The Law of Attraction is one of the most simple, powerful, well-known, and most misunderstood spiritual laws today. This law states that there is a power within you to attract and manifest your deepest desires. Everybody has this power and it is full of unlimited potential.
Quite often, we are told to eliminate "limiting beliefs" in order to be able to manifest our goals and utilize this Law of Attraction. The problem with this method is that when we spend a lot of time focusing on these beliefs, we may find that there are even more limits appearing in our lives. Why is this? It’s because we get what we focus on.
I read an article recently that said that by setting goals or having a desire to attract good into our lives may somehow run against what "the universe" hold for us. I do not believe that "the universe" has "a plan" for us. I believe that we are masters of our own lives. We are here on this earth to explore and experience our divinity in human form. The universe accepts our thoughts and projections and does our bidding, without question or judgement.
If we define the law of attraction as the ability to attract into our life whatever we focus on, then, as I’ve mentioned, the dark side of this, is that if we focus on nothing, then we manifest a whole lot of nothing. Also, if we focus on limiting beliefs, lack, negativity, failure, etc., then we get a whole lot more limiting situations that support our limiting beliefs, lack, negativity, failure, etc..
What if you think that you have tried to activate the Law of Attraction, and found that "it didn't work". You made your affirmations, set your goals, and “put it out to the “Universe”“ and “nothing happened”. If you make any one of the many mistakes people typically make, you are actually proving that the Law of Attraction DOES work. You are attracting what you are thinking about. If you are thinking negative, self-deprecating thoughts, that's what you are putting your energy into. If you are coming into your goals from a state of lack, that is what you will get more of.
So, what do we do and how can we turn this Law to work in our favour?
The solution isn't just to have blindly happy thoughts and hope for the best. The solution is to take baby steps, have a firm belief in ourselves, and have a clear picture of our lives. If we change our way of thinking, then we change what we are focusing on. When we do that, we change the results that come into to our lives. We also need to have a clear appreciation and gratitude for the good things that do come into our lives. We need to notice our wins. When we do that, the subconscious learns that what its IT’S doing is working and helps us get more of that.
Start by envisioning your life in the way you would most like to see it. See yourself as in your ideal situation. You could start with a simple visualization. Something like seeing yourself in your ideal job, or lifestyle. Now, take the action steps to get on the road to making it happen. You will eventually get 100% "buy-in" from your subconscious. You will be proving (again) that the Law works.
There is more to it, of course. We cannot simply dream our ideal situation into reality, but we can set up our sub conscious to help us achieve our goals and help program our minds for success, however we define it.
It is not an instant, quick mix, recipe. It takes regular practice and daily concrete steps towards our goals. After all, if you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.
