Arielle: Her name is Gayle and many years ago she was advised by her astrologer to put her intentions for a soul mate into the world by coloring a mandala. She took a black and white mandala and a rainbow of multi-colored pencils and began declaring her intentions while she colored in a space on the mandala. She asked for things like: finding the perfect spiritual friend and lover to go through life with; a man who is kind to animals; someone who would appreciate her sense of humor; a man who would be accepting and open to her spiritual quest. For each intention she used a different color until the entire mandala became a multi-hued Technicolor testimony to the qualities she desired in her future partner. Within weeks of doing this she met her soul mate and they have now been married for more than twenty years.
The law of attraction manifests through your thoughts, by drawing to you thoughts and ideas of a similar kind, people who think like you, and also corresponding situations and circumstances. It is the law and power that brings together people of similar interests, who unite into various groups, such as political groups, sports teams, sports fans, fraternities, etc.
The law of attraction is a law that works behind the scenes. It is not obvious to most people. As humans, we tend to believe only that which we can directly see or measure. That which is completely beyond sight or direct measurement cannot be ‘proven’ by science. The law of attraction can only be proven through your own direct experience of working with the law. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that you APPLY what you learn in this instruction manual. Apply as much as you can until you start seeing direct evidence that confirms the reality of the law of attraction at work in your life. Note that I can only give you a description of how it works. I cannot ‘prove’ to you that it works. That is something you must do for yourself.
We all have an ideal life we would love to be living. It is possible, you just need to know how to materialize your dreams through the art of manifestation. It’s the art of bringing a thought through energy into reality and it is quite simple once you know the steps. These simple steps can help you facilitate reaching your goals and dreams. By consciously applying these 5 steps of manifestation into your life, you become aware of what shows up for you.
Receive. Receive what shows up and acknowledge to the universe your overwhelming gratitude for what you have manifested. Do not have expectations on how it shows up, just feel grateful when it does. I recommend practicing manifesting one thing at first and once it materializes, focus on another. Manifestation is a muscle that gets stronger, quicker and more powerful the more it is used. While you are focused on manifesting try and live a positive life, being kind, and serving others. Living this way helps attract more of what you are giving.
A five-second glance at the many visual representations of your dreams on your board is easy and quick. I keep mine in my walk-in closet and glance at it twice a day before I change my clothes. After I look at it, I picture the ‘laws of attraction' to be like giant gears in a clockwork that lurch into motion, arranging and aligning energetic paths of manifestation to me. Wherever you put your vision board, make sure you see it every day.
Many people have limiting beliefs which keep them from allowing abundance and happiness into their lives. If this describes you, realize that you must first change your limiting beliefs into thoughts that you are deserving, worthy, lovable, desirable, and capable—as well as smart enough, strong enough, attractive enough, rich enough, good enough, and “enough” in every other way that matters to you.
The technique of free association, actively utilized by Freud in dream interpretation, often begins with a psychoanalyst’s analysis of a specific dream symbol followed by the proceeding thought that automatically comes to a client’s mind. To further this investigative practice, Freud classified five separate processes that facilitate dream analysis.
My friend Kyle Gray taught me the power of praying to the angels. But, the idea is not to ask them for things. It’s to thank them for things in the present tense. So, an example would be: “Thank you, angels, for the money needed to pay for B-School manifesting in my life quickly, easily and now.” The angels (and lots of other helpers) are here to support you always. You just have to invite them to the party.
"[Manifesting destiny and the Law of Attraction are best explained by] the Law of Karma. It basically states that you will get negative if you think negative. For example, if you say, 'I never win anything' and you enter a raffle, you simply won’t win. You declared you won’t. If you focus on winning, and the person next to you puts out more positive energy than you do, you won’t win. The key is to give out the same energy you want back. If you want happiness, you look for the happiness and surround yourself with it and yours will grow," Estes explains.
When you protect yourself from disappointment, loneliness, heartache and failure, you often deny yourself the thing that you want the most. You swap risk for unhappiness. If you’re searching for love, for instance, you need to allow yourself to go on the journey. Someone out there is searching for you just as desperately as you’re searching for them. Maybe you already know them? Maybe they’re about to walk into your life (through the power of the law of attraction) just as soon as you make yourself energetically ready for them?
It’s difficult to free yourself completely from doubt, fear or feeling as though you don’t deserve something. Your instinct might try to combat those feelings using negative thoughts like, “Don’t be afraid” or even direct conflicts like, “You deserve this.” Unfortunately, such methods are ineffective and simply don’t work because they reinforce negative thoughts and feelings.
I have already been working with the law of attraction for 3 years. I know it works, and it is incredible. However, there are things out of our control sometimes, that can interfere with the tune-in feeling, which can throw us out of balance, finding it hard to connect with the law of attraction again. I personally find it refreshing and reassuring to have good reads on the subject, just like this book, and be able to have an emotional reminder to connect with the law of attraction again. It is an easy read, that I found great to read in the morning to start my day in the best way possible.
I do not claim to have all of those things either. However, I do have most of the things that I described and I managed to attain them through my value-based goals, plans, process-visualizations, and inspired action. I didn't ask the universe for it, you might say that the universe knew, but I was driven to get these things. I didn't act or pretend like I already had them.
From the moment we’re born, every single one of us receives societal programming: parental, media, peer. Very few of us have a true idea of what our authentic essence is and what it truly desires to thrive. Manifesting starts with taking deep inventory of that programming we’re raised with, then getting into your authentic essence and asking yourself what you truly want—and, finally, breaking the mold of what limits you from achieving that.
