If you’re feeling even a teensy bit down about your health, money, life, and the future, then let’s do something positive about that, shall we?
Susan posted this a few days ago (March 2020), “Thank you Thank you Kim Bolsover. I have just listened to your audio, ‘Is the Law of Attraction Relevant to Your Business?’ Not so much my business, but your summing up has helped me enormously. With the news being dominated by corona virus I have been dragged into a very negative spiral but your comment about fears and anxiety really pulled me up short. I need to believe that the precautions I take to protect myself will protect me from corona virus.”
I’ve written and created so much stuff over the last three hundred years, that I often forget I’ve got great resources like this, so thanks muchly, Susan, for the reminder. When I read this, I realised this is the perfect time to talk about how we can NOT ONLY get through what’s currently happening, but how we can all turn this, and any other, situation into a positive.
I’ve added some of my notes below, although you should know that, when I get going on these webinars, I tend to veer off into the undergrowth and start introducing other stuff… so I recommend you watch the video and add any notes of your own.
Is the Law of Attraction relevant to your business?
I first came across the Law of Attraction being explained properly in 2008 when I joined a year-long business mastermind program with my very first business mentor, Phil. Successful people always have a mentor of their own – everyone from Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Deepak Chopra and everyone else who you might see as immensely successful has a mentor that they go to for objective input and wise counsel – and Phil’s mentor was, and probably still is, Bob Proctor.
Bob Proctor is widely regarded as one of the living masters and teachers of The Law of Attraction. Featured in the blockbuster hit, ‘The Secret’, Proctor has worked in the area of mind potential for over 50 years, and is the best-selling author of ‘You Were Born Rich’.
The content of the year-long program was two-fold – one half of it was to learn how to run a home-based business and the other side of it was all about understanding how your mindset is the key to success or failure in any aspect of your life.
Without the right mental attitude, no-one can expect continuous, predictable, repeatable success.
Recommended background reading
Phil introduced the group to a plethora of authors, thinkers from decades past, who had discovered that the way we think affects our results.
The English New Thought writer James Allen author of 1902 ‘As a Man Thinketh’ said, “You don’t get what you want … you get what you ARE.”
In 1906, William Walker Atkinson (1862–1932) used the phrase in his New Thought Movement book ‘Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World’, stating that “like attracts like.”
The following year, Elizabeth Towne, the editor of The Nautilus Magazine, a Journal of New Thought, published Bruce MacLelland’s prosperity theology book ‘Prosperity Through Thought Force’, in which he summarized the principle as, “You are what you think, not what you think you are.”
Napoleon Hill published two books on the theme. The first was ‘The Law of Success in 16 Lessons’ (1928), which directly and repeatedly referenced the law of attraction and proposed that it operates by use of radio waves transmitted by the brain.
Then in 1937, he published ‘Think and Grow Rich’, which went on to become one of the bestselling books of all time, selling over 100 million copies. In this book, Hill insisted on the importance of controlling one’s own thoughts in order to achieve success, as well as the energy that thoughts have and their ability to attract other thoughts.
In the beginning of the book, Hill mentions a ‘secret’ to success and promises to indirectly describe it at least once in every chapter of the book. It is never named directly, for he says that discovering it on one’s own is far more beneficial.
Many people have argued over what the secret actually is, some claiming that it is the law of attraction. Hill states the ‘secret’ to which he refers is mentioned no fewer than a hundred times, yet reference to ‘attract’ is used less than 30 times in the text. Most students of the book claim the secret is hidden in its title: THINK (i.e. thoughts)
‘The Secret’ (2006) was a film based on the law of attraction. It was then developed into a book of the same title in 2007. The movie and book gained widespread attention in the media, from such diverse outlets as Saturday Night Live to The Oprah Winfrey Show in the United States. Rhonda Byrne used the Law of Attraction to produce the film and then the book. She approached Bob Proctor who was the main ‘name’ and driver behind this.
I am giving you all these resources to investigate for yourself. This webinar is about YOU making your own mind up about whether the Law of Attraction is, or could be, useful in your business – or not.
Now let’s look at what I learned directly from Big Bob himself, all those hundreds of years ago.
How the Law of Attraction makes YOU the creator of your life!
By Bob Proctor
You have rich resources lying dormant within you.
The development of what lies there inside you will cause the manifestation of prosperity in your material world … the creation of healthy, giving relationships … and successful endeavours in whatever you choose to DO.
You simply must
- Decide what it is you want…
- Ask, believing that you will receive it… and then
- Open up and gratefully receive it
If it’s as simple as that, why aren’t more people wealthy, even gratified about the shape their lives are in?
Well, most people don’t take personal responsibility for their present results.
They honestly believe the cause of their current results lies outside of themselves, due to conditions or circumstances they have no control over.
Most people are ignorant of one very important law of life – the Law of Attraction:
You attract to you everything that is in harmonious vibration with you
To understand the Law of Attraction, let’s first understand its underlying counterpart,
The Law of Vibration
- The Law of Vibration states that EVERYTHING vibrates (everything moves)
- Everything ever created – from the smallest atomic particle to the largest skyscraper – is in a constant state of energetic motion
- What looks solid is not. Even concrete, glass and steel is energy in constant motion
- We live in an ocean of motion!
Your body, then, is energy in a high speed of vibration, fed by thoughts and directives from your brain.
Your brain as an object cannot actually think BUT you think with your brain.
Albert Einstein’s brain is kept in a jar somewhere in New Jersey; however, it is not doing anyone any good because Albert is not with it! It was the flowing, moving energy into his brain and what he chose to DO with that flow that changed the face of our planet and made Albert’s ‘brain’ famous.
Albert Einstein loved thinking – he was excited over the thoughts that surfaced. In fact, those who worked with him reported that he was often ‘gleeful’ with an idea.
This is exactly why Albert Einstein changed our world instead of just thinking about changing it.
Albert got emotionally involved with his ideas. He visualized their physical result on the screen of his mind and, to everyone else’s surprise, those ideas became realities that changed our world’s perspective.
You have every ability to change the world just as he did.
Albert Einstein had nothing on any other human being – not even you. He just knew how to move energy into theory, and theory into form.
Here’s how you become the next Einstein
As soon as you CHOOSE certain thoughts, you brain cells are affected.
These cells vibrate and send off electromagnetic waves. When you concentrate on those thoughts, you increase the amplitude of the vibration of those cells. Those vibrational ‘waves’, in turn, become much more potent.
It is YOU who is originating those electric waves, and it is YOU determining their density by your own free will and degree of concentration.
Since YOU are originating these waves, your Mind and Body move into a particular vibration. In other words, the thoughts YOU think and internalize (get emotionally involved with) are in control of the vibration you’re in. As you become conscious of this vibration, you refer to this as how you’re ‘feeling’.
Most people are not aware of the connection between their ‘feelings’ … what they ATTRACT to themselves, and the RESULTS they get in their lives. This is usually where the disconnect occurs.
That vibration (or ‘feeling’) you’re in leads to action. And that action creates the very results you are experiencing today!
See, when you understand the Law of Attraction, you know YOU have the ability to cause changes in your vibrational field that, in turn, create the results you seek – at your bidding – in your life!
- We generally let our outside world control our inside world
- We have to switch that
- Our thoughts dictate what we attract!
- We’ve got to let the inside world take charge of our outside world!
Take a few moments each day to monitor what is going on in your mind…
What are you thinking about? How are you feeling?
If you’re not feeling the way you want to feel, begin, instead, to visualize what you want rather than what you don’t want. Your vibration will instantly change. And when your vibration changes, your results follow that upward flow.
How to use the Law of Attraction
1. Relax your mind
Meditate for 5 to 10 minutes. Doing this will increase brain power and have your mind at that relaxed state. This step is optional but recommended.
2. Be sure about what you want
and when you do decide don’t doubt yourself. Remember that you’re sending a request to the Universe which is created by thoughts and therefore responds to thoughts. Know exactly what it is that you want. If you’re not clear/sure, the Universe will get an unclear frequency and will send you unwanted results. So be sure it’s what you want.
If you want more customers for your business, decide how many customers you can handle in the next 30 days. Look at your diary and be realistic. Don’t ask for 100 new customers if you seriously haven’t got the physical time to see them! Could you book in 3, 8 or 20 one-to-one consultations this month? Could you perhaps find time to run a workshop for a small group?
How many people can you truly work with in the time you have? How many will fit into the room you intend to hold the workshop in? How will all this commitment impact on your family life, work life, social life?
Get real. Get down to the practical details. Hoping and wishing for a few new customers are not great manifesting tools. Get specific and decide on exactly what you want.
Allocate sessions in your diary now for the next 30 days and decide exactly how many clients will fill those sessions. Calculate how many telephone conversations you will need to fill them.
If you would like to create more money in your bank account, then decide the exact amount you would like to create. Make a list of what you want it for, what you will spend it on, even if that includes saving some or all of it in a deposit account.
3. Ask the Universe for it
Make your request. Send a picture of what you want to the Universe.
See this thing as already yours. Visualise what you want. What is visualisation? It’s using your imagination. The more detailed your vision, the better.
If you’re wanting more customers for your business, visualise yourself receiving the required number of phone calls from clients who want to book with you. Hear the conversation.
If you’re creating more money, visualise the exact amount as a credit on your bank statement. See the date of the bank statement.
4. Write your wish down
Start with “I am so happy and grateful now that…” and finish the sentence (or paragraph) telling the Universe what it is that you want.
Write it in the present tense as if you have it right now. Avoid using negative terms.
The last line should always be, “This, or something better.”
Every day until your wish comes true, read your card, close your eyes and imagine your desire as if it’s happening right now.
5. Feel it
Feel the way you will now after receiving your wish. You must act, speak, and think as if you have already received it.
This is actually the most important, powerful step in using the Law of Attraction because this is where it starts working, and sometimes if you do this you don’t feel like you need it anymore because you FEEL like you already have it! And then the universe will manifest this thought and feeling and you will receive it.
6. Show gratitude
Write down all the things the Universe has given you. Be thankful for what you already have and be thankful for all the things the Universe has given you.
Say thank you for the new x number of new customers that you already have. Say thank you for the skills you have and the opportunity to help other people look and feel fabulous.
Showing gratitude will turbo boost the Universe to manifest your request faster.
7. Trust the Universe and believe the thing you want is yours
Imagine an alternate dimension that is almost exactly like the real world but whatever you truly desire comes true in an instant. See yourself in that dimension, where whatever you ask the Universe for comes to you in an instant.
Don’t look for what you asked for; this is where people tend to mess up. If you have to keep an eye out for an event that manifests your wish, it’s only telling the Universe you don’t have it and you will attract… not having it.
Be patient. Don’t get upset if these things don’t happen immediately. Keep the faith.
Don’t stress the ‘how’ of things. Let the Universe do it for you. When you take the Universe’s job of worrying about the ‘how’, this says you’re lacking faith and that you’re telling the Universe what to do when the Universe has far greater knowledge and power than human mankind.
