How The Law Of Attraction Changed My Life

Today I want to talk about how the law of attraction changed my life. I know that’s a bold statement to make, but it genuinely changed every way I live my day-to-day life, in less than 12 months.

If you’ve read my previous posts you’ll know I’m partial to raving about The Secret, a book based on the law of attraction and working with the universe to attract positive things into your life. For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of manifestation, here’s a quick, and hopefully easy to understand, recap.

The idea is, we’re all made up of energy – humans, cats, chairs, cars. Everything is energy. So whatever energy you put out must come back. Positive energy attracts positive energy. Being negative attracts negative things. So how the law of attraction works is, you choose a goal you want to achieve – say, manifesting a new job – and you write this down. You ask the universe, or higher power whether that’s something you follow, and you visualise yourself reaching said goal.

Now whether that’s the universe or your subconscious mind opening to opportunities you’ve not seen before, but sooner or later you’ll start to notice signs that point you in the direction of reaching said goal.

The most important point is that you have to be specific, visualising reaching this goal on a daily basis and believing that it’s already yours. You feel the feelings and emotions of already having what you want. You feel the happiness you imagine you’d feel if your wish came true.

Of course, you take steps to make it happen – you can’t just sit in your armchair and wait for a million pounds to appear – but you don’t worry about the “how” it’s going to happen, the universe will take care of that bit.

However, there’s a big but here. For the law of attraction to really work to its best ability, you need to be grateful for what you already have in life. I wake up every single morning and think of three things I’m thankful for, whether that’s something small like being able to lie in, or having client work that means I can pay the bills. Once you start to live a grateful, positive way of life, you’ll start to notice your luck changing, if you like. You’ll start to open your eyes to more oppotunities, some of which were there before but you were in such a negative mindset you passed them by.

That’s a relatively short and simple way to explain what The Secret is about but for an in-depth explanation, I’d recommend listening to the audiobook like I did. I know it sounds whacky, and when I explain it to people who are cynical about stuff like this, it’s hard to get the idea across. Here’s how it changed my life…

It was in March of 2017 when I settled down to listen to The Secret for the second time. The first time I found it mind-boggling. I was totally overwhelmed by it – something which a few other people had mentioned to me previously – and felt like I wasn’t in the right head space to try and work it into my already-busy life.

The second time I listened though, something clicked. I got it. I felt excited about the possibilities, but I also wanted to put it to the test. The Secret advises to start small – think of something small like seeing a bright pink feather (this is what I did). I believed I’d see that feather. I wasn’t sure when, but I knew it wouldn’t be long until the universe sent me a sign it was working. That week I opened a parcel from work and in there was a gift, with a pink feather in the bag which must have come off something else. Coincidence? Maybe. But for me, that was enough to believe there might be some truth to manifestion.

I tested it for a second time. I asked for £125. A random number I know, but that’s what I asked the universe for and I spent the whole journey to work visioning that money going into my bank account. Later that day a brand emailed about a campaign, but their budget was £120. This was close, but it wasn’t what I was asking the universe for. It had to be that specific amount for me to truly believe something was working. An hour later the brand came back and said as they could only pay me via Paypal they’d increase it to £125 to include any fees I’d incur. That random figure had appeared in my life the very same day I had manifested it.

I then created a moodboard with five things. A car that I’d dreamt about owning for over two years but couldn’t afford. The words “run my own business” in big letters, £10k to pay off my debts. And finally, to win another blog award.

I would sit every morning whilst drying my hair and every night whilst rubbing my skincare lotions and potions in, really concentrating on my vision board. I also got into guided visualisation to help me drift to sleep which is amazing and I still do to this day.

I knew it was only a matter of time before things started to happen and happen they did. I would write drafts of Facebook posts announcing that I’d won a blog award, and I would imagine the car I was driving was, in fact, my dream car. I stopped stressing about money because I knew it was coming.

This was in July of 2017. Today is the 13th January 2019, I’ve won four blog awards in the last year. I now own my dream car and genuinely can’t believe that I do after receiving an email from a garage to say they had a black one for sale in my budget. And the biggest change? I was made redundant in March 2018, meaning I could run Apartment Number 4 full-time and my payout was over £10k.

The weird thing is, it’s quite poignant that I’m writing this post today because I can remember vividly two years ago exactly how rubbish I was feeling. I can remember exactly how I was feeling when I look at my Timehop and see the statuses and texts I was writing. Negative feelings were consuming my body and I couldn’t seem to shift them. And whether you think The Secret is a load of bull crap or not, the positivity that it brought into my life is undeniable.

What’s next? Well, I’m working on a manifesting a book deal, a house deposit and, wait for it…a husband. True story, don’t laugh. I have a moodboard with all the different qualities I want in a guy – humour, will watch Friends with me, loves me for me, likes chicken nuggets – the usual. And he’s just around the corner. Let’s hope he never finds out about the moodboard though hey, I’m not entirely sure how to explain that the universe sent him…

    Ohhh Victoria I LOVE this! I am a huge believer in positive attracts positive, I agree 100% I have read The Secret, but like you it blew my mind so you have inspired me to pick it up again. Iv never used it to manifest anything, but I do know that keeping a positive mind and positive energy serves me far better than letting the stress of this year overwhelm me. When I met you at the 30 plus awards, I think I said, your energy is so positive and so full of promise, I know that you will have that deal done and dusted soon. All the very best to you xxx

    Wether or not people believe in this method, it’s all about focusing on the positive and having a clear image of what you want to achieve. I’m very happy for your success.

    I know I’ll be able to read your book this year, it’s simply a matter of time!

    I absolutely adore this post and I have read the Secret a number of times! It is something that can be hard to implement though and I feel like I’m kind of in that point where i’m not feeling it, but I have to remind myself that the point is you must! I totally believe in it and it’s amazing to hear about all you have achieved! xx

    Oh I love it. I remember my mum had The Secret dvd (going back 10 years or so) and binned it. We thought it was a movie and felt so perplexed by it that mum gave up. I might have to find an online version and give that a go ? Really interesting, and I live that it gives you s vision / goal, and you’re totally right, even if it doesn’t happen it’s brought positivity!

    Wow. Just wow.

    This is the first post of yours that I’ve ever read. I just came across it on my twitter timeline and oh my word it was everything that I’ve needed to hear.

    I’ve tried this out myself once, I pictured myself in the job I wanted and told myself it was already mine and out of 20 people I got the job. It’s not a job I want to do anymore, but it’s helped me realise that I don’t want to work with animals but I really want to get an editing job.

    Can’t wait to read more posts of yours. 🙂

    I LOVE this!! I’m just starting to try out manifestation myself, although I’m really not a woo-woo person at all?? I read Magic Money by Holly Alexander and I’m practising manifestation daily. It’s really changed my whole attitude. Thanks for this post, it was very timely for me and now I’m off to find the book you recommended. Hmm.. I’m now wondering if the universe sent you…

    This is fabulous. Both in what you have achieved over the last year, but also of something so, I hate to say, simple.
    We/the world needs more positivity. More belief in ourselves that we’re worthy.
    I’ve had this book saved in my wish list on Amazon for some time, but I am totally inspired by your story, that I’m purchasing as I write.
    You completely deserve all the awards you’ve won this year and so many more.
    Watch out 2018!

    Oh my goodness I completely get this. Literally that moment when you read a blog post and relate so much that it doesn’t even feel like you’re talking to a friend, but like you’re talking to yourself. In August 2016 I was diagnosed with an incurable cancer, and all through my treatment I was so focused on recovery that I would chant NED (no evidence of disease) in my head frequently. Well, in January 2017 the doctors told me that my body is clear of cancer, something they didn’t believe would happen. I guess I kind of do this in more aspects of my life but less consciously…this post has inspired me to pay more attention to manifestation. I really want to read this book!
