This weekend I had time completely alone to relax and realign. My Saturday morning, after a delicious lie in and a good breakfast, entailed kicking back and and watching one of Will Smith’s best ever movies – The Pursuit of Happyness.
It tells the story of Chris Gardner, who with a strong belief and unwavering visualisation of his end goal, overcame heart rending poverty and challenges in his life to achieve amazing abundance for himself and his young son.
I can remember feeling incredibly inspired and moved the first time I watched it some years ago. Unusually for me (I rarely remember a movie storyline!) it left an imprint on my heart and mind. At that time, I was unaware of the secret to Chris’ success – The Law of Attraction.
The Secret of Chris Gardner…
I have, over the last few weeks, been listening to many (many!) hours of YouTube audio recordings of Abraham Hicks (as made by Esther and Jerry Hicks). I stumbled across them when looking into the Law of Attraction and was immediately captivated. Esther and Jerry are clearly THE most knowledgeable people on the subject and when I want to learn about something, these are the people I want to listen to.
Just like the inspiration that came from the movie, so I felt inspired listening to Esther speak about the same secret sauce that brought Chris into alignment with his abundance. I also felt also incredibly privileged that I was attracted to learn about this secret that so many are unaware of. Their books provide the very best and most clear explanations of the Law of Attraction that I have come across.
How Can You Use The Law of Attraction to Create Your Reality?
The Law of Attraction says that, whatever you think about and focus upon, will become your reality. If you think about a happy relationship, you will draw a happy relationship to yourself. If you focus on financial abundance, it will manifest. If you focus on your dream job, it will be yours.
How you feel is a choice. You can decide to be happy, joyful, content and satisfied (no matter what your reality is right now) or you can choose to feel afraid, lacking and dissatisfied. If you make the decision to focus your mind on feeling satisfied and abundant, then the universe will feel your vibration and bring more of the same to you.
Believe that things will work out for you. Just as in Chris’ story, it may sometimes seem that things are not going well, but that is the time when you are just about to manifest your dreams. Know that this is coming for you and is currently under being creation. Relax in this knowledge. Let go of tension and fear and it will flow more quickly to you.
See your goal as already achieved. Speak about what you want as if you already have it. Live your life as if you already have the life you are striving after. In the words of The Alchemist “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it“. That, in a nutshell, is the Law of Attraction.
Chris Gardner focused on his goal. No matter what life threw at him, he kept the belief “things are always working out for me”. He knew they would. In his mind, there was no other outcome.
