People are constantly asking me for the answer to the question “Do I need to take action or not when using Law of Attraction?”
Some teachers say not to take action, while others insist you must take action. Here’s how I see it.
The answer is… no and yes.
Let me explain. Your “Vibrational Request” sets the energy in motion for your desire using Law of Attraction, and in the manifestation process you will begin to attract things—people, contacts, resources, opportunities and ideas—in perhaps a day or two, or longer, that are in alignment to your desire. Maybe just a little at first, or maybe a lot, but things are happening.
When you take direct action right away, you’re stopping the flow of possibilities that the Law of Attraction may be sending to you. For example, you may have decided you’d like to attract more money and now you’re searching for a part-time job. In doing so, you are not allowing the Law of Attraction to present to you multiple other ways that you can attract more money besides a part-time job.
It’s like doing an Internet search and telling the Internet where to find the exact information you’re looking for. That’s not your job! Your job is to submit your request and let the Internet figure out where to find the webpage of the information you’re seeking.
So when your search yields 20 or 25 pages and hundreds of websites, your first job is to check out those pages and see how close your match is. The websites that are coming up in your search are a direct result of the search criteria you entered.
In both cases, you’ll know you’ve attracted your ideal match by how it feels.
Now, it’s time to take action!
For example, my friend Anna desired a new vehicle and she did her Clarity Through Contrast exercise to help her identify the ideal vehicle and purchase. She did this on a Saturday morning and was so stimulated, she decided that afternoon she would go window shopping for her ideal vehicle. Before heading out, she also did some research by looking through the Lemon Aid™ car guide, searching over Internet sites, and then drove from used car lot to lot searching for her ideal vehicle. End result? She came home frustrated and disappointed when she didn’t find it. I reminded her that she wasn’t using Law of Attraction at all in this process and that she was using her own shopping abilities to look for the vehicle instead.
Law of Attraction had just gotten her request 2 hours before and hadn’t had time to unfold and orchestrate results for her. We both laughed when I said “Even a professional auto finder wouldn’t have found it in 2 hours!” I reminded her that her job was to identify what she wanted, set the energy in motion and watch for matches coming to her. Despite my advice, Anna then hired an auto finder (for the sum of $649) to find her ideal vehicle, again not allowing Law of Attraction to do its job, and he failed to find a match for her.
Finally, totally disheartened, she said, “That’s enough!” and decided to let Law of Attraction do its job. She then sent out the vibes to the universe to find her the perfect car, at the perfect price from a person she could totally trust. When she arrived at work the next morning, she found a telephone number of a guy who sold used cars (which she’d totally forgotten she’d had), and gave him a call. Not only did he have exactly the car she desired, at the price she was willing to pay, he was also a Master Technician for a well known car dealership. She is now the proud owner of the exact perfect match (yes, a vehicle including sunroof, leather seats, CD player and all the criteria she’d asked for!) and a mechanic she trusts to service her new vehicle, all delivered courtesy of the Law of Attraction. After a brief phone call with him, she knew she’d found the ideal match… by how it felt. NOW it was time to take action.
In summary, identify what you desire, set the energy in motion, let Law of Attraction figure it out and know the time to take action is when it feels just right. Get out of your own way and let Law of Attraction do its work!
