The universe pays attention to your preferences. The behaviors and thoughts your perform most often is what you get as your life experience. You can’t just use the law of attraction as a one time thing, it’s a force of nature, and it is always going. If you think, speak and act from a place of lack, or of not having it yet, that’s what the universe will provide. You need to examine the existing beliefs within you, weigh them against the truth, and make a new decision about how you’re going to behave now. Choose behaviors that are congruent with the manifestation of your dreams. You need to, in a sense, establish new preferences.
