How to Use the Law of Attraction: A Simple Guide!

View from my bedroom in Koh Samui, Thailand – in house and life I manifested using the law of attraction.

We humans are weird folk. We have a tendenacy to over-complicate EVERYTHING! In fact, we are hard wired to over-analyse, look for patterns (which often aren’t even there) and display cynicism at anything which appears too easy.

But the further I go down the rabbit hole of this awakening I’ve experienced the last 2 years, the more I realise just how crazy we are as a species! The simplest, most obvious answer is often the one most of us overlook. This is why I believe firmly in always trying to simplify EVERYTHING.

So this is my simple guide on how to use the Law of Attraction: an often misunderstaood concept which many people (inclusing those actually TEACHING it!) make waaaaaayyyy too complicated!

How to Write a Law of Attraction Manifesting Big Vision Statement!

For the past few weeks, I have started reading a law of attraction statement for manifesting my big visions in life. I got this idea from the book which changed my life, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

In the book, he recommends reading out this statement, which are your big goals for the future, first thing in the morning and last thing before you go to sleep at night. That’s because our brains are in a  theta brainwave state at these moments, making them more susceptible to anything we might feed them.

Our subconscious mind (which remember, controls 95-99% of what we do on a daily basis!) is more open to suggestion in the theta state and if we can access this part of our mind, we can change our beliefs, habits and ultimately, our life.

So here is my statement which I have handwritten on paper. I begin with my short-term goals: what I would like to achieve in the next few months:

Yoga Retreat Thailand: My Anxiety Returns! (Part 2)

View from Vikasa Life Cafe of Vikasa Yoga Retreat, Koh Samui, Thailand

 

In part 1, I told the story of the beginning of my new life (created using the law of attraction) in Thailand. I now live a digital nomad lifestyle where I intend to travel and only do work that I love, after many years of struggle and pain both with and recovering from, anxiety.

My first week, I took part in a yoga retreat in Thailand, hosted and run by Brett Moran, who has been a huge inspiration to me during my spiritual awakening of the past 2 years, with his YouTube vlogs. But this retreat brought up some new issues. Many people on the retreat, if not everyone, found emotions creeping to the fore and tears were shed on several occasions, but I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect I’d be one of those people!

I was only on the retreat because I’m working with Brett as part of his team. Twinned with the fact I honestly thought I was mentally in a great place for the first time any many, many years (the best place I’d ever been, actually!), meant I really didn’t think I had any issues still lurking.

Over the past 2 years, I have done so much self-development work, almost every day, working through complex limiting beliefs and all the other shit which comes with an anxiety disorder and a lack of confidence, that the last thing I thought I needed help with was my self-esteem!

Yet there I was, sat up in bed on my fourth night in a row with barely an hour of sleep, at 2am, sobbing gratuitously. And it wasn’t just the lack of shuteye. I had no problem getting to sleep, as I was out like a light every single evening, after tough yoga sessions and intense heat. But I would wake up after an hour every time, because my mind was racing. Read more

Yoga Retreat Thailand: My Experience (Part 1)

And so my new life (created using the Law of Attraction, oh yes my friends!) has begun!

I’ve moved to Thailand and am now beginning my dream life, doing work I love, travelling to exotic locations and spending time with beautiful people who are also on the same journey of awakening and inspiring others to raise their consciousness and improve their lives.

Yep, all that woo-woo garbage!

During my very first week on my tropical island paradise, I took part in a yoga and transformational retreat, hosted by my mentor, YouTube and Instagram star and now housemate (yep, you heard right!) Brett Moran from Brett Moran TV!

It was my first experience of anything like this but I was looking forward to it tremendously. Yes, 2-3 years ago, I would have laughed at this kind of spiritual, head in the clouds, airy-fairy nonsense, but as I’ve awakened, I now realise that this kind of thing can change lives and yes indeed, the world.

No bullshit.

But I have to say, it didn’t quite go as I’d planned………….

Law of Attraction Manifesting: My ENORMOUS Goals for 2018 and Beyond!

person-sat on-mountains-looking-at-sunset-over-canyon

I’ve been on this path of personal transformation, awakening, enlightenment, creating my dream life, whatever the hell you want to call it, for 2 years now, since my recovery from anxiety.

Law of Attraction manifesting is the key technique I now use to create that dream life BUT you can’t create anything if you don’t have a plan – that means knowing what you want and setting ENORMOUS goals (sorry but small won’t cut it!!).

A year ago, my manifestation goals were: a trendy apartment in a shit-hot area of London, a BMW Z4 (in silver!), a close group of friends and a fuck-tonne of money from my financial trading job.

But things have shifted radically from what I originally wanted

After I began this blog in 2017 (I’m 1-year-old, happy birthday to meeeee!!) strange things started to materialise:

Writing work (my TRUE passion)

New friendships with people I NEVER thought I’d be friends with!

Opportunities to make BIG money.

And the offer of a lifetime to work with a YouTube mentor of mine in Thailand!

This began to shift my belief of what was possible. I knew for sure, the law of attraction was real and working its magic. So I felt, why not dream bigger?

Depression and Anxiety Are NOT Chemical Imbalances (Joe Rogan Interview with Johann Hari)

I’m a huge fan of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and this is the most interesting one to date, in my opinion. He chats with Johann Hari about his new book Lost Connections, which is basically about the modern day epidemic of anxiety and depression.

Obviously, with me spending the majority of my life under the scourge of both depression and anxiety, I was transfixed by these 2 hours! (Read about how I beat anxiety here.)

Hari’s research basically agrees with what I’ve written on this blog previously that neither anxiety or depression is down to a chemical imbalance.

Mental health problems are primarily caused by LIFE – not by biology. A fascinating stat in this podcast was that 87% of people don’t like their work – the thing they spend most time doing.

To me, the correlation is obvious: we are unhappy with life and THIS causes mental health  problems.

Unfortunately, our Western society has (yet again!) got everything arse-about-face! This is a SOCIETAL problem. Not biological. Not individual.

We are not a machine with broken parts, we are a human with unmet needs. Psychological needs, such as a purpose in life and love.

We don’t have to have a culture that deadens people, controls or isolates them, which is what we currently have. It’s about reconnection. That is what will fix these epidemics.

This is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard and Rogan and Hari touch on issues wider than just depression and anxiety – it’s about LIFE and how most of the Western world has been doing the wrong things for decades and it’s why we now see epidemics of unhappiness, manifesting as depression, anxiety, suicide, addiction and separation.

The great thing about Hari’s research though, is that there are small cases that point to successful answers, most of which involve connection, love and compassion, rather than what is too often the case – blame, isolation and deadening with drugs.

I haven’t read the book yet but it has great ratings on Amazon. This podcast is a must-watch though.

What They Don’t Tell You in “The Secret” (The Secret You Need to Know!)

red-haired-girl-with-lights-in-hands

I’ve done A LOT of Law of Attraction (LOA) research over the past 2 years. I’ve devoted hundreds of hours to this topic, in my quest to fully understand and use it to improve my life.

What I’ve noticed is that people over-complicate it – especially when it comes to the book The Secret.

This is something we humans are wired to do anyway. It’s why we constantly look for patterns when patterns aren’t there. It’s why we analyse things in excruciating detail and dissect them to find answers. Most of the time however, in my opinion, the answer is simple and staring us in the face already!

I think it’s because we get suspicious when something seems too easy.

We think life is tough, that we have to work our butt off to get the good things, so we are conditioned to view anything that gives us what we want easily, with suspicion. Instead, we try to disprove it, look for holes in the theory, find alternative ways which make more sense to us.

This is why you will see people all over the internet giving out “tips” on how to manifest properly or big headlines shouting:

“What they didn’t tell you in The Secret!“.

Here’s the real secret…………..

Bob Proctor: Understanding the Law of Attraction (video)

Bob Proctor is the man.

When it comes to the Law of Attraction, NO ONE knows more about it than this guy (wait till you hear how old he is, at the end of the video!)

Most of his life has been devoted to teaching it. He began by learning about it from the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (although this book doesn’t give it the name “LOA”, it lays out the exact same processes of manifesting which the modern day LOA attempts to explain).

This is the same book I began my spiritual journey with, of course!

From here, he turned his life around from a penniless drunk into a millionnaire within a couple of years!

Since then, he’s devoted his life to working out exactly how he managed this so he could teach it to others.

Since his 2006 appearance on The Secret, he’s now regarded as the leading expert in the LOA. I listened to a lot of Proctor and read his book You Were Born Rich, during my year of awakening in 2016 and no one exlains the LOA better, in my opinion.

So here he is, doing exactly that!

Book Review: Crushing It! by Gary Vaynerchuk (How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Businesses)

Crushing It! Book Cover

Looking for a good kick up the ass when it comes to getting the work-life you want?

Need some hard-hitting, no bullshit, tell-it-as-it-is motivation?

Want to grow your business/career into something you love but are stuck?

Then Crushing It! is THE book you need to own!

Through 2017, Gary Vaynerchuk (a.k.a. Gary Vee) was undoubtedly the person who had the most influence on my personal development.

If 2016 had been all about spirituality, the quantum universe, discovering the power within, 2017 was all about taking decisive action, foot firmly in reality and getting the hands dirty – and there’s no one out there currently, in my opinion, who encapsulates this message better than Gary Vee.

If it weren’t for him, I quite possibly wouldn’t have even started this blog – I certainly wouldn’t have grown it as much as I have. And I DEFINITELY wouldn’t be going to Thailand next month! Because without him saying we should never be afraid to tap up influencers, even when we are just starting out, I would not have got in touch with Brett Moran for months or even YEARS!
