The Law of Attraction - How To Manifest Change in Your Life
The Law of Attraction is basically the law of life in general. It is the law of love. It's how geese know how to fly in a V shape and it's how we keep moving through our lives every day.
It is the law of love. Without it, and I want you to think about this - without it - what would there be?
That might sound silly to ask. But if you really think about it, what would there be WITHOUTlove???
Sure, I guess we could live and breathe, but without love in your world, it wouldn't mean anything at all! We'd probably just be a bunch of zombies walking around, lol!
Love is all there is.
The Law of Attraction really does come down to the law of love itself, aka, God. God is Love. Love is God.
Everything comes from Love. Somewhere, deep down inside, even if you're skeptical of it, you know this is true. Love is really all there is. . .
LOVE is the Power
There is no other explanation...
Everything negative is a lack of LOVE. Love... just is.
Love is the power that beats your heart and grows your hair without thinking, and turns a caterpillar into a butterfly.
Just imagine what you could do with that love and power within you if you harnessed it to bring about positive changes in your life. What you think about, you bring about. What would you think about then???
Everything needs LOVE to grow. You must fill it up with love, whether it's your life or your thoughts or your marriage or your job to get a good result. Negatives can not be removed, they can only be filled with love to make them disappear. Remember this.
Of course no one wants bad things to happen and there are many negative situations in the world today and there always have been. The choice of what to focus on, however, is yours to make because every negative situation has a positive too.
So you can focus on what's wrong with your world and get more of it. Or, you can focus on what's right with your world and how you want your life to be from this point forward and get more of that. It's completely up to you. What you feel, you will experience more of, and it will continue to build on itself from that point.
Looking back at my life - I'm 49 - I can see that I have manifested many things that I wanted by focusing my attention on them. Within this webpage (or lens for Squidooers) I will be adding stories from time to time of my own personal manifestations that I'd like to share.
Once I realized the Law of Attraction was working in my life and I actually tried to manifest things, it absolutely astounded me what I could do.
I read "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne about four years ago and, simply put, I feel this book has made me realize that the Law of Attraction has always worked in my life.
In Rhonda Byrne's book, "The Power", she explains it this way: Let's say you have a glass that's half filled with water; the water in the glass represents the positive, and the air in the glass represents the negative; there is absolutely no way to take the negative air out of the glass WITHOUT filling the glass with the positive water.
It works the same way with our thoughts. Fill your head with positive thoughts, there is always a better thought to choose.
God, aka, LOVE is in the ether, it's in the space between us, and the space that connects us all and makes us all ONE. We are all part of the same whole... no matter what religion we are, we came from the same source of LOVE.
Even if you've never heard of the Law of Attraction, I hope you will keep an open mind, and possibly at this point take a few moments and look back on your life to see where you have focused your thoughts and attention to see where you are today before you begin.
Rhonda Byrne - The Author of "The Secret"
Rhonda Byrne is an Australian television writer and producer, best known for her New Thought works, "The Secret", a book and a film by the same name.
By the Spring of 2007 the book had sold almost 4 million copies, and the DVD had sold more than 2 million copies. In 2007, Rhonda Byrne was listed among Time Magazine's list of 100 people who have shaped the world.
The first video in this series of videos below gives an overview of "The Secret".
The Law of Opulence - Wallace D. Wattles
Imagine what could happen if you said this quote out loud every day?
May I present .....Mike Dooley
Inspirational Teacher and Author of "Notes from The Universe"
If you are into The Law of Attraction, you probably know him well. If you've never heard of him, he is one of the teachers in The Secret and has some amazing information and insights into the way the world works and using the Law of Attraction.
His books and CD's are life changing. I just love listening to him and find his way of looking at the world quite incredible and find it very spiritually uplifting. His perspectives on life and the way it works may seem a little offbeat to start, but I think at some point during either listening to his CD's or reading his books, a lightbulb goes on and you will finally understand the universe a little better and be a little closer to figuring out what we're all doing here, lol!
If you're struggling with things in your life, please look into Mike's amazing teachings, and I highly recommend his book "Infinite Possibilities". He is one of the people who changed my life and if you open your heart and mind to his way of thinking about the universe, you will be a happier person for it.
It really is as simple as this...

The Science of Getting Rich
This book is a very straightforward, and step by step in plain English explains how to manifest everything you desire.
The basic premise is that having the desire for money and riches is not sinful, God (a.k.a. The Universe) wants everyone to be fulfilled with love as well as wealth so that we can enjoy the enormity of creation.
A must read or listen on audio.
Just Say Thanks...
.. and a stronger relationship may be your gift in return. Try to give a voice to gratitude you are feeling to a romantic partner or a close friend instead of just thinking about your appreciation and it will pay off.
Studies have been done to show that people who speak up and say "thank you" out loud rated their relationship as stronger and themselves as more likely to respond to their partner or friend's needs without expecting something in return.
It has been proven by researchers that a simple thank you will inspire the giver as well as the receiver and propel couples in an upward spiral of increasing appreciation and willingness to help each other.
Why not try it, what have you got to lose? A few thank yous???
My Story (well, the first one anyway - more to follow at a later date...)
How I started intentionally manifesting things into my life
The Story of the Blue Rubber Ball: Recently I worked in an office doing data entry. The room was about 40 ft. x 30 ft. with wooden floors and approximately 15 work stations that were approximately 2 ft. x 3 ft. with computers on each one. In addition, the room had tight security because we work with people's private documents so we needed card keys to enter the room as it was locked at all times.
I thought of a blue rubber ball because I was thinking of my Cockapoo,Tucker, who loves blue rubber balls. After trying to manifest a blue rubber ball into my life for maybe a day or two one of the people I work with picked up a blue rubber ball (chills) off the floor under one of the workstations a few feet down from mine, and said, "Does anyone know who this belongs to?"
I did a double take, I sort of internally freaked out and couldn't believe it and wasn't even going to say a word because in essence it didn't belong to me, BUT since no one else said anything in response to his question, I actually did then believe I somehow manifested it, and told him it was mine... so I took it home and gave it to Tucker.
This is not what you could call a coincidence and it actually scared me initially after it happened.
At some point I thought the men with the little white coats were going to come and take me away, lol! Even though that sounds funny now, it's the truth. It still gives me goosebumps to think about it. After realizing it worked, I went on to testing it out on more unusual things...
This is Tucker, my little bear. . .the one who is mentioned in the "ball" story above
How I Got My First "Real" Job
When I think back to when I applied for the job that I had for five years and loved, I realize now that the Law of Attraction was in play. Then, not so much.
I graduated from a two-year business college in June of 1983 and through a temp agency went to work for a small company that was doing incredibly well financially. When I started as the receptionist I still had a basic typewriter and was answering a multi-line switchboard, that's how long ago this was, lol!
In any case, after working through the temp agency for this company for three months of trial employment I was hired by the company to work as an executive secretary for the vice president. I learned so many things while with this company for the five years that I stayed with them.
At some point though, I started to feel the need to grow and wanted to work for a larger company so I began applying to different firms and interviewing with bigger companies. There was one job interview I went on that seemed like a good fit for my job skills but when I got to the interview, there were about ten other people waiting to interview for the same position. I wanted to run, just being honest.
I thought at first that I didn't have a chance but after my initial interview was over realized that I really, really, really wanted this job and I didn't care who else was competing for it.
I am not a competitive person, however, I just knew that this was the job for me and made a mental decision that nothing was going to stand in my way of going for it. I also became very focused and started imagining in my mind how it would feel to work for this company and mentally playing out over and over again what a typical day would be like there.
Long story short, if it's not too late for that, lol!, I got the job! After the interview was over, I made it a specific point to ask the woman who interviewed me when a decision would be made because I knew there were so many people going for the job and didn't want to sit around waiting to hear nothing. She told me that I could call at a specific time on a specific day of the week to find out if I got it.
I called at the time specified and the decision had not yet been made according to her assistant... I called the next day and asked to speak to her directly.
After waiting a few minutes I got her on the phone. She said she hadn't had time to make the decision and to call back in a day or so to speak with her.
At that point, very out of character for myself, I told her how much I liked the company and that "I really wanted the opportunity to work for them." I think that made me stand out for some reason because when I called back the next time (probably the next day) it was for my final interview and I was offered the position!
Great video explaining how the universe works...
Change Your Life With These Ten Affirmations
Not many people know or understand the power of the spoken word.
Some even believe the spoken word is even more powerful than your thoughts.
There is a vibratory power to the spoken word.
Whatrever man voices, he b egins to attract.
As the late Reverend Ike would suggest, "What you say, is what you get."
Our subconscious mind is often recording what we say and what we think.
What you feel deeply is what you're attracting into your world.
Use your feelings as an indicator as to what you're attracting. If you're feeling bad,you're attracting, or pulling into your existence, more bad feelings. Be aware of what you're feeling.
1. I am a magnet for prosperity, happiness and abundance!
2. I am helathy, wealthy and wise!
3. Prosperity overflows in my life. I have everything in abundance.
4. Wealth constantly flows into my life!
5. Money comes to me in expected and unexpected wonderful ways!
6. I am a magnet for money. Prosperity is frequently drawn to me!
7. Everyday I live my dream!
8. I am always in alignment with my life purpose!
9. I have more money than I know what to do with!
10. My life's purpose brings me prosperity and happiness!
Say the above affirmations with conviction and feeling for 30 days, even if you don't believe them at first. They are best said in front of a mirror while looking into your own eyes.
Studies show that it takes between 21 and 67 days for your subconscious mind to actually start believing something is true.
This video explains the above affirmations and why you should say them every day in more detail
The Blue Butterfly
My wonderful mother passed away at the age of 85 on November 1, 2015.
She was a great mom. She was somebody who gave me strength. She had a strong faith and believed in God and was involved in the church. She had a lot of friends and she was always there to lend a helping hand. She loved her family and spent time with all of us and her grandchildren gave her tremendous joy. We all adored her.
I miss her every day even though I didn't see her all that much in the last few years of her life being that she lived in New York and I had moved to North Carolina with my husband and three children ten years prior.
But, in any case, I still miss her. There's just something about knowing your Mom is there in the flesh, even though you don't see her.
So the story of the blue butterfly starts with me on a day in July of 2017, about a year and a half after my mom passed away.

By the way... I am blessing this lens!
Patricia on September 09, 2011:
I do believe in the law of attraction and also have a lens on it. Loved reading yours especially about the blue ball and feather. I have never read Rhonda Byrne's books, but I have seen the Secret. I have manifested things since I was a teenager (I'm 41 now), but not everything. Nice to meet someone you!
agoofyidea on September 09, 2011:
I heard a podcast that recommended visualizing the journey. I like that because sometimes the end seems too far away or too big. Nice lens.
whiteskyline lm on September 05, 2011:
I love becoming more and more aware of The Law of Attraction. Such a great inspiring topic!

Good lens. It is something which happens with everyone. Nice..
katiecolette on July 29, 2011:
This is my favorite topic! I use the Secret every day. I have the book, the dvd, the journal. The "Secret" is the one book I recommend to all of my friends. "Imagination" truly "is everything."
Phaigan on July 21, 2011:
Great lens, very informative and entertaining. Thanks for the effort! Great job!
Ramona from Arkansas on July 02, 2011:
I've looked at a couple of your Lenses and enjoyed them. I too have the book "The Secret" I guess I'm just not comprehending it right. I do believe in it. I just can't seem to get it right. Seems I have opened a negative side. Do you have any advice to steer me back on the right track? I have a lot of negativity built up and need to change.
hysongdesigns on June 27, 2011:
The Secret didn't leave that much of an impression on me, but reading it paved the way for later finding Abraham, who I adore and listen to every day. I have manifested all kinds of money, some in very unique ways that I would never have seen it coming from that direction. Also right now I've got my vibe up pretty good and all kinds of animals come to me; like I have deer hanging around my house and have seen birds I never saw before. I know they were always there; I just wasn't a vibrational match for them before. Also many things I have been wanting are coming into being. really awesome!
