Many people don’t fully understand the law of attraction. They think it is a magical process where you wish for something and it appears. They give it a try and it doesn’t manifest and then they assume it doesn’t work. The law of attraction isn’t as simple as that but it does work. Just like the law of gravity works even though you can’t see it.
The law of attraction works based on your vibrational frequency. When you are negative or unhappy your vibrational frequency is low and you attract more of the same negativity. When you are positive, happy, and grateful your vibrational frequency is high and you attract more positivity.
What is the law of attraction?
In the book, “The Secret”, Rhonda Byrne describes “The law of attraction” and how you can use it to live the life of your dreams. The law of attraction states that like attracts like. Positive thoughts will attract more positive thoughts and negative thoughts will attract more negative thoughts. Your thoughts, emotions, and desires are what made your life as it is today. Anything that has or hasn’t happened to you is a result of your thoughts and emotions in the past. Anything in your life today is there because you manifested it in the past – whether it is something good that was caused by positive thoughts or something bad that was caused by negative thoughts. Basically, you create the circumstances of your own life. You are responsible for what you create in your life and what you attract.
How does the law of attraction work?
Everything in the universe is continuously vibrating. Each object vibrates at a particular frequency. If you look at something, it might appear to you as a solid object but it isn’t actually solid. Our brains take the waves that an object projects and turn it into a solid object. To see the waves you would need a special tool. This isn’t only true for objects. For example, sounds are just vibrations that our brains translate into sounds. Even colors are vibrations that vibrate at a particular frequency. So, basically, everything in the universe is vibrating at different frequencies.
Your thoughts emit a frequency, and they have their own vibrations. The law of attraction works when your thoughts emit a frequency that attracts the things you want.
Like Will Attract Like
The law of attraction is based on the idea that like will attract like. Similar frequencies will be drawn together. Therefore, if you want to bring something into your life, you will need to vibrate at its frequency. When two things match the same frequency, then they are magnetized together.
You control your vibrations. Therefore, you can vibrate at any frequency. Now, since the law of attraction causes similar things to attract and you control your frequency, you can use this powerful tool to bring things to you by vibrating at their frequency. However, you cannot try to bring things to you if you don’t vibrate at the right frequency. Therefore, you need to control your mind to change your frequency before you can attract whatever it is you want to attract. Once we do change our minds to vibrate at the right frequency then our physical reality will reflect this same vibration since it is our mind that controls our physical reality. To put it simply, everyone creates their own reality.
The law of attraction works all the time. Every minute of the day you are creating your reality. Each thought creates your future. Therefore, if you want to change your future, you will need to change your thoughts.
You will attract the things that you focus on
Whatever you pay attention to and focus on is what is going to come back to you. The problem is that this will happen whether you are focusing on good things or on bad things. If you focus on good positive things, then that is what you will attract. However, if you focus on bad negative things, then that is also what you will attract. The law of attraction works all the time whether you are aware of it or not. Whatever you think and feel is what will determine the energy you are sending to the Universe.
When you think about something an associated emotion responds to that thought and automatically emerges. It is sometimes easier to detect emotions than thoughts. For example, sometimes we are sad but don’t remember which thoughts made us sad. Sometimes, when we consciously try to recall which thoughts went through our mind before we started feeling this way we can suddenly get a better understanding of what caused our emotions.
Think about what you want not what you don’t want
If you don’t want something to happen then don’t think about it. The law of attraction works either way. Therefore, your mind can either manifest or sabotage your intentions. When you spend time worrying that something will happen you are focusing on that and increasing the chances that it actually happens.
If you don’t want to be in debt, then don’t focus on debt. Instead, focus on wealth and financial abundance. See how to manifest money
If you don’t want to be alone, then don’t focus on loneliness and despair. Focus on love and relationships. See how to manifest someone
Even if we don’t consider the Universe. Negative thinking will not help you reach your goals. When you think positively, you will have a clearer vision of where you want to go and what you want to achieve. It will make you more confident and capable.
Limiting beliefs are thoughts one has that you can’t do something or that it can’t be done. You need to get rid of these limiting beliefs to manifest your dreams.
What happens if we cannot control our negative thoughts?
If random negative thoughts pop into your head, try to replace them with positive affirmations and work on changing your mindset (see how to write affirmations). If these thoughts are minor, then don’t worry about them too much. Minor thoughts about unimportant things do not trigger emotional responses as do dominant thoughts (about more important issues).
Also, the law of attraction does not work instantly. Manifestation requires focus over time. Time passes between your thoughts and their manifestation. This time enables us to ensure that our desires are real and not just a whim of the moment.
Since our thoughts are essentially what control our circumstances, our goal is to completely master our mind and control and focus only on positive thoughts. This requires complete awareness of your thoughts and control of them every single day. This isn’t something that comes naturally to most people. Practicing mindfulness and meditation can help you be more aware of your thoughts and gain control over them.
Once you manage to do this, you will be a much happier person. You will no longer focus on the minor negative aspects of day-to-day life. You will focus on positive things such as your dream life, gratitude for the great things you have in life and you will be more aware of where you want to go in life and what your goals are.
Positive thoughts bring positive results
When you are feeling positive, appreciative, happy, and excited then you send out positive energy to the Universe. However, when you feel sad, angry, hate, disappointed then you send out negative energy to the Universe. The Universe responds to the energy you send out. When it is positive you will get back positive energy. However, when it is negative you will also get back negative energy. The Universe doesn’t judge your energy and decide what you need. It simply responds to your vibrations by providing more of the energy you are sending out. Therefore, you have to make sure that you are sending out the right vibrations. Your energy has to match the things you want to bring into your life.
If you focus on positive affirmative thoughts and positive feelings, your emotions will also attract events that will bring even more happiness and positivity to your life.
The law of attraction works when you focus on what you want in life, embrace positivity and erase negativity.
How to use the law of attraction
The law of attraction works when the following things happen:
- The person focuses his thoughts and desires on whatever he wants frequently and over time.
- The person attracts the desired outcome.
- The person acts with determination.
For example, if you want to manifest money, your will need to feel and think that you have money to actually get it. Once you do that, your vibrations are going to attract the same vibrations back to you. You have to continuously send out the feelings, thoughts, and energy that bring money into your life. Therefore, if you feel abundance, are appreciative of what you have, excited to receive the money you want then you attract vibrations of abundance. On the other hand, if you think you are in debt and feel sad, worried, stressed then you will be sending out negative energy that will just attract more debt. See how to manifest money
This works for anything you want to attract. If you want to attract love and happiness then you want to create vibrations of love and happiness. You can use the law of attraction to attract anything you want to bring into your life. Everything you want exists somewhere in the Universe. All you need to do is to send out energy that vibrates at the frequency and it will be yours. The Universe doesn’t see things as big or small. You get whatever you attract no matter how big or small it is. If you focus on a small amount of money or a big amount of money you will get it but you will need to vibrate at the right frequency.
Before we can raise our energy vibrations we need to be in a balanced state of mind. A balanced state of mind is achieved through appreciation and gratitude. We need to appreciate what we have before we can ask for more. See our free gratitude journal to make gratitude a part of your life.
As mentioned above, positive thoughts create positive energy. Therefore, it is very important to have a positive mindset. You can manifest anything you want through the power of positivity.
How do you ensure that your energy vibrations are at the right frequency? There are a number of ways to ensure that your energy vibrations are at the right frequency such as visualization (via journaling, a manifestation board (vision board), etc). You can find detailed step-by-step instructions on how to manifest.
What can the law of attraction provide you with?
According to the Secret law of attraction can provide you with whatever you want with no limits.
The world is a place with unlimited love, opportunities, and financial abundance. There is a supply for every demand and there are enough resources for everyone. By taking advantage of the law of attraction, you can create your own life script. There is no limit to what the law of attraction can provide you with – it can give you anything you want including health, money, love, success, relationships, or self-fulfillment.
Anyone can use the law of attraction anytime they want as long as they understand its principles and apply them correctly. Even if someone doesn’t understand the law of attraction or isn’t aware of it, it will still work. However, they might not get the results they desire since they don’t know how to use the universal law. There are many people, usually successful people, who apply the law of attraction without even being aware of it. These people often have specific traits: they are extremely positive, always look at the bright side of any situation, are grateful for what they have, and are constantly visualizing their success even before it happens. Others, need to actively remind themselves to apply the principles of manifestation and block negative thoughts when they pop into their mind.
It should be noted that the Universe has a natural resistance to wishes or desires that spring from ego or greed. It is much easier to manifest things in order to be of service or to help others.
Do I have to believe in the law of attraction?
If there is resistance to the idea that you can attract the things that you want in life then you will not be able to manifest them since your frequency will be off.
