Both Mind maps and the principles of Law of Attraction are not a new concept. Mind mapping is a useful tool to assist you in brainstorming, getting things done, or simply to refocus your mind on the tasks ahead. Law of Attraction is the philosophy of manifesting desires according to one’s will. They seemingly have nothing in common, or do they? Mind maps can be a very useful tool to use the principles of Law of Attraction to your advantage. Allow me to show you how.
How to Use A Mind Map For Law Of Attraction
One of the best things about mind mapping is that you really do not need any outlandish tools or a lot of time. However, if you prefer to do them online, there are free programs available to assist you in creating them, like Mindmup.com. But any pen and a piece of paper and a few minutes of uninterrupted time will do just fine.
Before you start this exercise, I highly recommend that you are in a positive state of mind. If you are currently not in that frame of mind, I suggest that you first find a way to get there, by using one or more techniques a followed:
- partaking in an activity that brings you joy
- watching ASMR videos – such as the one below:
Once you have moved onto a more positive state, you can proceed with the steps below:
5 Steps For Using A Mind Map for Law of Attraction
Start with being clear about what you are wanting to manifest. Is it a relationship, money, a business venture? The more detailed you can be about your desire, the better at this point. The important thing is here that you pick one single item on your list of desires. That can be simple or complex as you choose it to be.
Try to decern the emotional state that achieving this desire would bring you. For example, if you are desiring money, the emotional state you are looking for could be security. If you want to become a leader in your business, the emotional state that you may be looking for could be pride or a sense of accomplishment. Take your time to think about this – you may want to daydream a minute about how it would feel like to accomplish your goal.
Write the word for the emotional state that you are looking for in the center of your paper, or put it in the center of the mind map application. Make sure that you have plenty of space to write around this central word for the next step
Write around that central word about 8 to 15 emotional states that support this central feeling state that you are looking for. In my example for the emotional state of security, I wrote
Don’t censor yourself. Each emotional state has a completely different meaning for each person. Allow the words to flow naturally and without holding back. These emotional states should be positive, release anything negative that comes up during this exercise.
Your central emotional state word and the support words are now your focus of attention. Over the next 30 days, acknowledge and actively nurture any moment you feel these positive emotional states. Cherish them, which in turn will activate Law of Attraction, bringing you more of these positive states that you now make a point of focus.
- always start out from a positive emotional state if you are working on such a deliberate creation process. If you are feeling less positive, be more general with your focus, such as looking for something to be grateful for, or use mindfulness to be present without emotional attachment
- if your list of emotions feels a little overwhelming, pick the emotion that has the least baggage for you – in the example above, the easiest emotion to conjure for me is creativity.
Manifestations happen on an emotional level. Often what we are desiring is only our desire due to the fact that we assume we will receive an emotional reward from achieving that item or thing. Focusing on the emotional state, that you have previously tied to a physical state, will allow you to manifest your desire while keeping you in an aligned, positive state of mind.
