The Flaw With The Law Of Attraction

Let me start off by saying that the law of attraction (LOA) is VERY real. It is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. It is not the law of attraction that is flawed, instead, it is our understanding of the law of attraction that is flawed.

But fear not! I am here to provide some much-needed clarity!

What Is the Law of Attraction?

The LOA is one of the better known universal laws. The universal laws are laws that create your experiences and life here on earth. The LOA is the magnetic power of the Universe that draws similar energies together. (Like attracts like.) By focusing (and believing) on positive or negative thoughts, a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.

The LOA is so powerful AND empowering because it shows us that we, you and I, are in control of the reality we live. You and I, are powerful co-creators of our life. We’re not just sitting back and letting life happen to us. We are here, doing our part and co-creating with the powerful universe, the life we WANT to actually live. If there’s something you’re not happy with, hear this and hear it loudly: YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! You may not 100% believe it yet, but you will. You are a POWERFUL being that can use the power of her mind, to change your outside world. But the outside world only changes when our internal world changes FIRST.

As my mentor and hero is known for saying:

You‘ll See It When You Believe It- Wayne Dyer.

First, you have to believe “it”- whatever it is you desire- and then you will see it in your reality.

And that’s where the “flaw” of our understanding of the law of attraction comes in.

How many of you feel like you’re doing everything right? For instance, you’re saying all of the affirmations, writing out the gratitude lists, visualizing your desired outcome, saying all the right words, and acting as if, and yet, nothing is happening. Nada. Zilch.

You’re Doing Every Manifesting Technique, And Still, Nothing Is Happening

Here’s the deal. Our vibration is SUPER magnetic! Our vibration is what attracts everything that is happening in our life right now. But it is our BELIEF system that determines the kind of thoughts that we have, and what we allow into our lives.

I personally believe that your thoughts are based on your beliefs. The thoughts that you think, come from the belief system ingrained in you.

It goes like this:

  • Beliefs
  • Thoughts
  • Feelings
  • Vibration
  • Manifestation

What you believe to be true about yourself, shapes the kind of thoughts you have. The kind of thoughts you have, causes you to feel a certain way. The way you feel, sends out a vibration. The vibration you send out, attracts a manifestation that matches that vibration.

Get it?

Application in real life

Let’s use some real-life examples now. Let’s say that you want to attract a loving and loyal partner. You’re visualizing him/her. You’ve made a vision board of all things love and marriage. You’re saying your affirmations day in and day out. But, let’s say you have a belief that you are not good enough, that you are not worthy of love, that there are no good people left out there, that everyone out there can find true love but not you. That belief will counter all of your manifesting ju-ju, because the vibration of that belief is STRONGER than the vibration of the LOA tools and techniques that you’re doing.

The LOA is still working for you, but attracting that relationship becomes much harder because you’re in a constant tug of war of attracting and repelling. You’re attracting when you take the time to practice your LOA techniques, but you’re repelling during all the other hours of the day when you’re not CONSCIOUSLY focused on what you want.

If you’re doing all the manifesting stuff right, and what you want is still not showing up, it’s because you have a belief(s) that is repelling your attractions.

Whew. That was a bummer huh? But the good news is, that by having this understanding of the power of your belief system, you can now use your favorite healing tools to uncover the limiting belief, heal it, and get your manifesting mojo back on track! Yay! I hope this post has served you and helps you in understand the connection between the law of attraction and your belief system =)

Happy manifesting!
