If you Google “Law of Attraction”, you’re likely to find all kinds of websites promising you the moon and stars. They will tell you that you can attract money, relationships, fortune and fame. Then, when you click on the sites, you’ll see all these stories of success, like “After I bought this law of attraction course I made $30,000 in just 10 days!” or “After using this law of attraction book I was able to attract my dream home in just 30 days!”.
Then, when you try it out for yourself, you may realize that it’s not that simple. For some reason, a lot of marketers and advertisers have abused the idea behind the law of attraction to the point of almost making it a cult or religion of some sort. This article is going to clear up some of the misunderstandings of the law of attraction.
Fact 1: You simply will not attract something out of thin air. The law of attraction goes beyond just a course or a few months of studying and applying some positive self improvement ideas. The law of attraction incorporates every thing that you are and do and have ever done. With this being said, it doesn’t mean that if you made a mistake in the past that you can never get to a point of happiness or peace. It means that if you’ve been following some kind of self improvement course for a few weeks, months or a couple of years, that you may not see the big results you are hoping to. It means that there’s nothing wrong with you or that you’re not smart enough to harness the law of attraction.
It just means that there is always a deeper level to experiencing and developing your powers of attraction. It is much more complex than sitting for hours doing affirmations and positive visualizations. It’s more much complex then just thinking and feeling positive. These things are all excellent tools, but if you’re doing them and still not experiencing the things you’d hoped for, then you must understand that law of attraction is much deeper than that and a bit more complex.
Fact 2: Understanding the law of attraction is an eternal life-long process. You can never understand it all. Movies like “The Secret” and other self help courses can give you an idea, but the truth is that there is no limit as to how deep and how powerful the law of attraction is. The law of attraction is essentially you, me and everything in existence, and that includes ideas and thoughts. Don’t expect yourself to be a master at the law of attraction from just a short period of time.
Fact 3: While some people are able to go from 0 to 60 in just days or weeks, most of us take a little longer. Give yourself a reasonable amount of time to learn and digest new levels of the law of attraction. You may experience a time when you do everything right but there is nothing but chaos in your life. Does that mean you’ve done something wrong? Not necessarily, it could just mean that your reality is changing towards those things you want and right now you’re experiencing the transitional phase. For example, someone who is wanting to experience a healthier body may start to work out. At first, he may be really sore and experience pain. If he didn’t know what was happening, he would think that his body is failing and that there is no point in going on. After the soreness works off, then in time he begins to experience a healthier and fit body. The same thing may also be true in your case. And much like physical exercise, law of attraction works a little different with each person. Some people are able to lift just a few weights and build muscle fast, or work out moderately and lose weight fast, while others have to work at it more. The same goes for law of attraction. Some of us already have more positive perspectives of reality, so manifesting the things we desire may come easier than to someone who’s a little more pessimistic.
Fact 4: If you’re not having fun with law of attraction, you’re probably not going to get very far. The law of attraction should be named Life of Attraction. The world “law” may give off a certain idea of rigidity or punishment if something isn’t done. In truth, the law of attraction works best on fun or unconscious behavior. When you’re having fun doing something, you don’t have to think, you just do what you love naturally. It’s an unconscious behavior. This is when the law of attraction works towards your favor. If something is hard or you have to struggle, then there is resistance to the things you want. Law of attraction is always working, and it does not judge. It will not stop working, just because you’re attracting something that you don’t really want.
Law of attraction is so powerful that there is no judging of what you want to attract. And it continues to attract for you, even if you’re not consciously making a decision to attract something. That’s why understanding and constantly working with the law of attraction is something that you may want to do on a regular basis.
