Like Attracts Like – The Principle Behind the Law of Attraction

Like Attracts Like

Have you ever wondered why you are attracted to a certain type of person? And why particular kinds of personalities are drawn to you? Why some things appeal to you and some others don’t? Ever thought why you find yourself in similar kinds of situations in life? All these kinds of life conundrums and more can be explained by the basic principle of the law of attraction – Like attracts LIke.

Everything is energy

Everything in this Universe including the people, animals, and plants is made up of energy. Even our thoughts and feelings are energies. All living things have a unique energy style called vibration. Each one of us is emitting energy vibrations in specific frequencies. The vibrational frequency of every living being is dependent on what we are focusing on.

Since our frequency of vibrations is based on our present focus, it is not constant. It changes as our focus changes. This is the secret clue to how to take charge of our lives. By influencing our area of focus, we can assume control of the frequency at which we are vibrating.

Now, we come to the next question. Why do we need to control our energy vibrations? The answer lies in ‘like attracts like’.

What does it mean?

‘Like attracts like’ is the basic premise of the law of attraction. In simple terms, this means things with similar energy levels are drawn to each other. That is, two entities vibrating at the same frequencies are pulled towards each other. This translates to the fact that positive thinking can help you attract good things in your life. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. Negative thoughts can bring you close to unwelcome events in life.

So, summarizing the information, we can control our energy vibrations by regulating our area of focus. And, we are drawn to things emitting energy vibrations of the same frequency as ours. Reviewing these two statements, what can infer?

It is obvious that by controlling what we are focusing on, we can attract what we want in our life. Our environment plays a big role in influencing our focus. So do our thoughts, feelings, talk, and action.

The reverse of this is also true. Our vibrational frequency has a huge influence on the world around us.

How to turn your life around?

After you have decided to change your life for the better, you need to introspect and identify where you are now and what you are feeling. It helps if you know what exactly you want in life. If you are feeling low, depressed, insecure, and angry with the whole world, the reasons can be many. Your limiting beliefs, fears, and doubts are to blame for your emotional state. These are the devil’s tools. If you want to turn your life around, as a first step you need to work towards getting rid of these unwanted emotions. Affirmations and meditation are found immensely helpful in this regard.

Blaming yourself or others for your misfortune is not going to help. In fact, it will create more negativity and bring you down further. Jealousy is another emotion for you to stay clear of. When you see someone happy and doing well in life, the first natural emotion is envy. Again, this is a negative emotion that can worsen your situation. Instead, learn to feel happy for them and wish the same good fortune for yourself. That is a positive approach.

The law of attraction states that ‘like energy’ attracts ‘like energy’. You are drawn towards people and things you are in vibrational harmony with, not what you desire or deserve. The vibrational frequency of every living being is determined by their dominant mental makeup, which in turn is influenced by its beliefs, thoughts, and feelings. Simply put, with a positive attitude, you can attract positive people, experiences, and events into your life.

Improve your frequency

As we have discussed here, the key to bettering your prospects in life is by amping up your vibrational frequencies. Affirmation and creative visualization are two law of attraction techniques that can help in raising your vibrational frequencies. Using these two powerful tools, you can effectively reprogram your subconscious mind and attract people and experiences you desire.

Affirmation: Affirmations are positive statements that you repeat to yourself to serve as inspiration and motivation. It helps in increasing your belief in self and overcome limitations and self-doubt. When you first start repeating affirmations, it might not ring true. However, choose those affirmations that you want to be true. Over time, with constant repetition, your belief in these positive statements would take root slowly but surely.

Having full faith in the affirmations you are saying every day is important to achieve the desired result. You will notice that gradually your beliefs transform for the better. Affirmations help in reshaping your perspective about yourself as well as the world around you.

According to the law of attraction, your beliefs lead to thoughts and feelings, which ultimately influence your experience. You can have affirmations with different objectives like love, wealth, health, career, or self-confidence. Here are a few examples of affirmations for self-confidence.

I am happy and confident.
I love and respect myself.
I need only my approval.
I feel secure with myself and my choices.
I am in a good place in my life.

Creative Visualization: Visualization is a process of putting together visual images related to the desire you want to manifest. The images can be compiled on a display board called the Vision Board or played as a video. You can also view these images through your mind’s eye. The most popular of them all is the vision board for its simplicity and impact.

Creative visualization is one of the most powerful tools in the law of attraction toolbox. A vision board may look very ordinary to a random person. But for the creator of the vision board, it symbolizes hope, dream, and a lot more. It works by invoking emotions associated with your goal. Though you have not yet reached the goal, repeated viewing of the images on the vision board brings forth feelings as if it were true. These emotions and feelings act as great motivators to help you towards realizing your dream.

Closing thoughts

When you are feeling insecure and self-worth is low, your vibrational frequency will be on the lower side. You will find people with similar low vibrational frequencies in your life. If you want to attract people who are open, positive, happy, and caring, that is people who have high vibrational frequencies, you have to develop similar traits in yourself. You can not remain who you are or where you are if you want to transform your life for the better. You need to change yourself first if you want to see a change in circumstances.
