The law of attraction is a law of the universe like the Law of Gravity. The law of attraction is simply; we attract into our lives whatever we are putting our attention on. If you put your attention on what you "don't have" or what you wish you "didn't have" then you've probably noticed that you keep getting more of what you've already got! So why not do the opposite - right?! Put your attention on what you "do" want! Simple but not easy. How do you change your thoughts to what you want? Here are 7 steps to help you use the law of attraction to create the life of your dreams!

1. Ask for What You Want

The first step to using the law of attraction is to ask for what you want. I can hear you saying, "That's easy,of coarse I'll ask for what I want!" Is it really that easy? Are you clear about which goals are yours and which goals were handed to you by others? They can get mixed up sometimes. It is important to be clear on what you want. It is so easy to think we want something when really it is a "should" We think we should want something. We think others want us to do something. So take the time to write down what you want in as much detail as you can. When you are super clear about what you want then it is easier to use the law of attraction and focus on your desires.

2. Living Life with Purpose

Having a strong "why" is what keeps us motivated to reach our intention. Write down why you want what you want. What will it get you? What feelings will you have when you reach your intention? This "why" will keep you moving forward and help you filter your activities. You will find yourself asking, "Is this activity moving me towards my intention or away from it? Put a great "why" behind an intention and you will attract it quickly into your life.

3. Step Into Your Desire

The next step is to feel the feelings you will have when you reach your desire. The law of attraction responds to our feelings. Visualization is a wonderful way to start feeling those feelings NOW. Take each of your intentions and imagine having them. Feel what you would be feeling when you reach your intention. Put color, sound and smell into your picture. Ahh... Enjoy it!

4. Clear Out the Mental Clutter

All of us have beliefs that we live by whether consciously or unconsciously. When we have an intention to earn more money or be financially free for example, we find out very quickly our beliefs around money. "Who do you think you are to earn that much?" "Money is hard to come by." These are beliefs that will get in the way of reaching your intention to be financially free. But guess what? You get to choose your beliefs! What belief do you need to have to reach your goal of being financially free? "Money comes into my life easily and effortlessly." or "Being financially free is easy to achieve." Choose beliefs that will work for you not against you!

5. Get Moving

I agree that knowing how to use the law of attraction makes life easier but that does not mean we can sit on the couch and expect our desires to fall in our lap. We still need to take action! When you are visualizing what you want listen for inspired action ideas. When you think of something you could do to reach your intentions do it and do it quickly! The universe honors quick and positive action.

6. Fall in Love with Your Current Reality

The one most powerful step you can take to begin attracting what you want is to be grateful. Look around you and be grateful for the good things you already have in your life. Be grateful for the beauty in nature, the relationships that you enjoy, good food ... You get the idea! Every time you focus on what you love about your life you bring more of those wonderful things to you.

7. Celebrate!

This is my favorite! Celebrating your successes is a great way to focus on what you want. Remember to celebrate the little successes as well as the big. Most of us over look how much we accomplish on a daily basis. We get out of bed, we fix something to eat, we take care of family, we show up at a job, we exercise... Now go celebrate!
