Why The Law of Attraction Isn’t Working for You

Why The Law of Attraction Isn't Working for You

Near the end of 2006, the movie “The Secret” came out. It was a movie that explained the basics of The Law of Attraction by many Law of Attraction teachers. The movie took the world by a storm. Anyone who saw the movie was usually inspired to learn more. This was because the movie was a rather basic, introduction to the Law of Attraction.

The result was that meetup groups popped up all over the world overnight. Everyone wanted to know everything they could about how to “get the Law of Attraction” to work. The energy in these meetings was almost frantic because everyone wanted to know how to manifest what they wanted, and they wanted it now!

Some of these meetings lasted for years. Some didn’t. Some people “got it to work.” Most didn’t. The result was that five years after the movie came out, the Law of Attraction dream was a distant past memory for most.

What happened?

If the Law of Attraction is such an amazing, wonderful thing, why did it almost die out? The answer is that people didn’t fully understand it and they were making mistakes. This article is going to cover why the Law of Attraction isn’t working for you.

First, let’s discuss the flawed premise of this question.

The Flawed Premise

The flawed premise is that the Law of Attraction is something that you get to work for you. It’s not like a magic pill that you take in order to manifest everything you want. It’s a law like the law of gravity (as discussed in a prior article).

In other words, it’s working all the time!

It’s just that you attract both what you do want and what you don’t want based upon what you choose to think and feel about… Explained another way, you get what you think about whether you want it or not. The following explanation may help…

Our “Yes-Based” Universe

We live in a “yes-based” universe. What this means is that WHATEVER you give your attention to, whether it is good or bad, you attract. This is why mother Theresa said that she would never march AGAINST war, but that she would march FOR peace.

And this is why all of the efforts to stop things people don’t like usually back-fire…

This is why the war on drugs doesn’t work. It’s also why the war on teenage pregnancy doesn’t work. Or a war on poverty. Whatever you shout “No!” to, the universe hears “Yes!” This is what is meant by the concept that we live in a “yes-based” universe…

Resistance Explained

This is going to sound too simple. But here goes…

The only thing standing between you and EVERYTHING you want is the resistant thoughts that you have. What’s a resistant thought? A resistant thought is anything that is a negative thought. It doesn’t matter what the negative feeling is – if it’s negative, it’s a resistant thought.

Resistant thoughts can range from the lowest of the feeling emotions like depression and despair, all the way up to better feeling thoughts that are still too resistant. What’s an example of one of those?


Hope is still resistant! It’s not good enough. And most people think (understandably so) that it should be. Hope is lower than belief, and belief is lower than knowing.

If you want to manifest what you want into your life via Law of Attraction, the lowest you can go on this emotional scale is belief. Anything lower than that, and you won’t be able to attract what you want.

That’s a very disconcerting concept really! But it is KEY to “getting Law of Attraction to work” for you! You can’t just hope! You MUST BELIEVE. And when you get this concept, you’ll finally start to manifest whatever you want…

When you truly BELIEVE and start to see things manifest into your life, then you will KNOW how to leverage the power of the Law of Attraction. And when you KNOW, you will then be able to repeat the process over and over again for every subject matter you want – relationships, money, love and health.

ANTS in Your Brain

What are ANTS in your brain?

Automatic Negative ThoughtS

We all have them. The key word here is “automatic.” Sometimes, we have negative thoughts that are so automatic that we don’t even realize it when we have them.

That’s what makes ANTS in your brain so difficult to deal with. How can you stop something like this if you’re not even aware that you’re having them?

You must


The point is that many of us get so used to feeling bad that we think that’s normal. We don’t even realize it.

How do you become more aware of how you’re feeling?

Check in with yourself throughout your day. And when you realize that you’re not feeling good, ask yourself, “what thought(s) did I start thinking that made me feel worse than where I was?”

At first, you may not be able to figure it out. But with practice and time, you’ll be able to figure out what thoughts you started to think that began your downward feeling spiral.

What are some other reasons why you aren’t attracting the life you want?

Regret of the Past

This one is huge. It’s very common, and also difficult to prevent. Usually, we are harder on ourselves than anyone else would be. What’s the answer? Forgive yourself. Forgive yourself and everyone else too. That’s the key to living a life of freedom AND also the key to manifesting whatever you want.

Fear of the Future

Some of use become afraid of the future instead of feeling excited about it.


It’s usually because we have been programmed by society and/or our parents to be afraid. The news constantly tries to make us fearful of the future. Words of doom and gloom are usually pushed onto the public because of some ulterior reason – a reason meant to control and restrict the population.

But don’t worry! Nothing catastrophic is going to happen! For thousands of years man has in one way or another used fear-mongering in order to control the masses. What is the ultimate answer to regretting the past and fearing the future?

Live in the Present Moment

Living in the present moment means really, truly being here in the moment. It means paying close attention to your young child who beams with excited energy to tell you something important. It means listening intently to your lovers words instead of ignoring her while you think about your business projections for the next year.

Life is precious. Appreciate it. Love it. Love everyone and everything and you’ll attract whatever you want easily, quickly, and profoundly.
