What is The Law of Attraction & How to Use it

What is the law of attraction?

The law of attraction is an ancient spiritual principle that says what you think and feel about something will attract it to 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. This is one of life’s biggest mysteries. Very few people are fully aware of how much of an impact the Law of Attraction has on their day-to-day life.

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.

Dr. Joe Dispenza – If you believe that your thoughts have something to do with your destiny, and you can’t think greater 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, and 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. This 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 some tragedy to make up their mind to change. And my message is, why wait? You can learn to change in a state of pain and suffering, or you can learn to change in a state of joy and inspiration.

How does it work

The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. 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. Here are the three universal principles of the law of attraction

Positivity attracts positivity 

When we have positive thoughts, good things happen and when we have negative thoughts, bad things happen. This is because our thoughts are magnetic – they provide a direction or force which attracts like-energy (similar thought) towards us and repels opposite-energy (opposite thought). 

Nature Abhors a vacuum

The phrase nature abhors a vacuum is attributed to Aristotle. It means every space in nature needs to be filled with something. This suggests that by removing negative things from your life, life can make space for more positive things to take their place. It is based on the notion that it is impossible to have a completely empty space in your mind and in your life. Since something will always fill this space, it is important 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 feel, react and what happens to you.

Most are still naive to the full potential that is locked deep within us. It’s easy to leave your thoughts and emotions unchecked. This sends out the same message to the universe and attracts more unwanted emotions and events into your life? 

Most people who believe in this theory also believe that there’s no such thing as luck – everything happens because of the choices we make. What do you think?

How to practice the law of attraction

Now that you realize the power of the law, you can view yourself as an artist that every day has a blank canvas to paint. If you don’t like something about your canvas, simply 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
    • This allows positive feelings every day to crowd your thoughts. 
  • Visualize your goals
    • Imagine or visualize how you want your day to be like.
  • Optimism
    • 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” 
  • Mediation
    • Meditation is very helpful 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
    • Diet/exercise
  • Reflect on your progress
    • It will help you stay focused on your efforts to attract 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 things to be different right now. 

It only takes 2-5 minutes, at home, in the morning to do the meaningful and focused law of attraction practice. 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.
  • Set off 2-5 during Lunch
  • Set off 2-5 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 more positive outlook on your life. That positive attitude may help you stay more focused, to be persistent towards your goals. 

Being realistic about the law of attraction

The fact at the end of the day 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 people. Both good ones, and bad ones. 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. 

Concluding thoughts

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 actually works! When we’re open-minded about our desires before setting them into motion with positive actions (known as affirmations), we’ll find ourselves attracting success quicker than ever imagined possible.
