Spirituality: How you can make the Law of Attraction work for you
Is it possible for us to bring love, money, happiness or any of the other things we desire into your lives through our own positive thoughts and actions? If you believe in the Law of Attraction, perhaps so! Simply put, the Law of Attraction means that certain types of energies are naturally attracted to each other. Positive energy will attract positive occurrences while negative energy will attract negative occurrences.
In terms of our personal lives, many believe that these same forces are at work as well. One great example of how well the Law of Attraction can actually work can be seen in the placebo effect. A placebo is a fake pill or cure given to someone to make them think they will get better. In one study conducted at Harvard University, researchers gave chronically ill patients harmless sugars pills which they told them would cure their ailments. Amazingly, over a third of the patients who received the fake pills claimed to have positive results from taking them. Why? The only explanation researchers could come up with is that the change in patient expectations that a new pill would actually make them better, actually did. Or, in other words, positive thoughts attracted positive results in their physical health.
So how can we use the Law of Attraction to improve our own lives? Take love for example. If we dwell on the fact that we are lonely and have no one in our lives, we are projecting a negative energy about our ability to find love. If left unchecked, this negative energy can actually permeate us, destroy our self-esteem, and make a poor impression on most everyone around us including potential romantic interests. In the end, our negative thoughts lead to negative results. After all, who really wants to date someone who lacks confidence in themselves?
If, on the other hand, we choose to focus on the positive message of having an opportunity to bring love into our lives instead, we are then instead sending out positive energy. This builds our self esteem and confidence at its core and conveys a much more positive signal to those around us. This also makes us much attractive to others including potential love interests.
To make the Law of Attraction work for us we will need to first learn how to visually place that image, picture, or symbol of what we desire out into the universe. The most effective way of doing this is through focus and meditation. If you are new to meditation, it is not difficult to learn and can be very relaxing. To start, you will need to set some time aside to be alone in a quiet space. The goal is to relax as much as possible without falling asleep, so feel free to play some soothing background music or burn a scented candle if that is what makes you comfortable. Some people even like to meditate while taking a hot bath. The objective is to forget about your day to day problems and elevate your thoughts to a more heightened spiritual level, far from bodily function.
In preparation for the session you will always want to have a firm understanding and intention of what exactly it is that you desire to attract into your life. You should always remember that the highest good must be found, and that the best results will come after. However, if you desire to influence somebody’s choice or will, you may not succeed. The universe answers most to the thoughts that have the highest frequency. Desiring to influence or control another is actually a lower frequency. Therefore, envision what you really want to attract in a way that does not break another’s desire or will. Ideally, you always want to help others instead of controlling them.
As an example, let’s look at how we would attract wealth and prosperity into our lives. As you meditate, focus on saying to yourself that “I will have enough and some for sharing”. As you relax, try to envision a golden light showering over you until it engulfs your entire body. Then, form a visual image of yourself smiling with your hands holding money. Also imagine having enough money that you can also afford to share it with the less fortunate. This will fulfill the karmic circle of energy, so it can then flow back to you.
In the end, you will learn to feel much better about yourself and your ability to solve your problems. Hopefully the Law of Attraction will work for you.
