Nothing's Happening

I feel frustrated, demotivated and a little stupid. Been doing this for roughly a week and no, I still haven't found a job, no I'm not getting more money - or any money at all actually, and no I'm not in a particularly happier disposition than when I started. But I have 3 more weeks to go, damn. You guys have any luck?

I need a sign.

So how are things coming along for you? I am finding it easier to concentrate when I have soothing instrumental music on. It also prevents me from dozing off. I burn candles in a dark quiet room, sit in a comfortable position and have a go at it. I usually do it at night as I'm not a morning person.

I also go the The Secret website and read the stories in the Treasure Chest page often. I find it inspiring - eventhough it is uncertain if those stories are true. Doesn't matter. My focus is on myself and anything that will help me I will use.

5 Ways to Feel Good

One of the things I find most challenging is being in a state of feeling good. Obviously, if everything was working out and I was all happy and contented, then I wouldn't be doing this experiment. So, in case any of you have the same problem, here are some ideas.

1. Play with your pet - assuming you like animals and have one.

2. Help someone - random acts of kindness is really good.

3. Perform your hobby - be it knitting, gardening, watching TV or reading a book, this should put you in a good mood. Unless of course you're reading or watching some depressing material... like the newspaper or the evening news.

4. Learn or do something fun/new. This might not be time consuming, but generally speaking, doing and/or learning something new tends to make you feel good. Like bunjee jumping, baking a cake, learning Italian or starting your own blog.

5. Start a Gratitude Journal. Writing 5 things that you're grateful for in your life everyday somehow changes the way you see things. There are always things to be grateful for, like the eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to walk. Be thankful that you're not sleeping on the street or a homeless shelter, that you have a computer with internet, that you can read and write...

In an ideal world I'd list 5 more ideas here. But as mentioned I'm having trouble myself. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

The Basic Steps

1. Know what you want. Be clear about it. You don't need know how it's going to come to you. Just focus on the outcome.

2. Make sure you are genuinely feeling good before you start your visualization/meditation.

3. In a quiet place, focus on what you want for atleast 68 uninterrupted seconds (the longer the better though). They did not mention for how many days or years you have to this, probably until you get what you want. For the purposes of this experiment, I'm giving myself 30 days.

4. Visualize what you want as reality, not as a future possible event. Associate the feelings of happinness and excitement you'd be in if it had actually happened already. Attach strong positive passionate emotion to the intention. Negative emotion blocks/slows the speed of your intention.

The Main Idea

I just finished reading this Abraham Hicks recording, just to make sure I got the concepts down. To save you the trouble of buying and going through all those material, here's the basic concept.

1. Law of Attraction is absolute. It means like attracts like, thus if you whatever you contemplate - good or bad, is attracted to you.

2. The universe only responds to thoughts and images, so all you have to do is think/visualize what you want, and it will be attracted/brought to you.

3. Thoughts without emotion though has no power. E
motion is the communication system of the non-physical. Positive emotion means you’re in line with your inner being, while negative emotion means you’re disconnected. To make your visualization effective, it has to be accompanied with good feelings. Intending something without emotion doesn’t have attraction power.

4. "Good feelings" means feeling happy, excited, grateful, etc. It is important to put onself in a state of feeling good before and during visualization as this is the magic ingredient that will trigger the Law of Attraction in a powerful way.

The Secret

I just finished watching The Secret DVD and listening to its audio book. I'm at a point in my life where I am in need of a job, money and a happy life in general. I'm going to try giving this a go as I can't possibly come off worse than where I am now.

From the time it's been released, The Secret has gained many believers, and also many haters. It even came out on Oprah and magazines from Newsweek to Good Housekeeping had written articles about it. But the truth is in the pudding. I hope if there are any of you out there who have or are also trying it out, would join me in this life changing journey - that is, if it works.
