Have You Used the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction was the key teaching in the book and movie “The Secret” that has become a popular way of understanding how to manifest the things you want in your life. Parts of it have merit. For example, focusing your attention on what you want, rather than what you lack, can create the choices, environments and opportunities for those things to come into your life. There is definitely a common sense to it.

You Don’t Always Get What You Want
At the same time, many people feel frustrated as they apply the principles of the Law of Attraction yet seem unable to manifest what they want. It’s here that the Law of Attraction has it limits and has the potential to hold people back rather than help move them forward. Take wanting a new relationship, for example. What part of that desire is coming from feelings of emptiness and insecurity? Are you hoping a new relationship will fill a void? Will finding new love really assuage that anxiety? If you use the Law of Attraction to try and make a relationship happen, and it doesn’t, perhaps there is a deeper message. Maybe life is saying that although this may be what you want, it may not be what you need.
Subconscious vs. Conscious
The truth is we are multilayered beings and our subconscious minds play a huge influence in what happens in our lives. No woman walks down the aisle thinking, “Wow, I’m marrying the archetype of my dysfunctional father who will eventually abandon me and validate my low self-worth,” yet in reality that’s exactly what they may do. Such is the power of our hidden complexes and issues. If a conscious mind wants a thing (a loving relationship), but the subconscious mind doesn’t (a deep belief that they are not worthy of being loved), then this person could become very frustrated. So without an imitate understanding of what patterns and agendas our subconscious is in service to, the Law of Attraction could be an exercise in despondency more than anything else.
Too Focused on the Future
Another potential issue with the Law of Attraction is that it directs our minds and thinking towards the future. Even though you are supposed to imagine your desired outcome to be present now, it’s still a future-focused thinking. If we put energy into creating things we are yet to have, we are projecting ourselves into the future. This mental fast-forward works on the assumption that once the power of the Law of Attraction is harnessed and we attract it into our life, we will then be somehow happier or more content. Yet as many people experience, having their focus on getting what they want, even if accomplished, often fails to bring the feeling and security expected. Rather a new list of things we must have appears to keep us moving on the hamster wheel.
Be Content With What You Have
Instead of focusing on what we want in the future, why not work on being content with what we already have? One of the major challenges to our self-improvement is learning to accept ourselves for who we are. Since the Law of Attraction focuses on manifesting someone or something else, we are indirectly affirming that everything isn’t okay, must change and must be different. Use the Law of Attraction with the awareness that often the greatest treasures in life arrive in packages we first think we don’t want or don’t need.
Embrace Spontaneity and the Unexpected
When you reflect on the most profound moment in your life, you’ll probably find that peace and serenity aren’t actually attached to something you wanted, but when you made peace with what you already had. And some of the greatest events and connections in life haven’t come about because we have been working hard to get them. Rather, they came about spontaneously and unexpectedly. If we allow it to, life is pretty awesome in how it can continue to surprise us.
