Religious leaders, New age thinkers, and even psychologists have talked about the Law of Attraction for years.
However, the movement gained popularity when the book “The Secret” experienced a meteoric rise in 2006.
The concept behind the Law of Attraction is simple: you attract what you think about, good or bad.
Whether or not you are aware of the power of the universe, you would be delighted to know that there is scientific research that proves the effects of thinking positively.
Below are some of the ways the Law of the Attraction can change your life for the better:
You will attract good or bad experiences depending on your thoughts.
According to Esther and Jerry Hicks, “The ones who speak most about illness have illness. The one one who speaks about prosperity has prosperity.”
When you focus on something, you make it happen.
You attract all of it.
When you focus on something, you invite it in, even if it’s something you don’t want.
According to the book, “The Secret,” “When you think a little thought of something you want, through the Law of Attraction, that thought can grow larger and larger. It can also become more and more powerful.”
With that in mind, it is ideal that you keep your thoughts positive at all times.
The more you focus on a thing, the more powerful it can become.
If you want to manifest something in your life, you need to dwell and focus on it.
In a way, you will “attract” it in your life.
The same principle applies when you focus on the bad things.
It is best to trust your emotions than to overthink a decision.
Putting it another way: listen to your intuition.
Rather than overthinking the options you have, let your emotions guide you towards what is right or wrong.
This can help you create a better and more fulfilling life—the life you truly want.
You can manifest your desires faster if you think about them more.
According to Abraham Hicks, if you want a desire to manifest faster, you need to dwell on what it is that you want.
However, you don’t have to obsess about it.
Focus on it for a few minutes each day (ideally when you wake up and before you go to sleep) and then go about your day, knowing that what you want is already yours.
To make a change, you have to see things as you want them to be, not as they are.
This is something many successful people can attest to.
This is commonly referred to as visualising.
Michael Phelps talked about picturing himself winning every night before going to bed.
To effect true positive change in your experience, you need to disregard how things are.
You need to focus more on how you want to be seen and how you want things to be.
This is one of Abraham Hicks’ primary teachings: to give more of your attention to how you want things to be.
You can increase your magnetic power by giving more time to powerful thinking daily.
Spend at least 15 minutes each day thinking about your dreams, goals, and desires and whatever it is that you want from life.
According to Abraham Hicks, this can significantly increase your chances of manifesting faster.
Success is not a finite source. Everyone has access to it.
In other words, the success of others won’t limit your success.
In the same manner, when you attract abundance, you are not limiting the abundance of others.
Don’t wallow in disappointment.
If you are disappointed or frustrated, you will only attract more things to be upset about.
Frustration or disappointment also implies you are out of alignment to what it is that you want.
That said, you can acknowledge the frustrating or disappointing situation but don’t focus on it.
Over the You
The Law of Attraction is not as complex as it seems. If truth be told, it is actually very straightforward. The primary idea is to focus on the things you want and believe it is already yours—just a matter of time until it becomes real in your world. With those two concepts alone, you already have the Law of Attraction all figured out.
