Scientific Law: A Law of Attraction. By Rabia Ather
05 Apr 2010
It’s not a magnetic law of attraction. It’s more related to human life. It is one of the better known universal laws. The theory behind the Law of Attraction is that we create our own realities. We attract things we want and we also attract things we don't want. We attract the people in our lives, the stuff in our home and the money in our bank accounts through our thoughts and feelings.
The phrase Law of Attraction, used widely by new thought writers, refers to the idea that thoughts influence chance. The Law of Attraction argues that thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) can affect things outside the head, not just through motivation, but by other means. The Law of Attraction says that which is like unto itself is drawn. Essentially, "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too.
Although the theory behind the Law of Attraction is very simple, putting it into practice on a conscious level takes work. Negative and limiting belief systems are buried deep inside us. Changing or ridding yourself of ideas and old habits that defeat you at every turn can be done. Are you up to the challenge? It consists of three steps
1. Ask - You must know what you want. I mean, really know what you want. The universe can't deliver without first knowing what it is that you want to have manifested into your life
2. Believe - You need to truly believe that what you are asking for will become yours. Doubts need to be pushed away. The idea that failure is a possibility will mess up the delivery.
3. Receive - It is important that you become an active player in reaching your goals. When opportunity comes your way you must not hesitate. Grab the brass ring when it appears.
Practical application of this law is our prayers. The concept of Dua (Prayer) in Islam and Christianity is based on this law. As it states that the universe gives you whatever you want but we as a Muslim or Christians believe that Allah (God) will give us whatever we want, but Allah (God) knows better about the best time to give us that; but at the same time this law states that negative thoughts can also come true. Yes, they can that’s why it is said that THINK POSITIVE because our thoughts are what we want If we continuously think negative than definitely bad things will happen. Islam gives the concept of Hope which means to think positive. “The Power of Positive Thinking” by “Norman Vincent Peale” is an excellent book for making thoughts positive and to bring positivity in life. Having positive thinking skills and an affirmative action plan is a proven way of accomplishing goals. Truly successful positive people understand that both of these things are essential to their success. Affirmative thoughts believe that the desirable outcome has already occurred.
The principles of the law of attraction have also been interpreted in the realm of medicine and illness. A doctor always asks his patient to be positive to think that he will recover very soon, in this way the patient doesn’t lose hope and creates a will-power to fight with the disease. It’s very effective because when a person creates will-power then he works hard to get his desire.
But it has a drawback as well because people start thinking about everything they want or they like and continuous thinking and interest leads you towards day dreaming as well. It’s good to apply this law in your life but don’t let your sub-conscious part to take over the conscious part of your mind.
