“I hope there is no traffic today and I reach office on time.” Sounds familiar? A lot of us tend to have such thoughts before leaving for work but on the contrary, we find traffic on the way and end up getting late. We are also partly to blame for this because we were thinking negatively and what we got was also something negative. This happens often that what we dread the most turns out to be true. For instance, we think what if it doesn’t happen the way I want or what if I don’t do well in my exam. If our thoughts are negative, they tend to produce negative results. This in no way means that we shouldn’t anticipate the future but instead of just concentrating on the negative aspect, we should also try to focus on the positive. So, instead of thinking what if I don’t do well in my job interview, you should think about what if it goes well and what if it doesn’t. This way, we aren’t just focusing on the negativity but also taking into account the positive side.
What is this phenomenon called?
You must have come across the term, ‘Law of Attraction’. For example, in the epic Ramayana, Lord Rama used to communicate to his Guru from Lanka and that wasn’t the era of mobile phones. All Lord Rama used to do was to sit by the river side, meditate and think of his Guru. That was how he used to communicate. In other instance, in Mahabharata, weapons used to appear in front of the warriors when they closed their eyes on the battlefield and meditated. Bruce Lee, the famous martial artist and actor had written a letter to himself which stated the goals he had set for himself. He used to read it daily to seek inspiration and work towards fulfilling his goals. The one thing that is common in the above examples is human brain and how brain has the power to attract positive energy from the Universe. On the other hand, if you find yourselves thinking of negative things and show feelings of hatred, enmity, jealousy, anger etc, you will end up attracting negative energy. This is known as the law of attraction.
What is the principle of Law of attraction?
The law of attraction says that you attract whatever you think about, be it positive or negative. “When you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” This is what the law of attraction is all about. According to this principle, whatever is going on in your mind is what you attract and the universe manifests your thoughts and desires. The key to success is having a positive outlook while working towards your goals. The road to success may not be easy and you may encounter roadblocks in between but if you are determined to succeed, you will achieve what you want.
How does this law work?
You should know what you want and be confident in what you desire from the Universe. You should have a very clear picture of what you actually want as you will attract what you think. Create a mental picture of what you want as if you’ve already got it and focus on how it will feel. Most importantly, be thankful for what you already have. Being grateful for what you have will further enhance the positivity and send good vibes out into the universe.
