Make the Law of Attraction Work for You
This is the fourth of twelve articles about the Universal Laws. This one is focused on The Law of Attraction, and creating art as a spiritual practice.
The Law of Attraction is a Universal Law that is now widely recognized. It is well-known because of a book titled The Secret that was released in 2006.
The Law of Attraction states that: the level of your vibration attracts circumstances, experiences, and people of like vibration.
In her book, The Secret, Rhonda Byrne cites a three-step process: ask, believe, and receive. The Bible quotation from Matthew 21:22 was an influence for the book: “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Wallace Wattles’ 1910 book, The Science of Getting Rich was another powerful influence for The Secret. Byrne’s book features many co-authors who highlight the importance of gratitude and visualization in achieving one’s desires.
Compelling examples are cited of manifesting fulfillment, greater happiness, true love, excellent health, creative expression, and abundance by bringing oneself into vibrational harmony through the creative power of thoughts.
The reason so many people are fascinated by this law is that, at its essence, this law is all about manifesting your deepest desires.
I have had some amazing manifestation experiences where I dared to dream and get specific about what I really wanted and I have seen my deepest desires come to life. For example, wanting to move west to the mountains. Becoming a meditation coach, artist, and author. And creating spiritual art.
One member of our Soul Artist Tribe is so skilled at manifesting, we jokingly refer to her as our CMO; Chief Manifestation Officer.
In my Soul Artist Experience series of classes, we explore manifestation by creating spiritual art. These include learning how to harness the Universal Laws and developing our imagination skills. It is fulfilling to share our dreams within our community. Hearing from our nurturing, supportive partners on our private Facebook page and in our regularly scheduled Zoom calls gives us new perspectives and additional ideas to support the manifestation process.
Each Soul Artist in my classes creates art journal pages.
Using mixed media techniques such as assemblage, quotes, collage, vision board pages, affirmations, poetry, and their own original designs they illustrate their insights, making creativity a spiritual practice.
Our art journal work is all about the process of creating. The end result, while fun to achieve, is not the most important part. As we create each page, we deeply explore the concept we are learning, such as how to make the Law of Attraction work for you. Visual imagery helps us more fully retain the salient points in each lesson.
Our insights are captured within our art journals, which become treasured possessions because the work included in them is deeply personal.
Law of Attraction art journal pages can be as differentiated as each artist’s desires. For instance, attracting one’s birds of a feather. We experience the concept that focusing on your thoughts and emotions can raise your vibration, and attract things that vibrate on the same level.
“Imagination is everything; it is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein
The Law of Attraction shows us; if we can imagine it, we can manifest it. The teaching explains that what we believe we can receive, we do receive. As an illustration, if we believe in scarcity or lack, that’s what we experience. This is because the belief in scarcity generates a vibrational frequency that says; ‘bring me more of this experience of lack.’ Conversely, if we believe in abundance, we experience abundance. When you notice the abundance you already have in your life, you attract to you more of those positive feelings and a wonderful thing takes place; even more, abundance manifests.
One of my favorite books is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The advice given to Santiago in the book embodies the Law of Attraction. “when you really want something to happen, the whole universe will conspire so that your wish comes true.
The philosophy and motif that plays throughout The Alchemist is the essence of the Law of Attraction; we are in partnership with the universe in the joyous creation of our lives.
This law says that we draw to us or attract energies similar to our own. This notion is often illustrated as Birds of a Feather Flock Together.
One way to make the Law of Attraction work for you is by thinking positive thoughts. This attracts more positivity; like attracts like. What you think about, you tend to bring about. Every thought, emotion, or mental state has a corresponding vibration. Health, abundance, love, and joy are high vibrations. These begin to flow to you when you radiate them. And you will begin to attract more birds of a feather who vibrate similarly to you.
Our faith or belief powers our intentions and fuels the manifestation process.
What we think and deeply feel is reflected back to us in our physical world. Believe you have an abundant life, (even if you start by just imagining it); and so shall it present itself in your physical reality.
We practice manifestation in our art journal pages. First, we imagine our deepest desires about abundance. Then, similar to creating a vision board, we choose words and images that represent our abundant life and add those to our art journal page. These pages are not expected to be fine art. A simple sketch or an image torn from a magazine and pasted in is typical. Many pages are collaged with words, images, poetry, and quotes.
Some Soul Artists add gratitude-filled affirmations that presume the desired state is already beginning to manifest, propelling them toward the zone where anything is possible.
Spiritual art pages like these help us visualize our dreams and welcome in our new, ideal reality.
