I thought it might be a good idea to write a post about depression and the Law of Attraction, as well as mentioning the ‘luck’ element. I get emails from people who really want manifestation to work for them but they’re just not seeing results.
What really stands out in these emails is the deep misery some people find themselves in. I hardly get any emails about manifesting the little things…the most wanted manifestation is a complete change of circumstances in their lives and dealing with depression and the Law of Attraction.
Some emails are hard to read because I feel their desperation…I really do. These are not emails about wanting a new car, or needing a promotion, they’re mostly about money and the sheer misery of not having it, which leads to frustration and depression.
Again, I feel their pain. No matter what anyone says, if you haven’t got money, your life is so much harder. If you have money, your life and mood improves.
In the vast majority of cases it’s a cold, hard, logical fact that money make us happy.
Sure, some people will say money is not the be-all and end-all to our existence and the best things in life are free…but try telling that to someone who hasn’t got money or are in desperate need of it.
I’ve been there…crippling debt and no disposable income whatsoever. I’ve had to put up with second hand sofa’s (third hand in some cases), clothes bought from car boot sales and eBay, having to use the cheapest supermarkets, borrowing from family (highly embarrassing) and always feeling as if I was cursed. Yes, I’ve been there.
Depression and the Law of Attraction
I always thought it was because I was just unlucky and because of thinking like that, I would then spiral into depression. I mean, when your under the impression that the world is against you, what are the chances of you ever being happy?
The more I wanted something good to happen to me, the opposite always occurred.
It was only when I reached the end of my tether, angry and determined that my life began to turn around. I’ve written about my transformation before, so I won’t go in to it here, but people who need to change their lives but can’t do so because of this supposed barrier of bad luck need to read on.
Luck has nothing to do with how you run your life or how it’s turned out.
An example of being unlucky is to be crushed under a falling piano from a tall building and not know anything about it. Good luck is when you happen to look up at the right moment.
Winning the lottery isn’t luck either…that’s just chance. Mathematical odds in their millions, but it’s chance all the same. If it happens that your numbers match those of the lottery draw, it is just coincidence. You might feel lucky (indeed you would!) but it’s just a chance happening.
So Why Are You So Vocal About The Law of Attraction When It Doesn’t Influence My Chances Of Winning The Lottery?
Do you really, I mean REALLY, think you are going to win the lottery? And without any question or any doubt?
Can you see yourself picking up that huge cheque? Can you commit to thinking about the situation every waking moment? Feeling the euphoria?
EVERY. WAKING. MOMENT?
I realised this some time ago, but what I COULD envisage was seeing myself getting out of my mess by working hard towards a happy life. Not only physically, but mentally.
If I could see myself as happy, then money wouldn’t be an issue. Seriously, money wouldn’t matter if only I was happy. Why would it?
My depression and the Law of Attraction meant it was going to be an uphill struggle to try an figure out a way of changing the situation.
But How Do I Manifest Happiness?
You could sit there all day and think about what a great happy life you were going to receive and how all my money worries would be taken care of, but how is it going to happen if you just sit there?
Manifestation isn’t a magic spell. It isn’t in the same family as wishes, hopes and prayers.
Manifestation is using your mind to process the act of receiving your wanted destiny. A reprogramming mind exercise that you learn though habit. Yes, it is brain washing but for all the right reasons.
You will be amazed when that invisible universal force that surrounds all of us, gets to work. The Power of the Law of Attraction.
If you’re not where you want to be, right now, it’s time to clean your mind and start afresh. So far, living with your current mindset hasn’t worked, has it?
Thinking and doing the same thing over and over again has got you to where you are now. If you want to get out of that habit (because it’s not been good for you) you will have to form a new one by changing almost everything about your mind processes.
This is where a lot of people who try to understand the idea of manifesting get it so wrong. Thoughts without actions do diddly-squat! Sure, thinking about it might make you feel better, but that’s called dreaming, and dreams rarely come true.
Think and then take action on those thoughts.
But I Thought All I Had To Do Was Think?
Thinking is just a part of it…a very BIG part, yes, but your visions and imagination have to be so true and clear, that your actions become easy to implement.
What you want is already there. Accept this and you will receive it, but it won’t happen by just sitting there. You have take action on your CLEAR visions.
No, it’s not easy, but with total commitment and actionable work you CAN re-train your mindset and be rewarded with huge benefits that will feature in every aspect of your life.
Take steps to beat your depression and the Law of Attraction will be there to help you along the way.
I’m writing this post for the people who are in a desperate situation, people who are struggling to make the Law of Attraction work because of debilitating depression.
Those who can manifest at will are already in the place they want to be. Those who can’t manifest anything haven’t reached that level because the one big thing holding them back is their current depressing, no-way-out situation.
If you’re in that position, then you know what you must do to change it.
I Know About Depression
Listen, I know what it’s like to be depressed and lost. I know what it’s like to feel the deep emotion of uselessness. I know what it’s like to be on the verge of ending it all. Nothing matters when you’re deeply depressed…nothing. You do not care what happens to you or anyone else.
It was only when I found myself in a brief moment of normality that I told myself I must pull out all the stops to get my life together. I must have a clear image of where I want to be in 12 months time. Or fail at life.
That’s when I found the Law of Attraction. As I said, I’ve written about this before, but I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to not give up on this Law.
Back then, my life was the manifestation of how I’d thought and acted.
It was not about being lucky or unlucky or whether I felt I’d been cursed…it was about how my mind had been programmed over the years.
I worked with my depression and the Law of Attraction to overcome the negativity that had kept me depressed.
If you hate your current situation and you cannot see an end to it, then it’s time to reprogram your own mind. Seriously.
When you also understand that being happy is far more important than having money, the task becomes a lot easier.
No Apologies for Promoting LOA
I’ve received a few of emails over the years saying I only write my blog to sell manifestation ebooks. Wow! The reason I promote those books (and there are only two or three) is because they can help. If I wanted to make a ton of money I would promote those life and manifestation coaches who charge thousands of dollars for just repeating what is in those ebooks.
They are a great start (a platform if you like) to the world of manifesting. Origins by Katherine Hurst and the Manifestation Miracle by Heather Mathews are the only ebooks I give consideration to at the moment. Take them or leave them for what they are, but they both have value in my opinion.
I am in no way a life coach (the idea makes me cringe!) but I do live the Law of Attraction way of life. When I think how depressed and lost I was (it seems like centuries ago now), I thank my ‘lucky’ stars every day that I came across this law.
It really is an answer to many peoples depression.
Take Back Control
If you’re in that state of mind where nothing matters or you just don’t care about anything, I plead with you, when you get a brief window of normalness, to take the bull by the horns and read as much about the Law of Attraction and about manifesting your desires as you can.
As soon as you feel the black cloud coming and that spiral downwards journey you’re about to go on, grab a publication about LOA and read it with all your might and concentrate wholly. Get the Law implanted in your mind and your reprogramming will begin.
Yes, it is easier said than done (I understand) but it’s time to beat the bully, to not let doubt and depression win this time, and to start reprogramming your mind.
Depression and the Law of Attraction should hold no fears…LOA will always win.
It’s a Hell of a journey and there will be times when that black cloud will be just too damn heavy, but you will beat it and the Law of Attraction will help you over time.
I still re-read many books wherever I go (along with those ebooks ‘promoted’ on my blog). They are near my bedside, in glove compartment of my car, in the kitchen draw and I even take them when I go on my travels.
I kid you not.
I’m no Doctor, Psychiatrist, healer or coach but I know the LOA saved me from a life of misery and it can do the same for with time, belief and commitment.
I Feel A Publication Coming On!
I’ve even taken to writing a book about the Law of Attraction, only it’s a little different from most out there. I’ve no idea how it will go down with fellow LOA disciples as it gives the reader a no-holds-barred look at the LOA and what desperate people must do to change their lives.
It’s pretty brutal, even though I say so myself, and is basically a hard line approach to getting what you want from your life and the sacrifices people will have to go through to get to where they want to be.
I’m still writing it in between my wanderlust life and home life but I hope to get it out by the end of 2017…it seems an age away, but Christmas is only 10 months away and you know how quickly that creeps up on you!
Let me know if you would like a review copy when I’m done.
That finishes this rather heavy post apart from me saying that if you’re desperate for money, I understand, truly I do, but you’re not going to manifest it by just thinking. It takes a whole lot of movement from inside your mind and in your actions to get started.
Your ultimate goal is happiness. Make that your destiny; the money will come for everything you need once your mindset is in a contented happy state.
I found that using my depression and the Law of Attraction together got me out of a huge dark hole that I thought I would never be able to climb out of, such is the power of LOA.
