What is the Law of Attraction after all?

Updated on November 26, 2016

Did you know that most people who use the Law of Attraction don't know what it really is?

Furthermore, most people can't even explain what it is. So just to get things straight, i'll answer the main question about what the law of attraction really is.

The Law of Attraction is a Metaphysical Universal Law, and has been extremely popularized in the most recent years. The Law of Attraction defends that “like attracts like” and is done with the power of mind in action, so to speak, positive thoughts bring about positive results, and negative thoughts create negative results. This means that we create our own reality; from the house that we live in, to the Money we have in our bank accounts, they’re all a result of our thoughts and emotions.
We attract every circumstance into our lives according to thought patterns, which can also be fundamented with logic: successful people hang out with successful people, and lead them to opportunities which will bring them more success.

At a deeper level, the Law of Attraction is based on the principle where everything in the Universe is made up of Energy. In the last few years, scientists have made astonishing discoveries especially in the field of quantum mechanics (a science which studies the Universe at a sub-atomic level), where it has been proved that everything that surrounds us is in fact only energy which is locked in a grid to form molecules and particles, which then form the objects which we perceive as physical, such as stars, plants, people and iPods.

In this manner, and because all of our thoughts emit a frequency (wave pattern), and that which surrounds us, the emptiness of primordial substance (which is what everything is made of like I stated previously), reacts to that frequency by reproducing corresponding results, such as events, thoughts and other similar frequencies. So if the thought pattern is negative, then the frequency will only correspond with it’s equal, resulting in negative events and negative outcomes. Us humans, are unfortunately prone to amplify the negative patterns, which explains why when bad things happen, they all happen one after the other. Fortunately these patterns can be overridden by our emotional and sensorial systems.

The Law of Attraction works when there is a persistent pattern in thought or a very strong emotional charge, which clones and amplifies the pattern, creating a constant cycle. This cycle acts as a signal, which is sent into the Universe, and creates the results. Cycles can be created consciously or unconsciously, enabling them many times to seem dormant or disguised in the sub-conscious mind. When they are rooted in the sub-conscious mind, much more effort is required to change or replace them, as they form one’s beliefs and convictions, can create failure and anxiety disorders, and may even turn deliberate creation against you.
For example, if you were teased in childhood because you were fat or ugly, after years of repetition that became a habit of thought and acceptance: “you weren’t good enough”. Traces of that problem can be encountered as other anxiety disorders, in situations later on in life such as when you have to make a public speech. Your own belief pattern turns against you, and you feel anxiety and fear of rejection and failure. That’s a rooted thought pattern.

Many people become afraid when they find evidence of the Law of Attraction working in their own lives. When I found proof of it in my life, I became very excited to find auto-creations all over my history. When I deliberately began to create and manifest, the best things began to happen in my life. However about 3 years later, old thought patterns took over, and began to create the opposite. Fortunately I managed to work on that, and turned it around again, with even more strength, after doing a lot of research and experimenting for a very long time with various different techniques.

In conclusion, it is possible to change thought patterns and habits, and although it takes it’s time, the Law of Attraction will always manifest the corresponding results.

In this small video, Oprah Winfrey speaks to Larry King about her incredible experience with the Law or Attraction and how she manifested one of greatest dreams at the time.

The History of the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction has existed since the creation of the Universe, and will always exist as long as the Universe exists.
The first known writings about the Law of Attraction can be traced back to 3000 b.C. These were the writings of Hermes Trismegistus, a God like being or seen as one of the wisest men of hermetical traditions to this day. His writings, the “Emerald Tablet” or “Tabula Smaragdina”, states an apparent connexion between everything that exists, in a science of unified oneness.

Other documents about this Universal Law can be found in 7th Century Sacred Hindu scriptures called Upanishads. These, written in Kashmir – India, were used by Shaivists, who centered their beliefs on the influence of Vibration; called Spanda. The knowledge was only shared with the western world by the “New Thought” current in the 19th Century, through illustrious historians and connoisseurs, such as Abraham Anquetil Duperron and masters such as Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.

Today, the “New Thought” current is made available to all, through techniques and tools, which allow everyone to study and use the Law of Attraction easily.

“It is true, without a lie, certain and most true,
That which is below is as that which is above, and that which is above is as that which is below, to perform the miracles of the one thing”

- Esmerald Tablet, Hermes Trismegistus, Circa 3000 bC

Tips on how to use the Law of Attraction

The recognition of the Law of Attraction and its use previously implies two things:

  1. That you take full responsibility over your current situation
  2. That you take full responsibility over the actions and decisions applicable to your own life

If you want to see the Law of Attraction working in full harmony with your desires, work from inside out. Find inner happiness and peace with yourself first, without depending on anything or anyone else to do so. By using the Law of Attraction with this inner knowledge of yourself, your creations will be much much bigger and happen faster, with less obstacles.

If you opt into crazy programs which promise you results in 3 days, then you will probably fail to attract by the Law of Attraction, abandon the Law of Attraction or create disbelief in it, or even end up in an even worse situation than the one that you’re currently in.

How to make the best of the Law of Attraction in your life

When you use the Law of Attraction, it is important to live in the Now; the Present moment, and NEVER in your past or the future. In fact 98% of everything you think is about the past or the future. 90% Of which is negative. And it is known that you build your future according to past events and emotions. So your predictions and creations in the future are most likely to fail intensely on you. That is why, when you decide to live with the Law of Attraction, you must do it as presently as you possibly can. Create it in the now, feel it as the now, and project it as the now.

(*) By definition Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world. Some of the themes studied in metaphysics are objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, possibility and existence. Quantum Mechanics is a strong ally to metaphysics as it has unveiled many of the enigmas of metaphysics.

      This is a well written Hub on the basic principle that like attracts like. You make yourself, however it may take some time to do so. Some results may not be noticed within one lifetime.

      Edgar Cayce said, "That which the mind of a soul dwells upon, it becomes: for Mind is ever the builder."
