The idea that you can OM your way into success or having the life you want is misleading and causing confusion and disappointment. There is a huge amount of people that have been misdirected into believing having what they want is as easy as simply picturing what they desire. This misunderstanding has led some people to believe the Law of Attraction is a hoax and it doesn’t work.
Let me tell you why it hasn’t worked. The Law of Attraction is largely misunderstood.
How the Law of Action really works
There are several steps to the Law of Attraction. This is not something that you can do in a few minute of meditation each day. It requires several steps to manifest what you want.
Before anything comes into existence, it has to start in the mind with an idea. Everything we do, have or become starts with a thought much like a building, it always starts with drawing out what you wish to build. You take your desire and plan what it will look like, how it will function and feel and how it will be utilized. By thinking through the details you create first in the mind or on paper (visualization) then bring it forth into reality.
This is often where the law of attraction stops…or at least many people believe it stops. Think about your dream or goal and it will happen; that’s the idea. That is where the epic fail comes in. Some things may indeed happen this way, but very few. There is so much more to this process.
Have you ever uttered an affirmation and thought – yah, right! Who am I kidding? Or had a dream or desire and thought, well, I’m sure that would work for someone but probably not me. This is the next and critical step.
You cannot receive what you don’t believe you can have or achieve. If you believe you are not worthy enough, good enough or capable enough no omming in the world will bring what you desire to you. Additionally, if what you want is something that you believe you should not want or have you will sabotage your own efforts. Anything that causes you to believe something is not possible for you for whatever the reason is a limiting belief and must be addressed. Limiting beliefs must be overcome first, otherwise you are wasting time and defeating your own efforts.
Once you have washed away the limiting beliefs and you have your vision that you wish to manifest, the final step is action. Minute or massive, perfect or imperfect action must be taken. It doesn’t matter if the action you take in the direction of your dreams is exactly correct, but you must do something besides just think about it! You simply need to start and much like a GPS system the steps you take will redirect or recalculate along the way.
If you sit in a car, have a destination in mind, program your GPS but never put the car in drive you are going nowhere fast! You can imagine the restaurant you wish to go to, you can almost taste the food, you can hear the atmosphere you can desire this with all your heart but you cannot get there until you put the car in drive! Once the car is in drive you can set out in the wrong direction or make a wrong turn on your way but when you do that the GPS will say…”Make a U-turn when possible” or redirect you with a different route to your desired destination. This is the Law of Action and the sign of a great GPS!
Your dreams are the destination, your visualization the GPS and what actions you take are the force that drives you to your destination.
One of these steps without the other is going to produce limited or incomplete results if anything at all. Once you put them all together you have the key! Dreams are realized when clear visualization meets focused action.
Now that you have the keys, put your motor in drive and go get those dreams!
