Laws of attraction

I am reading something about birth, surprise surprise and she was talking about what we think influence what happens to us. To a certain extent I think that our thoughts to become our actions but then she went on to say that those that are struggling financially or never have enough money to afford things, talk about not affording things and so it is an endless cycle, with them not attracting wealth because of their negative talk. Now as someone in the position where we are stretching every rand to the max I felt a bit defensive. Surely there is a limit to how much positive thinking can do?

How much do you think that your attitude and thoughts control what happens to you in life? I know that self speak is vital and tell yourself enough times that you are rubbish and your attitude will start to display this. Having been in a relationship where building a person up was not on the agenda and my faults were pointed out frequently. I started to believe it, now I actually think I have a fairly good self esteem. I like myself, I recognize my flaws but I actually quite like myself.

Well I am going to start thinking about having enough money, not a lot, just enough. Lets see what happens. Maybe I just have to have really positive thoughts when I buy a lotto ticket 😛
So how much do you think your thought influence your life?

  2. I’ve also been thinking a lot about this actually, very interesting topic.

    Lately I’ve been keeping a little ‘visualization’ folder with various things like my ideal home, office, car etc etc, and I find that at the very least, it’s good for those days when I wonder what the heck I’m doing, and if I really think I can make my business work or am I crazy (and various other negative doubts!).

    I think that visualisation, and also positive thinking in the sense of having a very clear idea of your goals and what you want from life definitely can influence our lives… maybe it helps us focus better, or maybe it helps to motivate us to push on when things are tricky?

    I’m not one to believe in positive thinking in terms of ‘life sucks but think happy thoughts and it all comes together’ though – I think for me, it’s more about sending the universe/yourself very clear ideas and also learning how to be pro-active and work towards your goals.

    Try a visualisation folder, and look at it and think about the things in there (you can even put money pictures), and see… at the very least, it will help inspire and motivate when you need that extra push. 🙂

  4. I think positive thoughts have a lot of influence. I also believe big in karma. Give for the right reasons not because of what you expect in return. But when you do good, things do come back to you. Not necessarily in the form that you expect but the wheel certainly does turn.

  5. I try to be positive but shit happens all the time. I visualise myself wealthy (both materially and spiritually) but it just ain’t happening for me at the moment. Perhaps I should visualise myself being patient and waiting for good things, Who knows what might happen?

    The law of attraction stuff clearly isn’t working for me so, for now, I take it one day at a time and hope for the best.

  6. Julia I know that feeling, but then I did my blog post last night and looked back to where I was a year ago and wow good stuff has happened. I am blessed. While maybe it does not feel like it financially at the moment good things are happening. Good Luck I hope things improve

  7. In the words of Mike Dooley – Thoughts become things, choose the good ones. I believe that we are the creators of our own reality. If you see lack you will experience lack and if you see abundance you will experience abundance.

    For me it doesn’t necessarily translate into if I think I’m a millionaire I will get a million bucks tomorrow but more taking away that feeling of “I don’t have enough” and recognize that all your needs are met and you do have enough kwim? And the more we align ourselves with that feeling of abundance so we will abundantly attract abundance into our space.
