Hello, my loves! Today I am just going to go over some law of attraction basics + how you can use it to your advantage.

also, this is my first article, so if it isn't exactly up to par, apologies in advance x.

What is the Law of Attraction?

The law of attraction is the belief that thoughts become things. If you focus on negative thoughts, you will attract negative outcomes. If you focus on positive thoughts, you will attract positive outcomes.

It is only by acknowledging that you have created everything up until now, that you can take charge of creating the future you want. — Jack Canfield

For the skeptics, the law of attraction actually comes from quantum physics. Everything is energy, so the energy that you put out into the universe, is the energy that you will receive back into your life. Everyone uses the law of attraction, knowingly or not. Every single circumstance that is in your life currently, you have attracted.

How do I use the Law of Attraction?

CLARITY
➟ The first step is to become clear of exactly what you want to attract into your life. If you are not happy with your current situation, you have the power to change it.

BE GRATEFUL
➟ Gratitude is so important. You can not expect to attract more things into your life, if you are not already grateful with what you do have. Everyone has something to be grateful for. Even if it's the little things such as your toothbrush, eyesight, or even the device you're using to read this article. You can practice gratitude by making a list of 5-10 that you're grateful for everyday.

Example: "i am so happy & grateful that _______ because _______"

or you can even say what you're grateful for out loud or even in your head.

You can also use this to write down what you are currently trying to manifest.

Example: I am overwhelmed with joy and gratitude because I finally recieved my dream car.

LIMITING BELIEFS
➟ Most of us think that we can not have certain things because of what we or others have conditioned us to believe. Such as I can't do X because of Y. For example, saying that it's hard for you to find love because you are not an outgoing person is a limiting belief. These thoughts hold us back and keep us from being the best version of ourselves. To get rid of these beliefs, you need to change your thought process and become more mindful about what you say.

AFFIRMATIONS
➟ Affirmations helps with positive thinking and can also help get rid of limiting beliefs. You can find affirmations for almost anything you want to manifest. You can find some on pinterest or even make them up yourself. examples:

  • Money comes to me easily.
  • I am a money magnet.

Also, remember to always use positive connotations. such as i am or i will. Avoid using words such as I am not or I won't.

VISUALIZATION
➟ You have to be able to see yourself with what it is that you desire. Visualize yourself receiving the money, driving the car, having your dream body, etc. Focus on the feeling that you have when you receive these things. This is setting the intention and putting in motion what it is you want to happen. If you can see it, it's already yours.

Imagination is everything, It is the preview of life's coming attractions.
— Albert Einstein

FOCUS ON THE FEELING
➟ This step is very important and also goes hand in hand with visualization. When you visualize yourself with whatever it is that you desire, the feeling that you have, is how you should be feeling right now. As I stated before, we are all energy. The universe does not know the difference between what you want or don't want, it only knows vibration. So, when you are happy, you are vibrating at a very high frequency and the more that you focus on how you feel about a certain situation, the universe will bring that exact outcome to you.

ACT AS IF
➟ Acting as if is simply pretending that you already have what you want. For example, if your desire is to lose weight, Shop for clothes in smaller sizes. This is your way of "preparing yourself" for what is it you're trying to manifest because you know for a fact that it is coming to you. If you are acting as if you already have what you desire, the universe has no choice, but to bring you your wish.

LETTING GO
➟ Once you have visualized and set your intentions, it is time to let go. Letting go does not mean that you completely forget about your desire, but that you release from the attachment of it. When you become impatient, you are giving off the feeling of lack. When you focus on this feeling, you are letting the universe know that you do not have what it is that you desire. The universe will respond to this by giving you exactly what you are putting out, so you will continue to not have what it is that you desire.

A concept that I use personally to help with detaching is pretending that I am at a restaurant and that I have placed my order. I know that what I asked for is coming, so there is no need for me to worry. You can also detach by just distracting yourself. Doing things such as listening to music, doing homework, or even sleeping is a great way to detach.

That is all for now, If you want to know more about the law of attraction I would definitely recommend watching "The Secret" on Netflix and there is also a book available. I hope you enjoyed this article or that it helped in some way. I'm planning on writing many more articles about spirituality, astrology, self development and much more in the near future.
