The Law of Attraction's Forgotten Step


The Law of Attraction, at its simplest, states that like attracts like. Many writings on the Law of Attraction describe the process of  using this universal law as follows:

  • Decide what you want and ask for it
  • Affirm this desire in the present
  • Visualize yourself owning it now
  • Feel the positive feelings that this brings
  • Believe that you will receive it
  • Watch for and act on all inspiration received
  • Give gratitude
There is one step, however, which I believe is critical but is often omitted from the process. It is one that many people do not realize the importance of. This forgotten step is taking action.

What happens when we take positive action...

One of the steps in using the Law of Attraction is acting on the inspiration the universe provides. Unfortunately, for many, this step can be elusive, if it happens at all. It could easily slip by us if we aren't paying attention - when we let our focus wander to 'what is' instead of what could be. Or we might let negative thoughts undermine our belief, in which case inspiration would unlikely arrive at all. But this step is very important because it is how the Law of Attraction guides us.

Belief is also a key ingredient in the attraction process, and probably the hardest one to maintain. But there is a way to help keep our belief alive and strong, and ensure that inspiration follows. 

Write down your desire and create an action plan for achieving it. Then start following your plan. It doesn't need to be perfect. And it doesn't need to be inspired. All you need to do is work on it daily.

When you take daily positive action, your belief automatically increases. And this is exactly what you need to call the Law of Attraction into play.

There is an added benefit to taking positive action, and an important one. You see, for most of us, 'inspiration' usually arrives when we are actually 'doing' something. So by taking positive action (no matter how small the action may be) we increase our chances of receiving the 'Aha' moments that can lead us to inspired action.
Don’t waste time waiting for inspiration. Begin, and inspiration will find you.

H. Jackson Brown

Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.

Pablo Picasso

The Universal Force knows the best way and will guide you there, but if all you do is ask for what you want, and then go back to your usual routine, your chances of receiving inspiration will be greatly diminished. But, if you combine positive action with affirmations and visualization, your belief will automatically increase, until you finally believe, beyond doubt, that you are attracting your desires towards you. When this happens, inspiration, opportunities, and good fortune will magically start to appear in your life.

I can't think of a better way to show the universe that your belief is genuine, and that you are serious about wanting your desires, than taking positive action. This tangible commitment will translate into belief and expectancy. And this is exactly what the Law of Attraction needs to start working for you.

  • Ask
  • Affirm
  • Visualize
  • Emotionalize
  • Take positive action
  • Watch for guidance
  • Take 'inspired action'
  • Believe
  • And give thanks, knowing that the Law of Attraction always works when you do.
