Working The Law of Attraction for the Whole Family
This article will tell you how to incorporate The Law of Attraction, and The Secret into your home life to benefit your entire family.
Implementing the Law of Attraction is an excellent core value for the entire family. It’s an excellent way to teach your children how to do their best today, in order to help them achieve their potential for the future. Your entire family will benefit from learning how to reach all of their dreams, individually and as a family.
The Law of Attraction is a study in learning to manifest more of what you want and less of what you don’t want. It’s the hot topic of every self-improvement guru and is even showing up in church study groups. Let’s work on bringing it home.
The first thing you will need to do is schedule time for family meetings. They don’t have to be lengthy, but they should be at least once a week. For the first meeting, make a list of what everyone wants for the family. For example, you might want to take a family vacation that’s more extravagant than normal. Maybe you would all like a bigger house or a swimming pool in the back yard. Don’t worry about what is realistic or not, just list everything everyone in the family wants.
For the second meeting, you will also need a poster board, glue stick, pictures, maybe some old magazines, a pair of scissors, and some colored markers. You are going to use these items to create a goals poster for the wants that were listed in the last meeting.
Law of Attraction Family Goals Poster
- Put a family picture in the middle of the poster board. It doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy, just one that everyone in the family is included in.
- Draw or cut out pictures in magazines of the things you want and glue them to the poster board. Let everyone in the family have a turn adding the thing they are most excited about.
- · Be creative and have fun!
- Hang the poster somewhere in a common area where the entire family can see it as a reminder of what you are all working towards together.
Now that your family knows what it is they want, it’s time to think about how to get it. Are you going to work on several goals at once? Are you going to pinpoint one at a time to accomplish? Are you going to break into teams and work on reaching the goals that way? Give everyone until the next meeting time to think of his or her suggestions.
This third meeting will be to list the suggestions you’ve been thinking about since the last meeting and come up with a good action plan. For example, if you want to save money for a vacation, have everyone list ways they can save money. The children can make sure they turn lights off in the house to help keep utility bills lower creating more money towards a vacation, you might decide to not eat ice cream for a month, and to put that money aside towards a goal, or collect and turn in aluminum cans for extra money. Encourage everyone to brainstorm and then make decisions on the most workable solutions.
Remember to make lots of small steps for each goal. For the example of a new swimming pool, perhaps the first step would be to research the best brands and prices, and to make a list of all the other items needed, like new swimming suits! Try to give each family member a task. Maybe the little ones would need swimming lessons if your goal is a swimming pool, or if it’s a vacation, maybe get some books or tapes at the library to help them learn about where you will be going so they can share the things they learned. The important thing is to allow everyone to feel that they have a part in creating your family goals.
Start future meetings by having every person mention two or three things they are grateful for, whether it relates directly towards the family goals or not. Being grateful helps to raise good energy and keeping the energy positive is very important to attract more positive energy towards you.
After everyone has shared their gratitude list, talk about what tasks were completed towards a goal, and what is next on the list. This is also a prime time to talk about individual goals and make suggestions for steps that can be taken. You will be amazed at how creative your children can be as they apply what they learn about reaching your family goals toward their own personal goals!
Remember as you reach one goal, to put a gold star or some other significant symbol over it on your goals poster. You might even want to make a new poster every so often as you reach most of the goals on one, so you can add new goals. You can also have a separate scrapbook for each of the larger goals, with the steps broken down to help you and your children see how the little steps are adding up towards the big picture. The ideas are endless. Be creative, have fun, and enjoy attracting the things your family truly wants!
