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.

    Amazing article Nia! i want to share my experience with the law of attraction and hopefully help others who are struggling.

    In the early stages of running my cake business back in 2013 i would always try to visualize about getting customers and sales, i kept trying over and over again.But nothing was happening at all.

    I couldn’t afford to keep paying the rent for my business in an expensive part of the city, with no customers and i was ready to shut down my business.
    I became depressed for a while and thought that the Law of Attraction was B.S and i was just about to give up.
    But by pure luck i stumbled upon a blog which talks about the subconscious mind, it explained why visualizing alone doesn’t work and why.
    It turns out the real reason why most people can’t attract what they want is because they have limiting beliefs deep rooted in their subconscious minds that’s blocking them from attracting what they want.

    I discovered that i had limiting beliefs about money which were developed from childhood. I grew up with an abusive alcoholic step dad and we were always poor.
    When he was drunk (which was 99% of the time), he used to keep telling me and my younger sister that we would never grow up successful, and that’s how i developed my fears and doubts in obtaining money.

    The writer in the blog explains how to remove those mental blocks which have been stuck with you from childhood and once they are gone, that’s when you’re able to attract what you’ve always struggled to attract in a very short period of time.

    The first time i applied the method, my cake business was getting sales like crazy! The number of customers kept growing and growing until i had to open up another store.
    Now i have multiple locations around the country and i don’t plan to stop expanding.All this would have never happened if i still had those limiting beliefs about money.
    If you want to know how to get rid of those limiting beliefs, here’s the link to that blog post that changed my life many years ago:
