The Law of Attraction is the Most Fundamental Law of the Universe
The principle that like attracts like is just one law of the Universe. One of the more than a dozen. There are other principles that come before this one. To place emphasis on it as if it were the only important thing to know is wrong. The law of attraction is nothing new, it isn’t special and it isn’t the only thing there is.
This principle is an overall tendency to gravitate toward what is similar to you. Your desires and tendencies tend to stick around your life. Whereas, what you are neutral to tends to not happen to you. You get back what you put out. What you fear the most also tends to happen to you.
The law of attraction is not a fairy wand you can wave around and make things happen. What you can create are dreams you are really committed to. Dreams that are beyond wavering and indecisiveness. Dreams that over time can come to life.
Reality Creation and Manifestation – Frederick Dodson
I understand and sympathize with the desire to have a fairy wand that can make things happen. That just isn’t how it works. The law of attraction is about reaping what you sow or putting it another way, you are what you eat.
If your tendency is to be grumpy, you will find that the world is generally grumpy. If your tendency is to be grateful, you will find that the world is generous.
This principle goes back to yesterday’s post. What you put out you will get back. If you want something in life then be it. You see; people want life to hand them things without putting out the effort. In reality that rarely happens. I wish I knew the secret to some people’s fortunate lives but I don’t. What I do know is that when you change your perception you change your reality.
While thinking about these posts I was reminded of a time recently where I had an opportunity to hear a leading Law of Attraction speaker. Let’s just say I was underwhelmed. The general impression I got was that this person once was a shining example and actually taught a lot of people really important messages. That time was a long time ago and since that time, they hadn’t grown. They were still exactly the same person they used to be and I honestly got the impression that they were puzzled and none to happy about the lack of enthusiasm toward their current message.
I bring this up as an example. Growth and change are part of the human condition. You must grow and change, life honestly doesn’t’ give you an option. What it does give you an option to do is direct that change. So since life is forcing change upon you why not direct it the way you want? Seize the opportunity to become who you want to be.
Use the law of attraction to your advantage and let go of the things that you no longer want in your life. Become who you want to be. If you want to be happy, chose it. Accept that things are not always going to be exactly as you want and be happy anyway. It really is your choice. If all you can do is show gratitude, then start there. If all you can do is be happy about your pet, or flowers, then start there. The key is to just start. Focus on those things that make you happy or bring you joy and give the other things less of your attention and much less of your emotional space. In time you will find that joy and happiness are bigger than they used to be and the other is smaller. Keeping adding things that make you happy and getting rid of things that don’t. It won’t happen overnight but I bet pretty quickly you will see that a distinct change has been made.
The truth is, it is all up to you and the choices you make every day. Chose who you want to be.
