The law of attraction states that like attracts like. You may also see it written as LOA.
This concept is not new, but it became very popular with the release of the 2006 movie The Secret. Some critics to the movie stated that it explained the LOA poorly because it's not simply a case of "If I think myself wealthy I will be wealthy". Or is it?
Our universe as we know it is made of vibration. Matter is made up of particles vibrating at a certain frequency, and so are we. Our particular vibration changes depending on how we feel.
Our thoughts generate different feelings - i.e. a thought of "I don't have enough money" generates a different feeling than a thought of "I have enough money".
When we hold a specific feeling we vibrate at a certain frequency, and the law of attraction works in matching what appears in our reality with the same type of vibration.
Translated into our physical experience, this means that when we feel abundant we are attracting those people, circumstances, and events which match that same feeling of abundance.
We are literally creating our future at every moment - we will get to experience that which matches the vibration that we offer in the present.
In a way, yes, it is. However, there are a few other key elements that we need to understand when we want to use the law of attraction consciously to manifest what we want to experience in life.
We are actually using the law of attraction all the time, through the thoughts we have and the feelings that the thoughts generate. However, we can use the law of attraction consciously to manifest that which we want to experience.
For a start, you can aim to keep a positive mindset as much time as possible. The feelings that you offer in the present moment translate as vibrations, which attract those circumstances that will generate the same feelings at some point in the future.
It makes sense that if you want to experience love in the future, you do your best for focusing on thoughts that make you feel love now.
You can also choose to spend a few minutes daily doing things like visualizing, meditating, expressing gratitude, or creating a vision board. All these activities will help you to spend time offering a vibration of feeling good about what you want, thus bringing you closer to actually experiencing what you want.
We can see the law of attraction at work in coincidences and synchronicities, like in the case of Maria and the banana...
When I was in my twenties I worked for an important British organization. This organization received external visitors daily, for whom catering was provided.
There were always food leftovers from the catering, which we were allowed to take. One day, about midday, I took a banana from the leftovers and I kept it to eat it later.
The day went on and I didn't eat the banana. Rather than let it go to waste, I left it on my desk at the end of the day with a note, "Help yourself", thinking that maybe a colleague passing by or the cleaners would want to have it.
A few minutes later, when I was on my way out, a colleague called Maria came up to me and told me how the whole day she had been wanting to eat a banana, and then she passed by my desk and then saw the banana with the note.
She felt that it was like a gift from the universe to her; she couldn't be more surprised and pleased about this 'coincidence'.
The law of attraction is a very interesting subject, however it may take you a little time to get the hang of it and use it in your own life successfully.
I recommend any of the Abraham-Hicks books to understand the law of attraction better and to find techniques to get what you want - for instance, the book 'Ask and it is given' is a great first step towards using the LOA consciously.
Here's the one thing that you can do to ensure that you keep attracting what you want: keep in a positive state as much time as you can.
