Knowing about the law of attraction is one thing, but it doesn’t mean that you are actually using it. A lot of people have learned about the law of attraction, but have never took the time to understand how to use it to improve their life.
At the base level, the first thing to learn is that you are already using the law of attraction; we all are, at all times. Knowing this, the first step is to stop attracting things you don’t want into your life.
This part can be a little tricky at first, but it mostly just requires that you are willing to be a little more aware of what you are doing and willing to change some of your habits.
Take a minute and think about what you focus on in your daily life. Are you feeling frustrated when you drive your car around in traffic? Do you get angry with other drivers? Well, you are not alone; but you need to realize that when you are feeling that way, you are using the law of attraction to attract to you more frustration and anger.
Do you like scary movies or crime shows? I don’t want to frighten you, but when you are focusing you attention on something that makes you feel scared, you are inviting fear into your life. You may not be attracting a serial killer, but you are attracting situations where you will feel scared, and let’s face it; fearful situations are usually not good situations.
Do you complain to other people about what you don’t like about your life, your partner or your job? If you do, you are attracting more of what you are not happy about.
Do you listen with empathy when someone describes disease, either their own or someone else’s? Do you, out of sympathy, tell them about a time when you had a similar experience? These are perfectly normal human responses, but they are not good for you. Of course, you are only trying to be nice, but you are actually using the law of attraction to bring you MORE of the things you don’t want. And the more emotionally involved you get, the more intensely you are attracting.
It’s a good idea to do an inventory to determine what you are attracting on a regular basis. Be honest with yourself and don’t feel bad if you find that you are focusing on a lot of negative things. Feeling bad doesn’t help one bit. Instead, be grateful that you are now aware of what you have been doing wrong, and can start changing those habits.
The next time you feel aggravated in traffic, take a deep breath and detach from the situation. Remind yourself that it’s never personal and try to cut the other drivers some slack. Try to come up with a best possible scenario as to why the other person is driving like a maniac.
Every time you focus on something negative, you are using your imagination. But it is just as easy to imagine good things and use the law of attraction to create something positive; though you may not be used to doing it yet. Maybe their child had an emergency and they are rushing to get to it? Maybe that guy’s wife just went into labor?
It is just as easy to use your imagination to see someone as a good person as it is to see them a jerk, and the choice (that’s the key word) is always yours. With time and practice, we can start to change our perspective and begin using the law of attraction to create better experiences and a better life.
