There is a lot of buzz around the Law of Attraction these days. The massive hit movie/book The Secret took the world by storm. As Oprah jumped onboard, the entire nation became acquainted with the Law of Attraction and the secrets of manifestation. The Secret did a great job of introducing the law and showing us how we generally work against ourselves. However, many people were left wondering “how exactly do I use the law of attraction?”
There are three major factors in learning to use this powerful law to manifest the things that we want in our lives. The first are our thoughts. The things that we think about and hold constantly in our thoughts become part of our reality. However, most of us are keeping negative thoughts in our minds on a daily basis. How do we change that?
We need to begin watching our thoughts. The easiest way to do this is to note how we are feeling. When we are feeling good, we are thinking thoughts that are affirming the things that we want in our life and sending positive manifestation energy out into the universe. When we are feeling bad, that is a red flag that we are holding thoughts that are not in our best interest.
This brings us to the second important factor, our emotions. Emotions, which are triggered by the thoughts we are currently thinking, are the actual energy that give an intent (or thought) the power to manifest. By noting when we are feeling bad and then changing our thinking, we will begin to change the overall energy surrounding us. As we become more focused on thinking positive, prosperous thoughts, we will see the world around us change to adapt to our new perceptions of ourselves. In this way will our desires begin to manifest.
The third and final factor in the process of attraction is our ability to act when an opportunity is presented. In many cases, our manifestations will come about as opportunities. If we work on manifesting wealth, there may be a sudden business opportunity offered to us. If we act on that, we will do well. If we do not act on it, we will get nothing. So we must be willing to act upon whatever opportunities are presented to us for our manifestations.
Finally, once we are done sending our intentions out into the world, we must be patient and detached. Don’t focus endlessly on whether or not this will work, how long it will take, or any other doubtful thoughts. This kind of thinking destroys the work that we have done, and further instills more doubt. On the other hand, a patient, detached approach will allow our intentions to manifest, and will instill further faith in the process, which will assist things in moving faster next time. No wonder opinions about the Law of Attraction are very divisive!
Hopefully you have something to work with now. Best of luck and may all your dreams come true!
