How does law of attraction really work?

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 2 10

Most people have heard or even watch the famous movie "The Secret". They also have a good idea about the Law of Attraction and how it works. However, despite their knowledge, they are unable to manifest their desires in their lives. Why?

The reason is quite simple. The Law of Attraction clearly states that in order to manifest a desire or a goal in life, its important to have an emotional connection with it. You need to "want" the goal rather than merely achieve it. There is a world of difference between wanting something and simply trying to achieve it. When you want something, you are engrossed in thinking about it, looking at it and dreaming about it. You are using your physical, mental and emotional energy to attract it. On the other hand, when you want to achieve something, you may not want it but you would like to have it because of some logical reason.

For example, lets say there are two students in a class. Both of them are good performers and achieve high grades. Student A wants a scholarship because he has this intense desire to study further and there is no way he can do that without the scholarship. On the other hand, the student B wants the scholarship because it signifies an achievement. He does not really need it. So, who do you think will actually end up getting the scholarship? Naturally, student A because he is using all his energies to attract the scholarship. He can only think about achieving it and does not think of any thing else.

If you want to attract something in your life, you need to summon all your emotional and mental energies to achieve that goal. You cannot think of situations like "what if". Your should have complete conviction and faith that you will achieve the goal. This will help you to attract and manifest your desires in your life!

This is the most honest answer I have yet seen for manifesting. I have embraced the concept of Law of Attraction. However, I was disgusted with the commercialism of the Secret.

Even though I have manifested several goals, I have been more like student B, lately.

Your article gives me a reminder of the basics.

Hi Mitch,

Thank you for your comment. I think people have not really understood the true meaning of law of attraction. The Secret makes it sound simple, yet it requires a lot of practice. You actually need to be in a positive frame of mind all the time....which is not impossible but takes time to achieve!
What do you think?

Hi Aanya,

It depends on your disposition and general outlook on life. I found it easy to be in a positive frame of mind without really trying.

On the other hand, it is also easy to fall into a negative rut. I've done that, too. It is during this phase that one's beliefs are tested - not just for Law of Attraction, any strong mental picture of your reality.

For me, the solution to the negative rut was to stop beating up the commercialism of the Secret and to refocus on being positive.

Surprisingly, this is a bit harder, due to my allowing others to control my thinking.

Hi Mitch,

Yes, it depends on what we have been fed on earlier in life. Faith or Fear.
People who grow up on faith are people who manifest faster than those who operate on fear

Hi Aanya,

That is an interesting proposition. Fear is another word for all of the negative energy surrounding us and Faith is another word for positive energy.

I love this concept. I have a friend who has worn out the book. I do believe that all of your energies need to be focused in the direction of your desire. (you know who you are) For the most part I'm to scattered to make this work. But I'm working on it. Truly enjoyed reading this article.
