By now you have probably heard about the Law of Attraction, but you may feel a bit uncertain about it. Is it real? Is it true that you can deliberately create your life just by changing your thoughts? Any experienced Law of Attraction practitioner will tell you that there’s a little more to it than merely changing your thoughts, but the concept that we “attract” various experiences into our lives is sound. How can you tell for sure? Take a look at your past experiences.

Here are three good places to start looking:

1) The things you fear.

Have you ever noticed that the very things you fear in life tend to gravitate toward you? For example, a person who is terrified of spiders tends to see them everywhere – and may even complain that spiders are always trying to crawl on them or bite them. The same thing goes for anything you fear; you will notice that the more fearful thoughts you have about it the more prevalent it seems to grow in your life.

Closely related to fear is worry. Do you know anyone who worries incessantly? Have you ever noticed how things constantly go wrong for a person who worries? Even if the specific things they worry about don’t happen, they definitely attract other “worrisome” events into their lives with this pattern of thought.

2) The things you desperately want.

Wanting something really, really badly is usually a sure way to repel it, have you ever noticed that? “Wait a minute,” you’re probably thinking, “wanting something should attract it, right?” Only if you want it from the perspective of believing you can have it and focusing on how great it will be to have it.

Most people do the opposite: they moan and groan about how desperately they want this thing (or need it) while also feeling resentful about the fact that they don’t have it. There’s a very big difference in the frequency of energy being emitted with those two examples. In general, wanting from a place of lack will repel; wanting from a place of abundance will attract.

3) The power of expectations.

Finally, have you ever noticed that your experiences tend to be controlled by your expectations? For example, saying, “I really want that, but it will never happen for me” is a good way to make sure you never get it; while saying, “I really want that and I know that somehow I’ll have it” gets the ball rolling in your favor?

These examples may seem simple but take a good look at your own experiences and you will likely see plenty of examples of the Law of Attraction in action.
