You might laugh, but I wasn’t aware of the Law of Attraction for a very long time, and I truly mean a very very long time.
Even after I’d watched the movie, The Secret, and I’d heard Oprah speak about it a zillion times…
I still didn’t think of myself as the creator of my world!!!
I thought that it was probably working for the people in the movie, or for some other ‘different’ people in the world, but surely, it wasn’t working for me, I wasn’t creating my life.
You’re asking why? Well, because this is such a big deal, the Law of Attraction!
How could I have such enormous powers of attracting whatever I wanted and still not be aware of it for so long?
If I was creating, then why was I not living a dream life, with a dream career, lots of money, and the most loving friends and family?
And somehow, very strangely, I was also wondering why I must believe in the Law of Attraction if I’d not believed in it thus far?
I’m serious. I’m not making this up. That’s literally what my thought pattern was.
I wasn’t believing in the Law of Attraction worked for me because somewhere deep inside I was afraid to recognize that I was powerful beyond my wildest dreams. I was afraid to recognize that I created all my experiences through my thoughts and that I was creating all the time.
Now if think of it this way, the Law of Attraction is a tremendous superpower, isn’t it? And such a huge responsibility too. So I can understand why I felt overwhelmed and very skeptical. However, I really wasn’t doing myself any favors by not believing in the universal Law of Attraction.
Because the level of my belief didn’t matter…
The Law of Attraction is working everywhere all the time, whether I believe it or not, whether I am conscious of it or not, whether I like it or not.
It’s obviously better to understand it and use it towards our advantage.
So now that you know my story, maybe you won’t be like me. Perhaps you’ll be quicker in conquering your fears, and in truly believing in your superpower.
What is the Law of Attraction?
If you’re reading this, chances are that you already have some understanding of the Law of Attraction.
In the simplest terms, it means that we create our own reality. It means that all our experiences come around via our thoughts, through whatever we focus our attention upon.
Does the Law of Attraction Work?
The Law of Attraction seems so pseudoscience that you might be wondering if there is any basis to it. You’re not alone. I have been a non-believer for so long that my scientific mind had to figure out a logical explanation. So here’s my viewpoint on it.
1) We are all in a constant state of vibration.
Let’s start with the understanding that all of us, big or small, are in a constant state of vibration. All the stars and planets in outer space, the trees and oceans, birds and animals, our houses and cars and any other stuff, the tiniest particles, even our thoughts, and feelings, are all in a constant state of vibration.
If our brain were to transmit all of this constant motion state to us, it would become really complicated. So when translating ‘reality’ to us, the information is simplified. We believe that the chair we’re sitting on is solid and still. In truth, the chair has millions of subatomic particles vibrating, running and popping around with energy.
There is a vibrational nature of everything around us. If you quiet your mind and meditate, you can feel energy running inside you and around you.
It’s a scientific fact that we are all vibrating at some frequency all the time, our thoughts and feelings are vibrating at some frequency too.
2) Like attracts like vibrations.
So now that we’ve established that every object, every thought, every feeling has a particular frequency at which it is vibrating, let’s move on to the next bit.
Vibrations of a similar frequency are drawn together. A droplet will easily merge with another droplet of water because they are both at the same frequency. But water won’t mix with oil because they don’t have the same vibrational match.
High-frequency objects/thoughts attract other high-frequency objects/thoughts, and likewise for low-frequency objects/thoughts.
High-frequency feelings will attract more of such high-frequency experiences.
Low frequency feelings will attract more of such low frequency experiences.
3) Stay in a state of high vibration to attract high-frequency experiences.
Let’s do a quick recap of the first two points.
- We are all in a constant state of vibration.
- Vibrations of similar frequency are drawn together.
So basically, by the frequency of our vibration, we are attracting other experiences of similar frequency. And that is the Law of Attraction.
We all have the ability to change our vibration. So we can most certainly change the conditions of our lives by changing ourselves.
How To Apply The Law of Attraction?
Now that we understand this universal powerful law, we can definitely use it to create the life of our dreams. The basic premise of the Law of Attraction is that like energy attracts like energy. You should stay in high spirits to attract more and more of life’s goodness your way.
1) It’s your mind that creates your reality.
You would have noticed that your friends who have good luck are usually in a positive state of mind. They think of the glass as half full instead of half empty. They are always sending out positive vibes so they are always attracting positive experiences into their life.
Stay conscious of the thoughts that you think and your beliefs. Your thoughts create your reality.
2) Adjust your vibration to change your reality.
You might not attract what you crave. You might not attract what you need. You might not attract what you truly deserve…
You attract that which you are in vibrational harmony with.
Often, we try to solve our issues by trying to manipulate our outside world. We see the problems outside ourselves and try to correct the problems in people around us.
However, once we begin to understand the Law of Attraction, we’ll begin to see that we attract our conditions. Stop playing the blame game.
I love this story by Dr. Wayne Dyer.
A woman goes to see a psychologist. She blames her mum for all of her habits and life issues. Every time the psychologist asked the woman to change something in herself, she would go refer back to how her mum was the source of all her problems.
Finally, after three visits, the psychologist says that she should get her mum to see him because clearly, fixing her mum would fix her problems!
No amount of physical manipulation will create the world that you wish to see unless you change on the inside and raise your vibration.
3) You Do Not Have to Figure it All Out.
Once you become more adept at staying in a higher vibration, and by that I mean that you stay happy, loving and open, just the way you were born, you’ll see that your life will start flowing easily as if on auto-pilot. Some magical hand will be aligning you to the right places and the right people at just the right time.
And that’s simply the Law of Attraction working for you.
All places, people and ideas have their own vibe. When you stay high-vibe, your energy will take you to your matching high-vibe places, people and ideas automatically.
Your whole life journey will evolve and you’ll find that all things you desire – career, love, money – will be bigger and better than your state of being. How wonderful!

I don’t know that this is true. What makes it a law?
What I think of more, happens in my life, all the time.
So if I think that I’m happy in a job, I continue enjoying it. If I think I’m getting sick and tired with something, I get sick and tired. If I see the good in a relationship, I enjoy it more and more, and if I start noticing what’s wrong, I only find more wrong things. Makes sense?
LOA is working for us all the time, whether we like it or not, pay attention to it or not.
You attract what you are. In order to change your reality you have to live it…you have to be what you want to attract.
yes , with vibration , believes and intentions we create ! Every now moment
I think LoA is just about priming yourself to be susceptible to confirmation bias. The mechanisms behind it (“vibrations” in this writers case) seem to be totally made up nonsense, and the techniques or practices behind LoA, like constant affirmations, are just ways to trick yourself into ignoring the “misses” and making the “hits” seem extra significant.
Thanks for your comment. Yes, affirmations sound like we’re cheating the brain but that’s how we program our subconscious and create a life we want.
Ever had something terrible happen and had a friend say, don’t worry it’ll all turn out well? That’s a lie too, isn’t it if you think of it literally.
But it’s holding a candle, giving hope and making life beautiful. It’s creating a better life and I’d heartily welcome heaps of such lying but supporting friends because they make the impossible possible
I feel it is a real thing to an extent but there is only one way to truly master it which many people will hardly be able to do at this time… to become a true master. However I would like to share an experience:
I have witnessed this occur 2-3 times in absolute astounding fashion by only 1 individual I know. I would go to his house sometimes to hang out, he had sort of a bar set up in his garage. Sometimes many different friends and we would converse.
I’m hardly a drinker but I enjoy this person’s company because his conversations are unlike what you will ever hear. Anyhow he really liked to drink and smoke a little Mary Jane and was very tuned up during this moment. These very few times he would get an idea in his head for what he would like to get but it was never for himself it was for someone dear… one time it was for my children….
He would go on and on talking about it you could visually see in his entire essence that he was truly in a euphoric state of wishful head dreaming of this thing that he wanted to gain somehow and find so badly but you could also see the true intention was his love for who he wanted to give to cause it would make them so happy. That’s about the best I can really explain it with words.. it was a pretty telling expression.
Anyhow the very next day I would be back by in the morning at the time I didn’t live to far away. That one morning neighbors were having a garage sale maybe 4 houses down… we always like to go see. There is the item described as he had, now this isn’t something you can just go out and buy… and there are several different kinds… it’s not something many people have. They had it for sale for much cheaper than it was new and it was EXACTLY as HE had described it. It was unmistakable, it was beyond coincidence we both knew it and I was dumbfounded but he seemed to become humbled deeply as if he was overcome with a gratefulness like none other.
I tell you there a few moments where I have felt I was in the presence of an atmospheric majesty that happens once in several lifetimes of a moment. It was like the whole universe came forth to lay at his feet what it was HE asked for and show us both or at least myself that it was here to serve HIM for THAT moment for THAT thing. Never was there a shred of doubt or sign of selfish intention to be proud, he talked not of what happened it was obvious he didn’t want it to be known.. a few times in a dazed excitement I would tell him “Hey this is beyond amazing what has just happened?” He remained silent and just give me looks with a slight smile that said in itself: we were not to boast or testify of this powerful thing to bring any greatness to ourselves in any way cause it was for us alone to witness and some weird way it was not His to claim. He was right too you could just feel it and it was given immediately to those children of mine.
I know it’s real there is nothing like that. To witness it in the magnitude i did that day is unforgettable and an experience one feels as if they should bow down in utter reverence to whatever force was really present for that true selfless loving intention.
Wow, beautiful story! Thanks very much for sharing.
This is a good primer on the law of attraction! You got the basics down pretty well- thought and emotion determine vibration which then causes events in our lives to mirror that vibration.
Changing your thoughts and emotions will change your vibration, very true!
You Also got down that one needs to take personal responsibility for themselves, their behaviour, and their inner state. Very true! Just doing that alone will vastly improve most people’s lives!
However, there is an aspect to this equation you may not be aware of yet: Humans need darkness and negativity, low vibrations, just as much as they need positive ones. You point out that we are naturally born loving and happy and high vibration- that is not true at all, as anyone who’s ever been around a baby for more than 48 hours straight knows.
Babies are not in a high vibration all the time! They cry, they feel negativity, hunger, lonliness, lack, etc. So right off the bat, babies disprove that notion that we are inherently high vibration.
The biggest difference between a baby and an adult is not how high or low your vibration is, but how easily you shift between them. A baby can go from very low to very high in a very short amount of time, but as adults we have the ability to get our ourselves stuck in vibrational patterns.
Also, the negative vibrations do serve important purposes. Negativity is change, and darkness is surprisingly healing and supportive.
What causes problems is when we try to pretend we are only one, light or dark, and deny that we are all. Then they go into your shadow self (here the discussion gets psychological, because the law of attraction has very much to do with psychology! It is the mind that enables us to manipulate ourselves to get different results from the law of attraction.) and they continue to manifest things you don’t think you want because you are in denial that you actually do want it.
Balance is crucial.
Also, it is not correct that physical action is meaningless, as is mental action (figuring things out). The physical is vibration too. The things you physically do and surround yourself with play a great role in determining what you will attract. You can very effectively leverage the law of attraction by changing how your room is decorated, which will also change your psychological state!
And nothing physical can change without physical action- proper application of the law of attraction simply makes the process vastly more efficient.
Figuring things out is still Nessecary, as well., you won’t be a tattoo artist or computer programmer if you don’t know how!
these are all things that need to be factored in.
Remember too, low vibration isn’t worse than high vibration. High vibration can cause problems and harm done too long. So can low vibration. The problem is that people get stuck in a rut, often an imbalanced place, rather than changing, evolving, and growing.
It may well be said that teaching we need to stay high vibration is the opposite of spirituality, because spirituality encompasses everything, high as well as low. The shitty stuff is every bit as spiritual as the wonderful. You cannot enjoy one without the other!
“whether we taste the high-grade sake of ‘triumph’ or the bitterness of ‘defeat’, they’re just two parts of the same thing: the thread of fate I wish to manipulate.” -Golden Time Lover, FMA Brotherhood.
That is the attitude you must take to truly master the law of attraction.
You must also realize that a lot of the time you sit in the same place because you are -already- happy with that place. You want the same stuff you’ve already got! If you want to change, you need to really change who you are as a person instead of expecting it to happen magickally, and that is hard work! You have to get deep down in the muck of your life and inner self, you must face your inner demons if you want to rock!
Because while you can very easily and rapidly change, you have reasons you dont use this power, ones you are often unconscious of. So you need to become aware of those and determine if you truly wish to change those things!
Thank you heaps for such a detailed reply. Love the discussion here.
Agree to your thoughts on negativity. Yin and yang are both present all the time, there is no light without darkness. Love how you illustrate that it is our attitude towards negativity that has to change. Agree with that. This is the only way in which we can let negativity wind down. After all, whatever we resist, persists.
And of course, the spirit of action. I’m not saying we should all sit down and do nothing, simply saying that we should take inspired action. When you stay high-vibe, your energy will take you to your matching high-vibe places, people and ideas automatically.
It’s got some truth but there are limits and it’s not the highest truth.
For example it does not have an adequate use for suffering and tries to eliminate suffering which is futile on this earth.
You also can’t get someone to love you against their will.
Great point! I wonder about getting my way with other people too, atleast a couple of times in the past.
But that’s controlling someone else so that there desire matches what I want. So in this case, their emotions and thoughts come into play as well as mine because loa works for all of us. And hence loa might seem to have limits.
So rather than having this resistance with wanting something specific, I’ve started asking for relationships etc where I’m only describing the traits of the person I want or aspects of the relationship, but not limiting to someone specific, and I have been very very surprised. The universe has delivered bang on.
Is it the LOA if I consciously surround myself with weak minded people, so that I can control them to be in alignment with getting what I desire?
Your thoughts would be about controlling them, so in affect you’re thinking of control. So that is what you are bound to attract too.
Best strategy is to focus on what makes you truly happy and peaceful
