Discover how to use the Law of Attraction and take a step closer to your ambitions and dreams.
What is the Law of Attraction?
Ask anyone you know and he or she has probably heard of the book and the movie, “The Secret,” and the Law of Attraction, as well. The Law of Attraction on a more basic level simply means 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 magnetize positive happenings into your life.
Of course the law of attraction goes a bit deeper. Life is full of circumstances both good and bad. There are always going to be occurrences in life that we would rather not go experience. However, the Law of Attraction dictates that you have the power to increase the positive and minimize the negative.
The Law of Attraction dictates that every thought you have creates your life to show up as how you think of it.
How the Law of Attraction Works
There are several steps to the Law of Attraction and how it works. It begins with a thought and ends with a result.
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 beneficial 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.
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. 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.
Set Your Intention
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. 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 fulfillment but in your now.
Be Thankful for the Intended Outcome
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.
Tips for Using the Law of Attraction Effectively
Once you understand the basic premise for using the Law of Attraction, it is easy to feel overwhelmed in the beginning. For most individuals, beginning to use the Law of Attraction is usually accompanied by a bit of skepticism. Yes, that was me, skeptical at first.
There are ways, however, to make the law of attraction work for you if you do not work against yourself.
Put Feeling Into It
One of the most important tips to remember is to put some feeling into the Law of Attraction when manifesting great stuff toward yourself. When you set your intention, it is very important to feel the feelings you would feel when you achieve the desired result.
If you are looking for that acting part or to sign that contract, imagine and feel yourself signing on the dotted line and actually performing on stage. Feel the adrenaline rush as your boss calls you in to congratulate you in front of everyone. Feel the warmth and the love of the applause and the smiles you put on everyone’s face as you take a second bow.
The Power of Visualization
The power of visualization is extremely important when it comes to the Law of Attraction. Without visualizing yourself in the desired outcome, you will not achieve the desired results. If you are desirous of making more money, visualize yourself going on a little shopping spree with your newfound finances.
If you desire a much-needed retreat, feel how good that Jacuzzi tub feels on your skin. If it is a sunny vacation, feel the sand burn the bottom of your feet and the sun baking your body, as you roll over not to burn.
Attitude is Everything
When it comes to the Law of Attraction, attitude really is everything. You must walk around as though you deserve what you have requested and that you expect its delivery to you, as well.
While this might sound a little conceited, it is a necessary component to expect the positive outcome of your request. Having a positive attitude makes the difference.
While, of course, using the Law of Attraction is not the same as walking around with rose colored glasses, but a positive mindset does magnetize positive outcomes.
Practice Makes Perfect
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.
