Focusing on what you want…

Many people who contact about Law of Attraction coaching can’t understand why they’re not attracting what they want.  One question I like to ask people is “How often each day do you spend focusing on what you want, and why you want it?”  After a brief silence, they admit that it’s not very often.  This is part of the problem.  How can we expect to attract what we want if we’re not deliberately focusing on it every day?  Then they want to know how often they should focus on what they want.  Then I ask “How much do you want to attract “X” into your life?”  “X” could be more money, a wonderful relationship, a better job, etc.  They usually respond by saying they want to attract it in a big way.  So the answer to how often is VERY often!  We have to understand that we must focus on what we want, and why we want it as much as possible.  Most people probably focus more on the lack of not having whatever it is they want – that just keeps it from manifesting.  Though I teach my clients many processes to help them focus on what they want so they can attract it, thinking about what you want every day is key.  So whoever is reading this – I’m asking you “How often do you focus on what you are wanting?”

The Thought Meter . . .

It would be so cool if there was a thought meter that would count how many thoughts we have throughout an entire day.  To take it one step further, it would be even better if the meter would print out a report at the end of the day with two columns.  Column one would be called “Negative Thoughts” and column two would be called “Positive Thoughts.”  Then under each column it would print out what those thoughts were.  I have a feeling the “Negative Thought” column would have a lot more thoughts on it than the positive thought column!

When you stop to think about it, we’re always thinking about something. Are you usually thinking about questions like these:  why “something” went wrong? why don’t I have enough of “something”? why did this happen? why did that happen? why didn’t he do what he said he would do? why am I still doing what I don’t want to do? I’m afraid of what my future holds, I’m worried about “something”, will I ever fall in love? and on and on and on!

With all these negative thoughts running through your head all day long, it’s no surprise that all these thoughts mentioned above (and others along those lines) are still what’s manifesting for you.

The good news is that you can take control of your thoughts little by little, day by day, thought by thought.  One way to do this is that when you find yourself thinking a negative thought, literally ask yourself “what do I want?”  Once you know what you want (which is usually the opposite of the negative thought) and you start focusing on what you want, then eventually what you want will become what is.  The trick is that you have to practice asking yourself that question “What do I want?” over and over.  Eventually, with practice, more and more of your thoughts will be about what you want, instead of what you don’t want.  Oh what a joyous day that will be.

It sounds easy enough, but will you really do it?  I hope so!

Choose to have a great day.

Law of Attraction in Action…

I have a great personal “win” as a wonderful example of the Law of Attraction.

Out of the blue I was offered 2 tickets to see a popular musical tonight because the people who purchased them couldn’t go so they thought of me. That alone is a great “win”, but there’s more wins to tell.

When I pulled up to the theater they had several parking lots and each one was loaded with cars. I pulled into the closest lot to the theater and saw a long line of cars in front of me all heading towards the very back of the lot.

Suddenly the attendant who was in charge of that lot came over to my car and said “why don’t you take this spot” and pointed to the very first spot in the lot. Apparently they were saving it for someone but for whatever reason they never showed. So there I was offered the prime spot that was practically saved for me! What a wonderful “win.”

Once inside I was taken to my seat which was in the center, and in the orchestra section. To make it even better, it looked like every seat was taken except the seat directly next to me! The empty seat next to me gave me more leg room and made it much more comfortable.

How many wins can I have in one night? Apparently many!

When you live with an awareness of the Law of Attraction and choose to use the processes and techniques I teach my clients, nights like these are bound to happen!

I hope whoever reads about my “wins” tonight, also had some great wins today as well.

Wishing you “wins” every day.


Where are you going?

The other day on the train I found it very interesting that the conductor was only telling the passengers where the train WASN’T going instead of where it IS going. He was literally announcing “passengers, this train is not going to “X”, “Y”, and “Z”.

It made me think about the Law of Attraction because I bet most people spend most of their time thinking about where they’re not going in their lives. Of course when it comes to the Law of Attraction, the more someone thinks about where they’re not going, the more they’re not going to get anywhere they want to be – metaphorically speaking.

So it made me think how wonderful it would be if we all spent our time thinking of where we want to go in life. This could mean focusing on things like: the kind of job you want (instead of the one you don’t like), the kind of person you want to end up with (instead of complaining about all the ones who were wrong for you), how much money you want to have (instead of feeling bad about how much you don’t have), etc., etc.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all focused on where we want to go in life instead of on where we’re not going?

Choose to enjoy your day!

What are you focusing on?

The other day I was driving and was focusing on how beautiful the cloud formations were and how the sky was such a beautiful shade of blue.  I was also focusing on how nice the trees looked and how they decorated the highway.  While I was focusing on these beautiful aspects of the day I was feeling it too and getting more excited about life.  The interesting thing is that I was driving through a “bad” neighborhood with lots of ugly buildings and bad graffiti was written on the walls of the highway. However, I was choosing to focus on the positive aspects of the area which were raising my vibrations.  It was a great example to me of how important it is to CHOOSE to focus on the positive aspects of whatever it is your doing.  So I’ll ask whoever is reading this the same thing I ask my clients – “What are you focusing on?”
