This is Part 2 of the Law of Attraction for Conscious People Series.
The time was 12:10 on a bright, clear and sunny Saturday in Málaga, Spain.
I had just been to a Chinese acupuncturist. As I sat there on the train on my way home, I couldn’t help but look up at all the people around me.
Some of them were looking out the window. Some of them seemed to be deep in their thoughts. Some were smiling for no apparent reason.
What is it that determines if we get what we want? Is it god? Is it karma? Or is it just some unseen force that we have no control over?
We all have our own, unique challenges. There’s a reason you have the challenges you have. They are there to nudge you to grow. The sooner you can accept that, the faster you’ll get through it.
Getting what you want has multiple layers and includes several variables. It isn’t just about what you think, but that is a big part of it. There are common denominators among those that almost always get what they want.
It isn’t magic. It’s about connecting with who you are, getting clear on what you want and taking action. With that said, here are some characteristics I’ve identified in people that use the Law of Attraction effortlessly.
In the past, I wanted to test the Law of Attraction, so I started visualizing a blue BMW and it didn’t work. But I realized that I wasn’t being completely honest with myself. Deep down, I didn’t want a BMW, nor did I need one. When you discover your passion and purpose, you can come from a much more powerful place and know what you really need.
For example, I have discovered that I am passionate about helping and connecting with like-minded souls. Every day I manifest new people and resources that seem to come out of nowhere and want to help me. This is the Law of Attraction at work when you’re aligned with who you are and when you aren’t just following automatic programs configured by your culture, society, friends and family.
If you aren’t happy with what you’ve got, you probably aren’t going to be happy with anything else. Gratitude isn’t just something that magically happens, you have to practice, consciously. Meditate, think about what you’re grateful for and be present in the now.
I like to feel my whole body and breath. In fact, I am doing it right now ;). You know you’re doing it right when you feel energized, happy and loved. Your feelings may differ, but this is what I feel right now. Be grateful for what you have and you shall receive even more.
I’ve noticed that the Law of Attraction works better when your intentions will benefit the whole of the human race. When I played poker, It felt like a constant uphill struggle. I was making money, but I was only benefiting myself. As I moved to other venues of giving and helping, it felt like I’d stopped trying to paddle upstream. Instead I had turned my stuff around and was going with the flow.
My intention now is to help as many people as possible and connect deeply with the right people. This is an intention that is meant to benefit everyone. It is an intention that people can rally around. It’s not about me doing this alone, because without you, nothing would happen. You are integral to my mission, so why not join in? Start acting on your inspiration, it is your duty as a citizen of planet Earth.
If you want the Law of Attraction to work, you have to be ready to take action and act on whatever comes your way. Usually there isn’t a logical path to getting what you want, which is why you have to trust your inner guidance.
Burn all your bridges. Do or die. If you cannot say that to yourself, you probably aren’t following your passion and purpose. If you aren’t serious, no one will help you, because they know you’re just going to run off as soon as the next shiny thing comes around.
You will need to exercise courage if you’re following your path. Our body and mind likes the way things are, it’s comfortable, which is why it can be hard to grow and move past the illusionary wall of fear. When you have a purpose, it all fades away, and you overcome your fears.
I know that I am doing what I love and that my purpose is to help and connect. I run into fear all the time, but I know it’s part of the game. I am supposed to be doing this and I want to be doing this, which gives me determination and courage to move forward.
Fear will always be there. It’s a good thing. It puts up a wall that stops those that aren’t really serious and committed. If you know you’re on the right path, then you have no reason to stop.
