Law of Attraction is that for most people it’s not instantaneous manifestation. It takes a little bit of time to get the object in the rear view mirror. And that’s OK too. You have that time to tweak , think & modify in the meantime.  Also, it’s not the end of the world when you get what you want, and you’ve decided it needs some perfecting. Keep tweaking your thoughts until you’re more clear about your end result.  The most important thing in using the Law of Attraction effectively is having a very clear and specific objective of what you’re trying to achieve.

Also, let’s remember ! There is no limit to what you can achieve in the Universe or in this lifetime. Don’t be afraid to dream bigger and set higher goals than you’ve ever done before. The Universe is abundant and there is a limitless supply of everything you could ever want. The only limits that exist are those that are self imposed, the limits that you create for yourself.

So this week , let’s take some out to jot down what our specific goals for the manifestation process are .  Hold the thoughts in your mind, and stay tuned, because next week we’re going to look at fine tuning our manifestation process. W’e’ve only just begun! 🙂

In Search of Love


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.


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.
