I am going to start this post off by saying I am not a scientific person. I don’t understand mathematical or scientific equations, and while there is a whole scientific explanation for this, I am not going to get into that here. If you are interested you can continue your research after reading this post. But I am going to explain this as simple as I can so that anyone can start using these ideas to create a better life.
Thoughts create things.
Your thoughts create your reality, you are more powerful than you know or realize…
All that we are is a result of our thoughts. We as humanity has been led astray for centuries now from this powerful information, and I feel inspired to write about it.
Its what has been called the law of attraction, and it works, whether you believe in it or not. It’s like the force of gravity, it’s working whether you understand it or not, it never stops working, and it brings you the current life you live, you created your life right now using thoughts, words, and actions. Most often we create unconsciously, but once we start to understand this concept, and start applying it to our lives, there is no telling what you can create!
Have you ever had the experience, maybe as a younger child when our belief in magic, wonder, and awe was still very prevalent when you had a previous thought that had come to reality for you? For me it happened often, I would desire a new toy, and without any idea of how I would ever get it, I somehow managed to bring it into my life.
I had this mindblowing experience too as a child when I really wanted to go to Disneyland, but my mom could never afford such a trip but I believed I would go anyway, and guess what happened? My Aunt won a trip to Disneyland and took me with her! I remember thinking that something magical (that I didn’t understand) was at work, there was just too much crazy stuff that happened in my childhood that made my belief strong.
Then when I was 16 the movie the secret came out, which is of course what I am talking about here! I remember watching it and for the first time in my life hearing that this was a real thing, I was over the moon with excitement because I knew it would lead me to live a very rich and fulfilling life!
But then why is my life such a mess? I had good thoughts, and I had a good understanding of this law of attraction! Why haven’t I created everything I wanted yet? Wheres my million dollars, and beach home and world travel?
No, I have none of that, yet. Because unfortunately as humans tend to do, I thought I knew everything. But from what I discovered is that it goes much deeper than asking for something and thinking positive about it until it manifests. There are a few more steps than that.
IF you want to say attract 1 million dollars into your life, and you say I really want to have 1 million dollars, and then you carry on doing exactly the same that you’ve always done. It’s unlikely going to bring you that million dollars because you haven’t done anything to show that you believe that the million dollars is on its way. So guess what happens? Nothing… Nothing happens because you failed to believe.
There are three relatively easy steps to this process, understanding them is one thing, but applying them to your life is a whole new ball game. I struggled for years to understand how it worked, and I realized that it was my lack of belief in obtaining what I was asking for that was missing. The universe didn’t forget about me or screw up, it was simply waiting for my belief to align with what I wanted to create. Everything happens in the right timing, which can be a hard process to understand if you are new to this game.
Step 1. Ask
Asking is the easy part. We just have to ask the universe for something with intention. For example, I can say I would like to lose weight, but I am not going to lose weight by eating a bag of chips on the couch. I do have to still put some action there. Now if I say I want to lose weight, and I will eat healthily and go to the gym. NOW the universe has something to work with. You ask for something and then take steps towards obtaining it. If you want to make a million dollars do SOMETHING, anything that will promote you being a millionaire. Maybe you take a finance class so you know how to manage that sum of money when you receive it, or maybe you start looking into ways online to make money. This is the year that is said to produce the highest amount of millionaires in history, it’s not as much of a pie in the sky thing we once thought it to be. We are entering the age of abundance for all!
Step 2. Believe
The second step is believing, which in my honest opinion is the hardest part. We truly must believe that we will receive that million dollars, or that we can indeed lose weight. I struggled with this one for years, not realizing that I didn’t actually believe I could lose weight and I would be chubby forever, so I never actually did lose much weight despite going to the gym daily and eating healthy. It was a very frustrating time for me, until one day a couple months ago, I decided that instead of busting my ass at the gym and eating like a rabbit, I should work on my mindset and my beliefs around losing weight. It turned out to be the missing key to the puzzle, and the weight started to fall off magically without going to the gym or watching what I ate. It was honestly a miracle seeing the pounds disappear day by day!
Step 3: Recieve
This one sounds silly, but honestly, we must be opened to receiving. If you struggle to accept a compliment from someone because you feel unworthy, or unlovable. Then how are you going to expect to receive all the glorious blessings the universe has in store for you? I had always thought I was opened to receiving, but then when I really dove deep into my own self, I realized that there was a lot holding me back from allowing things into my life. Specifically, love, how on earth was I supposed to accept love from someone if I hadn’t even learned to love myself yet? Which of course launched me on a journey of self-love, which has made all the difference in my life. I no longer feel the need to lose weight in order to be loveable, and now that I don’t focus on losing weight, it’s falling off.
The universe is waiting to give you the blessings you desire. It’s a journey I recommend anyone to go on because it’s phenomenal. Believe in the universe and the good things will begin to flow. If you think the universe is out to get you, and everything goes wrong to you, then guess what? Everything will go wrong, and I likely don’t have to convince you that is true… Your own life reflection is proof enough that this is true. There are some things that happen in which we just can’t explain.
Take note though that if it is money you are after, it won’t make you happy. You think it will because we are happy when we have a lot of money, but it’s not a lasting feeling. It comes and goes, and you are left with the same state of mind as you had before. Happiness is a state of mind, and you can be as happy as you allow yourself to be, even right here you can choose to be happy.
Showing gratitude for everything in my life has been a solid happiness increaser over the years. I realize I don’t need anyone or anything to be happy. Sure there are always things that will bring me immense moments of happiness, like going on a trip, or meeting someone new, or get a big sum of money. But they don’t define my happiness.
Our thoughts really do create our realities. I find it almost crazy because where I am now in my life I imagined a few years ago, and here I am exactly where I need to be in order to go onto the next stage of my life.
It does require patience though. Not everything will immediately appear in your life, and nor would you want it too… If you woke up tomorrow with everything you ever wanted, but no idea of how it came about, then it’s not as fulfilling. It’s much more fun to have it slowly unfold like a wonderful masterpiece overtime.
Take your time and use the power of your mind/ thoughts carefully, where do you want to be 1 year from now, what about 5 years from now? Let’s start thinking big picture here and stop living for the weekend. Your life can be a wonderful adventure, or you can regret it. It’s really about how you choose to live in each moment of time that will determine how your life unfolds. All voices have the power to speak creation into existence.
