Law of Attraction - A Basic Understanding

by Antonio Thornton

The Law of Attraction truly cannot be defined by any single definition. It has to do with energy and a force that's so powerful and so mystifying that words wouldn't do it justice.

Some definitions refer to the law of attraction as karma or the golden rule. You may have heard people say, "You get what you give…" "What goes around, comes around…" "Karma"; "do unto others" and a host of others.

They're all right.

However, when I'm asked, "What is the Law of Attraction?" I like to summarize it in two 3-word phrases: "Like Attracts Like" and "Thoughts Become Things."

Like Attracts Like

Everything in the universe is composed of energy. If you were to take a peek inside your body, you'd see that you're made up of organs. With magnification, you'll see that your organs are made up of tissues. With even more magnification, you'd see that your tissues are made of cells; your cells are made of molecules; and your molecules are made of atoms. You may remember this from science class.

These atoms are made of even smaller "components" called electrons, neutrons, and protons. Here's where science class got a little fuzzy for me. At the time I learned this, we were taught that the electrons, protons and neutrons were the smallest units of matter and this is where things stopped. What they didn't tell us is that these "units of matter" are made of energy. More accurately stated, they ARE energy.

So in short, everything is made of energy. The computer you're using, or the newspaper you're reading this in…everything. And what's amazing is that these different energies have their own vibrational resonance. For this illustration, we'll call vibrational resonance "frequency" – just like a radio station frequency.

So as this energy is emitting its frequency, there are other energies that are on the same frequency and they tend to draw towards one another.

If you were to tune your radio to 101.9 you would only be able to hear what's on the 101.9 frequency, which is being emitted from the 101.9 radio tower. It's the same with energy.

Have you ever sat next to someone and you "just didn't feel right"? There may have been nothing "wrong" with the person, but for some reason you just felt uncomfortable. It was because at that time, your energy was on a "different frequency" as the person sitting next to you. Your energies clashed and it made you feel uncomfortable.

You will attract to you what you embody or what you are "like," in other words. If you're gloomy, you'll attract gloomy people. And if you're happy and cheerful, you'll attract happy, cheerful people (or at least, they'll become happy and cheerful because of YOU).

If you feel broke, you'll attract more of being "broke," because it's a match to you, to your energy. And if you feel prosperous, you will attract situations to help you be prosperous.

Thoughts Become Things

The other thing about the Law Of Attraction is that thoughts really do become things.

This can also be summed up more scientifically by the expression, "Energy is neither created, nor destroyed." So rephrasing the aforementioned statement, "If you put a loving, a caring energy into the universe, that same energy will be returned to you."

So the thoughts (energy) you put out will be returned to you (or "created" in your reality).

Everything starts as a thought. That computer you're reading this on originated, at its essence, as the thought of Konrad Zuse, who invented the very first working programmable computer in 1941. Others, like Steve Jobs, believed computers could be accessible to anyone in their homes. And Zuse and Jobs began to manifest those realities for themselves before most thought they were "possible."

LOA is at the essence of everything that exists today. When you think of something you want AND you believe it can come, you will attract it to you. It will ultimately become your reality.

Watch a child learning to walk and it's amazing. No matter how many times they fall down, they hop back up because they instinctively know that eventually they'll be able to walk. They don't have to worry what others think.

Allowing versus Receiving
Rather than "allowing" Spirit to do something great in our lives - being in control of certain aspects of the manifestation - why not just "receive" of Spirit the thing we desire. Why take control of it?
