Confused About How To Attract Great Things To Your Life?
There are hundreds of articles available on the subject of the law of attraction, so to most reading this article, it is no surprise that the universe responds to our thoughts and vibrations.
I wasn’t always aware of the law of attraction, which simply stated says our thoughts create our reality! I’ve studied the law of attraction now for some time and I’ve learned that it takes less than 30 seconds for the universe to line up vibrationally to whatever we are focusing on in the moment! That means we may be attracting a lot of what we don’t want if we don’t monitor our thoughts!
For instance, when things don‘t manifest as quickly as I think they should, I consciously listen to the chatter in my head and then refocus my thoughts!
Lately, I’ve become very aware that I have been spinning my energetic wheels. I’ve had a mirage of thoughts going through my head, all of them conflicting with one another.
How in the world is the universe supposed to respond to my wants when I can’t figure out what I want? I thought I knew, but when I pay close attention to the dialogue in my head, it’s obvious I have no clue.
I’ve been visualizing my goals and dreams and as soon as I visualize a creative way to live my dreams, I immediately come up with half a dozen reasons why it won’t or can’t work.
I have shifted gears more times than I can say and mentally skipped down another path time and again and still come up with more reasons why my ideas won’t work!
So, I have convinced myself to play it safe and not entertain any of my “risky” ideas. Staying in my current J-O-B seems the safest road for sure! I feel safe in it because it is what I know well and it is what everyone else wants and expects me to do!
But in my heart, I know playing it safe in my J-O-B is selling me short in life! It’s NOT a true representation of who I am. It’s not my passion, it’s not what drives me and it’s not what makes my feet hit the floor in the morning and spring to life – it gives me no purpose other than trading time for money.
When I consider these feelings, my mind immediately shifts to immense guilt about flirting with any ideas about switching careers. I should be satisfied with my current employment situation. It pays well and it’s a job after all. A job that so many people would be grateful to have and are searching for each day!
So why don’t I appreciate it?
I DO appreciate it and I have always felt gratitude towards my current situation.
Yet, those nagging thoughts creep into my consciousness, “it‘s not making a difference in other people’s lives, it’s not filling me up spiritually and it’s making me unhappy!” Knowing that I’m playing it safe is tearing me apart!
Maybe I’m not valuing myself in the way I need to for the Universe to deliver what I need to fill my soul. I have never accepted compliments well, so why should the universe give me something I have longed for if I don’t think I am worthy of such gifts?
Hmmmmm, realizing that was an ah-ha moment for me!
I decided to give myself and my future a gift by taking the time to sit down and build a list of my “don’t wants” and rewrite them into a list of “do wants”.
I flowed as many feel good thoughts as possible to my “wants.” I closed my eyes and day dreamed about what it would be like to make a living, LOVING what I was doing! I started to smile as I saw myself waking up to my inner alarm clock, jumping out of bed excited to start my day – to create, to inspire, to motivate…..I had come alive inside! My heart felt like it was going to burst with pride as I planned my day, eager to jump into my projects with unbridled enthusiasm! Life was good and I was feeling very blessed.
I decided to celebrate any movement in the right directions no matter how big or small it seemed to be from that moment forward; to accept all compliments, to listen to my intuition, to look for synchronicity and most importantly, to stay in the feeling place of my “wants” every day.
I know the law of attraction works and I will “see it” when “I believe it!”
If you are struggling with your goals regarding your future, here’s a tapping script that may help you clear the mental chatter and refocus on what makes your heart smile. Remember to change the words to fit your personal situation so it resonates with you!

Look at the diagram and explanation of the tapping points.
I have also included the areas of the body that are directly affected by tapping these acupressure points.
Locating the Tapping Points
The Sore Spot (Tender Spot):
You can use the sore spot OR the Karate chop point – I choose the Karate chop point just because it is easier and more convenient. Either one will work fine, it is your preference.
If you choose to use the sore spot, this area is located in the upper left or right portions of the chest.
Go to the base of the throat about where a man would knot his tie. Poke around in this area and you will find a U shaped notch at the top of your sternum (breastbone).
From the top of that notch go down 3 inches toward your navel and over 3 inches to your left (or right).
You should now be in the upper left (or right) portion of your chest.
If you press vigorously in that area (within a 2 inch radius) you will find a “Sore Spot.” This is the place you will need to rub while saying the affirmation.
This spot is sore when you rub it vigorously because lymphatic congestion occurs there.
It is located in the middle of the fleshy part on the outside of the hand between the top of the wrist bone and the base of the baby finger. This point is associated with the small intestine meridian.
Tapping here helps relieve the feeling of being stuck or frozen. It helps you to move forward, to let go of the old.
At the beginning of the eyebrow, just above and to one side of the nose and is abbreviated “EB” in the tapping script.
This point is associated with the bladder meridian.
Tapping here helps release traumas, hurt and sadness. It can bring a sense of inner peace.
Side of the Eye:
On the bone bordering the outside corner of the eye and is abbreviated “SE” in the tapping script.
This point is associated with the gall bladder meridian. Tapping here helps release anger, resentment and fear of change. It helps with clarity, compassion and understanding.
Under the Eye:
On the bone under an eye about 1 inch below your pupil and is abbreviated “UE” in the tapping script.
This point is associated with the stomach meridian
Tapping here helps release fear, anxiety, worry, nervousness and disappointment. It helps instill calmness and feeling safe.
Under the Nose:
On the small area between the bottom of your nose and the top of your upper lip and is abbreviated “UN” in the tapping script. This point is the governing meridian.
Tapping here helps release shame, guilt, grief, fear of failure. It may help instill self empowerment and self acceptance.
Midway between the point of your chin and the bottom of your lower lip and is abbreviated “CH” in the tapping script. This point is the central meridian.
Tapping here helps release confusion, uncertainty and second guessing decisions. It may help instill self confidence and clarity.
This is the junction where the sternum (breastbone), collarbone and the first rib meet. To locate it, first place your forefinger on the U-shaped notch at the top of the breastbone (about where a man would knot his tie). From the bottom of the U, move your forefinger down toward the navel 1 inch and then go to the left (or right) 1 inch. I make a loose fist with either hand and gently tap this area.
This point is abbreviated “CB” in the tapping script.
This point is associated with the kidney meridian. Tapping here helps release general stress, worry, indecision. It may ease movement forward.
Under the Arm:
On the side of the body, it is about 4 inches below the armpit and is abbreviated “UA” in the tapping script. This point is associated with the spleen meridian.
Tapping here helps release guilt, obsessing, worry hopelessness. It may instill relaxation, and compassion for self and others.
Top of Head:
Tap in a small circular motion on the top of the head. This point is abbreviated “HD” in the tapping script.
This point is associated with the “hundred meeting points” meridian.
Tapping here helps release the inner critic, lack of focus and gerbil wheel thinking. It may instill insight, spiritual connection, focus and wisdom.
Located below the hand on the underside of your arm. The point where a woman would dab her perfume – tap both wrists together. This point is abbreviated “WR” in the tapping script. This point is associated with the heart, pericardium and lungs.
Tapping here helps release sadness, heartache, stress, anxiety and grief.
Wishing you a life full of dreams and the thoughts to make them spring to life.
