Basically, we attract what we are and what we think. There is a famous saying, “like attracts like”, which means that if you want to attract something, first you have to be it, feel it, live it, give it and, in this way, you’ll have it. So, we can have a desire, want to attain it with all of our heart, and when we don’t get it immediately, we become discouraged. Then we start to think that we’ll never attain it, we feel defeated and our head fills with those negative thoughts that increasingly distance us from our objective. This is a negative cycle. Do you see how it works? In the same way, if we have positive thoughts and we direct our actions towards achieving our dreams and desires, we are creating a positive cycle that will gradually bring us closer to them. In a nutshell, this is what the law of attraction is.
Now I will explain how you can apply the law of attraction to get everything you want.
You will attract what you think about the most: This is true regardless of whether it is something good or something bad. If you spend time thinking about the things that you DON’T want to happen, about your fears, about failure or about your past mistakes, then this is what you will bring to your present and your future. On the other hand, if you decide to think more about that dream you have, about what you have to do to achieve it and about the things that you DO want to happen, you will attract these things. Be very careful with your thoughts because your thoughts drive your actions and, therefore, the most important element for the end result.
Feel and live whatever it is that you want: Let’s say you want something very tangible like a new car. Act as if you already have it, do visualization exercises, feeling what it would be like to drive it, what it would smell like, what color it would be, imagine it in great detail and, above all, with the positive emotions (happiness, joy, hope, satisfaction) that you would have when you get it. Life will take care of creating the opportunities to obtain it. You’ll have to work for it, but you’ll obtain it. This applies to any dream that you have, be it a romantic partner, your own business, a bigger house or more friends. Act as if you already have it and you’ll see that soon you will have it.
Words do matter: Because with your words, you express your thoughts. So, you must change defeatist and negative phrases like “I can’t…”, “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t have such a thing…”, “I lack this or that…” for positive affirmations that reinforce your confidence and put you on the right path to get what you want, for example, “I have such and such virtue…”, I’m lucky because…”, “I’m grateful to life…”, “I’m enough”, “I deserve…”, etc.
Finally, in order to know what you want, you have to know yourself very well because, in this way, you’ll be sure that this dream you have will really make you happy and isn’t just a passing fancy.
