Law of Attraction – The Beginner’s Guide

If you are interested in the spiritual or self-help niches, then you must have heard about the law of attraction one way or the other. 

Law of attraction — the magical pill that promises to fix everything in your life? When somebody hears about the law of attraction for the first time, it seems like a far-fetched (almost delusional) idea. 

The ability to change the course of your life just through the power of your thoughts is fascinating. It intrigues everyone. That’s why we see so many people dedicate their time and effort to learning this amazing concept. 

But is it that easy to create the life of your dreams? If the law of attraction works, why is every person using it not a millionaire already?

These questions might arise in your mind if you have just started with this knowledge.

Also, if you have known about the law for a while, you should know the mistakes you are making that are preventing your manifestations.

Well, this blog post is going to be your answer to everything. I want you to have a sound understanding of the law so that you can start changing your life from this moment onwards. One thought at a time.

So, make sure you give this law of attraction guide a chance to clear your misconceptions and prepare you for creating magic in your life. 

What is the Law of Attraction?

Law of attraction

First things first, let’s try to understand what is the law of attraction. Bear with me for a few moments as I try to explain this concept in the simplest terms so that even a beginner can grasp it easily.

The law of attraction is based on the law of vibration, which states that everything in this universe is made up of energy. Living and breathing or non-living — it doesn’t matter. It’s all energy. So, from your car to the trees, your house plant and your thoughts, it’s all made up of energy. Also, this energy is always vibrating at a certain frequency.

When two vibrations (or frequencies) match, they attract each other. But if they are opposing vibrations, they are going to repel. 

Now comes the most exciting part of the law.

The law of attraction says that you are a magnet. Your thoughts are (to be precise). And they attract or repel other thoughts depending on their underlying vibration.

Once you accumulate a lot of thoughts of the same vibrational frequency, they become a belief, and those beliefs then impact what things, people or experiences you draw into your life.

This is also called manifesting. 

“Watch your thoughts; they become your words; 
watch your words; they become your actions; 
watch your actions; they become your habits; watch your habits, 
they become your character; 
watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

— Lao Tzu

Law of Attraction and Science 

The law of attraction sure sounds great and promising, but a little scientific proof could add more value to the tall claims.

Well, luckily for us, there is scientific proof for this law. 

The law of attraction states that everything is energy, and our thoughts, feelings, and intentions impact matter. This was demonstrated by a French researcher named René Peoc’h.

René’s experiment involved a robot and a flock of chicks in a cage. At first, there were no chicks in the room. The robot was allowed to roam freely as it wanted in the room. Then a cage of chicks was brought into the room. The little chicks imprinted on the robot as if it was their mother. 

Can you guess what happened next?

The robot started spending more time in the area where chicks were kept. Whereas, before the chicks were brought in, it (the robot) was just wandering aimlessly here and there.

So, the desire of the chicks somehow compelled the robot to stay near them.

That is some mind-bending observation, for sure!

If a bunch of chicks can manipulate the robot’s movement, imagine what you can do with your sophisticated thinking faculty. The possibilities are endless! 

How to use the Law of Attraction as a beginner? (the 4-step process)

Now that you know about the law of attraction and the wonders it can do for your life, you must be curious to apply it and see the results for yourself.

Therefore, this blog post section is dedicated to the perfect 4-step method you can use to apply the law of attraction as a beginner. 

Make a decision

First, you must decide to harness your inner powers to bring about the things and circumstances you desire. This means mentally preparing yourself for applying the law. 

The law of attraction works on belief. This includes a belief in the law but, most importantly, a firm belief in your ability to change your life. 

So, the first step is to build your belief through listening to stories of people who have already used the law successfully and by using positive affirmations (I will explain how to do that in just a while, so keep reading).

Choose a specific objective

The next step is to choose what you want to manifest in your life through this amazing law. You must identify a desire that sets your heart on fire and that you really want to experience in your reality.

It can be related to money, love, relationships, health or something else. But make sure it’s specific enough. 

Don’t just say I want to manifest more money; tell the universe what amount you want. 

Use visualization

There are so many tools people use for manifesting their desires, but nothing beats the charm and the efficacy of good old visualization. Especially if you are a complete newbie at the law of attraction, then this should be the first technique you must aim to master. 

Here is how to visualize your desire correctly for quick manifestation:

  1. Find a quiet and calm place where you can be alone for a while (like 10-20 minutes).
  2. Sit down in a comfortable position or lay down.
  3. Close your eyes and let go of the outside world for a while. 
  4. Bring your body and mind to a calm, meditative state by taking a few deep breaths.
  5. Once your mind is calmer and receptive, start visualizing your future as it would look after your desire becomes a reality.
  6. Make a small scene that implies that your desire is now fulfilled.
  7. Feel the feelings of positivity and accomplishment.
  8. Keep visualizing for 5-10 minutes or until you feel satisfied with your vision. 
  9. Then, gently bring your mind back to the present moment and open your eyes when you feel comfortable.

Let go and trust!

The last step sounds so clichéd, but it is incredibly important in making your desire a physical reality. Many people take it for granted, and that’s why they struggle with the law of attraction.

The step is to surrender your desire — fully and completely.

Once you have chosen a desire and visualized it a few times, it’s time to stop obsessing over it and trust that it will come to you through the path of least resistance. 

Surrendering (or letting go) might seem difficult initially, but you will surely get there with practice and patience. 

Putting the Law of Attraction to use

Law of attraction

Now is the time for some powerful law of attraction advice for specific areas of your life. Health, money, and relationships are three areas where I have seen people struggle the most. So, here is some practical advice to help you achieve your goals in these areas of your life. 

Law of Attraction for Manifesting Money

If you want to use the law of attraction to manifest money or improve your financial situation, here are a few tips you must follow.

First, you have to work on creating an abundance mindset. An abundance mindset is when you see money as energy available to everyone (including you). You have to align your energy with that of wealth and riches.

Then, focus on raising your vibration by appreciating the money you already have. 

Money loves high positive vibes and goes where it is appreciated. So, you must consciously inculcate new powerful money beliefs in your mind that will help you feel secure and grateful around money. You can read books, listen to podcasts or sit with people who have a positive attitude towards money.

Lastly, visualize yourself living the life of your dreams often. You must get a taste of the future through your senses so that your mind gets accustomed to the new reality.

Law of Attraction for Health

If you are suffering from an ailment, then practicing the law of attraction is a must. Many people say it works the fastest for health problems because of the mind-body connection.

Regularly visualizing your body in perfect health and vitality is the first thing you should do. Make sure you make it a daily part of your life. Choose a time — ideally, the first thing in the morning or the last thing before going to bed every night.

The next step is to pivot the negative thoughts that remind you of your health problem. 

Whenever you start thinking of the pain, or some worst-case scenario, shift your mind to entertaining some positive thoughts. Or try saying thank you for at least 5 things you can think of at that moment.

This simple trick will instantly shift your focus and vibration.

Law of Attraction for Love & Relationships 

If you want to have an amazing relationship or want to manifest your soulmate, then you must understand one thing — it all starts with you.

You have to work on yourself before allowing another person to become the center of your attention. So, take time to reflect on your strengths and weaknesses. Take action to double down on your strengths and work on your weaknesses.

Once you are the absolute best version of yourself, then it’s the right time to manifest your person.

To manifest love, you must align your energy to the vibration of love and compassion. You can take the help of guided meditations to open your heart center and harmonize your energy. 

5 Tips to Accelerate Your Law of Attraction Powers

Here are a few tips and tricks you can use to powerfully accelerate the process of manifesting and be exceptional at practicing the law of attraction.

Keep your vibration high

The law of attraction works incredibly fast when your thoughts and feelings perfectly align with your desire.

For instance, if you want to create money and abundance in your life, you cannot get there by constantly complaining about your financial situation. That’s a state of “lack”, which would give rise to more circumstances of lack and neediness.

So, instead of figuring out what to feel for each desire, a good rule of thumb is to always think happy and positive thoughts about yourself and your life. Such thoughts will elevate your frequency and prepare you to receive the manifestations.

Spend time in stillness

The mindfulness and meditation space is a burgeoning industry, and there is a reason why so many people invest not only their time but their money and energy as well. 

The reason is that an untrained mind cannot give you a happy life.

Your mind needs to be trained for using its wonderful faculties appropriately, and it’s a pity that modern education teaches it to be analytical but nothing more. There are so many gifts to be explored within the mind other than logic. 

A mind all logic is like a knife all blade,
it makes the hand bleed that uses it.

— Rabindranath Tagore

Those gifts range from basic intuition to complete transcendence, and it goes without saying that they prove to be very important when you are trying to create your reality. 

Start your day on a positive note

Speaking of stillness, there is a time of the day when your mind is naturally calm and open to suggestions. It is when you wake up in the morning. 

Your mind is very receptive to any information you expose it to during this time; therefore, you can intentionally use this time to set the tone for your day. 

Here are a few things to try:

  1. Make sure you don’t read or listen to the news in the morning.
  2. Using the morning time to practice a few minutes of self-reflection.
  3. Deliberately thinking of positive things in the morning to uplift your mood.


Gratitude is one tool that can take your manifesting capabilities from 1 to 1000 overnight. It is that powerful.

But what’s so special about gratitude? You might wonder. 

Gratitude is a vibration shifter. Yes. It shifts your focus from what you don’t have to what you already have. When you focus on what you already have, you are likely to feel a sense of achievement and positivity. These feelings raise your vibration so that you become receptive to magnetizing more amazing things and experiences towards you.

Secondly, gratitude enables you to build a habit of always looking at the glass half full. When you develop this ability, you get the power to discern any life event in a positive way. 

Use Positive Affirmations

A lot of people are good at starting the law of attraction process but eventually get stuck in the loops of negativity and self-doubt. The guilt or regrets from the past and the anxieties about the future add fuel to this problem. So, they need an anchor that can bring them to the present moment and help them think about their life from a different perspective.

Positive affirmations or mantras can be that anchor. 

Positive affirmations are statements that help recondition your mind for positive thoughts and outcomes.

You can keep a bunch of positive affirmations handy at all times and use them whenever you feel overwhelmed by negative emotions. They can be more general, but also quite specific like the ones we have developed in our guides with positive affirmations for students and powerful affirmations for women.

I am super curious about all things spiritual and am a true manifesting enthusiast at heart. When I am not reading about spirituality and maybe especially manifestation, I love writing about it myself.
