In the simplest terms, you can think of Law of Attraction (LOA) as “like attracts like”. So if we are primarily thinking positive thoughts, we will attract more positive experiences into our lives. Author Michael Losier in his book, Law of Attraction, defines it this way, “I attract to my life whatever I give my attention, energy and focus to, whether positive or negative.”
You are probably thinking that definition sounds pretty good. If I give something my attention, energy and focus, I can attract more of it. Yes, but we also need to pay attention to the end of that definition, “whether positive or negative”.
Just imagine the thoughts that you are thinking daily. Are most of your thoughts positive or are you primarily focused on what’s not right in your world? If you’re going through a health challenge, a financial crunch, or having difficulty in your relationships, it’s easy to only see what the problems are.
If you want your life to improve, it’s important to focus on the improvement and not wallow in the problem. Put another way, you’re not going to get wealthier by focusing on how poor you are.
You may be thinking, “Hey it’s tough to be positive when things aren’t going well!” I understand that! I’m a breast cancer survivor. When I was going through treatment, my physical body did not always feel great. But I knew that I must change the way I was feeling emotionally, I had to change my emotional vibration (vibe). I understand that if I’m primarily sending a negative vibe, that negativity will be reflected back to me in my life experience.
In another post, I will give you tips on how raise your vibration from negative to positive. For now I want you to pay attention and notice the thoughts that you are automatically thinking. Are you primarily spending your days in a negative or positive state of mind?
