You’ve watched The Secret, you’ve heard about the “Law of Attraction”, you think you know what it means, although it sometimes feels like a lot of mumbo-jumbo positive thinking stuff and you’re not really sure how it works, if at all.
When I first heard about the Law of Attraction, I intuitively resonated with it. Tried it out for myself, and lo and behold, it worked. What better reason to believe in something than because it works for you? However, part of me still loves an explanation if there’s one to be had, even if it’s just via an analogy.
Dr. Bradley Nelson uses the analogy of tuning forks to demonstrate how like attracts like. Although he makes the analogy to explain how trapped negative feelings attract more of the same, the analogy can be applied to any form of energy, which is what all our thoughts, feelings, emotions etc. are made of. (In fact, everything in this universe is made up of energy, whether it is tangible or not. Refer to Albert Einstien).
Dr. Nelson explains how if you have a number of tuning forks of different sizes (and therefore, different frequencies) in a room, and if you strike one of them, all the other tuning forks in the room that are of the same frequency will start vibrating. He explains that this is “not because of some natural affinity between tuning forks. This is the way our universe works.” *
Similarly, all our thoughts, feelings, emotions etc. each have their own particular frequency, since they are all made up of energy.
Imagine each negative thought you have is a tuning fork vibrating at a specific frequency. What is it attracting? All the other negative vibrations of the same frequency, i.e., more of the same!
Now imagine what happens with each positive, abundant and beautiful thought you have…..
Pick a day, and try this experiment:
Be grateful for 5 things in your life.
Feel happy about these 5 things and smile.
Wear the smile all morning as you go about your day.
See how many strangers smile back at you.
