How to Attract Your Dream Job
By:Laura Whitelaw

You've probably seen the Secret movie by now or at the very least you have heard about it. In short, the Secret movie is about the Law of Attraction and you can use this law to draw your perfect job into your life.

To get started, make a list on paper of all the things you don't want in a job or don't like in your current job. Then, take each one of those items on your list and ask yourself what you would like instead. So, one of your list items might be that you don't want to work with a bunch of negative, backstabbing co-workers. Write that you want to work with a team of positive upbeat people that are supportive of each other and fun to be around. Do this for each of your "don't want" statements and pretty soon, you will notice your energy level increasing and your mood shifting to one that is much more positive and joyful. Spend as much time as you can on this step and get as detailed as possible. Include all of the qualities that you want from how close you would like your job to be from your home to the type of work you want to be doing to the sort of boss you want to work for and how much money you want to make.

Next, try and get a picture of your dream job in your mind and imagine all the good feelings surrounding the scene. Repeat this visualization as often as possible and try and engage all of your senses. The more of your senses that you use in your visualization along with positive feelings, the more likely your visualization will manifest. It is also recommended that you put yourself in the scene of your visualization rather that looking at the scene as though it is on a movie screen. You need to be an active participant in your visualization.

If any doubts or negative feelings arise, just change your focus again by asking, "so what do I want?" and go back to your written list of "wants" if you need to. The more time you spend focusing on what you want and visualizing it with feeling, the faster it will come to you. You may even find that things start to change at your current place of work. This does not necessarily mean that you should abandon your job search but you may want re-evaluate your current job situation again to see if perhaps your dream job is right under your nose.

Your next step is to take inspired action. So, if you get a feeling that you should connect with an old friend that you haven't spoken to in a while - follow that instinct. You never know where a phone call might lead. You might decide one day to take a different route to work and pass a company that you were not aware of and find out that they have an opening there. The point is to be open to the possibilities of where this dream job might come from while still keeping up with your traditional job search methods.

Relax about the process and trust that everything will work out in due time. Your manifestation will be delayed if you keep wondering where it is so trust that it is on its way and enjoy your visualizations in the meantime. Many people have successfully used the law of attraction for finding their ideal career and you can too.
