We need to talk.
After so many years and after so much that’s been said about the Law of Attraction, there are still quite a few people who are not understanding just how exactly this law works. I believe that there are people who would rather believe in some magical phenomena that can be turned on and turned off at will than come to understand that there are constant laws that exist at all times without bias to aid each and every one of us in creating the lives that we desire.
To hopefully better explain how the Law of Attraction works, this topic will be approached here in this article as simply and as thoughtfully as possible.
The Natural Realm In Which We Live
In nature, there are laws. Every farmer knows that there is a time to plant and a time to harvest. The farmer also knows that each seed is coded differently to give what it’s designed to give. If a farmer plants a seed and expects the seed to be fully matured and ready for harvest the next day, the farmer then does not fully understand the laws of nature. These laws, however, have already been established eons ago, and have always been [turned] on and working. Yet the farmer who would think that he can use some of these laws one day and not the other is not exactly approaching farming realistically. Eventually, if he’s serious about farming and wants to be a success, he or she will have to come to know the laws of nature and how they all work.
The same is also true for the law of attraction. In order for us to be a success at creating the lives we deserve, we must come to know what the law of attraction is and how the law of attraction works.
Just like the farmer, we can plant a seed of thought about wanting a new house, a car, more money, a new relationship, etc. And just like the farmer, we can really understand the law and use it intentionally to bring about the desired result.
When a seed is planted, the success of its outcome is not only determined by the proper maintenance it receives afterward but how well cultivated the land was prior to the sowing. If the land is toxic and barren, there are things that need to be done to bring the soil back to its nutrient, rich state before it can be used. Once this is done, growing a seed into a healthy plant just from the rain and the sun alone is usually all the seed needs.
Cultivate Your Mind To Get The Results You Want
Many people believe that the Law of Attraction is not “working” because they feel the life they are currently experiencing is not at all the life anyone in their right mind would ever desire. Please understand that the Law of Attraction doesn’t respond just to the pleasant thoughts that we have (which are fleeting at best). The Law of Attraction responds to the feeling or emotion that has been, over time, building up into a very strong force or momentum.
If you are always exhibiting emotions of fear, worry, anger, sadness, or any other low-frequency emotions, your emotional buildup or momentum will be strong in those areas. Your life experiences will predominately reflect those emotions of fear, guilt, and lack, that is until you decide to work on reversing that particular momentum.
When cultivating your mind, you are preparing for it to receive a thought without the automation of other thoughts being interjected in, ultimately killing off the initial thought (seed) before it’s given the chance to germinate. The mind is toxic and barren when ideas are easily stifled or unable to take root. To ensure a healthy, fertile mind, noisy, negative chatter (toxins) must be removed. To do this, you must become fully aware of when your negative thoughts surface.
Shhh! I’m Trying To Watch A Movie!
You’ve slid down comfortably in a seat at the theater, lured deep into an action-packed scene. The dialogue is great and you’re focused on the screen, making sure you don’t miss a thing. But then someone coughs and it causes you to briefly divert your attention. Ugh! What was that I missed? You quickly shift your focus back to the screen. But then someone’s cell phone goes off while another person gets up to walk out, blocking your view. You try peering around the person in a panic until finally, you yell, “Shhh! I’m trying to watch a movie!
When negative thoughts begin distracting us just like in the movie theater, we will try everything in our power to regain focus on the task at hand. Whether the task is a project at work or school or trying to meditate, thoughts that we allow to detract us away from our goal are the thoughts we need to remove in order to begin cultivating our minds.
Often these toxic thoughts that come in are dream killers. They creep in right after we plant seeds of focused intentions such as leaving an abusive relationship, leaving a dead-end job, wanting a new house, wanting a new car, wanting to start a business, etc. If we can remove these toxic thoughts and begin replacing them with healthier ones, we can begin enriching our minds causing our thoughts of intent to take root and flourish.
Enriching Our Minds To Become Healthy Soil
Just like in everything we wish to be a success in, we must practice. Practice does make perfect. If we wish to prepare our minds to receive life-producing thoughts that will take root and mature to their fullest potential, we have to strengthen our mind’s “immune system” so that the planted seeds will grow into healthy produce. To strengthen our mind’s immune system we must do several things.
- Change our diets. Yes, what we eat is extremely important as it is the foundation of how the brain will interpret the signals it receives from the gut. For instance, if the gut is healthy then most likely the brain will perform more optimally, sending healthy, intact information to the rest of the organs in the body. To ensure that our small intestines remain vital, we should always try to eat foods that promote good bacteria or flora growth. Read here for more information on your brain/gut connection and flora-producing foods.
More studies are showing that people who have a healthier gut are happier and have more clarity in their lives overall. Eating foods that kill good bacteria in the gut is now being linked to mental health issues such as bipolar, schizophrenia, chronic depression, anxiety, loss of memory, and many others. Maintaining a probiotic dietary lifestyle will require a lot of discipline but it is absolutely pertinent that it be applied.
- Learn to meditate. Changing the diet creates a more aligned brainwave pattern which makes quieting the mind easier to do. Many studies conducted today are now revealing that with meditation, the brain really does act differently with neuron synapses firing off in a more synchronized fashion.
It sounds as if just becoming aware of the change we’d wish to make will begin gently rewiring new neural pathways in our brains. I like to think of this as new irrigation channels being dug to make certain that the proper nutrition will make its way to the newly sown ideas.
- Implement affirmations daily. It’s extremely crucial that we learn to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Saying affirmations is a way of doing just this. Ultimately, we all want to get to a state where we no longer think but allow thoughts to flow to us. But until then we are going to think, so why not think about things that are good?
When we make it a habit to think only about good things we are training our focus. Training our focus preps and conditions the soil to be a healthy incubator to bring about the manifestation of healthy ideas. Having a strong focus and staying the course no matter what distractions you encounter along the way will ensure an abundant yield, whatever the desire may be.
When we’ve mastered our focus, attracting any and everything that is in our range of desires will become so simple, and so easy that we’ll wonder how was it that we so easily missed how the law of attraction was working in the first place.
How the Law of Attraction works in Science:
But okay, is it really just about focus? The answer to this question is, yes. But there is one more element to how this natural law works. Where we are daily on the emotional scale will also factor in how easily we attract the necessary components needed for manifesting our desires. Emotions like fear, worry, anxiety, doubt, jealousy, impatience, etc. will create a blockage to the flow of those natural impulses that are often accompanied by those necessary components that the Law of Attraction will use to bring everything together. If you’re blocked then you’ll most likely miss your cue to be in the right place at the right time, speaking with the right person, and/or overhearing the right information.
When you finally reach that state of knowing that what you’ve asked for is available right now and is ready for you to enjoy, you will find that not only your desires will come to you easily but that they will become a reality fast.
