The law of attraction is a Universal principle that states that whatever you focus on and whatever you put out there into the world in form of thoughts, words and actions will come back to you in one way or another, whether it be good or bad. This principle has also been taught in the Bible in Galatians 6:7 where it states; ...for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Some people may question this theory and say it's simply hocus pocus. Think about this... Would you say that your thoughts and actions are mostly positive or negative?
Think about it honestly. Now consider the state of your life - would you say it's generally positive or negative? Now consider the state of those you know are doing well in life - would you say they have a positive or negative attitude toward life? Now you may say that the reason they're positive is because their lives are going good, but I can assure you that it's the other way around. Their lives are going well because they have adjusted their attitudes toward life and have focused their energy on things that were positive.
Consider this... Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you've told yourself you wanted a certain type of vehicle and all of a sudden you see those vehicles EVERYWHERE when just prior, you hardly ever noticed them? This is how the law of attraction works. It's not that they weren't there in the first place but that your focus wasn't there. As soon as you began focusing on that vehicle, it made itself present in your life. You are now opened to view it.
Here's a fun little exercise I do with my clients and friends to illustrate this point.
(Listen to this exercise with the audio version above)
Now for our little exercise
Take a sticky note and write something down that you would like to have but it doesn't seem likely that you'll receive anytime soon. (Don't go too far fetched yet. Keep it realistic.)
Example: I have a Sony Vaio Duo 11 laptop-tablet hybrid and I am enjoying every minute of it.
Simply choose what you want and write it down on your sticky note. This would be worth going out and buying a new sticky note pad. Once you've written it down, post it somewhere you will be able to see it numerous times daily. If you need to, write it down on multiple sticky notes and post them throughout your house.
Make sure to read it everyday, even multiple times daily, and work on trying to believe you already have it in your possession. Keep doing this for 90 days and see what happens. I can bet you'll have the thing you wanted or at the least a form of it and will be enjoying every minute of it.
Try it out! What have you got to lose?
