What is wrong with the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction: What it is and How it works
This month is Parkinson's Awareness Month #ParkinsonsAwareness
In my previous blog, I wrote about how to create and channel positive energy. Positive energy is one of the most important factors in leading a fulfilling and happy life. People are too often occupied with negative energies and negative thoughts, making it difficult to engage life with a positive attitude. If you haven’t read it, click here to find what you need to know about this interesting topic, as well as tips on how to bring more positive energy, strength, and calm into your life.
In today’s blog I want to talk to you about a different energy. Are you aware that you yourself energetically attracted everything that has happened in your life so far? With the awareness that you are the energy you attract by how you feel inside. Your inside creates your outside. I'll explain what's behind the law - and why it may not have brought you the success you want.
Check out my Podcasts. Thank you for listening!
For the nonce, more and more people are coming across the so-called law of attraction. But unfortunately, there is also countless, sometimes contradictory information. Actually, I don't want to use the term "law of attraction". For many people it sounds like something esoteric and daydreaming. This is probably because there is far too much wacky and sometimes contradictory information about it.
Nevertheless, in the headline for this blog I speak of the law of attraction because many people only come into contact with the meaning that thoughts also create reality through this concept.
What does the Law of Attraction mean?
There are two relevant things that science has proven regarding the Law of Attraction. First: There is no solid matter, everything consists of energy. Second: If we are honestly convinced of something or honestly expect something, it will happen exactly that way.
An example from everyday life: You probably too know people who have firm convictions – for example that they will definitely get a job if they are invited to an interview. They succeed because that is exactly what they expect.
And to drill down this example a bit more: These people also appear in job interviews according to their convictions.
You can also put it like this using the law of attraction: In their imagination, these people already got their new job. This means that they already embody the successful person - and consequently "attract" the corresponding event.
Like attracts Like
This means you already have to have in mind what you want in your life before you can even "attract" it. There are several techniques for doing this that numerous authors and mentors teach.HBasically, it's all about becoming the person you want to be in your imagination. When you have a desire, all you have to do in your mind is go to the end of the fulfilled desire.
If you do this consistently, you will automatically appear differently, make different decisions, and ultimately get new results - because you radiate a completely different energy.
The Law of Attraction grants no wishes
By the way, we do this unconsciously all the time. Just think about how you act when you want to have a cup of coffee in the morning. Do you think about all the things that could go wrong on the way to the coffee maker, or do you automatically think about the bottom line – how you will drink or enjoy your coffee?
So, the law of attraction doesn't grant you any wishes. No one, no law and no other fellow human being, can “gift” you anything that you do not carry within yourself.
You are the only cause for all the effects and successes in your life. “In life you always get one of two things, either you get the results you want, or you get reasons or excuses for not getting the results you want.” If you have a wish and doubt that it will be fulfilled, your life reflects exactly these doubts. If you don't love yourself and are insecure, other people will also show you your lack of self-love and self-confidence.
How do I use the Law of Attraction successfully?
In fact, there are countless books and videos about the law of attraction that it's easy to get lost in. Actually, you don't need to know more than that you are the only “cause” in your life and that your life always shows you what you yourself have caused with your thoughts - and that also applies to other people around you.
If you think of another person as being kind and helpful, they will behave the same towards you. And if you think someone can't stand you, then neither will they. Other people can't help but mirror your own beliefs – simply said, that's how life works.
Of course, when it comes to big dreams, it also requires courage to believe that they will come true - especially because to this day we have grown up in a very conservative and intellectually driven society.
We haven't learned that thoughts create reality, and we are the only “cause” in our lives. On the contrary: We have been taught that we are often powerless and subject to the control or actions of a person or event. That we are at the mercy of life and cannot do more than wish and hope. But that's not true!
