How To Use Law of Attraction
Sometimes getting what we want with the law of attraction is as easy as thinking about our desire for a few seconds, forgetting all about it, then watching it roll in when least expected.
Other times, especially if it’s a really big dream of desire, it doesn’t work like that.
If you’re new to deliberate creation, this “how to” series offers the basics to start manifesting what you want, Good Vibe style.
If you’re not new to this work, these posts will re-inspire you about how easy it is to create what you want!
This is based on my experience as a deliberate creator and law of attraction coach, as well as absorbing a wide variety of manifesting resources (including Abraham, Chopra, Dooley, Canfield, Dyer, Assaaf, McTaggart, etc.).
The name of the game in getting what we want is Alignment!
Energetic (aka vibrational) alignment is your friend. That just means feel now how you would then. Which usually boils down to feeling some sort of ‘happy.’ (Could be secure, free, successful, acknowledged, validated, loved, whatever.)
Here are 3 steps to creating that alignment. They don’t have to be done in any particular order, and even just one of them can make a world of difference in your manifesting success:
1. Amp Up Appreciation
Some people have a nose for spotting lies. Others are good at drawing out drama in any situation. Maybe you know someone who has a gift for turning any comment into something sexual. Powerful manifesters develop a nose for Appreciation. It becomes natural to them – their default setting.
Appreciation is a major key to creating alignment. Getting in the regular habit of it just takes a little practice. Or maybe a lot, depending on where you’re at. But growing the skills of finding things to enjoy and be thankful for creates a powerful energetic path to your biggest and best desires.
Habits that build the thankful muscle include keeping a happiness journal, reading Pollyanna, hanging out with other happy people, listing 5 things you’re grateful for at the end of every day, etc. Read more about developing appreciation here.
2. Recover Lost Energy
Sometimes getting what you want is as easy as eliminating a big energy drain from your life. Anything that you’re tolerating drags down your vibe, keeping you from being a vibrational match to what you want. By plugging the energy leaks and recovering your energetic integrity, you automatically raise your vibration.
How do you release tolerations? First by recognizing what/who they are, since many of us have gotten so used to them we take them for granted. Once you know what your leak is, you either get rid of it or get over it. One way or another, find a way to feel better.
I’ve seen miracles happen for people who finally divorced, quit, or moved. It sounds contrary to the principles of deliberate creation that we take action in order to feel better (normally it’s “feel better and then listen for inspiration”), but if you’ve got something dragging you down, address it now by eliminating key tolerations to dramatically improve your attraction power.
3. Vibrate What You Want
Whether you call it Universe, God, the Matrix, the Field, etc.- source energy matches the vibrational signal you send. (That’s that whole “like attracts like” thing.)
To get what you want, send the signal that says “Got what I wanted!” When you offer that instruction, Universe responds in kind by delivering the goods. No matter how crazy or ridiculous or impossible the thing seems. (Is that a cool system or what?!)
How do you vibrate “got what I wanted” before you have it? That’s the fun part of being a deliberate creator! Use your imagination and experiment with what you enjoy most. Some possibilities:
- Some people do daily visualizations, running through the movie of their dream come true.
- Some journal it out in writing.
- Some script out loud (speak as if it’s happened. We do it at GVU every month.)
- Some use affirmations (“I am” statements being particularly popular among deliberate creators).
- Some “act as if.”
- Some simply find a way to feel now how they would then.
However you do it, when you change your signal from “I want it” to “I am loving it” you are irresistible to success.
And, this is why everyone doesn’t do it. It’s a bit challenging to break from “reality” and pretend we already got what we wanted. Reality often gets in the way, disrupting our signal, or sometimes people just feel foolish vibrating what isn’t real yet.
But it works when you work it.
Since Universe can only send what you signal it for, you have to find a way that says “got what I wanted.” “All is well here.” “Life is good.” “Thanks for the win!” Or something along those lines. Every time you feel a yearning, dissatisfaction, or lack of fulfillment, that signal holds up the party.
Which is also why the Appreciation practice is so powerful – because in vibrating appreciation Universe hears that you are happy and loving life. And sends in whatever else makes you feel happy and loving life!
Even if you can’t bring yourself to pretend that your desire is now a reality, if all you did was practice believing that it was coming soon, that optimism and faith serves as a powerful signal, too.
All three of these processes lead to one purpose: align your energy to what you want. Deliberate creators don’t wait for something to happen before they feel good and get happy. They get happy first, and then good stuff happens as icing on the cake.
