The 7 Laws of Attraction are powerful aids in this process, but it is important that you use whatever method appeals to you the most.

As Abraham said in the book Ask And It Is Given:
"When you repeatedly return to a pure thought, maintaining it for at least 68 seconds, in a short period of time (hours in some cases or a few days in others) that thought becomes a dominant thought. And once you achieve a dominant thought you will experience matching manifestations, until you change it."
By following the other laws from the 7 laws of Attraction and being totally focused on the process, you will bring what you strongly desire into manifestation.
The key to it, is to unlock your imagination and to use it to flesh out what it is that you desire.
Ask And It Is Given is one of my favorite books, as it helped me to understand how to get from where I was, to where I wanted to be. Of course this is always on-going!
