The Law of Attraction means that like is attracted unto like. If we can align our vibration with what we truly desire, then we can attract anything that we want into our lives. Attracting what we want can be quite a subtle process.

In fact using the Law of Attraction consciously means creating the spaces in your life to attract what you truly desire and here are 7 ways to enable that process and make it much more easy and effortless for you (as long as you get out of your own way!) to attract the life you want.

1. Know that you are a Creator

……..and become a Conscious one. Most of us operate as though we are victims of circumstance, powerless over what happens to us. We are always creating our situations and circumstances, but it is often unconscious and we are not harnessing our innate power to attract the lives we want. But once this is realised (and more importantly, acted upon), this is completely liberating.

2. Know Your Values

Values are represent who we are and what defines us. They are our blueprint.

When we understand what our values are then it is much easier to to live an authentic life. Values are what drives us and provide us with energy and motivation – whether we are aware of them or not. If you set goals (by no means mandatory incidentally), ensure that they are aligned and fully congruent with your values. Uncover your values first and set goals to suit. You’re much more likely to achieve them.

3. Harness and Focus Your Energy

This is pivotal. It’s more difficult to attract what you desire in life if you’re constantly tired and fatigued. The Law of Attraction means that you’ll attract more of the same. And it’s hard to receive what the Universe wants to give you if you are out of the office firefighting all the time.

Learn to identify what gives you energy and what drains you. Your diet, environment, level of self care, the people you mix with (beware of energy vampires!) all influence your level of energy. Energetic techniques and processes like EFT and Reiki will help clear your energy blockages.

4. Use Your Intuition

Your intuition is your internal Guidance Protection System. It is that quiet voice which alerts you to opportunities and keeps you out of danger. When I follow my intuition, things have a habit of going well and when I don’t, they go awry. Intuition finds it hard to be heard if you’re stressed and tired, but if you plug those energy leaks (see no 3), you will allow your intuitive voice to be heard. Take notice of it.

5. Release Resistance

We often get in our own way by blocking (unconsciously)what we want. And one of the ways in which we do this is by resisting and refusing to let go of old thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and even desires. This often manifests itself in "busyness" (so you don’t have time to think!), inflexibility and "shoulding" on yourself. Set your intention to evaluate your beliefs and ask if they still serve you well. If not, then you know what to do.

6. Be here now

Enjoy the present moment. The Power of Now. Because that is all there is. Free yourself from the weight of the past or dread of the future. Practice mindfulness and be in each moment. Schedule downtime for yourself every day, to give your brain/body/spirit a chance to breathe. Keep a gratitude/appreciation journal to help you focus on the abundance that you have right here, right now.

7. Design supportive environments

Personal Growth is called Personal Growth for a reason. We are continually growing and evolving, but our physical environments often remain the same. If our physical environment is not working for us then one of the symptoms is of trying and efforting too hard, for little return. We are planting our seeds on barren ground. It doesn’t always necessitate a move – just a recognition that some of our "stuff" that we hang onto is holding us back.

Attracting what we want into our lives is as much a process of letting go as it is actively pursuing what we want. In fact going after our goals with a vengeance can be counterproductive. Effort doesn’t always equal productivity or outcome. In fact the amount of effort exerted is often disproportional to the actual result and leaves us tired without a feeling of satisfaction or fulfilment.

Get out of your own way and use any of the above tools to help you attract the life you want.
