You must let go…

The most important thing and also the hardest part of The Law of Attraction, is the part where it tells you to let go. I know it may sound confusing, so let me explain. The basic way that you are supposed to attract something, is first to think about what you really want. It has to be specific. It cannot be “I want to travel the world” It has to be more specific than that. That would be like going into a restaurant and saying that you want some food. So just like placing a detailed order of food, you are supposed to place an order of your true desire to the universe. ( BTW, in my world, god is the universe, and the universe is god.)

Once you have determined what it is that you truly want, then you can place your order. There are different ways of placing your order with the universe. Some recommend that you write a letter to the universe explaining exactly what you want.
Some say that a prayer is a form of ordering, some have used the iPad app. Yes there is an app for that. And while I have tried all of these methods, the one that I feel I connect with the most is talking to the universe through meditation.

While I am in a meditative state, I tell the universe exactly what I want as if I already have it. And I say it with gratitude. For example: “I feel so grateful that I was able to afford that wonderful trip to France. It was so exciting to visit the the first stop on my tour of the world. Thank you universe for bringing that experience to me.”

To many, that is called Cosmic Ordering. And when I do this through meditation, it is when I feel most closest to source. But it can be anything that you want. If you want more money, place an order to the universe for an exact amount, just try not to put it way out of reach.

Once you have placed your order, it is on its way. At this time you should visualize that you already have it. Imagine that you are on the plane to your first destination.
Imagine what your destination looks like and how it makes you feel. Visualize yourself ordering a pastry from a French bakery. Yes make your imagination that specific. But now you have to let go. And what that means is, to not keep dwelling on the fact that it has not yet arrived. Try not to worry about the HOW it is going to come, just know that it is. And start concentrating on your present life in the meantime. Say to yourself “I have placed my order and now I am going to concentrate on other things. I am not going to worry, I am just going to let it go and let the universe work on it for me.”

It’s like when you try to find something in your house and you get frustrated because you have been looking for hours and you still cannot find it, but then you just give up and start doing something else, and then two days later, that thing you were looking for just shows up. It happens to me all the time.

So letting go after placing your cosmic order is the hardest part of this process, but it is the most important. And I think it’s because when you let it go, you are no longer in a place of wanting, which is also a feeling of despair of not having it. So when you let go, you go into a state of allowing, and that is where you want to be.

That is when the magic truly happens. So to summarize –

Know what you want
Place your Cosmic Order
Let go
Enter the feeling of allowing

Then prepare to receive the blessings and remember to be grateful for all of the wonderful things that you already have.

Next, I will be talking about Gratitude and all the wonderful ways we can begin to appreciate. And how it can help to bring even more to be grateful for.
