What is the Law of Attraction?
The law of attraction is a universal principle that states you will attract into your life whatever you focus on. Whatever you give your energy and attention to is what will come back to you.
When you focus on the abundance of good things in your life, you will automatically attract more positive things into your life. But if you center yourself on negative thoughts and only focus on what you lack in life, then you will ultimately attract negativity into your life and what you want most will continue to elude you.
Why Does the Universe Use the Law of Attraction?
Simply put, it’s because like attracts like. If you are feeling excited, enthusiastic, passionate, happy, joyful, appreciative, or abundant, then you are sending out positive energy to the universe.
In turn, that positive energy will attract people, resources, and opportunities that resonate on the same energetic wavelength. This optimism that is effortlessly brought into your path of life will allow you to reach your goals.
On the other hand, if you are feeling bored, anxious, stressed out, angry, resentful, or sad, you are sending out negative energy. That negative energy will repel positivity and attract pessimistic people and events into your life.
Discovering the Law of Attraction in Your Life
You have probably noticed the law of attraction in your own life. For example, a person who complains all the time typically attracts friends or followers who also have a bad attitude. Or happy and energetic people will attract other motivated go-getters into their circle.
That’s the Universal Law of Attraction in action!
It’s important to note that the Universe doesn’t care what kind of energetic vibration you send out. It doesn’t “care” if you are a positive or negative person. It simply responds to what you offer.
By changing your energetic vibration, you can change the way the universe responds to you! You can manifest particular outcomes in your life simply by creating and leaning into vibrations that align with your desires.
But in order to do that, you must become deeply and continuously aware of your energy, thoughts, and feelings – and the seven different ways in which they shape your reality.
The 7 Laws of Attraction
The Law of Attraction can be broken down into seven “mini-laws” that all affect how the world responds to you and the results you get in life.
#1 The Law of Manifestation
This is what most people think of when they hear the words ‘Law of Attraction.’ The Law of Manifestation states that our thoughts and feelings create our reality –and what we focus on is what we will manifest in our lives.
(Pro tip: Law of Attraction affirmations are a powerful way to keep your goals top of mind and help you focus on what you want (as opposed to what you don’t want) so you’re able to create the life you desire.)
#2 The Law of Magnetism
The Law of Magnetism states that everything that has happened in your life – the people, things, and opportunities that have come into your life, as well as the circumstances in which you have found yourself – is a result of the energy you put out into the world.
You attract what you are.
#3 The Law of Unwavering Desire
Do you truly want the things you believe you want?
The Law of Unwavering Desire states that your desire to achieve or attract a certain thing must be strong and unyielding in order for you to manifest it in your life. When your desires are weak and without a rock-solid foundation, they won’t be able to attract what you want.
#4 The Law of Delicate Balance
The universe is comprised of balance—between various forces and elements. And as we are microcosms of the universe, we also crave balance. When the different aspects of your life are in balance, you are able to experience true peace and joy. But in order to achieve balance, appreciation and gratitude are required.
#5 The Law of Harmony
The Law of Harmony describes the coordinated interplay of forces and elements that comprise the Universe. Harmony is the flow of life. When you are in tune with it, everything seems easy, as if you are swimming with the current rather than against it.
Tapping into the Law of Harmony and striving to live harmoniously with all other beings will open you to the optimism that the Universe has to offer.
#6 The Law of Right Action
The Law of Right Action states that your words and actions affect the world around you and determine the quality of your experiences in life. How you behave and treat others will determine how others treat you.
When you focus on the right action and are kind to others—always being sure to do to them what you would wish done to you—you will attract more positivity into your life.
#7 The Law of Universal Influence
It’s easy to feel small and insignificant when staring up at the stars at night. But the truth is, every one of us is an integral part of the Universe. We make an impact on the world with everything we think and do. Our energy vibrations become a part of the fabric of the Universe.
3 Steps to Use the Law of Attraction
To activate the power of this universal law, all you have to do is follow a simple three-step process:
Step 1: Ask the Universe for What You Want
Every day, you send out requests to the universe—as well as to your subconscious mind—in the form of thoughts. Everything you think about, read about, talk about, and give your attention to is telling the universe what you want to attract more of into your life.
That’s why it’s so important for you to become more intentional about the thoughts you offer to the universe. The clearer and more focused you are about what you really want, the easier it will be for you to attract those things into your life.
For example, let’s say you want to change careers, move to another state, win a major professional award, have your own TV show, or recover from a major illness.
- How would you feel once you’ve “arrived” at your goal?
- What would you be doing throughout your day?
- Who would you be spending time with?
The more you focus on what you do want (instead of what you don’t want), the faster you will manifest your dreams and goals.
Step 2: Believe You’ll Get What You Want
It’s not enough just to focus on what you want – you have to believe that it’s possible!
If you think about what you want but in your heart you have doubts you will ever achieve it, you will end up sending mixed signals to the universe, which will respond to you with mixed results.
The problem is, most people have limiting beliefs that keep them from allowing abundance and happiness into their lives.
If this sounds like you, I encourage you to start doing mindset work that will help you release your limiting beliefs and replace them with the understanding that you are deserving, worthy, lovable, desirable, and capable to achieve any goal you can imagine.
Step 3: Receive What You Want
Now, to receive what you desire, you must become a “vibrational match” for what you want to attract into your life. The easiest way to do that is to create positive emotions of love, joy, appreciation, and gratitude throughout your day.
You can also practice feeling the emotions you would be experiencing if you already had what you wanted. This will activate your subconscious mind to make those imagined feelings a reality.
Finally, don’t forget to take consistent action toward your goals. Intentions are very powerful, but you must take action to get results!
How to Use the Law of Attraction for Specific Goals
Now let’s take a look at some examples of how to use the law of attraction to manifest specific outcomes in your life.
Attract Money & Financial Success
If you would like to grow your wealth, spend more time thinking about money!
Read books and watch videos on how to increase your prosperity and make more money. Envision the exact amount you would like and by when. Simply believe it will happen, and it very much will.
Above all, remember to be thankful for everything that you already have and appreciate the abundance of all that’s good in your life. This will help you create a vibrational match for the financial abundance that you want in your future.
Love & Relationship Attraction
People who are able to harness the power of the Law of Attraction frequently use it to attract more love and romance into their lives. If you want to attract love into your life, be the love you want to attract!
Be loving and generous with others and yourself. Appreciate the love you do have in your life and look for ways to express it. The more you create a vibration of love, the stronger the signal you will send to the Universe and gain more power to attract love into your life.
Improve Your Well-Being
You can also use this universal law to improve your mental and physical health.
Learning how to use the law of attraction effectively requires you to become a more positive person who focuses on feeling soul-enriching emotions such as gratitude, connection, and abundance.
This allows you to cultivate a healthier mindset, which in turn will inspire you to feel more confident and be inspired to take better care of your physical health as well.
Manifest Success Into Your Life
If you’re wondering whether it really is possible to use this universal law to take control of your destiny and attract more success into your life, I’m living proof!
And I owe it all to my mentor, W. Clement Stone. When I was a teacher in Chicago making $8,000 a year, he told me, “I want you to set a goal that’s so big that if you achieve it, you’ll know it’s because of the secret I am teaching you.”
I decided my goal would be to make $100,000 that year. I created an image of a $100,000 dollar bill and hung it on the ceiling above my bed. Every morning I’d see the image. I’d visualize what it would be like to have $100,000. Everything I did was to achieve that goal. At the end of the year, I had made $97,000!
But that’s just one story… watch the video below to see other incredible stories of people who have used this universal law to achieve incredible success in their lives.
Law of Attraction Meditation for Guidance
Meditation is an excellent form of practice to activate the law of attraction and cultivate a clear, positive mind.
Here, try this simple meditation practice to energize awareness:
- Find a quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on slowing down your breathing.
- Repeat an uplifting word or phrase.
- Move into a state of quiet.
- Imagine yourself surrounded by a sphere of light.
If you are new to the practice of meditation, your thoughts will drift and your mind will wander at first. Remember not to be hard on yourself when this happens. This is just part of learning how to meditate.
The point isn’t to control your thoughts or try to empty your head of thoughts (both of which are impossible). It’s simply to become more aware of your thoughts. Once you notice yourself thinking thoughts that are negative or don’t serve you, let them go and bring your mind back to the present.
Consistent practice of meditation will help clear your mind of distractions, cleanse your thoughts, and enhance your spiritual connection with the Universe. This will naturally help you be a more positive person and attract more good into your life.
