The basics of Law of Attraction and Manifestation are quite simple... The harder part is that learning to USE IT is a continual process that never turns off, it ALWAYS needs to be practiced (especially in those anxiety producing situations when it is HARD to focus), and, it's actually MOST important to use the skills for all those little things in life!
...While most of us can easily focus on consciously using Law of Attraction and manifestation practices to get more money, attract our soulmate, sculpt our bodies, or fix some big problem in our lives, the REAL WORLD effects of Law of Attraction are more active in ALL the little things:
It's easy to imagine things going well and and focus on the positives when you feel good (and then to feel optimistic that your Law of Attraction and manifestation practices are working.) But, it's when things aren't so peachy that you REALLY need to go back to the basics:
Find a way to STOP, or, as they say in the Abraham Law of Attraction workshops, to "let go of the oars"; tell yourself to mentally stop, then take a second to re-focus your thoughts.
Taking one or two deep breaths is like a "cosmic refresh" button... While you are doing it, decide and declare that you want to feel good! This is also a good moment to remind yourself that it is OK, and you can handle it!
Focus your attention and thoughts onto what you DO WANT to have happen in the situation. If thoughts of what you are upset about, or "what you don't want any more of" keep coming up, try to "turn it around" and figure out what its' "opposite" might be. If all you can think of is that you want to feel good, that's a good start!
Identifying WHY you want any new experience is the beginning of the ALIGN part of the Attraction process; aligning your conscious intentions and subconscious desires with the feel good energy of believing it IS possible! Listing the reasons WHY you want something adds clarity, depth and positive emotional energy to the intention.
Take a brief moment to dream a little (or a lot) and imagine a NEW version of the situation in question, but with it ALL working out really well for you... Notice how much better you feel (even briefly) when you imagine it the way you DO want it to work itself out!
The REAL key to Law of Attraction and manifestation is letting go of attention to "what is", doing your best to NOT give attention to the problem - to try to relentlessly focus only on what IS working in your life. ...Make it your only goal to find things to appreciate that are in your life NOW!
SPECIAL NOTE: If these "How To Law of Attraction" steps seem like they are not working for you, or if "imagining it all working out really well" is a challenge to believe, there are definitely some other subconscious forces at work; most likely resistance, competing intentions, and/or lack of belief in oneself... Here is a brief introduction to some practices which can help:
This article is a just a basic list of the Law of Attraction and manifestation steps to be used in Real Life situations... However, there is so much more involved in each step while one is fine-tuning their Law of Attraction skills!
