Law of Attraction Techniques
Think of the Law of Attraction as gravity. Toss a penny from your roof, it lands on the ground. Try to jump off your couch, you’ll hit the ground. Gravity is an unchanging law of our universe. And understanding the law of gravity allows you to predict what will happen. The Law of Attraction works the same way. Things within our universe tend to migrate toward other like things. We’re using the word “things” here because this law encompasses thoughts, feelings, people, objects, and everything else in our universe. It’s a universal principle, so it applies to all things. Like attracts like. Like migrates toward like.
Believing it’s true or untrue doesn’t change anything. It’s a simple universal principle. However, the better you understand it, the more you can start predicting and expecting what happens to you, for you. Your awareness of the Law of Attraction can change your life.
9 Manifestation Techniques You Should Be Using
1. Multi-Perspective Visualization
When you do a creative visualization exercise, you imagine doing what you want to manifest, right? Well, you can also do visualizations from a third-person perspective, seeing yourself from the outside. Studies show that sports stars often improve their skills most effectively by seeing themselves in their visualizations. Try alternating the perspective you use, and see which gets the best results. For what it’s worth, many people find the third-person perspective the best, though it may take some time getting used to if you’ve always conducted visualizations from the first person.
2. Intention Point Shifting
The Intention Point is possibly the best-kept secret of the Law of Attraction. Most of the success comes directly from gaining a better understanding of what the Intention Point is and from learning how to adjust it to communicate a more coherent, strong message to the Universe. In some senses, Intention Point techniques are the only ones you’ll ever really need to properly use the Law of Attraction.
Your Intention Point is the “meeting ground” between your heart and your mind. When you activate your Intention Point you manifest from a higher energy vibration so things come faster and easier.
3. Multi-Sensory Visualization
As well as changing up your perspective when you’re visualizing, it’s so important that you learn how to do multi-sensory visualizations. What I mean is that you need to involve more than just your sense of sight when you’re picturing your dream life! Use all of your senses to create a maximally vivid picture. What sounds can you hear? What does the environment smell like? If you touch objects or a person, what do they feel like under your hands?
The more sensory experiences you invoke, the more potent your manifestation attempt will be. It’s better to have a succinct, rich visualization that’s full of sensory data than it is to have a long-winded visualization that chronicles days rather than just one amazing moment.
4. Questioning Your Beliefs
Whenever you find yourself engaging in negative self-talk or believing that you just can’t do something, ask yourself where this message came from. You will eventually be able to trace it back to an event from your past. This is often an experience you had as a child. Highlighting its birthplace helps you to judge the belief from a more objective standpoint.
For example, a message that you’re “no good at anything creative” is robbed of so much of its power when you realize that it’s simply the voice of an ignorant, jealous teacher you had when you were young.
Meanwhile, the message that you’re not lovable may come from a partner whose cruel voice you wish you reject. Now that you know it, you can find ways to get rid of it for good.
5. Connecting With An Object
If you find an object to represent the reality you want to manifest, you can use it in so many ways. For example, if you’re looking to enhance your career, you can take that object in your pocket to a job interview, and touch it before you go in so that you reconnect with your confidence and determination. You can also hold the representative object during visualizations. Some people like to find crystals that are connected with their manifestation (e.g. rose quartz for love), while others like stones, shells, coins, or pieces of jewelry.
However, your heart will lead you towards the right object—trust its pull when you feel it.
This is a manifestation technique you may already have tried, but if not then it’s time to start! The basic technique just involves getting a board (or clearing a wall space) and using it to display pictures and words that encapsulate what you want to manifest. So, for example, if you want to attract a new love into your life, you might cut out some magazine images of happy couples, locations you’d like to visit, the food you’d eat together, and words that strike a chord with you.
Be creative—you can also include your drawings written phrases or even things you find in nature! Be sure to place your dream board in a prominent location where you’ll see it multiple times a day.
7. Turning Negatives Into Positives
As you’re well aware, being able to be positive is a cornerstone of using the Law of Attraction to its full potential. There are lots of things you can do to facilitate this. The simplest is probably to keep a gratitude journal. In this, you write down three things that make you feel grateful every day and two good things you can draw from difficult or challenging experiences you’ve had. This process both connects you with your happiness and also makes you see that everything can teach us something, even when the initial experience is a painful one.
8. Using A Focus Wheel
A focus wheel is a simple but highly recommended way to shift your focus to more positive thoughts and attitudes when it comes to the things you want to attract. Grab a piece of paper, draw a small circle in the center, and write what you want; say, financial freedom, a loving partner, your own business, or good health. Next, write down a positive belief you have about the subject, placing this belief around the edge of the central circle. So, with the goal of starting a new business, for example, you might write the positive belief “I have a great education in how to plan a business.”
Keep going, writing as many positive beliefs as you can find, always around the circle. Eventually, your page will be full of statements that support your belief in the reality you want to manifest. If you like, add this focus wheel to your dream board. Or, just pin it to your fridge or front door to keep you connected with its truth.
9. Living “As If”
Finally, instead of living as though you’re currently waiting for the life you desire, start immediately living as though that reality is already yours! Walk with the posture you’d have if you achieved that career goal. Buy the furniture you’d get if you found that dream partner. Or, rejuvenate your wardrobe so it’s stocked with the clothes you’ll be wearing when you’re fitter and healthier.
These types of actions send out powerful signals to the Universe, and (as a bonus) they keep you in a great mood!
How And Why Does The Law Of Attraction Work?
Just as the “why” of the law of gravity is complex and difficult to understand the “why” of the Law of Attraction is also somewhat complicated. Gravity is still a bit of a mystery to scientists. We understand that gravity prevents us and everything else on Earth from floating away, but the exact “why” is an intricate matter. The Law of Attraction is similar. As with all the laws of our universe, we understand that these laws do work, even though we don’t necessarily understand how to define them. Knowing and thinking that you can do something will motivate you to do it. It’s like the old good “fake it till you make it.” So, how does the Law of Attraction work in this context? If you think positive, you will get a positive outcome, and vice versa. It’s synonymous with “you are what you think.”
Your Relationship To The Universe
To understand the Law of Attraction, tune in to your perception of your relationship with the universe. In other words, it’s important to examine how you feel about the way the universe interacts with you. Do you believe you can influence your surroundings so things happen for you? Or do you believe things happen to you? In psychology, this perspective is called, “Internal vs. External Locus of Control.” Some people believe that they are a product of everything that has happened to them. This is called an external locus of control because these people believe they are not in control of their lives. The goal of therapy is for patients to realize that they have an internal locus of control. The Law of Attraction works the same way.
The truth is, your thoughts and feelings do affect the events that take place around you. A shift in your perspective and understanding of the truth about your relationship to the universe can begin to attract better things into your life.
