How Law of Attraction Works

“Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

The law of attraction suggests that you can attract positive or negative things into your life through your thoughts and actions. It relies on the theory that everything is made up of energy, so the type of energy you put out will come back to you. If you’re ready to use the law of attraction to tell the universe what you want, start by creating a positive mindset so that you can send out positive energy. Then, take action toward your goals and confront your setbacks with a good attitude.

Below are the number one actions under each of the three main categories in which to use the Law of Attraction.

Creating a Positive Mindset

1 Visualize your dreams coming true. Close your eyes and picture yourself living the life you want. Imagine doing your dream job, showing off your talents, or sliding into your new car. Do this every day to solidify your intentions and bring them one step closer to reality.[1]

  • Always picture yourself being successful. For example, imagine yourself getting a promotion at work, not just going about your day-to-day activities. You don’t want to just get the job; you want to excel at it.
“If thou can believe, all things are possible, to him that believeth.” – Mark 9.23

Taking Action

1 Create a vision board for the life you want. Cut out words and pictures from a magazine, print out images, or use photographs to create a collage of what you want. Hang your collage in your living space where you can see it every day. Then, look to your vision board for daily inspiration to work toward your goal.[10]

  • For example, you might include photos of a house you like, the car you want, the job title you want, and a couple in love.
  • Remember, a vision board is not a magic wand. To get what you want, you’ll need to do something to get it.
“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” – Matthew 7:7

Responding to Setbacks

1 Recognize you’re not to blame for accidents, illnesses, or events beyond your control. Everyone experiences hardships at one time or another. This might include losing a job, coping with a medical issue, or suffering an injury. Don’t blame yourself when these things happen, because they happen to everyone.[16]

  • Let’s say someone crashed into your car while you were driving. This is an accident, and you didn’t cause it. Don’t blame yourself!
  • No one can have a perfect life without hardship, even while using a tool like the law of attraction.

(If no) Here are 4 ways to help you hone in on your specific intention:

  • Try phrasing it in 5-10 different ways
  • Make a list of as many details as you can come up with
  • Create a dream board
