Setting the Record Straight on Law of Attraction Misconceptions

Apr 9, 2008
The law of attraction simply states that Like Attracts Like. Events happen because of the energies we give out and in turn attract. This happens regardless of whether or not we deliberately try to control the energies we give out. Belief in this statement would make us euphoric. If we fill ourselves with positive energy, we will attract positive energy and ultimately we would be in 'heaven' where only positive things happen to us and everything is perfect!

In order for the Law of Attraction to benefit you, there has to be solid Faith in the concepts. This means if you believe that good things are going to happen to you then they simply will. If you don't think that anything good is out there for you then chances are there won't be. We all live on Earth and so that means the Law of Attraction is out there around us at every turn. We need to do our very best to fight off the negative sources of energy and to replace them with only positive ones. Yet we also have to understand that other people around us are going to be full of negative energy. It isn't possible to completely steer clear of such individuals so plan to be exposed to them.

This doesn't mean that the Law of Attraction can't help you in such instances though. The difference is that they often will be giving off negative energy subconsciously. You on the other hand will consciously be giving off positive energy. Knowing that you can't control the universe but you can control yourself is important. This way you won't feel that the Law of Attraction isn't' working.

Focusing only on the positive make us put on blinkers that help us believe we will experience only positive. Therefore all negative experiences are attributed to the strong negative energies that others have focused on us. As children we called them spells that had been cast on us. We find it easier to lay the blame elsewhere, rather than to acknowledge the negative energy that we ourselves may have unconsciously given out.

Focusing on the positive also presupposes that we will also be able to control the energies of those around us or that those around us are also surrounding themselves with positive energy, thereby creating an island of positive energy. We presume that when we do someone a favor, they in turn will return the favor. We help to clean out a neighbor's garage with the assumption that when the need should arise, they in turn would help us clean out our garage. However this does not always happen in practice. Using this example to debunk the Law of Attraction would be shortsighted. The fault lies not in the faulty definition of the law, but rather in our faulty definition of the same.

It can be difficult to cut off relationships with people who are always negative. Yet it may be necessary to keep you from picking up that form of energy. Instead of focusing on their negativity though you need to be more dedicated to controlling your levels of positive energy. By focusing on what you want to achieve though you will have not trouble doing this when it gets tough.

As people, we attract those that are like us. If you are continually attracting people with negative energy then you need to take a realistic look at the vibes you give off. You may not realize how much negative energy you happen to possess. You can do your best though to change that energy force to something more positive. Once you accomplish this you will be able to attract a different group of people who are happy to spend time around you. There are many misconceptions about the Law of Attraction but if you know the facts you can make it all work for you.
