The Law of Attraction, What is it?
The Law of Attraction is a powerful universal law that affects everything in your life and the lives of those around you. It is similar to gravity, it is always there, it is working in your life right now. You probably have heard the Law of Attraction stated in many different ways:
“Like attracts Like”
“Thoughts held in mind produce those in kind”
“Cause and effect”, “What you focus on you attract”
“Whatever you think about either positive or negative, you attract”
“Birds of a feather, flock together”.
In the popular book “The Law of Attraction” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Law of Attraction is defined as:
“That which is like unto itself, is drawn”
How does it work?
The Law of Attraction responds to the thoughts and feelings that you hold at all times. They may be thoughts about the past, observations of something in your present or day dreaming or thinking about something in your future. You could be complaining about what you don’t have or what you don’t want. The thoughts that you are focused in the PRESENT are creating a vibration in you and the Law of Attraction is responding to it.
Now remember, you may not be doing this deliberately or consciously, but only you have the power to attract what comes into your life. If you are focusing on something, whether positively or negatively, you are attracting it, even if by default.
Here’s an example. If I ask you not to think about the color of your car, what happens? You think about the color of your car. The universe works in the same way. When you declare:
“I don’t want any more illness”
“I don’t want to be tired”
“I don’t want to be so fat”
“I don’t want to meet any more jerks”
The universe responds to and provides more:
- More Jerks
Now, for the science behind it. Everything that exists vibrates at some subatomic level and your thoughts and feelings have a vibratory frequency.
The barometer for your vibrations is your emotions and feelings. Whenever you feel and have emotion about something, you create a vibration for it and that vibrational frequency- like a radio transmitter, draws to you those things that vibrate at the same frequency.
If you give your attention to the negative things in your life and focus on what you don’t have, instead of what you want by talking about it and complaining about it, then you feel the feelings of frustration, overwhelm, worry and fear, sadness. You are now vibrating at the level of those feelings and you will attract things that are a match to that vibration….those things that make you feel more frustration, overwhelm, worry, fear, sadness.
The more you are a match to that frequency, the stronger the vibration that you are transmitting and the more you attract at that frequency.
The Bottom line…. you get what you think about and what you feel, whether you want it or not.
How do I use the Law of Attraction to Create my Holiday Season?
Here’s a tool that will assist you in shifting your vibration and attracting what you want for your holiday season and in your life.
Creating Clarity Tool
This tool helps you to get clear on what you desire and begin to focus on it, thereby using the Law of Attraction to attract it to you. Complete this tool for your Ideal Holiday or Christmas Season, or for any of the individual activities, interactions, parties, spending, etc. related to the season.
- You’ll need a blank piece of paper. Draw a line across the top of the paper about an inch from the top. From the center of this line, draw a line down the middle to create a large “T”.
- At the top write: My Ideal _____ (i.e. My Ideal Christmas, Holiday, Event)
- Label the left column “Don’t Want” and the right column “Do Want”
SO WHAT DO I WANT?
- In the column on the left, make a list of the things that you don’t like or want to experience this holiday.
- Now, read through the list and in the column on the right list the opposite of what you don’t want, listing it in a positive way, stating what you do want- including how you want to feel.
Note: You can create a separate clarity list for any of the individual activities, interactions, parties, spending, etc. related to the season.
- Read this list daily.
