Have you ever heard of the Law of Attraction?
If you haven’t, watch The Secret on Netflix. You’ll thank me later.
The Law of Attraction is the idea that you can attract anything you want into your life. You can be rich, successful, find the love of your life, have infinite health or anything else you can possibly think of. And this ‘life hack’ is said to be done by changing one simple thing about yourself: your thoughts.
Let’s look at it this way. If you spend all your days complaining, talking about how much you hate your job, how no one loves you and that you’ll never be happy – that’s exactly what you’re going to get. That sends a negative vibration to the Universe that effects your life, and therefore attracts more negative things to you. But if you spend your whole day thinking about how lucky you are to have your job (even if you don’t really feel that way), how you are surrounded by love and that you’re so happy – that’s what your life will become. You’ll attract great opportunities and ‘coincidences’ that will change your life for the better. It’s that simple!
And that’s what I thought. And I made the choice to have happy thoughts all the time, to only be grateful and to pretend I had the dream life I wanted until I actually had.
Yeah, it didn’t really go like that.
Turns out it’s really difficult to fake. I came up with affirmations and visualisations, but part of me never really believe them. I wanted them to be true, and I daydreamed about an amazing life but I wasn’t connecting with it emotionally. See, the trick is to feel the feeling you would actually feel if you won £1 million on the jackpot. Try as I might, I couldn’t really do it.
Then I thought of something; music.
Maybe it’s just me, but I am in love with music. I go so far as being happy to be in the car for about three hours on the way to Wales because it means I can put my earphones in the whole time. I’ll easily bawl my eyes out at a sad song when I need to, and I absolutely love listening to that catchy guilty pleasure song that makes you start dancing without even realising it.
I had never put the two together before, but now I can see it makes a perfect match. Beats lying in bed to Emile Sande and imagining all the mean things I’d like to say to my ex, anyway.
So if you’re anything like me, and music changes your emotions, use that to raise your vibration and genuinely make yourself excited about something. Listen to a song you love and imagine your dream life, imagine getting up at 5am with sunrise yoga session and a green smoothie and feeling amazing. Dance to a song and imagine you’re dancing with your children in the kitchen of your five bedroom home. Even if it is that really sappy Disney song from your childhood that you can never not love, though you’ll never admit it – just try it. Really try to hone in on the emotions of the music and the possibilities are endless.
