Do you believe in magic?
I don’t know about you, but every time I see a magic trick, I’m blown away. Maybe it’s because I can appreciate the unknown or it’s because I’m like the most gullible person ever but I just can’t get enough of them.
Deep down, I feel a little skeptical though. Once my eyes have returned to normal size (from being completely wide from awe) and I’m able to stop saying WOOOOW, I start having the typical doubts. “There’s no way that’s real…right?”, “That’s not humanly possible!” And although I can’t exactly explain the idea of magic, I’m not able to prove that it isn’t real either.
That’s kinda what the Law of Attraction is like.
The law of attraction by definition is that like attracts like. I think of it like magnets — when you have two magnets that match, they attract one another and hold on tight. We can apply it to our lives like placing an order; what you ask for, you shall receive. It sounds a little bogus but the sh*t works, and it has for many people. Successful people of the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Jim Carey, Denzel Washington, and countless more.
Here’s the long answer.
According to thelawofattraction.com, simply put, the Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is believed that regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all susceptible to the laws which govern the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. It is the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually.
Fact or fiction?
Just like magic, many people ask if the law of attraction is the real deal, and more importantly does it actually work — it absolutely does. It’s rooted in science (yay science). The smarty pants’ say that it has something to do with quantum physics. But believe me, you don’t want me to explain it to you. I switched majors from forensic science in college so I’ll let the experts explain it.
How to achieve it
“Unfortunately, so many of us are still blind to the potential that is locked deep within us. Consequently, it is all too easy to leave your thoughts and emotions unchecked. This sends out the wrong thoughts and attracts more unwanted emotions and events into your life.”
Ctrl, Alt, Delete. Start by changing your mindset. I don’t want to keep beating this dead horse but we have got to change the way we think and speak to ourselves. Speak like you’ve already won the battle and you certainly will.
Be a mirror. There’s a saying that I heard once that has always stuck with me. It says that you should dress for the job that you want, not the one that you have. It’s such a strong saying that relates entirely to our concept of manifesting great things. If you arrive to work every day, play the part, do your best and think like the CEO, you will see success in your career, your attitude, and should start packing boxes for your fancy new office.
Putting the law into action
There are many great practices and activities that can help you connect with the universe to put the Law of Attraction into action. One great idea is a vision board! I created my first board this week and my attitude has already improved and I’m feeling excited! It forced me to articulate the things that I want to see in my life this year and the way that I want my attitude to change. What do you think of how it turned out?
Another great thing to do to channel this law is to write things down. If you aren’t the crafty type and want to save some time cutting small pieces of magazines, grab a pen and paper and write down your vision. Put it on your refrigerator or your desk, or even on your bathroom mirror. Ensure that they are in a place that you will see them often and remind yourself that you are one moment closer to your breakthrough.
Where to start
There are plenty of areas where we’d like to see improvement. Many of us certainly wouldn’t complain if we had healthy love lives, thriving relationships, commas in our bank accounts, a clean body, and a fulfilling personal life. Below are some resources for you to start channeling greatness into your life. Enjoy!
Love & Relationships
Health & Wellness
Growth & Abundance
The Law of Attraction is what some call the secret. It is the key to unlocking a life of happiness that is within our control. It sounds a little silly, maybe even unreal but it’s not a scam, it’s a choice — a choice to change how you see your life and the things that you welcome into it.
