These three steps are the foundation for the Law of
Attraction. Whether we realize it or not, the Law is
always working. Positive attracting positive and
negative attracting negative. Therefore skipping
steps, may cause results that differ greatly from what
you intended. Know what you desire and ask for it
Knowing what you want isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Aside from the basic physical needs, your mind is
filled with wants, desires and fears. Conscious and
You need to know why you want the things you want.
Maybe what you really want, isn’t what youre asking
for at all. The conscious thoughts produce the same
amount of energy as the unconscious ones. And if
they’re contrary to one another, you’re defeating
Believe that what you desire is already yours
Visualizing you having already achieved your desire is
an important step. It’s the « positive thinking » step.
Focusing on having it will create positive energy. The
completion of your desire is a result of this positive
This step is the one where so many people lose it.
It’s the completion of your desire. Allow yourself to
acknowledge your right to have your wishes fulfilled.
For many accepting this is the hardest part. If you
consciously or unconsciously feel you don’t deserve
what you’re asking for, you won’t get it. If you don’t
believe you’re worthy of having your desires come
true, they never will.
For many, « The Secret » hasn’t been a secret for
centuries. It’s been going by different names. Every
other generation feels the need to rename it. To make
it their’s. But changing the name doesn’t change the
The concept of « positive thinking » was the last topic
and the « Law of Attraction » is the newest. But the
focus is still the same. What you think will happen,
will happen. Your thoughts will manifest themselves
into your reality. The words change, but not the
Focusing on negative things will cause these negative
things to become reality. If your life and mind are
filled with anger, hate and dissatisfaction, you will
find yourself surrounded by those very same things.
Learning to focus your thoughts on positive things,
love, happiness and contentment will have the desired
results and your life will be filled with these
Just wishing for the good things in life will not make
them magically appear right before your eyes. It’s a
learning process in which you teach yourself to change
the way you think.
The average human mind tends to focus on the negative.
Worrying about fears, whether real or imagined,
consumes much of our thought process. It’s part of our
survival instinct. Often this takes place on an
unconscious level, and we don’t even notice these
The Law of Attraction is the way to change your
thinking process. Regardless of it’s name, the result
is the same: Improving your daily life through your
The Law of Attraction basically says we can get what
we think about. Our circumstances arent determined by
the fickle hand of fate, but instead are shaped by our
own conscious and unconscious thoughts.
To make the Law of Attraction work for you, you have
to know what you want and ask for it. Then, go ahead
and start making plans for after you receive it.
This doesnt mean ask for money, and then start
spending like its in your pocket. But make plans for
how youre going to spend the money when it does get
The hardest part for most people is to be open to
receiving it. This is where doubting you really
deserve it can prevent anything good from happening.
If you dont think you deserve good things, they wont
come to you.
Another problem some people have is thinking about the
things they dont want to happen to them. The thought
fulfilling universe doesnt understand the concept of
« I dont want ». If you spend your time dwelling on
negative things, thats what youre going to get.
The Law of attraction isnt going to solve all your
problems overnight. But if you start practicing it on
a conscious level, eventually it will become second
nature to you.
You wont have to steer your mind to thoughts of
positive things. It will already be there. Positive
thoughts breed positive actions and reactions. Give it
an honest try and you may be pleasantly surprised.
Its a scientifically proven fact that mankind uses
only about 6% of our brains. Albert Einstein
supposedly used 10% of his. That leaves an awful lot
of untapped brain power.
Consider what weve accomplished with the little bit
of brain power weve been using since the dawn of man.
Is it so hard then to consider the possibilities of
what we could achieve?
The Law of Attraction, positive thinking or whatever
you want to call it, works on the premise that were
capable of determining what we have and how we live
with the power of our psychic energy.
The idea is that were able to direct our mental
abilities, our thoughts toward our goals and desires
and obtain them.
Granted this ability isnt something thats easily
obtained. Most people have spent their lives under the
impression that the world affects them. Not the other
Its a generally held belief that if fate is
determined by us, its through our actions and not our
thoughts. But arent our thoughts the basis of our
If our thoughts cause us to act, and that action
results in obtaining our goal, can we not say our
thoughts were responsible for the results? The results
of our actions are determined by our thoughts. Whether
theyre conscious or not, our thoughts do determine
what and who we are.
The Law of Attraction helps us focus our thoughts in
positive ways to everyones benefit.
When mankind started realizing there was more to life
than just surviving, philosophy was born.
Philosophical and religious ideas began forming. About
this time, the idea that we could control our lives
with the power of our thoughts started taking hold.
And this idea has never lost its appeal or its
We are what we think. Its a concept almost as old as
time itself. From Hinduism, Buddhism, ancient Greek
philosophers to modern day religions, this same belief
has been taught.
The name of this idea has changed over the centuries.
It seems like every other generation feels the need to
change it. They feel like its necessary to make the
idea something new and original in an attempt to
attract new believers.
In the last two centuries the prevailing terms have
been « positive thinking » and the « Law of Attraction ».
Both terms have had their popularity.
The Law of Attraction was brought back into popularity
with the 2006 film The Secret. Christianity has
maintained the same term for it throughout its
lifetime. Christianity teaches it as the « power of
Regardless of the name, the basic concept is the same.
You ask for something, truly believe (have faith) you
will get it. And last but not least is belief that you
deserve to have it.
Whatever you call it, teaching yourself to have
positive thoughts and believing youre deserving of
good things can only result in positive gains in your
Asking and wishing for what you want doesn’t always
mean you get it. We all learn that lesson as children.
Learning how to ask is a lesson many people never
properly learn. Knowing how to ask for what you want
can mean the difference between getting it and just
continuing to want it.
Even more important than knowing how to ask, is
knowing what you’re asking for. Understanding what you
want and the reasons you want it can give you valuable
insight to the thought process that is necessary to
achieving your desires.
Asking for riches without know what you want those
riches for may not bring you the happiness and
satisfaction you anticipated. Realizing why you want
money can help you understand what your real desire
Do you want it to provide security for your family, or
because you really want the power money buys. The
goals here are different. And while obtaining one,
doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t get the other, it
also doesn’t mean you will either.
Asking for another job is good example. Why do you
want another job? Is it a second job you want? Or one
that pays more? Or are you really wanting a job that
you can enjoy doing? Not knowing why you want another
job, can lead to dissatisfaction when you get what you
So the first step is learning yourself. Knowing what
you really want and why you want it.
One of the more interesting aspects of the Law of
Attraction is found in it’s teachings. Fundamentally,
it teaches people how to think. Not what to think.
Learning how to think, helps focus the mind. Many
people discover that focusing the mind, helps improve
The book and DVD, The Secret, is a good introduction
to the Law of Attraction, but that’s all it is. It
focuses on acquiring material possessions. And there’s
nothing wrong with that.
It’s not wrong to be well fed, well clothed, drive a
nice car and live in a nice home. If you create a
feeling of self that’s capable and worthy, you’ll
attract what you want. You can take care of yourself
as well as others.
The main points of the Law of Attraction is finding
happiness in your daily life. Making the world a
better place for everyone. Finding self-fulfillment
through the power of the mind.
There are many people that see the Law of Attraction
as a deeply religious experience. Connecting them to
others and to a higher power.
The numbers are just as large that consider the Law of
Attraction spiritual but not religious. Religious or
just spiritual, the results are the same: Improving
life for yourself and others through the power of
Even if you consider the Law of Attraction as neither
religious nor spiritual, the benefits are the same.
You’re still using thought energy to get the things
you want most out of life.
Because our thought process is constantly working, the
Law of Attraction is constantly working as well. Many
of our thoughts are at the unconscious level, so we’re
not always aware of what type of energy those thoughts
may be creating.
According to the Law of Attraction, if you want
something enough and you truly believe it’s possible
for you to have it, you’ll probably get it. But the
same is true for negative thoughts.
If you spend a lot of time thinking on the things you
don’t want or fear, and you believe it’s possible for
you to experience them, it’s just as likely they’ll
come your way. You can’t avoid unpleasant things by
hoping they don’t happen.
Your unconscious is literal and produces negative
energy the same as it does positive energy. It doesn’t
know the difference. Your unconscious mind doesn’t
understand « I don’t want ». To truly achieve the
positive benefits of the Law of Attraction, you have
to become aware of what you’re focusing your attention
Are you focusing on what you want? Or don’t want? Do
you have thoughts or beliefs that are contrary to what
you want? If you truly want something, but feel you
don’t really deserve it, those thoughts will be
translated into energy, and the Universe will « feel »
that you don’t deserve it.
Becoming aware of what you’re spending your energy on,
enables you to change it. Allowing you to focus all
your thoughts on the things you really want.
If you want something, all you have to do is ask for
it. Sweeter words have never been spoken. It would be
like a dream come true. But that doesn’t mean it can’t
be true. Good things really can be yours just from
asking for them.
When you know how to ask. That’s the key. Knowing how
to ask, and knowing what to ask for. You can ask for
anything you want. But asking for a new car when you
really want a Porsche, doesn’t mean you’ll be
satisfied with just « a new car ». And just saying « I
want a Porsche » and then going on about your life as
usual probably won’t get it for you.
Focusing your thoughts on getting that new Porsche,
picturing yourself driving it, truly believing you
deserve it, and allowing it to come to you is the way
to get it.
Just asking is only the first step in the Law of
Attraction. Feeling and acting as if you’ve received
it is the second, knowing you deserve it and allowing
it to come to you is the third.
Having doubts about your worthiness produces negative
energy. Negative energy produces negative results. If
you don’t think you deserve a new Porsche, you won’t
get it. If you don’t think the Law of Attraction
works, it won’t work for you.
Positive energy is the only way to get positive
results. And positive energy is only produced by
The way to get what you want through the Law of
Attraction is learning to control your thought
process. Negative thoughts produce as much energy as
Thinking about your fears and saying « I don’t want
that » is probably going to result in your fears being
realized. Cosmic energy is literal. It doesn’t
understand « I don’t want ».
It produces results based on energy. So if you’re
producing more negative energy than positive, your
results are going to be negative.
Training your mind to concentrate on the positive
instead of the negative is a necessary, but often
difficult process. People are worriers.
It’s a survival thing designed to help us remember and
avoid the dangers of life. But being aware of our
fears and letting them control our thoughts are two
different things. Turning the negative fears into
positive thoughts is the key.
Your thoughts are yours. They can be your faithful
servants or your masters. Which ever you allow them to
be. You have the control, you make your choice. You
determine which course your thoughts take.
Learning to control your thoughts can be done by
learning to control your will. By mastering yourself.
Phrases like « I am master of my self » can lead you in
the right direction.
Repeating these or similar words, and believing them,
will make them real. When confronted with fears and
doubts, remembering to « master » your thoughts keeps
the positive energy flowing. Leaving no room for the
negative energy to manifest..
