A Guide to The Law of Attraction

So, you have probably heard someone talk about manifestation, or “what you give is what you get”. The idea of getting back what you put out is considered The Law of Attraction. There are so many different routes in trying to explain The Law of Attraction, but let’s try to break it down into some simple, easy steps and ways you can incorporate it into your own life and your own needs during college.


So, what is The Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction is “The belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life”

This basically states that what you think and say and put out into the universe is what you will receive back into your life. Kind of like the idea of “karma” or “what goes around comes around” but in more of a specific and tailored way.


#1: Practice Positive Language

Altering your language and thinking in positive thought patterns can drastically change how you perceive life and what you get out of it.

Think: “I don’t want to be in my house anymore” vs. “I will go out and experience new places more” See how different that feels? Practice using the phrases “I can” and “I will” rather than, “I want to” or “I have to.” Be intentional, focus on what you do like about your life and not what don’t like about your life.

*The LoA is about expanding what you already have and building upon what your life has already given you*


#2: Put Your Intentions Out There

If you want something out of life you have to let the universe know you want that. If you put out good into the world, it will be brought back to you.

If people know what you want and know your intentions, it’ll become a part of who you are. Allowing yourself to be specific and upfront about what you want in your life will allow it to become part of your mindset. But you have to really commit, you have to believe what you want to happen will happen.

For example, let’s start with something simple. Let’s say you really want a new car, but it is a bit of a reach for you at the moment. To apply the LoA to this situation, you need to start making this your priority. Tell yourself that you WILL get this car and it will happen. When this statement is ingrained into your mind, you will start automatically doing things to help get you to this goal.

Money you save, and decisions you make will eventually turn into you doing what you need to do to get that dream car, or whatever it may be. The LoA is all just setting your intentions straight and believing in those intentions working.


#3: Be Grateful for What You Already Have

Believe it or not, you have probably already been manifesting things into your life since you were little. Think about your friends, your university, your boyfriend/girlfriend, anything good you have in your life.

In some subconscious way, you have probably always wanted what you have right now. Just talking to your friends, making a Pinterest board, or even writing it down somewhere is what manifesting is all about.


Now that you know what The Law of Attraction is, it’s time to go put it to use!
