Most people find it easier to hold on to a bad mood rather than to shift their mindset to the positive. I'm here to tell you it's not difficult--you can shift your mood and mind in a mere 17 seconds. There have been amazing advancements in neuroscience, especially in understanding the power of states like happiness , gratitude, resilience , love, compassion, and so forth. There is now scientific evidence that we all have the power to rewire our brains, resulting in happier states, higher energy and productivity, stronger focus, better retention, and more.
I learned this technique many years ago in relationship to the law of attraction. For you nonbelievers, stick with me here, I am not going to get all woo-woo on you, I promise. The 17 second rule is simple and can help everyone. With this routine, which totals 68 seconds a day, you can enhance your mood, become more aware of opportunity, and increase the likelihood of making your vision and dreams happen. Several times a day, stop what you're doing and visualize , with as much intensity as possible, the strong, positive emotion associated with achieving your ultimate vision. A mere 17 seconds of holding these thoughts and feelings and your mind will begin its transition from a negative state toward an uplifted state.
A full 68 seconds increases the power of the thought. Why does this matter?
Because over time, your brain will form new neural pathways, which strengthen into habits through the repetition and the practice of visualizing, feeling, and acting. Therefore, the more frequently you devote 68 seconds to the visualization of your dream come true, the faster you will notice a significant change in your mindset. These two energies conflict. When they conflict, the self-doubt tends to win.
Like the banker in a game of cards. Another way to internalize this idea. If you are constantly fuelling the fire and adding energy to the positive affirmation always including truth then the tipping point will manifest that much quicker. Throw emotion and energy into everything you do. Even negative emotions can be transmuted into positive. Did you ever see someone red in the face with anger suddenly see the humor in a situation and burst into laughter? It can be one of the most beautiful things to witness. Do everything you do with emotion and the universe will love you for it.
The law of attraction brings a tidal wave of energy that flows through emotion. If humour and laughter are part of your source code and awaken something in you, then using this affirmation could represent an exciting breakthrough. They may take offence. Have you ever noticed how laughter can feel more true than truth? And, just as an important side note: Your subconscious is way, way more powerful than you possibly give it credit for. When you protect yourself from disappointment, loneliness, heartache and failure, you often deny yourself the thing that you want the most.
You swap risk for unhappiness. Maybe you already know them? Well, one of the things we protect ourselves from is perceived failure. They warn them not to be too ambitious. But ironically, that attitude can cause a mountain of disappointment and missed opportunity in the long run. It can also make you freeze like a rabbit in the headlights even years later, incapable of making decisions or seizing the day.
So give yourself permission to be a beautiful, tall poppy right now. The taller the better! The forces of abundance are searching for your tall poppy energy so that they can reward it. If you do something exciting for your future, the simulation and forecast of that future in your mind, changes in a flash. But is there a risk to going for it and trusting the laws of abundance to help you? There is no real risk to chasing your dreams.
My experience with countless clients over many, many years, is that all the risk…all the frustration…and all the disappointment, is born from not chasing dreams.
But please remember, there is a way to chase dreams successfully which is like chasing butterflies. Put yourself in the right energy field, and become a magnet for those butterflies. The more direct method of butterfly catching is so much harder. Friends and colleagues of mine who work in hospices or help people who are dying tell me the same thing again and again. I heard something very interesting recently from Mark Zuckerberg the guy who runs Facebook.
This guy built a company worth billions and billions of dollars so he obviously knows a thing or two about abundance. It was really interesting because somebody asked him the question about how you avoid disappointments. The person asked him: How do you avoid failures and that kind of thing? The law of attraction wants you to stumble and make mistakes.
It wants to lift you and be there on your journey of learning, improving and evolving. It wants to help you unravel your abundance like a flower coming into bloom after the storms have passed. Imagine if you had a party and you played chamber music and presented your guests with cucumber sandwiches. That way, all the right things and people will show up automatically. What you do is you take the negative person, or thing, or memory. Take my colleague Steve. He felt that his boss was having a negative effect on him.
Making him feel stressed and upset. You should try this out. The mind actually takes nice things…nice people…exciting opportunities and turns them into scary things in the wardrobe.
57 Law of Attraction Tips For People Who Are Serious About Abundance
As a side note, this tip on its own may not transform your life overnight. There are only two things you need to get right in order to get a suggestion, affirmation or thought to manifest into reality. I used to do a lot of work helping people to stop smoking. Again, this is often subconscious and it is a flawed assumption. Turn your affirmations into questions. If you ask the correct questions, the answers show up like magic. And you can have any life you want.
What life might you be living this time next year if you start mastering law of attraction the Ed Lester way today? Step 1 — Imagine yourself at the Olympic games standing on the winners rostrum. Hear the crowd roar. Feel the medal around your neck. See the glint of gold and the the winning flag being raised. A quick side note: This second step is key. It disassociates and makes your subconscious reach for the beautiful dream. If we spend too long associated in our goals, we just end up soaking our synapses in the kool aid and other happy chemicals, with nothing happening.
It leads to frustration and pain and stuckness in life. Train your mind to literally reach for your goals.
Book and Self-Study Program
Eventually your subconscious will chase them like a kitten chasing a ping-pong ball on string. Ever notice how travel magazines show a beautiful destination, maybe a white sand beach and azure blue sky? And, there is always a table and empty chair. Your mind is attracted to the empty chair. It wants you to be there. Goals are the same. The law of attraction is energised by the gap between here and there. So long as it is bridgeable see tip I worked with a professional footballer once. He was getting very nervous about shooting goals. He kept missing even though he was very talented.
I insisted that he kept watching himself on TV scoring goals and burned that image into his consciousness. Every time he had a negative thought he was to switch that picture, either on the TV or on the TV in his mind. And he was to surround the thought with positive emotions of love and respect for himself. I wanted him to actually have to reach in his subconscious. For a change, stand back and imagine watching these things on a TV in your mind.
Your wishes and dreams need to be energized the same way a battery is energized. This is why I recommend embracing the power of the reverse paradigm shift. Once, I was running a training seminar and I suddenly noticed a woman in the group with her jaw pretty much dropped onto the table in front of her. And it was like a whole new world lit up inside of me. You simply need to see yourself as unique in the way a mother sees her newborn child. Love yourself just as you are and the universe will carry you on her shoulders.
All affirmations and self-suggestions, in order to work really well, should be flavoured with identity— in other words, they should always reflect who you are as a person. Suggest you already are a wealthy person if you like. So long as it has truth to it. Many years ago when I was going through a terrible time financially, I explained to Ruth that I was a wealthy person who just happened to have no money. If you are broke or in debt, struggling financially, there is no reason for money to magnetize to you. However if deep down in your identity, you truly are a millionaire with no money you are still a magnet.
Embrace the idea of crazy wisdom. Everything you do is simply an extension of who you are. Sometimes, the key to a breakthrough is by breaking out of the day to day trance that we all sometimes find ourselves in. To embrace crazy wisdom and make the universe deliver every one of your dreams, you must be prepared to set the rules. Any rules will do so long as they suit your style, strengths and source code.
The key is to live your life playing a game in which the person who wins just happens to be the person who follows your rules. And that happens to be you, therefore the universe will declare YOU the winner every time. One of my favorites is Richard Branson. He has little involvement in day-to-day financial matters. He refuses to discipline or sack staff. Someone else takes care of those things. I wish the same kind of freedom for YOU… To be able to travel and live in peace…to sing your own song…to do as you damn well please…. When I was a child I used to wake in the morning charged with this creative energy.
For me it was an energy which demanded that I do something original. Something that had never been done before. I had a teacher once, Mr Fifield, who taught me that there was no such thing as an original idea. He was a nice enough guy, but we were spiritual enemies.
Our source code was opposed. Then you need to take the kindness and compassion you show to the world around you and point it at yourself too. YOU can help people in the most profound of ways. Ways which light you up and take their breath away. Make them cry with joy and delight in the possibilities. You can also get paid royally for doing it. Also, an important note: Sometimes the kindness, compassion and respect you show yourself may need to be a little challenging. When you give yourself a much needed wake up call, the law of attraction will flow into your life effortlessly.
Are you free to live your life in a way that suits you? Or, are you living your life trying to be what someone else taught you to be their Dharma? Take a pen and paper. Walk to a quiet spot by a lake or somewhere else tranquil. List all of these things and then commit to releasing them so that you can start to fly free as a bird. Can you imagine how freeing that feels? There is nothing so powerful as feeling free to be yourself and to walk your path. Always remember, no matter how lost you feel, the distance between here and your true path is millions of times smaller than paper thin interestingly this is the same for the gap between parallel universes.
Suggestions and affirmations always work best when you repeat them, not just consciously, but also subconsciously, through your moment to moment energy. If you study the super-abundant people, you discover they are carrying around a different kind of internal program. They have chosen affirmations of a different nature. They make the rules. You can do this immediately. Once you decide to go on this journey, do NOT accept ordinary results for yourself. Do not accept anything less than extraordinary expectations and standards. People will try to knock you off your path.
They always have been trying. The shocking thing is that sometime those you love the most are inadvertently keeping you off your path. Stick to your journey. Know and respect and, ideally, learn to really love yourself and your mission here. Discover who you are and your body, mind and spirit will evolve beyond anything considered ordinary. It was a posture issue. I was locking my knees then pacing around all day at training events. I was like one of those old boneshaker bikes with no suspension, traveling over the old cobbled Victorian streets. I was aching at the end of each day.
Someone showed me how to tweak my posture very slightly and hey presto, the supposed bad back was cured instantly. Likewise, an athlete or professional dancer with one small glitch in their technique can be coached to a much higher level by identifying and improving that one small thing which is hidden from their conscious mind.
Imagine the idea that you could be one small energy shift or belief change away from transforming your life and achieving dramatic results. The only thing is, if one of those links is weak, the whole chain breaks and your feel in disarray. Everything in your life seems to be in pieces.
I believe they are all vibrant beings full of potential and magical abilities. The key is to simply find that weakest link in the chain and strengthen it. I call it mental biomechanics. The law of attraction is knocking on your door and you just need to figure out the small action which will open you to its full power and potential. Be open to small, regular baby steps and huge energy shifts.
The two are like brother and sister. Regular baby steps and huge energy shifts are like brother and sister. Choose one thing which will make a difference and do that one thing with all the energy, emotion and belief you can muster. My mission in life is to help remove the energy of bullying from society.
I believe when it happens, it will change everything. Bullying is simply the witch burning of our day and it must be defeated. On the other hand, it could vanish in the blink of an eyelid. Things always happen remarkably quickly once a genuine tipping point is created through critical mass. Do it quickly, immediately and without any conditions in the same way you would spring clean your home. Our parents would disappear into the pub. Us kids would all be left outside to play hide and seek. I see the same game being played out in society today.
Greatness and abundance are searching for you. I can say this with total certainty. Sometimes we go to enormous lengths to cleverly hide our wonderful, beautiful, talented genius and strength from ourselves. But no worries, abundance will find you, the instant you leave the door open and show your true self to the universe. If there are infinite unique souls in the universe, then likewise, there are infinite secrets and ways to make the laws of abundance work.
To ignite law of attraction to work in the real world, one thing you may need to do is to create multiple channels of how you do things. Bring everything you have, know and believe to the table and slam it there. Why rely on just one secret when you have unlimited experiences, stories, tools and help at your fingertips? Refuse to be bullied, pressurized, or dictated to by other people and the world in general. Only accept love, respect and positive energy. Any compromise on this can slow down your journey, suppress your true source code and dim your light.
Allowing other people to dictate what you think…do…or believe is giving up your power. Freedom is always worth the journey. Stay safe, stay authentic, stay in love…. And again let me repeat. People accuse me of being a Pollyanna. A purveyor of the rose tinted spectacles.
I know really bad things happen to people. My principles and teachings were all born of terrible events and sadness. You show me one inspirational autobiography of a celebrity or successful individual in history in which there is not deep hurt and suffering. But how we authentically understand and deal with that pain…how we translate and perceive the bad feelings…and where we take the story next.
It was so sad. Eventually it was discovered he was a stowaway who had hidden under the wheels of a jumbo jet. When the wheels came out for landing, his body fell from the sky. We truly are lottery winners already. Be your authentic self. Follow your source code and your bliss. None but ourselves can free our minds. You know deep down, you have the power to step into a chrysalis…to metamorphosize…and to emerge as any butterfly you choose. Freedom is one simple, divine choice away from now. I always act as if that moment will be today.
This belief shift alone has proven priceless for me and for a great many of my clients and students. An energy block simply represents a diamond hidden in a lump of dirty rock. Your blocks and bottlenecks in life are ALWAYS signposts to your next big breakthrough…to your abundance…Release your emotional and energy blocks and let the law of attraction flow through like water through a broken dam. You came into this world with a natural way of being you.
I call it your natural swing. In my world, becoming abundant and making the law of attraction deliver BIG results is not about learning something new. One of the most valuable tips I can ever give you is to stop trying to manifest things. Manifest from a sense of being. Abundant people attract incredible things, like the ocean attracts beautiful sea birds.
Reclaim your right to be happy, joyful and adventurous. If you let them play, they play by your rules. The law of attraction bats for the captain of the game every time. Advice for people who are not necessarily energetically designed like Donald Trump or Floyd Mayweather. Source code gets the law of attraction to work by creating a channel through your unique personality and optimal style and energy. Other than this document perhaps. When I first developed the Abundance Index software, I spent months of hard work…tens of thousands of dollars getting there. I emotionally bled to get it made and working.
It was a great decision. Meditate through energy and not conscious thought. The most powerful personal development tool in the world is energy. And your personal energy is perfect for unlocking your destiny. In other words, you already have everything you need. When you learn how to harness it and get into flow…Look out world! As soon as you start looking for logical, rational answers, you risk disconnecting from source code. At the very least, be sure to balance the two. You can discover what works TODAY and get magical manifestation results quickly and without struggle.
WHY it works exactly, is a different story. Let the scientists figure that one out.
They may take years or decades. Meanwhile, you can be very rich and incredibly fulfilled. My answer is generally to pick a better set of beliefs. Choose beliefs that serve you rather than beliefs that have the power to turn you into a mental slave. In other words, unlock your source code and THEN you become a magnet for attracting other things. Consider for a moment what happens when you enter into a new romantic relationship, or you start a new business. You go into both situations very hopeful, but there is uncertainty too. What will it actually be like?
Will everything be ok? So why are those things exciting, yet so many people find the journey of life exhausting and full of fear and worry? But, the truth is you can frame a journey any way you choose. Just when you think all is hopeless, you reframe. All will be well in the morning. And it always is well in the morning. So I start to embrace the negative feelings that sometimes pop up at the end of a busy day. It showed this menacing looking skinhead guy running along a road, crossing a bridge.
He was clutching a handbag and running as fast as his legs could carry him. But then they changed the camera angle and you saw the entire scene from a different direction. Puffing and panting, he ran up towards this woman and handed her the handbag. Also, one of the biggest breakthroughs my clients experience is when they extend their horizons. They start to see bigger possibilities in themselves and everything. Understand, abundance really does have no limits. When I was a young boy I used to be taken to the library by my mother. I remember one day picking up a book about photography.
If you screwed a particular filter onto a camera the world would be seen very differently. Maybe a pink or blue filter. Maybe a fish eye view or something like that. I seemed to be enjoying myself more than some of the people I met. Sometimes I felt sad and wanted them to see the world the way I did.
You CAN choose happiness. You can literally hypnotize the universe to deliver it to you when you filter everything through the appropriate energy and beliefs. It causes us to assume that because a person is better than us at one thing, they are better than us overall. There are things you can do that nobody else possibly can. You are the number 1 undisputed champion of the world at being you. Nobody is better than you…more talented than you…better at making the law of attraction work than you.
The Law of Attraction Really Works: 1 Epic Story and 7 Powerful Tips
When you unlock your source code and choose your beliefs, this whole universe is a level playing field and you can win any game you choose to play. Doing the things other people do, or searching for the rules where there are none. This is like wandering around hopelessly, looking for water in the desert. You are one of a kind and you have a unique spiritual fingerprint. A unique abundance DNA. The universe just wants you to recognize and own your uniqueness. Visualize the energy dimension to every situation…every challenge…every opportunity…every new relationship.
Mastering energy will give you the equivalent of X-Ray vision. For instance, next time you have an important decision to make, build a picture of the situation in your mind. Now remove the specific details of that picture and replace them with energy. What is the energy telling you to do? However, you can think of money in a similar way.
There are millions of dollars floating around you right now. Whether that money is physically in a bank or energetically being swished around the internet. But when you start to shine at your brightest as an energetic being, when you start to become an Attraction Catalyst and add genuine value to the world and to others, you become a magnet for financial breakthroughs and all kinds of abundance.
They have more time on their hands. Less crowds and city bustle. Getting your powerful affirmations and self-suggestions to feel this natural can take a little time. When you buy some new clothes, they may be very appealing. You might need to just put them on, internalize them, then walk around with them for a few days. This morning I got up to write at 5am. It also allows me to meditate and affirm my way into the new day, long before the kids come screaming down the staircase, breaking my peace. I often forget to do it, but somehow my mind, body and spirit know to awake.
Another one is your belief thermostat. If you believe you can, you can…as they say. Find out where it is right now, then gradually move it upwards like an athlete gaining muscle strength. Keep growing the dollar amount, until your belief thermostat kicks in and you feel the belief overriding your doubt. Your inner thermostat will kick in and let you know. This is genuine subconscious growth.
This is abundance actually happening. Just like when you see a tree sapling first appear above the earth.
The secret of “Going First” with energy…
There is a special place inside of you which connects you to the majesty and limitless potential of the universe. Understand this and acknowledge it. Acknowledging and owning your source code for abundance…your energy DNA is the moment an exciting shift happens for you. The connection you then create will deliver you a great prize. Health, happiness, purpose and financial abundance.
