Does the law of attraction work?

The Attraction

The Attraction (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’ve been reading stuff about the Law of Attraction lately.  The simple version of the law of attraction is:

  1. Know what you want.
  2. Ask the universe for it.
  3. Feel and behave as if the object of your desire is on its way.
  4. Be open to receiving it.

This definition omits two vital factors.  The first of these is self-sabotaging beliefs.  You may state that you want to be wealthy, but you subconscious mind may be giving you conflicting messages:

‘I’m not worthy to be wealthy.’ ‘Spiritual people are not wealthy.’ ‘I don’t deserve this’

Usually these self-sabotaging or self-limiting beliefs are grounded in the messages we received as a child. Our parents may have told us such ‘truths’ as: money doesn’t grow on trees, it’s our lot not to have much money, money is the root of all evil.

So, in order even to feel that a desired outcome is on its way, you need to get rid of the negative messages that your subconscious mind is telling you. There is no simple way to do this, but you can start by watching how often your mind dwells on negative thoughts and see if you can develop a positive attitude to life.

The other factor missing from the above definition is ACTION. You cannot sit on your couch everyday wishing for a new Mercedes car and expect it to magically be delivered to your door.  You have to go out there and take massive action to earn the money to afford the car. The chances of the car appearing without any action on your part is practically nill.

What is more important than the question: does the law of attraction work? is the attitude you bring to life. Develop a positive optimistic mind set, and be motivated to make the effort to working towards your goals. Then you will attract what you want in your life.
