The Basics of the Law of Attraction

Ramona opened the Meet Up with a Meditation from Deepak Chopra - Meditation.

Our Skype guest was Jane Hogan, a lady we have known for ten years, and one of the best co-creators we know. She spoke of some of her experiences manifesting and what she does to get what she wants.

Over the next few meetings we will discuss the basics of the LOA. This meeting started with an exercise to determine what we want.

We read a quote from Abraham. Relationships I Don't Want, Clarify Those I Do Want... Whenever you know what you do not want, you always know more clearly what you do want. So in a disturbing moment of awareness of another person's undesirable situation, give your undivided attention to the idea of improvement that has hatched from your interaction /observation. And as you learn to do that, not only will you be of increasing value to others, but you will see how your relationships with others adds immeasurably to your own becoming.                     --- Abraham

It is generally not a good idea to think about the things we do not want because thinking about things does what?  It attracts them. Sometimes, however, it is helpful to realize what you do not want in order to eliminate them from our lives. Just don’t dwell on them. With this in mind, we did an exercise listing the top-of-mind things we wish we DID NOT HAVE in our lives. These can be people, places and things we would like to eliminate or change.  Include events from our past that haunt us today. They can be things said or done by our relatives, friends, teachers, coworkers, whatever worries we have – whoever and whatever haunts us today.

Visualizing the memory that haunts you the most – the teacher, relative, ex-friend, lover, coworker – do the following visualization.

Picture a large basket with a handle. Place the haunting memory into the basket and say the following: “You have haunted me for years….. I have learned the lesson you came to teach….. You are no longer of service to me…..You need to leave me now.”  Visualize a bunch of helium filled balloons that you tie to the basket. Say goodbye to the basket and the memory as you release it from your grasp. Watch it rise up into the sky, gently pushed by the breeze, disappearing forever. Feel the lightness that freedom from this unwanted memory brings. Now slowly come out of the visualization.

If it reappears to haunt you, just do this visualization again until it is gone. Later you can do this visualization for the other unwanted memories on your list.

Now let’s build the life we want. On a piece of paper list the things you DO want in your life. Save that list and add to it when you think of something else.

Next we identified the elements of the Laws of Attraction which we will cover in the next few meetings.

           The First Law of Attraction - Like Attracts Like:

·         Identify what you want. Be specific. Remember to be careful what you wish for – it may come true. Make a list and keep it with you.

       Feel the joy. Create an “I Am” list. When feeling contradicted, think of whatever makes you smile without conflicted feelings.

·         Focus on what you want. Picture the end result with as much detail as possible. Ground yourself.

  Set your vibration and keep it high. Align yourself with and be in the vortex. Stay positive about all areas of your life and send out only positive energy to attract the life you desire and deserve.  

The Second Law - The Law of Deliberate Creation:

·         Ramp up your desire and believe you will get it. Think of the reasons you should have it. Get excited about it. Feel it – hear it – use all the senses.

·         Positively believe you will get it. Absolutely believe it will happen. Make up a story about having it and tell your story repeatedly. Attach passion to it. Know that you deserve it.

·         Appreciate it when you see it – even if it belongs to someone else. The Universe responds favorably to unselfish approval.

The Third Law - The Law of Allowing:

·         Let your intuition guide you. Take actions that feel right to you as you focus on your desires.

·         Allow the Universe to provide your desires in the manner and form it deems appropriate. Do not preconceive the how and when of your manifestation. Allow the essence of what you want and let the Universe determine the manner and time that is best for you.

Members asked what they can do when they felt “Stuck” in a void. The following excerpt is from “Ask and it is Given”, by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

Life is Always in Motion, So you Cannot be “ Stuck”

Sometimes our physical friends will say, “I’m stuck! I’ve been in this place for a very long time, and I can’t get out of it.  I’m stuck?” And we always explain that it is not possible to stand still or be stuck, because Energy, and therefore life, is always in motion.  Things are always changing.

But the reason it may feel to you as if you are stuck is because, while you are continuing to think the same thoughts, things are changing-but they are changing to the same thing over and over. If you want things to change to different things, you must think different thoughts.  And that simply requires finding unfamiliar ways of approaching familiar subjects.

The meeting closed with the following Abraham rampage of invincibility - Rampage
