When people first hear about the law of attraction, there’s often a bit of confusion. On the surface, the law of attraction sounds as if it could be summarized as “wish really hard and you’ll get what you want”. Anyone who’s had any experience in reality can tell that the mere idea of such a thing is ridiculous.
So obviously the law of attraction is complete bunk, right? Not at all! It’s just that it doesn’t necessarily work the way people like to think it works, and it certainly doesn’t work the way the friend of a friend explained it after seeing it on a television show that one time.
So how does it work? And how can you get any benefits out of it?
The Law Of Attraction
One of the biggest problems with explaining how to use the law of attraction is that people don’t always explain it very well. To be fair, it’s an easy concept to misunderstand. Many people hear the concept of focusing on intention and desire, and think that if they just meditate and pray they’ll get what they’re hoping for.
That’s not how it works. Rather, the law of attraction is another way of helping to focus your mind on becoming goal oriented rather than hope oriented. It’s not a matter of wishing and praying really hard. It’s a matter of getting a clear concept of what you want, a solid understanding of what that means in a practical sense, and then deciding what steps you’ll take to make it happen.
Using The Law Of Attraction
Once you understand the nuances of the law of attraction, using it becomes much more simple. Since it’s not just a matter of wishing, that means there are several steps you can take to help the law of attraction make an impact on your life.
First, get a concept of what it is you want. Not just in a general sense, but in a more specific sense. For example, don’t just think “I want to have lots of money”. That’s not actually a goal, so much as a fantasy. A goal might be “I want to have a certain amount of money in my savings account” or “I want to be able to fulfill my financial needs each month and still have money left over”.
By having a more specific idea of what you’re trying to attract, you can get a better idea of how far off you are. If you want to have a certain amount of money in your savings account, you can then take a close look at your finances, both how much you make and how much you spend each month. That way, you can get an idea of what you might need to do in order to meet that goal. Read this Manifestation Miracle book review to learn more about how to set goals properly.
The law of attraction does work, but it works because it’s a guide to helping you be more aware of your own desires and the work needed to fulfill them. So don’t go into it thinking that you can wish really hard and get what you want. Plan on doing some work.
