Top 10 Reasons Why You Just Messed Up The Law Of Attraction

Aug 18, 2007
You have just learnt about The Law of Attraction. You are genuinely really excited because for the first time you see a solution for improving your life and getting what you want.

So you whole-heartedly throw yourself into it. You get yourself a vision board and start visualizing the stuff that you want. Then after a few days or weeks you start to wonder, "Hey wait a minute. Is this working? Where is my stuff? Why isn't it here yet?"

If you have been experiencing thoughts like this, the following list is a collection of common issues that people fall into when they first begin to use The Law of Attraction.

1. You Are Not Profoundly And Consistently Grateful

Gratitude is perhaps the most important factor in using the Law of Attraction. It is the means of communicating your desires to the universe.

A suggestion I have to help you achieve profound and consistent gratitude is to start a DAILY gratitude journal. In the evenings, just think about your day and simply list down everything you were grateful for.

Reflect upon it, get into that feeling of gratitude and do it EVERYDAY. Your line of communication to the universe will improve.

2. You Are Not Clear On Exactly What You Want

Being unclear by saying "I want my life to be better" or "I want more money? doesn't work. You must see what you want vividly in your mind.

So lets assume you want more money. Write down a note with A) The details of the "more money", the exact amount, type of money, currency. B) The date when you want to receive the money. C) What value you are giving in return for that money. D) Put it in the present tense and have "I am so happy and grateful now that" before it.

Looking like - I am so happy and grateful now that I receive an additional US$1,500 of rental income per month, which was first received on the 1st of August 2007, for renting out my studio apartment on Chester Street.

3. You're Using The Law With A "I Will Give It A Try" Attitude

It is important to understand why you are feeling this way. For the most part I think it is because people are fearful. That if it doesn't work, you are able to rationalize why. Which in this case would be "Hey I didn't really try, that's why it didn't work".

Building up your faith by better understanding how the Law of Attraction works. Do it by reading testimonials of others using the law successfully. Better understanding will move you forward more confidently.

4. You Have Some Old Baggage

When you begin to use the law you will experience different degrees of mental friction. This is normal because it takes time to adopt new thought patterns.

Immerse yourself in materials on the law. Read books on the topic. Listen to relevant audio CDs. Watch DVDs about the Law of Attraction. Then start by attracting things that cause you less mental friction. Once you begin to habituate improved thought patterns and your confidence grows, attraction becomes easier.

5. You Want It So, So Bad

You don't want to become so "INTO" getting the "Thing" that you want, that you become desperate and frustrated in the process. The attraction of what you want is supposed to be a wonderful and joyous experience.

Put your thoughts of what you want out to there. Then remember to be calm and relaxed. Your state of mind should be similar to that of being in love. You can't see it or touch it. But you can feel it and you know it's there.

6. You Are Taking The Wrong Kind Of Action

The wrong kind of action is where you are forcing an action to move forward. By forcing it you are showing a lack of faith in the law. Don't rush it. Whatever you want is coming to you always. And it will come at the right time for you.

The correct type of action will feel right to you. It is as if a "Light Bulb" went off and you just had that "Eureka" moment. It will feel quite natural and effortless. Follow your intuition towards the correct action required.

7, 8, & 9. You Forgot To Be Grateful

Yup, gratitude is pretty important. And deserves 3 spots on the list as a reminder because it is common to be so caught up during the day to forget to be grateful sometimes.

One exercise you can do at any time is just focus on an item in your immediate surrounding. Say you are in your car and you focus on the traffic light. Mentally just list how grateful you are about it, "It keeps traffic in order, it helps keeps me safe". Then jump to another item and do the same, say the road, "It helps me get to destinations, I get to where I want faster" etc.

This knock-on gratitude affect really lifts your spirits. And you will be surprised at what you will be grateful about.

10. You Are Not Enjoying The Journey

Whatever time it takes to attract what you want there will be a journey. It will hold good, great, bad and maybe even really bad times. But what is important overall is that you enjoy the journey.

It is easy enough to enjoy the good times. But how do you appreciate the bad times. First understand without the bad times you would not be able to recognize and/or appreciate the good times. So they are necessary.

Realize a bad thing can also lead you forward. Say to yourself "ok bad thing, what are you here to teach me?" Identify that lesson, learn from it and move on. When you do, you move forward as a stronger individual and most definitely a step closer to what you want. And that is something to be happy about.
