Once again, I have proven my incredible power to attract an awesome guest post. Fred, from Personal Development with Fred Tracy, has delivered pure gold. Enjoy y’all!
We’ve all heard of the Law of Attraction and how it works from our queen bee Melody here. Most of us have probably tried it once or twice with something small, like manifesting some extra spending money or getting our loved ones to stop being such jerks. Some of us may even live by the darn thing, manifesting masterpieces left and right.
But how many of us really create every aspect of our reality with it? Okay, so that’s a trick question. As Melody says, we create 100% of our realities whether we want to admit to that fact or not. But how many of us recognize this principle and take our innate creating power into our own hands? And how many of us realize the full extent of what we can do with that power?
What I’m talking about here is not simply influencing reality in our favor. I’m talking about hacking into the friggin’ matrix, man. This is about ripping our current “okay” lives to shreds and gluing the pieces back together with our mind. If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will.
So What Does “Making Magic “Mean?
It means whatever you want it to mean. Haha, no but really, it does. It’s a cliché answer, but it’s absolutely true. Most of us are probably used to manifesting regular stuff, but how many of us have really pushed the envelope? What qualifies as magical to you depends on your experience with intention manifestation, but the point is that if these principles really work, then there’s no reason you can’t turn the amp up to 11 and rock out all over the place.
If you can manifest some pocket change on the ground, you can rearrange your entire reality.
And that’s what I’m talking about here. I’m talking about using the law of attraction to create palaces in the sky (or whatever floats your boat) and bring that into fruition in the real world.
I like to call it building cloud bridges.
How to Build a Cloud Bridge
Imagine the following scene with me. Suppose you see a picture hanging on the wall. It’s not doing anything fancy other than the usual picture stuff – that is, it’s hanging there. Got it? Good.
This picture represents an image of something you want to change right now. On the left side of the picture is a mountain containing your current situation. On the right side of your picture is another mountain containing your desired outcome. Easy enough so far – but don’t fall asleep yet. Here comes the tricky part.
The middle is a bridge that represents how you’re gonna go from the left side of the picture (your current situation) to the right side (your desired situation). If you don’t have a clue how that’s going to manifest, then there isn’t going to be anything in the middle of the picture. But don’t fret. That’s actually where we want to be. That means we can create our bridge from scratch the good old fashioned way – with imagery.
Let me give you a little example of this visualization. I like to imagine that my mountains are so tall that the bridge has to go through the clouds, hence a cloud bridge. The middle area is nothing but a bunch of empty space set against a clear blue sky. On each cliff rests the remnants of an old bridge that broke apart long ago. I, the wayward wanderer, am stuck in my current reality on the left side of the bridge, and I’m wondering how the hell I’m going to get over to the right side. Oh, and a big storm set in and starting to rain, so I REALLY need to get to the other side. It’s warm there, and they have a nice warm blanket for me and everything. It’s up to me to imagine a way to get from point A to point B. If I don’t make it, or if I do something stupid like slip and fall to my doom, it’s all my fault. So I better get to work!
Now that you’ve got the basic idea down, the rest should come pretty easy. Each plank or section of the bridge is simply a mini-goal you have on the way to manifesting your new reality. It’s classic LOA stuff folks. Plus bridges, mainly because I like bridges.
To help solidify this idea, I’ll share my own personal bridge with you.
My Blogging Cloud Bridge
My picture represents my blogging journey. The left side contains an empty blog with zero traffic – pretty much exactly what I had when I first started. The right side contains a well-trafficked blog that fuels a life full of continued growth, great relationships, cool experiences, and financial freedom.
Now, the fact that I’ve decided exactly what I want from my blog helps me immensely in creating that reality. Many people don’t even get as far as defining their goals. But visualizing and focusing on each aspect in between adds significant power (and customization) to the process.
My particular bridge involves a lot of planks of wood put together. For example, one aspect of the reality I’m ringing from my mind into real-world fruition is community involvement at my blog. I regularly sit down and intend to have awesome commenters and engaging discussion flowing as freely as egg-smelling water does from our hot water tap (we really should get that fixed). And just like magic, people like Melody and many other fine folks have been kind enough to grace my blog with their presence and conversation. I’ve literally doubled my comments on one of my posts. While I’d like to think that it’s all due to my awesome writing, a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was pouring energy into that particular outcome, or section of my bridge.
Another piece of my bridge involves generating income. Oddly enough, I haven’t been focusing as much on this one as I used to. But in the early days, this is something I focused on all the time. Now, there’s no way to prove this for sure, but my stats back then were up to almost what I have now even though I had half the traffic. I’m talking about real data here, like Adsense CTR and donations. Which reminds me, I need to focus on this one a little more.
This doesn’t mean that your cloud bridge has to be about blogging. You can intend for anything your little heart desires. The point is that you have to specifically define your goals, determine how you’re going to get them, and then pour as much happy juice into them as you can (no, the other kind of happy juice).
Chaining Together Your Intentions
What you’re doing here really is magic. You’re literally creating a new world for yourself with your mind and focusing on it enough to bring it into the real world.
Notice that all of my visualizations are aimed at one goal: reaching my blogging dreams… It’s as though I’m literally creating a dream world that is continually being reinforced with more and more energy. As this energy flows towards this dream, small things like I mentioned (pieces of the bridge) keep happening (forming planks) that bring you one step farther to reaching your goals (the ideal mountain). Pretty cool, isn’t it?
You don’t have to be a passive participant in the law of attraction. As Melody says, whatever you focus on is what you will get. This law applies to everything. Who says you have to focus on boring things? Why not create a custom made, expertly tailored reality for yourself? All you have to do is think it up and hold that vibration. And one way you do that by creating your cloud bridge and visualizing each and every individual plank. Imagine them coming together in unison to form an unstoppable connection between where you are now and where you want to be.
This is one of the few cases where the sky really is the limit. The only thing holding you back is your imagination. Don’t let anyone ever tell you to get your head out of the clouds again.
