The Law of Attraction is a concept that has been made popular in the book called The Secret. After this book was published, the Law of Attraction started gaining many followers and believers. However, many people also considered the Law of Attraction to be completely delusional. The problem is that both the book and the movie The Secret explain the Law of Attraction at a very superficial level, giving people the wrong impression about what it is.
There are many misconceptions about what the Law of Attraction is circulating the internet. In this article, let’s debunk a few of these misconceptions and prove that the Law of Attraction is not delusional.
1. The Law of Attraction is delusional because it states that The Universe will supply whatever you want if you want it enough
So, is the Law of Attraction delusional because it says you can attract whatever you want just because you want it badly enough? Let’s debunk this! The Law of Attraction is not magic. It doesn’t mean that if you want something and think about it furiously, it will materialize in front of you or magically appear in your life the next day. The problem is that many skeptical people oversimplify what the Law of Attraction really says.
The Law of Attraction is only one of the 12 Universal Laws that we need to fully understand to create the reality we desire. To understand the Law of Attraction at a deeper level, you need to first understand the Law of Vibration. The Law of Vibration states that everything is energy and everything vibrates at a certain frequency. This means that the device you’re reading this article on vibrates at a specific frequency, the chair you’re sitting on vibrates at a specific frequency. The thoughts you’re thinking right now vibrate at a specific frequency, and whatever you’re trying to attract into your life also vibrates at a specific frequency.
The Law of Attraction then states that we attract whatever we are a vibrational match to. This means that if you want to attract more money, you need to vibrate at the frequency of money. So manifesting something into your life comes down to raising your vibrational frequency to match the frequency of what you’re trying to attract. And this often means shifting your entire belief system, taking action towards your dreams, and becoming the person who can have what you’re trying to attract.
2. The Law of Attraction is delusional because it states that you can attract into your life whatever you think about.
One of the main misconceptions that make people believe that the Law of Attraction is delusional is that we can attract things into our life through our thoughts. Contrary to what many people think, our thoughts are only part of the manifestation process. We don’t manifest from our thoughts. We manifest from our subconscious mind. We attract things into our life based on our inner beliefs and subconscious programming that we are sometimes not even aware of. This explains why many times, people end up attracting negative things into their lives all the time.
Think about your brain as a computer program. This software that has been installed in your brain operates on autopilot every single day. You think the same thoughts every day, make the same decisions every day, and act the same way every day. If you want to change your life, you need to reprogram this software. The only way to do that is to look closely at the code that runs this program, identify what’s not working the way you want it to work, and reprogram it into a new line of code that will produce the outcome you want. Unless you rewire your beliefs, you won’t be able to change your thoughts, and therefore, you won’t be able to change your life.
3. The Law of Attraction states that you can attract into your life whatever you focus on
This is true to some degree, but this statement is oversimplified. As I explained above, attracting something into your life is not about wanting it and thinking about it obsessively. In fact, the more you think about it, the more resistance you create, and it will only push your desire further away! When we focus on something, we direct our energy towards it. For example, if you focus on the lack of money, you direct all of your energy towards the lack of money. When you focus on the lack, you start to vibrate at the frequency of lack. But remember that the Law of Attraction states that we attract whatever we are a vibrational match too! So, if you are vibrating at the frequency of lack, you’ll attract more lack.
4. The Law of Attraction is delusional because it implies that bad things that happen to you are the result of thinking the wrong thoughts
This is not entirely true. As I already explained above, we manifest from our inner, deeply rooted beliefs rather than conscious thoughts. These beliefs are usually self-sabotaging beliefs that limit our potential. For example, if we believe that we are not good enough or can’t do something, our thoughts will reflect those beliefs. We will then attract more negative things, events, and people into our lives that confirm it!
Another explanation as to why bad things happen to people is karmic debt. We are spiritual beings living a temporary experience on the three-dimensional plane. We come to this planet to have new experiences and learn lessons that make us grow spiritually. Some bad things that happen to us are a karmic debt that we had created in our past lives or karmic lessons that we had chosen to work on when we decided to come to this planet. This has nothing to do with the Law of Attraction.
Many people discredit the Law of Attraction simply because they haven’t taken enough time to investigate what the Law of Attraction is all about. They are now spreading false information about it on the internet, most likely because the Law of Attraction hasn’t given them the expected results! So, is the Law of Attraction delusional? No, it isn’t. When you truly understand what the Law of Attraction really is and how to apply it in your life to attract whatever you want, you will realize that practicing it the right way can make your life a thousand times better!
