The concept of the Law of Attraction is fundamentally an ancient idea encapsulated in universal laws. It is about matching energetic frequencies to attract the things we desire – asserting that life is our own creation. We hold the ability through our consciousness to influence and construct our life events. The Law of Attraction is based on the idea that like attracts like, and dislike attracts dislike (Singh, 2020). Whatever it is you focus your attention on, whether it is good or bad, positive or negative, will evolve because you give it the power to simply by thinking about it.
There has been a new era of scientific research into the connections of the brain, body, mind and consciousness that ground the magical science behind the law of attraction. As interest has grown in learning how to attract abundance and generate a desirable life, there has been more insight into understanding the belief that the universe creates and provides for you that which your thoughts are focused on (Thomas, 2011). Just like everything else in the universe, each atom that makes up our physical bodies is vibrating at a specific frequency. The same energy that exists in the universe exists within us as well, therefore making energy the basis of all physical reality (Tsantalis, 2019). There has been research conducted giving insight into the phenomenon of powerful thoughts becoming things. A study showed that people were more likely to become sick when thinking negative thoughts, including worry and fear, and were more likely to remain healthy when thinking positively (Porr, 2016). Using the mind as a powerful healing tool is also demonstrated by the placebo effect, whereby the brain and body create a strong connection by truly believing a treatment or procedure will work (Publishing, 2017). By repeatedly thinking that you have the power to achieve something, you attract that possibility to you.
Our conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings control our destiny, whether we are aware of it or not. As human beings, we hold the power to manifest into reality any possible future that we wish to attract (Tsantalis, 2019). Many believe that the Law of Attraction works simply by thinking positive thoughts and desires – but you actually have to believe in what it is you want. Manifestation can be done through aspiring towards desires and goals, and knowing what it is you want to achieve. These aspirations must be given the right amount of attention for ideas to flourish into energy. Manifesting your dreams into reality takes great focus, and the ability to take action in doing something everyday to visualize workinng towards your goals (Porr, 2016). Understand that what you desire on some vibrational and energetic level already exists. You have to open your mind to the infinite and limitless potential of the universe. The power lies within our own minds and within the universal mind in all its potentiality.
