You have probably seen me mention this very briefly a time or two in the past but I wanted to make sure that I had enough personal experience with this and a decent amount of concrete findings before posting this with others because most of you know that I don’t like to post magickal guides on this website until I’m sure that what I’m speaking about is legitimate and true.
SO WHAT IS THE LAW OF ATTRACTION?
Opposite of the law of withdraw/reversed effect/reversed effort, the law of attraction is the practice of NOT using the law of reversed effect to get what you want. Now, how does that work? Well when you do a spell if it’s something you want to get rid of, something that is bothering you or puts you in a negative mood, or even something positive you desire but thinking about it can cause you to have feelings of doubt or negativity, that’s when the law of reverse effort comes into play and when you should forgot about your goal after doing a spell until the spell manifests so your thoughts and feelings do not interfere with the possible outcome.
However, if what you want is something you consider to be 100% positive and thinking about it only makes you feel happiness, joy, contentment, excitement, pleasure, etc. then thinking about what you want non-stop is not going to have any negative or reversed effects on your magick because thinking about it makes you happy enough to cause real feelings of joy to the point you smile or feel at ease over how great it’s going to be when you finally get (fill in the blank).
LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE
Those cheesy stupid posters they always have hanging on the walls at schools like “Attitudes are contagious, be nice to your classmates” and so on, those are a good example. Now in America most public schools, when I went to school, they did not believe in being politically correct or respecting all belief systems. Most of the teachers and the principals were christians and they expected everyone to pray during assemblies and thank god for everything good that happened at the school so at my school those posters were probably a reminder of the golden rule “Do unto others…”
But not just with attitudes and behavior, ALL like attracts like. If you act like an ass, the universe will treat you like an ass. If a string of bad events happens to you one day and you dwell on those events like damn it nothing is going right today, this sucks! Your poor attitude is only going to affirm to the universe that yes, this day DOES suck for you but just remember, you’re the one who said it so let’s keep this streak of bad luck going.
By griping and complaining because one or two negative or unpleasant things have happened to you today, your statement of “my life sucks, this couldn’t possibly get any worse!” is an affirmation to the universe that you’ve admitted how you feel but by admitting it you are saying I’m aware of what is happening but obviously I have no control over this and it cannot be changed and the universe will grant you your wish. Think about that past statement I typed in.
“My life sucks” If you say that to yourself you are only reaffirming it so the universe will say Yes, your life DOES suck!
“This couldn’t possibly get any worse!” again another negative affirmation and when stated outloud or in your own mind the universe will say, oh really, you think this can’t get any worse for you? and the universe quickly turns into the serial killer from Saw and says “Do you want to play a game? Because I do.” Then the following series of events that unfolds for you are based off of your negative affirmations. You expected that the rest of your day would go bad, and it did.
People who feel negative or doubtful like this all the time, find that no matter how much magick or rituals they do, and no matter how many mundane ways they try to overcome this downward spiral of negativity it will not go away. Those people convince themselves that the universe hates them, or they have angered a goddess, or the lord is punishing them thru karma for something they did 5 years ago depending on that person’s religious beliefs when the entire time, none of that negativity was even necessary and THEY were the ones punishing themselves all along.
THOUGHTS HAVE POWER- THOUGHTS ARE SPELLS
Now if you are not convinced that thoughts have power alone, how many times have you expected a certain outcome to the point you were certain without a doubt that’s what the outcome WILL be? And how many times has the outcome end out exactly like you thought it would? Most of the time right?
“Why am I even wasting my time entering into the talent competition? I never rank in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, I just get one of those stupid participation ribbons. My family and friends must be lying and telling me my dance moves are good just to avoid hurting my feelings but I’m probably making a fool of myself on stage every year! I wish they’d just be honest with me instead of encouraging me just to be nice.”
Look at that statement. You are affirming that the talent show is a waste of time, that you have no talent, and that your friends and family are lying to you just to boost your self esteem. What most likely will happen is that again, you will not place in an upper ranking and you will go home with no prize because you expected it to be that way. You expected it so much, that you reaffirmed it to yourself by thinking it repeatedly every day leading up to the competition.
IF THOUGHTS HAVE POWER, WHY AREN’T MY POSITIVE THOUGHTS GETTINGS ME WHAT I WANT?
You may have already been aware of the concept of like attracting like and you may be thinking, well I try to be positive all the time, I even stop myself EVERY time a negative thought enters my mind and try to convince myself that my negative thoughts have no power over me, but bad things still happen to me on a regular basis and the good things I think about never come true. Is this concept just bullshit? Or am I doing something wrong?
You are doing one of following three things wrong, or possibly even all 3.
This is when you think of something you would like to come true but there is no real emotion behind your thoughts. You cannot just think of something and think oh I want that, I need that, I love that and expect it to happen, especially if you quickly slip into a negative mood again and think “yeah, but that will never happen, it never does!” You have to want it bad enough that you feel real joy and happiness just thinking about it, something that brings out real emotions in you to the point you catch yourself smiling or laughing when you think about it.
EXPECTATIONS TOO HIGH:
You do believe in yourself and your power but your expectations are way too high to start with. You cannot learn the concepts that I am telling you about and expect to win the lottery in the next 2 weeks just by thinking about it. You have to start with small demands on the universe, things that will be successful so you can build a little mound of previous successes which will help to convince you even more that this concept is real.
Start by making a small and simple positive affirmation to yourself every day, or even multiple times a day. “I will find $10 laying the street.” Suspend all doubt and disbelief, feel happiness and joy, how you will feel when you finally look down and see a $10 bill lying on the sidewalk. When your wish finally comes true, practice again by asking for several other SMALL favors from the universe. When enough of your wishes have been granted that you reach the conclusion this is real, it really works, then slowly reach for higher goals.
This will give you a chance to practice and really believe in this by starting small and working your way up. Big goals are not going to manifest if you can’t even get a small goal to manifest. And don’t expect results over night. First time users of this concept may find that it takes several weeks for the first goal to manifest because even though they believe in their powers, they still have some societal programming lingering in the back of their mind from where society, religion, and the government tell us that wishes cannot come true, that we have no control over our own lives, and that our lives are just a series of random events left in the hands of god or chaos.
USING THE WRONG TENSE:
Just like with sigil magick, when you make an affirmation to yourself use present tense. Instead of I want, I hope, I wish that, use terms like I feel so happy because I got that job that I wanted. Fool your mind into thinking you already have your desires. Fake it until you make it.
This concept is so simple to follow and maintain yet 90% of you will fail at this because you will make one or all of the mistakes that I mentioned above and then convince yourself it’s not your fault that you are failing at it. Some people are just not cut out to do magick in any form because they lack everything that I mentioned above yet they are unable to get that thru their mind.
Some people get so discouraged when stuff like this doesn’t happen over night but instead of disciplining themselves and keeping at it, they let the smallest little interference erase every bit of progress they have made and they are blind to it, always looking for someone else to blame or trying to get someone more advanced to do the work for them and things like this, even the most advanced magician can’t flip a magickal switch in your head and make you believe in things you really don’t believe in 100% or make you see things in a way that you were never meant to see them in, in a way that your mind is incapable of fathoming. I know no one who comes to a forum like this wants to be a sheep, but some people were just meant to be sheep, plain and simple.
IF THOUGHTS HAVE POWER, THEN WHY DON’T MY ACCIDENTAL NEGATIVE THOUGHTS COME TO LIFE?
Just like it can take several days of constant reaffirmation for a positive thought to manifest, the same holds true for a negative thought. Just because your mind is running wild because you watched too many horror movies yesterday and you imagining someone at your door with a knife, doesn’t mean it will come true unless you continue to think about it non-stop and by non-stop I don’t mean the idea accidentally pops into your head every 3-4 days, I mean you would have to dwell on it several times a day and experience real emotion when dwelling on it. If you acidentally think of getting bitten by a spider 15 times this month, if you immediately distract yourself with something else and try not to dwell on it 24/7, thinking about it won’t cause something bad to happen to you.
But keeping that in mind, negative thoughts CAN come true when excessive emphasis is placed on them. You can also use this concept to make something negative happen to an enemy but earlier I mentioned that it’s best not to think of things that cause negative emotional reactions, at least until you have mastered the positive side of is concept first and feel you can handle the negative side as well. Which is why most people use the law of reversed effect for things that involve negativity. But this concept works for other purposes as well.
IF THIS CONCEPT IS REAL, THEN WHY ISN’T EVERYONE ON THE PLANET RICH, POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, AND SUCCESSFUL?
Well like I said before, not everyone has what it takes to master this concept. 90% of you ON HERE that try this will fail, and we are magicians, so what makes you think the controlled sheeple population could master this concept so easily? Exactly, LOL. Not everyone is cut out to do this, not everyone is capable of overcoming their programming long enough to convince their brain this stuff really works. Also keep in mind, not everybody wants the same thing. It’s the reason why usually, our supply is enough to meet the demand but not everyone likes green beans (yuck!) or chocolate cake. Well, not everyone sees being rich or beautiful as important. Some people are perfectly happy living on a middle class income, they don’t desire 10 vintage cars and a 24k gold plated carousel in their back yard. So even if everyone in the world believed in this, no two people would desire or value the exact same things.
I can post some of my own experiences later on, I’ve typed too much already and need a break.
