You have the ability to attract into your life the very things that you truly desire. When you want something so much that every part of you emits that energy, you can’t help but to draw those things to you.
Once you become clear on what it is that you want, you’ve initiated the process to attaining what you desire. But before we can attract what we want, we have to know exactly what we DO want. It is important that you phrase your goal as a positive desirable “want” rather than a negative “don’t want” so you direct your energy into those things that you want to see more of in your life. For example, someone who wants to quit smoking should make “health” their focus rather than the act of “not smoking”. Whatever we place our attention on expands and begins to show up more clearly in our lives.
The very act of making a decision directs unconscious desires and allows them to evolve to become conscious goals. When we absolutely believe that attaining our goals is possible we open our mind to new possibilities. These possibilities not only allow us to see ourselves making accomplishments but to feel what it would be like to actually have what we have been aspiring for. The energy and momentum created by feeling like you have already attained what you desire further attracts those things toward you.
At the time that my sister got engaged, I was still recovering from the effects of suffering a serious brain infection. The wedding was to take place eight months later and my sister asked if I would be a bridesmaid. It was two years after the initial attack and I was still quite dependant on the use of a walker for mobility. Of course I joyously accepted the honour. But one month prior to the wedding, I was still using the walker and could only take a few steps with a cane. When I had imagined walking down the aisle at my sister’s wedding I had not anticipated being accompanied by a walker. As the wedding approached, I had an ever deepening desire to be able to make that walk down the aisle without the walker. A week before the wedding I shared my aspirations with my neurologist and he quickly advised me that I was not yet ready to push my body. The night before the wedding, as we did the practice run through for the ceremony I had a deep understanding that I would successfully push my body.
The day of the wedding I brought both, the cane and walker, and just as it was my turn to walk down the aisle, I left the walker behind and grasped my cane. I saw the tears that were shed by my family and friends as I slowly and carefully made my way down the aisle. The pure energy of my strong desire and deep belief fuelled a new reality, and I reached the altar (where a chair was waiting for me) without incident. My sister still teases me to this day as she jokingly accuses me of “stealing her thunder” on her wedding day!
“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” – Anthony Robbins
