If you’re struggling to manifest your ideal life, try these 7 essential Law of Attraction techniques to make manifesting your dreams quicker and easier.
Law of Attraction Techniques #1: Meditation
Meditation is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. But there’s more to it than that. It also increases your conscious awareness. With a calm mind, it’s easier to become aware of your thoughts and beliefs. It’s hard to change limiting beliefs when you don’t even realize which ones are influencing your life.
When meditating, simply allow your thoughts to pass through your mind. Detach from them. Be aware of them as boats on the water drifting through your consciousness. Just accept them and let them go by.
Try not to make any judgments about them. Remember that they are just thoughts. Look at them with curiosity, notice them and let them go.
With practice, you’ll soon be able to spot reoccurring patterns of thinking and beliefs.
Some of these may feel uncomfortable. You may notice aspects of your shadow self or parts of yourself that you would rather not face.
Remember that you’re only human and that we all have many aspects both positive and negative.
By sitting with one of these aspects in meditation, accepting it without judgment and looking to understand it, you gain the power to release it, move past it and make deep, lasting change.
Law of Attraction Techniques #2: Visualization
Visualization is one of the most popular techniques for mastering the Law of Attraction. Simply think of what you want and feel the feelings that you would feel if you had it.
You want things in order to get an underlying feeling or satisfy an underlying need. For example, you may want to be rich to feel secure, powerful and successful. As you visualize, feel that feeling.
Make sure it feels right – that you’re getting the feeling that you really want. Instead of feeling secure, you may really want to feel free and independent.
Practice stepping into and out of the image in your mind.
Look at it as if you are looking at a movie screen, then step inside the image of yourself until you can see out of your own eyes.
If it doesn’t look or feel right, make changes until the image is what you really want.
Law of Attraction Techniques #3: Visualization Boards
Visualization boards, vision boards or dream boards are a useful tool to help you focus. They are great reminders to re-connect with your intention, strengthen your visualization skills and keep the object of your intention in the forefront of your thoughts.
They’re fun to create and use for narrowing down a vague intention.
Vision boards come in all shapes and sizes. They can be as simple as a photo on your bathroom mirror, to a wall filled with images and objects that support your intention.
Law of Attraction Techniques #4: Affirmations
Affirmations are a helpful tool if you use them correctly.
Negative thoughts tend to take on a life of their own. Positive affirmations can help you break these old patterns.
You just need to use affirmations that you can believe. Saying an affirmation that you know you don’t believe is simply an invitation to start an argument with yourself. This only creates a lose/lose situation.
Turn the situation around. Change the affirmation to something positive that you do believe such as I am smart enough to figure this out. I will find the answers I need to make this work out great. I know I can do this and I will get this done.
Affirmations aren’t just scripted lines. They are statements of belief. What you say (even without realizing it) is usually what you end up getting.
Listen to what you say in regular conversations. Start to notice what you say to people and how you feel when you say it.
If you get a bad feeling in your gut when you say it, take a second and think of what you said. It will show you what you believe.
If it’s a belief that you want to change, then as soon as you notice it, turn it around.
For example, if you said something like “I’ll never lose this weight” immediately say three positive statements such as “but I will if I want to, I’ve done harder things before and I can do this, too.”
Instead of arguing with your mind, give it a game plan to help you get what you want.
Law of Attraction Techniques #5: Be Grateful
Feeling gratitude for what you already have and experience is a quick and effective way to get into the present moment, get out of your head and feel better all at the same time.
When you enjoy and appreciate something, you open yourself up energetically to the Universe and the flow of life.
It can feel like letting go of a heavy load. It opens you to possibility and gives you more things to be grateful for.
Make gratitude a habit. Try a gratitude journal. Every day, think of at least three or more things that you are grateful for and write them down. Actively appreciate the good things in your life.
Law of Attraction Techniques #6: Follow Your Joy
It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of everyday life that you forget what brings you joy. It’s never too late to re-connect. Do things that you like and enjoy.
Make the time to add some fun back into your life. Follow your passion. Find what excites you.
Be happy now.
Law of Attraction Techniques #7: Let Go of the Outcome
Don’t get so attached to the outcome that you prevent it from happening. When you think of your intention always ask for this or something better.
Allow the Universe to unfold. Believe that what you want is out there, take inspired actions to get it, but stay open to all possibilities.
What may seem like a detour may be the quickest way to get to where you want to go. Follow your heart, detach from the outcome and enjoy the journey.
Whether you focus on meditation, visualization, create a vision board, try affirmations, practice gratitude or simply find your joy, these seven Law of Attraction techniques can make manifesting your dreams quicker, easier and far more enjoyable.
