The Law of Attraction: Is It Too Good To Be True?
For many people, when they first learn what the Law of Attraction entails, they may think that it is too good to be true. After all, principles can go against what someone grew up believing.
The idea that by focusing your attention on what you want and can manifest is a wonderful sounding concept. Being told that you DO NOT have to fight and be miserable to have the life of your dreams is a dream come true for many.
So the question remains: Is the Law of Attraction too good to be true? And my answer is a resounding NO!
The Law of Attraction is working all the time, all the time. The problem for most people is that they don’t use this power deliberately. And then they focus on what they don’t want or they continue to have negative thoughts and feelings. In turn, negative and miserable experiences occur.
Now take someone who has learned about the Law of Attraction and start applying it in your life. However, they don’t get the results they want. They claim that they are focusing on what they want and are being positive, but they are not getting what they want.
What is happening with that person is that they most likely have unconscious limiting beliefs. They believe that they are doing all the steps correctly, but underneath everything without realizing it, they are still focusing on the lack of negative thoughts and emotions.
And one of the biggest limiting beliefs that I think people have regarding the Law of Attraction is that it IS too good to be true.
How many times in your life have you heard that saying, “Well, if it sounds too good to be true, then it is”? And you’ve probably heard of it on a lot of different topics, like potential partners, jobs, money-making opportunities, etc. My point is that by the time you reach a certain age, chances are you’ve heard that phrase so many times that it is a subconscious limiting belief that you have. Therefore, anything that sounds so wonderful, you will instantly have doubts.
And that may prevent you from using the Law of Attraction as intended.
In other words, it is your belief (unconscious or not) that the Law of Attraction is too good to be true, actually making it your experience of not being good or true.
Remember that the basic principle of the Law of Attraction is that your thoughts create your reality. So if you think it is too good to be true, then for you, the goodness of the Law of Attraction will not come true for you.
When I had this “Aha!” At the moment when perhaps the reason why I didn’t always attract what I wanted into my life was because I had this limiting belief, I immediately changed my mind.
In fact, I decided to coin a new phrase. Instead of “If it sounds too good to be true, then it is”, I now say, “It’s so good it MUST be true.” Just changing my thinking and belief that the Law of Attraction is so good it could only be true then that’s what I experience.
The Law of Attraction is real and when deliberately applied to your life it can make you have everything you have ever wanted. Of course, if you just don’t think it could happen to you, then those are the thoughts you are attracting and your reality will reflect that.
Just as the Law of Gravity always works, so does the Law of Attraction. But it is up to you if you want it to work positively in your life. It really can be done!
