Applying The Law of Attraction - Taking The Reigns
Applying the law of attraction is the result of studying it. The more honest you are with yourself and the more you understand it, the easier it becomes, and then applying the law of attraction occurs naturally. In essence, applying the law of attraction is a lot like overcoming a phobia. Depending on your situation, at times, it may feel terrifying to face the truth. Yet you will overcome this feeling and replace it with overwhelming joy and confidence. Applying the law of attraction takes work and dedication, as well as patience and honesty. You must be willing to face all of your faults and failures and to forgive past angers and resentments. Finally, applying the law of attraction requires that you change the way you use your emotions. We do this through our thoughts, and though it may seem difficult at first, with practice you will see just how simple and powerful this divine shift in your consciousness, really is.
To illustrate how applying the law of attraction works, think of riding a bike over a ramp off the edge of a cliff with a parachute on your back. This is either a terrifying thought(terror being the emotion attached to the thought) or an exciting thought. Why would someone do this? The answer is because for them, the feeling of exhilaration over-rides the feeling of terror. The simple shift in what they focus their thoughts on determines the emotions they feel which determines the event that takes place. The person "feels" the rush of excitement as a wave over their consciousness before ever getting on the bike, they live the feeling in their mind first through their thoughts and feelings. In this way, applying the law of attraction enables them to do what many people will not.
When you first learn the art of applying the law of attraction into your life, it is always best to observe for yourself how seamlessly your moods transition into and out of each other. Some people like to create a "mood log" where they simply record on a pocket notepad what their mood is currently. Each time they notice a mood change they record it along with what they feel caused the mood shift. This easy technique is great for beginners to illustrate the power of moods and "feelings" in their lives. For it will become evident in a few days of this record keeping just how much power your feelings have and subsequently, how careless most people are in who and what they "allow" to change the way they feel. If you've ever had a bad day you can really identify with this concept. For most people a great day can be "ruined" by a single non-desired event. It can be as simple and insignificant as someone leaving the toilet seat up or taking your parking space. Bam! just like that our feelings shift to anger and our good mood slides into a bad mood. Which can only lead, by virtue of the law of attraction, to more events in your day that will "harmonize" with your mood.
Applying the law of attraction is understanding that each and every one of our feelings are signals to the universe. The only job of the universe is to respond to these signals by giving out what it has received. So if you are feeling angry then surely more things that will make you feel angry will follow because that is the signal you sent! This applies to every possible emotion dealing with every facet of human interest including money, health, relationships, you name it.
Spend a few days creating a mood log. Look back at your results at the end of the week and observe the best and worse moods you had throughout this exercise. Write down on another piece of paper which of these moods you would prefer to feel all of the time. Go through your log and categorize good moods from bad moods. Identify what events changed your mood from good to bad. Now spend some time re-creating those events in your mind. Go back there mentally and find a way to preserve your good mood despite the bad event. This is one of the secrets to applying the law of attraction. Learning how to guard the positive feelings you create within yourself despite what the outside world throws at you. When you have mastered this technique you have fully understood that you are not a victim of the world at the mercy of circumstance. Because you have the choice and the power in every moment of your day to choose how you feel and in turn, what you attract!
Applying the law of attraction is controlling how you feel. As a child cries because it does not want to put forth the effort to do something within their capability, so do people use their emotions to gain the attention of a "higher power" or others to do what they do not want to do. This correlation is staggeringly correct and we have all been guilty of these "emotional temper tantrums" at some point(s) in our lives. Applying the law of attraction, then, is growing and maturing as an emotional creature. Understanding the fact that whatever we feel we attract, it becomes evident just how precious our thoughts and feelings are. They can be used consciously as tools for creation or unconsciously as weapons for destruction. It is therefore your job to harness this power within yourself and it begins with learning how to feel good, no matter what.
Another great technique in applying the law of attraction is simply to feel grateful. Some people are so used to feeling bad it is hard to feel good about anything. In this case applying the law of attraction begins with feeling thankful for each and every thing that is positive in their life. This can be as small as being able to breathe. The important thing is to FEEL how good it is to be able to breathe. Learn how to FEEL the feelings of gratefulness and you will teach yourself how to feel good.
Make a list of everything you are grateful for. Spend some time and come up with the top ten things you are grateful for that elicit the strongest feeling of love within you. Tape this list to the mirror you use most often. Every time you use the mirror begin by mentally going through this list from top to bottom. Take the time and spend the energy to actually FEEL the feelings of gratefulness and how thankful you are to have these things. This shouldn't take longer than 5-10 minutes and it is an amazingly powerful technique in applying the law of attraction. It works because it builds the habit of seeing through the negative into what is most important, that which you care about!
By focusing on what you care most for and those feelings of love and gratefulness, you attract more of what you love back. It is always better to spend your emotional energy on what you want over what you don't want! Try it for yourself and take on an "attitude of gratitude". You'll soon learn just how powerful those two magic words of, thank you, really are!
The techniques for applying the law of attraction are as diverse as the people who use them. With some thought you will come up with your own unique methods which work for you personally. The bottom line here is that applying the law of attraction is learning the ways to feel good in your life and then guarding those feelings as you guard your wallet or purse.
