3 Simple Steps to the Law of Attraction
by Power of Positivity | on March 13th, 2014
“The action of mind plants that nucleus which, if allowed to grow undisturbed, will eventually
attract to itself all the conditions necessary for its manifestation in outward visible form.” –
The Law of Attraction is a powerful force as real as the Law of Gravity, working at all times
whether we are consciously aware of it or not. The Law of Attraction simply states “like attracts
like”. Your positive (and negative) thoughts, words, and actions will attract that back to you in
Just as this world is composed of physical matter, it is also in energy form. What has happened in
the world and is happening, has been attracted in some way. It doesn’t always seem fair; but
when we begin to learn more about the Law of Attraction and how it can work for us, we can
begin to create the life we desire. A life we truly LOVE!
Thomas Troward, a thought leader who had strong influence on today’s beliefs of the Law of
Attraction, claimed that thought precedes physical form. He believed, “The action of mind
plants that nucleus which, if allowed to grow undisturbed, will eventually attract to itself all the
conditions necessary for its manifestation in outward visible form.”
Another new thought leader, James Allen who wrote “As a Man Thinketh” (which is free right
now on Amazon for the kindle version), believed this same theory. His book brought faith,
inspiration, and self healing to the millions who have read it.
“The Secret” a book and movie by Rhonda Byrne is one of the most recent and popular Law of
Attraction personal development materials available. Both teach the concept that everything one
wants or needs can be satisfied by believing in an outcome, repeatedly thinking about it, and
maintaining positive emotional states to “attract” the desired outcome.
So, the Law of Attraction seems pretty easy and self explanatory, right? Sure, yet so many
people today are unhappy, depressed, and in ruins with life, finances and relationships. In a very
concise and easy way, we want to guide you through the process of the Law of Attraction, and
how to optimize your life in accordance with it.
3 Step Guide to the Law of Attraction
Most people are familiar with the phrase “Ask, Believe, Receive.” While “Ask” is considered
the first step of creation in the Law of Attraction, and we believe Asking is very important, it is
only part of it. Before you ask, be sure it is what you truly wish for.
To start, give yourself time to be alone in silence, where you can sit and reflect on life. Get your
computer, journal or notebook and allow the creative ideas to flow. Ask yourself. . . “What are
my dreams? What are my desires? What are my needs? Where can I see myself going? What do I
love to do? What is fun for me?”.
Allow yourself to open up, dream and be playful with your
visions – just like a child. Children believe they can do anything and do it well. Some of us tend
to lose that feeling as we get older and make mistakes. Mistakes are part of life and they allow us
to adapt, change and grow. We can truly have, be and do anything we set our mind to.
As you do this, write whatever comes to your mind. Allow only good thoughts and feelings to
flow. Good feelings are truly the key to the Wish then Ask process. If your dreams scare you just
a little bit, that’s okay. In fact, that’s good! It means your vision is BIG and your potential is BIG
enough to achieve it. Keep visualizing them, feeling better and better.
To increase the Law of Attraction visualization and creation processes, we strongly suggest
having a vision board. A vision board takes your thoughts and puts them in a physical form you
can see all throughout the day. You can also meditate if you’re into that. Meditation for 5-10
minutes a day can really help unlock and increase your power.
Once you’ve truly decided what it is your wishing for, stay focused and ASK. Asking transforms
the entire Wish process, and begins creation.
Law of Attraction: Step 1 – CHECK!
The next step is intention. At this stage, you believe that what you have already asked for is
coming to you. It’s on it’s way! Sometimes impatience or doubt can creep in during this stage
and completely reverse the creation. Live in faith. Allow each day to be filled with hope, belief,
strength and passion for what is to come – release doubt, worry and fear. Manage your
emotions much like a project manager would a business. Negative emotion does not serve you.
It is an illusion to hold you back from your dreams and wishes. Keep your actions aligned with
your intentions and your desires will naturally attract.
Doreen Virtue described this process very well on an interview she had with Lisa Garr on
GaiamTV. She correlated the process similar to placing an order at a restaurant. You look over
the menu and decide exactly what you want. When the waiter comes, you give him the order
with any specific requests. They happily take your order and head to the kitchen. While you’re
waiting, you enjoy it with friends or family’ not worrying if the waiter is going to get the order
right or if it will even come. Know that you will be taken care of, and that everything will be
The intention stage is where you happily wait and enjoy the journey. Yes, it may and usually
does require action – it is the Law of AttrACTION after all! To be sure you are taking the
correct action, that is in alignment with your wish, you can listen and follow your intuition.
Here, you are taking inspired action steps that are calling you to bring your wishes to fruition.
During this process it’s important to keep your passion flowing, but not overdo it. Live in the
moment and allow time to just be. Take time to be present; trust, and believe in the process..
Being present allows you to connect with everything around you, and recognize the gifts of
opportunity being presented that will allow you to move forward.
3 Key Emotions Needed during the Intention Process
A strong intention requires inner strength. Many desires reside in a place where you aren’t
currently at, and you have to keep your thoughts, words, and actions positive and in alignment
with your intention to ultimately attract your desire. You know that your intention is for your
best interest, but as you set your intention, there will be temptation to fall back into the old
habits and patterns that ultimately keep you from what you want to attract. The light energy
wants you, but so does the dark – they both want to grow. All throughout the spiritual world, we
are told not to give into temptation – that the blessings can be taken from you as quickly as they
are given. Your thoughts can be influenced, but in the big picture, they are your sole possession.
The effectiveness of your belief systems are built on a foundation trust. What you feel is true
can only be true for you if you trust that your belief process will ultimately bring your desires to
fruition. If you feel that your beliefs will not attract your best life, you do not trust them, and
they will not help attract what you seek, but something else. Remember that the Law of
Attraction works both ways; it can bring you what you want, and it can also bring you what you
don’t want. It’s up to you to trust in the process.
Gratitude is key in the Law of Attraction. The Universe rarely delivers all that you desire in
one fell swoop, but rather gives you bits and pieces of the puzzle to realize and put together. For
each bit and piece, you must trust that it is being delivered for your best interest overall, and be
thankful for it. Thankfulness for what you already have before your desires are delivered is a
main ingredient in this recipe for success.
Overall, depending on your own thoughts and
expectancy, the Intention Process can possibly take the longest. The length is truly dependent
upon YOU. Stay patient, focused and determined that it will happen while remaining open to it
possibly coming in a slightly different form. This can and does happen. The abundance you’re
seeking comes through a different avenue.
Potential mistakes and challenges can arise and that’s okay – that’s part of the fun of it. You
always learn something new, and grow just a little more. Remain steadfast because receiving
is next and last step of the Law of Attraction.
Law of Attraction: Step 2 – CHECK!
When you begin the receiving process of the Law of Attraction, congratulate yourself and
CELEBRATE! You deserve it! This excitement will help the manifestation process fully come
to fruition, possibly even accelerate it and exceeding your expectation.
Continue to live in positive emotions and realize and reflect on the true power that you’ve
always had within in you. You can achieve success like this in anything you apply these
principals to. Remember, this isn’t something you’ve just activated because you are conscious of
it, it’s been working the entire time. Now you know how to fully harness your power through the
Law of Attraction. Every thought, word, and action forms a co-creation with God and the
Universe. You do have the infinite power of co-creation.
At this stage, reflect on the journey and your emtiions and ask yourself a few questions. Does the
outcome resonate with who you are and your heart? Do you feel like you are closer, if not into, a
state of pure BLISS?
Consciously working the Law of Attraction to your advantage can bring you success beyond
what you may have previously thought impossible. The potential for everything exists in God
and the Universe, but the ability to attract exists in YOU.
Everyday, continue to receive and FEEL the positive energy and emotions flow through, so you
can live in a state of constant allowing and receiving for your highest good. A state of continual
