The Law of Attraction is not Working For Me!

The Law of Attraction is not Working For Me!

‘ It isn’t Working for me’

Oh I wish I had a dollar for every time someone came to my Sydney Life coaching practise and complained ‘ It’s not working for me’ or ‘ Where is the money, relationship, career that I have been asking for’! Where is my stuff!!!!!’

As a Sydney Life Coach and Confidence Coach with over 17 years experience, I use the Law of Attraction frequently with my clients and when professional speaking.  The laws of attraction are actually really simple  – ‘ That which it’s like itself is drawn’.  Thanks to movies like The Secret, more and more people are now familiar with the LOA and are using it’s concepts on a regular basis.

However, what I have learned through my work with Abraham Hicks ( is that life doesn’t only respond to your words, it responds to your Feelings or the vibration of your feelings.  In addition, what you expect to receive in life is always revealed to you.
I have written about the importance of expectation in previous blogs,   but today I would like to explore with you why the Law of Attraction may not be working for you personally.

Let’s imagine that you have used the LOA to ask for what you want and are patiently ( or not so patiently!) waiting for the goods / money / relationship etc to manifest into your experience.  This is a good start! However, the issue is that many of us become impatient and start complaining about it NOT arriving as soon as we would like it too.  It is then we start to ask ‘ Where is my stuff!’ or complain that ‘ It is not working’ for us.

Remember, this is a universe of inclusion and if you are complaining that your desires have not yet manifested into your experience, then guess what – your desires are not going to manifest into your experience yet!

The law of attraction is always working, so complaining ‘ where is my stuff’ will just attract more of ‘ where is my stuff!’

To adjust this pattern, you need to be more open to receiving it. Try a few of these more general statements to improve your feelings of receiving what you want:

1) I know it isn’t here yet but it’s on its way
2) Everything is unfolding perfectly for me, it won’t be long now’
3) I am really looking forward to experiencing the money / success / clients / career that I desire.
