Do you know what the Law of Attraction is and how it works?
Ask most people you know and he or she has probably heard of the book and the movie, “The Secret.”
So whilst they may be aware of it, most are not really sure just what the law of attraction is.
The Law of Attraction is not something that simply comes your way; you have to put a little effort into, as well.
There are techniques that you can use in order to make the Law of Attraction work for you so that you can get what you want out of your life.
But the first step in making it work, is understanding just what the law of attraction is.
There some great books that give excellent insight into what the law of attraction is, by leading practitioners including Esther Hicks and Jack Canfield.
What the Law of Attraction is and How it Can Improve Your Life
The law of attraction on a basic level simply states that your thoughts create your life. If you think negative thoughts, you draw negative occurrences into your life and if you think positive thoughts, you will only attract positive happenings into your life.
Of course, on a deeper level, the law of attraction goes much further. Life is full of circumstances both good and bad. There are always going to be occurrences in life that we would rather not go through.
However, the law of attraction dictates that you have the power to increase the positive and minimize the negative.
How it Works
There are several steps to the law of attraction and how it works. It always begins with a thought and ends with a result.
1. Your Thoughts Create Your Life
You may not always have the ability to control life’s circumstances; however, you always have the ability to control your own thoughts.
When preparing to use the law of attraction, it is best for you to get into a meditative relaxed state of mind.
Then after you have cleared your mind and find yourself in a peaceful place mentally, you can go on to the next step.
2. Write your own thoughts!
If you really want to get the most out of the law of attraction, then you must consciously control your own thoughts on a daily basis. Sometimes you must control your thoughts on a moment-by-moment basis.
Should you find yourself going into negative or self-sabotaging thoughts, you need to take responsibility in several ways.
- Think positively
- Concentrate on all that you are grateful for
- Give yourself positive affirmations
By creating your thoughts to show up as you wish, you create your life to show up as you wish, as well.
3. Focus on What You Want
In order to properly utilize the law of attraction, you need to be clear on what you want.
It is said that the universe is the ultimate responder, what you ask for is what you will receive and what you think, you will create.
So it is imperative that you are focused and clear about your intention. If you do not know what it is that you want, then the universe cannot deliver your desire to you.
Learning and practising the art of gratitude is a great part of the law of attraction.
Being grateful means truly understanding how much we already have without asking for any more. When you are in a state of gratitude, so many more things to be grateful for come your way.
Take a look around you, there is so much to be grateful for. But you need to become aware and take notice.
When you start to understand and appreciate the simple blessings in your life, you will feel more joy. Once you feel more joy, you will manifest more joyful events in your life.
4. Set Your Intention
If you are really interested in using the Law of Attraction to its fullest potential, make sure that you begin each day with meditation.
Meditation is important as it brings your focus toward what you desire and what you expect for that day.
Once you are in a relaxed state of mind, have focus, and clear on your intended outcome, then send your intention out to the universe.
Learn how to meditate using Creative Visualization.
In order to set your intention, you must feel the experience in your mind and it must occur in the present tense. See yourself in that position, with that person, in that scenario.
Feel the excitement or the joy or whatever emotions you can conjure up; put yourself in the moment of fulfilment but in your now.
5. Be Thankful for the Intended Outcome
Creative Visualization is a powerful tool in creating the feelings behind the desire. It is not enough to just meditate on something you wish to attract into your life, visualizing brings it to life.
As you embrace the feelings of joy and happiness, you will see that more joy and happiness will enter your life. Creating visualizations makes this happen by using your emotions as triggers.
Walk around confidently knowing that your intention is on its way.
Be thankful beforehand for the intended outcome and even go as far as being excited that you cannot wait to receive what you have asked for.
The law of attraction is not a magic pill. It takes practice. The more you practice and the more you believe, the more positive results you will see.
Before you know it, the more joy you will bring into your life and the lives of others.
