Quiz: How Good Are You at Using Law of Attraction?

Enjoy this delightful guest quiz by Manifesting Rock Star Pam Grout, who is joining GVU for an intimate conversation on Jan 19th:

Pam Grout, E CubedWhen I was a teenager, I loved the quizzes in Seventeen magazine. I couldn’t wait to find out:

  • “Which fashion style best suits your taste?”
  • “What is your party personality?”
  • “Is he THE ONE?”

Even now, a day rarely goes by without one of my Facebook friends reporting the results of “Which member of the Beatles they are” or “Which Oprah quote should be their mantra.”

These quizzes are all in good fun and since good, delightful fun is one of my mantras (I didn’t even need Oprah to help figure that out), I’ve come up with the world’s first Law of Attractions Quiz.

To find out how adept you are at using this all-powerful law of the universe, answer these four questions:

1. Do you believe your thoughts create your reality?

a. Some of the time
b. All of the time
c. Only when you repeat an affirmation 568 times, visualize at least an hour a day and pray non-stop to a higher diety
d. Are you kidding me? I never get what I want.

2. Which of the following statements best matches your opening thought most mornings:

a. Oh shit, not again!
b. Yee-haw! A new opportunity for another Oscar-worthy production
c. Dang! Where is that hot brunette I was just dreaming about.
d. I’ve got to pee.

3. Which of the following most accurately describes your take on life:

a. It sucks and then you die.
b. It’s a test for what’s going to happen after you die.
c. It’s like an amusement park ride, sometimes exciting and sometimes it makes you want to die.
d. It’s a beautiful romp and death? It’s just a temporary illusory bump.

4. The universe is:

a. Limitless
b. Abundant
c. Strangely accommodating
d. All of the above.

Check your score here:

If most of your answers were “A”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
If most of your answers were “B”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
If most of your answers were “C”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.
If most of your answers were “D”: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.

If you didn’t even take the quiz: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.

Okay, so it was a trick quiz. And I could have just told you going in: You can’t NOT use the law of attraction. To question whether or not you do is like questioning whether or not you use gravity.

So here are three questions I actually like better:

1. Given the fact that your thoughts, beliefs and expectations play the starring role in your life experience, did you get up this morning and consciously create your day?
2. Did you get up this morning and purposely decide what kind of day you were going to have?
3. If not, what’s stopping you?

    I also have a comment about this post.
    I have had a problem with the term Law of Attraction for a long time. For as long as I can remember and never knew quite why until now. I know that this is a very widely accepted term but it does not resonate with me.
    I think it should be called Law of Alignment. Because saying we need to “attract” something implies we are separate from our good. Saying we need to “create” something implies it does not exist. It also implies that we are the creators and we are not.
    All things already exist. The illusion of their absence has to do with our own perception or lack thereof. You must have the eyes to see that which you desire and claim.
    Just like the story of Esther losing her pen. Its really funny and if I can find it I will post it here sometime. But it clearly shows how we have everything; the lack or the having is in the seeing or nor seeing of it.
    When we feel GOOD we expand our VISION and SEE farther and broader and all those things we thought we didn’t have come clearly into focus and we see we had them all along.

  • Patrice says:

    I read the post to the link you shared above on “I didn’t get what I wanted” but the comments are closed so I will comment here.
    We did get what we want. We always get what we want. We just are not paying attention to what we want. Oh yes, we “say” we want the car, the house, etc but as the bible says, “God is not mocked”. I take that to mean you can say what you want out loud but the Universe does not hear your voice only your vibes. If you are vibing “no” to what you are vocalizing then you got exactly what you wanted!
    Just my thought.

    That was a fantastic tool thank you Nathalie, excellent! Blessings, Ava x

    That was hilarious, and just what I needed tonight. Much love to you both, Jeannette and Pam, for the giggles. 🙂
    Andy: LOA is always working in your life… it can’t not work. But what you’re attracting into your life is not what you want — it’s what you believe, and more specifically, what you expect.
    Now, here’s where it gets tricky: your thoughts create your beliefs, and your beliefs create your expectations. So you have to start with your thoughts. But research tells us we have up around 70 000 thoughts per day, which works out to about 48 thoughts per minute. Far too many to keep conscious control of. So we work with our emotions.
    Our feelings are an incredibly sensitive early-warning detection system designed to alert us when we’re wandering off course, losing our connection with Who We Really Are, and setting ourselves up to manifest stuff into our life that we don’t really want. The better we feel, the more aligned we are, and the worse we feel, the more our alignment has gone off-kilter.
    The key is to keep yourself feeling good about what you’re trying to manifest. When there’s something that we really want very much to do, have, or experience in life we often think we’re aligned with manifesting it, but what’s really happening is that we’re so focused on “I want it I want it I want it and it isn’t here yet! Why isn’t it here yet?!”.
    So the energy we’re sending out there into the Universe is NOT actually aligned with manifesting what we want… it’s aligned with “I don’t have it yet”. The signal we’re sending out there is that what we want is not here yet — the expectation that we’re sending out there is that what we want is not here yet.
    And so it isn’t. It can’t be. Not while we’re aligned with not having it.
    So here’s what you do: Once you’re clear about what you want, figure out what the feelings are behind it. You want a new job, for example? Ask yourself why. What will having a new job make you feel? Figure out the emotions. And then find ways of feeling that same feeling now, before the thing you want is actually in your life.
    The basis of LOA is that like attracts like. So as you start letting yourself feel what it is that the thing you want would make you feel, then you’re setting yourself up to attract more situations into your life that make you feel the same way (like the thing you want).
    When you find yourself slipping into that mindspace where you’re feeling bad about what you want, like it’s never going to happen, etc… that’s when you know that your thoughts have gone of course, and so have your expectations.
    When that happens, do whatever it takes to bring yourself back to a good-feeling mindspace. Set up an iTunes “happy songs” playlist, watch a comedy, go out and toss a ball to your dog for while. Just do anything to shift your mood. Because that’s what will change your mind. Which is what will change your reality.

    Thanks Pam! Thanks Jeannette! This was sooo funny and such a great reminder for me, that I think too much (again).
    Smiling and light hearted now! 🙂

  • JG. says:

    I think the point is, You shouldn’t be trying so hard. That must be stressful and quite unpleasant.
    In my experience, you shouldn’t be trying to convince yourself also. This latter may need some explaining: Sometimes, a part of us strives for a hard time, because there is some hidden -sometimes not so hidden- gratification in it. Someone recently told me, for example, that in a Holy Book it says: As the effort is the reward, as the suffering the accomplishment (I am not a native English speaker, so I hope I made a fair translation). So, it is easy to understand that, for these people, effort and suffering are very valuable.
    I think must of us have, in one version or another, these kinds of beliefs or programmings, and one of our tasks is to uncover and assess them.
    With my best wishes,

  • It always helps me to remember that everything is energy – including your frustration, anxiety, joy and happiness. When you can step outside of the emotion and see it as energy, it becomes easier to make different choices.
    Always choose what makes you feel better in that moment.
    When you become aware that you have a choice in very moment, then you can begin to create a new experience!

  • Andy says:

    Matt – You know what? You are so right in what you say. Sometimes i think it’s just a case of back to basics, begin again or re-visit the last few days, weeks or even months and re-evaluate. It’s all very well saying i can’t do this, but then the negative part of me – which we all have – has won. It’s just as easy to say i CAN do this, but we must also try to understand how and why our negative thoughts impacted and more importantly, were allowed to impact our lives so dramatically.
    OK, I haven’t had so much success with LOA. But that doesn’t mean i should give up!! It’s a process which takes time to understand and to implement in our lives. It has to become a way of life, and thats not so easy for everyone.
    You are right Matt, things do get better. Higher levels of vibration are controlled by ME.
    Time to begin!!

  • Matt says:

    Andy – I struggled with this in the past, but you need to realise: this thing WORKS. It wouldn’t be such a huge, positive worldwide phenomenon if it was a load of nonsense. You are using LOA all of the time, regardless of if you realise it or not.
    I went through a tough period a few months ago, and revisiting Ronda Byrne’s ‘The Magic’ – essentially just a daily gratification tool – really helped me out and got me back into the LOA vibe. It made me realise, like you, that even thinking about LACK of something just attracts more.
    Things always – always – get better, but it’s up to you to use all those good vibes that are laying dormant inside you to set the process off.

  • Pam is Awesome… Thanks for laughter and the reminder… Time to consistently create my day …
    Starting now… Looking forward to Pam in person and giving her a great Big Hug ….
    Much Love and Joy

  • Andy, my favorite thing for people to do when they’re at that point is to take a break from it. Just seriously forget about LOA altogether, and find some other approach to enjoying life.
    Although readers had a variety of other suggestions in this post:

  • Andy says:

    I have read the books, watched the film, subscribed to half of the gurus on earth (and those who are no longer with us) and tried and tried until im blue in the face. But i can’t get to grips with this. I’m now broke and desperate for answers. Why am i here, what is my destiny. I know i’m capable and i know i am a brilliant salesman, but money elludes me and success does too. I have never lost faith in the LOA but i’m not sure i understand it anymore.

  • Pam’s a hoot, huh, Nancy?
    Goad you enjoyed it, too! 🙂

  • If you didn’t even take the quiz: You are a powerful creator, constantly using the law of attraction.

    Yes, I so agree. Thanks for the giggle!
    Many blessings,
