Why do I believe in the Law of Attraction (LOA)?
Because it works for me!
But what is the LOA?
“The law of attraction is the name given to the term that “like attracts like”
and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts,
one can bring about positive or negative results” wiki
For many years, I had a very ‘woe is me’ attitude. I wasn’t happy in my job, I didn’t have enough money, there were problems with family relationships. I kind of, like many people, grew up wanting more! Always wanting more, never happy with what I had, always focusing on what I didn’t have in my life rather than what I did have!
Because of this reason, I was unhappy, felt trapped and felt my life wasn’t the way I’d planned. It wasn’t all I dreamed, because, as the above says, ‘What you imagine, you become.’ I was creating a miserable life for myself.
I obviously didn’t realise this, as I knew nothing about the LOA, but when I discovered it, everything changed. I mean instantly, like magic overnight. I suddenly understood why bad things kept happening, and trust me they did! From healthy worries, money worries to relationship worries … they just kept getting worse. Until a point in my life, where I gave up. I felt as if nothing more could happen that could make me more unhappy.
It was around this time a friend recommended, ‘The Secret’. To be honest I had heard of it before, but ignored it. Little did I realise it was coming into my life for a reason. Little did I realise if I’d watched it sooner I would have lifted my energy sooner and the bad things wouldn’t have spiralled out of control!
My husband and I watched the DVD and I remember feeling so down, like my life was not going to be solved by a DVD! Little did I realise how much we were both on self-destruct! We watched it a few times, taking in all that the secret had to reveal. It was so powerful! We kept looking at each other and nodding, it totally fitted our life.
Now, don’t get me wrong, we weren’t totally convinced, but what did we have to lose by looking at what we did have? What did we have to lose by looking for the positives in our life? What did we have to lose by seeking out gratitude and love? What did we have to lose by choosing to think about life a bit differently? This was simple: NOTHING! There was nothing to lose by following this very simple rule!
I knew we had to change things, dramatically. We couldn’t keep thinking the way we did, expecting these bad things to happen to us. I couldn’t sleep with worry, I felt sick at the thought of living through the day and our future. Once the secret had entered our life. That’s when I started my collection of inspirational quotes – 1000’s upon 1000’s of them on a spreadsheet. Truly believing in every single one.
I can honestly say, we’ve never looked back. We have successful businesses, we have a happy family life and we don’t dwell on the negative influences that may enter into our life, which isn’t very often. Well, we don’t see bad things as negative, we see them as opportunities, for us to deal with in the best way we can. If it does occur, we look at our level of thinking and within seconds we can turn it around, if we need to. Often it’s the universe telling us that’s not the right track for us.
I swear it’s that simple, once you know how!
You may not be able to work towards your highest energy straight away, and it can take time, however, it truly works. Once you start this way of thinking, you’ll start watching others around you. You’ll notice how people think, their reactions, the way little things keep happening to them, good and bad depending on their attitude to life.
It really is like magic.
One of my favourite laws is showing and feeling love! If you can adapt love into your life, you’ll ease away those negative thoughts like the poison that they are. Feeling love for your life, yourself and others is a great way to ensure you have a happy life.
If you’d like to know more about the LOA, I would definitely recommend, ‘The Secret’ as your starting point. I’ve read many more LOA books, and constantly read any spiritual or positive guides that fall my way, but if you’re wanting to get started on the LOA, this is a great book.
Wishing you all the love in the world when it comes to finding the truth about happiness.
