Law of Attraction

This is a spontaneous post, based upon years of learning that I went through since my childhood.

I am a small town guy who made it to metro city through some “fortunate coincidences”.

If it were not for these fortunate coincidences, I would have been probably ploughing fields in a remote village of India or working in a factory floor.
I always wondered what was the reason for those helpful coincidences?

And I never found the answer until I came across the powerful Law of Attraction.

What is Law of Attraction?

A per wikipedia – The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim “like attracts like” which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.

If you have read The Alchemist, then the Law of Attraction is the central theme of the book. If you haven’t then I would recommend you to get the book and read it.

In short as per Law of Attraction, if we desire something with faith, then we start attracting people, happenings/coincidences, and other resources to move us towards that thing.

It doesn’t matter if it is positive thing or negative thing. Law of Attraction has a lot to do with the subconscious mind, and subconscious mind doesn’t differentiate between positive and negative.

That is the reason many people have success after success and others go through failure after failure in life.

The subconscious manifests what it is fed.

So how do we feed our subconscious mind?

You can do it through repetition – i.e. repatedly feeding and idea to subconscious. There is a doha in Indian literature:

Karat karat abhyas ke, jadmati hot sujaan,
Rasri aawat jawat te, sil par padat nisan.

The meaning of the above doha is that by repeatedly practicing even a fool can become wise. Just like the repeated motions of the rope used to support the bucket for drawing water from a well creates impressions on the stone of the well.
Your subconscious mind is like the stone on the wall of the well. It is hard to create new impressions on it. However this can be done by repatedly giving it the desired suggestions.

The difference between successful and failures is that thes successful people, knowingly or unknowingly, keep giving positive suggestions to their mind regardless of the situation. And the losers do the opposite of it.

As a result both kind of people attract the thoughts and resources to materialize what they are focusing on.

So how can someone harness the power of the subconscious to materialize success in lfie? The short answer is by using the principle of repetition.

There are few techniques like – Autosuggestion or Self-Hypnosis, positive affirmations, creative visualization which aid you in this process. You will see a lot of information about these techniques in upcoming posts.

Going back, this Law of Attraction is responsible for so many coincidences in my life. And these coincidences started very early in my life.

You might ask, how did I know the LOA at early stage of my life? It isn’t possible for a 4 years child to use and apply LOA.

The answer is in young age, a lot of things were manifested in my life by the sheer determination and imagination of my parents, especially my mother.

My mother had visualized a bright future for me and my brother. Though she did not know it was LOA (and she still doesn’t know), the process she used was same.

She used LOA to unknowingly attact the coincidences in our lives to manifest things which even today I cannot believe could happen at that time and in perfect sequence.

So if you are a parent, you can model this behavior. Imagine a perfect future for your children and use the power of repetition, focus, and faith to help manifest that future for your children.

Needless to say this applies to adults as well i.e. when you want to create a brighter future for yourself….

When you want to create success in your life…When you want to create riches in your life….
When you want to create better relationships in your life…When you want to manifest health, happniess , prosperity, tranquility whatever you desire in your life…
