Arielle: Living as if means stepping outside of your current reality and stepping into the reality you wish to be true. It’s when your daily actions reflect and are congruent with your belief that your soul mate exists and is already yours. The best example of this was revealed to me by a famous actress. Once she became clear that she was ready to share her life with someone, she began living as if that person were already a part of her life. She would play music she imagined he would enjoy; she wore pretty nightgowns to bed instead of her typical T-shirt and sweats. Every morning she would feel that they were waking up and starting their day together, and every night at dinner she would light candles and set a place for him at the table. According to this actress, he eventually arrived. She sent a clear message to the Universe, and the Universe delivered. Now you may not be willing to set a table for two each night when you have dinner, but start to consider what you could do to generate the feeling that you are already sharing your life with your beloved. For example, buy tickets to a concert or play that is several months away, holding the intention that you will attend it with a hot date. Or the next time you are shopping for greeting cards, pick up a couple that would be fitting to give to your beloved on a birthday or to celebrate your anniversary, knowing that sometime soon that day will be here.
Arielle: Yes, I do and I believe that with a little focused time and energy everyone can find theirs. While most people think of a soul mate in romantic terms, I also believe that there are other kinds of soul mate relationships. For instance, look at the friendship and connection that Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King share. I would definitely call that a soul mate relationship. I also believe you can have pets that connect with you on such a deep level that they deserve to be called soul mates.
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.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for the Simple Truth about life, why we are where we are, why things happen and don't happen and most of all for those seeking to Change their lives for the better. I have studied with Beau for 6 months now and all the books he writes are simp!e to understand if you choose to accept the truth about how this Universe works and how we can work with it instead of striving against it's laws. Great read and highly recommended.
Another way to release the past is to get rid of old stuff you don't need. Sometimes, things we've had with us during negative times in our life pick up negative energy. Other changes to your living space can help prepare you for the future. For example, if you want to attract love, you'll want to leave space in your bed by moving stuffed animals out of the way and put away any photos or belongings of your ex. Out with the old, in with the new!

Feel it. Feel the way you will now after receiving your wish. You must act, speak, and think as if you are receiving it now. This is actually the most important, powerful step in using the Law of Attraction because this is where it starts working, and sometimes if you do this you don't feel like you need it anymore because you feel like you already have it! Therefore, the universe will manifest this thought and feeling, and you will receive it.
I worked with a professional footballer once. He was getting very nervous about shooting goals. He kept missing even though he was very talented. I insisted that he kept watching himself on TV scoring goals and burned that image into his consciousness. I didn’t want him thinking about anything else. Every time he had a negative thought he was to switch that picture, either on the TV or on the TV in his mind. And he was to surround the thought with positive emotions of love and respect for himself.
The Law of Attraction can be understood by understanding that ‘like attracts like'. What this means is that whether we realize it or not, we are responsible for bringing both positive and negative influences into our lives. A key part of the Law of Attraction is understanding that where you place your focus can have an intense impact on what happens to you. If you spend your days wallowing in regrets about the past or fears of the future, you’ll likely see more negativity appearing, but if you look for the silver lining in every experience then you’ll soon start to see positivity surrounding you every day. Therefore, the Law of Attraction encourages you to see that you have the freedom to take control of how your future develops, shaping it in the ways you choose.
Whatever you want already exists in your imagination, doesn’t it? Therefore it is just as real as any other idea you have ever had that came to fruition. Play with the belief that what you want is already waiting for you. You’ve placed the order, now you’re on your way to pick it up. What have you got to lose? After all, you don’t “need” what you desire, it’s just for fun.
