Q&A: Where to Start with LOA?

where to start with law of attractionQuestion from a new manifestor that I thought y’all could help with.

Here’s his query that I’m soliciting your input on:

Thank you so much for your “GOOD VIBE“ articles and free e-book.

All things you state make sense to me.

However, so far I don’t know how to start in getting what I want. Too much LOA stuff to start with so I am confused as to which door to open first.

Thanks for any suggestions you can make about finding the right road to follow.

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like this manifesting process is a bit complex.

But it sure doesn’t have to be.

In fact, I think the simpler we make it, the better.

So where would you suggest that someone start with consciously creating what they want?

What do you wish someone had told you at the beginning of your journey about conscious creation?

(Thanks in advance for your advice!)

  • The one thing I wish I could tell someone (like myself 10 years ago…)?
    Create a habit of feeling the emotion of ease early in the morning. Anything you can do daily to actually create ease. For me it’s some energy work, meditation, warm tea drinking, sitting in the sun, and listening to music while writing generally about the concept of ease and stability. Then I feel the rising emotion over time and affirm the shift I’m feeling. Then, I make sure to feel and affirm the empowerment of deliberately creating that emotional state.
    By doing a daily ease ritual, when you want to go about manifesting stuff specifically, you already know how to approach it in an easy fun way. So many people make the law of attraction WORK, when the best way to “use” it is the exact opposite.

    Great discussion and great comments!
    What made LOA really exciting for me in the beginning was to show myself that it actually worked by manifesting something easy; a song that I wanted to hear. But you could choose anything.
    The most important thing is that you choose something exciting to you so that you will be glad to think about it for a few minutes every day. And don’t worry if it doesn’t show up immediately. If you keep imagining it, it must come eventually. And when it does… that exhilaration of manifestation will make you want to do it again and again!
    The other advice I have is TRUST YOURSELF! As you’re reading through these comments, notice the ones that feel exciting and interesting to you. If none of them do, peruse other materials and wait for that buzz that comes when you know you’ve stumbled on something good. That’s your guidance telling you the perfect next step. Have fun!

  • Oh my word, Jennifer.
    Can I just say I love that suggestion?
    I think that simplifies it more than ANYTHING.
    Just one better feeling thought after another.
    That’s all it takes!!
    (I got goosebumps!)
    So glad you posted that.
    And I love that you’re able to share your success with it even when dealing with depression.
    THANK YOU for adding that to the discussion!!

  • Jennifer says:

    There is one thing I have learned which really helped me build my LOA muscles and I offer this as my suggestion to anyone new to LOA:
    Notice your thoughts, and just focus on making them a little bit better.
    I was dealing with depression when I discovered LOA, so expansive feelings were out of reach for me. When I discovered the scale of emotions in Ask and It is Given, it helped me a ton. So I would notice negative thoughts and instead of trying to make them positive, I would first make them less negative or neutral, because at that time I had trouble believing the positive thoughts. What was amazing was how quickly the shift happened once I got it going. I liken it to one of those playground merry-go-rounds…when you want to change direction it takes a tremendous amount of effort to stop the momentum, and then shift it in the other direction, but once it gets going it’s easy.
    The other thing I wish someone told me that I learned from Jeanette is: Life is supposed to be easy and fun! So if I follow what makes me feel ease and enjoyment, it’s all good.

  • David, I know that’s made the difference for a lot of people – using some sort of release technique to clear the decks. I’m glad you brought that up.
    And Jen, mentioning your blog makes me think of something that we often underrate – that is the support from plugging into resources like your blog, this blog, Abe clips, Bashar quotes, etc. I keep a Joel Osteen CD in the car for this very reason, and spend weekends catching up on new videos related to this material. Immersing ourselves in this knowledge is a great way to embrace it.
    Thanks for chiming in, you two! 🙂

  • Jen C. says:

    I also agree with Cassie, that the self love piece is really important, because you can attempt to believe lots of new things, but until you really get a solid foundation that self is source, so I’d better line up with good things and not beat myself up or use negative words about me…the resistance is still there.
    My blogs offer a free self love report, and articles on using the Book of Positive Aspects and Rampages of Appreciation, which I really do believe in. Go general on all things until you are ready and steady.
    Real empowerment comes from doing a little work at a time. Then, what you know and believe about yourself is easy and solid. When you are there, you can accomplish anything.

  • David says:

    I wish that I’d known some really powerful and effective means of clearing out years of fear, worry, anxiety, and depression programming pertaining to the lack of money. If we are worried and have doubt surrounding our prospects of prosperity then that is what we attract more of….pretty much the most basic concept of LOA. I’m just now trying various means of clearing such as Sedona, tapping, etc.
    I believe that a great many people who desperately desire to change their lives need guidance in this area to enable them to “take out the trash” and make room for the positive programming. I hope this helps.

  • PAP, this one REALLY rings my bell: “So really it’s less about action and visualising and more about ‘acting as if.’” I could not agree more!
    Echoed by Amanda saying “feel it/be that person now.”
    Man, you guys have really good things to share! I’m so glad we asked this question here!!

  • Amanda says:

    I love that there are so many different techniques/methods from which to choose. My favorite one at the moment (and it feels like such a short cut that I wish I’d known about it a long time ago:-) is to feel in whatever way I can that I’m already the person I think I would be if I were experiencing everything I’ve said I wanted. This can be as simple as how would I wash the dishes (be more appreciative of my lovely dishes?)/how would I walk with my dogs (shoulders back more and smiling?)/brush my teeth more often?/compliment strangers often?/spend more time seeing all the glorious things in my life?/smile more? And then I do whatever I can to be that person right now. Of course, I believe that “me” already exists, so I’m just consciously morphing into her as often as I can. The best part is that she’s so relaxed!

  • Practically Always Pollyanna says:

    It might be a slightly unconventional one, since in an LOA savvy world we’re not encouraged to look at our history too much – for obvious reasons! But I found – and still do find – that picking out some of the synchronicities in my past life has really helped me understand how powerful I have been at doing things right (and wrong). Likewise, just quietly observing people around me and the synchronicity in their lives, that really boosted my understanding too and made me realise that above all, it’s about feeling good. And then it doesn’t matter how many things you want or how many rockets of desire you have fired off. They are all held there for you in vibrational reality and the better you get at simply practising the art of self-love and putting your good feelings top of your daily agenda, the sooner those things will start to appear in your life. So really it’s less about action and visualising and more about ‘acting as if.’ And I guess the thing I wish I had been told sooner was it’s all about the joy of the journey, not the destination, because you never get it done, in the sense that you are consistently going to want new things, new experiences. That’s what conscious creating is and it goes on… and on… and on!

  • You know, Kate, I think Abe says to actually start with that one first (love life) rather than love self. Since it’s easier for most people, and leads to self love.
    It DOES create a solid foundation, doesn’t it?! Great tip.

  • Kate says:

    I’m absolutely with Cassie on this one. Self love. All the way. When you and Lisa bought it up in training, it blew my mind. Making that a primary focus was a game changer.
    I think the next step is beginning to love life – the possibilities, the magic, what’s around you that’s fantastic at any given moment.
    You can only get to where you want to be by starting where you are. Build a solid foundation and anything is possible.

  • Janette, that’s a tip I wish I’d have embraced in the early days – don’t make it a big deal! Keep it light and playful and fun!
    Good one.
    And Namaste, I feel compelled to share your brilliant post right here so people can easily find their way to your method of releasing resistance:
    Great responses already – thanks, everyone! 🙂

  • Namaste says:

    What I wish someone had told me is…
    You can have anything you want as long as you first remove your resistance to it.
    Find the resistance releasing technique that you resonate the most with (all the techniques out there work, you just have to find the one that works for you), use it and then relax and watch the magic happen =)

  • Janette says:

    I like Drew Rozell’s comment “radical responsibility” – the concept that we create it ALL. Every single tiny part.
    But that can feel scary or difficult, so I would add an equal measure of radical self-love, since responsibility can bring along its nasty cousin, self-blame. I reckon if you can master those two AT THE SAME TIME, the rest is mere details.
    And for the details? Find one technique that sounds like fun, and do that for a month while observing nothing more than how it makes you feel. The feeling is the real manifestation, after all – you only want that thing you want because of how you believe it will make you feel. So notice how that technique is helping you line up with that feeling.
    My favourites revolve around scripting out the future I want, as though it were already true, the way Jeannette describes in Pray Rain Journal (though I have my own twist on it). Yours might be more visual, like a Pinterest board for collecting images of your dream.
    Play! Keep it light and engage a spirit of curiosity. Ooh, I wonder what will happen if…..? Wouldn’t it be cool if…..?
    Hope that helps 🙂

  • So huge, Ashley! That habit of appreciation is a game-changer!
    I think that’s why there are SO many manifesting processes designed to engage it.
    Great tip! Thanks for commenting!

  • Ashley says:

    Start by being grateful for what you have. Write down 100 things that make you smile, that you are grateful for and as you go about your day notice things that are very cool, that we take for granted sometimes, like the way the sun feels on our skin, how blue the sky is, how awesome clouds are, etc.etc.. Then notice the little things that start coming together for you when you are in a place of gratitute.
    I’ll give you an example, I was thinking that I needed to get a gift for a client and I wanted it to come to me easily as sometimes I have to wrack my brain coming up with an idea for an appropriate gift. A few minutes later I walked into a store for something for myself, not a place that has appropriate gifts for clients , and there was the perfect gift for the exact price I wanted to pay. Within that same hour I was thinking of a friend I wanted to see. I scoured the parking lot of her workplace for her car but did not see it, she wasn’t at work. I then walked into a clothing store next door to her office and she was standing right in the middle of the store, watching me walk in.
    Once you start noticing the small stuff and are wowed by it the bigger manifestations follow.
    Live in joy and watch all that you dream of unfold for you

  • Cassie, I couldn’t disagree with you.
    A person might have a hard time understanding the DIRECT connection between learning to love themselves more and being able to manifest everything they want, but there’s not much else we could do more powerful than that, is there?
    I can also relate to sacrificing enjoyment in getting caught up in “doing.” Good tip there!
    Thanks for chiming in, Cassie!

  • Cassie says:

    This might sound like one more thing to do to the new LOAer, but it’s not. Honestly, the one thing I wish someone had told me was to invest in the practice of self-love. My theory is the further you are from loving yourself wholly the further you are from manifesting success. Self-love is the practice that helps you get really clear on what you want, which creates a clearer channel for the signal of what you want to be heard. It sets you up for success by amping up your worthiness vibe and it keeps you up having a good time while you’re figuring out the process for LOA that works for you.
    In addition to self-love, the place where my success got off track in the beginning was not getting caught up in the doing and forgetting about the enjoying. If I were to go back to the beginning, I would have spent way more time daydreaming and a lot less time “working” on what I was manifesting.
