Using the Law of Attraction

Universe might present you opportunities in ways you never had imagined
It’s a common misunderstanding when it comes to using the law of attraction that all it takes is to think. To live your fabulous life you need to take action, too! Grab the chance when it is presented to you.

There’s a wonderful anecdote that illustrates this:

A sailor got into a storm, his boat was wrecked and he clings onto the mast and prays to God for help. As a strong believer he is confident that God will save him.

After a while a cruise ship arrives. The captain sees him and shouts to the sailor not to worry anymore, they will rescue him.

“No, thanks, God will help me!” the sailor answers.

Then a fishing boat comes by and the fisherman throws out a rope and tells the sailor to climb into the boat.

“No, thanks, God will help me!” the sailor answers again.

The fishing boat sails away, but shortly after a canoe gets to the poor sailor. The guy in the canoe makes room for the sailor and tells him to climb in.

“No, thanks, God will help me!” the sailor answers for a third time.

Well, the sailor eventually dies and gets to Heaven. There he meets God.

“I had such a great faith in you, but still you didn’t rescue me when I shipwrecked!” he says to God.

“I tried to”, God answers. “First I sent a cruise ship, then a fishing boat and finally a canoe!”

The thing is, when using the law of attraction to attract what you desire from life, whether it is love, a swimming pool or the perfect little black dress you’ll see it doesn’t always arrive in the form or way you had expected. We have an already perceived idea of how to get what we want, but sometimes gifts arrive in disguise. Or simply arrive a way very different of what we had imagined.

 

You have saved up for that black dress and have a clear picture of what it will look like. You’re going to a party tomorrow night and have decided long ago that you’ll wear your new dress. You know exactly in which shops to search. Then, walking out of your apartment, you bump into your twenty years older, twenty kilos heavier neighbour. Telling her about the dress you want, she exclaims that she has the perfect dress for you hanging in her closet and she’ll give it to you. You polity decline, maybe even with a little laughter – thinking to yourself that there’s no way she has your dress in her cupboard, besides, you can’t just accept a dress as a gift from her! And what happens? You raid the shops, not finding anything. You visit every shop you can think of, but finally give up. Luckily, coming home, you find the most fabulous dress hanging on your door. And yes, it is perfect.

Using the Law of Attraction

See, the Universe wanted you to have this dress! Universe usually is on your side – all you need is to be open to the opportunities presented to you. Using the law of attraction means thrusting Universe.

We’re currently building a small holiday home . Originally, our budget didn’t allow us to by any expensive furniture. Then a Bulgarian friend told us about how cheap you could get furniture in Bulgaria, which is only one and a half hour’s drive from here, and offered to take me there. And she was right! I got great furniture for a fraction of the price I’d have to pay here. Buying a lot from the same dealer I was even able to get the stuff transported to my door step for very little money.

Unfortunately, many of us are presented chances like this and we don’t grab them. When I made a treasure map of the new guest home with the furniture in place I tended to imagine Universe delivering me more money, so that I could buy the stuff I wanted. Instead Universe presented me with a chance to get the furniture I wanted to a very low price!

Using the law of attraction means being open. Learn to realize when to take action, when a chance is given to you.
