I’ll be honest.
I have received many emails like this: I often receive emails like this:
“I have been practicing the Law of Attraction for months and nothing is happening in my life. Am I doing something wrong?”
I want to clear the air by saying… the Law of Attraction is a law that works when you work with it too.
The more effort and attention we put into manifesting our desires, the greater the chances are that they will come true.
You can work with the Law of Attraction or against it, but if you are going to manifest something in life, then make sure your intentions are good and true because everything will fall into place eventually.
It’s like making fire. You need wood to get the heat. And that wood is action.
When I manifested a written contract of $10,000, yes, that came from the most unexpected source.
But I acted before. This person knew that I am a writer and that I am looking for work.
It’s not as if someone came and knocked on my door, offering me money.
The Law of Attraction is not an illusion. It helps align the people, circumstances, and situations you need to manifest what you really want.
But you can’t just sit back and relax.
The Universe can help you but as a co-creator of your destiny, you have to do work too.
Actually, there are three elements to manifestation, and I’ll explain them here.
Perhaps you have never heard them explained, as many spiritual gurus are afraid to tell the truth because they will lose clients.
The first one is faith.
You have to have faith that what you are doing will work.
You know, you have full confidence that if you get behind the wheel, you can drive.
Or that if you want to prepare your own scrambled eggs, you can do it.
You are not anxious about it because you have done it thousands of times before.
So it is with the universe.
If you believe that it will not work, then you will project a negative energy field and you will manifest the opposite, your actions will not work.
Your outcome follows your energy and when you focus on the negative, guess what?
Get more of the negative.
Faith is the most difficult to cultivate.
Most manifestation practitioners go into this with a feeling of “well, I don’t really believe this but I’ll try anyway”. And because of this, it doesn’t work.
It is like throwing a wrench in the mechanism of manifestation. It’s like being a sales person and going to someone and saying “you don’t really want to buy my product, do you?”
The other person will say no. If you don’t have enough faith in your product to be confident about it why should the other person want it?
So it is with manifestation.
If you don’t have enough faith that your desired outcome will happen, the universe will give you exactly what you fear.
This will give you a negative result, based on what you really focus on, and what you don’t want to achieve.
The second element is to act.
Action is a strange thing here because it is not the most important thing.
Faith is far more important than action. But still, you have to do your part.
What you need to know is that the universe doesn’t really care about how you are.
Things will not happen the way you want them to happen.
Instead, you need to be very clear about what you desire and then keep your eyes open for all the doors that the universe will open for you.
Here, the universe is like a guide telling you where to go and what to do.
When an opportunity appears, jump on it, and take advantage, as this is the blessing, the gift of the universe.
Don’t predict when it will appear, wait for it and know it will happen (the development of faith I talked about earlier).
The path from start to finish will be completely different from what you currently expect, and that’s how it should be.
Third, be very clear about what you want. I mean, very clearly.
Write down your goals. Write them in detail.
If you want to manifest a new home, don’t just write a new home. Write down the size and how it will look.
What kind of tiles will you have in the bathroom? How big will the TV be in the living room? What about the color of the walls in the bedroom?
The clearer you are, the easier it is.
Don’t ask for a second how you will achieve this. Just clear about what you want to achieve.
My friend wanted to find love in his life.
So he wrote a 12 page description of the woman he wants to attract. He went into detail, from what books she read to even the color of her eyes.
In the end, his journal entry was so long it could have been a movie casting. And guess what?
Just five weeks later, he met her. 95% of everything he wrote came true.
It was like he showed this man on this planet.
You know what the only big difference was? She was red instead of blonde.
But her education, her work, her interests, her love for pets, her sense of humor, everything came true. And not the only one.
I know people who have written 30 pages about what their ideal home would be like.
Less than a year later, they moved to that house.
Sure, not everything came true, sometimes the kitchen used marble instead of granite or the fireplace was European style instead of that of the United States but most of them did.
That’s how the universe works.
Be very clear about what you want and then add emotion to it.
You develop faith. You act and think not if it will happen but that it will happen soon.
The only uncertainty is when. Then you surrender to the universe and let it find the way for you.
When that happens, when the right people, circumstances, places, whatever you need, then you act.
You walk down the street. And the universe will help you every step of the way until you are there.
Step 1: Clarify what you want.
Step 2: You develop absolute faith that you will get it.
Step 3: You act when the universe opens the door for you.
It’s as simple as that.
That’s how I manifested the life I have. It was not hard work.
It was nothing special. I followed these three steps.
What do you think? Are you ready to strengthen the Law of Attraction using faith and action?
