Utilizing The Law of Attraction
by Jack Canfield
law of attraction states that you will attract into your life--whether
wanted or unwanted--whatever you give your energy, focus, and attention
You are constantly giving
off vibrations of energy when you think and feel. These vibrations can
be picked up and received by other people. That's why people say,
"he has good vibes," or "he gives off bad vibes."
You are constantly giving off vibrations -- literally!
If you're feeling excited,
enthusiastic, passionate, happy, joyful, loving, appreciative, abundant,
prosperous, relaxed and peaceful, you are giving off positive
On the other hand, if you're
feeling bored, anxious, worried, confused, sad, lonely, hurt, angry,
resentful, guilty, disappointed, frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed out,
or depressed, then you are giving off negative vibrations.
The law of attraction
states that the universe responds to whatever you are offering -- by
giving you more of whatever you are vibrating. It doesn't care whether
it is good for you or not; it simply responds to your vibration.
If you saw the film The
Secret, you saw this explained in great detail.
The problem is that most
of the time, you are not aware of what vibration you are offering. You
are simply responding to things outside of you--current events, the
news, how people treat you, the stock market, how much money you are
making, how your children are doing in school, whether or not your
favorite sports team wins--and then having a feeling that is either
positive or negative.
When you are simply
responding unconsciously to what happens around you, you tend to stay
"stuck" in your current condition. This is why most
people's lives never seem to change very much. They get stuck in a
repeating cycle of recreating the same reality over and over by the
vibration they are sending out.
It works like this...
First you observe what you currently have and are currently receiving in
your life. You call this your "reality." You respond to what
you observe with a feeling, positive or negative, which then gives off
that vibration to the universe. The law of attraction then responds to
this vibration and brings you more of what you were vibrating. This
keeps the cycle going over and over, until you choose to change it
through the exertion of your will. You are a victim of your lack of
awareness of the law of attraction.
The Process of
It is possible to get out of
this vicious cycle and create what you want instead of continually
recreating what you already have. It is a simple, three-step process
that you can begin immediately.
If you've been implementing
the action steps I coach you through in The KEY to Living the Law of
Attraction, you have already begun this process.
Step 1: Identify what you
truly desire & eliminate the negative
It is important to focus on
what you want rather than what you don't want. You must state it in the
positive and filter out the words don't, not and no. Remember, your mind
works in pictures and if you say I don't want to be mad, you are
creating the picture and thus the vibration of being mad. You must
create the opposite of what you don't want.
Step 2: Raise your
Your job in stage two is to
create a vibrational match for that which you say you want to have. How
would you be feeling if you already had those things--the perfect job,
the perfect relationship, the amount of money that you want to have?
Your job is to identify what
makes you feel good and do more of it, then learn not to tolerate your
Affirmations are an
important component in raising your vibrational level to what it is you
want. Remember, the law of attraction does not respond to the words
you use or the thoughts you think. It simply responds to how you feel
about what you say and how you feel about what you think.
For information on how to
create even more effective affirmations, review chapter 10 in The Key to
Living the Law of Attraction, where you'll find my guidelines for
creating effective visualizations.
Step 3. Release it and
In this third step, you
simply release your affirmation, your vibration, and your feelings to
the universe to take care of your "request" or
"order" as I call it. But you have to abstain from any doubts.
If you doubt you can have it in any way, then you are not allowing it.
You are pushing it away and you end up with contradictory messages to
It is only when the
contradictory thoughts, talk, and images are removed that your desired
results will manifest. The faster you remove your resistance, the faster
your dreams can be realized.
