Law of Attraction: A Summary

Published on March 10, 2007 in General, Self Improvement


In its elementary, most uncomplicated form, Law of Attraction (LOA) insists on the soundness of one deeply embedded saying: like attracts like. The thing is that the matters on which you set most of your interests, most of your attention are the ones that will be instantly drawn into your life. These are all important aspects that will guide your life. Whether they will tyrannize it or favorably manage it, this is one consequence that only depends on your attitude. However, we could easily wonder why then we aren’t all happy, wealthy and healthy. Aren’t all people focusing on these issues?

To be true, the answer to this question is NO, unfortunately. Most of us don’t really concentrate on the best things in our lives. On the contrary, we tend to only see what’s most unfortunate or sad. If something wrong is going on, we barely think of something else but to that unhappy situation, instead of focusing on the potential solutions. Apparently this is deep-rooted in our human nature and it takes quite some practice to change this habit.

Consider this: is it difficult for you to accept the fact that just by thinking – really thinking – about it you could be happy? Well, if you cannot accept this, you have a long way to go to settle things down with LOA. If you think that it is impossible to get rich, to be healthy, to be loved, to keep fit, to love, the immediate consequence delivered by virtue of LOA is that you will not be rich, healthy, loved, fit or loving. In other words, thinking in terms of impossibility attracts the impossibility of all the things you desire, but don’t feel confident enough that you can get. In this manner, you are summoning only the negative aspects of LOA.

If you want to call forth the positive attainments of LOA, you need to focus on the things you want. Don’t over-exaggerate with the idea that you don’t have them. On the contrary, allow your mind to picture them, dream them up, and anticipate just how it feels to have them. You need to be confident that you will obtain all those things you envisage. This is how LOA will suggest to you the best possible means of getting what you need. Indeed, LOA will not make happiness fall from the clear blue skies: it will offer you the best approaches that will facilitate your road towards happiness.

In the end, it is all a matter of positive vibrations. Of course, some work will have to be done; LOA is not a magic wand or the fairy godmother that will make you thin in a second or bring you wealth at a clap of hands. On the contrary, in order to have access to the proper mechanisms that will lead your way to attaining what you wish for, you need to grow aware of the influence that LOA has on the fortunate or unfortunate development of your enterprises. So prepare your mind to accept the positive things in your life and positive outcomes will not fail to turn visible.
