Wouldn’t you like to have anything you’ve ever wanted in life? Well, then the Law of Attraction [LOA] may be the right thing for you. It is super simple, and all you need is your brain and a good attitude.


The LOA is a belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, people can bring positive or negative experiences into their lives. See? I told you it was simple! Every day we manifest things into our lives without even knowing it. Have you ever thought you were sick, but it turns out you were fine all along? That was your mind tricking you into feeling like you were really sick. Since our brains are a lot more powerfu

l than we think, everyone has the ability to control their own life with just their thoughts. Once you realize this ability, your life will never be the same. So, here are some ways to practice this ability and start manifesting your biggest dreams and desires into your current reality.


Positive words are the key to getting what you want. Why talk negatively while trying to accomplish something for yourself? It just doesn’t work that way. Telling yourself positive things will increase your probability of getting what you want. For instance, write a list of some affirmations that refer to your life and try to say them out loud to yourself every day. Saying them out loud will benefit you more than saying them in your head because it will be as if you’re asking the universe to grant your wishes. If you repeat it a lot, the thought will get stuck in your subconscious, you’ll start to believe and your wishes will come before you know it!


Visualization is very important. If you can see it happening, it WILL happen, but you have to believe and see it happening in order for it to manifest. Make sure that when you use this method you add some passion and emotion into it. For example, how would passing that test make you feel? Adding feeling will help you to believe it more than you did before, as if it is more likely to happen.

Act As If

Acting as though something is already happening is a major method on its own. “Fake it till you make it” is more than just a catchphrase; it actually works! You want that boy? Act like you already have him! You want a greater salary? Act like you already have that money chillin’ in the bank!

Most importantly, you should not worry so much about what you do not have. When you worry about things, you cause blockage from your desire. Just ask the universe to grant you your wishes, then let it go. Trust that you will receive with time. Believe that you will attract your wishes and if it is meant to come, it will.
