The Law of Attraction Defined
I always get asked," Why doesn't the Law of Attraction work for me?” Well, first let's get a good understanding of the Law of Attraction. This is the way I've come to understand it: The Law of Attraction is an indiscriminate law- just like gravity- that produces or brings to life that which we hold in our subconscious. It is a Universal Law that is always working; whether you are sleeping, eating, showering, fighting, loving, working, planting a garden or stuck in traffic. It doesn't matter. IT ALWAYS WORKS.
The Human Problem #1
The problem is that after seeing The Secret, most people disregarded the message thinking it doesn't work for them. What they don't understand is that the Law is working perfectly and is giving them exactly what they are focusing on. They look around at their life and see the same conditions and they get frustrated with the Law of Attraction. But you have to remember, the Law only gives you what you focus on. It doesn't care whether you like it or don’t want it. For example, if you dread going to work everyday and then you probably hate getting up in the morning. You don't look forward to the drive there and you certainly don't look forward to getting paid. I bet you even feel underpaid, overworked and bored with your job. What you probably don't know is that you actually created those circumstances. You are at fault. Why? Because the more you focus on disliking your job, the more the Universe will line up experiences that will justify your feelings of dislike. The more you hate going to work, the more experiences YOU will create with your subconscious mind that will cause you to hate your work even more. It's a never-ending cycle and you are the culprit. Now if you don't agree with me, it's fine. The Law is still working either for you or against you, so why don't we turn this thing around so we can benefit from it, right?
Deniability vs. Accountability
First things first. The first step to working with the Law of Attraction and changing your life is to take responsibility for where you are right now. After reading this article you can't blame anyone else but YOU for any conditions in your life you feel are out of control. You see by our very nature, we were created to be fruitful and multiply, to have dominion over this precious gift called Earth. We were created in the image of God with all of His creative characteristics. Every time we speak, we are creating our world and our experiences because our words are spoken thoughts which cause us to act. Those acts become habits or what I like to call our mental defaults and they in turn lead us to our destiny. So once we become aware that we are creative beings with the power to create our future, everything begins to change. Our thoughts, our words and therefore our actions begin to change.
The Human Problem #2
Most people, even after understanding that they have complete control over their lives still feel stuck in their current problems and have trouble changing. You may understand The Secret and the Law of Attraction but somehow you still have your nose pressed hard against the glass on the outside looking in at what could be your best life-someday. The visualizations are great, and the affirmations make you feel good but you want results-now. How do I make the jump from where I am now to where I want to be? I've found that a person's self-worth is the Master Key to the Law of Attraction. How do you see yourself? Do you think you are capable of finding happiness in a relationship? Do you think you are worthy of being loved? Do you feel you deserve to live a wealthy life full of luxury and opulence? Well, the answer is YES! We were created to live an adventurous, fun-filled life, overflowing with love and joy. We were designed to live a fulfilling life and then help to create it for others. Not appreciating yourself is the number one reason most people won't fulfill their heart's desires. They just can't see themselves attaining it. They think it’s for someone else.
Take the Self-Worth Test
How can you tell your low self-esteem is what's keeping you from mastering the Law of Attraction? Truthfully answer the questions below:
If you are single, does your heart sink when you see a couple holding hands? Yes or No
If you are struggling with your bills, do you get a knot in your stomach when you think about payday? Yes or No
Do you feel bad when you look in the mirror or avoid looking in the mirror? Yes or No
Do you dread going home after a long day at work, to cook for the family and interact with your spouse? Yes or No
Do you worry about your bills when the offering plate comes around at church? Yes or No
If you said Yes to any of these questions, you my friend must work to change your understanding of who you really are. The reason you feel bad is because you are not expecting any of these circumstances to change so you don't look forward to them. You don't expect them to change because you don't believe you deserve the best that life has to offer. You are so precious in God's eyes! Did you know you were created to live Heaven on Earth? Every area of your life is supposed to be under your control: Spiritual, Financial, Relationships & Health. Once you recognize that this is the root of the problem you can begin to take the steps to restoring your self-worth and really see a change in your life.
