<>“I have been meditating regularly for several months now and also doing the written Law of Attraction exercises and several positive things have happened. One positive change that has happened is that I wanted to have a different manager at work. I kept focusing on this and even though I spoke with different people and sent some emails it didn’t initially seem possible. However, I stayed positive and focused on what I wanted and I now have a new manager. I have also been having more and more experiences of being fully in the present instant, in which I feel completely relaxed and fulfilled and I attribute this to my mind having become clearer through my meditation practice. Finally, I was recently on holiday and the trip went smoothly which I felt was a result of my connection. This included all of my travel arrangements going to plan and getting a hire car even when a lady working at my hotel told me that there weren’t any available with any of the hire car companies as they were all booked out.”
<>2. Focus on the positive. Let go of all your negative thoughts….such as “it's hard to find anyone,” “why don't they see how good I am,” and “no one will ever love me.” You have a lot of great qualities that make you so worthy of anyone's love and attention. Others do notice you and appreciate you. There is love all around you. Let it in. When you let it in and focus on the positive, you change your vibration and open a door for the Law of Attraction for love to bring you your specific person.
<>I know the LOA says when you want to manifest a specific person you have to be willing to lose them – you have to let go and be ok with not being with them in order to manifest the relationship you want. It also says that you should visualize the relationship you want with this person as if you already have it. How can one do both? How can I imagine being in a relationship with this person but let them go and be ok with not the being with them at the same time?
<>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.
<>I’ve been dating my boyfriend for almost a year now and we live together. In the beginning of October things were bad, he forced me to move out thinking it would help things, which surprisingly it did. I thought this would only make things worse, I was constantly worried he would cheat on me, go behind my back, and betray me; like he has before. We were still together, just not living together. A week later after we spent some time talking and working through things, I moved back in. Ever since then over the few weeks things have been great, he’s treated me amazing, however I still have a fear of, “what if he is treating me like this but is potentially going behind my back?” A few days ago he had a missed call from a number with a area code of where his ex lives, I do not know if it was her, a telemarketer, or just a random wrong number. But it is has worried me over the past few days. I also worry when I’m at work and he’s at home, what he’s doing. I try so hard to imagine us happy and trying to believe in everything he says to me is true and sincere. I just have major trust issues. I care for him an immense amount and would do anything for him, I love him very much. However, I do believe that I would be okay with out him.. eventually in time. I do not want this to happen, but you said you have to imagine yourself being able to let go of that person. He is for sure the person I want to spend the rest of my life with, and I never want to lose him. What I am confused about is, if I am using the Law of Attraction to attract him more into my life, what if he is using the Law of Attraction to attract a different person in his life, such as his ex, instead of me. Which situation with manifest? He is not the type of person to ever think about these, he doesn’t even know what the Law of Attraction is, but I believe he could subconsciously be doing this and not even knowing it. Again, I think way too in depth about things and sometimes just make it worse for myself.
<>“There was someone I liked for a long time and I just wasn’t sure if he liked me back. Well it wasn’t just liking- I was crazy about him… and it was becoming really tiring. The whole situation was annoying me- it was like an addiction. So I put on the Universe List ‘Take away my attachment to Mark’ and ‘Bring me a wonderful partner’. Then, a few weeks ago, he contacted me to say that he had some great news… he was getting married and wanted me as a ‘best man’ type figure!! Whilst initially having a Julia Roberts in My Best Friend’s Wedding moment, I actually felt a strange sense of relief just moments after. Within a day or so my attachment to him has evaporated- I feel genuinely happy for him (and even for her) and strangely wonder what I saw in him in a romantic way- even though he is a great person. I have also learnt things about myself and how this is a pattern I’ve been in before. And, what’s more, I even have met someone else who seems fantastic and actually likes me back. It seemed my attachment had jammed the romance door, preventing anyone from coming in for so many months. It is so amazing that I am starting to realise that everything that happens to me is a gift- and it is wonderful that I can now swiftly see the truth in situations which would have one time floored me and kept me feeling depressed and resentful for many months before I ‘got it’. Thank you, Universe!”
<>Thanks so much for your comment,and I am so glad you found the post helpful. Isn’t it amazing how we always have an option on how to view our circumstances? Whatever it happening right now is there to help you fine tune your money desires, and help you work on any limiting beliefs. Things will improve, you’ll pay off the debt and no harm done. That is what happened with me. The very fact you are reading about LOA to shore up your energy is a huge step in the right direction and I’m sure you are doing great!
<>Ever notice how travel magazines show a beautiful destination, maybe a white sand beach and azure blue sky? And, there is always a table and empty chair. Your mind is attracted to the empty chair. It wants you to be there. Goals are the same. The law of attraction is energised by the gap between here and there. So long as it is bridgeable (see tip 21).
<>When it comes to what draws people to give this whole law of attraction thing a whirl, I would have to say finding a relationship is right up there near the top, along with getting more of that sweet, sweet cash. And people seem to really struggle in the love department. But manifesting a relationship is not any different than manifesting anything else, in theory.
<>Hi I would like to give you my result using the manifestation box well it’s not my story but my 12 year old story she used the box to get an Ipad she put in a picture of it and wrote of it as if she had it and all the things that she was able to do on it. It took her 5weeks to get it but the only thing she wish she had done differently was be a little more specific she said “I want an Ipad” so she got an Ipad through her school for a year cause they started their first year of testing students use of Ipads in school. So while she has gotten an Ipad it is not her very own ,the box does work my 10 year old use it to get her new easy bake oven without asking me or telling me that she wanted one. I want to say thank you for this article it eliminates stress in trying to manifest things it’s so much easier this way even my kids are using it and getting results. Thank you.

<>This can be done through affirmations and surrounding yourself in the energy of abundance. You can do this by dressing up in your best clothes, daily gratitude practice to be thankful for what you do have right now and also repeating mantras and affirmations that help to rewire your feelings about money. This can help so much to get you into the feeling space to welcome in prosperity. Feel worthy. 
<>It is okay if you don’t have any idea what this person looks like or what type of person he would be exactly. Just imagine yourself in an interaction where things are just ‘easy’ and flowing well. No drama. Just sitting around, spending time together. Imagine yourself taking part in your favorite activities with this other person. Envision a conversation where you are talking about the topics of most interest to you.
<>A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.”
<>I was led back to ‘The Secret’ from an interview I read. Having read it before it made more sense this time about how to really believe and be grateful. I received a surprise check the following day which helped me to begin a project and have seen another financial boost since. The law of attraction and the positive feelings you convey ‘attract’ opportunities and help make smarter decisions. I finally believe and am making it a habit. I have always been ambitious so I excited at what I may manifest.
<>Remember, there are infinite ways to resolve a situation. Even though you’re used to believing that the worst-case scenario always becomes your reality, the best-case scenario has the same potential to come true as the worst-case scenario. They are both imaginary thoughts about the future waiting to be born into reality. You’re the one who tips the scales in the direction of favorable resolution or unfavorable resolution.
<>Just in case I haven’t made my point clearly enough, the attraction process is all about how we feel, so it is really good to get into the feelings that lie behind our desires, as much as we can. Think about what sort of feelings you want in your relationship. Are you after a sense of ease in interacting with this person, without any drama? Do you want someone who shares your same passions and interests? Then, visualize yourself in these encounters.
<>Most people live in this negative realm, so it’s considerably difficult to manifest money, or anything else for that matter, when this is the case. However, when you know that something will happen, your faith helps you to transcend that fear. This won’t work in the short term. The Law of Attraction takes considerable energy produced over an elongated period. Not days or weeks. Think months and years.
<>We live in a magical universe that can bring you exactly what you desire in the most amazing and even unbelievable ways. Getting caught up in the how can actually impede the law of attraction. If you are trying to control the how, you are likely getting in the way and making it more difficult than it has to be. Instead, let go of any ideas about how it has to happen and allow the universe to do its magic.
<>Emotional Charge: Emotionalize that goal (why do you want it, how will it change your life, in what ways will it bring you happiness, etc.). The idea is to increase and amplify the desire for it from a place of the heart. This powerfully imprints the vibration of your goal into your subconscious mind as you take inspired action towards what you want to achieve.
<>said on Oprah show: I only have one thing to say to you. OH MY GOD! I sent out 142 copies in total before 20 replied like the instructions said. Then I went on a short vacation. When I got back my account had over $32,000 dollars in it already and the money was still coming! I'm still floating on air (especially with my new car). I thought the "Guardian System" sounded cheesy, but now I realize it is the formula that makes this letter really work! THANKS.
<>Thanks so much..so glad you liked it. Relationships can be tricky because there is so much emotional charge around them. It is easy to get off track, and you are right, going back to information that reminds us of these truths and helps us refocus is one of the best things we can do. The reinforcement is necessary to help us reprogram because essentially that is what we need to do. For me, there are two things. First, is getting into that space of trust and knowing by looking back on past manifestations. We have a tendency to put more trust in the negative ones and then dismiss the positive ones…which is one of our weird quirks. And I do my best to step back from anything that isn’t making me feel good and just go do something else, like read a book or take a walk.
<>We can easily manifest money into our lives, or anything else for that matter, by expecting it to come to pass. Wishing and hoping doesn’t work. The Law of Attraction is founded on an expectation of a specific outcome. It revolves around the potential positive or negative energy that a given thought takes in your mind. When you expect the worst to happen, it often happens. When you expect the opposite, that often occurs as well.
<>Many people have limiting beliefs which keep them from allowing abundance and happiness into their lives. If this describes you, realize that you must first change your limiting beliefs into thoughts that you are deserving, worthy, lovable, desirable, and capable—as well as smart enough, strong enough, attractive enough, rich enough, good enough, and “enough” in every other way that matters to you.
<>“I spent years stuck in problems and anxiety and wasn’t enjoying life at all. I discovered the Law of Attraction through a book and things got a little better, but it wasn’t until I discovered your website (and workshops) that things really began to change. I’m realising that it’s all about whether I am ‘tuned in’ or not. I’m finding it easier to be ok when I’m not feeling so good, too, which before was very difficult for me. I am also finding that people in my life seem to naturally ‘get it’ and live better lives without me trying to change their mind set (which I was prone to doing before). It seems like my connection naturally influences those around me and I don’t need to work things out when it comes to other people, as Life does that. Meditation I am really enjoying, I never realised how important it was when it comes to applying the Law of Attraction before your events. And a testimonial for you: After nearly 15 years of being single, when I had given up many times over, I met my ‘one’. I didn’t need to try to find him, we just met through friends when I was least expecting it. I can see how your work relaxed me and made the whole process effortless. Thank you.”
<>Ultimately, you don’t need money to create certain types of feelings, and you can create them now. What can you do now that gives you a greater sense of freedom? Perhaps it is learning to say no more, being more selective with how you spend your time, or scaling back on commitments. What can you do to feel fulfilled now? Maybe it is doing some sort of volunteer work, or making time for a hobby.
<>I’ve been studying LoA for a few years now and have read countless books on the matter. To me, Napoleon Hill’s book was by far the best because it wasn’t just full of platitudes, it actually gave me some actionable items and did tell me that a certain amount of work was involved. This was important to me because I have a core belief (right or wrong) that you can’t get something for nothing. With that said, even with all the research I have done, and the belief that LoA exists, I have yet to experience any positive outcomes from using any of the techniques. Doing yet more research, I have come to the conclusion that there are two things that I am doing wrong, or more concisely, unable to achieve. The first being that I can not seem to attach a feeling to a desire. Try as I may, there remains some disconnect somewhere. Second, I have a lot of negative self talk and some negative core beliefs (both of which I am working to change… more research). I believe that these two things sabotage any attempt by me to manifest things. As I am practicing LoA, the little voice in my head (my Ego) will tell me that I am being foolish, or that “this doesn’t work”, etc. I tell it to shut up but it never does and introduces doubt every time. This actually brings up a third problem. Unwavering faith. You mentioned faith to get you back on track. Where do you find this? How do you develop it? Do you have any suggestions on any of these issues? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
<>“I was going out to a friend’s house on a night where I thought it would rain- so I took my umbrella with me. When I left her house after dinner, after a few minutes of walking I realised I had left my umbrella next to the chair I was sitting on in her dining room. It was late- and I felt going back would disturb her, so I continued, realising that I could borrow a colleague’s. When I walked toward my front door, I felt a strange relaxed knowing that my umbrella would be returned to me by the angels. I looked outside the front door and an umbrella was there and I thought ‘It can’t be…’. I looked- but it was my housemate’s umbrella. When I woke up the next morning, at the foot of my bed was the distinctive umbrella that I had ‘left’ at my friend’s house. As I was retelling this story to a friend, a woman at the next table in the restaurant generously asked us if we would like her tray of ‘high tea’ cakes. We thanked her and she smiled and left. A few moments later she returned… She had left her umbrella next to her chair! I love both the power of the Universe and also it’s sense of humour.”
<>You r right dat untill u hv frnds as bill gates u cann’t expect to get a jet plain as ur b’day gift. But here the entire universe is ur frnd who has got evrything lyk d ppl u see arround u,the birds who sing in mrng,the money u get as a salary, and the food u eat… he owns this earth and its systems. Universe is a form of energy… evrything on d earth happens because of energy and ur thoughts r energy too…. now accordng to newton’s law evry action has an equal n opposite reaction.
<>If you’re practicing the technique on something bigger, this exercise may be tricky, but use your imagination. If you’re trying to lose weight, go out and buy an outfit that fits the size you’re aiming for. If you want a new car, go to a dealership and shop around. If you’re aiming for something as big as complete financial freedom, start planning what you’re going to do with all that free time and money.
<>Unfortunately, we are not so great at naturally going to a happy place. But, with a strong intention, and some practice focusing, it is not as hard as you think. And, it’s okay if you don’t feel good every single second-you will still have your moments. The key is building up that momentum behind the good energy so that it starts becoming the predominant force.

<>When you want to become a money magnet, you must understand that money has a relationship with gratitude. Because the thought of money either makes you feel positive or negative most of the time. If it makes you feel positive then that’s great. But if it makes you feel negative because your focus is on the lack then this is where Gratitude works like magic.
<>4) Making Room for Love. I want you to be honest and answer this question:  As your life is today, do you have the time and energy for a deep, loving, healthy relationship?  Do you have room in your life for your Soulmate? Perhaps, since you’ve been single you’ve been working late hours, and have very little free time to go out on dates.  Or perhaps you’ve been accumulating a few “friends with benefits” who are keeping you sexually satisfied.  Or perhaps you’re so focused on helping others that you leave no room for yourself.
<>“I was in a bar and the three people I spoke to (or rather came to speak to me) thought I was ten years younger than I am. There was a time when people guessed I was ten years older! It also happens more often in my day to day life, getting compliments and admiring looks. Unsurprisingly, I’d been writing this on my Universe List and Focusing process every day. Then last week I met someone who almost fitted my ideal partner- another match to the Focusing Process! I’ll keep you updated!”
<>Firstly, find yourself a comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed. Start by closing your eyes and relaxing your body entirely. Breathe in and out very slowly, and make the breaths as deep as possible (on your belly). It is very likely that all kinds of thoughts will disturb you at this time, but you have to observe them and not let yourself to get emotionally involved with them.
<>The Law of Attraction has been popularized in the early 21st century by books and films such as The Secret. This 2006 film and the subsequent book[49] use interviews with New Thought authors and speakers to explain the principles of the proposed metaphysical law that one can attract anything that one thinks about consistently. Writing for the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, Mary Carmichael and Ben Radford wrote that "neither the film nor the book has any basis in scientific reality", and that its premise contains "an ugly flipside: if you have an accident or disease, it's your fault".[47]
<>But, after seeing The Secret in 2006, I started digging deeper in how to practice creating my reality with my mind. I started attending the School of Metaphysics, which is an excellent course of study in the powers of mind. Armed with some level of knowledge of the LoA, and what I’d learned and practiced at the School, I decided to facilitate a Law of Attraction book study group - where we studied and practiced exercises around Wallace Wattles’ Science of Getting Rich, and Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. I developed a manifestation practice where my Mexico dream was top. I imagined myself retired - relieved from the stress of selling real estate… in an area of Mexico that reportedly has the world’s second best climate… where I’d visited only briefly 10 years previous, but knew from that brief encounter that that little village was where I wanted to live in Mexico when I retired.
<>Completely out of nowhere I was inspired to look for my favourite breed of dog on a rescue website – it turns out that bull terriers have several rescue charities that deal with just that breed. I felt completely inspired so I filled out the application as soon as I found the website and just said ‘any dog in need would be ok for me’. I wrote on my universal lists everyday that the most ideal dog would come to me with ease and joy, so I really started to believe that this would be the case.
<>If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction, then you will probably know that the possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can achieve and receive from the Universe. I have put together a list of successful celebrities that use and love the Law of Attraction, and how they have used it to achieve success in life. Hopefully, this can show you how you too can achieve great things through the Law of Attraction.
<>Similarly, if you’re expecting to have more money arrive into your life, you have to plan for that occasion. Go tour open houses in your dream neighborhood. Go test drive your dream car. Start planning that dream vacation online that you’ve always been wanting to take. Plan it. When you plan it, it becomes more real and slowly manifests into your life.
<>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.
<>This can be done through affirmations and surrounding yourself in the energy of abundance. You can do this by dressing up in your best clothes, daily gratitude practice to be thankful for what you do have right now and also repeating mantras and affirmations that help to rewire your feelings about money. This can help so much to get you into the feeling space to welcome in prosperity. Feel worthy. 
<>Hi Shona, If you want to successfully use the Law of Attraction for love for a specific person, you need to overcome your fear. Your thoughts and emotions create, so if you continue to be afraid, you will create the things that you fear – his cheating, his not wanting to commit, etc. Sometimes the easiest way to overcome fear is to think about the worst thing that would happen if things didn’t go the way you want them. Often, that worst fear isn’t all that bad, and it’s easy to then let the fear go. Other times, it might be necessary to use tapping or EFT to get rid of the fear.
