“I heard you mention during the February teleseminar call that you thought intuition was the ‘missing ingredient’ in Law of Attraction (manifesting) techniques. Could you explain the further?” -Sharon F. in Cape Coral, FL
Dear Sharon F.
Hi Sharon –
I love this question! Thanks for asking it. For those new to the concept, “Law of Attraction” or “Manifesting” is the idea that we create our own reality. We do this, in part, by where we focus our attention. Proponents suggest that if you want your life to improve, focus on the end result you’d like to achieve, not on all your fears and worries. There are lots of tools to use such as visualizing, meditation, vision boards and affirmations. However, I believe intuition is one of the key components to enable you to supercharge your manifesting ability.
Here are three things that you can do to begin working with the Universe to create a life you love.
Make Your Affirmations Fun!
Affirmations are powerful statements of intention. Good ones make you feel lighter, hopeful and uplifted. Below are a few general ones. Which one resonates with you the most? Or, feel free to mix and match them.
- I look within when I have a concern. My intuition guides me to a perfect solution.
- My intuition guides me to take action on all things that bring me joy, peace and love.
- All is well today.
- My life is unfolding in new ways. Things are getting better and better.
- Life supports me. My inner wisdom is always guiding me. I am at peace.
- Intuitive ideas flow to me and lead me in an inspiring new direction.
- The Universe supports me. My dreams manifest into reality before my eyes.
- Wealth is pouring into my life. I am open to all of the rich new possibilities.
- My inner guidance is there for me to call on anytime I need or want help, insight and clarity.
- The more I focus my mind on my desires, the easier it comes into my life.
- I have control over my thoughts. Right now I’m choosing to feel peace, not fear and worry.
Supercharge your intuition tip: Choose one of the affirmations that resonates with you. When you find yourself feeling discouraged, read your affirmation. Put it where you can see it easily — by your desk, bedside, on a mirror or in your wallet. Then, close your eyes briefly. Say your affirmation silently to yourself and ask, “What does my inner wisdom have to say?” Listen for the answer.
Feeling Good Again
Sometimes we just feel out of sorts. We’re off balance and things don’t seem to be working out easily. Here’s an exercise to try.
Sit quietly. Close your eyes and take a few deep, relaxing breaths.
Think of a time when you felt joyful, relaxed and at peace in your life. Spend a few moments savoring those memories. Remember the people you were with, the activities you were involved with, the home you lived in. Do whatever it takes to make the scene and your feelings as vivid as possible.
Ask your intuition this question – “What could I do to bring these good feelings into my life again?”
Supercharge your intuition tip: Pay attention to any thoughts, feelings, impressions and body sensations you have. There are many ways that your intuition communicates with you. You may find that the answer doesn’t come to you immediately. That’s fine. It may come in a dream. Or later in the day, you might just “know” the answer. When you feel ready, open your eyes and return to normal consciousness.
The Universe Wants You to Succeed
There is a Divine Intelligence that wants you to succeed. It wants you to be happy about your life and living. It wants you to do the thing or things you’re passionate about. That’s part of your mission here on Earth. It doesn’t matter what that mission is, whether it’s being a good mother or father, a great dancer, a whiz at accounting, an awe-inspiring athlete or a profound philosopher. This Intelligence wants you to succeed and will do whatever it can to assist you.
Take time each day to visualize and affirm your goal. In this way you add power to the vibrational energy that will attract your goal. Your feelings and emotions are an important part of this process. What does it feel like to have what you want? Use the power of your emotions as you visualize.
Supercharge your intuition tip: Each day take at least one step toward what you’re excited about. This might mean taking a class, going to an informational interview, joining a club or association, writing an article, making a call, or sending an e-mail. Your excitement is a message from your intuition about the next step to take. Whatever it is — do it!
