Have you heard about The Law of Attraction or watched the episode of Oprah about 'The Secret'? The Law of Attraction, which is the basis for the hit spiritual movie called 'The Secret', is a Universal Law which states 'that which is alike is drawn unto itself'. This is as simple as it sounds and means that 'like attracts like'. You may be thinking, well that sounds all well and good, but how do I use it in my life?'

It's as easy as it sounds!

According to Abraham-Hicks, who are the biggest proponents and teachers of The Law of Attraction, all you have to do is 'feel good' to attract the things that you want in life.

Sound too good to be true? Well, it's not!

What are the things that you really want to experience in your life right now? In other words, what are the things that when you think about them, make you feel good? You see, it's really that simple. All you have to do to consciously activate the Law of Attraction is focus on the things in life that would make you feel good as if you had them right now. Simple enough, right?

Sure, easy!

However, we are warned not to try to focus upon these things all day long. The reason is that when you attempt to focus on what you want but don't yet have for too long then your focus begins to shift to the fact that you don't have it yet. In other words, you begin to focus on the absence or lack of what you want instead of the thing that you really want.

We've all done that, right? Focus on something that we really, really want to the point where we begin to feel badly about the fact that we don't have it yet!

Ugh, no fun!

So, how do you handle this?

The proper way to utilize the Law of Attraction is by focusing upon thoughts, feelings, and images that make you feel good for a short time. Then, after a couple of minutes, you let it go. What I mean by 'let it go' is that you no longer focus upon the things that you want, instead you go about your day. In fact, the more you let it go and enjoy your day the quicker you will begin to attract things.

You see, it's tricky because the more you focus your attention upon something then the more likelihood of you creating resistance to getting this thing becomes. In other words, you may have become too strongly attached to getting this thing and instead created resistance to getting it.


The best way to handle this is by using the Law of Attraction in a playful and fun way. You can have fun with it by experimenting with what you can attract to you more easily by starting with something small. If you try to attract or 'manifest' a million dollars it might not come right away. This is most likely because you either do not believe that it will really happen or you have a lot of resistance around money. Many people try to use the Law of Attraction to attract money only to see it never come. This is usually because their focus is upon the lack of money so they continue to attract a lack of money. Instead, I recommend using the Law of Attraction to attempt to attract something fun and exciting that you don't desperately need to happen right now. Otherwise you will be disappointed when it doesn't work.

The Law of Attraction is always in operation from morning until noon, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Whether you are consciously focused in life on what you want or unconsciously focused on what you don't want, it continues to operate by attracting to you what you hold in your mind. I say that it's much better to decide what you want in life and focus upon that instead of attracting by default.
