About: The Law of Attraction - What is it?

Updated on August 10, 2012

I've always found the term "attraction", to be very misleading when it comes to understanding anything about the "laws of attraction". I doubt very much that when the first person finally understood that the true workings of the law of attraction, that they actually intended for people to believe that all they had to do was thinking happy thoughts and all good things would come to them. I prefer the terms "laws of abundance" or "quantum intelligence", as they are much more accurate and their descriptions.

When it comes to manifesting in this world, we humans are at the top of the creation chain. We can create or destroyed with nothing more complicated than a thought. We can build the most magnificent things, and destroy some of the most beautiful things, in a relatively short amount of time. These are all elements of manifestation.

Basically, the law of attraction, is simply an awareness of how our ability to manifest works. It is an awareness and an alignment of our conscious and subconscious minds, which we purposefully created, in order to better manifest the challenges and results that we want in our lives, instead of allowing "fate" or "luck" to control our destinies.

To be more specific, someone who follows the laws of abundance, understands that you cannot sit and wait for opportunities to fall in your lap. If you want different results in your life, such as more love, appreciation or money, then you have to go out and find or create the opportunities that will lead you into situations where you are most loved, fulfilled and blissful.

Too narrow it down even more, in the most basic and uncomplicated way I can think to put it, the laws of attraction are guidelines and behavior patterns that knocked down walls and build bridges into the lands of opportunity, in whichever form of opportunity you seek.

    The key word to the Law of Attraction is vibration, i.e. everything is made of electromagnetic energy and we vibrate our own unique-feeling energy all the time. You can feel it when you get excited about something, because it's stronger then. Anyway, that's what attracts. Like a magnet, the energy you emanate pulls toward you those people and things that have similar vibrations. You modify it by how often you focus on subjects and how you feel about them.

    If you just sit around and hope for the good things come to your door, you will be waiting for the rest of your life. Definitely agree with you we have to create the opportunities that will offer us the chance to get whatever we want to get in our life.

    And this is why my husband test drove a challenger today. Because he doesn't just want to sit around and wish for one, he wants to get in alignment with that desire and make it happen!
