In this post I want to describe what the Law of Attraction is, how you can use it to attract beautiful things to your life, and then attempt to explain how it works. If you have never heard about the law of attraction before, it may seem like a bizarre concept at first, but don’t let that prevent you from learning what could easily be one of the most important things you can learn in your life.
To put it in simple words, the Law of Attraction states that your intentions become your reality, therefore the more you think about something, the more chances you have to bring it to reality.
The Law of Attraction states that all the power comes from the universe, because at the lowest level, we are all made of the same thing: energy.
Now, you can ignore how the law of attraction works at the lowest level, and still get all the benefits from it. You don’t even have to give it a name, as you can summarize it as a single concept: you become what you think you can.
Successful people have used the Law of Attraction for centuries to achieve the greatest results in history. Many of them have even written about it.
Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions. Albert Einstein
Whether you think you can or can’t either way you are right. Henry Ford
As you think so shall you become. Bruce Lee
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. Buddha
You create your own universe as you go along. Winston Churchill
It is done unto you as you believe. Jesus
Whatever your mind can conceive and can believe, it can achieve. Napoleon Hill
All these people agreed on the top-level concept of the Law of Attraction: you become what you think you can.
You are now ready to learn how to use the Law of Attraction to get everything you want in your life.
Learn this, and you’ll be able to attract anything you want in your life
This is the most interesting part for you. I recommend you to read the following paragraphs with an open mind and with a strong desire to learn if you want to get the most out of it.
As I’ve already said before, you become what you think you can, but what I forgot to say, is that this is always true. Let me explain what I mean. If you think that you would like to get a new car, but you also think that you can’t afford it, you are in reality reinforcing the idea that you can’t have a new car. The universe doesn’t mind wherever what you really want is a new car, as it will follow your intentions literally.
This is the reason why you don’t always have what you want, as in those cases you are probably reinforcing the exact opposite of what you really want. Let’s see another example, debts. If you constantly think about your debts, and how hard it is to pay them off, then you are in reality attracting them even more, and you’ll always end up having more of them.
It may seem absurd at first to believe in the Law of Attraction, so before I’ll tell you how to exactly take advantage of it, let me show you how it works.
When you think about something, your brain stores specific information in its internal memory. If you are thinking about getting a new car, your brain is storing that information for you, and it will automatically think of how to get one (using your so called unlimited potential), and chances are that you’ll get one soon. But if you think about not being able to afford it, your brain will do its best to make it even harder for you to get that new car.
Now, finally, let’s see how you can use the Law of Attraction to get what you want.
The first thing you have to learn is how to ask something to the universe (or to your brain, if that makes more sense to you). This step consists of three main actions: ask, believe, and receive.
- Ask. This is where you ask for what you want. It’s extremely important to be specific about what you want, and to use positive and meaningful words.
- Believe. This is where you act as you already have what you want.
- Receive. This is where you receive what you want from the universe.
When you ask for something, it’s important that you are specific and that you use the correct words. There are many ways you can use to ask for something, for example you may write down in paper your intention. It’s important that you use the present tense, for example you could write something like: “I am happy because I have $100,00 dollars in the bank”, as opposed to “I want to have $100,00 dollars in the bank”.
The believe part is where you live your life accordingly to your wish. Act as if you already have what you want, and really believe it. You can also use visualization to reinforce your thoughts. Your brain does not distinguish between a real experience and one that’s happening only in your heads, so if you want a new car, close your eyes and imagine driving your new car. If you want to have $100,00 dollars in your bank, write a check with your name and the amount of money and put it where you can see it every day.
The receive part is where you get what you want. You don’t yet know how you’ll get it, so you have to pay attention to your intuition, and be ready to act whenever you have a good feeling. The universe is extremely fast, so act right away when you receive a sign or message. At the end you most likely have to take action if you really want to get something real.
As I said earlier, there’s a second step to take if you want to get the most out of the Law of Attraction, and that is to live accordingly to these two rules: be happy, and be grateful. Fortunately, this is the easier step, and also the one where you can see immediate results.
Being happy means that it’s up to you to interpret external factors in a positive and constructive way. For example it’s not written anywhere that you have to be hungry every time you are in the middle of the traffic. It’s only you that creates your emotion, so it’s your responsibility to always create positive ones. In short, be always happy and positive.
Being grateful means to not take everything you have for granted. Make a habit to dedicate a few minutes every day where you think of all the things you are grateful for. If you do this, you will automatically attract more of what you already like, and at the same time you’ll increase your happiness.
What I described until now is how to use the Law of Attraction in your life. In the next section I’ll attempt to explain how everything works in a lower level. If you are not interested in it, you can jump directly to the conclusion of the article.
How everything works
I’ll now attempt to explain how the Law of Attraction works. Keep in mind two things, the first is that it doesn’t matter how it works at the lower levels, as you already know how to use it. The second thing is that I’m just saying my opinion and nobody knows yet how the Law of Attraction really works, so you are welcome to provide your contribution in the comments.
On a higher level, our brain stores our thoughts in memory and like a search engine it tries to get them back when we need them. This process happens asynchrony, which means that if you want to remember the title of a song, you don’t necessarily have to focus on it until you get the answer, because your brain can do that for you while you sleep, or do something else.
Another interesting fact is that our brain can’t distinguish a real experience from one that is happening only in your imagination. Psychologists know this, and in fact are helping many Olympic athletes to improve their performance only with the power of their mind (for example by making them run their perfect run in their mind).
When you express a wish, you are in reality asking to your brain how to bring it to reality. Its responsibility is to find a way to make it happen. It doesn’t matter how, and in most cases it will just use past experiences to jump to a conclusion, but it could also use your unlimited power to find an answer. As we said, this process happens asynchrony, so you need to ask it just once, and then reinforce the thought with visualization and by being confident.
On a lower level, philosophers are linking the Law of Attraction with quantum physic. Quantum physic is not an easy topic and I wont discuss much about it here. Suffice to say that at the lower level we are all made of the same thing, which is pure energy, and all this energy is linked together, thus we can potentially control outside events with our thoughts.
This lower level is difficult and counter intuitive to understand, so you don’t have to make sense of it if you don’t want to. Think of it like the binary language of computers, you don’t have to think in terms of zeros and ones to use your computer, yet that’s what is happening at the lower level when you use it.
I hope that you now have a clear idea of what the Law of Attraction is, and how you can use it to attract good things to your life. I guarantee you that if you apply what you’ve read here you’ll see dramatic changes in your life in the next weeks or months.
