The law of attraction is essentially a belief or theory, that “like attracts like,” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, you attract positive or negative results. Basically you attract into your life whatever you think about, whether you want it or not. So if you “truly” believe your thoughts, you literally have the power to consciously and deliberately choose what you want in life. What kind of money do you want to make? While the law of attraction has received quite a bit of publicity these days, the concept has been around for centuries and has been known (and used successfully) by many great minds throughout history. It has been written in books that there is evidence the law of attraction was used by Beethoven, Einstein, and even Jesus. Many wonder why it works, and there are reams upon reams of anecdotal evidence confirming it does.
If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction then you know that this Law is in fact a scientific law stating that “LIKE” attracts “LIKE”, so in other words we are like a magnet and whatever we think about in our minds we will attract to ourselves.For instance, focus on something positive and we attract positive things, focus on something negative and we attract negative things. Seems simple enough, so why do so many people struggle with this?
Well, the answer to that is simple too! According to Bob Proctor one of the key figures in the hit move The Secret and very successful Motivational Speaker, there are in fact 11 laws that accompany the Law of Attraction and they were simply left out of the movie. So, most people got the basic “jisk” of the Law but not the full version of it. Thus, leaving people frustrated and doubtful like me. He believes that great results will be achieved once the 11 Laws are learnt and applied.
Most people think about what they don’t want instead of thinking about what they do want. As gay men, when we walk down the street, some of us think about what might happen if we run into a homophobe and how they might react to us. At work some of us think about how our co-workers might respond to us. When we go to the theater or to the market with other gay men, we wonder if people recognize we’re gay. But what happens if we “stop” thinking about what we’re afraid of and “only” think about what we want? Now I will admit it takes some practice to be aware of our thoughts and to consciously learn to change them. But luckily as humans we can discern and choose to think about what we want. One way to quiet the mind and get control of your thoughts is to consider practicing meditation. Once you start to catch and change your thoughts, you are on your way to creating and obtaining the life you want.
There are a lot of different factors which need to be considered when you’re applying the law of attraction, way to many to cover in this one article alone! However I want to cover the first and most important step in using the law of attraction before covering three proven techniques on how to use the law of attraction more effectively. This is quite difficult for most to accept which is why they struggle to make the law of attraction work for them properly! Take some time to think about it. Do you allow past events and people to affect your way of thinking today still?
Do you blame others for some of your misfortunes? Once you acknowledge that only you can manifest that which you desire you will be in good stead to proceed through the next three steps.Here you need to be completely honest with yourself and ask yourself how committed you really are to making your dreams a reality. Most people give up to early because they don’t see the results that they want fast enough, it takes time to really accept that you can or already have received that which you desire.
You also need to show commitment to your own beliefs and focus your attention and energy on manifesting these beliefs into a physical entity. Allow for yourself to be free of your daily stresses and worries and allocate some time where you’re solely focused on practicing the law of attraction and allow no other influences (especially negative) to impact your positive vibe.
The first step to the law of attraction says that you need to ask yourself what it is that you would like to do or have. Then you must ask the universe or even yourself for it. This means that you may not have to wish for discipline to eat healthy, but you will want to ask for something that will be working on yourself. Then you will need to think about all that it means. This means that it is going to affect your diet, your workouts, your personal strength and goals. When you ask for strength to change yourself from the inside out, you are making a decision that will affect several things in your life.You will find that there is a lot to the second step of the law of attraction and this is where you will find your success mostly. You will need to banish all the negative energy that surrounds you and learn how to embrace a positive energy.
You will also need to think about the way that the negative energy makes you feel and also how the positive attitude or energy makes you feel. Then you have to choice to let go of the negative feelings and think about the ways that the positive energy will affect you. You will want to consider that there are many things that you will need to do in order to let go of the baggage and that this step could take you awhile. Feel free to use therapy techniques like massage therapy to replace your negative energy with positive energy.The third step says that you need to see yourself in that way, however, when it comes to eating, you will find no need to shovel in the bad stuff. You will be able to break your habits with step two and once you have released that energy, you will feel like a completely different person. The last step says that you need to accept what it is that you have asked for, however, you just need to learn how to accept yourself in this case. Reflect on all the hard work that it was and how much it really changed you. You will find that the reflection will show even more respect for yourself and for the process.
