Have you ever suddenly developed a craving for ice cream?
You think about it. Maybe you mention it out loud to your friend across the room and now all of a sudden every day for the next week ice cream is popping up everywhere. It’s in media ads. Someone mentions it on the radio. Maybe, someone in your favourite show is eating that same flavour you were just thinking about.
I get it, it’s weird. It’s easy to toss it up to some coincidence or maybe you think the FBI is watching you.
The reality is, your subconscious mind awakened and is now pulling what you want towards you. Maybe these things were always around you, all the time. But now that you are aware of it, asked for it, and spoke it into existence - it becomes reality.
Law of Attraction is a marvelous thing that can ignite real ideas into existence. It’s a philosophy suggesting that positive thoughts bring positive results into a person's life, while negative thoughts bring negative outcomes. The universe creates and provides for you that which your thoughts are focused on.
The mind is so powerful that you can truthfully pull things into your life. The thoughts that you have create what you see, what you hear, and ultimately, how you live.
The reality is, life is truly what YOU make it. The things you view, surround yourself with, listen to, and educate yourself with all contribute to the type of life that you lead.
Attracting the life you want relies on the habits and intentions you are willing to live with.
Let’s say you shape your life around no purpose. You have a negative view on the world and decide to not implement daily habits for a positive goal. Reality is, you’d quickly be subject to limiting beliefs, self-doubt and absolutely no growth. Each day would pass you by and you’d ultimately live a life of regret.
Now, on the other hand - let’s say you want to create a positive, enriching life that directs you towards a purpose. As a result, you cultivate personal daily habits that help attract positivity and light into your life which ultimately, leads you directly towards your life goals and success.
The key to attracting the life that you want is to practice mindfulness and positivity every single day. Purposely shaping your life around what you want will result in you getting what you want.
Let me take you through how to attract the things you want most into your life :
First and foremost, you need to decide what you are working so hard for. This means recognising what your purpose is. Think about yourself 5 years from now. Are you happy? What is going on in your life that makes you so happy? What career do you have or what do you look like? Break it all down so that you can clearly create a vision.
In order to maintain motivation, you have to inspire yourself. To invoke inspiration, it’s important to clearly lay out what it is that you want out of your life.
Creating a daily routine is the backbone of attracting the life that you want. Map out your perfect day. To create a vision that you want and how you move throughout life holds so much power. Not only will you know what you’re doing and will keep you on track and productive, but it will also help with pulling positivity into your life.
Things happen in life. It is undeniable and unavoidable. But to have a basis that you can always fall back to - a ritual - can give you the structure and mindfulness that you need.
Taking a moment every day to check in with your mind is essential to living the life that you want.
The trick is to remind yourself about your goal for today. Ask yourself what kind of life that you intend on living that day. What motivates you? Inspires you? What could you do today in order to make your life worth living?
It’s all about shaping each day around positivity and your goals. This will in turn bring what you want forth and reward you.
Affirmations are so powerful when talking about pulling what you want into your life. Affirmation means the power of affirming something. Repeating a notion that it becomes your reality.
A commonality between all these points is that it’s all about the mind. You can control what your mind believes.
“The mind does not know the difference between an internal thought and an external reality” - Hitomi Mochizuki
If you can encourage and support your mind by repeating positive, enlightening affirmations - you will be able to receive the energy that you are putting out.
Some positive affirmations to try :
- I am ready to receive positive rewards from the universe
- I have all the tools I need to succeed
- I am the author of my story
These are a few powerful affirmations to help you on your journey to attracting what you want. Create some of your own for every week. Repeat them and let the energy in the words fill you body up from your feet up to your head. Believe in the words and let them believe in you.
Realisation of the gifts and rewards you have received is so important. Once you implement these strategies, positivity and your goals in life will flood you. That being said, it’s important to take a moment to revel in what has surrounded you. Look around and fully take in how much your life has transformed.
No win is too big, just as no win is too small. The fact that you got up and made your bed this morning. How about, you make yourself and your partner a healthy meal. Congratulate yourself on the ‘wins’ of your day.
I love writing in my Gratitude Planner every day and giving thanks and to the fact that I have a roof over my head. Food in the fridge. Loved ones who love me back in return. These are things you need to take a moment to really soak in and feel. It’s too easy to get lost in what we don’t have and forget all that we do.
Your life is full of abundance as it is - right now. As you move along your journey, you will only collect more to be thankful for. Do not be ungrateful for these small treasures.
Take a moment every day, and say thank you. This will only allow the space for more to come into your life and you will be ready with open arms, when they do.
