The PMA/NMA Coin

In positive thinking, your mental attitude is often referred to as a coin. It’s an apt description. You have two forms of mental attitude: a positive mental attitude (PMA), and a negative mental attitude (NMA). Just like the heads and tails of a coin. And just like a coin, it can be flipped very easily and it will never come to rest on its edge. This means there is no third option of a neutral mental attitude. It is either positive or it is negative.

 Manifestation is the results of your thoughts. Sounds simple if you are already a manifestation student but do you really believe it and live by it?

 Monsoons have been described as “a seasonal reversing wind accompanied by corresponding changes in precipitation.”  As I listen to the melodic sound of raindrops cascade from the skies, two things came to mind.

I have the advantage and am not ignorant of the devices of Satan.  The advantage is only lost if I give it away. God gave me the advantage and I will not give it up, period!  I thank God for the advantage He gives me in all things.

Where most people go wrong using the law of attraction to achieve the success they want comes down to a combination of two things 

  • Dwelling too much on what they're trying to manifest.
  • Not taking enough action

What Does It All Mean

You need to practice surrender and acceptance around the law of attraction.  It has to become a piece of you.  For me, this involves my surrender to the Lord and universal source.   

You have to live your life knowing that what you think about, focus on practice will assist you in getting anything and everything that you want.  It has to be part of your everyday life. 

It’s the law of attraction – focus on source - that you need to make a part of you - not whatever it is you want to manifest. 

If you focus too much on trying to get whatever it is you want, you're going to do nothing but stress yourself out. 

Really, what you're doing is dwelling on the fact that there is something that you really want and you don't have it.  You are focusing on what you “don’t have” or not having want you, instead of focusing on the feeling of what it is like to achieve your success.

By keeping yourself focused on the misery of not achieving your success you are creating a negative energy that guess what – attracts more of the same energy!

So instead of dwelling too much on what you want to manifest, start appreciating what you already have and continue to enjoy your life. 

The magic of the law of attraction is that you will achieve success but you have to allow that it will not always be the exact way that you thought it would. Success will come eventually.  Just continue to live your life and work at it until it does. 

Not Taking Massive Action

The sad fact is that people don't take enough action toward achieving their goal and miss the success that is really almost there.

The common misconception is that the law of attraction makes it seem like all you need to do is sit around thinking about manifesting until it spontaneously happens. 

This simply isn’t the way it works.

Rather you need to visualize, feel and get inspired by what you want and then keep it in the back of your mind and give it attention when it randomly pops up, and then go on with your life. 

You have to co-create with the universe to get what you want. The law of attraction on gives what you can’t create yourself. 

Again the key is to think about whatever it is that you want and then make a decision about what you can do to achieve it. 

As you visualize and feel around what you can do will help you get closer to your goal and to patiently wait for that inspired thought. 

You need to follow your heart – it’s more in tune with the universe than your head is. 

Setting yourself an inviolate time to think and feel about what you can do to achieve the success of your manifestation and if you are patient and wait you will eventually have an inspired thought.

This is universe - so when it speaks act on what it is saying.  Take the action and go for it.

There is no better time than now!  By surrender and trust you will get closer and closer to achieving the success that you wish to bring in your life.

When you start observing your mind, one of the first things you might notice is that you don’t really control it. Okay, let me ask, how many times you have read something and really tried to concentrate on the subject, but you catch yourself wandering off and thinking about something completely different at the same time?

Most people are not aware of the power of thought or dismiss the Law of Attraction as a myth. Nothing could be further from the truth: we become what we think about.
