When it comes to the law of attraction, I’m neither a staunch resister or a dreamy-eyed fan boy. While I’ve used it with some success, I refrain from using my vibration as a reference point for everything in my life. This is mainly due to lack of experience. As time goes on, I’ll probably move either towards or away from intention manifestation (I suspect towards), but in the meantime, even in my state of semi-doubt, I know this: the law of attraction is powerful.
There are a lot of reasons why, but I’m not going to go into all that here. I’m going to give you advice that, when I first read it, blew my mind with its simplicity and profundity.
“In order to manifest something, you have to feel exactly as though you would if you already had it, even if you don’t have it yet.”
The advice is a direct quote straight from the mouth (hands) of Melody, one of my favorite law of attraction bloggers. Click the link to go directly to the article with the quote.
I want to delve farther into exactly what Melody is saying, and why it makes so much sense, even in areas that you wouldn’t suspect.
The Universe Obeys Your Vibration
And by your vibration, I mean the sum total of your attitudes, thoughts, beliefs, and so on. The truth is, it’s not like you’re issuing a command to the universe when you sit down to do some law of attraction work – you’re just changing what you are causing to be manifested – and we’re always manifesting. It’s called a law for a reason.
Think about the law of gravity, which, at least on this planet, means that things fall towards the ground at 9.81 m² per second, every single time. There are no exceptions. The law of attraction is very much the same. Your vibration will determine exactly what type of “chance” occurrences and opportunities come into your life, every single time.
That’s why it’s so important to watch all the crap that goes on in your head, or at least to check in on a regular basis and see what you are creating. And of course, that’s why Melody’s quote makes so much sense.
Why Lying to Yourself Is a Wonderful Idea
Haha, well, you’re not exactly lying to yourself – you’re just pretending that you have everything you want right now, in this moment. So it’s more of a brief delusion, but man is it powerful. Why? I’m glad you asked.
Basically, by feeling exactly as you would if you already had what you want, you are aligning all of your energy up at once towards the thing you want, which challenges all of your old beliefs in the process, which reprograms your mind and vibration in general
As you can probably already see, this is not only a powerful intention manifestation system, but a powerful psychological one as well. Doing this will lead to behavior change faster than just about anything else I know. In addition, it retrains your mind (and vibration) so well that the universe can’t help but give you what your new vibe attracts.
So, without further ado, here’s the most effective way to lie to yourself.
Visualize Your Future Success in Your Mind Now
Oddly enough, this is what I described in my article about the book Think and Grow Rich. It’s amazing how many different things seem to click and fit together in the personal development world, even when they are from drastically different sources.
So, you’re just going to sit down and use your imagination. But this requires your active participation. Remember the quote – you really need to feel like you are already living the life of your dreams. To do that, try asking yourself some of these questions during your visualization:
- How does it feel to see various aspects of my goal coming true in my imagination?
- How do I feel when I know that I am literally creating that reality right now?
- How does having everything I want make me feel?
- How does my vibration right now differ from the vibration that I usually have?
Pay particular attention to that last question. That’s pretty much the law of attraction in a nutshell. Your life is the sum total of what your vibrational frequency brings to you. When you’re imagining all your dreams coming true, you are becoming attuned to that new vibration. The difference between your old and new vibe is the difference between your old and new life. Never forget it.
Now it’s time to visualize! Just remember to really believe that you already have what you want. That will take care of everything else, and more.
