What is this crazy thing that everyone seems to be talking about when it comes to attaining success? The Law of Attraction? It sounds like a book for people struggling to find good partners. I'd heard about it in 'The Secret' and many people who are actually successful speak about it. However, for some reason I felt like it wasn't available to me. I thought that my own success could only come from sheer hard work and grinding myself to the bone. This thinking actually stopped The Law of Attraction from working for me.
Much like Marijuana, The Law of Attraction will have a different impact on everybody. I definitely think it's something that each person who plans to use it should do research into and hopefully try to get their own meaning of what it is and what it can do for them. I'm still fairly new to actually putting The Law of Attraction into use but its already reaping amazing rewards for me. If I'm in a position to make your research easier, I will happily do so. Please understand that this is my own interpretation of what it is and how I feel you can use it.
Firstly, you need to understand that even if you don't believe in the Law of Attraction, it is working at all times, in YOUR life. Some people see it as mystical, I've even heard someone refer to it as a form of Voodoo. Honestly, I wouldn't even know how to categorise it. Secondly, you should also understand that life actually wants you to win, you don't have bad luck, you're not cursed, everything is gunning in your favour, sometimes we block our own blessings.
My definition of The Law of Attraction would be this: Nature's response to our thoughts, speech and actions. Sounds simple, right? It really is.
What we think, say and do, reflects back to us, almost like a mirror. Have you noticed that when you're in a bad mood and expect the train to leave before you get to the station, it usually does? Likewise, when you're in a good mood and expect the train to be on time, it usually is? This is because of The Law of Attraction. Earlier I said that I didn't think The Law of Attraction could work for me, what do you think happened as a result of this thinking? When we THINK bad things will happen to us, SAY that they will happen to us, ACT like they will happen to us, they usually happen to us.
Now, the most important realisation you can have with The Law of Attraction is that it works both ways. If you think, say and do good things, you will notice that you also attract good things into your life. The only issue here is that it's so much easier to be negative than it is to be positive. This is even harder at the beginning of making this Law work for you. However, like everything else in life, with practice and persistence you will continue to get better and better. Have you noticed that some people are just constantly winning at life whereas others are constantly losing. They are consciously or unconsciously using The Law of Attraction.
5 Things You Can Do To Make The Law of Attraction Work For You:
Set Clear Goals
This is the very first step and also a very powerful one in putting The Law of Attraction to use. Merely defining what we want in life makes it that much easier to achieve it, combined with these other things, you're really setting yourself up for massive success. If you don't know what you want to attract, how will you even know if you attracted it. Try to be crystal clear about your desires, it also provides motivation.
This might just be the most important one because our realities usually reflect our thoughts. Keep your mind on the things that you want instead of what you don't want. Earl Nightingale goes as far as saying that 'We Become What We Think About'. Fill your mind with positivity, we are surrounded by beauty and perfection, focus on them.
So grateful, maybe even too grateful. Gratitude opens you up to receiving more. However, don't just be grateful for the sake of getting more. Instead, be genuinely grateful for what you have now. When you start to appreciate even the little things some 'unknown' force says 'Hey, thats a good place to plant those nice things, let's give them more'.
I'm sure somewhere in the world somebody thought that they could stay in bed watching Netflix thinking about becoming a millionaire and that it would happen. Very rarely does success come knocking on your door. This Law actually works on you giving something to receive something, like a transaction. Nothing beats hard work, give your all to what you do.
This might be the hardest one of all. Realise that Nature was around long before any human being alive right now and it will be around long after. That gives me the confidence to believe that It knows what It's doing. Continue to do what you need to do, focusing, working, being positive and spreading light and trust that the Laws of the Universe will keep up their side of the bargain.
As I've said, I think that The Law of Attraction is something that everyone should look into and do their own research on because it goes far beyond what I've written here. However, if you're new to the idea or new to putting it into practice then this guide is a GREAT start for reaping some rewards. My life right now is a testimony to The Law of Attraction working and these steps are things that I've done and I'm still doing everyday to achieve my goals.
Does The Law of Attraction Go Against My Religious Beliefs?
This is a slightly understandable concern seeing as you are 'working with forces', outside of yourself which automatically sounds like something Devil related.
Do I believe that The Law of Attraction goes against religious beliefs? No.
I'd actually go as far as saying that if you believe in God, then you believe in The Law of Attraction. If you believe that there is something greater happening around us rather than just mere human drama, you believe in The Law of Attraction.
It can be simplified in this small comparison:
Does God reward the Good? Yes
Does the Law of Attraction reward the Good? Yes
Does God punish the Bad? Yes
Does the Law of Attraction punish the bad? Yes
Is God always there? Yes
Is the Law of Attraction always there? Yes
For me, the Law of Attraction has actually brought me closer to God and made me realise His omnipresence. I'd say that the Law of Attraction is God and a way of defining how He treats our actions. However, it's a complex matter and these are just my beliefs.
To conclude, I'd like you to realise that there is meaning to all things, there are no coincidences. If we do good things, we attract good things. If we do bad things, we attract bad things. There is no lawyer you can hire or judge you can bribe to get out of this Law. It just is, and always will be.
