According to life coach Cheryl Richardson, we all possess a spiritual power that allows us to create the kind of life we desire and influence the lives of others. By managing our minds, recognizing that our thoughts have power and using that power for change, we can create great lives, she says. Jean talks with Cheryl about applying this law of attraction to our lives.
In order to harness the spiritual power that will have tremendous impact on your life and the lives of those around you, you have to engage in the thoughts, words and activities that create a sense of excitement and enthusiasm about forward movement, Cheryl says. "The first stage is not just becoming aware of how we think—we have to marry that with action," she says. "When we apply the law of attraction and then we take action to be a good steward, that's when miracles start to occur in our lives."
Although many times people become frustrated that the law of attraction is not working for them right away, Cheryl says that is all part of the process. "If we had the ability to instantaneously create what we think about, we would be in pretty sorry shape on this planet," she says. "We are on this planet to grow and evolve as spiritual beings."
For example, many times people will apply the law of attraction to material things, like asking for a new car. "There's nothing wrong with that—it is the first stage of learning to harness that power in your mind," she says. "That said, as we grow and evolve over time, as our level of consciousness increases, we actually increase our ability to attract what we think about because we are better able to manage our mind."
Cheryl says when we finally begin to see the miracles working, we begin to want those same miracles for other people. "As we get that our minds are all connected, we start to take action on a global level."
