The Law of Attraction The Universal Law of Success

in Visualization - Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction can be and is a very controversial subject. However, I believe anyone who disputes its power is led by fear, self-doubt, and frustration due to a lack of belief.

I KNOW that the law of attraction is natural, and I feel the evidence of this magnificent, universal power going to work in my life every minute of every day.

OK, I just wanted to get my point of view right out there so there is no question in your mind as to whether I am a believer or not I am a believer in the law of attraction.

The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction

Having said that, I will still do my best to be somewhat objective as I write this article.

For those who may have never heard of The Law of Attraction, the basic premise is that if you wish to achieve a specific goal, you can focus on precisely what you want to achieve. You will attract the circumstances and situations into your life to help you achieve your desired goal.

The Law of Attraction powers the universe and we all play a role in this even the non-believers.

The Law of Attraction: How And Why It Works

The law of attraction is a constant and universal law of the universe just as the law of gravity. If an apple is to fall from a tree 100 times out of 100, it will always fall to the earth, and it will never fall upwards, and this is the same for the law of attraction.

The Law of Attraction is the most powerful in the universe, and the best part is that we all have access to this power every second of every day of our lives.

You have the power to create the life of your dreams if you believe you can; I do not mean if you wish that you can, it has to be an inner belief or better yet a sense of knowing at the highest level of your consciousness.

If you are to achieve any level of success, you must develop and maintain a positive and expectant attitude when you expect the best and believe you can achieve the best. The Law of Attraction will work to deliver the best possible outcome.

Our dominant thoughts and state of mind are like circumstances, people, the physical environment, and other thoughts.

If you have a negative attitude you will attract negativity into every area of your life; conversely, a positive, expectant attitude attracts positive events and circumstances.

When it comes to The Law of Attraction, there is no middle ground. If you follow what this article outlines, you can have the life of your dreams.

However, if you let your fears hold you back, you can have a mediocre life at the best, void of any outstanding achievements.

There is no disputing the facts: The Law of Attraction responds to your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.

Whatever you think, feel, and believe with faith, most of the time, will ultimately determine your life experiences.

By Controlling Your Dominant Thoughts You Can Control The Outcome Of Your Entire Life.

Many are highly resistant to this concept, and it is typically those who refuse to accept responsibility for their current situation in life.

Pessimism typically rules the minds of those who refuse to accept the concepts of the law of attraction.

These types walk around with a chip on their shoulder acting as though the world owes them something when they can have, be, or do anything they want if only they had faith.

Faith defeats fear and self-doubt every time so the stronger your faith or belief is in the powers of the law of attraction the more you will attract those things into your life that consume your dominant thoughts.

We were all meant to live lives of prosperity and success, no man or woman was put here on earth to live a life of mediocrity. Most people fear success because there will always be some fear and failure attached to all success.

The difference between those that achieve high levels of success and those that do not is “Fear.” When you can overcome the fear of success you will certainly begin to experience the tremendous effects of the law of attraction working in your favor.

The Fear of Failure Creates a Failure Out of Those That Fear.”

Video On The Law of Attraction And Positive Thinking

I am very passionate about defending the merits of The Law of Attraction because, in essence, it is on the same playing field as positive thinking.

As I have repeatedly stated throughout this site, one who maintains a positive attitude sprinkled with enthusiasm and optimism will, without question, attract positive people, results, and events into one’s life.

The greatest gift you could ever give to yourself would be to learn all you can about The Law of Attraction and then practice and perfect it because once you do your greatest dreams and desires will soon become your reality.

Your life will be forever changed once you believe with faith that The Law of Attraction responds to your every thought and feeling.

Aligning your thoughts and feelings with what you want for your life rather than what you do not wish is the basis behind The Law of Attraction.

Here Is a Terrific Article That I Came Across While Doing Some Research On Applying The Law of Attraction
The author, Kathy Hadley, explains the Law of Attraction in easy-to-understand steps that anyone can follow. The basic premise of the article is a three-step process to engage the law of attraction; first, you must ask, which you do through your dominant thoughts, as I explained in this article, and next, you receive by allowing your desires to come to you which for most is the hardest part of the entire process.

To receive the good the universe has in store for you, you must overcome your blocks, which you cause by questioning or not having faith in that the law of attraction will deliver to you that which you place your most dominant thoughts upon.

Hi Emily,

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your insights.

Have a great day!

Emily Smith 2 July 28, 2013

Thanks For Sharing this nice Topic
The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.[1][2][3][4] This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy.[citation needed] One example used by a proponent of the law of attraction is that if a person opened an envelope expecting to see a bill, then the law of attraction would “confirm” those thoughts and contain a bill when opened. A person who decided to instead expect a check might, under the same law, find a check instead of a bill.[5]

Although there are some cases where positive or negative attitudes can produce corresponding results (principally the placebo and nocebo effects), there is no scientific basis to the law of attraction.[6]”

WOW, that was a really nice message, Doug. I am really glad that the site is helping you to fight negative feelings. Just remember if you can keep your mind focused on the good things in life and think of all you have to be grateful for it will be hard to stay depressed for long.

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner but I had a very extended stay in the hospital and I am now just getting back to work.

God Bless You, My Friend!

I had to leave you a comment, lately I have been feeling a little down so I have been reading through different sites about the law of attraction, positive thinking, how to get out of depression just looking for something to help me get over the hump.

Well after reading through dozens of sites I keep finding myself coming back to this particular site. I can tell that you really write from your heart and it seems like you really try to help people, I just find that to be so commendable and I wanted to let you know that your site has helped me and how much I appreciate what you are doing on here. I have never left a comment on a website before and regardless of the free ebook I would have wanted to thank you no matter what.

So here is my heartfelt Thank You!

Thank you so much Georgina! I am glad to hear that you are not giving up on your dreams because giving up will absolutely get you nowhere but when you chase your dreams with passion catching them is a sure thing.

Take Care!

Hi Mary,
Thank you for your comment and your insight, I am sure that it will be helpful to my other readers.

Yes it can be challenging for both the beginner and for someone like me who has been practicing visualization for years but the one thing that you can always hold onto is the fact that even when you may feel like it is not working it most likely is at least in some small way. With all my health challenges there have been times when I would get so discouraged I would question my own beliefs but I think that is only human. Sometimes we may want something so badly that it causes us to lose focus on the process which inhibits our ability to adhere to our beliefs.

Trust me everyday of my life is a struggle and if I were to listen to my doctors and just throw in the towel I would have been gone years ago. Even with my most recent challenges I have to admit that I felt like giving up and for a few days I had given up but I am thankful that I have a good friend that really cares about and he is not afraid to tell me when I am acting like a quitter. It doesn’t matter how strong you are there will always be those times that really challenge you and your personal strength but those times will pass and in the end they will make you stronger.

Again Thank you for contributing!
Best Wishes!

You have certainly already heard the old saying ‘be careful what you wish for’. It practically summarises what creating your own destiny is about. You imagine it and it falls on your lap. You create the thoughts and life turns your thoughts into things. Thoughts become things. Bad things or good things. That which you fear the most could meet you half way. In theory, according to the law of attraction or creative visualization or quantum theory (we could go on forever as several names are used to define the same law), you can create the life you want by visualising whatever it is that you want to happento yourself. Easy isn’t it?
Not so much, unfortunately. This law only works if we imagine with intention and feeling. What we want to create will only manifest into our lives if we believe we have it already within our grasp, if we are sure that that is what we really want (law of intension) and if the thought of having such thing (s) gives us a feeling of joy. I have ready several books on the subject including ‘The Secret’ and ‘Creative Visualization’ and I have also read some of the work of Dr Deepak Chopra. Mastering the Law of Attraction is not an easy task for a beginner like me and many others out there. I feel the most difficult part of it is ‘the detachment from the outcome’ or ‘learning to let go’. When we are in desperate need of something that could change our life for the better and make us happy such as finding the dream job, it is very difficult not to constantly worry about it and put the various ‘what if’ behind us….
