7 of Your Most Common Questions About the Law of Attraction Answered
It’s perfectly natural to have questions when you first discover the Law of Attraction—and it’s also expected that new questions will arise as you slowly start to learn how you might use the Law of Attraction to change your life. Here are some of the most common queries, concerns and curiosities that I’ve heard over the years, along with answers that will help to boost your understanding.
1. What Is The Law Of Attraction?
Let’s start with the basics. The Law of Attraction essentially states that “like attracts like”—in other words, you get what you give out, often unconsciously drawing specific things towards you. So, if you can change the way you think and feel, you can change what you attract into your life.
Just like gravity and the laws of motion, we can’t see the Law of Attraction, but we can see how it changes things around us—just consider the success stories you’ve no doubt already ready and seen. This is only a superficial summary, but it’s the key idea to hold onto you as go forward.
2. How Do I Start Using The Law Of Attraction?
This common (and understandable) question is based on a fundamental misconception about the Law of Attraction—that it’s something that only influences you once you learn of its existence. In truth, everyone is “using” the Law of Attraction all the time, whether they mean to manifest specific things or not.
What I try to teach people is how an understanding of specific techniques can help you actively use the Law of Attraction as a tool for success and self-improvement. Whether you choose to use such techniques or not, however, you’re still attracting (and failing to attract) certain things as a result of your fundamental beliefs and emotional states.
3. What Is “Manifesting”?
When we talk about manifesting, all we mean is turning dreams or wishes into reality. You can manifest things by using Law of Attraction tools in conjunction with standard, more practical plans of action.
4. What Does It Mean To Have A High Or Low Vibration?
Everyone has a unique vibration, and it changes all the time. Your vibration is the energy you send out into the universe as a result of what you think, how you act, the way you feel and what you believe. If you’re vibrating on a high frequency, you attract bigger, better and more fulfilling things from the world.
Meanwhile, if you’re vibrating on a lower frequency, you’re likely burned out and feeling low, which makes it harder to attract what you want. There are some easy and powerful techniques for figuring out your current vibration and adjusting it to suit your purposes.
5. How Long Does It Take To Manifest Something?
As hard as it sounds, this is a question that you need to work to let go if you’re going to manifest what you want using the Law of Attraction. In fact, the sooner you can cultivate a mindset of universal gratitude and positivity about each passing moment, the more likely you are to manifest an increasingly better life at a faster rate.
Most people who have successfully used the Law of Attraction note that they can see they manifested their dream at precisely the right time for them (which is usually not quite when you’d think it would be). Although it sounds like a cliché, there is much to be enjoyed about life’s journey—and if you can learn to do so, you’ll become more effective at manifesting.
6. How Do I Know If I’m Using The Law Of Attraction Properly?
Let your intuition guide you when it comes to judging whether you’re using the Law of Attraction in the right way. If you feel just a little bit better every day, are more capable of seeing the positives in most situations and can see the tangible steps you’ve taken on the road to the life you want, then you’re using the Law of Attraction effectively.
These are all signs that you’re heightening your vibration, and therefore signs that you’re beginning to attract the things you desire most of all.
7. Is There One Law of Attraction Technique I Need To Use?
There are dozens of exercises and techniques that you can use to boost your manifestation potential. The most commonly used include visualization, dream boarding, and affirmations.
However, I would encourage you to read about as many techniques as possible, and use the ones that immediately create a spark of excitement or inspiration in you—this is a sign that something in you is responding to a specific exercise, recognizing its power.
Plus, you should feel free to adjust every one of these exercises to ensure that they resonate with you. Be playful, and experiment to your heart’s content.
