How to Convince Other People About the Law of Attraction
Careful. This title is a bit sneaky. Think about it for a minute and let’s start talking about why you would even want to convince someone about the law of attraction. Maybe you just discovered its existence. It’s as exciting as finding out that magic is real and now you want to tell everyone about it. This can be wonderful but depending on who you are talking to and how strong your beliefs are surrounding this new information, it could also be challenging. The conversation could turn into a debate but even without going to that extreme, the other person’s doubtful thinking could dominate the conversation and make you wobbly in your new beautiful feeling.
But there are other reasons you have to be careful when trying to talk to other people about the deliberate creation world. Let’s say your brother keeps saying mean things to you. And you tolerate him with great patience for a while, but eventually you just can’t help it and you tell him he’s only attracting negative situations to himself by saying mean things. Here’s what I say. That’s just a fancy way of saying “I’m rubber and you’re glue, whatever you say, bounces off me and sticks to you!”. Be honest, in that moment, are you really holding your brother’s best interest in mind? It sounds more like you are trying to get back at him—not a position of high positivist. Or possibly you could be trying to control his behavior by using the law of attraction as an excuse. This is not the best approach either. Placing focus on controlling other people’s behavior instead of on deliberately choosing a thought that feels good (such as imagining your family living together in harmony) makes you feel powerless. Most of the time it is not possible to control other people. You can always decide what to think about however.
Hopefully by now you can see what’s sneaky about convincing people about the law of attraction. Trying to talk someone into seeing things your way can get you into trouble, or at least it could distance you from your good feelings. Just think of what it means to convince—it involves overcoming another person’s resistance. This is a form of struggling and according to the law of attraction, it will only get more intense the longer you focus on it. This is not an enjoyable feeling and it will only attract more feelings, people and situations which will require struggling.
But what to do if you want everyone to see how amazing and wonderful the law of attraction is? You could teach by example, by showing the people in your life what living from a place of joy can look like. When you think of people, picture them the way you wish them to be—as excited and happy about the law of attraction as you are. And in situations where you are tempted to control others, it’s really about focusing on convincing yourself about the law of attraction. In the sense that you need to remember and believe that it is enough for you to focus on your thoughts and feelings for the law of attraction to bring you people and situations you enjoy. It’s about being so convinced of the existence of the law of attraction that you are freed from the need to convince and control other people.
