How to Truly Attract What You Want

A new year is almost upon us and you, like many people, are probably thinking of what you want to be different in your life moving forward. Can you create the reality you want for the coming year and beyond? Maybe the real question is, do you believe you can?

The Law of Attraction has gained a lot of attention in recent years, especially after the release of the movie The Secret. It was Napoleon Hill who said: “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind of man can achieve.”

While many people are aware that they need to think and speak positively about their desires to manifest them, some key missing components are often overlooked. One of these components is the importance of believing and feeling the feelings of seeing your manifestation come into being. Perhaps even more importantly, we must remember it is our freedom, rather than our will when trying to manifest our desires.

Free will and manifestation

When we try to manifest something from a place of need rather than desire, we may not receive what we want. This is because even though we believe we need something, God (or the Universe, or whatever higher power you believe in) knows what you truly need to grow spiritually.

When we talk about the Law of Attraction, many people focus on the idea of “willing” something into existence. This can involve affirmations, visualization, or other techniques designed to help us focus our thoughts and intentions on a specific desire. While there is certainly some truth to this, there is also a deeper level of understanding which is often overlooked.

At its core, the Law of Attraction is about aligning yourself with the energy of abundance and positivity. When you do this, you create a metaphorical “vacuum” that attracts more of the same into your life. But to truly align with this energy, you must also let go of your attachment to specific outcomes. This is where the concept of free will comes into play.

When we try to “will” something into existence, we are often coming from a place of need, lack, or desperation. You may feel you must have this specific thing to be happy or fulfilled and are not open to accepting any other possibilities. However, when you use your freedom to create, you are open to whatever the Universe may bring you. Trust that the Universe knows what is best for you, and let go of your attachment to specific outcomes to align with the energy of abundance.

Taking Action

This doesn’t suggest we should just sit back and wait for things to happen to us. Using your freedom to create still requires action on your part. We must take steps toward our desires, but we do so with a sense of detachment and trust. Once you make your decision to be, do, or have, let it go. Turn it over to the Universe to manifest it. Be open to whatever the Universe brings to you. Be open to pivoting and adjusting your plans as needed.

Using your freedom to create also means you are willing to accept the lessons that come with your desires. We may think you need something specific to be happy or fulfilled. The Universe, however, may have other plans. When you are open to these possibilities, you can learn and grow in ways you never thought possible. You may discover the thing you thought you wanted is what is holding you back from your true potential.

Monitor your self-sabotage

Another lesson is the recognition of how you may self-sabotage when it comes to manifesting your desires. There are three key ways we do this: focus, self-criticism, and blaming others.

When we focus too much on our desires, we can unintentionally push them away. We create too much pressure on ourselves and don’t allow ourselves to relax and trust in the process. It’s important to set your intentions and then let them go, trusting that the Universe will bring you what you need.

Self-criticism is another way we sabotage ourselves. When you are too hard on ourself, you can block the flow of abundance that is trying to come into your life. It’s important to remember that we are all worthy of love and abundance and our self-talk should reflect that.

Blaming others is yet another way we sabotage ourselves. When we blame others for our circumstances, we give away our power to create change in our life. It’s important to take responsibility for our own lives and recognize that we have the power to create the reality we desire.

Being Aligned

So how can you use the Law of Attraction in a way that aligns with your spiritual growth and avoids self-sabotage? Here are a few tips:

  • Set your intentions and then let them go. Trust the Universe to bring you what you need to grow and learn, even if it’s not exactly what you asked for.
  • Practice self-love and self-compassion. Remember: you are worthy of love and abundance; your self-talk should reflect that.
  • Take responsibility for your own life. Recognize that you have the power to create the reality you desire and blaming others will only hold you back.
  • Focus on the positive. Rather than dwelling on what you don’t have, focus on what you do have and the good things that are already in your life. This will help you attract even more abundance.

In conclusion, the Law of Attraction is a powerful tool for manifesting your desires, but it’s important to use it in a way that aligns with your spiritual growth and avoids self-sabotage. By using your freedom, practicing self-love and compassion, and taking responsibility for your own life while focusing on the positive, you can create the reality you truly desire.

Trust in the process and know that God (or the Universe, or whatever higher power you believe in) has your back.
