I have been practicing the law of attraction since 2011 . I came upon some very difficult times and with having 0 money to do anything I turned to the internet to figure out what to do . I am a realist , I have seen the hokey with this ” Law of attraction ” stuff , or the secret. I do not think by shouting ” And so it is ” is going to change your life . I do however notice principals within these books/blogs that we all could certainly use in our own life. Principles I use , or at least try to , to gain momentum and satisfaction in my life .
An excellent part of the law of attraction is anticipation. Anticipation is a big part of guiding your mind to ” receive ” . When I say receive ,the way I interpret it is to change your mindset so that you can start to see things in a way that will propel you towards what you want .
I hear stories of how people would sit in front of a home they wanted and think about what life would be like living there. I did this . I coveted a home in a specific neighborhood . I walked by everyday taking in all the surroundings of not only the house , but how i would feel in this particular neighborhood. I am currently writing this post from that very home.
I think a big part of this whole ask , believe , receive is the anticipation factor. Think of how you felt when you started dating someone , how you felt when they would call or text. Pure excitement. You must have some seriously strong feelings in order to get this to work .
I notice in my case I manifest the best when I act like i already have something . Not to long ago I woke up feeling very confident I was about to come into some money , had no idea where it was to come from , but it was a palpable feeling.Instead of brushing it off like I usually did i just rolled with it . Acted like i had this sum of money and that my current bill situation was all set. The next day I got a text telling me I needed to go get a check from an inheritance and I was genuinely creeped out ! Coincidence? Maybe . Am I a witch who can see the future , doubtful ( although I wish ) .
I am a big proponent of change the way you think change your life . These are a few things I do to help me with that anticipation feeling :
- Write down what you really want . When you get it out and on to paper it seems more real then just thinking about it . This way you can refine , cross out , re-do until what you want is clear and concise .This will help clarify what it is your looking for and in doing so you will start to notice things you may have not noticed before .
- When you have your ” vision ” try to imagine what it would look like living the way you want or having the things you want . If you are trying to manifest money , think of how it would look and feel to have that money . What would you do ? What do you think that you with this money would know or feel ? Who would you help first? What would you be grateful for ? Gratitude is a big part of this which I will talk more about in another post .
- How can you in this moment start to act like you have what you really want ? When i was trying to manifest money I opened another checking account online . This account was for me to save money and to put any proceeds from anything I have done to make money outside of my full time job . My biggest thing I wanted was to never overdraft my bank account ever again . Once I had this account I would pop in 5-10 dollars from my own account and put any proceeds from things I sold , random checks I would get in the mail anything. I tried to live within my means but having that buffer of even a few hundred dollars in another account gave me such a sense of comfort and richness even if there was only 100 dollars in there.
- You cant wait for the time to be right , but there will never be a right time. I struggle with this , even with this blog. I love writing , but I think I bounce around so much I would confuse people so i always thought about it but just never did it.. until now. I feel like if I am going to try and help people be the best they can be I just have to go for it , so as you are reading this now , this is me manifesting my own hope of helping people. So read this and then sit down and write. Feel it , embrace it ,imagine it . Convince your mind you already have it and your interpretation of things will start to change . Once this process starts it will be hard not to see things in a way that will be beneficial for what you really want out of this life.
