What You Need To Do FIRST Before Attempting To Manifest Anything

Since my last post, I have a really great update on Dolly -- she was spotted in our yard last night, and has been eating the food left for her in the porch! Just fifteen minutes before my mother saw her I had tried a law of attraction manifesting technique that I'd never done before, and needless to say I was blown away by the sign. When she's back in our house for good I'll share what that was and what I did to attract her back, but for today's post I wanted to write about something that I've finally learned about the law of attraction (that I believe was the key to attracting her back to the yard.)

So many law of attraction books that I have read pretty much say, "Think the thoughts and feel the feelings and you will attract what you want." That is correct to a degree, but those instructions are missing something that just doesn't get mentioned much in most LOA books, except for the ones by Abraham-Hicks (and in fact, what I'm about to tell you is pretty much at the CORE of their teachings.)

What's the missing tip? You need to get happy first, plain and simple. You need to get to feeling REALLY great and flying high emotionally. Abraham-Hicks refers to it as "getting on your high flying disc." I know that sounds weird and really woo-woo New Agey, but they are absolutely correct because that is where I was yesterday, and the day before.

I've been thinking of it in this way: if you're in a crappy mood, and you try to manifest something, you're sending out a radio signal to the universe that's full of static, interruptions, and interference. The universe can't receive your signal when it's boggled down by negative thoughts and feelings.

But when you're feeling pretty good and your resistance has evaporated and you intend something from the universe, now you're sending out a strong signal that is made up of pure, positive energy. Now the universe is going to hear that energy loud and clear and it's going to more easily set things in motion to orchestrate the manifestation for you.

The best way to get onto the high flying disc is to try to start your day on the right foot as much as possible.

Yesterday when I woke up, before I even got out of bed, I immediately started appreciating as much as I could...the bed I was in, the soft pillow beneath my head, the beautiful house I live in and the safe, suburban neighborhood that it's located in.

I appreciated my slippers, my robe, and my coffee and breakfast. The night before, I had made out a gratitude list in my journal of ten things that I was truly grateful for and felt the feelings.

I washed up and put on makeup even though I wasn't planning on going anywhere. I just liked the way it made me felt, and I intended to do everything that I could that was going to make me feel good and happy. I worked on some articles for my freelance job, and I did some knitting, and I listened to a ton of videos by a guy on YouTube whose channel I discovered the other day, all about his personal experiences with the law of attraction and the techniques he uses. Most of his videos are about the importance of getting to that good feeling place and making sure he feels great every day, before he even attempts to manifest.

So that's what I did. I didn't need any conditions in my life to change -- all was well. And all day long, I "felt" Dolly in the house. I decided not to worry about where she was or anything that may or may not be happening to her. I felt her rubbing on me, "saw" her in her cat condo watching birds from the window, and "heard" her squeaky little meow when she's waiting for her food. I felt the way I feel when she greets me in the morning or when I come home after venturing out. I had zero negativity and resistance all day.

After doing the exercise I said I would talk about in another post, I then read out loud what I wrote, and put the journal away. I watched clips from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (because it's my favorite childhood movie and I loved Gene Wilder, who just passed away this week.) I knew it would continue to help me feel good and also take my mind off of the cat. Fifteen minutes later, my mother was calling Dolly's name and said she saw her on our patio. 

Of course, you're not going to feel great every day, and every minute of the day, but that's OK. You can just work on moving in the direction of feeling better, and don't bother trying to manifest anything until you are in a really good place. It's all about tending to how you feel and maintaining it when you can.
