You’ve probably heard about the magic of the Law of Attraction. That by sending out the right thoughts you will get and achieve what you want. That you can have a rich, successful, life. And you can. People using it have those things.
But what is it? How does it work? And, more importantly, how can you make the Law of Attraction work for you?
The Law of Attraction
The history of the Law of Attraction is shrouded in mystery. Some say asking when the Law of Attraction started is like asking when gravity began. It just is and always has been.
Its concepts can be found in areas such as the 19th Century New Thought Movement which birthed many great, almost biblical in stature, self-help books, like Wallace Wattle’s ‘The Science of Getting Rich’, and Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
More recently Rhonda Byrne and Jen Sincero brought the idea back into the light with their books ‘The Secret’ and ‘You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness And Start Living An Awesome Life’.
There are even a host of celebrities who live the Law of Attraction principles. People like Oprah Winfrey, Jim Carrey, Will Smith, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Denzel Washington. And you can’t argue with their success.
What Is The Law Of Attraction?
Put simply, it is about like attracting like. It is about manifesting your dreams into reality. It is the idea that by having the right positive thoughts you will attract positive things into your life. The opposite is also true. Think negatively, experience negative things.
How Does The Law Of Attraction Work?
Obviously making the Law of Attraction work for you is a little more nuanced than the simple like-attracts-like may indicate. Getting and maintaining the right frame of mind, the right energy, can be quite difficult.
Pay attention to your thoughts. Watch how quickly they can take on a negative tone. You may be surprised. Maintaining the right positive frame of mind, the right outlook and attitude, can be difficult at times.
Most of us have some sort of mental block to positivity, or thoughts of abundance. Maybe we have a sacristy mentality. We may have mental blocks so ingrained we’re not even be completely aware of them.
For the Law to work. You need to do some work on your mind and ways of thinking. How it works, and its benefits, are summed up succinctly by inspirational author Shannon L Alder:
“When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the centre of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”
The Law of Attraction sounds great. It works. But as was asked at the start, and what you probably really want to know, is how to make the Law of Attraction work for you.
There are lots of books out there about it. Reading the right books certainly helps maintain the right positive thoughts. But is reading enough?
Think about it for a second. What do we normally do when wishing to learn something new? We get someone to teach us. Someone with knowledge, experience, and a talent for getting the best out of you.
Why should learning about the Law of Attraction be any different? Having a great guide or mentor, an expert coach, will help you clear your mental blocks and put you on the path of manifesting your true potential, achieving the things you want to achieve, and ultimately living the life you’ve always wanted for yourself.
