It has been said that the Law of Attraction has been known about and practiced by the most successful people since ancient times. Recently it was made popular by Rhonda Byrne and her book The Secret.
What is the idea behind the Law of Attraction, and how does it work? How to use it to manifest your desired reality?
The Law of Attraction states that like vibration attracts like. Your reality mirrors your beliefs, thoughts, and emotions.
To consciously practice the Law of Attraction, you need to become mindful of your thought patterns and observe them closely, practice gratitude, admit to yourself that only you are the creator of your reality, rewrite your story, and visualize your dream life.
If you follow these steps and take an inspired action that aligns with your goals, you will make the Law of Attraction work for you, and your dreams will become a reality.
It is easy to blame things on fate and simply float down the stream in life. It is much harder to step into your power and be determined to become the best version of yourself.
However, it is not only possible but also quite simple when you educate yourself on how the Law of Attraction works. Then you can consciously choose what to attract into your reality.
The steps below will help you use the power of the Law of Attraction to create your most beautiful life and manifest your dreams!
9 Steps To Practice the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction claims that like frequencies attract like frequencies. Your inner world of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions attract the experiences in your life.
Think of your mind as the projector of the movie you are watching – your life. When you change the DVD you are playing – you change the movie you are watching.
If you desire something but don’t experience that in your reality yet, it means there is something within you holding you back.
Maybe you are not ready for the reality you consciously desire, or some part of your consciousness sees your present situation as a comfort zone that will be dangerous to leave.
Here you will learn some of the most powerful techniques for discovering your subconscious patterns that are sabotaging your success and not serving your highest good.
Follow them closely to rewire your mind for happiness and success!
1. Observe Your Thoughts
To master the Law of Attraction, you have to become fully aware of the thoughts that are unconscious thought patterns running in your head throughout the day.
Your thoughts direct your emotions, and your emotions create your reality. Give yourself a week to thoroughly observe your thoughts.
Take notes throughout the day. You can even set the alarm every hour, and when it goes off – write down the thoughts you were just thinking.
We attract the reality we focus on. If we are guided by fear of the future, if we focus on negative ideas or rethink regrets about our past, we will only attract more negativity into our lives.
The way we experience the world is shaped in our early childhood. If our parents tend to have a negative outlook on life, we take over their way of thinking and also start to form a negative perspective.
2. Practice Gratitude
When we practice the Law of Attraction to improve our lives, it is easy to start focusing on things we feel we are lacking and therefore trying to manifest. However, if we focus on lack and imperfection, all we will experience and receive will be more lack. Whatever we focus on expands.
The more you focus on what you already have, the more abundance you attract into your life. Create your gratitude journal and take notes each day about things you are grateful for in your life.
Don’t only think about those things but allow the positive feelings of gratitude to take over you. Make this a lifelong habit. It will help you switch your focus and teach you to focus positively.
3. Take Ownership of Your Life
As long as you view your life as something that is happening to you, you will see yourself as a victim of random, external circumstances. Many of us have the destructive habit of blaming our spouses, parents, bosses, governments, or others for mishaps in our life.
This attitude makes us powerless and attracts more situations that make us feel like we are not the owners of our life.
Every experience you attract has resonated with you on some level, and you have invited it into your life, consciously or subconsciously. Learn to recognize your power.
To do this, look at every situation you find yourself in as a message from the universe. Learn to decipher them. Journaling or contemplating are the best ways to do this.
Whenever something negative happens, instead of reacting or blaming someone else, ask yourself first:
- Is this a repeating pattern in my life?
- If my Higher Self sent me this situation, what would be its intention?
- What can I learn from this situation?
- What are the positive aspects of this situation?
This will empower you tremendously and help you realize that you have more power over your life than you often realize.
4. Recognize Limiting Beliefs
Our life experiences define the way we see the world. They also constrict our viewpoints, and throughout our lives, our perspectives can become more rigid. This is how we form limiting beliefs. We also pick up limiting beliefs from society and our parents as we are growing up.
Often we are not even aware we have them, but they run the show from behind the scene. We simply don’t dare to dream big as we believe those dreams will be impossible.
This way, we limit ourselves and our potential. Journaling can help you a lot with discovering your limiting beliefs.
- Do you believe you are too old, so you won’t be able to achieve some of your dreams?
- Do you believe you lack talent, skills, knowledge, or other traits?
- Do you believe you are restricted by other circumstances?
Be as honest with yourself as possible. Limiting beliefs limit your dreams; therefore, they limit your reality. You will be able to transcend and transform these beliefs only when you will recognize them.
5. Rewrite Your Story
A great technique that will help you transform your life story with the help of the Law of Attraction is rewriting your story. Think about experiences in your life where you didn’t receive the support, love, and care you desired.
Chances are these experiences left a negative mark on your perception of yourself. This is especially true if you keep playing these stories over and over in your mind. It means your subconscious mind has not fully processed these experiences.
Take your journal and rewrite each of these situations. Imagine that these experiences played out differently and had a harmonious and positive outcome. Write about these in detail.
Your subconscious mind will get a lot of benefits from doing this and will feel ready to let go of the negative situations from your past.
6. Visualize Your Dream Life
To make the Law of Attraction work for you, you have to be clear on what you want. Be clear on your desires and the life you want to live.
After following the previous steps, you should allow yourself to dream and not restrict yourself by limiting beliefs or negative experiences. Daydream about what you truly desire. Think of things and ideas that truly inspire you.
Answer these questions for yourself:
- What would make your life truly worth living?
- What brings you the most joy?
- When have you been the happiest in your life?
- What are your most important values?
- How do you want to be remembered after your life is over?
Your answers to these questions will reveal what is the most important for you.
If you are a visual person, you can create a vision board that inspires you and reflects the life you want to live.
Make sure your dreams are not against anyone else’s free will, nor that they are against someone else’s best interest. This way, the Law of Attraction won’t work, and you will create negative karma for yourself.
7. Align With Your Dreams
Think how you will feel when your dreams come true. What type of person will you be? How will you feel?
Your mood, feelings, and emotions are the keys to making the Law of Attraction work for you. If you recognize you will be happy, excited, and inspired when your dreams become a reality, in order to attract them, you should start feeling this way even before they do come true!
Look for small things you can do every day to make yourself feel happy and inspired even before your desires become a reality.
Don’t wait to start living as the person you want to be. The sooner you start embodying the qualities of the person you want to be, the more the Law of Attraction will work for you.
8. Take Inspired Action
Simply dreaming of things you want to experience will only get you that far. You need to take a step towards the reality you want to experience.
Any steps you take towards your goals, even small ones, will accumulate over time and give the universe a chance to bring blessings into your life.
9. Have Full Trust
Keep in mind that you are a part of the universe. Never doubt that the Law of Attraction is working. Whether it works in your life in a positive or a negative direction depends on your beliefs.
If you have taken the steps mentioned in this article, have no doubt that you are on your way to becoming a magnet for the most positive and abundant life you have ever dreamed of!
