Two Biggest Misconceptions About The Law Of Attraction
Law of Attraction “not working?”
I’m sure you know someone who has said this. Maybe it’s actually you who said it.
Law of attraction came into your life and you just expected things to go smoothly from there on out.
Maybe you thought everything you ever wanted would come into your life magically and that things would just fall into place.
And then they didn’t. And you were surprised and frustrated. Maybe you even felt betrayed by the person who taught you about it.
Well what I can promise you is this: The Law of Attraction is a natural law that is as real as the law of gravitation or mathematics.
In this post I will show you why you think that the law of attraction is not working for you and what you can do about it.
1: Most People intellectually understand the Law of Attraction but they don’t know it for what it actually is.
There’s a big difference between intellectually grasping a concept and truly realizing/knowing what it is. This is the single biggest thing that I see in most people who say that the law of attraction doesn’t work.
Intellectual understanding of LOA: You have grasped the idea of how it works. It makes sense to you and you believe in its operations. You are convinced that it exists but despite your belief, hints of doubt still exist.
Realizing/Knowing the LOA: You have applied the law of attraction teachings to your life and have seen that it’s not about “making the law work,” but rather, aligning your thoughts & emotions to the law. You frequently witness the connection between your thoughts & emotions with the things that you experience. You have meditated on the law of attraction teachings and have gained insight. You have truly realized the law of attraction and have come to see it prevalent in all living things. There is zero doubt in your mind about its existence.
See, it is pretty evident that most people who come across the law of attraction never get past the phase of intellectual understanding. They fail to see it working in their lives because they understand it but have not come to know it yet.
2: People think that Law of Attraction will bring things to them.
A common misconception about the Law of attraction is that things just come to you and happen to you.
Yes, it is true that law of attraction is the force which grants your subconscious mind the ability to take your thoughts and beliefs and introduce an arrangement of people, events, and circumstances to your life.
But, the Law of Attraction isn’t really making things happen TO you, as much as it is making things happen THROUGH you.
See, most people learn about the law of attraction and expect things to fall right into their lap.
Although it is possible for that to occur, it is not how the law operates in most cases.
Say for example, that you desire an income of $100,000. You have had this strong intention for a very long time and remain vibrationally aligned with the law of attraction
Instead of you winning a scratch off lottery for 100k tomorrow, what will happen in most cases is this:
The Law of Attraction will provoke inspired action through you.
This is the action that will always lead to progress.
It is the action which will be aligned with the people, places, and experiences that the subconscious mind is orchestrating for your life.
It is the action that is performed from a state of allowance instead of resistance.
It is the action that will get you closer and closer to the manifestation of that 100k.
So What Can I Do To…
- Fully realize the Law of Attraction?
- Live in alignment with the Law of Attraction and in a state of allowance?
Here is what you must do:
1: Stay persistent and build faith in the Law of Attraction.
You cannot expect to align your behavior with a natural law without first fully believing in it.
Let me ask you a question. Would the law of gravitation continue to have an impact on your life if you had not been taught about it in school?
Would the laws of motion still exist and influence the movement of all matter if Isaac Newton hadn’t discovered them?
Yes, they would continue to work and impact us in the same exact proportion as they always did. We are no more affected by the law of gravitation than we were three thousand years ago.
But, because we acknowledged those natural laws and studied the way that they operate, we enabled ourselves to fly beautiful aircrafts weighing 300 tons, 30,000 feet in the air, and built cars powerful enough to reach 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds.
We acknowledged those laws, studied them, aligned our behavior with their operations, and used our knowledge of them to work with them in harmony to be able to do things we could have never imagined we could do.
The law of attraction requires of us, the same exact thing.
It continues to operate in our lives in the background. But only once we build faith in it and learn about its operations, are we able to align ourselves to it, living with it in harmony – so that we can do things we never could have imagined.
A proper realization will come with persistence. Ones who have come to a realization of this law in the past – people such as Napoleon Hill, Charles Haanel, Andrew Carnegie, and James Allen just to name a few, have reaped the large rewards that came with it.
2: Understand that the Law of attraction works through you.
Consider the following quote:
We cannot fly in the face of the law asking it to do for us what it can only do through us, and we must therefore use our intelligence with the knowledge that it is acting as the instrument of a greater intelligence; and because we have this knowledge, we may and should cease from all anxiety as to the final result.“
This means that you should not blatantly wait for the law to do for you what it can only do through you.
Instead of waiting for things to randomly appear into your life, work on becoming aligned with your source. By doing so, the law of attraction will begin to work in your favor and attract to you all of the inspired action and abundance that you have asked for.
Here’s how you can align yourself
Release negative thought resistance through meditation.
Exercise. Bring your body to a sweat & get your heart rate pumping.
Change your emotional state. This is easiest to accomplish by changing your physical state. Get up and move.
Practice positive affirmations and incantations. Affirm to yourself that you are worthy and deserving of that you desire.
Go on a rampage of appreciation. Love and gratitude are two emotions which have extremely high vibrations and they bring you closer into alignment with your source.
Milk any positive aspect of your day and focus only on that one thing if you must for an extended period of time.
Obviously, these are just a few that ways you can align yourself, there are many others.
But the main point of aligning yourself is to come back to a positive state of vibration so that you can attract the positivity and abundance that you seek.
When in a place of alignment, action will be inspired by your source. Infinite intelligence will work through you to get you the results that you desire.
When you properly understand and realize this principle, you can let go of any fear or anxiety about potentially not getting what you want.
How could anything stop you if a greater intelligence is literally working through your actions to get you to what you want?
The only thing that could get in the way is your own incessant negative thinking.
This is because negative thoughts block the allowance of all the inspiration that this greater intelligence is trying to flow to you. They are of the opposite vibration and take you further away from alignment.
So then this means, that all that is required of you to get what you want is to stay in alignment.
You must keep feeding yourself positive thoughts and open the channel of positivity through which wellbeing can flow to you. And with the knowledge of this allowance, you will be completely fear free. This process will solidify your faith in the law.
