The law of attraction and how it can change your life

The Law of Attraction (LOA) uses the power of our minds to translate thoughts into reality. It is based on the idea that anything imaginable can be achieved. This article will help break down the aspects of the Law of Attraction and how it can be applied to your life. 

The Law of Attraction is actually based on quantum physics. It is a principle in the universe that is constantly at work. A perfect comparison to the LOA is a magnet. For example, if you are feeling happy and energetic today, then you are sending positive energy into the universe. Conversely, if you are feeling sad and anxious, you are sending negative energy. The theory states that the LOA will respond to the energy you are putting out into the universe and return that energy right back.Going back to the magnet comparison that“like attracts like.” 

Another way to think about LOA, is the type of energy given off. High energy frequencies are equated with being happy, and low energy frequencies are equated with being sad. This is why when someone gets a “bad vibe” from someone, they probably felt like their energies didn’t match up, causing their energies to clash. 

Now that the definition of the LOA is clear, here is how to change your mentality and apply it to your life. In order to fully use the LOA, you have to start by changing your mentality. For example, if you feel as though you have bad friends and constantly thinking about it, you are putting that negative energy out into the universe. Instead, constantly tell yourself that you have great friends that are loving and supportive, then eventually the universe will return that energy back to you. LOA is entirely based on the idea of convincing yourself to feel the way you want to feel. It can be small, for example; if you are running late to school, instead of complaining about how late you will be, picture yourself arriving on time and focus on that accomplishing feeling. 

Of course, it takes a little more than just feelings to fully participate in the LOA. Not only do you have to change your mentality, you also have to fully believe in what you want. All it takes is mental convincing. Tell yourself you are loved, happy and worthy! 

After you have conquered the most difficult steps, the final way to allow the LOA into your life is by matching your vibration with the universe. This is not as difficult as it sounds, all it takes is creating positive emotions such as love and joy through doing kind things for others and yourself. 

Many celebrities have had success stories with the LOA, including Oprah Winfrey. The Law Of Attraction can be applied to many major aspects of your life such as love and success, however, it can also be applied to the smaller things in life as well!
