The law of attraction can shift your entire life, only if you grasp how it works and absolutely believe in it. The law of attraction can essentially be interpreted as, “you attract what you think.” You target things you desire the most, rather than the stuff or baggage that you don’t care for. For instance, if things aren’t going great financially, you should focus on the positive, and be grateful for having a roof over your head, and food in the fridge. The Universe will reward you and make things better. Though instead, most people stress over never having enough money. Those thoughts manifest, and the Universe will offer you more monetary complications.
I came across a book called “The Secret” written by Rhonda Byrne around 4 years ago, outside my school. The cover was very old-timey, I picked it up thinking it was going to be a book about pirates or something, only to find out that my biggest icons practiced the law of attraction. Big Sean, Jim Carrey, everywhere from comedians, to rappers, to even Nobel Prize-winning Albert Einstein. It was hard for me not to be curious, so I went home that day and decided to do more research on it.
Although a lot of people believe in the Law of Attraction, there is really no scientific evidence to support it, and it has earned the title of being a pseudoscience, which can translate to a series of theories, beliefs, or practices that are considered scientific, but have been disproved because it can’t be tested. How could I be fooled into believing in a law that is under the same category as Bigfoot or El Chupacabra?
I decided that changing my lifestyle and trying to even just have more positive thoughts never hurt anybody. I would wake up and give thanks for everything I have, health, a loving family, free education, etc. I started noticing small changes in my life, which at the time I mistook for bits of luck. Finding money on the floor, having someone pay for my drink at Starbucks, it was all happening because I was manifesting my positive thoughts. After reading that the Law of Attraction was a pseudoscience, it bummed me out. It had just as much proof of being real as the Flat Earth Theory does. I stopped reading books on the LOA, stopped giving thanks, and even got to the point, where I started letting my temper and head flood with negative thoughts. I realized that my life was obviously better before. I decided that even if it wasn’t scientifically proven, and not accepted by most, did it really hurt me to dedicate 15 minutes to practicing positive thoughts and affirmations? No, of course not.
You cannot see the Law of Gravity, but it affects the whole world every day, and the LOA is a law, just like the Law of Gravity. Understanding the concept of the Law of Attraction is something that will take effort and patience in your part. I practice the LOA and will continue to practice it by keeping up with my vision board, avoiding the word “no,” being kind to everyone that I come by, so that in the future, I will only have positive situations happen to me, and to manifest everything that I aspire to have and be.Tags: #ThisIBelieve Health Sciences High and Middle College
