Back in the late 1990s I watched the DVD, “What The Bleep Do We Know?” At last I began to get some idea about what the Quantum Field was and what relevance it might have in my life. It was a talking heads type documentary with a loose storyline illustrating the points made.
I subsequently read Lynne Mc Taggart’s book “The Field” and many others like it, and began to take on board what some tutors had mentioned whilst I was doing my degree, that we do indeed create our own reality. Then I saw “The Secret” and everything seemed to fall into place. I can recall the desire that filled my heart, knowing that – Yes, at last, all the stuff I had read about for years, now made sense.
Alan and I decided to put the Law of Attraction to the test. Whilst we were on holiday in Skiathos, and, inspired by the sunshine and views, we listed what we wanted; a Coaching Centre which accommodated 10 –12 people in en-suite rooms, with a beautiful view, in a sunny climate, with a swimming pool. A place where people could relax, eat well, exercise their bodies, heal their wounds, and review their lives and life purpose, and go home renewed.
Here is what we manifested (as well as having great fun and adventure) over the next few years. It is a beautiful villa which we had built in Andalucia, (which we have now sold). We called it Anam Cara after John O Donohue’s book of that name, and the Irish concept of Soul Friend.
But how many of you had similar hope and soon saw that hope dwindle into frustration? How many of you (and be honest now) started muttering things like:
- “It might work for other people, but I just can’t get it right.”
- “I feel really frustrated that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. (That’s me!)
- “Why am I having so much trouble?”
– “I’m trying very, VERY hard but still nothing is happening!”
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Although we manifested a beautiful Centre and had a degree of success with that, and a great deal of fun, nevertheless it certainly didn’t make us our fortune. We manifested a Centre but not an on-going sustainable business.
It just so happens that about 97% of people also couldn’t make the Law of Attraction work for them the first time round. Think about it, just like most things, you have to practice many times before you see success. A bit like a child doesn’t learn to walk without tripping over and falling a couple of times,
In practice, everything is easier said than done. When you begin to feel frustrated, it’s hard to stay positive. And it’s particularly difficult to stay positive when the evidence around you, like the unstable economy, is screaming negativity. And you know what happens when you fail to stay positive; that’s right – you begin attracting negative things in to your life.
So how can you make the Law of Attraction work for you? How do those who successfully implement the Law of Attraction do it with such confidence and finesse?
Well, here’s three quick tips so you will never feel frustrated or tired of begging from the universe, because you know how to start manifesting like a pro.
Just like a child who is lost approaches a police officer and asks, “ Can you tell me how to find my way home? Can you? Can you? Can you?”
If the child keeps on asking, the police officer can’t give an answer.
Well, if your mind is on permanent transmit, the universe — which is trying to respond — can’t give you what you want because you’re not allowing yourself to receive!
Just think of your desires and let it go. Trust that your cup will be filled with gold coins (or whatever it is you asked for) when the time is right, but remember, receiving takes time.
Have Patience With Yourself
Unfortunately, many people give up just before reaching the finishing line because they’ve decided that if it’s not working by now, it’s never going to work at all. Worse still are those who throw in more and more energy because they think that with more resources, the results will come faster.
This is a bit like expecting nine mothers to conceive and deliver a baby in one month! You also can’t bake a cake in half the time by turning the temperature up. You’ll just get a half baked cake burnt on the outside.!
Put simply, everything in this world has its own development time, so relax and be patient and accept that you can’t change that natural development time. If you remember this, you will be less likely to push yourself into a downward spiral of negativity.
Many give up because they think that “The Secret” is the “end all and be all” solution. Well, it isn’t. “The Secret” was never intended, and has never been, the whole answer.
Concluding that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work when all you did was watch “The Secret” 10 times (without thinking about changing the other aspects of your life) is like coming to the conclusion that exercising is not good for you because you run on the treadmill for an hour a day (but you’re still stuffing yourself with coca cola and chips).
So be curious and seek out new knowledge, and get amongst people who also want to learn and explore new possibilities, and offer each other support..
While the Law of Attraction is not an overnight delivery service, it will indeed deliver, if you do your part too!
