Living an Abundant Life: How to Use the Law of Attraction to Create More of What You Want
You’ve probably heard the phrase “Like attracts like”, this stems from the philosophy around the universal Law of Attraction - manifestation. In this article, you will discover how to manifest more abundantly into your everyday life by making adjustments to your environment and the power of thinking; plus tips to set up an altar for a sacred space in your home to elevate your practice.
The Law of Attraction In simple terms, The Law of Attraction states that what you put out into the world comes back to you, whether it’s positive or negative. If you focus on your desires and imagine them coming true, then positive energy will flow in your direction while aligning for your most optimal outcome. It is all about setting clear intentions and focusing on your desired outcome than leaving the rest up to the Universe to deliver to you. Similar to how we devote ourselves to an hour of intentional movement, like vinyasa yoga, we believe that with each breath and stretch we become more attuned and confident in our day ahead. Learning how to use the Law of Attraction can be an incredibly powerful and beneficial experience for anyone who puts in the time to master it.
Setting up a Sacred Space or Altar
It can be helpful to set up a sacred space or alter in your home that aligns with your desires, where you can invite, meditate, and appreciate all the abundance that your life offers. Remember, creating a space that is unique to you and your energy is key - there is no wrong way to do it! To begin, choose a tabletop, room, or area of your home that does not get too much traffic and where you feel comfortable. Whether you make a small or large space, keep your space dedicated to its purpose. Next, gather and display any objects that have meaning to you such as symbols, books, florals, photos, or crystals. As with anything related to spirituality, everyone has unique tastes so it is important that you choose what feels right to you. Be sure to arrange all of the objects in such a way as they are pleasing and place protective boundaries, keep your space clear and clean of clutter. This sacred space will be your new comfortable go-to for meditation and practice.
Start Manifesting Manifestation is a concept with many interpretations, but it generally means bringing what you want into your life. Manifestation emphasizes that you use visualizing and internal belief to call in all that you desire in life. The law of attraction says that like attracts like—meaning if you are thinking positively, then positive things will happen to you. To use this law effectively, make sure your thoughts are in line with what you would actually like to have to happen. Spend time in your sacred space each day focusing on raising your vibration and what you would like to manifest:
Ask for what you want
Believe that you can have it
Express gratitude when you receive it
Choose Your Dream Life We all have a choice in what life we want. In our heads, we have an ideal version of ourselves and life that we would love to live. But when you don't believe that it is possible or that you deserve it, you settle for less than your dreams. There is no reason why you should live a life where you are unfulfilled and unhappy on any level. The first step to living a more abundant life is to start believing that it is possible. Take some time out of your day (even if only five minutes) every day to imagine what this new life looks like and how good you feel about it. Visualize in detail as if you were there right now, feeling how this better version of yourself lives each day. If imagining just five minutes feels overwhelming then start with one or two minutes.
Affirmations are a powerful tool to keep your goals top of mind and help rear the focus on your desires. Try these!
The universe supports everything I desire and is working in my favor.
Every moment of my life I am creating my own reality.
With every conscious thought, I am creating my present and future.
Whatever I can imagine in my mind’s eye is achievable.
I am taking action on a plan to get what I desire.
By using the Law of Attraction you can become attuned to your ability to author your own life and manifest! And as with any other skill, the need to practice it regularly to serve optimal results is how you will notice the progression. Are you ready to attract your dream house, car, lover, or vacation? Happy manifesting!
