Law of Attraction: A Personal Experiment

I have always believed in the Law of Attraction, but in a rather fuzzy sort of way. I have simply known to be true that you get what you expect from life. If you expect good things, you will get good things. If you expect bad things, you will get bad things.

Of course, often you do not realize you were expecting bad things, until after you have attracted them and after you busted through that expectation. Hindsight, as they say, is 20/20.

I could list numerous things in my life in which this was true for me, but the big one that stands out is money. All my life, I believed that money in even the teeniest bit of abundance was something I would never have. It was literally just months ago that I decided I did not want to live by that rule anymore. Since that time, my husband and I have paid off three out of four lines of credit, and have money to spare for our renovations.

As for expecting good things, the most dramatic example is attracting my husband. After a year of having many dating adventures, I decided I was perfectly happy being single for the rest of my life. I was never going to settle like I had in my previous two long term relationship.

I sat down and drew up a detailed list of all the qualities and values a man must have to be my life partner. Two weeks later, in walked Marc. He literally matched every item on my list. We are just about to celebrate our fifth anniversay.

So, yes, I believe in the Law of Attraction in a fuzzy sort of way. But, I have never studied, or followed, it formally.

Until now.

I figure this is a perfect time to conduct a personal Law of Attraction experiment. I have just finalized the Silver & Grace Trilogy: Intutive Mentoring; Store; Jewelry. Time to pump my business up a notch. As well, given all the super cool things my husband and I created in our first five years together, it will be fascinating to see what we can manifest in the next five years.

I have a two stage plan to this experiment. The first is to work my way through the book Law of Attraction, by Michael J. Losier. Then I will work my way through the Advanced Manifestation course from the Hendricks Foundation.

All of this, I am going to share here with you. As always, I would love for you to provide your comments, observations, and personal experiences in the comment section.

If you want to run your own Law of Attraction experiment alongside mine, that would be totally awesome.

The experiment commences!

Let’s Talk

  • Do you believe in the Law of Attraction?
  • Have you formally studied the principles, or is it a more fuzzy approach like mine has been?
  • What example do you have in your life of manifesting something based on your expectations?

  1. Yes, I do believe…no, I have not studied formally. You know the story of Roger…example enough, right? (Of course there is also the time when the washing machine, stove and dishwasher all died at the same time. Found a dishwasher at the scratched and damaged store for $50…the scratch was on the side that went under the counter! My aunt called to ask if I wanted her NEW washing machine as she was moving into assisted living. All this in 24 hours…cool, huh? But wait, it gets better! My neighbor comes over and says, "Well, some of your prayers have been answered, but you still don't have a stove." "Don't worry," says I, "it will come." 12 hours later, friends come to visit. They notice that I am using a small broiler oven to cook with. They ask what is up. I tell them the stove died. They look at each other and say, "Want a stove?" "Sure, I say." I call my neighbor. She laughs and says, "Ya, but will it match the other appliances?" Sure enough, the friends arrive the next day with an almost brand new electric stove in the exact color as the fridge and dishwasher! 'nough said!

    I feel compelled to answer, yes, I do believe in the law of attraction-now. I never studied the principles and always thought couples had to be alike. I never thought as anyone being like me. Because of this, I grew up a late bloomer. I remember whining to my mother that there was no match for me out in the world. I was destined to be an old maid. She would try to hide her amusement at the statement as I was only 17 at the time. Then reassuringly she would tell me, "There's a special someone out there for everyone and when the time is right you'll find each other and be instantly attracted." Who wanted to hear that on a dateless Friday night? As time went on, I concluded that dating wasn't all it was cracked up to be. I was even proposed to (but not by the fellow of my dreams) I even ended up moving away from home to seek out "my life" only to return home, disheartened. Giving up all hope in finding the guy of my dreams anytime soon, I was prepared to join the armed forces. Since my dad was an officer in the Army, I figured I would follow in his path. Then one day, out of the blue, a friend and co-worker of mine, told me about another young man, who worked with us. He swore up and down that I knew exactly who this person was and we lived around the corner from each other. Not recognizing the nickname HE called him, I had no clue it was the brother of a girl who I played with nearly everyday in elementary school. Turns out my friend was telling this young man about me as well. Still not sure who he was talking about, I agreed to meet with him and put to rest this preconceived notion that we knew each other. Needless to say, I recognized the young man immediately and he recognized me. We pointed at each other and instantly broke into laughter. We used to tease each other mercilessly when we were younger and now here we were all grown and being reunited. We reminisced all night about all the times we annoyed each other. He confessed that he teased me because he thought I was…interesting. I then confessed that although he was cute, I thought he was totally obnoxious. He laughed and said, "I think this is going to be a very interesting relationship." That evening was the beginning of us. We were a perfect match. Not that we were alike in any way-we were like opposite poles of two magnets. When I told my mother how I felt about this, she said, "It's usually a good sign that two people complete each other." I always describe us as Ying and Yang. We fit together like hand in glove, and to think I almost married a professional from another state, or almost became a Military officer. Even when we were younger we had always been attracted to one another in a weird, I-don't-like-you,-but-I-think-you're-cute" kinda way. Perhaps it was destiny that we were brought together…hey, you never know what's written in the stars.

  3. Arrr! I too believe in the law of attraction, and I be attracted to frisky women!

  4. Yes, I believe and live the law of attraction every day. I've been interested in it since my former father-in-law gave me one of a series of books by Dr. Joseph Murphy (he was big in the sixties) about 10 or 15 years ago but unfortunately, I can't remember the title of the book. Since then, I've read "The Secret" which is very close to Dr. Murphy's approach. I've also read "The 3 only Things" by Robert Moss who discusses the power of imagination, coincidence and dreams and how all these things work together to provide us with exactly what we need when we need it.

    I've found that when you constantly think in the positive "I already have what I need" mode, it becomes second nature, and the Universe constantly provides you with what you need on a just-in-time basis. However, when there are special things that I want or need, I can amp-up that effect by not only visualizing what I want/need, but also by imagining what I will feel when I have it. The emotional connection seems, for me anyway, to be one of the most powerful components of actively invoking the Law of Attraction. I've used it to attract the man I need in my life – and I used those words because sometimes what we think we want is not what we really need. I did meet a man who was the polar opposite of my ex but who is proving to be quite a challenge to me – being the opposite of the man I lived with for 25 years requires me to change and adapt to a very different kind of relationship which is fulfilling in so many different ways. In essence, my relationship with this man is providing me with the personal growth challenges and opportunities that I knew I had to make but didn't know how to go about.
    I've also had a medical problem over the past month that the doctors I'd been seeing hadn't been able to remedy. After 3 weeks of some pretty intense pain, I'd had enough and went to bed thinking and feeling "Happiness, Harmony, Peace, HEALTH, Wealth, Success and Love". The next morning, I woke up and had a plan that I knew would bear fruit. So I contacted the doctor who was in my head when I woke up, who then referred me to a specialist who gave me an appointment the following day. He ordered an MRI that was scheduled for minutes after I left his office, then, an hour after I left the hospital after the MRI, they called me back in for a second MRI. Shortly after that, I got a call for a Saturday morning appointment with the specialist where I got the results of the first MRI and the treatment plan. The specialist told me that he requested a second MRI and that it would probably be scheduled in a week or so. He was floored when I told him that I'd already had it! He told me to go out and buy some lottery tickets, because getting seen, tested and diagnosed within 24 hours is unheard of in the Quebec health care system. So, I followed his advice and bought some lottery tickets for tonight's draw! We'll see how this works out. The Law of Attraction proves that if you can see it, it's already happened.
