How to Get Clear on the Things You Really Want (Using the Law of Attraction)

In the realms of LOA, also known as Law of Attraction, we’re told to focus on and think about things we want. One of the tricks to this is to focus on what you really want. Have you given thought to the things you really want? Wanting more money is a good thought, and I’m sure you really want more, or maybe it’s simply the stuff money can buy that you want. If you do want money, for the sake of having money, have you considered the amount of money you want?

Let’s see if we can get clear on the things we want and weed out the things we really don’t want.

We want all kinds of things – stuff, job, money, loveÉ

However, we don’t always realize it, but sometimes our wants are firmly tangled with the wants of others around us. We want things because someone else wants it. It’s time to get clear on what YOU really want instead of letting the wants of others interfere.

Check your wants or desires in these areas:

Love – What do YOU think love should look like? What kind of relationship will make you happy? Have you really thought about that? Does your perfect relationship include getting flowers or candy on a regular basis? Does it look like a dream life where everything runs smoothly? Or, do you simply want to spend time with a partner who offers you mutual respect, support, understanding and affection?

Get clear about the kind of relationship you want and the kind of partner you want so you can attract the right person to you, not some ideal of what people think love should look like. A fairy tale romance is perfect for books and movies, but they rarely exist in real life. A stable, loving relationship is always a better choice.

Career – Are you in a career path that you’ve chosen for yourself or that someone else chose for you? Or did you choose this path because of the money instead of because it’s something you really wanted to do?

Or, if you don’t have a career, do you really want one?

It’s important to have a career that you’ll enjoy. Going to work every day is less tedious if you enjoy what you’re doing. Perhaps you’re perfectly fine with having a job. Perhaps you have a job and hate it, but it pays the bills. In that situation, you need to keep your job until something better comes along, but you also need to get clear on the type of job you want and the working conditions of that job. A poor working environment makes for a long day, a long week and a miserable working life. Of course, you often have to endure these things until you get what you want. Getting clear about the job or career you want and the kind of people you want to work with will help you attract a job or career that is more suitable for you.

Material items – Do you want certain stuff because of reasons that are true to you? Or do you want stuff because you’re filling an empty spot or because they’re status symbols?

Being clear on why you want things can help you decide what it is you really want. Will driving an expensive sports car make you feel any more important than driving a good dependable car? Would it be better to drive a less expensive car and use the money saved on other things?

Maybe material possessions aren’t that important to you. Maybe you’re just as content to have a modest home and furnishings, but would rather spend money on travel or buying things for others. No answer is right or wrong, only what’s right or wrong for you. Get clear on what it is you really want and what you want money and material items to accomplish and represent for you.

Money – This seems to be the big item with Law of Attraction. However, until you know how much you want to attract, you won’t be able to attract it. You need to figure out a real dollar amount and keep in mind how you decided that figure. Is it to live comfortably? To be able to give to charity? To have a big savings account? Until you get clear on an amount and how you intend to attract that amount, it won’t happen. Even once you determine these things it will still take time for everything to be put into motion. Don’t give up.

Yes, you can attract all kinds of things, but you have to become aligned with what you really want, not what you think you want or someone else wants for you. You will have to put everyone else aside, their wants, and determine what it is you truly want and what you want to accomplish by using LOA.
