Why all the hype about the Law of Attraction (LOA)?
What the heck is the Law of Attraction all about anyway?
Have you tried applying LOA but nothing has shown up in your life worth celebrating?
Do you wonder if you are doing something wrong or missing the point?
Exactly how does the Law of Attraction work?
If you have struggled with understanding the Law of Attraction, then this blog will help you gain a better understanding of one of the most intriguing Universal Laws, so read on my friend…
Law of Attraction 101
The Law of Attraction (LOA) is one of 12 Universal Laws.
LOA has gotten a lot more attention in recent years with the movie ‘The Secret’ and Abraham, who is channelled through Esther Hicks. You can view their videos and recordings on youtube.
In the simplest most basic terms, The Law of Attraction states that,
‘like attacks like ‘
Now, if you have ever tried to work with the Law of Attraction unsuccessfully, you will understand how opposite to simple the LOA can seem to be.
The Foundation to Understanding ‘like attracts like’
We live in an attraction and energy based universe so undressing the LOA is key to understanding not only how the universe works but also how we work in our own lives, who we really and who we show up to be in this life.
Knowing who you are, your beliefs and fears and having a deep connection to self, determines exactly what you will manifest when using the Law of Attraction.
Understanding how the LOA works demands a level of understanding of self that many of us may find difficult. But, it doesn’t have to be.
There is a lot more to this law than meets the eye.
Read on and start manifesting consciously…
How to Make LOA work FOR You
When you put your desire out into the universe, LOA states that you will get it. It comes into your reality almost immediately, now you may not be able to hold it or see it yet, but energetically it is there.
Like attracts like – right?
So when you’re ‘asking’ for something you really want or desire, you have to zero in on what you are feeling while you are asking for your desire. Whatever it is that you are feeling when you ask, that is exactly what will be created.
So let’s use a typical example. Let’s say you ask the universe for more money. You put it out there with all your desire and intent. You say “Universe give me more money.”
Let’s also say that you need to pay bills, you are broke, you are stressing over the lack of money in your life.
The universe only understands and responds to feelings and emotions, so the feeling behind your desire is actually lack, the absence of money, stress, maybe even desperation.
So that is what the universe will give you: more lack, more stress, more desperation
Let’s say you are casually asking for more money. You are pretty well off and well, it is always nice to have more money. So you put it out there. A mediocre feeling behind your desire will result in a mediocre response. You will simply get more of the same back.
The Law of attraction works and responses to feelings and emotions ONLY.
Be Honest About Your Feelings
When you want something bad enough, your primary most passionate emotion is the wanting of it and that is exactly what the universe matches or exactly what the universe will bring to you.
In fact, the universe will bring you more of that same feeling, the feeling of wanting, so you end up never actually manifesting the desire or object of your wanting because at the root of this desire is a belief that it doesn’t exist (if you are wanting it so badly, you obviously don’t have it – right!).
The Law of Attraction really does work, but it requires a deeper understanding that rips into the heart of your beliefs, who you are and how you show up in your life and the world.
This Law also challenges any preexisting beliefs you may have. You may not even know you have certain beliefs about the very things you are asking for. If you are not clear on this, you will further derail manifesting what you truly want.
If you are not manifesting the things you truly desire, you are likely focusing on the feeling of its absence and/or you may also have some limiting beliefs that are blocking your creations.
How to Convince Yourself that You Are Not Lacking
Image you already have it lol!
The best way to get into the feeling of what you desire and get off the feeling of the wanting of it is to pretend that you already have what it is that you desire.
Now, you really have to feel the feeling of already having it! You have to literally ‘Jeddah mindset yourself’ into believing this. You have to literally trick yourself into believing it is already here.
Imagine and visualise the fact that you are already enjoying it, it is already part of your reality.
Back to Our Example
Imagine how you would truly feel and better yet ‘act’ if all your bills were paid.
Feel and visualise a massive shopping spree in Europe. Whooo Hoo! and you bought all the shoes and clothes you desired. You also have enough money in the bank to keep you going for ages and well life is pretty hunky diddley dander, thank you very much!
In fact, you are so happy, and you are feeling your way into this manifestation so well, you plan a party for all your friends and celebrate! I mean it, start now and send invitations! PARTY!!
So if you want a new job, the best way to manifest that is to amplify the good feelings of being successful in your current job. You can also apply these same skills to relationships (that will be the topic of a new blog coming soon!).
Or if you don’t have a job Jeddhi mindset yourself into being in your new job already. Believe that it has already happened (be sure you do not think about or feel or focus on the fact that you may be broke and unemployed).
You have to keep this feeling of already having it intense, fresh and passionate.
Every day you need to believe it and carry on with life as usual and focus on positive thoughts around your desire, as much as possible.
Your full passionate focus on this will give you results but do not diffuse your manifestation by starting to feel pissed off when it doesn’t happen or make decisions about when it should all show up. No, no you have to let the universe deliver your desires to you in its perfect timing.
Essentially you need to get yourself out of the way and just celebrate having it all already.
For more strategies, read my blog, “How to use the Law of Attraction to create What You Want”
So don’t focus too much on how to get the ‘the new job’ or ‘more money’ or you risk igniting some resistance. Keep your focus and the object of your desire general.
Going general (see my free download “The Science Behind Stepping Into you for more details on going General) is a great way to feel better in almost any situation that you are feeling resistance about. If you focus too much on something and get too specific, it would be very difficult to keep the momentum of it fresh, believable, positive feelings and emotions flowing and growing.
By getting too specific in your desire, your mind could start to fixate on how you are going to get the thing you so specifically want. This is dangerous and opens you up to produce a feeling of lack and disbelief.
Connect With your Feelings
Now, I know all this might sound a bit weird, but put in its simplest form, the Law of Attraction will bring to you AND is bringing to you right now whatever it is you are feeling. Ah ha!
That is why I spend a lot of time talking about your feelings and emotions in my free downloads because they are truly the key to all your dreams, wishes and yes – your manifestations.
If you want to know what and how you are manifesting so far, just look at your life. Your own life will mirror back to you exactly what you have created so far, based on the emotions and feelings you are radiating right now! If your life is a mess… well guess what… yeah…. you got this, I don’t even have to say it anymore.
Whatever it is, you manifested it, baby. So suck it up, wake up and get that shit sorted out first!
Isn’t life grand…!
Ok, so that is the Law of Attraction. I will be writing much more on this topic in future blogs… because it is the thread that weaves its way through everything.
Next, it is good to see the other Universal laws and how they all connect together.
The 12 Universal Laws
Like anything, when you study something out of context, you really are not getting the whole picture and the same is true for the Law of Attraction. There are 11 other Universal Laws that all work together and are connected. Let us look briefly at these other Laws and how they connect to LOA. I have used information from, ‘One Mind – One Energy, the Power is Within.
1. The Law of Divine Oneness
This law states that we live in a world where everything is connected to everything else. Everything you do, think, say, feel, believe is connected to all people, life forms, the universe and beyond. If you ever doubt this, look at new scientific research and evidence presented by Gregg Braden, Lynne MacTaggart Bruce Lipton, Caroline Myss, and Joe Dispenza.
These new progressive scientists/researchers show how you are not separate or isolated from anything in world or the universe. We are all connected.
2. The Law of Vibration
The law of vibration serves as the foundation for the Law of Attraction. Quantum Physics has proven that everything is energy. We are energy and everything around us is energy. Everything in the universe moves and vibrates, nothing is at rest. Even the solid matter around you is vibrating and moving when you look at it deeply at the subatomic level.
3. The Law of Action
The Law of Action must be applied in order for us to manifest things on earth. Therefore, we must engage in actions that support our thoughts, dreams, emotions and words.
4. The Law of Correspondence
This Law states that the principles or laws of physics that explain the physical world – energy, light, vibration, and motion, have their corresponding principles in the universe. “As above, so below”.
5. The Law of Cause and Effect
This Universal Law states that nothing happens by chance or outside the Universal Laws. Every action has a corresponding reaction or consequence and we “reap what we have sown.”
6. The Law of Compensation
This Law is the Law of ‘Cause and Effect’ which is applied to blessings and abundance that are provided for us. The visible effects of our deeds are given to us in gifts, money, inheritances, friendships, and blessings.
7. The Law of Attraction. See above
8. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
This is a powerful Law. It states that all persons have within them the power to change the conditions in their lives. Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones; thus, each of us can change the energies in our lives by understanding the Universal Laws and applying the principles in such a way as to create change.
9. The Law of Relativity
This Law states that each person will receive a series of challenges for the purpose of strengthening their light within. We must consider each of these tests to be a challenge and remain connected to our hearts when proceeding to solve these problems. This law also teaches us to compare our problems to others’ problems and put everything into its proper perspective. No matter how bad we perceive our situation to be, there is always someone who is in a worse position.
10. The Law of Polarity
This Law states that everything has an opposite. We can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental vibrations.
11. The Law of Rhythm
This Law states that everything vibrates and moves to certain rhythms. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development, and patterns. Each cycle reflects the regularity of God’s universe.
12. The Law of Gender
This Law states that everything has its masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) principles, and that these are the basis for all creation. The spiritual Initiate must balance the masculine and feminine energies within herself or himself to become a Master and a true co-creator with God.
These laws govern the universe and everything in it – including us.
Understanding these laws and how they work gives us the basic guidelines to, “The rules to the Game of Life”. These Laws also help us to understand how to change our personal frequency so that we are in harmony with these laws.
Some people are ignorant of the universal laws and as a result, they are unconscious creators of their own reality. Sloppy, random, reactionary thinking is dangerous to your soul and spiritual development. When our minds are left to run amock, we become consumed by lower level dramas that keep us from aligning with higher energies.
I encourage all of us to be conscious of what we are creating. The more authentically we move through our shit, and start feeling really good about our lives, the sooner we can start creating stuff that is grounded in love and compassion And that my friend is what will ultimately bring peace and stability to our world.
