This is Part 4 of the Law of Attraction for Conscious People Series.
If you haven’t read the previous parts, I suggest you do that right now.This part wraps everything up in a nice package. It’s all about taking action and making things happen in your life.
I’ve realized that getting what you want isn’t that hard, it’s just scary. We like comfortable. We don’t like risky. Just because everyone else is settling with comfortable doesn’t mean you have to.
Go after your dreams, follow your passion and do what you want, even if it is risky. That’s right. I said it. Go do what you really want to do.
You don’t have to quit your job, but if you really want to, go right ahead and see what happens. I’ve never been broke or homeless, but I can imagine that it isn’t as bad as our minds make it out to be.
With all that said, here are five simple steps on how you can start applying the Law of Attraction in your life. Start taking action now. After you’ve read this post, take one step towards making your dreams come true.
Clarity is the first thing you want to pursue. If you don’t know what you want, you won’t commit to it and your thoughts will be too weak to make anything happen. If you want to wield true power, you might want to learn how to find your passion.
It’s okay to want a nice car or even a big house, if you do it for the right reasons. If your reason to have a car is to impress others, it won’t be very powerful and you will most likely fall flat on your face.
On the other hand, if you want a car because you truly enjoy the experience for YOU, that is a completely different experience. In the end, you decide what you want and don’t want. I can’t speak for you, so I encourage you to experiment and fail a lot, because that’s how you discover your true purpose in life.
Once you know what you want in a big picture kind of way, it’s time to get down to the details. Look at it like day dreaming. Imagine the end result. If you want a car, imagine how it feels when you drive it, how it smells and all that good stuff.
You might even want to go test drive the car you want. The more emotion, details and clarity you punch into your visualization, the more power your thoughts will have. Passionate people keep going no matter what. They are committed. In their mind there is no way out.
If you maybe want something, you’re not going to follow through and do what it takes. You’re not going to take action. You’re not going to follow your intuition. Stop giving into what you think you should have and start listening to yourself.
3. Letting Go
Didn’t I just tell you to get your emotions going? Well yes I did, but those were the good emotions. When you visualize and set goals, there’s always going to be a voice in your head that goes “yeah right, you’ll never be able to do that, just forget it.”
You want to let go of any attachments, negativity and other blocks. You can do this with EFT, Sedona Method, meditation or just doing it anyway. I covered this in detail in Part 3 of this series. These tools work, but they also require you to put some effort into them.
If you’re going into this expecting everything to be magically delivered to your door, forget it. I’m not saying it can’t happen effortlessly, I’m saying it is better to go in prepared to die. Your resolve and commitment will be much more powerful. It’s like wielding a lightsaber compared to a kitchen knife, you will easily be able to cut through any obstacles that land in your path.
4. Taking Action
The reason I said you should be prepared to die is because you will have to take action and it will sooner or later be scary. When you have a purpose that is larger than you, your fears tend to just melt away.
I’ve been constantly running into my fears and my own monsters while running the Wake Up Cloud. I’m going to start doing more video soon, which is pretty scary, because I have a lot of things I’m unsure about, but I know it is the next step and it will happen, so I just accept it.
The fear is still there, but it’s okay. Fear will always be somewhere in your life, the question is how you deal with it. Do you try to push it away? Do you accept it and make it your ally? It’s up to you, so choose wisely.
The Law of Attraction does not work without you taking action and committing. So when you know what you want, start taking action even if you don’t know what the hell you’re doing. If you’re sitting at home whining about not being able to do something, get over it and just START!
Congratulations. Most people never reach step 5, because they stop at taking action. Actually doing stuff scares the living bejesus out of people, including me, so it’s natural that the majority jump off the train at that point.
Once you’ve begun taking action, you will start getting feedback, mainly through your feelings. Some things will feel better than others. Listen to your feelings and do what feels good, even if it doesn’t make sense.
The Law of Attraction is just a label for a set of actions for me. It produces results, which is why I decide to use it. If the esoteric stuff doesn’t resonate with you, take whatever you need and use that in your life.
I am not here to tell you what to do. I am here to share my experiences and nudge you into expanding your mind to new possibilities. Being closed off does nobody good. The only way we’ll evolve is by listening to each other.
A great wind up post to this series Henri and as always you explain things really clearly. Learning EFT is on my to do list and I am going to start getting some goals together to visualize.
Thanks again and all the best for your move to the sun!
ps – gotta say really impressed with everything you are doing Henri, you have really put a lot together in a short amount of time and everything you do looks so professional. 🙂
Thanks, Jen! I do try my best to get things looking good and delivering as much value as possible. I’m using EFT right now to neutralize any flying worries, such as the usual about missing flights, forgetting things and so on.
Oleg Mokhov says
Clarity is a HUGE point.
You have to clearly know why you’d want something. Don’t do or want things just to do or want them. And especially don’t do things to impress others.
It’s all about the experience for yourself.
Your car example is spot on. It’s totally cool to want a Bentley or live in a mansion, if that experience will bring you tons of joy. You don’t care what others will think. You won’t drive the Bentley to impress others, but to get an amazingly pleasurable sensation of sitting in the interior and driving a fine automobile.
Nice series Henri. Can’t say it was for me (but like you said, it’s a label for your personal experience, and I take away what I need), but I’m still reading because your voice is coming out more and more.
Looking forward to reading more of your personal voice, stories and experience (and pushing myself to get more of that out in my articles too).
Yes sir. Follow your feelings. It’s impressive how well we can adapt seemingly irrelevant information to our lives if we just keep an open mind, so even if you aren’t into what you’re reading, there’s always something to learn. Sometimes the best ideas come from beginners, as they say.
Armen Shirvanian says
Good stuff here in this series. It did connect back well here.
I like the part about “Letting Go”. That detrimental internal voice can be let go by not letting it get too large in our mind. Sometimes, you take away that internal doubting voice and you then are like a new person.
Listening is another that is left for those who understand its value. It is easy to ignore people once the other steps are working, but then they won’t last for long, because without feedback, we can head in the wrong direction very quickly, and then we lose plenty of our time.
Clean points here.
My points are always clean and sanitary. But yes, the internal voice can be tricky, because most people don’t even know it’s there!
Archan Mehta says
Once again, this is an excellent post. Congratulations.
I read about your life and I felt really inspired by it. That, and your writing. You have excellent analytical skills and the ability to translate complex issues into simple truths.You communicate in a style that is reader-friendly. Your thinking is clear.
For a college drop-out, you have really gone places (literally!). Only goes to show that you really don’t need formal education to make it in life, but you do need life skills. It seems you have learned a lot from attending the “school of hard knocks” and the “learning by doing” model suits your temperament quite well. You are in good company. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard; Steve Jobbs out of Reed College, Oregon; and Richard Branson too achieved success and fame without credentials.
In an epoch seduced by formalities, your life is like a breath of fresh air. You have proved yourself to be a self-starter and have made it on your own terms by taking the initiative. Thanks to your talent, you were able to escape from Sweden and live in a warmer climate in Spain. You don’t have to work 9 to 5 because you are financially independent. There are a lot of people out there who would consider you to be a role-model of sorts, methinks. I look forward to learning more from you.
And I have recommended your blog to a fellowship of real and potential bloggers.
Oleg Mokhov says
Henri is the man. He’s going on to great things with Wake Up Cloud, and fast (you’re a writing machine, Henri).
This is like an essay of how awesome I am. I like it, a lot! Thanks a lot Oleg and Archan :D.
Just thought I’d come and join the Henri fanclub! woop woop! 🙂
And a thank you to you as well!

To me the two keys are letting go and taking action, which sounds ironic. But if you think about holding on is really a sign of doubt. When you are attached you are somewhat scared that you won’t accomplish your goal. When you let go, for some reason it doesn’t matter and you tend to do much better. I’ve found this in numerous areas of my life.

Bingo. This isn’t so much a “How to Use The Law of Attraction” guide as it is a guide to attaining any goal.
Dude, read Think and Grow Rich NOW! You’ll find a lot of the concepts in there will really resonate with you.
Henri, I have really enjoyed this whole series. The visualization is hard for me. I experience difficulty in going through this part in the present and with emotion. I would love to see a post about this in the near future from you. Thanks.
Hey Bret, Think and Grow Rich is a good book. I get kind of hung up on the burning desire much the same as visualization.
I’ll see what I can do ;).
Niall Harbison says
Along with taking action I would add in “having a thick skin”. As soon as you start getting bigger and your blog or website or business starts taking off people are going to start having a go at you and questioning some of the moves you make so you need to make sure you can handle critism and stay positive 🙂
Oh yeah. I think that’s material for another article right there. I’m looking forward to the criticism. It’s proof that I’ve hit another milestone along the road. A cause for celebration! 😉
Anthony Feint says
Henri, I’ve really enjoyed this series, Thanks! I’m going to start with the Sedona method and see how it goes.
You know I love reading books and I also love reading blogs. I believe reading those are taking action because it’s what I love to do.
On a higher note, I’ve come to realise something while reading this particular article. Listening: I’ve often wondered why the same things and ideas are repeated so many times by so many people. I’ve come to realise that it’s because they’re right. I’m not saying everyone is right about everything. I’m saying that the reason so many people say the same things and you see it everywhere is because they’ve realised it’s right and if you take action and it’s not right for you then go find another way, otherwise, it’s probably right.
I’m not saying follow the crowed either. All I’m saying is if results are there because of the action others have taken and you’re seeing those results and hearing what’s being said, what are you honestly waiting for!?
Great stuff here, Henri. Always love reading what you write.
You hit the nail on the head, Eric. I constantly learn and apply things to my own life and if they don’t work then I don’t share them here. Then it is up to you to try them and discard what doesn’t work. It’s the only way! 😉
Thanks for putting this series together Henri.
I’ve been looking for something that puts the Law of Attraction into something that’s easy for my brain to understand and you’ve done just that. (I’m not saying that your writing quality isn’t good in any way – just that you write in a way that makes sense to me)
Are you putting this into a format like an ebook or something? I’d really like to share the whole thing with people and would even like to link to it all from my own blog, as I think my readers would love it just as much as I do.
Drop me an email if you want 🙂
I don’t have any plans of putting it into an e-book, but if you want to put it into an ebook for your readers feel free to do so.
Mary Canfield says
Wow! Henri, the synchronicity is working! I had just commented about getting a car on one of your earlier posts. Then I read this one, and you were talking about what I had just posted in the other section, even some of the same phrases!
Well, that settles it! I was certainly on the right path when I came to your blog! I will be visiting often! Thank you so much, Henri! It has taken me a long time to get some wisdom! I was sleep-walking through much of my life. I am 60 now, and I am making a new beginning.
I think you must have been born wise!
Awesome stuff, Mary! Better late than never, right? 😉
I’m glad to have you hanging around here on the Cloud. It’s always fun to hear stories about synchronicity and how they can suddenly pop up out of nowhere.
Great post Henri,
I’d have to go through the three previous posts.
I’m a student of LOA myself and recently wrote about how to use it to attract readers to your blog.
I believe that we should never leave a life of struggle and whenever there is a struggle whether internally or without, then we are being instructed but we somehow are not listening or yielding to subconcsious guidance.
I’m amazed at your depth of wisdom.
Have a great day.
You make some good points, Olusegun! Listen, learn and adapt, right? 😉
Nice to meet you 🙂
