I don’t want to be overweight.
I don’t want to procrastinate.
I don’t want to be jealous.
I don’t want a messy house.
I don’t want to yell.
I don’t want to be late.
According to Oprah and Michael Losier, author of Law of Attraction: The Science of Attracting More of What You Want and Less of What You Don’t, that list is a sure fire way to get all of those things. God, the Universe, The Law of Attraction or whatever else you want to call it does not hear Don’t, Not, and No. When I say “I don’t want to be late”, The Law of Attraction only hears…”Late”, and that is what I attract to myself. Michael goes on to explain, that if you typed in a search on the Internet saying “No Football”, what would you get? Tonnes of stuff about football. When you say to your dog, “Don’t go get your leash” all she hears is “leash”. Parents even know that saying, “Walk” rather than “Don’t run” gets better a better result.
Many of us have a hard time focusing on what we want, however, so he recommends first compiling the list of things we don’t want then switching it around. It’s like a re-set button. The longer the list the more detailed it becomes.
My list above can change to:
I want to have a fit and healthy body.
I want to do things in a timely manner.
I want to be satisfied and happy with my life.
I want to have a warm, welcoming, and organized home.
I want to speak calmly.
I want to be on time.
Just saying those same things in a positive way causes me to feel differently about them.
Yesterday on the radio show, they talked about applying this technique to getting the job/career that you desire. It was so enlightening. They helped a lady caller create her own list of “don’t wants” about her job, and then coached her into switching the list to the positive. When she did it you could immediately hear the change in her voice.
The list is just the beginning, however. After you create the list of all of the things you want, it’s now your job to put attention, energy, and focus onto those things. Every time you write about them the Law of Attraction is listening. When you day dream it’s listening. When you talk about them, it’s listening. The Law of Attraction is always checking to see what kind of vibration (or vibe) you’re sending out. And by the way, there are only two kinds of vibrations. Positive or negative. And the LofA will always match what you send out. It doesn’t help to just say the words, you have to FEEL them and believe them ,too.
One of the things he said that I just loved was that once you start sending out this vibration, you will start seeing results. In the case of that lady caller, she might not immediately get her dream job (which is to be self employed) but she will likely start coming across people who are, and can then learn from them. She can surround herself with people who have or are aspiring to the same goal and by doing so she is focusing her attention on that which she wants. The part I loved is that when we’re paying attention we will see the proof. It may start off small, but the more energy I give to my desires, the bigger the results.
I’m not a religious person, and I’ve been curious for awhile as to why I have so many religious people in my life. Most of my friends are religious. Some more devout than others. I clued in when I realized that I talk about it a lot. “Not religious”. If the Law of Attraction doesn’t hear Don’t, Not, or No, then all it would hear is “religious”. I’m attracting these people to me for a reason. Which, incidentally, I think is great. Even though I follow my own path spiritually, I love to learn about other people and their beliefs.
So, everyone. I hope you all have a great vibrational day.
“I’m pickin’ up good vibrations. Good good good good vibrations!”
For some reason I can’t get that song outta my head!
