“Like attracts like”.
“Ask, Believe, Receive”.
You may have come across these in connection with the law of attraction. If you want to know what they mean and the practical aspects of the law of attraction, read on.
What is the law of attraction?
It is a philosophy that tells us that a positive mindset attracts positive events and things into your life. The same is true for negative energy and things as well. This is what it means by “like attracts like”. This is a Universal Law.
You can turn this theory around and say that by raising your energetic vibration and developing a positive mindset, you can attract what you want. This is the manifestation in short. The steps of manifestation can be summarized as “Ask, Believe, Receive”.
The law of attraction offers a wide range of tools and techniques to help you raise your vibrational energy. Some of the most prominent and powerful ones are visualization, affirmation, and gratitude.
How to use the law of attraction?
So, that was the theoretical explanation of the law of attraction. Now let’s see how we can implement these theories in our daily lives.
You would be intrigued to know that you are already manifesting without realizing it. You are attracting things corresponding to the vibrational energy you have now. During the process of manifestation, you deliberately raise your energy so that you can attract what you want.
The law states that your thoughts and emotions can create realities. That it can attract people, things, and events with similar energy vibrations. This means if you want something good, all you need to do is raise your positive energy level to become a vibrational match for your desire.
Unless your desire is very easy to achieve, it takes days, weeks, months, or even years to manifest big dreams. So, manifestation is not a process you turn on for the period and once your goal is achieved, you can turn it off. Manifestation is more a way of life and a way of thinking you need to include as part of your daily routine.
When your energy vibrations are always high, you will be constantly manifesting without even putting in any special effort into it. The ideal way to raise your vibrational energy is to have only positive thoughts, feelings, and emotions. You should be able to keep the bad thoughts and emotions away permanently.
If you can build a lifestyle like this when your mind is always overflowing with positivity, all you need to do is think of the things you want and they will be yours.
Now, let’s see how you can develop such a lifestyle. The manifestation techniques can help you there.
How to promote a positive mindset?
Daily practice of manifestation techniques can have a huge impact on your life and on your capacity to attract your desires. From job and financial abundance to happiness, love, and relationships, you will be surprised at the things you can do with a positive attitude.
Each day and each moment of your life, you are making choices, sometimes small, sometimes big. This means you are choosing where your life is headed and how you live your life. This is where you need to pay attention. Learn to make the right choices and you are home safe.
Mindfulness is one of the basic steps in manifestation. This requires you to be aware of all your thoughts, feelings and emotions, and everything you have been experiencing. In short, live in the present moment.
Often you are running on autopilot, doing things without being fully present. It may require a complete overhauling of your mindset to get it accustomed to mindfulness. It needs practice, focus, dedication, patience, and perseverance to achieve this level of transformation. It may take you some time for this but it would be worth the effort.
Gratitude is another positive tool you should have in your bag to make manifestation easy and simple. Again, you typically complain and crib when things go wrong but when they are working out fine, you take it for granted. This is what you need to change.
When something good happens to you, you should remember to thank whoever has helped you. Sometimes this may be someone you know or even a stranger or you can thank the Universe.
As your mind is at present not used to this, you should take steps to develop gratitude as a habit. Maintaining a gratitude journal can help you with this. While using a gratitude journal, you are consciously thinking about the positive events of the day and feel grateful for them. With practice, gratitude will become part of your attitude that you are automatically thankful for the blessing without any prompts or cues.
Another equally useful tool you can make part of your daily routine is meditation. There are different kinds of meditation. You may choose the simpler and easier to practice ones first and move on to the purest form of meditation in which you need to empty your mind and keep it absolutely still for the duration.
Again, this is not easy to practice but would be worth the effort. Meditation helps you focus better on the task at hand and gives you better control over your mind and thereby your behavior.
