What Is The Secret to the Law of Attraction?


Control Emotions.

You may have heard the phrase “Law of Attraction” before. But what does it really mean? Simply put, “Like Attracts Like” and “You are what you think about” are two phrases that sum it up pretty well. It is a philosophy that has been around for thousands of years, but has become a social movement within the past ten years.

I first heard of it in 2007, when a friend asked if I had heard about the movie “The Secret”, based on the book by Rhonda Byrne. It could be found online at that time, and so I ordered the DVD. It chronicles Ms. Byrne’s discovery of the Law of Attraction, the principle that states that human thoughts and desires actually influence the outcome of what happens in their lives.

In other words, we can control what happens to us. We can shape our own reality.

I was pleased to hear this, but I already knew that it was true. I had been focusing, daydreaming, journaling about, and envisioning what I wanted in life, well, my whole life. And I can honestly say to this day, there is not anything that I truly wanted that did not come to pass eventually. (Except for my current desire to become a published author. Working on that right now).

This form of manifesting human desires has been around as long as humans. Prayer, chanting, spell casting, visualization….people have used their minds for millennia to bring about what they want. The trick is to be able to consciously utilize the techniques that work on a consistent basis. It is easy to become overwhelmed by life and to get in the habit of living by default, reacting to random events as though we have no control. It does take effort, but like anything else, it can be learned, practiced, and improved upon.

This is not to say that once you employ the Law of Attraction, you will never have anything bad happen in your life. Contrast (negative events or situations) is an integral part of life. It is how we learn what we do want, by experiencing what we do not want. It all hinges on our focus- are we talking about, obsessing about what is wrong, what we do not want? Or are we hopefully positive and expecting the things we want to arrive?

If you are interested in finding out more about how to use your very thoughts to improve your life, you may find the list below helpful. There is so much more to this subject than I can discuss here, but I would love to know if you have any links to websites, books, movies, etc. related to the Law of Attraction.

  2. Great stuff, Renee! Also check out the book Sacred Seduction by Kitty Cavalier. She bases her Law of Attraction teachings on not merely attracting what we want, but seducing it to ourselves. It’s a great spin!

    Recently I found a program by Lisa Nichols, one of the experts featured in The Secret. It’s a fantastic collection of guided creative visualizations. The one she did in the promotional webinar was so powerful, it had me literally sobbing tears of joy! The program is a joint venture with Mindvalley.com & is on sale now 🙂

    Keep up the great content & your other wonderful writing as well, success is assured!
