I love my Law of Attraction practice.

I love the shifts in my perception. I love finding alignment and re-finding it when I pop out. I love understanding an LoA concept in a new way, a deeper way that then leads to actually applying it in my real life—living it.

Quite simply: I love the deepening of my LoA practice.

And, it might surprise you to hear me say I also love when I notice that I’m dialed back into a pre-LoA version of myself, an old vibrational pattern or habit.

Now why would I love this?

Well, because I’m not into perfection these days. I don’t “do” Law of Attraction perfectly. And that is absolutely OK with me.

I appreciate noticing a step back into an old version of myself because it lets me know how truly far I’ve come. And…it’s certainly a chance—a golden opportunity—to practice Law of Attraction.

I sometimes feel like I’m playing a game. And it’s game I can’t lose.

The object of the game is simply to have fun, to enjoy playing. And so it doesn’t matter two steps forward, one step back. As long as I’m having fun along the way. As long as I’m finding joy along the journey.

I am light about my LoA practice even as Law of Attraction is absolutely front and center in my life, in my every day lived life.

I’m light about it. I don’t take myself to task with my LoA practice. I don’t beat myself up when I’m out of alignment.

I’ve truly embodied Gabby Bernstein’s advice to forgive myself fast.

And then re-find the alignment, lightly, with ease, with curiosity about what has unfolded, with an eager willingness to learn the lessons, connect the dots, deepen my LoA practice.

And so when I realize that I’m dialed back into an old energy, a pre-LoA version of myself with those old vibrational patterns or habits, I really do smile and say, Oh goody. What’s going on here? What’s that you’re doing with your vibration, Jennifer? Hmmm… Oh, remember when you used to do that all the time because you didn’t know? Well, now you know. Isn’t that wonderful? So now you know…and what now?

Let me share an example of dialing back into an old vibrational pattern.

I’ve said before on this podcast the pre-LoA version of me was what I call a “reliable narrator.” If you asked me about my day, I was would give you a full run-down. I would give you the facts. The good, the bad, the ugly.

Back then I thought telling the “whole” story” was a good thing. I shouldn’t just tell you what went right about my day, I should also share what went wrong. I should tell you everything, include all of it.

If I went to a new restaurant, I would be a reliable narrator and tell you all the things I liked and I would tell you all the things I didn’t like. I’d give it to you straight. Tell you the facts.

I simply wasn’t discerning about what I focused on, what I thought about, what I talked about. I was going to give you what I thought was an accurate accounting, the whole story, the pros and cons, the facts, the full picture.

Since my rediscovery of Law of Attraction and my obsession with all things LoA, this is an area of my life—a way of being—that has radically changed for me.

Thoroughly changed, fundamentally changed. Totally changed.

Because back then my being a reliable narrator meant my vibration was all over the place. The vibration I offered to which Law of Attraction responded was incredibly mixed.

This meant I was certainly not a deliberate creator. I couldn’t be. I couldn’t be because I was offering a vibration that reflected my total lack of discernment, my utter willingness to focus on all of it.

Somewhere early in my LoA journey I came across this wisdom from Abraham and it was a light bulb moment.

“Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before your eyes, but it is not by magic. It is by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate alignment with those Laws.” —Abraham

This concept was so eye-opening for me when I first encountered it—and it continues to be to this day.

Because I can find myself at times slipping back into factual documentary mode—what I call my reliable narrator.

My reliable narrator doesn’t choose a focus with intention. Instead, my reliable narrator includes it all.

The focus is on wanted and unwanted, what I like and dislike, what I appreciate and what I don’t appreciate. And my reliable narrator loves a very long list of pros and cons, as if to say, Let’s look at this situation and call it a problem and then let’s make a lengthy list of pros and cons. What a way to offer an all-over-the-place vibration!

Bottom line: An all-over-the-place vibration simply does not allow you to be a deliberate creator.

Early in my LoA journey, I realized I needed—wanted—a different way of focusing.

I wanted to start telling a better-feeling story. I wanted to only tell a good-feeling story.

I waved a gentle goodbye to my reliable narrator and made the decision—a very high vibe decision full of positive expectation—that I would no longer tell my story, no longer approach life, like it is a factual documentary.

I very much wanted to align with the uplifting, fanciful, magical story. Because not only would that story be so fun to tell, to think about, to talk about—it would also attract conditions and circumstances of a similar frequency.
Saying goodbye to my reliable narrator allowed me to improve my point of attraction.

These days, when my reliable narrator shows up, knocking at the door, wanting in, I recognize it is an invitation to focus. To embrace this mantra: “Today, no matter where I go, no matter what I am doing, and no matter who I am doing it with—it is my dominant intent to look for what I am wanting to see.” —Abraham

I can be a reliable narrator or I can look for what I want to see.

Both these ways of showing up come with a vibration. Only the latter one—the intentional focuser one, the selective sifter one, the tell-a-better-feeling-story one—only that one offers a vibration that will yield circumstances and conditions that are pleasing to me.

There is a two-fold takeaway.

The first is about what to do when you find yourself slipping back into your pre-LoA ways. When you notice you are not practicing something you know about how Law of Attraction works.

I’ve shared an example of this for me slipping back into my reliable narrator mode, but there are lots of ways a person could slip into pre-LoA versions of themselves.

When this happens—if it happens—I’m encouraging you to choose to be light about it. Don’t make it so serious.

I’ve had so many clients over the years who spend time and energy beating themselves up for getting off track with their LoA practice. It’s a waste of time and is only going to prevent an improved point of attraction.

So forgive yourself fast. Be light about it. Have fun playing the game.

It’s the journey that matters, so even when you’ve gotten off track, when you’ve seemingly forgotten everything you know about how LoA works, when you’re not putting into practice what you know, OK.

Start where you are.

Try to appreciate where you’re at. Yes, you heard me—appreciate. Because appreciation will release the resistance, and then you can head toward alignment, you can reconnect with your LoA practice, perhaps deepen it, you can learn from the unfolding, connect the dots and feel good all along the way.

When the pre-LoA version of me shows up, I’m definitely going to show her to the door. But I’m going to do it with a smile on my face, lightly, with curiosity about why she’s come knocking. I’m going to appreciate how far I’ve come as I gently, lightly see her to the door.

The second takeaway is about facing the facts.

“Many around you want to point out “reality” to you. They say, ‘Face the facts. Look at what-is.’ And we say to you, if you are able to see only what-is, then, by Law of Attraction, you will create only more of what-is… You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what-is in order to attract something different or something more.” —Abraham

This is the LoA skill, the day-to-day, moment-to moment practice of Law of Attraction.

Put your thoughts beyond what-is. Focus beyond what-is.

  • Don’t face the facts if the facts are not what you want to live.
  • Don’t be a reliable narrator including everything in your vibration.
  • Toss out your list of pros and cons. It’s nothing more than a list of mixed energy.

Instead, focus on what you want. Focus on what you like. Tell the best-feeling story that you can.

“If you let your self awareness be about your mood, rather than be fact based, the facts will change.” —Abraham

That’s how Law of Attraction works.

If you want to live different facts, new facts, if you want to live a new reality, then put your focus there now. Allow your thoughts to be about what is wanted regardless of what-is.

Tell a better-feeling story so that you feel good. Your good feeling will let you know with certainty what you are attracting.
