When you begin working with the Law of Attraction more proactively, you may wonder whether you need to take physical action in addition to your mental and emotional exercises. The answer to this will vary according to who you ask.
There are people who claim that no action is needed; just directing the right frequency of thought and emotion toward a desired outcome is enough. Then there are those who believe that action is always necessary, because action is the vehicle through which all desires are manifested.
In my experience, it can easily work both ways. Depending on the situation, you may or may not find yourself needing to take specific actions toward your goals.
Here is a simple process to help you know for sure:
• Do the inner work first. Focus on getting your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and expectations into complete alignment with what you want. Don’t worry about “how” it’s going to come about, just focus on putting forth the right frequency of energy to attract it. You can do this by meditating, visualizing, affirming, making a vision board, and so on.
• Completely let go. Once you are in alignment with your desire, turn it over to the universe. Don’t worry about whether it will arrive, or drive yourself crazy trying to come up with a plan. Just step back from it and let it ferment for a little while. The length of time is up to you, but I recommend at least a week or two.
• Tune into your intuition. During this letting go period, turn your attention inward regularly. Tune into your intuition and ask if there is anything you can do to bring this desire into your life. You may or may not receive any insights about it. If you do feel a hunch or nudge to do something specific, by all means do it. If not, simply keep on the lookout for any opportunities that might show up later. Don’t try to force or hurry the process along, because you’ll probably end up causing more delays. These things have a way of arriving at exactly the right time, regardless of how we try to mess it up!
The truth is, there is no right way or wrong way to use the Law of Attraction. Interestingly, the way it works usually seems to correspond with your beliefs.
If you believe you MUST take action to attract your desires, guess what? You’ll probably have to take some kind of action. Likewise, if you believe that you do not necessarily have to take action, the universe will find a way to deliver your desires without a bit of additional effort on your part.
However, there are instances when you will be prompted to take action even if you initially didn’t believe you’d have to do so. When this happens, simply follow where your heart leads. The actions you are encouraged to take will ALWAYS be for your highest good, and they’ll usually be a lot of fun too! Learn to trust your intuition for guidance whenever you want to attract something, and you will be shown the way to get it as quickly and easily as possible – whatever that may involve.
