You have probably watched The Secret and, if you haven’t I strongly recommend that you do. The Secret brings together the many teachings of well known icons over time in regards to the law of attraction and some practical ways to use the Law of Attraction.
I personally manifested two big things in my life..
after watching the film, by playing the audio version on CD in my car over and over again. The first was my soulmate, my current husband and the second was the money to pay for our wedding which was all touch and go at the very last minute and, in fact, we only received the last amount of money needed two days before the wedding!
Watching or listening to “The Secret” is one way of learning how to use the law of attraction to manifest your hopes and desires but, in order to get a better understanding of how the law of attraction works, I will go more in-depth into the bare bones of what the law of attraction is all about using the teachings of Abraham as depicted by Jerry and Esther Hicks.
According to the teachings of Abraham
There are three universal laws:
- Law of Attraction
- Law of Deliberate Intention/Creation
- Law of Allowing
You must first understand and utilise the first law in order to utilise and understand the second law and then understand and utilise the second law before you can understand and utilise the third law.
Fully understanding each law will allow you to create your life experience exactly as you want it to be. Upon understanding each of them you will realise that:
All people, circumstances and events are invited into your experience by you through your thoughts..
and you will begin to live your life as you intended when you made the decision to come forth into your physical body in this lifetime.
The law of attraction says:
“That which is like unto itself, is drawn”
It is the most powerful law in the universe!
Every thought that you create, creates an energy vibration and the law of attraction responds to it.
Think of yourself like a magnet:
- if you are feeling fat, you cannot attract thin.
- If you are feeling poor, you cannot attract prosperity.
Also, it is no good saying “I don’t want to experience THAT”. You are still attracting what you think and speak about so you are still attracting it.
In other words, there is no such words as no, don’t want, or can’t in the law of attraction so you must focus on what you DO want.
For example, if you say:
- “I don’t want to be in debt anymore” all the law of attraction hears is “being in debt” so that is what you attract.
- You need to say “I have an abundance of money. Money comes to me in expected and unexpected sources and I am financially free”.
You won’t believe what you are saying to yourself at first but, fortunately, things do not manifest instantaneously so you have time to change your thoughts and your words.
One thing I always do is I state to the Universe:
“My positive thoughts far outweigh my negative ones and are much more powerful”
It’s true anyway but it makes me feel better saying it AND it really works!
The Law of Attraction is always working!
Believe it or not, your attention to subjects, your activation of thought and the law of attraction’s response to those thoughts is responsible for every person, every event and every circumstance that comes into your experience.
They are all brought into your experience by a sort of powerful magnet matched to the vibration of your thoughts and feelings.
Through your feelings you get a sense of what you are thinking about whether you want it or not.
Once you understand this law and begin to pay attention to what you are giving your attention to, you will gain control over your own life experience.
We are all affected by sad experiences ..
tragic occurrences and circumstances we hear or see about but we do not want to attract them into our existence. If we observe, empathise, send love and blessings to all those involved and then let it go, it does not affect us.
LOVE is the most powerful vibration ..
and by sending out this vibration it can make big changes to the future, particularly if more and more people do this.
There is nothing that you desire that you cannot achieve.
There is nothing that you do not want that you cannot release from your own life experience.
Everything you do sparks your thoughts.
- It can be watching TV, reading a book, scrolling through your newsfeed in social media or even just talking to someone.
- That’s why it is important to be sure, whenever possible, you surround yourself with positive, likeminded people and experiences to raise your vibration.
Personally, this is why I never watch the news on the TV. Yes I keep up to date with big news online but I only do that when I am in the right frame of mind and then I send love and blessings to the situation to turn my experience and my feelings around.
Thoughts gain Power
As you think or ponder a thought, the law of attraction goes to work and offers you other thoughts, conversations and experiences of a similar nature.
If you think about something long enough, you will start to notice other people beginning to discuss it with you as the Law of attraction finds others who are offering a similar vibration and brings them right to you.
The longer you focus on something, the more powerful it becomes. Whether you are focussing on things you do want or things you do NOT want, the evidence of your thoughts continuously flows to you.
Your emotions are your physical indication ..
of your relationship with your inner being, your higher self or whatever you want to call it, the part of you closest to source. Whether you think of that being God, or universal life force energy, it really doesn’t matter.
The main thing is that you learn to tap into your inner being in order to know when you are not feeling in alignment with anything.
In other words if you are experiencing a negative emotion, it means there is a mismatch with yourself and your inner being.
For example, if you think you are not good enough and not worthy enough of something, your inner being would disagree with that so there will be a negative emotion. If you feel proud of yourself or feel love from someone else that matches with your inner being, that creates a positive emotion of love and pride.
The better you feel, the better the point of attraction.
Let your emotions be a guide..
so that you know whether you are in the process of creating something you want or something you don’t want.
It is hard to monitor all your thoughts..
in fact it is practically impossible so it is much better to pay attention to how you are feeling.
This is called the emotional guidance system and you can easily use it to direct your thoughts to something that changes your feelings.
In order to effect positive change..
you need to focus on the way you want things to be not as they are at the moment.
However, I feel I must add that if you are healing from past trauma, you need to experience these thoughts and feelings and let them go with grace and ease.
There is a process when you go through healing and things can come up several times at different periods in order to fully let them go.
The best thing to do is embrace days when you feel like this, look after yourself, get some rest if you can, let them out emotionally as best as you can, either by having a good cry, doing some deep breathing, getting outdoors to release in the open air, whatever you feel you need to do.
Then once you have let go, see them floating away on a big black dark raincloud and then see the rainbow appear and raise your vibration with something that you love to do.
- That could be listening to music
- watching something funny on the TV
- having a laugh with a friend
- taking a walk in the country
Whatever makes you heart sing.
Just don’t beat yourself up about the negative thoughts as, once you let them go, you will feel as light as a white feather and you will be able to raise your vibration even higher.
The thoughts that you think in combination with the feeling of STRONG emotion are THE most powerful
Therefore, the majority of your thoughts have no great attracting power.
Also, it is much easier to change a thought in the early stages than when it has gained momentum and more power.
The most effective way to change any negative thoughts you have is to think about something or focus on something completely different that gives you joy.
It can even be something as simple as looking at a photo of a loved one. I used to keep a photo of my children when they were little on my desk so that when they were giving me grief over something when they were teenagers, I could look at the photo of them when they were little and remember the love I feel for them. It’s very effective.
So, just have a go at changing your negative thoughts to positive ones and remember that it is the emotion behind them that makes them more powerful.
Have fun with it and don’t make it a chore as that will give you a negative feeling which will send out the wrong vibration. As the following quote says, it is better to think and wish for things which bring you joy.
“Deliberately guiding your thoughts is the key to a joyful life, but a desire to feel joy is the best plan of all” because in the reaching of joy, you find the thoughts that attract the life you desire”.
