How I Use The Law Of Attraction To Live More Positively

by - Wednesday, September 06, 2017

Generally, I've found that a lot of people consider me to be a pretty positive person. When it comes to more stressful life situations, I'm usually the one trying to look on the bright side of things. Admittedly, this isn't always the case. Certain things - like work for example - have a way of affecting my mood no matter how good I'm feeling at the time. Overall though, I try to be a glass-half-full kind of girl because no one enjoys being miserable all the time, right?

Recently, I've realised why it is that I have such a positive outlook on life. When I was in 6th form, I was in a really bad place. I was constantly moody and for some reason, I thought all of my friends secretly hated me, which led to me pushing many of them away. I would spend most of my days either whining about my life or bitching about those closest to me. My mum must have noticed how down I was because one day, she came home with this book called The Secret to Teen Power. After reading it, I can honestly say that it helped change the way I think and live. It's all about the Law of Attraction, and if you've never heard of this concept, let me try and explain it to you as simply as I can.

The Law of Attraction is the idea that the thoughts that you hold in your head manifest into your reality. This works for basically anything you think about, even tiny things. It's like when you've got a song stuck in your head for days and then suddenly, you start hearing it everywhere: on the radio, in the shopping centre etc. That, in the simplest way possible, is the Law of Attraction! I admit, it sounds really far-fetched at first, but just a quick google search will show you how many people believe in it - celebrities included. 

So when it comes to everyday life, if you think bad things are going to happen, chances are you'll constantly experience bad situations and vice versa, because that's what you're attracting into your life. It's not even necessarily exactly what you think about that you manifest, it's also impacted by the way you feel. For example, you could be feeling miserable about not having enough money and the next thing you know, your wallet gets stolen or you get an unexpected bill. You weren't necessarily thinking about losing your wallet or paying an expensive bill, but by constantly feeling bad about your lack of wealth, that's what you get more of.

One thing I've found is when I wake up in a bad mood, practically everything that day goes wrong. First, I'll experience delays trying to get to work. Then, while I'm at work my customers and/or managers will scream at me for something that's not my fault. To top it off, when I get home, I'll have an argument with my family, leading me to go to bed angry and the next day, the cycle will repeat. However, on the days that I'm feeling happy, things generally tend to go much better. It all happens with a switch of perspective. It can even be used for relationships with those around you. Haven't you noticed that when you pay attention to all the things you don't like about a person, their flaws become more obvious? I'm definitely guilty of focusing more on a person's bad side rather than their positive attributes, especially if my personality clashes with theirs. 

To use the Law of Attraction to help improve your life/mood, you not only have to start thinking positively but also believe that good things are coming your way. When you get up in the morning, you have to have absolute faith that it will be a good day and you will get everything you've wished for. You will get that promotion. You will make up with that friend you've been fighting with. Everything has to go your way because you've willed it to be so.

There's a little bit of a catch though. You can only focus on the things that you want to happen. You might think you're being positive when you say "I won't get stuck in traffic today" but what you're putting all your attention on is the idea of traffic. Because that's what you're focusing on, traffic is what you'll get. Instead, you have to think "The roads will be clear today" and that's what you'll attract. 

It's not the easiest idea to get your head around, especially because it means looking at things that you're unhappy about from a more positive stance. I'm finding it particularly difficult right now, since I've just moved from my uni house back to my mum's place, which doesn't have any space for me or my things anymore. Plus, I'm working a job that's completely unrelated to what I want to do in the future, so I feel like I'm wasting my time and the degree I've spent 3 years studying for. 

The way I see it though, there's not much point focusing on the things that upset you, because that will leave you miserable all the time. You're better off thinking that things can and will change and that hope should help alter the way you're feeling. Of course you're allowed a few days to be sad and deal with your emotions in whatever way you see fit, but it's when you dwell on the problem that things take a turn for the worst. Me feeling terrible about where I work isn't going to get me a new job, but feeling excited about the possibility of working elsewhere will.

Since discovering the Law of Attraction, I've applied it to my life in most circumstances. I used it to get into my university of choice and for the grade I then graduated with. I've used it in the past for doing well in job interviews. I'll use it for anything where the opposite outcome will seriously disappoint me. I'm not perfect at it. I still occasionally allow negative thoughts to fill my mind but as I'm growing, I'm learning how to be more in control of my emotions and the things I choose to focus on.

I really hope this has encouraged at least one person to find out more about the Law of Attraction. It would be impossible for me to cover the entire concept - and this post is already way too long! - so if you're interested, I would recommend looking into the book & film by Rhonda Byrne called The Secret. I'd say her work is probably the most popular there is on the Law of Attraction but there's so much more out there, especially on YouTube. This video explains it pretty well.

Good luck friends! Here's to living more happy and fulfilled lives together :)
