<>Don’t force yourself to do things that don’t feel good to you, if you really don’t want to do them. So, if you hate going to bars, don’t go every weekend. You want to act from a place of lightness and inspiration when you do act. You don’t want to act from a place of force or fear. There is never anything we must do to attract a certain thing into our life. If taking certain actions makes you feel good in the sense it nurtures a feeling that you will get find this relationship, then go for it. Just don’t get attached to the online dating, the blind dates, and the various outings that will put you in contact with the types of people you hope to meet. Have fun with it.
<>“For a long time I had read that ‘your thoughts create your reality’ and ‘positive thinking’- but something wasn’t working until this new approach- the techniques are literally life changing. I wanted to share an interesting and some might think ‘trivial’ story which was certainly helpful to me and shows the many uses for appreciation: After being inspired by a previous Success Story, I decided to take a different approach to the ‘ant invasion’ I was experiencing in my house. Rather than stay in annoyance (the words ‘what you resist, persists’ came into my mind)- I decided to welcome them in, appreciating them and their right to be (amazing designed forms, ability to work as a team etc.). I then went into ‘good things about the ants being here’ which included a nudge to tidy up and vacuum more which was a win-win. The next day- after doing this exercise just briefly- and without any intervention on my behalf- they had all gone.”
<>I remember reading somewhere that our ‘twin flame’ or ‘soulmate’ is being guided to us constantly as we are to them- so it is no surprise that the man I am now married to with a child was in my vicinity all along- and also it’s a truism that you ‘find love when you’re not looking so much’. Searching gets in the way, as my experience showed. Infinite gratitude to you and what you do :-)”
<>Until you meet you can use the soul phone for communication to the twin soul to reconnect to their soul and balance energy in soul. You have a memory inside of each other. The same energy when you go back to time inside you as was. Perfect synocity between you 2 as you establish peace, balance and harmony as One soul. Love them and they feel it. Tell them, ” I Love You” and they will receive it and feel it within their soul for the vibrations are at a high level and you establish a connection between you and them. Have to find balance and peace no matter where you are. 2 souls will seek ea other all time til they find each other til they reconnect. TF breaks old beliefs of race, cultural difference, social, age gap to undergo, etc but. that doesnt really matter for it is only the soul vibration that matters that activates peace to do what need to do as One Soul. 2 meet to evolve as One and know that they have to be in union for the vibrate with the same frequency as you on the soul level for you were once One and made at the same time. Have to make 100% commitment with them, TF deep down in soul can only have one mirrored vibration at the same frequency and that is with twin. Have to listen to soul talking and dont lie that twin doesnt exist. Your soul knows twin and deep down in soul it knows that you can only have one Divine Connection and only be with TF in Divine Love and partnership that is totally Divine in its sacred union of marriage. 2 soul charges of 1 soul with the divine creates supernal triangle. A union with God which shows compassion and knows the way from their heart. We abandon what we know about 3d relationships and work toward divine soul union in uniting as ONE. Its not about physical relationship but soul union between m/f charge of same portion of soul. One soul in 2 different bodies. TF has high level of Soul connection, not sex connection. We are put together from soul love deeper from soul union with God. Magic happens for love between TF so magnetic as you are drawn one to another, there is no distance.
<>The journey of welcoming your Soulmate is a journey towards your authentic nature.  It’s not a journey of finding somebody who is going to love you, make you happy, or give you something that you don’t already have, but rather it is a journey of growing yourself and your own capacity to love yourself first before you can love others or welcome and recognize their love.  It is about becoming more yourself, doing all the necessary clearing out, and embracing all the darker, subtle, shadow aspects of yourself that you’ve been unwilling to look at.
<>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.
<>It’s difficult to free yourself completely from doubt, fear or feeling as though you don’t deserve something. Your instinct might try to combat those feelings using negative thoughts like, “Don’t be afraid” or even direct conflicts like, “You deserve this.” Unfortunately, such methods are ineffective and simply don’t work because they reinforce negative thoughts and feelings.
<>After you’ve cleared out the negative thoughts that can hinder you from attracting money, you should make a decision about the exact amount of money you want to attract. Set a specific income goal. Don’t worry about how it will come at this point. Simply write it down boldly and put it where you will see it just before you sleep and immediately you wake up.
<>I used to do a lot of work helping people to stop smoking. There are only 2 reasons people don’t stop smoking. One, because they don’t want to (often this is subconscious) Two, because they don’t believe it’s possible. Or they assume it will be incredibly difficult and painful, and they can’t do it without suffering forever. (Again, this is often subconscious and it is a flawed assumption).
<>I have been applying the visualization techniques of the Law Of Attraction for a couple of years. I have been able to manifest those things I truly believed to the core of my being. And although I still think sometimes maybe this has all been an accident, I have seen the wonder and absolute amazement of the Universe and how it has led me to all the things I have truly, deeply wanted. I look back and see how the matrix of the Universe moved me to what I wanted without me even knowing it. It was like intuition that I didn’t realize was happening, if that makes sense.

<>Meditation, even on its most basic level, allows the mind to quiet which allows your natural frequency to rise as your mind is taken off of anything that may have been bothering you. Relaxation techniques used for meditation calm both your mind and your body, allowing you to feel more well-being, and when you’re set up for manifesting from a place of general pleasure and piece of mind, the results of that manifestation simply can’t turn bad.
<>Most people don’t consider using the Law of Attraction to bring better health into their lives, but as you noticed in the results of the aging experiment, it’s actually a great tool for that purpose. Because the Law of Attraction works with thoughts and thoughts affect our physical reality, you may be attracting poor health into your life right now without even realizing it.
<>A wish box is an interesting approach. I had done something similar years ago. I created a box, colored it pink and then put in it all the words and a picture of a person I wanted to meet. I put the box away and didn’t think about it much. About six months or so later, I met a guy that looked so similar to the one I wanted to meet, it was scary! A bell definitely went off.
<>The key is having clarity, and knowing what it is that you want. Why? So that you can identify it when you see it, feel it and hear it, and – most importantly – so that you won’t be sidetracked into a relationship with a person who is not the highest possibility for you.  A person who is not your soulmate. Remember, there’s no need to settle for less than what you want. It’s like going to a supermarket without a grocery list when you’re feeling very hungry. If you’re anything like me, you may have bought a whole bunch of stuff you did not need but may have forgotten to buy something as basic as milk and sugar, which you really needed.
<>I was in a ten year relationship with my child’s father, but he was a cheater. Eventually I started seeing other people years down the line, mind you our relationship was up and down. Long story short I became pregnant with another’s man baby, which was hurtful to the both of us. I still felt a sense of this happening wasn’t all my fault I feel like he played a role as well. I used to beg him to get our relationship back on track for about three years so finally I gave up because of continuous cheating. Well finally last year we I thought we were getting somewhere and boom came to find out the cheating never stopped, well I left again to begin a new relationship which didn’t work out either plus here’s another baby on the way. Finally the guy that I was with for ten years we started seeing each other again during my pregnancy, but the catch is he wants me to give up baby for adoption. We were broken up for seven months and really I feel my child isn’t his business. Nonetheless, for some odd reason I still love and want to be with him, but if he can’t accept the children, then I have to depart from him. How do me and the children attract him for a positive family oriented relationship?
<>The other day was particularly special. I meditated and I then went to view a property. The property needed some work doing on it and I had some questions about that and next thing I knew I was talking to a builder who ‘just happened’ to be next door who could answer all of my questions. Then a lady came out of a neighbouring property and asked if I would like to look at her house. The neighbour was really friendly and welcoming and said that that she would love it if I moved next door! After viewing the property I went to pick my son up and looked into the sky and felt blown away by the beautiful sunset. I feel I have direction, that my soul is joyful and that doors are open for me.”
<>Sure, you want money to pay your bills, take a vacation and do all this other stuff, but ultimately, you want it because having it will give you certain desirable feelings. You want to feel the peace that comes with financial security; you want to feel the excitement, fulfillment and all the other awesome feelings you would experience with doing the things that the money would allow you to do.  
<>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 wanted to share my positive experience with the Law of Attraction. After attending the Law of Attraction group, when I got home there was a lady hanging around on my block who’s always causing trouble who I have had anger for in the past. When I got into my flat I wrote a list of her positive qualities like you said and my anger dissolved. It was strange as usually when I am angry with her it can last for days and be quite painful for me, but it went. I guess this may not work quite as fast in all situations but I was surprised and to be honest I was looking for the anger that I had for her but I just couldn’t find it. Also, if I think of the lady now I don’t think of her as I used to, I think of what I wrote on the list so that is amazing. Thank you so much for this tip.”
<>“I had an exam coming up the next day- which I hadn’t prepared for. After doing processes, when I checked the dates the exam was the day after I had been certain it ‘should’ have been; the Universe gave me an extra day! I added on my Universe List for the Universe to do the exam for me, as I still didn’t feel prepared. It was multiple choice and what’s funny is the questions that I seemingly ‘guessed’ (which was most of them) – I got right. The two questions that I ‘knew’ the answers to were the only ones I got wrong!  And, yes, I passed with a good score.”
<>Thirdly, when you stop resistant thoughts, your vibration rises to a higher level. This is the whole point of meditation, I believe. To be still, therefore stop resistance and allow your vibration to rise. We are all energy and that energy vibrates at different frequencies, depending on how we feel. So, meditation allows you to vibrate at a high frequency. There are also other reason to meditate. You will feel better, you experience a sense of calm, you are happier. Most importantly, however, when your vibration rises, you open yourself up to receive guidance, in the form of inspired thought.
<>When it comes to love, people get disappointed when their dates don't meet their expectations and they don't see evidence that true love is coming. Out of disappointment or fear of being disappointed, they give up, never knowing what they missed. The key to the law of attraction is that once you are clear you desire something specific, you must commit to it for as long as it takes to manifest in your life.
<>“Since I did your Finding Love workshop I have sorted out a 15 year pattern of attracting ‘unavailable’ and ‘abusive’ men (as various therapists labelled them). I had studied book after book, courses and support groups, seen therapists, looking to fix my problem. It just wasn’t getting any better. When I found your work I was at a point of desperation- I realised nothing was working and a different approach was needed- and it turned out to be your approach. I know this has been said to you before but you provide something different that I actually haven’t seen before in two decades of personal development work; and it is working in quite amazing ways for me. In the year since attending I am now with a loving and handsome man who I would have thought was ‘out of my league’ before. It’s quite simply a miracle. And what’s interesting is two ex-partners have come back and apologised and/or wanted me back- two things I was desperate to have happen for years, no matter how much I told my friends I was over it- yet in my need it wasn’t happening. This year will be my wedding- something I had given up on ever happening. And yet it is happening. 2015 will be amazing- and all thanks to you.”
<>After this one, do a general visualization. See yourself already in possession of the things you want – the dream house and car you desire, your yacht or jet depending on your ambitions, think of your huge bank accounts and your safe in the bank, literally of anything that you can imagine. It’s crucial to feel as you already possess these things. Concentrate on the feeling!
<>No matter what your age, meditation is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Research at the Medical College of Georgia found that meditation lowered blood pressure and reduced the risk of heart disease and stroke. Additional studies have demonstrated meditation can reduce chronic pain, decrease levels of stress and pain in cancer patients, and reduce symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia.
<>A few months later, I was feeling more relaxed and excited about my life- and my friend (who is very intuitive) said he could feel that I would meet someone very soon. It felt good, and shortly after someone from the past came back into my life. I had dated him years before but it hadn’t worked. But when he came back it felt totally new; we had both changed and could now recognise the other.
<>I’ve been broke before – and I mean REALLY broke. My lowest point was when I just had around 70 cents (yes, cents) in my purse in order to feed my children for a couple of days. I remember walking around the supermarket wondering how the hell I would make it to the next welfare pay day. I purchased a no-name bag of plain pasta and the kids could eat it for dinner and lunch with some tomato sauce I had in the cupboard. The pain was so embarrassing that I struck a deal with the Universe that I would never allow myself to go there again.
<>first of all I love your book and have read it twice. I used your method to attract someone back after he had gone and it worked. As it is a long distanced relationship we didn’t see each other often so things had fallen apart, and we broke up recently again. I want to attract him back using LOA again. This time is a bit difficult for me as it’s the second time manifesting the same person, and now I get a bit confused: as I have to ‘let go’, do I still have to visualise every day? In the “letting go” period, should I think about him, or just making myself happy? I am training myself to visualise better but I find sometimes the feeling of love is strong but sometimes not at all (probably because the long distanced has dragged us down and it is the second time manifesting the same person). Will making myself happy work in order to manifest in this situation? I do believe Universe is making it happen for me but I would like to know if I have to feel ‘in love’ when I think of him. Thank you.
<>“What I most love about this work is how Life sorts everything out once you step out of the way. I sent out a request for a new partner and more fun and, realising I had been trying so hard to get these things to happen (online dating, speed dating, blind dates, dating clubs, looking for men in supermarkets with no success at all, I gave up and handed it over to Life on the Universe List . What really helped me, too was throwing myself into sports. I realised my previous hobby had been ‘looking for a boyfriend’ and I needed a new one. This request to ‘bring me an enjoyable hobby where I can meet likeminded friends’ again went on the Universe List . I was drawn to join a local swimming club and a running club and started doing these activities three times a week. It felt good to me to know that not only did running and swimming feel good, but as I was participating, ‘my team’ (as I call the Universe) was sorting out my relationship behind-the-scenes. I started to relax about the relationship subject, feeling less desperate. And in a short time, I have met some great men through the groups and one of them is very close to my ideal – I’ll let you know how it goes.”
<>4) Shine your unique light.  Be willing to, more than ever, be yourself with every person that you meet, and in every situation – no matter how casual the encounter might seem.  As Andy Warhol used to say, “Be yourself because everyone else is already taken.”  The more you are yourself, the faster your soulmate will recognize you. Remember: they are also looking for someone unique just like you, so when you stop being your true self, you’re also stopping them from recognizing you!
<>Maybe you have tons of bills to pay, and you don’t know how you’re going to come up with the money. Therefore, you walk around thinking about how you don’t have enough money and what’s going to happen to you if you don’t get the money. This thinking fuels an uncomfortable feeling state that attracts more debt instead of your intention to attract more money.
<>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.
<>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.
<>“I love your work at the Centre- it’s practical, it’s real and it feels so good to have found a loving community! Last year I was doing the Focusing Process about an ex-partner of mine, who I was out of communication with for months. The process really made me finally feel relaxed about it all. Just as I put the pen down, after finishing the last ‘box’, the phone rang- and it was her. We are now great friends and have both found wonderful new partners- all thanks to the Law of Attraction and your workshops (which we have both attended).”
<>You can try for Thanksgiving, but be careful with using specific dates. Many people get so focused on the date that they allow fears and doubt to creep up. As the date gets closer, they start wondering why it hasn’t happened yet and worry that it isn’t working. They end up not manifesting it not working when if they had stayed the course, they may have been someone the very next day.
<>1) I have had a rather bad break-up with my boyfriend. All in all, he wants to move on completely and says that while he loved me and cared about me at the time of the break-up he simply wasn’t happy anymore and wants to move on to a new city, life etc… We have so financial dealings together but he says he no longer wants to worry about it because keeping in touch about cash isn’t healthy and we both need to move on. He has made it clear that there is no way he would get back into a relationship with me. And of course, after being told this I wrote him an angry email giving him a piece of my mind. While I love him more than life itself and visualize us being together again I must say that I find it very difficult to imagine us together, based on the way he seems to feel (or not feel…) about me. How do I let go of thinking of the outcome when all I can do is think about him and that perhaps he will meet someone else soon, or already has etc….
<>Stop looking at the horizons in front of you and feeling overwhelmed. Look at the horizon behind you. It’s just as far and infinite. Think about how far you’ve travelled already. And, allow yourself a small tear of pride. Give yourself a pat on the back for the efforts you’ve made, the roads you’ve travelled. The universe thanks you for being part of this amazing story we’re all creating together.
<>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.
<>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.
<>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.
<>I am writing this post in the apartment I manifested. I had the exact apartment in mind as some friends lived here a couple of years before, but at that time I didn’t have the salary to afford it. When I did, I starting thinking about the place again. The woman who lived here worked for me and was telling me she was thinking of moving, but perhaps not for a year or more. I started visualising that place being mine for after she left. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, she suddenly left to go back to England, leaving me with a hole in my department but the flat that I wanted. Fortunately on both accounts I had a new department member within the week, plus the keys to the apartment, but cheaper than I had expected because the landlady said I didn’t need to pay for utilities as I was living alone! An intention I wrote about 6 months ago mentions a 2 bedroomed apartment by the sea, but with views of the mountains. My terrace is directly over the sea, I can see it from my bed, but from my front door I have clear view of the mountains.
<>It’s important to keep in mind through all this to spend your days focusing on things that feel good and make you happy. When you are happy and feeling good you are open to receive these inspirations. Complain less and appreciate more. Focus on everything that is going right. Meditate. With these things you will go through life continually manifesting the things you want.
<>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.
<>“I wanted a dog ever since I moved to London 14 years previous. It was a longing that almost caused an ache in me, I felt I couldn’t get a dog because of my long work hours and I never seemed to live anywhere that was suitable to house a canine. I mentioned this in my sessions with Tracy and we started doing focusing processes on just how good it felt to have a dog again rather than all the focus I was putting on ‘why I couldn’t have a dog’. In record time my landlord one day just changed his mind after 2 years of saying no I couldn’t have a dog. I nearly fell off my chair the night he told me that he just ‘changed his mind’.
<>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.
<>Love comes into our soul first. It points you to look at love in soul and allow it to grow so big then your 2 hearts and souls are drawn together in reconnection and unite as souls first than unite physically to meet to be united as one soul and find peace. Peace is where home is. Believe in soul love between your twin. Your twin lives inside of you energetically in your soul. There is a devotion and divine unconditional love for each other that allows love to live forever and spend your life with whom God chose to in his will and understand pure Divine Love. Experience love in the soul and share that love with the world. If you are separated from your soul you dont really know love. 2 twin should in mutual agreement and commitment on a soul level unite in a soul marriage not a 3d physical marriage of the physical. Face self and put way inner desire for benefit of both. When see twin flame you will see how beautiful soul is and see light coming out of their eyes coming into you. Have to let go, surrender and trust in your flame journey. When we accept our twIn and make a 100% commitment of unconditional love we are united in soul as ONE Soul. Unconditional love allows us to accept the person as they are and cant tell another what to do, try to change them, tell them how to act, have restrictions and conditions on soul partnership. Love then and fully accept each other as you are. 3d control doesnt exist in soul love. Need soul love for it is pure unconditional Divine Sacred Love ❤ and nothing else exists. Hard for men to say, “I Love You” although a prerequisite which allows soul relationship to flow and increase love at higher levels.
<>“Something had come up with my boyfriend- one of my fears, actually. When this had happened in the past I had never been able to deal with it and the relationship was immediately over. I forced myself to do one of the techniques I learnt about in your workshop- looking for the good in the situation. I didn’t feel good when I was writing this list for at least ten minutes, I felt numb- but I had nothing to lose so continued. After a while I felt myself ‘shift’; more relaxed, I even found myself laugh. Then a new idea came into my mind; a new way of looking at the situation. My boyfriend texted me a suggestion of how we could move on- and it was the exact same idea that had appeared in my mind! From a ‘no going back’ situation, in about half an hour, your technique shifted my worldview and that’s no exaggeration! Thank you for the peace you provide.”
<>Meditation can trigger heightened Alpha and Theta activity in the brain; states of mind often associated with creativity. Some forms of meditation also promote synchronization of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, another factor that has been identified in electroencephalograph (EEG) readings during moments of inspiration and during participation in creative activities. In a study conducted with 362 students in Taiwan to determine the effects of meditation on creativity, attention, IQ, and anxiety, the greatest improvement was observed in creativity.
<>Falling in and out of love is another concept that has been deeply studied. So, how would you know that you are definitely in love with him or her? Are there any indications that will help you understand whether you should fall for the particular person? In simple words, love doesn’t knock your door with permission. It simply does! Your work is to understand it and go with the flow.
<>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?
<>Step 3: It’s time to let the universe know you’re truly ready to manifest your soulmate. Simply coming into a more positive vibrational alignment can certainly help you find love. However, there’s also a specific process you can follow to help you attract love more quickly. These steps will open you up to a soul-deep connection with the specific person you want to find love with:
