"We all have those friends that we love to hate. You know the ones I'm talking about - the friends that Lady Luck always seems to shine upon. They can do no wrong, and they have a great career, a great family, and a great life in general. Happiness just seems attracted to them like a magnet.
Have you ever considered that happiness doesn't just seem attracted to these people - that maybe happiness really is attracted to them like a magnet? That's the theory behind the law of attraction. With the right outlook, manifesting happiness is fairly easy!
A History of Karma
The ideas behind the law of attraction aren't new. In fact, ancient Indian scriptures from thousands of years ago talk about using the law of attraction for manifesting luck in life. However, this concept has only recently played a larger role in our everyday lives. Unfortunately, most people don't know about or understand the law of attraction, and because of that, the only things that manifest in their lives are stress and unhappiness.
If you've ever heard the saying "what goes around comes around," then you can understand the concept behind the law of attraction. This is exactly like the concept of karma. However, let us modify that statement to be "what you think comes around." The law of attraction is based on the model that like attracts like - sort of the way two magnets are attracted to one another. Using this idea, you can create the things you want in life simply by thinking about them. Yes, the law of attraction really is that easy!
Real Scientific Roots
This isn't a bag of tricks, either. There are very real scientific roots behind using thought for manifesting the things you want in life. Think about it. Why do magnets attract one another? On a cellular level, the magnets simply connect. Why can't the same be true about our thoughts and feelings? Using the law of attraction, why can't we think about the good things we want in life as a way of helping to connect to them? After all, thoughts are energy. They are real, even if we can't see them. So, why can't we use them like magnets?
Manifesting this energy starts with visualization. The law of attraction starts with understanding what you want. This is so that you have a real sense of imagining what you should visualize. Otherwise, the magnetic strength of your thoughts will be very weak and not that effective. What do you want in life? Most of us know when we are unhappy, but few of us can see the big picture. I'm not just talking about having a bad day. Overall, if your life is unhappy, why? Do you want more money? A better love life? A career that you love? Manifesting these things isn't possible if you don't know where to start. Always begin by taking a full inventory of your life and truly being honest about how you'd like the law of attraction to work for you.
Once you know exactly what you want, it is simply a matter of belief. Ask the universe for what you want. Visualize it to the point where you can reach out and grab it. Then, act as though what you want is already in your life. Manifesting is all about belief. Here are some great tips you can use to make the most out of your visualizations:
Visualize Every Single Day
Visualize every single day. Intense visualization sessions can help the law of attraction bring what you desire to you. Spend time every morning or every night (or both, if you can), thinking about what you want and believing that you will get it.
Visualize the specific. Manifesting works best if you send out thoughts and feelings about exactly what you want. Say, for example, that you want to find the man or woman of your dreams. Think about what he or she will look like. Think about the characteristics he or she will have. Visualize specific details of what you'd do together and how you'd fall in love.
Be open to the law of attraction. Visualization isn't enough for manifesting your dreams. You have to believe that what you want will come to you. Be open to receiving it, even if it comes to you in unconventional ways. Always be on the look out for the things you're visualizing.
Send out strong signals. If you don't really want something, your signals will be weak. In other words, you'll have a weak magnet, like the worn out magnets that always fall off of the refrigerator. You have to want your goal with all of your soul.
Never Give Up
Manifesting the thing you want could take weeks, months, or even years! It depends on the rest of the universe. The magnets of the law of attraction are pulling everything in all directions. However, over time, sending out the same signals will help you overcome all other pulls so that what you really want comes to you.
Remember, the law of attraction is not something you can half-hope will work. To really make use of this tool, you have to believe with full force that the things you want in life will come to you. The law of attraction can truly help you become that person everyone envies - the one will all of the luck! "
