Go Bigger with the Law of Attraction!

You hear it all the time, “start small, attract a cup of coffee.” I’ve even said it myself, and it can work if you’re feeling overwhelmed about using the Law of Attraction. We’re used to thinking of smaller things being easier to achieve.

But sometimes that focus can backfire too, because smaller isn’t always easier – especially when it comes to the Law of Attraction!

One of the problems with “small” manifestations is that you really don’t care about them one way or the other. As we all know, the Law of Attraction is activated by your thoughts, emotions and beliefs. How much emotion can you generate over a cup of coffee? Little emotion = low energy.

Personally I love coffee, so I can definitely feel emotional over it. 🙂 But, do I need to manifest it? No. I’ve got some right in my cupboard; I can make a pot whenever I want.

I’m not trying to pick on this popular advice because the coffee isn’t the point, I know that.

But I want to offer some alternative advice for people who can’t seem to manifest a cup of coffee, a blue feather, or whatever other small thing they’re focusing on: GO BIGGER.

On page 95 of The Secret, Jack Canfield shares how he spent most of his early life feeling limited and focusing on lack. He says, “It was only when I met W. Clement Stone that I began to shift my life. When I was working with Stone he said, ‘I want you to set a goal that’s so big that if you achieved it, it would blow your mind, and you would know it’s only because of what I’ve taught you that you would have achieved this goal.'”

Canfield went on to set a goal of earning $100,000 in a year – quite a huge jump from his existing $8,000 yearly income!

According to Stone’s instructions, he spent time each day visualizing his goal already achieved. He made a fake $100,000 bill and stuck it to the ceiling over his bed so it was the first thing he saw each morning upon waking. Whenever he saw that bill, he visualized having a $100,000 a year lifestyle.

Through a few strange, nearly miraculous events (synchronicities!), and of course some focused action on his part, he ended up earning $92,327 that year. Does that mean it didn’t work? Do you think he really cared about the other $7,673? I’m guessing not, especially since he’s gone on to make hundreds of times that amount since then. 🙂

I see a few BIG lessons in his experience:

1) First, choose a goal that is SO MASSIVE that it would impossible to do it all on your own.

2) Believe, believe, believe it’s possible for you.

3) Don’t try to figure out “how” to do it on your own – let the universe help you.

4) Keep your vision alive by imagining that you already have it. Feel good – not “needy.”

5) Don’t worry if it all doesn’t work out exactly like you imagine. Most likely you’ll end up with something very close – maybe even better.
