The Universal Law of Attraction

The Universal Law of Attraction is an integral part of our lives.  Using this Law, together with 2 other Laws, is how we create everything in our life—from our friend calling us just when we were thinking of her to the promotion we wanted to our perfect mate. 

We hold the power to create anything we desire

Universal Laws Defined

Below are definitions for the Universal Law of Attraction and 2 other Universal Laws that, together, form the creation process.  The source of these definitions is the book, The Law of Attraction, The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, 2006. 

Law of Attraction: “That which is like unto itself, is drawn.”

Science of Deliberate Creation: “That which I give thought to and that which I believe or expect—is."

Art of Allowing: “I am that which I am, and I am willing to allow all others to be that which they are.”

The Universal Law of Attraction seems straightforward—like attracts like.  What are the other two Universal Laws saying?  Read on! 

It Begins with the Universal Law of Attraction

Each of these laws by itself is powerful.  Woven together, they become a beautiful, eloquent system of creation.  When we use the system as is intended, we become a powerful magnet for obtaining what we desire.  Below are the steps for creation, as I have interpreted them: 

(1) Law of Attraction—This law is the actual vehicle for creation.  Like thoughts attract like thoughts.  For example, if we think thoughts of having abundant prosperity, those thoughts will attract other thoughts of abundant prosperity. 

(2) Law of Science of Deliberate Creation—This law is the guidance system of the creation process.  If we didn’t have some control over the Law of Attraction, there would be absolute chaos in our world.  We have thousands of thoughts per day (somewhere around 60,000).  Many of these thoughts come and go so quickly, we don’t even register them.  If everything we thought manifested, objects and situations would be popping into existence so fast we couldn’t handle them before the next thing popped in.  Sounds a bit scary, doesn’t it?

So, Deliberate Creation provides the control for the creation process, by instructing us to focus our thought on what we really want and enhance it with powerful emotions.  For example, if we really focus our thoughts on abundant prosperity and choose to feel powerful emotions, such as gratitude and joy, about what our life will be like with that abundant prosperity, it will bring our creation of abundant prosperity up to the point where it is primed and ready for delivery. 

(3) Law of Art of Allowing—This law is the delivery system for our creation.  We use this Law by releasing our need to control the situation, allowing the Universe to determine how our creation will come to us and expecting our creation to manifest. 

It may not seem like this law would make much of a difference.  Let me tell you from personal experience that it makes all the difference!  This Law has tripped me up more than either of the other Laws.  It was easy to think about what was desired and even easy to feel grateful and joyful about what life would be like when it was received.  However, where I cancelled out the receiving of my creation was in trying to determine the details of how it would come to me and/or in telling myself that it probably wouldn’t happen anyway!  In other words, my thoughts were at another vibrational frequency than what I desired, and I cancelled out my creation.  A rather important Law, then, wouldn’t you agree?  After all, creating something is much better when you actually get it, isn’t it?

Another way to interpret the Art of Allowing is to realize that “allowing” also means that we keep our energy frequencies at high levels (or by feeling positive emotions) and at the same level as the creation we desire to bring to us.

Have you noticed what else this means?  We have circled around again to like attracts like, or the Universal Law of Attraction.  The creation process is a complete circle that goes around again and again.  To keep creating new things that we desire, all we need to do is stay in the circle!

For a deeper understanding of the Universal Laws, The Law of Attraction, The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham, and other books by Esther and Jerry Hicks are excellent resources.  Happy creating!
