Law of Attraction: Attracting for Others

 

Law of Attraction – Attracting for others (a review)

Are you a fan of the ‘Law of Attraction’?

Not everyone is. I must admit, I was a little sceptical when I first encountered it. A lot of people (wrongly) think its about just imagining want you want so that appears as if by magic. Yes, you have to think positively in order to attract positive things into your life BUT you have to take action as well. Otherwise, nothing will ever happen. After all, its not the things you visualise that will appear all of sudden but the actual opportunities for them to manifest.

In other words, you create your own opportunity to live the life you want to lead by adopting positive beliefs and visualising your goals. These will then appear, because your subconscious will act like a magnet and become attuned to possibilities you have not seen before. (To be fair, this concept is often postulated as psychological facet used in NLP.)

This is the impression I got from reading Dr Joe Vitale’s stuff (who has written many books on the subject and appeared in the hit film The Secret.)

Okay, so that’s how you can attract the life you want for yourself.

But here’s an interesting twist – what about attracting for others?

This is what ‘attracted’ me to buy this e-book when I was looking through my Kindle Fire a little while back. You see, I like doing things for other people if I can and feel that, really, the Law of Attraction is all very well (but can seem a little selfish sometimes.)

Okay, so Dr Joe comes across to me as a pretty unselfish guy anyway. In fact, in his work he often refers to the idea of giving away at least 10% of your income to others as well as making additional donations to worthy causes. He proposes that doing this assists in the circulation of money which will ultimately bring more back to you as you create a powerful and successful wealth mindset. In effect, you give in order to receive – as long as you do it without expectation in return, of course!

The guy who wrote ‘Attracting for Others’, Mathew Dixon, takes this a step further (and with the full backing of Dr Joe.)  He uses the LOA attraction techniques (also know as ‘cosmic ordering’) to attract for others, not himself.

He begins his book by telling something of his own story as to how he got into LOA and became a follower of Vitale’s. He recalls how he met Vitale at a convention and had even started corresponding briefly with him before hearing nothing more. However, he persisted with his investigations into LOA which eventually led him back to Dr Joe and further interactions with the author (mainly due to a mutual interest in music.)

However, the interest in attracting for others came about when he’d read about Dr Joe’s brother wanting a Corvette but not believing that he could ever really own one. Joe had explained the LOA concept to his brother, but the latter refused to believe it. From this, Mathew formed the idea that he could attract the car for Joe’s brother, and later relates the story of how the brother later received it (after Mathew discussed the concept with Joe.) After attracting things for other people Mathew knows, he was able to formulate the idea into an actual form of process – which forms the basis of the book.

Basically, there is a five-step process which you can adopt for others which you can master quite quickly, with sufficient practice. It is important, however, to remember that you shouldn’t just try and select something for somebody just because you think they should have it. It should be based onan  actual desire which you know they have expressed.

This, to me, is a really nice approach because I believe – ultimately – that if you focus on attracting good things for others you will attract a great sense of well-being for yourself by your act of unselfishness.

This book, for me, summed up this belief quite nicely with an interesting narrative about the author’s background and his journey towards the Law of Attraction for Others. Its also a short read which can be completed in an afternoon and is, in many ways, to the point.

As stated above, you can easily learn the five step process (although it probably helps to have some prior knowledge of how LOA is supposed to work before you embark upon it.) Also, there is a link to a free down-loadable ‘Attracting for Others’ logbook where you can record your progress in using the technique by recording what you have attracted and when it has been achieved by the other person. Mathew also explains how using the ‘Attracting for Others’ process can ultimately help you ‘attract’ well-being yourself.

The only downside for me with this little book was that there wasn’t perhaps a little more about the actual attraction process with some more explanation. However, it was a good intro to the subject and certainly was a welcome difference to the usual material in this field. Besides, it does present pretty good value for money given the price of £1.92!

Well worth trying it out if you are interested in the Law of Attraction and fancy taking a different, more unselfish approach. If you are not fully convinced by LOA but are interested in a different perspective to creating a success mindset, this is quite inspirational in terms of how focusing on the needs of others could also assist you in achieving that goal.
