How many times have you heard the phrase “Like attracts like”? I guess a lot!
But have you ever considered that this magic little phrase could be the reason that your life looks the way it does?
Furthermore, has the idea of using this magic truth to shape your life exactly the way you want it ever crossed your mind?
I can most certainly tell you that it had never crossed mine! But luckily, situations in my life forced me to look for alternatives and it was then that I came across this magical law. It has changed my life completely ever since!
In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about this powerful Universal Lawof Attraction.
How it works, how it affects your daily life (whether you realize it or not) and most importantly how to use it to shape your life exactly the way you want it!
But enough said…
Let’s start our journey!
Like Attracts Like: The Science Behind This Powerful Law
Everything in this Universe is made of energy!
Every particle of energy has its own unique frequency! A chair is made of energy as a dog is made of it, too! They simply have different frequencies that make them look different!
In reality, nothing is different! We are all the same! Nothing is separated in the Universe and we all are part of a whole! We are connected!
Every feeling or thought has also its own frequency and is part of this Universe, too.
Now, think of yourself as a powerful magnet. Every thought you have in your mind produces a feeling, sometimes positive and sometimes negative. So, like a transmitter, you automatically send this positive/negative energy in the Universe, in the form of vibrations.
The Universe in return, responds to these vibrations sending you back exactly what you put out there.
Every positive or negative event, situation or person that you come across every day is not just happening to you…
It’s the Universal response to the energy that YOU put out there!
What took me long to realize is that “like attracts like” works constantly, 24/7! It never takes a break!
We are ALWAYS vibrating something and at the same time, we are magnets attracting similar vibrations, whether we realize it or not.
The Law of Attraction never pauses!
It’s like gravity! Every time you jump off a building you will fall on the ground! The same happens with the Law of Attraction.
Every thought/feeling has its own frequency and its vibrations are being sent to the Universe, every time!
I hope that by this point, you have realized that YOU and only YOU can create your life and that you have the most powerful tool to make this happen: The Universal Law of Attraction “Like Attracts Like”!
Like Attracts Like: How It Affects Your Daily Life
Taking a look around your daily life you can clearly see what you’ve been attracting so far!
But this can easily change now that you’ve learned how your life is shaped!
You already know that every thought produces a feeling, whether it’s positive or negative.
And every feeling is a request to the Universe. This simply means that you cannot receive positive situations/feelings/people/circumstances etc. in your life based on negative feelings and vice versa.
You are always vibrating something and you create your current reality based on the thoughts/feelings that you put out there.
So, one of the most important things to have in mind is to always monitor your feelings.
Ask yourself frequently: “How do I feel right now?”
If the answer is positive, good, stay on this road. But if it’s negative, alter your feelings and ultimately your vibration by changing your thoughts.
Your thoughts become things and you are always in a state of creation. You can’t take a break from it!
In order to create what you want, it is absolutely necessary to know exactly what it is you want!
So, the first step towards getting what you desire is to define what you want!
Stay focused on your desire and make sure your feelings/thoughts are aligned with it.
Everything is a part of the same Universe and we are all connected with the same energy!
Anything you want, a career, a dream car, a dream house, your perfect soulmate… all of them have their own frequency.
You belong to the same Universe like everything else and the only thing you need to do to achieve what you want is to align your frequency with the frequency of what you want.
Your feelings define your frequency levels. Your emotions are the key to the creation of your desire, so you must practice them as much as possible.
And if you wonder how to magnify your feelings, here’s the answer:
Practice feeling the emotions you will have once you’ve achieved your goal or have what you wanted.
“How would I feel once I have achieved/earned/bought…..?”
If your desire is a purchase: “How would it look like? Smell like? Feel like? How would I feel owning it? Using it?”
If your desire is about achieving a goal: “How would I feel having achieved it? How would I spend my day? Who would I spend it with?”
The more you think and talk about your goals the faster you will manifest them into your life!
Try to keep the emotions as vivid as possible! Throughout this whole procedure, you are sending a very clear message to the Universe.
And the Universe can’t help but reply back to you!
As Jack Canfield (Motivational Speaker and co-author of “Chicken soup for the Soul” series) writes:
“Maintain a positive expectancy, having certainty knowing that you’ve put your future in the hands of powers that are greater than yours”.
Nothing is too big or too difficult for the Law of Attraction.
You have to relax and let the Universe do the rest!
You just need to understand your role in the whole procedure.
Expect nothing else but the creation of your desire. Be absolutely sure that what you want will happen and take the action that is needed towards your goal.
By taking the action you affirm that you actually believe that you are going to achieve your goal. And your strong belief is exactly the reason why you will ultimately manifest it!
How To Become A Vibrational Match For What You Want
In many cases, you will catch yourself having negative thoughts and feelings.
At this point, you must remember that at this exact moment you are sending a negative vibration to the Universe.
Simply stated, this means that your negative energy is blocking the positive and you will probably face negative or unpleasant situations instead of the ones you have been waiting for.
What you have to do is to alter your thoughts and ultimately your feelings. This is not always easy to do, but if you really want to consciously create your own life then you will have to practice some of the techniques below to help you alter your negative thoughts/feelings and maintain your positive energy at high levels.
One of the most guaranteed methods to always feel good is being grateful for what you already have.
Gratitude is the most powerful feeling that can help us attract anything we desire in our life, but we often seem to forget to be grateful even for the simplest things.
We seem to focus on what’s wrong instead of being happy and grateful for what’s right.
Being in a state of gratitude means that you feel love for what you already have and experience in your life and that attracts more things to love in your life, cause like attracts like!
It doesn’t matter how your life looks right now. Being one with the Universe means that you have the ability to make your life better, shaping it using love and gratitude for what you already have and everything you are about to receive.
Being grateful in advance for what you are about to receive confirms to the Universe your belief that what you want is already yours. And being absolutely sure for it qualifies you to receive it!
Although gratitude doesn’t take much time, it can transform your life completely in ways you could never think of!
There are simple exercises of gratitude you can practice every day that can help you raise your vibration and positive energy and attract more reasons to be grateful for in your life.
#1. Write a List of 10 Things You Are Grateful For
One of the most important exercises but yet, very effective is to start your day by writing a list of 10 things you are grateful for!
Even if you are not in the state you want to be or your life seems to disappoint you, think of 10 things that you actually grateful for!
Being healthy and alive could be one of them!
Having functional organs to see, smell, touch, hear can also be a reason to be grateful for!
Having functional legs to walk, run, dance and arms, hands to perform any task you want is definitely a reason to be grateful! Don’t take anything for granted! There are people that are deprived of these privileges.
You could be grateful for a specific person in your life (or more than one), a child, a soulmate, a friend, a parent, a brother, a sister.
You could be grateful for the health of that person.
Do you have a car, a motorbike, a motorcycle? Are you grateful for having it to help you move around? No matter its condition, you have it and it serves you. Things could be different!
