Law of Attraction and Manifestation
Top 5 Tips
The aim of this article is to share with you my Top 5 Tips for the
Law of Attraction and Manifestation.
My friends and I have been playing with the Law of Attraction for just over a year now, and have been able to manifest some fantastic changes in our lives. I’m talking
better jobs, more happiness and better relationships – for all of us - so if you’re interested in replicating this in your own life, read on.
I’ve read countless articles and books on how to manifest what you desire – and with the help of my friends, we have practiced and edited these ideas to come up with our Top 5 Tips for the Law of Attraction and Manifestation.
If you practice these tips – and it does take practice to become single minded about any issue, we are all still working on this – you will inevitably see some spooky synchronicities and stirring results in your own life!
Law of Attraction and Manifestation Tip 1:
Want It But Don't Need It
The Law of Attraction gives you what you want in life. Whatever you focus on most seems to find a way of showing up – normally when you’re least expecting it. Therefore, if you really really want something, and you need it more than anything else on the planet, it should just turn up almost overnight, no?
Not quite. Unfortunately, the universe didn’t make the Law quite that easy – I guess it wants us to sweat a bit before we get what we want. It wants us to learn – dare I say it – patience and gratitude.
I’ve discovered that the best way to succeed with the Law of Attraction – and with reaching goals in general – is to have no attachment to the outcome.
That means – know what you want, see yourself having it, by all means think about having it – but do not care about whether you get it or not.
Sheer lunacy, you scream! And I agree - this is so tricky to get the hang of – but I’ve nearly mastered it now. You just have to trust that between you, the Universe, your subconscious and any God you may believe in – between all of these magnificent entities – one of you will work out a way to get what you desire - without the need for you to panic and sweat and stress and worry all day long.
If you spend your days fretting that you won’t reach your goals, or if you really need something to “make me whole” – you’re in trouble. Big trouble. The Law of Attraction and Manifestations will abandon you! This is not what you want.
As such – set goals, visualise them, avoid putting out conflicting intentions – and pay no attention to the actual getting of your desires.
Believe me – the results will seem to magically take care of themselves.
Law of Attraction and Manifestation Tip 2:
Be Happy Without It
This follows on from the first tip. Simply put, you have to
learn to be happy now with what you already have.
This is so easy – all you have to do is show some bloody gratitude for your life!
18 months ago – I couldn’t do this. I was so thoroughly depressed that I thought I hated every aspect of my life. I now know that not only was this mindset horribly misjudged - but it was precisely what was keeping me down... talk about a vicious circle!
As soon as I began to say “thank you” for all the good – and bad – in my life, things began to improve.
First, I came out the other side of my depression and have never looked back. Work began to improve. New relationships came into my life. I appreciated my family and friends more than ever – and began to earn more cash. Life started to be fun again.
All this from merely stopping every night for 5 minutes to reflect on what I already had – and being grateful for it.
Try it – say thanks every night for everything in your life you are happy for. Send out some positive emotions for everything you love about living.
Strangely, almost the minute you begin to appreciate what you already have, you start to get more...
Law of Attraction and Manifestation Tip 3:
Know Why You Want It
Another thing I’ve learnt about the Law of Attraction and Manifestation is that you have to know – in some detail – exactly why you want to manifest this result into your life.
Setting goals that don’t speak to you at the deepest level – that don’t drive you to succeed – are likely to fail with the Law of Attraction. You simply won’t have the willpower to avoid putting out conflicting intentions.
Goals that you know inside and out do tend to come to fruition. If you imagine your successes in great detail in your mind – and know what
greater purpose they serve
– the results are far more likely to manifest with the LOA – mainly because you know them so well that you’ll be more prone to notice that you’re on the right path.
As such, make sure that you have
that really resonate with you and your purpose in life. It’s worth the time and effort!
Law of Attraction and Manifestation Tip 4:
Remember, Your Brain is Neutral!
Please remember that your brain is neutral – it provides you with whatever you think of most – regardless of whether you “want” that outcome or not.
So don’t spend your life thinking with great gusto and energy – “I do not want this... I want anything but this!” – as your brain, wise as it is, will mistakenly interpret these dark and disturbing images as a direct command to go and make it so!
Don’t take it personally – it’s just the way your brain functions. All brains do.
Look – it’s bloody hard work to take control of your brain. The quickest, easiest and most rewarding way to practice this – and to manifest what you want - is through creative visualisation.
If you visualise what you do want a few times a week, you will inevitably send out more good intentions than bad! This is really important for all of your personal development success. If you have tried visualisation and found it tricky, invest in some inexpensive
technology. This will relax you, quieten your mind and make your visualisations more vivid - and as such they are well worth the investment of $10-$20.

Law of Attraction and Manifestation Tip 5:
Don’t Forget to Act!
My final tip is a simple one – you must act and move towards your desires. Simply imagining them will not make them fall in your lap.
The main issue I had with the movie and book The Secret was that it made it seem as if manifesting with the Law of Attraction was as simple as just thinking about what you want... if only!
The Law of Attraction will provide you with synchronicities, contacts and ideas in relation to your goal... but that’s it. You have to choose to follow up on them. If there’s a big coincidence in your life – you have to go and explore it. If you have an idea – at the very least write it down!
Take baby steps – as long as you’re moving in the right direction. Take responsibility for your results – and make sure that you take action.
My personal belief is that the Law of Attraction and Manifestation somehow tips the cosmic odds in our favour – but it doesn’t do much more than that. It’s almost as if it flirts with us – showing us the way to proceed - but it's up to us to take the plunge.
So, by all means, play with the Law of Attraction and Manifestation – but remember that it is your responsibility to go and make the life you desire.
