“The difference between an amateur and a professional is in their habits. An amateur has amateur habits. A professional has professional habits. We can never free ourselves from habit. But we can replace bad habits with good ones.” –Steven Pressfield
I love the quote above for its clarity in helping me choose if I was going to remain an Attraction Amateur or develop my skills as an Attraction Master.
While I prefer not to think in terms of ‘bad’ or ‘good,’ I do believe that what we do habitually moves us further away from the achievement of our goal…or closer to them with velocity and ease. And, this is what creates an Attraction Master.
Consider for a moment what you do every day, or every week, or every month which moves you further away or closer to the achievement of your goals.
An ‘Attractive Ritual’ is intended to be the activating and catalyzing force behind every other attractive activity undertaken each day.
“Rituals are actions performed regularly with conscious and unconscious expectations. All rituals focus and activate our inner power. Ritual characteristics include cycles of repetitive actions performed in a specific way that do not have strong functional or logical content, but do have strong personal meaning.”*
Every professional starts their day with their own ‘attractive ritual.’ Tara R. shares her ‘attractive rituals’:
“Morning Rituals and Bedtime Rituals have changed my life. As a child, my granny Pearl encouraged me to get up early and read the Bible. As much as I tried reading that Bible daily, I hated and resented it and could not get through Genesis. Also, after having children, the idea of getting up earlier than I have to was VERY unappealing. In January of this year, I committed to read the entire Bible in a year. I also decided I would read it first thing every morning. It is now the main part of my morning ritual. Today is December 9th. I am almost completely finished. This year has been one of the best, most productive and most challenging years of my life.
My family has encountered huge obstacles, including a 15-year business relationship failing. Yet, I personally feel better, more grounded, more present, more loving and productive than ever. My husband and I are closer than we have ever been. I am grateful and excited to greet each day and to see what God is bringing into my life.”
I start my day by ensuring each one of my chakra energy centers is fully empowered to support me throughout the day. Carolyn L. Mein, D.C., describes chakras as…
“energy centers found along the mid-line of the body, extending through the torso both in the front and the back. The 1st Chakra is located around the tailbone and the 7th Chakra at the top of the head, with the rest in between. Emotions are projected and received via the energy transmitted through the chakras. Once emotions are generated or accepted into our energy field, they move through the body via the meridian system which consists of energy channels that feed all the glands, organs and systems. Emotions, like areas of the body, have specific vibrational frequencies and will accumulate in areas with the same frequency. This is why certain emotions are associated with certain areas of the body, and how the chakras are connected to the meridian system.”^
I say the name of the chakra and then envision the color associated with that chakra. When I feel the need for even more chi energy to be generated, I also use the affirmations provided by Carolyn L. Mein, D.C., in her book “Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils.”
1st Chakra – ‘Root’ located at Pubic Bone – Red
“I am one with all that is.”
2nd Chakra – ‘Creative’ located at Bladder – Orange
“I am complete within myself.”
3rd Chakra – ‘Solar Plexus’ located at Solar Plexus – Yellow
“I am conscious.”
4th Chakra – ‘Heart’ located at Heart – Green
“I am enough.”
5th Chakra – ‘Throat’ located at Throat – Blue
6th Chakra – ‘3rd Eye’ located between eyebrows – Indigo
“I know who I am.”
7th Chakra – ‘Crown’ located at top of head – Violet
“I am one with all that is.”
8th Chakra – ‘Star’ located 8” above the Crown – White
“It is my intention to return my Body, Mind and Spirit to the point of Perfection”
Next, I affirm “I AM making God smile today” (What would be your I AM statement?)
Then, I cleanse my body using a pure essential oil body wash to raise my energetic vibration, which is followed by saying prayers for those I know who are ill or who have requested assistance. Then I close my morning ritual with this statement:
“I am filled with appreciation, I am confident, I am blessed. I am in the flow of my safe, happy, healthy, purposeful, prosperous, productive, joyful, gentle, loving and attractive life!”
Throughout the day, to continue to feel and BE attractive, I will either say my morning I AM statement (above) or this one:
I touch, I feel, I breathe, I love, I stay.
In my experience, these I AM statements re-affirm and lift my energy, which makes me feel more energized, more powerful and more ‘attractive.’
Loralee H. shares her ‘attractive ritual: “My morning ritual begins with climbing out of bed and going for a run or to the gym to do weights. On mornings that I don’t have to immediately go to work, I’ll take more time getting up and do a brief meditation. I’ll often do a meditation before going to sleep, connect with my guides and Higher Self, requesting help or insight on various things that came up during the day.”
