What is the Law of Attraction?

what is the law of attraction?The law of attraction is this simple: what you put out is what you get back.

No need to complicate it.

(Thanks to Bashar for that short and sweet summary.)

Some folks write entire books to explain it, but seriously, it’s simple.

In Ask and It Is Given Abraham defines LOA like this: “Things of like vibration are drawn to each other.”

Mike Dooley succinctly describes the process of manifestation as: “Thoughts become things.”

If you want something meatier to digest, check out Steve Pavlina’s explanation of law of attraction here.

But don’t complicate it for yourself.

What you put out is what you get back. 🙂

    I agree that it’s simple. Sorry, Hudson, but you start talking about hard work and “making” things happen, you’re losing me. It’s not up to us to “make” things happen. We can put out the intention, we can follow inspired action, but the “How” of something isn’t up to us. And if we get caught up in the tools of LOA – vision boards, affirmations, gratitude journals – then it becomes a chore. In my experience, the best things happen when I’m not looking for them.

    Thank you for the reminder to keep this concept simple. It’s when we overcomplicate the process that we make it more difficult and fail to see the required results.

  • I don’t think it’s really that simple. The movie “The Secret” was a good introduction to the basics of the Law of Attraction but it downplayed the hard work that is needed to make things happen. Thinking or affirming things into being is not really how it works. But change is possible if the Law of Attraction is combined with action. It is amazing what can happen with focus and persistence. I continue to be impressed by the power of the universal message of the “New Thought” teachers of the last 100 years, and the relevance of their ideas today. I always go back to William Walker Atkinson’s book “Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World” when I need an explanation of how the Law of Attraction REALLY works.

    Oh so simple – like attracts like. I like that !

  • Katy, I think that’s exactly why I love Bashar’s material so much lately! (I’m fairly new to it.) It’s similar to what I’ve heard from others, but with whole new language and energy in it.
    So I totally get what you’re saying! 🙂

  • Katy says:

    Thanks Jeannette for some links to reinforce what we ‘already’ know…lol Well sort of, eh? I know I like to have access to various ways to interpreting the info, depending on the mood I’m in! Sometimes you just need a different spin on it!

  • I agree, S – in fact I wrote an article a while ago called No Big Decisions On Bad Days for that very reason!
    And Janette, love how easily you share relief all over the internet!
    Thanks for posting, you two! 🙂

  • Janette says:

    Ahhhh. What a relief. 🙂

  • S says:

    reading abrahams books PUTs me in the zone and am back to being hopeful again. ive realized it best not to do any decision making work, however little , without being in the zone 🙂

  • Right – one of the things I appreciate about Abraham’s material, and Bashar’s, too, is the consistent reminder that it’s easier than we think. Bashar says you don’t have to learn how to manifest – you’re already doing it all the time!

  • Sara says:

    It is incredibly simple, huh? I know for myself, hilariously, the less I spend time reading Abraham and focusing on understanding it, the more I actually experience what it is for me-as-sara to allow. It’s a flowy, ever-evolving, non-textbooky kind of thing…at least for me. 🙂
    I’m sure for some that’s exactly how they get in their zone, which might explain why there is so much to read on the subject! 🙂 Very cool how we all have our own taste when it comes to allowing…
