Feedback From Yesterday

I hope that yesterday you were able to go over any days you have missed as well as writing down all the things that you are grateful and thankful for.

Today We Look at the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is the name given to the belief that "like attracts like" and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.

You see, if you want something to happen, such as you want a bike, don't just say I want that bike, believe you are going to get that bike.

Instead of telling yourself you want the bike, visualise yourself riding that bike. It doesn't matter whether or not you know when you are going to receive it, just believe you're going to get it and have no doubts about it.

If you have any doubts, quickly change your thought pattern to the positive and focus on receiving or having what you want.

It Worked For Me

This year, one of my wish was to have a contract for training that would give me a certain amount of money which would help me to improve the quality of life for my children and I.

I had no doubt that in time, it would happen.

First thing in the morning and last thing at night, I would focus on this and I also was thankful and grateful to God for providing me with this.

Within a week of this, I was offered a part time contract for even more that I expected

Practical Steps to Use the Law of Attraction

For this to work, you have to believe that it will work, as well as be prepared take the necessary actions everyday towards achieving what you want.

To start with, make sure you have about 30 minutes and find somewhere comfortable and relaxing.

Relax Your Mind

Relax your mind by meditating for 5 to 10 minutes. Doing this will increase brain power and have your mind at that relaxed state.

This step is optional but recommended.

Be Sure of What You Want

Be sure about what you want and that is something you have strong enthusiasm for.

It is best if you focus on one thing at a time. Try at first wishing for things that are easy and measurable then when your wish comes true you will know for sure you got what you wished for. This will build faith.

Ask and You Will Receive

Make Your Request to God, the Universe or whoever you believe in.

Create a Picture Board (vision board) of what you want

Use pictures you may have or pictures from magazines a to help you see and feel what you want, look at that picture everyday (better to do this in the morning since this will help you to feel better throughout the day), and focus on feelings of happiness, excitement etc


Imagine that what you want is already yours – when you visualise, you have to do so in details.

Example: If you're wanting that Nintendo Wii, see yourself sitting down playing a game on it.

See yourself feeling the controller, playing your favourite game(s), touching the console.

Focus On What You Want

Focus as often as you can on what you DO want rather than on what you don't want.

Write Your Wish Down

Start with "I am so happy and grateful now that..." and finish the sentence (or paragraph) telling God/ Universe what it is that you want.

Write it in the present tense as if you have it right now. Avoid negation terms.

Every day until your wish comes true, close your eyes and imagine that what it feels like to have received what you want.

Feel It

This is where you have to feel the way you would feel once you have received what you want. You must act, speak, and think as if you are receiving it now.

Show Gratitude

Write down all the things you currently have and be grateful and thankful for them.

Be grateful and thankful to for experiences you have had which though may have been painful, but when you look back, you realise they have made you a better person.

Be Grateful and thankful that what you want to happen is going to happen.

Be Patient

Don't look for what you asked for, be patient and don't get upset if these things don't happen immediately.

Don't stress the "how" of things. Just know that in time, things will happen and work out for the best.
