(This is a question I answered recently on another site. Pay attention..this is how the Law of Attraction really works.) Question… Hi everyone! I am as new as they get. I tried the whole clearing your mind and visualizing the whole new car smell, feel, etc. I just could not get into it. I don’t know if I am doing it wrong or what. I am looking for some pointers and some insight, please.
Also, I tried the meditation thing. Not really good at that either. I just feel like I am wasting time. I don’t know if I just don’t completely believe in the Law of Attraction or if I am not concentrating hard enough or what. Please help !
****Answer… This one’s pretty simple. Visualizing is the start of the process of manifesting. Anything we became, achieved or acquired got there because we wanted it first. Then we visualized (or listened, touched, smelled…used whatever sense that made it more real to us). So it whetted our appetite for it some more.
Then the rubber hits the road. Where fantasies turn into manifestations. Our level of commitment. COMMITMENT!
See, it’s a big word. If we truly follow the law of attraction, we are lead to the intermediate steps that give us what we want. We develop skills we didn’t have before. We summon our courage to step out of our comfort zones. We detach from worrying about what others think. We value ourselves enough to sacrifice things that aren’t important enough and put our resources into the things that move us toward what we want. And make no mistake people… those things are time, sweat, and money.
And we create paradigm shifts…in the way we think, feel and behave. It’s very simple. If you’re visualizing but aren’t getting closer to what you really want, it’s one or more of these… *You don’t really want it. *You’re missing the signs that tell you which way to turn towards it. *You don’t love yourself enough to believe you deserve it. *You haven’t summoned the will power to follow the path that leads you toward it.
Now…how do you change that? Simple (though not necessarily easy)… *Clarify what you want. *Make it big and bright, again through visualization of some kind. *Develop the self love and self respect to believe you deserve it. *Make the commitment… what you want is more important than anything else in the world. *Hook on with a group that’s going in your direction. *Find a mentor or coach that will assist you in these processes, if you’re not getting there on your own.
This reminds me of a line from a movie: A League of Their Own. Geena Davis tells Tom Hanks she’s quitting the girl’s baseball team because “it just got too hard.”Tom’s response: “It’s supposed to be hard. If it was easy everyone would be doing it. The hard is what makes it great.”
