The Law of Attraction

“The Predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that like attracts like, consequently, the mental attitude will invariable attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.”
Charles Haanel


The Law of Attraction, positive thinking or whatever you want to call it, works on the premise that we’re capable of determining what we have and how we live with the power of our psychic energy. The idea is that we’re able to direct our mental abilities, our thoughts toward our goals and desires and obtain them.

Granted this ability isn’t something that’s easily obtained. Most people have spent their lives under the impression that the world affects them. Not the other way around. It’s a generally held belief that if fate is determined by us, it’s through our actions and not our thoughts. But aren’t our thoughts the basis of our actions?

If our thoughts cause us to act, and that action results in obtaining our goal, can we not say our thoughts were responsible for the results? The results of our actions are determined by our thoughts. Whether they’re conscious or not, our thoughts do determine what and who we are.

For many, “The Secret” hasn’t been a secret for centuries. It’s been going by different names. Every other generation feels the need to rename it. To make it theirs. But changing the name doesn’t change the idea.

The concept of “positive thinking” was the last topic and the “Law of Attraction” is the newest. But the focus is still the same. What you think will happen, will happen. Your thoughts will manifest themselves into your reality. The words change, but not the meaning.

Focusing on negative things will cause these negative things to become reality. If your life and mind are filled with anger, hate and dissatisfaction, you will find yourself surrounded by those very same things. Learning to focus your thoughts on positive things, love, happiness and contentment will have the desired results and your life will be filled with these positive things.

Just wishing for the good things in life will not make them magically appear right before your eyes. It’s a learning process in which you teach yourself to change the way you think.

The average human mind tends to focus on the negative. Worrying about fears, whether real or imagined, consumes much of our thought process. It’s part of our survival instinct. Often this takes place on an unconscious level, and we don’t even notice these thoughts. The Law of Attraction is the way to change your thinking process. Regardless of its name, the result is the same: Improving your daily life through your thoughts.

According to the Law of Attraction, Like attracts Like.  For example, if you were to say “I need more money”, it would be assumed that it is your desire to always need more money. If you wish to change that pattern, and receive the abundance you are seeking, simply rephrasing the way you’re speaking about money will bring it to you. For example, “I am making more money”, or “there is an abundance of money coming my way at all times, I am at ease”.  Easy enough, right?  So identify your limiting beliefs, and behaviours, discard the ones that no longer serve you, adapt new empowering beliefs, and begin planning and manifesting the life you Truly want.

To channel the Law of Attraction, you must learn to control your thoughts. Negative thoughts produce an equal amount of energy as positive thoughts. So the question is: Would you rather have positive thoughts or negative thoughts bringing energy into your life? Constantly thinking about your fears and saying “I don’t want that” is probably going to result in your fears being realized. Close your eyes and think of your greatest fear. There is an emotional and mental reaction, and did you notice the physical reaction? Your heart sped up a little, your palms may have dampened, your body turned in a bit to defend itself. Think of the Energy you put out to the Universe when you thought of that fear just now. It was powerful! It was all consuming! If you’re constantly thinking of that fear, and sending out that energy, the Universe will assume you Want it, and will Give it to you.

Now, think of something you really want for yourself. Something Positive. There is an emotional and mental reaction, and did you feel the physical reaction? A smile may have graced your face, your heart may have skipped a beat (in a good way), and your body sat up straighter in a more confident way. It was powerful! It was all consuming! See how that works? So if you’re constantly thinking of something Positive, the Universe will give it to you. On the other hand, if you’re constantly thinking of something Negative, the Universe will give that to you instead. It’s all about the Law of Attraction!

The power of the mind is about more than just positive thinking. Once you recognise that it is the power of your thoughts and beliefs that create your reality, you will begin to pay close attention to the thoughts you are thinking.
