The law of attraction has been stated in many different ways. The most well known probably comes from the teachings of Jesus, you reap what you sow. It is the idea that you get out of life what you put into it. Most people stop there, they think of their overt, public actions towards others, and assume that if they do okay on that part, they are in good shape.
There is More Than What You See
There is a lot more to it. In fact, the law of attraction is at work in your life, right this instant, as you read this blog post. As you sort these words and ideas into little piles to keep, not keep, think about later, or even ignore, you are setting up a pattern of events that will ripple out through your day, your week, your month, and the rest of your life in tiny little echoes.
- We get what we think on, always, every time
- The universe does not distinguish negatives from positives, this is why focusing on what you do want is so important, because focus is focus, and you get what you think on
- Right now, you are thinking, and those thoughts will bear fruit, good, bad or indifferent
Every single word you say, every thought you have, every action you take, shapes this bag of seeds that you sow. If you are currently reaping something that you don't like the fault, I assure you, can be tracked back to something you focused on. It may have been something you feared, it may be something you hated, but you focused on it, long and hard, with a lot of emotion, and it attracted like thoughts, which turned into events that manifested in your universe. All of it.
You Don't Like it, But it's True
I know this is hard to accept, particularly if it is the first time anyone has ever said this highly offensive thing to you, that you are responsible, on some level, for even the shittiest thing that ever happened to you. But, it is true. What the universe cannot do is control how you respond to it. You will dwell on this, and you will either push it away, or you will accept it. Here's what you do.
- Watch. Look for the next few days at your life, notice events and how you feel about them.
- Writer them down, keep track, but don't judge anything for at least a week
- Track everything, down to the small details, everything that happens
Once you have some data, look at it. Write down what you thought about each of these incidents, before they became a part of your reality. You thought about them, didn't you? On some level, you either loved it, feared it, hated it, studied it, questioned it, the interactions have endless possibilities, but, you focused on, and attracted, every bit of it.
Here is the fun part of this experiment. Change the way you think. I mean it. Make a conscious decision to think differently about the negative, or uncomfortable experiences. Don't ignore them, but find a way to either focus on the positive aspects, or replace the thought with something positive, but change it. Now, set your mind on the things you want. Not what you don't want. When it comes to stuff you don't like, but can't get around, try this.
- Think of the best possible outcome
- Say thankyou for that outcome, yes, even though it hasn't happened yet
- Be specific about what you want, say it out loud if that makes it more real, or write it down, but make sure you remember it.
Now, watch this again. Look at your life and track it, keeping that positive frame of mind for one week. Write down all of the events of your life as you did before, just keeping track, not judging. When you have a week's worth of data, compare that week to the week before. You will be surprised at the difference. You will begin to be the architect of your own life. You will not experience everything you want to, some things will still happen that you do not like, but you will notice a change for the better.
The more you practice, the better you will become. You may never, in this life, be able to attract everything you want. It does not always work that way. There may always be things that fear, or doubt, will make impossible for you. The more you succeed at getting the life you want, the more you will want to succeed, and the fewer doubts and crippling fears will creep in to rob you of your desires.
