Okay; so you’ve just stumbled onto this great thing called the Law of Attraction, and you hear that with it, you can literally attract anything you want to you. You just have to learn how to use it, right?
Sort of. While the Law of Attraction is very powerful (and it will work “for” you, even if it’s not quite doing what you want), learning to use it effectively means working in tandem “with” it, not trying to manipulate it. Why is that? Because you can’t manipulate it. As the illustration from the last article (The Law of Attraction: Real, or Just so Much Hype?) demonstrated, it’s just like gravity; you can’t command or manipulate it. You can only work with it.
Once you understand how it works, however, you can work with it (respectfully) to bring what you want to you. It’s useful to start small, though, because you’ll want to become acclimated to it before you try to do too much. Trying to ask for and do too much at first will cause one of two things to happen. Either you won’t succeed, which will only reinforce your feelings of skepticism and failure, or you’ll succeed but then crash and burn, because you’re not ready for it. (Think about all those celebrities who suddenly experience success, only to self-destruct in a few years because they’re not ready for the sudden influx of “everything they ever wanted.”)
So start small. Pick something realistic that you know you would be comfortable with now, but that’s just ever so slightly out of your realm of current reality. Say, for example, that you need to get new tires for your car pretty soon, and you haven’t the slightest idea of how you’re going to get money for them.
This is a great situation to pick, because you’re not desperate (which can only make it harder for the Law of Attraction to work in your favor), but you do really need and want new tires. Normally, you’d also have to figure out a way to get them, but that’s where the Law of Attraction really kicks in and does its magic.
There is an interesting article in the Manifestation Magic Review for 2020 that you can find online that has a detailed analysis of the situations you are likely to encounter in your quest to achieve your desire where the law of attraction plays an important role but it requires strong imagination power from your side.
So, sit down and visualize new tires on your car. What are they going to look like, and what is it going to feel like to kick them or run your hand along them, and know that they are there, solid and secure? Think about that; visualize having them, and relax and really know that this can happen.
Now, forget about it. Simply turn this need over to the universe and let it bring you those new tires. Watch for this to happen in a number of different ways, too. Maybe, for example, you stumble on a discount tire place that sells tires for much cheaper than you thought possible, so that you can afford them. Or, maybe a friend offers to give you his tires because he really wants different ones for his car. Or, maybe you suddenly get a job offer you weren’t expecting, so that money worries are no more and you can afford them.
A final thought. You might think, “Aw, that’s not the magic of the Law of Attraction working! That’s just reality,” — and you’d be right. People who are really successful with the Law of Attraction know that Law of Attraction is *always* about reality. In other words, you attract your reality every second – whether you know it or not. More on that next time.
