Do you consider yourself one of those people who imagined what they desired and afterward received it the same way?
We seem to be guided by a supreme force constantly. The universe works in your favor if you have good intentions and put all your heart into achieving your goals. We realize that if we have a positive outlook and give it our emotions, we will eventually attract the things we genuinely want in life. Dreams do come true, so the saying goes.
And it appears that the law of attraction is the guiding concept. Science hasn’t yet provided clear evidence that the law of attraction exists. Nonetheless, there is always something new to learn. Let’s take a simple understanding of what are the laws of attraction.
What is the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction’s guiding principles expresses hope, faith, and optimism for living a life of gratification, eternal joy, and abundance in every aspect.
When you understand the law, you understand that focusing on all the wonderful things you already have in your life can cause you to draw in more blessings. However, suppose you think negatively and concentrate on what you lack in life. In that case, you will eventually attract more negativity into your life, and the things you most desire will continue to elude you.
It sounds logical, right?
Recent years have seen a rise in the popularity of the law of attraction. Some well-known proponents of this concept include the books Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth & Happiness by Esther and Jerry Hicks and The Secret, The Power and the Magic by Rhonda Byrne.
However, many think those who support the Law of Attraction are luring people into materialism. Although most of the law of attraction teachings are solely geared toward assisting you in achieving worldly success, there is a spiritual aspect. The more true teachings truly connect the physical world with the spiritual world.
The article reads the Law of Attraction’s principles as inspirational life lessons everyone can use as motivation. Let’s take a look.
1. Abundant Mindset Leads to an Abundant Life
We’ve all heard our grandparents tell us as kids, “Don’t be sad, life opens one door when one door gets closed. You can do it.”
This makes it seem like we are constantly reminded of the abundance around us.
Realizing that the abundance of everything we could need or want is in access to all of us, constantly, from an infinite source, is the first step towards achieving it.
Abundance represents the wealth that the Almighty or the Universe or Nature (the infinite source) has in store for us in a certain sense. Be it in terms of prosperity, great relationships, good health, rich experiences in life, or contentment in everything we do.
We recognize this belief’s power until great darkness has struck our lives. Like only under dark clouds can one glimpse the silver lining. The moment we realize this, there is no turning back.
Planning for abundance begins with the conviction that YOU DESERVE to attract abundance in life and that abundance exists in all forms.
You become vibrationally suitable to receive abundance by changing your mindset from self-doubt (negative) to confident self (positive), or put; you attain an abundant mindset.
“Everything is energy, and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you can not help but get the reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy; this is Physics!”- Albert Einstein.
With an abundant mindset, we begin to recognize the opportunities to achieve our goals, fulfill our desires, overcome our shortcomings, conquer our fears, and everything that once seemed invincible.
And hurrah! We have the power to attract abundance into our lives.
2. Thoughts Create Reality
How often did your parents tell you not to think negatively because it might happen?
The law of attraction is based on the simple belief that like attracts like.
You will welcome positivity with your thoughts, and negativity will breed negative experiences.
Likewise, looking back at your life, you may completely relate to the law.
Let’s take a straightforward example of how your thoughts become a reality daily.
You believe you are not qualified to deliver this presentation at your office. That assumption makes you discouraged and makes you work less hard. The presentation did not go as planned because of a lack of effort and confidence.
The best way to put it all together is to remember a shloka (verse) from the Bhagwad Geeta that preaches the same thing but in different words-
सत्त्वानुरूपा सर्वस्य श्रद्धा भवति भारत ।
श्रद्धामयोऽयं पुरुषो यो यच्छ्रद्धः स एव सः
sattvānurūpā sarvasya śraddhā bhavati bhārata
śraddhāmayo’yaṃ puruṣo yo yacchraddhaḥ sa eva saḥ
The faith of each is by his nature, O Bharata.
Man consists of his faith; as a man’s faith is, so is he.
Positive thinking does not necessarily have magical abilities. However, having positive ideas encourages action, which raises your chances of success. Focus on what you want to achieve, and leave the rest. Put all your faith in the outcome you expect. The universe will take care of the rest.
Wayne Dyer rightly said-
“You create your thoughts, your thoughts create your intentions and your intentions create your reality.”
The fundamental principles of morality and ethics seem forgotten in a world where everyone strives to acquire wealth, status, luxury, and everything else that may provide comfort and purported happiness. Right in front of us is reality. The state of the world today makes clear what humanity’s malign intentions are becoming.
The positive always prevail over the negative, though. The development in the battle against COVID-19 accurately illustrates how coordinated efforts of bright, outstanding minds spared humanity from the end of the world.
The positive and negative are only two sides of the same coin. Both will endure forever. But your thoughts will always determine what you attract. Never, ever forget that.
The world can be made a better place to live if you adopt a positive attitude toward life and healthy thought patterns. Isn’t it?
3. Never Underestimate the Significance of Gratitude
When we thank someone, we appreciate or acknowledge their effort to bring something good into our life. A sense of satisfaction runs through our minds when we convey our gratitude. We experience positive emotions.
Likewise, it should be our habit to be thankful to the “Infinite Source” of abundance in our lives. Feeling thankful also fosters a connection with something bigger than oneself, such as the Almighty or the Universe, Nature, or any person who is a source of positivity in your life.
Don’t look for a big reason to be thankful for. Be thankful that you could experience the beautiful sunrise, have a cup of tea with your parents, lift your kid in the air to see that happiness on her face, or breathe a fresh ounce of air as simple and meaningful as that!
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” – Anonymous
Gratitude improves one’s ability to experience joyful feelings, enjoy pleasant memories, maintain excellent health, overcome challenges, and forge close personal bonds. This way, as Rhonda Bryne of The Secret says, gratitude shifts you to a higher frequency, and you will attract higher things.
Gratitude has been demonstrated to be significantly associated with improved social relationships. And good social relationships bring higher satisfaction leading to a happy life.
Thank You, indeed, is a magic word! Dwell on your thankful thoughts, cherish what you have, and it will surely multiply.
4. Patience is the Key. Not Often Will We Receive What We Desire Immediately
Do you remember the well-known Turtle and Hare story we read as kids?
Slow and steady wins the race, is what we learned from it. It’s incredible how we are taught the value of patience early on.
But as we grow up, we desire and demand instant gratification! We tend to forget that our thoughts take time to manifest into reality because we are only human. Or, to put it more simply, building the life we want requires patience. Rome was not built in a day!
That who can have patience can have what he will.
On our journey to seek what we desire, we must never forget that patience is the elusive trait needed to create change. The fact that good outcomes rarely happen quickly is to your advantage because they last longer when they do. Patience gives time for development.
When we become pessimistic about achieving our goals, we send a message to the universe that we are not willing to wait for the right moment to arrive. We lack faith that it will. Thus, it does not!
The most worthwhile things sometimes take a while to come to us. In my hometown, a proverb reads, “Sehaj pake so meetha hoe,” which translates to, “While waiting can sometimes be difficult, the rewards are unbelievably sweet.”
However, when you want to experience significant life changes, it can be challenging to cling to this message. It will take longer to manifest your desires due to your opposition to trying to be patient, which lowers your center of attraction. Instead of attracting more circumstances that lengthen your patience, reinvent your behavior while you wait.
Perseverance and consistency with an invincible will work wonders in any area where you apply your energy to change or achieve a goal, whether it be your job, your kids, your relationships, or another.
Being patient is more than just being able to wait; it’s also about how we act. Just take a few minutes to relax; slow down. Enjoy every small step you take towards a happier life while working on your goals. Declare to the universe that you will have faith in your ability to obtain what you require by exercising patience.
Last but Not the Least
I’ve always felt that there is good to be gotten from everything. Despite having no basis in scientific truth, the law of attraction offers some insightful lessons that help make life more meaningful. Why not develop a positive mindset and lead a content life?

FAQS | What are the Laws of Attraction?
Is the Law of Attraction real?
Yes, the law of attraction is real. It’s a natural law that governs the universe. Everything in the universe is made up of energy, and our thoughts are a form of energy. When we focus on positive thoughts, we attract positive things into our lives. We attract negative things into our lives when we focus on negative thoughts. The law of attraction is always at work, whether we know it.
Does the Law of Attraction work for love?
The Law of Attraction works for love. When you focus on what you want in a relationship, you will see those things manifest in your life. You must be clear about what you want and stay positive, or the Law of Attraction won’t work either.
Is manifesting a sin?
It depends on individual interpretation. Some people believe manifesting is a sin because it asks for something that is not in line with God’s will, while others believe it is simply a tool for asking for what you want. Ultimately, it is up to the individual to decide what they believe.
Is manifesting the same as praying?
There is some overlap between manifesting and praying, but they are not precisely the same. Manifesting is more of a deliberate act of focusing on what you want to create in your life, while prayer can be more of a conversation with a higher power. However, there is no right or wrong way to do either – if you find that praying helps you manifest your desires, go for it!
