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!
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 Richby 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:
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
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:
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 Richby 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.
Alexi Panos was one of those people who just clicked with me instantly at the height of my spiritual awakening. I first saw her in The Abundance Factor Movie and was spellbound by her passion, energy, astoundingly honest story of immense highs, success (a top modelling career) and despairing lows (rape), and the way she now devotes her life to helping others.
Man, if I could ony find a woman like her! I’ll have to make do with interviews like this one with the wonderful Rick William on his YouTube channel. She talks about her crazy, inspirational life, spirituality and how any one of us can create an epic dream life too.
Alexi also has a great channel she still posts on occassionally – check it out!
