So What’s This Secret All About?
The Law of Attraction says that you will attract into your life whatever you focus on. Whatever you give your energy and attention to will manifest in time. Sometimes almost immediately and other times, months or years later.
The Law of Attraction is one of the most talked about topics in recent years, with many people having had more than enough of it, probably because of people who exploit it to sell courses and books.
The scriptures don’t mention the law of attraction specifically, but many verses teach this principle. Numerous verses in the Bible actually teach that stepping out in faith will attract or draw to you fulfillment and abundance. Not necessarily in the form of cash or mansions, although that can happen, but more of joy, happiness, and a sense of oneness.
“If thou can believe, all things are possible, to him that believeth.”Mark 9.23
“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”Matthew 7:7
“And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”Matthew 21:22
From Genesis to Revelation, there are over 300 references to the importance of our thoughts. The book of Proverbs includes this principle, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.”
The Dhammapada is a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form and one of the better-known Buddhist scriptures…
“Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes,
And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes
The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills: —
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:
Environment is but his looking-glass”
It explains the law of karma, but also suggests the law of attraction as well.
The law of attraction is a universal principle that is not limited by time or space and can be found in the teachings of most religions. It is one of the most active forces in the universe.
The law of attraction teaches that you will attract into your life whatever you think about. It is not what you simply wish to appear, but rather what you are focused on or thinking about that will gradually come to pass. Another way of saying it is, whatever you give attention and energy to will manifest in your life.
How does this work? As I understand it, we all have an energetic vibration, and when we focus our thoughts on something we want, this vibration attracts like energies, and more like energies flow to us. The more we focus on things we don’t want in our lives the more we attract them to us. Or, whatever we put our energy towards, be it positive or negative, will expand in our lives.
If we don’t pay attention to our thoughts, then whatever is most dominant in our thoughts will grow in our lives. For example: If you think about how overweight you are every day then that’s exactly what you will continue to see when you look in the mirror. But if you think about how beautiful and slender you will be after losing weight, then that’s exactly what you will continue to see when you look in
The law of attraction is a universal law. “According to your faith, shall it be done to you.”Matthew 9:29
