Want to know a secret pertaining to the Law of Attraction? You can work it to your advantage while you’re asleep. The dream world is the domain of the subconscious mind. While your conscious mind is the home of the ego, which may struggle with doubts, fears and issues of control, the subconscious mind simply carries out your innermost beliefs and wishes. Think about what happens when you drive a car. Do you consciously think about putting your foot on the accelerator, turning the wheel and stepping on the brake? Perhaps you did when you first learned how to drive, but chances are, over time you automatically began to do what needed to be done without giving it much thought. That’s because your subconscious mind has been imprinted with those instructions for driving a car. It has become second nature to you.
So how do you imprint other thoughts and beliefs onto your subconscious mind? How do you train your subconscious mind to expect abundance or love or good luck since the Law of Attraction purports that we attract what we think? One way is to do so right before we go to sleep.
Have you ever read a scary book or seen a strange movie before going to sleep, only to dream about it? Or perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “I’ll sleep on it,” which means you’ll give your subconscious mind a chance to come up with a solution while you sleep. If you’ve ever read about Edgar Cayce, the medical intuitive known as the “sleeping prophet,” you’ll know that he routinely slept with his head over a stack of books and when he would awake, his subconscious mind would somehow have absorbed all of the knowledge. One of the best books about Edgar Cayce’s amazing life is Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records: The Book of Life, which describes how Cayce received psychic information, as well as how we can all attract the same information from a vast field that stores all of the world’s knowledge.
The Law of Attraction while you sleep
Edgar Cayce isn’t the only one who can absorb knowledge while he sleeps. When you’re in the final moments before sleep, your subconscious mind is particularly vulnerable to what it receives since the defenses of your conscious mind are down. At this time, if you want to put the Law of Attraction in action, you should think about what your life would be like if you had the abundance you want, the career you want, and the life you want. Imagine yourself already having those things and imagine what it would feel like to have everything you’ve ever desired. Allow yourself to fall asleep with those thoughts and you’ll be turning the task of making those things happen to your subconscious mind. How long do you sleep? Think about that six, seven or eight hours being used to help train your subconscious mind to expect and attract the life that you want.
For the next week, give it a try. As you lie in bed tonight about to drift off to sleep, visualize yourself living your ideal life. Let that be te last thought before sleep catches up to you.
At the very least, you’ll enter the dreamworld feeling good. But if you practice it consistently, you’ll literally see that dream take shape around you.
