What is the Law of Attraction?
Our mind is a powerful thing. That said, how we think and having a positive mindset helps us in many ways. The law of attraction is an ancient spiritual principle that says what you think and feel about something will attract you. It’s been around for centuries but has risen in popularity recently due to the book “The Secret.” The law of attraction teaches us that our thoughts are powerful; they’re energy.
General concept: All thoughts turn into things eventually. The Law of Attraction dictates that whatever can be imagined and held in the mind’s eye is achievable if you take action on a plan to get to where you want to be. It is one of life’s biggest mysteries. Very few people are fully aware of how much impact the Law of Attraction has on their day-to-day lives.
Disclaimer: The law of attraction lacks scientific evidence for its claims and is generally viewed as pseudoscience. Some things science maybe can’t measure?
Proverbs 23:7: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”. … For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
Your Thoughts Help Shape Your Destiny
Dr. Joe Dispenza – If you believe that your thoughts have something to do with your destiny, and you can’t think more significant than how you feel, or feelings have become the means of thinking, then by the very definition of emotions, you’re thinking in the past. For the most part, you’re going to keep creating the same life.
Every morning most people get out of bed on the same side of the bed, go to the toilet, get a cup of coffee, take a shower, get dressed, drive to work the same way, do the same things, and see the same people who push the same emotional buttons.
That becomes their routine, and it becomes like a program. It is how people lose their free will to a program, and there’s no unseen hand doing it to them.
Most people wait for crisis, trauma, disease, or a diagnosis. They wait for loss or tragedy to make up their minds to change. And my message is, why wait? You can learn to change in a state of pain and suffering, or you can change in a state of joy and inspiration.
How does it work?
The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract whatever we are focusing on into our lives. Whether you’re doing it consciously or unconsciously, every moment, we act as human magnets sending out our thoughts and emotions and attracting back more of what we put out to the world. Having a positive mindset can certainly make a difference.
Here are the three universal principles of the law of attraction
Positivity Attracts Positivity
When we have a positive mindset, good things happen, and when we have negative thoughts, bad things happen. It is because our thoughts are magnetic – they provide a direction or force which attracts like-energy (similar idea) towards us and repels opposite-energy (opposite view).
Nature Abhors a Vacuum
The phrase nature abhors a vacuum is attributed to Aristotle. It means every space in the heart needs to be filled with something. It suggests that by removing the negative things from your life, life can make space for more positive things to take their place.
The notion is based on that says it is impossible to have a room in your mind and life. Since something will always fill this space, it is essential to fill that space with positivity
The Present is the Key
The law focuses on the idea that you should focus your energy on finding ways to make the present moment the most enjoyable. Rather than feeling angry or unhappy, it is your choice ultimately how you think, react and what happens to you.
Most are still naive to the full potential locked deep within us. It’s easy to leave your thoughts and emotions unchecked. It sends out the same message to the universe and attracts more unwanted emotions and events into your life?
Many people who believe in this theory also believe that there’s no such thing as luck – everything happens because of our choices. What do you think?
How to Practice the Law of Attraction
Now that you realize the power of the law and have a positive mindset, you can view yourself as an artist who has a blank canvas to paint on every day. If you don’t like something about your canvas, change it.
There are a few ways to practice the law of attraction. The easiest is to visualize what you want and hold that vision in your mind until it manifests. Some habits to incorporate into your life are:
- Practicing being grateful
- It allows positive feelings every day to crowd your thoughts.
- Visualize your goals
- Imagine or visualize what you want your day to be like.
- Looking for the good in situations
- Learning how to identify negative thinking
- Be the bearer of good news and not the source of negativity.
- Use positive affirmations
- “Today is going to be a great day.”
- “I can achieve anything I set my mind to.”
- Meditation is beneficial in accessing your centers of energy that match the gut, heart, and head.
- Be kind to yourself and others.
- Self-care & Self-love. Set time for yourself
- Reflect on your progress
- It will help you stay focused on attracting what you want in life.
- Practice acceptance
- Focus on accepting things as they are. It doesn’t mean the future will suck, but you won’t be wishing for something different right now.
It only takes 2-5 minutes to do the meaningful and focused law of attraction practice at home in the morning. In fact, according to Abraham-Hicks, it only takes 17 seconds to start the manifestation.
When is a good time:
- Set off 2-5 minutes when you wake up.
- Put off 2-5 minutes during Lunch
- Try it again for 2-5 minutes before going to sleep
While this law may not be an immediate solution for all of life’s challenges, it can help you learn to cultivate a positive mindset and outlook on your life. That positive attitude may help you stay more focused and persistent towards your goals.
Being Realistic About the Law of Attraction
No matter your belief, people’s lives are always the result of their daily actions.
As you become older, you see that all habits catch up to good and bad people. Those people whose lives are on an upward trajectory, that momentum takes years to build. It’s thousands of days of compound work.
With that being said, optimistic viewpoints drive proactive behavior that, in turn, creates attitudes towards your reality. So applying the law with discipline is a recipe for success.
The law of attraction is a universal spiritual principle that says you attract what you think about. It’s not just some “new-age” concept – it works! When we’re open-minded about our desires and have a positive mindset before setting them into motion with our actions (known as affirmations), we’ll find ourselves attracting success quicker than ever imagined possible.
