Understanding the Law of Attraction and How it Can Work For You

Bob Proctor is an inspiring man who has taught The Law of Attraction to millions of people around the world. One of his most famous quotes is, “If you can see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.” This is exactly what happened to me last week when I went to The North Face store in Seattle to buy a Gore-Tex jacket for hiking. For the past six months I’ve been looking for a waterproof jacket in a specific shade of blue with no luck. They were always too expensive and not the exact color that I had in mind. I’m not an impulsive buyer and I rarely pay full price for anything. A little over a week ago I started seeing The North Face ads on Instagram for their Summer Sale with up to 40% off of past season styles so I decided to check out their sale.

Before heading over to The North Face I had a vision flash into my head. It was like a movie of me walking into the store and being greeted by a sale person who guided me to a sales rack where he showed me Gore-Tex jackets. The problem was that they didn’t have the color that I wanted. So the sales person took me over to another rack of jackets that were the perfect shade of blue, but they were not on sale. He then offered to sell me the jacket that I wanted at 50% off. In this dream like vision I remember thinking that the sale was only for 40%, but he was giving me an extra 10% off. Pretty cool, huh!!

When I arrived at The North Face store for real, everything played out just as it had in my vision. The store manager took me to a sales rack of Gore-Tex jackets that were brown and light gray. I told him that I was looking for a blue jacket. He then took me to another rack that had the perfect shade of blue and offered to extend the 40% off sale price to me even though they were not on sale. Now here’s the kicker… At check out he gave me an additional 10% off for joining their rewards program. That's the exact discount that I was given in my vision, which made me smile from ear to ear. Talk about a deja vou.

Now you can say that this was a coincidence and that’s fair. However, this kind of thing has happened before and it is becoming more frequent the more that I understand The Law of Attraction. I’m not alone either, I know other people who have used this law to find the perfect relationship, the perfect job, perfect parking spaces and more. Here’s a warning though, The Law of Attraction does not differentiate between good or bad. Whatever you focus on is apt to manifest in your life. This is a problem because most people spend more time focusing on what they don’t want than they do focusing on what they want. You may know people like this who always have a list of bad things that have happened to them and they don’t hesitate to tell you all about them. I don't want you to go down the wrong path so let me share with you some tips that have helped me understand The Law of Attraction.

5 tips to for manifesting your dreams and desires:

  1. Take time to envision what you want, write it down, or even make a vision board.
  2. Research what it will take to get it. After all, taking action is important.
  3. Think about it enough that it becomes part of your consciousness and then release it to the Universe. 
  4. Feel like you already have it and be grateful. This will put you into a receptive vibration.
  5. Be open to seeing signs and synchronicities.

Most people struggle in life in one way or another. They don’t believe in The Law of Attraction because they don’t know about it, or they fear that it is a crazy idea. You see, a lot of us fear being ridiculed for having advanced ideas and this holds us back. It also keeps us in a lower state of vibration. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. As divine beings, all things are possible. So don’t let your ego or the doubters of this world tell you otherwise.

Get to know and love yourself so that you can align not only with your purpose, but also with the energy of the Universe. Develop a spiritual practice that includes meditation. The Universe is abundant, but if you continue coming from a place of lack you will continue to experience scarcity. I have let go of so much during the past three years and now I am almost always in a state of gratitude and flow, and it has made a huge difference in my life!

Wishing you much abundance,
