So what is the Law of Attraction?
I have interpreted it as a universal law that states that your thoughts are vibrations that you send off into the universe and it is capable of attracting similar vibrations i.e. circumstances, events into our lives. Therefore, everything that’s coming to your life are attracted to you by your thoughts, what you are thinking .
Law of Attraction is not a new theory, it is a law of nature which began at the beginning of time, it is as impartial as the law of gravity .Rhonda Bryne , the creator of The Secret came to know about this law, she began tracing it back through history and discover that all the people who knew and understand the law of attraction were the greatest people in history : Plato, Shakespeare, Newton, Einstein, Lincoln , Beethoven, Hugo , Edison , Emerson etc.
Bob Doyle in The Secret says that : The law of attraction doesn’t care whether you perceive something to be good or bad or whether you don’t want it or you want it. It’s responding to your thoughts. So if you’re looking at a mountain of debt, feeling terrile about it, it’s the signal you’re putting out into the Universe “ I feel really bad because of all this debt I’ve got.” You’re just affirming to yourself. That’s what you are going to get more.
Understanding this law leads us to the ability to create for ourselves the kind of life and outcomes we desire. But is that just it? I often get remarks from people "so that's it? I just think about it and POOF! I get what I want? ". Of course not. If that were the case people would get what they want all the time. Those that have understood the law of attraction, knows that thought is just the beginning.
The 3 Steps The Secret shares with us that the Law of attraction has a 3 step process for creation. The first step: ASK what you want - You need to have a very clear image in your mind of exactly what it is you want. This is the thought part. The second step: BELIEVE you will get it - Believe that it is already yours. Have faith knowing that it is yours. This is where the Universe starts to comply with your thoughts i.e. where the similar circumstances gets attracted to the thoughts you have begun to put out. The third step: RECEIVE it - Feel the feelings of having it. Hold it within you and enjoy that feeling. This is also where you need to be aware of what is being attracted to you and take necessary action.
