Working with the Laws of Attraction

Does the Law of Attraction really work? 

Yes, it does! It is a universal law that works whether you believe it does or not. 

I was thinking about how best to describe how this Law of Attraction works.  

Gravity is a universal law that works whether we believe it or not.   We know that gravity is like a form of magnet in that it is what enables us to stand on the earth.  In fact, it’s what keeps us from floating off the earth.  Because we know about gravity and how it works, humankind has learned how to use gravity, or work with it or in spite of it to create things like elevators and airplanes and rocket ships. 

In this article I briefly explain how the Law of Attraction works and share with you ways you can benefit from this universal law.  

When I studied coaching and the Law of Attraction, I learned a number of other universal laws.  

Knowing and understanding these other laws will help you get the benefits of the Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction works – all the time.  What do you know about how this law works?  I learned that,“I get what I focus my attention on.”

Other definitions include:

“That which is like onto itself is drawn.”Jerry and Esther Hicks, Ask and It is Given, The Teachings of Abraham.

“I attract to my life whatever I give my attention, energy, and focus to, whether positive or negative.”Michael J. Losier, Author, Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction gives you what you focus your attention and energy on.  A lot of people think about how they want or need more money, or a life partner, or a new car.  And when they don’t get it, they dismiss it and say "the Law of Attraction doesn’t work."

But if they were to journal their thoughts and actions about the money or the life partner, or whatever it is they don’t have they will realize that their attention and energy is on what they don’t have.  And that is what they get.  What they focus on. 

I often talk about how you can make the Law of Attraction work for you by invoking the Law of Deliberate Creation- consciously putting your attention on what you want often and with feeling.  Affirmations help the Law of Deliberate Creation focus your attention. 

The next law I focus on is the Law of Allowing.  This law has two parts: 1) Allowing yourself to accept more good in your life.  Sadly many people are not even able to accept a compliment; or ask for help even when they need it.  2) Allowing other people to be who they are as they are.  This is difficult because people see things from their own perspective and often judged others as needing to change.  

The fourth law I usually refer to is the Law of Detachment.  Let go of the how you will get what you want.  “Let go and let God” is a common suggestion.  In the Passion Test the formula for living a passionate life (getting what you want) is Intention, Attention, No Tension.  

Know what you want, give it your attention and action, doing whatever you can think of to make it happen, then No Tension – Let go and let it happen as it will. The understanding is that God, or the powers that be can provide even better than we can think of.

These methods will get the Law of Attraction giving you what you want, faster and easier if you are aware of and understand the next three laws:

The Law of Sufficiency and Abundance

There is more than enough for everyone.  Were you taught that?  I wasnn't!  I was taught that there was never enough.  When you learn there is never enough you look at what you want and think I can’t have that because. . . it’s too expensive, or it’s not available, or I can’t have it. 

When you understand that there is more than enough, and that you can have it you begin to open yourself to the possibility that maybe you can have what you want.  Believing you can have something makes it easier to focus your attention on it – focused attention equals attraction.

The Law of Pure Potential

Our essential state of being is pure consciousness.  Pure Consciousness is pure potentiality which is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity.  We are one with the field of universal energy. Knowing this gives us the ability to make our dreams come true.

All of us?  Yes, because understanding that we are one with the field of universal energy we know that our strength and possibility is within us.  

Sadly, when we don’t believe this, we give away our power to things outside of us – usually based on fears.  The fears of failure or success; of approval or judgement; of pain or loss leave us feeling impotent and unable to take the actions to attract our passions.

The Law of Pure Potential tells us we have the ability and creativity to create the life we want.  We need to believe it for it to work so we can focus our attention and believing in the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance and the Law of Pure Potential makes attraction easier.

The Law of Polarity

The full spectrum of possibilities, the Law of Polarity tells us that everything exists in duality.  This means we cannot have a positive without a negative.  This is backed up by the scientific quote that says, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

So we have hot and cold; hard and soft; success and failure.  While they appear to be separate, hot and cold are opposite ends of the same thing - temperature.  Hard and soft opposite ends of texture. Success and failure opposite ends of accomplishment.  In each case they are actually two inseparable parts of the same thing.  We cannot have one without the other.

Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich said,

“Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time.
One or the other must dominate.  

It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind.”

We often find ourselves focusing on the negative aspect of something that we have no control over. Yet, with our power of thinking, we can change how we view any situation by understanding that there is a positive to that negativity.  Knowing this way we can begin to think our way up the polarity towards the positive end.  One way to do that is to remember that negative thoughts lead to negative events.  Focus instead on what you want.  Focus on abundance.


The Law of Attraction works all the time.  Be aware of what you are focusing your energy and attention on. 

Clarify what it is you want and use the Law of Deliberate Creation to consciously focus on that with emotion. Avoid thinking about what you don’t have.  

Use the Law of Allowing to welcome good into your life, including compliments and help.  

Then listen to the Law of Detachment and detach from the outcome.

Understand and use these three other Universal Laws and you will be better able to focus on what you want instead of what you don’t have.

  • The Law of Sufficiency and Abundance:  there is more than enough for all
  • The Law of Pure Potentiality:  Everything you need to get what you want is within you.
  • The Law of Polarity: Everything exists in duality including Success/Failure.  To move from failure to success, learn from the negative polarity, put your attention on the positive polarity and take action to make it happen. 

The Law of Attraction always works.  What you get, depends on on what you focus on.  Use these other universal laws to work with the Law of Attraction and start attracting what you want.
