This week we are going back to basics, with a guest post from The Law of Attraction Toolkit team, who have written this article about 6 basics to ensure you start off manifesting strong.
Here they are, some easy steps to get you started:
1) Start Paying More Attention To Your Thoughts
Once you become more mindful of your everyday thought processes, you will begin to see what kind of things you are attracting (with or without the desire to attract them). Having a clearer perspective on your thoughts helps you to figure out which ones you want to reinforce using the Law of Attraction and which ones you want to excise from your life.
2) Define What You Want
Next, give some serious consideration to what you really want from your life. It might help you to make a list of several things (such as a flourishing career, a passionate romance or a happy family). When you’re just learning to use the Law of Attraction, it is simpler to pick one particular goal and devote all of your energy to manifesting that goal. If, for example, you choose a career goal, move on to figuring out the finer details. What sort of job would make you the happiest, why is it so important to you, and what would it be like to spend an average day in your ideal career? Having a clear image of your goal is vital when trying to harness the Law of Attraction.
3) Visualize Your Goal
One of the most important things that you can do is learn effective techniques for visualizing. Most people find that doing deep breathing exercises in a quiet room creates the right mindset for visualization, but you can find your own way to enter a meditative state.
The key is to build up a vivid image of achieving your goal, including all of the relevant sights, sounds and sensations. Let go of any doubts, insecurities or anxieties about the goal, and focus only on your desire for the outcome. Try to practice this visualization process on a daily basis, ideally at the same time each day.
4) Start Acting As Though The Outcome Is Inevitable
Each morning when you wake up, tell yourself that you will achieve your goal. You might want to say a few sentences out loud–these are called affirmations, and they can help you use the Law of Attraction to your advantage. Some people even find it useful to start writing short descriptions in the present tense.
Write as though you have already attained that great career or found that wonderful romance, and express your gratitude. A few sentences will be enough to reinforce your intentions.
5) Trust That The Law Of Attraction Works
When you first start working with the Law of Attraction, you might feel doubtful of its efficacy. However, there are vast amounts of anecdotal evidence supporting the usefulness of the law, and there are studies showing the impressive power of positive thinking. Many top athletes swear by creative visualization exercises, for example.
Letting go of doubts and concerns about the Law of Attraction is an essential step if you want to avoid blocking the manifestation of your intentions.
6) Don’t Forget To Work Hard
While the Law of Attraction is undeniably capable of helping you to get everything you want and need, it shouldn’t be viewed as a substitute for hard work. Continually taking steps to achieve your goal reinforces the message that you want to attract this specific change.
You will be most likely to use the Law of Attraction to its full potential if you combine visualization with consistent, sincere effort to achieve your goal.

To keep this short, quantum physics has already proved that you can affect things with just thought. That’s in a lab, not hocus pocus, not me just saying it… Real stuff!
If you want to go onto YouTube and search ‘the double slit experiment.’ Then you’ll see an experiment that’s been done multiple times and proves that matter is affected just by looking at it. Which is what we wish to achieve with the law of attraction.
So if we can affect things just by thought then how much more can we do with our minds? Well as I’ll show you later on, I’ve found this to be virtually creating the impossible. But, I’m getting ahead of myself!
The law of attraction is about manifesting, and that is making things happen with your mind. This is something, which we all can do!
A few of us are good at making good stuff happen and most people are good at manifesting bad stuff… But we are all manifestors! We just have different levels of skills when using the law of attraction in our lives.
Alexander Graham Bell most famous for his invention of the telephone said about the law of attraction, “What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists.”
The film The Secret really brought the law of attraction into the mainstream and has been seen by well over 200 million people. Plus (I’m guessing now) there’s probably another few hundred million people who’ve studied it a little or a lot in books and courses.
So a fair percentage of the Worlds population knows of it and understands it. But it’s not just a modern day philosophy…
5,200 years ago Krishna said, “When a person is devoted to something with complete faith, I unify his faith in that. Then, when his faith is completely unified, he gains the object of his devotion.”
2,500 plus years ago Buddha said, “What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.”
2,000 years ago Jesus Christ, said, “Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
1,400 years ago the Prophet Muhammad, said, “Actions are judged by intentions, so each man will have what he intended.”
I could go back to every spiritual teacher and they would all tell you about the law of attraction in their own words. So this is not something new, and this is not something religious, this is not something that a group of teachers have thought up to sell some books. It just is! And one day it will become accepted and considered ‘the norm’.
However, you have the choice of deciding if that’s right or not, now. It is not my right to force you to make a choice one way or the other. I will merely show you the benefits and costs of your choices.
So do you think it helps you in mastering the law of attraction to choose that, this is something real and you can control it if you learn how?
Or do you think it helps you in mastering the law of attraction to choose to, not believe it is real and therefore cannot help you?
When it comes down to the mind, the secret is to go with what benefits you…
So which one benefits you?
However, you do not need to ‘believe’ as that takes effort, and I’m not a fan of effort in that direction. So all you need to do is choose that it is of benefit to you and that it is real, that’s all.
Consider this, you can choose to just do that for now, you can always change your mind later… Does that now feel ok to you? You get all the benefit without any of the commitment, as all that matters is the benefit… Do you agree?
You may wish to pause to consider that for a little while and then come to this conclusion for yourself because it’s much more powerful that way. But as with everything, that’s your choice, I can only tell you what will help. You have to decide to apply it to receive the help. It’s a choice, and choice will always be the problem and the solution!
Choose to know!
People used to say to me all the time, “Do you really ‘believe’ in the law of attraction Andy?” No I don’t ‘believe’ it I know it – I choose to know it exists! This is not faith, I do not need faith to know that gravity exists even though I cannot see, hear, touch, taste or smell it.
Whatever you think is right, is right. I’ll explain that to a greater depth later, but a quick example is… My Mum recently asked me if I thought a particular supplement would help her health, and I said, “if you think it will then it will!”
You do not consciously ‘need’ to ‘believe’ in it, nor do you consciously need to ‘know’ it. However, you do consciously ‘need’ to not let ‘not believing’ or ‘not knowing’ get in your way of creating your desires. Although knowing it really makes stuff easy. But that’s your choice.
The law of attraction is simply a tool, and like every tool I ever used as a craftsman it came with a manual. The manual was next to useless in making you an expert in the use of the tool, and merely acted as a guide so that you didn’t stick say the chisel in your eye.
The real manual we create ourselves as we use the tool.
As time passed I became a better master of the tools I used and when I spent time using a particular tool then I became an advanced master of that. It is the same here. You are going to become a master with the law of attraction because you are going to create a manual for yourself as you become a better craftsman.
As I said we are all using the law of attraction all of the time. If you desire to know how good a craftsman you are with it right now, then just look at your life. But WAIT, you must not be quick to judge yourself here. I said look, I did not say judge, as there will be stacks of examples in your life right now of how you have used this tool in the most masterful ways to create what you desire. I’m talking about the good stuff, not the crud!
Some of these will be stunning examples of which others are looking to achieve. Not necessarily about money. So in order to use the tool properly, you use it in exactly the same way as you have mastered its use before, in other areas.
You simply have to look and see how you used it to achieve what you achieved. Then you simply can apply the same techniques to the other areas of your life which you feel are lacking.
So we all have this wonderful tool at our disposal. However, just to complicate and later simplify things for you… A better way to describe the law of attraction is as the law of creation.
Sure we get into vibrational alignment with what we want, and like attracts like… But what happens is we actually create the outcome we want in our mind by setting the vibration. We are all creators of our own lives. Though right now you may not want to hear that, if your creation isn’t going according to plan.
But just go with it and remain delighted with yourself, as later on I’m going to show you how you being the creator means that you can alter your results for real… So please don’t shoot me yet.
The law of attraction is not about wishful thinking it is about using structured thought to create the outcome you desire. Just as I fix depression, worry, fear, anxiety, stress, overwhelm and all pain in life with structured thought in the A Bug Free Mind Process, you will use structured thought here to become a master of the law of attraction.
As Earl Nightingale said, “Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” This is an act of creation not attraction. Well in my opinion anyway!
Energy is, Matter is not.
What that means is that energy is all there is. Everything is made up of pure energy, and depending on which expert you read then either all of the matter in all of the entire star system could be squashed down to the size of a pea, or that there is no matter at all. Wow, this is mind blowing stuff! Isn’t this stuff fascinating?
Now don’t judge it, just observe. Keep something inside you observing your reactions to what you are about to read. Don’t judge your reactions, just observe them. Judgement is weakness, observation is power!
Personally I have more trouble with the ‘pea’ sized amount of matter than the concept of no matter at all. Either way and without judgement we are just part of one great, great, great BIG sea of energy which, as proved by the double slit experiment, shows that ‘little old us’, each affects it ‘on purpose or not’ merely by thinking about it!!!
Personally I think science proving the law of attraction once and for all exists is one of the greatest discoveries ever made, as it stops the ‘absolute’ argument once and for all. As my friend would say, “I want some actual physical proof.” Well you got it! The law of attraction is more real than the chair you are sitting in!
So what does this experiment really prove? It proves that we can affect things with just our thoughts. Now I’m sure that most of people studying this sort of work will have already instinctively known this, yet perhaps you didn’t dare to ‘believe’ it was really possible to do on purpose.
As if you did dare then that would mean you were a ‘loony’. But we actually can! We can literally create whatever we desire in our lives. In truth, we of course are already creating it… We are just creating it by accident. The truth I think you will soon come to accept it is, that you are in direct control and the purpose of this course is to put you in control on purpose this time!
Talking about the Double Slit experiment for a second. The physicists basically showed that one particle of matter actually went everywhere it was possible to go, all at the same time! In other words, all possibilities happened all at once. Now this is clearly way, way off the comfortable map where we understand what’s going on. So to bring it back to more comprehensible practical stuff!
What you ‘want’ – the life you desire – already exists, you just need to desire it and focus on it in the correct way to bring it into your reality.
To do this deliberately you must act as if you already have what you desire, because of course you already do have it! If it can happen, if it can be conceived, then it has already happened and it can be a reality for you, you just need to bring it into your physical reality consciously…
Too difficult huh? Well you’ve brought your current reality into reality already – that didn’t just happen! You already know how to do it; you are just doing it by accident so all you need to learn is how to do it on purpose. This really is all you need to do to create exactly what you desire. You just need to look at what you did right in certain areas of your life and copy that into the areas you desire more.
Lack, limitation, doubt and unworthiness all set up blocks which are not in harmony with creating what you desire. Yet they are predominantly in use in the VAST majority of people… Which is of course why they don’t get what they desire, as you have and as I have.
We literally create our own reality, that’s each of us. Yes, you are fully responsible and that’s right, luck really does not exist! We really do live in our own little worlds but grasping this concept or fully understanding this stuff is a) not possible and b) not even necessary.
You just need to know it’s real, or even just know that it might be real, then you can create your chosen outcome.
Beating the odds…
But getting back to the film The Secret… What I always wondered was, it’s been seen by 200 million people, why aren’t there millions of millionaires out there? People have been shown it, and taught it after all… Surely isn’t that enough?
Well according to Wikipedia in 2012 there were only 12 million millionaires in the entire world… And millionaire isn’t that rich, as that’s assets worth just $1 million not including their own home.
And $1 million is a lot of money to some people, but that’s not what I consider to be rich in terms of money. But then again, the richest man is not the man who has the most, but the one who needs the least…
Do you realise that the odds of a person achieving the goal of becoming a millionaire in today’s world of over 7.2 billion people are about 600 to 1…
Consider this, would you bet on a horse with odds of 600 to 1? No way right, you’d lose all the money you bet… Well consider this, you are betting your life on it if you want to become a millionaire – that’s 600 – 1!
But to be very rich, you become an Ultra High Net Worth Individual and this is someone with assets of over $30 million.
According to Wikipedia in 2013 there were just 199,235 or those in the world… Meaning the odds against that are over 36,000 to 1…
Would you bet your life on a 36,000 to 1 outsider? Well if you’re trying to get rich, that’s the odds…
I achieved this and beat those odds years ago before losing it all. So consider this, is this something you want to achieve too? As that’s a lot more money than you need to live a fabulous life of ease and enjoyment.
You may wish to consider, do you want to spend your life attempting to beat those odds, just to get rich. Or would you rather spend your life doing what you love and get somewhere on the rich scale instead… As to beat the odds, you’re going to need to become a Master of The Law of Attraction…

This isn’t just a little report, its a FULL LENGTH BOOK, with 13 chapters, the next one is called “The Unlimited Power of Thought”.
These are the things I used to do, and what I sometimes fall in to the habit of doing from time to time that never gets me very far.
I am sure you can think of some more too!
There are good ways to turn negative feelings into more positive outcomes by simply changing our self talk language.
Rather than saying “The weather in the UK sucks so much I hate it” may be you can say “I am disappointed with the weather this summer, but this means I can save up to go on a decent summer vacation in the sun!”
Or “Great, its raining so much, I have to stay indoors and this gives me the chance to focus on my internet business so that one day I am free to work from anywhere in the world, especially where its sunny all year round!”
Try it and see what subtle changes in your self talk statements can do for you!
By this I mean spending hours a day constantly checking emails, youtube comments, facebook pics, profiles & updates, twitter messages, blog posts and pointless conversations on skype or your mobile phone, or doing the ironing and watching T.V at the same time as trying to concentrate on work.
Lets face it checking emails, facebook and any other social media platforms can be sooo addictive!
But if we have important goals we are trying to achieve they will take that much longer to complete.
3. Too Much T.V and Unproductive Time On Social Networks
Most of the highly effective people I know hardly watch T.V, read newspapers or listen to the radio.
They primarily use their social networks for actually networking with people who can help them complete their goals faster or answering questions from their customers or clients, rather than gossiping about what so and so did, or another bad habit, moaning!
The information we feed our minds is as important as the food we eat.. which brings me to..
4. Overeating Junk Food & Unhealthy Food.
We all know junk food can be bad for us, but very few of us are still aware how bad foods that are often labelled low fat healthy options can be too.
These can be often contain high levels of sugar (that is proven to cause early onset of diabetes, hypertension and obesity) and other artificial flavorings to make up for the lack of fat that actually gives food a decent taste.
Try to avoid all factory based foods, drink more water throughout the day and eat more fresh locally produced foods as often as possible if you want to be a more highly effective person!
“I can’t do any exercise, the gym is too far away!”
“I can’t possibly invest in education or a mentor to help me reach my goals faster, we are in a recession and money is tight”
“I am just not good looking enough to attract the girl I really like”
These are just a few of the excuses I have made in the past, that did not get many very far.
When you make excuses they just fuel negativity and become a self fulfilling prophecy. Stop making excuses and when you find yourself doing so then instead try and look for the hidden opportunity.
7. Lack Of Exercise
Sir Richard Branson was asked, what is the single activity that you do that you would say contributes the most to your productivity.
His reply was “Working Out”
All of the highly effective people I know work out in the gym frequently or play fun competitive sports that they enjoy.
Exercise also helps us to breathe more deeply and oxygenate our cells with vital oxygen.
Breathe deeply, exercise and eat low calorie nutritious food and you will have an abundance of energy to become a highly effective person that you were born to be.
This week Niraj Naik, a pioneering brainwave entrainment and meditation expert has collaborated with John Vincent (an expert hypnotherapist and NLP teacher, having trained directly under Richard Bandler and world renowned hypnotherapist Paul McKenna) to create a FREE mp3 called “Typnosis – Conscious Mind Primer”:
What if I told you that today you walked past $27 in nickels, dimes and quarters that you didn’t notice.
Odds are, that if you walked to work. That actually happened according to a recent analysis.
Now, that means that if you picked up every coin you ever missed out on in the past 30 years…. you would have an extra $295,887 dollars by now!
If EVERYONE in your extended family was doing it to you would have 2.9 million dollars!
Now, I don’t recommend you spend all day looking for coins.
But I do recommend you learn something from that
Money is everywhere. You just have to open your eyes.
It’s quite shocking when you really open your eyes and realize quite how much money is right under your nose.
The way to open your eyes isn’t to glue then to the ground, looking for pennies. It is about developing a positive and pro-active money consciousness. To develop positive beliefs about money and you ability to earn and acquire it.
This is the difference between you and these millionaires and entrepreneurs – they think in money, and they attract it to themselves!
Take a look at this video – It’s called the millionaire brain and I explain more about how the rich think, and how you can too, to attract money into your life:
This is a full first chapter extract from the new ebook that everyone is talking about; The Wealth Code.
How bad do you want to be rich? There is no way to get rich easily. No one ever became rich “accidentally.”
No one ever suddenly woke up the next day after deciding to become rich literally swimming in money. Similarly, no one has ever become a millionaire or a billionaire from claiming they had a “great idea.”
The success enjoyed by Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and every other insanely rich guy out there boils down to one thing: The follow-through. The execution. You could have a great idea but if you’re not desperate enough, if you’re not determined enough, if you’re not hungry enough to follow through and do what it takes, then you’re never going to be rich.
So, do you have what it takes? Do you have what is needed to become wealthy?
Let’s take a moment and see what the principles to wealth are. This report will use these principles in detail to describe how you unlock the secrets to wealth.
First, you need to evaluate your requirements and rid yourself from negative influences. In the section entitled “The Starting Point” this report will describe key factors for identifying your needs. Then, itemizing where the negative drag of life limits you from realizing success, you will learn to cut these ties that bind you.
Second, the biggest limitation to wealth is fear. Surprisingly, fear is self-imposed. It is driven by the subconscious mind using memories and emotions fed by conscious mind feedback. From childhood, life is learned by how not to do things. Negative events create the foundation of learning.
Worry, anxiety, and fear form the scaffolding of decisions. These are all abstract thoughts that have, at best, 5% chance of reality when using the laws of statistics. Adopting a wealth mindset requires you to think with positivity. Positivity is to face fear for what it is really. Fear is valueless. Fear is imagined. Fear is self-imposed. Laugh at fear, “Fear Nothing” and no one.
Third, wonderful ideas may be wonderful, but they are best left alone or even ignored. The section “Great Ideas vs. Great Execution” will explore the role of follow-through on great ideas. Most ideas are just that… great ideas. They rarely see the light of day.
Fourth, maintain your attention on the goal or final endpoint. Focus on this desired outcome. Follow-through is the vehicle of success. In the section, “Keep Your Eye On The Prize,” the value of attention is driven home.
Fifth, a critical gem to wealth is holding to the mindset of owning wealth. Most people are reared in a negative culture bent on learning from failure rather than success. The word, “no” is central to all development. The wealth mindset is a positive one that must be owned; it cannot be imagined. You must “Own it.”
Sixth, overcoming the fear of other individual’s skills is critical to unlocking wealth. The successful person of wealth knows how to harness other people’s talents and is not afraid to use it. Most importantly, the wealth mindset realizes there are many people with more intelligence, but who lack the knowledge to attain wealth. These individuals are very happy to display their talent if it is properly rewarded. It is imperative to “Hire smarter people than you” to realize wealth.
Seventh, most businesses operate as managers, rather than entrepreneurs. Businesses are coddled and cared for as if babies or gentle-growing plants. Still, all businesses have an expiration date. This is not necessarily for the business, but for the wealth-entrepreneur. Human behaviour is what it is. Boredom and interest patterns are always factors.
Business climates also fluctuate. What is a hot market one moment can become a cool market another moment. A new entrepreneur driving the business can identify a new mission to infuse new energy and profit. In the meantime, “Know When To Pull The Cord.”
