The Law of Attraction: Does It Really Work?

The Law of Attraction: Does It Really Work?

Do you think you can change your life just through positive thoughts? Well, you can.


The law of attraction has been in the news lately and has been gaining a lot of popularity. Personally, I have just started practicing this law and incorporating it into my life. I am here to talk about my experience so far with the law of attraction and what I have personally learned from it.

I have just started practicing the law of attraction about a month ago and I can already feel my life changing from it and my perception. So, it has been working for me. I have manifested a lot of new things in my life, and they have all benefited me.

If you don't know or have never even heard of the law of attraction, here is the definition. The law of attraction is defined by Wikipedia as "the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person's life".

What this has meant to me and my life is that you really can manifest anything and everything in your life (within limits, of course). If you believe something positive/negative will happen to you/ you want something positive to happen to you, you can manifest it if that is what the Universe believe is good for you.

For example, if you truly do think that you are going to go to work today and you are going to have an awful time, you ARE going to have an awful time. However, if you believe today will not be bad and you will have a good day at work, you WILL have a good day at work. You are in charge of the type of day you have every day, and the law of attraction is behind that statement.

Another thing the law of attraction can do is manifest certain things into your life. For example, if you want to manifest a potential relationship/ love into your life, you can do that through this law.

One thing to note before I get into the process. If you do the whole process and do everything correctly and you do not see anything that you wanted to happen, this means that the Universe did not see it benefiting you and it did not want to give it to you. If this does happen, you want to review the thing you asked for and see if you really do need this in your life. If you do realize you don't need this thing, I suggest thanking the Universe for enlightening you. If you do think you still want this thing/ it is not selfish/ it would benefit you in the long run, repeat the process.

My process differentiates for the different things I want to manifest in my life. For example, let's say I want to manifest love into my life like I just talked about. The first step I would take is clearing my mind of all negative thoughts. The way I do this is through meditation. I meditate for about 10-15 minutes to start off my process.

The next step I take is to find questions that the Universe would like to know the answer to. If you just google "Law of Attraction" and the thing you want to manifest, you will find a bunch. You can also answer any other questions you think should be answered. You want to not only ask the question but answer the question out loud so you do put it out into the Universe. This is a pivotal part of the process.

The last step is to conclude your session. The way I do this is that I review what it is that I want to manifest and why I deserve it in my life/ how I believe it would benefit my life in the long run. After that, I would thank the Universe for picking up my signals that I put out and thank it for listening. Once again, don't forget to do this out loud.

The last thing that I want to put out there is that this is a solo practice. What that means to me is that any process could work for any person. My process has been working for me, but if you want to do something different that you think would work for you, you can do that. At the end of the day, this law is set up to benefit you and your mindset.

When God Says, “Not Right Now.”

“God give me faith to wait and not manipulate. To trust You fully, no matter how my circumstances may appear." — Lynn Cowell


One of the most frustrating yet beautiful things is when God tells us “no" or “not right now."

At the time, you may have agony or desperation for this one thing to work out in your life, but it slips away from you. You may ask God why. Why does He want you to be unhappy? Why does He want to take away your dreams?

At the time, you cannot see how much God truly is working in your life, but He is. In my life, every time that I was disappointed that a plan or dream didn't work out, I was devastated. I didn't want to be in a position where I was challenged and tested. I wanted all the blessings to flow and to fulfill what I thought was my plan in life. But that's exactly what it was: my plan.

I did not see at the time that that is not what God intended for me and that He actually had far greater plans than I did for myself. He needed to mold me into who I am supposed to be today. Along the way I have met the most amazing people that have had a huge impact on my life, have gone through the most amazing experiences with God, and I wouldn't trade going through all the trials because it has truly made me into the woman I am today.

“What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for." – John Ortberg

God is continually, endlessly, working in our lives.

We may not see it, but He is. We may blame God for all the things that are going wrong in our lives, but we never see that in the end, we were supposed to go through the low valleys to get to the high, amazing, and beautiful mountains in our lives.

I truly believe that it's when you're at the bottom of the darkest pit in your life that you can actually see the light of God shining brightly upon you. During these times, pray to Him to lead you to understanding that this is all a part of His plan for you.

It hurts God to see that His child is suffering, but in order to carve out just the person that you are supposed to be, you must go through challenges. Where you are today is no accident. God is using the challenge you are in to shape you and prepare you for the place He wants you tomorrow. When it comes to God's plan, timing is absolutely everything.

Looking back on all the events that I had to endure before getting to where I am now, I know that I had to go through the trials in order to be just who I am today, which is happier than I have ever been because I know God and His plan for me. Waiting is the most difficult job of hope, but you must remain faithful and know that God is guiding you.

“When I wait, you strengthen my heart." Psalm 27:14

When you are waiting for God's righteous plan, don't lose faith in His goodness. He only wants the best for you, and in the end, you will look back and see just how much He truly was working in your life. Be patient and the blessings will flow.

Poetry On Odyssey: Ego

Years later, we can still learn something about ourselves and our morality from Freud.


I'm studying Freud now for maybe the 5th time

So I'm familiarized with his notorious line

It starts off as ID, ending at SuperEgo

Which helps you gauge if you're good, and hopefully not evil

It's the impossible goal to balance Ego in the middle

I think back on myself, trying so hard to fiddle

The morality dial to a place to that felt right

Where my mind was peace and my soul could feel light

I think now that I've made it, but I hadn't at first

So my earlier years were understandably the worst

My first day of grade school I was instantly smitten

Well aware that my guidelines had already been written

I was taught that fulfillment could be found in God's Word

His love the incentive with which I was lured

But she was just so damn sweet, with long hair and dark eyes

I hated myself for thinking same as the guys

Adam would never have lain down with a man

So to make it to Heaven, she was not in the plan

Later in life I was leaving high school

Taking dick, smoking pot and breaking rules to look cool

When on a contemplative car ride one night with my friend

My SuperEgo delusion came to a startling end

I asked, "Have you ever felt like you were missing a penis before?"

Her expression told me not to bring that up anymore

That night sent me deep into a pit of self loathing

I could pass as pure to my church, but felt absolutely nothing

I was shrink wrapped in guilt for the secrets I held

Taught that my kind were all children of the Angel that Fell

I felt I had failed, too wrapped up in desire

Postmarked now for down under as a fag, tranny and liar

Even though I would spend just two more years with God's son

I had denied who I was till the damage was done

All those times that I'd judged queer folks with disgust

Held me down like a freight train infested with rust

I internalized all the hatred I'd spread

Every comment placed pea-like in my soft Christian bed

That was the past, I breath easier now

But not without finding my "who" and my "how"

The person I'm now is so earthquakingly free

I mourn the years without girlfriends and the pronouns "him/he"

Pretty Boy is all honest, and that's pretty much "how"

I was able to end up at "who" I am now

It seems that its easy to find your Ego on the line

When your ID and your Super are authentically defined

But not by a god or a priest or a book

Right and wrong will come out if you're willing to look
