The Law of Attraction is all about aligning your thoughts and actions with what you want to happen in your life. It practices the success principle of ‘what you think about, you bring about’. This success strategy really gained prominence thanks to the movie The Secret, which had its ‘world premiere’ in March 2006. Since then, millions of people all over the globe have applied the universal Law of Attraction to their daily lives and proclaimed that their lives have been better ever since. So, should you be practicing the Law of Attraction as well?
One of the great things about the universal Law of Attraction is that its tenets are not hard to put into practice at all! In fact, many people say that the biggest secret in the movie The Secret is that its doctrines are not classified at all! The underlying principles of the Law of Attraction have been with us, ready to be practiced, all this time. So why then have we abandoned these steps to success?
Life happened and somehow, somewhere, people started believing that they do not deserve happiness. People wake up afraid to expect the best and prepare for the worst. Do you see that this is still the Law of Attraction working? By thinking that the worst will happen, people are bringing about problems for themselves. So kick the habit! Expect the best and the best will happen to you.
That’s not to say that the Law of Attraction denies negative emotions. That would be more in line with toxic positivity. The Law of Attraction and toxic positivity both focus on the power of positive thinking, but they differ in their approach to negative emotions and experiences. It emphasizes the importance of acknowledging and processing negative emotions, while toxic positivity may deny or dismiss them. The Law of Attraction suggests that positive thoughts and feelings can attract positive experiences and outcomes, while negative thoughts and feelings can attract negative experiences and outcomes. On the other hand, toxic positivity can create a harmful environment where individuals feel guilty or ashamed for experiencing negative emotions, which can discourage seeking help or support when needed.
Practicing the Law of Attraction
Here are some simple tips so you can start living the Law of Attraction and start attracting success into every aspect of your life.
Practice the attitude of gratitude the minute you wake up.
Nothing can be a better caffeine kick than happiness so why not start your day with this Law of Attraction exercise: remember all the wonderful things you are (or ought to be) grateful for. Even on a subconscious level, a lot of people live as if they are ‘victims’ instead of ‘drivers’ of life. Avoid this trap by starting each day with thoughts of how great and beautiful your life is at the moment. This mental exercise will ‘set the stage’ for more beautiful things to come.
Pay it forward.
The universe is not all about you. The Law of Attraction is based on the universal law of cause and effect and nothing can be more positively powerful than doing a good deed for someone. You don’t have to go out and save lives, but simple things such as helping an elderly person cross the street or helping direct someone who’s lost can do wonders on two levels. First, you will feel good about yourself and if you’re happy, the universe will smile back at you in one form or another. Secondly, the person you assisted will think happy thoughts of you too, further attracting positive vibes!
Align your outer world with your inner world.
As mentioned in the movie The Secret, you cannot cheat the universe. Even if you think or say you’re ready for happiness and success, the way you live, dress, and act is the true measure. So synchronize your intentions and your actions. For instance, if you want that better-paying job, don’t just wish for it; act on it! Prepare a knock-out resume, network with other people, change your wardrobe, and dress for success! Life success is not handed out, it is the end based on your means.
End the day with ‘happy thoughts’!
At the end of the day, do this simple Law of Attraction exercise: imagine yourself living a certain ‘moment’. For example, in the romance department, close your eyes and envision that romantic dinner with your special someone (regardless if you already have a special someone or not!). Is your goal to purchase a new home? Close your eyes and picture yourself tending the garden at the back of your new home or sitting down and reading a book in your new home’s living room. Remember, what you think about…you bring about.
The Law of Attraction is one of the most powerful practices we can be made aware of. So grab this remarkable opportunity to make your life a success. Make each day count by practicing the Law of Attraction and living this success system that never fails.
