What an awesome weekend.  You know the thing is that there are life lessons all around you if you look for them.  Of course, we mostly find them with the benefit of hindsight but that's okay.  At least we are able to find them.  There really is no timetable because time is just an illusion.

Anyway, I was talking to a couple of people over the weekend, and if you've read more than a couple of my posts here in my little world, then you know and understand that a lot of what I do is Law of Attraction.  You know that I'm a huge fan of Dr Robert Anthony, one of the world's leaders and best teachers of the subject, plus many other teachers of the concept.  One of my favourite books on the Law of Attraction is Ask and it is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

Plus I've heard the phrase quite a lot over the years.  Ask, and the Universe will provide you with an answer.  And my revelation was that was where so many people come unstuck and then say that the Law of Attraction doesn't work.  And they're right.  And they're wrong.

The reason it's not working, or that it is working and people are getting what they don't want, is because so much of the teaching about the Law of Attraction is just so wimpy.  The problem is that people are asking the universe for what they want.  The problem is that asking means there is usually uncertainty there.  The problem is that people are asking in uncertainty and the universe is providing the answer and the answer is "No".  The problem is that when people ask for something then there is always the implication that there's at least a 50/50 chance that the answer will be "No".

This is in no way a criticism of any Law of Attraction teachers.  I've just come to the conclusion that a fundamental flaw in the way we teach the concept is being perpetuated because most of us just don't know any better.

One of the things I've learned from my recent foray into the world of NLP is that as practitioners we need to look at our mind like it's a ship.  And the one thing I do know about a ship, is that someone, not a committee, but one person, has to be in command.  So you need to be the captain of your ship.  One captain means not just being in command, but it means that it should be easier to focus on what you want.

And this is all part of the point.  It's all part of living consciously.  When you live consciously, you live deliberately instead of living by default, and when you live deliberately, you set your focus on what you want instead of what you don't want.  When you set your focus on what it is that you do want, you start to match your frequency to that outcome and sooner or later you bring it into your life.

Being clear and concise with what one wants is the way it comes into being. Enjoyed the article.
