Back in 1978 I learned about the Law of Attraction when I took a class called Silva Mind Control. Kind of a creepy name, but since it was a class about controlling my own mind, I thought it was something worth learning.
Little did I know that it was a class about the Law of Attraction way before we knew of that phrase.
Imagine my surprise when I used the techniques and they worked. At first I attracted tangible items. A gold VW Bug. The classy apartment I had coveted for years. Later I attracted a high paying prestigious career.
After the class I was super excited to share what I learned. Lots of people listened, but most shook their heads and chuckled at my naivete.
Then, the move The Secret, came out.I was excited because more people seemed to be open to the concept of thoughts affecting The Law of Attraction.
Even though I rarely mention the Law of Attraction to my clients, it does work.
But if you ignore these facts, you’ll find yourself spinning your wheels and you’ll never achieve your goals.
FACT #1 THINGS TAKE TIME
Some people just think about something and “poof”! They seem to get what they want – almost immediately.
Wouldn’t you love to have that?
Can you imagine a world where that happens all the time? If everyone who wanted a new car got it at the same time, who knows what crazy chaos would occur. If there weren’t enough cars to go around, then what would happen? Would more cars magically appear?
Luckily the Law of Attraction has time on it’s side.
One appealing aspect of the Law of Attraction is the pleasure in the journey. Thinking, feeling, imagining, and expecting are part of the journey that makes us feel good.
The truth is, if we got everything immediately, then we’d miss out on all that pleasure.
FACT #2 WISHING DOESN’T WORK
This one has a lot in common with Fact #1.
You know that a wish is just a desire, or a want.
When you wish for something you must focus your attention first on what is missing in your life.
After that you think of what you want and hope it will happen.
The darn thing is, wishing is a fleeting thought.
The Law of Attraction however has more dimension and complexity because it includes your expectations and feelings of enjoyment as if you already achieved your goal. This is an important aspect.
Kind of like the difference between watching one frame of your favorite movie versus enjoying the whole film.
You’ve got to experience it to get it.
FACT #3 YOUR FEELINGS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE
This is the most important fact to learn about the Law of Attraction.
Because if you don’t pay attention to your feelings, you can end up wasting years of your life.
If you don’t pay attention to your thoughts, you’ll be spinning your wheels.
You’ll be stuck on the hamster wheel of life, repeating the same things over and over.
When you find yourself feeling bad about what is going on in your life right now, then that is what you’ll continue to attract; more bad feelings.
When you pay attention to your feelings you can change them.
You can choose to focus your attention on how you want to feel.
By doing so, you’ll notice that your attitude and actions will change more easily and ultimately open the door to your personal growth and development.
Remember, your journey is as important as your goal.
