I’m a firm believer of the Law of Attraction. No, I’m not necessarily talking about the rules behind flirting and/or attracting another. However, that too can be achieved.
In this posting I am speaking about the theory that one’s future is built by their thoughts, beliefs, and actions. In other words, you attract the things you want and the things you don’t want out of life. So, wouldn’t it be best to focus on attracting those that you want? If you want wealth…attract it. If you want health…attract it. Whatever you want… attract it.
In fact, not too long ago a book and movie was created on this very topic…The Secret. Perhaps you heard of it. While the outcome is profound, the concept is pretty simple, a little too simple, if you ask me. All your dreams, desires, and wishes can be created by three easy steps: Ask, Believe, and Receive.
1. Ask – Know exactly what you want and ask for it.
2. Believe – Truly believe, without a doubt, what you are asking for will be yours.
3. Receive – You know what you want, you know you’ll have it, now do what it takes to get it. Take actions and advantages of opportunities to reach your goals.
I think one of the best tools to use to attract what you want is a wishing board aka life map, dream board, desire board, etc. Imagine having a visual of all the things you desire. That’s a wishing board. It’s a collage of all the words, images, and things that speak to you, evoking feelings of desire, motivations, and empowerment. Oprah has a good article on how to create such a tool at http://www.oprah.com/spirit/Create-Your-Own-Life-Map/1. But in short, all you need to do is cut out images and words/phrases (i.e. out of a magazine) of all the things and goals you want to accomplish or get out of life…all the thing things you are “asking”. Then, glue these cutouts on a large piece of board so that you can view and “believe” that soon enough you’ll “receive” it.
Just the act of creating such a board can be life changing. In fact, this is one of the exercises I love doing with my clients, creating such a board and identifying what the cutouts mean and how to achieve them. As such, if you are in need of a little guidance and interpretation, please feel free to shoot me an email: LBrown@ConsciousStrategies.com .
