“Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind’s eye, and you will be drawn toward it.” Napoleon Hill
I’m sure you’ve heard a lot about this law of attraction and have possibly wondered what it’s all about and how it works. The law of attraction which was very well explained in the famous and highly talked about documentary “The Secret” is the principle of attracting what we most often think and feel about, into our lives. It is a law, just like there is the law of gravity which states that we can’t jump and stay afloat without eventually hitting the ground, well this law states that you can attract anything no matter how big into your life if you feel like you already have it. Rapper Big Sean credits the law of attraction to his success in this video and has claimed to have read Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires on the subject.
Thoughts Become Our Emotions, Which Becomes Our Reality
We have thousands of thoughts throughout each day, that bring about emotions into our bodies, negative or positive whether we believe it or not. Do you ever notice in your life when you have a day where you are not feeling so good, and then you seem to keep making mistakes and just have an overall negative day? Well you attracted it. This is because one thought lead to another, and before you know it, your whole day goes bad. Conversely, you can have those other days when you wake up, you just feel good and everything seems to go right, your great day just seems to keep adding momentum and you can feel the love and positivity throughout your body and mind, likewise you attracted it. So remember it’s our thoughts which decide how we feel, and how we feel will anchor and attract our reality.
How We “Feel” Attracts Situations Like A Magnet
Most people think it’s about positive thinking, it’s not, it’s how you feel that allows attraction. This can be a very powerful tool, if you know how to apply it, which can take many books (we highly recommend Think and Grow Rich), to fully understand. In simple, think positive thoughts, which will make you feel positive emotions, which will attract positive things into your life. However, it goes even deeper than that, you have to feel like you already have whatever it is you are wanting in order for it to appear into your life. For example, if you want to be rich, you have to do what ever it takes to feel like you already have the money and those feelings will lead you to opportunities that will inspire you to make millions. The law of attraction can really turn your life around when you fully understand and grasp the concept.
The Power of Belief
So along with what we think and feel, we need to really believe, in order to achieve. Beliefs are something that are attained in our mind over a longer period of time other than just thinking positive in one single day to attract a great day. Beliefs along with our thoughts and emotions, on a larger scale create our life and allow us to reach anything we put our mind to. When you have dis-empowering beliefs, they can keep you far from your success. For example, when you believe that all rich people are greedy, then there’s a pretty slim chance of you being able to attain a ton of money from having this limiting belief. These types of beliefs need to be altered in order for the law of attraction to work harmoniously.
How To Influence The Subconscious Mind
The more complex part of this is how we deal with our subconscious thoughts, which is extremely difficult to observe because we can not pick apart or refer to that part of our brain. However, there are still many other ways that we can get to our subconscious mind such as meditating on our future success, visualizing, or feeling grateful for what you already have. Another very effective way to get through to the subconscious is to monitor what you watch, read, and listen to, so be sure not to put junk into your head from negative music, TV or movies, especially the news. Picking and choosing the friends and people we associate ourselves with is also a high priority as they can very influential to our subconscious mind as well.
Act On Your Intuitive Nudges
When you’re clear of negative beliefs, and are feeling the way you would feel if you have already accomplished what you want, you will start to get intuitive nudges from within you to act in certain ways. Whether they make no logical sense towards your dream or not, you have to act on these nudges as they some how have a way of manifesting your dreams into reality. This is where courage is required, you need to summon up enough courage to take action and trust in your intuition
So remember, an easy way to really get started and apply this tool of the law of attraction immediately into your life is to think positive thoughts, feel positive emotions and change your beliefs that are limiting you, to empowering beliefs that will serve you. After that, be ready to act when you get that nudge from within. If you do this, you will start seeing things change around you, this is where magic and miracles will happen.
