What is deliberate attraction? The name is a reference to the Abraham-Hicks materials on Law of Attraction where they talk about the Law of Deliberate Creation. You can watch a brief video with Esther Hicks talking about creating deliberately here. In short, when we are intending to deliberately attract something into our lives we must first come into the feeling, energy, vibration or alignment of what it is that we truly want by focusing on what we want.
For example, when I was younger I wanted a man to come into my life and love me dearly and want to marry me. I thought if I waited around long enough it would happen eventually. The thought alone of my desire was not enough to make it happen. Truthfully, it was so out of alignment with my energy back then for many reasons; the idea of marriage scared me, I was fearful of getting hurt, I didn’t trust someone to be there for me and love me, and my heart was closed to giving and receiving love. As a result, the relationships I was attracting by default were based in fear and neediness, which was just a reflection of my own energy at that time. It never ended well needless to say.
This kind of default attraction is what most of us do in life because we weren’t taught to deliberately create our reality as a child. There’s a lot of media (books, movies, TV, and dating advice columns) that encourages romance by default – like the notion of falling in love by locking eyes across a crowded room. For the record, I do not recommend choosing anything, especially your life partner, by default attraction. Default attraction happens when you haven’t thought in advance what you want in a relationship (it’s so important to know that) or what you value and are just “waiting” for the right one to come along, when you’re physically attracted to someone and just go for it, or just accept being in a relationship with someone who doesn’t treat you the way you would like.
And please don’t feel bad if you’ve done this. I operated this way for most of my life and we are literally encouraged to act this way by popular entertainment. If you’re feeling bad about it then know that is just your higher self telling you that it’s time to change and attract deliberately!
So in deliberate attraction, we clarify want we want and get into the good feeling space (or energy, vibration, etc.) of what it is we do want – not what we’re afraid of happening. This can happen quickly or may take more time depending on the amount of negative energy someone has around what they desire. What is the result of deliberately attracting our soul mate instead of mating by default?
From my own personal experience I can honestly tell you that when I took deliberate charge of my love life, these were the results:
I had clarity and KNEW the type of man I would end up with in advance
It took the mystery and guessing games out of dating
I felt in charge and confident going on dates
I never felt pressured to have sex
I didn’t play into or focus on the undesirable behavior of anyone around me
I could be honest about what I wanted with others
I didn’t waste time with men that weren’t in alignment with me
The men I did meet, whether there was interest or not, respected me and were very nice
After only seven weeks of dating online with deliberate intent, I met the love of my life
Dating him felt good and was joyful
He is exactly the kind of man I deliberately wanted to draw into my life
Though we aren’t perfect people :), our marriage feels great and wonderful every day
Living deliberately in this way is a choice we can make every day with decisions big and small, beginning with our thoughts and intentions. As strong women in this day and age it’s more important than ever to choose our love based on good feelings and that’s in alignment with our highest self, or God or Spirit. Our partner must support the best woman we are capable of being. Looking back I can’t believe I ever accepted less than that and I hope no woman feels she has to settle for less again.
For now I’d love your comments – Which goals or achievements in your life do you feel you created deliberately? How do you feel when you think of those things?
With my heart full of love,
