T is for Thoughts | Positive & Inspired Living A to Z’
Do you feel that your thoughts come in response to what is happening around you, and what you observe? I certainly used to feel so. But then I came across a book called The Secret. It introduced (to me) a concept called as Law of Attraction, which stated that we attract what we think. This would mean that what we observe in our surroundings is actually in response to what we are thinking, and not the other way round.
For example, if we are thinking about buying a certain type of car, we will start seeing this car almost everywhere we go. In the same way, if we are thinking about having a baby, we’ll notice pregnant women and babies around us a lot more. Are these coincidences or projections of our own thoughts?
The examples that I gave above are pretty basic. Nonetheless, if the law of attraction is indeed at work, then the physical reality in which we live is like a mirror designed to become the exact reflection of the thoughts that we have. When we think of it like this, we have more power than we could possibly imagine. By controlling our thoughts, we can control our reality.
Personally, I do believe in the Law of Attraction. That doesn’t mean that I have mastered it in any way, shape, or form. I haven’t ever consciously tried to attract positive things by thinking about it. Although when I am overcome with anxiety and worry about something, reminding myself about the law of attraction, scares me enough to make me look at the possible positive outcomes. Yes, I realize this is not the ideal application of the law, but this does help me keep negative thoughts at bay.
I would love to hear from you. Do you believe in the Law of Attraction? Has it worked for you? Or do you use it to ward off negative thoughts like me?
