The Basics of the Law of Attraction :-)

Good day. I hope you are all having a great day. From tooday I wanted start a series of discussion and to really get into the basics of how I used the Law of Attraction to help with goal setting and success focus. I want to clarify again this is how I USED IT, because again I am by no means an "Expert" on the topic which is the whole point of this blog. I think we can learn from each others every day, real life experiences.

For those of you who are new to the Law of Attraction let me give a brief description of how I understand it to be. Just like gravity, and thermodynamics the law of attraction is a fundamental universal law. Not knowing it or understanding it or studying it and becoming an expert in it has nothing to do with believing or not believing it. The most common thing I heard from my own family is that "I don't believe in it." Well that  is great for you, but saying I don't believe in electricity does not mean that if I stick a metal rod into those 2 tinny holes in the wall of my kitchen I won't get shocked or killed. 

So lets focus on the positive. Law of Attraction states that what ever you concentrate on, you will bring about into your reality. It is said in terms of "like attracts like". That terminology though had me a bit confused because in magnetism like repels like. And we all have heard how "opposites attract". But the key is that what ever you are concentrating on that evokes an emotion, positive or negative, will be created in your reality. You can use it or go about being a victim of it by default.

That is at first a bit scary because it forces us to take responsibility for the way our life is now. That is a great point of focus that Jack Canfield mentions in every one of his seminars and books. Again just because it scares us does not mean by ignoring it we can avoid it. Most people in fact are going around by default when it comes to the law of attraction. The first think I asked when I heard this is "if we can create our future by what we concentrate on then why is there so much pain in the world? or does the child ask to be born with Cancer?" Those are very tough questions. I don't pretend to have an answer but let examine the law together and see if it makes sense. Through out the world we are bombarded by different forms of media and news. Is most of that new positive? I wish I could say yes, but the fact is that good news does not get much attention. So when all of our waking life is spent concentrating, in most cases unconsciously,  to negativity is there any question why there is so much pain?

When I heard about the earthquake in Haiti, I wondered if there was a concentration of publicity on some natural disaster around the world just prior to the earthquake? Some thing to think about.

There is good news however. By the fact that you are now learning and concentrating on this you can filter what you see and what you actually PAY ATTENTION TO.
Please click on the comment section and give us your feed back. In the next blog I will go over how to actually start using the law of attraction to manifest.

Whipped Cream on my head

As I am sitting here typing this new post on my blog, my wife put whipped cream on my bald head so my daughter who is sitting on my shoulders right now can lick it off of my head. That is what I call PURE JOY. How perspectives change.
Why do I mention this incident? Incidences like this that evoke a major emotion, specially good ones are the ones we want to keep on to. These are your condition reverser to use when you are feeling down. When trying to use the Law of Attraction in anything you need to get in touch with your feeling. Imagination and visualizations are the mental tools. They are like the steering wheel on a car but the EMOTION is the connection of the steering wheel to the actual WHEELS of the car. Without the emotions you can turn the steering wheel all you want and nothing will happen.
The experts in LOA tell us that we have to get into the "FEELING OF HAVING IT" before we can manifest any of our desires. When you are having a bad day, or when things are not going your way it is difficult to get into the feeling of having ...
What I have found though is that it does not take much to start changing those feelings. These condition reverser that I mention are small steps of making you feel good. Truly feel good one step at a time is the key to getting what you want.
Let me try to use an example here. If I am visualizing having a million dollars by December 31st, 2010 but I just happen to get a major reprimand from my "boss", it is a bit difficult to have the feeling of having it. When I am in the feeling of "I can't believe he treated me like that", or "I should have done a better job" I am concentrating on those negative emotions. You can not manifest anything positive with negative emotions. So I go to my reverser. I take a look at the video of my baby daughter climbing a rock wall, or look at the picture of her licking whipped cream off of my head. Even as I am writing this there is a uncontrollable smile coming to my face and that is the little bit of change to the positive.
Positive energy is 10000 times stronger than negative energy. I read this in The Secret and many other works dealing with the law of Attraction and Success. It is like a lit match in a dark cave. It cuts through the darkness even though it is small. You need to bring yourself back to a positive mental state then visualize and emotionalize what you want to materialize.
I hope this helps. Till next time.


Hello, I am so excited to be starting this blog. As the intro said this blog is for any one interested in Success, the Law of Attraction, and happiness in general. I came to be introduced to the Law of Attraction (LOA) about 3 years ago when our midwife gave us the DVD The Secret. I watched it with hesitation because I am a scientist. But the fact that I had read Think and Grow Rich about 7 times by that time helped me view this with an open mind. I went and purchased 2 copies of the book The Secret, one in English and one in Spanish for my wife. I read and read it over and over again and started by "TESTING" the principals. I had used the techniques in Think and Grow Rich in 2006 to help me get out of the $100k school debt that I had. That worked. So I tried the LOA on getting a parking spot at the Carlsbad Company Stores in Carlsbad California on a weekend. Needless to say it worked. It worked not once, but every time. To this day I am amazed at the fact that I do not have trouble getting a parking spot.
I shared this with my colleagues in a training session to help them set and achieve their training and sales goals. Wouldn't you know it they used it to get parking spots. So to take it to the next step I had inspiration to help high school kids get introduced to this concept right away instead of waiting like me into their middle age.

So what I did was to start writing an e-book in my spare time entitled "How to Succeed After High School: a Real world Lesson" (The title changed when the book went into print to ROAD MAP TO LIFE: A real world lesson). In it I put all the information that I wished some one had given me when I was graduating from high school. Stuff like the Law of Attraction and how to make is work. Things like basic finance and what is an asset and what is a liability. The 6 Steps of setting and achieving any goal be it to find a perfect mate or getting the car of my dreams etc. I put that e-book for sale for just $1.99 to get it into the hands of as many people as possible.

Here I want to share how I use the Law of Attraction and how I as a beginner have made it work. I also hope others will comment and we can all learn from each other and more than that I want this to be a daily positive source of energy for any one who wants to read and comment.

Come and join me.
