Like Attracts Like

“If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations, and events which conform to our positive expectations.”
~ Shakti Gawain, author of Creative Visualization

Was there ever a person in your life that you knew you were meant to meet and who came along at the perfect time, with the best answer? Miraculously, they had exactly what you needed, as though Serendipity had sprinkled its magic fairy dust over you. This was the Law of Attraction working as your own personal-assistant, bringing about what you wanted. It was because you asked for help that help arrived. ‘Ask and it is given’ is part of the Law – which will bring the right people to your doorstep at the right time.

The Universal Manager

If the principle of vibration works with people, let’s see how it works with our goals too. Think of the Law of Attraction as the great universal manager that assures all thoughts and feelings line up with one another. Every thought and feeling sends out an energetic signal that attracts a matching signal back. Just like radio waves vibrate at a certain frequency — which you can pick up in your car the moment you tune into their exact wavelength — your thought patterns vibrate too, and are ‘picked up’ by those people and things that you desire and that match your signals. So back and forth it goes: the signals resonate with one another until one day, the thing you desire shows up in the world of form.

Sound like a bit of a stretch doesn’t it? But, if you accept the premise that everything is connected and interrelated, and synchronous events are happening on a level that you can’t see, (just like you can’t see radio waves but can hear the sound of music when you’re radio is on) why wouldn’t it work?

Vibration as and Attractor

Think of people as energetic, vibrational beings for a moment. Yes, we are chemical and biological beings, but we also send out energy vibrations that are felt by others. Some of the electrical currents created by our bodies can be measured with EKGs and EEGs, and some are just vibes, ‘picked up’ by our senses. Some people simply walk into a room and the whole place lights up, and most everyone wants to be around them. These attractive people give us the feeling of being uplifted and inspired while others repel, drain and exhaust us. Could it be that we’re responding to energy signals based on how people are thinking, feeling and being?

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Like me, I’m sure you’ve had the experience of meeting somebody for the first time and instantly liking that person. The two of you just ‘connected’ and you both felt as though you’d known each other forever. You were attracted to one another, not romantically speaking although it can be that too. As much as you were drawn to them, you’ve also been equally repelled by other people, right? Beyond physical appearances, something else is going on.

The Law of Attraction says: That which is like unto itself is drawn. This could explain why we feel like ‘two peas in a pod’ with our best friend, and like ‘two ships passing’ with a mere acquaintance.

We are naturally attracted to some people and quite repelled by others; and while there’s nothing tangible on which to base our like or dislike, some people feel ‘right’ and some don’t. And some people put off such ‘bad vibes’ that we can’t wait to get away from them. But what’s interesting is that even these seemingly miserable people have friends. We’ve all heard it said that misery loves company, which explains why negative, critical and complaining people can still find and attract an audience.

You must begin to see yourself as a center of energy living amidst a much vaster, all encompassing field of energy. You are in the soup, so to speak. This means that you can gradually, gently and purposefully raise your own personal energy field to be a highly attractive one, to be sure. And as you do, you greatly increase the speed in which your desires come zooming toward you.

Principle of Vibration: You will attract and manifest the things that match your vibration; and the things you vibrate are always moving toward you

“Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Great living starts with a picture, held in your imagination, of what you would like to do or be.”
~ Harry Emerson Fosdick, Minister

Tips: If you want to raise yourself out of unpleasant circumstances, all you need to do is raise your internal vibration by changing your signals. Like thoughts attract like experiences so when you think about what you’d rather have, it starts happening right away or begins to work its way into your life.

Questions: What requests are you making by the thought signals you’re sending out?

What emotional vibes are you feeling within yourself, and therefore by default, putting into the world?

Affirm: “I like myself, I like myself, I like myself.” “I am wonderful.” “I am healthy, vibrant and light.” “I am always surrounded by supportive, helpful and positive people.”

Try This: If you had a friend who talked to you like you sometimes talk to yourself, would you continue to spend time with that person? If not, just for today, feed only kind and loving messages to yourself. Repeat the above affirmations silently throughout the day today. This will instantly increase your internal vibration which will gradually become a new and totally super-charged pattern of energy emitted from your own personal field.

Positive thoughts vibrate at a higher frequency and enable you to attract the positive things these thoughts vibrate with. Simply start by talking to yourself in a more positive way in this next minute, then in this next hour.
