What is the difference between laws of attraction and manifestation?
The difference is the relationship between cause and effect. You can engage in the law of attraction in several ways to manifest (cause) your dreams and goals (effect). My most simple example is that if you look for the positivity in all situations, you will find it. And THAT can manifest the changes you wish to have in your life. But wait . . there is more!
Understanding this universal principle doesn't mean that you'll never have problems. Stuff happens continuously to everyone, but some people use that information for their benefit, while others sit a wallow in their bad luck.
Those people tend to attract the negative more frequently than others do. Is that just because they're unlucky or is it because they think they're unlucky and this negative thought subconsciously works to prove themselves right?
In a nutshell, these are the law of attraction steps to take when manifesting what you want. In our understanding the law of attraction and manifestation we are talking about like attracting like. The concept may seem simple, but there's far more to it than that. It means you can have control over your future happiness if you take responsibility for many of the elements of your life.
1 - What you focus on is what you see around you and what you see around you dictates how you'll act and ultimately the way your life will turn out.
It is important to understand how positive thoughts and negative thoughts are both utilizing the law attraction in your life. If you believe everyone hates you, you'll see it everywhere you go. Everything others say and do will be taken negatively to reaffirm your belief and you'll respond in kind. Ultimately, what you believe in your subconscious mind.... that others hate you.... will become a reality. Some people thrive on self-pity and seem to enjoy sharing stories of their bad luck. Is it any wonder so many people continue to experience problems in understanding how the law of attraction works for others and not for them?
2 - Remember things will happen when they're supposed to happen.
It's a pretty tough job controlling the small details of the universe, but luckily you don't have to do it. Some people think they should have X happen at a specific time in a specific way for their goal to be achieved. That's not true. Things happen when they will be the most beneficial to you. While everyone wants to see things quickly, they'll come as quickly as they should for your success.
3 - Don't worry about the how, just start focusing on what you want to attract.
Creating a visual daydream on how something is meant to happen can be fun, but not at all productive. Rather than guide your vision through the how, simply focus on the what. By the what, I mean what you want. Trying to figure out all the possibilities for how you'll get something takes bundles of energy that can be used elsewhere. Some people fret that they don't know how they'll achieve a particular desire and that can block them from getting what they want. Instead, just knowing you'll have love, happiness, good health, and wealth without worrying about the how, releases your energy.
4 - You create the energy around you that attracts the circumstances, objects, and situations.
Your emotions (thoughts and feelings) are like a magnet, causing your Reticular Activating System (RAS) to bring the right things into your field of focus. You can be anyone, do anything and have anything you want, but the belief in that is what will open your awareness toward the right opportunities. Understanding the law of attraction and manifestation is like being in control of a magnetic field surrounding you. Learn how to build your future from the magnetic energy in the predominant thoughts you hold.
5 - Make small positive changes each day to see massive results.
You won't change the way you think overnight, so don't try to do it. It's just too hard and you'll end up tackling more than you can handle. Just make a small change each day, a 1% change. Learn something helpful in your job, make an effort to forgive someone or find some joy in the day. Changing your attitude and beliefs compounds and one day, you'll find you're a very different person. You become a better person with a better life, than you were when you started the journey.
