Are You Living a Good Life Now?
Manifesting Your Desires for Success, Health and Happiness With the Law of Attraction
We live in very exciting times to be sure. Ours is an era of explosive growth in information technologies as well as a time of spiritual awakening and personal transformation on a massive scale. Can you feel it too? We are at a place in history that is heralding a change in how we see ourselves. We are beginning to wake up and remember who we really are and what we are truly capable of. Have you noticed the wealth of information being shared about new discoveries in Quantum Physics, the power of our minds, and our inborn, natural abilities to manifest the lives we truly desire? Books, seminars and many talented scientists and thought-leaders in the field of human potential are emerging at an accelerated rate. The newest buzz in personal success circles is the Law of Attraction, and yet the principles within the law are as old as the hills and ancient as Time itself. If you’ve ever thought, “I’ve got to get on this train and find out more!” you’ve come to the right place. This is how I feel too. Even as I learn about manifesting the life I truly desire, doing so takes awareness and practice and it seems like there’s so much more to know. But as the saying goes, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
The Law of Attraction states that we become and attract what we think about. One of the most exciting discoveries in the field of Quantum Physics is the concept that our thoughts, words and feelings, and not just our actions, create our reality. This is a universal law that works even if we don’t understand or believe it. And it also means that we’ve been doing things backwards. A good life begins within us, not by our trying to control or fix things in the outside world. We are not victims to happenstance. We are more like magicians who have influence beyond our own awareness.
I learned about the Law of Attraction in the years leading up to the start of my coaching practice, which I established in 1998. When I first heard the statement, “To think is to create” in a seminar for personal growth, I thought “That sounds nice,” and passed it off as a confusing, yet neat little cliché on a banner hanging in the room. At the time, I didn’t fully understand the implications of those words. I have since come to appreciate how our thoughts, feelings and attitudes have a compound interest effect indeed, and cause even the smallest coincidences to occur in our daily lives.
You Can Have What You Desire and Deserve
To help us better understand the law as we go forward, I’d like to share the position in which the Law of Attraction is based. Quite simply, we live in a benevolent universe that can only support and fulfill our wishes and desires. We are the cause and creators of our reality and we get help in making it so. Do you remember the phrase, “Be careful about what you ask for, you might get it?” Well, there’s a whole lot of truth to that statement.
This is intriguing stuff because it means we really can have whatever we desire and deserve. Beyond that, life wants to give it to us. You see, there is no lack, no matter what our perception about lack is. But we’re allowed to experience the ‘reality’ of lack as long as we choose to think about it, and believe in scarcity, and until we choose otherwise. We are all connected to a boundless source of prosperity and to the eternal and unlimited power that gave us life, which we can never be separated from. I personally call this power God, but others call it source energy, the mind of spirit, Great Spirit, the Universe, higher-self and still others, the field of infinite possibilities and pure potentiality.
Ask and It is Given
You can change your life for the better at any time and take a quantum leap forward to experience only those wonderful things that at one time you didn’t dare imagine! “Ask and it is given” is a premise in the Law of Attraction which means we each have an awesome ability to attract fortuitous opportunities to us. The problems surface when we don’t understand the process in which we ask for things. Without the proper understanding we can just as easily create and attract the negative as the positive; it all depends on how we direct our focus.
You might be thinking, “That’s great, but let’s get practical. How can I start living a good life now?” Excellent question! That’s my interest too. Mine is a coach’s perspective. The goal of coaching is to use whatever tools we have available to help us become happier and more fulfilled people in everyday life. My personal satisfaction comes from being a part of that process. I encourage you to stay open to these ideas that may be unfamiliar to you, and be willing to try new things just to see if they work. To question and explore is all that I ask of you, my dear readers. So let’s get started!
I hope you enjoy the posts in this blog!
LIVE WELL, CHRISTEN
