When I wanted a Benz and had no idea how to get one nor money – I would get in my rusty, bent up Hyundai and say to myself, “I love driving my Benz!” “I’m so lucky to have this beautiful car!” I just pretended – in every way I could think of – whenever I thought of it – that I was driving a Benz. When I parked in a lot and they hid my car in the back behind the others, but the nice cars are parked up front for everybody to see – I’d pretend one of them was mine – just by looking at it and feeling glad it was mine, or saying, again to myself silently, “I love the way they always park my car up front”. I’d ‘see’ admiring looks when I was driving my pretend Benz, and when I went to get the Hyundai fixed I’d hear the guy saying “It’s such a joy to work on this car!” I could 'feel' it as I was driving my Hyundai – I’d feel it was handling like a Mercedes, I could ‘smell’ it – leather seats, not cloth; heated in winter.
I think about 6 months after I started this, (this was 10 years ago) someone stole my Hyundai. So I went out and bought a Benz! Now I always knew the model I wanted – either the little 380 or 450 or 560 SL convertible – so that’s all I ever saw myself in. They all look the same and have, more or less, the same features except the engine size, so I really didn’t care which one. And I didn’t know what color. When I started shopping for a car, I knew I’d be led to the right car. I looked at BMW’s, and the Toyota Celica and the Nissan 300ZX. None of them felt right. I still thought I couldn’t afford a Benz – I had a limited amount of money to spend and all the Benzes I saw were too expensive. Eventually, I found one that was the model I wanted and the price I could afford, but I felt the color was wrong – it was champagne tan. But that let me know my car was close. Then I found an ad for a lapis blue 380SL at my price and I went right up and said, “I’ll have one of those, thank you”. And I’ve been loving it ever since.
This is an instance of attracting/creating a specific thing because I was certain that I wanted it. We can also create by focusing on the qualities we want. In a new (or used, but new to us) car one might want: safety, reliability, comfortable, room for the kids and their friends, gas efficient, stylish, affordable. You might want particular features – CD player or DVD for the kids, all wheel drive, heated leather seats. When I create a car, some of the qualities I always want are: a convertible, snazzy, fast, looks good and I look good in it, fun to drive, fast, easily affordable, safe and reliable. You can specify the qualities and the features you want without knowing the exact make and model you want. Source will then bring it all together for you. Using law of attraction is so much fun!
