Many people, who study the law of attraction, try to use the underlying rules very methodically and apply them like they apply every other rule.
They try to force the law of attraction to work for them.
I was one of those people. A control-freak.
But there is a very important part of the law of attraction, that I conveniently ignored: trust.
At some point, you have to trust that the law of attraction will work for you. And it will, because it is a law.
In other words, you have to give up control.
So, what does this look like in real terms?
Well, the idea is to avoid action for the sake of action.
Many people believe that you have to act a certain way to make things happen. That’s why they work extra-hard at achieving their goals.
This type of forced action doesn’t really work all that well.
Once you have clearly stated the goal you want to achieve and visualized it with the appropriate emotions attached, there is nothing left to do.
This is the point where you stop struggling and start trusting.
From then on, the best thing to do is just be.
Don’t even think about your goal anymore. Do something fun instead. Go play with your kid. Take your pet for a walk. Go to the beach or the park. Have a great meal.
Savor the exquisite pleasure of just being alive.
As you are doing that, you are allowing energy to flow and you will be able to feel that flow, too.
This way of using the law will have two possible outcomes:
Either, the thing you want comes to you in a seemingly magical way, or you are inspired to act in a certain way.
If this inspiration comes, act on it. Even if it seems unrelated to your goal.
This inspired action is usually the first in a chain of related actions that will eventually lead to your goal.
Don’t worry. If you are doing the right thing, you will feel it.
Feeling good is always your indication that you are on the right track.
