What do you attract?"

Do you believe in the Law Of Attraction? I do. Without getting too detailed or technical or philosophical, let's just say that I believe that that which you bring attention to grows. You get back what you put out. You reap what you sow. Like attracts like...etc, etc.

I have made a very conscious effort to surround myself with and expose myself to the things and people and experiences I want in my life NOW. I am not waiting. I am thinking about all the things I want to do, see, feel, become, experience....and I'm acting "as if" they are in my reality right NOW!

So what do you surround yourself with? What do you read, for example? Who do you hang out with in your free time? How do you make your living? How do you dress and present yourself to the world. These are obviously all our choices. So what do each of these things attract back to you? How about your thoughts? Your beliefs? Your feelings? Those are ours to shape as well. If we don't like them, we can change them. Yes...we can. Think about it.

Have you ever been somewhere and a total stranger starts laughing hysterically? How do you react? Nine times out of ten, if the laughter persists, you start laughing too. At the very least, you can barely contain a smile. That person put something out there and look what they got back. I know that's a really simplified example. But maybe its just that simple...

If you desire something, start acting, thinking, feeling and believing as if its already a part of your life. After all, it truly is a piece of you if it came from inside. Surround yourself with like minded people and they'll start showing up more and more. Begin to expose yourself to your desires and let the Universe know what you're after...dress the part, so to speak...or for that matter, quite literally. Read books, go to websites and watch TV shows pertaining to your interests. Use your social media to attract the life you want. Dare to step outside of your current comfort zone and make that call or text, take that trip, start writing that book, train for that marathon...Put yourself in the middle of the life you desire, whatever it is, at whatever level you can at the moment, and see how it starts to snowball. Watch the seeds you have planted begin to grow and flourish. 

It has to. It is the Law.

Within the seed of your desire is everything necessary for it to blossom to fulfillment. And Law of Attraction is the engine that does the work. Your work is just to give it a fertile growing place in order to expand --- Abraham
