Have you ever heard about the Law of Attraction? Perhaps you’ve come across it once or twice but never really bothered to learn more about it. Or maybe you know quite a lot about it, but haven’t fully understood it yet. No matter which stage you’re on, here’s all you need to know about this elusive, life-changing concept.
First things first, what is the Law of Attraction? This law is one of the 7 laws of the universe, and it helps open your eyes to a world of possibilities. To say it briefly, the Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. The main principle of this lays in the power of the mind to translate whatever is in your thoughts and materialize them into your reality. What you think, you become; what lingers in your mind, you attract.
Here’s when the key concept of manifestation comes into play. What is manifestation exactly? Essentially, a manifestation is an act of bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief. Since the Law of Attraction states that you’re constantly attracting things into your life based on your thoughts, feelings, and vibrational levels, what you focus on will come to you. Intentional manifestation is when you purposely focus on a particular thing that you want to see happen in your life, and it actually takes place after a period of time.
Now, vibrational levels. What’s that supposed to mean, right? Well, everything in this world is made up of energy – energy that’s constantly in motion, vibrating at a certain frequency depending on its state. The Law of Attraction says that, if you want something, you need to be vibrating at the same level to effectively manifest it into your life. If you spend all day thinking that your dream is impossible to achieve, that your life is never going to get better, that you’re stuck feeling frustrated for the rest of time…you are never going to match the vibrational frequency of all your dreams. Negativity gets you nowhere, period. You won’t attract anything positive into your life by refusing to believe in yourself.
So, how do you raise your vibration? The Law of Attraction is all about that chain reaction. It’s not about just wanting to get your dream job and waiting for it to magically happen; it’s all about having the right mindset to attract it into your life. The trick is to take that action, to put in the effort, and essentially become what you want to be. How would you act if you had your dream job? What improvements would you make to your daily routine? Put some serious thought into those details and start that chain reaction. Give yourself a push towards the life that you want and believe you can have it. Because you certainly can.
The basic three-step Law of Attraction process for manifesting anything you want is the following:
- Ask: You have to ask the universe for what you want. Set your intentions and make them as clear as possible. There are many manifestation techniques to do this step; we’ll get to them in a moment.
- Believe: You must have complete and utter faith in your manifestations. It’s critical that you actually believe your dreams will come true. Forget the hows or the what-ifs, just trust the universe on this one. Believe that you’re worthy of achieving those dreams and get grateful.
- Receive: Begin to feel excited about what’s coming your way. Anticipate the emotions that will flood you as soon as your manifestation comes true. It’s important to feel happy, grateful, and confident during this process, so you can match the vibrational frequency of your manifestations.
Alright, now that you know the basics, let’s head right onto some manifestation techniques, so you can start implementing the Law of Attraction into your life.
These are positive statements in the present tense, tailored specifically to what you want to attract into your life. For example, if you want to attract more self-confidence into your life, you would say “I’m so happy and grateful for feeling so comfortable on my own skin and being able to trust myself in every step of the way”. You can either say your affirmation out loud or write it down on a page. The key to this method is consistency. You have to repeat that specific affirmation you’ve chosen every day for at least a week or so, enough to get that chain reaction going and meeting the universe half-way there.
On top of all the regular benefits of meditating, this practice can also help you with the Law of Attraction. There are tons of free manifestation meditations you can do to raise your vibrational energy and feel more aligned with your goals. It’s a great method for those who already have a daily meditation practice, as it can easily be included in that routine.
Here’s when you take your notebook or manifestation journal and write down what you want to attract into your life. But, you have to write it in the present tense as if you’re already living your dream life in which your manifestation came true. Describe how that life looks, what you’ll be doing when the manifestation occurs; the more details, the better. Spend at least 10 minutes doing this with some climatic music in the background for some serious Law of Attraction work.
This point is absolutely amazing because it instantly can get you in a better mood and, in turn, create a higher vibrational frequency. Here, you close your eyes, maybe play some music, and envision yourself living the life that you want. It’s as if you pressed the fast-forward button and now you’re right there living your manifestation. Enjoy the visualization, daydream about the life that you’re trying to manifest, explore a day of your successful future.
Perfect for the artsy ones out there, this manifestation method is all about images. You make a board filled with what you want to attract into your life, with the images or quotes that resonate the most with it. Let’s say you want to go on a certain trip in the future, then you collect or print images of the places you’ll visit, the hotels you would want to stay at, the fun activities you’ll take part in. It’s a really creative way to manifest, and it also serves as a regular reminder, if you hang it up in your room for example, of your dreams.
And, that’s your first glimpse into the Law of Attraction. I know it can sound a little too good to be true but it’s really all about having the right mindset. It’s all about knowing when to make the shift and pull yourself out of a negative cycle to begin having complete trust in your dreams. Believe you can achieve your goals, and you’re already halfway there!
