Where Attention Goes, Energy Flows

Be mindful of where your attention goes most often and powerfully, for that is what you are creating.

Do you ever get lost in daydreams? Do you ever close your eyes and get so swept away by some delicious fantasy or other that it’s as though you’re really living it? Then something snaps you back to the here and now, and if you’re a really good daydreamer, and you were very much “somewhere else,” it’s quite a shock to land back here in your present circumstances?

Ah, it was truly lovely while it lasted, wasn’t it? If only that could be your reality… Well, the truth is, it could be. Okay, if it was about living on Pluto or being married to the hottest celeb on the planet, you might have a little trouble making it happen. But in terms of wanting to improve the conditions of your life, anything is possible.

What is it you want? More money? Better health? The man or woman of your dreams? A house in the country? Or (e) all of the above?!

Everything in the universe is governed by powerful and unchangeable laws. One of those is the Law of Attraction – Like attracts like.

Think of yourself like a powerful magnet (because, in fact, that’s what you are). Whatever your current situation, you have created this reality by repeatedly focusing on it. If you have loads of debt, you kept thinking how much you hated debt and wished you didn’t have debt and wanted to be out of debt and you were more and more worried and anxious because you had all this debt. You thought like a person who was in debt. You behaved like a person who was in debt.

So, big magnet that you are, you attracted more debt into your life.

Many people have a hard time with this concept. They don’t like to think that they’ve dragged all sorts of misery and tragedy into their lives. They’d rather blame external circumstances for the bad relationships, the lack of money, or whatever else they think is wrong or missing in their lives.

But here’s the good news. If you’re responsible for having created the parts of your life that you don’t like, you’ve also got the ability to create a reality that you will love. And you do this by changing what you’re attracting.

How do you change what you attract? By focusing on what you want, and not on what you don’t want. You’re a vibrational being in a vibrational universe. You are constantly emitting a vibrational frequency with the electromagnetic waves produced by your thoughts and the universe will reply in kind. Just like with a tuning fork. It will resonate and if there is another one of the same frequency near enough to “catch the wave” it will also begin to vibrate and the two will vibrate more, producing one louder tone.

You are the creator of your thoughts. Where attention goes, energy flows and manifestation occurs. You will attract whatever is most often and most powerfully on your mind and in your heart. So don’t focus on how you’re going to fix what’s wrong, because then you’re still focusing on “what’s wrong.” You will only attract more of the same.

Instead, focus on what you want. You do this when you daydream. Close your eyes and visualise. Lose yourself in reverie. Imagine that you’re watching a movie trailer of the life you want to create. See yourself in it. Feel how wonderful and blissful and happy you are to be living that glorious life. Imagine it as though it’s already happened. Experience it in your mind and feel the joy and gratitude that it brings, for gratitude is the emotion that most quickly provides the fuel to turn dreams into reality.

Do this for 5-10 minutes at least once a day. And throughout the rest of the day if you catch yourself focusing on what you don’t want, take a few moments to visualise and feel the daydream again. Don’t think about changing your thoughts, just slide into the image of the life you know is already yours and feel it as if it has already happened.

Don’t underestimate that power of your mind. You are a magnet and you are attracting all the time, whether you know it or not, whether you believe it or not, and the universe will respond to whatever you are creating and visualising in your mind. You get to choose what that is. Good or bad, it’s up to you.
