What if you become the energy that you want to attract in life? The law of attraction has been the subject of numerous books and a critically acclaimed movie. However, it is hardly a new concept.
There are movers and shakers in this world that know how to make things work for them. Imagine calling on the same powers of the universe that iconic great minds have used. The only thing that divides accomplished lives from mediocre ones is the ability to attract positive energy.
Regardless of who you are or your circumstances, this power is available to all. You don’t need a genie in a lamp or a magic spell to create your destiny. The universe has unlimited resources that are at your disposal.
Here are ten ways to make the law of attraction work on your behalf.
1. I Know vs. I Believe
These two words are related but not synonymous. From an early age, your parents or guardians shared their belief system with you as it was related to their culture and faith. You began to believe that certain things are true and false, according to your upbringing.
It is possible to believe something, but not honestly know it. You may think you can climb a mountain, but it doesn’t materialize until you actually climb that mountain. The energy for attraction comes from knowing, not just believing.
Instead of saying, “I believe I am successful” or “I believe that I am a writer,” change the word into, I know. You turn your statements into powerful affirmations when you do it rather than contemplate it. These affirmations connect you to the positive powers of the universe.
2. I Am vs. I Will Be
One of the most potent affirmations in the universe is “I am.” In the Judeo-Christian and Muslim tradition, Moses identified God as the “I AM.” When you identify with the Universal Mind, you bring your affirmations into the present.
Many people who are just learning about the power of attraction put their affirmations in the future tense. “I will be a teacher,” or “One day, I will travel to Africa to help establish new schools.” When you speak an affirmation in the future tense, the universe agrees, and your desires will remain out of reach.
Empower your statements for now, even if they are yet to be. “I AM a teacher.” “I AM traveling to Africa.” As your words resonate with truth, the Universal Mind echoes and make your statement come to pass. Being present in the moment is a vital tool of energy for turning your dreams into reality.
3. Positive Affirmations vs. Negative Affirmations
When you realize how the power of attraction works, you may understand the pitfalls and what is lacking in your life. Have you ever thought you had perpetual bad luck or were cursed? Did you wonder why the things you want you don’t have, yet others seemed to their wants served to them on a silver platter?
The Universal Mind is eternally impartial as to who gets what gifts. When you make negative affirmations like “I will never have the job I want” or “I will never have enough money,” your words carry energy. The universe hears, and you will attract exactly what you have affirmed.
We all have the potential to live abundantly, regardless of our situation in life. As you eliminate negativity in your thought processes, you create positive energy that the universe will match.
4. Create an Affirmation Journal
Journaling is an excellent tool for self-reflection and accountability. How can you attract blessings without knowing what you want? Compare your wants to making a list of the things you need before going to the grocery store.
Buy or craft a journal and personalize it as you like. Use it to write the needs and desires of your heart, and then you must turn your passions into positive affirmations. Feel free to draw, doodle, or paste pictures in your journal to help you visualize your agreement with the universe.
You make the rules for how your journal is written, and you needn’t feel obligated to share it with anyone unless you wish. As the Universal Mind responds to your affirmations, check them off. Let your journal help you to set goals that you will accomplish.
5. Gather with Like Minds
Sacred texts from many religious sects affirm the power of attraction, such as “deep calls unto deep.” Even secular wisdom agrees that “birds of a feather flock together.” As you broaden your understanding of universal attraction, these adages ring true in your spiritual being.
Have you ever felt chipper in the morning and had the misfortune of listening to a co-worker’s negative conversation? Afterward, you probably lost your energy and felt just as miserable. Why did this happen to you? You were drawn into a negative vortex, and the universe matched your affirmation.
As much as possible, choose the company of positive and uplifting people. When you send positive affirmations up with another person, the universal attraction doubles. No wonder religious people often meet in groups to pray, meditate, and “agree” on a matter.
Is there someone in your life whom you admire? Perhaps it’s a person who radiates with a charisma that you can’t explain. No doubt, he or she has discovered the power of attraction and might be an inspiring mentor.
Find books and quality online articles about the law of attraction. Since knowledge is power, it will boost your confidence to agree with the universe. Take what rings true for you and forget what doesn’t.
6. You Must Give Energy to Receive It
Perhaps no principle of attraction has been misinterpreted more than “You must give to receive.” This adage was never meant to be a devious tool of religious charlatans to extort money from gullible followers. Giving and receiving transcends monetary value.
You may know it as karma or the law of sowing and reaping. When you give of yourself to others, the universe echoes your positive actions in kind. People like Mother Teresa and Dr. Martin Luther King understood the value of giving and made a difference in their world.
7. Start Out Small
One of the hardest things for people to grasp is spirituality and your Universal Mind. Having faith and believing in a higher power is not equal to Santa Claus. You may not be flooded with abundant tangible gifts. Rather, your gifts may be more spiritually based than materialistic.
To build your confidence and knowledge of the power of attraction, start with simple affirmations. For example, set your mind on a friend or relative you haven’t talked to in a while. Visualize this person in your mind and see yourself talking to him or her. Don’t be surprised when you get a call out of the blue by this person.
Some books about the subject suggest that you make small affirmations for good parking spots or to get flowers unexpectedly. These affirmations build energy with the universe, and it helps to build a solid foundation for greater fulfillment.
8. Try Meditation
When you pair meditation with visualization, you eventually learn the language of the Universal Mind. It’s the best way to define what you want, and you can turn your visions into positive affirmations. Numerous scientific studies suggest a correlation between mediation and health benefits.
Find a quiet place and close your eyes for a few moments. Use this time to connect with the universe and your higher power. Even if you can just meditate ten to fifteen minutes a day, you will see a difference. Your declarations will become part of you, and you will attract the things you desire.
9. Decide What is True for You
Personal affirmations are just as different as the people who make them. It’s not easy to free yourself from a belief system that no longer serves your greater purpose. To bring your affirmations to life, you must decide what is true for you and discard the rest.
Have you ever noticed how some of your beliefs agree with your spirit, and you soon know them to be true? It’s because the Universal Mind established these truths in the eternal past, and you are one with it. When you are in-tune with the universe, miracles happen.
10. Practice Gratitude Each Day
Nothing opens your life for more abundance than gratitude. A wise person once asked how we would feel if the only things we had today were the things we were grateful for yesterday. Has it been a while since you have sincerely taken the time to count your blessings?
The universe compounds your blessings when positive affirmations are sent up with wings of gratitude. It’s impossible to be positive and ready to receive when you can’t be happy with what you already have in life. Consider using a section of your affirmation journal for listing the things for which you are grateful.
