Understanding the Law of Attraction is the key to creating the life of your dreams
The Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the universe. Just like gravity, it is always in effect, always in motion. It is working in your life at this very moment.
Simply put, the Law of Attraction says that you will attract into your life whatever you focus on. Whatever you give your energy and attention to will come back to you. So, if you stay focused on the good and positive things in your life, you will automatically attract more good and positive things into your life. If you are focused upon lack and negativity, then that is what will be attracted into your life.
You are always in a state of creation. You always have been. You are creating your reality in every moment of every day. You are creating your future with every single thought: either consciously or subconsciously. You can’t take a break from it and decide not to create because creation never stops.
How the Law of Attraction operates
Here’s how it works:
Like attracts like. If you are feeling excited, enthusiastic, passionate, happy, joyful, appreciative, or abundant, then you are sending out positive energy. On the other hand, if you are feeling bored, anxious, stressed out, angry, resentful, or sad, you are sending out negative energy.
The Universe, through the Law of Attraction, will respond enthusiastically to both of these vibrations. It doesn’t decide which is better for you, it just responds to whatever energy you are creating, and it gives you more of the same. You get back exactly what you put out there. Whatever you are thinking and feeling at any given time is basically your request to the universe for more of the same.
Because your energy vibrations will attract energy back to you of the same frequencies, you need to make sure that you are continually sending out energy, thoughts, and feelings that resonate with what you want to be, do, and experience.
What you are
You are energy. Pure and Simple. You are made up of the same stuff as the sun, the moon, and the stars. You are walking, talking bundle of intelligent energy in the form of human body.
You are connected. You are connected to everything and everyone. You are completely unique piece of a much greater whole, an integral part of the cosmos. You are a ball of energy in a much larger energy field. The wisdom of the entire universe is yours for the asking.
You are powerful. You are far more powerful than you realize. You are creating everything in your life. You have the ability to change your life. You have the ability to create your desired future. You have unlimited potential!
Who you are
Thoughts are things. Your thoughts are not just wispy little clouds drifting through your head. Your thoughts are things. They are actually measurable units of energy.
Every single thought you have is a statement of your desires to the universe. Every single thought you have generates a physiological change in your body.
Thoughts affect your body. We know from polygraph, or lie detectors tests, that your body reacts to your thoughts. They change your temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, muscle tension, and how much your hands may sweat.
Your emotions are the key
Your feelings are part of your internal guidance system. When you are feeling joy and a sense of expansion, it simply means you are on course–the things you are focusing on, the thoughts you are thinking or creating, the ideas you are entertaining, and the activities you are engaged in are actively moving you in the direction of your purpose, dreams and desires.
When you are feeling anger, sadness, depression, and hopelessness–any feelings that give you a sense of physical contraction–then you are thinking thoughts and attending to things that are not taking you toward your purpose, dreams or desires.
