Over the last several years, I have been reading more and more about the law of attraction. I was first introduced by the concept with the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know, followed by, The Secret. I listened to speakers on the subject, read a few books and the like.
Then about 4 years ago I was introduced to vision boards by two coaching colleagues of mine. As they will tell you, I fought the idea tooth and nail, but I finally made one, and then we all shared each other’s stories and vision boards. I still have it in my office and since then I have made another one. I have also had numerous clients of mine create vision boards for themselves. I admit I haven’t done one recently, but I will when the time is right. By the way, my boards over the years have included places that I wanted to visit (of which 3 places I actually did go), and growing my business internationally (which has happened over the last 6 months). I also have to admit, some things haven’t occurred yet. I guess I just haven’t put the right energy into it yet.
What I am doing though, is reading The Law of Attraction, by Meera Lester. It is based on the theories of Esther and Jerry Hicks, Michael Losier and Rhonda Bryne. It’s a powerful book and very enlightening. I am not about to admit that I know everything about the law of attraction, but I can share with you some general steps to clear away some of the blocks that you might be facing.
1. Manifest positive thoughts
Write positive thoughts down imagining what you do want. Write it as if it already has happened. No butt’s! Reprogram your thoughts and let go of the negative baggage you might be carrying.
2. Cultivate feelings of self-worth
Know what you do have to offer and deserve to have. Forget the negative thoughts.
3. Focus on what you want rather than on what you don’t want.
Make a list of all the positive reasons why you deserve it and own it! Visualize it and declare it as yours.
4. Create space in your life for what you do want.
Clear out the emotional and physical space for what you do desire. Clear away the clutter.
5. Open your mind and heart to all of the possibilities and look at it from various perspectives.
Imagine it in different ways and fantasize about all the possibilities that could occur.
6. Be grateful for what you already have.
Acknowledge the loving relationships that you may have, the possessions and other positive feelings.
One thing I try to remember is that the most important thing is to feel good. You will begin to see that as you focus on the positive and express gratitude for what you already have the universe will send you even more to be grateful for.
I am finding, and I hope you do as well, that we can have the life we choose. It just takes positive thoughts and a little imagination.
