The Law of Attraction – It works for me!

What Is the Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction is an understanding of one of the natural laws that have been studied and developed over the ages. It teaches that each one of us is ultimately responsible for everything in our lives. According to the Law of Attraction, we create our own reality, we manifest what we think about most into existence, and then into our lives. The law is neutral, it is neither good nor bad. It will manifest negative experiences and situations if you focus on the negative. Likewise, it will manifest positive experiences and situations to you if think about, and focus, on the positive. It is based on the belief that thoughts are a form of energy, an energy that interacts with the greater universe. So, with practice, you can use the Law of Attraction, and you can create the life of your dreams.

The Three Key Principals of the Law of Attraction.

There are three central universal principles that make up the Law of Attraction, these are:

Ask – Believe – Receive.

Ask – Ask the Universe for what you want. You must be specific. It should be an intention. An intention is a declaration to the Universe. It is unambiguous and definite. Write it down in the present tense, and as if you already have it.

Believe that you are going to receive it – You must focus on what you want. You must believe that you already have it, imagine it as already yours, feel it, smell it taste it, hear it and live it! Have faith, know, that it will come to you. The more emotion that you feel as you imagine, the more detailed your visualizations, the more successful you will be.

Receive – be prepared for whatever you have asked for to come to you, expect it, make provision for it, have faith, and know it will arrive.

Once is not enough, you must perform these exercises’ of imagination and visualization regularly and with passion until you have received.

However, here is the caveat, and it is best expressed in this old saying – ‘be careful what you wish for, for you might just get it’. You can just as easily attract lack, poverty, and misfortune into your reality as you can wealth riches and the life of your dreams. So, be mindful of that which you focus on and ask for, you must remember that the Law of Attraction is impartial, and it will always give you what you ask for.

Other Principals Associated with the Law of Attraction.

Cause and Effect

The Law of Cause and Effect this law states that whatever action you take, everything you do, say, or think, is a Cause, and every Cause has an Effect. We use this law deliberately every minute of every day, we take actions to cause something else to happen, we tell someone our email address – Cause, they can now send us a message – Effect. This also works for our thoughts, feelings, and words. Whatever thoughts, feelings, or words you put out into the Universe will come back to you as your reality. If you put out thoughts, feelings, or words of love, tranquillity, and abundance, you will receive back love, tranquillity, and abundance. If you think good thoughts, good will come back to you. But, if you put out thoughts, feelings, or words of negativity, resentment, and lack, your reality will be negative, resentful, and lacking. If you think or speak unpleasantness, unpleasantness will surely return and visit you.

Nature detests a vacuum

This Law of Attraction states that by removing something from your life, you can make space for something different to take its place. So, you can remove a negative thought from your mind, for example, and replace it with a positive one. It is based on the idea that it is not possible to have a completely empty space in your life or in your mind. And, since something will always need to fill the vacuum, it is important that you fill the space with positivity, love, and happiness.

Everything Just Is

There is no ‘time’ for the Universe, there is no ‘where’ for the Universe, there is no ‘greater’ or ‘lesser’ for the Universe, everything is effortless. It is just as easy to manifest a big thing as it is to manifest something small, the only difference is in your own perception of what you want to manifest. Everything just is…

There is Only the Now

All that exists is the now, the past has gone, the future does not yet exist, there is only now. When you are aware that you are in the now, your manifestations will be more powerful. You can bring yourself into awareness, and therefore into the now, by just asking yourself some simple questions, ‘Am I aware?’, or, ‘What am I thinking about?’.

Methods to Attract Good Things into Your Life.

As I stated in the first paragraph, The Law of Attraction states that we create our own reality. What we focus on is what we bring into our lives. It suggests that what we believe will happen in our life is what does actually happen.

Some methods that you can use to attract the things you want into your life include:


Be grateful – this is probably the most important lesson you will ever learn. Be grateful for all that you already have. You will ALWAYS have things to be grateful for, even if you do not immediately realise it. Be grateful that you can read this article, maybe you could be grateful that the Universe guided you to this article. Be grateful that you are in good health, or if you are not in good health, be grateful that healthcare is available to you. Be grateful for the last meal you had. Be grateful for the air in your lungs. Be grateful for those that love you. Be grateful for every day that you wake up on planet Earth. When you look for it, there is always something to be grateful for.


Be imaginative, be creative. Visualize yourself ALREADY having the things that you want. See yourself driving that car, living in that house, going on those trips. See it in the first person, imagine what exactly it feels like, the soft leather of the seats hugging your body, that new car smell, the feel of the steering wheel. Walk from room to room in your new house, imagine how you will decorate it in your own unique style, feel the plush carpets beneath your feet, imagine the beautiful view of the extensive gardens. Live and visualise your dreams in your own mind as vividly as you can, as often as you can. There is a good book on visualisation, ‘How to make your mental pictures come true’, by George Schubel, it is available from Amazon, or there is a fully unabridged version read on YouTube, link here.

Look for the positive in every situation:

You will have heard of the saying that ‘every cloud has a silver lining’, and this is true, even if we do not see it at first. There is always a positive outcome that can be taken from any situation. You will see this in time when you look back on any situation and its resultant consequences. However, ultimately, it is up to you to look for the good and the positive in life. If you just remember this one thing, it will help you through times in your life when all seems bleak – everything happens for a reason, everything. 

Learn how to identify negative thinking:

When you learn how to identify the symptoms of negative thinking, you will be able to reframe these thoughts in a more positive light. First, close your eyes and become aware of your thoughts. How are you thinking and feeling? If you are feeling sad or down, try to remember the good times, when you were at your happiest, or remember an experience or situation that brought you joy. You might also want to try visualising positive images, like a baby, a loved one, cute animals, or pets for example. Listening to some uplifting music, or watching inspiring videos, often helps to exchange negative thoughts for more positive ones. However, the best method that I have found to turn my negative thoughts and feelings around, is just to think of all the things I have in my life that I am grateful for.  

Use positive affirmations:

I use positive affirmations every day and have done so for the last two years of my life. These last two years have undoubtedly, been the happiest of my life. In fact, many things have changed for me since I started using positive affirmations, I am happier, I am more content, I am more fulfilled, I certainly have more money, I am grateful for what I have, and I am a much more positive person. I definitely put these changes in my life down to the use of positive affirmations.

The words ‘I Am’ are the most powerful words in the world, and they are the basis of all affirmations. With the words ‘I Am’, you are making a definite and irrefutable declaration to the Universe of what you are. And, when you declare something and really believe it, the Universe will deliver. There are many excellent YouTube videos that can help you with affirmations, ‘I Am’ by Justin Perry of YouAreCreators is only 4 minutes long, but is really powerful, and ‘I Am’ by Clark Kegley is longer and more comprehensive and also worth a listen.

Some of the positive affirmations I use every morning are:

I am happy. I am joyful. I am loved. I am healthy. I am wealthy. I am wise. I am rich. I am successful. I am peaceful. I am harmonious. I am inspired. I am creative. I am intuitive. I am charismatic.


Again, I do this every day. Writing down what you are grateful for, or writing your thoughts, feelings, and desires, is a powerful way to focus, and demonstrate to the Universe, what you really want, and how you really feel. It also acts as a log of your daily thought patterns, and a diary of your progress.

Make a Vision Board:

A vision board is a visual reminder of all of the things that you desire. It is a collage of photos and inspirations pasted onto a board and displayed in a prominent position as a reminder and inspiration to you. It helps you maintain a positive mindset, stay motivated, and focus on your goals.

Positive self-talk:

Engage in positive self-talk each day. Spend a few minutes of each day reminding yourself of how great you really are, and what you bring to the world and all of the people in it! The more often that you do this, the more you will start to realise just how true it is. It may be hard at first, particularly if you are self-conscious, but persevere, it will pay dividends. This is more effective if done in a mirror when you are actually talking to yourself. Over time, this will become much easier, and you will find it harder to maintain a negative mindset.

You must take Positive Action!

One of the biggest pitfalls those new to the Law of Attraction often fall into is to believe that it’s the belief that good things, and all that they desire, will come to them without them taking any sort of positive action. This is nonsense, positive action is always required. To get the process going, you need to just start.

Law of Attraction and Positivity.

It is a positive outlook that creates the behaviours, which in turn bring such great results into being. Those who adopt a positive outlook don’t receive their benefits from their attitudes alone—it’s the behaviour the attitudes inspire that creates real change.

The History of the Law of Attraction.

While the law of attraction has received quite a bit of attention in recent years, particularly with the publication of “The Secret” in 2006, the idea is not exactly new. These concepts have been around for thousands of years, and are quoted in many ancient scriptures. Even some holy books make reference to notions and ideologies more generally thought to be associated with the law of attraction. However, the law of attraction’s modern roots dates back to the early 19th-century, in an ideology known as ‘New Thought.’ Many of the original principal proponents of  ‘New Thought’, are still quoted and read today, indeed a list of many of these authors and their works can be found on this website.

A Final Thought.

The law of attraction has certainly made a big impact on my life, and things have definitely changed for the better. Personally, I believe in the Universe, I believe in the law, I believe in the power.

I’ll leave you with an example, it was actually my first experience of reaping the rewards of the law of attraction. I was listening to ‘The Secret’ as I was on my daily ‘lockdown walk’, and I was at a part in the book that suggested that if you focus and think about something it would come to you. I immediately thought about money, (well who wouldn’t?), in less than a minute I came across a pound coin on the path. Coincidence, possibly. But I will always put it down to the law of attraction.

Truths that will change your life


I was 52 years old before I learned my most important life lessons: Life can be so much easier than we choose to make it. My life is in my hands – it is what I make of it. Life can be as happy, loving, joyous, fulfilling and downright amazing as I choose it to be. The Universe loves me and wants me to be happy, prosperous, fulfilled. Things will always turn out for the best in the end. Have faith, let things go, ask and trust in the Universe. I have a choice! I have always had a choice! And I have more power and opportunity than I ever realised!
