<>We already know that the Law of Attraction can be used effectively… and the positive impact that embracing the law and replacing all negative emotions with positive mind-affirmations can have on what you see in your life. However, there are several common traps that people can fall into when they are trying to apply the rules of attraction to their love lives.
<>But the one who really first articulated the Law as general principle was Prentice Mulford. Mulford, a pivotal figure in the development of New Thought thinking, discusses the Law of Attraction at length in, for example, his essay "The Law of Success",[15] published 1886-1887. In this, Mulford was followed by other New Thought authors, such as Henry Wood (starting with his God’s Image in Man,[16] 1892), and Ralph Waldo Trine (starting with his first book, What All the World's A-Seeking,[17] 1896). For these authors, the Law of Attraction is concerned not only about health but every aspect of life.[18][19]
<>Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I am so glad you liked the post. I think a lot of people have that fear, so you are certainly not alone in that. One of the things that has helped me most with that is remembering how ‘challenging’ the human experience is, and knowing we all have our ‘stuff’ that we hold inside, bad things that have happened to us, etc.. For the most part, I think lots of people actually want to talk about these things and not feel like they are the only one struggling. Intellectually we know that isn’t true, but how we feel is often very different. When we think about it this way, sharing our own ‘stuff’ feels less scary. And, as you work on your attraction, you will naturally begin to meet up with people who you do feel comfortable with, and will not pull away when things get closer.
<>Many of us have had the experience where we keep on attracting the same kind of a person into our lives, and not in a good way! It happens because of the powerful law of attraction, but you don't have to keep on repeating the same mistake. What you need to do is to find a way to bless the past relationships, and to get yourself into a better feeling place regarding past loves, otherwise, you will keep on attracting the same type of a person. This is another topic that is discussed in this e-book.
<>If you are an angry person, you will attract other angry people to sit around and talk about the messed-up world. You’ll attract scenarios that perpetuate your anger. If you’re a fearful person, you will likely attract other people who share your fears as well as situations that prove the world isn’t a safe place. If you have a belief that people cannot be trusted, you’ll attract events in your life that demonstrate all the myriad ways in which people are untrustworthy.
<>Now that you understand what the Law of Attraction really is and how it works, let’s talk about the ways you can use it to improve your life. The Law of Attraction is a universal principle that is already working in your life. Start intentionally thinking and feeling what it is you want to attract into your life — such as money, love and relationships, health and spirituality — to make the Law of Attraction work for you.
<>"I have been a single mother for seven years, and during that time I have had a few disastrous relationships. I have always wanted a very close and special relationship but couldn't find it. I had my heart broken a couple of times, but instead of giving up, I stated exactly what I wanted my man to be like. I said to my sister, "I just want to meet someone who is..." and I wrote down who my perfect partner and relationship was. I then let it go, with absolute faith that one day I would meet him. Two weeks later, I did. We have already planned to move in together and have a baby soon after my next manifestation. I am thankful every day that I discovered The Law Of Attraction, as it has truly changed my world."
<>The real estate market seemed to turn worse every month. Half or more of the homes on the market were termed distressed properties - either foreclosures or short sales - where we tried to persuade the bank to take less than what’s owed on it, as a means of preventing them having to foreclose. An extremely difficult and laborious process, with very little cooperation on the part of the banks. Furthermore, the banks were cracking down on mortgage lending - meaning fewer people were able to qualify for mortgages.
<>When we are really longing for a relationship, it is easy to let standards and boundaries go out the window. If you are looking for a guy, you may be willing to give anyone that floats into your orbit a chance.  Now, I am not saying not to be open to different people, because I think that is a good idea. Sometimes we can get too specific with the type of person we want to meet, and close off potential matches. Sometimes, what we think we want in a person is really something different, or not as important as we deem it now.
<>The New Thought movement (Law of Attraction Origins) grew out of the teachings of Phineas Quimby in the early 19th century. Early in his life, Quimby was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Unfortunately, medicinal treatment wasn't working, so he began carriage riding through his hometown, Lebanon, New Hampshire. He then regained his health and recovered, an event that prompted his study of "mind over body".[10] Although he never used the words 'Law of Attraction', he explained this in a statement that captured the concept in the field of health:
<>I thoroughly enjoyed reading these stories that demonstrate successfully using one's imagination to create experiences in keeping with desires. They may not be from our current times, but are universal and timeless. I feel Inspired to apply these examples to my own life. I am also a student of Abraham as taught by Esther Hicks and these examples fit perfectly with those teachings.
<>For many of us, it’s extremely difficult to switch from the mindset that we have lived our whole life to the one that we can continue to live upon, without some extra help. That help can be found in other LoAers, motivational speakers, hypnosis and other tools like vision boards ans wish lists, but the main thing is that we want to make the change, and to act upon it.
<>Gabriel…I have been going for energy healing sessions since years now and have been working on myself…..I must admit that I still have apprehensions on manifesting my soulmate desires and often wallow on self pity despite all the inner work I have been doing…..however, reading this article today has completely opened my heart and mind and given me so much hope and positivity…..you are absolutely right in quoting that our soulmates are within us all along…..I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for writing such an articulate, poignant and powerful article for us…..thank you so much for opening our heart to love and creating our own reality……thank you for telling us that IT IS possible and IT exists for each of us…….much love
<>If you are really struggling with relationships, there is something happening deep inside that is creating the outcomes you keep experiencing. You are getting something you want, you are protecting yourself from something you fear. You have some sort of image of yourself that deems you unworthy of love. Again, this may not vibe with your conscious mind, that is in a constant state of wanting happiness and good things. You are not cursed. You are not some horrible person that only deserves douches. You have the power to change this, if you are willing to do the inner work and take responsibility. And by responsibility, I don’t mean blame. Two very different energies there. One empowers us, and the other keeps us feeling terrible.
<>“I was sitting having breakfast in my garden before work on Monday, and doing my appreciation list, being grateful for all the things I love about my garden and any time I spend in it. Also how easy I find it to get into a higher vibration when I’m surrounded by plants and getting my hands in the soil. I began to think about how amazing and enjoyable it would be to write articles about gardening as a career. For some reason I started to think about Vita Sackville-West. I don’t know much about her except that she was a novelist in the 30’s/40’s and had a big garden and wrote magazine articles about it. I started picturing myself doing something similar. Later that day, after having lunch with a colleague he wanted to go to a bookshop. We walked in front on me on a display table was a book of all of Vita Sackville-West’s magazine articles about gardening. It wasn’t even a display about gardening- everything else was about war or politics. If I had gone looking for that book I would probably have never found it. I have taken it as a nod from the Universe to follow my instincts and start writing about my garden.”
<>The consciousness of our soul is also the real programmer of our life, that is, with it we have, before our birth in the body, programmed the main principles of our physical life, the patterns of experiences we intend to experience. (When it comes to the nature of the individual soul, you can get the best information from Michael Newton in his works; and when it comes to the position of the soul in this world, the best information can be obtained in the book Soul Guide On Planet Earth). This basic program of our soul can't be changed by the wishes of our physical mind or ego. We can only choose the details of his achievement. The consciousness of our soul decides which wills of our mind will be realized and which will not. This regulation is carried out through our higher mind, which has a direct connection with the spirit of our soul, and which has a far broader perspective than the ego, and therefore sees where this fulfillment of the desire would take us. Those desires that are in accordance with the program of experience of our soul, receive money, or resources for achievement, and those which are not in accordance with this program, won't receive anything. Our soul always keeps us away from anything bad as much as it can, but our mind is sometimes stronger.
<>“For a long time I had read that ‘your thoughts create your reality’ and ‘positive thinking’- but something wasn’t working until this new approach- the techniques are literally life changing. I wanted to share an interesting and some might think ‘trivial’ story which was certainly helpful to me and shows the many uses for appreciation: After being inspired by a previous Success Story, I decided to take a different approach to the ‘ant invasion’ I was experiencing in my house. Rather than stay in annoyance (the words ‘what you resist, persists’ came into my mind)- I decided to welcome them in, appreciating them and their right to be (amazing designed forms, ability to work as a team etc.). I then went into ‘good things about the ants being here’ which included a nudge to tidy up and vacuum more which was a win-win. The next day- after doing this exercise just briefly- and without any intervention on my behalf- they had all gone.”
<>There is a trick to The Law of Attraction and it's not as magical as one might imagine: we attract the things that we focus on. When we focus on not having enough, that thought form supports the "lack of" we routinely experience. We are forever reminded to use affirmations and to keep our thoughts positive, but "feeling sorry for myself" continues to be the mantra of many people. Furthermore, we can be bombarded with repetitive negative phrases in our thinking, such as:
<>“I heard a conversation which affirmed where I am on my journey at the moment when a girl on the bus was talking to her friend about spirituality and saying about the value of appreciating all of the good that is currently in your life and all of the things that you do have. Another minor but pleasing manifestation was that I was on a coach journey and the coach wasn’t supposed to be stopping for two hours and I suddenly felt hungry. I thought about what I would like to eat and then relaxed thinking that the two hours would probably go quite quickly. Next thing I knew, only about ten minutes later the bus was pulling into a service station and I could buy the food I wanted! These felt like wonderful reminders of how interconnected we all are.”
<>You can be happy now, and by doing this work, you are re-creating your world and embracing your capacity to Love. You are growing yourself into a new you. You are becoming the kind of person you’ll eventually attract into your life.  You’re becoming more and more your True Self! Once you align with your True Self and take inspired action from that place, the possibilities are infinite!
<>One thing I found on a website is the fact that the LOA makes people believe that they are totally in charge of their life which is not true.You think you can do everything with the power of your mind. They forget God’s will and what I’ll add is that they forget the notion of destiny. You will get things when they are within the brackets of you destiny. You may want something badly and you’ll never get it, just because it was not written this way for you. That’s why you can get the small things because they don’t compromise the big lines of your life chart. And I can still go further after my explorations I will soon be able to say that you don’t really attract things, you feel you’ll get them. It’s just intuition.
<>“He was an actor and I had his poster on my wall- and a huge thing for him- as a teenager. After using the Law of Attraction processes, specifically appreciating my relationships, I saw movement on my non-existent love life. Following a series of incredible synchronicities, before I knew it there ‘he’ was, across the table from me in one of those ‘name’ restaurants in London. It was like one of those fairy-tale movies. We ended up dating a few times and had a really good time together… Who would have thought my dream would come true all these years later?!”
<>“I’ve read this before on your success stories and I agree: your work is the ‘missing link’ I was waiting for. I was trying so hard to ‘attract’ a better life and didn’t realise my ‘trying’ was blocking this better life from happening. The ease of your meditations and appreciations (and other techniques) have touched my life like nothing before- and it seems that the less I do; the less I think; the less Law of Attraction sites I subscribe to (apart from yours); the more I relax- the more good happens. My manifestations so far? I’m earning more money than I’ve earned in years; I seem to attract eligible men wherever I go… Which would be amazing (and is an amazing compliment)- if it wasn’t for the fact I am well and truly ‘settled’ in my current committed relationship (which yes, I attracted after you’re Finding Love with the Law of Attraction workshop a few years ago). Thank you for allowing me to live life as I was meant to live it- and the opportunity to share my success with everyone. See you at a group soon!”
<>I know this isn’t easy. I know how hard it is. It’s why, when working with the Law of Attraction, it’s often best to say, “I want X or something better” or “I want a relationship with my boyfriend or someone better.” Because what if you could have someone better? What if you could be with someone who didn’t want to spend a day without you, let alone not be able to meet you every few days?
