I have always been interested in the Law of Attraction, watching countless Youtube videos and researching it online. It wasn’t until last week that I decided to order the book ‘The Secret’ – the book I had heard so many people who practised the Law of Attraction talk about, including Oprah Winfrey and Jim Carrey – and really start to understand what The Secret meant. I decided to make a series about the Law of Attraction on this blog, but for those of you who don’t know what it is, this post explains it all.
The main principal of the Law of Attraction is simply – ‘like attracts like’. What we think manifests in our lives, so if our thoughts are negative we will have negative life experiences, and vice versa. But this isn’t where it ends. You can actually use the Power of the Law of Attraction to manifest things into your life – more money, better health, happiness… Now lets get into the ‘science’ behind the Law of Attraction. We are all made of energy, everything around us is energy – we are a powerful magnet in the Universe and when we emit negative thoughts, we attract more of the same ‘like’ thoughts that are on the same same frequency as us. For instance, do you ever find that when one thing goes wrong in your day it seems to have a knock on effect on everything else? This is usually because you tend to dwell on that one negative experience and so you draw more towards you. Quantum Physicists tell us that the Universe in its entirety was all begun with a single thought – if life was thought into existence why can’t your life be thought into existence? Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, a Quantum Physicist, lecturer and award winning author puts it simply: “Quantum physics really begins to point to this discovery. It says that you can’t have a universe without a mind entering into it, and that the mind is actually shaping the very thing that is being perceived”.
“If you see it in your mind, you’re going to hold it in your hand”, Bob Proctor. The Law of Attraction is more than making yourself feel happier by thinking positive thoughts. You can actually use the Law Of Attraction to bring things into your life. In other words, your thoughts become things. For example, if you want to earn a certain amount of money, you need to visualise as though you already have it – how would you feel, what would you spend the money on – as a result you are constantly sending out this frequency and magnetic energy into the Universe, and you will attract things on the same frequency as you. In this case, the sum of money you want. As soon as you start feeling wealthy in every aspect of your life, you draw in more abundance and you are open to experiences that will give you this abundance. Your future thoughts are creating your future life.
Millions of people who use the Law Of Attraction have transformed their lives, but one of my favourites is actor and comedian, Jim Carrey, who speaks about the Law of Attraction publicly and is a huge advocate (check out his interview with Oprah on Youtube). Jim Carrey started his career as a struggling actor, with little money. He talks about how he would visualise abundance, having people he admired tell him they loved his work, and being respected in his profession. He wrote a cheque to himself for $10 million, and dated it for three years time. Three years later he made $10 million on his film dumb and dumber. He talks about how you create your own reality, if you can see it, you can have it, but more importantly, you have to believe it. Carrey used to tell himself, ‘its mine, I just don’t have a hold of it yet’. Carrey is a huge inspiration for me and one of the reasons I chose to buy “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne.
Its not just Jim Carrey and the general public who have used the Law of Attraction; prominent people in history, such as Edison, Einstein and Beethoven all understood it and used it to their advantage. Even if you are feeling somewhat sceptical – what do you have to lose? If you are unsure where to get started I recommend buying ‘The Secret’, doing further research online, and keeping up with my blog series.
