In modern times, many people are coming to realise the effects that meditation can have. But even better than this is how you can combine a meditation with the law of attraction. Doing this is know to yield some incredible results and is viable way to help you work towards your dream life.
Whether you are a complete beginner or someone who is familiar with the law of attraction and how it works, knowing how to do these manifestation meditations could be life changing.
In this article, we are going to be discussing everything you will need to know to get started and explaining the details of the law of attraction.
What Is The Law Of Attraction
You may have heard about the law of attraction, more and more people are talking about this. It is not uncommon to see businessmen and women, celebrities and those just starting out on their journey using manifestation meditations to turn their goals into a reality.
There are three laws of attraction;
- Like attracts like
- Nature abhors a vacuum
- The present is always perfect
The law of attraction that most people are familiar with is ‘like attracts like’ and this is what many of us use when engaging in a meditation practice.
When you think about like attracts like, it is something that makes a lot of sense. Think about what you look for in a partner, you likely want someone who comes from a similar social background, a similar level of education and with similar interests. For most of us, we are attracted to people with similar traits without consciously thinking about it. This shows that what we put out into the universe comes back to us.
This same law applies when trying to manifest our goals and dreams. If there is something that you strive to achieve, you won’t find success by doing things that are counterproductive. For example, if you want to write a book, you will never achieve that if you start painting a picture.
When we try to manifest our desires, we are putting out the kind of energy that is conducive to achieving success. This is often associated with positive thinking and this is one of the simplest yet most effective techniques when it comes to manifestation.
When you send out positive thoughts, these have an enormous amount of power. They will go out into the universe and return to you in the form of success. Let’s go back to that book you want to write; performing meditations that have you visualising opening the pages of your book or signing the copyright papers will likely turn into a reality. However, if you visualise yourself failing, these negative energies will become your reality.
It is an extremely simple concept that unfortunately, a lot of people do not fully understand. You can manifest anything you choose; love, improved health, success at work and even a greater understanding of your own self.
How Does The Law Of Attraction Work?
When you first hear about the idea of the law of attraction, it can be a little strange and sometimes you may find it difficult to get your head around. But once you begin seeing the effects, you will appreciate how powerful these meditations can be and will quickly see that they do work.
As a human being, you are always interacting with the universe, mostly through the power of thought, each thought being an expression of your deepest desires. These thoughts have their own energetic frequency and according to the law of attraction, this can help with your navigation through life by filling it with abundance.
When you set up a meditation routine based on the law of attraction you are not merely meditating but you are working with the subtle vibration of your own self; we all have these vibrations but many of us don’t know how to use them.
If you are having feelings of depression, anxiety or feeling pessimistic, the energy that you put out will be significantly lower than when you are happy. At times like this, your vibration will be high and this attracts other positive vibrations towards you, therefore, helping you to achieve success in all you strive for, be it love, your work or giving your bank account a boost.
But perhaps what is even more important is that meditating this way and using your positive energy is one of the ways that you can bring supportive and positive people into your life.
When you hear about all of the great things that this exercise can bring right from the beginning, it is little wonder that you will be keen to get started. Now of course, there are things in life that will affect your vibration that are out of your control but how you react to these things will go hand in hand with the type of energy you put out; essentially, you are always in control.
If you are a fan of meditation, you may have done this in conjunction with your spiritual beliefs. However, a lot of practitioners worry that these law of attraction meditations will somehow contradict their beliefs. This is not the case since the law of attraction involves no religious aspects and is more of a science of the mind than anything else. That being said, you should always listen to your heart and follow a path that feels right to you.
How Do You Do A Law Of Attraction Meditation?
Much like anything, you may need to practice this type of meditation in the beginning before you get comfortable going through the steps yourself. One of the best ways to get started is to use a guided meditation. Guided meditations are a great tool for building your confidence in the practice.
Humans have meditated for thousands of years and it is a great way to calm the mind and stop the brain whirring with hundreds of thoughts a minute. A Law of attraction meditation will relax you but the added benefit is that you will be one step closer to achieving your goal.
But if you want to reap the power of this type of meditation, you must be willing to put in the time. We all lead a busy life but you should try to put aside at least 15 minutes every day for this practice.
Step one: Relaxation
One of the key steps to any meditation is to allow yourself to relax. It is easy for thoughts to creep in and the mind to become busy, especially when you lead a busy life but this is one of the things that you will need to practice.
You may need to experiment with different positions and find a way that your body feel comfortable. A lot of meditation practitioners like to sit in a chair with their feet on the ground, but if you are a person who does not find this comfortable, by all means, choose something that will work for your body.
Step Two: Become Focused
The best thing you can do to get into a focused state is to concentrate on your breathing. The mind my wander and irrelevant thoughts might appear but you can keep bringing your mind and your focus back to your breathing.
Keep your attention on this every time a new thought pops into your mind, gently bringing yourself away from the thought and back to the breath. There is no need to force this and over time, you will be able to train your brain into doing this more easily.
Each of us will take a different length of time to become focused and if you are struggling with problems in your life such as anxiety or depression, you may find that intrusive thoughts come more freely. But take your time. Allow your mind to settle at its own pace. Many experts would suggest counting your breathing for at least 20 breaths but if you need to do more, pay attention to the subtle signs that your mind and body give you and go with this.
Step Three: Opening The Heart
The next step of this type of meditation will take around five minutes, but again, you can spend longer doing this if you feel that you need to.
To begin with you will need to choose a mantra. Using positive affirmations during meditation is an extremely effective technique and in this case, you will need to choose affirmations that show your heart is open to receiving and achieving your goal.
You might repeat something along the lines of ‘My heart is open to receive and I am a good person.’ It doesn’t matter too much what you say but more that you feel gradually more powerful, confident and relaxed as you repeat the mantra.
Another thing that can help with this is to use a visualisation exercise and picture an image of your heart opening up, perhaps with a bright light radiating from it.
Step Four: Imagine Your Desires
This is one of the most important parts of this type of meditation, although everything about the practice is important.
It is best to do this with the eyes closed, but if you want to do it with open eyes then that is OK, provided that you are able to remain in a meditative state.
You will need to focus your mind on building a visualisation of what you want to achieve. Let’s say that you are trying to manifest love, you could bring together ideas of what the person might look like, what they might feel like, how the person might smell or what their voice sounds like. This is an opportunity to use every sense to create an image that feels incredibly realistic. It is the beliefs of many that this image has the power to become a reality all through the energy it attracts.
Step Five: Practice Gratitude
This part of the meditation can be done as a standalone activity. It is easy for us to strive to achieve everything we want and use manifestation for this reason only. However, when we look at the finer details of this practice, it becomes clear that without gratitude, we simply cannot attract abundance.
There has been a huge focus on gratitude in recent times and many have written books on the subject, so be sure to place a good amount of focus on this portion of the practice.
At this point, you should be in a very relaxed state and potentially connection to your higher self. This will allow you to place your awareness on everything in your life that you are grateful for. It can be all too easy for us to focus on the bad things in our life; problems in our love life, health issues like depression, anxiety, pain and disease as well as issues at work. However, when you take a closer look at your life, you will begin to see that there are many wonderful gifts within it.
Keep your mind on every positive aspect of your life and allow yourself to fill will gratitude. The energy that you put out when doing this will convert into even more positive things coming into your life. Remember, like attracts like.
Step Six: Manifestation
Once you have finished the meditation, you will likely feel calm and lifted, all signs of anxiety and worry will be gone. You can now open your eyes and spend a few moments embracing this positive shift in your thoughts and attitude.
But it doesn’t end there, as you go through your navigation of life, you will now need to take physical steps to help you achieve your dreams. Look at the details of each goal and work out how you are going to achieve them.
Many of those who practice the law of attraction suggest living your life in such a way that you already have all of your desires. Living in this state fills you with the beliefs that your dream life doesn’t only exist in your thoughts but also in reality.
We will use the example of love once again. If you had the love of your life, how would you be acting? What would you be doing? How would you be feeling? At first thought, you might think that this is difficult but as you do it more, you will find that this step of manifestation become easier.
The mind is a powerful tool but what a lot of people do not realise is that we can use our mind to bring a new balance into our lives through the power of meditation.
What many do not understand is that meditation is not only a practice that can invoke relaxation and calm but meditation is also something that can alter your entire state of being. In this case, using meditation with the law of attraction means that you can change your life and all that is in with just by directing positive thoughts out into the universe.
This is a concept that has been widely talked about in modern times, you’ve probably seen it on social media and all over the internet. The amazing thing is that you can use a manifestation meditation for so many different uses; improving your health, especially in a time where mental health issues like depression are rife, finding romance, improving your career and much more.
Doing this type of meditation should only take around 15 minutes each day but the effects will have a profound result on every moment of your life.
