The Law of Attraction – What It Really Is and What It Is Not
It is somewhat amazing to see how much talk there is about the Law of Attraction and how few people actually know about what it is. The Law of Attraction is not a spell that you use and things begin happening that way. It is not that you chant ‘like begets like’ a thousand times a day and see things happening the way you want. If the Law of Attraction were so simple, we would have already witnessed the world as a much better place by now.
People explain the Law of Attraction in various ways. The commonest definition you will find will be something like this:-
“If you strongly believe that something should happen, it will certainly happen.”
A sentence couldn’t be any simpler, but you will immediately realize that this raises more questions than it answers. The question of desires is the most important. Is it only what we desire and think about strongly that will happen? Or will things that we don’t desire also happen if we somehow think strongly about them? Then there is also the question of internal conflict of thoughts. At times, there could be situations where we think equally in both ways. For example, we may think that a job could be ours or not. So how do we apply the Law of Attraction in such a case? Or what do we do when we are thinking strongly about something and someone else is thinking strongly about the exact opposite thing? What will happen in that case?
In order to be able to reply all these questions, it is important to first understand what the Law of Attraction really says.
Notwithstanding the various ways in which the Law of Attraction has been defined, we can break things down in the following four elements:-
We must know exactly what we want.
We must begin a thought process for it, and begin vociferously asking the universe to make it happen.
We must then visualize a situation wherein we already have what we are hankering for, and we must live in that reality.
At the same time, we must not attach ourselves to what might happen. We must only think about having it. There is no room for apprehension.
In these articles, we are going to expose various aspects of the Law of Attraction and see how we can apply it in one of the most important areas of our lives – attracting money. Can one really become rich by just thinking vividly about it? We need to understand the law better and learn how to implement it in order to get these answers.
