The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. Your thoughts do not become your reality, your thoughts are your reality.
The very happiness (or sadness) of our experiences is happening because of the story that we tell. Positive thoughts attract positive experiences, and negative thoughts attract negative experiences. It is the Law of Attraction…
Abundance is a mindset. By definition, abundance is a large quantity of something, but the concept of large is all in your perception; $100 may seem like a lot of money to someone with only $5 in their pocket, and not a lot to someone with $1,000 in their pocket. But however you view it, the $100 is still $100.
It is your perception and alignment with abundance that determines what you will ultimately attract into your life. You get what you think about. But, you can not manifest abundance if you are not content with your current experience. And often, people assume when they are speaking the words “I want more money”, “I want more freedom”, “I want to find love”, that they are speaking positively about it, but in fact they are speaking from a place of lack, or fear, or discomfort.
Have you ever head someone say “You will find what you are looking for as soon as you stop looking for it?”, it’s because you have stopped asking for it out of a place of lack and you have become content with your current experience.
The subject of what you wish to attract into your life, let’s say money is actually two subjects: (1) money, the feeling that having it provides, the freedom that it provides, and the ease of mind that it provides; and (2) the absence of it, the fear and worry that the absence of it provides, and the feeling of being trapped in a situation (deepening on someone else or a job you dislike) because of its absence.
It is important to identify these two subjects, because if you speak of wanting more money from a place of lack and fear will actually keep it away. Your thoughts are actually manifesting the absences of money, or love, or happiness, etc. But when you speak of abundance from a place of contentment you are aligning yourself with the abundance and that is what you will attract.
The key to attracting abundance into your life is by shifting your mindset. Believing that you are worthy of having abundance, and that you are capable of achieving it is the first step. To do this, we must retrain our thoughts. This can be done through reciting affirmations, meditation, and surrounding ourselves with high vibrational experiences.
Two years ago, my current life situation seemed so out of reach. I was unknowingly presented with the same opportunity that I am now experiencing, but my desires for financial abundance and freedom came from a place of lack, fear, and disappointment. Because of that I was not able to see the opportunity for what it was, and ultimately invite the money and the freedom that this opportunity allowed into my life.
However, in the past two years I spent a lot time becoming content with who I was and where I was at in life. When I asked for abundance it now came from a place of contentment and a desire to live out my passions, instead of a solution to a problem. I realized that having money and freedom wasn’t going to change my current situation, but it was going to provide me with the experiences to live a more fulfilled life and to help others do the same. So when the same opportunity came along two years later, I was able to really see the abundance and freedom that it could provide and I immediately knew I was ready to take the leap.
So how do we shift our mindset and open ourselves up to attracting abundance? By diving deep into who we are, what we want, and most importantly why we want it. So ask yourself, what is it that you really want? Then, surround yourself with people that have it and that make you feel the way you will feel when you have it. Read books, lots of books. Journal, meditate, connect. Wake up every morning and tell yourself that you are everything that you could ever need in this world and that everything that comes to you will only enhance your current experience so that you can enhance the experience of others. Live out of purpose instead of lack.
