The Secret Behind Getting What You Want

"I want it, and I want it NOW!"

If only that was how it worked.

The truth is, we don’t get what we want. We get what we are. 

Say what? What does that mean? 

You’ve heard about this Law of Attraction stuff and you thought all you had to do was want stuff. Like, it is some magical power and “poof!” all your wants are delivered to you. 

Yeah, sorry, it doesn’t work that way. If it did, you would already have everything you've always wanted.

Let’s pretend for a minute. You want a bag full of money and you want it filled with hundreds of dollar bills. Nope, wait a minute! You want it filled with zillion dollar bills. (I mean, let’s go hog wild since we’re pretending after all.)

So now that you have this big delicious bag of money, how are you feeling about it? Happy? Cool. But what does happy mean to you? What does that feel like? Why do you think that big ole bag of money makes you feel happy? What is it representing something to you? The bag of money by itself is just a bag of money, so it has to represent something to you. 

I’m guessing it represents the feeling (vibration) of relief and freedom.

In order for the Universe to bring that to you, you must vibrate what relief and freedom feel like. So how do you do that? Imagine being able to buy anything you want and you never have to look at the price tag. Imagine the feeling of being able to go anywhere and taking anyone with you because the cost is not a problem. Imagine having the freedom of doing what you want, whether it’s staying home with your kids and buying a pony. 

Are you feeling that? Say hello to relief and freedom.

It’s the vibration of what you want that brings it to you, not the want itself. 

When you align with the feeling of what you want and allow it to come to you (receiving), it has no choice but to come to you.

Here’s the catch…the secret, if you will. 

When something shows up and it feels like relief or freedom, acknowledge it. Even if it wasn’t exactly what you thought it would be, acknowledge it. 

If you poop on it you just sent out a vibration of, “What the hell universe?! That’s not a bag full of money.” 

Rule number one: don’t poop on your manifestations! 

For example, let’s say relief and freedom showed up this way: You got a discount on something when you didn’t expect it, or you were told you have the afternoon off with pay. This is your manifestation! Relief and freedom have arrived.

Just because it didn’t show up in the way you thought it would doesn’t mean it’s not working. Give gratitude, keep practicing and look for what is working and celebrate that.  

This can be done for anything you want: a partner, weight loss, your dream job, financial freedom…it works for everything and for everyone, every time.  

What does ‘what you want’ represent? (I’m talking about feelings here). Put it out to the universe and graciously accept what shows up. Write down the proof (this will give you more of it). 

Keep practicing, tweak it and repeat.
