It’s a common mistake to try to use the Law of Attraction perfectly.
When people discover the Law of Attraction, they usually become obsessed with perfectionism – they don’t want to just make sure they’re using doing everything right, they want to make sure they’re doing absolutely everything it’s possible to do.
However, this quest to be perfect often prevents the Law of Attraction from working.
A desire to do everything possible to achieve your dreams is commendable. It’s a part of our very human nature.
However, working harder is not a sign of success with the Law of Attraction. It’s a sign of resistance.
You see, the Law of Attraction isn’t about being perfect. It isn’t about doing everything right. It’s about letting go and trusting.
If you are focusing on perfectionism, you are attached to the outcome. A part of you is concerned that if you don’t do everything possible, and do it absolutely right, you won’t get what you want.
Each time you look for more and more things to do to make the Law of Attraction work, you’re telling the Universe that you aren’t ready to receive what you’ve asked for. You’re afraid that you won’t receive what you want. And guess what? You don’t receive it.
All your hard work was a wasted effort because you forgot one simple rule:
The Law of Attraction is about HAVING FUN.
Fun is never hard work.
Fun is easy.
Fun is effortless.
Fun is enjoyable.
But how can you have fun if you don’t have what you want? If you don’t have the perfect job? your soulmate? more money? your ideal body? clear skin?
- You have to let go.
- You have to be detached from the outcome.
- You have to trust that the Universe is bringing you your desire.
- You have to have faith that what you want has already manifested, even if you can’t see it in front of you right now.
You don’t have to be perfect with the Law of Attraction.
It’s okay to make mistakes.
It’s okay to have a negative thought come up.
It’s okay to not visualize every day…or repeat an affirmation 1,000 times a day.
The key to success with the Law of Attraction is to do your best, not to be perfect. As long as you’re doing things right most of the time, you’ll manifest your desire.
Understand that the pressure of perfecting the Law of Attraction prevents your desire from coming to you. Each time you think, “Oops, I didn’t do it right,” you’re putting a barrier up that prevents your dreams from manifesting.
Instead of allowing yourself to receive your desire, you’re telling the Universe, “No wait, not yet. I made a mistake and you can’t give me what I want until I get it right.”
So where does the need to be perfect with the Law of Attraction come from?
Often it comes from limiting beliefs like “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t deserve to have what I want.” It can also come from hidden fears, such as the fear of abandonment.
Success with the Law of Attraction requires letting go.
You don’t need to look for more things to do to manifest your desire. Trust that you have done enough.
After all, the Law of Attraction isn’t about the things you do to manifest your desires, such as visualization and writing down what you want. Those are just tools to help you achieve vibrational alignment with your desire.
Release the need to find more things to do to make your intention manifest.
Let go of your fears.
Let go of the outcome.
Trust that the best thing will happen. The Universe has your best interests at heart.
Be happy and enjoy your life as it is now.
That will bring you results faster than perfecting the Law of Attraction.
