The law of attraction is not a new thing. As you will see from the following quotes, people have understood the power of the law of attraction for centuries. Tapping into it can make all your wishes come true.
The law of attraction is the understanding that we can attract into our lives whatever we think about and focus on.
Once we truly believe this, we can begin to tap into the possibilities all around us. As the following law of attraction quotes show, if we find ourselves in situations we don’t like – we have the power to change them, simply by thinking differently.
Unfortunately, many of us block our success with negative thinking. If we do not believe we can have success, love, happiness and abundance, we cannot achieve these things. We often have negative beliefs that inhibit our ability to have all that we desire. Uncovering these blocks and developing beliefs that support us, instead of sabotaging us, can transform our world.
Whatever it is you want to create in your life, if you can first imagine it and create a compelling vision in your mind’s eye – it will only be a matter of time before it is yours.
Anyway, don’t take my word for it. Plenty of wise people have said the same thing in a variety of ways as you can see from the following quotes about the law of attraction.
Quotes from history
“All that we are is a result of what we have thought.”
Buddha was one of the first to understand the law of attraction. He knew the power of human thought to change and transform the world. He also understood that getting a handle on our thought processes is the only way to awaken and get rid of the shackles of the ego. As we can see from this quote, all that we create during our time here on earth begins with our thoughts.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way, you are right.”
~ Henry Ford
Henry Ford was born in 1863 and, despite setbacks, became the founder of the hugely successful Ford Motor Company. This quote shows the powerful effect of what we believe about ourselves.
If we believe we will never be rich, happy, successful and loved, we will be proven right. This is because we are projecting so much negative thought and emotion into the universe. And guess what – it bounces right back at us.
A perfect example of the self-fulfilling prophecy. Luckily, the reverse is also true. If we believe that we can create a life of love, happiness, and abundance, then we can.
Law of attraction quotes about energy
“Everything is energy. You are an energy magnet, so you electrically energize everything to you and electrically energize yourself to everything you want”
~ Rhonda Byrne
Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret explains this further with her quote. It is true that everything is energy, and it is also true that every thought we have creates an energy field. Byrne suggests that energies attract similar energies like magnets attract metal.
So, if we are constantly feeling depressed, angry and dissatisfied, then it is little wonder that we attract more things to feel depressed, angry and dissatisfied about.
“Dreams. They start in your beautiful mind. Think of beautiful things and it will manifest into actions because your body will listen to you. Like it always does.”
~ Diana Rose Morcilla
Diana Rose Morcilla’s quote can point us in the direction of receiving more of what we wish for in our lives. It doesn’t actually take much effort to dream up a better life. It is also very enjoyable to imagine all that we want to receive and feel the good sensations that come with such pleasurable dreams.
Resisting the temptation to get lost in negative thought can sometimes be hard. However, making some time to dream up some positive outcomes in our life can at least counter-balance that negativity and start a positive spiral that can change our lives.
“When you change what you believe, you change what you do… which changes what you get.”
~ Odille Rault
Odille’s quote neatly brings us on to the role of action in the law of attraction. Many people have pointed out that simply sitting around thinking about being rich or successful is unlikely to make much difference.
We need to take action. But by focusing on the law of attraction, we get our thinking right first. This leads us to take different actions from those we would if we were in a pit of negativity.
Taking action from a place of self-belief and positivity is a better way to achieve all that we want than reacting to negative situations and attempting to avoid problems.
Law of attraction quotes about love and gratitude
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
~ Oprah Winfrey
Oprah’s simple quote reminds us of another vital aspect of the law of attraction – gratitude. If we fail to appreciate all that we have, and instead bemoan all that is lacking, then guess what we receive more of? Lack! Sending out grateful and appreciative energy to the universe causes more things to be grateful for to return to us.
“We need more than just the Law of Attraction. We need to connect with its more successful twin, the Law of Generosity. And further, entwine ourselves with their parent; the Law of Love.”
― Steve Maraboli
Steve’s quote leads us on to consider one of the most powerful forces in our world – love. Love has the power to drive out fear, hate and anger. It has the ability to spread compassion and caring to a world in need.
When we feel loving, there is no room in our hearts and souls for the negative emotions to take root. If we do nothing else to change our lives, then feeling and expressing love would be enough to transform us and our reality.
These quotes make the law of attraction seem too good to be true. But there are actually sound reasons to let go of negative thinking and focus on positive emotions such as gratitude and love. Positive Psychology studies have suggested that this can lead to a happier life.
In addition, the idea of visualising something in order to make it happen has been researched. Sports psychologists, in particular, are great believers in encouraging sportspeople to envision the outcomes they want. They have done experiments that prove that the same areas of the brain fire when we imagine something as when we experience it for real.
So perhaps, at its most basic, the law of attraction is simply the law of practice. And by practising and preparing for success, we are more likely to make it happen.
