The Law of Attraction has been around since the dawn of time, and recently, a lot of attention has been given to this particular law. And that's a very good thing! It is encouraging to see so many people awakening and learning to tap into their own power (and the universal power), and so many choosing to take charge of their own lives.

If you have yet to hear about the Law of Attraction, allow me to give you a very simple crash course. The Law of Attraction encourages the acts of meditation and manifestation. It suggests that by asking for what you desire, focusing on it as if it is already yours, and showing thankfulness, that you can attract that blessing into your life. But here's the key: you have to train yourself to reach a state of gratitude. That means that you live in a flow state of gratitude, finding thankfulness in everything - even the mundane.

If you, like so many others right now, are struggling to find things to be thankful for, start with the most basic of things.

Do you have clean water to drink and wash your dishes and do your laundry with? If so, then you should give thanks. Does that water get warm so that you can reeeeeally enjoy that shower? If so, then that's even more reason for you to give thanks. If you have a bed to sleep in, a roof over your head, clothes on your back, or any single person in your life who shows you love, then these are all things that you should add to your list of gratitude.

The more gratitude that you put out into the Universe, the more blessings that will be given to you. Then you get to show your appreciation all over again! That's the very nature of the Law of Attraction. It states that by putting good stuff out there (and into our holy vessels), that we attract more of those good things to us. Alternatively, by focusing, stressing over, and worrying about the bad - then more negativity we attract to ourselves.

To think of it simply, imagine that God (or your Higher Being) is listening to every thought you have, as if it is a prayer. If you are constantly thinking, "Well, there's another bill that can't be paid this month", then guess what will happen. Month after month after month there will be yet another bill that you don't have the funds to pay. However, if you change your mindset and your thinking to gratitude, something different will flow into your life. Even if you don't have the funds right now, in this moment, to pay that bill, still shift yourself into a place where you can be thankful for all the bills you have been able to pay in the past, and give thanks that the money will miraculously show up to cover this bill too.

If you think this is a whole bunch of mularkey, what harm does it cause to simply try to implement this law into your life for just one month to see if it brings about changes in your life? It takes minimal time, a whole lot of focus, a whole lot of intention, and a bit of effort and discipline. But I assure you, even if you are in a place of doubt today, if you just step out and make this one shift in your life, you will be amazed at the blessings you set yourself up to receive.

The Law of Attraction in Action

Personally, I have seen the Law of Attraction work for myself, and for others, time and time again. Sometimes this has been in the smallest of ways. Yet on other occasions, it has changed the course and the outcome of lives.

A minor example would be the way that I see the Law of Attraction play out in the lives of my twin nieces. Most of the adults that surround them work diligently to instill gratitude in them and to teach them to always be thankful for everything. Thus, they walk around being grateful for everything and quite regularly receive gifts that they want, but were not necessarily expecting.

Just a couple of days ago, we went into a Cracker Barrel that was filled with toys they both wanted. I knew I had a certain amount of money that I was willing to spend on gifts and told each of them to go pick out what they wanted and to be as thankful as they could that it was their's, even if it wasn't in their possession yet.

Hope ran around thanking dozens of items for coming home with her and whispering to the toys how much she loved them and appreciated that they chose her to come live with. Adeline, however, had a clear picture in mind of just what it was that she wanted and knew that she needed to stay within a budget. So she picked her two very favorite things, walked over to them, and spent about five minutes thanking those two items for coming home with her and thanking me for loving her and buying her prizes (even though I hadn't purchased a single thing yet).

In the end, Adeline got both of the gifts she wanted, and Hope got three gifts! It wasn't my intention to get one of them more gifts than the other. In fact, my plan was to take Hope's third gift up to the counter and to ask the sales lady to restock the item. However, I ended up getting distracted and the words never made it out of my mouth, so Hope's third gift slipped through the cracks and ended up in the bag.

This is just the latest example of something that happens very regularly in their lives. Because Adeline limits herself, she receives limited blessings that are typically valued higher than the blessings that Hope receives. And because Hope puts no limitations on what she desires, she regularly receives more gifts, even though the total cost of their gifts averages out to around the same price.

Because Hope places a higher value on quantity, she usually receives more blessings. But because Adeline places a higher value on worth, she usually receives blessings that hold more value. And they are both are always grateful for the blessings they receive, rather than being envious of the blessings that came the other sister's way.

Again, this is just a very minor example of how easily even a child can implement the Law of Attraction into their lives.

Healing and The Law of Attraction

On a larger scale, I have seen people completely healed of ailments and diseases when the two of us aligned together in a state of gratitude. I'm talking full and complete, total healing. On the other hand, I have laid hands on people for hours and spoken gratitude, healing, and love over them for nothing to change. Why? Because the person who was receiving prayer was in a state of doubt or fear or anger or depression, or any other state that directly worked against the state I was in. That sends mixed signals to the Universe, and it doesn't bode well for the person who needs healing if their thoughts are drawing more sickness to themselves.

When my mother's husband, the man who raised me, was in the hospital with a rare form of oral cancer, they received a major blessing. Five different doctors had verified Jacob's results over the span of a couple of months, and he was scheduled to have his surgery. All the while, my mother spoke healing and blessings over him. She insisted that he had to reach a state where he fully believed that he was receiving healing of this cancer, by any means necessary. On the day that he went in to have the surgery to remove the cancer, the doctor did his final scans before the procedure.

The results? The cancer had mysteriously vanished from his body, completely, and there were no signs that it was ever there!

About ten years later, Jacob fell gravely ill. His pulse-ox was so low that the doctors didn't know how he was alive and breathing on his own. Every scan of his lungs showed a foreign invader that was spreading at a rapid rate. No doctor, anywhere, had ever seen this illness. Within the first week, hundreds of doctors across the entire globe were studying Jacob's case to see what they could learn about his new illness. Yet, as the days passed, his situation got worse, and no answers were found.

I was convinced he was going to die. My sister was convinced that he was going to die. My step-sister was convinced that he was going to die. My step-brother was convinced that he was going to die. The doctors were convinced that he was going to die.

In fact, at the end of two weeks, things had become so hopeless that the Red Cross flew out to the middle of the Mediterranean, where my step-brother was stationed at the time, to fly him back home to spend some time with his father during the last 24 hours he was given to live.

By the time we got down to 12 hours, we knew time was ticking and that we needed to say our goodbyes to Jacob. The four of us went up to the hospital to tearfully say our goodbyes, and my Mom flipped the switch. She refused to let anyone come into the room, informed us that Jacob had a dream that we needed to pray for him, and demanded that we all go to church.

We argued. We complained. Then we listened to my mom and went to church.

It's important to note, at this point, that in the midst of our doubt and grief, that my mother never wavered. She sat by his bed for the entirety of those two weeks and spoke blessings, prayers, love, and healing over him. Even when all she could see was what looked like her husband to be very clearly dying before her eyes, she gave thanks for the time she had with him and for his healing. She would get angry with us anytime that we agreed with his illness and would beg us to align with her and pray for him and believe that his healing was coming.
