We present the top five misconceptions people have about the law of attraction, using the law of attraction and the way the law of attraction works.
Here are the Top 5 Misconceptions About the Law of Attraction.
Misconception number 1 – The LOA is a new concept.
It has been said that nothing new is ever really created – and, in essence, that is a very true statement. The law of attraction is not a new concept because it has always existed in one way or another.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” ~ Buddha.
It may not have always been called the law of attraction, but the principles have always existed. From Wallace Wattles who wrote the book “The Science of Getting Rich” in 1910 to Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” in 1937, people have been writing about the law of attraction for many, many years.
Misconception number 2 – The LOA only works for some people.
One of the biggest misconceptions about the law of attraction is the fact that it only works for some people.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is the law of attraction is always on – whether you realize it or not.
Everything in your life is a result of your thoughts, feelings, and desires. If you are focusing on the problems, the chaos and the negativity, then that is what comes back into your energetic field.
Misconception number 3 – You have to focus intently on your desire to manifest it.
While this is partially true, there comes a time when you have to have a little faith and let your desire go to deliver your intention.
If you constantly fret on whether or not your desire or wish will come true, then you are really undoing the work. **The best rule of thumb is to focus on your desire, infuse it with emotional energy, and then let it go
. Faith will do the rest.**
Misconception number 4 – The LOA is magic.
The LOA is not magic because you can’t really make things appear out of thin air, no matter what you might have seen in the movies.
It does take a little effort to see results. If all you had to do were to think positivity and wave a magic wand, the world would be a pretty scary place.
The truth is that is not how the LOA works. What it does do, is work with your energy – and you have to accept responsibility for the energy you put out.
For example, if you are looking for a job, it can line up the right people and the right opportunities for you. If you are looking for a date, it can bring you someone that has the same kind of energy you might be focusing on.
You have to leave your house to find people. LOA is not magic, because you always have to follow through with some action.
Misconception number 5 – All you have to do is visualize.
This is probably the biggest misconception of all because the public was lead to believe that all that was required to make the LOA work, was visualization.
While that’s certainly a big part of how LOA works, there are other steps you need to take. It’s important to visualize, but it’s also important to change your thoughts and beliefs. You can do this by repeating affirmations, meditating or even using hypnosis or other similar tools.
The moment you change your thoughts you change your vibration, and it is those vibrations that bring you your desires.
Whatever you believe, there is one universal truth that always stands – the fact that you are already experiencing the law of attraction in your life. All you really have to do is look around at your environment to see how the law of attraction is working in your life and you will get a very clear picture.
In other words, you attract into your life anything you focus on.
- If you tend to focus on the problems, you are probably going to get more problems.
- If you focus on the opportunities, you will, of course, get more opportunities.
Change your thoughts, and you can literally change your life. It’s really very simple.
