CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY
The Law of Attraction is not a divine catalog that allows you to shop anytime with no investment. When you take something from the Universe, you owe something in return. Gratitude is definitely something that needs to be expressed and acted upon.
That’s just one element of a greater whole. To truly accept the Law of Attraction into your life, you acknowledge that you create your own reality. No more whining about what this person did to you or how you were cheated in that job.
Those are negatives. When you focus on the broken relationship or getting laid off from your job, you’re directing your energy toward negatives, not positives. It’s simple math – add all of the negative numbers you want and you still get a negative number!
You won’t create abundance out of negative energy. In fact, you block positive energy and the fulfillment of your dreams. The partner who left you and the boss who let you go only hurt you one time.
Every time you re-play those scenes and focus on how much you are hurting, you’re pushing away the positive energy needed to turn your life around.
When you focus on asking for exactly what you want, believing that you can have it and showing gratitude for what you receive, then you discover the age old secret to having the life you want.
The Law of Attraction is more than bringing things into your life. You can apply the Ask, Believe, and Receive approach to turn around a cycle of dead end jobs, lack of education, poor relationship choices or low self-image.
The Law of Attraction is just as powerful when you ask to find a mentor who will help you understand how to position yourself to get a career instead of a job. Believe that this mentor is nearby and will soon make contact with you.
Remember to be open to whoever that mentor may be. You might be surprised if the mentor is someone you already know and never thought to ask for help. When the mentor offers to work with you, believe that you can succeed with direction and receive the success that your effort brings.
The most damaging voice you hear is often the one inside your head. Negative self-talk may come from what you heard as a child, as a student, as a worker or while in a relationship with someone.
Worse of all, the negatives are how you put yourself down. The Law of Attraction works with positives. Why would the Universe bother to give you more of something that’s harmful for you? You’re already allowing that and look what that’s done to you.
As with the peaches example, to harvest peaches you have to focus on finding the peach tree orchard. Then you have to position yourself to pick the peaches and handle them properly after picking them or they rot in the basket.
Positive Affirmations are a way to position yourself in a relationship with the Universe.
Positive affirmations are daily exercises that are so important to re-aligning your relationship to the positive energy of the Universe. These are statements of fact. You affirm their truth when you embrace that truth.
Take care to write your affirmations in the positive and present, but be careful. Look at this example:
“I will be a top recruiter one day.”
That sounds positive, but wait -can you spot the catch? “One day” could be tomorrow, next week, or twenty years from now. That’s almost a negative because it doesn’t state a goal that can be realized in a specific time.
“I will become a top recruiter within 90-days from taking J.R. Jackson’s Resume Recruiting course.”
Now that’s a positive affirmation that wraps in a timeline and the completion of a goal. By finishing my resume recruiting source, you’re taking steps toward your dream. Setting a timeline of 90-days after finishing the course gives you a transition period to the new career.
If your belief system is strong and you are living fully in the positive, you can set that timeline to 30 days after finishing the course and be ready to receive. Some people even go as far as to state, “I am a top recruiter,” making it effective immediately.
Other positive affirmations build up your self-esteem such as:
“I accept that I am worthy to receive abundance.”
This is a broad affirmation, which opens to any possibilities of abundance. You may find that the Universe brings to you an abundance of supportive friends, career opportunities, creative talent or inner peace.
By not placing limits on what abundance means, you are open to receive treasures that you never even thought to ask for before. As you state the truth that you are worthy to receive, then you also free yourself from negative self-image or hurtful memories that caused you to feel unworthy in the first place.
If you only received this as your gift, how rich would you be? Yet the Universe is likely to give even more because you are free to receive.
WHAT ELSE DOES IT TAKE?
That’s the first question some people ask after hearing about the Law of Attraction.
“Well, it must be for highly intelligent people.”
“It’s only for people who are lucky.”
“This must take a lot of blood, sweat and tears to see some results.”
Not one of those statements has any truth. The Law of Attraction works the same for college graduates as it does for high school dropouts. Luck is connected with gambling and the Law of Attraction is about possibility not probability.
As for how much work it takes, the Law of Attraction is worked out inside your head, not with your hands or feet. In fact, once you grasp the power of human energy in the Universe, you’ll understand that if you’re sweating and struggling, then you’re doing it wrong.
WHEN YOU FEEL IT WORKING
As you repeat daily positive affirmations and change your negative thinking patterns into positive focus, you make some astounding discoveries. Suddenly you’re in the right place at the right time to meet someone or secure a promotion.
Even little things work out.
You’re standing in a long line to get concert tickets when a man hands you front row seats because he just got called to handle an emergency and can’t stay for the show. Don’t you dare say, “I’m so lucky!”
Instead say, “I just received abundance that is exactly what I wanted. I thank the Supreme Being (or Universe) for these tickets.” And then find a way to give back.
That’s only the beginning.
Instead of living in uncertainty and despair, you have a life full of possibilities. You attract what you want and need because you are focused, confident and secure in your beliefs.
The Law of Attraction becomes a way of life that brings -not just material well-being, but emotional well being, too.
The more you practice the Law of Attraction in every aspect of your life, you’ll find that getting a new car, job or home is wonderful, but it’s not even the most amazing aspect of this process.
The Law of Attraction would be just a cheap parlor trick if it were only about getting more stuff. The highest use of the Law of Attraction is in helping you become your best self and instilling in you the desire to help others help themselves.
