It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. If you are reading this book, then you are obviously ready to take the next step in your own personal evolution. You are ready to begin deliberately creating and receiving more of what you really want in your life. By consciously and intentionally working with the Law of Attraction, you can create exactly what you want with less effort and more joy.
While many people now refer to the Law of Attraction as a “secret,” it is neither a new concept nor a recent discovery. It has been an integral part of the great teachings of the ages for several millennia. I have been teaching this principle along with many others for over twenty years. With the release of the DVD movie “The Secret” and appearances by many of the teachers (myself included) that were featured in the movie on Oprah, Larry King Live, The Today Show, Montel, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Nightline, the awareness of the Law of Attraction has now become part of the mainstream culture.
Finally, we are learning that we are all participants in the creation of our lives, and that we are all responsible for the state of the world we live in. We are beginning to realize that if we want things to change on an external level, then we must be willing to make the necessary internal changes as well. There is a shift taking place, a change in our awareness. This change is in the air and on the airwaves, and we can feel it deep within our souls. There seems to be a common yearning among us to return to a simpler, more joyous place and time, and we know on some internal level that there is more to life than what we have been experiencing. We know that greater fulfillment is possible and we are ready for it. We have reached a point where we have come full circle in our spiritual evolution and we are longing to understand our connection to each other, our purpose and ourselves. We are, as a people looking within, questioning our priorities, our circumstances, and searching for deeper meaning in our lives.
It is my hope that through this book and through a better understanding of how the Law of Attraction is at work in your life, you will also gain a greater understanding of yourself — a sense of who you really are, and why you are here. This simple guide is your key. It can unlock the gate to the future you desire and lead you down a path of greater joy, prosperity and abundance. It is my intention that as you read this book you will find yourself inspired by the realization that you can create the life you desire, and that you will be empowered by the use of the basic tools, strategies and concepts contained within these pages.
This book is in your hands for a reason. You can begin to live a truly conscious life—one that is filled with purpose and meaning—right now. Starting today you can begin to reconnect with your inner truth and wisdom. You can learn to trust your intuition, heighten your awareness and honor your emotions. By simply trusting in the natural order of things, and by trusting in a higher power than yourself, you can learn to let go and begin living in a place of real faith, gratitude and joy. As you make these changes, you will start to become increasingly aware of the miracles all around you; and the events in your life will begin to unfold in what seems like magical and mysterious ways.
Remember, you are inextricably connected to everyone and everything in the universe, including God. You always have been. At any given moment the universe is automatically responding to your every thought, feeling and action. It has no choice; it’s simply the way things work. It acts as a mirror, reflecting back to you the very energy you project. The thoughts and energy that you send out into the universe will always attract back to you, in one form or another, things and experiences that match those thoughts and energy. This is the Law of Attraction at work in your life. It is a perfect example of this brilliantly designed universe in action, an immutable universal law. The Law of Attraction is the scientific explanation for coincidence, serendipity, and the power of prayer.
Knowing this, if you want to find greater happiness and fulfillment in your life, you must begin to live in harmony with the natural rhythm of the universe, and in harmony with the Law of Attraction. You must choose to live in a place of gratitude, greater peace and higher consciousness. You must follow your bliss, do what you love and make time to find joy in your life. It is your natural birthright to be happy, and it is your obligation to express yourself through your natural gifts and talents in a way that brings you joy. By doing so, you are also making an essential contribution to the world we live in.
Imagine a world where we are all living in this way. A world where we all take full responsibility for our thoughts, our actions and the results they produce, and become more loving, giving, compassionate and appreciative people. Through the Law of Attraction the natural result of all of these things is a state of ever increasing joy and abundance. As we become happier, more grateful individuals, we create a vibrational match for all the good that the universe has to offer, and we begin to shift the energy of the entire planet.
