How To Start Using The Law Of Attraction In Everyday Life
If you want to start using the Law of Attraction, you’re probably pretty excited about what you might accomplish.
It’s wonderful to have that energy behind you, but it’s also just as important to take the time to do some reading before you begin the manifestation process.
With a little careful research, you can avoid many common mistakes and get the most significant results possible.
Here are eight things most seasoned Law of Attraction practitioners wish they knew when they were starting out!
1. Resistance Is Natural
At first, the Law of Attraction can sound so radical that you’ll struggle to believe it is real.
And this resistance may well stay with you even after you become entrenched in all the exercises and techniques.
One of the most effective things you can do is regularly acquaint yourself with success stories that help to show you real, concrete examples of manifestation in action, boosting your evidence base.
In addition, don’t take roadblocks and challenges as signs that the Law of Attraction isn’t real.
In retrospect, you’ll be able to see that these are necessary parts of your story and that many of them are actually precursors to success.
2. Positivity Must Be Real
Yes, being happy means you vibrate on a high frequency. One of abundance, and one that is capable of attracting better things at a faster rate.
However, the widespread manifestation advice that says you need to be happy isn’t about forcing or faking a state of joy through gritted teeth.
In other words, work to find out and maintain the habits and ways of being that make you truly happy. Try to avoid just pasting on a cheerful face and doling out insincere platitudes.
3. Personal Work Is A Prerequisite
If you want to change your life with the Law of Attraction, an amount of personal work is absolutely necessary.
You need to process old wounds, learn how to leave the old baggage behind, find out how to identify and challenge your own defense mechanisms and be capable of identifying what you really want… not what you or other people want you to want.
There are lots of ways to do this work.
Therapy and journaling are two of the most common ways. However, the point is that you’re unlikely to see significant results without it.
4. You Still Have To Work
It’s nice to imagine that the Law of Attraction allows us to put our feet up while the Universe does all the heavy lifting for us.
However, you do need to take action if you’re going to manifest successfully. This means going out to find and pursue new opportunities, pushing yourself out of your natural comfort zone, and actively researching the types of things that support your ultimate goals.
5. The Law of Attraction Isn’t About Controlling Others
If part of the appeal of manifestation is the idea that you can start using the Law of Attraction to circumvent another person’s free will, it’s worth taking a second look at your aims.
The Universe has imbued us all with autonomy. So, you can’t make another person do things using the Law of Attraction.
Plus, it would be unethical if you could. Sure, you can use the Law of Attraction to manifest or enhance traits that help make you a more attractive partner or employee, but you can’t manifest the love or affection of someone who would never otherwise have felt this way towards you.
6. The Universe Knows Best
You need to be flexible in Law of Attraction work, rather than assuming that you know exactly what your desired end looks like and then rejecting everything that doesn’t precisely fit this rigid template.
In many cases, you’ll discover that the Universe is the very best judge of what will work well for you and make you happy.
So keep an open mind about whatever comes your way. Try to see things through the lens of possibility and opportunity.
7. Everyone Struggles To Let Go
One of the most challenging aspects of any Law of Attraction is figuring out how to let go of your goal once you’ve set it.
Experts often compare the need to do so with the process of throwing a boomerang… if you want it to come back to you, then you actually have to throw it there on purpose.
That being said, you need to know that everyone finds this hard and that it’s a skill you can cultivate over time.
8. Manifestation Is Like Tending A Garden
This description of manifestation goes a long way towards helping you understand that you (and others) are not to blame for every bad thing that happens.
Rather, “bad” things happen because they’re required for growth, and growth can be painful as much as it is ultimately satisfying.
So, don’t think of yourself as the ultimate architect of your future. Instead, think of yourself as carefully tending the garden of your existence, giving yourself the very best chance of having the very best life.
