A number of “alternative” approaches to creating a better life have all moved their way into mainstream America — and around the globe.
- A Course in Miracles
- The Law of Attraction
- Tapping for Success with EFT
And yet, for most of us, the concepts of how to apply them to your own life can be daunting, overwhelming and down right confusing.
Maybe you have tried to implement one or more of the above into your daily practices, yet the results you desired never manifested in your life, leaving you wondering, “what did I do wrong?!!”
Or maybe you only partially manifested what you were seeking to create, which left you — again — wondering, “why can’t I have what I want??”
How to create the life you want
The reason many never fully reach their potential for manifesting their desires is simple.
Often times the lack of clarity of what you WANT is present. In other words, it is common to focus upon what you don’t want, rather than on what you DO want!
Ask your Self this question when something happens or doesn’t happen the way you wanted it to…
“How many times have I silently or verbally made this statement – at least I know what I DON’T want now! Or here’s another example showing me, again, what I DON’T want!”
Can you see how the focus is placed upon what you Don’t want, versus what you do want?
Let’s look at 3 very simple steps you can implement right away, to make that shift from what you Don’t want, to what you DO!
Step 1 – What do you want?
Get clear about what it is you want!
It is, yet for most, it can be their greatest struggle. As you spend time contemplating about what it is you truly desire, all those “don’ts” bubble up to the surface. Look at each one as it rises and ask the question, “Does this move me one step closer to the realization of what I want or is it keeping me blocked or stuck where I am?”
Be creative with your process, get in touch with your desires.
Be playful with the process.
One of my own favorite questions is “What turns you on the most, what are you so passionate about that you can’t stop talking to others about?”
Really get in touch with and feel that fire. Get out your notebook and just start writing it all out.
Don’t worry about not making sense:
- no Edits
- no Judgments
- just write, play and have fun with it
Step 2 – Develop a plan
Develop a plan of action.
You’ve done some digging to discover what you truly desire, now it’s time to create your action plan.
The new paradigm ways of taking action including praying, meditating, using positive affirmations and other more receptive methods to create. These are each, in their own rights, very powerful means of manifesting.
Yet, they are receptive energies, it is Movement which is required to Manifest!
What you want — wants you, but it will not simply fall into your lap! The sky won’t open and rain upon you that which you want!
This is the step where many fail to realize their dreams, desires and wishes! The movie The Secret brought into reality the basic principles of the Universal Laws, namely, the Law of Attraction. Yet in many ways this only served to confuse most people.
It is this action step where you design your own transformational map from where you are to where you want to be, want to have, want to create. Take the time to sit with what flowed from you in the first step, then come up with creative ways you can take action steps.
Again, make it Fun for you!
If the steps you take feel like work or feel like a chore you must do, will you follow through? Of course you won’t!! Make it fun, stoke the embers and fuel your fire.
Step 3 – Connect with your higher purpose
If you are practicing spirituality, chances are you spend a lot of your time, your spiritual energy on your personal growth and development.
Connecting with your Higher Self, raising your own energetic frequency as you more fully step into a place of Unconditional love and Forgiveness. This is a great place to be! You may be in your own state of euphoria, but what happens is you are no longer grounded.
In order to manifest anything you need to be grounded in physical reality.
This IS key!
This is the secret that has been withheld from many of the teaching of the Law of Attraction! It is through this grounding, this connection to the Earth Mother energies, that the express, Heaven on Earth, becomes your reality!
As you ground your energies with the Earth energies, you become balanced, whole and healed. It is through the Earth Mother that we receive nourishment and are nurtured. Here you plant the seed of each desire, each want deep within the Earth. It becomes nourished through the soil as well as from the water of rain and nurtured by the rays of the sun.
You know that the seed you planted is growing, yet you cannot see it’s progress. It is at this point that many give up because what they want hasn’t yet manifested. If you take a moment during this phase and be still, be patient, while maintaining faith, you will soon see the first sign of life as it breaks open the crust of the Earth layer!
Try a little exercise.
Experiment with something small, something that you REALLY want. It can be anything….but it must be something you’ve always wanted and follow these 3 steps with an open mind and open heart.
Give your Self Permission to have what you want!!
It takes practice and conditioning, but, IF you do the work you WILL see the results… this IS law.
