Like everything in life, it’s super easy to fall in and out of the Law of Attraction and despite our best efforts and intermittent commitment, life can often get in the way.
When I first started to learn about the Law of Attraction and began to implement it into my life, I was entirely committed and determined to harness the power that I knew it had. I would wake up at 6 am in the morning to ensure that I had time for my meditation, gratitude and whatever other practices I was trying to use.
It lasted for a short while and sure, I manifested a lot, but it was never going to be something that I could be entirely consistent with and so, after a few months, things started to slip. It started small at first, with me neglecting my gratitude practice and eventually I stopped altogether.
Having known how long that it took me to get into that routine in the first place, I dreaded the idea of having to start again. So, I didn’t and then I didn’t and this went on for a number of drawn-out months.
Eventually, I was forced to acknowledge that my life was going back to the boring, uninspired place that it was before and I knew that I needed to get it back under control.
So, I started slowly and now I am back into a consistent routine and am using the Law in my everyday life. It took some work but I’m manifesting things left, right and centre, so it’s entirely worth it.
If you’re in a similar position and are looking to get back into the law of attraction, these are some top tips for you.
Be realistic //
If you have kids, work a full-time job or are a student of any calibre, then it’s probably going to be difficult for you to spare 2 hours every morning to cram in all of the practices. So, it’s better that you pick and chose the things that you rely on, isolating and maintaining those that pack the biggest personal punch.
Whilst I would personally recommend focussing on meditation and gratitude as the staples of your routine, play around with what works best and commit to just doing one or two things.
Once you’ve gotten used to them, meditation and gratitude can easily be done within a 15-minute timeframe. Find a time and method that suits you and stick to that. Don’t be over ambitious and commit to something that isn’t going to suit your lifestyle.
Back to basics //
Let’s be honest, when it comes to the Law of Attraction, most of us will have had our introduction from a now infamous book called The Secret. The first book that really took the Law mainstream.
It’s classic and is an easy way to remind yourself about the values, principles and basics of the Law of Attraction.
(Tip – the documentary version is on Netflix and the website is also a good place to start)
When I first realised that I had started to slip into old habits and wanted to start using the Law again, the first thing that I did was pick up a new copy of The Secret. It didn’t take me long to start appreciating the book again, as it reaffirmed my beliefs and inspired me to reinvigorate my practices.
So, if you’re in a rut and in need of inspiration, take a few minutes to just get back into the basics of the Law. Sometimes, that’s all you need.
Focus on your routine //
It’s much easier to maintain your practices if you have a rough routine that you like to stick to. As someone that prefers order and organisation, having a routine is something that works much better for me and I find that I am more consistent with everything, when I do have a structured morning routine.
Nowadays my morning routine is built around three key elements – my practices, my productivity and my self-care. Each of these is reliant upon the other and all work in conjunction with each other.
So, if you want to start using the Law again, make sure that you spend some time cultivating a consistent and maintainable routine.
Learn more about your why //
It’s easy to stay motivated when you have a clear goal or mission at the forefront of your mind. The Law of Attraction is no different because knowing you have an end goal can really help you to stay focussed and consistent with your practices.
So, if you’ve been really slacking with your routine, remind yourself of exactly why you started in the first place.
Prioritise gratitude //
If you’ve been on the journey for a while, you’re probably one of two things – bored of hearing about gratitude or already convinced of its importance. So, fair warning, I am about to wave the gratitude flag once again!
(Not to self, no one has yet created a gif of that, so get on it, Kay!)
If you can’t feel grateful for what you have now, then you’ll never fully achieve your manifestation abilities, it’s a simple but well-accepted fact.
There’s a short documentary on Amazon Prime called Using the Law of Attraction – it’s definitely worth a watch – and there’s a bit in there that I want to borrow. One of the people interviewed comments about a lesson that his mum taught him when he was younger. He says that his mother told him to always say thank you to people because that will help them to feel motivated to help again in the future.
This is the perfect metaphor for gratitude because if you’re grateful and thank the universe for the blessing that you already have, you are bound to get more of that back.
FYI, I know that sometimes when things feel like they are against you, it can be hard to feel all that grateful. But there are always things to be grateful for – health, family, friends, pets, the world – there are always abundant aspects to your life. If you can learn how to be grateful during the bad times, being grateful in the good times will be easy.
And the abundance will flow and flow.
Remind yourself why it matters //
I’m pretty sure that I suggest this step in 90% of my content and there’s a good reason for that – it works!
When you’re not using your manifestation tools and simply allowing life to happen around you, it’s easy to underestimate the role that the universe continues to play. So, take a minute to remind yourself! Sit down and list everything that you know you’ve manifested. List everything – the good, the bad and the ugly – and use that as your evidence list. Reminding yourself of this will help you to feel inspired again and this can cause miracles.
