Along with common myths, there is something devilishly addictive of invoking the Law of Attraction. We take the time to call upon this law when it seems to be convenient for us in our lives; we read and begin to immediately apply what we just learned to support us even further to ‘manifesting our desires’ and well our actions just may be contradicting what we were doing before to invoke this amazing law. Confused? Yes, many of us are when we think of the principles of the Law of Attraction. Despite everything that’s been written and aired about the law of attraction, a lot of people still do not understand its true philosophy and meaning because of the many contradictions surrounding it. The following are some the most common ones that I’ve come across and thought I would share.
Myth 1: The law of attraction works only with conscious thought.
This common myth couldn’t be farther from the truth. Your subconscious thoughts, feelings and actions all activate the law of attraction. Therefore working on yourself on a superficial level won’t do you much good. If you want the law of attraction to work for you, you have to purge negative and limiting beliefs from your system completely while stepping into action. The key is action!
Myth 2: The law of attraction will work for you whether or not you act on opportunities
So, you want to attract prosperity, love and happiness? Great! The law of attraction can bring you the opportunities, but unless you decide to take action and grab those opportunities you won’t gain anything. The universe can bring the goods to your doorstep, opening the door and accepting them is up to you. The key is action! This action now negates the common myth.
Myth 3: Your actions don’t count
The law of attraction simply states that you get what you focus on the most. Thinking positive thoughts won’t do you much good if your actions are not in sync with your thoughts. For instance, let’s say you want to attract good fortune and you are doing everything right when it comes to thinking but as far your actions go you have no qualms about being spiteful and malicious. Your actions will prevent you attracting the good that the universe has in store for you, as by acting on your negative feelings you actually end up sending out the message that you want more negativity in your life. The key is action!
Myth 4: Law of attraction is an easy way to get rich
The law of attraction can help you attract opportunities to get rich. What you do with those opportunities is completely up to you. For instance, if you focus in gaining prosperity, you may suddenly start getting great ideas or may bump into someone who can be a mentor to you, but none of those opportunities will yield anything unless you put in the required hard work. The key is action!
The law of attraction is a simple universal law that states that you reap what you sow, whether it is through your thoughts, feelings or actions. It is not a magic mantra to get rich, nor does it offer a short cut to success, all it does is make the journey to the point of fulfillment and success easier. The true key to embracing the power of this natural law is action – did I say that already? Let me say it again – action, action, action, action. And on the brink of repeating myself for you to create the life you desire and deserve you need to be in action. Your action is how the universe can re-act and provide you with even greater opportunity for you to yes step into action with.
