There have been many different & great sources that talk about this Universal Law.
The Law of Attraction refers to when you allow yourself to focus intently on what you desire, it will then manifest for you with grace and ease. What a beautiful concept it is! However, let’s fill in some of the gaps that many sources actually miss out on explaining. You see, this Universal Law is actually only 1 out of 22 principles of the Hermetic philosophy in Western Mystery Tradition – sometimes called the “alternative spiritual tradition”.
It’s unfortunately not enough to have a clear, full sensory image of specifically what you want (and we’ll talk about this next). You also need to make sure that what you desire comes from the right place with the right intention. And then, of course, action also needs to be taken.
So what is the “right” place from whence your desires need to come from? It’s from your ‘Higher Self’, or perhaps we could refer to is as your soul. The Law of Attraction actually states this. So this is not just about manifesting on a material level, but rather manifesting what we want from a place where we are completely entitled and deserving of receiving what we want. You were born entitled to receive your hearts desires by the way, simple as that!
Marianne Williamson said it perfectly: “We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.”
Of course you can have material things too if they make you truly happy, because what is also important about the Law of Attraction is the intention behind why you want it.
Here is a very important secret about this Law that is hardly ever mentioned…
…if we focus on attracting “things” that are not truly aligned with our soul, or we don’t spend any thought on the intention/higher purpose of why we want it, we can easily be disillusioned and put off temporarily from our path.
For instance, you may want to focus on attracting a million dollars, however, you may not know exactly what you are going to do with the money or the true intent behind why you want it. Let’s say for this example that you take a great deal of action (because in this instance more action is needed because the intent is not clear) and you do receive the money. Great! However, what you first thought was attractive to you will invariably become more of a problem because you will spend it quickly and blow it all on “stuff” that just doesn’t fulfill you. The example is often given of poor people who win the lottery but end up poor again in a very short time.
So go ahead and focus specifically on what you want, but you must also understand why you want it, how it will make you feel and finally, who will you become in the achievement of your manifestations.
