Most of us have been taught from an early age that we can only achieve what we want in life through hard work and struggle or being born into the right family.

Understandably, then, the law of attraction raises some skepticism—especially among pragmatists.

You just think about something and then it happens? Yeah, right!

By the same token, those eager to try the law of attraction for the first time might be disappointed when they don’t immediately end up with a mansion and Ferrari.

The thing to keep in mind is that the law of attraction is not about laziness nor is it about empty materialism.

So what is it, then?

It’s about aligning your energies with your true purpose.

This requires some deep soul-searching and focus on your part.

It’s about taking advantage of opportunities when they come your way.

You see, if you have any doubt in your mind that you will be able to achieve your goals, you become blind to opportunities.

Let’s say you want to break into the fashion industry. You strike up a casual conversation with an individual who, unbeknownst to you, happens to be a major designer. If you followed your intuition, you would find a way to slip your fashion aspirations into the conversation. The majority of us would never bring it up, though. Even if the thought occurred to us, we’d tear ourselves down: “Why would this person care?”

Similarly, if you’re too complacent and simply expect your desires to fall into your lap, you won’t put in the necessary effort to spot and take advantage of these opportunities.

Both critics and those who have become disillusioned with the law of attraction tend to oversimplify it.

They interpret it to mean that good things happen to people who think happy thoughts while bad things happen to pessimists.

The truth is, the majority of our experiences are influenced by subconscious beliefs and buried emotions.

Our childhood memories, the people we surround ourselves with, and the information we are exposed to daily all play a role in our inner world and external reality.

In most cases, simply reciting positive affirmations isn’t enough.

Here’s the good news.

The law of attraction is real and you do have the power to create your reality.

It just works in subtler ways that you may have initially thought.

Once you’ve learned how to release the mental baggage obstructing your growth and more effectively channel your energy, you’ll find that your life is richer and more satisfying than you could have ever envisioned.

According to Alexander Loyd, bestselling author of The Healing Code, the Release Technique “enables you to rid yourself of any negative emotions easily and painlessly and puts you in touch with your most successful self. “

Yes, the gorgeous homes and fancy cars might be added bonuses once you have mastered the law of attraction—but what you experience along the way is so much more than that.

You’ll feel engaged and at peace with the world around you, forging meaningful connections.
