“That which you think of, but thereafter never speak of, creates at one level. That which you think of and speak of creates at another level. That which you think, speak, and do becomes manifest in your reality.” Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, Book 1.
The more action we put into our efforts, the more likely it is that the law of attraction is actually going to work. With action, we are expressing our certainty that we really want this thing, and we are not putting obstacles in our way by creating doubts about our wanting.
Rhonda Byrne says that we are either manifesting or we are practicing not manifesting, because the law works all the time. We do have to believe that the law is working. And with this belief comes miracles.
Remember to think, speak, and do everything we can to bring about this hoped for thing. Remember that if it truly feels right inwardly, then it is a right thing. And without this inner certainty, we are barking up the wrong tree.
