Here are the top 10 fundamental keys to attracting and receiving what you want without trying.
1. Want for nothing.
The verb to want can be defined either as ‘being desirous’ or ‘experiencing need’.
If you have a need for something, you are likely to be experiencing a sense of lack in your life. You may feel that something is missing either materially or emotionally and you will probably find yourself focusing on how unavailable it is to you now. Neediness is unattractive, it literally sets up a force field of opposing magnets and repels the very energy you are trying to attract.
One marvelous way to counteract neediness is to list all your personal and financial needs. Highlight only the ones that are essential. Choose only those items that can not live without (like love, food & shelter).
Focus on feeling grateful for what you have in your life now. Only once you feel full of love and gratitude will you start to create a strategy to get your fundamental needs met.
Next double, even triple the financial value of whatever is on your list and focus on feeling grateful for what you are expecting and receiving into your life.
Do this every day at a specific time and stick to it. Observe the changes that begin to happen and post your results in this post (hint: bookmark the page so you an get back to it easily)
2. Plug the leaks in your life.
Have you noticed how easy it is to overextend yourself. Everyone of us has at some time taken on too much or in a moment of enthusiasm or guilt. The sad thing about being overstretched is that our good intentions can turn into resentment and anger. Perhaps you have made a promise or a commitment that caused an excessive drain on your inner and outer resources. When we feel negative we tend to create stressful, angry situations so it is important to resolve the emotion and get back into a receiving state. To reclaim your energy and shed the stress think about the following questions carefully:
- Where in your life are you being sapped now?
- By what?
- By whom?
- Is there any way in which you are being over responsible or over controlling?
Often these emotional and time drains came from past issues that we are still playing out (all be it on a different stage). Perhaps it is time put a line under past events and to forgive yourself and others. You can also let go of old issues by considering and testing your boundaries and extending them. What can you do right now to take better care of yourself?
3. Increase your Self-awareness.
Our actions are primarily driven by our thoughts and emotions. How well do you really know yourself? My guess is not as well as you might think. This is because people are often taught to control and suppress their feelings through a belief that emotions make people less effective.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Feelings are crucial to good decision making and bring both insight and energy to any situation. Research into emotions has identified eight core feelings, yet we will each experiences hundreds of emotional variations every day. When we can become sensitive to our own emotional responses we are automatically better able to assess the consequences of our behavior and choose where necessary to modify our reactions to make the best of life events.
“A clever man knows others – a wise man knows himself.”
4. Pay attention.
Abundance and opportunity live in the moment, not in the future. What is happening to and around you right now? Are you fully aware of both the problems and the opportunities that are occurring in your world? Are you responding totally, in good time, right now? How well do you participate in life? What can you do right now to join in more fully? How can you make the best of your space?
“Be ready when opportunity comes…Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet.” – Roy D. Chapin Jr.
5. Learn from magnetic people.
Some people just seem to have certain presence don’t they? If you want to be more effective, spend time with people who exude the magnetic qualities you want to emulate. Be more interested in others. Listen well and more questions. Most people will be happy to share their secrets and stories with you. Willingly shed some of your ideas, attitudes and beliefs, and begin to watch out for and recognize those inevitable changes in your thinking, actions and behavior. Relax and you will automatically become more receptive and abundant.
6. Cultivate acceptance.
Lets face it life, from time to time life can be frustrating, harsh and cruel. People don’t always behave the way we want them to and things don’t always turn out right. What would happen if you let go of your assumptions and your agendas? How ever you may want things to be, right here, right now this is how things are. Learning to see life for what it is will free up your energy. Look for a purpose in what is happening Actively seek out a benefit and you will attract a positive outcome, no matter what.
7. Trust yourself.
Fear is like a mountain. Do you really believe that your life was meant to be an uphill struggle? Trust is like water, it follows the path of least resistance. You can diminish fear by developing self-trust. Imagine what would happen if you stepped a little outside your comfort zone each day. How much more confident and competent would you become? How much more would you trust your abilities to handle whatever Life throws at you? Isn’t it time to find out?
8. Follow your heart.
So much of our true potential for living is suppressed beneath a load of shoulds, oughts and have to’s. Often it is our own addiction to habits and our lack of imagination that stops us from taking an action that will make a difference to our circumstances (and perhaps even the life of others).
It is true that you can’t do everything you want to but, you can do anything you set your mind and your heart to. And because you can do something, INDULGE YOURSELF. Do something you want to do simply because you can do it. No more excuses. Embrace your passion and do what you want with love.
Giving and taking is a cycle in life. Sometimes we are the givers and at other times, receiver. What are your interests? What can you do that serves the life of others whilst bring you a sense of joy and connection. What would make a difference? Contribute whatever you can afford in time, emotional support and money. And then contribute a little more.
10. Plan for the inevitable.
Think big and then think bigger. Foster your ambition. Banish the words mediocre and adequate from your vocabulary. Get inspired. Commit to your success. There is power and genius in taking the initiative. Harness the power of your desire and enthusiasm and you will be an inspiration to others. What could be more magnetic than that?
