<>Thank you so much for such long reply! The more I’m working on myself with LOA, somehow the more my feelings are changing. Deep down, I know there will be more chances for me out there and therefore, I will meet the love of my life but my brain tells me that I shouldn’t have done that. Feels like my heart and my brain are in different places. Sometimes it’s quite the challenge. But I learned that I need to care for myself first and foremost!
<>1) Continue to send out a Soul Call and hold your intention to welcome your Soulmate into your heart.  Connect with your Soulmate at the inner level by visualizing and feeling him/her as if he or she is already in your life.  You can do this by buying them a card, or setting a place for them at your dinner table.  You can also buy a soulmate ring, as a symbol of you holding a special place in your heart for your One.  You may also want to listen to my ‘Soul Call’ guided meditation, especially when you’re feeling disconnected or negative about your love life.
<>The first thing to do when you feel that there is room for more love in your life is to fill your thoughts and actions with nothing but absolute love. By flooding your mind with feelings of positivity and love for yourself and those around you, your ability to love and be loved back can shine through to others. Here are some visualization exercises for love that you can consider too.
<>That was March 2006. It was the first time I had shared my vision with anyone. The words, and this dream, were now out there in the universe. Were they out attracting things for me? I don’t know. But I believe it was a watershed moment. Still, there was a long road – requiring plenty of action – to travel before it would all come together five years, three months, and seventeen days later.
<>and the best part is they don’t believe in it their self ,the GODs of this law are people like Napleon Hill who he claims prior to putting this law to test for curing his deaf child , he didn’t believe in it and thats funny beause he had had many other works prior to Think and Grow rich! and he was writing something he hadnt believed in back in those times! ( before TESTING IT )
<>If you approach money like a power source of its own, then by trying to manifest it, you’re really trying to overpower it, and in such a contest you’ll usually lose. That contest, however, is completely internal — and pretty much insane. It’s like trying to arm wrestle yourself. How can you win? It’s a false reality you’re projecting because you aren’t ready to fully wield your own power yet.
<>I truly beleive the law of attraction works! Your story was so powerful! As for me, I started applying the principals to my life to make extra money during a time when I was unemployeed. Several weeks later I got a ramdom email with this AWESOME way to make extra cash and it is working! You can do this too, and more than likely, if you are reading it, it is because you also attracted this into your life! I was of course sptical at first but had nothing to lose and tried it. Now I am sooo glad I did and I know for a fact the law of a traction truly does work!
<>Additional to reading your very helpful posts I used to do the Soul Call Guided Meditation every now and then like you suggested in this post. It helped me keep my heart open and believing in the magic of everything that can be, it made me downright excited and tingly in my heart about the future. Unfortunately it is not available anymore so I wanted to ask if it is somehow possible to have access to it again? I tried a lot of other meditations but never got even a similar feeling afterwards.
<>Step 1 is important because it prepares your mind and body to receive whatever you’re asking for. Our brains don’t know the difference between reality and imagination. When you engage in full, sensory imagination, your brain fires up your body to move forward. Muscles, blood flow, heart, lungs and every part of your body gear up to take part in whatever you’re imagining.
<>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.
<>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.)
<>“I want to share with people that this stuff works! Although it sounds hard to believe, after just one session of your coaching, I met the love of my life. I was amazed! Part of me wanted to cancel the rest of the course, as I’d booked up a coaching series specifically to find love, but I continued as I’d booked them and was also curious to see what else I could manifest. I also wanted support with the new relationship. Continuing to connect with who I really am and with your support, I started my own business. I joined an exercise class at the gym- and loved it so much I’m now training to be an instructor. I didn’t used to like travelling- and now I have got three huge work trips/holidays booked for next year. And yes, my relationship is going incredibly well. I feel so much more expansive as a person… Almost like a new person. It’s amazing how the Law of Attraction can open up a whole new life when you apply the techniques.”
<>3. Love without fear of getting hurt. The scariest thing about love is opening yourself up to it. When you open yourself, there's a chance you might get hurt. If you're afraid of getting hurt, you might unconsciously be preventing someone from getting as close to you as you want. Be willing to take the risk and fully open yourself to love. You will manifest the love you want.
<>“There was someone who I liked. Well, it was more than ‘liked’. When I finally got the courage to speak to her after several months and tell her my feelings, she was very direct with me- looking me straight in the eye and saying “It’s never going to happen. I only see you as a friend”. I was absolutely crushed and also shocked- my guidance was normally very precise. But I also knew how guided she was, too. Despite her certainty, I couldn’t get her off my mind and felt very down about it. It’s awful wanting something so much which you simultaneously think is ‘impossible’ to achieve. These thoughts of longing lasted many months until finally, when it all got too much, I decided to give the processes a go. I began doing the Universe List. I ‘gave up’ trying to impress her, trying to be ‘good enough’ and trying in general. I fully embraced the situation and decided to release the control (which wasn’t working anyway). I said to the Universe, “if I’m meant to be with her I will be and if I’m not- so be it”. And I meant it, this time. Within days, we met up, and suddenly she expressed how she didn’t know what was going on but she saw me in a different light. My friends say it was like the uplifting ‘twist’ at the end of one of those crowd-pleasing Hollywood movies- something that doesn’t happen in real life. But it was happening, to me! Now, a year later, we are blissfully happy. We are experiencing what I have read described in spiritual literature as a ‘twin flame’ relationship. The biggest gift this situation brought me, though, is that when you give it all up to the Universe- things beyond your wildest imaginings can happen. It taught me surrender- which has caused all aspects of my life to flourish like never before. I have to add that The Law of Attraction Centre’s groups, workshops and community have been instrumental in assisting me making my life work.”
<>As you start shifting beliefs around this area of your life, you may notice certain things in your experience. You are meeting more people with whom you have common interests. You find yourself having great conversations with people, the types of conversations you envision having with your partner. You may find yourself going on more dates frequently with people who seem like a better fit for you than people you were going out with previously.
<>This phenomenal story is about a young nutritionist Shikha. She was just at the beginning of her career with big dreams in her eyes. Like other ambitious youths, the desire to reach remarkable success was making her stressful. She was wondering how long it will take to live all her dreams. At times, the desperation to be at the peak of success was making her restless.
<>3) The Third List: Your Gifts. The third list is, in my opinion, the most important one. Your soul mate will not be coming into your life to rescue you, make you happy, or save your life.  A soul mate is a friend and partner with whom you’ll be sharing your life.  Someone who will love, nurture and support you while you love, nurture and support them.  Someone who understands the power and beauty of a true soulmate union and will hold the space for love, even when you can’t.
<>In the New Thought philosophy, the Law of Attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, people can bring positive or negative experiences into their life.[1][2] The belief is based on the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and that through the process of like energy attracting like energy a person can improve their own health, wealth, and personal relationships.
<>Then one day in 2005, I had an “A-ha” moment. “Why couldn’t I be writing for Early to Rise?” After all, for the previous five years I had been a regular contributor to Men’s Health magazine, Men’s Fitness magazine, and several other large fitness publications. And each day Early to Rise published a short health brief in their newsletter. It was the perfect fit.
<>Many of us have had the experience where we keep on attracting the same kind of a person into our lives, and not in a good way! It happens because of the powerful law of attraction, but you don't have to keep on repeating the same mistake. What you need to do is to find a way to bless the past relationships, and to get yourself into a better feeling place regarding past loves, otherwise, you will keep on attracting the same type of a person. This is another topic that is discussed in this e-book.
<>The love is not what we try to understand as human love but soul love of spirit as you look into each other’s eyes and feel vibrations resonating from each other’s soul. These vibrations get higher and deeper as you connect in Divine Marriage as TF with smile on your face and happiness in your heart. You begin the journey with your beloved next to you. The heart is the truest part of love. Higher Heart is about service of that Love. The soul is about spirit energy, Your souls are magnetically attracted to each other and nothing will change that reality. It is your mirror. It was divinely orchestrated and nothing you can control in regards to your alignment to your twin to be united as ONE pure Divine Soul. Be appreciative and thankful as well as humble to be reunited in this magical union for you have gotten past your ego nature of I. You are discovering true pure love and communication in TF partnership. You nurture each other with eye contact and caring. The eyes are the windows to the soul. You receive a precious gift of what you truly deserve in your soul and heart. Its about growing up and maturing into higher Divine partnerships with commitment.
<>It’s ironic how I’ve already been doing these steps without knowing i was doing it..well i met my soulmate we are going through our challeging times. at first it was me i stop talking to him for six months gave no explanation i was healing from an abusive marriage had so many insecurities i began healing became whole. I was at a party had no idea i would ever see or talk to him again because i changed my number yes i saw him there i went to say something he was gone I was trying to think how will i talk or see him again I found his number we started talking again we have a deep connection but since i’ve healed i notice he has some healing to do from past marriage he was in yes 10 yrs ago he has not let go of what happened. Anyway we had a brief discussion he is holding on why i stop talking to him said when he wanted relationship i didn’t I explained it wasn’t I didn’t want one i had just gotten out of an abusive marriage i was in for 12 years he was shocked said i should have told him now he’s saying he’s not ready for a relationship right now his career i transitioning he’s deciding if he’s going to retire after 25 yrs of serving in military relationship too much. I expressed i understand since that conversation we have seen each other twice in unexpected places to see each other. I’m sharing this because i know without a doubt he’s my soulmate & i’m his soulmate actually when we first met he told me I was the one. I’m trust & believe in this love journey!! Thank you so much this is confirmation for me!!! Much love for you Gabriel
<>In my last LOA post, I talked in more general terms about what practical steps we can take to start feeling better about our lives as they are now because this will help us tremendously in genuinely shifting our energy, and giving less attention to the limiting beliefs that may have contributed to our situation as it stands now. And, I used money as an example, so this is a bit of repeat. But, some people may not have read that post, and for those of you that did, and are working on money manifestations, it probably wouldn’t hurt to be reminded again of how helpful this can be.
<>2) I was told by some people who also follow the LOA methods that manifesting someone specific was not advisable because it was going against the wishes of that said person if that’s not what they wanted anymore. He’s made it very clear that it is not what he wants at all. Am I wrong for wanting the love of my life back and just be given a genuine chance to see if things could work again?
<>Intimacy means knowing each other and sharing most coveted parts of your lives. The self-revealing behavior, when reciprocated well, forms an emotional bond which is hard to break. With continues sharing, this bond tends to strengthen over time and bring the partners much closer. Friendship is the first step to intimacy, so before you decide to get into love, make sure you both share good friendship.
<>“Over the last fifteen years, I’d read so many books about relationships; how to find my ‘soulmate’ or ‘the one’- and many other books like these. I even spent several thousand pounds on a few courses which advertised that they were going to tell me how to get my partner. But nothing worked, and with every new course I felt even worse and more defeated. When I discovered The Law of Attraction Centre, you made me realise that nothing would change until I changed. Although this sounds obvious, the way you said it meant I ‘got it’ on a deep level- and I signed up that day to your coaching. My initial thought was doubt: “How is this going to be different when nothing else has worked?”- and you seemingly read my mind (or maybe you’ve seen this time and time again), when you told me to follow the process and I would discover answers myself. I read the Success Stories archive over and over whenever I was feeling doubtful (which I was, I have to admit, many times in the early days)- and continued with my practice. Fast forward several months: My love life shifted in a way that was so dramatic it just had to be your work- I became ‘popular’ rather than totally invisible- that’s the best way I can describe it- and although I’m not sure if my boyfriend is ‘the one’ – the fact that I’m enjoying a real, fulfilling relationship for the first time in my life is a miracle in itself. Actually, the idea I’m not so desperate to force him to be ‘the one’ is probably a sign at how much I’ve changed: It was my neediness and desperation that was ruining my life more than anything else- which the ‘love search’ courses and books were just making even worse. I’m so grateful I found you and I’m now excited, rather than worried, at what the future will bring.”
<>Meditation can be used to manifest brain energy efficiency this allows the law of attraction to work bringing mind, body and soul the source energy into balance and harmony, I have manifested more wisdom, selflessness, unconditional love, inner strength and inner happiness. I now only want only what all can have I have manifested more goodness/energy efficiency, with more left brain logical/positive thought and no right brain anxiety based thought I can see that if all can not have it I do not want it.
<>I am so happy to share my testimony on how i was able to get back my ex lover on 13th of Jenuary with the help of Dr Abubakar since 3 year ago, I almost gave up trying to get my ex lover back to commit to our relationship fully.

<>Excelente artículo. La clave siempre será cuidar nuestro estado vibratorio ya que como vibras atraes hacia ti. La Ley de Atracción opera permanentemente de acuerdo a nuestro estado vibratorio habitual y es lo que determina lo que se manifiesta en nuestras vidas. Lo que emites, regresa a ti, sin excepciones.

<>The book presents familiar material about the Law of Attraction but adds further clarity. Moreover, there is a section about speeding up the manifestation process with heart energy which was new to me and that was refreshing. The author offers helpful meditations and exercises, some of which are also new for me. I enjoyed this book and found it to be very helpful.
<>Thanks for this article ! its really encouraging, I have been reading about the LOA and the secret and all that for nearly two years now, I manifested my boyfriend, although we’ve broken up now, i still believe that we might be together one day again, or ill meet someone even better! either way, i am working to try and be happier, and not lose belief in the things i want to have! I sometimes give up because i just go about my day and forget to think positive etc, and be grateful for things, but im really working on it now and hopefully it will work! Again, thanks for this, it has helped me to understand a lot more !
<>Bring 4 boxes and tag every one with a name , in a way of example (giving, risk talking, hanging out) .. but make sure to avoid any tags like expenses , because it will generate negative vibration ….then bring another empty box to fill it with the extras from the other box (tag it with :thank you thank you thank you for the amount of money you want to have in that box with a certain date in the future; and most important the reason behind it )..also you could fill the empty box directly every once and a while
<>Cutting Short tо Story, I hаvе written mаnу wishes in lаѕt session оf Mау 2016 whеrе I manifested 1 оr 2 wishes within 1 month.

<>I have had 4 major and three minor surgery to my lower back,for the past 12 years, in the past 4 years i have had fibromyalgia and have been on all sorts of medication, I still am. I have been going to my local healers in Aberdeen Scotland for the past 2 months, where i have been going through a slow transformation for the better. Then natural hypnosis came along and WOW, I have listened everyday as instructed and i have cut down in my medication, I am starting to feel more alive and i am so relaxed i had forgotten what it felt like.
<>For example, if you’re looking to create more income or manifest a big payday, you need to plan around that expectation. Imagine when someone tells you that they’re coming to visit and they’ll be staying at your house in the guest bedroom. You plan your life in accordance with that expected outcome. You prepare the bedroom, clean the house, wash the sheets, and so on.
<>Be and feel happy now. When you feel happy, you draw more money and more opportunities to receive money to you. You’ll find things you normally buy are suddenly cheaper or on sale, like groceries or gas. You’ll find new opportunities to make more money…such as being asked to participate in a craft fair where you can turn your jewelry making hobby into a side business.
<>Then something strange happened. Someone at work who I thought was a really good person confided in me about a problem he had – and he had done exactly what my partner had done and was suffering because of it. It was uncanny how similar it was to my situation, but here I was hearing the ‘other side’. At first it was difficult because I had my own judgement, but as I listened to him, I started to understand what my partner was going through – something I had never thought of before. For all this time I had seen him as a really horrible person out to get me, but I felt myself soften as I heard my colleague’s story. I started to see it from his point of view, which was so similar to my ex partner’s. Like a miracle, new insights and this relaxed sense of forgiveness washed over me. This was the answer I had asked for. I can honestly say I have let go of this situation that had been taking over my life and I feel great. This Universe List process is powerful!”
<>Hey Phil, my friend Claire sent this over after seeing me last night for the first time in months. I have been obsessively working on a project / startup to use rock climbing and adventure to help at-risk kids in the slums of Brazil. Check out our video if you are interested (www.indiegogo.com/adventureforgood) but that project is really not the focus. What I found is that although I love what I am doing and believe in it completely, I have been stressed out of my mind and without realizing it, I have been manifesting this stress into all aspects of my life and sometimes into the energy of my campaign. Reading your blog I was reminded of how important it is to manifest not only what you want but also how you want to feel. That energy is so important and certainly dictates how people feel around you. I have been bringing my computer to bed and stressing out over emails until I fall asleep… NOT healthy. This post really helped me reflect on practicing not only the law of attraction but the law of ‘feeling good’. Hope to bump into you around Boulder Phil.
<>You can do this yourself. You can become someone who purposefully creates ripples in the universe. Did you know, everything you do energetically ripples out and affects others? And the ripples then come back to you. This process is fast. Don’t underestimate how possible it is for you to be a true catalyst for change. You can be a magnet for all the positive ripples floating around out there. Like a radio station, you can tune into the good stuff. Starting right now.
<>You don’t have to go out on dates with people you’re not interested in, nor try to do something that goes against your own values. Notice what things or people you are consciously or unconsciously drawn to.  You might be lead into amazing, rewarding, or at the very least a growing experience! Be willing to trust that inner voice and be open to the mystery that comes from there.
<>It is a journey of ‘working on yourself’ so that you can arrive at a place of deeper intimacy as you open your heart, and share your unique gifts with your One. It is, in essence, a journey of transformation and growth where you become One – in consciousness – with the Love that you want to attract. Along this journey, you will find a new loving relationship with the person that you are becoming.
<>Hi Elizabeth – thank you for the wonderful insight into attracting an ex. I got your book and have started doing everything you suggest. I could feel my vibrations rising and went to sleep with a wonderful open heart feeling. When I woke up the doubts of his intentions started filtering into my brain. I quickly tried to cover them up with ______ and ______ together forever and we are 1 type of mantra. I switch between what will be will be and positive thought. We lived together f or 7 years and he has moved out. I have left his cupboards ready for him to come back but am worried that I am not getting the detachment thing right. Will it come in time if I just carry on practising everything you have suggested? Thank you for your time and care. JG
<>“I wasn’t able to get myself into a place to find love until I attended your workshop; and then I realised I had been trying too hard – but recently I met someone and although it’s new, it feels different to any relationship I’ve experienced before. I can totally put it down to the moment I stopped searching and needing someone; I started fully participating in my life instead of longing for it to be better. I had fun with the Focusing Process and I really ‘got’ Meditation and deep breathing, finally. It wasn’t instant – but trying out the different techniques and finding a way that worked for me was how it happened. I’ve known about the Law of Attraction for about two years and there were times when I wasn’t sure if it was working or if I was doing something wrong – but now I know that although it can take some time, it absolutely works. Thank you for the support when I needed it most.”
<>At the end of the experiment, those who imagined they were physically younger showed signs of de-aging. Blood pressure was lowered, arthritis was diminished and even eyesight and hearing in this control group improved. By simply imagining themselves younger, some physical aging was actually reversed. Their thoughts and imagination made this happen.
<>Great book. The techniques are very helpful. Like a lot of LOA books there's a lot of material. I've personally seen my finances grow after reading this book and I currently have much more in the bank than I had before I started the techniques. I honestly haven't done all the techniques like I want to and my finances have still grown. I'm looking forward to incorporating more techniques in my life and seeing my finances grow further.
<>2 or 3 minutes after I submitted my online application I was telephoned by the charity who said that they would be arranging for a volunteer to visit my flat and offer me an assessment. I couldn’t believe it! 48 hours later I had a volunteer on my sofa doing the paperwork, within 14 days of my application I had an English Bull terrier delivered to my door!
<>1) The Soulmate List. The first list is a list of ‘Green Light’ qualities and attributes that you’d like your soulmate to have.  In other words, this is what you want to “get” in a Soulmate.   In this list, you’ll describe all of the physical and non-physical characteristics you envision your soulmate to have. Here you want to include things that will begin to describe the kind of man or woman who would really make your heart sing.
<>For example, if you want a serious relationship, yet you invest time in transient relationships, you won't get what you actually want. Reality will give you transient relationships, or experiences, because that's the situation you're "in tune with", i.e. matching with, spending your attention on. Your "relationship space" will be occupied by transient relationships, instead of a serious one, which will not have the opportunity to manifest.
<>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.
<>Subliminal audio is a mild form of hypnosis. For those who just can’t seem to overcome the disbelief no matter how hard they try, if the doubts and negativity in your subconscious mind are too stubborn and the wish lists, positivity or even subliminal audio just can’t turn it around, you may want to try with natural hypnosis. The people who have tried it say that:

<>hey elizabeth!!!im really honoured to come across this website!!!It gave me hope when I was devastated. My story is like this. I used to like someone.In fact I really do love him with all my heart. I did my part and let him know about my feelings to him. He said that he dont wanna hurt me and he says I deserve someone better without even giving it a try. But my instinct always say that he do love me, he just dont want to show it. Every night, I would pray to god to give me signs if i should continue to believe in this love or not. I did receive signals not once but many times. Its like each time I want to move on in life something unbelievable happens, like getting a text from him and so on. I really want to share my love and happiness with him. I have completely let go and I am staying dettached. But I just want to know what else could I do to make him realise my love for him is pure? Please give me a piece of your mind. I really desire a relationship with him. I am looking forward for your reply.
<>Hello, I am hoping you can help me with this…. I’ve read that being excited to manifest your old love, or just a new relationship in general is okay. I feel so excited when the Universe shows me my signs of my desire. I’ve recently realized that whenever I see those signs, it makes me anxious to receive. Is there anything I can do to keep myself from feeling anxious to receive when I see these signs?
<>You should remain in a state of “as if” when using the Law of Attraction for a specific person. When you give attention to what is, you give it power to create more of what is. You should relax and allow your manifestation to occur, as you have always done. It’s a great way to create what you want and, as you release resistance and become more detached, you’ll be able to reach that state more easily.
