The law of attraction is a long-practiced philosophy that suggests that like attracts like. For example, if you think positively, you are going to attract positive results to your life. Whereas, if you think negatively, you are going to invite negative outcomes into your life.
If you want to achieve more success in areas of your life like your health, your finances, your relationships, or your job, you need to start framing your thoughts in a positive manner. The more you are able to reframe your thoughts and desires toward the positive, the more likely you are to achieve the success you desire.
Remember, the law of attraction is essentially boiled down to one phrase: “like attracts like.” If you want positive results, you need to think positively with your goals and values in mind. This, however, does not mean that negative thoughts do not exist.
Negative thoughts exist, and they are an important part of our humanity (more on this in a bit).
The idea for positive thinking is to take those negative thoughts and move them over so you can afford more mental space for positive thinking. If there is something negative happening in your life, how can you find a way to reframe that negative experience or thought into a positive one?
Fill your space with positive thoughts and energy, and you will be able to attract more positive outcomes to your life.
You are in charge of you. Your life is the sum of all your thoughts and respective experiences. To that end, you need to understand that what you believe (either positive or negative) is going to happen to you because you are inviting that experience into your being.
Here are some ways that you can start putting the Laws Of Attraction
into good use for your life:
Your positive thoughts, daily affirmations, and constant gratitude will start to invite more positive outcomes every single day. There are, however, many different benefits from living your life in positive energy and raising yourself to a higher vibration level.
We are all, essentially, made of energy, and that energy operates on different frequencies every single day for all of us. Your goal should be to change the frequency of energy so that it matches with positive thoughts. Positive thoughts, though, naturally boil down to one aspect and that is being grateful for all you are, and all you have.
By using grateful, positive thoughts we can change the frequency of our energy, and the law of attraction brings positive things into our lives. What we attract depends on where and how we focus our attention. The first and fundamental key to success, however, is that we must believe that success is either already ours or soon will be. Once this happens, you will see benefits in all aspects of your life.
Less risk of depression

A better connection to your own spirituality
Taking pleasure from your gratitude
Taking more risks and seeing more opportunities
General journaling of your life and how it is affecting your being.
Gratitude journals for all that you are thankful for in your life.
Make a vision board to see your dreams and watch them become reality.
Practice acceptance for all that happens in your life and that you are where you need to be.
Mindfulness of what you feel, how you are feeling it, and why you are feeling it.
Positive affirmations will make you feel better every single day. Affirm that you are worthy and your life will be as you make it.
Watch for synchronicities! There will be little happenings all around you that are telling you that your
positive thoughts are working!
Be specific about your goals and know EXACTLY what you want.
We mentioned this before, but do know that not every single thing in your life is positive. There is no such thing as “positive vibes only.”
Negative thoughts will come to your brain. Negative outcomes will transpire. This is ALL OK. Negative thoughts and outcomes are a necessary part of the human experience. The difference between someone who uses the law of attraction and someone who does not is how they respond to the negative.
Someone may tell you to avoid the negative, or simply not pay attention to the negative. This is wholeheartedly wrong. That practice is called “toxic positivity.”
The law of attraction is not to avoid the negative, but, rather, to embrace the negative and reframe it to the positive. If you are able to differentiate between the negative and the positive and assign them accordingly, you can find ways to take a negative situation and turn them into a positive outcome.
Perhaps it is a lesson learned, or it is the addition of a new core value to your value system. Whatever the case may be for you, the negative outcome does NOT have to result in the self-blame game. Negative thoughts can be turned around and utilized in ways that reinforce positive responses now or in the future.
You cannot always control what happens to you. That, too, is ok. You can, however, control your response to those circumstances.
The key is to use your long-term goals to make specific, concrete changes in the present that will help you take steps toward your goals.
For example, simply hoping for higher pay isn’t enough.
Your job is to acquire specific skills, seek promotions, or even pursuing a new position. If you can think of it, you have to apply it, and it will pay off in the future.
Become more aware of the aspect of your life which might be holding you back as it pertains to allowing love in your life.
Do you have a fear of vulnerability? Are you afraid to commit? You need to take the steps to overcome those fears. New thoughts and ideas open you up to new scenarios which could allow more people into your life. Your right person is out there waiting for you, now, you have to allow them in.
Instead of simply wishing for more money, you need to assess your financial life and set fiscal goals for now and for the future.
The law of attraction encourages people to shift from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset.
PRO TIP: Instead of focusing on what you lack, practice feeling gratitude for what you have.
The New Thought movement grew out of the teachings of Phineas Quimby in the early 19th century. Early in his life, Quimby was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Early 19th-century medicine had no reliable cure for tuberculosis. Quimby took to horse riding and noted that intense excitement temporarily relieved him from his affliction. This method for relieving his pain and seemingly subsequent recovery prompted Phineas to pursue a study of “Mind over Body.” Although he never used the words “Law of Attraction,” he explained this in a statement that captured the concept in the field of health:
the trouble is in the mind, for the body is only the house for the mind to dwell in, and we put a value on it according to its worth. Therefore if your mind has been deceived by some invisible enemy into a belief, you have put it into the form of a disease, with or without your knowledge. By my theory or truth, I come in contact with your enemy and restore you to your health and happiness. This I do partly mentally and partly by talking till I correct the wrong impressions and establish the Truth, and the Truth is the cure.
In 1855, the term “Law of Attraction” appeared in The Great Harmonia, written by the American spiritualist Andrew Jackson Davis, in a context alluding to the human soul and spheres of the afterlife.
The first articulator of the Law as a general principle was Prentice Mulford. Mulford, a pivotal figure in the development of New Thought thinking, discusses the Law of Attraction at length in his essay “The Law of Success,” published 1886–1887.
The 20th century saw a surge in interest in the subject with many books being written about it, among which are two of the best-selling books of all time; Think and Grow Rich (1937) by Napoleon Hill, The Power of
Positive Thinking (1952) by Norman Vincent Peale, and You Can Heal Your Life (1984) by Louise Hay.
The Abraham-Hicks material is based primarily on the Law of Attraction.
In 2006, the concept of the Law of Attraction gained renewed exposure with the release of the film The Secret (2006), which was then developed into a book of the same title in 2007. The revived and modernized version of the Law of Attraction is known as manifestation.
