We all know that practicing meditation helps ease stress and calms the mind. But did you know that there’s a link between the Law of Attraction and meditation?
Law of Attraction meditations combine both the power of meditation with the focus and emotional state required for successful manifesting. When combining a meditative state with a Law of Attraction focus, the result can be quite powerful.
This is because meditation brings about a brainwave pattern known as the Theta state of consciousness.
Theta is the border between the conscious and the subconscious worlds. While in a theta state, the mind is capable of deep and profound learning, healing and growth. In a Theta state, the subconscious becomes very susceptible to reprogramming, improving recall, and long term retention.
Why is this important for manifestation using the Law of Attraction?
Well, our subconscious is incredibly vast, and also incredibly powerful. While the conscious mind only functions when a person is actively forming thoughts, the subconscious is “on” every moment of our lives, working in the background.
However, the subconscious mind does not know the difference between what is good or bad by itself. It needs to be “taught”, and meditation is the best way to do it.
So when you practice Law of Attraction meditations, you’re actually programming your subconscious mind to operate in the right environment for making your manifestations a reality!
That’s why this article offers 10 law of attraction meditations you can do anywhere. No matter what is going on in your busy life, I hope that you find a way in this list that works for you
How to Use Meditation for Law of Attraction Manifesting
There are different ways to exercise manifestation using the Law of Attraction, but the basic requirements for it are threefold:
Breath is the fuel that makes the engine of human life run. That’s why proper breathing is crucial if you want to meditate effectively.
Breathing during meditation should be done at a definite, yet controlled pace. Also, focus on breathing using your diaphragm instead of your nasal cavity. Draw in breath from your abdominal area.
One good way to start is by following the 3 quick breaths, 1 long breath pattern.
Here’s how to do it:
Inhale and exhale 3 times quickly, and then inhale and exhale as long as possible. There are other patterns that you can try, but this works great for beginners.
Minimizing or Eliminating Distractions
One common misconception about meditation is that you should not form while doing it. Feeling like if your head isn’t empty you’re not doing it right is a surefire way to drive yourself crazy!
But get this – even thinking about “nothing” is a thought. The truth is that it’s fine to have thoughts while meditating, the trick is you have to separate yourself from the thoughts you form. What I mean by this is that there should be no judgment to the stray thoughts that come to your mind while deep in meditation. Just let them come and go.
The most basic way of doing this is to simply close your eyes. Although it’s entirely possible to meditate with your eyes opened, closing your eyes eliminates visual stimulation, and helps keep your attention centered on what you are manifesting.
Here is where your Law of Attraction manifestation truly comes in to play. As you meditate, focus on the thing that you wish to manifest in your life. Is it an ideal love life? Perhaps you wish for a more rewarding career? How about independent financial wealth? Or perhaps you seek to live a life of adventure full of travels to places you have never been before?
As you practice meditation, visualize and feel the emotions you would have as if the thing you want in your life was already here.
Practicing focus for a clear mind
Let’s face it – the world is a world full of distractions. There is quite simply a LOT of “noise” out there. And when I say “noise”, I don’t mean the musical variety! In fact, the most common type of “noise” is the visual kind. You could be busy doing something and then something else catches your eye that completely draws your attention away.
Focusing on your goal is the key to Law of Attraction manifestation. But in today’s busy world, it can be harder to focus than ever. The challenge is finding the right way to focus that works for you.
With that in mind, let’s jump in to 10 Law of Attraction meditations you can easily do throughout your busy week for better focus, enhanced calm, and more effective manifesting!
10 Law of Attraction Meditations You Can Do ANYWHERE
Now that you’re clear on these basic principles of meditation, here are 10 powerful Law of Attraction meditations you can do wherever you may be to align your vibrations to your higher self.
Now, don’t practice these meditations when you are doing something that requires concentration (for instance, don’t try this while driving!).
Try to dedicate at least 5 to 10 minutes to these each time. The more you practice these Law of Attraction meditations, the easier it will get.
Do you seek healing, or do you simply want to improve your current health? During the breathing practice done through meditation, visualize yourself being full of life and free from any illness or physical issues. The breath-work alone can improve your present condition; regular and consistent healing meditation would have long term benefits.
How to do it:
- Sit in a comfortable spot, relax, and close your eyes
- Start breathing slowly and deeply by inhaling through your nose, filling your lungs up with air, and holding it for a few seconds before exhaling through your mouth. Breathe like this at least 3 times.
- Focus on your breath, and let go of feelings of negativity or tension.
- Visualize the specific part of your body that you want to heal, and send a gentle beam of healing energy washing over it.
- Consider using a positive mantra as you do this, such as: “I am free of illness of the body, mind, and heart.”
- Scan your body mentally for any feelings of tension, energy blocks, or physical pain. Project feelings of love and healing wherever you feel they should go.
- Remind yourself that you are human, you are well, and you are whole.
- Once you feel ready, open your eyes, stretch slowly and continue with your day!
Negative memories and stimuli affect our manifestation practices. These blockages hamper, if not completely prevent our manifestations from being achieved. Practicing a meditation that aims to release these will greatly improve the speed and success of manifesting.
How to do it:
- Get comfortable and close your eyes.
- Focus your breath into deeper, longer breaths… in through the nose, out through the mouth. Do this for 3 or 4 breaths.
- In your head (our out loud if you prefer), repeat the word ‘release’ over and over.
- Let thoughts that pop in come and go… gently bring your mind back to your mantra: release.
- As you repeat your mantra, focus on releasing tension in your body. Feel your muscles start to relax and your blood pressure start to lower.
- You may feel sleepy, if you can nap for a few minutes feel free to do so. Sleep is the body’s ultimate healing elixir.
- Keep repeating the mantra release as feel the tension ease. If you feel tension in a particular area of your body, focus on it as you repeat your mantra.
- Do this for as long as you please. Some times you may need a few minutes to release your tension and negative energy. Sometimes you may need longer. It’s all ok.
- When you feel ready, open your eyes, stretch a little, and resume your day.
Also known as Vipassana, this meditation is done to look “inwards”. It is a transformative meditation that intends to develop higher emotions, such as compassion, love, and wisdom.
How to do it:
- Find somewhere comfortable to sit, and close your eyes.
- Breathe normally and place your attention at your belly.
- Let yourself become aware of the sensations in your body as your breath causes your abdomen to rise and fall.
- When your mind wanders, gently bring it back to your focus on your breath rising and falling, keeping your attention in the present moment.
- Empty your mind of all memories and thoughts. Seek to forget everything except for the single movement of your breath happening right now. Don’t think about it – just know it.
- There will be times when a noise or thought distracts you – just label this as ‘hearing’ or ‘thinking’ and let it go. Then bring your attention back to your abdomen. Label sensations you feel the same way eg: ‘itching’. This trains your mind to identify and categorize different stimuli.
- When you’re ready to open your eyes, repeat the word ‘opening’ as you slowly do so. Then when you choose what to do next, repeat the word ‘intending’ before slowly and mindfully resuming your day.
- Continue this practice for the rest of your day by being mindful of what is going on. Do one thing at a time, and label your thoughts and other stimuli as described above. This helps cultivate insight and mindfulness in your day to day reality.
Related to the aforementioned release meditation, forgiveness meditation centers on being able to forgive the self from past mistakes and harmful actions. And in so doing, you can also forgive others, projecting the meditation outwards.
How to do it:
- Settle somewhere comfortable, and take a few calming breaths
- Visualize someone who has hurt you, either knowingly or unknowingly. If visualizing them upsets you too much, choose a symbol or word to represent them.
- Label the feelings that rise inside you as you think about this person. Anger, sadness, helplessness – gently call them by name.
- Bring awareness to the physical sensations inside you, especially in your neck and abdomen.
- Keep the person in mind and say to yourself, “As best as I can, I forgive you. I wish you joy and love.” Keep repeating for a few minutes.
- Feel the burden of your negative emotions begin to lift. Experience lightness inside of you. It may take a few repetitions of this meditation to start releasing your anger, but it is worth it to free yourself from the hold this person still has on you, and the negativity it causes. Remember negativity blocks Law of Attraction manifestations – it is not an open and welcoming state for the Universe’s energy.
Microcosmic Orbit Meditation
This is a very old, but powerful Taoist meditation to focus the Qi and bring greater energy, ease, and peace in both body and mind. Ideally, this is done by standing up, visualizing a light that moves from the top of the head to the tip of the toes. A good allegory is visualizing it like an “ultrasound scan”.
Here’s how to do it:
- Still your body, calm your mind, and regulate your breath.
- Turn your attention within, visualizing a pocket of energy in your belly button region.
- Keep focusing on this pocket of energy, seeing it as a clear and bright, golden light, totally pure. Focus on your navel region in this way until you feel your pocket of energy glowing.
- Guide this energy down to your coccyx, and let it snake around your perineum and back, then send it rising up to where your ribs meet your spine, then right up to the back of your brain (the ‘Jade Pillow’).
- When the energy is in the center of your brain (the ‘Nirvana Chamber’), press your tongue against the roof of your mouth. It may feel hot or swollen – this is a sign the energy has reached the Nirvana Center.
- Next, focus the attention between the eyebrows (the ‘Celestial Eye’), and draw the energy there. You might feel tingling or throbbing – this means the Celestial Eye is opening.
- Let the energy sink down through your palate and tongue, down your throat and to your heart. Draw it through your solar plexus, past the navel, and begin another cycle up from your coccyx back to your brain.
- Regular practice of this technique will free up your Qi, or life force energy, bringing your body in balance and contributing to better organ function.
It is often said that gratefulness is the key to powerful manifestation. In this form, you are centering your focus on gratitude to God, the Universe, Source Energy, or whatever you choose to identify the divine creative power in all things.
Here’s how to do it:
- Get into a comfortable position, and take a moment to center yourself.
- Breathe deeply through your nose, and out through your mouth.
- Choose something you’re grateful for. It could be as simple as having food on your table, a cool breeze on your face, someone to love, or anything you really want to connect with.
- Complete this mantra: I am grateful for _________
- Repeat your gratitude mantra 10 times. Each time you repeat it, try and think of something else you’re grateful for.
- When you’re ready, tell the Universe ‘thank you’. Take a moment to reflect on all the good things in your life, both big and small.
- Open your eyes, take a deep breath, stretch your muscles and resume your day.
This meditation is one of the oldest and most powerful forms. In essence, you are focusing on one of the chakra points with each stage of your breath-work: the Crown, the Third eye, The Throat, The Heart, The Solar Plexus, The Sacral/Stomach, and The Root Chakras.
How to do it:
- Sit in a comfortable position with your spine straight.
- Slowly focus on each part of your body, starting with your feet and working your way up. As your focus moves up your body, feel each part relax and let your stress melt away.
- Focus on your breathing, try to keep it steady and deep. If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to where you want your focus to be.
- Visualize the beating of your heart and the perfect function of your body. See how your breath sustains your entire body as a whole. Become aware of your breath as a life-giving force.
- Imagine the life giving energy as you breathe it in. See it as a yellowish colour that slowly envelops your entire body. Imagine your body growing stronger as this life force spreads around it.
- Energize each individual chakra with this life force by starting with the chakra in your lower back, and imagining a clockwise swirl of energy slowly spreading and getting stronger.
- Move this swirling life energy up through your solar plex chakra, heart chakra, throat, head and finally your crown chakra. Feel each chakra being infused with energy. Take your time and do this at your natural pace.
- Visualize all your chakras being fed at once by this energy coming up through the earth, and in through your breath. See your chakras becoming light and bright, infused with life force energy.
- Open your eyes and relax a couple of minutes, paying attention to your body and how energized you feel.
- If you choose, spend some time repeating a Law of Attraction mantra while you’re connected with this amazing life force energy.
This meditation is more about enhancing one’s awareness of their body, mind, and spirit. Zen meditation focuses on the “here and now”. This enhances manifestation by eventually becoming able to unite the past, present, and future selves.
Here’s how to do it:
- Sit with your hips rolled slightly forward, allowing your belly to relax.
- Sway gently from left to right a few times to centre your spine.
- Keep your spine straight, and your head straight over your shoulders. Your nose should be in line with your navel.
- Lower your eyes until you’re focusing about three feet in front of you. Keeps your lips and teeth tightly closed, and your tongue sitting at the top of your mouth (you might have to suck to create a vacuum in your mouth to do this).
- Rest your hands on your lap or thighs comfortably, palms up. Then put your left hand on top of your right, with the tips of your thumbs lightly touching.
- Breathe in through the nose, and out through the mouth, letting the air fill your abdomen each time before it’s slowly released.
- Count one on your breath in, two on your breath out, three on your breath in, four on your breath out, and so on. Do this up to ten. If you forget the count, or your mind wanders, that’s ok. Just return to your focus, and begin counting again.
- Do this for as many times as you feel comfortable. When you’re ready, slowly open your eyes, take a deep breath, and embark upon the rest of your day.
Audible stimulation helps immensely with Law of Attraction meditation. There are different forms of music that you can choose, but often bowls, gongs, or nature sounds are the ideal choices. One thing to note is to use headphones to avoid disturbing others during your practice.
How to do it:
- Choose meditation music that helps you relax. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a meditation CD, you can choose any music with a slower tempo, or that helps you unwind.
- Get into a comfortable position where you can listen using headphones for a little while. Try to avoid lying down lest you fall asleep!
- Close your eyes, relax your muscles, and practice breathing through your diaphragm.
- Try and journey into the music, letting yourself be carried away by the sounds. Let your mind loosen and relax – if you feel yourself slipping into thoughts about your day or other distracting things, just guide it gently back into the musical landscape.
- Quiet your inner voice and try to ‘just be’. Fully immerse yourself into the music and let the world slip away.
- When you’re ready, or when the CD is over, gently bring your mind back to the present. This is a great time to focus on a Law of Attraction mantra or visualisation while your mind is in its relaxed and open state.
A great meditation style that you can do anywhere is using a mantra. Mantras can be any word or phrase that you use to focus on what you are manifesting. One of the most commonly used mantras is “OM”. Om can mean many things, but it is generally associated with the divine self and the universe.
How to do it:
- Choose a favorite word, mantra, or poem for your meditation. Mantras are ideal because the contain only a few words, so you can repeat them easily. Choose something from the heart that you’ve been focusing your Law of Attraction practice on.
- Sit comfortably, finding a position that’s aligned with the natural curve of your spine so you can stay still. Close your eyes and take long, deep breaths until you feel nice and relaxed.
- Repeat your mantra slowly and steadily, staying in unison with your breath’s natural rhythm. You can say half of it as you inhale, and the other half as you exhale, or all at once – whatever feels comfortable for you.
- After about 10 repetitions, start repeating your mantra silently by moving your lips, then recite another 10 times without moving your lips.
- Continue for as long as you have set aside for this meditation, or as long as you feel comfortable. Then come out of the meditation by taking a few deep breaths and sitting quietly for a few minutes as you re-enter the world.
There are many other styles of Law of Attraction Meditations that you can learn about and practice, but these 10 can be done most anywhere, whether you are at the office on a break, at the beach, or in the mountains being one with nature.
What matters most is that you are performing Law of Attraction Meditations as often as you can and with consistently positive vibrations.
