The law of attraction has been around for a long time, and it attaches a lot of importance to positive thinking. According to this law, it is extremely important to remember that you attract what you are or ‘like attracts like’. If you yourself remain positive, your life experiences and thoughts will start reflecting the same. The greatest minds, including Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Abraham Lincoln, and Mahatma Gandhi, have talked about the extraordinary results of being positive in life.
While a few of us have manifested the results of attracting better by being better, most people aren’t blind to the power of manifesting. The mechanism behind the art of manifestation is quite simple—you attract what you are.
You might have heard about this phrase many times but are still confused about its working. Well, keep on reading this article, and you shall have your answer.
This means that the better you are, the better you attract. The power of positive thoughts is undoubtedly real. Read on to get more clarity on this exciting and proven concept.
“You Attract What You Are” Meaning
According to quantum physics, everything is energy. This means that you will manifest whatever you are genuinely feeling in life. For instance, if you are feeling low in life, you will attract bitter experiences. This might also mean that you will find disappointment and sadness even in good experiences.
Norman Vincent Peale, the author of the best-selling book ‘The Power of Positive Thinking,’ says, ‘You can change your thoughts by changing the way you think.’
Thus, the law of attraction is merely thinking of better thoughts because one way or another, you attract what you are. Many famous authors and spiritualists, including Deepak Chopra, Robin Sharma, and Rhonda Byrne reckon that your thoughts are energy. Like attracts like—it’s a given.
As per Einstein, our thoughts are frequency. The higher the frequency you carry in your thoughts, the better things you attract in life. People who live in a state of fear, sadness, and disappointment often attract similar experiences in life. So you attract what you fear!
In the same way, people who thrive on love, adventure, and happiness attract like experiences, people, and activities. One can try this and see the results for themselves.
How to attract better people, things, and experiences?
You might have seen good people suffer and not-so-good people are living a great and healthy life. The difference between their lives is the way they think. Many good people suffer certain abuses in life, which affects their thought process. Their subconscious mind makes them believe that they don’t deserve good things in life. However, people of bad character or morals do not feel remorse or fear for their deeds. Thus, they work like a magnet for good experiences and people.
Now that you know the power of your thoughts, you can actively work on achieving a healthier mindset, and slowly, you will let go of old patterns and attract people who will help you achieve better things in life.
To attract better thoughts, you must focus on three things-
- Good emotional and mental health
- Clearing mental blockages in your mind
- Always thinking positive thoughts – because positive attracts positive!
When you start feeling better, your emotional health improves automatically. When your emotional health improves, your way of thinking becomes positive, and your thoughts become powerful. The power of your thoughts also clears emotional and mental blockages in your mind. This results in attracting and manifesting better thoughts.
Additionally, once you clear all the mental blockages in your mind that are preventing you from becoming your best self, you will automatically be able to attract positive thoughts in your life. This will further enhance your mindset and attract positive things in your life.
Tip: One of the best ways to attract better experiences is to spend time around positive and happy people. When you feel their energy around you, you automatically start feeling better and learn to live a good life.
