How the power of attraction can help you get what you want?

Copyright © 2005 Emmanuel Segui

"Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person we become" said Jim Rohn, one of the world's leading motivational speaker, philosopher and entrepreneur. Every great achiever knows that certain mental laws exist by which you can turn all your dreams into reality. The Law of Attraction is one of the most important to understand, use and abuse!

Like attracts like.

"For intelligence cleaveth unto intelligence; wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; light cleaveth unto light; mercy hath compassion on mercy and claimeth her own; justice continueth its course and claimeth its own." This ancient scripture summarize what the law of attraction is all about. It is attracting to your life whatever you give your attention, focus and energy to, whether wanted or unwanted. The Law of attraction can work for you or against you. It's all up to you. What are your main thoughts directed to: goals, success, achievement, wisdom, truth, love?

Simply ask yourself: "So, what do I want?"

Studies have shown that more than 90% of self-talk is negative. In other words, all day long, you fill your mind, consciously or not, with negative thoughts and unproductive feelings. You therefore get a corresponding life. The law of attraction doesn't know (and doesn't care) if this is a good or bad thought. It attracts whatever you're thinking about. The solution to a more successful life is simply asking yourself: "So, what do I really want?" Take some time to define your ideal lifestyle, in every aspect of your life: family, business, financial freedom... And now that you have defined these goals, use techniques like affirmations or visualization to literally flood your mind with positive, motivating thoughts and feelings.

Does everyone ELSE seems luckier?

A lot of people like the verb "to complain". This is because they don't want to take 100% responsibility for their lives. However, this is the solution. "Everyone seems luckier than me," they say. Luck is a shorter term for "applying the law of attraction into my life daily". You can be as "lucky" as anybody else. Follow some simple steps that every highly successful person will tell you: set goals, dream big dreams, fill your mind with these positive thoughts and emotions and let the Law of Attraction work for you.

What You Think Is What You Get

Your reality will represent what is going on in your mind and subconscious mind. Your attitude will be reflected back to you by the attitude of those close to you and around you on a daily basis. If you are positive and optimistic - you'll have positive and optimistic people around you.

Re-visit from time to time the definition: "the Law of Attraction is attracting to your life whatever you give your attention, focus and energy to, whether wanted or unwanted." It works all the time, everywhere, it's completely up to you to activate it. Set goals, long-term goals and literally flood your mind with positive, motivating thoughts and feelings. This is how you become excellent, more prosperous and a successful entrepreneur.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way." - John Wolfgang Goethe

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." -Gandhi

The Secret as the Law of Attraction, which is the principle that "like attracts like." It is the most powerful law in the universe and is working all the time. What we do is we attract into our lives the things we want, and that is based on what we're thinking and feeling. The principle explains that we create our own circumstances by the choices we make in life. And the choices we make are fueled by our thoughts - which means our thoughts are the most powerful things we have here on earth.

The law of attraction means that everything that happens to you—good or bad—you attract to yourself.

Everything we focus on can have an effect on our life — from books to magazines to thoughts. All of that affects how we feel, and the feelings actually send out a wave into the universe, and anything that's vibrating in a similar level gets attracted into our life.

Most people focus on how it is. We talk about our current reality — 'I'm in debt. I'm overweight. I'm not happy. I'm sad. The world's not working. We're at war,' whatever. And the more you think about that and focus on that and talk about it, the more you attract that negativity.

Our thoughts, feelings and actions

Although thoughts are powerful, the feelings that the thoughts generate are what actually attract things into our lives.

We should stop feeling bad for everything, and instead feel positive that we are willing to do something to make our life better. Carrying with those positive feelings is one key to our success.

In order to attract the things we want into our life — our thoughts, our feelings and our actions all have to be firing simultaneously in the same direction. Visualizing our future life can help to hone our thoughts and feelings toward the things we want.

The thoughts and the feelings are often easy to grasp, but we still have to do something about them. We've got to act on it and make decisions on it.

Taking control of your destiny

Everything in the world is made up of energy, which is controlled by thoughts and feelings.

Thoughts can travel long distances, so we are sending out signals to many people without even knowing it, and these signals attract like energy to us.

This means there is no such thing as a coincidence. Everything happens by principles and laws in our universe. And so consequently, we have an absolutely unlimited power within us.

Thoughts — which turn into experience, speech and behavior — become the feeling tone of our life. An individual can actually begin to generate a certain feeling of gratitude, of love, of peace and of harmony, and the universe will begin to match that feeling tone — and what will flow into our life will match the feeling that we're holding. It means that everyone… can release ourselves from being a victim and begin to take control of our life's destiny.

The gratitude conveyor belt
Gratitude is one example of the magnetic force of the universe. Basically, nothing new can come into your life unless you open yourself up to being grateful for what you already have.

If you think about it, the universe has a conveyor belt of presents lined up for you, and until you receive the one and fully are grateful for it, the next one can't come out of the chute. It's all lined up.

This perspective applies to body weight, family, friends and other aspects of life. Too many people who want to make things better focus on what's wrong with the present. Instead of wanting to change it, appreciate what's there. Find the things about it that work … and by doing that, you create a space for it to get better.

For example, if we would like to lose some weight. But instead of focusing on the negative — that we haven't dropped the pounds yet — we love and appreciate the present moment, accept it and love it. We embrace every inch and every pound. In this way, we are creating the space to "celebrate the now" and then invite better things into our life.

The conscious versus the unconscious

Much of the energy that people project into the world is done unconsciously.

People aren't walking around thinking, 'I want a bad thing to happen to me,' but there's an unconscious fear. There's a doubt. There's a worry. There's a sense of separation there that's running them. Spiritual growth is allowing that which is unconscious to become conscious.

Spiritual growth does not mean religion but our "real identity." "The love, the peace, the joy, the wisdom, the harmony — these are all qualities of the spirit that it's seeking to express through us. And so as we become more awake, more aware of that, our life is filled with that kind of vibration, that kind of feeling tone. To grow spiritually is to actually become more aware of who we really are.

How do we forgive?

True forgiveness is when we can say the following to the person who hurt us: "Thank you for giving me that experience."

But how can we forgive when something truly tragic or terrible happens? We should grieve, but eventually we need to look for a hidden gift. Ask ourselves: How does this serve me? … If we're really willing to dig, there's a lesson in there, And secondly, what can I learn from this situation?

Even if we can't identify the gift now, to remain positive in order to benefit from of the law of attraction. We can say, 'There are so many gifts in this for me. I can't wait to see what they are'.

In chronic situations with no end in sight, we should ask ourselves another important question: "If this were to last forever, what quality would I have to grow to have peace of mind? Now, as my attention goes to the quality I have to grow, that quality starts to emerge. The issue that I'm resisting and fighting against becomes less and less intense … it begins to dissolve because it doesn't have our attention any longer.

You can start living the The Secret today by following three simple steps: Ask. Believe. Receive.

To start making a conscious effort every day to take actions that will sync with the energy of the life we dream about. When we're talking about action, we're talking about walking in the direction we want.

But not just any action will do. It has to be one that comes from the heart and will provide a real service. It's not, 'If you build it, they will come,' necessarily. It's, 'If you build it and it provides value, they will come.' It's that heart space. Not 'What can I get?' but 'What can I give and how can I serve?' And when we're in that moment, the universe lines up behind us and it's at our command.

'Secret' attracts plenty of attention
By Carol Memmott, USA TODAY

What's The Secret?
It's a controversial self-help book (and DVD) that has reached phenomenon status — by purporting to know "the secret" to happiness.

Today the book (Atria/Beyond Words, $23.99) hits No. 1 on USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list.

Want a new job, a million dollars or a gorgeous girlfriend?

Author Rhonda Byrne says the secret is the law of attraction: If you think positively, you become a magnet that pulls everything you want toward you.

The book has been touted on TV by Oprah Winfrey (February 8, 2007), Larry King and Ellen DeGeneres. Word-of-mouth is helping sales as well.

"People are finding out about it from other people," says Beyond Words editor in chief Cynthia Black, who heard about The Secret DVD from a friend and then signed Byrne to a book contract.

The DVD ($29.95) was released March 2006 and has sold 1.1 million copies. The book was published in November with a first printing of 200,000. There are now 1.2 million copies in print.

Byrne, an Australian reality-TV producer, says she discovered the ancient secret to getting everything you want through her study of religious and philosophical texts.

"Everyone has to have their own experience to believe," says Byrne, 55. "People should start with little things like deciding a cup of coffee will come to you or that you'll see a feather. There's no difference between attracting a feather and anything else you want. It's as easy to attract one dollar as it is $10,000."

It's no secret that Byrne has supporters and detractors.

Robert Thompson, a professor of media and popular culture at Syracuse University, has seen the DVD and calls it "at best, silliness." It's "good old American snake-oil salesmanship," he says.

But Arlene Shapiro of Pacific Palisades, Calif., says she has used the tenets of The Secret to control her panic attacks and to double her acupuncture business.

Byrne and her supporters claim all kinds of rewards from the law of attraction, from finding prime parking spots to curing cancer and kidney disease.

Byrne says that she used it to improve her eyesight and no longer needs glasses.

Susan Folkman, a psychologist at the University of California, San Francisco, says she worries about The Secret's suggestion that "people can cure themselves and that if they don't, they are somehow to blame."

Byrne has attracted numerous celebrities to her cause. In the book and on the DVD, the law of attraction is touted by such self-help luminaries as Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series; John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus; and financial and spiritual gurus.

As for skeptics, Byrne says: "I wanted to share this gift with every person. It's up to them to choose to believe."
