Universal Law #5: Law of Inspired Action - Ashley Brothers


Step into the dynamic realm of the Law of Inspired Action, a powerful force that propels us beyond mere thoughts, wishes, dreams, and intentions into the realm of purposeful manifestation. While the Law of Attraction emphasizes the power of thoughts and beliefs, the Law of Inspired Action reminds us that manifestation often involves more than just positive thinking (aka passive attraction) when striving for larger goals. Although aligning our thoughts and emotions with our goals is a crucial first step, it’s not enough. We can’t stop there. True transformation emerges when we take intentional actions that make our dreams a reality.

In other words, it’s not enough to just hope, wish, pray, or daydream about something we want. We must actually DO something to make it happen. You don’t get a toned body by sitting on a couch. You have to change your diet and lift weights at the gym on a regular basis. Athletes win gold medals through visualizing their success AND countless hours of training. You don’t just become a doctor. You take extensive training and practice several hours before becoming licensed. People get a paycheck by going to work. Food gets into your body by buying, cooking, and eating it.

Although many small things can be manifested with very little effort, our bigger goals and dreams often require our active participation. This isn’t always true, but most times it is. Many people don’t have the lives they want because they weren’t willing to do what it took to have that life. They weren’t willing to put in the effort that is often uncomfortable. They complained about the unfairness of life and acted like victims rather than the heroes of their life stories. They were focused on problems and excuses rather than solutions and opportunities.

When people are passive about their lives, they are at the mercy of their environment and the people in it. If you do not take action to control your life, you will spend your life reacting to other people who control it for you. The Law of Inspired Action requires us to identify what we want, identify what we have to start and stop doing to make it happen, make a plan, and then take action.

As we embark on an exploration of the Law of Inspired Action, we delve into the significance of purpose-driven endeavors, mindful decision-making, and the synchronicities that arise when we actively participate in the co-creation of our reality. When the universe sees that we are serious about what we want . . . serious enough to do something about it. . . . it (the Universe) will step in to help us make our dreams come true. Join us on a journey of empowerment and self-discovery, discovering the transformative potential that unfolds when inspiration meets intentional, decisive action.

Positive Effects of the Law of Inspired Action:

  • Transformative Progress: One of the key positive effects of the Law of Inspired Action is transformative progress. When you take intentional and purposeful steps toward your goals, you initiate a process of positive change. This proactive approach enables you to make tangible strides toward manifesting your desires. It may not be giant steps such as going from 0-100 overnight. It may be a million tiny steps that create an entire path. The point is to consistently do something every day and never give up until the goal is achieved. This is the Law of Accumulation where enough energy or actions have created enough momentum that you are propelled into what you want rather than remaining stagnant or hitting wall after wall.

  • Increased Confidence and Empowerment: Engaging in inspired action boosts your confidence and sense of empowerment. As you witness your efforts yielding results, you develop a deeper belief in your ability to create change in your life. This increased self-assurance becomes a powerful driving force for further action. Confidence isn’t automatic. It comes from repetition and doing something enough times that it becomes effortless.

  • Alignment with Manifestation Energy: Inspired action aligns your energy with the energy of manifestation. It signals to the universe that you are actively participating in the creation of your reality. By aligning your actions with your desires, you create a harmonious synergy that accelerates the manifestation process. The Universe favors the bold, rather than the meek and the timid. It helps those who help themselves. So the more you do to achieve your success, the more the universe will support and encourage you through blessings, miracles, and synchronicities.

Negative Effects of Ignoring the Law of Inspired Action:

  • Stagnation and Inaction: Ignoring the Law of Inspired Action may result in stagnation and inaction. If you rely solely on positive thoughts and emotions without translating them into purposeful steps, your goals may remain unfulfilled. Inaction can create a disconnect between your desires and the reality you wish to manifest. After all, it is said that wishes are just goals with no power in them.

  • Missed Opportunities: Failure to take inspired action may lead to missed opportunities. The universe often responds to proactive steps by presenting opportunities that align with your goals. When you passively wait for things to happen, you may overlook chances that could have propelled you toward your desired outcomes.

  • Lack of Progress and Frustration: Without inspired action, progress toward your goals may be slow or nonexistent. This lack of progress can lead to frustration and a sense of stagnation. It's essential to recognize that manifestation involves a dynamic interplay between thoughts, actions, and the energy you put forth.

How to Use the Law of Inspired Action to Manifest a Better Life:

  • Clarify Your Goals: Begin by clearly defining your goals. Take the time to articulate what you want to achieve in different areas of your life, whether it's related to your career, relationships, health, or personal development. Clarity is the foundation for inspired action. Write down your goals on a piece of paper with a clear end date. Review your goals every day, write 10-20 things you could do to make them happen, and then take the best course of action.

  • Break Down Goals into Actionable Steps: Break down your larger goals into smaller, actionable steps. Create a roadmap that outlines the specific actions you need to take to move closer to your objectives. Breaking down goals into manageable steps makes the path to manifestation more achievable.

  • Listen to Your Intuition: Your intuition is a powerful guide when it comes to inspired action. Pay attention to your inner nudges and gut feelings. These intuitive prompts often lead you toward actions that are aligned with your goals and contribute to the manifestation process. Review your goals every morning and take 10 minutes to breathe and meditate. Ask your higher self for a definite lead in achieving those goals and ask if there is anything you need to do to make them happen.

  • Take Consistent Action: Consistency is key to the Law of Inspired Action. Take intentional steps regularly, even if they are small. Consistent action builds momentum and creates a continuous flow of energy toward your goals.

  • Embrace Learning and Adaptability: Approach challenges with a mindset of learning and adaptability. Inspired action may involve trying new approaches and adjusting your strategies based on feedback and results. Embrace the learning process as an integral part of the journey.

  • Visualize the End Result: While taking inspired action, regularly visualize the end result of your efforts. Visualization reinforces the connection between your actions and the outcomes you desire. It helps to maintain focus and motivation throughout the journey.

  • Stay Open to Opportunities: Keep an open mind and stay receptive to opportunities that may arise. The Law of Inspired Action often brings unexpected opportunities that align with your goals. Be willing to explore new possibilities and avenues for growth.

  • Celebrate Achievements Along the Way: Celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. Acknowledge and appreciate the progress you make along the way. Positive reinforcement enhances your confidence and encourages further inspired action.


The Law of Inspired Action serves as a powerful catalyst for manifesting a better life. By aligning your thoughts with purposeful and intentional steps, you actively participate in the creation of your reality. Clarify your goals, break them down into actionable steps, and embrace the transformative power of consistent, inspired action. As you navigate the intricate dance of manifestation, you'll find yourself on a dynamic and fulfilling journey toward the life you envision.
