The Law of Attraction is a theory commonly associated with New Thought and New Age philosophy. The Law of Attraction is not a new concept. Even Buddha said that ‘All that we are is the result of what we have thought.’
Again in the New Testament of the Bible, Jesus has said ‘It is done to you as you believe…’ This law hypothesizes that one should by no means dwell on the negative, as the metaphysical principle of life is embodied in the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction says that all the images of the mind and the feelings are connected to thoughts which later manifest as reality. In other words, everything in our life has been attracted to us through our mind. The Law of Attraction is also known as the Law of Magnetism, the Power of Thought and Success Consciousness.
The Law of Attraction is the most powerful force and an important law in the Universe. The simplest definition for the Law of Attraction is ‘like attracts like.’ In other words, you get what you think. The Law of Attraction is also fun because we are always waiting and watching for our desires to manifest.
And this is what prayer is all about. In fact anything asked in prayer with a spirit of faith and belief is likely to be achieved. This is the Law of Attraction in action.
The Law of Attraction is a doubled-edged sword because it can bring either success or failure. But Prayer is a positive tool. Prayer gives the person what he asks. When you truly believe in prayer and meditation and ask for specific things, it will be given in response. It is a great tool that connects us to the Universe. The Universe gives a person more of what he is asking for.
The Law of Attraction is true for everyone. This Law is universal because it does not care who you are or what religious belief you subscribe to. It is as true and universal as the Law of Gravity.
In the book of Proverbs in the Bible, verse 7 of chapter 23 says, ‘As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.’ The writer goes one step further in this matter. It is commonly assumed that we think with our minds. But, according to this proverb it is from our hearts that we do our thinking and believing and not from our minds.
The Law of Attraction is not only positive thinking but also faith, confidence and conviction. Controlling the thought processes is the basic idea of many religious practices. In Christianity, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism the ultimate goal is focusing the thoughts towards spiritual ideals.
The Law of Attraction says that if a person focuses on positive things, they will attract good things into their life. If they focus on negative things then they are likely to perpetuate difficulty.
This is the root of the Law. As human beings we like to focus our thoughts on good things. That is why we believe in prayers and miracles. The best way to pray effectively is to pray with an affirmative attitude. A powerful prayer is one of gratitude which again is positive thought. Thoughts and prayers are governed by the Law of Attraction.
To believe that everything works for our highest good, we need to trust in the Universal Law of Attraction and Prayer which works through us and uses our experiences to expand our consciousness. Let us therefore use the Law of Attraction and prayer to make the world a more joyful and loving place to live.
