Blogger, Cari Vollmer has this to say about it:
‘If you're dedicated to your personal growth you have probably run across the phrase, “Law of Attraction”. It's been written about in books, old and new, and is the main focus of the hit movie, The Secret.
I have to admit, I love this topic but for a long time I was utterly confused about how to make the Law of Attraction work for me. The concepts seemed so intangible I had a hard time grabbing hold of what exactly I could do to unleash the Law of Attraction in my own life.
But like anything you look at for awhile, the pieces suddenly started making sense, and I found the intangible was really quite tangible. I also noticed how natural it is to use the Law of Attraction. In fact, we use it all day long! However, many people still aren't attracting what they really want, maybe even you. That's because the Law of Attraction is generated by two things: thoughts and feelings, and for many their thoughts and feelings feel beyond their control.
The Law of Attraction can simply be described as Like Attracts Like. "Like" what? Like energy. In other words, like energy attracts like energy. This can be proven scientifically, but I won't go into the details of how this works. It just works.
I know this can be hard to accept. It's hard to accept because we are a world that has been taught things happen "to us" and that many things are "beyond our control". And yet, if you analyze why you have the life you have, and you're completely honest about why you have it, you will see a pattern. That pattern will show you that everything you have in your adult life is a reflection of what you think and feel, the majority of the time.
Using the Law of Attraction consciously may require a shift in your belief system. A shift from, "look what's happened to me", to "now that I'm an adult, I create my own life experiences". Once that shift is made you become the conscious creator of your life. You have taken 100% responsibility for your life and what you create in it. YOU are in the driver's seat, and that's a very good place to be. This shift in perspective is empowering. That's because, if you are the creator of your life, you can take full responsibility for the good things that happen to you and the bad things that happen to you. This is a powerful place from which to live your life. If you can take responsibility for the bad, you gain the power to change what you don't like. On the other hand, if you don't/can't take responsibility for the bad, you will remain a victim of your circumstances and have a very hard time creating the life you most want.
The Law of Attraction is activated by your thoughts and your feelings. Everything in the world is made of energy, including your thoughts and feelings. When you have a thought or feeling you send out an energetic vibration. Because the Law of Attraction tells us what you send out comes back, you will attract back to you things of similar vibrational energy. Like Attracts Like.
Your negative thoughts attract negative thoughts. Your positive thoughts attract positive thoughts. Your discontent attracts more discontent. Your joy attracts more joy. What you attract will always mirror what you put forth. That is how you can see the Law of Attraction working in your life; just look around at what you've attracted. Do you like what you see?’
