Law of Attraction
Understanding the Law of Attraction is the key to creating the life of your dreams.
The Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the universe. Just like gravity, it is always in effect, always in motion.
It is working in your life at this very moment
Simply put, the Law of Attraction says that you will attract into your life whatever you focus on. Whatever you give your energy and attention to will come back to you. So, if you stay focused on the good and positive things in your life, you will automatically attract more good and postive things into your life. If you are focused upon lack and negativity, then that is what will be attracted into your life.
You are what you think about all day long.
--Dr. Robert Schuller
You are always in a state of creation. You always have been. You are creating your reality in every moment of every day. You are creating your future with every single thought: either consciously or subconsciously. You can't take a break from it and decide not to create because creation never stops. The Law of Attraction never stops working.
So, understanding just how this law of operates is a fundamental key to your success. If you want to change your life, and empower yourself to create an amazing future, then you need to understand your role in the Law of Attraction.
To let life happen to you is irresponsible.
To create your day is your divine right.
Here's how it works: Like attracts Like. If you are feeling excited, enthusiastic, passionate, happy, joyful, appreciative, or abundant, then you are sending out positive energy. On the other hand, if you are feeling bored, anxious, stressed out, angry, resentful, or sad, you are sending out negative energy. The universe, through the Law of Attraction, will respond enthusiastically to both of these vibrations. It doesn't decide which one is better for you, it just responds to whatever energy you are creating, and it gives you more of the same. You get back exactly what you put out there. Whatever you are thinking and feeling at any given time is basically your request to the universe for more of the same.
Because your energy vibrations will attract energy back to you of the same frequencies, you need to make sure that you are continually sending out energy, thoughts, and feelings that resonate with what you want to be, do, and experience. Your energy frequencies need to be in tune with what you want to attract, then the vibrational frequencies of love and joy are what you want to create.
Think of it this way--it's a lot like transmitting and receiving radio waves. Your frequency has to match the frequency of what you want to receive. You can't tune your radio to 98.7 on your FM dial and expect to get a station broadcasting on 103.3. It just won't happen. Your energy has to synchronize with, or match, the energy frequency of the sender. So, you have to keep your vibration tuned to a positive frequency in order to attract positive energy back to you.
Another good example is that of a tuning fork. When you strike a tuning fork, you activate it to send out a particular sound or frequency. Now, in a room filled with tuning forks--only those that are tuned to the exact same frequency will begin to vibrate in response. They will automatically connect and respond to the frequency that matches their own. So the idea here is to tune yourself to resonate at a frequency that is in harmony with what you want to attract. In order to create a positive future, you need to keep your energy, thoughts, and feelings in the positive range.
You can learn to manage your thoughts and emotions and maintain a vibrational match for what you want to attract by learning to respond instead of just reacting to the situations in your life. Most of us go through life just reacting automatically and unconsciously to the things and events that take place around us. Perhaps you're having a rough day, you've gotten a flat tire, or maybe someone has treated you unfairly. Say that you react in a negative way to these situations with your thoughts and emotions. You become angry, frustrated, or upset. In this case, you are reacting to the situation instead of consciously responding to it, and your negatively charged thoughts and emotions are automatically placing an order with the universe for more of the same negative experiences. In order to create a more positive outcome, you must learn to consciously respond in a different, more positive way.
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
The good news is that once you understand the Law of Attraction, and how it works, you can begin to consciously and intentionally create a better life. You can choose to respond differently to the situations that arise during your day. You can choose to think differently. You can choose to focus and think about the things you want more of in your life. You can choose to experience more of the things that make you feel good. You can choose to deliberately participate in the creation of your future by managing your thoughts and feelings.
Your future is created by what you do
today, not tomorrow
The Law of Attraction allows for infinite possibilities, infinite abundance, and infinite joy. It knows no order of difficulty, and it can change your life in every way.
In order to really understand how the Law of Attraction works in your life, we need to look at a few things.
Let's start at the beginning.
The universe is change; our life
is what our thoughts make it.
