As promised, a blog post on the Law of Attraction (LoA). When I initially wrote about this in my last post, I decided I’d wait for some time, a specified time period, before I wrote this post, so that I could practise the LoA some more (considering I do think I’m still a ‘nooby’ in this area), and hopefully collect some empirical evidence to show for it in the meantime. The specified time period I set for myself hasn’t ended yet, but it’s a principle of the LoA that if you push it, it won’t happen, so I decided to write this post at this time anyway, and perhaps at some point in the future, when I write about this topic again, having gained some more experience, I’ll see how my perceptions have changed – where I was (where I am now), and how far I’ve come.
The LoA has many aspects to it, many principles which form it. There are ‘core’ topics, and more advanced ones as well. Even if I tried to go through all the ‘core’ ones, I think I wouldn’t be as comprehensive as I would’ve liked, and so I’ll only talk briefly of the ones which formed my experience up until now, and with further posts, explore the topic more and more, hopefully reaching a satisfactory level of completeness at some point in a future time.
I’d like to start with the principle which most excites me, and this is synchronicity. I’ve read that this is one of the commonest ways the universe uses to ‘speak’ to you, or at least show you that you’re on the right path. Synchronicity is experienced differently by each of us, so it can’t be that if you don’t see 11:11 each time you check your phone for the time, the LoA isn’t working for you. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen this number (or number 7 for that matter, another supposedly common-occurrence number) for the time I’ve been practising the LoA. I think synchronicity can be as simple as arriving at the bus stop at a time which is most convenient for you to take the bus, without rush, but also without waiting time. I know this may sound just as a coincidence, particularly to the LoA-sceptics, and indeed, I can’t say that I’m a LoA go-hard believer either! I’ve only been practising this for a very short time! I guess it’s just, seeing these things happening as you go through your day, and they add up, trust me. It almost feels as though the universe is working in your favour. Don’t get me wrong though, there are bad days too! You can have a day where everything just goes wrong, but I think the important lesson here, another of the core principles, perhaps falling slightly into the more advanced topics, is to make sure that you use these bad days to your advantage, to try to turn them around, and see how the entire day changes if you keep pushing against the bad things that are happening!
In any case, the reason synchronicity is my favourite part of the LoA should be clear – it’s more concrete (as concrete as it can be, haha), than just manifesting, and meditating, and believing. To be honest, meditating is not my thing at all. But yet again, maybe that’s because I haven’t spent any time at all practising it! How are you supposed to learn without practice? I’ve been quite lazy at this part of the LoA, and it’s something I’ll try to engage in soon enough. Manifesting is something that I’ve only just began trying to do, and to be honest, I won’t be able to say that it works until I see some material results. It’s easy to point to success with positive thinking and good deeds, but with manifesting, that’s a whole different story. Nonetheless, I’m open, and I don’t doubt its potential. This is important.
Never doubt. Doubting creates a wall, a barrier to what you want. It messes with the process. This is one of the hardest things to do, to be completely honest with you. It’s hard not to doubt. Even if you say, as I just did, I don’t doubt, I believe, you have to master your subconscious mind to make sure you actually do that. Consciously, you may, but subconsciously? That’s the most important part. Again, I would class the subconscious mind an advanced topic, and therefore one of the hardest areas of the LoA. One could argue that the LoA is the subconscious mind, though I do believe that the conscious mind is the first step, and only through mastering the conscious mind can one master the subconscious. I also think that the subconscious mind is one of the things which require time for someone to actually see the results of their efforts. It’s a slow process. Not only is it slow, but the daily life and the conscious mind often result in a lot of back and forth for the subconscious mind. You may think you have it all figured out, that you’re positive, and manifesting, and the universe is all on your side, and then the next morning you wake up with a message that throws you completely off! Getting back on track clearly becomes easier with practice, but practice needs time, and this is my reasoning for the subconscious mind complete.
Anyway, I realise that this post is getting long. I’ll be back with an update soon. Or as soon as I need to, at least. I need to have something more to say, after all. I don’t aim to convince you about the LoA (I don’t think I could even if I tried to be honest). I think that for the LoA to have even the slightest chance of working for you, you have to seek it out for yourself, and really throw yourself into its practice, allowing yourself to experience what it can give you, all with the premise that you also put in the work. Until next time, give it a try! Watching YouTube videos (my motivation for everything nowadays) really helped me get on track – now, here’s a concrete tip!
