Law of Attraction 101

The law of attraction is similar to the sayings 'You reap what you sow' or 'what you do comes back to you.' In other words, the law of attraction is about sending and receiving energy. If you're negative, negativity will manifest around you. If you're positive, positive outcomes will manifest in your life. Some people call this karma, while others equate it with the Golden Rule.

Think of a pebble dropping into a placid lake. The law of attraction is like the concentric circles that the pebble creates in the water. The circles keep traveling, spreading outward. Eventually they reach the shore, where they bounce back, then return to the place where you dropped the pebble. With the law of attraction, everything you do is like dropping the pebble into the lake. Everything you do, no matter how big or how small, no matter whether it's positive or negative, comes back to you.

If you shower others with affection, you, too, will be showered with affection. If you are rude to others, they will be rude right back to you. It's as if with the law of attraction, human beings become mirror images of one another.

If you constantly worry about something bad happening, such as getting in a car accident, eventually you're going to get into a car accident. But if you always envision yourself and your loved ones traveling safely, you will enjoy safe journeys. Such is the law of attraction.

Monitoring Our Emotions, Thoughts and Decisions

If you don't like a particular situation, you can change it through the law of attraction. By recognizing and transforming negative emotions such as fear, hate, anger and worry, we can attract better circumstances in our lives. Although all emotions are valid, we can't let negative emotions become chronic, or else we'll invite myriad unsavory scenarios into our lives. The very first step, and the trickiest, is to become aware of your negative thoughts and emotions. Then you can work on transforming them to positive thoughts and emotions. You can either be angry about an unexpected $400 auto repair bill, or you can be grateful that you have enough money to pay for it!

Likewise, we can monitor our decisions. Sometimes we make poor decisions based on their superficial allure. Perhaps we work for a terrific boss, but we want to make more money; so we accept a higher-paying job working for a boss with anger-control issues. Which is more important, $3,000 more a year, or happiness? According to the law of attraction, we literally create our own reality.
