Definition Of The Law Of Attraction

Everything in the universe is made from the same thing, energy. We have always regarded matter as being solid, but if we were to look at our hands with a powerful microscope, we would see molecules of atoms, held together, but with large gaps of nothing, not a solid.

If we were to look closer we would observe these atoms made up of a nucleus with protons whizzing around them, like planets whizzing around our sun, we are not solid, we are not static, we are energy.

Its not just our external characteristics that are energy, our thoughts are too. If you put your hands on your head and just hold them there for a moment.

Now consider all the muscles that were employed to complete that simple task, you read the instruction, and carry out the task, seemingly, without a thought. But thousands of electronic signals were sent with the aid of your body network, instructing muscles to contract and expand, nerves to analyze, sense and provide feedback, until your limbs were in the ideal environment, for more signals to explode through your body telling everything to pause.

Now ponder hitting a ball with a bat, analyze that!

Now try something else for five minutes.

Sit still at your computer, control your body in a relaxed position without moving.

Now look away from the computer screen, have a quick glance at the time, and stare at nothing, empty your mind and think of nothing, just for 5 minutes.

We our like little industries of thought, little foundries of energy source, and like the proton whizzing around the nucleus we are either positive or negative, we are living magnets giving off positive or negative energy, and in much the same way as magnets we are attracting into our lives the same energy that we are giving, depending on which end of the magnet we are activating, this is the law of attraction.

One of the ways of formulating a definition of the Law of Attraction would be to think of what reading material resonates with you, what thoughts ring true, which people have good or bad vibes, or who is on the same wavelength.

These are more than just metaphors, they are accurate ways of describing the vibration of our reality.

If a metal plate sprinkled with sand is vibrated by a tone matching one of its resonant frequencies (matching the pitch at which the plate naturally rings when struck), then standing waves arise in the plate.

The sand accumulates in areas where the waves are zero and helps visualize what the standing waves look like, which pattern forms will depend on on what matching frequency or note is vibrated, which in turn depends on the physical characteristics of the plate itself.

Everything that vibrates will contain standing waves. This includes bells, tuning forks, resonant chambers, stones, etc… As long as the applied frequency matches the object's frequencies, standing waves will result.

In much the same way we all vibrate with energy, and vibrate at our unique frequency.

It is known that two tuning forks with the same physical characteristics when held close together, the ringing fork will cause a non-ringing fork to ring as they resonate with each other.

In the same way, two people will resonate with each other when they share common frequency. Simply having common motivations is not enough to cause resonance. There must also be compatibility on the soul level that you can feel.

This resonate definition of the Law of Attraction would be, like attracts like. If my vibrating energy is positive, I will attract into my life positive people, likewise if my vibrating energy is negative, I will attract like-minded negative people.

The definition of the Law of Attraction could be perhaps more easily explained as the Law of Vibration.

Michael Losier definition of the Law of Attraction simply puts it as,

"A Definition of The Law of Attraction is, I attract to my life whatever I give my attention, Energy and Focus to. Whether wanted or unwanted. "

Another definition of the Law of Attraction says that with syncronicity, we attract from the outside what you resonate with, on the inside.

That you can also bring into your life what you momentarily strongly focus upon.

To broaden this definition of the Law of Attraction a little, we could say that by having an optimistic attitude and focusing on success, one attracts these, while having a cynical depressed attitude attracts negative experiences.

If you totally focus on the fact that you have little money, bad health, or poor relationships, the Law of Attraction will respond by giving you more of what you are focusing on. Naturally, most people don't really want more of the things they lack, but because they are putting focus and energy toward the negative, more negativity happens.

Therefore by using thought as intention and attention, in other words, thinking will be the cause, observing will change the original outcome and become the effect.

Yet another simplistic definition of the Law of Attraction is from Val Smyth, founder of Mentors in Motion. For his definition of Law of Attraction and the use of positive affirmation, Val refers to Captain and Crew Technology. He explains the process as,


To draw his depiction of the human mind, you would draw a large circular head resting on top of a stick body, if you divide the head in two with a horizontal line, placing the word Captain (conscious mind) in the top half, and Crew (subconscious mind) in the bottom half.

On the top of the head you would place two antennas, one with a positive (+) sign, the other a negative (-) sign, and between the antenna, an energy or frequency line.

Everything that takes place comes from energy, our thoughts to situations, comments, conversation, indeed our life experience will be received and transmitted from the positive or the negative antenna.

What the mind is provided with will be analysed by the captain, before passing to the crew. So it is the captain (the conscious mind) who is analytical, who will decide, what is true and what is untrue, before giving the information to the crew. The crew (the subconscious mind) cannot analyse, cannot reason and relies 100% on the captain to create its reality.

In Val's definition of the Law of Attraction, the captain is rather like the watchman at the gate protecting the crew.

On the other hand, there is huge flaw in this arrangement, if the captain experiences are predominately negative energy, the crew will have no choice but to manifest predominately negative feelings.

If I tell you that you are ugly, then you can take that experience as a positive and choose to ignore my worthless opinion, thus protecting the crew or you can experience it as a negative, telling the crew that they are ugly and worthless.

The crew must manifest what the captain tells them, if the captain responded in a negative way, telling the crew that they are ugly, then the crew will have no choice but manifest the feelings of ugliness, worthlessness and low esteem.

In the same way if I thank you for something, telling you how wonderful you are, the captain experiences this as a positive, and tells the crew the same thing, the crew has no choice but to manifest those feelings of feeling good.

A good example that Val shares with us in his explanation and definition of the Law of Attraction, is one of his own experiences, growing up with his father who persistently verbally abused him. A young life of being told that he was worthless, unlovable, hated and useless, of course you can imagine the end result.

The captains job was to gather the data and pass on to the crew that which he understood to be true, so, if the captain believes the abuse, then the crew must respond, manifesting shy, fearful and introverted emotions, of course this child will grow up to be just that, shy, introverted, and scarred, withdrawing from relationships and experiencing difficulty in handling themselves in society.

Such a person may dream of success, relationships, prosperity and happiness but until those inner feelings and subconscious beliefs are addressed, they will never find any of these things.

As soon as he recognized that his abuser wasn't directing his hate to anything but his feelings towards himself, he could start to disregard his father's abusive nature, stop believing him and manifest a different destiny for himself.

I am sure that you know that as you read this, your body continues to function, your heart beats, kidneys clean, lungs pump. You are a mass of energy, repairing and replacing yourself. This is your crew at work, creating your inner and outer world. It's your subconscious and will bring into reality anything you desire.

Did rich people get rich by chance? No, they use the Captain and Crew, manifesting abundance into reality.

Do people stay on benefits by chance? No, they use the Captain to tell the Crew that they have low self-esteem, they are not worthy, and that they need support, sure enough the crew will manifest that reality to.

You must BE poverty, to DO poverty, to HAVE poverty

In the same way if you are of a middle class mindset, the Captain will instruct the Crew that you need $40k, $50k or $60k annual income to maintain your middle class lifestyle, every month there will be enough money to pay your mortgage, your 2 cars and put enough food on the table, nothing more and nothing less.

You must BE middle class, to DO middle class, to HAVE middle class

If the Captain tells the Crew to do something, the Crew will respond, under no circumstances question it and never doubt it. If you doubt it then what happens, the Captain is then telling the Crew 'Don't believe that order' causing confusion and chaos.

Be specific in what you order, and be specific with what you want, the Captain and Crew will bring into reality anything you desire. Your house, your street, your partner, your job, and your car are a result of the Captain and Crew, you created these things, and you attracted them to you.

Everything you see, everything that surrounds you, is the result of your conscious mind, telling your subconscious mind, and your subconscious mind manifesting it for you. This is the Law of Attraction in action.

Regardless of what definition of the Law of Attraction you take on board, you must learn to control your conscious mind, whether you're using meditation for abundance techniques, attracting abundance and prosperity into your life, or using Law of Attraction relationship exercises.

It's the power of positive thinking, combined with spiritual growth that will give you the power of your conscious mind which will, in turn, enable your subconscious mind to manifest your desires.
