<>My life transformed in the space of a few months purely through visualising what I wanted and FEELING what it would be like to have it. I’m not saying I have it all, far from it and I still have days where I lose hope, but I would say the most important thing when you’re feeling down is to simply try and raise yourself to a slightly better feeling. Keep doing that, until you’re in a place to start imagining what you want… the rest is written in the stars! If you are struggling to find a happier place, a quick and effective way to do it is be grateful. Think of all you are grateful of and it will undoubtedly lift you up.

<>For example, you want to attract a romantic partner, but deep down you don’t think that he exists, or that a person so perfect would even be with you; or if you’re earning $2,000/month and you’re trying to manifest a job where you could be earning $50,000/month – which, no matter how much you want it, can easily seem out of your reach and stay in the domain of wishful thinking.
<>When we don’t treat ourselves well, that is a sign of low self-esteem; it sends a message we are not ‘worthy’ of love and care. And guess what will be reflected back into your reality? Taking better care of yourself, and treating yourself with the respect and love you deserve, will help shore up beliefs that say ‘I am good enough.’ ‘I deserve someone who treats me well.’
<>Here were my rules: In order for it to count, the money had to be from an unexpected source. If I was already anticipating the money that showed up, it wouldn’t count, even if I’d temporarily forgotten about it. Also, I didn’t want it to be associated with work. (Meaning, an out of the blue speaking gig for $1k wouldn’t count.) Anything that I had to work for wouldn’t be included in this tally.
<>But! Apart from being commercial stuff it’s underlying intention is to motivate people to do stuff. If you imagine real hard that you are getting a jet plane for your birthday, well it probably wont happen unless you are friends with Bill Gates. But if you really want to have 100 new RSS subscribers it’s not bad to really want it and to think about it because it will drive action. You might not be aware of it but action is what produced your results, thinking about them just pushed you to work harder.
<>Researchers at Harvard Medical School have discovered meditation literally alters the structure of the brain, thickening the regions associated with attention and sensory processing. Other research into meditation and biofeedback techniques has demonstrated increases in the subjects’ ability to remain focused on specific tasks, reductions in reaction time, and improvements in psychomotor response.
<>Now, because we attract based on feeling, and not action, you wouldn’t actually have to do any of these things to start attracting more money, but most of us aren’t able to make such a giant leap in the face of financial issues. The limiting beliefs around money are just too strong, and will need to be worked on; you won’t be able to shift perspective immediately. Don’t worry, by making budgets and what have you, you are not sending a message to the good old universe that you don’t think you can get more money—these things will make you feel better, and the better you feel, the more easily money can come to you.
<>There are also numerous references in the law of attraction community to the fact that the bigger you think, the more likely you are to attract it. Therefore, do not sell yourself short, and dream audacious dreams - as these are the only goals that will provide you with the strength of desire necessary to keep focussed when conflicting thoughts begin to emerge.
<>The real estate market seemed to turn worse every month. Half or more of the homes on the market were termed distressed properties - either foreclosures or short sales - where we tried to persuade the bank to take less than what’s owed on it, as a means of preventing them having to foreclose. An extremely difficult and laborious process, with very little cooperation on the part of the banks. Furthermore, the banks were cracking down on mortgage lending - meaning fewer people were able to qualify for mortgages.
<>He is my soulmate. We speak the same love language. We have this amazing telepathic connection that freaks us both sometimes. We both have our quirks which we completely accept and adore. We never stop each other from being who we are, even if it means being selfish or demanding at times. Fortunately, we realize our mistakes and make amends immediately. This is the best relationship I have been in. I know I want to spend my life with this man.
<>One of the coolest things that has happened, is that I needed some money. So I decided to use the law of attraction consciously this time around. I was really excited about it, and the money kept coming in, so I thought the law of attraction was working. But then I got a bill, and I was really confused why that happened. So I thought about making a new list, and take a look at the old list that I had made a couple of months earlier.
<>“I have followed your advice following the workshops… the changes happened within two weeks, I had been alone for two years and I met a lovely woman and we are really good friends. My financial situation is improving, even my ex-wife sent me £2,000 this week from some money she inherited as a way of thanking me for all I had done for her family!!! So this is just a letter of thanks, the spirit certainly brings the master when the student is ready, Namaste.”
<>So what does that tell you? Well, when I asked myself the same question years ago before I started doing this work, what I realized was that in order for me to attract and manifest my Soulmate, I must somehow develop and grow myself into the kind of person that I myself want to be with.   In other words, if you haven’t found the right person it’s probably because you are not being the right person! As Marianne Williamson says, “We must become the person we want to attract.”
<>“Continuing my journey to my soul mate, I have seen loving couples (including couples kissing passionately like teenagers in business and shopping centre). Whereas I would have previously felt more lonely seeing this- I thought ‘good for them’ and appreciated them. I learnt at one of your workshops that appreciation means increase- and a benefit of blessing meant that more love has been coming my way. A friend asked if I would like to be set up on a date with ‘someone who was just perfect for me’. This hasn’t happened for four years!!”
<>"I have been a single mother for seven years, and during that time I have had a few disastrous relationships. I have always wanted a very close and special relationship but couldn't find it. I had my heart broken a couple of times, but instead of giving up, I stated exactly what I wanted my man to be like. I said to my sister, "I just want to meet someone who is..." and I wrote down who my perfect partner and relationship was. I then let it go, with absolute faith that one day I would meet him. Two weeks later, I did. We have already planned to move in together and have a baby soon after my next manifestation. I am thankful every day that I discovered The Law Of Attraction, as it has truly changed my world."
<>The law of attraction for wealth teaches us that for us to get what we desire in life, our entire being must be vibrating in harmony with it. Once you have discovered the amazing potential of this law, you will want to use it to attract almost everything possible including money. Although using the law of attraction and money creation principles may seem simple in theory, in practice, it can be a bit challenging. Why?
<>I sell cheap gemstone beads, and they’re always problematic (quality) and a lot of work. I’m sitting on my porch thinking, “I want to go high end.” But I don’t have the money to buy expensive beads. Two weeks later a former customer emails asking if I want to go into business with him selling salt products. I used to run a warehouse and hated it, so I told him no, but you can invest in my business. He eventually invests $10K, and I buy high end beads.
<>My dog is amazing, he is such a joy and so fun and I love him to bits. He was a troubled wee lad and it wasn’t a Disney story for the first 6 weeks but I kept working with Tracy on focusing processes and appreciation lists and daily universals lists that me and my dog were ideally suited and that he was happy and content, living his ideal life. That was 12 months ago and my dog is so well adjusted, happy and the best company ever. His behaviour turned around in no time at all. I have my ideal dog and my dog is nicknamed by my friends and family as ‘the little king’ he landed on his paws.”
<>“I had got to the point when I thought all of this Law of Attraction stuff was rubbish, nothing good was manifesting… And then I discovered your work about three years ago- and I keep coming back to it. I have ‘streamlined’ most of my self-help books- because I just don’t need them anymore- your work has summarised the best of everything I ever read. I feel a lot more confident and freer about myself since doing the practices- friends have commented on how much more attractive I look and I feel like I’m living the life I always dreamed of living in my twenties now; twenty years later. More travel, more fun, feeling happy to be alive- it’s like a new life. I also would call myself a confident person now whereas before I was shy- for thirty years. I had resigned myself that this couldn’t change as it seemed so much a part of me- but it did change. What I love about your techniques is they put you into the position to attract whatever you need, so some ‘confidence building’ opportunities came after I had done a Universe List. Anyway- lots to share. See you at the group sometime.”
<>If you know yourself and are honest with yourself and appreciate yourself as much as you appreciate others and the universe you don’t need to be en guarde for ego violations all the time and point them out. :) People who DO have unhealthy ego problems wont hear you and those who have poor self esteem will put themselves down more. (wonder where they got that low self esteem to start….seems to be a lot of people around with it.)
<>Learning how to connect with yourself has a lot to do with tuning into your own need. Consequently, then meeting those needs. When you make a habit of this, you’re much more able to attract love with someone who will nurture you. One way to ensure you take better care of yourself while you’re looking for love is to set aside an hour a day where you commit to pursuing a hobby you love! This should be no matter what other, more “productive” things you could be doing.
