I had some challenges re-writing this article to comply with the article submission guidelines, only to realize what a great opportunity it is to moonlight this circumstances (being rejected) to elaborate my point in real time (and hopefully comply as well).
Before going any further, I am going to quote T Harv Eker, Don’t Believe A Word I Say.
Harv has the reputation of saying that disclaimer prior to starting any book, events or courses. Why?
Because he is only coming from his experience. With regards to the practical application of the Law of Attraction, anything I say is coming from my own experience. It is what I found out and experienced after consciously apply the principles of the Law of Attraction in my own life.
The Definite Attractor and The Law of Attraction
The concept of being the definite attractor is about understanding and realizing what your ‘internal attractor’ setting is. Because most of us apply the Law of Attraction by default, and we attract the things, people and circumstances automatically, in the wrong direction. No, we don’t attract by random. We attract randomness. Randomness is actually something definite that we attract, by lacking a key element in manifestation – Definiteness.
Read that paragraph again. It took me awhile to get it too at first.
I am going to quote Dr. Joe Vitale from the hit movie ‘The Secret’ discussing the Law of Attraction”
Everything that surrounds you right now in your life, including the things you’re complaining about, you’ve attracted it. Now I know at first blush, that’s gonna be something that you hate to hear. You’re gonna immediately say,
“I didn’t attract the car accident.”
“I didn’t attract this particular client.”
“I didn’t particularly attract the debt.”
“I didn’t attract, whatever it is you’re complaining about.”
And I’m here to be a little bit in your face and say, yes, you did attract.”
Everything is about what you are ‘BEING’. Do you by default attract crappy scenarios in your life, or miracles and excitement? One easy way to find out, is to recall and observe one event/circumstances you felt wasn’t favorable to you.
The Story of Article Submission(s)
One event that recently took place/manifested in my life, is the online submission of this article.
Now I’m gonna be honest, article submission is something I do once every blue moon, and in between the moons, rules and regulations change. I mean, at first I thought it was gonna be a simple cut and paste operation about something I’ve written before on the Law of Attraction.
Instead, this is what happened.
Attempt #1: Turned down due to three issues
Linking, self-promotion and content. In short, it’s deemed a problem article. So I removed the hyperlinks, and I thought there, problem solved.
Attempt #2: (Same) three issues (again)
So as the second rejection note arrived, it hit me about the whole Definite Attractor concept. I mean, if you are like me, then you too subscribe to the principle that ‘I am responsible for every result that happens in my life’.
The rejections were results. Everything that happens in our lives after we’ve declared our intention to attract them using the Law of Attraction brings with them smaller results, that in time will lead to the big one we’ve been wanting. So, why not adjust accordingly and reap the positive results that you want? (If you’re reading this online, then I have successfully adjusted my actions to get what I wanted to attract; get this published!)
Often times, people let any unfavorable circumstances that appear to be the permanent roadblock to whatever they are attempting into their lives. Instead, why not learn how to use the Law of Attraction to change your ‘default attraction’ setting?
Learn how to attract favorable situations, circumstances, events and people rather than playing the victim and blaming everything/everyone else and not taking responsibility on what you’ve manifested into your life.
By consistently practicing the Law of Attraction in the right way, you attract more and more favorable results and outcomes you desire because you have learned what not to do. (The Law of Attraction after all is around us, and never stopped working.) Just because you are not getting the results you desire or you think you wanted, doesn’t mean that the Law of Attraction have stopped working for you.
Four Key Elements in the Application of the Law of Attraction.
There are four key elements to successfully applying the Law of Attraction in your daily life. And I would like to clarify that these are elements, NOT the steps for manifestation.
An element is something that must exist in every step of the process of manifestation. The steps would be introduced later. Here are the four elements that must exist when you are consciously applying the Law of Attraction to manifest what you want:
1.) Definiteness – Clearly stating what you want, and separating yourself from what you do not want.
2.) Vividness of vision – The right way to visualize your desire. Everyone can imagine, not everyone can visualize.
3.) Detachment – Ironically a missing key component of manifesting with the Law of Attraction.
4.) Act – Misconception by the masses. Action is actually required on your part.
If you are not where you want to be, re-examine your life using the four elements mentioned above. Ask yourself questions using these elements as guidance to your personal realization of your current ‘internal attraction’ setting.
For example: I am not getting as much money as I want
Followed by these questions.
1.) Am I being definite about what I want? – how much money? by when?
2.) Is my vision vivid or blurry at best? – am I thinking about the money or am I visualizing how great my life would be?
3.) Am I detached to the outcome? – do I live in worry and the feeling that I am desperate for this amount of money?
4.) Am I taking actions? – what kind of actions am I taking to get myself closer to this goal? Is it logical action? Is it inspired action?
Stay tuned for my next piece on the subject matter, as I explain further on the steps.
