Over the past 15 to 20 years, there has been a lot of talk about the Law of Attraction. From books to online resources, more and more people are becoming aware of the principles behind it.
Could it be that people are simply looking for an answer to their goals? Or is it possible that mankind is experiencing the “awakening” that has been mentioned in prophecies and scriptures?
Regardless of the cause, one point needs to be addressed. That is, one must understand what the Universal Law of Attraction is.
There is a Universal Law of Attraction
When we refer to a Universal Law of Attraction, it is not simply the simplest version of it. Rather, we are acknowledging the existence of singular and fundamental constant that branches out from it. Proverbially speaking, it is the seed by which the tree grows from.
Now, there are many lessons and teachings in the aforementioned Law of Attraction books and resources. However, few actually give this priority over the individual offshoots. “The Secret” is, perhaps, the most popularly known source, but even it takes a lot of paths and circles in defining the Universal Law of Attraction.
Universal Law of Attraction – In a Nutshell
The very essence of the Law of Attraction – what makes the Universal Law of Attraction – is this: LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE. It is one of the basic laws of the universe that is immutable. It simply is.
It is from this fundamental tenet that you can build your manifestation miracles from. Because “Like Attracts Like”, what your thoughts and actions are determine what you attract.
Both conscious and subconscious parts of you create your reality. In every area of our lives, what your dominant beliefs are will draw similar “frequencies”.
Remember the familiar adage: birds of the same feather flock together? Or think about the concept of “karma”. It is the idea that what you receive today, are based on the actions you have made in a previous point in time, even from a past life. These are essentially representations of what the Universal Law of Attraction entails.
Once you understand and accept these principles, then you can proceed to make them work for you.
What Is Your Current Reality?
Now that you have a grasp of what the Universal Law of Attraction actually is, then it is in your best interests to build from it.
But before you excitedly go implementing the Universal Law of Attraction, you must first be aware of what your current reality is. This is necessary, for you may sabotage your efforts even before you truly begin.
Examine your current status in life. Here are some questions that you would find useful at this stage:
- Where are you now?
- What is different from this current reality compared to where you wanted to be?
- What do you believe led you to this current status quo?
- What are your current feelings about your present situation?
These may seem trivial, at first. After all, what you want is likely to change these. But one cannot materialize their desired result, if the present is not acknowledged. Essentially, the way to move forward is by looking back.
Now that you know where you are coming from, you can develop your next steps in using the law of attraction. This logical progression is both practical and effective.
Do Not Find Fault from the Outside
You have found the answers to where you are and why you want to change these for the better. But did you really? Examine the answers you had for the questions posed. Is any of it putting the responsibility due to an outside force?
Here is an example. If you are in a job that you don’t like, who or what is the reason for that? Is it because of your condescending boss? Or is it because there are no other jobs to get?
In both cases, the answers are outside. But this should not be the case. You have to accept responsibility that the situation is because of you.
You might think this is counter-productive. However, that is far from the truth.
By acknowledging that whatever negative situation you are in is due to your own thoughts, actions, and vibrations, you reclaim your power over your life.
Did you not, at one point, want that job? Perhaps it was due to necessity, but you still desired to have it at some point.
Before you can make positive changes using the Universal Law of Attraction, you must first be able to accept that the situation you are in is by your own hand. Only then will you be able to begin to make lasting positive changes.
Thought + Emotions
Here is another element of the Universal Law of Attraction. Remember that everything is ENERGY. Your body is energy. Your thoughts and emotions are energy. The only difference is they are in different vibrational frequencies.
Given this fact, you have it within you to dictate the essence of these energies. Going back to the Universal Law of Attraction principle of like attracting like, then positive thoughts and positive emotions attract positive outcomes.
An important point to note here is that both thought and emotion have to be in positive. Simply thinking about positive situations will not create them.
The absence of positive emotions will not produce the desired result. Because of this, ensure that when you visualize your goals to attach the appropriate positive emotions when you do.
This is where a lot of beginners in trying to apply the Universal Law of Attraction. Relying on simply positive thinking alone is insufficient. You MUST power it with positive emotions. If the positive chain of thought is your vehicle, your emotions are the fuel to get you to where you want to go.
One Universal Law With Many Facets
The Universal Law of Attraction is a constant. But within this constant are other laws. For instance, there is the Law of the Mind (that all things in reality are thought patterns) and the Law of Polarity (that there is duality in all things). Acceptance of the One Law is accepting all the other laws that derive from it.
You have only begun your journey into the wondrous and boundless possibilities that are yours by birthright. Use every opportunity to learn and to hone your positive vibrations. In time, you will learn how to fully utilize the divinity you are connected to.
