MANIFEST YOUR DREAMS: LAW OF ATTRACTION
The law of attraction has managed to spark a lot of controversy with many people alleging that it doesn’t work. I believe that as human beings, we all are different. What we like and dislike varies from one person to another. While some have applauded this law, especially the spiritual leaders, other people have been at the forefront trying to discredit the whole notion. But what exactly does this law of attraction entail?
What is the law of attraction?
I believe that most of us have heard about the scientific principle that states that like forces attract. Well, this is basically what the law of attraction means in a nutshell.
That as a human being, we give out a certain kind of energy to the world. What we give out, is exactly what we receive. This just means that we attract the kind of energy we exude. Giving out negative vibes will only bring you negativity in your life, and when you have positive energy all around you, that is what you will attract. In a way, we are our own creators. If the universe gives us that which we desire, doesn’t that make us the creators of our own destiny? We think about different things every day. For instance, a day can’t pass without me thinking about a million things, ranging from my life, my past, my present and about the people around me. What the law of attraction maintains is that through our thoughts, we can control what happens to us. The occurrences surrounding our lives are determined by what we think about, and our actions.
Unlike most of the new age philosophies we have nowadays, the law of attraction is quite different. The law goes all the way back to the 1900’s.Thomas Troward developed this idea back then, and it has been adopted by many philosophers we have today. The law has continued to gain popularity worldwide, to even being advocated for by celebrities like Oprah Winfrey. The law is so good that it even has a book and a movie based on its tenets. Heard of ‘the secret?’ This was a movie that was released based on the law of attraction to show us what the law was and to give us a deeper understanding of the whole thing. You will realize most of us are skeptical and hardly believe in such ideas. We cannot all like the same stuff, but it can’t hurt trying to find a deeper meaning in life. We have sunk in the habit of worrying and being negative about everything that we rarely enjoy life. Take a moment, sit back and just visualize all the things that are working in your life. This will ultimately give you a sense of positivity, and you will suddenly feel better about a lot of things, even those that may not be going well.
How can you attract money into your life?
The law of attraction says that it’s all in our minds. Our thoughts determine how things go in our lives. Even when things are going wrong, I have tried looking at the upside, and this has made me feel better almost instantly. Why is this important? The law only goes to show that if you need money in your life, you first have to want the money, then you will need to think about getting the money and voila! Basically, you cannot attract money in your life when all you keep thinking is how you cannot get some money no matter what you do. Negativity and doubt only make it harder for you to prosper.
You have to think positively, and surely, this will spark some ideas on how you can go out there and make money. Don’t get me wrong; you cannot just visualize money and get it, without lifting a finger. Your actions will determine if you get this money or not. When you think, you should follow that up with subsequent actions. So how do you go about it?
- Positive affirmations
Keep saying that you need more money in your life and you believe that you will get it. Having a mantra and saying what you need often will make it a reality eventually.
- Create goals
Come up with ways on how to achieve your reality.in this instance; you can even create a vision board with different ideas on how you can make more money. The board is to guide you to your destination. Therefore, you have to follow what you set your mind on.
- Sit back and watch it happen
When you start acting on your goals, you will be surprised when things start working for you. One of the goals I set this year was to start an online business. I set my mind to it, became confident, and now, my business is growing and doing better than I expected.
How to manifest your destiny
We create our own destiny. Have you heard about creating your little heaven here on earth? This only means that we should strive to build a good life for ourselves and enjoy it while we still can. Our thoughts, emotions and our actions pave the way to our destiny. You may wonder how this happens. It’s quite simple! What we constantly think about as we go about our everyday lives, becomes a belief. This is because more often than not, we reflect on the same things. Without even knowing it, our beliefs influence the decisions we make, which ultimately shapes the reality and our destiny. Let’s get critical for a minute. Think about the smallest object on earth and the most complex objects. These items did not just come about. They were a product of a process that involved endless thinking. It’s these thoughts that the creators relied on to make the decision to produce the objects. The same philosophy applies to our daily lives. You may not be aware of your thoughts most of the time because they are in our subconscious, but when these ideas are manifested, it becomes our destiny.
You should, therefore, strive to always think positively about all situations. Even when all the forces in your body want you to curse and wallow and lose hope, you should never give in to such urges. Be that ray of hope even to those who have lost theirs. Smile often and tell yourself that everything will work out in the end. Try to find the silver lining in a bad situation. This will become your destiny.
How to stop disbelief and doubt from creeping in
I have always been a realist. It did not always work for me because of most of the time; I ended up becoming so cynical that most of my friends started avoiding me. This kept going on until I realized that I needed to start being positive, and believe that things would work out.
- Refuse to doubt
It’s okay to question things every once in a while. After all, you should not believe everything you see or hear. What you don’t do, however, is let these doubts dominate your mind and your thoughts. The moment they start creeping in your mind, do all you can to not think about them. This is because, when you are in doubt constantly, it becomes a habit and suddenly, you start giving out negative vibes to people around you. Sometimes when everything around you seems to be falling apart, it becomes hard to look at the bright side. Instead, you wallow for days on end not realizing that this won’t change the situation.
- Change the narrative
When you realize that you are beginning to have doubts, engage your mind in other activities. Start thinking about other good things in your life, and you will notice the doubts are gone.
- Build self-confidence
Questioning yourself and your capabilities is often a sign that you do not believe in yourself. Work on building your self-esteem once again. Start on a project you didn’t think you can handle and see it to completion.
Push yourself to do things that you were initially afraid of doing. You will be surprised to realize there is nothing you cannot achieve one you set your mind to do it. Having doubts will prevent you from manifesting your destiny. This is because the disbelief will block all the positive thoughts trying to camp in your mind, giving way to hopelessness and negativity. The law of attraction leaves no room for doubt. When you start visualizing good things happening in your life, you have to believe that they will happen. You have to be open-minded and trust the process, knowing fully well that some things may not go according to plan but waiting to find out, and believing that something else will work out. There is no other way around it.

Discover how to use the law of attraction to improve your life
Knowing about the law of attraction is one thing, and realizing that you can use it to change your life completely is another. If you feel like your life is at a standstill, you can try following the tips I will give you and watch as your life turns around.
- Connect with your inner self
The first step is getting in touch with your inner self. You cannot know what you want in your life if you don’t know who you are as a person. There are different ways in which you can achieve this, like meditating.
- Know what you want in your life and ask for it
You have to know what you want out of life. Whether it’s a new house, kids, a new car or even better relationships. I realized that we know what we want at the back of our minds, but we are often too afraid to acknowledge these needs. It’s the only way to a more fulfilling life, trust me.
After acknowledging what you want, ask for it.by this, I mean create positive affirmations and keep reminding yourself of this need every day. For instance, you can keep saying ‘ I want a new house.’
- Create goals and work towards them
Our thoughts are useless if not followed by actions. You have to develop ways on how you will get what you want. If you want better friendships that uplift you, you have to begin by letting go of the friendships that don’t help you, to be able to create room for better ones.
- Positive thinking
You cannot let doubts flood your life. You have to have positive thoughts to be able to give positive vibes to other people. Exuding energy and self-confidence will go a long way in turning your life around. Do not forget to be thankful every day. Sadly, we cannot acquire everything we want in life. But when you think about those people suffering out there, then you know you have so much to appreciate out of life.
How to use thoughts to attract wealth
Our minds are always working even when we seem to be resting. It’s all in our subconscious, our thoughts, and our emotions. How can we turn these ideas into becoming our reality to gain more wealth and ultimately, financial prosperity?
- Having positive affirmations
You have to keep telling yourself that you need more money, that you deserve it and you will get it. You just need to start thinking about something to make it happen. Think about wealth all the time, when you wake up and before you go to sleep. Let the notion stick to your subconscious.
- Realign your thoughts
What is in our subconscious may not always be manifested to us. It is now up to you to align your thoughts into your conscious mind so that you can start to think about them actively.Think about what wealth means to you and what acquiring it will signify. You can also create a list of ways on how you will get to your desired point.
- Dispel all doubts
Do not give doubts any room in your mind. When you start questioning yourself, you will not achieve your desire, which is getting wealthy. Let only positive thoughts reign your mind even when you start thinking about all the reasons why you won’t attract wealth. When this happens, counter it with thoughts of why you deserve to be happy and financially stable.
By now, you know well that you cannot get anything easily, you have to sweat for it. You already have set plans so this will be easy for you. Implement those plans and watch as you kick start your journey into financial freedom.
- Be happy for other people
When you are jealous of other peoples’ accomplishments, you are not doing yourself any favors. What you are doing is blocking your path to financial abundance.
When you are genuinely happy for others, then the world is bound to reward you by granting your desires.
- Help the less fortunate
You can have a lot of money today, and wake up to nothing the next day. You should learn to share your wealth with the people who have so little.
When you hold on to what you have, the universe sees no reason to add more to you, but when you give out part of what you have, so much more is added to what you have left. Here is the deal. To be rich and wealthy are not the ultimate goals in life. They sure do make life comfortable but you should first aspire to be happy and be at peace with yourself. Stop using all your energy in focusing on what you do not have. Instead, be grateful that you are alive and able to change the course of your life. This is the only way you will have positive thoughts that will ultimately result to the world responding in the same way back to you.
With the law of attraction, you only get what you give out. Never forget that. Let your thoughts and actions be good so that you can manifest all other things including wealth and prosperity into your life. Patience is a virtue you are required to muster throughout this process. You have to know that you can’t just ask for something and it’s granted to you immediately. I learnt that I enjoy things more when it took me some time to acquire them. Makes you appreciate what you have, and the effort it took to attain it. Your destiny is the only thing you are in control of in this life. Make it worth your while!
