Law of Attraction Basics
Simply put the ‘law’ says you attract into your life, that what you concentrate on, the thing that you focus upon, and give, constant, energy to. If your thoughts are that of lack and limitation, then the ‘law’ says that you will receive, exactly, what you give your attention to – in this case, lack and limitation.
The ‘law’ tells us that we are not solid objects of mass, but at our core we are just pure energy, every cell in our body being powered by an atom, and our thoughts, too, are energy. Thought activity can actually be measured by scientists, thoughts are like electrical waves that emanate out into the universe, and like a magnet , attract back the like.
Many of us believe that all our results are brought about by external influences: hereditary, karma and the environment are responsible for our failures. Scientists, however, believe that within each of us is the wonderful world of power, promise and possibility and everything we experience is a direct action of the mind, we therefore need to employ our mind correctly.
The way we, therefore, shape our ideas is of great importance. Most of us, up until now have been totally influenced by external factors: our moods, happiness and thoughts dragged along with the pictures that are played in front of us each day. Even our reactions to such events being on autopilot. We need to pause take a deep breath and choose our own thoughts and responses, be the masters of our own minds and therefore destiny. Be your own designer and builder.

Relationships and the Law
The easiest way to attract a mate: exude confidence and charm, make the opposite sex think that you are in high demand and, indeed, are a precious jewel. You have got to be cool, easy going and confident at all times, confidence they say is the best aphrodisiac. All these traits are great to those who possess them, but to the uncomfortable, awkward and shy person, who is desperate for a mate, these things are easier said than done. So what does the law say about relationships, and how can the law push is in the right direction when it comes to choosing a mate. Well, first off, it tells us that we should visualise the perfect mate coming into our lives: the visualisation should be done at a time when you are thoroughly relaxed, and you should get all the senses involves , really get into the experience, and make it come to life, make it feel as real as possible. Do your visualisation as often as possible and really get into them, even to the point of physically moving your hands to caress your, new found, lovers face. When this is done in the correct manner, all we need to do then is sit back and wait for the right time to act – your chance will come. So, if you are not the type of person that goes out for lunch or a drink with work colleagues, it’s time to change your ways – start saying yes to social events. The rest is history, you will be walking down the aisle in less than a year.
Wealth and the laws
The law says we must concentrate on the positive, for instance if we were to focus our energy on getting out of debt, then the main focus here is ‘debt,’ thus we would attract more debt. However, if we were to focus on prosperity, abundance and plenitude, then this is what we will attract. As in the above example, visualisation is essential and is the basis of all things law of attraction, what we think and give power to, we attract. Once we have got the visualisation down, it is not a good idea to sit idly by and wait. Now is the time to make plans and take action, no matter how small your first step, just take it! It is in taking action that we open ourselves up to receiving, and in this case – lots of money.
Here is a good time to reiterate that you must focus on the positive, and this is sometimes not as easy or as obvious as one thinks: when mother Teresa was asked to go on an anti-war rally, she replied, “I will never attend an anti-war rally; if you have a peace rally, invite me.” This is an excellent example of what we should be aiming for – concentrate and focus on what you want, not what you do not want. Also worth saying here, that if a negative thought does creep into your mind, try not to worry about it, get yourself tuned back into the positive as quick as you can. It has been scientifically proven that positive thoughts are 100’s of times more powerful than negative ones.
Health and the laws
Somewhat controversially, the law tells us that our thoughts and actions are also responsible for our health: dis-harmony in our thoughts and lives, produce un-ease in our body, which in turn can manifest as dis-ease in the body, sorry for all the hyphens. The law tells us that everything we attract ,is exactly what we have ordered, and the universe is just delivering and responding to our request. The universe does not discriminate, it just acts on our thought and brain waves, if we put out worry, fear and anxiety then this in turn will bring disharmony to you physical being. It is therefore essential that we picture and see ourselves as healthy and positive individuals; visualise the body you want, and the way you would look and feel if you were totally healthy. Do not start telling everybody of your latest ailments and pending doom, and moan about every ache and pain in your body – get into a healthy mindset.
Intellect and the Law
Many an idle genius, or so the saying goes. It doesn’t follow that just because one possesses a great mind for retaining facts, that this makes you more likely to live a fulfilled life. A fulfilled life is a balance of all things: health, love, knowledge, wealth, a life free from constant fear, worry and guilt. An ability to retain knowledge does not buy you an automatic ticket to fulfilment. Many believe that true happiness cannot be obtained here on earth, the ‘law,’ though, says that it most definitely can be, and goes one step further to say, ‘that unless it is achieved here on earth it cannot be achieved in the hereafter.’
The ‘law’ teaches us to beware of the the undeveloped mind: this is prejudice, materialistic, and competitive by nature. It may, even, be able to solve the hardest maths equations known to man, but ultimately it will never fulfil its true destiny unless it changes. The developed mind, however, knows no prejudice, blesses so called obstacles in his path, is generous both with praise and finances and moves forward with a creative and honest mind, always taking action. The man with the developed mind does not know failure – how can he? It is impossible to fail if we keep going; the only failure is in giving up.
We can assume then that intelligence counts for nothing in life, unless it is used within the boundaries of the laws and to aid in the learning of them.
The success mindset
The ‘law’ tells us that God intended every individual to succeed, it is god’s purpose that man should become great, it is god’s will that man should not only use but enjoy every good in the universe; the law of god denies us nothing. Man is born to be rich the powers inherent in him are inexhaustible; each normal person is endowed with a complete set of faculties which if properly develop and scientifically applied will ensure success. Man is made for progress; every person contains within themselves the capacity for endless development. Infinite resources are at your disposal there are no limits to your possibilities, you can develop a wonderful intelligence, thus, all of life’s questions can be answered, all of natures secrets discovered, all human problems solved – nothing is impossible. Higher faculties, remarkable talents, superior insight and greater power are dormant in all, and by special psychological methods these exceptional elements can be developed to extraordinary degree for actual and practical use. ’Practice’ of the laws will ensure efficiency, ‘use’ will bring forth results, success therefore is within the reach of every aspiring person.
