Law of At(r)Action

Since the release of the movie “The Secret”, there has been considerable attention given to “The Law of Attraction“. Wikipedia describes “The law of Attraction”a metaphysical belief that “like attracts like“, that positive and negative thinking bring about positive and negative physical results, respectively. Although I believe that there is value to the concept of “The Law of Attraction”, I feel that many people may not achieve all that they desire since they may feel that all they need to do is sit in their home and imagine their desired future without taking an action. I feel that you will get more results from using “The Law of Attraction” if you look at is as “The Law of At Action”. You can only build “the life of your dreams” if you take consistent action in acquiring your goal. “The Law of Attraction” works because when you thinking positively about your goals you will have more thoughts about possible action steps to attain your goal.

One essential belief of the “law of attraction” is that you can manifest your desires if you have a clear picture of what you want and you believe that it is already on it’s way. If the word “metaphysical” makes you leary of the “Law of Attraction”, you can choose to look at the “Law of Attraction” pragmatically since you can observe how the “Law of Attraction” from a cause and effect perspective.

It all starts with belief. When you belief that you are worthy of having what you want in life, you will have more positive thoughts about your possibilities and more positive feelings about your actions. With any life goal, you need to believe that you can do it. It is always important to start by reflecting on your belief system as well your specific beliefs about your personal goals.  Belief makes it all possible. If you do not believe that you can do it, you are done! You will not even try to act towards your goal. If you believe you can, you will move forward.

Thoughts and feelings are also vital in creating what you want. Your brain is programmed as the ulitimate pattern recognition device. When you thoughts include a clear image of what you want, your brain starts looking for the patterns that are consistent with the picture of what you want. Feelings are vitally important in this process since our limbic system is highly tied to our memory system and we also pay more attenion to things that we have sting feelings about.
Action are the physical steps that we need to take to accomplish any goal. Once you start taking action, you will notice that you will have different choices that you had before. After each decision and each action, you will have another set of choices that you would not have even know about if you had not taken any action towards your goals. Even if you made a choice that may seem like a “mistake”, you can use the results of this choice as feedback of where you need to proceed to attain your goal.
We can use the idea of a map to conceptualize how the “Law of Attraction” can help us. First we visualize where we want to go. Next, we believe that it is possible to get there. We then use our thoughts and feelings to keep of following the route on the map. Our Actions move us down the road. When we make a “wrong turn”, we acknowledge this feedback and look at our map to see where we are. We then take consistent action and keep moving forward to our designation.

  1. Thanks for putting the Law Of Attraction in a new light. Keep the great work, Jay

  2. I just took a look at your blog again today! So funny how we both chose the same picture…I had no idea. Strange how people can be on the same wave-length. I guess that’s what happens when you are on similar journey’s with different paths. You’re bound to cross at some point!
    Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue

  3. I think you hit the nail on the head on a couple of points. If more people read the phrase Law of Attraction as Law of At – action — they might understand that it often takes some action on our part – there are very few people who can just sit there and visualize something and make it happen. Also I think it’s important that we realize it all depends on how we feel about ourselves – we have to feel worth something in order to make anything happen. How we think and feel about ourselves — is the pallette of color that each of us choose when we are coloring in our own books.
