5 Things Preventing You from Attracting What You Want

Using the law of attraction to manifest what you desire can be either wonderfully easy, or painfully hard depending on your full awareness. It is very important to become aware of the things that you do want, but it is just as necessary to be aware of the things which prevent you from getting what you want.

Here are 5 reasons you may not be successful in attracting what you want.

1) Not being in alignment

You must be in alignment with what you do want. To be in alignment with your desires is not always easy. Let’s say that you have a desire to attract twenty thousand dollars but you are flat broke, most everything in your environment speaks poverty. You may be wishing and hoping but everything in your being feels like ten dollars rather than twenty thousand dollars. Your objective then should be to find a way to begin to feel like you are worth twenty thousand dollars. This is the first and most crucial step to activating the law of attraction.

2) Lack of Focus

This is another hindrance to manifesting what you desire. In order to get the universe to move what you want into your physical reality, you must begin to hold a clear and steady focus of what you want all times throughout the day.

Think about what is causing you to lose focus. Are you easily distracted by the next big thing? Are people in your life causing you to not be as focused on what you desire? Are you keeping yourself from remaining focused? It is important to acknowledge what the cause is, and try to work on resolving your focus.

3) Lack of power, with intent

The one thing which generates power with your intention is emotion and feelings. In order for the law of attraction to work quickly with your desires, you must first know with great certainly that you do want what you are asking for and you must begin to feel it very deeply. If there are slight feelings of doubt those doubts will work as barriers affecting the attraction process from going in your favor.

4) Not knowing how reality works

The law of attraction is one of several laws that assist you in manifesting what you desire. There are other laws which cancel out your intention if you are not aware of them or how they work. Manifesting your desires requires that you learn all the necessary parts to get great success with attracting what you want.

You cannot allow negativity to creep in and deter you from attracting what you desire to have or desire to do. You can’t expect to attract a positive life, thinking negatively, it’s just not reality.

5) Surrounding yourself with people or things which contradict what you are creating

This is by far one of the most difficult parts to successfully applying the law of attraction. You see other people’s beliefs and doubts can greatly hamper your ability to manifest what you want. Those people could be family members, co-workers or friends. The universal law of attraction moves on vibration, and other people’s vibration can have a great effect on your own personal vibration causing you to attract based on the vibration of the group you are sounded by.

Hang around people who are where you want to be, even if you are not there yet. If you want to be rich, you don’t hang out with poor people. If you want to be sober, you don’t hang out with drunk people. Surround yourself with the right people, that speak to where you are going.

There are many parts to the attraction process. Take some time to reflect on what is preventing you from attracting what it is that you truly desire. Don’t self-sabotage. Be, do, and have what you say!
