The last few weeks I've been doing a lot of reading on the subject of the Law of Attraction (LoA). Over the years its been written about in many different books; most recently in "The Secret". When I first heard about "The Secret", I thought the concept seemed a bit hokey. But I've always believed that the universe will provide for me, and bring positivity into my life if I spoke and emitted positivity into the universe. Yet somehow I lost that, and I started speaking negativity and feeding into it. And like they say, it comes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I initially started exploring LoA because a lot of ladies practice it on a hair board that I belong to. So many ladies had recounted how they had attracted things into their lives. I figured, what could it hurt. At least I'd put positivity into the universe, even if it didn't bring me what I was aiming for.
As I explore more of LoA, I realize that I followed some of the practices without even realizing it. One thing I've done for a few years is have a corkboard with things that I've wanted. Mostly its been fashion items, along with tips about finance, business, etc. Well in LoA, that's known as a visionboard or a dreamboard, and you're supposed to look at it everyday to keep you focused on attracting those things to your life. I've updated my corkboard, and I've created an electronic visionboard using Microsoft One Note (which is a great program and even has a mobile version for your Windows mobile phone). The second thing that I was doing was manifesting. Remember my obsession with the Gucci Joy NY Boston bag? Well I was so in love with that bag. I spent so much time on the Internets just looking at it, trying to see if I could afford to even just rent it (if I could get off the waiting list) and just loving the Gucci's. Well, the positivity that flowed out of me, and the passion I had for that bag, resulted in me getting not that Gucci, but a Gucci bag that I love a ton, which is the same style. What do you know, I manifested without even realizing it! But having that experience showed me the type of positive energy output that produces the outcome I'm looking for.
Now I'm hooked.
So I'm working on manifestations. I'm excited to see what the universe will bring me. And no, its not just a "pray about it real hard and then just sit back and do nothing" kinda thing. It requires effort. But I'm willing to do all that I can to make my dreams come true.
