Did you know that the Law of Attraction works perfectly every time? It's a perfect match for wherever your focus is being held—whether knowingly or unknowingly. Focus on having a positive new attitude, and watch your mood lift and your actions match your desires. Think about your lousy day as you're drifting off to sleep at night, and your day may revisit you through your dreams, or your bad experiences could persist the next day, too.
The Law of Attraction is universal and ultra-powerful. It is like a magnet that is always at work. Basically, the Law of Attraction states that 'like attracts like.' In other words, wherever your attention goes, energy flows, and you attract more of that into your life—whether it is wanted or unwanted. In order to achieve the things that are truly desired, a positive frame of mind must be present.
Many begin practicing the Law of Attraction by making it a game—focusing on, or always finding a close parking space. When those things continuously show up (and they will), move on to bigger things. Just remember to keep it positive and keep your mind open to receive the things that are being requested.
Simply recognize where you are, where you want to be, and how you want to feel once you get there. Look at the positive future and forget the present reality—especially if it is less than ideal.
Like a conductor for a symphony, you can learn to orchestrate exactly what is desired for the ultimate life experience.
It is possible to be all, have all, and live all that is desired. It is possible to create the perfect situation for you, as the stories in this book reflect—personal stories of people from all walks of life who have successfully used the Law of Attraction to overcome challenges, struggles, and adversity, and to make their dreams come true.
The stories are organized within 7 Essential Ingredients for Mastering the Law of Attraction. They are intended to provide inspiration to you for achieving your own dreams, along with practical, concrete steps you can take right away to deliberately apply the Law of Attraction in your life.
The Law of Attraction does not impose limitations or make you conform, so don't limit yourself with your thoughts and beliefs. Revel in the freedom to pursue whatever your heart desires and be conscious that the Law of Attraction is always at work. It's simply your job to make it work in your favor. Dream on and dream big!

Life Lesson #1
Let Your Passion Be Your Guide
We do not know who we are
until we see what we can do.
Letting In the Slim
Believe in yourself, and you will be unstoppable.
'Whoa,' my friend said after seeing me for the first time in four months. 'You are never going to be able to take off the weight you've put on, not with being in menopause.'
I cringed. I usually gain a few pounds each winter, but this year I was over and above. I was unhappy with myself and my body, and afraid she was right. At the same time, I was determined to get back to my 'normal' self, if possible.
For decades, I had watched family and friends struggle with their weight, going up and down like yo-yos, so I was not about to diet. I didn't know what to do—until I heard an Abraham-Hicks tape. Abraham said, 'You cannot attract thin when you are feeling fat. Your work is to Let In the Slim.'
Wow! What a fabulous idea, I thought. And, yes, I am definitely feeling fat. Right then and there I created a clear statement of what I wanted to attract. I choose to be the perfect weight and shape for my body by the end of three months. I now release any and all excess weight and Let In the Slim.
I repeat this intention before each meal and yoga practice. I rehearse feeling slim, walking slim, standing slim, and dressing to perfection in clothes that make me feel beautiful. I feel what it is like to be my perfect weight and shape.
I wake up at 5:30 am and go for a two-and-one-half-mile walk in Central Park. Each day, I walk a bit longer, enjoying the smell of magnolia, apple, and cherry trees. I bask in the intense colors and scents, the raucous birdsong, and the changing reflection of light dappling merrily on the lakes and reservoir—the burgeoning sights and sounds of an abundant spring. I feel abundant here, as if I am in the center of a Monet painting, marveling at the explosion of green and blue, of frosted pink, and the myriad shades of purple and yellow all blending together, yet separate and distinct. I feel joyful, full of life and love.
I revel in the uninhibited, joyous antics of children—hearing their laughter, watching their intense focus on what is happening in the moment, while participating in their Letting In. I feel focused and abundant and happy on these walks. I feel good. I am Letting In the Slim. My fear is fading, and so are the feelings of fat.
Subtle changes are taking place in my body and in my eating habits. I eat healthily, but I also continue to enjoy culinary pleasures like wine and gelato, albeit smaller portions, savoring every mouthful. I play with a suggestion from one of the British World War II ministries to the public on rationing: 'Butter your bread thinly and eat butter side down to the tongue for more flavor.' Eureka! It works with everything I eat. And, of course, I reiterate before and after each meal that I am Letting In the Slim.
I want to have fun exercising so I create a ten-minute wake-up routine: abdominal exercises on the exercise ball, amped up with dance music. It is a blast and gets me feeling even better about myself and my trimmer body. I am now slimmer, trimmer, and healthier—I feel good. I am cooking!
Last week, I had occasion to wear an outfit I could not get into months earlier; it is now loose, and I look fabulous in it. On the day I wore it, a good-looking Frenchman unabashedly flirted with me, telling me I was very beautiful, and I Let It In.
Oh, yes, but there is more! There is so much more. Not only am I now Letting In the Slim, I am also Letting In more success and more money, new friends, and mentors to ease my way. An experiment that started as a fun way to lose weight has become a lifestyle, a pathway to joy and self-love as I allow myself to thrive and deliberately create the life I love. Letting In the Slim has opened the door to Letting In the Love.
Take a moment to think about who you are and who you wish to become. See yourself one year from today. If you could have anything you want and no possible way to fail, what would it be? What do you most want for yourself? When you look back on this period of your life, what do you want to remember? What experiences do you wish to have? What accomplishments?
Begin by getting a special journal or notebook, one that is beautiful and feels good to you. This will be your Prosperity Journal, which you will use as you read each story and go through the exercises in this book.

Well, what this awesome foursome cooked up is a beautiful book. Filled in the traditional style of the Chicken Soup series with poignant stories, and interlaced with just the right dose of "how to" guidance for allowing the Law of Abundance to work in one's life. The combination makes for delightful, compassionate wisdom for the soul.
One of the beauties of books is the very different styles that authors can, and do, use to delight our senses and touch our soul. Some books stretch our thinking by being "in our face" while others impart great wisdom in a more graceful manner. Some books are designed to be read once straight through, while others become more of a life companion which we turn to often for new insights based on what we are experiencing in our life, at a given moment. This book is definitely in the category of a life companion whose wisdom is delivered in a truly graceful manner.
As with all books in the Chicken Soup series, much of the magic is in the choice of stories utilized to emphasize the theme. Kudos to the foursome for a great selection of stories. Two of my initial favorites illustrate the power of the book. Sonia Choquette's story on visiting France is so, so well written -- in a delightful, humorous way -- that her teaching point leaves you with a smile.Read more ›
I am application minded, too much explanation or history tunes me out. I am finding, that the beautiful balance of insight,FANTASTIC quotes (that are like pictures with thousands of words), and real life stories, are serving as guide posts for my life. Thank you Jeanna, Eva, Jack and Mark, for your thoughtful insight in this Masterpeace!
