There are certainly gaps between The Secret movie and how to
apply the Law of Attraction. Many people watch the movie,
become all excited about manifesting abundance, think about
a life of prosperity, yet never take any action towards
achieving it. It's like sitting at the kitchen table and
humming in meditation while expecting money to fall through
the ceiling. It may be possible, however we don't seem to
have evolved to that level of manifestation.

Let me share a few key steps that you must do to speed up
manifesting abundance and prosperity in your life. When I
mention abundance and prosperity I mean in all areas of
your life: spiritual, mental, physical, social and financial.

Know exactly what you want
The biggest reason people keep falling into poverty or lack
abundance and prosperity is they do not have a clear mental
image of exactly how they want their lives to be. Most people
know what's wrong and can give you a big long list; some
even know how they don't want their lives to be, but very
few know the perfect life they would like to live every day.

By another name it is called a Vision. "Where there is no
vision, the people perish" (Prov 28:19); perish into the
grips of poverty, lack, sickness and fear.

Once we truly understand the mind, its connection with God
and our Body, and our mind's purpose, we can no longer live
by focusing on our current circumstances. One of the six
faculties of the conscious mind is our imagination.

The purpose of our imagination is to be able to create the image
of how we want things to be regardless of how our life
presently is. The challenge is that for most people their
imagination faculty peaks at about eight or nine years old
and hasn't been used much since.

By the time we become a teenager we are told to pull our
head out of the clouds and be realistic. Most people become
really good at imagining how terrible things will be,
and then being filled with doubt and worry. We must re-train
our imagination, create beautiful pictures of exactly how
we want our life to be and then live in that image with faith
and peace.

Here are steps to re-focus your mind and
re-train your imagination:

Step 1
To know exactly what you want, take out a pen and paper and
write down what is not working in your life. Could your
marriage be better? Do you have the money you need to do and
buy the things you want? Do you have an illness or are often
sick? Are you unhappy? Are you working at a job you hate?

Step 2
Now write on another sheet of paper in present tense exactly
how you do want each of those things to be. Don't just write
I want a better relationship, write in detail exactly what
you want to do, have and become. For example, I have a loving
fulfilled relationship with my husband. We spend time every
day together communicating and falling more in love. We enjoy
frequent romantic times together. Describe your life exactly
how you want it to be.

Step 3
Once you have completed that task, throw away or burn the
first list you made of what is not working. You don't want
to read or focus on that ever again.

Step 4
Re-read your new life at least twice a day, when you wake up
first thing in the morning and just before you go to sleep at
night. Just like a child, pretend that it already is and add
emotion to it as if it has already happened. Re-writing your
new life increases clarity, emotion and expectation.

Step 5
Only speak to others about how your new life is. Our words
create our world so our confessions or what we speak out about
our circumstances creates our circumstances. If you continually
speak to others about what's going wrong in your life then that
is what you attract. Start speaking with excitement about how
your new life looks.

Step 6
Have faith ... just believe!
Many people just want good things to happen and want abundance
and yet doubt about whether it can happen or worry about the
worst happening. This is using the law of attraction to create
a life that you don't want as we will always attract what we
emotionally focus on. Worry and doubt create the huge emotion
of fear.

Step 7
Be expectant and grateful. Expectation propels you into action
and draws you closer to your goals. If you really desire
something in your life there are certain steps you must take.
For example, if you desired to travel to Hawaii for a holiday
you would have to decide when you are going, buy a suitcase,
inquire about tickets, hotels etc. What do you need to do
right now if you truly expect your new life?

Gratitude is the other key ingredient which is often overlooked
by people but absolutely essential if you want to attract
anything more into your life.

If you are grateful for what you already have and expect more
with the faith that you will have it, your life will be filled
with a greater abundance that you now cannot comprehend. You
must be grateful for your new life as if you already have it!

There are conditions of receiving and that is first of all
knowing what you want, asking, and then believing you have it
already. In less than 30 days and with very little effort you
will completely alter your focus and bounce out of bed every
day with the vision of your new life. Your life and circumstances
will begin to change and you will see miracles start to unfold.
