What is the Law of Attraction?
→ The Law of Attraction can be defined as: vibrations of similar frequencies that are magnetized to each other. In essence, one’s thought draws in other thoughts of a similar nature. Simply put, we attract what we give attention to, or what we focus on. If we focus our thoughts on our desires, we can attract them. However, if we focus on not having what we want, we will create obstructions that repel our desires. Beliefs are patterns of thought. We attract experiences that are in alignment with our beliefs. For example, if we desire to attract prosperity, but we believe we are unworthy, then scarcity rather than abundance will become our reality.
