LOA Success Secret #1: Get Right with Yourself
This is secret #1 from our Law of Attraction Success Secret series.
What’s the single most powerful thing you can do to manifest what you want?
Get right with yourself.
Meaning, get on board with your divine nature. Recognize your worthiness, see your perfection, love yourself unconditionally.
Preferably in this moment – not after X, Y or Z changes. Get in the habit of approving of yourself as is, right now.
Anyone who has read Art of Self Love won’t be surprised that this is my #1 law of attraction success secret.
I’ve been saying this for a while, so it isn’t really my “secret.” But even those who understand the power of practicing self-love and approval don’t necessarily practice it. (See my thoughts on that subject.)
Feeling less than fab about yourself is a good thing to change in order to experience strong vibrational alignment.
Because the Universe can only be as good to you as you are to yourself.
I can tell you from personal experience that self-love isn’t the easiest thing to practice, especially in a culture where self-loathing is pandemic. But I strongly believe it’s the most rewarding practice, not just for our manifesting success, but also for our life enjoyment and fulfillment.
So where does one begin?
I wrote that self love ebook specifically because so many clients didn’t know where to start or what the practice looks like. I’ve been doing this work consciously for years now, and making good progress, but I want you to know the process doesn’t have to be complicated.
In fact, relationship expert LiYana Silver shares these two simple steps in her lovely article about feeling good about yourself:
Start noticing what IS, rather than what we wish to be so.
LiYana says “we spend all our time wishing things were different, pondering why they are not different, trying to make them different, all in order to conform to our ideas of how things should go. It is a uniquely human trait to spend so much time ignoring what IS, and creating elaborate fantasies where things are different.” In short, get present.
Next after noticing what IS, is to notice what is already good.
I couldn’t say it better than LiYana does: “Our lives and selves are rich, full, convenient and blessed, if we only stop to notice and put our attention there. Something magical happens when we find something to approve of, the way things ARE, right now, right here. We ‘get right’ with reality; we get ‘right’ with ourselves.”
A woman who approves of herself is “right” with herself, the way she is, in reality, right here and right now. She doesn’t wait to start approving of herself for the fantastical time in the indeterminate future when she will be perfect. She does it now. Today. Against the tide. Again and again and again. She doesn’t wait for the circumstances of her life to line up just right, she celebrates what IS, NOW.
- dropping habits of self-loathing
- living in your integrity (whatever that means for you)
- honoring what your heart and soul call for
- eliminating tolerations
- treating yourself the way you treat loved ones
- recognizing your brilliant, lovable, beautiful self
When you live like that that, Universe can’t help but shower you with more good stuff. Although that way of living is reward enough in itself.
But don’t take my word for it – see for yourself!
And please share your self-love tips and experiences in the comments to encourage others about the power of this work.
