Sceptics and the Law of Attraction

For those who believe, no proof is necessary.
For those who don’t believe, no proof is enough.

The Law of Attraction (LoA) is a universal law that whatever exists in your mind is what you are attracting to you in your life, that the experiences you have in your life are reflections of what’s going on in your mind.

Now, the problem that sceptics have with this is that they refuse to acknowledge their own responsibility in the events of their life.  This is the core of their beliefs.  Therefore, anything that suggests they are responsible for the events of their life is something that they don’t want to hear.  They come up with all kinds of reasons as to why the LoA doesn’t work, including random events in a chaotic universe, or mainly to ridicule the idea that there’s any kind of ‘magical genie’ who can grant us what we want.

They don’t want to be responsible for their own mistakes or bad judgements.  They also feel that the LoA can be ‘evil’, because it promotes blaming victims for the bad things that happen to them.  “Well, you obviously attracted these bad things to you, so you can’t blame the aggressor – you have to blame yourself.”

Unfortunately, they twist what the LoA means, because then they have another reason for them to disbelieve it, and to dislike it.

Since the Law of Attraction is about the universe providing you with experiences that reflect what’s on your mind, then if you think the LoA is bad, you’re going to find reasons coming into your life that ‘prove’ how bad it is, even if those reasons are your thoughts.  For as long as you have a belief about something, you will find the universe giving you experiences, people, thoughts or events that reinforce your beliefs.

When you have a negative outlook on something, you’re only going to find affirmations of that outlook.  The universe gives you what’s on your mind.  So if you’re a sceptic it’s only natural, as per the Law of Attraction, that you are going to attract into your life those things that will confirm your beliefs.

If you’re a believer or a non-believer you will attract things that are in alignment with your beliefs, whatever they might be.  This is the Law of Attraction.

If you’re a believer and you find yourself talking to a sceptic and you’re trying to convince them that the LoA works – stop it.  Your efforts are going to be wasted, because they’re not going to listen to you.  They have their own beliefs, and they attract experiences that only confirm their beliefs.  To them, all you’re doing is speaking gibberish, and they think you’re a loony, because what you speak of is outside anything they can comprehend. So stop trying.

Instead, focus your efforts on your own life.  Attract to yourself those people who are going to provide you with value, who are going to help you reach what you’re aspring to.  Devote your energy to helping yourself grow, and others that want to grow with you.

Also, when you try to convince others that your way of thinking is better, you’re not doing them any favours.  They’re entitled to their own lives, their own beliefs, and the results of their own choices, just as much as you are.  Let them live the life that they’re attracting for themselves, and be happy that they’ll get from it whatever they need to.

Also, think about what it means to you if you’re attracting sceptics into your life.  Maybe there’s a part of you that’s sceptical as well, and you’re seeking affirmation of those things you’re sceptical about.  Try to work out what your experiences mean to you, and what it is that you’re attracting.

If you don’t like what you’re attracting, then change what you’re predominantly thinking about, and start attracting something different.  Devote your thoughts to what you want, rather than on what you don’t want.  The universe is giving you everything that’s on your mind – the good and the bad.

Work on increasing the good in your life by thinking less about the bad.  It’s a concept that applies to everyone – even the sceptics.
