What is the Law of Attraction and How Does It Work

Apr 9, 2008
The Laws of Attraction are a part of life, so you can live by then or you can choose not to. Many people have other names for them including The Golden Rule or Karma. There are certainly many expressions out there that people use all the time to explain it. We have often heard from our parents that you get what you give to others. When some one has done wrong people of then tell us not to worry as Karma will catch up to them - what comes around goes around.

More simply put, the Law of Attraction is anything to which you are attracted or drawn, anything to which you feel a kinship, be it a person, place, animal or thing. Experience teaches us that this would depend on our age and stage in life, our state of being, the silver spoons and blows that life has dealt us. In short there are so many variables that it is practically impossible to put down a Law of Attraction. How often have we sat in the doctor's office or on a bus and simply felt either attracted to or repelled by a particular person. This is no positive or negative reflection on either you or the other person. It simply means that the person's energies are vibrating on the same or different frequencies from the other person. By the same token when you are cheery, the day turns cheery and gay and you seem to attract happy people to you. However on your gloomy days the opposite happens just as easily. It is also to be remembered that the Laws of Attraction need not always be positive and 'for you'. They could just as easily work against you. This is brought to life in the form of relationships that go sour, actions that hurt us and others, in all the things that have gone wrong in our lives because of choices we have made.

To continue on a positive note, it is to be remembered that if you want a positive outcome, you need to attract what you want into your life by aligning your heart and mind to the outcome of your desire.

Given below are some guidelines to experiencing a Positive Law of Attraction:

Align your thoughts and feelings or mentally and emotionally put yourself in the future as if you have already achieved your goal. If it is a positive experience, you know that it is a positive or 'building' law of attraction. If it leaves you with a negative or down feeling, you know you should avoid the experience like the plague or you could work backwards and try to reverse some of the intervening negative steps so that you have a final positive result.

Take an inventory of all of the good things that are already going on in your life. This is something too many people often fail to do. You will find this process really inspirers you to be even more positive about other things in your life. All of this is going to result in the Laws of Attraction benefiting your life as a whole. There is a huge difference between a desire you have and a need that you have. When a person desires something they often feel very positive about the experience. When it comes to needs though the negative energy tends to be a part of it. This is why you need to really have a passion surrounding the goals you set for yourself. It is going to help you to maintain a high level of positive energy.

Desire is the more positive of the two emotions that will lead to a positive force of attraction. While Need is more negative and is synonymous with feelings of lack. It is therefore necessary to be passionate about your desired outcome, yet at the same time remain light-hearted and unattached.

Spend a great deal of time thinking about those ultimate goals. Don't let doubt creep in that will zap your positive energy. If you start to think about what can prevent you from reaching your goal you need to nip it in the bud. You need to erase such thoughts from your mind and focus only on those that are positive.

Act on opportunities that crop up as you experience the law of attraction. Remember that these are stepping-stones to achieving your goals. Seemingly unrelated and inconsequential encounters can have a great significance as you pursue your dreams. Engaging the law of attraction calls for persistence and focus on your goal. In today's world of instant gratification and microwave popcorn, we need to focus on Persistence while we remember that which comes easiest or fastest is often not the best. Remember "Where there's vision, there's a way."

Make sure you truly love yourself as well. A positive self image is vital to generating positive energy. It is going to allow you to believe in yourself enough to work for what you want. It is going to help you smother those negative thoughts that will leave you powerless. There are many benefits to the Law of Attraction once you fully understand what it entails.
