You Must First BE What You Want
Many people find out about the Law of Attraction when they are struggling to build a life that is truly worthy of them. They they quickly become frustrated at their lack of progress. Often this is simply because they have gotten the order of manifestation wrong. Simply put, the Law of Attraction is mastering the concept that you must first BE what you want, then DO what is necessary to achieve it, so that you can HAVE your desire.
One of the biggest problems people find when they try to use the Law of Attraction for the first time is resistance from the outside world. It seems that no matter what they do the world pushes against them. It appears that the harder they strive for their desires the more the world pushes back. They then fall into the trap of blaming the world for their woes. This is a disastrous mindset to have if you wish to successfully and consciously employ the Law of Attraction to your advantage.
Mahatma Gandhi, the great Indian leader who peacefully freed his country from British rule, told his followers, “become the change you want to see in the world.” These words are just as true today as they were when this wise man walked the planet. In order to have what you want, you must be willing to do what is necessary to achieve it. This can only be achieved when you become the very thing you want!
Let me explain this in a little more detail. The Law of Attraction can bring you anything and everything you want. In fact, anything you can hold in mind can be yours, if you follow the rules of this Universal Law.
Trying to change other people or change the world is the wrong approach to achieving your dreams. You must change yourself. By holding in mind the things you want, and believing that it is truly possible for you to have them, you will immediately begin to attract them. However, if you wish to change the world or other people, you are holding in mind the very things you do not want. You are affirming to yourself that things are not OK the way they are. The Law of Attraction immediately kicks in and you begin to attract more of those things.
By accepting the world and other people the way they are you will begin to embrace the moment and unleash your true power to create. You cannot change the world and you cannot change others, but you can change yourself. This is where your true power lies. When you change yourself internally the world around you begins to change as you start to attract people, circumstances, situations and physical objects that reflect your changed beliefs, attitude, thoughts and feelings.
This is why it is important to hold on to an attitude of gratitude for the things you already have. You can even be grateful for where you are in life right now, no matter how bad it is, because this is the launching platform for your new improved life. Start from where you are. Wherever you are in life it is the right place for you right now. Just be satisfied to begin from where you are and you will soon get to where you want to go.
Flex Your Manifestation Muscles!
Once you have identified the things in life you wish to have, begin to think of them often. Imagine that you are already in possession of them. This is you becoming at one with your desire. Once you can hold your desire in mind and see, feel and accept that you are in possession of it, you have become your future vision. This is your desire. Look at children, they are excellent at this. It is a natural state of mind and not as hard to achieve as you may imagine. Just allow yourself to do it. Have fun and play with your internal vision. Enjoy it!
Be flexible enough to allow the Universe to deliver these things to you as it sees fit. However, some action is required! Be prepared to take some steps towards your goal. No matter how small or insignificant these steps are, take at least some action everyday that will bring you closer to your desires. Try writing a journal for just 5 minutes every morning, envisioning your perfect day, how you’ll feel eating a wonderful dinner, or who you might meet on your daily dog walk!
You will soon find that as you take even small steps towards your desires and stay true to your inner vision the Universe will rush to meet you. Coincidences will occur and you will find opportunities are presented to you. As long as you are generating positive emotions around your internal vision the action needed by you will be pleasurable and feel natural.
So remember, BE what you desire, Then DO what you have to in order to bring you closer to those desires and then you will HAVE everything you want!
