Losier explains how you can apply this timeless principle to aspects of your life, including romance, career, personal and family relationships. Magnetizing good things to come to you.

Chapter OneDeliberate Attraction
In the next section you are going to discover how to use the Law of Attraction more deliberately. To do this, you'll learn an easy 3-step formula. In addition to learning the steps and following along with two case studies, you can participate by filling in the blank worksheets I have provided. More worksheets are available at www.LawofAttractionBook.com/worksheets.html
If you are not sure what specific area of your life you'd like to apply Deliberate Attraction to, simply choose the area that you feel the least satisfied with. It could be your relationship(s), career, health, business or your financial situation.
I recommend you finish reading the remainder of this book and then go back and do the exercises, applying them to the specific area you've chosen.
The 3-Step Formula for Deliberate Attraction
Step 1: Identify Your Desire
Sounds easy, right? Most people are not very good at knowing what they do want, however, they are very good at identifying what they don't want. In this step you'll learn why knowing what you don't like is helpful.
Step 2: Give Your Desire Attention
The Law of Attraction will give you more of what you give your attention, energy and focus to. This step will teach you how to do just that, simply by learning how to choose your words.
Step 3: Allow It Wondering why you're not manifesting your desires? The speed at which your desires come to you depends on how much you're Allowing. This is the most important step.
Identify Your Desire
Give Your Desire Attention
Step 1 - Identify Your Desire
The first step in making the Law of Attraction work for you is to be clear about what you want. The challenge, however, is that most people are not good at knowing what they DO want but they are good at identifying what they DON'T want. Knowing what you don't want is actually good news. As you'll discover in this section, knowing what you don't want will become a helpful tool for you.
What is Contrast?
Contrast, as it applies to the Law of Attraction, is anything you don't like, doesn't feel good, or causes you to be in a negative mood. The moment you identify something in your life that feels like contrast and you spend time complaining about it, talking about it, or declaring that you don't want it, you are offering a negative vibration. The Law of Attraction then responds to your negative vibration by giving you more of the same.
Is Contrast Helpful?
Yes. By observing contrast and identifying it as something you don't want, you become clearer about what you do want. Simply ask yourself "So, what do I want?" In other words, you can use the contrast to gain clarity about what you do want by answering that question.
Take your first boyfriend or girlfriend, for example. Chances are you're no longer with that person and from that relationship you have a list of things that you didn't like. This is your list of contrast. It is this list that will help you become clear about what you do want in a partner.
Observing contrast is essential because it helps you to become clearer about what you do want.
Why Is It Important to Identify Contrast?
You are already experiencing clarity whenever you observe contrast in your life.
Imagine you are riding in your car with your best friend who insists on fiddling with the radio dial. Your friend chooses a heavy metal station that you hate. You begin to feel stressed.
After five seconds of the music you say to yourself "This is my car and I'm not listening to this for one second longer." You reach over and change the dial to your favorite station, which plays adult contemporary music. Instantly, you feel happier and more relaxed.
Notice how you become clear about what you like by paying attention to what you don't like? In other words, your contrast has provided you with clarity.
To help you observe contrast briefly, say, "So, what do I want?"
How Long Is Briefly?
The key to getting what you want without getting stuck focusing on what you don't want is to briefly observe contrast.
Only you can decide how long briefly is. For some, experiencing contrast in a relationship may last for years; for others, contrast is observed for a short time. You might decide to end a relationship on the first date.
Notice that when you experience contrast around smells, sounds, or tastes, your tolerance is minimal. Think about these statements:
How long would you smell something that doesn't smell good?
How long would you listen to music that doesn't sound good?
How long would you eat something that doesn't taste good?
In these cases, you are observing contrast briefly and changing it to clarity, FAST.
There are, however, a few areas of your life where you may observe contrast far too long:
Generally, the least amount of time you spend putting your attention, energy and focus toward contrast, the better. The Clarity Through Contrast process, which you'll learn from this book, will help you with this.
Identify what makes you feel good and do more of it.
Your Goal is to Limit Contrast in All Areas of Your Life
It's OK to feel good in all areas of your life. Does this sound selfish? It's OK to be selfish when you understand that being selfish is simply an act of self-care.
Selfish = Self-Care
Are you selfish about what you eat?
Are you selfish about what you smell?
Are you selfish about what you wear?
Are you selfish about what you listen to?
I'm encouraging you to be selfish in all areas of your life, especially in your:
In these four areas people tend to have lots of negative emotions and observe them for a long time, in many cases, years.
The Clarity Through Contrast Process
The Clarity Through Contrast process will assist you in becoming clearer about your desires.
Here are some prominent areas in your life where clarity is beneficial:
Life partner relationships
Next we'll examine two case studies that illustrate how the Clarity Through Contrast Process helped generate clarity.
After teaching the Law of Attraction to thousands of students, I've collected wonderful stories about people whose lives have been changed working with this process. There's something about seeing someone else's story in print that really makes this tool come alive, so I've included two case studies that represent two common areas where people use the Law of Attraction to get more of what they want.
Janice's story will show you how the 3 steps, Identifying Your Desire, Giving it Attention, and Allowing can work in attracting an ideal relationship. Greg's story focuses on another difficult issue for many people - money.
Janice - Relationships
Janice, 34, is tired and frustrated because she continually has the wrong kind of guy showing interest in her. She complains that she attracts men who are unavailable, insensitive, and who seldom make her a priority.
Janice decided to use the Law of Attraction to attract her ideal relationship.
She began the process of Deliberate Attraction with Step One, Identify Your Desire, using the Clarity Through Contrast Worksheet. Take a look at Janice's worksheet on the next page.
In Janice's case, she was able to build a large list of contrast by recalling a number of past relationships, and what she didn't like (contrast) about those relationships.
Janice made her contrast list on Side A. She recalled three past relationships during this exercise and took a couple of days to build her list.
Janice read each item on her list and asked herself "So, what do I want?" After she wrote the answer on Side B, she struck a line through the matching contrast on Side A.
Note: In our example we have listed 9 items on Janice's list. This exercise is most effective when you add as many items as possible to your contrast list (50-100 items). The more contrast you identify, the more clarity you'll generate.

What People are saying about this
I recently read your book, Law of Attraction, and I created some desire statements for myself based on your formulas. One of them was for an ideal job. I started this in July and I would like to report that I start my new job this Monday. To make a long story short, I gained more than I ever expected in my job search and I'm very excited and happy about this especially since I was unemployed for exactly one year. So I'm writing to express my wholehearted thanks to you. I don't feel that I can thank you enough. I really appreciate the work you are doing; I've been spreading the word to everyone I know. Thanks again, Michael!
I have been a student of Law of Attraction for quite some time now; however, it is only through Michael Losier's teachings that I have finally "get it," applied it and have seen AMAZING results in such a short period of time! I have been using the contrast to clarity exercise, along with celebrating all the abundance that comes my way each and every day. Because of how positive I feel more often, I have attracted 2 radio show interviews, won the lottery, got more clients and customers into my business and feel SOOOO excited about all that is still "on its way"! Michael's style of teaching is light-hearted, fun, energetic and simple, yet very POWERFUL! Thank you, Michael!
From the moment I heard Michael on the first telelcass I knew that I was hearing something that would be life-changing for me. Through his continued teachings I am excelling and happier than ever. I've incorporated Michael's teachings in my training and the consultants in my Mary Kay business have had measurable success. What a thrill to know we have more control over our future than we might have originally thought through the applied teachings of Law of Attraction. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn so much from Michael through his teleclasses, his book Law of Attraction and his audio library. Thanks so much Michael!

If you only read one book this summer, Michael Losier's Law of Attraction should be the one! Other books have told us about the "secrets" to financial and life success. This one tells you how to apply the secrets to make them really work. He helps us understand the negative signals we may be sending out without realizing it and how to "rewrite" our thoughts into positive forces that attract the very things we want! He also helps us realize that we can't have success until we know in clear detail what it is we really want! This book is easy to read, understand and apply the concepts. The examples are well organized and well written. Teens would enjoy this book as a great place to start working on positive and successful endeavors. Most adults should be able to spot behaviors they've been doing for years that sabotage success. A life-altering excercise!!
Once you've heard any of the Attraction Laws' CDs, don't waste your money on anymore since they all are based on the same principle.
This is one of the most powerful tools I have come across in the personal development realm. Michael Losier is concise, to the point and makes it easy to follow the principles laid out. If you want to get to another level in your life whether, business, financial, relationship or other, this and 'Understanding: Train of Thought' are the books for you.
This book doesn't break new ground, but it is clearly and concisely written in positive, upbeat text. For those who believe in positive thinking, the law of attraction, but are not into earth-muffin speak, this book takes a very practical and efficient approach. Wearing Birkenstocks when reading is completely optional.
It is easy to read and inspired me to be more positive. Haven't won the lotto yet but more good things happening. It makes sense and think you will enjoy it.
Over simplified and trite
I bought this book to get a beginners idea of what the laws of attraction are and it was great for that. It will help to inspire but is not super New Age to the point where i couldn't buy into it.
If you think reading this book will suddenly make you rich, happy, etc you are wrong. It's a load of crap. Try working for success. Want to be happy? See a therapist...
I bought Losier's book with 'Nexus' by Morrison and Singh and like the insights in both books. NEXUS is a personal story about people trying to overcome negative thinking at a yoga camp so it goes well with Losier's book. 'Law of Attraction' by Michael Losier has the same title as 'The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham' by Jerry and Ester Hicks but they are two separate books. The book by the Hicks is way more metaphysical than this book. Both of them deal with the Law of Attraction. The basic idea behind that law is that 'like attracts like' - the thoughts you put out into the universe multiply and are reinforced. When you send out negative thoughts you are creating that vibration around you - same goes for positive thoughts. We all know being positive often creates better results and offers a better change of achieving our goals in life. Losier gives practical steps to help you clarify your goals and work towards them.
