Imagine being able to attract the right people to yourself to accomplish everything that you set out to do. With these 5 things, you will have everything you need to know about attracting the right people to you.

5 Things You Need To Know To Attract The Right People

1. Be clear about who you are and what you want

Researchers in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology studied the Law of Attraction and found that it applied to even 4th graders. They had students in grades 4-12 fill out surveys about their attitudes and preferences. Then the students looked at the surveys of other students, without knowing whose survey they were looking at. Children ranked the surveys most similar to their own as being the most attractive people.

Knowing yourself helps you to be able to attract the right people. For example, if you know that you are easily frustrated, you might know that you would get along best with a patient person, or someone who knows what it’s like to be easily frustrated. Know your strengths and weaknesses and look for people who can help you be the best person you can be.

2. Ask for what you want

Notice that the title of this step does not tell you to ask for who you want, but what you want. Know what you are looking for in the person you want to attract and ask for it. Saying it aloud is not necessary as long as you say it in your heart.

When we are talking about attracting the right people to you, you need to let go of the need to control who shows up. You can definitely ask for certain traits in the person you are trying to attract, for example, a good sense of humor for a romantic partner. But you cannot attract a specific person without asking for it.

The reason that you cannot control who is attracted to you is that you cannot control the free will of another person. Trying to control someone is against the Law of Attraction and will not bring you what you want. Instead, ask for the right person to come to you who has whatever quality or skill that you want or need to accomplish your goals.

3. Be mindful and focus on positive emotions

When you are working to attract the right people to you, you need to be aware of what is being sent to you. You should eliminate distractions like your cell phone, for example. The person you are trying to attract may be put in your path, but if you aren’t able to see or hear them, you might miss out.

Esther and Jerry Hicks, authors of The Law of Attraction, wrote about their experience talking with a non-physical being who began speaking through Esther. The being introduced himself as Abraham and Esther works with him as her spirit guide.

Abraham, speaking through Esther Hicks says of the Law of Attraction that ‘Your words will not bring you immediate manifestation of what you are asking for, but the more often you say them, and the better you feel while you are saying them, the purer or less contradicted your vibration will be. And soon your world will be full of these things you have spoken about.’

Abraham, the spirit guide, goes on to say through Esther that feeling the emotion that you want to attract is even better way to attract the right people, rather than focusing on the right words.

4. Expect the unexpected

‘Really? Is this a joke?’ Positive people who know how to attract the right people to themselves often find that they have to be on their toes. When they ask for who they want to appear, the Universe often shows that it has a sense of humor.

When you are using the Law of Attraction to attract the right people to you, often the Divine responds by sending you literally what you asked for, or a joke. For example, if you were unclear, but asked for a blonde, expect a bartender to place a light blonde ale in front of you by accident. Try being more clear about what you are looking for.

5. Be open to receiving

When you know these 5 things to attract the right people, you have to be open to receiving whomever the Divine and the Universe sends to you. If a child shows up or an 83-year old, you need to be ready to accept that this person will bring you whatever it is that you have asked for.

You may receive a person who was perfect for what you need, but maybe the person does not look how you hoped they would. Instead of rejecting what the Universe sends you, embrace this person and learn what you can from them. Perhaps they will work out perfectly after all.
