The law of attraction (LOA) is the belief that the universe creates and provides for you that which your thoughts are focused on. It is believed by many to be a universal law by which “Like Always Attracts like.” The results of positive thoughts are always positive consequences. The same holds true for negative thoughts always leading to bad outcomes. But the LOA is much more than generalizations; thinking about red Lamborghinis will bring you red Lamborghinis – always. To the believers, questioning the validity of the LOA is akin to heresy and blasphemy; it creates religious fervor. To the uninitiated, it may seem silly to discuss even the possibility that such a law could exist.
Each one was mesmerizing. Captivating speakers, from Joe Vitale to Jack Canfield and Neale Donald Walsch to John Assaraf. Fascinating to watch. They spoke to the impact the law of attraction has had on their lives and the lives of thousands of others. Then, explanations based in “science” were proffered. Because, for us to accept something as law, we need proof. It needs to work all the time, regardless of belief, for all the people.
But till then I’ll continue to feel disgust towards such people who say they have had spiritual experiences and live on another spiritual plain and then come down and offer a course to us mortal humans that will change our life for just $35 per month. If someone is really enlightened he would spread his message for free because that would be the spiritual thing to do. Can you imagine Buddha or Jesus starting a course on spirituality for $35 per month!
Arielle Ford is a nationally recognized speaker, publicist, marketing expert, producer, and author of several bestselling books, including The Soulmate Secret. She is now on a mission to make sure that everyone who desires to spend their life with a soul mate knows that it’s not only possible to find that person but highly probable if you commit a little time, energy, intention, and attention to your love life.
Finally, and this is the part most people forget, take action. You can’t say you want $50,000 one month and then expect it to just show up in your bank account if you aren’t working or taking the steps to build your business and sell your products or services. Take action that feels good to you — aligned action, if you will. While you are taking action, the Universe is seeing that you are doing your part to create your intention, and she, in turn, will do her part in bringing your intention to you.
Be as clear as a laser beam. The ‘’ideal’’ effortless and conscious manifestation should look like a laser beam. Laser beam is 100% focused on one goal with all its energy and purity. We have to be certain and focused just as the laser beam is. If there is anything holding you back from believing or focusing on your goal then this something will be stopping your from manifesting your desire. I know that it’s very difficult to be crystal clear and focused but also shorter periods of time can do the magic because it brings up back to what I wrote earlier — conscious decision can create miracles. If we decide with all our will and focus then we can change an unwanted outcome into something what we want instead.
It’s difficult to imagine that thoughts and feelings can have an effect on the world around us. Fortunately, advances in technology and science allow us to visibly and immediately experience the effects of our thoughts. Just like watching an apple fall through the air, there are experiments that demonstrate the immediate effects of thoughts and feelings.
If you think that once you have money, you will become stronger, you’re crazy. Absolutely deluded! More likely — if you actually did manifest money from that kind of vibe — you’d grow even weaker. This would be a bad outcome for you, even though it seems like what you want. You’d be a weak-minded, weak-hearted person with more money, and you’d still see the money as more powerful than you, even while it’s in your possession. You’d then become attached to it and afraid of losing it because you’d still mistakenly see it as a power source. It would become a source of security for you, a constantly vulnerable one. The more money you had, the more paranoid you’d become about losing it. This would really mess you up big time. So be very, very glad that you naturally attract less money when you think of money as a power source. If you invite money into your life from that crazy frame of giving away your power, then money will become your Master, and you will be forever its slave. Don’t even go there!
Before creating CE I worked in finance for a short period of time. I was using the LOA to attract money into my life so I could one day impact the world and become rich within a certain company. I had several deals on the table that were all on the edge of closing and making me a very large sum of money, but suddenly they all fell through. At the time it was frustrating that this would happen, but my soul and life had a very different path. I ended up leaving finance shortly after, as my personal journey was unfolding quickly. CE got started and became what I do full-time. Now, I have the money I require to live and am able to do projects that impact the world, but it’s all coming through a very different avenue than in my past.
Thank you for writing this so clearly and from the things happening in my life I think it must work. Angel numbers have been repeating in my life for over a month now since it first happened when I prayed for a sign to know if “Home with God” was genuine. I wrote a post about it on linkedin I was so certain that received an answer. Sonce then I see angel numbers everday and it’s so wonderful to hear how many people do and I think it must be a sign of the awakening. Abraham Hicks says it’s a sign of being in alignment with the universe. I’very seen a lot of Angel numbers around Abraham so I think ‘they’re’ genuine too. (If Wayne Dyer’s recommendation doesn’t conVince you. I’very had a few interesting experiences with the numbers. The other night I was half way through brushing my teeth when I had an urge to stop and look at the time floss still in hand. Sure enough the clock was 2.22, not even the correct time. It had flipped ahead.
Lovely beginner’s article. I would also add to this article that all matter being energy can be attracted by our own energy- that energy we call emotions. We should idntify our emotions and where they are felt- Anger in the head or the heart, love in the head or fear in the stomach. We should then master those emotions by recreating the ‘feeling in the body’. For example, if we are not feeling loving, but angry we should push that anger down from the head to the heart and change it from a pressing and painful to a fluffy and open… Now – after you have mastered to willingly and consciously managing the body energies, now you are ready to begin manifesting. Also, I would add that it is good to write a precise ‘shopping list’ for the universe. The more precise, the longer it takes to organize, but the surprise and mix comes out really well. By long it could mean seconds or years, depending on your belief. A million is as fast as a button
If you choose an amount that feels way out of reach, make it smaller. If the amount you have chosen feels too small and that you will still be wishing you had more money after it comes, then make it bigger. Most importantly, whatever amount of money you are choosing to have, mean what you say. This is so simple, but this is where most people fall down and the rest of their efforts don’t yield successful results.
Great article! I feel exactly the same way. I wrote a similar article about The Secret and the so-called Law of Attraction back in September called What to Do When The Secret Doesn’t Work”, partly because I was frustrated by how many people were spending hours sitting around doing nothing but thinking about the things they wished they had, and partly due to an ongoing annoyance at the self-help industry’s misuse of words like “quantum” and “vibration” to make their pseudoscience seem legitimate. What’s even more frustrating is how many people buy those claims without ever questioning them.
With all of this differentiation comes a wide-ranging approach to one common theme that binds us all: money. Money, in fact, is simply a story. It’s the most successful story that humanity has ever created. Beyond the invention of language, which enabled communication, money has enabled commerce, and has moved us beyond merely bartering for, and exchanging goods and services as we once solely did ages ago.
Thanks for your comments. Since you obviously have advanced knowledge on how to use a law of attraction, I assume that you have achieved all of your goals and fulfilled all of your dreams. Now you are a very rich millionaire trying to help the rest of us. Actually, you wouldn't be doing that because as LOA founder Wallace Wattles said "do not talk about poverty...do not spend your time in charitable work,...all charity only tends to perpetuate the wretchedness it aims to eradicate."
Manifest Money Meditation mp3. This meditation download is the best meditation for helping you coax your subconscious to gently open up and make change. It includes money affirmations to manifest money as well as ones that "target" many of society's lies about the lack of money and poverty consciousness that we absorb from the majority of the population.
The Law of Attraction is among the most popular of the Universal Laws. Advocates of this mind-power paradigm generally combine cognitive reframing techniques with affirmations and creative visualization to replace limiting or self-destructive ("negative") thoughts with more empowered, adaptive ("positive") thoughts. A key component of the philosophy is that in order to effectively change one's negative thinking patterns, one must also "feel" (through creative visualization) that the desired changes have already occurred. This combination of positive thought and positive emotion is believed to allow one to attract positive experiences and opportunities by achieving resonance with the proposed energetic law.
For each of the goals, ask yourself what is your level of belief that it would be manifested in the next 10 days. In case, your belief is not at level 8 or above, then scale down the size of the goal. For instance, if you are OK with an intensity of 8 to 9 with the goal that you shall be invited for a sandwich and coffee at Starbucks but you are at about 5 or 6 that you’ll receive an order of 5,000 dollars. In that case, check your level of belief at 4,000 dollars, if you find it to be 7 may be you still need to lower it to say 3,000 dollars.
When I tell people that this is what it really means to believe in a law of attraction, they don't believe me. They say, that's ridiculous. We don't control everything in the universe. But you are a perfect example of the negative, blame the victim side of the LOA. I understand, appreciate, and respect that maintaining this perspective is consistent with your beliefs in the LOA. My personal belief is that this is not healthy for you, others with whom you connect, or for society in general.
The Law of Attraction is a deep subject and you seem to only have a very superficial understanding of it paired with a closed mind. The reason most people aren't excellent at it is that most people have very deep seated beliefs about limits and have a lot of fearful thoughts that they pick up from society. Even babies pick up and mimic the negative moods of those around them.
At this point I should add that The Secret is not only drivel—it's pernicious drivel. The obvious question that arises from its claim that it's easy to get what you want, is: Why do so many people get what they don't want? As Byrne writes, "Imperfect thoughts are the cause of all humanity's ills, including disease, poverty, and unhappiness." Yes, according to The Secret, people don't just randomly end up being massacred, for example. They are in the wrong place because of their own lousy thinking. Cancer patients have long been victims of this school of belief. But The Secret takes it to a new and more repulsive level with its advice not just to blame people for their illness, but to shun them, lest you start being infected by their bummer thoughts, too.
3) Follow your heart. If there’s something you feel inspired to do, do it. If there’s something you don’t want to do, don’t do it. You don’t have to kiss 100 frogs; you don’t have to go out to meet people, go on online dating sites, or do anything that does not feel right. If you are the kind of person who likes to stay at home, your soulmate could literally have a crash on your yard! It’s happened before. Only do what you want to do and feels right!
Create a list of specific affirmations that align to your desired amount required and for what types of requirements. Practice them daily perhaps a few times a day to bring that positive flow of energy into your life to manifest it. Ex. I have $10,000 to take my family to Tahiti and stay at a five star resort. Another example, I attract financial prosperity and abundance in the areas of most important to me.
This Full Moon in the opposite sign of Taurus brings its themes to the equation. This sign is practical and simplified. It is associated with physical things, beauty, and stimulating the senses. Taurus is about the natural world as well as food, money, values, worth, and resources. It can be slow, thorough, indulging, deliberate, reliable, cautious, yet lazy and procrastinating. As an Earth sign, Taurus is grounded and realistic.
As someone who is consciously focused on manifesting your soulmate, you too must recognize the powerful influence your thoughts and feelings have on your point of attraction, and do your best to keep them positive. I know; the process of magnetizing your soulmate can get discouraging at times. But if you’re approaching it from the mindset of “it’s been a year and it still hasn’t happened,” you’re living in the reality of what’s missing. The universe simply can’t add more love to your life when you’re focused on the love you don’t have. Like the old tale of the farmer pulling up the newly planted seed to search for evidence of growth, the very act of “searching” evokes a feeling of desperation that blocks the natural flow of love. But if you can shift your focus to magnetizing your soulmate rather than “looking” for him or her; and if you can adjust your emotional state from impatience to savoring the waiting, love will blossom in its own time, and in colors and fragrances that will both surprise and delight you.
Well, sure if ya want to fight it, fight away. Look for the color blue, you’ll see it everywhere… even places you have never noticed before. Look for bad things in your life, you’ll find them. However, if you look for positive signs, positive actions, opportunities, they all start to appear. IS it a “Law of Attraction” ? or , is it a tuned awareness ?
It’s difficult to free yourself completely from doubt, fear or feeling as though you don’t deserve something. Your instinct might try to combat those feelings using negative thoughts like, “Don’t be afraid” or even direct conflicts like, “You deserve this.” Unfortunately, such methods are ineffective and simply don’t work because they reinforce negative thoughts and feelings.
In choosing what you are to desire, act within reason, but go after the best. If the full power of desire is applied upon all the elements of your mind and character, what is latent within you will be aroused, developed and expressed; you will become much more than you are and thereby will not only desire the best, but be able to be of service to the best. And this latter fact is important. When we desire the great and the wonderful we must ask what we have to give the great and the wonderful in return. It is not only necessary to get the best -- to realize our ideal, but it is also necessary to be so good and so great that we can give to the best as much as we are receiving from the best.
I think what makes success in general is a little bit of attraction and mostly attitude. I do think that life gives you opportunities in subtle ways like syncronicities, but later it’s up to you to take advantage of them. However, I also think that if something is really not meant to be, no matter how much you want it, it won’t come or it’ll come in the wrong form.
Focus on understanding your part in this overall process, rather than feeling guilty or ashamed. Recognizing how your fears have manifested in your life does not mean that the bad things in your life are your fault. It simply means that the Law of Attraction has responded to the signal you sent out. Just acknowledge that the system works and your new awareness will guide you. No need to shame yourself or even feel responsible.
You might believe that you can get a new job because you’ve seen others do the same. However, you may not expect to get a job in that you have yet to put a time stamp on the manifestation of it. Truly, God has the best timing, but your real expectations will be relevant to your day to day activities. That may look like you keeping your phone volume up so you can hear it ring when the new job calls. Maybe you print out your new resume in advanced because you want to be prepared for the interview. You might even have picked out your outfit to impress yourself and your new boss.
