Anyone who’s familiar with the law of attraction knows that the concept is really simple.
You just need to visualize in your mind what you truly want and the universe will go out of its way to manifest it for you.
Law of Attraction sounds simple enough, right?
Yes. It’s simple in theory, but execution of this law is extremely difficult.
As human beings, we are emotional creatures and our thoughts and actions are swayed and affected by the vagaries of life.
The law of attraction, however, demands unwavering faith and optimism in the face of the impossible.
It requires you to be that ray of positive light that pierces through the dark clouds of negativity and disbelief.
Getting to this stage will require immense practice and mindfulness at all times.
You’ll need to work hard at it.
This is no walk in the park.
Instead of giving you two lists of do’s and don’ts, we’re going to explore each point in detail because in most cases, a don’t arises when you don’t do what you’re supposed to do.
While the law of attraction has worked for millions of people, they’re still the minority.
Most people who give it a try will fail miserably and will not even attract a walnut, much less wealth.
Let’s see why this happens…
The universe doesn’t operate in shades of grey. It needs you to be specific.
If you want to manifest a car, you need to know what model it will be, what color it will be and if it will be new or pre-owned.
Yes… you need that level of detail even if it’s just visualization.
When you truly know what you want, that’s half the problem solved.
Do be specific.
Don’t be vague.
- Emotion is everything
Once you know what you want, you MUST act as if it’s already yours.
Feel the joy and excitement of having achieved/received what you were visualizing for.
Emotion is everything.
With the law of attraction, emotion is the key that unlocks the door to whatever your heart desires.
So many people start off on a positive note and feel excited.
However, when what they want doesn’t appear fast, they lose the excitement and hope.
They end up going through the motions without any ‘heart’… and nothing ever happens.
You must have unwavering faith and feel it in every cell in your body.
Do have faith and emotion during your visualization sessions.
Do not engage in monotonous routine.
- Action is the foundational key to success
This is the part that the movie, ‘The Secret’, failed to mention.
Attraction = attract + action.
Too many people believe that visualization alone will get the job done.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
American novelist, J.G. Holland, once said,
“God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.”
Even if you’re not a religious person, you’ll understand the gist of the quote.
You must do whatever you can to make your dreams come true.
Visualize, have faith and take action.
When you do whatever you can to get what you want, the universe will open doors for you and give you opportunities that you never thought you’d get.
It may seem happenstance, but this is the law of attraction rewarding you for your efforts.
Do be a person of action.
Do not be idle.
- Attitude of gratitude
As tough as it may be, you should always be grateful for what you have.
You may not like the situation you’re in, but strive to be thankful for the blessings that you do have.
If you truly looked, you’d realize that you have a lot to be grateful for.
Your eyesight, good health, a home to live in, etc.
We often feel dissatisfied because we believe that we’ve not gotten what we deserve.
Or we look at others who seem better off than us and we envy and crave what they have.
The law of attraction requires you to be grateful for what you do have.
Then it will reward you with more.
That is just the way it is.
The more you complain and groan about your situation, the worse it will get.
You can’t attract positive things with a negative mindset.
Do be grateful and have patience.
Do NOT complain or hate your life.
Author Robert Collier said it succinctly when he made this quote –
“Constant repetition carries conviction.”
The law of attraction requires you to visualize at least once or twice a day.
This is a tricky situation.
You need to visualize as and when you can with faith.
But you shouldn’t do it repeatedly because you lack faith.
There’s a difference here.
You may visualize once a day with belief and faith and it’ll be much more beneficial than doing it twenty times because you’re unhappy that you haven’t gotten what you wanted yet.
You cannot rush the universe.
Do be consistent, but avoid vain repetition.
To sum it up, the law of attraction works, but you’ll have to develop self-control and be in charge of your own thoughts.
If you can master yourself, you’ll master the law and manifest miracles in your life.
It all starts with you.
That’s the real secret.
