Such a relief to know that we are not only on planet earth that provides everything that we need, but inside a galaxy in which everything works in relation to everything else. The law of attraction is said to be at work in every decision we make, through the people that we meet, and anything that you can imagine encountering in your lifetime. Although the law of attraction has been a topic in the last decade that people put faith in just as if it were a religion, it has been supported by science for centuries. It’s the idea that like attracts like. We attract the things that we want by focusing on the end goal. All things work the way they do because of action and with action comes reaction. The initial decisions that we choose sets the outcome. Nothing ever exist entirely alone.
I like to think of the law of attraction as the universe supporting me, just as long as I’m honest and working towards something that benefits me and the world right back. However, the LOA can feed the negative if you’re putting out negative. Every area of our lives are affected by the law of attraction. Some mornings I can wake up and say “Today is going to be good” and I can more than guarantee that it will be just that, simply by giving life through my voice to it. I proclaim something that I faithfully believe in, setting my brain up for a positive outlook throughout the day.
Eleven months ago I found myself working a job forty-five minutes away from my home, while also finishing my senior year of undergrad. This forced me to only work on the weekends due to the distance; which caused a huge decrease in my income. I initially took this opportunity because it definitely moved me to an area in my career that I am now still proud of. However, I hated that the opportunity wasn’t closer to where I lived and how much it interfered with school.
During my employment at this company, I was also offered to move to a higher position that would more than support my monthly expenses and lifestyle. The catch was I could not finish school, or I would have to wait and hopefully the opportunity would be there when I did finish. For a few weeks, I was conflicted on which route to take. I knew that school was always a goal I had set for myself, but I couldn’t seem to envision making enough money after I graduated to support myself. I can remember growing unkind to my workplace because I felt that it wasn’t giving me back what I deserved in an easy way. I couldn’t understand why it wasn’t lining up perfectly for me.
A few weeks into the school-year, I decided that finishing school was more important to me, after spending thousands of dollars and hours of hard work. I also realized that driving to that job was no longer something I wanted to do, because I felt that I was wasting money. I really loved the brand that I worked for, and so I began to search whether there was something closer that would allow me to still work with the company but closer to my home. I wanted so bad to find relief from something that no longer fit into my life. Long story short, I tweeted that I was giving myself two weeks to find a new job. I tweeted this without fear nor doubt that I could find a new job, and so quickly.
I wholeheartedly feel that getting that new job was the direct affect of the law of attraction. In this case, I wrote my vision down. I believed in it. I slept through it, knowing that it was already taken care of for me. Seven days later, I felt like I had done something amazing for myself. That is, just believing in what I wanted. Also, I was given a new job while still being able to work for the brand I loved so dearly.
This is just one example of my experience with the LOA. I could seriously go on and on about how letting go of notions has brought me closer to getting the things that add so perfectly to my life now, but in such healthy ways.
I lead a fairly positive life, but I am not always happy. I do not always get the things that I desire. I am aware that the universe works for me and will not bring me the things that I do not need. I am aware of life’s flow and how it can wear down on me if I am not careful. I am not a hippie or smiling at you because I’m high. I choose the good because I know that all of the good things comes from that. And that makes it so simple for me.
Techniques to hold on to:
When you’re feeling low, write it down. After you’ve gotten it all out, make a list of the things that you’re grateful for. Those will be the things that will add positive light in your mind when things seem shitty.
I know this is cheesy, but if you’re a visual being then make a vision board. Cut out, draw, paint, write the things you want! Do this without naming the road or obstacles it will take to get there. Place this board in a space that you frequent so that you’ll always be reminded that you’re working towards something great!
Affirmations are so important. Speak the truth and speak the future. Say “I am happy” versus “I wish I wasn’t sad all of the time”. Say “My relationship is healthy” versus “Things will never get better”. Look in the mirror and say “You are beautiful” instead of “I wish I didn’t have scars on my face”.
You have a life where if you don’t like something, you can always change it. Just be aware that complaining solves nothing, so you might as well put your energy into something good so that you can be good. Focus on the things that you do want and not on what you don’t want. Remember that obsessing over the outcome leads to doubt and disappointment. Let go of your expectations and trust!
