Using the Law of Attraction to Manifest Your Ideal Life: Step 4 - Feel What it Would Be Like to Have, Do or Be What You Want

We're at the penultimate step of applying the Law of Attraction to manifest your ideal life. Everything is first created in the mind. This is the first phase of manifestation. There is a saying that if you can conceive it in your mind then you can hold it in your hand.

Our thoughts lead to our feelings or emotions which in turn cause us to act or behave in a certain way producing our results. Often, when we think about what we want there is apathy, apprehension and fear associated with those thoughts. These negative emotions actually push what we want away from us. True, some of your goals will make you feel uncomfortable but we have got to get the balance right. Bob Proctor says that a goal should scare you a little but excite you a lot otherwise the goal isn't worthy of you.

That discomfort indicates that in order to achieve this goal you have to grow and that's what goals are all about. Success Coach, Jack Canfield expresses this concept very eloquently:

"Anytime a goal makes you feel uncomfortable you know there's a stretch in there. Does that doesn't mean you have to stretch yourself every single moment of the day? Of course not. There's a rhythm of contact and withdrawal in terms of stretching yourself and then recovering and resting."

If we don't feel excited about our goal we will never have the energy and commitment needed to see it through. Our goal will end up like a half-baked cake - no good to anyone. The key to becoming excited about your goal is to imagine yourself already in possession of achieving that goal. Imagine what you would see, hear, feel, even taste when you have accomplished your goal. Savour those feelings; expand them in your mind and repeat this process over and over again, several times a day until you achieve your goal. Feed off this excitement and let it fuel your desire. The achievement of some of your goals will not be easy and you will need plenty of energy to see them through to fruition.

"The key that unlocks energy is desire. It's also the key to a long and interesting life. If we expect to create any drive, any real force within ourselves, we have to get excited."
Earl Nightingale

Have you ever noticed how quickly you can attract the things you don't want? It's because we attach a great deal of emotion and feelings to these things. We have no trouble in expanding those feelings, talking about them, imagining the worse case scenario and then wallowing in it. And the Universe responds. It always does. You will get what you don't want delivered to you via express mail.

So you have a choice. Going back to Step - know what you don't want and there may be tangible measures that you have to put in place to prevent what you don't want happening. After that, focus all your energy on what you do want. Feels much better, doesn't it?
