What Is the Law of Attraction and How Can It Change Your Life?

Filed Under: Mindfulness at 11:19 am | By: Mary Nason, Contributing Author

Everyone wants to live their best life, but many people often find themselves asking, “How?” Turns out, the key to living your best life could be through the Law of Attraction.

What Is the Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction (or LOA) is a philosophy based on the concept that like attracts like. The LOA mindset dates back thousands of years in many cultures, from sages like Aristotle and Plato to present-day self-help gurus. It proposes that our thoughts directly influence our life experiences. Choosing positivity attracts the good. Focusing on negativity invites the bad. Practicing this ideology can help us improve health, achieve goals, and get what we want out of life. It’s a fascinating mentality that gets stronger the more it’s used.

Mastering the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction involves focusing on what you want, rather than what you don’t want. The clearer you are about your desires, the better LOA works. For example, while better health is an excellent goal, you’ll want to break it down into specifics. Concentrate on an improved immune system, stronger physique, or better eating habits. Most importantly, avoid complaining because it shines a spotlight on exactly what you don’t want more of.

Of course, you also need to take the actions necessary to support your dreams. LOA can respond in unexpected ways. But, it’s not supernatural. Think of it as a path that’s already there for you, instead of a door that appears out of nowhere. It can help things come to you more quickly and easily… but, only if it’s your destiny in the first place.

The secret for mastering the Law of Attraction is attitude. It’s about acting like, and believing, you already have what you want… that you placed your order and it’s already shipped! It’s like the old adage, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” That’s what LOA is all about: injecting the future into the now. It’s not wishful thinking, it’s faith.

7 Law of Attraction Techniques to Try

Whether you’re seeking to manifest abundance, money, success, love, relationships, or health and happiness, there are many practical and simple ways you can activate the Law of Attraction:

Fake It ‘Til You Make It

Pretend that you’re already what you want to be, or that you already have what you desire. Imitate the qualities you want to see in yourself. Then, you will be able to manifest them in your daily life. For example, even if you don’t feel confident, hold your shoulders high and act like you are. Other people pick up on that vibe and mirror it back to you.

Practice Visualization

A potent technique for success, many athletes use visualization to prepare for competition. It’s as simple as gifting yourself some time to luxuriate in a daydream. Envision what you want to attract. How will you look? How will you feel? What will you be able to accomplish? Don’t force the images; just have fun with it!

Have an Attitude of Gratitude

Maintaining thankfulness for what you already have opens the door for abundance. You might try keeping a LOA journal and fill it with positivity. Write down 10 things every day that you are grateful for.

Banish Your Negative Inner Voice

Find ways to quiet that tiny heckler who lives inside your brain. You know, the inner agitator who tries to tear you down? Yep, that guy. Loving self-talk can reprogram that voice. Speak to yourself the same way you would speak to a good friend in need of support.

Give Yourself a Pep Talk

Affirmations are a forceful catalyst for mental change when rooted in truth. You can repeat “I am happy” over and over. But, if that wee brute inside your head doesn’t believe it, there will be no progress. Use realistic affirmations, such as, “From now on, I choose to notice things that make me happier.” Your inner naysayer will have trouble arguing with that.

Keep an Open Mind

Many practitioners experience synchronicity and coincidences. Pay attention to those. Be willing to accept LOA’s help in whatever form it arrives. Your desire to eat cleaner might come in the form of a dinner invitation to a new vegan restaurant. Be open to new things.

Find Your Inner Buddha

Buddha spoke of the Law of Attraction, although he didn’t call it that. “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” But, let’s face it, most of us aren’t Buddha-level enlightened. So, for today’s modern ethos, let’s re-imagine a pure mind as an uncluttered mind. Meditation is a great way to experience a calm mind, free of pervasive negative thoughts. Meditation can also show us how we tend to magnify and multiply our negativity. LOA helps us to expand our positivity and transform our life experience into a joyful one.

Ready to change your life with LOA? Shift your mindset. Focus on your goals and dreams. Activate the rules of attraction by practicing any method that helps you feel and believe that you already have what you desire.
