In simple terms, the Law of Attraction refers to the ability to attract anything in life by focussing on it. According to the LOA theory, likes attract likes. Yes, you heard it right. Unlike the theory of physics which states that opposites attract, here, in the case of Law of attraction, likes attract.
What it means is that if you think positive and send positive energies/vibrations into the universe, positive things will come into your life. Similarly, if you keep thinking negative, negativity will manifest into your life.
What Is the Law of Attraction?
The law of attraction is known by many other names as well. Some people like to call it manifestation, while others call it the abundance attraction. People also refer to it as the power of the subconscious mind and mind power. Whatever may be the name, the basic premise of LOA is quite straight forward. That is “Your thoughts turn Into realities”.
From the time immemorial, the man believed that the human subconscious mind is a very powerful tool and deep inside it holds the mysteries and the secret of the universe and everything in it.
Although the exact history of the origin of the law of attraction theory isn’t known people believe that the man knew about the miraculous powers of the subconscious mind and thought vibrations thousands of years ago.
In the 19th century, the Law of Attraction was presented to the public as an integral part of the New Thought Philosophy.
It looks like the term Law of Attraction itself was used for the very first time in 1877 in a book written by the Russian occultist Helena Blavatsky. But the term was made popular by Prentice Mulford who played a major role in the development of New Thought thinking.
How Does the Law of Attraction Work?
For the sake of this example let’s consider your thought as a small unit of energy. When you put more energy and attention on thinking the same thought, that ball of energy starts to grow and turns into an emotion. The believers of Law of Attraction like to call the “Emotion” as the energy in motion. And when you put this emotional energy out, the same energy will be attracted into your life.
Now the question we need to ask ourselves is ‘how does this thought get into our mind in the first place’. It may be due to our upbringing, or because of the environment we live in. Whatever may be the case, it is we who intentionally place a particular thought inside our minds.
When we start to understand how the law of attraction works, we start to realize that everything starts with that seed of thought.
We need to understand that the LOA is working all the time. It is like the other universal laws. Now some smart people object to the idea of the law of attraction, saying that we can’t prove any of it. But what we need to remember is that ‘just because we don’t understand something doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist’.
The law of attraction says, what you have now is just a version of your past. Everything you have in your life right now came from something from your past. It is all the result of vibrations you put out in the past. Similarly, whatever energy vibrations you put out now, will bring the same things in your life, in the future.
Now let’s see how to use the law of attraction properly to attract maximum possible abundance into our lives.
How To Use The Law Of Attraction?
There is no hard and fast rule to approach this theory of abundance attraction. But almost all the approaches involve the following steps.
We need to know exactly what we want
When we want to attract something in our lives, we need to know exactly what we want. A vague idea or thought may not be enough. For example, just saying ‘I want money’ or ‘ I want a better life’ won’t be enough.
We need to specify ‘how much money we need’. or ‘how exactly we expect the universal energy to better our lives’. We can also put a thought out in the universe, specifying ‘how we feel when our lives get better’.
Stay away from negative people
Yes. Don’t share your plans and ideas with people who always discourage you. Don’t even share your ‘law of attraction’ ideas with a person who doesn’t believe in the same and who always tells you to be realistic and not believe in miracles of universal positive energies.
Visualize clearly what is in your mind
Now it’s time to visualize clearly what is in your mind. It should be so clear that you should be able to taste it.
Just visualize your self to be experiencing the cold winter on a hot summer day. Your visualization should be so powerful that you should feel the chill in your spines or the numbness in your feet, because of the cold.
Don’t worry if you can’t visualize so strongly on the first attempt. It slowly becomes a habit as you practice regularly. What we mean to say is that you need to put all your emotions behind that thought which you want to manifest.
Share It With Someone! or Not?
This is a little controversial. Many experts in the law of attraction believe that we need to share our law of attraction experiments with someone whom we trust. We need to put it out in the universe verbally.
But other experts believe that it isn’t necessary to share our expectations and experiments with anyone else.
Whatever may be the case, stay away from dis-believers. If you feel like sharing your abundance manifestation experiments with someone, share it with your loved ones. Not with a naysayer.
Look for the Signs from The Universe
We need to look for the signs from the universe which indicate that the things we asked are coming to us. Signs from the universe will help us on our path. If you miss them the first or the second time, fear not. These signs keep repeating themselves and they become louder gradually until you notice them.
Believe it is possible
This is the most important step of all.
You should always believe that it is possible. Not even an element of doubt should be there. Even if we perform all the above steps properly, if we have even a small doubt about the power of Law of attraction, things won’t work out.
Remember that the universe just keeps responding to what you put out there. If you put disbelief out you will get disbelief and failure back into your life. That’s just how this whole abundance manifestation thing works.
Another way to look at it is as follows.
Ask for Something That Is Practical
Yes. What I mean by that is, ask for something that you believe is practically possible. For example, if you start asking the universe to make you the president of the United States or the CEO of Microsoft, it may not be possible, because deep inside, you yourself have disbeliefs. You know that it isn’t practical.
Similarly, don’t ask the universe to manifest millions of dollars into your bank account by the end of this week. That ain’t gonna happen, because you don’t believe it. Instead, ask the universe to make you a millionaire in 12 months.
You Need to Put In Your Effort
I see a lot of law of attraction students and enthusiasts complaining that the abundance manifestation thing doesn’t work. The problem most of us have is that we are not ready to put in the required effort to get the things we desire.
Only asking the universe and visualizing about it, isn’t enough. We need to work hard towards our goal. If we ask for a million dollars in the next 12 months but don’t work towards it, it isn’t going to happen.
Eliminate Negativity from Your Life
Stop thinking negative about people and things, overall. Even the slightest negativity in other aspects of your life can hinder your progress in the LOA efforts you make.
Finding it hard to digest all the things mentioned above? You can use one of the following manifestation programs to learn the basics of the law of attraction and abundance manifestation.
Law of Attraction Training Programs
There are a lot of books and training programs out there that teach the law of attraction for beginners. The ones I have found useful are the following two.
Manifestation Miracle Program
Manifestation Miracle is a law of attraction training program that claims to teach you how to attract abundance in life using your mind power combined with the power of the universe.
The creators of this system claim that you can attract almost anything into your life using the techniques that have been given in this training program.
15 Minute Manifestation Program
The 15 minute manifestation system is a training program that is created to reprogram your brain and the subconscious mind in a certain way to enable its full potential to manifest things. This method uses audio tracks called ‘’Theta Frequency Tracks” to achieve these desired results.
