You are the creator of your own reality. For most people, this knowledge is empowering. For others, it can be confusing.
The Law of Attraction Explained – You attract into your life those things that you always think about. It is a law that states that “like attracts like.” Every area of your life is affected by the dominant thoughts and beliefs in your mind both consciously and unconsciously.
So, how exactly can you create everything you experience?
The power that creates worlds and galaxies is the same power that allows you to create your own reality. This is the core teaching of the Law of Attraction. Some people will dismiss the Law as metaphysical pseudo-science.
However, ignorance of how the law works won’t stop it from existing. Gravity and electricity exist and they work whether or not you understand exactly how.
Your first encounter with the Law of Attraction will likely be the movie or the book called “The Secret”. Or maybe someone mentioned the Law of Attraction to you and you got curious. For me, I experienced a dark night of the soul before I relented and studied the Law of Attraction.
Here are 7 reasons why it’s important to understand the Law of Attraction.
Reason 1: If you understand the Law, you will recognize how the Universe fulfills your desires.
Ask and you shall receive.
The Law of Attraction is the power that brings you everything you want. You cannot misuse it because it works perfectly all the time. But you can misunderstand how it works and end up with experiences that you don’t want. Oftentimes, we don’t know our heart’s desires until we are presented with the ones we don’t like.
When faced with challenges, your understanding of the Law of Attraction will keep you firmly focused on your goal. You’ll have the confidence to ask because you understand how the Law delivers. You will trust that what you asked for is already on its way to you.
Reason 2: The Law of Attraction guides you to your life’s purpose.
Follow your bliss.
Notice how you feel when you are doing things you love because this is the Law of Attraction at work. Your life’s purpose is the very thing you love to keep doing every day because it makes you feel good.
As you keep doing things that make you happy, the Law of Attraction will present you with more opportunities to keep doing more of that.
The signs will be very subtle, but if you know how the Law works, you will recognize the signs pointing directly to your life’s purpose.
Reason 3: You will no longer create mindlessly.
We reap what we sow.
If we don’t know how the Law of Attraction works, we will manifest things by default. How often have you heard someone say they don’t want what happened to them and yet the same things keep happening over and over again?
This is because we receive back from the Universe the things that match how we feel. So our feelings of fear manifest in our life as more fear. Fear of debt will show up as more debt.
If you understand the Law of Attraction, you will create with intention and purpose. Feelings of love create more love in return.
You will also see that by stopping a habit or thought pattern, you will create a different outcome. Consider someone who is utterly depressed. After a while, the depression affects his work and his family and takes over his life.
But the moment he decides to stop and redirect his energy into feeling better, he starts the process of lifting himself out of depression. The law works all the time to give you more of what you’re feeling.
Reason 4: You will experience more abundance and joy.
Because the Law of Attraction delivers more of the things you want to have, you will start to attract them into your life. You’ll recognize that scarcity is an illusion. When you feel there is never enough, the Universe will confirm that belief.
Scarcity is not the reason you always lack something. It is the other way around: your feelings of insecurity and scarcity is the energy you give to the Universe. So it is the energy you receive in return.
Reason 5: You will take back your power as a creator.
Does it sometimes feel like things are just happening to you and you have no power to influence outcomes? Does it feel as if life is happening to you instead of you happening to life?
The Law of Attraction reminds us that we cause things to happen. We are not experiencers of effects; we are causers of effects. When you understand the Law of Attraction, you will step into your power as a creator.
You’ll realize you can do something about the problems in your family and the world. You won’t be waiting around for events to happen. You’ll start co-creating them.
Reason 6: You will come to see the challenges in your life for what they truly are.
How do you feel about the difficulties in your life? Do you despair and give up or accept the challenges so you can grow? When you understand the Law of Attraction, you will let go of struggling so much.
Exerting effort only causes more challenges to manifest. Instead, you will focus on the joy of solving problems and overcoming your circumstances.
One of my teachers used to say that life will only give you challenges that you can handle. It is how the Universe will test your ability to thrive in the face of adversity.
If you were in business struggling with financing problems, look to the bright side: this is the Universe checking in to see how you would handle more clients or more employees.
Reason 7: You will have the courage to go after your biggest dreams.
The Universe has your back. You will be given challenges that are a match to your abilities. You will be given opportunities to do what you love. The most successful people I know are the ones who took risks and faced challenges to deliver the most value to others.
The rewards they received in return were multiplied thousand times over. The Universe gives you back the energy and emotion that you send out and amplifies it. With this knowledge, won’t you have the confidence to go after your biggest and wildest ambitions?
Which of the reasons above did you resonate with the most?
Each of us has something that we are working to achieve. We can either achieve our dreams with the support of the Law of Attraction or reject the help of the Universe and do it the harder way.
The choice is yours.
