Today I’m discussing the Law of Attraction, What is the Law of Attraction and why it works for many people. This is how I’ve lived my life for many years. While sometimes my mind gets consumed with negative, or worrisome thoughts; I always find my way back to the Law of Attraction because it works.
Life is Continuously Moving
Life doesn’t slow down for anyone. People have said some mean things to me in the past about my optimistic attitude. I have heard that “it’s easy for you because everything seems to work out for you” I’ve heard people tell me I live in a fairy tale world. It’s like our world cannot handle anyone who tries to be positive and have a happy outlook on life no matter what’s tossed at them. Society has created a bunch of people who’d rather see others suffer than succeed. I refuse to be that person, it’s not healthy for me and it’s not healthy for the rest of society either.
Negativity Fueled Networking
I’ve noticed a trend in networking on Facebook these days. If you post negativity, you get more interactions. If you post positivity, you get fewer reactions. What has this world come to? No wonder society is on so many anti-depressant and anxiety meds from Big Pharma. While I get that life can suck and that depression is real and we all have our own mental health issues, physical health issues, difficult times with finances and emotional stability or whatever, I still stand firm in my belief that The Law of Attraction works. It’s worked for me and it can work for you. It’s going to take hard work, self-motivation, and dedication to rewire your pattern of thinking.
It took me approximately 3 years to master the rewiring of my thoughts and everyday I have to work to maintain my optimistic attitude about life in general. It’s hard work, but the payoff is amazing. Even I fall off the bandwagon so to speak from time to time, usually during “that time of the month”.
Time and Dedication is All You Need
Too many people give up before seeing that the Law of Attraction works, as it does take some time. For a society who lives in an instant gratification type of world, it’s not easy being patient. It’s not easy to have faith that you truly can make or break your life with thoughts, but you know what? Nothing that’s good in life comes easy. That’s the cold hearted truth. So today, I’m going to share more about the Law of Attraction, what it is and why it works for many people, in addition, I’ll cite some famous people who’ve used this concept long before I even knew it was a thing.
What is the Law of Attraction
In my simplest terms, the Law of Attraction is the concept that your thoughts manifest your future. The way I try to explain it to people is that your thoughts control your future. If you think about your problems, post on social media complaining about problems and only put your energy towards this then the universe will gladly bring you more problems. If you think about solutions, what you want in the future and where you’re going to be in a week, a month, or even five years and truly believe that it will happen, the universe makes it happen. It’s truly that simple.
Think of the Law of Attraction as gravity. This is an unchanging law in our world, that dropping a penny from a roof means it will fall. That jumping from a couch means you’ll land on the floor, etc. etc. Think of the Law of Attraction as a gravitational pull that brings things to your life based on what your thoughts and feelings truly represent. Like brings like. Good brings good. Believing and truly being in tune with what WILL happen in your life, good or bad, creates a gratitational pull of whatever that thought or feeling is towards you. This means bad brings bad. Dislike brings dislike. Anxious thoughts brings more anxious thoughts. The Law of Attraction pulls whatever you believe to be true towards you. Period.
No One is Perfect
This concept of a gravitational pull based on what you truly feel and believe is pretty straight forward. For those of you who complain online or in your personal life, more often than not, you’re only setting yourself up for more struggles. It’s so true. I’ve done this self-sabotaging thing to myself, many times when I’m struggling to truly believe in myself and my future. We all are guilty of feeling down from time to time, but the key is to never allow negativity to consume more than the positive feelings and thoughts.
I remind myself that everything always works out as it should. I wake up each day with a goal in mind and I tell myself that goal will happen. I don’t give the universe a second chance to put doubt in that goal. I feel the goal, I believe in the goal, I become the goal. That’s how the Law of Attraction works.
Why Does the Law of Attraction Work?
Well, this is a very confusing question to answer. It’s much like asking someone why gravity works. Sure there are many theories and scientific theories as to why gravity works, but no human being knows for sure. This is very similar to the Law of Attraction, anyone who practices this belief system and thought pattern knows it works but to explain why it works is extremely difficult.
The Law of Attraction is more about your deep solid beliefs in how the universe treats you. Think about how you interact with others in life. Think about what you truly believe you deserve in life. All of these deeply rooted belief systems are what brings joy, happiness, positivity or sadness, anger and negativity into your life. You literally get what you put out. Period.
So the Law of Attraction simply works because our thoughts have energy and whatever energy your thoughts have, the Law of Attraction returns that energy back to you. Period.
Did Someone Ask to be Hit by a Car?
I once had someone ask me if I truly believe in the Law of Attraction, that your thoughts manifest your future then do I believe that someone who got hit by a car brought that on themselves?
While I had to giggle about this question, for a person who didn’t have a clue what the Law of Attraction is, the question made sense. All I could say is that I don’t generally believe that people ask to be hit by a car, but perhaps their thought patterns were more negative in life which would generally bring them more negative. Of course, no human being envisions that they’ll be hit by a car at any time in their life, I mean I don’t think most people would wish this upon themselves. With that being said, even in the world of the Law of Attraction accidents happen.
Bad Things Can Still Happen
The Law of Attraction doesn’t mean you get everything you desire or deserve, it is merely a way to remind you that your thoughts and feelings will manifest your future. Think of the Law of Attraction as your dreams come true machine. The dreams won’t come true immediately but if you continuously believe that you will have this goal or dream achieved in the future, the Law of Attraction will make sure it delivers eventually.
Any belief system that has no solid “this is how it works” or “see this is the belief in action” is hard to comprehend. It’s hard for us to believe in something that we cannot see or have not experienced.
Famous Law of Attraction Believers
Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, Jim Carrey, and Arnold Schwarzenegger are just a few who’ve been able to embrace this concept. I honestly love this video that Oprah Winfrey shares about the Law of Attraction. She mentions The Secret, and that’s both a book as well as a DVD that will help anyone hone in on this skill.
