What is the Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction is not a new concept. It’s always been around and it’s constantly working, whether you believe in it or not. You can’t get better at using the Law of Attraction because you’re already using it. It already does work perfectly, 100% of the time. Practical Law of Attraction helps you get better at getting into alignment with the manifesting conditions, so you can manifest your heart’s desire.

Perhaps you’ve heard it defined as “ask, believe, and achieve,” or some other 3- step process.

These featured steps are important elements to manifesting. However, it goes way deeper than that. What about action? When they say “believe,” are they saying consciously or unconsciously?

Certainly, if you focus on those three steps, it’s possible you might get results. However, if you are getting results focusing on only those three steps, then it’s because you are unconsciously also applying some unmentioned steps.

If you haven’t been getting results, then you’ll understand why as we go through the manifesting conditions.

Here’s How I Define Law of Attraction:

“Law of Attraction is when the manifesting conditions and personal qualities are developed and come into alignment simultaneously.”

Law of Attraction is always working, either for you or against you. For most people who have never been introduced to some of the concepts discussed in this guide, it’s usually working against them.

It’s an impersonal law. It’s unbiased. In other words, it doesn’t matter if what you think, imagine, feel, or believe is something you fear or something you desire, the law works the same exact way—always. It simply manifests whatever you are in alignment with.

Law of Attraction is not a quick fix. It is a way of life.

It’s not a step by step formula or process, because you are starting “the process” from where you are right now, your own unique set of circumstances.

As you explore each of the manifesting conditions, you will gain a better understanding of how you have created the life situation, you’re in now. You’ll also learn the ways to stop creating more unwanted circumstances, and ultimately create a life you truly love.

How did Law of Attraction Originate?

The New Thought movement grew out of the teachings of Phineas Quimby in the early 19th Century. Early in his life, Quimby was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Unfortunately, medicinal treatment wasn’t working.

In 1838, Quimby began studying Mesmerism. He became aware of the mental and placebo effect of the mind over the body when prescribed medicines of no physical value cured patients of diseases. From there, Phineas Quimby developed theories of mentally aided healing

It wasn’t until 1877 that the term “Law of Attraction” first appeared in print, in a book which discusses esoteric mysteries of ancient theosophy, called Isis Unveiled, written by the Russian occultist, Helena Blavatsky, where she alluded to an attractive power existing between elements of spirit.

However, there have been many references even before the term was used, that describe what we understand today.

Gautama Buddha, (who lived between 563 BC – 480 BC): said “What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.”

Empedocles (490 BC), an early Greek philosopher, hypothesized something called Love (philia) to explain the attraction of different forms of matter.

Plato alleged as early as (391 BC): “Like tends towards like.”

The Bible has many statements suggesting the power of having faith and asking for what you want, such as: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.”

By the 20th Century, a surge in interest in the subject led to many books being written about it, including:

The Science of Getting Rich (1910) by Wallace D. Wattles

The Master Key System (1912) Charles Haanel

How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936) Dale Carnegie Think and Grow Rich (1937) Napoleon Hill

The Power of Positive Thinking (1952) Norman Vincent Peale 

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind (1962) Joseph Murphy Creative Visualization (1978) Shakti Gawain

You Can Heal Your Life (1980) Louise Hay

Law of Intention and Desire (1994) Deepak Chopra

How to Get What You Really, Really, Really, Really Want (1998) Wayne

Dyer, public television special

The Secret (2006): The concept of the Law of Attraction gained a lot of renewed exposure with the release of the film and book written by Rhonda Byrne.

Since then, Law of Attraction became a bit more well-known. However, since the film represents the topic in a very basic manner with an inadequate basis for real-world application it contributes to some skepticism.

Things that Aren’t True Myth #1: The Law of Attraction Isn’t True

It always surprises me how many bright, intelligent people there are who learn about Law of Attraction and flippantly write it off as nonsense. The only issue with Law of Attraction is one of misunderstanding of what it is and how it works.

Before you dismiss the Law of Attraction, ask yourself this: Would aligning your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors with what you want help you or hinder you?

Here’s the thing, a belief in the Law of Attraction is a belief in your ability to have control over deliberately creating your reality and manifesting whatever you desire.

The idea you have a say in how your life is going infuriates some people. I can only assume this is because they are receiving some counter intentions by remaining stuck in a belief system that supports them in maintaining a victim mentality.

If you are of the opinion that what you think and feel has no bearing on your reality, you will not be able to attract results that you desire.

The mind is set up in such a way that it favors information that conforms to your existing beliefs and discounts evidence that does not.

Remember, the Law of Attraction is always working. How it works for you is up to you.

Myth #2: The Law of Attraction Is Like a Genie Granting Your Every Wish

This is the myth which continues to perpetuate Myth #1, that it doesn’t work. Since Law of Attraction does not actually work like a genie, those who go into it thinking all they need to do is make a wish and a magic genie will miraculously appear and grant their heart’s desire are setting themselves up for disillusionment.

Approaching Law of Attraction, coming from this idea you can think yourself into receiving high-ticket items, like cars, dream homes, and lottery winnings, and change your life overnight, is unhealthy. It is the very reason why critics, skepticism, and misunderstanding about this Law exist.

While it’s possible to achieve what you desire, it’s going to require much more than thinking. It takes diligent effort to grow yourself into the person who is in alignment with your true desires.

Law of Attraction is common sense. It’s a set of practical conditions the most successful people are naturally in alignment with. You need to have a clear desire and intention. Focus is required. You also need to be intentionally taking actions toward achieving what you want to create.

The more you align yourself with these conditions, the more the universal creative energy corresponds by sending you new ideas, intuitive messages, opportunities, helpful people, and other resources.

Myth #3: When Bad Stuff Happens, it is All Your Fault

No one knows exactly why catastrophic, horrible events happen to innocent, good, and well-intentioned people.

Some Law of Attraction advocates go too far and say you are responsible for every bad thing that’s ever happened to you. There are no good answers to why terrible events happen to good people. I’m talking about the likes of getting raped, having your home burn down to the ground, or learning that you or a loved-one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

You certainly have every right to feel and process all the emotions you undergo when you experience a devastating loss or tragedy. One reason people remain stuck from moving on is they did not process their feelings. You can only heal what you feel.

The Law of Attraction is not about blaming you for everything that’s ever happened to you in your life. Understand that sometimes bad things happen, like losing your job, going through a bad break-up, or not getting approved for your loan. Often enough, you can look back on those situations and see something better happened as a result, and it never would have happened had the bad thing never occurred.

What if, when bad things happened, you were to remain open to discovering how the event might play into a much grander, more intelligent plan that the universe has in store for you?

Here are a few other theories about why negative things might happen and how to deal with them when they do.

  • The truth is, sometimes we do attract scenarios to ourselves by having fears about those things happening. Negative thoughts and energies do attract negative.
  • If you believe in the concept that your soul has lived lives before this one, then you may be experiencing karma that originated several lifetimes ago. 
  • Again, if you believe in this idea that we have many lives and we create our lesson plans between lives, sometimes we orchestrate events we need to experience in this life for our soul to advance.
  • It’s completely random and we just don’t have control over everything that happens to us. But we do have complete control over how we allow it to affect us as we navigate through our future.

The bottom line is, regardless of which scenario you subscribe to, it’s tiresome and painful to try and pinpoint exactly why things happen to us. When life becomes difficult and painful, you have two options. 1) You can accept what happened; or 2) you can suffer.

Acceptance does not mean you are making the situation right or you like or want what happened. It simply means you have accepted the idea that no matter how much you dwell on it, you are not going to change what happened. Acceptance is a way of letting it go so you can make room for better things to happen.

One of the laws of nature is change or impermanence. The one constant is change. Everything and everyone will eventually die.

Make peace with the past. Accept it. Forgive it. Live in the present. Whatever happened, happened. Life is not always fair. If you are always focusing on how things were, and the injustice you feel, then you will continue to re-create your future from that state. No matter how bad it was, it is not happening now. It only exists in your memory. You do not have to let it control your thoughts, emotions, or bring it into your future.

Focus on what you have control over, which is how you choose to experience this present moment. Whatever you are focusing on, feeling, and imagining right now is what’s creating your future.
