My 2007 Law of Attraction Year in Review

It's that time of year when magazines, television shows, etc. do some type of "year in review" so I'm going to share my review of 2007 through the Law of Attraction.

Previous to 2007, I didn't fully know or understand the Law of Attraction. Sure many things went well for me, but I also worried about many things. Much of what I worried about never did happen. But something else to worry about seemed to show up. I would think to myself "boy the universe always does find a way to get me out of a problem." Then the next problem would come up and I'd worry again, just to be rescued at the last minute.

Today, what I worry about is greatly reduced. After months of practicing EFT, spending more time meditating, reading more and more about personal development and Law of Attraction, and practicing "right thinking", I'm in a better state of mind. Sure there is more growth, but I've cleared out more of the negativity this past year.

In 2007 I received many good things:

* I met many new people through work, social groups and blogging.
* I've met people in random situations (grocery check-out lines, bookstores, resturants) and in the conversations that developed, words of wisdom or good feelings, were exchanged that made the day a little brighter.
* I found a new place to live, close to work and later found out it was to be closer to where my children would eventually move.
* I received many free lunches and dinners.
* I was successful in all legal actions taken against me and I'm able to keep custody of my children.
* I received a couple of gift cards, just in time, that allowed me to buy things that wore out.
* I was given free massages.
* I've won a couple of contests and drawings.
* I played and won numerous scratch-off lottery tickets. More that I spent on tickets.
* I get to spend more time with my children helping them get their homework done.
* I've received numerous compliments about my quality of work from customers and management.

These items and circumstances represent the good things I've attracted into my life.

One trick I learned, in 2007, that really benefits me is to write in a Gratitude Journal. I've written much in my Gratitude Journal. Documenting the proof that I do attract more good into my life. When I read this journal, I get warm fuzzies again, just like when I originally experienced these items or circumstances coming into my life. The original experience raises my vibrations and rereading about the experience raises my vibrations again. I'm sure that by keeping this practice, and others, 2008 is an even better, more fulfilling and abundant year.

I'm wishing you much success and happiness for 2008.

I'm looking forward to getting unclothed.

Many people, like me, when starting to use the Law of Attraction, desire to see immediate change and when it doesn't happen become disappointed and discouraged. We've seen or read "The Secret" and seem to forget about the "buffer of time." We are in a society that has been molded to increase our desire for immediate gratification: "Instant Loan Approval," "Get Cash Now," spray on our cologne and be a woman magnet "bow Chika bow wow," eating our candybar "really satisfies you" and many more.

As beginners using the Law of Attraction often when we don't see the instant manifestation of our desires, we cycle back to our existing limiting belief systems we've built up over years when ignorant of The Law of Attraction.

So when does this whole thing turn around?

Well, that depends on how much and how long you've been thinking negative and limiting thoughts. It also depends on how much you put into changing your thoughts to align more with what good you want and less of what you don't want. Remember the "buffer of time"? We still have thoughts and desires, albeit some negative ones, that are in queue still working their way through the system to get to us.

This doesn't mean that new good thoughts and desires won't or can't come into our lives. They most certainly can and will. What is important to remember is that we still have other thoughts and desires we had in the past that are in the system on their way to us. What we can do is change how we react and think about what manifests today, tomorrow and beyond. Look at this manifestation of a negative situation and think "Wow! I really can manifest what I think about. Now, how can I make this better?"

"If you do today, what you did yesterday, you'll get tomorrow what you got today."

Now is the time of choice. This is when we can choose to stay in the negative emotion and perpetuate the negative attractions or change our thoughts into one of a higher positive vibration. See The Emotion Guidance Scale in my previous post ("Back to Basics: Emotions")

This is where the training comes in to play. What training? That depends on what you've attracted into your life and what feels comfortable to you. Some examples of the training I'm talking about comes from reading books such as "Think and Grow Rich" "As a Man Thinkith" "The Science of Getting Rich." Programs to sign-up for, Wealth Beyond Reason (aff), Wealth Fundamentals Pack (aff), The Science of Getting Rich (aff). There is energy manipulation techniques: acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique (aff), binaural beats audio programs and the old standbys of yoga and meditation. The list goes on and on.

By learning and practicing any one or combination of these and other techniques or processes, then we are preparing ourselves for life's events. The events we've attracted to ourselves by our previous thoughts.

I consider my emotions something very special and precious. I'm still working on the balance and mastery of my emotions. I know they are a very strong aspect of who I am. I am very passionate and when I feel or experience an emotion, I can really enjoy being in that emotion for a long time. Even ones that are lower on the vibrational levels, depression, insecurity, unworthiness, worry, doubt, etc. I do have great moments of joy, pleasure, enthusiasm, but in the past it seems I've spent more time with the lower vibrational emotions than with the positive ones.

In the past 46+ years, I've spent time with those negative emotions and attracting the corresponding events that keep me in those states. That is a lot of stuff I've been attracting.

Here is an analogy I've been working on: We all start out as bright shinning beings of spirit and over time we put on layers of negative clothing that cover our light. I've been putting on layers of negative emotional clothing. For example: Parents tell us "no" and we get a negative sock to put on. I'm pissed you cut me off, put on a anger undershirt. I got fired from that stinking job I hate, put on a negative pair of underwear and negative pants. I'm depressed my girlfriend left me, put on a negative coat. After a number of years, if you could see me with these clothes on, I'd look like a four year old wearing a goose down stuffed winter jacket, all puffy and lost in the clothing.

So, now I've spent a couple of years, off and on but mostly on, working on experiencing and living in the positive emotions. Each day, hour, minute of being emotionally positive, allows me to remove another article of negative clothing so I can get back to the bright shinning soul that was born 47 years ago.

I've got some more clothes to take off.

Each day I can remove one or more articles of clothing, I feel less burdened but the weight of these extra clothes I've put on over the years still weighs on me and sometimes it seems like I might not ever get out of all this. Now, here is the best part, I look back and see how many negative cloths are in the discard pile and I can celebrate the success of taking off more clothes. I can get excited about taking off more clothes and seeing the improvement. It's just a matter of how long it takes me to remove my clothes. Hence the title of my post.

Imagine if I were really wearing all those clothes. (Turning for a profile view: "Does this make me look fat?")

Now I realize how much of a burden all these clothes have put on me, how they restrict my movements and taking actions. Maybe even how unattractive I believe they might make me look to someone else. Now it's time that we, you and I, do the positive things we're learning to do: Emotional Freedom Technique, meditation, reading good books, listening to tapes/CDs, reading blogs, thinking good thoughts, etc.

How fast we take off our clothes is up to you and me. How many books do we read? How many programs do we sign-up for? How many tapes/CDs do we listen to? AND most importantly, how often, how sincerely do we practice what we learn.

How to make "Self-Improvement" Work Every Time! - By Bob Doyle


There is an inherent problem with the approach most people take to self-improvement of any kind. There is a presupposition that there is something wrong that needs fixing. Perhaps it is true that there are areas in their lives that they wish to change. However, the mindset with which they approach transformation will very often NEGATE any positive results they might have. Why? Because all of their focus is on the PROBLEM they are trying to solve, rather than their vision for what their life will be like on without the alleged problem.

There is a very basic physical natural law which ultimately determines ANY success on ANY level. This law dictates exactly what our experience will be from moment to moment. Best of all, this law is fully under our control at all times, even if we are not aware of it.

This "law" is the Law of Attraction. Most of the time, you hear about this law in terms of how it will help you to attract wealth or abundance in general. However, the Law of Attraction transcends just those basic desires. The Law ofAttraction dictates that you will receive back exactly what you "vibrate"...that is, what you are FEELING. Where is your attention? Is it on the feelings associated with the problem, or with the feelings of no longer having the problem?

If you approach self-improvement material with the desire to"get rid of the problem", and if all your feelings are on how terrible or frustrating this "problem" is, Universal Law dictates that you will simply attract MORE of those feelings...more of the circumstances that brought the problem to you in the first place. The Universe isn’t "out to get you". It is simply responding to the "request" that you are putting out by way of your feelings.

If, however, you approach your self-improvement solutions with high positive feelings associated with what your life WILL be...if you visualize your success with your program of choice on all sensory levels, particularly on the level of EMOTION, you will literally magnetically ATTRACT the success you are looking for! Miracles will occur!

While this may sound very "mystic" or even preposterous, I submit to you that EVERY aspect of your life right now has been brought to you in perfect response to your prevailing thoughts and beliefs which directly effect your emotional state, which in turn causes you to emit very specific and magnetic frequencies which attract like frequencies.

We must never forget that beyond simply being flesh and bone, we are, at a molecular level, ENERGY. And our personal energy obeys the same physical laws as all other Energy which we study more traditionally.

The wealthiest, most successful people in the world use the Law of Attraction (albeit often unconsciously) to effortlessly bring into their lives whatever they envision. This could be wealth, successful businesses, or satisfying relationships. Or, it could simply be wisdom, peace of mind, and a sense of purpose.

The big secret is that you truly CAN have whatever you want, regardless of how "pie-in-the-sky" this may sound. You need only learn a few key concepts about HOW to ask for what you want to begin receiving it in abundance! Despite what you may currently believe or have been taught, it is not the purpose of our lives to struggle, to work hard for years, or try to "figure things out". Our job is to do what we love to do. When we do that with full trust and knowing that doing so will naturally attract our deepest desires, we become powerful magnets, which absolutely assures our success.

I love "Thoughts from the Universe"

I signed up for the "Thoughts from the Universe" daily messages through TUT's Adventurer Club and got this message today. It very simply tells how the Law of Attraction works.

By the simple act of thinking, Dean, vortexes are created, invisible energies are applied, and circumstances begin creeping to make real what was previously just imagined. This supernatural pull of your thoughts continues long after you think them, whenever there follows intent, expectation and action; moving mountains, parting rivers, and doing the "impossible" until there is the inevitable manifestation.

This is how your "thoughts becoming things." How they physically become things in a dimension that already exists, with billions of players and massive momentum. Not by appearing out of thin air, but through a manipulation of such forces in the unseen that literally begin shifting, morphing, and arranging all of the elements in your life so as to deliver to you the nearest equivalent of what you've been thinking. In other words, the "law of attraction."

"Thoughts becoming things" explains the law of attraction. It's why there is a law of attraction. And unlike any other 3 words in all the vocabularies of all the languages in the world, "thoughts become things" tells you exactly where you fit into the picture, as the thinker, the decision maker over what you will think about, revealing your power as a supernatural, all powerful, unlimited, CREATOR.

But, of course, many prefer not to think of themselves as so phenomenally powerful.

The Universe

Just thought I'd share this with you.
