The Meaning of the Law of Attraction
If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably heard of this amazing term called the “Law of Attraction”. Maybe you’ve read about it in a book, movie or podcast and you’ve been told that mastering this concept can change your entire life for the better.
But what exactly is it and how does the Law of Attraction work? Can you actually use it to manifest your desires in reality?
Perhaps you’ve heard of sayings like “thoughts become things”, or that “like attracts like”? A simple explanation of the Law of Attraction is that you have the power to attract into your life whatever thoughts that you focus on. Your mind controls what you receive in reality.
This means that if you think of positive thoughts for the day, you will eventually go on to have an amazing. But if you decided that you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, then you may find that the rest of the day seems under the weather. The truth is that your thoughts will influence the types of opportunities, people and objects that are present in your life.
For people who are not aware of this, they may be trapped in the cycle of limiting thoughts and thus always find it hard to achieve success. But for those who have gained an awareness of this powerful principle, they can consciously CONTROL and create reality around them.
As you’ll see in the rest of this guide, applying the law of attraction isn’t simply about sitting on the couch and “hoping” that things will go your way. There is a science to it involving various techniques that you can use to fully take control of your thoughts and translate them into action.
This article will explain the key concepts behind understanding the Law of Attraction and how you can apply its principles to start manifesting your thoughts into things.
What Is The Law of Attraction?
Law of Attraction is a law of the Universe which dictates that similar energies will always attract based on its universal vibration. When applied in the context of our individual lives, the Law of Attraction grants us the ability to attract the thoughts that we focus on and eventually manifest them into reality.
As one of the most popular Universal Laws, the Law of Attraction is a fundamental law of nature – it’s always working. It applies to everyone regardless of your race, language, belief and religion.
Just like the law of gravity – every time you pick something up and release it you know for certain it will fall back down to the earth due to gravitational forces.
In a similar way the Law of Attraction governs the way we live, whether or not we “believe” in it. The law dictates that whatever we focus our thoughts on is what we will attract into our lives.
“Everything great was created twice. First in the mind, and then in reality.”Robin Sharma
People who consciously practice the Law of Attraction hold the believe that all thoughts are sacred. The thoughts that we allow to persist in our minds, good or bad, will eventually manifest into our reality.
Here’s how it works.
Everything in the Universe is made up of vibrations. From the stationary table to the individual persons, we are all made up of particles that are vibrating at different frequencies at different points in time.
Our internal thoughts affect our vibration which in turn attract similar energies into our lives. The more focus we place on a particular dominating thought, the easier it is to manifest into its physical equivalent.
As many Law of Attraction teachers often caution, this powerful law can work both ways.
If we focus on negativity and our lack of success, then that’s precisely what we will attract into our lives. However if we are able to get past the limiting thoughts and attitudes, and shift our mindsets to dominating thoughts of success and abundance, then we start to attract the people, things and opportunities needed for us to get there.
This phenomenon is happening real time, even as you read these words. Our subconscious mind is constantly manifesting the ideas that we hold in our mind even if we are not aware of it.
Control the thoughts in your mind and you will control your reality!
Law of Attraction Origins
The Law of Attraction is deeply rooted into New Thought philosophy which is largely believed to have been derived from the works of Phineas Quimby in the 19th century.
Since then, many prominent figures have been strong advocates for the law as a means of self-development and attaining success in life. These include:
- Ronda Byrne – Author of “The Secret”
- Esther Hicks – Author of numerous LOA books like “Ask & It Is Given”
- Napoleon Hill – Author of “Think & Grow Rich”
- Norman Vincent Peale – The Power of Positive Thinking
- Louise Hay
Even numerous famous personalities such as Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, Jim Carrey and Arnold Schwarzenegger have openly credited much of their success to being able to apply the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction And the Bible
The principles of the Law of Attraction have also been centered in the teaching of various religions.
“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
This bible verse in Matthew 7:7 as well as other verses and bible teachings reflect similar principles that reinforce the workings of the Law of Attraction and the immense power that it has to change our lives.
Even a popular quote from Buddha states that “All we are is a result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” Thought is the basis of the Law of Attraction which dictates the final end result we achieve.
Understanding the Law of Attraction
Is it as simple as just thinking something into existence? If that’s the case why am I not rich yet?
Now that you have grasped the key concept of what the Law of Attraction is about, let’s dive deeper into understanding the Law of Attraction and the way it works.
Many of us live day to day without truly understanding the supreme potential that lives within us. We accept the limiting thoughts that society, our upbringing and social pressures have placed upon us – so much so that we subconsciously believe these limiting thoughts to be real.
By allowing this to continue, our vibration is affected and we attract events, circumstances and people into our lives that serve to confirm this initial disposition that we have adopted.
This keeps us trapped in a cycle of limiting thoughts which ultimately prevent us from achieving our greatest dreams and passions. Most of the time we may not even be aware of it!
But here’s the AMAZING part…
When we become aware and embrace the Law of Attraction, the power is entirely transferred into our very hands! Once you have understood this powerful principle, your life will begin to change for the better.
Those dreams that we never thought we could achieve? They are now made possible.
Because we now that if we believe in the eventuality of our dreams, then so too will we attract the means, opportunities and energies needed to manifest absolutely anything that we desire.
All it takes is the believe in a single dominating thought, and and the Law of Attraction will see to it that the Universe bends in our favor.
Whether or not we consciously apply it, this tremendously powerful law is always at work. We are always manifesting the thoughts in our minds – so start thinking positive!
Is The Law of Attraction Real?
The truth is, whether or not you believe in its existence – the mental disposition that you choose to adopt will influence the outcomes in your life. This is an undeniable fact.
The Law of Attraction is very much real and is happening to us right at this very moment. It is a powerful philosophy that many who wish to create huge positive change in their lives have chosen to adopt.
If you’re tired of being defined by your circumstance and ready to finally achieve the success that you deserve, I urge you to embark on this journey as well.
Here’s why some people might find it hard to accept the Law of Attraction.
Understanding how the Law of Attraction works comes also with the big realization that you are responsible for where you are right now in life. No matter how difficult it is to accept this fact, all of your past thoughts and decisions are responsible for where you are today. You have indirectly manifested your current reality.
But here’s the good news. It also means that you have absolute power to change your life in any way you see fit! There is always hope, because the power to cast aside the chains of your past fears, negativity, anxiety or depressing thoughts is already in your hands.
Once you start to become more adept in the ways of your mind, you will start to realize the secret to achieving success is simply a change in perspective. You are the master of your own fate.
The Science Behind the Law of Attraction
Our bodies are made of molecular structures that are constantly vibrating. The sum of all these energies form what we call our “vibration” that we are in.
Our vibration is controlled by the thoughts that we think in our conscious mind and allow to pass on to the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind dictates how we act that allows us to manifest our ideas, whilst our vibration dictates what we attract into our lives.
The powerful combination of both internal and external forces allows us to manifest the thoughts that we want. This is what it means to “raise your vibration“. It means influencing our current state of thought, emotions and feeling to bring about positive output.
Steps To Start Applying The Law of Attraction For Abundance
1. Identify Your Limiting Thoughts and Eliminate Them
Your limiting thoughts (or success blockers) are mental paradigms that have been gathered through the years of your life. Oftentimes they are deeply rooted and hard to spot, but they have played huge impact in shaping our lives to what it is today.
In order to attain success, we don’t just need to shift our thoughts – we need to change our WHOLE mental paradigm. That’s why I always recommend beginners who wish to practice the Law of Attraction this quiz to identify their deep-seated negative thoughts and remove them before continuing.
2. Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind
Successful application of the Law of Attraction also involves activation of the subconscious mind which is known to be the more powerful of the two. This is why not all thoughts are immediately translated into things – for instance simply sitting on the coach and trying to focus on getting rich quick doesn’t necessarily raise your vibration or invoke the forces of the Universe to work in your favor.
In order for any idea to be translated into its physical equivalent, it must first be passed on to the subconscious mind. The more you think, feel and believe a particular thought or idea, the easier it is to pass into the subconscious.
There are several techniques for reprogramming your subconscious mind with positive successful thoughts. With the principle of autosuggestion being the core concept for influencing one’s subconscious mind to take on new ideas.
3. Apply Positive Affirmations To Your Life
Positive affirmations are one of the most powerful techniques to apply the Law of Attraction. In fact, in most of the Law of Attraction programs that I’ve encountered, they always involve some form of positive affirmation rituals.
The reason why affirmations work so effectively is because each time you say an affirmation you are making a declaration of who you are and what you want the world to be.
Constant repetition of powerful affirmations can shift your mental paradigm and transform your entire outlook to life – a crucial step to creating the life that you desire.
The trick is to think, feel and believe each time you repeat the affirmation. And visualize yourself already in possession of the dream.
You’ll want to learn how to craft the most effective affirmations that can transform your life for good as well as the best ways to apply them in your life.
4. Practice Visualization Techniques (Synthetic Experience)
Before any manifestation can take place, it is necessary for you to think, feel and believe that your thought will happen. Visualization is tool that paints a mental image of what you are trying to achieve.
The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference of whether you have already achieved a goal or not, which is why you must carry your mindset in a way like you are already in possession of the dream.
If your goal is to manifest money with the Law of Attraction, adopt a rich mindset and start carrying yourself like you’re already worth a million dollars. This paradigm shift is a necessary catalyst for the Law of Attraction to work.
You can even create powerful vision boards that will keep you on track and maximize your visualization sessions!
