Law of Attraction
As Napoleon Hill states in the classic Think and Grow Rich, "Whatever the mind can believe, the mind can achieve".
The LoA is all about believing that you will experience a certain outcome, and then trusting that it WILL in fact come to you!
Before we get started, here's some other articles you can look at. (Just scroll down a bit to read Law of Attraction for Beginners, thanks.)
Top 5 Tips for Manifesting With the LoA. I've read dozens of books on the Law of Attraction, so you don't have to! Here you can read my top 5 pieces of advice for anyone looking to manifest results with the LoA. If you use these pointers as inspiration, I think you'll be blown away by the crazy results that are possible. Find out why you need to be happy as you are now, show gratitude, and remember at all times that your brain is neutral to succeed.
Law of Attraction and Money - A Manifesto. One of the primary reasons people start experimenting with the LoA is to attempt to attract more money into their lives. As you can imagine, this is easier said than done. Read here about the success I've had modelling techniques from texts as diverse as Think and Grow Rich and The Science of Getting Rich. I'm using this article as a manifesto to regulate my thoughts about money - & it's really working!
The best way to describe the Law of Attraction for beginners is that no matter what they are, your dominant thoughts and feelings will find a way to manifest in your life.
Simply put, what you think about most – you will get. Leading on naturally from that, you will become whatever you believe you will become. Essentially, you will live the life that you predict you will live. The Law of Attraction suggests that whatever we make the effort to think about, we will manifest. Want to be rich? Want to lose weight? Want to get your dream job? Then simply think about it – with feeling – and you will get it.
By extension – if you’re fat, lazy, depressed and poor – it’s down to your thoughts and beliefs. Pretty harsh ay!
Sceptical? I don’t blame you. It’s a bit mad, isn’t it?! It’s a bit mad – BUT – if there is even a little bit of truth in it, this is a pretty powerful concept to experiment with.
It’s worth asking yourself the following question, as you might be surprised to see that you are already invoking the Law of Attraction without knowing it:
Given my beliefs about myself, and what I think about most of the time, am I really that surprised with my life – my career, relationships and finances?
For most people, the answer is no! As such, if you’re already getting what you expect to get - maybe it’s not that much of a stretch to believe that if you change your expectations, you will get more of what you want.
Applying and believing in the Law of Attraction for beginners can require a bit of a leap of faith in “the universe”. People who use this law believe we have a connection to the universe – and that we can generate tangible results – manifestations – from our dominant thoughts.
Therefore, the universe cannot be an abstract, objective entity – it must be responsive and participatory.
Still with me?! I know it can be a bit of a threat to your existing belief systems when you think about this for the first time. It’s a fundamentally different way of thinking to what you might be used to.
It might help you to know that some of the world’s most successful people do believe in the Law of Attraction – and they are the people who are generating the best results and reaching their goals. Equally, if you’re not religiously inclined, it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t a religious type of faith – so atheists, no excuses!
The new-age reasoning behind the Law of Attraction is that all thoughts are energy – and that each thought and feeling has its own vibrational frequency.
This means that each thought has a unique blueprint – a little like a snowflake.
Every time we send one of these snowflakes out into the universe, it is received as an intention. The universe then goes about manifesting this intention into our lives.
The way it seems to do this is through synchronicities – which are coincidences that defy rational explanation – and also chance encounters with contacts, and new ideas.
LOA advocates say that the Law also invokes the principle of magnetism, suggesting that our thoughts and feelings are like magnets – so, whatever we put out, we magnetically attract back to us. Think about closing a big deal? You get the big deal! Convince yourself you’ll get the job? You get the job!
There is also some debate about whether the science of quantum physics indirectly supports the Law of Attraction argument.
The best place to begin your experimenting is by paying close attention to your thoughts. If you’re like most people, your thoughts will be a little bit all-over-the-place. By noticing this, you will be in a better position to start sending out clear intentions to the universe.
After all, if you think about achieving your goal – and then immediately start worrying about failing – you are sending out conflicting intentions. Additionally, my experience is that the more feeling and emotion you put into your intentions – the more likely it is to manifest.
Therefore, if you’re kind of excited about achieving your goal, but absolutely petrified of failing – you are much more likely to manifest failure. You are feeding your intentions with a more powerful negative energy – and dooming them to failure.
My best advice is to make sure that you have set clear and compelling goals, and that you visualise regularly. Knowing what you want more than anything – and then visualising it over and over – is the best way to tip the Law of Attraction in your favour. This combination vastly reduces self-doubt too!
Investing in some
for between $10-$20 is highly recommended too. They make visualisation a lot easier and put you in a meditative state, giving you greater control over your thoughts.
Also, make sure you’re
living in the moment
as much as possible. After all, you need to be alert to notice all the mad coincidences that will start to come into your life.
A final word of advice on that – when you begin to play with the Law of Attraction, synchronicities should be seen as a little wink from the universe. If there is a coincidence in your life related to your goal – roll with it and follow the path to see where it leads you...and prepare to be blown away by a force that is both powerful and highly unusual!
