3 Law of Attraction Exercises to Really Get What You Want

If you have heard of the movie, The Secret, you have heard of the Law of Attraction, as well. The Law of Attraction is not something that simply comes your way; you have to put a little effort into it, as well.

There are techniques that you can use in order to make the Law of Attraction work for you so that you can get what you want out of life – and not just this life – but also, your life.

Learn How to Meditate Using Creative Visualization

First and foremost, if you are interested in utilizing the Law of Attraction to its fullest potential, make sure that you begin each day with meditation. Meditation is important as it brings your focus toward what you desire and what you expect for that day.

Creative Visualization is a powerful tool in creating the feelings behind the desire. It is not enough to just meditate on something you wish to attract into your life, visualizing brings it to life.

Creative Visualization takes it one step further by incorporating the feelings you are feeling as you see yourself

* Receive the reward
* Get the love you desire
* Increase your financial status

As you embrace the feelings of joy and happiness, you will see that more joy and happiness will enter your life. Creating visualization makes this happen by using your emotions as a trigger.

Learn the Art of Being Grateful

Being grateful means truly understanding how much we already do have without asking for any more. When you are in a state of gratitude, so many more things to be grateful for will come our way.

Take a look around you, there is so much to be grateful for, but you need to stand up and take notice. When you start to understand the simple blessing such as butterflies or flowers that envelope your life, you will feel more joy. Once you feel more joy, you will manifest more joyful events in your life.

Write Your Own Thoughts

If you really want to get the most out of the Law of Attraction, then you must consciously control your own thoughts on a daily basis. Sometimes you must control your thoughts on a moment-by-moment basis.

If you find yourself going into negative or self-sabotaging thoughts, you need to take responsibility in several ways.

* Think positively
* Concentrate on all that you are grateful for
* Give yourself positive affirmations

By creating your thoughts to show up as you wish, you create your life to show up as you wish, as well.

5 Simple Ways to Show Gratitude


Gratitude In 5 Different Ways

If you want to be a more positive person, sometimes it just takes appreciating the good that is already in your life. This can be done through expressing gratitude. Here are some different ways you can express gratitude every day.

1. Become an Active Listener

If you want to be more grateful of others and show your gratitude, be an active listener. This means not just hearing what someone says, but really absorbing what they are telling you. Don’t use your phone when someone is talking to you. Look them in the eyes and take in what they are telling you. This is active listening and shows the other person that you care about what they have to say.

2. Express Gratitude in Your Journal

One way many people like to show gratitude is by writing it down in their journal. This is something you can do every day, by writing down at least one thing each day you are grateful for. Some days will repeat, which is okay! Other days, there will be a specific situation that you appreciate. It is okay to just be grateful you woke up and have your health, that you have a job, or something as simple as eating one of your favorite things.

3. Always Thank People Who Have Helped You

Remember to tell people when you are grateful for them. Whether they have done something to help you, gave you a compliment, or were just there for you, this is a good reason to show your appreciation. A simple thank you is enough, but when someone goes above and beyond, really tell them how much you appreciate them and that you are very thankful to have them in your life. This little gesture means so much to the person receiving the gratitude.

4. Create a Gratitude Jar

If you don’t want to write down all the reasons you are grateful in your journal, try creating a gratitude jar. You can use small pieces of paper to write down one thing you are grateful for each day, fold it up, and put it in the jar. This is a fun activity you can do with your family as well, helping everyone to be more grateful. It is also a great gift for others, where you can personalize an empty jar for them and give them paper and pens to use for the gratitude jar.
5. Volunteer to Help Others

You can also express your gratitude through your actions. You don’t always have to be vocal about how much you appreciate someone else and how they have improved your life, but instead, show them through how you help them. Volunteer to help them with a big project, show up when they are going through a rough time, and invite them to spend time with you. When you go out of your way to be there for other people, they can feel your gratitude.

 

Why You Should Journal for Positive Thinking


As you will know if you are following along with our Positive Thinking Challenge, a
journal is an amazing tool to use for thinking more positively. It isn’t just great for gaining more clarity and venting your frustrations, but for your journey to being a more positive person as well.

Keep reading to learn about all the reasons why you should use a journal to increase
your positive thinking.

 

You Can Reframe Your Negative Thoughts

First of all, you will use the journal to help reframe your thoughts into more positive ones. This is one of the biggest hurdles of thinking more positively since you can’t control negative things that happen in your life. Almost every day, unexpected events will transpire that might put you in a funk, make you feel sad or frustrated, or just really affect the day you had planned out for yourself.

While you can’t control these events, you can control how you deal with them. You can use your journal to write down your negative thoughts, then look at ways to make them positive. We will talk about this more in a later blog post as well so you really
understand how this works.

 

You Find Out Why You Have Negative Thoughts

As you begin journaling all your thoughts and feelings, you will also discover why it has
been hard for you in the past to have more of a positive mindset. There are often
patterns in the more negative things you talk about, whether they are all related to goals
you haven’t achieved, your work or school life, or even specific people in your life.

It is important to be open and honest in your journal because that is how you will understand more about yourself and where your frame of mind comes from. By understanding WHY you have negative thoughts, you are able to make changes in your life to be a more positive person.

 

It Helps You Be More Grateful for the Good in Your Life

Lastly, we really like journaling for positivity because you can express gratitude. Being more grateful is all about understanding the good things in your life, whether it is your health, people, or where you live and work, and appreciating it. You can write down one thing to be grateful for each day in your journal, which immediately puts you in a better mood and helps you to think more positively.

Thank you for joining us on day one of the Positive Thinking Challenge. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so here. Today in the challenge, we were talking about making a list of reasons why you want to think more positively.

The problem with that is that you might not be aware of the many ways it can benefit you! So, here are some amazing reasons to be more positive every day.

You Can Reduce Your Anxiety and Depression

First of all, if you feel unhappy in general, or struggle with depression or anxiety, you definitely want to learn how to think more positively. This is not going to cure these mental illnesses, but it can definitely help reduce some of their side effects. If your
anxiety disorder causes severe panic attacks any time you worry about a specific thing,
and learn how to think more positively, you might just learn how to cope better and ease
those panic attacks a little.

It is also going to help you with general happiness each day, where you are not as
affected by some of the negative things that might happen.

Stress Doesn’t Affect You as Much

In addition to helping with anxiety and depression, thinking positively can also help tremendously with your stress levels. Stress can affect just about every area of your life,
including your physical and mental stress, home life, work and relationship with co-
workers, personal relationships, and so much more. To get a handle on your stress,
start to learn how to think more positively.

You Develop Better Coping Skills

Another great benefit to keep in mind is that you learn how to cope better. You can’t prevent anything negative from happening in your life, as that is what makes you human. But you can definitely control how you react to unexpected situations, and learn how to cope a little better.

When you are a more positive person, you take these little hiccups as learning experiences.
You are able to see the good and bad in any situation and find at least one positive thing to say about it. This can really help you deal with anything from losing a job or
ending a relationship, to a traumatic event.

You Surround Yourself with Positivity

Don’t forget that attitude and moods are contagious. We will talk about this in more detail later in the challenge, but for now, you should know that when you are more positive, others will be as well. It spreads rapidly throughout other people, so you are actually helping everyone in your life to be surrounded by more positivity.
