Law Of Attraction - it works

32 replies
I wanted to create this post because, IMO, the law of attraction DOES indeed work and I wanted to give you some positive energy about that. It is working in my life right now and giving me things and creating coincidences that are just unbelievable sometimes.

However, it was not always this way. I have been trying techniques I've read about for many years and could not see results. If you aren't seeing the results and you're trying to get it to work for you, let me tell you what I think about why it may not be working for you.

I think, that the one thing you need to create positive things in your life is belief. You need to believe, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the thing you want to create is already here and it's on it's way. If you believe, you will think, talk and act differently all the time, every hour, every day, every week, every month.

I know you've probably heard this before, but most people, myself included, THINK they believe, when in reality, they don't.

You'll know if you believe something by what you say and what you do. You can SAY something positive, but if the thing you say has any doubt mixed in, the feeling of doubt will come through and it will not happen.

For instance, if you try to get every last bit of mayonnaise out of the jar with your knife, because mayonnaise is expensive and you want to use every last bit, you're thinking lack instead of abundance.

If you spend 1/2 hour looking for free parking on the street of a big city, instead of paying $5.00 in the parking garage, you're living in lack, not abundance.

For instance, I used to meditate on some mantras such as, "I am successful" "I have freedom" "I have a lot of money coming to me" etc. etc. in the hopes that repeating these phrases would get my subconscious to believe them. I thought that repeating them would work. It didn't. I know now that I never got to the point of believing.

If you're doubting if the law of attraction works, it won't work. Of course, when you don't see results, you doubt. And doubt will keep it from you. So, it's a vicious cycle that needs to be broken. How?

This is the question that I don't know for your situation. I think it's different for everyone.

For me, the breakthrough came when I inherited some money recently. Now, I want to say that it was not a lot of money at all, not enough to quit my job, live a luxury life, nothing like that. But it did make me believe that I had money and could create more. Right then, my entire attitude, believe and thought process began to change and so too did my life. The way I lived my life changed completely.

Now, I don't pass the garage to look for free parking. I don't even think "should I look for free parking first, and if I can't find it, I'll go in the garage?" No, I just pull into the garage. It's only $5.00 and I can afford that. You see? I could have afforded $5.00 before, but my thinking was telling me to look for free parking first to save money.

I know to some of you, saving that $5.00 is important. But it is holding you back. That is the truth of it, IMO.

IMO, the law of attraction is easy to understand, but difficult to master. If it was easy, everyone in the world would have what they wanted, right?

So, if you're into getting this right, I'd recommend the following books you may not have heard of: (Just Google them or look on Amazon)

"Money and The Law Of Attraction" by Abraham Hicks (the book that preceded The Secret - this book was my law of attraction bible)

"The Science Of Getting Rich" by Wallace Wattles (I think) This book is in the public domain. You can download a free pdf. It's old, but the concepts hold true today.

    I learned a crazy manifestation technique from the people over at Higher Balance,

    Basically you clear your mind, go into a truthful space in your heart and think of what you want within reason, then add a dash of expectation.

    I think it works best with good matters of the heart

    well this is a good post..

    the law of attraction never doesn't work .. but it works according to what our total thoughts feelings and actions create ..

    you can think positive about weight loss..but if you keep using the parking angel to get the closest parking spot to any place you can ,,. you are saying..the thin and trim body would be nice..but i much prefer being a lazy azz .. a small part of abundance ....and there are so many haywire money beliefs ,, that need to be worked through..and deep-seated worthiness issues ,,

    if you are not creating 1 20th of what you can with the money you have now ,, it will never be enough ,, a million dollars plopped in your lap..would probably destroy your life ..

    technically i have been below the poverty line ..the last several years ..for a while i had no money coming in i have just enough but alway close to running out..and i am about to step that up to more than enough..or enough for what i am ready to create ..

    I am not and never will be poor ..and most of my monet trouble where really good excuses ..oh i can do that ..don't have the m,oney .. i will eat better when i have the money ..blah blah blah ..

    we are creators ,, we attract based on what we are ready to create .. we either creat by default or by intent ..

    =you don't attract a heart attack.. you create it through long term bad habits or heavy amounts of stress ..

    the law of attraction could infact be deluging you with messages and chances to eat healthier .. but have free will and can ignore it ,,

    the longer term perspective for what you are doing now how it will effect you in 20 30 40 years ,,

    the more you can attract the things you need to create better choices and healthier lifestyles today

    the critical factor weather you can get Law of attraction to work .. in you favor ..

    is do you believe life or thing in you life are happening to you ..or that you have a role in everything that happens in you life ..

    is life happening to you..or by you and for you ..

    if you only have 20 buck in you pocket..and you start getting ideas for something to cook that will last you a few days ,,

    you need to really be willing to delve into why you keep creating the same negative stuff over and over..just what are you getting from it .

    Absolutely. This has been proven in neuro linguistic programming. People don't view reality, they view their perception of reality. You can have an auditorium of people getting money making information, some people will apply it right away and make a fortune while others will not succeed with it or apply it. The difference is the individual and where their prime mover is at. One person thinks about prosperity constantly and thus is constantly attuned to opportunities, while another person lives in fear and thus only sees the 'opportunities' for things to go bad.

    Thanks for the positive vibes. It is true that a small thing like paying for the parking space can determine how the rest of your day turns out. For example if you don't pay for parking, you might spend the next 20 minutes looking for a free one, in addition to the time lost, there's also the frustration that pulls you down and might keep you in the gloomy mood for the rest of your day, which in turn influences your performance and relationship with others.

    You're right, Tony, that belief is the crux of the matter. But the key thing is not so much engineering the belief that you can have something, rather it's dealing with the unconsciously held negative beliefs that block the flow of good things coming into your life.

    The engine of creation in your life is your unconscious mind. A computer won't work properly if it has a virus on the hard drive. Likewise, the unconscious won't operate properly when it's burdened with negative beliefs.

    When you delete these 'viruses' of negative belief, your mind gets clearer, and 'good luck' and better circumstances will begin to appear quite effortlessly without you having to focus on any goal in particular.

    When you do choose to focus on a particular goal, it will show up so much more easily with a clear mind.

    The Sedona Method (AKA The Release Technique) and the Option Method are two great ways of 'de-bugging' your mind and getting clear. They both require some time and commitment, but if you persist with them you will get clearer and clearer and better at manifesting.

    You can learn the option method for free here. Type 'sedona method explained' into YouTube & you'll find some good videos explaining it. And here's a post I made detailing Larry Crane's famous 'butt method' for manifesting.

    Happy manifesting

    Thanks Simonf I've heard about the Sedona method, but not the other. I'll have to check them both out.

    The problem with most people, and me included a few years ago, it's very difficult to get to the place of believing without the physical evidence. Believing on faith is not so easy, but it's what is needed.

    That's why I could never go forward much, even though I repeated positive thoughts - thinking the subconscious mind would start believing. That's why these techniques might be a good thing for many.

        and we are made in the image of a creator who starts with words ..

        the words we use and the wat we use them are huge part of what we either attrackt or create .

        wealthy people use the language a lot differently than poor people..and poor people are trained to use it to stay poor ..

        look at in the modern world where most people are told the most they should aspire to be is middle class ..

    I read a free and short 60 page LoA book recently, no BS just straight to the point. I realised how much stuff I'd been missing out so I started to apply it...and things have really started manifesting for me man! I certainly believe it works too, as long as you know how to apply it correctly!

    I love this post Tonester!

    The Law of Attraction really does work if you do truly believe! Your belief has to become bigger than your doubts and fears and to do it, visualizing your goals throughout each day, as soon as you wake up and right before bed. Just feel the goal grasp your soul with joy. It'll seem so surreal. But that feeling will give you the true hope to keep going with passion and purpose.

    Don't forget to prepare and take massive action also. Action conquers fears.

    Have a wonderful day everyone,

    The Law of Attraction is something I only recently grasped and completely agree with what your saying Tony. Another book worth reading on how you can relate this to business as well is 'The Answer' by John Assaraf & Murray Smith, a good read if you want to look further into the topic.

      A great book that usually gets overlooked when discussing LOA is Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz. This book is an absolute must read.

        That's interesting because I read that book, probably over 30 years ago. I was in Amway at the time and they recommended that book, as well as "Think And Grow Rich" and "The Power Of Believing"

        Funny thing is, The Law Of Attraction was something that wasn't even thought about then. There was no name for it. I think the NAMING of this theory has helped put it back on the map.

        Just goes to show you - this is nothing new.

          Yup, I agree! The principle has been around for quite a while I am sure, however the name associated with it over the years has probably changed countless times and will probably be identified as something else 100 years from now.

          Nice thread, I too would agree that belief is much more important than any external circumstances.

          A really good book to assist with this idea is this one:

          The Mind-Made Prison: Mateo Tabatabai, Yasar...The Mind-Made Prison: Mateo Tabatabai, Yasar...

          I have read many self-improvement books over time, and I must say that this one is the best I have ever read.

          The book goes into much detail about the nature of beliefs, why they have such a significant impact on our life, and gives fundamental tactics to becoming someone who can choose their own beliefs.

          It's a short read, definitely worth checking out. It has had a significant impact on my understanding of beliefs, and how to shape them.

    Certain places and people have a successful vibe.

    When I moved back to the UK a couple of months ago I opted to live in an affluent area. I picked up on the success there, which helped me land a really great job, whereas before I had no success at all going for the top jobs.

    Now I'm working in the city, and you can feel the success in the air.

    From "Think and Grow Rich"


    All down the ages, the religionists have admonished struggling humanity to "have faith" in this, that, and the other dogma or creed, but they have failed to tell people HOW to have faith. They have not stated that "faith is a state of mind, and that it may be induced by self-suggestion." In language which any normal human being can understand, we will describe all that is known about the principle through which FAITH may be developed, where it does not already exist.

    Have Faith in yourself; Faith in the Infinite.

    Before we begin, you should be reminded again that: FAITH is the "eternal elixir" which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!

    The foregoing sentence is worth reading a second time, and a third, and a fourth. It is worth reading aloud!

    FAITH is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!

    FAITH is the basis of all "miracles," and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science!

    FAITH is the only known antidote for FAILURE!

    FAITH is the element, the "chemical" which, when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.

    FAITH is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.

    FAITH is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.


    The proof is simple and easily demonstrated. It is wrapped up in the principle of auto-suggestion. Let us center our attention, therefore, upon the subject of self-suggestion, and find out what it is, and what it is capable of achieving.

    It is a well known fact that one comes, finally, to BELIEVE whatever one repeats to one's self, whether the statement be true or false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, he will eventually accept the lie as truth.

    Moreover, he will BELIEVE it to be the truth. Every man is what he is, because of the DOMINATING THOUGHTS which he permits to occupy his mind. Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his own mind, and encourages with sympathy, and with which he mixes any one or more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces, which direct and control his every movement, act, and deed!

    Comes, now, a very significant statement of truth: THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS

    Tone, good for you! Ditto dude

    The LOA just is......we vibe at a certain level, and become matches to ideas, people and circumstances on that level. Now I spend more money to attract more money and to attract more profitable ideas. I also meditate, stretch deeply and take a 2 minute icy cold shower each morning to raise my vibe. So far, so good I've written 1 eBook daily for over 10 weeks in a row and have well over 100 eBooks on Amazon. When you learn to raise your vibe, every day, really fun, freeing things move into your experience and you'll do stuff you never dreamed you'd do.

    Keep on inspiring dude!
