A Beginners Guide to...
Did you know that you are unique and amazing?
Did you know that you have unlimited potential?
Did you know that you can have or be anything you want in life?...
...if...you know how to use The Law of Attraction.
Some people use this natural universal law without even knowing it, and achieve great results in their life. They run successful business, have great careers, marry the love of their lives and live a happy, healthy and abundant existence. But for others, those who feel that life has not been so 'kind', they can turn their lives around by utilising one of the greatest secrets in the Universe.
What is The Law of Attraction?
There is a lot on the internet regarding the Law of Attraction these days. A plethora of books, multitudes of videos and many key note speakers doing the rounds...but what is it? What is its essence? Behind all the hype and marketing what does it really mean to you and me, and how can we use it in our favour? How can we use it to change our lives?
Basically, the Law of Attraction means that whatever you want in life you can bring about by thought alone. It is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. You decide what you want, decide to make a positive change to bring it into your life and then tell the Universe what you want. But there is a caveat, you have to believe that what you ask for is a reality. That once you've asked, believe that you will receive, and you must be grateful for what you already have at the same time.

'Whether you think you can...or whether you think you can't...you're right!'
'But, how does the Law of Attraction work?'
Well, it's all down to the Universe, your place in it and frequency and vibration. Hold onto your hats, we are about to dip a toe into quantum physics...
Everything in the Universe, from the most distant star, the building in which you work, the tree at the end of your garden, your pet cat and even you are made from the the same material. We are made of stardust. Our world and all that is in it is composed of the elements created by the 'Big Bang', from way back at the beginning of time.
Everything that exists in the known Universe is composed of atoms, which consist of protons and neutrons. These in turn are composed of quarks, and electrons. It's only how these atoms behave with each other that decides how we are created, whether we have legs, leaves or a stripy ginger tail and whiskers.
Now these atoms vibrate (at different frequencies), which means that you are living your life on a particular frequency. All of your thoughts and actions are being transmitted to the Universe (even though you might not realise it). The Law of Attraction states that, if we can manage to align our particular frequency with what we truly desire, we can bring that (job, money, love or health etc) to us. Let me give you an example of how this alignment works.
Imagine that you are watching a beautiful sunset. You are standing barefoot on a beach, at the edge of the shoreline. The soft, golden sand feels soft under your feet as you let the sun warmed water lap at your toes. You have no cares and life is good. You feel perfectly relaxed, are at one with the universe and in tune with everything around you.
This relaxed state comes from your brainwaves harmonizing with those of the natural world around you. putting you on the same frequency. This alignment can happen by accident or by purpose, and those in the know can use the technique to achieve what they want in life, whether that be love, financial reward or perfect health.

'If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.'
Who can use the Law of Attraction?
Anyone can learn to use the Law of Attraction, from kids to the elderly, it's never too soon or too late to get going either!
The Law of Attraction is about increasing the positive thoughts you have and eradicating the negative. The Universe listens to all of your thoughts (even sub conscious ones), and will bring you more of the same. So if your mind is constantly worried about how to pay all you bills, the Universe will automatically bring you more bills to worry about. If you think you are too fat or to old to learn to dance, then the Universe will keep piling on the pounds to make sure that dance school never happens. However, if you concentrate on the positive, the Law of Attraction states that the Universe will bring you only good instead.
How do I start?
The first thing you have to do is choose...choose what you want (to be or have). This is not always as easy as it sounds and some people find that sitting down with a pen and paper and brainstorm what they really want in life is helpful. Sit down and write a list, or even better, create a 'dream' or 'vision' board. This is a notice board to which you attach drawings, photographs and lists of the things that you wish to bring into your life (the house with the pool you've always wanted, that new car or that grand piano that you've always longed for). You put your board somewhere prominent where you can look at it everyday and as you do so, know that these things are already yours. Believe that you already have those things in your life, not that you want them, but that you already have them. The Universe will hear your thoughts about already having them and will bring it into reality for you because what you think about the Law of Attraction brings to you.
Once you have chosen what you want to draw into your life, that is what you are going to focus on. You should also meditate on it and choose a phrase that fits the topic. For example, if your health is not the best, you can choose to state to the Universe: 'I am perfectly healthy and full of energy every single day!' You want to focus your mind and say it with as much feeling and emotion that you can muster, not to just say the words, make them come alive to you. Then believe what you have said is true, convince yourself and you automatically convince the Universe who will bring what you want to you. Don't forget, it's also very important to be grateful for what you already have, and to be happy while you are waiting for your new life to unfold. Do things that make you happy, if you live life with a smile on your face, the Universe will respond to you faster.
Visualisation is also very important to the process of bringing in the new. Each day, shut your eyes for a few minutes and visualise yourself already having what you want. See yourself sitting by your new pool, feel the fabric of the recliner as you lay in luxury and hear the sounds of nature all around you. Try and make the vision as real as possible, really live in the moment. Then open your eyes and go on and enjoy with your day knowing that your dreams can come true.
'What do I need to say?'
If you need to improve your finances, don't say 'I am going to be rich' because the Universe will read that as 'I am not yet rich and will only be rich in the future', and it will make sure that it is always only in the future for you. Instead, say 'I am rich, I have more money than I can spend!' and believe it to be true. If you put in the effort the Universe will respond and your financial position will improve. Remember, don't say 'I am going to be..' or 'I am going to have...' say 'I have...' or 'I am' to get the results that you are looking for.
Albert Einstein (right) - theoretical physicist and genius once said:
'Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get into that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.'
Using the Law of Attraction is a bit like learning to ride a bike, its all about practice, practice...and more practice until you can do it without even thinking about it and it becomes second nature to you.
The great thing about it though is that the process takes place in your head, so you can practice while you are at work, shopping, driving the car or anytime you like. Also, nobody else will know you are doing it (unless you tell them), so if you are stuck in the doctors waiting room or in a mind numbing meeting at work, it's the perfect time to get a little practice in.
In essence, decide what you want, ask for what you want, believe that you will get it and in the meantime, be thankful for what you already have and be happy...
...and start improving your world...through the power of your mind.
