The Power of Attraction: Does it Really Influence Our Daily Lives?

Jan 20, 2008
By now, just about everyone has heard of the Law of Attraction, but does the power of attraction really influence our day-to-day lives? Let's take a skeptical position for just a minute and examine the evidence.

The most basic example to demonstrate the law of attraction can be found in how we attract people to us -- or repel them. Think about the dating scene: a man or woman who is desperately looking for love will often repel potential partners from them. Why is that?

Why should it make any difference at all whether you are desperately seeking a relationship, or could care less? The answer to this question can be found in the Law of Attraction. It says that we always attract more of what we are predominantly feeling and thinking. So if you are feeling desperation and fear of being alone, that is EXACTLY what you are attracting more of in your life.

On the other hand, if you are thinking and feeling contentment and happiness, the power of attraction will see to it that you experience more of those things. You see, some people have the mistaken idea that the Law of Attraction will bring us anything that we want. In reality, attraction does not bring us what we "want." It brings us more of what we already "have."

This sounds like a kind of "catch 22" -- like you already must "have" something in order to attract more of it. But luckily for us, we have a secret weapon that will allow us to attract things we do not physically have (yet). It is called imagination.

You've probably heard many Law of Attraction "gurus" talk about the power of visualization, of developing an "inner seeing" that will allow you to attract virtually anything you can imagine into your life. To explain how visualization works, let's go back to the example of the dating scene.

Imagine that "Joe" is desperate for a romantic partner, and fears that he will live alone his entire life. How "attractive" do you think Joe's attitude will be to the women he meets? If you said "not very," you are absolutely right. People who send out a vibe of desperation and fear find it extremely difficult to attract a partner. What they end up attracting is only more desperation and more fear. You've probably noticed this, right?

But let's suppose that "Joe" decides to change his attitude, and begins visualizing that he already has everything he needs in his life, including romance and companionship. Now it first his mind and will probably have a hard time accepting this image, and will throw back comments like "who are you kidding -- you're desperate and you know it!"

But the interesting thing is, when we continue visualizing or "seeing" our situation in a different way, those critical voices eventually simply fade away, and the new way of seeing ourselves will become our dominant mindset. So if Joe continues to visualize already having the love and friendship that he desires in his life, with time he will come to actually believe this. And as we all know, belief is powerful.

This same technique of visualizing things that are "as yet unseen" can improve our lives in millions of little ways. We can use this power to attract love, relationships, financial success, self-confidence, material possessions, inner peace, and achieve virtually any goal we can imagine.

The power of attraction is real; it is not some "new age" wacko idea, or something only metaphysical or "spiritual" types can understand. It is simple common-sense, and once you become aware of it, you will begin to see it at work in every area of your life.
