What is the law of attraction?
The law of attraction tells us how powerful our mind is and what it is capable of achieving. By channeling our thoughts and feelings on the right path, we can reshape our life and the world around us any which way we want to. Nothing is impossible to accomplish when you are armed with a positive mindset and a can-do attitude. It is as simple as that!
The law of attraction is not just about attracting love and improving relationships. It can help you achieve anything you desire including health, wealth, abundance, and happiness. If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
It is easy, that’s for sure. But manifesting with the law of attraction has its limitations as well. Using the law of attraction, we can make changes in our lives. However, we cannot directly change others or the way they see us or behave towards us. By changing our behavior, we can influence others indirectly. And, there are rules to follow.
The basic rules of the law of attraction
The sky is the limit to what you can manifest love with the law of attraction. However, you need to stick to certain guidelines for a successful manifestation. This is not only for getting your ex back but for manifesting any of your goals.
You can focus on what you want, but not on what you don’t want. The law of attraction doesn’t distinguish between positive and negative goals. The Universe brings you whatever you are focussing on. This means the focus needs to be on the positive aspect of your desire to achieve your intention. For example, you may choose your goal as “I want my ex back” but not “I don’t want her to forget me” or “I don’t want to lose him”. When you focus on negative emotions, you end up manifesting them and not what you actually want.
The intention needs to be pure for manifestation to succeed. If revenge is what you are after, don’t waste your time with this. If you want to get your girlfriend/boyfriend back only to break her/his heart later, this is not the route to take.

The same applies to acts of desperation. You can manifest what you want but not what you need. ‘Need‘ has a negative ring to it, while ‘want‘ is something positive. When you need someone or something, it shows your lack of control over self and your obsessive nature. You need to let go of your ‘needy’ behavior before you try to get your ex back.
You need to be 100% sure about what you want when you are manifesting goals using the law of attraction. You need to be crystal clear about what you want with as many details about it as you can bring to mind. No flipflops, no second thoughts, no self-doubt, and more importantly, no deceit and trickery. You need to be confident, consistent and possess an untainted positive attitude to succeed at realizing your desire. You need to send only positive vibes towards your ex.
It is important to think about your goal in the present tense as if you have already achieved it. Not as something you are trying or planning to get in the future, however near it may be. “I am back with my ex” is correct, while “I will try to get back with my ex” or “I will get back with my ex” are wrong.
For the law of attraction to work its magic and bring your girlfriend/boyfriend back, make sure you are fulfilling your part of the bargain. You need to accept your ex for who they are and allow them to be who they want to be. You need to respect their rights and liberties as a free person. There should be no attempt from your part to blame, control, and/or oppose the free will of your ex.
How does it work?
The principle of the law of attraction can be explained using the law of vibration. Everything in this Universe including people, animals, plants, and things is made up of energy. We know that all living and non-living things are made up of molecules and they vibrate at different frequencies. When the vibrational frequencies match, things get attracted to each other. When the equilibrium gets disturbed due to external influence, one or both the frequencies change. This results in disconnect and parting ways. Simply put in the law of attraction lingo, like attracts like.
Your relationship and breakup can be explained using the law. At some point in the past, you and your ex were on the same vibrational level and were attracted to each other. Later on, unfortunately, there was a disturbance in the balance due to reasons known or unknown to you. This resulted in dissimilarity in vibrational frequencies and you two drifted apart.
So, now we come to the obvious question. How can you use the law of attraction to get your ex back?
According to the law of attraction, to attract something good into your life, you need to ramp up your vibrational frequency. While good, positive things vibrate at higher frequencies, the not-so-good, negative things vibrate at comparatively lower frequencies. The higher your vibrational frequency, the better your chance of getting your ex back. This leads us to the question of how to increase your vibrational frequency.
You start vibrating at a higher frequency when you feel positive, confident, secure, optimistic, and happy. That means your vibrational strength comes from within yourself. For this to happen, you need to change how you see, feel, and think about yourself.
The law of attraction offers tools and techniques to improve your vibrational frequency to match that of your desire and thus helps you to manifest your goal. Some of them are explained in detail below.

Helpful hints to help you get your ex back
Even as you follow the steps of the law of attraction to get back together, you may find these tips useful for additional encouragement and support.

You need to accept part ownership for the breakup, as a relationship involves two people and it is rare that the breakup is one person’s fault. Learn to let go. Forgiveness doesn’t come easy or effortlessly. It is hard work, but worth every bit of it.
- After a breakup, it is understandable that your self-worth and confidence at an all-time low. You need to work extra hard to change the perception of yourself. This is more important if your ex has moved on and is already in a serious relationship with someone else. Whether it is about your physical attributes or mental makeup or your standing in life, you need to realize that you have nothing to be ashamed about and you deserve the best. Only when you are truly content and at peace with yourself and radiating positivity, you will be able to attract good things into your life.
- There is bound to be resentment and bitterness after a breakup, especially if it is a bad and messy one. It may or may not be your fault. Whatever the case, it is better you adopt the no-contact rule. Trying to reason, apologize, or even beg is not going to see the desired result. Chances are it will worsen the situation. Give each other some space and time for introspection. Allow your ex freedom and not feel stifled by the relationship. As the saying goes, let go to gain more.

- You can set a time limit for the no-contact period, say a month or two. Use this time to get a grip on your emotions and try to move on with your life doing things that make you happy and content. When the no-contact period ends, you would be full of energy and confidence and would have started enjoying life. Though you still love your ex and want to get back together, you will find that you are not defined by your relationship and you do not need one to feel happy and fulfilled.
- Stay away from social media as much as possible for a while. Do not block your ex, just unfollow. This will help with your no-contact policy. Do not flood your account with posts and photos to show the world how affected or unaffected you are by the end of the relationship. It is counterproductive. Instead, take a short break from social media.
- Once the no-contact period is over, test waters with simple and to-the-point messages to your ex like “Was thinking about you yesterday. Hope all is well.” Take care not to strike up long conversations.
- Do things that make you feel good. Be it going out with friends, listening to music, binge-watching TV shows, cooking, gardening, volunteering, or reading your favorite author. Being happy changes your perception of the world as well as how the world sees you. When you are happy, content, and at peace with yourself, you exude confidence and positivity that makes you a natural magnet to the people around you.
- Do not worry or waste your time thinking about why the law of attraction is not working for you. Understand and accept that the Universe will bring you the right things at the right time. There is no time limit for the law of attraction to work its magic for you. Trust the Universe without even a speck of doubt and carry on with your life with all the positivity, happiness, and confidence that you can muster. Good things are bound to happen in due course.
- Even after you get back together with your ex, continue your newfound positive way of life. Do not revert to your old behavior, which may have been one of the contributing factors to the breakup.
When you are trying to win your ex back, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. There are no fixed rules for what you can or cannot do. Just be happy, positive, and fearless and go ahead and live your life the way you want to. Rest assured; good things are bound to follow.
