Affirmations: How To Fool The Law of Attraction and Get "I Am" Working For You

Affirmations are a very powerful tool we can use to harness the power of the law of attraction to get the results we desire.  When you state the words "I am" the Universe is listening and the law of attraction sends you experiences to support the "I am-ness" of your statement. Sounds simple, right?

Ah, but there's a catch.  The Universe isn't just listening to your statement.  It's also feeling your vibrations surrounding that statement and if the two don't gel, the law of attraction will always send you what you are feeling. 

For example, you may state "I am wealthy", but that nagging little voice inside your head says "Are you kidding?  Have you seen your bank balance? You are not wealthy!" We can always feel the discord between the two competing voices, yours and that little bugger, which controls your reactions, or feelings. The law of attraction responds to your feelings, so in the above case, it will send you experiences that support your feelings of not being wealthy. 

Uh oh, well that sucks, you're thinking. How am I suppose to use affirmations to get where I want to go, when my feelings betray me? (Ah, geez, now I sound like Darth Vader)

Okay, I get it.  Seems impossible, doesn't it?  Well, it isn't.  The good news is that the law of attraction cannot tell the difference between what is "real" and what is "imagined".  It works purely based on your feelings.  So, this makes it open to being fooled.  A-hah!  

So, here's a little trick I use to fool the law of attraction.

I close my eyes, and envision my perfect day.  Where I want to be, who I'm with, how I look, how I feel, you get the idea.  Then I tell myself, while imagining this scene, 

"Describe yourself" 

Before I go on, I'll share with you, that my "scene" is me on a private yacht (it's huge), somewhere in the Mediterranean, looking smoking hot (yeah, why not?), smiling as the sun shines down on me and my hunky boyfriend hands me a cocktail. 

So, I describe myself.

I am abundant
I am wealthy
I am blessed
I am beautiful
I am confident
I am happy
I am loved
I am sexy
I am relaxed

And so on, and so on.  I do this for a few minutes at a time, 2 or 3 times a day (I mean, I have a life, I can't sit and visualise all day long, can I?) I often repeat myself several times too, so don't struggle trying to come up with new words. Just let it flow.

When I do this, I can believe all of the above and more importantly I FEEL all of the above.  I get goosebumps, and a big smile on my face, and just like that, I've fooled the law of attraction. 

Try it out and see if it works for you.  You'll know it's worked by the way you feel, and remember, in the beginning, your feeling is a manifestation.  Keep going and see what else turns up.
