Law of Attraction at Work: I’ll Have What She’s Having

When you notice people around you are having things that you would like to have, feel what it would be like to also have it. Then get the Law of Attraction to work for you, and put in your order to the Universe and say, “I’ll have what she’s having!”  Image

In the 1989 movie When Harry Met Sally, these words are delivered as a punch line in response to Meg Ryan’s characters faking an orgasm in the middle of Katz’s Delicatessen.

The entire movie is an example of the LOA at work from the beginning.

Rob Reiner had envisioned many other actors for the role now-famous female lead. His list was a veritable who’s-who in Hollywood at the time.

Meg Ryan, who was a newcomer, was not on the list, but she wanted the part, saw herself in the role, and convinced the director to give it to her.

That iconic scene was not originally in the script. Ryan and her co-star Billy Crystal were instrumental in developing the scene. If another actor had been given her part, we might never have had that magical movie moment. That scene has gone on to become one of the most memorable in movie history.

The success of the film, which launched Ryan’s career, was due largely in part to the fact that Ryan knew what she wanted and went for it.

As good as this lesson is, not everything about the scene is an accurate portrayal of the Law of Attraction. Where the movie got it wrong was that the woman delivering the “I’ll have…” line was clearly wistful, and not of the belief that she could actually have the joyful experience.

When you feel jealousy, envy, or even wistfulness over someone else’s success, achievements, or joy, you are putting separation from yourself and that thing you say you want. This is true whether what you want is a relationship, a job, a big house, etc.

This separation means your energy is not in alignment with what you are observing, so you will not attract it to you. As you feel that you do not now have something, cannot have it, or do not deserve to have it, you will actually attract not having it.

If you truly want to have what she’s having, you must be more like Meg Ryan and her character, Sally Albright. Know what you want. Be willing to feel what it feels like to have it before you actually experience it — even if it means faking it.
