The Law of Attraction is not something new even though it is new to many people. Why is that? I think because it has not been explained in a way that most people can understand or it has not worked for them in the past. But what if I was to tell you that the Law of Attraction is real and does work every single time. How do I know? Besides studying the greats and some of the most successful people in the world, who by the way use the Law of Attraction, I have experienced it myself on different levels in my life.
So what is the Law of Attraction? It is the power of the universe manifesting what we want to be created. It is a power that every one of us has surrounding us every single second of our lives. How? Consciously and subconsciously, we are always in a state of creating. It does not matter where you live, your circumstances, your past, race, or gender; all of us are creating 24 hours a day, sometimes good and sometimes bad. The universe does not pause or takes a break from us, so we need to understand how the universe works so that we can benefit from it, instead of feeling like life is an uphill battle.
ASK – BELIEVE – RECEIVE!Those are the three magic words you hear all the time when it comes to the Law of Attraction. Sounds pretty simple, but is it? It is and it isn’t. It is that simple but we complicate it. To be honest, I believe most of the complication comes from our past and upbringing. A lot of people grow up not believing in themselves, with low self-esteem, co-dependency, emotional and physical abuse, anger issues, poverty level, etc.
The good news is that our minds have no boundaries so we can recreate a new life if we choose to. So why don’t most people do this? Because they do not believe they can or do not realize that they have the power to do so. Here is the secret to the Law of Attraction and why it works for some and not others. Having what you want and experiencing what you want are two different things. We all have what we want we just have not experienced it yet.
People lack experiencing their goals and dreams because they are too busy trying to figure out the “how.” What they need to focus on is the desire and certainty of creating it. So certain that they start to feel and live in a way as if it has already happened because whatever you focus on, you will attract into your life. If you focus on the good and your desires, you will attract more of it into your life. If you focus on the negative or lack of in your life, you will continue on that path of lacking.
THE UNIVERSE HAS YOUR BACK
The universe gives you what you create and will continue to do so because the choice is always yours. As much as the universe wants to give you everything you desire, it will not do so unless you believe that you can have it. This is where so many people go wrong. We all desire for new things and a better life, but only a small fraction of people truly believe that it is attainable, despite their circumstances.
Before we dive deeper into how this all works let’s go back to when the Law of Attraction first became popular. While it existed in biblical times and Plato spoke about it, it didn’t become something people talked about until Napoleon Hill wrote “Think and Grow Rich,” in 1937. Napoleon Hill, after interviewing countless successful people, came to understand that our imagination is the most powerful force the world has ever known. Napoleon Hill discovered through years of research that once you understand how the Law of Attraction works you can begin to create a happier life. A life where you start to recognize that you always have a choice to think and respond differently in every situation, to focus on your desires, and to create a future where your thoughts and feelings have power. Napoleon Hill believed what the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind of man can achieve.
The Law of Attraction states that you will attract into your life whatever you focus on, whether it is good or bad. This means one must be intentional with our thoughts and feelings. You need to focus on your desires instead of what you don’t want. Focusing on what you don’t want will only delay the manifestations of your dreams. Let’s take a look into how this entails a 3-step process into manifesting your desires.
The first one is ASK, but before you can ask the universe for what you want, you must first know what you truly desire. Otherwise, you end up confusing the universe and nothing happens or it gets delayed. When you are setting your goals make sure to ask this one question…Why? Why do you want this? This simple question holds a lot of power because your answer should bring you deep feelings and desires. If it doesn’t then it may not be something you truly want or at least not right now.
The second step is BELIEVE. This is where most people fail. Asking is easy. Believing, well, that is a whole other story. For people who daydream a lot, this part might come easy to them, but for people who are more structured and like to analyze things, it might be challenging. Try to see it as you navigating your destiny with the universe opening up doors for you and guiding you along the path. See it as a partnership. You do your part and the universe does their part. You have to trust in a power greater than yours to help you along the way and know, without a shadow of a doubt, that your desire will come to be. If you’re the type of person who has limiting beliefs about themselves, this will be hard for you to do, but not impossible. Do you know the term, “fake it till you make it?” Well, if you find yourself having a hard time believing, you can act as if you believe. Our subconscious mind is a funny thing. It does not know the difference between real and not real. It only knows what you tell it and it will believe anything you say. That’s why what you think and say is crucial to your manifesting.
The third step is RECEIVE. Have you heard the term vibrational alignment? Vibrational alignment is when your thoughts create energy. For example, have you ever noticed when you’re in a bad mood the rest of the day seems to go to crap? That is because you are emitting negative energy so you create more of it. In order to receive, your desires and thoughts must match. The quickest way to do that is through positive thinking of your desires as if you are already living them. When our thoughts are in alignment with what we desire it brings out emotions of love, gratitude, and joy. In simple terms, one cannot experience joy and sadness at the same time. Being conscious of your thoughts helps you recognize when a negative thought enters your mind so that you can turn it into a positive thought. This creates a positive energy around you, which puts you back in vibrational alignment to receive.
The whole process of Law of Attraction takes time but it is possible to master with daily practice. If you are the type that likes using the word, “but” or is constantly focusing on what you don’t have this process will be harder for you and will most likely block you from achieving your goals. Instead, you will continue to get what you continue to think about. So, change your thinking, change what you create. Consistency is key here. Take 5-10 minutes twice a day to check into your thoughts. If you find yourself in a negative place, realign your vibration to match your desired outcome. You can simply do this with affirmations, meditation, visualization, journaling, music, or anything that gets you back in that happy place. Remember, the secret to having it all isbelieving you already do.
