Are you creating the life of your dreams using the law of attraction? Read on to learn what you might be putting yourself through when using the law of attraction.
The idea of the law of attraction isn’t really bad. It states that you attract what you are (or what you mainly think of). That seems fair. It means that if you are ‘good’ you would be attracting only ‘good’ things to you. And if you are ‘bad’ you’d be attracting ‘bad’ things.
Using this law, if all or majority of us wants good things, then there’ll be more good things that would happen in this world. How wonderful that would be!
But many are failing and have realized that there’s more to the law of attraction than just becoming or thinking more of the things you want to attract in your life.
And I’m not going to talk about those ‘more’ to the law of attraction.
Instead, I’m going to talk about why you should not rely on the law of attraction to create the life of your dreams.
I was into the law of attraction before, around 2011 to 2012. It really seemed logical and fair to me so I followed the suggestions of those people teaching the law of attraction.
Then, someone pointed out to me that the law of attraction is contrary to my Catholic faith. I wondered why such a good thing is contrary to my faith. I got curious and searched for the truth.
I joined a Catholic forum and posed a question hoping to get the members’ insights into the law of attraction.
Most of the members have negative opinions of the law of attraction. I was a bit disappointed.
Then, someone in the forum suggested I could be attracted to the law of attraction because it’s so similar to the golden rule: So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:12 RSVCE
And I realized, that’s it. I was attracted to it because it’s so similar to Matthew 7:12.
Also, there was one reply there that I didn’t realize at the time to be a very valid reason why I should not practice the law of attraction. It was only recently that I discerned that her reply was really golden.
She said that using the law of attraction is like trying to be God yourself. And she mentioned about the Fall, when our first parents were tempted and disobeyed God. They ate of the fruit of the forbidden tree, desiring to be like God, knowing good and evil.
And that is the danger to creating the life of your dreams using the law of attraction. You are like trying to be God.
And that makes it so contrary to the Catholic faith.
We should instead rely on the goodness of God and accept the kind of life He wants for us. And we should not worry because the kind of life He wants for us is the best for us.
I noticed that most of those people who rave about being successful using the law of attraction are not genuine followers of Jesus. Though they talk about God, I sense that they have a different notion of God.
I don’t want to judge them. I’m probably wrong. But one thing I know, I wouldn’t want to believe whatever they believe in, especially if they don’t believe in Jesus as the only way.
I’m reminded of the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. This is just my opinion. I feel that if we are so attracted to material success and we go out of our ways to achieve it like using the law of attraction, we are like giving in to the temptation of the devil who tempted Jesus in the wilderness, promising Him the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them if He would just worship him. I worry that the material success I would gain by using the law of attraction would be delivered by no other than the devil himself. And that’s so scary.
There’s no need to use the law of attraction in creating the life of your dreams. There’s a much better way. It’s actually the best. Abide in Jesus that you may know the truth. And that truth will guide you all the way to the life of your dreams based on God’s plan for you.
