What is the Law of Attraction and How it Can Improve Your Life?
Ask anyone you know, and he or she has probably heard of the book and the movie, “The Secret,” and the term “Law of attraction.” In 2006 I was gifted a copy of “The Secret“ from a dear friend and inside she had written. Giving you this because I think you will enjoy it, not that you need it. List of goals achieved so far in life = Gazillions.
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. Where your goes your energy flows.
Of course, on a deeper level, the law of attraction goes further than this... Life is full of circumstances both uplifting and challenging. There are always going to be occurrences in life that we would rather not experience. However, the law of attraction dictates that you have the power to increase the positive and minimise the negative by formulating how you see the experience and the personal meaning you give it.
The law of attraction dictates that every thought you have creates your life to show up as how you think of it. You can literally have anything you want in life and here’s 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 in each and every situation. 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.
2. Focus on What You Want
In order to properly utilize the law of attraction, you need to be super clear on what it is that you actually 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.
3. Set Your Intention
Once you are in a relaxed state of mind, have focus, and clarity on your intended outcome, then send your intention out to vast space out with yourself, that some people call 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 fulfilment whilst also in the now.
4. 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. Then allow yourself to accept that this intended outcome is already yours. I'm again ordering something online, you think, you decide, you purchase then you wait on delivery… same thing with the law of attraction.
Before you know it, the more you practice, feel, and believe, the more joy you will bring into your life and the lives of others.
A great way to practice is to identify small daily accomplishments. And please don’t think its just as easy as you order, and it happens right away. The key to successfully utilising this is rooted in hard work and a clear vision. Good luck!
