What is the Law of Attraction?

You may recall one of my past blog posts where I shared my thoughts on the law of attraction theory. Since then, I realized that the post left some of you wondering, “What is the Law of Attraction?”. In this week’s episode of Maya Monday, I break down the law and give a brief overview of how to manifest anything you want. Check out my law of attraction video below, or read the highlight points.

What is the Law of Attraction?

In short, the law of attraction is the principle that what you focus on is what you receive. For example, if you always complain about hating your job, your incompetent boss, and your annoying boss, then you will continue to have those problems. Why? The universe is continually working to bring you your desires. Even if your mouth says you want something different, your thoughts and subconscious mind say something different. I always think of this movie scene when I try to make sense of the law.

So how can you use the law of attraction to bring good things into your life? Follow along for a few tips on the law of attraction steps, or manifesting.

How to Manifest

1. Ask for what you want.

In order to receive something, you have to make your request known. It’s just like writing out a Christmas list to Santa Claus. How do you ask? Let’s go back to the first part. Whatever you focus on is what you receive, so you ask by focusing. You have devote your thoughts and energy to the idea of what you want, and you have to truly believe in it. Let’s say you want a new car. You have to use all of your senses and visualize it. What does it look like? How does it sound? What does it smell like? What does it sound like? How does it feel? If you really want it, find a car scent hanger and actually pretend that you’re driving your car. It may sound weird, but the faster you can believe in your desire, the faster you will have it. Visualization is key to the Law of Attraction. 

2. The Universe creates your desire.

This part requires absolutely nothing from you, and that is why most people find it so difficult. The universe has an unlimited supply of resources and can do anything with no trouble. All you have to do is surrender the power you crave to the universe and allow it to do its work. It’s not something that we’re used to, but figuring out the “how” is not your responsibility.

3. Receive your desires.

Finally, it is time to receive your desire! This one might seem very easy, but it can be tricky as well. In order to receive your desire, you have to be on the correct frequency. Imagine you’re in your car, and you want to listen to rap music. When you turn on the radio, you hear country. You may get upset that you don’t hear rap music because that is what you desire. However, you simply are not on the correct frequency. You have to turn your dial to tune into the rap station. It works the same way with manifestation. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to begin thinking and acting like one. Think of the person you want to become, or Future You. How do they spend their time? What characteristics and qualities do they have? What are the differences between Present You and Future You? Now you have a list of things to work on in order to raise your vibrations and get on the right frequency. There are other ways to do that as well, but we’ll focus on those in another post.

Another thing you want to do is practice gratitude. The universe loves feeling appreciated, so if you express your appreciation for the things you have, you’ll find that you manifest things a bit quicker. You’ll also find that when you are in a more positive mood, you receive more positive things. It is difficult to monitor each and every thought (we have thousands!), so focus on emotions, instead. Ask for happiness, peace, and abundance, and you manifest things that set you up for even more goodness.
