Attract What You Want For The Future By Focusing On Right Now

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. If you have ever visited this blog before you know that I put a huge emphasis on living in the NOW. One of my favorite books is Eckhart Tolle's Practicing the Power of Now: Essential Teachings, Meditations, and Exercises from The Power of Now. His book explains that there is only ever right now. The past is gone. The future is not here yet. There is only this moment.

"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly."


With this mind set, it easy to attract what you want. The reason that is easy is that it rids you of worry. You stop worrying about the mistakes of the past. You also have no anxiety for the future. Living for the moment lets you appreciate what is right in front of you.

It's still okay to make plans for the future but don't make the mistake of thinking that you need to reach this goal in order to be happy. I hear people say all the time that they will finally be happy when they make a million dollars, or get a certain job. This leaves you "happyless" for an undetermined amount of time. Who knows when you will make a million dollars. Who knows when you will get that promotion. So why worry about it?

When you begin to appreciate the present, the Universe will begin to line up opportunities to reach your goals. It is so much easier to go with the natural flow of the Universe, than it is trying to swim upstream.

What will you do? Will you fill your mind with unwanted worry which attracts more to worry about? Or will you fill your mind with gratitude and love for the moment that you have right now? Start your day with a bunch "thank you's" for what you already have and set the tone for an amazing day of creation. So what are you creating?

Enjoy the following article, and have a great day living moment by moment. Hour by hour. Second by second. You'll see. It really makes this existence so enjoyable. Many blessings, and ALWAYS FEEL GOOD!



Eckhart explains how "reacting to content" brings you out of the NOW.



Attracting a Better Future by Focusing on the Present:
By Antonio Thornton

You could have an ideal life very quickly - if you could instantly put yourself in harmony with it. The Law of Attraction will bring you whatever matches your dominant vibration. But sometimes reaching too high and expecting immediate results will create more disappointments than positive manifestations. It's often better to get yourself started in the right direction by moving in smaller stages.

There's nothing wrong with focusing on what you "ultimately" want. Just remember that there is no final goal - as you reach one goal, you will be inspired to set a new one. Put more of your attention on making each moment in your day more enjoyable. You can improve your future by making a small step - right now.

Your current circumstances are the result of your patterns of thought. If you can make a small positive change in your thoughts, you will see a change in your circumstances. An improvement in thoughts will bring an improvement in your life. Improve your thoughts a little more, and you will see more positive manifestations. You'll feel happier because of this positive change, and you'll also be encouraged by your success. You can see yourself moving in the direction of your "grander" goals.

Put More Attention on the Present

Let's say that you are determined to change your life by putting more attention on the things you want to have or achieve. You decide you will devote some time each evening to meditating or visualizing in order to put yourself more in harmony with your goals. This is great, but what about your thoughts during the rest of the day?

* If you are irritated by traffic on your way to work, you are putting yourself in a bad mood. That mood will tend to continue through the day, and you will attract more irritating experiences. If you want to spend time focusing on your "perfect life" when you get home, you will be working against the momentum of the bad feelings you had all day. Even if you manage to calm down and start thinking positively, this won't end up being your dominant vibration for the majority of the day.

* Yes, it would be a good idea to sit down, relax, and put your attention on more positive thoughts after having a frustrating day. However, it would be more productive to focus on having a pleasant drive to work when you first wake up. Then while you are traveling, you could look for things to enjoy along the way, and imagine having a smooth, productive day at the office. You will have a much better day, and this frame of mind will make it fairly easy to put your attention on things that you want to manifest in your life.

Now you will be moving with the flow, not against it. Once you are moving in a positive direction, it's much easier to keep going that way. Establish a pattern of thought and action that puts you in harmony with the life that you desire. The Law of Attraction will take care of the rest.

Law of Attraction isn't something you can master right away, and does require practice.
