Yes, right now! No, wait. Read this first. We want to make sure we communicate this fundamental “law” of the universe to you, the one you must know in order to make that thing happen, bring that person to you, or deliver that opportunity to your door. It’s called the Law of GOYA, which is “get off your ass,” and it is as much a fact now as it ever was in the thousands of years since man has been a part of this universe.
Check this out…
Two days ago I found myself thinking about some really cool people that have come into my life, and those on the list whose names I can no longer remember. There was one particularly great woman I knew 19 years ago that I had stuck in my mind. We had a few girls’ nights out after meeting through a friend and had a blast. It made me sad to think about how this great girl had vanished; no search engine in the world was going to tell me where she was without a entering a name in the search box.
The next day I was helping my daughter wrap a birthday gift for a friend. Usually I insist that she make a birthday card, but she begged me to give her a pre-made card to address. I had no birthday card to give her, but I remembered that I had a beautiful wooden box under my bed that had an old collection of stationery in it from years ago. I didn’t want to, but with my daughter’s eyes pleading at me I GOT OFF MY ASS and got on my hands and knees and sifted through more dust than I care to share. Once I found the box (and cleaned it off) I removed from it many packs of stationery, greeting card boxes, a few special pens, and even some business cards that must’ve meant something to me at some point. Then I spotted a tiny notebook that at first I didn’t remember ever seeing before, but then recognized as the book I used to keep in my purse in my twenties so I’d never get caught without paper. I opened it to the first page and found an address and phone number with a name that took me only a few moments to recognize—the very woman I had been racking my brain to remember just the day before, the woman I had known for just one short month almost 20 years ago.
Why you need to get off your ass—
Visualization and the Law of GOYA go hand in hand. As you sit in front of your vision board, day after day, what else are you doing that could move you toward those dreams so perfectly illustrated on your vision board? Let’s say you have an image of a new job on your vision board. You’ve done good so far—you’ve meditated to clear your mind, you’ve done your positive affirmations to override the negative self talk, and you’ve visualized that fantastic new job. You can have faith that the universe wants to bring you that job. It will move mountains to get the information you need, as quickly as it possibly can—along the right vibrational pathway—and deliver the contact you need.
HOWEVER, it is also a reality that a piece of paper isn’t going to fall into your lap with the exact job listing you want while you are still sitting in front of the vision board. The phone isn’t going to ring with a recruiter on the other end if your resume isn’t out there because you’re still sitting in front of your vision board. You aren’t even going to run into a friend who happens to know about a job opening if you are still sitting in front of your vision board. The Law of Attraction may feel like magic, but it’s not the kind of magic with a genie in a bottle and your dream car materialized in front of you. This is your wake up call to TAKE ACTION. ANY kind of action.
What happened to me yesterday is what non-believers may call “a big coincidence,” but it’s what we LOAers know to be true. When you focus your thoughts and put the magnificent search engine of your brain to work—and GET OFF OUR ASS—the universe finds a way to deliver the result. So remember: stay focused, keep moving, and get out there so the universe can deliver.
Ps: Within just four hours of discovering her name in the dusty box under my bed, my long-lost friend and I were exchanging wonderful email messages!
