The Law of Attraction - Some Basics

There has been a great deal of attention given to the Law of Attraction. The release of the book and subsequent movie The Secret, as well as movies such as What the Bleep Do We Know? have helped spur the interest in this seemingly metaphysical idea with a scientific basis. The basic principal is that everything is always attracting everything else. It's the basis of gravity, why our planet stays together, why the moon spins around us and why we spin around the sun. On a more personal level, the Law of Attraction is used to explain why we have certain situations in our lives. We think about them. What you hold true in your mind will come true in your life. You can attract the very situations that you desire just by thinking about them.

This is a stunning idea. But it is often misinterpreted and misapplied, leading to disappointment and abandoning the system altogether. Many people, upon first learning about the Law of Attraction, believe that all they have to do is think about something and it will come true. They think that if they want something good in their life that if they just keep thinking about it, it will happen. They often expect immediate results, and expect that they won't have to do anything else to get it. But that's not quite how it works.

1. Every thought that you hold in your mind has the potential to draw people, things or situations into your life.

This means the good thoughts can draw things to your life. But so can the bad ones. Our thoughts about ourselves become self-fulfilling prophecy. If you think that you are clumsy, you will be clumsy. This then reinforces the thought that you are clumsy, locking you into a vicious cycle. It gets worse when our thoughts are contradictory of one another. If you really want that raise, but don't think you'll get it, which do you think is going to happen?

2. There is a difference between affirmations and denials. The Universe turns denials into affirmations.
