Law of Attraction and manifesting have become hot topics in recent years.
The premise of the Law of Attraction is that since everything in the Universe is made of energy and everything resonates at a certain frequency or wavelength, people, places, and experiences that hold a similar frequency attract each other.
The saying “your vibe attracts your tribe” literally reflects that. Your thoughts, words, beliefs, and actions attract your life experiences. If you want positive experiences in your life, you must align your frequency with them.
However, you can ask, does God support using the Law of Attraction, or is it a form of dark magic that goes against your religion?
Religion is a form of spirituality, but many people who don’t follow a particular religion, still believe in God and consider themselves spiritual. Many pagans believed in God or multiple gods.
Therefore, what God says about the Law of Attraction depends on your beliefs about God. The Law of Attraction is simply a law of this Universe, like the Laws of Physics. They exist regardless of whether we believe in them.
Using the Law of Attraction to do good to yourself and others, doesn’t go against any major religious views. You should never use it to harm someone and restrict someone’s free will, regardless of whether you are religious.
Understanding that different cultures, religions, and spiritual traditions have different ideas of God is crucial.
The term “God”, meaning the creator and higher wisdom, has existed even before Judeo-Christian religions. It is a popular misconception that not being religious means not being spiritual. Because we live in a Judeo-Christian culture, we might get the impression that it is the only truth and that Bible is the truth.
If you believe in the Judeo-Christian version of God, in God as seen in other religions, such as Allah in Islam, or if you believe in God as the Universe, and higher collective consciousness, as God is seen in many spiritual traditions.
Listen to your intuition to decide if the Law of Attraction is right for you. Your intuition is guidance from the Higher Wisdom, also called God.

What Different Religions Say About the Law of Attraction?
If you are a Christian, a Jew, a Buddhist, a Muslim, Hinduist, or a pagan, you will have a different idea in your mind when you say “God”. However, we might all mean the same thing, just due to the interpretation of our cultures and languages, express it differently.
Bible is a very complex book, and if you are Christian or a Jew, God’s view on the Law of Attraction will depend on your interpretation. A popular verse in Matthew 13:12 is often believed to be related to the Law of Attraction.
It states,” Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have, will be taken from them.”
It goes hand in hand with the belief that whatever you believe and focus on expands. If you believe in lack and focus on lack, you will experience even more lack in your life.
As this law is mentioned in the Bible, we can conclude that our life is impacted by it regardless of whether we are aware of it or not. The more important question is when we apply it consciously, what things should we focus on, and what should we try to manifest according to the Bible?
According to the Bible, God says we should focus on Him and not on our desires. Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
We should pray for what we want and trust that God will provide it for us. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
We can be confident that if we follow God’s plan for our lives, we will experience His blessing.
Getting caught up in our plans and goals can be easy. We may have a clear picture of what we want to achieve, but it’s important to remember that God’s plan for us is always the best.
When we surrender our lives to Him, He will guide us and provide for us in ways we could never have imagined. Bible teaches that God’s plans are always good, and He will never lead us astray.
However, as you are human, it is natural to have your feelings, wants, and desires. God wants what is best for you – if you feel something is good for you, God is not likely to judge you or disapprove of your desires.
Focusing on what you desire is always a better idea than focusing on what you don’t want.
New Age Spirituality
Many people who look for a higher meaning in life and follow New Age movements believe in God, even if they don’t follow a particular religion.
The Law of Attraction has become particularly popular among New Age spirituality practitioners. Most New Age movements follow a combination of various spiritual traditions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Sufism.
New Age spirituality doesn’t follow a particular religious text and relies more on direct experience. Many followers of New Age movements report blissful states they have reached when meditating or participating in shamanic ceremonies.
Many believe these are direct interactions with divine realms and God. New Age movements believe that your heart holds all the answers and God supports you on your path and what you believe to be the best for you.
If you believe that manifesting and the Law of Attraction can improve your life and move you towards your goals, God will also support you on your path!
The Law of Attraction is a universal law, just like other laws of physics or biology. It works and affects our lives regardless of whether we believe it. If we focus on good things and believe we deserve them, our reality will mirror that.
If we believe we are unworthy of good experiences and focus on our fears, we will manifest more problems. Since God wants the best for you and wishes you to be happy, regardless of your spiritual or religious beliefs, it is safe to assume that God won’t disapprove of your desire to manifest your desires.
Simultaneously, keep trusting God and know that he always knows what is best for you. Pray for his guidance and trust that he will guide you toward life and experiences more valuable to your soul than anything you can envision.
