Do you believe in the law of attraction? Ever since the movie “The Secret” came out, many people have been curious about how manifestation works. If you know about the law of attraction but think it’s all a bunch of spiritual nonsense, then you may misunderstand it to its core. So let me give you my woo-woo-free, no-BS take on manifesting. Plus a few good reasons why you should absolutely believe in the law of attraction.
In this article, we are going to cover how the law of attraction works and why you should believe in it. We are going to talk about the practical steps of the law of attraction and how countless people (celebrities included) have used it to manifest fantastic life experiences.
Read on to find out why you should totally believe in the law of attraction. Spoiler: because it works!
What is The Law of Attraction
The universal law of attraction is all about like energy attracting like energy.
What you focus your thoughts and energy on will ultimately manifest in your life.
Here is, in short, the 5 step process of manifesting using the law of attraction that never let me down:
Understand: You need to understand first what the universal laws are and how they play together. Understanding manifestation is key to making it work. This post here is the perfect start, and if you like to go much deeper on this topic, you will love my manifestation guide.
Ask/Order: Placing your order is all about putting the goals into your subconscious mind. When you write down your goals and understand why you want certain things, you are putting your focus on what you want to have instead of what you don’t want.
In other words, you set the right kind of goals.
Expect/Believe: To attract and manifest the things you want in your life. You need to believe that you deserve them and that they are possible. If you do not entirely and genuinely believe that your dreams are possible, you will never make it to step 4.
It’s all about overcoming your manifestation blocks.
Receive/Achieve: This is where YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN. Once you have figured out what you want and you have built up an inner belief that you deserve it, you start to take inspired action towards your goals.
It’s all about becoming this person that already achieved your goals. Without action, nothing will happen. (This is where The Secret fell short, in my opinion)
Manifesting Tools: Using specific techniques such as visualization, affirmations, hypnosis, NLP, etc., will train your subconscious to believe more in your dream.
These tools reinforce your conviction and thrust you towards your goals.
Understanding the Universal Laws
The law of attraction is only one of many universal laws. Just like gravity, cause and effect, and transmutation of energy, the law of attraction follows specific guidelines.
It always works the same way for everyone, all the time. If you treat it as law and respect that it has boundaries and formulas, you will be able to make it work for you instead of working against you (which is simply you working against yourself).
The thing is, the law of attraction alone will most probably not bring you to your goal. Ask, believe, and receive is NOT working. And that’s why I understand that so many don’t trust in the power of manifestation. I get that.
That’s why I like to go a bit deeper into WHY the LoA actually works.
Why The Law of Attraction Works (A Woo-Woo Free Explanation)
If you’re still wondering if the law of attraction is real, then maybe you are unsure of whether or not you can believe in it.
When the law of attraction was first introduced, it was presented as a very intangible belief, with a lot of unanswered questions.
It was widely understood as “thoughts become things” and “believe and you will receive.” Although these statements are true, to some extent, they are missing crucial understandings.
See, you can’t just sit around and hope for things and expect them to show up.
There are spiritual forces out there that do cause synchronicities. Still, the law of attraction has a lot more to do with training your subconscious mind, your reticular activation system, and changing who you are.
All of the law of attraction tools are built to help you train yourself to believe that you are capable, therefore prompting you to take action and pay attention to what matters.
It is all about removing beliefs that you are unworthy or incapable of and replacing them with empowering beliefs.
It is about teaching your mind to recognize solutions and answers to your desires instead of only paying attention to the negative things that you don’t want to happen.
When you naturally pay attention to what will bring you closer to your goals, you will be much more likely to work towards those goals and put yourself into opportunities to get what you want.
So you see, this is not some woo-woo stuff, and that’s not the sort of manifesting advice you will find on my blog or in my book.
Brief Explanation of Synchronicities
Sometimes, things show up in our lives that are hard to explain. That by thinking about someone specific, suddenly you hear from them. Or having an exact picture of a thing you want to experience and then seeing it in front of your eyes one day.
These are called synchronicities and were first introduced by Carl Jung. Jung worked as a psychiatric researcher in the Burghölzli hospital, which is funny enough, right around the corner from where I live. Coincidence?
He also called synchronicities “meaningful coincidences” that occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related.
These things do happen, and they are a wonderfully inspiring experience. It shows that even without our conscious mind knowing about it, our subconscious is looking for solutions that we are not able to imagine.
Our subconscious is working on autopilot to bring us those exact things we have been dreaming of. It activates our RAS (reticular activation system) and brings the things we desire into focus so we can notice them.
Although there are unexplainable phenomena involved in the law of attraction, it should not deter you from using it to your advantage and manifesting things that will enrich your life.
It is either working to your benefit or your demise. You decide!
Who Believes in the Law of Attraction?
In the last ten years, the law of attraction changed my life. And along the way, I helped thousands of coaching clients and readers to manifest the life they love!
This stuff works!
And that’s one of the reasons why so many successful people believe in the law of attraction.
Once you have seen it work in your own life, it is impossible not to believe in it. Of course, successful people also understand that taking action is the main ingredient, but finding out what you want, getting clear on your intention, and believing you are deserving of it are massive pieces to the puzzle.
Some celebrities who endorse the law of attraction include Jim Carey, Oprah, Connor Macgregor, Denzel Washington, Lady Gaga, and many more.
Jim Carey wrote himself a cheque for 10 million dollars and carried it around with him for years, believing he would eventually receive it. Within a few years, he was paid 10 million dollars for a movie he played in.
Oprah believes in imagining the most grandiose version of your life possible. In doing so, you allow yourself to believe it is possible, and your mind starts to look for ways to make it a reality.
Connor Macgregor believes in creating an image in your mind and having the courage to speak it out loud. Then, take that belief and turn it into a reality with your actions.
So why not just open up yourself and try it out? There is nothing you can lose.
If you’re still struggling to believe in the law of attraction, give it a try. In a sense, using the law of attraction is simply a way to refocus your mind and energy onto what you genuinely desire, making it more likely to manifest either way.
What you focus on grows.
