By now I'm sure most of you have heard of THE SECRET by Rhonda Byrne, that blockbuster book and dvd that introduced the Law of Attraction to the world. What a great introduction to one of the most basic laws of the universe.

The Law of Attraction states: That which is like unto itself is drawn. We live in a vibrational universe and we are all vibrating at a certain frequency all the time! Our thoughts are vibrational too and thoughts of love, peace, hope, gratitude are among the highest vibrational thoughts, while doubt, fear, lack, resentment are some of the low vibrational thoughts.

It seems simple enough to make a commitment to try to think only good and high vibrational thoughts, doesn't it? Simple in theory, hard in practice! The problem is twofold: it's impossible to keep track of the hundreds of thoughts that go through our mind minute by minute, and most of us have been programmed to observe what we don't like in our lives, coupled with all the negative possibilities we may encounter when stepping out to live our dreams.

How can you change that pattern? One way is to play the POSSIBILITIES GAME. It's fun and inspiring and instantly raises your vibration! And when you are in a high vibrational state, you attract your desires to you.

Here's how it works. Let's say you are this talented jewelry designer (yes i am!) and really want to own your own boutique to display your jewelry in. A typical pattern of thought may go something like this:

It's too expensive to open a store.
There's already so many jewelry boutiques around.
I don't know the first thing about running a business.
I don't have time to run a store and make the jewelry.
And on and on...

In the POSSIBILITIES GAME, you recreate new lines of thinking by opening your creative mind to all the wonderful scenarios you can come up with, and you ask yourself the question: What if....

What if at the networking meeting next week I meet a wealthy person who is looking to invest in a business and she just loves my jewelery!

What if my son's friend who just graduated college with a business degree offers to run my business for a year for free to get experience!

What if my new boutique is in the perfect location in town and people flock into it non stop and always make purchases!

Do you get the idea? Just opening your mind to the wonderful possibilities raises your vibration, activates a glimmer of hope and puts you in a state of attraction! Do it often, and it begins to reprogram your mind to think positively. And that is an accomplishment to be proud of!
