The Logical Law of Attraction

A New Class Series with Helen Racz 

How you create anything is how you create everything!

Have you noticed that you can attract success in one area of your life, like your business or parenting or making friends, and then not be able to turn your passion into the career you want or quite meet your bills no matter how much money you are earning?  How can you attract like a magnet in one area and struggle like a beginner in another? 

We attract and create every day.  We are geniuses at it!  

And, here is the big SECRET:  The Law of Attraction is LOGICAL!!

It’s not complicated. It makes perfect sense—that is why you do it naturally every day when you are not even trying! We are working with the physics of attraction ALL THE TIME.  WOW!!  What would happen if you really stepped back and examined how you create and then apply those behaviors to your problem areas? 

Curious?  Let’s Do It!!!

Join Helen this September for an honest appraisal of what you do when you are the BEST CONSCIOUS MAGNET for your desires and highest good. 

Learn And Use the Logical Law of Attraction to transform your life into a state of confidence, joy and peace.

This once-a-week class explores and utilizes the science-based logic of the universal law of attraction. Your understanding and ability to use these concepts will expand with use and through experiencing desired results in your life. We encourage you to attend one monthly series to experience the benefit of Helen’s guidance and the group support to help you manifest in your life with grace and confidence.
