For people just beginning to get familiar with the law of attraction, the way to participate correctly is more likely than not their biggest issue. There’s a handful of information out there in bookstores and on the Internet about the law of attraction, thinking positive and manifesting abundance. Still, there might be plenty of people using these ideas who still might not feel like they are getting anywhere. You may be one of these people.
There are a few things you may want to understand if you would like to harness the law of attraction.
1. You’re Doing it Constantly
If you do not already know this, let's point out that you are, every moment, living through and associating with the law of attraction. Your focus, thoughts and feelings always attract more of the same things along with environment. The conflict is that if you are not consciously and continuously choosing and focusing your thoughts, feelings and desire, then you are attracting by default. If you are currently not particularly enjoying what shows up in your day to day life, then the next thing you might want to consider doing is...
2. Break your mind patterns
When it comes to the mind, and specifically the over-developed, psyche-driven ego mind, the idea of breaking your mind patterns is more than ideal. The ego mind that goes on unconscious and rambling tangents of doubt, criticism, worry and fear is obnoxiously out of control. It is the main barrier that’s keeping you from consciously participating in the law of attraction.
Bringing in focused awareness to your own subconscious daily habits of thought patterns can be attained by meditation and deep breathing. You can also easily stop what you are doing every hour or so and focus all or your attention on what you are thinking about in that moment. Next observe, become mindful and aware of your tendencies of thought patterns. These insights should tell you a lot about yourself and how to refocus your thinking patterns.
3. Follow your gut instinct
Once you begin to get the hang of the idea of conscious awareness, you will have the ability to distinguish between intuitive guidance and mental chit-chat. Your gut instincts are what you want to listen to, but as long as your ego-mind is in control and making all of that noise, it can then be tough to feel and hear what your more knowledgeable self is attempting to tell you.
4. Take action right away
Resolving to take action on inner guidance is the absolute key to changing. It might feel frightening or even downright ridiculous sometimes, but when you are able to feel the "yes" about something, hesitating for one more minute is the very last thing you want to do. Maybe your gut instinct tells you to go out and get errands done, when you previously planned to stay at home. You go out to do the errands and end up running into an old buddy who happens to know somebody that has just the thing (key information, a job offer, the perfect date) that you have been really wanting to attract.
You cannot always know exactly how you are going to get what you want. Many times, the results of continuously using the law of attraction arrive in certain ways that we could not possibly have imagined. This is why the action that you take based on your gut instincts rather than on rational, over-analyzed choice, is so very important.
