When I first came across “The Secret” in my favorite bookstore a few years ago, I thought it must be a romantic fiction or a novel on magics and spells. I didn’t give it a second glance. Little did I know that “The Secret” is the cause of a renewed interest in the Law Of Attraction in this modern age.
I only caught up with the hype almost a decade later. Maybe I wasn’t ready to attract the Law Of Attraction to my life back then. Being raised in a secular environment, I would simply push the concept aside as it was hard to prove scientifically, unlike meditation.
In other words, my mind is not open to learning what is Law Of Attraction and how does it work.
What Is Law Of Attraction?
Katherine Hurst, a leading Law Of Attraction expert, in her blog simply puts Law Of Attraction as “the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on.”
It is about what we think and how we think, and how those thoughts manifest into things that we desire (or not).
That which is like unto itself is drawn – is the major premise of the Law of Attraction.
The Law Of Attraction is working for you regardless of your belief in it. If you put out positive thoughts consistently and followed by positive action, then you will get positive results.
But this is pretty general and seems like the law of cause and effect or “reap what you sow” concept in some religions.
The Law Of Attraction as we know it in the 21st century is more specific in its steps in manifesting our desires. Most LOA courses and gurus will mention these popular techniques as key to the succesful manifestation of our goals.
- Power Of Intention
- Practice Gratitude
- Take Massive Action (If you are manifesting in the physical realm)
- Live With Joy
- Break Your Limiting Belief
How the Law Of Attraction Works?
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
— Dr. Wayne Dyer
Have you ever experienced a really bad day where things seem to fall apart one after another? Or maybe stuck in a woeful state in your life wondering why you can’t get out of it? Regardless of how hard you have tried?
That’s because when things screw up, your mind naturally goes into the negative state. Anger, frustration, and blame overwhelmed your mind.
You are now vibrating at a very low level of energy.
In such a negative state, guess what you attract?
We are natural manifesters when it comes to attractive negativities in our life. Trust me, we are so good at attracting problems but when we are told that we can use a more systematic process to attract the positives, we simply look at skeptically or in disbelief.
Try flipping the process for a positive outcome. Think positive thoughts, be grateful, set your intention and go all out working for it radiating a higher than love energy vibration.
It is not a miracle. When you align your thoughts, emotion, and actions to a higher level consistently, you tend to see opportunities that you would have missed out in a negative or neutral state.
When you see possibilities instead of problems, you take action. And taking action is the first step to “miracle” to happen.
Law Of Attraction Is The Working Of Energy Vibration
Here’s a really good example of how I see new opportunities when I start to lift my energy to a higher level, after going through an energy clearance course by Christie Marie Sheldon.
I start joining community projects that gave back to society in charity works. (I used to think that it’s a waste of time). With a group of like-minded people, we gave back with our love and thoughts. When a group of people resonates at the same level of positive energy, the result is amazing.
I wasn’t thinking about what I could get in the process. But simply loving what I do because of the level of energy that I’m in. But guess what happened to me not long after?
One thing leads to another and I eventually landed a writing job with one of the world’s leading photographer, Zung, The Ninja Photographer. It wouldn’t happen if I refuse to change my thoughts and action in the first place.
And most importantly I met the love of my life, three years after recovering from a painful separation.
All this happened by only working on a part of the Law of Attraction.
No, I don’t have money falling from the sky at this moment of writing. Nor do I expect it to happen anytime soon. But I’ve discovered opportunities (that I would normally shrug aside) which lead to priceless experience in my journey to my goal.
And if you asked what my goal is, it’s making an honest living in the online world.
This is what Law Of Attraction is all about. Not money and love popping out of nowhere, but opening up realistic opportunities in your life that aligns with your goal.
The universe is always ready to give, but you must be ready to receive.
A Simple Exercise
The next time you are playing in sports or games, try changing your thoughts from “Don’t Lose” to “Let’s Win“. No, it’s not the same. The first phrase brings the images of losing to your mind, the second let you visualize yourself winning.
Guess which thought would make you perform better?
