Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. ——Matthew 6:33
It is the act of seeking that brings us success (and ultimately salvation). Look through the perspective of any religious view. Through studies of sacred texts, pilgrimages, meditations and other rites, a quest for understanding is a quest for God. This goal relates directly to the five steps we’ve discussed in previous posts: Intention, Affirmation, Visualization, Awareness and Action.
The Law of Attraction says what we focus on, we attract. So, in the big picture, if our ultimate desires (our Intentions) are linked to our faith and God, then you will receive the blessings you seek. This might require you to take a step back and look at your intentions in the big picture. And that’s okay, because your intention to gain more clients or grow your business will only take you so far. Where will the fulfillment of those goals take you next?
Then look at your affirmations and visualizations as a form of faith. With an affirmation, visual or otherwise, you are projecting a positive end-result into your own future. You don’t “know” this to be true in your rational mind, but tapping into the unconscious you can believe it to be true. Seeking the positive will attract the positive. Plus, your awareness or mindfulness of this positive attitude will keep you on track.
Luke Skywalker: I can’t believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.
That brings us back around to Action. It is a difficult task to come up with good intentions for your life, believe in them, believe in yourself and stay positive. (Nobody said it would be easy!) It’s harder still to take the steps that lead us in the right direction. Call it Karma, call it God’s blessing… call it the power of the Law of Attraction. But again, each step with positive intention will be rewarded.
