#LOAMonday No. 9: You don’t need a reason to succeed, but if you insist…  

Here’s the thing: you don’t need a reason to succeed. You don’t need a reason to be OK with attracting all your wildest dreams and prosperity. 

You don’t have to be anything. You don’t have to do anything first. You don’t have to look a certain way. You don’t have to be someone’s expectation. 

You don’t need all that. To get into the Law of Attraction, you simply have to believe you deserve it. You don’t have to be perfect. Conditions don’t have to optimal first. 

But I will give you a reason anyway.

We need you…

To be you!

Do you want to know what that reason is as to why you can just be alright with attracting ALL the abundance through the Law of Attraction? 

We need you to be OK with it because we need your gifts. It’s not about you. It’s about the world. The world needs your gifts. The world needs you to contribute and will reward you handsomely. 

We have been waiting for you to make the thing. We have been waiting for you to bring your voice. We want the sunlight to shine on your purpose. We want you to win, crush it — whatever you want to call it. 

Change the world with your purpose. People will pay for it. People will buy your thing because they appreciate the problem it solves for them. 

It’s time to share your brilliance with the world. We need it. We need you to get off your ass and share your greatness. The rewards will come… 

LOA Monday #7: It's book club time, can we become millionaires in a minute?

Just a quick #LOAMonday today!

I am blogging on my lunch break. I just started a new (to me) book last night that a friend loaned me. It’s called The One Minute Millionaire.

The book talks about “ahas” or what we called in my coaching classes at SWIHA, “A-ha moments.” If you’ve been coached by me, you know you get to have LOTS of a-has moments!

The book has a website that lists the ahas if you want to check it out.

If you study the law of attraction as I do, you may have heard of some of these before. My favorite over the years was taught to me by my Aunt Lori, who is a religious science minister. That one is the phrase and belief that, “I am a money magnet!” I say this whenever I receive money, even pennies.

Especially pennies!

I’ll blog more on those a-ha moments later. I’m thinking of doing either some Instagram or Facebook lives as well. If you’re reading the book you can join in! Follow me on Twitter & Instagram @heatherlarson. The Facebook page is here.

A-ha!

#LOA Monday #6: Ruminations on spiritual paths — can LOA be akin to 12-step routes to wellness?

LOA is meant to be a spiritual path.

Why? Because we start thinking of something larger than ourselves. We start to work with spiritual tools / ideas like faith, tithing, “paying it forward” and surrender.

I’ve seen it all the time working in the addiction field where people come in wanting to change and many tell me they feel spirituality is the only way they can do it. In this way, choosing LOA as a way to live is similar to choosing a 12-step or church-oriented program in order to obtain and sustain recovery. 

In both cases, it is choosing a spiritual path to create lasting change.

Isn’t that what we are doing when we engage in law of attraction activities? In LOA, we want to change our thinking. That’s the same task we undertake in addiction recovery — we have to change our thinking. LOA gives us a spiritual path with spiritual tools to do that. 

I wouldn’t recommend LOA for addiction treatment. (Duh!) But most people do want a way to change their way of thinking. We want to change our habits — either we want to create new ones of our choosing or eliminate those that no longer serve us. Habit change requires a thinking change. Changing our brains is never easy. It takes work. 

So in addiction recovery we are choosing to eliminate addictive behaviors like obsessive sex, shopping, gambling, eating and substance abuse. (Or any combo thereof). The way is clear: addiction is bad, living clean is good. 

What are we trying to get rid of then when we choose to engage in the law of attraction? Poverty and lack. 

Isn’t it all the same? 

Could LOA be our spiritual path to recovering from poverty and and a lack mindset? Meaning LOA is to poverty and lack as spirituality is to addiction? 

I’m asking because I’m meditating on this today. If we didn’t want to make changes in our lives, there wouldn’t be books about habits, addiction treatment centers, and a sea of information online about how to attract better things into our lives through LOA. 

I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

LOA Monday #4: Law of Attraction in practice — creating an LOA Journal for yourself

Journaling is my favorite thing to do in my downtime for self-care. I’m so obsessed with bullet journaling, stickers, washi tape, stencils, fine liner pens and brush pens for lettering… My mom was into calligraphy when I was little, so maybe I’m turning into my mother.

My LOA journal started simply and I’m going to share it with you how here.

The two things you need are some kind of pen and a notebook — it doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive to start out. I got my current one at Michael’s (2 for $5) and a set of fine liner pens for less than $20 with a coupon (and a super rad cashier).

My current habit with my LOA journal is to center on three things:

  • Gratitude
  • Forgiveness
  • Affirmations
#LOA Journaling.jpg


I start by making the gratitude list, then the forgiveness list, and finally the affirmations.

The journal helps me find clarity. Over time, I see the affirmations I am repeating over the days and weeks. I see then what my heart’s truest desires are — and I do the work to honor those. One thing that has manifested for me over the summer is great health. But it did so in the strangest way! One day we thought I was passing a kidney stone, then we suspected cancer, and then it turned out none of those things were true. I’d become a medical mystery to the doctors. But to me, I was at home in my LOA journal affirming over and over, “I AM HEALTHY!”


(At the time, nothing in my life was pointing towards me being healthy. I even began looking into work-from-home jobs and disability).

Ultimately, it turns out my spine is getting the better of my internal organs due to my scoliosis. The human body is amazing like that. It was like my shadow self was trying to convince me I was NOT healthy but I knew in my heart that I AM HEALTHY!

You can start with the tiniest notebook to make your lists or the fanciest bullet journal you buy — or create. As always, remember LOA is about creating a feeling. It’s about being in the vibration that attracts your desires, which we can get into by visualizing it as if we already have it.

Gratitude, forgiveness, and affirmation lists are great LOA tools. They are part of a muscle we use and flex each day in an LOA practice. It’s like weight lifting — for your vibration. It’s calisthenics for your energy field.

LOA Monday #3: How Can I Use the Law of Attraction?

Welcome to another LOA Monday!

Check out #LOAMonday #1 here and #2 here.

Now that we went over the why, let’s go over the how.

#LOAMonday.jpg

I like to refer to the Law of Attraction as a practice.

I feel like everything has a learning curve. To implement lifetime changes that will stick, we need to practice. Practice implies consistent and repeated action to the best of our ability. It will get easier over time.

We will get better over time.

I also want to offer a word of caution. I think I already made my point clear about how The Secret may do more harm than good when interpreted incorrectly. I want to make it clear today that coaching, spirituality, and spiritual coaching (which is how I coach but not all I do) are all about more than #LOA.

I am providing #LOAMonday as a tool to help inspire you to do the work. It’s when you get into a rut doing the work that you call on me as a coach. The work is not optional — we are all here to do it!

My caution is inspired by recent events with friends online. Friends of mine old and new who have gone in on fraudulent spiritual teachers.  I think I’ll make a separate post on that to honor that appropriately...

Until then, have a great Monday! Believe you already have what you desire -- it's how you change your conscious thought to be in the vibration to attract it!
