For many people their first exposure to The Law of Attraction was watching The Secret, the phenomenal movie that came out about two years ago. I was privileged to have viewed it the week it was released on the internet. I thought the movie was great and was very excited about this information being available to so many people in a way they would access. However, The Secret should be just the beginning of your quest to understand and use The Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the Universe and you need to have an in depth understanding of how it works and how you can use it to manifest what you want in your life.

The Law of Attraction states, that which is like unto itself, is drawn, or like attracts like. Your thoughts are energetically very powerful and attract to you and into your life that which is like them. The Law of Attraction is always responding to the thoughts you hold in your mind. As you come to accept the reality of this Law you will begin to notice the correlation between the thoughts you have been thinking and what is actually coming into your life. Because the Law of Attraction is always responding to your thoughts it is accurate to say that you are creating your own life. Every thing in your life is attracted to you because of the thoughts that you are holding in your mind. The thought that you are focused on in your present moment is creating a vibration within you and the Law of Attraction is responding to it.

Most of us have things in our life that we would never want to attract – things that we do not desire to have in our life. It is easier to believe that someone or something else is responsible. I certainly did not create this, we cry! But we did. We created it by default because we did not have enough understanding of the Universal Law of Attraction or how it is working in our own life. You attracted all of it, there are no exceptions, and nothing shows up in your life by accident! You have invited these unwanted experiences into your life by putting your attention on them, whether you are aware of it or not.

To become a conscious creator you must become aware of what your thoughts and feelings are. You are like a magnet that attracts what you are thinking and feeling. You can not attract abundance if your thoughts and feeling are of lack, unworthiness, and scarcity. Your mind is constantly filled with thoughts and feelings. You want to develop an awarness of those thoughts and feelings and learn to direct your focus to what you want more of in your life. You want to deliberately direct your thoughts to what you desire to attract into your experience and away from what you do not want. You will get what you think about whether you want it or not so begin to develop “thought and feeling awarness” so you can put your attention on what you want in your life.

The more focus and energy you put on a thought the more powerfully it will be drawn to you. This applies to all that you don’t want as well as what you do want. If you are saying ‘I do not want this – go way” you are actually putting attention on what you do not want and attraction it into your experience! Become aware of what you are actually thinking and consciously change your thoughts to focus on what you want the Law of Attraction to bring into your life, what you want to be, do, have, and experience in you life! Become a conscious creator instead of creating by default!
