The Law of Attraction/Like Attracts Like

Do you ever have one of those days when, out-of-the-blue, something good happens? You find yourself smiling and moving from flat line to turned on.

Then something else good happens, and, low-and-behold, you get so buzzed that another good thing happens, and then another and another, until all snowballs into one fantastic day.

Why doesn't this happen more often?

And why do some days, instead, spiral down, down, down, everything going wrong, wrong, wrong? You can't wait to fall into bed at night and put an end to your misery.

What's going on? What's the hold up?

According to the Law of Attraction, the hold up is you. More specifically, what you're thinking--and FEELING.

Sure, you can't prevent bad things from happening (Though I'm sure you've tried).

But you can control how you react to all those ruts in the road and if you're going to allow them to become the driving force in your life.

"Welcome problems and eat them for breakfast," says Alfred Montapert.

Fear of failure leads to failure, faith leads to more faith.

So how does The Law of Attraction work?

Let me break it into five steps.

1. Your thoughts become things.

Everything in the world is made of energy.

Energy vibrates.

We are energy, thus we send out vibrations (in form of electromagnetic waves).

Energy flowing out from us comes from our emotions--low frequencies, such as worry, and high frequencies, such as joy.

Thought is propelled by our emotions.

Like magnets, we pull back into our world anything that's playing on the same frequency or wavelength as our emotions.

So we get what we emotionally focus on.

2. Focus on what you want.

Identify what you want.

Dare to dream.

You're already creating your life through your thoughts and actions, might as well create it the way you want it to be.

View your life from the mountaintop, see the whole picture, gain perspective.

Focus on the end product, not how to get there.

3. Feel good about what you want.

Pretend you already have what you want.

Envision it in vivid detail, how you'll feel when you have it.

Enjoy how it makes you feel.

Fake it until you make it.

It takes 16 seconds to link up vibrationally to whatever you're focusing on.

The magic genie is feelings, where your gut gets excited.

4. Believe you'll get what you want:

Expect and let it happen.

Positive thoughts magnetize your desires.

Look for and think about what makes you happy.

Add enthusiasm, add appreciation, create a buzz.

Pay attention, listen, trust.

5. Achieve what you want.

Write a new script for your life story.

Start acting it out, certain of a positive ending.

When you hit a wall, go around it or climb over it.

Acting is putting beliefs into motion.

Next thing you know, you'll be attracting just the right people, situations, and events to accomplish your goal.

When people start wondering why you're always smiling and what the secret is to your charmed life, go ahead and tell them, "Like attracts like."

Some may call The Law of Attraction a bunch of metaphysical mumbo jumbo. That's their right. But there's something I can say for sure (because I've experienced it over and over in my life): Good thoughts, happy thoughts, and grateful thoughts, attract more good, more happiness, and more things to be grateful for.
