What is The Law of Attraction?
“See the things that you want as already yours. Know that they will come to you at need. Then let them come. Don’t fret and worry about them. Don’t think about your lack of them. Think of them as yours, as belonging to you, as already in your possession.”– Robert Collier
Simply put, The Law of Attraction, which is part of something called the New Thought philosophy, states that if you have a positive or negative thought, then a positive or negative experience will come into your life because of it.
For example, if you always think about getting rich, your chances of that happening increase significantly. On the other hand, if you believe you’re never going to become wealthy, then it’s likely that’s what will happen.
The Law of Attraction is about the effects of thinking positively or negatively (positive vs. negative thinking). In other words, if you send out positive thoughts, you’ll get positive results. If you put out negative thoughts, then expect to get adverse outcomes.
The Law of Manifestation: To manifest your desires and dreams, you must consciously feed your mind with positive thoughts.
The Law of Magnetism: Like a magnet, positive or negative Universal energy frequencies you put out will come right back to you.
The Law of Pure Desire (or Unwavering Desire): The Law of Attraction will only work the way it’s supposed to if you have a strong desire for what you want in life.
The Law of Paradoxical Intent (or Delicate Balance): The best way to get what you want is by knowing that you don’t need it to be happy.
The Law of Harmony (or Synchronization): You can open up your highest manifesting power when you harmoniously align yourself with the Universe.
The Law of Right Action (or Conscientious Action): Keep your Universal energy frequency tuned to that of honor and dignity. Doing so will always work in your favor, although you might not see it right away.
The Law of Expanding Influence (or Universal Influence): A new seed is planted in your destiny’s garden by every thought you have and by each of your deeds.
The Law of Attraction philosophy centers itself around spirituality.
Many people believe that spirituality has a connection to various health benefits, including lower depression, reduced stress, and better overall health and well-being. They believe this philosophy aligns the energy of the Universe with our wishes because we all consist of energy that operates at different frequencies.
The idea is to have positive thoughts so that the frequency you are using lines up best with Universal energy. This practice works best if you are grateful for the things you already have.
But what you attract to yourself depends on how and where you focus your attention. If you want the Law of Attraction to work, you must believe that something is already yours or soon will be.
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”– Muhammad Ali
While having a positive attitude (giving out positive energy) is usually a good thing, you must combine this with a realistic, proactive approach to achieve what you want. In other words, positive actions must take place to go along with positive thoughts to get the results you want.
Even though The Law of Attraction has many proponents and adherents, it relies on anecdotal experiences, not on scientifically-proven, empirical evidence. Thus, it is based primarily on belief. But so are lots of other things in life, including the very existence of God. In any case, as long as you approach using The Law of Attraction with a good understanding of its 7 Laws, you should be able to achieve good results in your life.
