You may have heard of the ‘Law of Attraction’; you may be aware of the teachings of Abraham Hicks or the book, The Secret, but what does it actually mean and how do we get it to work for us?
What it means is basically “like unto itself is drawn”, in other words a person attracts everything, both good and bad, into their own life by the emotional state of mind and what they focus on.
You judge something to be good when it matches what you are now wanting and you say it is bad when it is not what you are now wanting. So the first important thing is all experience is good – the ‘bad’ offers experience and opportunity to understand better what you really do want. All wanting causes expansion, this is how we and our universe continually evolve and expand; and wanting is thought-form* that has momentum.
The key to attracting what you do want into your reality is to always choose to think of and already feel the joy that you will have when what you want has manifested – you need to feel that joy in the now moment, because it is only when your thought-form about it has enough momentum that what you want will manifest in reality. You shouldn’t choose to make a thought-form from the fear of a bad experience. Like attracts like and it’s your own thought-forms that bring everything into your life, so whether you are focussing on good or bad, wanted or unwanted, that is what you will attract into your experience.
Many people say: “This or that person is bringing unwanted things into my life”. But no other person can manifest in anyone’s life, only the person for them self. All experiences come from the person’s own thought-forms.
Whether you are focusing predominantly on good things or bad things; that is what you will attract into your life. You might have five big things in your life that are not wanted – that make you feel ‘urgh’, and one thing that is wanted that makes you feel ‘oooh’. If you choose to think about the thing you want, you are happy – no problem. The ‘oooh’ vibration makes the thought-form have big momentum, so the five unwanted things must change to wanted things, because they don’t fit your happy vibration.
Equally, if you have 9 thoughts that are of wanted, happy things and one of an unwanted thing, if you continue to focus on the one unwanted thing, as people often do, then the energy of the wanted things will start to change towards the less wanted.
Here’s an example. If you taste something bad (urgh), you spit it out or swallow quickly to get rid of it. It’s important not to think about it. If you taste something good (oooh), you should deliberately choose to chew this for many moments, to make it last. You remember the good tasting, and when it’s gone you should think for many moments of the memory of the good taste. This makes positive thought-form momentum. When an unwanted thing happens, don’t think of it or focus on it, just think of a different ‘oooh’ taste. It doesn’t matter what you’re thinking about, only that it’s ‘oooh’ not ‘urgh’, so that you create positive thought-form momentum rather than negative thought-form momentum.
Another example is, if you sit by an open fire and a cinder spits from the fire onto your trousers. If you notice it straight away and flick it off, no hole, no problem. If you leave it there it burns the cloth. It’s the same with thinking about the thing you don’t want – it’s important to become aware and stop the thinking before it ‘burns a hole’ and becomes a negative thought-form.
Exercise in focusing on the wanted
Each night before sleeping, think of 5 things that have happened that day that you have liked. Do it regularly and soon you will be thinking of 10 things that day that you have liked. To do it before you sleep is important as it means you go into sleep in a positive vibration.
When you have become practised at this you will notice that you are feeling happier most of the time and that your mood is less often swayed into negativity by things that you dislike. It usually takes daily practice for more than a month to change the negative habits of a lifetime, so be patient.
When you are happier most of the time, you can change the focus slightly and think each night of 5 things that you have done that day that you are happy about. This is important for you to learn to appreciate yourself, this changes your core vibration to one of consistent happiness where you will attract more experiences that will make you happy.
So how long must we think positive thoughts instead of negative thoughts each day before we start to attract/manifest the things that we wish for?
Wrong question – It’s not a question of time, only momentum. The amount of momentum in the thought-form governs how quickly the wanted thing manifests. People might know the theory but often choose to think about the ‘urghs’ – a big waste of time as it brings the unwanted into their experience. Also people often think “it hasn’t come yet, it’ll never come. I can’t make this attraction thing work for me”. They are right because their negative thought-form makes it possible for only the unwanted to manifest, the wanted can only manifest in positive thought-forms.
*(A thought-form is a thought which is repeated many times and believed)

My own understanding of the ‘Law of Attraction’, and many other things, was helped enormously by speaking to Robert Hughes, a young man who died in World War I, who was channelled through his medium Saesneggar.
