Law Of Attraction

My Experiences Of The Law Of Attraction

May 5, 2019

I’ve only recently got into the Law of Attraction. I’ve been hearing the phrase for a while, but when I stumbled across videos on it on YouTube and found out a little more I began to sit up and pay attention. However, whether you’ve heard about it or not, we all inadvertently use the Law of Attraction throughout our lives. So here’s a quick introduction to the concept, along with my experiences of the Law of Attraction.

What is the Law of Attraction?

Simply put, the Law of Attraction means that what you think, you become. Our thoughts, whatever we focus on, will become our reality. For example, if you think about doom and gloom and everything that’s going wrong in your life, you tend to remain in that rut. But if you think positive thoughts, this can manifest itself into your reality.

However, it’s not as simple about “think about something and it will happen”. It’s more the way we think about something. For example, if we attach an anxiety to a desire, or subconsciously believe that it’s never going to happen, it can push our desire away. And sometimes it’s when we let go of and detach from a desire that it ends up happening. So basically, it can be tricky to manifest things to begin with, however with practice LoA YouTubers have got to the point where they can now manifest great things into their life effortlessly. I will do other posts on the Law of Attraction at some point, but for now I’m just going to talk about my experiences.

My Experiences of the Law of Attraction

When I was around 15, I read about something called “cosmic ordering” in a magazine. It was basically where you write down a list of things you want, read them out to the Universe, and they happen. My list included things like gaining half a stone, going up a cup size, and making some cool new friends. I ended up forgetting about the list, but bar a boyfriend, when I discovered it later on I realised that most of those things had ended up happening in the next 6 months or so.

At university, I liked a guy called Liam, who was, long story short, not interested. One of my friends ended up sleeping with him then telling him I liked him and things got messy for a while. Anyway, one night at the Student Union someone I thought was one of my closest friends kissed him in front of me, and I was upset. The next day, I realised I was fed up with letting this not-actually-that-great guy affect my moods, so I decided to give up on agonising over the situation, go on nights out, talk to people, and eventually I’d get with someone else and get over it. I thought this would take a few months, but as soon as I’d set the intention, the next time I went out I ended up pulling this hot security guard from my work. I then looked over and saw- guess who? Liam. And realised I no longer cared.

At the end of last year, for the first time in a long time, I met someone I actually liked and could see a future with. However, then told me he wasn’t looking for anything serious. I figured I’d screened him out early, and could keep him around on a platonic level and see if he had any attractive friends. Instead, he ended up getting into a relationship with someone else shortly afterwards, and in my opinion, he should have picked me. In frustration, I went home and lit a yellow candle. I thought that perhaps I’d been picking weak men, and that’s why things hadn’t been working out in my favour. I thought about the kind of guy I would be compatible with. I thought perhaps a conservative, “trad”-type guy who liked feminine women. I thought perhaps someone like one particular political activist (not Tommy Robinson). It wasn’t a longing feeling, more a passing positive thought that that’s the kind of person I would be compatible with. A couple of months later, I got talking to a guy at a political comedy event. It transpired we had previously been matchmade by this “trad” matchmaker a year ago, and he has worked with most conservative political personalities, including the one I had visualised previously.

When I first started out in my digital marketing career, I did an internship at a small company fairly close to home. When I started my first proper job in London, they contacted me offering me a job there. I preferred the role itself at the smaller agency, but I’d just passed probation in my new job and I was excited about moving to London. After a few months in a flatshare, I was done with it, but by then the role was no longer available. I always checked their website over the passing years when I was in between jobs, but the timing never quite worked out. When I did an abundance spell at the beginning of this year to attract a new job, I visualised working at that particular company as my ideal role. But I thought that ship had sailed, and I got on with applying for others. Then one day, completely out of the blue, I got a message on LinkedIn from the company director offering me a job there, doing the kind of role I wanted.

The one thing I could never seem to attract was love. But then I thought about how I’d spend the majority of my waking life agonising “WHY AM I STILL SINGLE?” Because I’d been the girl who’d never had a boyfriend throughout school and university, I couldn’t actually visualise myself in a relationship. I’d been putting out the vibration of lack.

    I love Law of Attraction posts, because I honestly love it! I truly believe it works! I do vision boards and lists and positivity and affirmations. They honestly all work! They definitely take some work to get the hang of it, but once you do, it’s amazing. Great post! xxx

        I think it’s something that definitely gets better with time, but you can always improve! x

    This is so interesting! I’ve heard a lot about the law of attraction in passing over the years, but I’ve never looked into it properly. So interesting that your list at 15 pretty much came true. I think I’m going to try this next week with some goals for the end of the year and see how it pans out x

    I enjoyed reading about your experiences with the Law of Attraction. I’ve found that it’s worked for me for smaller things (like getting answers to questions randomly, intending to see a certain type of car, setting an intention to try root better and then “randomly” finding out they sold it in a shop near me), but not so much bigger things. Although one intention was to be in a music video and I was in one for my dance group. (It wasn’t for a professional musical artist but a video my dance group did). One thing it hasn’t worked for is a relationship, so I can relate to your experience! I’m having trouble finding men who I have a mutual attraction with. ( should probably re-phrase that statement! lol). I know some of it is to do with blocks and limiting beliefs etc. Also I’ve been the girl without a boyfriend too, so I can find it hard to “act as if”.

    I like Leeor Alexandra too. She sounds out emails to her list subscribers as well as doing the videos, and I find them helpful. Look forward to reading more posts on LOA, especially if you do any specifically relating to relationships! 🙂
